Very nice and spacious home. I wish we would have been warmer to enjoy the pool. Well maintained and beach was close. Home could have easily slept 12. Master bedroom and bathroom was nice. A hot tub at the home would have been perfect for off summer guest. Well appointed and wireless was good.

The house was beautiful, with lots of windows and great views of the beach. As other reviewers have stated, the living room could use some more seating (especially with how many the house sleeps). I don't know if it was the time of year or what, but the property had SO MANY MOSQUITOS. We're from Texas, so we're used to it, but we got attacked every time we walked to the pool or beach, like biting us through our shirts, 50 mosquitos on you the whole was crazy. The pool area is top notch, the beach is a standard Texas beach. They plan to build a lot more houses on the property, which will probably change the feel, but for now it was lovely and not crowded. Also, don't expect anything off property, your grocery store and restaurant choices are extremely limited. Overall a great family trip!

The pool

We LOVED the gated community where this house is located. There are only 4 other homes constructed, so you feel like it is your own private oasis. The pool is GORGEOUS and the beach access is terrific. The home itself is really pretty and can accommodate large groups easily. There were a few issues (grill did not work, no coffee maker, some broken pieces of furniture...) but the Property Manager was quick to reply and offer us what help she could. The views every morning make you feel like you're truly on vacation - it's a gorgeous property in a beautifully kept neighborhood. We would definite recommend this house and would love to return one day!

It’s a very nice and overall clean home. We liked the pool area and the access to beach (with that private feel). While some kids swam, others fished. Great air conditioner... gets really cold if you want it. Plenty of towels and soft super comfy blankets. I will add there was excitement with the alligator at the pond and mosquitoes that could carry you off. You may need to bring your own pots if you like to cook, but they have plenty of dishes and utensils. Really enjoyed this stay.

The pool was the best

This is an amazing beach home. Lots of room for family and friends. Perfect view of the ocean! Just make sure everyone can walk up 3 flights of stairs! It’s a lot taking all the groceries up! Other than that it’s great!

This property was everything we imagined and more. The neighborhood was quaint and private, and the shared pool was the most amazing part. My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and we hope to visit again.

very big and roomy. loved the pool
Gerald R. Jul 2019
The house is beautiful and very well appointed. We had everything we needed for a 5 day stay. The community only has 2 homes so far and as a result we felt like we were at an exclusive resort. We used the pool everyday and took advantage of the fire pit area.
There is nearby construction but it didn't bother us at all. The only drawback was that the ceiling fans all worked off of a single remote control, took a little coordinating to ensure no one had the lights turned on in the middle of the night by mistake!
Would definitely stay again.

Who knew Crystal beach has a ritzy area.
Martha R. Jun 2019
We came together for a family get together from 4 different states. The house was beautifully decorated and provided panoramic views of the gulf and the resort style pool. The main living area is on the third level, with kitchen, dining, laundry, powder room and master suite. The second level has three bedrooms and two full baths. Lovely balconies on two levels with seating.

The pool was spacious and the sun cabanas were awesome. Access to the beach was easy. We rented a golf cart to tote beach and pool items, and to give the grandkids rides on the beach.

Only drawbacks: The main living area seating does not accommodate large groups comfortably. Lots of stairs for lugging groceries up to 3rd level. No elevator.

There is no one else out here, and it is beautiful.
Ashley O. Jun 2019
This place is incredible and the pool next to the ocean is amazing. We had the pool to ourselves the whole time.
LAUREN H. Jun 2019
There are only two houses in this development. More houses are being built. Get out here before it gets crowded.

Lisa C. May 2019
The home is gorgeous and we loved the pool! It was like being at a resort. Great views of the ocean and easy access!
Katy A. Mar 2019
House was beautiful. Pool was great - cold but weather was cool and overcast.
Rented a golf cart - very helpful as we had 2 3 year olds and a grandma - for beach visits. At high tide beach was gone, otherwise, great to drive on - tons of seashells.
Deck- great size. Kids played there a lot while we were in the 3rd floor.
Vacasa was great to deal with. Gina was helpful!
Negatives: living on 3rd floor- lots of stairs. Hard for grandma. Terrible for unloading groceries 😳.
Bedrooms on 2nd floor- could hear every foot step from above.
Couches/ comfy seating for 4... there was 6 of us.
Construction- building 2 houses in the neighborhood. Hammering noises over the ocean sounds. Could not hear inside, just when on the decks.
Busy road - the road noise can be heard in the rooms closest to the road, but not those in the beach side. Used Alexa provided to pay ocean noises.
Beds and dining room table are tall - we are short kids!

Cake by the Ocean was a beautiful house that was stocked with everything we needed for a long weekend. All the windows and balconies were my favorite, those views make you feel so relaxed. We had access to a pool and private beach. There is plenty of room and great for hosting large groups. It's a great place to spend time with friends and family, read a good book and enjoy not having to worry about anything. We will definitely go back and I can't wait!
