About Mary Wickland

I live in Beaumont TX but spent many summers at Crystal Beach. My fondest memories are from my childhood days at the beach. One day I hope to retire to the beach house. That is my ultimate dream!

Mary Wickland purchased this house in 2013

Why Mary Wickland chose Crystal Beach

My family has had a beach home on the peninsula for over 50 years. It is a great place to vacation whether you stay on the peninsula or take the short ferry ride to Galveston. Our family home was destroyed by IKE but the hope of rebuilding never left us. We are proud of our home and would love to share it so others can make family memories like I have. Once you visit, you will be hooked.

What makes this house unique

The property has wonderful views of the water and easy access to the beach. We are far enough from what locals call the "zoo" so at night it is peaceful. Rentals in our area are mostly done by family groups.

Amazing Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had my wife's 30th birthday party here. There was plenty of room for friends and family. The house is awesome and the island in the kitchen had everyone jealous. The porches had great views and tons of space. There was also plenty of yard for yard games and hanging out under the house was nice, there is a large picnic table and a bar. It was a very short walk to the beach. I will definitely be staying at this house again! If you are looking for a beach house, look no further! Thank you so much Mary!

My family rented this beach cabin for my mother's surprise 60th birthday, and we loved it! It was absolutely beautiful and much closer to the beach than we originally thought (which was a nice surprise). The owner was very quick to answer all questions we had. Everyone said multiple times that they would love to stay there again. We are looking forward to making it an annual trip!

Fabulous place. We will definitely come back!

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous property, it was everything we expected and more. Short short walk to the beach. Wonderful amenities in the house! Very clean. Hot showers outside. If you have a large group this is a great place. My husband and I took 9 grandkids and 4 parents (15 total ) and it was perfect!
