Truly Wonderful

Truly, a wonderful place to stay!

From the reservation till the end, Crafty has thought of it all for one to enjoy there time away! From the comfortable bed to the relaxing shower, from the well-equipped kitchen to the comfy living room furniture 306 allows you to experience peacefulness.

Crafty is a person that cares about the people that come to his retreats to make sure they have a wonderful experience. His are not just another place to stay.

My husband captured some beautiful sunrises from the balconies of 306 on his camera, memories we will enjoy for a long time.

Thank you, Crafty, and we look forward to returning to one of your retreats on the Island!

Thanks so much, Tena!

It was a pleasure to have you stay with us and we look forward to having you back next year!

Amazing Beach Retreat
Month/Year of Visit: December/2019
Your City & State: Horseshoe Bay, Texas

We've been vacationing at The Mayan Princess for over 30 years. 306 has always been our favorite unit even before Crafty became the owner. Now it is hands down the best unit in the Mayan.

Crafty has done an incredible job with the renovation. 306 is beautiful and complete with all the touches that make you feel like you are in a 5 star beach resort room.

The property itself has also been upgraded with renovations to the pool and hot tub. The beach....never seen it more beautiful. The city cleaned it twice while we were there.

The double rainbow we saw the night before we checked out sealed the deal.

The Mayan Princess and 306 still remain our favorite place to stay on the Texas Coast.

Thank you Crafty for all your hard work to create a positively memorable experience for everyone that stays in 306.

Wow! Thank you, Susan.

And thanks for being our first guest in the new and improved Beach Retreat!

I don't even know how to begin to tell you how home away from home he has "crafted" this condo to even better than before the hurricane. I know how hard it was to rebuild perfection, but if anyone can it's Crafty.

I was honored to be the first to stay in 307, and the memories created will live on forever. It was exactly what our family needed to regenerate true happiness with us missing the matriarch of the family this year.

Everything in this home is top notch and very modern with a flare of beachy vibes. I highly recommended seeing the sunrise every day, and sunset by the bay at night. We went to Stingrays for football fun and ate at Scuttlebutts and Mikel's on the pier.

I went to the grocery store for snacks and dinners which we ACTUALLY sat down and ate together! The young 20 yr olds AND the 3 teens all insisted we eat together without me yelling to do so!

We had a fire on the beach at night, walked, ran on it daytime. There was a mermaid a couple of afternoons practicing her act, which was pretty cool. The biggest WOW factor for all of us was the UNBELIEVABLY most beautiful complete double rainbow that took my breath away. I believe that this place is truly blessed and magical.

Thank you for allowing me to stay!

Absolutly perfect New Year vacation in Crafty's #307. The renovations are great. Hot tub nice and hot. Everything at the Myan Princess is better than ever. If your headed to Crafty's remember this, "Beach access #2". Any car or truck can drive the beach. Bring firewood a shovel and chairs. You won't be sorry you did. ***** (5 stars) from this guest. TY Crafty.

Crafty's has the "WOW" factor!!!
Month/Year of Visit: July 2017

Our visit to 306 and 307 began with a preprogrammed (our number choice)keyless lock and a welcoming gift of Shari's Berries. My 5 grandkids started saying "wow" even before they entered the condos!!! There are so many choices for sleeping and eating; there are three televisions and plenty of relaxing space; patios are perfect for watching sunsets!!!! The owner has truly thought of everything! The decor is beautiful and things are labeled(we loved the labels!); he provided "extras" in case we forgot something like coffee and creamer(thank you!); he made suggestions for restaurants and fun activities like Rollin' Tide Boil and bonfire(highly recommend Shawn and Kassie and the fire dancer!!!!!!). The shrimp and crab legs were outstanding!!! We have stayed several years in 306 and 307 and each time we think it can't get any nicer but it does!!! The owner wants his guests to relax and enjoy the pool and beach which are conveniently located to his condos. The Beach Bums provided canopies so we could stay longer on the beach(thank you, Michelle!) which really are totally worth renting!!! We all loved our 2017 beach trip and declared it the best!!! Crafty, thank you for the memories. We will be back next year....

Thanks, Christina...sadly, this was our last Guest Review before Hurricane Harvey, but I'm glad that it was from you.

...looking forward to having you back again!

Leave your worries at the door, owner has thought of everything!!!
Month/Year of Visit: August 2017

This condo is beautiful, comfortable, and organized!!! We loved that we had so many options for sleeping. We have stayed here several years and are spoiled by how thoughtful the owner is to provide things you might forget like coffee and creamer and an extra boogie board. Everything is labeled so there is no question how things work! It has a keyless lock which we all loved, a wine chiller for "adult" beverages, and two patios to enjoy sunsets. It doesn't get any better than that!!!

Our stay was very relaxing
Month/Year of Visit: August 2017

Everything we could possibly need was available. the condo itself is nicely decorated and clean. I especially liked the pull out beds for my grandsons they were perfect. The two balconies with ocean views were my favorite. had easy entry to the beach and loved the pools. Renting from Richard Craft is a breeze. will be back to rent his condo.
