Crystal Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

New in 2010! Located in the first row right on the sandy beach- FANTASTIC views in both directions-nothing but beach and water with beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Great location in Crystal Beach. Family oriented: the large living room/dining room/kitchen area is a favorite place for family and friends to gather. There's plenty of room for everyone with a large dining table plus seating at the breakfast bar. The supersized deck on the main level has a gas grill, picnic table and a double stairway that deposits you right on the sandy beach! Enjoy sun or shade on this deck while sipping an early morning cup of joe or an afternoon cocktail. There is also a main floor master suite with walk in closet and private bath. The second bedroom is on the upper level and has two queen sized beds and a full bath across the hallway. The 'bunk room' has 3 bunk beds with double beds on the bottoms, single beds on top. The third bath and laundry room are right outside this bedroom door. The upper level family room has a wet bar and french doors to the upper level deck: a great place to watch the dolphins play in the surf!

Visit us once and you'll make it a yearly destination. A life time of fond memories are created here. Enjoy swimming, surfing, beachcombing and fishing right out side the front door. Join in or watch the fun from the multiple decks overlooking miles of uninterrupted beach and water.

And for our bird watchers and nature lovers, join us in March and April to watch a variety of migratory birds in the world class Audubon Area specifically set aside for our feathered friends. Sorry, no spring breakers! This is not a party house and is reserved for our more discerning guests who will appreciate and respect it.

Fabulous Family Beach Vaycay!

My husband and I, our children and grandchildren, all loved our time at Sea Haven. The house floor plan was perfect for us. Everyone had their own space when needed, and the common areas were great for meal times and just being together. The kitchen is very well-equipped for even the best Cook! Our favorite times were spent on that huge front porch, rocking in those great rockers, sipping our coffee, and watching our little grandchildren play on the deck, as we enjoyed the sounds of the sea. These are the times that make life so beautiful!! We cannot wait to come back for our next holiday!
Owner's Response: Thanks, we're glad you had a good time and we have your new dates reserved! Looking forward to having you back.

Amazing location, but a few problems.

Generally speaking, a good place. Right on the beach--couldn't ask for a better location! My only complaints: the downstairs A/C didn't work very well and it was uncomfortable to sleep at night if you had to sleep in the bunk bed room. (The upstairs A/C worked great!) The dryer did not work. We had to run the dryer over and over to dry anything-and even then, still damp. Also, there were two unfortunate instances of cockroaches crawling on people while they were on the couches (once upstairs, once downstairs). But to be fair, these were the only roach sightings. These things kept us from giving it a higher rating though. But truly, the accommodations were generally nice. The multi-level decks were great. And the location was superb! The kitchen was a good size and well stocked. The pictures seem a bit old, but not too far from reality. The eastward view is no longer as pictured, there's a house there now.
Owner's Response: Oh my! Sometimes if the door is left open cockroaches will fly in! If you only saw two that's probably what happened. We do have an exterminator come in regularly so hopefully it was a one time instance.

The dryer is fixed...it gets a lot of use this time of the year and the vent was chock full of sand and lint....working great now.

Same thing with the central air.....the guys are there today fixing it; they are cleaning the condenser and said that that will fix the problem.

Sorry your stay wasn't perfect but I think we've resolved the issues!

Thanks for letting me know.

The pictures posted do not do this home justice. It is the quintessential dream home on the beach. Open floor plan, plenty of sleeping quarters, updated appliances (Thank you for providing the Keurig machine), and to top it off......steps from the beach. Both the Owner (Sharon) and the Property Manager (Sharon) were wonderful. We had a small situation with the internet and both women went out of their way to get the situation resolved. There was only one major problem.....we had to leave. There is no doubt in my mind that we will be returning. Thank you Sharon for sharing this piece of heaven. And Thank you Sharon for doing everything you do. Can't wait to return!

My New Vacation Place !!!

Our family rented Sea Haven for a weekend just to get away. We immediately felt at home and a few days felt like a weeks long vacation. The photos in the ad do NOT do this property justice. From the moment we opened the door, throughout our entire walk thru the home, we were impressed. Everything was big and spacious, warm and welcoming and equiped with everything you could ever need for a vacation. The beds were so very comfortable ..even the sofa-sleeper!! And the house is so quiet until you open the double doors to hear only the sound of the ocean.
The upstairs area was my favorite. Almost like a mini apartment. The bedroom held 2 full size of queen size beds, lots of space, a huge closet and nightstands. It also had a window seat which made it nice. There is a bathroom across the hall and a large seating or living area complete with wet bar, beautiful sofa sleeper and chairs and a stunning balcony with table and chairs.
The house was just so very nice.....but the view....oh the view. Nothing between you and the ocean but sand....they had just laid down grass which added to the beautiful of the view. The waves washed up the most amazing shells I have ever seen and we were able to see dolphins playing in the surf on our last morning.
Needless to say....we will be back. We hope we can save some money and come back again before the end of the year. This will most definately be a year event for us at Sea Haven. Thank you for offering such a wonderful place to our family.

Owner's Response: We love to Dolphin watch-especially from the upper deck-every morning and then again around 4:00PM. Sometimes they come really close to the shore! Yes, please come again soon!
