About Steve & Kristine

Our Beach Front home has been in our family for many, many years. As one of the thousands of homeowners devastated by Hurricane Ike, our first home was completely demolished by the storm; as was our local business. We are long time residents of Crystal Beach & can personally assure you it is a little slice of heaven that may not be well-known, but is filled with smiling faces and friendly people who will WELCOME YOU with real Southern Hospitality!

Steve & Kristine purchased this house in 2010

Why Steve & Kristine chose Crystal Beach

This Beach House is located in the heart of Crystal Beach with convenient access to everything you need! Just minutes away from the Port Boliver Ferry, enjoy Galveston at your pace and without the high prices of hotels & crowded beaches. Or, may we suggest (and highly recommend), simply staying on the island where we are positive you'll enjoy your vacation even more!

What makes this house unique

Granite Counter Tops, Hardwood Floors, New Appliances, Satellite TV in every room, Flat Screen TVs

Rental Home was beautiful

  • 5 of 5

House was exactly as described, very well equipped and very nice inside and out.

Beach was not very nice, logs dead trees everywhere washed up every morning.

A little slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

What a peaceful holiday weekend. I needed a place to get away from the crowds, to enjoy the New Years looking out over the water and this home was a little slice of heaven.

The house is at the end of the street so there was only 1 neighbor. It is right on the front row with an unobstructed view of the ocean. The house itself looks brand new on the inside. Decor is perfect, cozy and not overdone. Who ever built the house did an amazing job on the insulation because although it was extremely cold outside, the house was consistantly warm and quiet.

The beds were very comfy....making it hard to get out of bed in the morning. Everything was super clean.

I would highly recommend this home for a nice beach stay. I hope to rent it again when I need another vacation.

Bolivar is a narrow peninsula on the upper Texas coast between the Gulf of Mexico and East Galveston Bay. It lies in a northeasterly direction separated from Galveston Island by the Houston Ship Channel and the Bolivar Roads, 3 miles wide. Free Public Ferries link the Peninsula with Galveston Island.

The Peninsula is called 'an offshore sandbar at the eastern end of a chain of islands extending along the Texas and Mexico coasts'. The widest point of the Peninsula's 27 miles is between Crystal Beach and Caplen, (about 3 1/2 miles). It is also known as a barrier peninsula.

Bolivar Peninsula was named in honor of Simon Bolivar (1783-1836), a freedom leader fighting to free South and Central America from Spanish rule.

The industries of Bolivar Peninsula are mainly tourism and commercial fishing, concentrating on harvesting and marketing shrimp, crabs and oysters. Their boats are docked at the seafood houses, and are a great photo opportunity on a summer evening.

There are five small communities on the peninsula. Port Bolivar, Crystal Beach, Caplen, Gilchrist and High Island, none of which are incorporated. The residents of these communities are members of civic organizations, such as the Chamber of Commerce, Volunteer Fire Department, Emergency Medical Service, A.A.R.P., Lighthouse Krewe, Community Outreach, & Jesse Tree.

Crystal Beach has the largest population. It is primarily a resort community catering to summer tourists. There are several hundred beach houses available to rent on a weekly basis from the many real estate companies, or individual home owners. The rental units are all privately owned homes with full kitchens and sleeping facilities for families of any size.

You will find a variety of fine restaurants, grocery stores, a bank, water slide, night clubs, gift shops, video stores, convenience stores - even a Golf Course!

DIRECTIONS TO CRYSTAL BEACH:

FROM HOUSTON:

Take I-45 south to Galveston. After you pass over the causeway, continue down Broadway until you reach the beach. Turn left on Ferry Road, (two stop lights), and continue to the landing. It takes the free Galveston-Bolivar Ferry about 20 minutes to travel across the bay to Bolivar Peninsula.

When you exit the Ferry, you are on Highway 87 at the community of Port Bolivar, home of the Bolivar Lighthouse and the North Jetty, famous for fishing.

Crystal Beach is northeast on Highway 87 about 10 miles from the Ferry Landing. Our great Gulf front location makes summer, fall, spring and even winter months ideal for family vacations on Bolivar. Summer is the time for spending lazy days on the beach, shelling, crabbing or fishing. Spring is for birdwatching and more shelling, and the fall fishing is great.

ALTERNATE ROUTE from Houston (to avoid the Ferry). Take I-10 east to Winnie (exit# 828).

FROM BEAUMONT:

Take I-10 west to Winnie, then head south on Highway 124 until you come to the beach road, Highway 87. Turn right, go about 17 miles to Crystal Beach. In the community of Gilchrist, you will pass over the bridge at Rollover Fishing Pass.
