Why Angela Maniha chose Crystal Beach
Our original beach house was destroyed by Hurricane Ike when our daughter was just 2 years old. We spent Memorial weekend 2008 there, and as we were leaving she waved to it and said, 'Bye bye water house.' Thirteen days later the house was gone with most of the peninsula. Rebuilding was a labor of love and in spring of 2012 we spent our first weekend in the 'Water House' on the beach we love.
What makes this House unique
We love Crystal Beach, the atmosphere is relaxed, and there is usually not a ton of traffic. We have full access to the beach, campfires, fishing and shell searching. We love to park on the beach to easily transport coolers and such, while still having easy access to our house. I am always able to keep an eye on the rest of the family at the house, while playing on the beach. Our kiddos love to go to the water slides just down the street, they will spend hours running up and sliding down! Our children and family LOVE the Water House!

Great beach house
Great house. Spacious, clean and location was good!
We had a great time. The house was perfect. We are already looking forward to our next trip.
Loved it. House was beautiful.
Well kept, clean, ocean was a few yards away. Loved every minute
Beautiful waterfront house.
It's a beautiful house right on the beach. The owners are also very nice and respond quickly to any needs you might have. I will definitely book it again on future trips to the beach.
Very clean, great access to the beach. Had everything we needed plus more
Great house, recently updated amazing deck with a view
Nice place but needs some updates
The house was nice. It's spacious and has a nice large deck to sit on. However, all of us wound up with slivers from the deck boards. And it seemed to be the only house that didn't have the front of the lawn mowed where we could have let the kids play games and watched them from above. The dishwasher had rust in it, so we ran it through a wash cycle before we even filled it which helped. The dryer also took a long time to dry the beach and regular towels that we had used and washed mid week. It also would have been nice for there to be a little more silverware, we had to be sure to wash it after every time we ate so we had them for the next snack or meal we decided to eat. The view from the deck was gorgeous. It was neat to see oil rigs in the gulf, as none of us had never seen them before other than in the movies. The beach was very crowded and we couldn't really let the kids go play on it for fear they may get run over from all the people driving up and down the beach throughout the course of the day.
Thank you so much for the feedback. The grassy area in front of the house does not belong to us, it is owned by Galveston county. We only sit about an inch off the property line, we used as much space as possible for the deck. We will absolutely look into the dishwasher and dryer. The beach is a public beach and parking on the beach is allowed. It can get busy especially during summer and spring break when you were there. We have middle school kids and we do not let them go down to the beach alone even being so close. Thank you again for staying at The Water House.
