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.)

About Greg Peveto

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.

Greg Peveto purchased this house in 2010

Why Greg Peveto chose Crystal Beach

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Nice, breezy location

  • 4 of 5

This home has a nice location but the property is next to a beach access road. It was spring break so there was a fair amount of traffic and noise from the beach at all hours of the day and night. The house itself is comfortable but there are a lot of rules to follow. I had to unload the dishwasher from the previous tenants.

So I loaded and ran the dishwasher after my stay. The damage deposit is $500, which I thought was fully refundable but I didn't get the full amount returned and was given no reason as to why. Maybe because I left later than checkout? I did not see anywhere what time it was but I left @ 11:30 am. Was it because I didn't put dishes in DW away? I did sweep and mop and clean bathrooms but couldn't find the vacuum cleaner... maybe it was because I didn't vacuum??

Also, be prepared to bring your own towels and sheets. Although, the wife of the owner was there when I arrived and she was late leaving because the previous tenants used the linen package. The website I used and conversation with the owner didn't mention that option. Also had confusion about bringing my pets. In the end they were placed in a kennel. Good thing, as the rules state that pets have to sleep on the porch. Overall, I'd recommend this spot, but for me, it was a one time rental.

Owner's Response: I am sorry for any renter who does not feel satisfied. My intent is to offer a nice home at a reasonable price, Yes, there are rules, but they are common sense rules and in place to protect my investment. All of the details of the property, along with any fees for service, rules, etc. are clearly stated in the VRBO add. The VRBO add clearly states that a linen package is available. My home is 2nd row with an unobstructed view and the price is cheaper than most that is beachfront even when paying for the linen service. The add also clearly states that it is pet friendly but must be approved by owner and a fee will apply. The guest initial inquiry did not mention pets. The add also states that it is 2nd row with beach access. Spring break and Holidays are going to be crowded. Noise as a result is not within my control. The vacuum is in the 2nd bedroom closet and can easily be found. The arrival time clearly states 5:00 PM and the guest arrived at 4:00 which was not an issue. The security deposit was returned minus the credit card fees charged by VRBO, and was stated so by me when the security deposit was returned, The guest left the property in good shape and no security deposit was withheld. It is a convenience to guests to use a credit card. VRBO charges transaction fee for each deposit based on the amount. That is an unknown amount to me until the deposit is made and the fees charged. That cost is not built into the rental cost and therefore is withheld from the security deposit so that I receive my full rental amount. If a renter does not want to pay for the convenience of using a credit card, then there are other options. You can discuss that with the owner. That fee is not within my control but set by VRBO.

Great Time for Family Vacation and Family Celebration of Graduation

  • 4 of 5

My stay was actually in June 2012 before listed thru VRBO. Very clean, everything you need, very close to beach. Owner is very particular about certain things, but that keeps the house nice for everyone. He was very easy to deal with. I would go back!
