The beach house was great for us and our dogs, who loved the full wrap-around deck. We also really liked feeding the turtles, and the short walk to the beach. One piece of advice, though: bring bug spray. The mosquitos are out in full force!

Love our stay!

The place was beautiful and perfect location to the beach and close to the big store. Very convenient.

Beautiful home, great location, the downstairs Apartment/room was a great hangout, but definitely wouldn’t sleep in there...too many bugs. Plenty of beds upstairs though. No dishwasher, so if your cooking for a large group, be prepared to wash dishes. Best to bring paper plates etc.
Manager response:
Thank you for providing feedback, Kelli. We are glad you enjoyed your stay! We appreciate you bringing this issue to our attention, and we'll schedule a service visit to treat any bugs present. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

This was a fun trip.

Location: Great location minutes from the Big Store. Less than 10-minute walk to beach. Full beach access (cars included).

Rooms: In the main house, there is a king bedroom, a double queen bedroom, and 2 bunk beds off the kitchen. Downstairs there is a separate suite with its own kitchen, as well as a king bedroom and a loft with children’s beds. Having the bunk beds directly off the kitchen was a little annoying for adults wanting to stay up past kids’ bedtime.

Amenities: This house is very well-stocked with almost everything you could need. Nice open kitchen with tons of kitchenware. TVs in every room. The garage has a charcoal grill, cooler, chairs, and some basic beach toys. It was a little frustrating that the TVs were content-locked without providing a password.

Overall, a very good beach house. Almost perfect. Will definitely stay in this house in the future. Owner and manager very accommodating and friendly.

We had a great weekend.

The beach house definitely met our expectations. You can tell that the owners and management really care about their customers/tenants. The golf cart was the selling point of the house and it was so much fun. The kiddos really enjoyed going on rides on the beach and feeding the turtles. Thank you guys for sharing your house with our family. From our family to yours Thank you!

We loved staying at Crystal Crab. The many bigger beds (3 queens, 2 fulls) fit our adult-sized teens and we enjoyed the king bed. There were movies and games for the rainy times and the golf cart was an awesome perk for no extra charge. The apartment was perfect for our oldest teen and the bedroom a/c unit was perfect in the apartment. The gazebo, outdoor shower and patio extended the living space nicely. We hope to be back!

We had a good time.

Super fun home! Our kids loved the turtles just as much as the beach! Fun place!

The house was very nice and well equipped with all the essentials- lots of games and puzzles for kids - even had a kids table for eating.
The bunk beds were not in a bedroom but in an open area next to kitchen - having use of the golf cart was definitely a plus and one reason we chose this house. There is a charcoal grill but no gas grill - it is an electric grill with pellets. We did not use the electric grill. The deck was awesome with the large wooden chairs.
The apt/mother in law cabin is nice for someone to sleep in - queen bed - but kitchen and bathroom
were too hot - no window unit - only ac is in bedroom.
It was a great vacation with family. Thanks

Recently rented the Crystal Crab for a quick weekend getaway for us and a few friends and their families and absolutely loved it! The house itself is very comfortable and inviting. We enjoyed being able to sit out on the front porch and see and hear the gulf as the waves rolled in. The kids enjoyed being able to feed the turtles from the pergola behind the house. Being able to use the golf cart was an added bonus as it allowed for us to quickly go from the beach to the house and back as needed. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we will definitely consider the Crystal Crab for our next trip to the best beach in Texas.

It's like taking home on vacation with you.

Hassles Free, great communication, clean rooms, good view, close proximity to the beach, golf cart is a bonus. Thanks.

I took my daughters, 7 grandchildren and my Mama on a little Spring Break getaway and we were thrilled with Crystal Crab!! Very nice house, lots of things for kids to do and not be bored!! They loved fishing off the deck and watching the turtles and having a huge golf cart to drive them up and down the beach was a super nice bonus! The kitchen was well stocked, there were plenty of linens, my oldest boys loved the lodging downstairs where they had their own little place to hide out and we took advantage of the dominoes for a big family game each night! We only wished we had time to stay longer! We will absolutely be back and treasure the great memories our family made!!

When we arrived it was Easter and the owner had set out eggs and chocolate bunnies for the kids. The golf cart made everything simple, just left it loaded up and took beach trips whenever we wanted. Also, quick trips to the store. The smoker and grill was great for cheap lunch and dinners. Definitely more then we expected, and it was surprisingly quiet after 10pm!
