About Francisco and Elva Gonzalez

We purchased this home 3 weeks before hurricane Ike, We rebuild this cottage after the hurricane, and used it for several years. At this time, we have decided to share the cottage with families who are looking for a quiet beach get-away.

Francisco and Elva Gonzalez purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Francisco and Elva Gonzalez chose Crystal Beach

A peaceful vacation cottage for a single family who enjoys the different beach activities.

What makes this cottage unique

Crystal Beach at the Bolivar Peninsula offers a unique location away from the crowded vacation resorts so you and your family can enjoy a peaceful vacation. At night, enjoy star gazing and/or making smores by the beach.

Great House!!

  • 4 of 5

Communication from owner was prompt and polite, great to work with. Really great house walking distance from nice, clean beach. Nice, huge upper patio with plenty of seating. Favorite feature was the outside shower. Wash the salt and sand away before heading upstairs with a HOT water tap, so you can use warm water. Fully enclosed for privacy with places to hang suits and towels. Only reason I did not give 5 stars was you are not allowed to flush any toilet paper. I'm sure it comes with the territory of a septic system so close to the water. I just wasn't expecting it and was a little grossed out. Had a wonderful time and would recommend this home to others!

Cozy beach cottage

  • 4 of 5

Perfect beach house for a small group! Access to the beach is awesome, a short walk...or drive your car right on the beach for access to cooler, towels, etc...especially convenient with small kids! Very clean beach in that area. Loved the outdoor shower for hosing down kids after the beach. 5 stars but for a few inconveniences...when they say no linens, they mean NONE! You not only have to bring sheets and towels, but wash cloths, hand towels, and kitchen towels...not even a kitchen sponge or bath were provided. We didn't bring paper plates or paper towels...but had to run to the store for those items. Also bring dish soap and hand soap and a hair dryer! There was a fully stocked kitchen- but dishes are NOT microwave safe...thus the need for paper plates. It rained most of our stay, and the driveway floods in heavy rain, so it was impossible to unload or get to the stairs without going through the standing water (which dried out by the last day after the sun came out). The storms did wash in some great shells though!! Oh...and only basic cable, so bring DVDs if you want to watch movies. Aside from those minor items- house was perfect for our mother/ daughter/ grandkids getaway...we all had a fantastic stay! Owners were very responsive and provided clear Check-in and out procedures. Now that we know what to bring...we would stay there again and recommend to friends!

great location, great price

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed this beach house very much, it was clean and comfortable, easy to find and very close to the beach. It has a large deck with nice ocean views and an excellent kitchen and bathroom. The owners were clear in their communication and made the whole experience very convenient. I'd recommend this rental to anyone looking to get away for a quiet beach vacation, close to excellent seafood restaurants.
