Overview

Crystal Beach House Rental Photos and Description

3/2 beach home on 2nd row. WEEKLY RENTALS ONLY DURING SUMMER MONTHS

Our family has been vacationing in Crystal Beach since the 1960's. We lost our beach house to Hurricane Ike, but we were fortunate enough to have insurance and our new house is ready for you to enjoy. Ours is an open floor plan with 1335 square feet, three bedrooms, a sleeper sofa, and Wifi.

Kids will love playing in the ocean, making sandcastles, and collecting shells. Adults will love the expansive view of the Gulf of Mexico and the easy access to the beach.

The Master Suite is decorated in soothing colors with a palm tree theme. It has a king size bed, an oversized tub, and a separate entrance to the porch for sneaking out with that first cup of coffee to watch the sun come up over the ocean. The second bedroom has a plush queen bed, a great view of the beach, and is decorated in cool tropical shades. The 3rd bedroom has two antique twin beds and is decorated in a cat theme.

The fully stocked kitchen is open to the dining room, which is furnished with large, comfortable furniture and decorated in a tropical theme, perfect for lingering over family mealtime.

Enjoy a great night's sleep in the 3 private bedrooms, all of which have a reading light, extra pillows, a clock, and a fan.

We have crabbing gear and plenty of beach chairs and toys available for your use.

We make every effort to have the basics for you upon arrival: toilet paper, coffee filters, basic spices, etc. Nothing worse than driving for hours and having to go to the store before heading to the beach! Linens are not provided so bring sheets, bath towels and beach towels.

For larger groups, our cousin owns Cabana Che which is a block away and sleeps 8 (listing #338543)

Why The Owner chose Texas Gulf Coast

We love Crystal Beach for too many reasons to name! Galveston is just a fun ferry ride away and has everything you might want for your entertainment on a vacation, but if you just want to get away from it all, you don't need to leave the Bolivar Peninsula. The Big Store has everything you might need; there are local fisherman to buy fresh seafood from, and great restaurants too!

From early morning walks at sunrise until cocktail hour on the shady front porch, we relax and enjoy the constant ocean breezes, the smell of the salt air, and the sound of the waves crashing on the shore. Thanksgiving is a particularly special time for us to convene in Crystal Beach, but we love it at all times of year and think you will too.

What makes this house unique

Our house is in the 'Noisy Waves' sub-division, which is a family-friendly area between Emerald II and Holiday Beach, about 1 mile west of the Big Store and 11 miles east of the ferry landing.

Beautiful Home with Amazing View

  • 5 of 5

Stones Throw was beyond our expectations. We had an amazing view to the beach from our balcony. This property was amazing, clean, and it felt like we were home. Lisa was very helpful and answered when we had questions. I will stay here again!

PERFECT SIZE!!

  • 5 of 5

Stone's Throw was the perfect size for our group of 4 adults. The beds were very comfy and the kitchen was well equipped for our needs. We girls loved the beach décor and the guys loved the big TV for football. Very relaxing and accommodating. Everything was as stated yet much roomier than pictured. Very clean. Very comfortable. Very close to the beach...just a stone's throw away! Lisa made the booking very easy and was available if needed. We will be back.

Great Place!!

  • 5 of 5

First time visiting Crystal Beach but this was a great place to stay!! View from the deck was very nice and so was the beach house. Plenty of room for the family to roam inside and outside. We brought our 2 year old and he had a lot of fun, the gate at the top entry of the deck was very useful to keep him from sneaking away! The convenience of accessing the beach as well as The Big Store was great! We also visited Stingaree restaurant which has great food and live entertainment. We will definitely rent here again! Thank You Lisa....we had a great time!!

Relaxing!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay at "Stone's Throw" was both relaxing and accomodating. The house had all the promised amenitites, and was very warm and welcoming. The beds were comfortable, and the house was roomier than the pictures showed. My grandchildren loved the outdoor shower and the close walk to the beach. The owner made herself available if the need arose, and the moonlight view from the porch was sensational. Great place to get away to!

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time! The beach house is very comfortable, roomy and pretty. Everything that we expected was provided and we had no problems with the house or communicating with the owner. The location of the house is great! It's close enough to the water to be able to sit on the deck and see the water and you can just walk a few feet and be on the beach. We also had a lot of fun riding around in the golf cart that we rented from the place right at the end of the street that this house is on. We would definitely recommend Stone's Throw to our friends and family who are looking for a relaxing and fun weekend at Crystal Beach.
