Beauty and the Beach™ is one of the most romantic getaways located in Crystal Beach, TX. You'll be welcomed to a fully functional lighthouse with beacon lit from dusk to dawn, and the only wedding venue in Texas designed and built specifically to host your beachfront wedding and reception. Unlike other beachfront properties that may only set up chairs and plastic restrooms on the beach, we have wheelchair accessible elevator and restrooms, covered and wind screened area and all systems in place to run the event even if weather happened to be not so shiny.

We are open and accepting reservations for 2022 and 2023 events

 

You are welcome to book us for your wedding ceremony and a reception for up to 100 guests, with an overnight honeymoon stay for two or more nights for just married couple and up to 8 more guests. There is a king honeymoon suite with an amazing ocean view for new husband and wife and three more queen beds for their guests, one of queen beds is located upstairs right in the lighthouse tower and enjoys the best view.

Besides wedding events, we would be happy to host your anniversary or serve as a romantic vacation getaway to reset your mind / work away from home*. Beauty and the Beach™ is well isolated from other properties and provides a ton of privacy, million dollar 360° views, two isolated laptop-friendly work spaces, high speed internet, and a fully stocked kitchen with two large fridges so you can spend more time enjoying the beach and the ocean during the day, and stargazing at night with less trips to the grocery store.

Booking & Pricing

Booking a wedding at our lighthouse is a simple 2 step process:

STEP 1 - Book and pay lodging for 2 or more nights at VRBO

We require at least 2 nights stay for up to 10 overnight guests with every wedding. This step blocks the dates for you and ensures that you have enough time to learn systems, decorate, run rehearsals and enjoy honeymoon after a long wedding day.  We suggest the night before the wedding day and the night after, plus as many more nights as you want to enjoy honeymoon on the beach. This step must be paid at VRBO at the time of booking or they have an option of installments plan via Affirm. VRBO remit lodging taxes, provide accidental damage insurance and take care of cancellations as needed.

Availability and lodging prices fluctuate daily depending on seasonality, weekend vs weekday and supply and demand for beachfront rental properties in the area. The only way to check availability, current prices and lock-in todays pricing is at VRBO using the button bellow.
