Crystal Beach House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom 2-1/2 Bathrooms (Sleeps 7)

At the bay... We live by the currents, plan by the tides, & follow the sun!!!

This beautiful canal front home in Laguna Harbor is very comfortable and relaxing! It is located on a culdesac with no through traffic. You can watch the ships go up and down the intracoastal waterway and see the dolphins swim in the canal! You don't have to go far to catch fish... just cast your line from the boardwalk directly behind the house! The beach is close by & so are all of the great restaurants on the peninsula. The house is very close to the Bolivar/Galveston ferry as well for easy access to tons of activities, historical sites, shops, entertainment & restaurants!

The interiors are wonderfully furnished by Baxter design of The Woodlands. Rustic architectural features, including wood floors, exposed rough cedar beams and shiplap ceilings, are a nice contrast to the clean design details. The 3rd floor is a large open room that includes the family room area, the breakfast area, the kitchen and a powder bathroom. A full kitchen with a long island bar is open to the family room & wet bar, this is perfect for cooking while you visit with your friends/family.

But... the best feature of this house is the nature at your doorstep! There are 4 porches with wonderful views of amazing sunrises over the canal waters and sunsets over the bay! There is an unobstructed view of Bolivar’s scenic natural reserve and the intracoastal waterway from both downstairs & the 2 upstairs decks. You can also enjoy the spectacular view of the starry clear night sky.

The Downstairs has an open air courtyard that often gets a nice breeze off the water. There is a charcoal grill in the courtyard & a table and chairs in the covered living area making these outdoor living spaces ideal for cooking out.

This is our home and we have equipped it with anything that we might want during our stay. We love it here and find it very peaceful and relaxing. We hope that you will do the same!

Awesome Time

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful home. There is not a TV in every room which is perfect for vacations and relaxation. The fishing and crabbing were awesome(bring your ant spray). Looking forward to booking in the fall!!!!

Great Little Vacation

We really enjoyed this 3-story rental house on the canal. The home was spacious and well-decorated. We will be back again when the weather is cooler.

Beautiful, quiet & relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We prefer the bay side of the beach and this will now be our number one choice! Beautiful home with plenty of space. We slept wonderfully on the comfy beds and that was huge for us. We also loved that the linens were provided which meant less we had to load up and bring. The owner and property manager were both very friendly and accommodating. I would recommend this cabin for anyone looking for a quiet peaceful vacation or a quick weekend get away.

Outstanding Home and even better fishing!!

  • 5 of 5

Cant think of anything else to say other than this place was AMAZING!! I dont even know if that would do it justice! My friends and I wanted to go to galveston for our annual fishing trip and this place far exceeded our expectations. The house was so nice that it made me weary because I didnt want to mess anything up. The elevator was a huge help in terms of carrying up groceries and supplies for the weekend and the decor of the house was immaculate. Now for the good stuff... The fishing on the back porch was absolutely amazing. We were catching non stop from sand trout, flounder, and saw other people in the morning even pulling slot reds. We caught so much we actually got bored of catching fish! This is usually blasphemous to say to fisherman but its true. The manager and owner always answered our questions whenever we needed their assistance and were more than helpful to say the least! This place is the best kept secret in the galveston area and I've rented numerous homes before! Will definitely be coming back... Was almost hesitant to write this review because I was afraid of the secret getting out but decided its the least i can do after the fabulous weekend. Thank you guys so much for the great memories.

This location is ideal for anyone seeking a relaxing retreat! The spectacular views at the peaceful waters edge make this bay house the perfect location for any escape. With fishing just behind the house and Galveston only a ferry ride away, you can enjoy the best of both worlds! Great local food and beaches are close by but the best part is right in the back yard! Historic Galveston boasts countless activities from golfing to shopping and so much in between. Crystal Beach and the Bolivar Peninsula are the best kept secret with great local hang outs and vast beaches.

There are a few attractions that you just cannot miss during your stay! These are listed in detail at the bay house.
