    Great property to relax and enjoy the beach. Layout is perfect for a family and/or friends. Partially-covered deck allows for just relaxing or outdoor entertaining with front-row view of the beach. Deck also has a built-in gate at stairs which keeps children or pets contained. Updated lounge cushions, living rug & bed comforters were a nice surprise from VRBO photos. Additional seating has also been added to kitchen island. Recommended improvements would include updating king pillows, installing missing wall-mount toilet paper holder and blind wand in master bath, replace remote batteries when low & ensure dishes/glasses are clean. Overall a great place and would highly recommend to others.

    Our stay was short due to the tropical storm, so we didn’t get an opportunity to stay for our entire visit because we had to evacuate!

    Sea Dreams - Love bug Nightmare

    4/5 Stayed Sep 10, 2020
    Submitted Sep 14, 2020

    The location was great but on our second day there we were invaded by thousands of love bugs! Not the property owners fault and something that sometimes happens in Texas this time of year but it put a damper on our weekend. They were less bothersome down at the beach because there was a Breeze. In our opinion the king mattress & pillows in the master were in need of being replaced - way too soft/lumpy. The other beds seemed fine. The kitchen was one of the best stocked we’ve seen for a rental. We hope to come back again. Maybe make it an annual event!

    Great location, perfect deck, exceptional value, and great for pet owners.

    This house was wonderful. Location could not be better with drive way to the beach directly in front of the house. You do not get the crowd like you do in Galveston and further down the peninsula. The floor plan holds 8 people with no problem. We always bring atvs, golf cart, and 4 wheeler and this has been the first house with plenty of room to park trailers under the house. Not sure I will ever stay at another house on our yearly getaways.

    We loved this house. They were changing out the faucet in the guest bathtub when we got there and it never worked correctly afterwards. We had to just turn it back and forth until you got the right temperature. And the toilet in that bathroom had issues flushing and filling with water. Also, the pic online of the bunk room has two sets of single bunks but it’s actual one set of full or Queen. We made it work but could be a dealbreaker for people when planning sleeping arrangements. Beyond that, we loved the house and location.

    Just what we were wanting. Excellent views and very nice. Perfect beach access. I took my boat with me and the piers under the house were not wide enough to park the boat under house, no big deal because I just parked it in the drive way (my boat and trailer are wide though). So if anyone is wanting to take your boat just keep that in mind.

    My girlfriend and I stayed 3 nights and 4 days with my mother, her blue heeler dog, and my sister and it was the perfect place. The house was literally 50 feet from the ocean with amazing ocean views! It was so great my mom chose to spend her entire vacation at the house/beach while the rest of us went into town. The house is dog friendly but you can not tell, there is no distinctive pet smell or damage. The house was the perfect size for 4 people and 1 medium size dog. Plenty of open space so we all weren’t on top of each other. The house came with a lot of supplies, myself and my family was totally impressed! Plenty of cooking utensils, cooking spices, hand soap, and laundry detergent! It was fantastic. Everything was so comfortable. It really felt like a home away from home.

    Stayed a week with our 2 Great Danes and loved this house. The layout with open living room to dining room and kitchen was perfect. Things we liked were the fantastic ocean front view, nice big deck, easy access to the beach, comfortable reclining couches, no carpet, plenty of rugs, throw blankets, towels and kitchen supplies. Also liked having the washer/dryer and outside hoses for rinsing off. The king bed was a little firm for us but we slept well anyway. Enjoyed being able to have our dogs with us and take walks on the beach each day. The weekend traffic on beach was more busy and a little noisy (you can drive on this beach) with music and fireworks but nothing too annoying or that even kept us awake at all. The weekdays were so quiet and peaceful. We were lucky to experience blue water that last 2 days too - very nice! The management company was great to work with, very responsive and helpful. We didn’t want to leave and will definitely be back!

