Texas Gulf Coast House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 11-12)

Our beach house was built in 2011 and is located on the 3rd row of a double lot. We have a great view of the beach which is accessible by foot or vehicle. The house has 4 bedrooms and 3 baths with a great room and kitchen/dining as well as an outdoor bar. At each end of the house is a master bedroom with two additional bedrooms in the middle that share a jack n jill bath. The masters both have a queen size bed, while the middle rooms are equipped with custom made bunk beds (which has a much more spacious headroom than the typical bunk). One room contains 2 twin bunks and the other has a full on bottom and twin on top bunk.

We rent to families only - we are excited to share our beach home with other families that will appreciate and respect like we do.

Amenities include: A spacious deck with both covered areas as well as sun areas, fully equipped kitchen, Satelite TV, Free WiFi, gas grill and bed linens are provided; but you will need to bring your own towels.

Why Kathleen chose Texas Gulf Coast

We have spent our family vacations at Crystal Beach for years and finally realized our dream of having our own beach house! We have great memories from the beach and now are children are creating their memories.

What makes this house unique

Wake up to a beautiful view of the beach and enjoying a cup of coffee or breakfast on the deck. Our home is located in a tranquil neighborhood and just a short walk to the beach.

Our home is equipped with two master bedrooms.

Absolutely a beautiful house! Close to the water, a great view with an awesome deck to sit and soak in the sun and ocean air. This is the fourth time that my family has stayed in this house and we absolutely love it.

Relax is Right!

  • 5 of 5

This is the fourth summer that my friends and I have stayed in Galveston for a girls getaway and we decided to stay on Crystal Beach this trip. We made the right decision and staying at the Wenzel's home was perfect. The house is very spacious and you have a great view of the gulf and the wrap around deck gives you plenty of seating outside to relax. The beach is within walking distance and the neighborhood was quiet. There are several places to eat and we have eaten at Stingaree twice and it is always good. We spent one day in Galveston doing the usual things on the Strand and then spent the rest of our time at the house or the beach. We didn't even have to wait long on the ferry! Beautiful home and beautiful location and I would highly recommend this perfect spot on Crystal Beach.

Fantastic Beach house!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for a wonderful beach vacation! It's beautiful, well located very close to the beach, and BIG! The beds are all very comfortable and the kitchen is just right for those meals at home. The deck is huge and just wonderful to watch the sunset. I HIGHLY recommend this house and the owner is VERY nice and helpful!

Great property and views

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to "Relax" and our tenth Bolivar trip. We have rented many cabins, usually beach front. This house is exceptionally good value. I love the view, the privacy afforded all four bedrooms, and the well appointed kitchen. The beaches were the cleanest I have seen them, and "Steve's Landing" a great new eatery. I highly recommend this lovely vacation spot, and beach house.

Great stay with excellent view

  • 5 of 5

A group of 8 of us ( 4 couples ) stayed here for two night in mid October. The house was excellent and everything was provided except for bath towels which we knew in advance so that was not a problem. The view of the beach was excellent and we spent several hours just sitting out on the desk visiting and enjoying the view. The beach is very clean area and just a short walk from the house. We have all agreed we will come back and stay here again

2015 Family Vacation a Huge Success!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for extending your family home to our family. We had a wonderful time and are discussing next years trip! On the calm ocean days we saw Dolphins from the deck and ran down to the beach for a closer view. Everyone had tears in their eyes as our week came to an end. No seaweed and no mosquitoes made our trip even better. (Thanks for taking care of that for us. Ha). What a wonderful week with wonderful memories.
