About Peggy McDonald

Crystal Beach was our 'home away form home' for many years. We recently moved to the peninsula and Crystal Beach is now our permanent residence.

Peggy McDonald purchased this house in 2008

Why Peggy McDonald chose Texas Gulf Coast

While Galveston is just a ferry ride away, we like the peace and quiet of Crystal Beach. We enjoy watching beautiful sunrises and sunsets from the deck and stargazing at night. And of course, the beaches are fantastic.

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location!! Our cabin is just a short walk to the beach and close to anything and everything you may need, whether it's the gocery store, the shops and restaurants, the marina, or the water slide. It's all right there!!!

Best Deal on Crystal Beach

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to Johnie Mac's and it wonderful. Everything you need. Feels like home. Love the location even tho not right on the beach which I stayed on the beach one year in another rental and the weekend was very busy with traffic up & down the beach. At Johnie Mac's you don't hear all of that. But you can still feel the ocean breeze, see the water and smell the fresh ocean air. Will definitely go back as soon as I can! Owners are so sweet and always very helpful.

Won't stay anywhere else!!!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends & I have stayed at Johnny Macs twice & will be returning for a 3rd time in the fall. The place is always neat as a pin conveniently located. It's a very short walk to the beach and also a very short walk to the Stingaree. The owners are wonderful to deal with. Love me some Johnny Macs!

Johnie Macs on Crystal Beach A+!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Johnie Macs the week of July 4th. The cabin is very clean, and feels like home away from home. We enjoyed the stay very much and I'd recommend renting this cabin or their other cabin to all my friends and family.

We contacted the owners regarding their house on Rosa needed a house close to family and this house was perfect for our needs. It was very comfortable and clean and the owners are terrific people. Peggy allowed us to get settled right away and was very gracious.

Loved this cabin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week at Johnie Mac's Hangout and had the best time! The owners were beyond kind and helpful and we really appreciated the local information they gave us regarding fishing and restaurants. The cabin is very comfortable and clean. The kitchen was supplied better than mine at home. Due to the easy access to the beach, we were able to spend a great amount of time enjoying the sun and ocean. The covered porch made a great place for us to play dominos and cards while hearing the roar of the ocean waves. Can't wait to stay there again.

We loved it! My kids liked being out on the porch the most (besides being at the beach). It was the perfect spot for everything (close to the beach and stores). Thanks again for a fabulous week!!!
