3/2 beach home on 2nd row. WEEKLY RENTALS ONLY DURING SUMMER MONTHS
Stones Throw is 2nd row in a quiet area, with lots of full-time residents nearby. The beach is easily accessible by walking down the road, about 100 steps. Reliable wifi, great views, easy beach access and the open, airy feel of our "home away from home" make Stones Throw a great choice for your Crystal Beach vacation.
The Master Suite is decorated in soothing colors. It has a king size bed, an oversized tub, and a separate entrance to the porch for sneaking out with that first cup of coffee to watch the sun come up over the ocean. The second bedroom is decorated in bright colors and has a queen-sized bed with a new memory foam mattress, and a great view of the beach. The 3rd bedroom has two antique twin beds and is decorated in a cat theme. Bring your own sheets and towels as linens are not provided.
The fully stocked kitchen is open to the dining room, which is furnished with large, comfortable furniture and decorated in a tropical theme, perfect for lingering over family mealtime.
Enjoy a great night's sleep in the 3 private bedrooms, all of which have a reading light, a clock, a fan, and extra pillows.
We provide plenty of beach chairs and toys, and crabbing gear is also available for your use.
Inside we have books and games for all ages.
We make every effort to have the basics for you upon arrival: toilet paper, coffee filters, basic spices, etc. All beds have mattress pads, comforters and pillows. Anything you forget can be purchased at The Big Store, less than a mile away.

Why Owner chose Crystal Beach
We love Crystal Beach for too many reasons to name! Galveston is just a fun ferry ride away and has everything you might want for your entertainment on a vacation, but if you just want to get away from it all, you don't need to leave the Bolivar Peninsula. The Big Store has everything you might need; there are local fisherman to buy fresh seafood from, and great restaurants too! From early morning walks at sunrise until cocktail hour on the shady front porch, we relax and enjoy the constant ocean breezes, the smell of the salt air, and the sound of the waves crashing on the shore. Thanksgiving is a particularly special time for us to convene in Crystal Beach, but we love it at all times of year and think you will too.
What makes this House unique
Our house is in the 'Noisy Waves' sub-division, which is a family-friendly area between Emerald II and Holiday Beach, about 1 mile west of the Big Store and 11 miles east of the ferry landing.

This is a lovely house with a beautiful view. It was very clean and had lots of kitchen necessities. My only complaint is that there are no linens provided, which is buried towards the end of the description. We ended up spending $89 on cheap sheets and towels that we will never use again.
We really enjoyed our stay at Stones Throw. The house was comfortable and clean...but the best part is the view and location to the beach. Literally a 2 minute walk. Extremely reasonable rate for the house...keeping this on my list for next time we need a weekend getaway.
This is a rather late review but I must acknowledge our fabulous, short but sweet stay. Lisa, our stay at your property was very relaxing. The amenities offered were exceptional and the property was stocked with everything imaginable and well furnished. Stores, restaurants and shops are all close by and the beach is just a very short walk. We have traveled a lot and this is by far the best value out there. Thank you for the extending the flexibility of time. I would say we did not have a single complaint but....we do, we did not want to leave!! *Chuckles* We absolutely cherished every minute we spent at your beautiful home. Everything was perfect! Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience.
Wonderful family getaway
We loved our stay here! Our family of four, with a four year old and a six year old, had the best time. This cabin is 100% family friendly. There are tons of games to play to keep you busy if it rains, and a shed full of items the owner allows you to use. No need to bring chairs, toys, games, grill, ice chest or any kitchen items. This house is fully stocked with all you need. The owner also allows you to use the garage, which is wonderful if you are a jeeper. We were able to put our top and doors securely in the garage as needed. You are located within 100 yards of the beach and can walk or drive down. We woke up each morning to the sounds of waves. My family can not wait to come back in the summer!! Also, the owner is more than willing to answer any questions you have quickly and had a wonderful book with info of all the local places to go. Thank you so much for a wonderful time!!!
Relaxing beach retreat
This house is our best beach rental yet. Well stocked with cooking supplies (even a tea kettle), close to the big store and Ocean Grill restaurant, and in a quiet area. We will definitely stay here again!
I have been travelling to the Gulf Coast for a beach vacation since I was a young child. I love taking my family now and finding the perfect house is always a challenge. The biggest issue with me is the cleanliness of the house. Since most rentals are rented week after week, it's not uncommon to find the house a mess. I was extremely pleased with this rental because it was super clean when we arrived--bathrooms, kitchen, fridge, furniture, floors all very clean. The layout of the house was perfect for our family of four, and the beds were very comfortable. The house is a quick and easy walk to the beach, even when someone had to run back for food or a bathroom trip. The porch has nice high wooden chairs so you can actually see the gulf from the balcony without having the wooden rail obstruct your view. We had access to a closed in garage that was empty, so we were able to store our beach gear and gas burner when we weren't using it. There is a downstairs shower with hot and cold water which is super useful after a beach day. The grocery store, a gas station, and several restaurants are very close. Lisa was extremely easy to get in touch with, although I only needed to contact her with a "TV" question. I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a nice, clean, well equipped place to stay for a very reasonable price.
