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.

Loved the house and location!

  • 4 of 5

The house was clean and comfortable. The view and proximity to the beach were great. Only complaints:

1.REALLY needs a working icemaker.

2. Towels really need to be replaced.

3. Sheets need to be placed on top of bed they go to. Digging through a tub of towels and bedding is sure not the way I want to start a vacation. : /

Great location just 2 blocks from the beach.

  • 3 of 5

Ocean View is a solid house. It is too close to the neighbors. You feel like you are sharing the decks. Yard is lacking. No outlet downstairs if you plan to use anything that requires power.

Decor is pretty non-existent. Kitchen adequate. Not enough pot holders or serving pieces. Refrigerator was falling apart. Design of freezer terrible. Ice goes everywhere when you pull out the shelf. Pillows and linens provided pretty shabby. We had a great time but for my money $3,000+ for six days was too high.

Also downstairs water hose would not connect to faucet. Outdoor shower is a shower head with no surround.....just attached to a post.

Owner's Response: Sorry our guest was unhappy with the value. The 4th of July is the busiest and most expensive weekend. After learning of what a horrible experience our guest had the previous year, I made a pre arrival inspection at which time the hose and refrigerator where fine. The refrigerator and hose where repaired after guest departure. These are big houses built in small lots.

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 crabs..so much stuff to do without leaving. Great place Jerry. Wish we had brought the dog she would have loved it too

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.
