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!

We had the best time!! The house is perfectly laid out with plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen was amazing. The best part of this place is the porch you don't even need the house all the memories were made on this amazing porch. Love the Waterhouse forever a happy place in my heart.

Great weekend

  • 5 of 5

The home was clean and has a great view of the beach from the huge back deck! My family just had a great weekend at this home and the home location to the beach could not have been better. We would pick our spot on the beach in the morning. Go back to the house for lunch and come back to the beach in the afternoon. We could see our chairs and stuff from the house,how cool. The home had plenty of room for my three kids,grandson and wife. I would highly recommend this rental.

Regards

Joe

WE HAD A GREAT TIME

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the beach house. The living area is actually bigger than it appears in the photos. There was plenty of room for all 11 of us. The kitchen was very well equipped. THE PORCH WAS AMAZING! The close proximity to the actual beach was so convenient for going back and forth. Not only would we stay again, but would recommend it to friends and family. Hope to make another trip and will definitely want to stay here again.

Water House

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place with plenty of space, comfortable furniture, very clean and a fantastic beach front view. The lower patio has a good grill, out door shower and foot shower for the steps. The kitchen was well equipped with all the basics for cleanup, cooking and dining. The owner was very responsive and accommodating and helped us with scheduling a last minute booking that made for a perfect family gathering. We have rented along the beach several times and this was the easiest and one of the best houses we have had. McKay...The Woodlands Tx

Amazing Views and Ocean Breezes!

  • 5 of 5

This house was wonderful to stay in. No obstructed views of the ocean, and the deck was amazing! Everything was clean and as described and pictured. Unfortunately we found out that one of the dogs we had at the house chewed up a windowsill after our stay but even that was handled so, so well by the owner (and we are so, so sorry by the way!). Would definitely recommend!
