SHELL STATION- CATCH A FALLING STAR OVER THE GULF OF MEXICO

Crystal Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-9)

Thank you for visiting the Shell Station, built in 2009 after Hurricane Ike. 'SHELL STATION' is 3rd row from shore, offering amazing water views. Sleeps 8 to 9; 3 Q, 2 T Murphy beds, and a full-size flip flop sofa bed. Need additional room for a larger gathering? The SHELL STATION is connected by an elevated walk-way to LUNA BELLA (VRBO 163462), which sleeps up to 10.

Very easy beach access to go romping in the waves, shoreline fishing, shell collecting, or for those beautiful sunrise beach walks. Your fresh Catch of the Day can be provided from your own skills or by the local vendors on a daily basis.

Nicely landscaped property (maintenance-free) complete with a covered deck for shade and a sun deck for soaking in the rays. Watch dolphins frolic just off shore. Relax while listening to the rhythmic sound of the Gulf of Mexico as it laps at the shores of Crystal Beach. At night, view the expansive and clear night skies. The deck completely surrounds the house and is gated for toddlers! On the upper deck, feel free to fly your own favorite colors from the installed flagpole; and bring your favorite hammock to use with the installed eye bolts!

There is a screened-in porch off the Master bedroom (called the Mermaid Lounge). Flat screen TV's with Direct TV provided at no extra cost, and Blu-Ray and full stereo system in living room. Additionally, the Shell Station features a well-equipped kitchen to include cookware, small appliances, bakeware, and even a large shrimp pot and granite countertops. The Master bathroom features a custom over-sized shower.

Downstairs you will enjoy plenty of covered / paved parking, a deluxe private hot water sand shower with two shower heads, a built in charcoal grill, picnic table, a swing, and 30 amp RV hook-up (an extra 30 $/night).

Crystal Beach is but a 15 minute ferry ride to Galveston, TX, which offers every available amenity, to include theaters, shopping, amusement and swim parks, Moody Gardens, the Strand, and other historical adventures.

Our daughter's beach home, Luna Bella (located next to Shell Station),was our inspiration to pursue our very own dream for a relaxing beach get-away.

Most pleasurable for me are the fantastic skies at night accompanied by the breezes and sounds of the Gulf. The skies over the dark Gulf at night provide great illumination with striking views of constellations. Catching glimpses of falling stars occurs regularly.

Shell Station is always a great get-away. The house is well stocked (towels, bath esssentials, washer/dryer). Very comfortable and care-free. Great sound system, great deck, great views of ocean. The sound of the waves is just out your window and extremely relaxing.

We Love the Shell Station!!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed at the Shell Station over spring break 2012. We LOVE the Shell Station and will definitely be back! The place is immaculate, everything is new and it is decorated / furnished to the hilt. There are flat screens in every room with full directTV access, a great stereo system with outdoor speakers, a great screened in porch, a nice big deck, and a great outdoor shower. Also the kitchen is very well stocked, we wanted for nothing. The views of the water are great and the beach is close enough to walk to in 3 minutes.

We really enjoyed our stay and can't wait to be back!

Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Wow, what an amazing weekend! Shell Station was super clean, well decorated and cozy. The kitchen is more equipped than my house! :) It has a wonderful view of the Gulf from the deck and bay window. Everyone on the beach was friendly which made a fun environment. My favorite was the clear skies at night which made for good star gazing. It has a couple of local places to shop and dine. I recommend Eagles for breakfast and pizza at the “Big Store”. “Big” is also is good for souvenirs. What a wonderful weekend and property…can't wait to go back!

Shell station was heaven on earth. The set-up was extremely functional and the kitchen was probably better stocked than my kitchen at home. The view was fabulous, very relaxing. The owners have thought of everything to make their guests comfortable and care free. A wonderful sound system with speakers on the deck, well lit inside and out, flat screen TVs with DVD players, screened in porch out back, extremely beachy and comfortable, including outside shower (woohoo)! I will definitely return.
