About L. Spirko

As a young girl I visited Crystal Beach & made a promise to myself I would one day live here. I made good on that promise several years back. I just love our beach, bay & everything it has to offer. Most of all I enjoy the friendliness of our local people & their carefree lifestyle.

Over the years we purchased several lots & a rental home. We recently sold our rental home, Bahama Breeze & are building the first of hopefully several homes FOR SALE at this time.

This home will be 2 bedroom, 2 bath WITH A FOREVER VIEW OF THE GULF


L. Spirko purchased this house in 2017

Why L. Spirko chose Texas Gulf Coast

The beach is much more secluded, wider at this end of the peninsula & much prettier with way less people.

What makes this house unique

Ocean Tide is much closer to the ferry for easier travel to Galveston. You can even see Galveston's buildings from our beach!

Another Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Bahama Breeze, It has the perfect set up for our family with 4 bedrooms and 2 baths. When you arrive at the house , it is so beautiful and has all the amenities you need. The downstairs has the porch swing, regular swing, hammocks, washer game and TV , a great place to hang out with the family with the breeze coming off the ocean. We had a great vacation with our kids and grandkids. Just a walk up the street to the beach, it was so much fun picking up shells and watching the kids play in the water. An Art teacher and her daughter were making sand art next to us, they were very good. They made a horse laying down the first day, then a shark coming out of the sand the next day, it was fascinating, they made it look so easy. We had the best time with lots of laughter and family fun. Bahama Breeze is the perfect location for our getaways, andso nice after a long day at the beach. Lydia is the perfect host, making sure we have a great stay. We Love this Place!!!

Renters beware! Be sure to take pictures of the house on your way out to make sure she doesn't cheat you out of your deposit! Make sure you put everything in the exact place (I put the crockpot to the right of the cabinet instead of the left and she said "everything" had to be reorganized) Nothing is up to date. For the price you can find somewhere better. There's cable but all the channels are repeats and not very good. The movie selection is also terrible. Yes, there are a lot of movies but not any that are good. The water that comes out of the fridge tastes nasty so bring bottle water! My 3 year old daughter and fiancé were sitting on her porch swing and it broke and they fell because the screws that went into the ceiling were completely rusted. I definitely suggest not to stay here. There are a lot of other houses that have great experiences. My other family rented a house 2 blocks down and loved their house and the home owner. Don't be discouraged, there are some good ones out there. Take your time looking and don't rush like I did!

Owner's Response: Ironically July 7, 2016 the exterior paint job was completed at Bahama Breeze including removal of swings & REPLACEMENT OF THE PORCH SWING CHAIN KIT & I have the receipts. These were the 1st guest after renovation! When we arrived, after guest called about swing, several persons NOT listed on rental including many preteens ran down the stairs & jumped into cars. Renter stated they were from another home in the addition & were unhappy with that cabin but were not staying the night. Of course we relocated swing downstairs immediately. We assume excessive weight and/or misuse of swing jerked a hole in the ceiling & the new hook out. Guests DID NOT checkout on time, exceeded occupants, left dried food on counters, table, chairs, sofas, floors, appliances & sinks. Toilets, tubs, & bathrooms were dirty & sandy. All bedspreads, linens & towels were wet & sandy thrown all over floors! The amazement continued finding random dirty pots, pans, skillets, glasses & dishes, toaster, coffee pot, mixer, crock pot & silverware placed in cabinets & drawers with food in them. Everything was washed in home to make sure! Twin & full mattress covers were torn. I purchased replacements before next guests arrival. Expenses way exceeded deposit! It took 2 persons cleaning NOON till 7PM! After 7 hours, BAHAMA BREEZE was finally as good as new, sanitized & ready for next guests. Thank goodness new guests were arriving the next day. We enjoy renting to GREAT GUESTS & have shared our home with many wonderful persons over the years that have made so many memories at Bahama Breeze as ALL other reviews reflect. We offer a Great home to Great Guests like you with the faith you will abide by the rental agreement & leave home as you found it!

We only stayed a few days as some friends of ours had a place less than one mile from this great house. The house is very clean and well maintained. The owner is very responsive and was great to work with... We hope to be back at some point in the future.

Beautiful, clean, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great stay in this house. The house is a lot better than what it looks on the picture. The kitchen area has a huge island and the owner has such a great taste decorating this lovely place. The downstairs covered area is very spacious and we spent a lot of time barbecuing, using the hammock and playing games while enjoying the breeze. The owner is very nice, communicates with you immediately and is available to help during your stay. The beach house is walking distance from the beach. I would definitely consider staying here again!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the great review! I am so glad your family enjoyed our home and made beautiful memories. Your son really touched my heart by leaving me a drawing of his favorite car not knowing I absolutely love cars. I wish to thank you for taking such good care of Bahama Breeze and invite your family to vacation with us again.

The house was immaculate and so much more than what we expected. The closeness of the beach was awesome. We will definitely be back to spend some quality time napping in the hammocks!!
