Awesome Beach House
Overall our stay at ‘Anchors Away’ was nothing short of wonderful! The house is very cute
and comfortable and has provided essential cooking items. The beds are comfortable and
everything was clean. The top patio is wonderful for early morning and late night sitting. The
lower patio area is great for all around hangout and cooking. Most of all the fenced in area is
great for your furry family members. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a
good time at Crystal Beach!

Beautiful, clean, and well furnished.
Excellent communication from the owner prior to booking and through our stay. We loved
having the fenced in area for the kids to play outside. We had six adults and four kids here
and there was plenty of room.

Best Beach House
Everything was great. The house was beautiful and felt like home. We had a great time. The
beds were really comfortable, and the rooms had plenty of space. We also liked the outside
shower, we were able to clean up before going in the house. Thank you.

Beautiful home with above and beyond amenities!
This home was perfect for our family. The owners did an awesome job designing this house
to use every inch of space. They provided so many cooking tools, pots, pans, and even had
spices for our use. The beach is not far down the road however you dont have much of a
view of it from the house. We didnt mind that and truly enjoyed the downstairs area with the
BBQ pit and large sitting area. The fenced in yard and playground was great for our dog and
I know our kids will enjoy it when we return to this house in April! Would recomend to friends

My wife and I spent Christmas week 2019 with our kids and grandkids here. Everything was
great. We have rented from the same owners in the past and will continue to do so. While
this house is in walking distance to the beach there is only walking and golf cart access. This
does limit the traffic through the neighborhood though. The beach access is only (2) roads
away so it’s not really an inconvenience. Overall had a great time with family.

My husband, our little pup, and I stayed in Anchor's Away for the entire month of February.
The home was bright and cheery, decorated nicely, and was very comfortable. The kitchen
was well stocked with all that we needed, and the home was just a short walk down the road
to Crystal Beach. Roku, the TV setup, took a bit to get used to, but Mike was very prompt in
stopping by to give us a tutorial when we asked. On warm days we enjoyed sitting on the
deck, and we loved our twice daily beach walks. The neighbors were very friendly, giving us
recommendations on where to eat and what to see when visiting Galveston. Our goal was to
leave the bitter cold of Illinois for the month of February, and we were very pleased that we
did find a perfect spot to relax and enjoy some warmer weather.

Great House and perfect weekend!
This was a great property for my husband, 6 year old daughter, and 11 month old twins.
There was a fenced in playset and room for my daughter to ride her scooter. There was
even a smoker there too! Would be great for a group to sit and enjoy the underneath area.
Close to the strip center for a great restaurant, the liquor store, donut shop, and just a few
minutes from the Big Store. Great location and the property manager was so easy to work
with, very responsive, and helpful. Would definitely recommend staying to anyone! Thanks
for a great weekend :)

Truely a home away from home.
What a lovely home. I felt more comfortable here than at any condo or hotel I can remember.
A great location near shopping, restaurants and only a short walk to the beach. The locals
were incredibly kind, often stopping by on our walks to chat and to offer help finding our way
or answering questions. If we could have stayed all month we certainly would have. Every bit
as described and more. We'll see y'all next year.

made the process smooth - we didn't have any issues. The house was clean and well
stocked, everything you need is on hand. My 8-year-old son loved the swing set in the yard.
We had friends stay over for one night with their dog and it was a great setup for a pet. Easy
walk to the beach!

We absolutely loved this house! It is beautifully decorated, impeccably kept up and the
owners were amazing! They went way above and beyond to make sure that we had
everything we needed, including getting a highchair seat for our baby as we were traveling
from out of state. We were very surprised to find so many appliances in the kitchen and the
house was very childproof. If I ever make my way back to Crystal Beach, this is definitely the
place where I will stay! I also think that this is an amazing house because of the location to
the beach, the neighbors were awesome, and the backyard is fenced in with a playset. I
couldn’t think of anything this house is missing! I highly recommend.

Great place for kids and dogs
Fenced yard and play set was a lifesaver considering the gloomy weather that prevented us
from spending a lot of time on the actual beach. Golf cart only beach access in
neighborhood means reduced traffic, which was nice with kids as well. You can access beach
with vehicle 2 streets over. Can’t think of anything the cabin didn’t do or have- it was perfect.
We’ll be back.

about his life. There were many good times over the years, when he would come home to
see me and my brother. All left on Saturday. Our daughters came and we all had one large
pot of Gumbo, potato salad. None was left. We even had a birthday party for my g grandson.

