Beachouse is old but super clean. Great location. Very outdated appliances and bathrooms but again super clean.- Leah F , Posted: 07/13/2020
This house definitely needs many updates (chipped paint on deck, sliding doors don't open/close or have open gaps when fully closed). None of the 3 provided can openers worked. The wifi is terrible. I get that the main reason you come to the beach is to be at the beach, but if you're experiencing bad weather days like I did, having reliable wifi is a must. I found it odd that the listing didn't include any photos of the bathrooms. The bathrooms were decent. Very dated...felt like I stepped into a 1980s time warp but didn't have any issues. There is an outdoor shower, however, it's not enclosed like other houses I've been to. The king bed in the primary bedroom wasn't very comfortable but the a/c works well in that room. Aside from the interior of the house, you can't beat the deck view! You are literally right at the water's edge during high tide. Even when standing downstairs beneath the house, you're right at the beach. No grassy dunes in front of this house like the others. Seems like this house was the only first row house left standing on Pirate's Beach after Ike. The neighborhood is nice. You're 6 steps away from the beach ramp as soon as you walk off the driveway. Can't beat that! Not quite sure the house's price point aligns with the overall package, but it was the last option available to me at the time of booking.- Claudia T , Posted: 06/26/2020
Great location- Patty M , Posted: 06/23/2020
The location was amazing. The beds were not that comfortable and in one of the bedrooms upstairs the electric shades would not pull down and there were no curtains for that room. Not a lot of kitchen bowls, etc. We enjoyed our stay. You definitely can not beat the location just expected a little more things to be nicer on the inside because of the price.- Kevin and Ronda T , Posted: 09/06/2019
wonderful for three couples. Doors to upstairs balcony do not work but the downstairs balcony was great! Couldn't be any closer to the beach with this one! Very good storage/2 refrigerators, two ovens and a microwave. Really did enjoy our stay.- Sheryl L , Posted: 09/04/2019
I loved the fact that you can sit on the deck and feel like you are almost on the ocean!- Patsy W , Posted: 08/28/2019
Property is great the view especially.- Rebecca R , Posted: 07/16/2019
Sand Crab is a little dated, but the location (on TOP of the water) is terrific! Wall to wall views in every room of nothing but beach and water!- Mark H , Posted: 07/01/2019
Loved that was so close to the water- Patty M , Posted: 06/18/2019
Have used sand n sea exclusively for the past 4 years....always a clean home with great amenities....amd then there's the beach...- Georgia L , Posted: 05/25/2019
Love the location! It is literally right on the beach. The floor plan is nice as it has on-suites in each bedroom plus a half bath in common area. Plenty of counter space and 2 refrigerators was a big plus as we could use one just for drinks. Beds were very comfortable and closet space was awesome. The house needs some minor maintenance primarily to deck and tile in master bath. Overall it was fantastic and we really enjoyed our stay.- Melba H , Posted: 04/22/2019
Wonderful view and location. Home needs some maintenance and a good spring cleaning.- JoAnn S , Posted: 03/28/2019
When you go to the ocean you want to see and hear the waves and birds. That is what the sand crab gives you. Very well laid out property. There ate 3 on-suite bedrooms. The upstairs suites have their own decks so readers can be by themselves. We really enjoyed our individual privacy.- Kenneth R , Posted: 01/08/2019
The property is in fair condition and needs many repairs. Not quite clean enough for us! The pictures do not show the real place. It is not worth the price per night even if on the beach. No instructions on how to use DVD, etc...- Pam H , Posted: 08/23/2018
We are very sorry to hear that the vacation home didn't meet your expectations. Our staff is here 24/7 and we are always happy to promptly address any issues that arise during your stay!

We really enjoyed the sand crab, right on the beach. Having 2 iceboxes was great, the beds were super comfy..- Monica D , Posted: 11/10/2017
great location, right on the beach. and very open living area- Kevin G , Posted: 10/31/2017
Amazing location in Pirates Beach! Spent Easter Weekend here with 2 other families and was spacious and the floorplan worked perfectly! LOVED the deck overlooking the water. Home had 2 fridges and 2 stoves for easy cooking. Only items we felt needed improvement were: curtains in 2 of the rooms were needed (in case you want to sleep in late) and need a new barbecue grill-the one there was very rusty and old (but we still used with lots of foil!) and would have loved a table on the deck. Everything else was fabulous and I would love to return to Sand Crab! This was my first time booking with Sand and Sea and they were super easy to work with!- Sandra A , Posted: 04/17/2017
This house is the closest house to the beach as far as the eye can see. When you step out of the house you are on the beach. There is a large deck area for viewing the gulf and a large area under the house for parking or picniciking. My family loved the location.- William E from Deer Park Texas, Posted: 07/26/2016
Great Property! The location and beach front views were outstanding! We loved our stay here and plan to return SOON.- Kara P from Dallas, TX, Posted: 05/19/2016
If you are in search of a relaxing vacation, without having to travel to another country and enjoy a million dollar view, Sand Crab is the place for you! EXTREMELY enjoyable weekend with some close friends, doing some fishing, enjoying good food and getting some sun on a back deck that literally sits above the beach!- Anonymous from Houston, TEXAS, Posted: 04/25/2016
easy beach access, perfect for families with children- Anonymous M from Georgetown, Texas, Posted: 09/19/2015
family kids birthday trip
best view of any house on the beach... deck is actually over the beach and you can see in both directions up and down the beach!! House needs updates and repairs inside but the location of this house is wonderful.... we have already booked next year in this same house...- Anonymous from Houston, TX, Posted: 08/04/2015
This property is almost right on the beach. Each of the bedrooms has its own bathroom and there is an additional half-bath on the main floor. Great decks, too. The beach was great and a friendly neighbor even taught our grandkids to ride his surf board.- Ping from Huffman, TX, Posted: 07/14/2015
Good space, sleeps 7 or 8 but the loft is too open to put anyone but children there and even then it's open to the downstairs so it isn't practical for sleeping (unless you're the last one to bed. One of the best houses we've rented in the past four years.- Anonymous V from Houston, Posted: 08/18/2014
