Great Beach House

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay on Crystal Beach. The house was bright and very inviting. Everything was clean well maintained. Access to the beach was very easy, not too far to walk or if you were taking a lot with you the drive was just down the street. We really enjoyed the upper deck and most of the time there was a breeze. We would certainly stay here again. The kids loved the upper loft bed and took turns on who got to climb the ladder to go to bed.

Thanks for a wonderful beach vacation.

Wonderful beach house!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this beach house. As before, we enjoyed our stay very much! The house is adorable and very nice. The large deck is wonderful and it's so close to the water! The owners of this beach house are very nice and easy to work with. They are very accommodating and the house is well taken care of. We definitely plan to stay here again in the future.
