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 Galveston County
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.

Had a wonderful time with our little family at this house right on the beach. It was clean and organized with detailed instructions. The owner was easy to work with and thorough. It was a bit chilly so an outdoor fire pit or heater would have made it perfect!
Thank you to the guest who wrote the lovely review! I always appreciate the fact my guests take the time to write one. Regarding her comment about the heat lamp...…….I did have heat lamps at both houses but they rusted out in less that one year's time. In addition, because the house gets the full force of high winds the lamps blew over and became a hazard. I also thought they were a good idea but unfortunately impractical.
Great location | Great value | Fantastic vacation
Overall experience: Relaxing! November seems to be the perfect time to visit Crystal Beach; beach was "almost" to ourselves the entire week. My husband and I (+ dog) enjoyed unseasonably warm weather, which enabled us to fish, swim, and enjoy the coast. Communication with owner before and during the visit was wonderful; couldn't ask for better. The house was clean, decorated very well, and centrally located to everything we needed. We highly recommend this house for your next visit to the Gulf; we plan to go again! ~ Tex & Jenni
A quick couple of days at Bolivar
The house, the view and weather were all great! We all felt at home(including the dogs) as soon as we arrived at Pelican Bay. From renting beach houses in the past I've expected certain items to be absent. So, I've learned to be prepared by bringing them from home, but no need here as this house is very well equipped. I've always try to visit the beach in October as it's very quiet. I wasn't disappointed - had the beach to ourselves. The only problem was that two days isn't long enough to totally relax.
Another time...will be back.
Great place to stay.
Great place and incredible views! I wish weather could have been a little warmer.
Dogs had a blast on the beach.
LOVED our stay here! Better than described, communication with the host was excellent. Looking forward to our next visit!
Our stay was wonderful. Loved that we could just walk a few steps to the beach. The only drawback was that there was a lot of junk on the street used to go through to the beach. Other than that, it was a very relaxing stay.
I wish to thank the guest for the review and I am happy she had a good time. She is correct it is a very short walk to the beach.
Regarding her comment about junk on the road. Sometimes when it is windy and the tide is extra high due to hurricane season debris does get deposited on the road. I'm not sure what it was but it is no longer there.
