New listing! Sunny retreat w/ beach access & ocean views - perfect for families
There are few places that will take your breath away, yet Crystal beach is definitely one of them! Sitting just steps from the pristine sand and warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, this home is just the place to bring the whole family for that much-anticipated getaway! With accommodations for up to 10 guests, everyone will love spreading out and finding their own piece of paradise. Whether it be enjoying a cold drink on the wraparound deck or making something tasty in the full kitchen, there is something for everyone to enjoy. After a day on the sand, everyone can rinse off in the outdoor shower and gather for a movie night or indulge in a glass of wine as the sun goes down.
What's nearby: Crystal Beach is just the place to get some much-needed seclusion while still being within close proximity to the urban hustle and bustle! The endless beaches of Bolivar are right outside your front door, so having a picnic in the sun while the kids build sandcastles will be a breeze! If you want a break from the beach, venture inland less than a mile and treat the whole family to a fun-filled day at Fun Spot Water Slide. Don't forget to grab a scoop of ice cream from Ritas and Cream on your way back home. Plus, the lively city of Galveston is a short ferry ride away making it a perfect day trip for everyone to enjoy.

Great house with an icemaker for this hot Texas days!!

Close to the beach ( one block). Can see the fireworks and beach traffic from the balcony. Rented this same home last New Years. I still think there should be more parking than 2 cars for a 10 person rental. It is on a busy thru street to the beach, which did not bother us. Everything was great. Would rent again.
Hi, Jerry! Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review and for your repeat business. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Please be aware that in addition to 2 parking spots on the east side, there is an RV pad located on the west between the house and the trash cans. That RV pad provides an additional 4- 6 parking spaces directly next to the home. We hope that helps clarify this for you! We look forward to having the opportunity to host you again in the future!

Very clean, well stocked with necessities, great location.

The house is close to the beach, but there were several things that needed repair (i.e. the ceiling fan upstairs was broken, the coffee maker wasn't working correctly, etc), and some areas are just worn out. There aren't very many restaurants to choose from, several were closed for business with no explanation, and several allow smoking anywhere inside (not good if you have allergies!). We are avid beach-goers and this was our first--AND LAST--time to go to Crystal Beach.
We are sorry to read you were unhappy, Christi. We have scheduled someone to come repair the ceiling fan, and the coffee maker appears to be working well upon inspection. Thank you!

The view of the sea and the birds. The home was comfortable and clean. There were no problems with the primary systems. The porch was nice to sit on and watch the scenery.
Teresa C.Jul 2021
Great House!!! Loved how close it was to the water and the view from the porch...
Sheri M.Jul 2021
Unobstructed view of the ocean. Beautiful home with all the amenities. Enjoyed a week here and look forward to booking again.
Cody B.Jun 2021
We loved the proximity to the beach. That's all. The rest of the house is underwhelming and in much need of a tune up/refresh and deep cleaning. It is not hard to scrub windows, showers, run a cleaning cycle through the washer/dryer.
Hello, Cody, we are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay and the accessible location to the beach! Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We will be sure to pass your suggestions along to our local manager who will work with our homeowner to make necessary upgrades. We look forward to hosting you again!

Lovely, well furnished home just steps away from the beach. This home was perfect for our family vacation. The kids loved the bunk room upstairs. We can’t wait to return!
Pamela G.Mar 2021
The home was very nice. The location was awesome. A couple small things, it states linens provided, but there was no wash clothes or dish cloths. Was not a big problem, went up to Dollar General and purchased. Could not figure out some of the lights switches, think the light bulbs may have been burnt out. Need a diagram on lights. The one shower, ,water was not hot, Think it just needs an adjustment. Overall was a great week and would recommend this home and would rent again.
Hi, thank you for your review! We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay! We're sorry for any issues you encountered during your stay. The local manager has replaced the bulbs, added towels, and addressing the shower. We appreciate your feedback and hope to host you again soon!
Jerry I.Jan 2021
It was exactly as described. Clean, well furnished. Nice of view of the beach from the balcony. Could really use more than two parking spots. A lot of traffic due to being located on a main access road to the beach, but not a problem for us. As stated, easy access to beach and shops. We would book again.

