Texas Gulf Coast House Rental Photos and Description

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.

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 had to email you and tell you what a wonderful time we had at your cabin. Thank you so much. You really have a great set up. We stayed downstairs every night until about 8.

We have vacationed every summer in Crystal beach until the storm hit and my husband's father lost his cabin in Holiday Beach addition and did not rebuild. We rent two cabins one for us and one for my husbands father. By far yours was the most welcoming and relaxed we have stayed at. You have won us over we will be returning every year.

This home was everything it said to be plus more. The home was very nice and accommodated all of our family of 10.The area below the house was perfect for afternoon and night gatherings. We truly enjoyed our stay and hope to be back. You dont need to bring any beach toys for sure. We really enjoyed the bathroom downstairs.

Awesome Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is out 4th year staying in this cabin and it gets better every year. We made friends with all the neighbors and they are very friendly. Plenty of sleeping room and downstairs is by far the BEST.....We loved the beach, water slide, golf and the Big Store. They have an awesome ice cream shop with everything you could want. We already booked this cabin for next year. Owners are the best.

Family vacation

This is a wonderful home and plenty of room for family. Especially loved the down stairs area where everyone could meet and enjoy social time. And I especially love the downs stairs bathroom.

Very nice and cozy

  • 5 of 5

The house was really nice and had lots of room. Really liked the nice walk in showers. Nice big sectional couch too. Great hang out place if you have a lot of people, nice patio bar with chairs. The only thing that would have been better is if it was right on the water. Had a little walk to the water but sitting out side you could hear the ocean which was very relaxing.

Over all I will defiantly stay again.

Beach Time

  • 5 of 5

My family and I needed a nice place to stay, just some wind down time. This was the perfect place. The owners have everything you need to enjoy the beach, even sand toys for the kids to use. There is an extra lot, so we had plenty of room for the kids to play and plenty of room for parking. It was the perfect vacation and perfect place. This was my first time using VRBO and not using a management company. It was very easy to use VRBO and deal directly with the owners. We plan on coming back in the summer to Everything's Beachy!
