About Owner/Manager

Hi, I'm Carol, I and my husband grew up in N.E. Iowa and went to school in Winthrop ' East Buchanan High'. We had been married 49 years until recently my husband Jim passed away. I want to welcome all my renters to a quite spot on the enter coastal canal. I am living in Kountze, TX. so I can rent out my home on the beach. We rebuilt this home after we lost our home in Hurricane Ike in 2008. Please call me if you would like to rent from me at 409-503-7900

Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2011

Why Owner/Manager chose Crystal Beach

Jim and I always enjoyed the view of the barges as the went by and the boaters. Jim was a commercial fisherman and had to be by the water. I have a little business next property over that is a seafood retail. We sell Shrimp and Fish and ice.

What makes this house unique

We provide you with all the free ice you'll need for your stay and there is a nice breezy place under house with picnic table and BBQ .

Great beach weekend

  • 5 of 5
The house was great, and the lessor, Nancy, could not have been more helpful. Kitchen and bathrooms were fully stocked (less food and consumables, of course), and whole house was clean. Nancy turned the air down for us before we arrived so it wasn't sweltering, and was very helpful with directions. We ran into her at The Big Store and she went out of her way to ask us how everything was going. Free ice next door was nice, too. House is on a canal, not the beach, so it's a little drive but this place is great, well worth the money.

Amazing -- really above and beyond expectations!

  • 5 of 5
This was my first experience with organizing any vacation rental in general. Nancy Harris of Sunny Times Rentals was managing the property for the owner at the time, and she was an absolute godsend. Despite being personally very busy with her own properties and business, she answered every single email and text message I sent regarding everything ranging from fishing to the ferry schedule. On the day before our vacation, she texted me to confirm check in times, and was extremely flexible when my party ended up arriving much later than anticipated. When we arrived, she took time out of her day to drive down to the property and turn on the air conditioner, etc. in anticipation of our arrival, and then the following day she gave us fishing tips and even invited us over to Ritas and Cream for free drinks and desserts -- her treat. This really made the entire experience amazing for me and my entire group of friends. Like the post says, you can also get as much free ice as you could possibly desire from the Fish & Shrimp market directly next door -- it's a giant walk in freezer... just bring a cooler.

The actual property is amazing too. The pictures actually really don't do it justice. The kitchen actually is way more roomy than I thought it would be. Instead of the table shown, there's a picnic table & benches, so your entire party (10 people) can pretty much fit at or around it. The kitchen was pretty well stocked with spices, rubs, etc and there were a ton of bowls, utensils -- pretty much everything you would want or need. Bring the dogs! There are cages and treats!

The sleeping situation is also much better than you'd think from the pictures. There are 4 twin beds (2 in each of the two fronts rooms, as shown in the pictures), but then there's a back room that has 2 large bunks -- each of the bottom bunks can easily fit 2 people, and each of the top bunks are twins as well, so in total all 10 people can comfortably sleep on beds. For some reason, this back room isn't pictured, but it's actually really nice and roomy (and has an attached bathroom), as well as a flat screen TV!

As far as fishing -- my friends and I are not huge fishers, but we did catch quite a few crabs, quite easily. And, you're allowed to go fishing on the small pier b the fish market. I saw that other people had caught huge fish out there... the kind that you photograph because they're the size of a small adolescent.

All in all, a great experience. Thanks Nancy!
