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 Crystal Beach

While Galveston is just a free 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 is available.

                                                              My family and I stayed at Johnie Macs and had a wonderful time! The owners are so friendly and accommodating. Everything was very self explanatory and we appreciated the detailed instructions on how to work the electronics and what to do upon checkout. My sister thought Peggy’s notes around the house were precious! We will definitely be back to stay at Johnie Macs! :)

                                                              Just Terrific!

                                                              Even better in person - really the photo's do not do this little gem justice. Super cute decor and easy beach access. It had everything that our little group needed. One of the best parts was the open lines of communication with both Peggy and Johnny. The little notes were extremely handy. They didn't leave us with any questions except - "How soon can we come back!

                                                              great place

                                                              Great place. Definitely a home away from home. Well maintained, with all you need for a great stay. Minutes from the drive on beach.

                                                              Excellent Vacation Rental!

                                                              We loved our experience with this property so much that we can't possibly find the words to adequately describe all the amenities! It was an easy walk to the beach, and we could see and hear the ocean while sipping tea on the well-equipped deck. The house was clean, attractive and comfortable with free Wi-Fi, dominoes, cards, etc. The kitchen was well-stocked with everything anyone would need for their home away from home. Johnie and Peggy were very friendly, gracious and accommodating--the perfect hosts! We enjoyed dining at the Ocean Grille Restaurant, and The Big Store had about everything imaginable such as food, gifts, hardware, etc. We enjoyed the ferry ride over to Galveston where we took in the sights and shopped at Walmart. This rental property gets 5 stars PLUS!!

                                                              Wow! Clean and spacious

                                                              Right when we walked in all the reviews came true. Very clean, walking distance to the beach and cozy. Great communication from Peggy throughout our stay.

                                                              Convenience is the key to this beach rental!!
