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!!!

Great rental/Great owners

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week and the place was perfect for our family. Close to the beach, but in a quiet area. We enjoyed sitting on the deck and just relaxing. The owners are quick to respond and just super nice people. I can't wait to come back next year!

Great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

First time to stay at Johnie Mac's. It is very clean and has everything you could possibly need. Very convenient to beach, grocery store, restaurants, and fishing. Very friendly folks. Johnie came by the day I arrived and we had a nice chat. I thought he would divulge the location of his secret flounder hole but no luck. God willing and the creeks don't rise I will be back next year.

Stay #2 so far!!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cabin in 2015, had a great time, so we decided to do it again. The owner's are very nice and professional. The cabin is clean and well stocked. Just a short distance from the beach. Convenient to the local grocery store, and restaurants. Would definitely recommend to friends.

My husband and I rented this house for the weekend, while attending a wedding. The location was great! The house was great... just what we were looking for. We would definitely stay here again.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay, and definitely want to come back. The house is nice and well maintained. The gulf is visible from the deck, and the beach is close enough for two 80+ year-olds to walk to it. We couldn't ask for nicer accommodating hosts than Johnie and Peggy McDonald. My wife and I, along with our dog, Dixie, enjoyed our stay at Crystal Beach.

Second Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Johnie Mac's; for good reason. The home is exceptionally clean, with equally exceptional owners. They are friendly and available, but not intrusive. The home is in a quiet neighborhood, convenient walk to beach, and has a well stocked kitchen. Looking forward to another stay.
