Crystal Beach House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms/3 1/2 Baths Sleeps 10

Crystal Beach is a 15-minute ferry ride from Galveston, and most of the time, a pod of dolphins will escort you both ways. (Bring some bread or popcorn to toss to the sea gulls on the way.) Then it's a 10-minute drive to The Edgewater Beach House, that proudly sits right on the beach/corner lot with unobstructed viiews. It is an enchanted place as some of our guest like to call it , with panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico. If this is your first visit, you'll be greeted by your host. And if you're like most guests, you'll have three experiences in succession. The first is the 'Wow!' reaction as you step through the front door. The second is the 'Ah' reaction as you lower your travel-weary body into a comfortable chair on our 800-square-foot deck. And the third is the 'Oh, yes!' reaction as you sip a complimentary libation and watch the waves roll in, while the kids play with a thoughtful selection of stuffed animals and toys. You can unpack later while you enjoy this custom built home that was built to thrill, that you will want to come back to each year and share with other friends and family for future stays.

We recently added a wonderful addition to this home, which is a custom built bar/ entertaning area for BBQ's and gatherings with thatched roof down stairs that has ample seating for leisure time. This same area boast an outdoor fish cleaning area with Trek outdoor table and double Kohler sink, along with outdoor shower and guest have their own storage area for beach equipment.

Tons of Fun!: From May 1 through September 15, Edgewater rents by the week. That's seven days and six nights. But that may not be enough, there's so much to do. After a leisurely breakfast on the deck, you can take the ferry to Galveston. There you'll find the three pyramids of Moody Gardens: rain forest, aquarium, and 'discovery.' Plus an IMAX theater. Also the Lone Star Flight Museum, great food and shopping in The Strand historic district, ship tours (submarine, destroyer escort, and square rigger), nine historic houses, and 'The Great Storm' multimedia presentation of the 1900 hurricane the killed some 10,000 people. You'll love our beach, of course, but don't miss one of the two Schlitterbahn water parks with a wave pool, mud-rider raft rides, and an uphill water coaster! The park even has an enclosed facility that's open year round.

Seafood Fancier's Paradise. : As dawn signals the start of a new day, you'll see the shrimp boats headed out to sea. Then in late morning, you'll hear a little bell signaling the arrival of 'the fish lady' with her truck full of the ocean's bounty. Just pop downstairs and pick out your dinner, which you'll grill in the spacious area under the house. Of course you can catch a mess of crabs yourself, throw a line in from a bridge (or from the shore), or arrange to go deep-sea fishing. With great seafood, a great beach, and so many things to do, Crystal Beach offers the quiet of a little fishing town and the attractions of a big city. No wonder so many guests book for the following year during their current stay. Come join us and see for yourself!

About Rebecca Carroll

I am a hands on owner who loves my brand new home that was completed this year, and welcomed our first guest on 06/06/2014. We have had back to back weekly rentals since and still going strong and already taking reservations for summer 2015 in which some of the guest from this year are booking same dates for next year.

Why Rebecca Carroll chose Crystal Beach

Custom Build Beach House with a Architectual Design Team out of Houston. It is a very streamlined, open concept, high ceilings, everyroom has a view. Eight sets of Numa French doors so everyroom has natural light, with a very large deck where your not on top of one another and a large custom build bar downstairs that can sit 10 guest comfortably where you can have BBQ's

along with a fish cleaning station, and double sink bathroom, sink, open shower and room for six cars to park underneath the house.

What makes this house unique

Stunning house to share with your friends/family and be very proud and happy that you did. It is also very close proximinty to beach, sand and water that can't be beat.

We have a very large deck that spans the whole lenght of house, that accomidates people who want covered for protection from the sun, and the other half is all open that want the sun. This deck is a total of 800 sq. ft!

We provide tables/chairs/loungers, and don't forget the huge bar downstairs!!

Making Wonderful Memories

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful home and it has awesome owners! My husband and I live up north. We were trying to think of a way to get my husband and I, our grown children and a couple of our little grandchildren together and this was just the place! It really exceeded our expectations. The house is beautiful! The gourmet kitchen was absolutely just what we needed. My daughters, daughter-in-law and I all had plenty of room to cook together. We rarely get to see our children and this was just perfect. The huge deck was awesome and we sat out there every night with the sound of the waves and the ocean breeze. I was in heaven. Right on the beach. Who could ask for more? The beds were comfy and we all had our own space. We would come back over and over again. The only down side was our week went by way to fast! Thank you so much to the Owner's!

Owner's Response: Debbie, thank you so much for choosing our beach house for your family vacay this year. We are thrilled that it was the perfect house to accomidate everyone, as it was definitely built for entertaining both inside and out, We are glad that we were able to get the downstairs bar built in time so you were able to enjoy it and have seating for everyone in your party while having BBQ's and watching the water lap up on the beach and hear the waves. Hopefully we will see you again soon. Best Wishes Rebecca

Perfect in every way!!!

