Vacation Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The accommodation's were great for our family. The owner was great to work with and she even had a nice gift when we arrived. I would recommend staying at this property for a wonderful vacation and beautiful beach. Great neighborhood and only a short walk to the beach.

Perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 families staying here, and we all agree this is our favorite stay so far. Having the bunk room (we used for 5 kids) was perfect to get them down and for the adults to be able to stay up and not worry to wake them.

Heat the pool when it's chilly is a major win!

Thanks for everything-

A wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Crystal Pearl! The house was spacious, well-supplied and comfortable with the added bonus of the pool and the guest house! It was perfect for our group of 13 --8 seniors and 5 Moms on spring break! We could walk to the beach and were close to whatever we wanted or needed. We loved the decks, the screened in porch in the back and the chairs poolside! It gave us lots of places to enjoy the beautiful outdoors, and then to watch movies in the evenings inside. The owner is kind, communicative and easy to communicate with!
