Your City & State: Boerne have been staying in Crafty's units for 7 years now. They are beautiful condos with every amenity you could want or need. Crafty is an awesome at communicating. We just love his amazing condos and they are our first choice when we visit the Texas coast. Thank you for providing such a wonderful beach retreat.

Thanks for that, Jodi.It's always great to have y'all back with us...can't wait to stop by Boerne for some of that Z's Wood Fired Pizza!

Perfect beach condo!
Month/Year of Visit: March 2020
Your City & State: Albertville, MN

This beach condo is beautiful! Clean and nicely furnished with everything you will need for your stay! The pictures really do not do it justice - it is even nicer in person. Everything was in perfect working order - awesome TV's, wifi was great, washer/dryer, dishwasher, plenty of USB plugins for all of our devices, large fridge and beverage cooler, even several pair of binoculars for bird watching!

The condo had more than enough room for our family of 5. The master bedroom and bathroom is AMAZING! The upper and lower decks overlooked the resort pool area with the ocean in the distance. The pool area was nice and kept very clean. It was a short walk to the beautiful beach, where we spent many hours boogie boarding and just enjoying the waves and sunshine.

Crafty made sure we had everything we needed and checked in multiple times during our stay to make sure we were doing ok. He was a great host! We would, without a doubt, stay here again if we make it down to Port Aransas in the future!

Thank you so much, Emily!We're so glad that you enjoyed time we'll try to work harder on the weather!

Oh how happy we were to be able to return to Crafty's Beach Retreat.

We were made to feel like part of the family during our 2-week stay.

The remodel looks amazing and we are so blessed to have such caring condo owners.

First chance we have had to return to Crafty's since Hurricane Harvey. 306 was beautiful before; just as beautiful now!

Love the new living room arrangement and great TVs. Gorgeous kitchen tile and lights everywhere you could possibly need them.

Crafty thinks of everything you could possibly need and make you feel like dear friends staying at their lovely condo--he always adds a personal touch.

The wonderful shower is always a plus.

We had a peaceful, relaxing stay just enjoying the beach, ocean views and lounging around.

Thanks so much for your review, Cathy!It was wonderful to have you back with again.

It was wonderful to return to Port A after a 2-year absence.

We would not stay anywhere but one of Crafty’s condos. Always top-notch, and the remodel was amazing! Crafty thinks of everything one could possibly want or need while there. ( And follow his suggestions for restaurants!).

Super nice, super clean with a beautiful ocean view is our criteria. Perfection! Plus dealing with Crafty is a delight.

Visit and you will never stay at another condo!!!

Aaaaw...thank you so much Mary Sue.It was good to have you back, as well.

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.
