Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12

Street's Retreat is a beautiful beach side cottage with great views and all the conveniences of a modern home!

If you are looking for a beach cabin where everyone has their own space, this is the place. With 4 bedrooms and 4 baths, this is one of the only rental cabins where every bedroom has it's own bathroom! There are two bedrooms downstairs (on the main floor) and two bedrooms upstairs. Three bedrooms have queen size beds (All have been replaced as of 11/14) and one bedroom has a full size bed. The smallest bedroom downstairs shares it's bathroom with the hall in order for your guests to have access as well. One bedroom upstairs also has two additional full size built-in bunk beds! All bedrooms have their own cable TV for those late night movies or when the kids want to plug in their PlayStation/Xbox's!

The house has its own dedicated WiFi signal just in case you need to send that last email or need to get on the internet.

You can wash the sand out of your bathing suits in the stackable washer/dryer so that you don't go home with any dirty laundry. Did I mention when you get back from the sandy beach that you can just rinse off in our enclosed downstairs sand shower!!! If you aren't too sandy then just rinse your feet off with the foot sprayer at the bottom of the stairs!

Everyone will feel like part of the action in the fully furnished kitchen that opens into the great/family room with it's 20ft. ceilings! The couch and loveseat is just the place to catch a nap or watch a little television. You'll also notice the dining room table is a beautiful custom table made from reclaimed wood that was from historical homes destroyed during Hurricane IKE in 2008.

After dinner you'll want to go for a leisurely walk to look for sea shells down the beach while the sun sets or just hang out on the deck in a lounge chair and listen to the waves take all the stress away!!

Wherever or whatever you decide to do at Street's Retreat you will not go wrong. Remember, your on vacation.....relax and enjoy!!!!

About Jenny Overstreet

My wife and I grew up about an hour from Crystal Beach and each of us have our own fond memories of being on the beach while growing up in this area. After having three wonderful kids, we knew we wanted to get a beach house so that they could make their own great memories with their friends and family. We always feel relaxed and are able to shed the stress away from whatever is going on with our jobs, etc. Even though the city is just a short drive away, we always feel like we are on an island!!

Jenny Overstreet purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Jenny Overstreet chose Crystal Beach

Our family had bought this as an investment in 2005. After having the property for just a short period, we realized that we loved the area so much that we just couldn't sale it and decided to keep it for ourselves. We did a complete remodel in 2007 only to have Hurricane IKE completely level the house in 2008 after the house had stood for 51 years! We didn't think twice about rebuilding because of all the great times and many memories that we have down at the beach.

What makes this cabin unique

The location of this house in such a family-friendly area and the incredible views make this house one of the best in Crystal Beach. Having 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms makes it very nice for older kids, other couples, or even other families that are vacationing together! Having the clean, vacant lot in front of our house is a huge plus for the kids or just so that you are guaranteed a great view of the beach forever!

I think this house is beautiful

  • 4 of 5

I think this house is beautiful and set up perfectly for girls trips. I have booked it four years in a row and plan to continue to do so. I did not give it 5 stars because there is no soaps of any kind. There was no dishwasher soap even. No hand soap, no trash bags, no tp, no paper towels. No sheets. No towels. We were aware that we had to bring towels and sheets and while that is a big pain in the butt we understand it. The lack of dishwasher tablets just felt annoying and cheap. I think they could have easily left two tablets on the counter. We ended up hand washing everything.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. I am sorry that you felt inconvenienced. We try to make sure that everyone knows in advance that we so our best to supply paper goods upon arrival but, have not been successful in leaving a back up stock. Unfortunately, they seem to get accidentally packed up. As you know, one of the most appealing aspects of Crystal Beach is the lack of commercialization. However, due to this it is very difficult to restock when things get accidentally packed up. We want to make sure that the time between rentals is utilized by making the home clean and ready for your arrival. We do offer a linen service that offers sheets, bath towels and beach towels, for an additional charge for your convenience. As stated, we truly appreciate your response and we will do our best to be more accommodating in the future. We hope and look forward to having you and your family and friends back next year. Thanks again for choosing "Street's Retreat!"