This house was amazing! From right on the beach--I mean right on it! to all the finishes that this home boasts. I would not hesitate for one moment to do it all over again. The listing does not do this house justice. Our hosts (the owners) are wonderful people and very pleasant to work with. The location of this was perfect. On any given day there was only a handful of people on the beach by the house, the weekend had more, but not too many to make it "busy". This area seems to be fairly secluded from the rest of the crowds, and the beach was beautiful. Our group did travel to Galveston for a day on the trip, and we did the Pleasure Pier, which was fun for the whole family. Honestly I just enjoyed sitting on the large deck listening to the waves the majority of our trip. There are some restaurants close by along with a fairly nice grocery store right down the street that basically has anything you need. I would suggest this house over and over again to any and all. Thanks Rebecca!!!!

Owner's Response: Chris Thanks for your lovely comments and taking the time to write to us so other potential guest can hear the experiences that you shared during your stay. We enjoy first time guest because when they open the front door, and look straight out to the beach, and can hear the waves, they know they have arrived to a place that immediately lets them get on Island time. Everyone loves the large deck that spans right out to the beach and water, along with the brand new large downstairs bar that is new to The Edgewater this year. It has been a hit with parents and kids so everyone is together while either BBQ's, socializing, kids in portable pools, listening to the waves lap up, or for ladies getaways, or couples in the fall. It is also a great house to entertain in as you are able to see everyone inside and out at all times. We hope to see you again next year, and thanks for leaving the house so neat and tidy for us as we appreciated it. You guys were a neat group to share our new home with this year, and glad that we were able to get you in for the dates that you wanted as the house booked up very quickly this year. Best Regards Rebecca Carroll

Beautiful, comfortable home right on the water

This rental is highly recommended! Had a wonderful week at the beach! The home is gorgeous. Lots of room inside and out (amazing, huge deck to hang out on). Gourmet kitchen was fully equipped. You can't get any closer to the beach and you have no immediate neighbors. Owners are very accomodating. Everything about the trip was easy, comfortable and relaxing - the perfect vacation!

Owner's Response: Well first off to any potential guest reading this review, wanted to let you know that this guest was our very first inquiry when we went live on the website! I was kind of nervous but excited at the same time, and was asking myself over and over, is it really ready, and will they love it like we do, and is it everything that they hoped it would be after two years of building that was carefully planned out for every need/want that a guest would desire during their stay. The Edgewater bookd up very quickly for the entire summer, and I then knew we had a special product that guest wanted. Greg (who was our first guest with his best friend and kids) could probably sense that I was a little nervous at first turning my pride and joy over for its first interduction as a beach rental but they made it very easy for the owner (ha) and were so nice and appreciative and left it exactly as they found it..and in one piece! (haha) as sometimes you never know. So thank you so much Greg for being our first guest.

Staying at the Enchanted Lady of Crystal Beach!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a Fabulous Family vacation at this Brand New Home that is beautiful and tastefully decorated in a Cape cod Beach theme. There is a Gourmet kitchen for those chefs that like to cook on Vacation like we did. There is also Grand Beautiful views of the Ocean and the Beach from all the Rooms in the house. The Whole Family like that we could spot any of our Family members on the Beach from the Main Deck on the House. We also had a Great time of bonding on those late nights watching the Stars at night sipping on your favorite beverage telling stories of the crazy family members who make us laugh. I will be back to stay here again soon. You will not go wrong with this house..A++++

Owner's Response: Hi Barry hope you are having a great summer and staying cool inside! Wanted to take this time to thank you again for choosing us for your family vacation this year. When I saw you unloading your humongous auto and all the homemade food that you had prepared ahead of time, all I could think about was I hope he is not a professional Chef and wants a huge kitchen to match his profession, but to my surprise you just loved to cook besides being very generous in going thru my new home since you are in the Home Building arena and had that special eye for detail and appreciated our home and what we had to offer, along with some great suggestions, and helping me even repair a few things! What a great guest!! haha you were a hoot and hope you come back soon. Hello to your family and your wonderful spirited mother.

This house is right on the beach. Walk out the door and you're there. The owners provided some play toys for the kiddos and internet access for the teenagers. The beds were comfortable. We had a great view of an evening. We sat on the porch and relaxed. We even had several evenings where we could watch storms out over the sea. It is close to Galveston...just a ferry away. Far enough away to enjoy the more quiet atmosphere and cleaner beaches. We enjoyed trying the local eateries and the fresh seafood!

Guestbook Comment

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed over spring break in 2005. The beach on the weekend was of course crowded but everyone was having fun. The owners of this property are great people to work with. Their house is beautiful and very comfortable to stay in. We had a most enjoyable week, even with the rain.

Car: necessary

Crystal Beach has been called Galveston's best-kept secret. But vacationers have begun to discover us. Many of our guests stay here both before and after taking a cruise. Four cruise lines call Galveston home: Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Princess, and Celebrity. (Check the Galveston Cruises Web site for expert advice and great rates.) And, during March and April, both the birds and the birders who take joy in spotting them arrive. Our federally protected wetlands and sanctuaries offer ideal resting places for migrating feathered friends. As a very family-oriented place, we do not open our second home to spring breakers or other large, potentially rambunctious, groups. In fact, the ideal match is three couples, with or without kids, who want a truly memorable beach vacation. Edgewater offers the best of both worlds: A quiet, fully equipped waterfront beach house, and the glories of Galveston, just half an hour away.
