A Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The beach house was fabulous & we loved the neighborhood. Very friendly neighbor's & quiet. The beach is very welcoming. You can drive on the beach, rent a golf cart and even have bonfires.

The property was immaculate and the house had all the amenities, down to the laundry soap. The house is set up perfectly with a bedroom in each corner of the house all separated by the bathrooms and living room area so no a joining walls makes them more private. We loved the deck with the great water views on both sides. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you needed, even the spices. We loved the decor, very homey. The owner was extremely helpful and easy going and always willing to help, if we had a question...very attentive to our needs. We will definitely stay here again in the future.

Loved my Crystal Beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

I love the ease of just walking to the beach everyday. The beach house was beautiful and spotless, all we had to do was unpack and relax. Rode the ferry to Galveston and went shopping on the strand. Went to Winnie flea market and found missing pieces for my collections of glassware and still had time to get back to beach for a walk. Can't think of a more relaxing way to spend vacation!

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This property was very clean, and proximity to the beach was great! Our family of 11 stayed here quite comfortably. I first looked at rentals in Galveston, but I am so happy I went with this property instead. It felt very serene at the beach, and we had so much privacy ... not the overpopulated beaches at Galveston nor the traffic and commercialism. Yet, you can easily hop on the free ferry and go to Galveston to enjoy Pleasure Pier or shop for souvenirs. The house is quaintly decorated, and none of us wanted to leave. And, after 7 years of dating, my son decided "it's about time" and proposed to his girlfriend on the beach. This place and the memories we made here will always be special to us!
