About the property

GREAT January & February Weekday Discount!!!.....see rates. Are you looking for a vacation rental that provides peace and quiet? Want to get away from all the hustle and bustle of city life? Then this is the house for you! In 2008 Hurricane Ike devastated the Caplen Shore subdivision. Pelican Bluff is the first home to return. You will have complete privacy with no neighbors. Built in Sept. 2016, this beach house has a spectacular gulf view from the living room, master bedroom and guest bedroom! Sleeping quarters include master bedroom with king size bed, guest room with queen bed and a bunk room with 1 full and 1 twin bed. Beds for 7 people plus a queen sofa bed and twin roll away provides sleeping for up to 10 guests. All bedrooms include a TV and built in DVD player. The house is also a split floor plan with bedrooms on each side of the house. The living room sports a big screen TV, WIFI & Pandora.. But the best part is the beachfront view! From the deck you can see 180 degrees with no obstructions. Watch the sun rise or sun set, see the ships travel on the Gulf and dolphins frolic in the water. A quick walk puts you on a secluded area of the beach with very little traffic. The grill, a built in picnic tables and outdoor shower downstairs make entertaining easy and enjoyable in any kind of weather. Built Sept 2, 2016. Also check out my first beachfront property Pelican Bay. It is located approx 1/4 mile from Pelican Bluff and can be viewed at property #562649

About Margene Walz

Hi, Welcome to my home – My name is Margene Walz. I am the owner and am thrilled to show you around. Many years ago I moved to California from Nebraska but have always missed the mid-western values and hospitality. Through the advice of my brother Mike Walz of Crystal Beach's Walz Family Builders I seized the opportunity to sell my California condominium and built on Bolivar. I appreciate the area and the hospitality. It is like coming back to my roots. I am very pleased to be able to share my home with you. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. (By the way...the picture is of my great nephew, Alex. He photographs cuter than I do.)

Margene Walz purchased this house in 2016

Why Margene Walz chose Crystal Beach

Since my brother owns a home and a business in Crystal Beach I have visited many times. Each time I fell more and more in love with the area. I decided to invest my retirement money here and started with Pelican Bay. It has been such a pleasant experience with wonderful, wonderful guests! So when an opportunity arose I jumped at the chance to purchase a second home. I can't wait to share this peaceful stress-free beach with you.

What makes this house unique

The most spectacular thing about Pelican Bluff is the unobstructed beach front view. The front deck is 16' deep - 8' is covered and 8' is uncovered. Guests are able to enjoy the shade, read, sip a glass of wine or beer or tan in the sunshine. Since there are no neighbors guests will have a peaceful and quiet stay. The family area under the house includes a shower, a two built-in picnic tables and charcoal grill. It is a wonderful area that will accommodate many family members and guests. Plus it is brand new and offers you all the comforts of home with the additional bonus of hearing and watching the surf.

Lovely house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Margene's beach house. While the weather wasn't the greatest, it is still fun to watch storms and fog come in and we were never stopped from our daily beach walks. We cooked, walked and read - very relaxing. The house is perfect for these activities. A plus - the house was immaculate! We highly recommend you vacation here.

Great almost private beach access beach house

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying. We really enjoy coming here because the beach access is so close and usually the beach is empty in this area. The house is excellent and its a great time here.

My husband and grown kids and our family dogs had a wonderful weekend at your home. It is quiet, super clean and very well stocked. The view is beautiful. The bed in the master bedroom was incredibly comfortable. When I lay down for an afternoon nap I watched the waves as I fell asleep. Amazingly peaceful. The beach is clean and great for long walks. I am back at work and dreaming of our time there. Thank you for opening up your home and being so welcoming to us and our dogs.

Owner's Response: What a great way to start the new year. A good review!! I appreciate all the comments. You will find many of the reviews include comments about the condition of the house and how clean it is. I have the best housekeepers on the peninsula and truly appreciate them! In addition the location of the house makes it quiet and peaceful. If you want to get away from it all Pelican Bluff is the place to be.
