About Margene Walz
Hi, Welcome to my home – My name is Margene Walz. I am the owner and am thrilled to show you around. Many years ago I moved to California from Nebraska but have always missed the mid-western values and hospitality. Through the advice of my brother Mike Walz of Crystal Beach's Walz Family Builders I seized the opportunity to sell my California condominium and built on Bolivar. I appreciate the area and the hospitality. It is like coming back to my roots. I am very pleased to be able to share my home with you. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. (By the way...the picture is of my great nephew, Alex. He photographs cuter than I do.)
Margene Walz purchased this House in 2014
Why Margene Walz chose Crystal Beach
Since my brother owns a home and a business in Crystal Beach I have visited many times. Each time I fell more and more in love with the area. I decided to invest my retirement money here and I can't wait to share this peaceful stress-free beach with you.
What makes this House unique
The front deck is 16' deep - 8' is covered and 8' is uncovered. Guests are able to enjoy the shade, read, sip a glass of wine or beer or tan in the sunshine. The deck which wraps around 3 sides of the house has private doors from the Master bedroom and Guest bedroom. Each has its own romantic personal space. But the most impressive thing about this home is the spectacular beach front view. The family area under the house includes an enclosed shower, bar with enclosed refrigerator and 2 built-in picnic tables. It is a wonderful area that will accommodate many family members and guests. Plus it offers you all the comforts of home with the additional bonus of hearing and watching the surf.

This is our second time to stay at Pelican Bay for 4th of July. We love this section of beach with less traffic and lots of open space!
The house really has everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We travel from North texas and pack most everything else we might want. Scheduled a grocery pick up at Walmart on the drive down to avoid some of the higher prices of the Big store. We didn’t do much away from the house and beach aside from buying ice and a few essentials we ran out of mid trip.
I joined several Facebook groups related to Bolivar Peninsula so I can stay informed of what’s happening in the area and also check the weather leading up in order to be prepared... Mosquitoes were like aggressive little vultures this year! We had a good bit of rain as well.
We loved our stay, always wish it could be longer and we leave dreaming of ways to have our own house on Bolivar. My girls keep asking to go back and we’ve only been home a few days.
Great place to stay.
Always have a good time there.
we only spent 2 nights and 3 days at the home and it was amazing. view of the Ocean was great. plenty of room for everyone. we will be back next year and plan on staying longer. Margene thank you for everything!
Home away from home
Always enjoy our stay here has everything we need right on the beach .My son-in-law and grandson fish, the little ones play in the sand the older ones play in the surf and I watch from the deck, everybody is happy. The house is clean, comfortable and has everything to make a stay enjoyable. Owners are great they always go out of their way to make sure we are comfortable we hope to be back again next year.
Excellent place to stay, very clean.
We will definitely be back
Our second 'Koss's get away to the beach...
This is our second time at this house. it was just my wife and I, because my Daughter and son-in-law could not make it. But its was very relaxing and peaceful. We used the grill, caught a few fish and slept a little late one day...LOL. We could'nt get the main TV to work,but that was just fine for ME...
Hoping to come back again around the same time next year!
I am so happy to hear the guest had a good time. I appreciate it when guests return. They have many options to choose from and I am pleased they chose Pelican Bay again. The house is very peaceful and relaxing! Regarding the TV......my guest contacted me at 8:00PM on the last night of their reservation to let me know the living room TV was not working. If they had notified me the first day they noticed it I would have gotten someone over to look at it. The next morning after the guest departed the housekeeper was able to get it running. Apparently someone had switch the cables around in the back of the TV. It was a simple fix! Luckily there are 3 more TVs in the house so the guests were able to watch their programs. I appreciate them telling me the problem so it could be fixed before the next guests arrived that afternoon. I have the best guests and count on them to let me know if something is wrong. I want everything to be in tip-top shape for everyone staying at the house.
