THE BEACHHOUSE IN CRYSTAL BEACH

Crystal Beach House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms/4 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 gulls on the way.) Then it's a 10-minute drive to Edgewater, our home right on the beach, 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 600-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.

Texas Hospitality: LAST MINUTE SPECIAL - EASTER WEEK

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!

GREAT GETAWAY WITH THE KIDS

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!

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.
