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

This Beach House is awesome. Different levels for fun and relaxation.

  • 5 of 5

Four of my girlfriends and myself stayed for two nights. It went so quickly. Margaret, the owner was inviting and caring. Each setting in the beach house was thought out for your convenience and pleasure. All the way down to plugs and lights by each bed for individual comfort. The place was clean and very comfortable. Will plan to stay in the future.

Thank you. Pam C.

We also were very impressed with the willingness of the owner to make sure everything was just right. It was a great experience staying there!!

WONDERFUL get away.

  • 5 of 5

This beach house was excellent in accomodations. Completely stocked with all amenities.

Beautiful beachy decor throughout. Cool A.C. for hot August weather.The super sizzler price was perfect for our group. The owners were helpful & considerate in every detail.

Keep in mind the 3 flights of stairs which most in our party could navigate ok. Even our 93 yr. old aunt managed it. The neighbors houses are close enough for saying "Good Morning",

but if you're not sociable you can stay inside & watch the big screen T.V.

The beach is close for morning walks. A memorable & pleasant experience.

Great space for relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Your house was great for the entire family. It was just short walk to the beach each day for an early morning walk and then the little ones played in the sand all morning. We took family walks on the beach in the evenings. And found lots and lots of hermit crabs. There was plenty of room for everyone and the beds were very comfortable. We spent a lot of time on the party deck just relaxing and enjoying the sound of the ocean. It is a great space and we enjoyed our stay. Thank you for your hospitality and sharing your home.

Ideal House for entertainment

  • 5 of 5

The second floor deck is perfect for kids and adults alike. We spent 90% of our time there. The kitchen / restroom with wide open area of tables, couch, and hammocks make entertaining a group a breeze.

The interior decorations and bedding were amazing. It was a wonderful vacation.

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!
