About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

New in 2010! Located in the first row right on the sandy beach- FANTASTIC views in both directions-nothing but beach and water with beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Great location in Crystal Beach. Family oriented: the large living room/dining room/kitchen area is a favorite place for family and friends to gather. There's plenty of room for everyone with a large dining table plus seating at the breakfast bar. The supersized deck on the main level has a gas grill, picnic table and a double stairway that deposits you right on the sandy beach! Enjoy sun or shade on this deck while sipping an early morning cup of joe or an afternoon cocktail. There is also a main floor master suite with walk in closet and private bath. The second bedroom is on the upper level and has two queen sized beds and a full bath across the hallway. The 'bunk room' has 3 bunk beds with double beds on the bottoms, single beds on top. The third bath and laundry room are right outside this bedroom door. The upper level family room has a wet bar and french doors to the upper level deck: a great place to watch the dolphins play in the surf!

Visit us once and you'll make it a yearly destination. A life time of fond memories are created here. Enjoy swimming, surfing, beachcombing and fishing right out side the front door. Join in or watch the fun from the multiple decks overlooking miles of uninterrupted beach and water.

And for our bird watchers and nature lovers, join us in March and April to watch a variety of migratory birds in the world class Audubon Area specifically set aside for our feathered friends. Sorry, no spring breakers! This is not a party house and is reserved for our more discerning guests who will appreciate and respect it.

July 4th 2016

  • 4 of 5

This home was perfect for what we wanted for our first 4th in Texas. We invited another couple from WA state to join us. We cooked at home almost every night. Stepped out in the morning to a beautiful deck where we enjoyed our coffee. We swam every day in the surf and had cocktails every evening.

We rented golf carts, went deep sea fishing, and enjoyed the Schletterbuan.

Can wait to go back.

Absolutely Perfect!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was PERFECT for us! The huge front porch with awesome views was my favorite, and being able to step off it directly into the sand of the beach access point was ideal.... no long walks to get around the dunes made running back and forth from the beach to the house quick and easy, even for the kids. All the kids especially loved the bunk room downstairs and having their own living room upstairs. The grocery store was just about a mile up the road and the kitchen stocked everything else we needed to cook our meals. We have stayed at several others, but this will definitely be our new "go-to" house for Crystal Beach!

Perfect Location! Wonderful House! Easy Booking!

  • 5 of 5

Location Location Location!! The house is right on the beach. The back porch overlooks the Gulf and beach which makes for a perfect place to sit back and relax in the provided rocking chairs. The house was as described and perfect for our family of 6 adults and 2 small kids. It had room for a lot more though. Three full bathrooms was very convenient. We found the house clean and ready for our vacation when we arrived. We did all of our meals at the house and the kitchen had everything we needed. There is a charcoal grill on the deck that we also used. Overall we rate it as excellent and will plan to return in the future.

GREAT Guys Only Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The guys came back raving about what a GREAT time they had on their mens only weekend. The house was even better than they expected and located perfectly on the beach. They enjoyed it so much that several of us will be booking and coming as families to stay there again. The main purpose was not only a get away for the men but also to fish. They had a great day of fishing. The next night they prepared some of the fish they caught for their dinner.

Thanks for sharing your house with the public.

Many blessings to your family.

Most relaxed Thanksgiving ever !

  • 5 of 5

Home and location are beautiful. We fixed our Thanksgiving Dinner with ease, the kitchen is well stocked with all the utensils, pots & pans needed. After dinner we opened the front glass doors and took a nap listening to the ocean. We then had our dessert and coffee upstairs on the deck then off to the beach to walk off all we had eaten and a moment to give Thanks & Praise for our blessings. The weather was perfect !

Perfect view!

  • 5 of 5

The home is very comfortable, roomy and clean. We had family come from Michigan and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Absolutely loved the house! Found the location to be perfect. The deck (both of them) very comfortable with plenty of seating for everyone. All the conveniences of home! Also, all the beds are VERY comfortable and the view is OUTSTANDING! We will rent again!