beyond expectations - great view, very clean property, happy to receive a cylinder full of propane to do the grilling - a great holiday experience

Very close to anything you could need. We couldn't figure out how to work the tvs but we didn't really need them. May need to store more hand soap and toilet paper, we considered buying some but we made do with what we had since it was a short trip. Master bedroom and living room have lovely views. Our main trip issues were nature related ( jellyfish and mosquitos galore on day one 😅) and then our last night the house next door had loud music until 3am but what can you do 🤷♀️ great upstairs space for kids and they gave games and activities available for rainy days which we thought was an excellent touch. No need to purchase water toys or boards as they have some available in the garage. Outdoor seating is varied and comfortable (for a plus size person) dining room table is very comfortable. Spacious bathroom and storage space. Also for those that cook they have seasonings and cookware as well. Very nicely stocked kitchen.

We had such a great time in this cabin. It had everything that you would need and then some. I totally recommend renting thru Vacasa it was probably the easiest rental I've ever rented. I can't wait to use them again. What great memories were made in this cabin. Cari Ledoux

We couldn’t have asked for a better location. The beach was easily accessible by car, golf cart and even a less than 5 minute walk to the water. The house was clean and laid out well. The kids LOVED the upstairs and we loved that they had their own space and full bathroom.
Tracy H.Aug 2020
Seaside Escape is a beautifully decorated and well equipped home. The owners have provided everything you’ll need. Lots of room. Perfect room upstairs for teens giving them their own space and bathroom. Kitchen has plenty of cookware. Lots of spices and seasonings to prepare that big meal. There plenty of seating to accommodate everyone. There’s even a bonus Murphy bed for extra sleeping space. The owners even graciously allowed us access to their garage to use their canopy tent and games. We have stayed in a lot of vacation homes, but this one is by far the best.
Thank you again for making our end of summer getaway the best. God bless!
Natalie F.Aug 2020
Loved how close this house was to the beach. Perfect location!
Janiece M.Jul 2020
We had a very short window in which we could schedule a quick get-away. We were shocked that we could get such a great place on short notice. It’s a wonderful property with an amazing view, and we will very likely book it again.

Enjoyed a three night stay in this beach house. Modern amenities made for comfortable stay. The beds were cozy, all the furniture was quality furniture (LazyBoy couches), new towels, and well stocked kitchen (lots of pots and pans, glassware, knives, etc). The best part is the patio, outfitted with deck chairs and great view of the ocean. Only comment would be to have an extra dish towel. The beaches are a little crazy in the day, but a very short walk from the house gives lots of flexibility to come and go as needed.
Cindy M.Jul 2020
We loved sitting on the wrap around deck. The view and the sound of the waves was so amazing. We enjoyed the sunrise and sunset. We could just walk to the beach. Very relaxing and great house.
Robert A.Jul 2020
Great access to beach!

This place was a perfect beach getaway! It was really close to the waters and we all
Love the wrap around deck with the great views! Perfect for tweens who wants to just hang out, avail of the home Wifi and at the same time lounge and relax.
The house has everything you need especially the kitchen! We would love to stay in this place again!
The only bad thing we noticed was that when we arrived after 4pm, the housecleaners were not done cleaning the house so we couldn’t get in until after waiting outside for about 30minutes. I noticed that the floors were not mopped and cleaned very well and the carpets were still dirty in the loft as they probably rushed to finish when they realized we were outside waiting.
Overall, I still give it 4 stars! It would have been 5 if not the cons stated above!
Thank you for leaving a review, Apple! We appreciate this. We apologize that it was not as clean as it should have been, this is never what we want to hear. We are going to be following up with our local staff to make sure that the cleanliness issues are addressed.
