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!!! WiFI will be available beginning April 2017!!!!

Amazing time!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect! The house has a view of the water, which is hard to find at this price point. Coordination with Peggy is easy and she is super helpful. The house was a good size for two couples but would do for small families or a bunch of friends! The house is stocked with everything you need, and the store is nearby for food supplies. This is located on the quieter side of Crystal beach- so you'll still be able to find a spot on the beach! I would stay again!!

This was our first trip to the Bolivar Peninsula and we thoroughly enjoyed staying at Johnie Mac's. The house was very nice, very clean, and well stocked. The owner was delightful to talk to and work with while completing the preparations for our stay. The location was great, just up the street from the gulf. The Crystal Beach area was very nice, quiet and not commercialized like many other beach communities we've visited. I definitely plan to return to this area, and this house in the future.

Great house and location!

  • 5 of 5

First time renting Johnie Macs, and will definitely be back. The house was clean, comfortable,roomy and within walking distance to the beach. We were close enough to Galveston but enjoyed the seclusion of Crystal Beach. You can see the ocean from the deck. The owners are great and very easy to work with. In spite of the weather, we had a great time and I would highly recommend this rental to anyone!

Perfect Rental

  • 5 of 5

We visit the Peninsula several times a year and have stayed at several rentals throughout the area. We have stayed at both Johnie Mac's and Peggy Mac's and neither disappointed. Both Rentals are well equipped, well maintained and very clean. Owners have made the process of renting easy and stress free, will always consider these two properties when visiting the Peninsula.

Clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Johnie Mac's

Owners are very nice people and the house has everything you need to relax. It was very clean and the kitchen has everything you need.

They have another beach house called Peggy Mac's and I bet it's just as nice. We will be renting again. 🙂

Can't wait to go back.

  • 5 of 5

Amazing amazing amazing location. Gorgeous xl deck with beautiful views of the gulf. Everything was there for me to just run and grab some fresh ingredients and gulf shrimp for homemade gumbo to eat while outside listening to waves. We are already planning our next trip!! The renter was extremely easy to communicate with and the home was clean. 👍🏻🙂
