About Brandi at ReMax on the Water - Crystal Beach

We purchased this lovely home for us to have a place to relax and enjoy in the US when we were living out of the country. We have recently moved back to Houston and are thrilled to be able to enjoy relaxing time here as a family. We hope you enjoy our house as much as we do!

Brandi at ReMax on the Water - Crystal Beach purchased this house in 2012

Why Brandi at ReMax on the Water - Crystal Beach chose Texas Gulf Coast

This is the beach that I grew up going to and it is close to where our families live. We were excited to find a house in this subdivision where lots of our friends have cabins. The beach is a short walk away. Lots of restaurants are close and we can go into Galveston for the day to shop and explore. We love this location!

What makes this house unique

This is a beautiful, well kept home in a quieter neighborhood. Enjoy some days on the beach either sunning, fishing, building sandcastles or just watching the tide roll in. Then, you can drive in to Galveston and have fun being a tourist!

When we got to town to check in, the lady at ReMax let me know we'd love the property. Boy, did we! The property was clean and beautiful. The yard was well maintained, and the deck/porch area under the house is awesome! This small house has the best use of space I've ever had in a vacation rental, and we've been renting houses for vacation multiple times a year for a decade. There's a short walk to the beach which you'd think would deter from those wanting that "beachfront" experience, but for a family with younger children (ages 13,8,and 4 at the time) that 75 feet of distance is welcome when you're doing family activities and the beach is full (or even more at night when you and the fam are outside catching the ocean sounds and breeze and you don't have to see the random college kids on the beach). I think for a family, this is a perfect rental; if it wasn't a shame we'd go back this year. They provide menus and a list of resturants-really just an all around great location. Love, Love, LOVED it!
