About Kimberly Parker

Dana and Sarah are retired educators and are from Southeast Texas. They are Christians who enjoy family, friends and their church home. They love the beach and would like for others to enjoy their cozy cottage in Crystal Beach as well!

Kimberly Parker purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Kimberly Parker chose Texas Gulf Coast

Its a great location! 4th Row from the water but no houses on the first two rows so there's still an ocean view and a short 2 minute walk to the beach from the bottom step!

What makes this cottage unique

Our cottage is $200 per day, no matter what season it is.

There will always be an additional $50 charge on every holiday.

My favorite beach cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This is my 2nd stay at this sweet, beautiful beach cottage. I have family that have also used the same cottage and they love it. Why do we keep coming back? It's a 2-3 minute walk to the beach. Plenty of chairs and beach toys in the garage to use so less to pack. Cool wagon to pull your gear to the beach easily. Fully equipped kitchen. Having cleaning supplies on hand is a big plus. Beautifully decorated with a nice cold a/c. Plenty of room to spread out and great deck furniture! I can still see and hear the waves just fine in this nice, quiet neighborhood. We will be back!

Beautiful House 2 Blocks from the Gulf

  • 5 of 5

Perfect house for a small family to spend by the ocean. Big living area and kitchen with all the necessary items to cook. Big porch perfect for watching the sunrise and enjoying cocktails in the evening. Definitely recommend to anyone interested in a relaxing vacation on a budget.

Great accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

The stay was phenomenal , the cabin was as expected, impeccable! The cabin is just the distance from some very good eating establishments, and the addition is very well kept! We "will be" renting again!

Best time/option ever

  • 5 of 5

This was a first time for me to rent a house for my kids their friends and I and it was the smartest option that I could find being so close to the beach. The house was lovely and well maintained (and I should know because I am in the Remodeling Business) Everything that we could of asked for was there and we wanted for nothing. The beach within walking distant, WiFi to keep my kids happy, plenty of room and the bed was better than mine at home which made my back feel great! We had all meals on site which was a treat not that we planned it that way but definitely worked to our advantage so the kids could spend more time on the beach. If and when I do this again Serenity Cottage will be the first place I look at to make a stay and I can only hope it is available when we do. Thanks for letting us stay at your house. Bruce Jackson

Cozy Cabin by The Gulf

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is in a very nice spot, minutes from the gulf. You can easily see and hear the waves from the upper porch. The inside is nicely furnished and nails the "ocean" theme very well. Everything was very clean inside and out, everything looked very well maintained. Really nothing to complain about, our stay was filled with family fun. The super market with everything you will need food/beverage wise is just a couple minutes drive away. Kimberly was a tremendous help and made the overall trip that much better with detailed instructions of how to get in and what was available for us to use on the beach. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing time. We look forward to coming back later this year hopefully.
