Thank you for viewing Kay Caye! Tremendous BEACH and OCEAN VIEW...3rd row from the expansive beach. This home is located in the desirable Holiday Beach subdivision, which is close to the Gulf Coast Market 'Big Store' for convenient shopping!

Guests will need to provide their own towels and bed sheets.

You can listen to the waves, view the amazing stars, and want to come back for more!

Sleeps 10: 2 Queen Beds, 2 Twin Bunk Beds, and a double 'click clack' sleeper.

Kay Caye is a wonderful beach getaway with unequal views of the Gulf of Mexico, a large covered deck for socializing outside, huge space under the house to enjoy the shade and grill, and have a refreshing outdoor shower - a big hit with beachgoers! The sizeable kitchen has all you will need for hosting your vacation in style. Downstairs you will appreciate covered parking, a handy sand shower, and a charcoal grill.

Crystal Beach is a 15-minute ferry ride to Galveston, TX, which offers every available amenity, to include theaters, shopping, amusement and swim parks, Moody Gardens, the Strand, and other historical adventures like the Grand 1894 Opera House, the Bishop's Palace, and the Moody Mansion. Three cruise ship lines (Carnival, Royal Caribbean, and Disney) operate from Galveston, allowing you to extend your cruise vacation with a stay at the beach. Birding is also a major attraction, check out several of the National Wildlife Refuges in the area through the Texas Parks and Wildlife website.

About Dawn Bloomer

As newlyweds, Dawn and I are raising her wonderful son here in Houston. I am a corporate environmental engineer and Dawn is an Administrator for a pediatric home health care company. I have lived in Texas since 1987. We have a lot of family here and we all love going to Crystal Beach. When the house is rented and we are not using it; we enjoy going to baseball games, shopping, and planning the next getaway vacation for the year. We hope you love your time in Crystal Beach as much as we do.

Dawn Bloomer purchased this house in 2010

Why Dawn Bloomer chose Texas Gulf Coast

I helped Dawn finish construction of Luna Bella, then Hurricane Ike heavily damaged the home and we had to go through the building process all over again. After this project, I wanted to be able to help Bring Bolivar Back. So, I bought a lot and built Kay Caye. Its floor plan is similar to Luna Bella's, so we now have the choice of two homes to enjoy in Crystal Beach - IF they're not rented. Kay Caye is close to the GCM Big Store, so it's very convenient in case you need anything from the grocery/hardware store.

What makes this house unique

Shelling, beach walks, family time, cooking, and entertaining friends/neighbors are a few of the pleasures.

Guestbook comments from the manager

First time our family rented a beach house and we had such a wonderful time. Such a cute house - thanks for sharing this with us! Great weather and we cooked crab. Very delicious.

Beautiful Ocean Views

  • 3 of 5

Overall it is a very nice house with beautiful views but need better property maintenance, no hot water during my week there, the outside shower have the water handles broken ,some of the refrigerator shelves were broken and the vacuum cleaner was very hard to work on the carpets.

Master bedroom and one of the living room blinds were broken .

Great home away from home

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our short stay at Kay Caye. Our only regret was that we didn't book it for an entire week. They had a fully stocked kitchen and lots of games/toys for our little ones to enjoy. This beach house is perfectly located near the beach and within walking distance to the shore. We definitely plan to book again in the future.
