About Mike Taylor

We have owned property in Crystal Beach for over a decade. Prior to Hurricane Ike we owned three beach houses, Taylor's Treasure, Lazy Daze and At Ease. All three were total losses after the storm so we decided to purchase property in the Texas Hill Country but we missed the beach.

Mike Taylor purchased this house in 2012

Why Mike Taylor chose Crystal Beach

We missed the Beach but we weren’t sure we wanted to build from scratch so our realtor for over 10 years, Kelli Untermeyer with Beach or Bay Real Estate, found this hurricane Ike survivor with no damage from the storm. We added 800 square feet and made it a 2 story beach house. So we are 1600 sq. ft. inside and 1200 sq. ft. of decking with great ocean views with a short walk to a large family friendly beach.

What makes this house unique

We are blessed to have a home in the Texas hill country and the Texas gulf coast to enjoy with family and friends.

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at your beach house. We truly felt that your home is everything you said and then some. This is such a beautiful and cozy beach house. The home is not on the front row of the beach BUT that doesn’t matter as it has incredible views from 2 large decks and it is a quick one minute walk and you are on the beach. This is very convenient if you forget something you can just pop back to the house. The beach is very nice large family friendly area. The beach does allow driving but that was well organized and we didn’t have any issues. We enjoyed sitting on the deck listening to the waves. The home was very nice, well stocked with everything we needed in the kitchen and even had a nice big grill downstairs. We would definitely recommend this home, definitely looking forward to spending time there again!

Crystal Beach

The family oriented resort community of Crystal Beach, Texas is located along 27 miles of beach on the Bolivar Peninsula. Crystal Beach is a perfect place to visit, live, retire or get away! Soulful activities include walking, running, sunning, sailing, surfing, shelling, birding and just plain resting. With its small-town, quaint charm, the beach is relaxing and far away from the stress of 'Life in the City'. The local businesses and residents are friendly and will welcome you to the beach.

Crystal Beach is a family oriented beach community. Most popular as a resort destination in the summer, the mild gulf climate makes it comfortable all year round. Crystal Beach and neighboring towns offer all the vacation amenities one needs. Fresh seafood abounds, that you can cook at home or enjoy in one of the many restaurants. And should you tire of the beach, the golf course is excellent.

As a resort town, Crystal Beach sees an influx of visitors each summer. Families spend time on the beach, with children making friends that they see year after year during the summer holidays. Days are leisurely, unhurried and filled with southern hospitality. Year-round residents support the tourist industry and enjoy the quiet off-season months and mild weather when they have the town to themselves.
