Why Angela Maniha chose Gulf Coast

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!

Cute beach front house

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this cute beach front house!

The deck is huge and was wonderful to have for a dogs and small children because it had a gate. Downstairs there is a water hose to rinse all of your beach items off and a full shower, plus a foot since by the stairs. All very convenient. The house is right behind the sand dune so you walking to the beach is super easy. We also drove a few times (after getting a permit to drive on the beach from the Valero down the street) and parked right in front of the house to easily carry down a bunch of toys, ice chests, chairs, kites, etc. that we'd brought with us.

The inside of the house is nice and decorated cute. It's small but there are 4 bedrooms so it can sleep 10-12 super comfortably. One thing to mention, the house is basically bare when it comes to toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap, Landry soap, trash bags, bath towels, etc. For the price of the house I'd expect those things to be stocked, but to be fair they did let us know in advance we'd need to bring all of that. I've stayed in several AirBnB/Home Away properties and it's pretty standard to provide those items. They did have all of the items we needed when we were cooking breakfast each day so the kitchen does seem to be stocked with all of the essentials there.

There are some great restaurants nearby. We especially loved Steve's Landing! So adorable, great food, beautiful sunsets.

Overall we had a fantastic stay and would stay again!

Nice cabin.

  • 4 of 5

Would be helpful if owners gave a more detailed list of what we needed to bring, such as toilet paper and paper towels and garbage bags. we arrived and there was no toilet paper, had to run to the store and grab some. Also need to bring some extra blankets, if you have temp set to sleep, it's very cold in the living room, and there aren't any extra throw blankets that we could find. Cabin needs some maintenance work, we almost got "locked" out twice, cause the door knob was not working properly. Overall nice cabin in a nice location.

Great Christmas Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a wonderful Christmas vacation at the Water House. The description of the home was exactly how it's listed. The deck is amazing and has plenty of chairs for everyone to sit and enjoy the ocean view. The living room also had plenty of seating for everyone. Although the days were so very foggy we made the best of each day and even did a bit of kayaking. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you for sharing your home.
