Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 10

Kick back and enjoy Gulf views, glorious sunsets, and cool sea breezes in this beach retreat. This 3 bedroom, 2-1/2 bath is all about the beach, decorated in bright shades of coral, green, and turquoise, a pallette inspired by the sand and sea. Open living spaces, tall ceilings, large porch with rocking chairs translate into total relaxation. The house sleeps 8 to 10 and is stocked with modern amenities........a fully equipped kitchen, satellite TV, flat screen TVs in master bedroom and family room, surround sound system, DVD and IPOD player and wifi.

With the beach only a short walk or drive away, you can splash in the surf, go beach combing, surf fishing, or just chill under a beach umbrella. Our beaches are unique where you can drive up and down the beach. Golf carts are the favorite, and rental companies are available along the peninsula. Crystal Beach is a great Gulf Coast beach town that offers a variety of coastal activities and great fresh seafood eateries.

Galveston Island is a 20-minute ferry ride away where you can enjoy activities at Moody Gardens, the famous Pleasure Pier, and shopping at the historical Strand. You'll be sure to spot lots of dolphin on the ride over.

Whether you want to do some star-gazing, surf fishing, enjoying a bonfire at the beach, or just swinging in the hammock under the beach house while enjoying the cool evening breezes and the sounds of the ocean waves, Everything's Beachy has it all and is the get-away place for you.

SORRY, no pets.

This is a deed-restricted community; no campers are allowed. There are lots of RV Parks along the peninsula for overflow guests.

Our home is smoke free, but you may smoke outside.

About Ann Martin

My husband and I love the beach and were thrilled the day we built our new beach home. My favorite time of day is in the evening gazing at the stars on the huge deck, sipping a glass of wine and listening to the sound of waves. It can't get any better than this! We know you will enjoy our beach paradise as much as we do.

Ann Martin purchased this house in 2010

Why Ann Martin chose Texas Gulf Coast

Bolivar Peninsula, and Crystal Beach, is conveniently located close to Galveston by a 20-minute ferry ride. Unlike Galveston though, it is very laid back, 'a quaint little fishing town'. You can ride up and down the beaches either by vehicle, ATV, or golf cart. The stretch of beach on Bolivar is over 17 miles long. Families will set up 'camp' at the beach for the day with BBQ pits, horseshoes, washers, canopies, beach toys, and fishing poles. So while the kids are making sand castles, you can be catching evening dinner.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to drop you a short note and tell you what an AWESOME time my friends and I had...it was the most relaxing and enjoyable time that any of us could remember....we ate great food and walked on the beach ALOT...and I got to see my parents too. The home is just a comfy place to relax and the porch is an awesome place to just "let it all go" . We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay.



Thanks so much for opening your home to us! We hope to come back in October sometime!

One of the most relaxing comfortable vacation houses ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had a girls week at the beach and the house was the perfect place for us to stay. It was exactly as advertised. We were there over the July 4th weekend and we were treated to fireworks every night, and even a live band one night! The deck has comfortable seating for 8 and we spent all of our non-beach time there. Truly, I would wholeheartedly recommend this vacation rental to everyone.

Beautiful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderful, loved the neighborhood. Very friendly neighbor's & quiet.

The house is very comfortable and has everything you need, but a big plus for me was how clean everything was and the house smelled very pleasant when we first walked in.

My family and I spent most of our time downstairs cooking on the grill and drinking at the tiki bar.

We will most definitely be back.

Great location for birders!

  • 5 of 5

We were four birding friends from different locations who stayed at Everything's Beachy. This was an excellent spot because we were halfway between Bolivar Flats and High Island, two great birding destinations. The house is spacious, quiet, and nicely furnished with a beach theme. The kitchen had everything one would need to cook meals. It was very quiet and comfortable, and the deck was delightful in the early evening.

We also really learned the value of renting from the actual owner, rather than an agency. We all arrived at the Houston Airport from opposite coasts and were unaware of a storm in this area. Ann, the owner, texted, emailed, and phoned multiple times to let us know about changing road conditions. The road down the Bolivar Peninsula was closed due to high surf and we would have to go to Galveston and take the ferry over rather than go the other way through Winnie, which we had planned to do. She gave us updates and had contacted the ferry company also. Everything worked out well, but if she had not taken the time to let us know what was going on, we would have driven way out of our way, only to have to turn back. I feel that you would not get this kind of service from an management agency. Her help was much appreciated.

Cousins weekend

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice cabin in a great location with plenty of parking. The house is equipped with everything you need as far as pots, pans, coffee, and even sheets, which was nice not to have to pack. You only have to bring towels. The downstairs area is very nice, as well as the big deck up top. The owner is very responsive and helpful. We enjoyed it!
