About Anna Newcomb

We are a very normal couple. We love spending time with our family & friends & we love the beach. We feel very blessed to live so close the coast. It is our happy place!

Anna Newcomb purchased this house in 2013

Why Anna Newcomb chose Crystal Beach

We both grew up going to Crystal Beach and we always dreamed of having a cabin of our own. We love the way the sea breezes take all of our worries away!

What makes this house unique

We love our home! The high ceilings, the shiplap walls, the soothing colors, the views from the deck, just everything. I am obsessed with barn doors and we made them the entrance to the bunk room. A very talented glass artist made custom pendants above the kitchen island and everyone loves them!

Amazing beach house!

  • 5 of 5

Serendipity by the Sea was perfect for my family’s yearly trip to the beach! The house has everything you need and more. The four boys loved the bunk beds and their room which was like a clubhouse. The other three bedrooms were clean, spacious and very comfortable. The kitchen was filled with all of the gadgets and spices you would ever need. The walk to the beach was short and the proximity to the grocery store was very convenient. Anna was so easy to work with and extremely accommodating. I can’t say enough wonderful things about our stay. Thank you so much!

Beautiful home- well equipped- close to beach- safe neighborhood- very happy with our stay

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful and roomy. It is decorated beautifully. Air conditioning and appliances are all new and work perfectly. It has a big porch and a nice breezy area under the house for relaxing. The owner is very helpful and responds quickly to questions. It is only a block to the beach. We did not even need a golf cart. We will stay here again!!!

Wonderful weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific family weekend at Anna's cabin. The cabin itself is beautiful and has everything you could possibly think of! We loved being able to drive on the beach and it was great having a grocery store close by. Anna and Georgia were also both so helpful in helping us find some fresh shrimp to boil. We were sad to see the weekend come to an end. We can't wait to go back!

Located in the heart of Crystal Beach in the Pearl Beach Subdivision, that has a beach access road, which means you can drive on the beach from the cabin in either your car or golf cart. The grocery store is less than a quarter of a mile from the cabin. It really is the perfect location.
