Beach Bumming w/ Style; Family Friendly Home - Crystal Beach, Tx

Bedrooms 3
Space 2,100 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 5 nights


About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Bring the kids and stay a while! Our spacious family home has two bedrooms downstairs, each with a full bed, and gorgeous master suite upstairs, complete with a wet bar and jetted oversized tub. There are four porches for your relaxation, two sunlit and two covered, each with its own beautiful view.

Our house is located at the end of a cul-de-sac in a family friendly neighborhood with no vehicle beach access. That means very little traffic for your short walk to the beach. If you brought a golf cart, no problems here either as our subdivision has a golf cart accessible public dune crossover also.

The kitchen has granite countertops and flat top stove with an integrated grill and is fully equipped with all you need. The kitchen and living room are open and spacious, with plenty of room for a crowd. We have an expandable dining room table that seats 8 and the island seats 4. Or, if your crowd prefers dining alfresco, there is a large picnic bench under the house, perfect for the family lunch.

We are in Sand Castle subdivision, close to Stingaree Restaurant and the The Big Store and a free ferry ride to all of Galveston’s attractions.

So come out and enjoy the peace, the quiet and a sky full of stars.

About Jonathan Domsalla

We are a family of 5, that loves spending time together at the beach. We enjoy building sand castles, walking on the beach looking for seashells, playing in the surf, as well as sailing off the beach on our catamaran.

Jonathan Domsalla purchased this house in 2006

Why Jonathan Domsalla chose Crystal Beach

The neighborhood is fairly quite, with limited through traffic. Our end of the street has a large clear area where the kids can play on their bikes, scooters and skate boards. The walk to the beach is fairly short, with drive on accesses only a couple streets up. The beach in front of our neighborhood is fairly quite since there is not direct drive on accesses.

Loved our stay!

We have a big family with lots of little kids. This house was perfect, plenty of space for all of the kids, close to the beach, and my husband and I loved all the porches outside. Looking forward to our next stay!

Beach bumming

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our trip to the beach and stay at the Sandcastle

The host was very accommodating and let us move our weekend when we had a family emergency The house is roomy and comfortable and the master bedroom is huge with a huge bathroom

Our only complaint was that the kitchen was not completely equipped with things for gormet cooking which we love to do

simple cookiing would be fine The house is a bit back from the beach so there is a bit of a walk to get to the beach but there is a golf cart access path in the neighborhood to get to the beach

overall it was a great weekend

Wonderful Experience!

  • 5 of 5

From the beginning, the owners of the house were very responsive and when I had a special request regarding arrival, they worked with me. The house is very comfortable, including the beds. Everything we needed was there - dishes, cooking pans & utensils, flatware, towels, etc. It was like staying in your best friend's awesome beach home while they were gone! All of my rather large family enjoyed the house and accomodations. I liked the decor, the floorplan, my bed, the bathrooms, the decks for morning coffee, the kitchen, the laundry room with a huge sink, the outdoor shower, grill and picnic table. The owners were very accommodating and nice when I couldn't figure out the AC thermostat. Tropical places have mosquitoes, so we used Citronella candles and Off! spray, as recommended in a previous post.

I definitely plan on returning to this house for future vacations. It was very welcoming and enjoyable!
