About Margene Walz

Hi, Welcome to my home – My name is Margene Walz. I am the owner and am thrilled to show you around. Many years ago I moved to California from Nebraska but have always missed the mid-western values and hospitality. Through the advice of my brother Mike Walz of Crystal Beach's Walz Family Builders I seized the opportunity to sell my California condominium and build on Bolivar. I appreciate the area and the hospitality. It is like coming back to my roots. I am very pleased to be able to share my home with you. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. (By the way...the picture is of my great nephew, Alex. He photographs cuter than I do.)

Margene Walz purchased this house in 2014

Why Margene Walz chose Crystal Beach

Since my brother owns a home and a business in Crystal Beach I have visited many times. Each time I fell more and more in love with the area. I decided to invest my retirement money here and I can't wait to share this peaceful stress-free beach with you.

What makes this house unique

The front deck is 16' deep - 8' is covered and 8' is uncovered. Guests are able to enjoy the shade, read, sip a glass of wine or beer or tan in the sunshine. The deck which wraps around 3 sides of the house has private doors from the Master bedroom and Guest bedroom. Each has its own romantic personal space. But the most impressive thing about this home is the spectacular beach front view. The family area under the house includes an enclosed shower, bar with enclosed refrigerator and 2 built-in picnic tables. It is a wonderful area that will accommodate many family members and guests. Plus it is brand new and offers you all the comforts of home with the additional bonus of hearing and watching the surf.

What a wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Not having been on a vacation in 10 years we couldn't not have had a better time if we tried! The house is so wonderfully comfortable, the view incredible and we had the beach almost completely to ourselves! Once we figured out what dining choices were open (as it was off-season) we also had some very good food (my husband is hooked on barbecued crab from Stingaree)! We had planned several outings to Galveston while we were there but we couldn't drag ourselves away from the wonderful deck. We did take the ferry to Galveston but came back right away...too much traffic...too many people! The only problems we encountered were cell phone service (it was terrible) but this is no reflection on our accommodations. My husband went into WiFi withdrawal but it was good for him...lol! We will be making every effort to return asap! Our border collie, Mollie Moon had the time of her life...she is well traveled to mountains and such but it was her first time at the ocean...and she loved it! We beach-combed daily and found some very good shells.

Owner's Response: I have always wanted my guests to have a completely relaxing stay at Pelican Bay so I never put in wifi. But so many have gone through "wifi withdrawals" I am looking into having it installed. My goal is to have something by the middle of November if not sooner. Regarding the cell phone service.....my brother and I both have AT & T and have no problems. Most of the guests seem to have no problems. I guess it depends on who the carrier is. Since it is a very relaxing spot who wants to be bothered with phone calls anyway?

Surprise 70th birthday celebration

  • 5 of 5
Best beach house ever! We surprised my mom for her 70th birthday with a weekend at this beautiful beach house. We wanted an unobstructed view of the ocean and this house delivered just that and much more! Honestly the pictures do not do it justice. It is much larger than it looks online with everything you could possibly need for a perfect getaway. In fact, the minute my mom walked in she said "let's rent it for a week in the summer!" We had 8 people spend the night with a few additional family members there for the day and there was plenty of room for everyone. The owner was so pleasant and easy to communicate with. We will definitely be booking this beach house again!

The perfect place to relax and enjoy the beach front views and activities from shrimp fishing boats to everyday beach activities. The house is impeccable! Newly built and completely stocked for your enjoyment, by the looks of everything you would believe we were the first to ever stay there.

It was just my wife and myself and of course Ginger ( our Chihuahua ) we enjoyed hours of riding our buggy up and down the beach stopping only to feed the sea gulls or take pictures. All the sea weed is gone now and mosquitos left with it, we were there 5 days and never had any issues.

Anyone staying here will be pleasantly surprised with the whole package, as the title states I believe this is as good as it gets.

We will return and are looking forward to it...

Birthday Weekend

I must say of all the times we have rented in Crystal Beach this was hands down the best most relaxing experience we have ever had! This will be our home away from home for years to come.

Owner's Response: I am thrilled when I receive reviews from my guests and they talk about how relaxing their stay was. As you will notice most of the reviews mention their ability to totally relax during their time at Pelican Bay. And isn't that is what vacations are all about; relaxing and recharging? It has always been our goal to insure our guests are able to achieve this.

Wedding weekend

  • 5 of 5
My family and I attended a family friends wedding that was celebrated on Boliver. What a fabulous house for the weekend. We sat on the deck most mornings and every night. We were only 5 miles from the celebration site so it was great to be able to run back and forth. There were 10 of us and I was a little worried about being tight, but we fit perfectly for the weekend. It might've been a little tight for a week, but there were no complaints from my kiddos. I had 5 adult boys with one of them married, a girlfriend of another, my daughter, husband and I. The kitchen was well stocked and everything was clean and organized. We brought paper plates and cups but that is only because we wanted cleanup as easy as possible. The yard was well maintained and marked clearly. There was also plenty of parking. The booklet with checkout rules was easy to follow and it was great to have a list of restaurants that were on the island not to mention where the store was. I also have to mention that one of the deciding factors was the price -- I think we got a real bargain considering we all fit in one house, we were close to the wedding without having to go across the ferry to Galveston and we were literally steps from the beach!!

As for the beach, the seaweed was bad, which is what we had heard. Once you got in the water it wasn't too bad and the people we saw were all so friendly. The Mosquitos were a little annoying by the seaweed but on the deck with a little breeze they didn't bother us. (The wedding we attended was another story. The Mosquitos were awful and the two cans of spray that we invested in was a million dollar investment) :)

I would highly recommend this property. Margene made it very clear that if we had had any problems that they were only a phone call away. Luckily we had no worries at all. Next time I would love to spend a little more time on the beach and enjoying the weather -- they may just hear from us again soon!

Thanks Margene!

Owner's Response: As "Wedding Weekend" guest stated, the mosquitoes at the wedding site were unbearable. We started spraying child/pet safe bug repellant not only on our property but on the property behind us and all the grass area in front of the beach house. We want our guests to be comfortable and thoroughly enjoy their stay
