Overview

About the property

Beach-front 5 bedroom, 3 bath home just a few yards from the beach.

Enjoy your vacation at our newly constructed 5/3 home that sleeps 24 comfortably (not including sleeper sofa,). The two beachside bedrooms have king beds. All the rest have built-in queen bunks. We designed the layout to comfortably fit our large family and accommodate a large group. We've included all the amenities that you would expect at a truly great beach home plus a few that you'd never expect.

We've provided such things as locking gates on the sun deck (to protect the small kiddos), a "pack-n-play" for babies, plenty of hammocks, swings, and deck furniture, loads of outdoor and indoor games, satellite TV and movies (in all the rooms), a built-in double oven and extra large stove top, auxiliary ice maker, propane grill and spacious bar area downstairs, outdoor showers, chairs and tables for small wedding parties, and many more items too numerous to mention. We even have our own private dune walk-over for direct access to the beach!

You'll truly be impressed by the family friendly features we provide!

About Midas Touch Properties

We've raised our family in southeast Texas and most of our six children and twelve grandchildren (and counting) live close by.

Midas Touch Properties purchased this house in 2015

Why Midas Touch Properties chose Crystal Beach

Growing up in southeast Texas, the beach is the most cherished vacation spot for our family. We designed and built this home to accommodate the needs of our large family and it serves as our vacation home when not in rental service. It's loaded with features that make a large family gathering fun and safe.

You'll find spices in cabinets, linens on the beds, and maybe some Blue Bell Ice Cream in the freezer. Just bring a bathing suit and some extra clothes. Everything else you need is here.

What makes this house unique

Great Layout and plenty amenities

  • 5 of 5

The house was very similar to the pictures, no surprises when we got there. Everything that you could need, the cabin had, there were ample towels, dishes, cookware, even condiments and spices. There is a "toy closet" with beach games as well as beach toys and also a grill. The house was very spacious and well laid out. In addition to the inside, the outside had ample shade upstairs and downstairs. Upstairs there were very comfortable bar height chairs to see the surf and horizon over the railing with ease, and downstairs there were a couple of swings and a few hammocks that was a great place to pass the hottest part of the days. Will definitely try to use this cabin again in the future.

This place is amazing!!! BOOK NOW!

  • 5 of 5

If we have a chance to go back this will be my first and only choice. Perfect for big families to enjoy themselves on this beautiful property and to spend some time on the beach as well. This by far is one of the best places I've ever booked. The owner is very helpful and very accommodating to your needs and is available if there's any last minute questions or emergencies which was very helpful. He even gave us a run down of the traffic and nearby places we could eat and etc. This place is above and beyond my expectations if your looking for a wonderful time with your family this is the place to pick!

The Bolivar Peninsula is a narrow strip of land running parallel to the upper southeast Texas coast, bounded on one side by Galveston Bay and the other by the Gulf of Mexico. Rich in history, the Peninsula was once the playground of pirates and privateers and it still provides plenty of adventure today!

With 27 miles of sandy beaches, world-class birding and wildlife areas, fantastic fishing, shopping, and some of the best seafood dining to be found, there’s plenty of fun to be found along our shores.

Crystal Beach community stretches seven miles along Texas State Highway 87 in the middle of Bolivar Peninsula and is the perfect place to get away. Activities include walking, running, sunning, sailing, surfing, shelling, birding, crabbing, and just plain relaxing. With its small-town, quaint charm, the beach is relaxing and far away from the stress of city life and yet, just a short ferry ride to all that the Galveston/Houston Metroplex has to offer.

Crystal beach is one of the few places left that you can actually camp or drive on the beach (cars, golf carts, ATV’s, etc). You can beach comb for shells, boogie-board or surf, build a sand castle, fish, roast marshmallows, go kayaking, and watch a spectacular sunrise right on the beach.

Elsewhere in Bolivar, you can visit historic Fort Travis Seashore Park, dine on fresh seafood, play golf, shop, explore the many bird sanctuaries, rent a golf cart and cruise the beach, fish at Rollover Pass, go crabbing, or ride the Ferry. The entire length of the Bolivar Peninsula is part of the Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail, which attracts enthusiasts from around the world.

Fun day trips include Moody Gardens, Schlitterbahn Waterpark, Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge, San Jacinto Monument, Space Center Houston, Kemah Boardwalk, Galveston Pleasure Pier, Seawolf Park, and walking The Strand shopping area in Galveston.

Start your adventure today by reserving one of the finest beach-front properties on the Peninsula. You’ll create family memories that will last a lifetime.
