About Kimberly Parker

Dana and Sarah are retired educators and are from Southeast Texas. They are Christians who enjoy family, friends and their church home. They love the beach and would like for others to enjoy their cozy cottage in Crystal Beach as well!

Kimberly Parker purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Kimberly Parker chose Crystal Beach

Its a great location! 4th Row from the water but no houses on the first two rows so there's still an ocean view and a short 2 minute walk to the beach from the bottom step!

What makes this cottage unique

Our cottage is $200 per day, no matter what season it is.

There will always be an additional $50 charge on every holiday.

The cabin was extremely nice and cozy. The location was perfect distance to the beach and extremely accessible. It's a lovely place to bring your family and relax.

Nice view at a nice price.

  • 4 of 5

The staff and owners were very accommodating and courteous. For being a 4th row house, it has a great view. It seems to be an older home amongst all new homes. Very nice neighborhood with no vehicle beach access so beach area was clean and not crowded. House feels personalized and homey. Just 1 full bathroom upstairs. We had a great time!

Good, but with a catch

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed the property. It's close to the beach, very comfortable and clean. I would have given it 5 stars, but they kept part of our cleaning deposit. I have stayed in a lot of beach houses and that has never happened before. Something to be aware of.
