About Mary Ellen Bestani

I always wanted to have a beach house . That dream came true nine years ago and I would like to share it with you!

Mary Ellen Bestani purchased this house in 2006

Why Mary Ellen Bestani chose Crystal Beach

Crystal Beach and the Bolivar Peninsula are a unique part of the Texas Gulf Coast and my personal favorite! You can walk to the beach or ride your golf cart or even drive your truck and park at the beach!

What makes this house unique

What made my family fall in love with this particular home is the open two story floor plan. The two bedroom one bath on the second floor is ideal to rest and relax and even put the little ones to bed while another group can easily entertain on the first floor in kitchen/living open concept floor plan.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful end of year/beach getaway with my daughter and her friends. The home was immaculate, spacious, and there was plenty of room for twelve people. The kitchen was well stocked, roomy, and the island provided plenty of seating for everyone. The beach was just a short walk away and we felt comfortable letting the kids walk themselves to the beach whenever they wanted to. The owner was very friendly, helpful, and I loved that I could text her at anytime for information about obtaining stickers for driving on the beach, where to eat and get groceries. My daughter forgot her glasses and the owner willingly put them in the mail to us and we got them within two days! We will definitely book this home again next time we head out to Crystal Beach!

We had a 3 Day Famiky Getaway and rented this house. We had a WONDERFUL time! This house was more than we expected! It is a very nice house and has everything you need in it! Mary Ellen was very nice with reserving this house and accommodating us. I highly recommend renting this house. Real close to the beach and it is all very clean and beautiful! We will definitely rent this house again!

Great House for a peaceful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved staying in this rental. The lady I rented it from was very friendly and was able to recommend some great activities and restaurants. I went with my family and my best friends family. There were 10 of us and we didn't feel cramped at all. The kids loved the bunk beds and thought the outdoor shower was pretty cool. Although we spent most of the days on the beach, the open concept allowed all of us to be together to eat, watch a little tv, and play games. The side deck had a little gate, so I felt comfortable letting my kids (2 and 5 years) play out there by themselves.

We rented a gulf cart and were able to ride it to the beach in under 5 minutes. My husband liked that he could park his truck on the beach and pull out his fishing gear!

The grocery store was a five minute drive and had everything we needed. The taco stand there was amazing!

We ate at a restaurant called Coconuts and met some of the locals..very fun people!

I would recommend this to anyone who wanted a fun and relaxing time with friends and family.
