Enjoyed this place very much. Within walking distance to the beach. Clean, very nice set up. Definitely would recommend and hope to stay again soon!
Sean L. Jul 2020
House was very clean and the walk to the beach took us less than a few minutes. Had everything any one could ever need. This is the perfect spot.

Cozy beach house only 2-3 minute walk from the beach. My family loved the space and we enjoyed spending time on the swings and all the comfy chairs. They had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. I highly recommend staying here with friends and family

We loved everything about this property. I think the best aspect was having everything you need (e.g., linens, towels, kitchen utensils, etc) at your finger tips. On top of the quality of the property and amenities, it was very clean and inviting with a cozy and homey feel. We will definitely look for this property in the future for our trips to Crystal Beach. The only negative aspect was that the property was listed as having a washer and dryer on site but we could not find it. Other than that minor inconvenience, we had a lovely stay.
Manager response:
Hi, Rebecca! Thank you for sharing your review with us. The washer and dryer are located in the garage, but there is currently no access; we apologize we missed getting this addressed prior to your arrival and will be sure to handle it right away. We hope to see you again!

crystal by the sea was perfect for our group. We had couples hanging out enjoying my birthday. Plenty of room and we all slept comfortably. Great location as well in the town. Walking distance to beach and stores. Will definitely be renting this house again

We loved everything about this home. From the size, the decor, the downstairs area to chill, and right close to the beach!! We will be back 😁

Stayed two nights here with my family, nice and quiet neighborhood, house is exactly like the pictures, kitchen was well stocked with dishes and cooking ware to prepare meals. Couldn't give 5 stars because we had a problem with the lockbox not opening upon arriving due to the wrong code being sent to us and could not reach anyone for help. Also, this property really needs a bigger trash bin or a second one outside as we had to leave our garbage out because the bin was full when we arrived. Other than those minor issues, we had a great stay and would recommend this property.
Manager response:
Hi Mike, thank you so much for your thoughtful review! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the home. We are so sorry for the issue you experienced with the lockbox. The lockbox code has been updated and fixed. We hope to host you again in the future!

Our stay at Crystal by the sea was awesome! The beach house was well equipped with everything one would need, right down to wine bottle stoppers and a refrigerated free standing wine cooler! The house is very well maintained, very clean ,spacious and beautifully decorated. ( I have got to have a dining table and benches like that! ) We sat on the huge deck and enjoyed the peace and quiet as well as the view. Nice area downstairs with outdoor shower. There are plenty of restaurants in the area , grocery store, liquor store and a convenient store right at your fingertips. You can tell that the owners took a lot of time and thought into making this a class act rental. Yes, I would definitely recommend Crystal by the Sea!