    We had the best time at Sea Dreams! We haven't been able to think of much of anything else but the great time we had and how Texas is so awesome! House is right in the beach, our first night there was a full moon and the moon shone over the water so beautifully. I was magical. The location was great , felt like we had privacy even with people in the house behind us. Kitchen well stocked and the heat was on when we got there so the house was warm and felt inviting. That was very appreciated. There was a great view from each room except the bedroom with the bunk beds. Can't beat that!The house can definitely fit two small families comfortably. The deck is huge an has a ton of room. The outside shower was handy for rinsing off sand from the beach. One say was stormy and we stayed in and watched tv, lots to choose from as there was amazon tv and Netflix and a dvd assortment available. The ferry ride to Galveston was fun each day ,not much of a wait. My only complaint is there were only 6 hangers in the closet, not a big deal for us. We want to return to Sea Dreams one day!!

    This is our second visit to Sea Dreams and hopefully not the last. Even though it rained some (hurricane season) it didn't put a damper on the stay at all. Loved the angry sea as well as the beautiful calm sea. The house was just as nice as the first visit - well equipped and away from the crowd. Neighbors were a delight - loved watching him fish and catch some amazing fish. If you go at this time be sure to take lots of Off for the mosquitos. They were hungry but luckily we knew that. Mr. and Mrs. Skruggs are wonderful owners and responded to any needs we had - which was hardly anything - internet was out due to storm but that was fixed as fast as possible. Who needs internet when you have the view you get at Sea Dreams. Can't wait for the next time. The 3 weeks went by too fast. Thanks again so much for offering this beautiful house for us to vacation.

    This place is great. We’ve stayed here twice now. Probably be back next year. It’s clean, nice & comfortable. And it’s so close to the beach. So easy to run back & forth. The only thing I could possible say is that it’s a little low on kitchen supplies. We noticed this the first year so the next year we were just careful to bring particular things.. baking dishes, Tupperware & a sharp knife. But that’s not a deal breaker, can’t wait to come back.

    Seadreams is exactly that! I had to pinch myself a few times to make sure it was real and not a dream. The location is amazing- the views are breathtaking! A truly priceless vacation for our family! The home is stunning and most comfy and inviting with all amenities you could imagine. The beach is quiet and welcoming with sooo many treasures to be found. We had several beach days and just enjoyed the house and location- cooked our own meals(kitchen well stocked with pots, pans, utensils, etc- just bring your own seasoning) which was great for keeping us out of the loud touristy places you sometimes find on vacation. The area does offer some exceptional dining if you know where to look...which is why I love it here even more. The owners have an amazing home and have created the perfect environment, in my opinion, for an amazing family vacation! We have already started planning next year! There may even be a girls trip in between. Clean house, nice bathrooms with plenty of towels, soft sheets, super comfy couch. Beautiful appliances- again, everything first class- all we needed to bring was our food and drinks.fridge had filtered water and made heaps of ice too! And super bonus- washer and dryer- to come home with all clean clothes- priceless! Nice new Weber kettle grill downstairs for bbq too!

    Upon arrival, we could tell it was going to be a beautiful stay. The view is unbeatable. We stayed in Freeport, TX two years ago and were so sad that we didn't see any wildlife on that beach. This week, my husband caught numerous fish, we spotted small sharks, a jellyfish washed up to the shore, we caught a crab on our fishing line, spotted multiple other crabs, little fish and even a dolphin or two. The weather was perfect the first two days of our stay. It stormed only once and we went to Moody Gardens that day. (Word of advice, don't do Moody Gardens if you don't like crowds). The last time we were there, it was amazing. Everyone was helpful and spent time with the kids teaching. This time around, it was hectic, we actually got yelled at a few times from the staff when trying to walk around people or touch the animals and it frightened the kids. We definitely did not get our money's worth. We were in and out of the aquarium in an hour. We weren't impress with the new renovation. However, if you are looking for something to do with the kids, get a kite and some body boards. The tide was pretty low and calm most of the week and the girls could go out and body surf with little worry. The wind was great for kite flying. We also picked up some Red Snapper from Katie's Seafood Shop and had a fish fry. We spent hours on the beach and had an absolute blast. Thank you so much for renting out your home to us! The only thing the home didn't have were utensils for some things we were cooking such as a garlic press, a nut cracker and small fork for crab eating, etc so if you plan on a lot of odds and ends cooking, maybe bring a few things with you. :) We LOVED our stay! Thank you again!

