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.

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

Absolutely AMAZING

  • 5 of 5
Our family stay was 5 days, and it was by far the most relaxing vacation ever. The owners were outstanding in every way possible. The home was impeccable, and being only steps from the beach made fun in the ocean seamless. I highly recommend this beautiful home to anyone looking for a quiet, comfortable, family based vacation.

Wonderful house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5
Our family consists of 3 adults & 2 small children (one an infant). The house was perfect for us! It is the perfect size to give ample space for youngsters to play while being cozy & comfortable after a day on the beach. The views from the deck are beautiful & it's very easy to get to the beach via a quick walk. House amenities were excellent & the owner's graciousness simply made our stay even more perfect. Everything was as pictured in the listing & there were no surprises. It's a lovely home in a beautiful location. We will definitely be back!!

Perfect Beachfront Home for Family Vacation with Small Kids!

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at this home for a few days at the end of July with four generations of my family (ages five to ninety-three!). The photos don't do it justice; it is an amazing location and a beautiful and well-built home that would easily and comfortably sleep ten (we had eight) with lots of elbow room. The front porch faces the ocean and you can watch both the sunrise and sunset from it. The house is new, clean and well maintained. The owner, Margene, is very informative, helpful and responsive to questions. The beach itself is quiet during the week, but expect some partiers and loud music nearby on the weekend. If you're into wildlife, we saw a lot of interesting birds (I saw a nighthawk!) and we even spotted a coyote running on the beach during the sunrise Monday morning. Some unwanted wildlife in the form of mosquitos were a bit of a nuisance on our last day - the wind had died down and they were able to make it to the second floor porch! The charcoal grill lid on the ground level might need some attention but is functional. Parking is plentiful for guests, if needed, and Margene provides a map explaining the neighbor's yard boundaries so none of her renters park over the line. Overall, I would not only recommend this place to others but plan to book again!

Owner's Response: I need to mention that the neighboring homes are only used for vacations by the owners and their families and are NOT vacation rentals. 90 percent of the time they are vacant but occasionally the neighbors' families spend a few days. For the most part you will have the area and the beach to yourselves including the weekends. The owner of the neighboring property has been contacted.
