Crystal Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps Max 15)

Shalom 5 new construction completed 2007. Home address is 151 Ocean Shore, Bolivar Peninsula, Texas 77650. Here's a video of the property:

You will love it! My family and friends who have stayed here tell me the beach home is filled with peace. That is understandable since 'shalom' means peace! This is the perfect place for a getaway, vacation, honeymoon, family reunion or church retreat. The house is so cozy.

There is a mowed path through the dunes directly in front of the house for ease of access to the beach! Just a few feet to the sandy beach. The sand sparkling in the sunlight is why this place is called 'Crystal Beach'

When you walk up the stairs the first thing you will see is the spacious deck. There is plenty of furniture for your vacation pleasure. Some folks have used up their entire time enjoying the beach from the deck!! Part of the deck is covered. The afternoons on the deck are shaded. This part of the home that faces the beach is windows and glass doors galore. Whether in or out, the ocean view is breathtaking.

Once you enter, you will see the open concept living, dining and kitchen. We have a sectional in the living room in addition to a seating/sleeping bench underneath the windows.

This level also has a full size washer and dryer tucked underneath the stairs, a full bathroom and a kid friendly bedroom with two sets of bunk beds. One bunk is doubles the other is twins. So on this level you can sleep up to six in the bedroom and one in the living room.

Upstairs you will find 3 more bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The Master suite has a King size bed and a full size futon for your sitting pleasure OR extra sleeping for up to four in this room. Those traveling with a wee one will find a pack and play in the walk in closet. There is a garden tub and double sinks in the master.

There is another full size bathroom near the other two bedrooms. Each have a queen bed and a custom sleeping/sitting bench with a maximum sleeping capacity of three for each of those bedrooms. All three bedrooms have a private door leading to the upper deck. Here you will find gorgeous views and more furniture.

So you are looking at a MAXIMUM sleeping capacity of 10 upstairs and 7 down.

Keywords: A few steps from the house to the sand. Incredible beach views!~

Great Time With Family

  • 5 of 5

My family and I arrived July 25, 2016. We had 14 in our group. About half adults and half children. This was our 2nd time to visit Shalom 5 as a family. I have stayed at other properties in the past and have enjoyed Shalom 5 the most. The location is great and the area is peaceful. Upon arriving both times the house was in immaculate shape. Very spacious, neat and clean. Shalom 5 was fully furnished and although 14 in our group, we had plenty of dishes, towels, etc. As seen in the pictures Shalom 5 has a great view and is very close to the beach. We are definitely looking forward to coming back again soon.

Spring Break with Friends

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Shalom 5 on the 9th of March, 2016 Spring break.

The environment was serene, quite and safe; the lawn was well manicured. As we entered the house, we noticed its spacious living room with no visible dust noted. The widows were wide and clean where you can see the rolling waves outside; the two decks (lower and upper) were enough for 15 people and safe for the kids. The house was strategically located with an ideal distance to the beach. It was immaculate. Kitchen utensils were clean and the lighting was excellent. Beds and linens were prepared as we got in. We wish we could stay there longer.

Above all, the owner/manager was so nice and kind. You can reach her anytime by phone/email. I definitely will recommend Shalom 5 to my co-workers, relatives and friends.

Turkey Weekend!!!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and family had an awesome time at Shalom 5 this past Thanksgiving. Once we arrived we found an incredibly clean and open house.

As we all settled in, we started dinner and noticed there were plenty of pots, pans, plates, and silverware for all 14 of us. We felt like we're at home!!

We spent most of the time on the huge deck downstairs and enjoyed a great sunset and full moon at night.

At night the rooms were clean and very well stocked with extra blankets, pillows, and towels in the bathrooms. The dual A/C was a huge plus!!

Overall this was a great place to stay and will reccomend it to anyone who is interested. I forsee a week in the summer in the near future..

Thanks again!!

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

First we found the home in excellent condition as advertised.

The home is laid out perfectly for a large crowd with three bedrooms and two baths up with individual walkout to the second balcony from each room. This is a perfect spot to find a quiet time for yourself or a couple.

The second floor is very open and with my family it was the central gathering spot. From the cooks in the kitchen to the family room you are connected. The bedroom on this floor is private with access to it's own individual walk out balcony. There is also a 3rd full bath with it's own private entrance on this floor.

The large balcony on the second floor is perfect for views of a beautiful sunrise, the gulf and beach, lots of coffee, and conversation. Downstairs are three cement floored bays for parking with room for extended vehicles or two compact cars in each bay. A perfect spot for grilling or frying near the stairs for quick access up or down.

We were there with a large gathering and with rain and wind keeping us inside more than usual the home was still perfect for us. We loved it and I am certain you will too....

You may have a small campfire on the beach away from the dunes. You can drive your car or golf cart on the beach here. You may also shoot fireworks. That makes New Years Eve and the 4th of July super popular here!
