About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.25 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Thank you for viewing Kay Caye! Tremendous BEACH and OCEAN VIEW...3rd row from the expansive beach. This home is located in the desirable Holiday Beach subdivision, which is close to the Gulf Coast Market 'Big Store' for convenient shopping!

Guests will need to provide their own towels and bed sheets.

You can listen to the waves, view the amazing stars, and want to come back for more!

Sleeps 10: 2 Queen Beds, 2 Twin Bunk Beds, and a double 'click clack' sleeper.

Kay Caye is a wonderful beach getaway with unequal views of the Gulf of Mexico, a large covered deck for socializing outside, huge space under the house to enjoy the shade and grill, and have a refreshing outdoor shower - a big hit with beachgoers! The sizeable kitchen has all you will need for hosting your vacation in style. Downstairs you will appreciate covered parking, a handy sand shower, and a charcoal grill.

Crystal Beach is a 15-minute ferry ride to Galveston, TX, which offers every available amenity, to include theaters, shopping, amusement and swim parks, Moody Gardens, the Strand, and other historical adventures like the Grand 1894 Opera House, the Bishop's Palace, and the Moody Mansion. Three cruise ship lines (Carnival, Royal Caribbean, and Disney) operate from Galveston, allowing you to extend your cruise vacation with a stay at the beach. Birding is also a major attraction, check out several of the National Wildlife Refuges in the area through the Texas Parks and Wildlife website.

About Dawn Bloomer

We have a lot of family here and we all love going to Crystal Beach. When the house is rented and we are not using it; we enjoy going to basketball games, shopping, and planning the next getaway vacation for the year. We hope you love your time in Crystal Beach as much as we do.

Dawn Bloomer purchased this house in 2010

Why Dawn Bloomer chose Crystal Beach

We had property on Crystal Beach before Ike, which was damaged. After Ike, we purchased this lot and built. Its floor plan is similar to Luna Bella's (163462), so we now have the choice of two homes to enjoy in Crystal Beach. Kay Caye is close to the GCM Big Store, so it's very convenient in case you need anything from the grocery/hardware store.

What makes this house unique

Shelling, beach walks, family time, cooking, and entertaining friends/neighbors are a few of the pleasures.

Guestbook comments from the manager

First time our family rented a beach house and we had such a wonderful time. Such a cute house - thanks for sharing this with us! Great weather and we cooked crab. Very delicious.

The house was perfect and very well equipped. The views are beautiful and the house is a short walk to the water. It’s located in the Holiday Beach subdivision. We enjoyed our weekend getaway and are planning on returning again! We even watched dolphins from the balcony before we left.

May be 2nd row, but 1st rate ocean view!

  • 5 of 5

We came for some much needed R&R after traveling for work the last 2 years and had a great time. It wasn't near long enough though, that's for sure. We have rented several houses over the past few years here (and in other states too), and this one is by far the best equipped home yet! It's also in really great shape too. And the view, even though there is a house directly in front of you, you don't really even notice because the lots on either side are empty and you can see plenty! And hear the waves as well! Ahhh, I love that sound! :) I was pleasantly surprised to find cleaning products under the sink as most homes do not supply this. They even had a few spare rolls of toilet paper, though I did bring a 4 pack and left what we didn't use to help replenish. The same with paper towels, there were extra under the sink, though I did bring our own roll too. Don't forget your pillows and sheets, and if you have something you can hang over the door for hanging clothes, the master bedroom doesn't have a closet. We hung our few items on the back of the door in the bathroom on a small hook we found on another door. There are closets and dressers in the other rooms so you could use those instead. Just a thought. Lots of games and things for kids too. Lots of chairs on the deck, even hooks for a hammock! The owners of this home have literally thought of everything and we're so very grateful to have had the chance to stay in their very lovely home. You'll definitely not be disappointed in your stay, so go ahead and make that reservation! :)

Excellent stay, with excellent views of the ocean

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at this property. The owners were very responsive and friendly and accommodated our last minute request for a stay. The property was clean and well maintained. There was plenty of room for our group of 6. The decor was fantastic and had a refreshing beach theme. Our family had an awesome stay. The only small issue we had was with the lockbox, we arrived in the dark and couldn’t find it. The owner helped us out, and everything was perfect after that.
