At day's end, grab your favorite beverage, put your favorite music on, and relax on the reclining outdoor funiture as the breeze blows over you. Enjoy the amazing sunsets on the sundeck, 'catch a falling star', or just gaze upon the 'man in the moon' illuminating the ocean's shore!

My wife and I were both born and raised in the Golden Triangle area. We bought our first beach home on this property years ago as a second vacation home. We made friends, enjoyed our family when they visited, and just loved being close to the sights, smells and sounds of the ocean. Unfortunately, Hurricane Ike took the house away from us- nothing was left except the property. Disheartened, many would not rebuild. But for us, we could not give up on the possibility of creating again what we had had before. And so this time we returned to build not only a home, but our dream vacation home. We find this home and all that it offers just amazing! We know that our guests will as well.

We live in the Golden Triangle area 30-45 minutes from this home located in Crystal Beach on the Bolivar Peninsula - 15 minutes from the Galveston ferry. We have been coming to Crystal Beach all of our lives for family vacations. We chose this property because of its short distance to the Gulf of Mexico. It has front row access to and an unobtructed view of the beach.
It is located 3 minutes from a large grocery store, gas, and church services.
It is located on the second row from the beach with a beautiful view of the ocean.
We built a 240 foot wrap around deck and 96 foot covered deck for entertainment.
Our favorite ritual is to drink our favorite beverage and listen to music at day's end while gazing at 'man in the moon' illuminating the ocean's shore!

The Golden View is a beautiful beach house. You could tell that the owners put a lot of thought and consideration into creating a wonderful rental. It is conviently located in proximity to the beach and to surrounding stores. The view may have been obstructed by another beach house, but it still held a great view of the water. The patio was AMAZING. We spent many nights having dinner and just sitting out there talking. The breeze that the water brought to the house was refreshing. The house came well stocked with things we needed. The kitchen had plenty of utensils. One thing that became a nuisance was that the knives weren't as sharp as they could have been in the kitchen (not a big complaint), but if you are cutting meats for dinner, maybe consider bringing a knife from home. The bedrooms were great and comfortable. I liked that the bedrooms were seperated by the breezeway. It allowed for great privacy with the group we had. It was a little strange that the master bedroom did not have a bathroom door, but we managed to not let it bother us too much. I felt like none of the bathroom doors locked with ease, so if you are one of those people that need bathroom privacy, you may want to think twice. The living room was comfortable and cozy. It might have been a smaller space, but there was plenty of room for a group of us to sit around the living room and play games and watch movies. The house came with multiple stereo systems to use throughout, and it also came with a large television in the living room and televisions in a couple of the other rooms. The only other thing that was overwhelming was the amount of cleaning that needed to be done after our stay. There was a pretty hefty list of "things to clean and do" in each room. It was almost stressful to get up the next morning and realize we had a ton of things we needed to do before we left at 11 AM. The list was very extensive in that we had to vaccuum all the rooms, do laundry, clean the bathrooms, and clean the dishes AND empty the dishwasher. I felt like we were getting it cleaned up for the next people that were staying there. It was a little too much for a place that you are suppose to be on vacation for and shouldn't have to worry about those things. Make sure the people you come with are cleaners. Overall the house was great; I absolutely loved the location and the set up. It definitely was a great space for us to enjoy our weekend, and would definitely consider coming back! Thanks for great stay!
This is a wonderful vacation rental!!! Jake and Renea have really gone to the extreme to have everything anyone could want for the perfect vacation!!! The wrap-around porch view absolutley devine - sitting out there watching the beautiful sunset! So close to the beach, a 2 minute or less walk! The inside of the home, so elegantly furnished, had everything anyone needs - even a set of telescopes! The guest house across the breezeway was also an asset - giving the main renters privacy. Largest capacity washer/dryer, making washing beach towels and personal items an asset!! All one needs to bring is food and beach toys!!! Close to the main grocery store.. I recommend this place to EVERYONE that could ever want a perfect vacation!
We stayed here for a week and absolutely loved it. It has beautiful views plus all the comforts of home. We enjoyed swimming, fishing and visiting Rollover Pass a short drive up the road. The home is gorgeous with an amazing deck! The sea weed began rolling in the Monday after we arrived. Unfortunately they did not clean the beach very well and only came by once the week we were vacationing. I recommend bringing a heavy duty rake and shovel for clearing a path thru the sea weed if you're planning a trip anytime soon. While the beach itself was a bit of a disappointment this home and it's views left us wanting nothing. I highly recommend it.
THis was a wonderful beach home. We traveled all the way from Kansas and were very satisfied with the beach house and it's amenities. It's roomy and has great upgrades that make the stay very comfortable and enjoyable. The deck is wonderful. Although a house is being built in front of the cabin, the deck extends well beyond and there is still a great, unobstructed view of the ocean. We sat outside on the deck every night and ate dinner and watched the ocean. We rented a golf cart for the week which was awesome. You can walk to the beach in two minutes, but the kids loved the golf cart and we could "cruise" up and down the beach. The "Big Store" is just down the road and has everything you need. Stingaree Restaurant is good and well as Steve's Landing Restaurant. We hope to be back and will definitely rent from these owners again. Thanks, Jake!!
My wife and I took our twin daughters to Jake's house as a graduation gift. The house was very nice. The best part was the deck which was covered and equipped with new furniture. It was the perfect place to enjoy a seafood dinner or just sit back and watch the waves and ships.
The kitchen was roomy and well kitted out. There are plenty of plates, glasses, and cookware. The bedrooms are big and the beds are comfortable. There is a laundry room that also has everything you will need.
The location is very close to the beach. We could walk there in about one or two minutes. The view of the ocean is good. When we got there, the view was unobstructed, but a house was being built that will take part of the view. Regardless, the view will still be great because the house is located on a street which will still provide an ample view of the ocean.
Crystal Beach itself is is nice. There is not a lot to do, which is exactly what we wanted. The house is convenient to "The Big Store" and Stingaree's Restaurant. The free ferry to Galveston is about a 15 minute drive away. If you've never ridden a ferry on the ocean, you have to try it. The neighborhood was quiet.
