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!!!

This place is great! This is our second year staying at Johnie Mac's, and I think we have found our new tradition. Great location to the beach. Peggy and Johnie are the best.

Great relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Johnie Mac's! The owners were very friendly and accommodating. This home was very clean and well stocked with towels, bed linens, and all you ever need in the kitchen. I especially liked the convenience of the grocery store and great places to eat.

We look forward to our next visit!

Wonderful weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with friends for a long weekend and loved the place. The open lots next door meant no neighboring structures on the beach side which gave a great breeze downstairs all day long - very comfortable to just sit and relax. We'd definitely stay here again!

Great vacation at Johnie Mac's!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great vacation at Johnie Mac's, our second year to stay there. Many thanks to Peggy and Johnie for their personal attention, friendliness and hospitality. The home was sparkling clean, well set-up, and comfortable. We had a short walk down the street straight to the beach. Whether we were taking a walk on the beach or spending part of our day there, the beach was clean and the water was warm - a great place to simply relax and get away. The view of the gulf from the deck of the house at sunrise and sunset was beautiful. Grocery shopping was convenient. We enjoyed grilling and had dinner at the Stingaree, which was delicious and fun as we watched barges go through the intracoastal waterway at sunset. We had such a wonderful time!

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.
