Overview

Crystal Beach Cabin Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12

Street's Retreat is a beautiful beach side cottage with great views and all the conveniences of a modern home!

If you are looking for a beach cabin where everyone has their own space, this is the place. With 4 bedrooms and 4 baths, this is one of the only rental cabins where every bedroom has it's own bathroom! There are two bedrooms downstairs (on the main floor) and two bedrooms upstairs. Three bedrooms have queen size beds and one bedroom has a full size bed. The smallest bedroom downstairs shares it's bathroom with the hall in order for your guests to have access as well. One bedroom upstairs also has two additional full size built-in bunk beds! All bedrooms have their own cable TV for those late night movies or when the kids want to plug in their PlayStation/Xbox's!

The house has its own dedicated WiFi signal just in case you need to send that last email or need to get on the internet.

You can wash the sand out of your bathing suits in the stackable washer/dryer so that you don't go home with any dirty laundry. Did I mention when you get back from the sandy beach that you can just rinse off in our enclosed downstairs sand shower!!! If you aren't too sandy then just rinse your feet off with the foot sprayer at the bottom of the stairs!

Everyone will feel like part of the action in the fully furnished kitchen that opens into the great/family room with it's 20ft. ceilings! The couch and loveseat is just the place to catch a nap or watch a little television. You'll also notice the dining room table is a beautiful custom table made from reclaimed wood that was from historical homes destroyed during Hurricane IKE in 2008.

After dinner you'll want to go for a leisurely walk to look for sea shells down the beach while the sun sets or just hang out on the deck in a lounge chair and listen to the waves take all the stress away!!

Wherever or whatever you decide to do at Street's Retreat you will not go wrong. Remember, your on vacation.....relax and enjoy!!!!

About Jenny Overstreet

My wife and I grew up about an hour from Crystal Beach and each of us have our own fond memories of being on the beach while growing up in this area. After having three wonderful kids, we knew we wanted to get a beach house so that they could make their own great memories with their friends and family. We always feel relaxed and are able to shed the stress away from whatever is going on with our jobs, etc. Even though the city is just a short drive away, we always feel like we are on an island!!

Jenny Overstreet purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Jenny Overstreet chose Crystal Beach

Our family had bought this as an investment in 2005. After having the property for just a short period, we realized that we loved the area so much that we just couldn't sale it and decided to keep it for ourselves. We did a complete remodel in 2007 only to have Hurricane IKE completely level the house in 2008 after the house had stood for 51 years! We didn't think twice about rebuilding because of all the great times and many memories that we have down at the beach.

What makes this cabin unique

The location of this house in such a family-friendly area and the incredible views make this house one of the best in Crystal Beach. Having 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms makes it very nice for older kids, other couples, or even other families that are vacationing together! Having the clean, vacant lot in front of our house is a huge plus for the kids or just so that you are guaranteed a great view of the beach forever!

Great Place

  • 4 of 5
We chose this home for a weekend getaway with 6 adults and 4 small children. It was a beautiful home and we would choose to stay there again. I will agree with the last review, the beds were the only reason I would not give the place 5 stars. One bed frame upstairs was very wobbly, and the mattresses in 2 of the rooms "croaked" whenever you moved. The full beds were "cozy" for the adults (3 couples), and we would prefer to see queens.

Our children loved the deck and the view. The location is perfect, and we really enjoyed the easy access to the beach.
The kitchen was stocked with wonderful pots/pans, and we were able to do all our meals with the utensils provided. Also, having a bathroom for every bedroom was a wonderful luxury.

This house is in a perfect location and we thought it would be perfect for our needs with 4 bedrooms & 4 bathrooms, and it would been except for the beds. At first we were all dismayed at having to take our own linens & towels. Then we tired to sleep. The full size beds were not big enough for grown men & women to sleep in comfortably. The bed in the room with the bunks beds was so squeaky that everyone was awaken when someone just rolled over in it. We moved to sofa to sleep. We did love everything else this house has to offer but would not rent it again unless the beds were replaced.

Owner's Response: I really appreciate your review of our home. We were just able to rebuild our home since it was blown away during Hurricane Ike so we are appreciative of any suggestions that will make our home better. We want you to know that we are in the process of purchasing new beds to accommodate a more pleasant stay. Again, thank you for choosing "Street's Retreat" for your vacation.

Adorable beach house; Perfect for groups!

  • 5 of 5
Let me start by saying that this house is even cuter in person than the pictures make it look! It was very well decorated, clean, and the perfect size for our large group. Everyone who came LOVED it!!!

There were 8 adults and 3 kids in our group. This house was the perfect fit for all of us! The floor plan is laid out very well (my daughters loved the bunk beds!), and we loved that we each had our own bathroom (3 of the bathrooms were inside the bedrooms; one bathroom is in the hall and shared with the house). It would have been nice if at least one of the rooms had a king sized bed, but overall we were comfortable.

The beach is about a one minute walk from the house, and is visible from the upper deck. It was great to be able to see our family on the beach when some of us stayed behind at the house. The upper deck has a great view of the beach, which is only partially obstructed by 2 nearby houses. The beach was about as clean as one should expect for Galveston.

The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, utensils, cups, bowls, etc., which was appreciated. The icemaker/water dispenser in the fridge didn't work, so bring your own ice and water. Dish soap was provided. I wish they would have had hand soap in all the bathrooms and in the kitchen, but only 2 bathrooms had soap. :/

There is a super cute shop at the end of the street (I think it was called Latitude 29.2). They sell things like souvenirs, flip-flops, sunglasses, clothes, home decor, toys, etc., and nearly every square inch of the store was covered in merchandise. We enjoyed looking around in there while we were in the area.

Our only 2 major complaints (one of which isn't any fault of the homeowners)... 1) -The beds in the two upstairs bedrooms (not the bunk beds) were very squeaky. Every time one of us rolled over in the bed, our spouse and our kids in the room heard and would stir. That made for somewhat restless sleep for all of us. 2) -The mosquitoes were HORRIBLE!!!!! As soon as we drove up, they started swarming our cars. We bought foggers, spray, and citronella candles, but they were still too bad for us to enjoy the downstairs patio or outdoor shower. Thankfully they weren't as bad on the upper deck, but they were still quite a nuisance. Maybe it was the time of year and all the rain we've had lately, but I'd suggest being prepared!

Overall, we loved the house and hope to come back again in the near future! Thanks to the homeowners for sharing this gem with us! :)

Our stay at Great Seaside cottage was excellent. We had 12 people with us and the space was perfect. The walk to beach is seconds away. This is the absolute perfect home for a getaway. The homeowner was super friendly and acommadated my family and i to a perfect stay at their home. The upstairs deck was my favorite at night. The sun was behind us which made it perfect for the little ones to play or the adults to hang out. I wanna come back and stay longer next time.

GREAT Multi Family Beach House

  • 5 of 5
My family and friends REALLY enjoyed this beach home and are considering staying there again next year as it is an annual Easter tradition for us. There was MORE than enough space for all 8 of us staying there. This is home is only steps away from the beach which was by far the best part. The ONLY thing missing was sheets. We did have to purchase queen and full sheets for all 6 beds prior to our stay as we do not have either of those size beds in our home. I highly recommend this home for your next family beach get away!! We look forward to another Easter here!!
