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.

Great Memories Made at Very Nice Place

  • 5 of 5
We all loved the house. Everything we could possibly want was there for us to use. Comfortable, spacious, well maintained home. The weather was in the 70s!!!!!! Such a great deck, ocean view, listening to the waves, drinking our morning coffee. Nice place to walk and comb the beach. I would love to come again. Thank you for giving us a great place to make memories!

Awesome Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Perfect location, gorgeous sunrises and relaxing walks at your back door. The house felt like home, very comfortable. I hate for the owners that 2 houses were built between their house and the beach. The position of the deck tells me that their house was meant to be on the front row. Even with all that . . . I would definitely book with them again. Thanks for the hospitality.

Great house on the beach!

  • 4 of 5
Loved the house. Very clean and comfortable. Loved that it is pet friendly too. Just steps to a walk on the beach that was for the most part private, saw very few people. We even found some beach glass on our walks. Owner was terrific to work with, even after we discovered the new construction would be going on every day of our vacation. Will stay again, because it's nice to find an owner that actually cared about our happiness. Thank you again for that:)

Our Stay

Our vacation was so much fun. The home is beautiful and the owners are wonderful to work with. This is a great place if you are looking for a relaxing trip and some time away from the fast pace of things. We will be renting from the owners again. Thank you for sharing your home.

Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My family enjoyed our stay at the beach house. The amenities and details were wonderful. Also, it's a great place for dog owners because of the gated deck and the kennel downstairs. Our only complaint is that the "beach front" label is misleading as the new construction is between the house and the beach and does obstruct the beach view to an extent. This wasn't noted when we made the booking, so it was a bit of a surprise.

Owner's Response: Thank you for reminding me to correct the listing, I totally forgot about that. When we first built the home, we were beach front, since then the county allowed construction on the lot in front of out home, so the view now is partially obstructed, although it still has a great view and it is still only 40 steps from the beach. Thanks for reminding me to change the description. I am glad you enjoyed your stay at out home.
