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.

Nice stay

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I stayed for three nights at Margene's property in mid-October. The house was clean and stocked with small necessities like paper towels, detergents, etc. Communication with Margene was flawless as well. There's a store (The Big Store) five miles to the west with anything you might need. Great stay overall in very secluded and beautiful location.

Amazing weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing weekend at Pelican Bay. The house is very good: nice furniture, well equiped, clean. Its location is ideal: right next to the beach. It was great to view the sea and hear the waves all the time. 1 min walking distance to the beach and quiet neighborhood. We would love to go back!

Fantastic Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. A shark was caught at the beach, along with other fish. Watched the shrimp boats go by & the dolphins. Collected lots of shells. The house was perfect again! We love Crystal Beach and will be back next year. Thanks for everything!

Wonderful Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Margene is so easy to work with and very accommodating!! The house has everything you need and is in a quiet peaceful area. My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here and it was perfect. We spent so much time on the deck because the views are AMAZING!! We saw a dolphin on the first day! Check in and out are a breeze. It was such a great trip. I can't wait to go back!
