Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12

Street's Retreat is a beautiful beach side cottage with great views and all the conveniences of a modern home!

If you are looking for a beach cabin where everyone has their own space, this is the place. With 4 bedrooms and 4 baths, this is one of the only rental cabins where every bedroom has it's own bathroom! There are two bedrooms downstairs (on the main floor) and two bedrooms upstairs. Three bedrooms have queen size beds (All have been replaced as of 11/14) and one bedroom has a full size bed. The smallest bedroom downstairs shares it's bathroom with the hall in order for your guests to have access as well. One bedroom upstairs also has two additional full size built-in bunk beds! All bedrooms have their own cable TV for those late night movies or when the kids want to plug in their PlayStation/Xbox's!

The house has its own dedicated WiFi signal just in case you need to send that last email or need to get on the internet.

You can wash the sand out of your bathing suits in the stackable washer/dryer so that you don't go home with any dirty laundry. Did I mention when you get back from the sandy beach that you can just rinse off in our enclosed downstairs sand shower!!! If you aren't too sandy then just rinse your feet off with the foot sprayer at the bottom of the stairs!

Everyone will feel like part of the action in the fully furnished kitchen that opens into the great/family room with it's 20ft. ceilings! The couch and loveseat is just the place to catch a nap or watch a little television. You'll also notice the dining room table is a beautiful custom table made from reclaimed wood that was from historical homes destroyed during Hurricane IKE in 2008.

After dinner you'll want to go for a leisurely walk to look for sea shells down the beach while the sun sets or just hang out on the deck in a lounge chair and listen to the waves take all the stress away!!

Wherever or whatever you decide to do at Street's Retreat you will not go wrong. Remember, your on vacation.....relax and enjoy!!!!

About Jenny Overstreet

My wife and I grew up about an hour from Crystal Beach and each of us have our own fond memories of being on the beach while growing up in this area. After having three wonderful kids, we knew we wanted to get a beach house so that they could make their own great memories with their friends and family. We always feel relaxed and are able to shed the stress away from whatever is going on with our jobs, etc. Even though the city is just a short drive away, we always feel like we are on an island!!

Jenny Overstreet purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Jenny Overstreet chose Gulf Coast

Our family had bought this as an investment in 2005. After having the property for just a short period, we realized that we loved the area so much that we just couldn't sale it and decided to keep it for ourselves. We did a complete remodel in 2007 only to have Hurricane IKE completely level the house in 2008 after the house had stood for 51 years! We didn't think twice about rebuilding because of all the great times and many memories that we have down at the beach.

What makes this cabin unique

The location of this house in such a family-friendly area and the incredible views make this house one of the best in Crystal Beach. Having 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms makes it very nice for older kids, other couples, or even other families that are vacationing together! Having the clean, vacant lot in front of our house is a huge plus for the kids or just so that you are guaranteed a great view of the beach forever!

Wonderful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about Street's Retreat! Our Sunday School class, eleven of us, had a wonderful time there. We cooked, played games, laughed, sunned on the beach, and praised God for the fantastic weekend. The kitchen was amazing, well stocked with everything needed (and then some) for cooking. The proximity to the beach was great. We really liked the fact that it had four bathrooms (girls need lots of bathrooms!!!). This house was perfect for us. If coming to the beach again, we want to stay here!

Wonderful place for a reunion!

  • 5 of 5

Six friends who have known each other since first grade met at Streets Retreat for a perfect 3-day reunion. Everything was perfect about the house-four bedrooms and four bathrooms, view of the beach, and well-equipped house. The house was wonderfully furnished and decorated. It met our needs perfectly. The owner and the property manager responded quickly to questions and needs. We loved every minute of our stay last week! Oh, I forgot to mention the wonderful dinners we had at nearby restaurants. We hope to return in the future, and I would love to bring my family. Thanks again!
