Overview

Crystal Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Imagine enjoying a cup of coffee watching the sun rise over the beach. The Blue Mermaid is an ideal home for families. The home has three bedrooms upstairs, one downstairs, and a sleeper sofa. The master bedroom has a private deck where you can sit and watch the beautiful sunsets in the evening. The master bathroom is spacious with a vanity and jetted bath tub. There is a kids themed room next to the master bedroom that has two single beds. We also have a blow up mattress that can sleep two more, if necessary. The third bedroom upstairs has a queen bed in it with tv set and room for clothing in dresser. Downstairs is a three season room with a two sleeper futon and single bed. Finally, there is a sleeper sofa in the living room that sleeps two. The half bath is downstairs and the two full baths are upstairs. There is also a heated outdoor shower on the first floor.

There are plenty of activities on-site including games, horse shoes and a blow-up swimming pool for the kids. The beach is a short walk around the corner. There is no vehicle beach access within our subdivision, so traffic is minimal. There is a bridge that goes from the subdivision to the beach. The bridge is wide enough for a golf cart.

We have worked hard to make this beach cabin as much like home as possible. We have deep freezers for your frozen foods to go along with a coffee/espresso maker for your early morning coffee. Upstairs is a wet bar, with small refrigerator for that evening beverage on the upper deck. Washer and dryer also on site. All the amenities of home to go with the beautiful beach setting.

We look forward to you as a guest at our beach home.

Keywords: Gulf-view home located on a cul-de-sac. Family friendly. Wood floors, marble kitchen counter tops. Well-decorated.

About The Owner

My wife and I bought this cabin this Spring. We always enjoyed the beach and dreamed of a place on Crystal Beach. With 5 kids, a kid friendly place was important to us. We feel Blue Mermaid is just the place.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Crystal Beach

We lucked into Blue Mermaid. We looked at a few places online and Blue Mermaid called out to us. After seeing it for the first time, we knew it had to be ours. It is elegantly furnished, modern, close to the beach with a beach view. It also is located in a quiet subdivision with minimal traffic.

Furthermore, we are about a mile from Stingaree restaurant, ten minutes from Rollover Pass, where there are other small restaurants and fising. It all added up to the perfect beach house for us.

Beach week with the the grandkids

  • 5 of 5
This home is stunning. We were so comfortable the entire time we were there, it was clean and well maintained. Dave and Rebecca (owners) were great. I would recommend this beach home to anyone. It was wonderful to be able to drive our car onto the beach from a nearby road to park and unload our beach equipment. Golf carts would be handy but not necessary and can be rented on the island. The beach goes on for miles and miles and it is clean and fun to play on. I will say that one of those 10 x 10 canope tents that you can buy at Academy or any sports store really came in handy on the beach to sit under since we were there in July and it was HOT. The Stingray Restaurant has wonderful food and it was fun to watch the huge barges come in and out while we ate. The Ferry is fun to ride, we saw Dolphins and other sea life while aboard it. We loved sitting on the decks at the house at night, with the cool sea breezes. The whole community around the Mermaid is just lovely. We all had a wonderful time and hope to go back again soon.

Great for an extended family

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time. First time beach house renters and the owner was great. Everything and more you needed to cook for a large family in the kitchen. Really need to rent a golf cart if you have elderly family or multiple small children. The house is beautiful and provides lots of privacy for an extended family.

Birthday Long Weekend with Family and Friends

  • 5 of 5
House is wonderful! The place is very spacious with all of the amenities of home. The owner was very helpful and with the beach a short walk away, we plan to try to stay here again when we come to Crystal Beach.

The kitchen was very well stocked as well as a huge pantry for storage. The only negative which really didn't impact us was the description did include air hockey which ended up being a small table top unit kept in the closet. I would suggest taking that out of the description as it is not needed to sell staying here.

Thanksgiving With Family

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful family time on Thanksgiving at the Blue Mermaid. It is a very beautiful house with all the comforts of home. It is beautifully decorated with everything furnished that you could possibly need. The owners were very friendly and easy to work with. Thanks for a wonderful time and we hope to return.

Everything we expected and more

  • 5 of 5
My family and I have stayed in several beach homes along the Texas coast and we are always very picky when we decide on one. We narrowed our choices down to several nice homes in Crystal Beach but the deciding factor was how accommodating Katherine was. She was very polite and professional from my first question to after our stay. You will not get this treatment with a property management company.

The home is very well maintained including great beds, air conditioning, kitchen and bath fixtures, etc. Even the garage was clean and well organized and Katherine stocked things we did not even expect with the rental including numerous beach chairs, a full sized washer game, many kids toys, etc. The kitchen was very well stocked and included things we have never gotten with a rental. (High end coffee/espresso machine, deep fryer, nice assortment of spices, more than enough silverware/dishes, etc.) The one thing we would have liked to have had is a garbage disposal but that's pretty minor.

Parking is great with 3 covered spots and room for 2 more cars if needed. The home is at the end of a cul de sac so there is not much danger letting the kids play outside either. Getting to the beach is easy whether walking, driving your golf cart, or driving your truck. The walk is about 2 short blocks to the crossover which we had no problem driving our 6 passenger cart over either. If you take your truck it's only about 3 blocks down the main road to the closest beach access road. You may not think about these details when you look for a home but you should.

As far as local attractions and recommendations go I can't say much since we stay on the beach most of the time. We ventured out to Stingaree's and it was very good. We had a few drinks at Ship's Wheel where the locals hang out. Good prices and interesting conversation. We also took the kids to the Houston Space Center which isn't too far away. (except the brutally long wait at the ferry)

Bottom line: If you're bound for CB you need to seriously consider this home.
