About the Property

Great family location in Crystal Beach. 15 min drive & ferry ride to Galveston.

HOT DEAL: April special for 2017. Rates reduced below March and May rates. Please call for details and discount information.
Seaclusion was Built new after Hurricane Ike and offers a FANTASTIC Beachfront VIEW. 3 Bedrooms – 2 ½ baths – Fully furnished and has all the amenities of home except for the worry of a phone ringing. Seaclusion offers a full 7 nights for a weekly booking compared to most beach homes on Bolivar Peninsula where you will find a week long booking will only be for 6 nights. You will pay less for this beachfront home and get an extra night as a bonus, due to the owner managing the property himself. And since this is the owners only Beach home it is clean and well maintained. You will love the coastal décor of the home. Enjoy a cold drink in the swing or sit at the table on the deck listening to the ocean waves or deck mounted stereo speakers, Take a short stroll to the beach for some fun in the sun. The large deck is an open invitation to morning coffee sunrises.
Rates are family based on occupancy of 10. Rates may vary based on the type of group. The house can sleep 12 or more, but occupancy of more than 10 must be approved by owner along with a fee.

The Following is Provided:
*Cleaning supplies *Trash bags for cans in house and downstairs bath
*Pillows – do not remove furnished pillows
*Bed Spreads and a few blankets are furnished.

Items you need to bring: Paper goods, first aid items, insect repellant, charcoal & lighter, bathroom supplies, beach towels, bath towels and washrags, kitchen towels, clothes washing detergent and bed linens (unless paying convenience package, which provides towels and linens).

*LEAVE CABIN CLEAN FOR NEXT GUESTS. You are paying for inspection and sanitizing fee, not for maid service, so the home must be left clean upon departure. Guests are responsible to leave the house in the condition you find it in. Cleaning supplies are provided. Floors, bathrooms, countertops, furniture, etc.. should be cleaned as necessary to leave home in as good of a shape as possible. Most rentals charge quite a bit more for maid service and require departure by 12:00 noon. I only charge what is necessary to employ the services of someone to do inspection and sanitizing and some minor cleaning in order to assure that incoming guests arrive at a clean and sanitized home. By allowing guests to check out at 2:00 instead of 12:00 noon I am providing additional time for guests to clean up after themselves and leave the home as they found it. Based on the report from the inspection, if the home has to have any major cleaning, including having to vacuum or sweep floors due to guests not leaving home as instructed, the extra charge for that service will be deducted from the security deposit.
If paying for the convenience package Linens, bath towels, and washrags will be provided. Towels, etc will be placed in linen cabinets in bathrooms. Sheets and pillowcases will be left on beds based on the usage booked. Prior to departure, please strip beds of sheets and pillowcases and place all used items including bath towels, etc, on top of washer/dryer. Unused items should be left where they were. This will allow the service for washing and drying to know what needs to be cleaned.

****Rates vary in off season-Oct to April and weekday stays are discounted at certain times of the year.
*Spring break will be charged the same as Summer rates
*Holidays require a minimum 3 night stay. Higher rates will apply during Holidays over the stated rate for that season. The owner will contact you, explain the rate charge and if agreed the owner will adjust the rate upon approval. (1.25%-1.5% is the norm increase)
*Discounts are available to Military or Ex Military (not applicable to Holidays or Special Event pricing.)

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I grew up and live in Orange Texas about 85 miles from Crystal Beach. My parents owned property from 1977, in Crystal Beach. I bought my first beach home in 1988 and have been at the current location since 1994. I rebuilt the current home after hurricane Ike and it was completed in Jan. of 2010. I have been renting my properties on Crystal Beach since 1988.

Why the Owner Chose Crystal Beach, Bolivar Peninsula, TX, USA:
Great location in a family oriented area. An unobstructed view of the beach and Gulf makes this rental special. No need to drive to the beach or buy a parking sticker. Golf cart rental is available in Crystal Beach, but you dont have to rent one unless you just want to due to the proximity to the beach of this home.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You get a full 7 nights for a weekly rental. Most all rentals in Crystal beach only offer 6 nights at a 7 night rate. A 7 night rate for this beach front home is comparable to homes that are 4th or 5th row but only offer 6 nights for a weekly stay. No taxes are charged to the renter. Linens, towels, etc... are available for an additional fee, which will be based on length of stay.. Pets may be allowed, based on size and type of breed. A fee will apply based on the length of stay. During the month of July and August, Weekday openings (vacancies) which begin on Sunday night for either 3 or 4 nights, will qualify for a discount. Trying to fill the schedule for the weekday time which is open. Please call to discuss the discounted rate. Notice: Discounted rate will not apply to groups of more than 8 persons.