Our first day there we saw a pod of dolphins while we were eating breakfast just off the shore like 20 feet into the water!!!!! Our kids were ecstatic!!! To our delight and surprise, they were back while we were eating dinner just before the sun set. We almost tripped over ourselves to go out and watch them on the deck. It was magical. The beach was perfect for beach combing. We found a wealth of shells, beach glass and prehistoric sharks' teeth....all just steps from the house right on the beach. We even became so relaxed in our vacation, that we got off on our dates......Due to the amenities and the proximity to the beach, this house is a gem!!!!

    We took a last minute trip to the beach and George replied to us immediately on New Years Day as we were searching for a property for the next day, January 2nd. He was quick in his response and we had no issues booking. On arrival at the home we were pleasantly surprised at the location right along the beach. We had looked at so many houses on Homeaway and then on Google maps where the location was maybe not as portrayed. In the case of this home it was opposite. We had no idea it would be in such a great location. It is a quick walk to the beach and is right next to the road so there is no dune-hopping. There was no traffic on the road to the beach but summer may be a different story. As for the house it was in great shape with very nice amenities as described. We were surprised with the different bunk beds than in the pictures and the new beds were excellent (they even have Tempurpedic style mattresses). The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed, plenty of towels in the bathrooms, overall just nicely appointed with comfortable furniture. The beach itself is not your normal sandy beack like Port A. It has a lot of shells and hardpacked sand which our kids loved. They were able to get as many shells as they wanted. Since we plan on going back to Crystal Beach at some point we wanted to look at the other homes for rent via Homeaway and kept saying we definitely would pick Seadreams again due to its closeness to the beach, beautiful deck and best of all, a warm outdoor shower when you are done at the beach. The only negative I have to say was the master bed was not as comfortable as I would have hoped. It did not have a headboard and was a bit noisy anytime you moved. I did have a solution though and on our last night I just stayed in the bottom bunk of the bunkbed on the Tempurpedic style mattress and it was awesome! Thanks again to the Scruggs family and we will definitely be returning again.

    This last minute trip to the beach went off without a hitch. The house is better than described and has a fantastic view. We did not bring fishing poles but if you going to fish they were catching them like crazy directly in front of the house. The kitchen was fully stocked for anything you might need. I will say if you heat up food in the microwave alot you might grab some paper plates as the plates (as beautiful as they are) are not microwave safe. The beds are adequate, and I only use adequate because everyone 's idea of the perfect bed is different. The downstairs shower and hammock were nice, we did find we stayed almost our entire trip on the lounge chairs listening to music and soaking up the sun. We will be back for sure! If you need more than one house the one behind SeaDreams belongs to them as well, they are very close together but the placement of the balcony was genius and allows for a great view as well.

    Delightful experience. The owners literally thought of EVERYTHING a vacationer could possibly need or desire. Beautiful views. This home is definitely far east in the much quieter section of the island. We were pleased & amazed how quiet this location was...and because of the sweet ocean's rolling sound and the minimal traffic...we slept great! The beach is right at your doorstep. Well equipped home in all aspects. And, spotlessly clean... yay~ Within 5 minutes of arriving, we knew this was a special place, and one that we would like to return to in the future. Being new at the VRBO website, I had some questions - before, during and even after our stay. Each time I asked the owner questions, George not only answered us each time, but he replied VERY quickly, usually within a few hours. His accessibility was amazing. Thanks for sharing your beach home! And, thanks George for your kindness and patience with this newbie. :)

Absolutely no obstruction, just ocean views. George is very quick to respond to any questions you may have and also quick with the return of your deposit. They even left a few welcoming gifts as well. The deck is very spacious and well laid out. The beach is right out the front door and while there were people out on the beach, the majority of the time, we had a good space to ourselves. My family and friends will definitely stay at Seadreams again.

