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 of the Texas Gulf Coast

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!

Birthday weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was our 1st trip to Crystal Beach. Brought our ATV's and loved riding the beach. We enjoyed the golf cart parade Saturday morning along the beach and our grandson caught candy and beads. This beach is only 4 hours from our home and we plan on coming back.

It was a good 2 days.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay, we were close enough to the beach to walk. We would have liked to be closer to the water to fully enjoy the waves and sounds from the deck ,but we could see and hear some. 2 of our party had trouble getting up and down the stairs due to physical issues.

We loved the fact that we had a short walk to the beach and there were beach toys for the kids.

We have stayed many places over the past 40 years. This is by far the very best and we plan to return many more times.

Perfect girls vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This place was fantastic! We came for my sisters 50th Bday and could not have asked for anything more! Great views and close to the beach! VERY clean and comfortable! We stay at VRBO homes all over and this home was by far the best! It had quality kitchen appliances and supplies! The wrap around deck is where we spent most of our time! We will be back for sure!! :)

Great Stay

  • 4 of 5

The house was clean and came with a lot of things needed to feel at home! The view from the balcony was awesome and we loved sitting listening to the waves at night! Thanks for a great stay!
