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 Crystal Beach

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!

Family week

  • 4 of 5

This home is super. Each son had a room with the grandkids in the bunk room. Plenty of space and very quiet. It must have internal insulation. One night, we lost electricity due to a storm and while there was a flashlight, it had no batteries. Wish that would be corrected. Be prepared to have a gentle shaking. The house sways when there are people walking around. It was actually relaxing and a great warning that others were up and about. The reason it wasn't a 5 star stay was the hours we spent cleaning. We aren't dirty people but wanted to show our appreciation to the owner by leaving it clean. However, I wish I could have paid someone to do it. It kinda ruins the week to work so hard at the end. Thanks for letting us use your home.

Owner's Response: Thank you Cora for your review. I appreciate you taking the time. We have had some pretty scary storms this year including Hurricane Harvey. I am very sorry that the batteries were not working in the flashlight. We will definitely take care of that. We strive very hard to earn 5 stars. I am sorry that there was obviously a miscommunication regarding the cleaning. You actually paid a cleaning fee when you booked your reservation. We have the home professionally clean between each rental. In addition, the email that I sent with check in and out info stated upon check up we request that you just sweep, take out the garbage and load the dishwasher. I apologize that you spent so much time cleaning. We hope that you will come back and next time we will be able to achieve 5 stars. Thank you again for your review and choosing "Street's Retreat."