    This is a great place with nothing between you and the beach/ocean. It's as close as you can get. The deck is huge with a completely unobstructed view. The interior is very clean, comfortable, modern amenities, with great attention to detail by the owners. My wife and I brought our three boys and the best friend of my oldest 17 year old son. 2 adults, 2 eleven year olds, and 2 seventeen year olds. We had plenty of room. We could have comfortably brought two more and no one would of been in the floor or on a couch. After a long 12hr drive nothing whatsoever was a disappointment upon arriving and while there are people around it was never crowded. There were multiple instances of our having our section of beach all to ourselves. For those coming from a distance the peninsula is just the right amount of seclusion and convenience. This place is not far from a store that sells a lot more than I suspected (fresh produce, proteins, fishing and beach stuff, clothes, you name it, etc), several restaurants, places to rent beach stuff, and even golf carts to cruise up and down the beach on. Galveston isn't that far and a ferry exist to carry you over (free). You're down the road from everything just far enough to enjoy a reasonable expectation of privacy but not so far that it's a headache if you need/want something. Communication exchanges with the owners was pretty quick and occurs within the host sites messaging system. They were very friendly and pleasant. I had a lot of questions and that's probably expected when you're clients are from out of state. They were great! We looked at dozens of places in the $250-$400 range. Stop looking. This place is where you want to go. 10/10 experience.

    This is our second year renting on the Bolivar Peninsula and this home could not have been better. The home is just steps away from the beach and has a large deck with unobstructed views of the Gulf. There were no homes to the left or right of us which allowed us to really enjoy the quite and relaxing upstairs deck. The home directly behind this one was fairly close, but thanks to a great layout we barely noticed it was there. There was plenty of seating on the deck and might I say the 2 tall deck chairs were a big hit! The house was spotless and had everything we needed for our stay. The house includes Wifi (don't recall seeing this on the list of amenities) and there were welcoming treats (popcorn, Kashi bars, 2 Coronas and 2 bottles of water) in the kitchen for our arrival. We will definitely be booking this home in the future. My family and I had a great time. Thank you, George, for letting us enjoy your home!

    What a relaxing time we had at this beautiful beach home right on the beach, with direct beach access. The view from the large covered porch is spectacular. There are no homes in front of it to block the view. Everything you need is thoughtfully provided by the owner. We loved having an outdoor downstairs shower (both hot and cold water) to wash off all the sand after being on the beach. The home is beautifully and comfortably furnished and decorated and the beds are very comfortable. Nothing not to love about Sea Dreams. (An added plus is Wi Fi and flat screen T.V. in the living room and 2 main bedrooms.)

    The Home is simply wonderful. I wish I was still sitting on the porch. Everything you need is close by, groceries, restaurant ect. The owner is responds fast to any questions. I would have given 5 stars but, I feel like the beach is a very big part of the experience. The beach is not very clean. I don't know if it is a state or local thing but, I feel like whoever it is, needs to make an effort to clean the the washed up trash on a regular basis. I am reviewing the home though, and it does not disappoint.

