About the Property

4 bedroom includes bonus room/4th bedroom, 3 Bath Beach views from all rooms

We also have another home 2 blocks away on the beach called Do-Over-Dunes. Please check our home and it's reviews at VRBO #459263 to see the excellent reviews.

Beach front at it's best! 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a laundry room in the main house. 3 full bedrooms; one with a king bed and master bath, another with a queen bed, and the third bedroom with 4 bunk beds. We also have a detached bonus room with full bath which can serve as a 4th bedroom or a place to get away and relax. The bonus room has a queen sleeper sofa that would work well for children but I doubt an adult would be comfortable. The house sleeps 8 and has beds for 8. Large comfortable living areas, all with excellent views of the water. Large kitchen with granite countertops and stainless appliances. Did I mention the extra large wrap-around deck where you can watch the kids playing in the surf? Enjoy your view and see if you can catch a glimpse of the dolphins just outside your front door!

The home also has a large 70x100 fully fenced backyard, with access from the rear stair case. Guests who bring their dogs just have to open the back door and let their pets out to do their business without having to walk them. Doesn't get any easier than this when traveling with your dogs! The large yard is fully grassed in and fully fenced and gated for your children and guests to play safely. There is also a fire pit, bench and park style grill in the fenced in back yard for your enjoyment.

There is also a 2 person ocean kayak , it is not a toy for children to use without adult supervision. Use at your own risk. There are also 2 life jackets, make sure you use them if you use the kayak Please put them back as you found them, the kayak is located on the back deck and the paddles and live vests are in the closet in the bonus room. Do not count on any equipment being there for your use since things do get lost and/or broken. It is all included in your rental.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2104

About the owner: Hi, Thanks for visiting out home. Pete and Betsy Grosso, the owners, welcome you. We lost our original home to Hurricane Ike a few years ago and rebuilt in 2013. It is listed on VRBO as Do-Over-Dunes, VRBO #459263. We decided to build another home using our retirement funds and here it is..... Seas the Day!

Why the Owner Chose Crystal Beach, Bolivar Peninsula, TX, USA:
On our first trip to the Boliver Peninsula we fell in love with the beach and decided to invest our retirement money in what we like to call Paradise. We would like nothing more than to share it with you.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The deck is fantastic, 20 feet in the front and wraps around the entire home. It is half covered and half open so there is a spot for everyone. Shade or sun, it's up to you. The house is brand new with all the creature comforts of home. All leather living furniture and even a recliner to take a nap in while watching and listening to the surf, just a few feet from the home. Every room has a view with large oversized windows, so no matter where you are in the home you can see and hear the surf. Central air-conditioning keeps you cool when indoors. You just have to visit to appreciate this home. We built the home higher than most which provides excellent views up and down the beach.
