About Jerry Bludau

Our names are Jerry and Kim. We live in the Houston, Galveston area. We built this house in 2010 with the idea of renting it out until are kids were out of college. We have 5 kids mostly adults and the beach is where we all reunite.

Jerry Bludau purchased this house in 2011

Why Jerry Bludau chose Texas Gulf Coast

As young parents we used to vacation with our parents and kids at crystal beach. We were finally able to build our own home in 2010.

What makes this house unique

The south deck is almost mesmerizing. I find myself just passing time looking and listening to the waves. At night you can see the lights of Galveston to the right and the lit up ships straight ahead.

Awesome place and easy to book!

  • 5 of 5

Best choice if you want a little bit of everything. Kitchen had everything to cook with, house fully furnished,great views, quiet area, huge tub in the master with jets plus a giant shower and hammock off the master on its own deck with amazing moonlit ocean views. Wish we'd had more time. Beach was at the end if the street. So about a min walk if that. parking permits are $10 for the year to drive on the beach came in handy at night for lights on thr beach. We all had a blast just playing in the water finding hermit much stuff to do without leaving. Great place Jerry. Wish we had brought the dog she would have loved it too

Wonderful family vacation...

  • 5 of 5

The house was very nice and comfortable...everyone had there own space. The location was so much better that I realized when was such a short walk to the beach and the views were fantastic. The kitchen was stocked with all the necessities and all appliances worked well. We had a great time...we'll be back for sure! Thanks for a memorable vacation.

Perfect stay with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and some of our friends stayed here for a weekend and it was perfect! Jerry was very quick to respond whenever I had questions and all amenities provided were perfect for our weekend getaway. My husband and I loved having the master bedroom upstairs with our balcony and the downstairs living room had plenty of room for an extra air mattress. We drove to the beach, but you could walk if you really wanted to. We really enjoyed sitting on the balcony to enjoy the view of the beach. Looking forward to returning in the future!

Great Beach House!!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay once again ! The Beachhouse is very roomy and has great deck views. Easy access to the beach and a close drive to get to the Big Store if something was forgotten. Jerry is very accommodating and we will be staying again !

Just a short free ferry ride away on Galveston Island there is Pleasure Pier Amusement Park, shopping, dining, The Strand Historical District. There is also a Huge Outlet mall south of Galveston about 30 miles from the house. For fabulous seafood the Stingaree is a must.
