“Wow. A Wonderful Vacation House”
Reviewed 15 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

people found this review helpful

The Crystal Beach House was a great choice to gather our family for a great vacation, within a short, quiet walk to a fantastic beach.

The house had great accommodations for our large family group of 14, with plenty of space for quality time together or in smaller groups. We quickly felt as if we were at home. Everything we needed was provided…… a well equipped kitchen, a great pool, beach towels and chairs, pool toys for the kids, lovely bedroom setups with private baths, linens, etc. We all thoroughly enjoyed the heated pool with hot tub, and the surrounding grounds were comfortable and relatively private. Although we didn’t have to use it often, the golf cart was fun and helpful in hauling things to the beach. I’m not sure what more we could have expected. A wonderful experience.

The owner was very helpful in providing information and details throughout the rental process……a pleasure to work with.

If our family schedules permit, won’t hesitate repeating next year.

“Excellent Stay!”
Reviewed 9 November 2016 for a stay in September 2016

My husband, 3 kids (age 8, 6, and 3), mother, 93 year old grandmother, brother, sister-in-law, and I all stayed at this wonderful home during the month of September, We had plenty of space for all of us and the kids just loved the bunk room. Easy walk to the beach. (Golf cart was provided, but we didn't use or need it.) And the private pool was perfect after a day at the beach. We will stay again!

“The Love is in the Details”
Reviewed 30 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The house is perfect...you know that to look at it, and I guarantee, there isn't a bad room in the house. But it's the little things that blew me away. The cleanliness and hominess...the security alarms to the pool...the golf cart...the appliances..the beach gear...the labeled light switches! All of the details that show how much the Rawls cherish their visitors and want your stay to be as comfortable as possible. Like you're visiting friends! Tie that in with the amazing communication before, during, and after our trip...you just don't get that kind of quality treatment everywhere. Even if you find a comparable house, that kind of service is rare. So if you're on the fence...trust me, this is the one.

“Exactly As Advertised!”
Reviewed 12 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

"The property was exactly as advertised! Clean, well maintained and comfortable! It's the little things for me that matter the most! The bed and bed linens are nice, the towels thick and all the appliances work!

After enjoying a large family breakfast cooked with the up to date appliances, we would head for the beach! The golf cart provided easy transportation for my 84 yr old Mom down the short block to the public beach entrance. We rented beach chairs and umbrellas for the week from a nice private vendor. This house had beach chairs we used to sit closer to the water and play in the sand. Our family would stay on the beach until 5 pm and return to the beautiful pool for cocktail hour. We used the gas grill several times for our dinner! Plenty of butane provided to grill our fresh shrimp, steak and chicken! The surround sound stereo was amazing to turn on, sip a cocktail and enjoy an early evening swim. After dinner, we played card games and laughed around the large family style dining table. The living area has two very large sofa's for watching some TV or catching up on emails in the early morning with the wifi. Lastly, the rain shower head in both Master Baths was a great indulgence!

Although, our party was 7 adults, this home is very child friendly. The door alarms notify you when a door to the pool is opened and would be a great comfort for a parent. The bunk beds were adorable too. I imagine a group of siblings have a major adventure in this place!”

“Wonderful Family Memories Made”
Reviewed 5 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Just returned from a week stay at this location with family. What a wonderful house!
It accommodated everyone's needs...plenty of space and seating! Bedrooms and Baths were great for multiple families. Close proximity to the beach and the golf cart is a HUGE plus!
Great to have for family members that may not be able to make the walk.
Thank you again ...We created some wonderful family memories!!!
