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!

Street’s Retreat was very comfortable, accommodating and roomy. Great view of the ocean and only steps away from the beach. We had 8 adults and two children, and we were all very comfortable. We’ll definitely be back as soon as we can!!

Short but sweet
Our family had time for only a short stay in Crystal Beach but we had a very enjoyable and relaxing mini vacation. Street’s Retreat fit our family perfectly; the four bedrooms and four bathrooms and proximity to the beach make this a very special property. The house is so cute! The grandkids especially enjoyed the outdoor shower. Jenny was very prompt in answering any questions that I had. Stree’t Retreat is on my list for a return visit.
Thank you for your review and we are very happy that you and your family enjoyed your stay at "Street's Retreat" and look forward to you renting from us again real soon!
My family and I had a great time in your home! Everything was so easy and stress free. From arrival to departure.! Easy access to beach and “town”. The home has plenty of space for family function and I love that there is a bathroom in every room.
Very happy to have rented from you! Thank you for everything.

Appreciated the improvements
We have stayed at this house 5 years in a row. It’s got a really great layout. I love the big table perfect for hanging out and playing games. There is mostly great things to say about it but in recent years I got annoyed because there was no dishwasher soap, not even one brick. No TP, no nothing. It seemed cheap and I suggested leaving 2 bricks so at least you could do the dishes your first night there before needing to go shopping because packing dishwasher bricks isn’t something you really think about. This year when we came the house was stocked much better. There was soap at the sinks, one roll of TP and dishwashing bricks! In my review last year I said that and she responded it wasn’t affordable to do that but I felt like a few very small things would make a big difference. She took note and it was much appreciated! It took the cheap feeling away and helped everyone relax sooner by not having to set up all the junk we brought with us.
On a side note, the house was not clean when we arrived, or not as clean as it should have been. They admitted to a rush job due to a scheduling issue and refunded the cleaning deposit which was fair to me. We all make mistakes. The house had never been less than spotless in the past.
You’ll love the house! We do.
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. We always take any suggestions to make your stay more enjoyable to heart. We appreciate you choosing "Street's Retreat" for the past 5 years and we look forward to having you back next year.
