About Stephen Martin

We are a couple from Nacogdoches, Texas. We grew up vacationing in Crystal Beach and have always wanted to have a home there. We own a construction company in Nacogdoches, and Brooke also practices as a Family Nurse Practitioner in Nacogdoches as well. We would love to have you come vacation and enjoy our property as much as we do.

Sink or Swim

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home. Plenty of room.

Close to beach. We will rent this home again in the future.

The only recommendation would be to add some fans to front deck for the few days the breezes aren't blowing well.

Overall everything was first class.

Beautiful Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and really close to a gorgeous beach. There were 10 of us and the house was perfect for our 2 families. The only downside is having to ride the ferry back and forth to the mainland. The ferry can take anywhere from 15 min - 3 hours to get onto for the ride. If you are wanting a place to stay on Crystal Beach this house is perfect.

Perfect size for bringing family together!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful beach home that is as beautiful as it is comfortable! Three siblings, their spouses, and five children were able to be in a home that accommodated both being together and having plenty of space. The house is perfectly beachy without being overdone. It is apparent that someone put a lot of heart and thought into designing the home.
