3/2 BEACH HOME ON 2ND ROW IN FAMILY FRIENDLY AREA.

Crystal Beach House Rental Photos and Description

3/2 beach home on 2nd row. WEEKLY RENTALS ONLY DURING SUMMER MONTHS

Our family has been vacationing in Crystal Beach since the 1960's. We lost our beach house to Hurricane Ike, but we were fortunate enough to have insurance and our new house is ready for you to enjoy. Ours is an open floor plan with 1335 square feet, three bedrooms, a sleeper sofa, and Wifi.

Kids will love playing in the ocean, making sandcastles, and collecting shells. Adults will love the expansive view of the Gulf of Mexico and the easy access to the beach.

The Master Suite is decorated in soothing colors with a palm tree theme. It has a king size bed, an oversized tub, and a separate entrance to the porch for sneaking out with that first cup of coffee to watch the sun come up over the ocean. The second bedroom has a plush queen bed, a great view of the beach, and is decorated in cool tropical shades. The 3rd bedroom has two antique twin beds and is decorated in a cat theme.

The fully stocked kitchen is open to the dining room, which is furnished with large, comfortable furniture and decorated in a tropical theme, perfect for lingering over family mealtime.

Enjoy a great night's sleep in the 3 private bedrooms, all of which have a reading light, extra pillows, a clock, and a fan.

We have crabbing gear and plenty of beach chairs and toys available for your use.

We make every effort to have the basics for you upon arrival: toilet paper, coffee filters, basic spices, etc. Nothing worse than driving for hours and having to go to the store before heading to the beach! Linens are not provided so bring sheets, bath towels and beach towels.

For larger groups, our cousin owns Cabana Che which is a block away and sleeps 8 (listing #338543)

We love Crystal Beach for too many reasons to name! Galveston is just a fun ferry ride away and has everything you might want for your entertainment on a vacation, but if you just want to get away from it all, you don't need to leave the Bolivar Peninsula. The Big Store has everything you might need; there are local fisherman to buy fresh seafood from, and great restaurants too!

From early morning walks at sunrise until cocktail hour on the shady front porch, we relax and enjoy the constant ocean breezes, the smell of the salt air, and the sound of the waves crashing on the shore. Thanksgiving is a particularly special time for us to convene in Crystal Beach, but we love it at all times of year and think you will too.

Our house is in the 'Noisy Waves' sub-division, which is a family-friendly area between Emerald II and Holiday Beach, about 1 mile west of the Big Store and 11 miles east of the ferry landing.

wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5
my family and i stayed at stone's throw for a long weekend, and would have stayed longer if the next week wasn't already booked. while it's simply designed (modular home), the house exceeded our expectations and the photos. it is clean, bright, airy and spacious. the owner obviously loves her property - there are small touches everywhere that make you feel you're staying somewhere special. she was also very pleasant to work with and very helpful.
the community and the beach are sleepy and have a small-town feel, from the grocery store that is also a hardware store that is also a souvenir shop to the guy that sells shrimp and fish from his house on the channel.
we were well-rested and sun-soaked when we packed our bags to leave. we'll be back next year!
thanks again for everything, lisa.

Owner's Response: I received a text from this guest on the evening she arrived that she'd forgotten to bring linens. I gave her the name and number of a local linen rental company and also suggested the Dollar Store which is less than a mile from our home. What she or someone in her group chose to do instead was to vandalize our locked owners cabinets and use the items within, a fact which she has neither denied nor apologized for. Weeks later my neighbor told me how many vehicles had been parked at our property during their stay, which made it obvious that their group had had more than 8 overnight guests. They also left a significant amount of food items in both the refrigerator and freezer, causing extra work for our cleaning crew. Most of our guests have been very respectful and pleasant to work with, thankfully. This group will not be returning, on that we agree.

It was a great get away, very clean and very well maintained. Nice view of the water from the deck. We would recommend this beach house and would definitely rent again.

Great Weekend

  • 5 of 5
We had a great weekend. The cabin is in a great location, close to beach and stores. It was clean, fully equipped and just the right size. We will definitely be calling Lisa again for a return visit.

Great location

  • 4 of 5
This house was a perfect location from the beach, the ferry, & the big store. The descriptions of the house are accurate. We are campers so we took our own chairs, grilling utensils, etc. but they did have them available. I definitely would recommend the house and would also consider renting again.

Great week at Stones Throw

  • 5 of 5
Stones Throw was just as described. It was clean, well equipped, comfortable and a great location with the beach being just a " stones throw " away and shopping for fresh seafood /groceries almost in sight.

The owner could not have been nicer or more helpful!

This is one to put on the list for return visits.