Tastefully Furnished and Very Tidy
We stayed here with another couple and enjoyed it very much. The layout of the house is
good for the size. The master and one of the guest rooms both have King beds...which is
hard to find sometime. There is a third bedroom with many bunks. The furnishings are of nice
quality, not kitchy like a lot of beach homes. The home is well appointed with kitchen utensils,
pots & pans and a good blender. Wonderful big island in kitchen that everyone loves and
hangs out. Good WiFi, too. The location is great for Bolivar Peninsula as you can walk to
several places such as Family Dollar, Liquor Store, Ocean Grille Restaurant, Dannay's
Donuts and the Big Store (grocery store plus) is walkable but just a bit further. The street
seemed quiet though there is some construction down the street but we couldn't hear it. You
can easily walk to the beach where there is a beach access for foot traffic and golf carts. You
can rent golf carts and drive on the beach and anywhere except the main highway, though
you can cross over the main highway. The only cons I would mention are that if I returned I
would be fully prepared to stay on Bolivar Peninsula. The ferry isn't too bad, but will eat up 1-
2 hours (total) of any day you cross to Galveston. It is free though. The only item with the
house is that I think the shower valve in the master shower needs to be adjusted because we
never had HOT water...only tepid. The other bathroom did and the kitchen did, so we figured
it must have been a setting in the valve. It was very cold and windy while we were there and a
hot shower would have gone a long way. (I didn't contact the owner about this and I am sure
they would have been right on it, but we just dealt with it.) Lastly, not that anyone needs to
go to the beach to watch TV, but the TV situation is not for all. I know a lot of people that
couldn't have figured it out since it's through a Roku. I was able to sort it out for the most
part, but we really wanted to watch a playoff game and we ended up going to Tiki Beach Bar
& Grill which was a low-key place, BUT had a big wood fire going in the fireplace which
was awesome because it was so cold and windy. So, that worked out. All in all, I would stay
here again. If we had had better weather we really could have enjoyed the full potential of the
house and the area.

Enjoyed our last minute stay. Wish property had a good deep cleaning but overall very nice
stay. Will more than likely book again.

Everything was good with property. Tried to contact manager the first full day we were there
about internet not working. After 2 1/2 weeks we never heard from manager. Internet was
only out for one day. I would think a good manager would check with renters at least once.

House is awesome. Great location.
Process was simple and easy. Only problem was couldn’t get a hold of property manager for
an item left behind.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Anchors Away.
The set up of the house and kitchen were perfect for us. The decor of the house is beautiful.
The fenced yard was great for our dog. She could come and go from the yard as she
pleased. We only had two complaints: (1) The water in the master bath shower never got hot,
only warm (2) The stools in the kitchen are not comfortable to sit in. The proximity to the
beach and all the other amenities certainly over ride these two minor imperfections. Thanks
for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Nice, Well-appointed Vacation House
Nicely decorated home with many amenities. Property is exactly as described and pictured,
but what really surprised us was the number of stairs one has to climb to get up to the house.
Very exting when you have to make several trips up and down to arrive and then again to
depart. That being said, I was grateful for the very sturdy handrails! A lift would be a GREAT
addition, if only for 'stuff' and not for people. Very nice linens on the beds, though the beds
were too hard for us. If you need a less firm bed, bring a cushion, pad or sleeping bag to add
to the top of the beds. Well-stocked kitchen, though a few of the pans need to be replaced.
Very nice in appearance, but the metal chairs at the bar are brutal to sit on for more than a
few minutes. Upon arrival, everything was clean and neatly arranged. Very welcoming.
Though the beach is not within walking distance when you have a youngster in tow, it was a
short drive to the end of the street where we were able to park our car and walk onto the
beach. Overall, we were pleased with our choice. We reviewed so many homes and Anchors
Away came out on top for meeting almost all of our criteria. It was a good fit for our small
family of five.

No power for almost 48 hours
Renting the property was easy but there was no back up plan in place for power outages.
We had to cross over on the ferry to seek other accommodation because there was 3 small
children in our party. Most of the people on the island had back up generators. Very
expensive trip for me
