About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6 (6 adults)

Escape to the wide open beaches of the Bolivar Peninsula at this two-bedroom Crystal Beach home, a colorful coastal retreat with an elevated wrap-around deck, a dog-friendly living space, and easy walking access to the Gulf of Mexico.

This elevated home overlooks the turquoise Gulf waters in Crystal Beach, a small community on the tranquil Bolivar Peninsula. Take a one-block stroll to catch the sunrise on the beach, hop on the Galveston-Port Bolivar ferry 11 miles west to cross the channel to Galveston Island, or spend your days birdwatching in the Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge 35 miles northeast.

Decorated with vibrant prints and cheerful shades of blue, the living space features tile floors, plentiful seating, and free WiFi throughout. Flip on the ceiling fans to circulate the Gulf breezes, use the stainless steel appliances to whip up pancakes in the kitchen each morning, and bring your coffee and newspaper outside to the wrap-around deck to admire the Gulf view.

Spend each morning swimming and boogie boarding at the beach down the road, and return to the house for lunch at the picnic table on the patio. Leash up your dogs and explore the neighborhood on foot (please note that a two-dog limit and a nightly pet fee apply), and come home to catch a movie on one of the three cable TVs as your bathing suits spin in the private washer/dryer.

Explore miles of sand and surf on the Bolivar Peninsula - begin planning your getaway to Crystal Beach today!

About Vacasa, TX - Texas Gulf Coast Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.

Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.

Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Great Vacation at Crystal Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great vacation. We loved the location, 360 degree deck, full kitchen, and size of the home. The neighborhood is quiet and the locals are friendly.

Crystal Cottage on Crystal Beach Texas

  • 5 of 5

I can not begin to tell you what a wonderful time we had staying in your cottage. It was the most enjoyable and relaxing vacation we have had. The cottage was like being home but with all the extra goodies you don’t have at home. We had everything we needed and the cottage was absolutely amazing and the deco was very pretty also. Our dog just loved the surround porch as she chased the birds all around it as they flew, she had a wonderful time also. We will surely be coming back for another stay at this cottage. Thank you for the warm and inviting atmosphere in your cottage.
