About Amaris Wendelburg

My husband and I purchased this home as both a get-away for ourselves, and a place to share with guests. We take great pride in this home and have put a lot of work into it. We are from the Houston area and frequent the Island a lot. We have a little girl born in October of 2012, and she already loves the beach!

We married in Barbados, so when you come to our home you will notice a mural of the Crane Beach. It was done by an artist from Austin, and we couldn't be more proud of our little treasure!

Why Amaris Wendelburg chose Texas Gulf Coast

We chose to buy this home because of its unique living space. As frequent travelers to the beaches of Galveston, we spend most of the time on the beach, and the rest lounging around and watching TV. This home just has that comfy feel to it. We also loved the deck that goes all the way around the property. Plus, we have a great view right outside our front doors.

What makes this house unique

Our favorite thing to do is relax on the deck. That's why we provided plenty of seating. Sometimes we even see dolphins from there!

Huge family room

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and huge. The open kitchen and living area are great. There were 9 of us and plenty of room for everyone. The beds are very comfortable. You can certainly tell the owners put a lot of thought and care into this house. The only thing I would like to see added to house is an outdoor shower. Less messy with the sand and grandkids. The beach is just a few steps down the road (or bring or rent a golf cart) The beach is never crowded and was very clean. Also added bonus, no mosquitoes while we were there. We had a great time and will stay here again.

This beach house was GREAT! It was a great deal bigger in person, photos don't do it justice.

  • 5 of 5

The house it self was very roomy and spacious. The open concept was key, allowing our family to have total interaction! Very comfy and relaxing as well. Loved the huge dinning table, the comfy beds, and took full advantage of the washer dryer! The wrap around deck was great! Only a short walk to the beach made for great beach time! Brought our own pit, although one was provided... we just love to bbque and needed something bigger. The under deck area was great as well, we had an awesome summer bbque and great family time there. Plenty of room for parking... we had 4 vehicles with room for more! The views from deck were awesome!! Mornings and evenings were especially nice. Only couple of lil cliches... the AC was not working at full capacity upon our arrival, but Mr Wendelburg promptly relieved us with fans the next morning....and we were cool as cucumbers throughout the stay. Although the kitchen was fully stocked, the number of bigger pots and pans were limited. If your not into cooking as much, then shouldn't be a problem. We are, but we improvised with what was there and managed nicely. There also is a small store just outside the subdivision entrance which had a lil bit of everything in case you forgot anything. Neighbors were nice and welcoming. We enjoyed our stay very much!! Will definitely rent again!! Thank you Mr Wendelburg!!

Super family friendly property with all the essentials!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in the Crane Beach House and it definitely won't be our last. We loved everything about the house. The beds were comfortable, house was very nice, and was equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. We stayed for 5 nights and don't want to go home at all. The house is exactly as described and very beautiful. The beach was also beautiful and very clean. It is also not a very busy beach at all. The water was clear with no seaweed and my kids enjoyed boogie boarding on the waves. We will for sure be returning to this house and we loved everything about it!!!

Another Great stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at your home again. The location is fantastic, the view is great. The listing is exactly as stated. The only thing that could have made it 5 stars and a incredible time is the house could use a few more larger bowls. It was difficult to make some meals without some bigger bowls that could go into the microwave, but other than that it was great!! We look forward to staying again in the future. The owner's are great to work with and respond quickly if there is a need to reach them. I would highly recommend this home to anyone wanting to get away, be footsteps from the beach and away for the hustle and bustle of Galveston, but still close enough if you need something or want some nightlife.

Wonderful House on Quiet Beach

  • 5 of 5

We go to Galveston every year and this was the best experience we have had. The house is very nice and Amaris was very accommodating. The beach is very close by and the ocean is easily seen and heard from the deck. The beach in front of the house does not have sand but it's just a short walk to the west. The house does have internet but it is extremely slow. This would have been nice to know because two people in my party needed to work one day we were there and were unable to because the internet was unreliable. It was definitely not the end of the world as we were on vacation and really didn't need the Internet, but it would have been nice to know ahead of time so people could have made other arrangements to work. The only other comment I have is that the house is certainly not steady and you can feel it sway whenever anyone walks in the house. This caught us off guard at first and was was a little unnerving but we then got over it. We've stayed in many raised pier and beam beach houses before and have never felt the house sway like that. Other than the Internet and the swaying, this house and location is wonderful. There were many times we didn't feel like we were on a Texas beach! I definitely recommend this house and look forward to our return trip.

Great getaway home

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely and nice touches through out. Loved the hand painted mural, the electric fireplace, nice TV's and service was great - dish & internet were no problems and even worked well through the storm and blip of power. Beds we're comfy and the house was well stocked for us, plenty of kitchen supplies. Nice dishwasher and washing machine / dryer. Our stay was during the flood of HOU 4/2016 and were concerned on heading home running into it and getting stranded. The owners were very understanding and let us have some leeway on check out time. I will book this house again and hopefully next time get to enjoy the beach. Also, there is a little fishing pier on the inlet across the way with a little bait shop on the corner.

Car: necessary

The Crane Beach House is located in a quiet subdivision about 20 miles from Gavleston. The beaches are excellent and the water much more blue/green than what you'll find in Galveston. Fishing is excellent in this area.