    If you are looking for the perfect Beach House on Crystal Beach, you have just found it. Me, my Son, his Wife, & 3 wonderful grandchildren (ages 7, 9, & 10) stayed here June 4-11, 2016. Back in January, me, my son, and 2 of the kiddos drove down to Crystal Beach for the day, from Houston, on a Saturday. We had a list of 30+ houses to look at, to find our vacation Beach House. Location was top priority. Right on the beach, with easy access to the beach and water. Of course, advertisements for most houses said they were beach front or easy beach access. Well, most were not. Most were not easy to actually get to beach without a golf cart or walking a long way. Well, when we got to Sea Dreams, we knew it was probably the one. It WAS right on the beach, very nice, had the biggest balcony of any we had looked at, had the nicest patio furniture on the balcony of any, undoubtedly had the best view, AND.....from the house, it literally took us 3 minutes to be walking on the beach right down to the water. The other houses we looked at that day just did not measure up. The kids kept saying, but it is not as good as the orange one. Yep, Sea Dreams is orange, but hey, it's the beach. By the end of the day, it was unanimous that Sea Dreams was the winner. AND, Our vacation was perfect from the time we arrived until the time we left. The house is gorgeous. Still looks new. Well taken care of. Inside is appointed very well. It is a lot bigger on the inside than even the pictures show. Living room furniture is all leather so did not have to worry about the kids sitting on them with a wet bathing suits. Very well laid out. The island and matching dining table was my favorite. We could sit, visit, eat, cook, drink all together. All of the beds were very, very comfortable. Pillows too. Kitchen well equipped. Master suite was a pleasure, with private balcony right outside my door. It was great because we could sit out on the balcony (half is covered/shaded, half in the sun), go down to the beach, and go back & forth very easily. Sand & water absolutely wonderful. Beach not crowded. Concrete floor underneath the house was great for washing the sand off all the toys & beach stuff with the water hose provided. Outside shower, downstairs was a huge treat. Cannot say enough good things! Owner George was terrific/pleasure to deal with. Fast responses. Already got deposit back. We will never stay anywhere but Sea Dreams at Crystal Beach. We'll be back!

Ready to go back already. The layout of this property inside kept everyone in the loop but the bedrooms provided good privacy. The mattress I slept on in the queen room was wonderful.

This beautiful home is steps from the water, the view is amazing, sun rise is to die for and the sound of the waves will cure what ails you. The house was perfect - well equipped with everything we needed, including emergency coffee stash (we forgot ours!). Of all the places we've rented over the years, this was a favorite!

    My family (two sons, their wives, and my 2-year-old grandson) had a wonderful vacation last week. We are long-time beachcombers and this was the best beach vacation we ever had on the Gulf. It was our first time in Texas, and we enjoyed the privacy of this beautiful beach, just steps from the door. We had no trouble finding it from Lake Charles, but the group coming from Houston got confused by another James Street at first. Sea Quell was well furnished and supplied, the view was awesome, the owners hospitable, and the weather cooperated beautifully: sun every day, waves some days, almost constant breezes, and even a magnificent thunderstorm one afternoon, after a morning on the beach, which blew through in time for us to get back on the beach that afternoon. We enjoyed a delicious meal at Steve's Landing and hope to try out other restaurants next time. If you could please get rid of the mosquitoes, it would be nearly perfect!

    Kitchen was well equipped and house very clean. No major problems or issues during our stay. Loved the location and it was nice to be able to walk out to the beach. View is gorgeous. Will definitely book again. It does not have WIFI, that would be my only suggestion for improvement.

    2 moms and 4 teenage girls

    The girls took the bunk room while the moms enjoyed their own bedrooms. Initially the teens panicked that there was no wifi but I am happy to say they quickly enjoyed the 'retro' idea of reading books, playing cards, and talking to each other! The beach was so convenient we felt comfortable sending the girls down while the moms sat on the deck to watch, and nap. By the end of the trip the girls were spending more time on the 'wooden beach', aka the deck, with its padded lounge chairs and perfect view of the beach. The deck has gates so it would be appropriate for pets and young children. Two bathrooms were plenty for us but no one ever used the indoor showers! All six of us took turns using the outdoor shower. It provided plenty of privacy and somehow added an extra spa feeling to the trip. The kitchen was well stocked and all beds and linens were comfortable. The couches are all convertible to recliners that added comfort to our movie nights; all provided by our hosts. The Big Store had everything we needed from groceries to beach supplies. Produce was a little high but nothing exorbitant considering they are the only spot on the Island. Absolutely perfect location for a quiet getaway and a quick ferry trip into Galveston for a night out on The Strand.
