About Margaret Beasley

As high school sweethearts at Deer Park High School in the late 60's we always loved saltwater! So even tho we moved to East Texas in the 70's, we never lost our love for saltwater fishing, crabbing and combing the beach. Now retired, we spend most of our time in Crystal Beach as our son and his family live there as well, so we get to be involved with them!

Crystal Beach is a small community with a big heart, the folks here are just really nice! Seems there is always something going on, but yet it's quiet and relaxing, perfect scenario!

When we decided to build The Spoonbill (one of my favorite birds), we wanted a cool beach atmosphere with a little cottage eclectic it turned out, we love it! It's our hopes that others will come spend some time here to enjoy our home and community. Beware...just smelling the salt air is contagious that makes you want to keep coming back!

Margaret Beasley purchased this house in 2013

Wonderful beach vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

The Spoonbill was a perfect beach vacation home in Crystal Beach! It was very clean, beautifully decorated, and well-stocked. Margaret was so helpful during our stay, going above and beyond most rental property owners. Our family loved the mezzanine level and the close proximity to the beach. We will definitely stay here again!

Good and not so good

  • 3 of 5

The house was great and the set up was roomer.

The Wi-Fi was horrible. It was not full access Wi-Fi. It was shared and only had a guest login, so it was limited.

For the price, I felt the home should have been cleaner. The first night we were there, we found two roaches (alive) in the living space, so we moved the furniture to check for more and found a lot of dirt under couches. The furniture in the living room was very old, worn and dirty.

The dining room table was glass and not functional.

The bedrooms were great and the beds were all very comfortable. The middle out door area was fantastic and the neighbors were quite and respectful.

Spoonbill was Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Spoonbill was perfect in anyway imaginable! Margaret was very helpful and accommodating, sweet lady! The home was very very clean, and the decor was so homey it did not feel like a "rental property" as everything in the house was carefully thought out and hand picked for character. The location to the beach was perfect, we had several small families with young children and it was convenient to have the home so close for naps and breaks. The mezzanine deck is where we spent 99% of our time, excellent views and comfy furniture to relax in after a day on the beach. Only thing I would suggest is to pack a fan for outside relaxing, it's Texas and it is HOT! :) We will definitely be planning another stay at the fabulous Spoonbill!

Crystal Beach
Car: recommended

Located in the 'Heart of Crystal Beach' where you can enjoy a stroll to the beach with direct access 300' away, no vehicle necessary. The beach is the main attraction where we like to 'treasure' hunt, make sand castles and relaxing. Fishing is a passion for us, whether in the surf or bay. While bay fishing requires a boat, there are numerous fishing guides in the area.

A favorite pass time, crabbing! It's fun for all ages and great to eat!

Here we are surrounded by National Wildlife Refuges so put birding at the top of your list of must-do!
