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!

Perfect Beach Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely Fabulous! We are two families who always vacation together. This time we each had our adult children with us and a few grandchildren to boot. Street's Retreat was the perfect location! It is a second row house, but being on the corner gave us a straight shot to the beach. We could set up camp on the beach within eye sight of the house so it was easy to see where the other members of our group were and what they were doing. The house was large and very spacious. Even with multiple of us in the kitchen working on meals at the same time we had plenty of room. The deck is also roomy and has a great view of the ocean and the night sky. The other thing we really loved about Street's Retreat was that every bedroom had its own bathroom. Most of the other rentals we looked into had a max of two. With so many bathrooms, it made showers and baths so much easier!

Aside from just lounging around on the beach, we spent our days fishing and crabbing and walking the beach looking for seashells. I have never found so many whole shells at one time! We also rented a golf cart from Golf Car Connection and it was so much fun! It was delivered within minutes of our arrival and we used it constantly! My favorite was using it for sand crab hunting at night!

We did not really eat out while we were there (We are quite familiar with the area because we live in the Houston area and make day trips down all the time. Tiki Hut which is very near Street's Retreat is awesome as is the Stingaree Restaurant!)... we took full advantage of the spaciousness of the house and just cooked our meals there. You can get most of what you need at the Big Store, but selection is limited and it is a bit pricier than the stores at home.

My only complaint is that the vacation ended too soon. If I could afford it, I'd stay there all summer! This vacation is one that we will remember for a LONG time to come! Thank you Ms. Overstreet!!
