About Leanne Sutton

As high school sweethearts at Deer Park High School in the late 60's we always loved saltwater! So even tho we moved to East Texas in the 70's, we never lost our love for saltwater fishing, crabbing and combing the beach. Now retired, we spend most of our time in Crystal Beach as our son and his family live there as well, so we get to be involved with them!

Crystal Beach is a small community with a big heart, the folks here are just really nice! Seems there is always something going on, but yet it's quiet and relaxing, perfect scenario!

When we decided to build The Spoonbill (one of my favorite birds), we wanted a cool beach atmosphere with a little cottage eclectic it turned out, we love it! It's our hopes that others will come spend some time here to enjoy our home and community. Beware...just smelling the salt air is contagious that makes you want to keep coming back!

Leanne Sutton purchased this house in 2013

Our family recently had a great weekend trip to The Spoonbill. Kids really enjoyed romping in the surf and building sand castles. Male adults had great results fishing. We will return.

Beautiful home with the perfect deck!

  • 5 of 5

There is absolutely nothing negative to say about this home. It's a beautiful place and it's in a great location. The decor, accommodations and ammenities are perfect. The deck is excellent, we would have loved to have more time to enjoy it. The house and deck area were very clean upon arrival. The owners are great people who are very easy to work with and accommodating. We have rented many homes through VRBO and this one is by far the best. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us!

What a wonderful week-end!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for renting your beautiful cabin to us for my 40th birthday celebration. The decorations are perfect! You can tell you spent a lot of time making sure everything was just right! The downstairs deck area was amazing! We spent most of our time there and it was perfect! It was a close walk down to the beach, beds were comfortable and all the little extras were great!

Thank you so much! We look forward to hopefully returning someday!

Crystal Beach
Car: recommended

Located in the 'Heart of Crystal Beach' where you can enjoy a stroll to the beach with direct access 300' away, no vehicle necessary. The beach is the main attraction where we like to 'treasure' hunt, make sand castles and relaxing. Fishing is a passion for us, whether in the surf or bay. While bay fishing requires a boat, there are numerous fishing guides in the area.

A favorite pass time, crabbing! It's fun for all ages and great to eat!

Here we are surrounded by National Wildlife Refuges so put birding at the top of your list of must-do!
