About Peggy McDonald

Crystal Beach was our 'home away form home' for many years. We recently moved to the peninsula and Crystal Beach is now our permanent residence.

Peggy McDonald purchased this house in 2008

Why Peggy McDonald chose Gulf Coast

While Galveston is just a free ferry ride away, we like the peace and quiet of Crystal Beach. We enjoy watching beautiful sunrises and sunsets from the deck and stargazing at night. And of course, the beaches are fantastic.

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location!! Our cabin is just a short walk to the beach and close to anything and everything you may need, whether it's the gocery store, the shops and restaurants, the marina, or the water slide. It's all right there!!! WiFI is available.

Nice, Clean and had all Amenities needed.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed during Hurricane Harvey and the weather didn't keep us from having a great time. House was clean and comfortable and we had everything we needed. Johnie and Peggy were so nice and helped us with a vacation problem that was so appreciated! Great place to stay with Great Owners! Look forward to coming back again soon.

Great clean cabin with everything you could possibly need! Great location with water view from the deck. The owners are very accommodating and easy to work with. My 3 dogs and myself really enjoyed our last minute stay.

Second stay - Great as the First Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at Johnie Macs and we will be back again. Although not oceanfront, you can see the ocean from the deck. We have a jeep and enjoy the easy access to the beach such that we can drive to the perfect spot to enjoy the beach. House is well equipped with all needed and Peggy is extremely efficient and quick to respond to questions. Wifi worked great. Just a great place to relax.

Grandkids weekend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Johnie Macs for the weekend with my two daughters, son-in-law, grandbaby and a friend. We had an amazing time! Johnie Macs was everything we hoped it would be. We were able to enjoy time on the beach as well as at the house. The quick access to the beach made it easy for us to travel back and fourth with a toddler. The house was perfect in every way! Thanks again for an amazing weekend! We will definitely rent again!

Enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

Husband and I took our 14 month old daughter and my parents on vacation to see the ocean. We stayed at Johnie Macs and it was prefect. The house had everything we needed, was within walking distance to the beach and very affordable. Peggy and Johnie were a pleasure and very accommodating. We will definitely rent again.

Great Week!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the cabin and the beach. The cabin was close enough to the beach to walk or ride in golf cart. The cabin was clean, updated and had everything we needed for our stay. We are going to make this a regular family getaway each year and will rent this cabin!
