Overview

Crystal Beach House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath, large deck to enjoy the smell and sound of the ocean

Only 70 feet from the Beach with excellent ocean views from both sides of the deck. Since we built the home there has been a home constructed in front of ours, so the view has been partially blocked to the front, but there are still excellent views to both sides of the ocean. Our Dog Friendly home features 3 Bedrooms; one with a king bed and master bath, another with a queen bed, and the third bedroom with 4 bunk beds. Sleeps 8 easily, more using the provided air beds. Large living areas all with excellent views of the water. Large kitchen with granite countertops and stainless appliances. Did I mention the extra large deck where you can watch the kids playing in the surf? Enjoy your view and see if you can catch a glimpse of the dolphin just outside your front door!

There is also a 2 person ocean Kayak and a canoe both are quality inflatable sports gear, they are not toys for children to use. Use at your own risk, there are also 4 life jackets make sure you use them if you use the Kayak or Canoe, also please put them back as you found them, and please store all equipment and toys neatly back in the garage after use. The cleaning crew does not clean up the garage area after you leave so please put things back in their place before you leave. Do not count on any equipment being there for your use since things do get lost, broken and such, but do feel free to use whatever is in the Garage while you are at our home, it is all included in your rental. There are also beach toys for the kids to use, it changes all the time again since things get broken, damaged and lost, but if it is in there it is there for your enjoyment.

About Pete and Betsy Grosso

Hi, thanks for visiting our home. Pete and Betsy Grosso, the owners, welcome you. We lost our original home to Hurricane Ike a few years ago, and have just now completed construction of our new home which we offer for you to enjoy. We decided to name the home Do-Over Dunes, since we did have to do it over, this time just better and larger. We reside in Waxahachie, Texas, a small town just south of Dallas. We offer you our Texas hospitality and welcome you to home on the beach.

Pete and Betsy Grosso purchased this house in 2013

Why Pete and Betsy Grosso chose Crystal Beach

On our first trip to the Boliver Peninsula we fell in love with the beach and decided to invest our retirement money in what we like to call paradise. We would like nothing more than to share it with you.

What makes this house unique

The deck is fantastic, it is half covered and half open so there is a spot for everyone. Shade or sun, it's up to you. The home is brand new with all the creature comforts of home. All leather living furnuiture and even a recliner to take a nap in while watching and listening to the surf, just a gew feet from the home. Every room has a view with large oversized windows, so no matter where you are in the home you can see and hear the surf. Central airconditioning keeps you cool when indoors. You just have to visit to appreciate this home. We built the home higher than most which provides excellent views up and down the beach.

We'll always be Young at heart!!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home today after an extremely restful stay at Do-Over Dunes. Being a bit handicapped, I must say the handicapped height toilets and walk- in shower were very much appreciated!! The kitchen was wonderful and we ate all our meals there, as we have dietary limits. The deck. Ahhh, the deck. We spent hours sitting, watching, enjoying. We gave Pete and Betsy a few little ideas for convenience..and they promise to have them available when we return. Sleeping was great. Beds are comfy. Thanks for sharing. God is so good to us. Look forward to returning, even though it is quite a drive.

Perfect for spring vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our family of 4 and our lab. Great beach access, quiet and moderately private. My kids went swimming everyday and used all the beach toys that the home had. We also loved the morning walks on the beach and searching for shells and sea glass. The house was spacious and perfectly equipped with all needed amenities. We cooked fabulous shrimp and crab dinners each night. Very accessible to restaurants, groceries and the ferry ride to galveston. See you next year!

We had an amazing time. The beach house was beautiful and clean and so close to the ocean! Our family of 7 had a memorable vacation and will definitely stay again if we go back to Texas.

Vacation stay

  • 4 of 5

Although cabin is not beach front it is very close, with only two cabins between you and the beach. You still have a good view of the beach at both corners of the deck. The three cabins are so close together you will definitely get to know your neighbors. As for fishing, the location of the cabin is great. It is just past roll over pass, A very popular fishing destination. The cabin is also in a nice secluded location,in a small block of its own cabins away from the other crowded neighborhoods. The cabin is practically brand-new everything inside is very nice neat and clean. A very nice vacation spot for the family.

Lovely property

  • 5 of 5

This rental home was wonderful for a beach vacation. It was not overcrowded with furniture, had everything we needed to enjoy our stay comfortably. The deck was AWESOME, the interior was clean clean clean and comfortable. I loved that it was so close to the beach and in an area less built up with houses. The below-the -house picnic bench and shower to get the sand off was really convenient. The open concept living / kitchen and view of the deck was great for enjoying our time in the house, the kitchen was well stocked with tableware, utensils and cookware. All we had to do was add groceries.

The owner provides great directions.

We really enjoyed our stay and plan to come back.

Best rental ever!

  • 5 of 5

I had about 14 people come stay for my birthday party at the beach. Everyone was able to sleep comfortably. The house is BEAUTIFUL. Everything was very clean and the directions were easy to follow thanks to the owners! Me and my crew enjoyed our stay and they all complimented my choice for rental houses :) thanks so much for letting us make memories in your beautiful home.
