Crystal Beach Cabin Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12

Street's Retreat is a beautiful beach side cottage with great views and all the conveniences of a modern home!

If you are looking for a beach cabin where everyone has their own space, this is the place. With 4 bedrooms and 4 baths, this is one of the only rental cabins where every bedroom has it's own bathroom! There are two bedrooms downstairs (on the main floor) and two bedrooms upstairs. Three bedrooms have queen size beds (All have been replaced as of 11/14) and one bedroom has a full size bed. The smallest bedroom downstairs shares it's bathroom with the hall in order for your guests to have access as well. One bedroom upstairs also has two additional full size built-in bunk beds! All bedrooms have their own cable TV for those late night movies or when the kids want to plug in their PlayStation/Xbox's!

The house has its own dedicated WiFi signal just in case you need to send that last email or need to get on the internet.

You can wash the sand out of your bathing suits in the stackable washer/dryer so that you don't go home with any dirty laundry. Did I mention when you get back from the sandy beach that you can just rinse off in our enclosed downstairs sand shower!!! If you aren't too sandy then just rinse your feet off with the foot sprayer at the bottom of the stairs!

Everyone will feel like part of the action in the fully furnished kitchen that opens into the great/family room with it's 20ft. ceilings! The couch and loveseat is just the place to catch a nap or watch a little television. You'll also notice the dining room table is a beautiful custom table made from reclaimed wood that was from historical homes destroyed during Hurricane IKE in 2008.

After dinner you'll want to go for a leisurely walk to look for sea shells down the beach while the sun sets or just hang out on the deck in a lounge chair and listen to the waves take all the stress away!!

Wherever or whatever you decide to do at Street's Retreat you will not go wrong. Remember, your on vacation.....relax and enjoy!!!!

About Jenny Overstreet

My wife and I grew up about an hour from Crystal Beach and each of us have our own fond memories of being on the beach while growing up in this area. After having three wonderful kids, we knew we wanted to get a beach house so that they could make their own great memories with their friends and family. We always feel relaxed and are able to shed the stress away from whatever is going on with our jobs, etc. Even though the city is just a short drive away, we always feel like we are on an island!!

Jenny Overstreet purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Jenny Overstreet chose Texas Gulf Coast

Our family had bought this as an investment in 2005. After having the property for just a short period, we realized that we loved the area so much that we just couldn't sale it and decided to keep it for ourselves. We did a complete remodel in 2007 only to have Hurricane IKE completely level the house in 2008 after the house had stood for 51 years! We didn't think twice about rebuilding because of all the great times and many memories that we have down at the beach.

What makes this cabin unique

The location of this house in such a family-friendly area and the incredible views make this house one of the best in Crystal Beach. Having 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms makes it very nice for older kids, other couples, or even other families that are vacationing together! Having the clean, vacant lot in front of our house is a huge plus for the kids or just so that you are guaranteed a great view of the beach forever!

Amazing property

  • 4 of 5

I really love coming to this house! We book it every year. It is so well decorated and cheery. It really feels like a vacation. I did not give it 5 stars this year because the house was not as clean as it has been in the past. I did let the owner know this and she immediately responded. We were very careful to follow the rules of no sand, but the previous renters did not and sand was all over the floor. There were cob webs around the house too. We will still go back and would not ever want to stay anywhere else but wish the cleaning was as good as last year! I am sure the owner will make this correction as they are very attentive. Thanks

We appreciate you continuing to choose "Street's Retreat" and we will always do our very best to make sure that everyone is truly satisfied upon their arrival.

Beautiful Cabin! Best View!! Best Beach area!!!

  • 5 of 5

Street's Retreat was a perfect destination for a girlfriend get-away. The beach was only steps from the door. This cabin is made for privacy and gathering. The bathroom for each room is a real plus. It was a pleasure dealing with the owner of Street's Retreat and we will, for sure, be back!!!

Wonderful house!

  • 4 of 5

Our family rented Street's Retreat over Spring Break and we couldn't have been happier! The pictures don't do it justice as it is even better than the photos depict which is refreshing. The house is clean, comfortable and pretty, and the four bathrooms were a lifesaver when you have several teenage girls! The neighborhood is quiet and even though it is very close to beach access it had very little traffic which was nice. I'm saving the best for last....the view. It's fantastic. This is what makes it a hidden gem in my opinion. We definitely have this house saved as a favorite and will rent it again in the future. The only thing that was slightly problematic was all of the sheets! You have to supply your own linens (which I've never had to do before) so that meant numerous beds (6) to make up upon arrival and tons of sheets to wash when you get home. Not so much fun and it's the only reason I didn't rate it 5-star. However, that being said, we would do it again in a minute!

Owner's Response: Update!!! We try and always listen and take all suggestions to heart. We are now offering a linen service for your sheets and pillowcases. For only $10/bed or $50 for all 6 beds, we will have the beds ready for your arrival and we will take care of them upon your departure. Just email us and we will have this taken care of for you. I hope this helps eliminate any stress that might have been endured regarding the linens. Thank you so much for your response. We are so glad that you all enjoyed yourselves. Regarding the linen situation, we have tried to provide linens in the past and they seem to accidentally get packed up and leave with the renters. As you know, one of the uniques qualities of Crystal Beach is that there are no large stores, such as, Walmart. So, it would be impossible for us to get to Galveston to replace the linens and have the home ready for the next renters. It is very important to us that the home is clean and ready when you arrive. I truly apologize for this inconvenience but, that is why we let everyone know up front that we can't provide linens. Again, I am sorry you felt inconvenienced and we truly appreciate you choosing "Street's Retreat."
