Wrights retreat
We were very pleased with this property. It is a nicely equipped very spacious cabin which
appears to be less than a year old. It was a little to far from the beach to walk but there was
vehicle beach access at the end of the street. The only negative was that there happened to
be a couple of events, Jeep Weekend and a MAGA going on during our stay and the beach
was packed with a crowd that was not really family appropriate.

Wonderful weekend getaway
The house was perfect there were 12 of us total staying and the house was the perfect size.
With 3 bathrooms we never had a line waiting. We were close enough to the beach to ride our
bikes or walk. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony drinking coffee and visiting. We would love to
stay here again.

Wow! We absolutely loved our stay! I had many questions prior to our arrival and the owners
were so quick in replying to each message I sent! The house has EVERYTHING! By far the
most supplied Beach home we’ve stayed in! The Upstairs is amazing! Perfect for teens or a
family to have their own private quarters! We will def rent his home again! It’s very close to
grocery stores, restaurants, golf cart rentals and the donut shop is delicious!!!!! We highly
recommend!!!!!

Great Stay
We really enjoyed our time at the Family Fun House in Port Bolivar. The location was great,
with an easy walk to the beach, and the house had everything we needed. We had an
internet/WiFi issue when we first arrived, but Amy & Mike were quick to reply and fixed the
issue quickly. It’s a perfect house for families that want to get away from the hustle and bustle,
but still have access to all that Galveston has to offer by taking the free ferry. Hoping to come
back in the future!

The property was specious, clean and had everything we wanted. We had a group of 13 and
enough beds for everyone. The kids got to play in the fenced playground while we ate at the
bar. The beach was just a few minutes near the house walking and there was store near by
where you can buy food or gas. My experience here was amazing overall definitely exceeded
my expectations.

Spring break 2019
What a beautiful house!!! It was so beautiful and had literally every single thing we needed. It
was the perfect distance from the beach as well which was a huge plus. I loved the fact that
they had a kid play area upstairs and a huge kitchen which was perfect for family meals. The
bedrooms were so cozy and the beds were ALL so very comfortable we all slept great. The
balcony was perfect for enjoying coffee and watching the sunrise and downstairs had an
awesome grilling area as well as a play area for the kiddos. I honestly couldn't find a single
thing that I had an issue with. Cleaning crew did an excellent job as well when we arrived
everything was spotless which was very nice. We will for sure be booking again and we were
very sad to leave today. The Hooper crew

Perfect Getaway
Pictures don't due it justice. If you are looking to get away for the week or just the weekend
this is the house to do it. You will find everything you need all you have to do is pull up a
cooler and relax on the patio or down below the house at the "bar". Its far enough off the
beach and highway that you don't have to deal with all the noise. We will be back for sure.

The house was really enjoyable. The kitchen is well supplied with every dish and utensil you
could need. The beds were comfortable. Washer and dryer worked great. The showers were
clean and great. Towels, extra blankets, everything was supplied. Lovely spot. Kids loved the
swings. I can't complain about a single thing! The price was great too. We couldn't have done
it had it been more. Excellent place to stay and just a few minutes walk to the beach. Loved it!

It’s a really great home for large gatherings. So much to do in the area. You’ll be happy you
came
The property is beautiful. The house is stocked with everything you can imagine. It’s a great
area to visit. So much to do if you love the ocean. I’d definitely go again. So much room for a
large group. There were only 3 of us and I started feeling like I should have just invited
everyone to come. It’s a perfect large gathering place. The only warning I have is
that bedding was washed with highly fragranced laundry soaps. For me that is an issue
because of asthema but honestly most people love things to smell pretty. If your an asthmatic
bring bedding with you but still come the house is really great! You won’t be sorry.

Such a Great Time!
This was everything we hoped for and more. The house is beautiful, clean, and set up for
children. There was plenty of towels, linens, and pillows for everyone. The outside of the
house was just as nice as the inside, with a large selection of lounge chairs, picnic tables, and
even an outdoor shower. It was also super close to the beach. It We didn't bother getting a
parking pass because it is only a short 5 minute walk to get there. Crystal Beach is more
secluded and quiet than Galveston, so it felt like we had the beach to ourselves! Everyone
had a wonderful time and we are talking about going back. I am very skeptical of a place that
has so many glowing reviews, but trust me, this is worth it.

Beautiful home
We really enjoyed our stay. We come to Galveston every year for the Lone Star Motorcycle
Rally but choose to stay over on Bolivar Peninsula. There were 8 adults in our party and this
house had plenty of room and then some for all of us. This home is absolutely gorgeous. You
will find everything you need here. It is so comfortable that we hated having to leave. The
owners are very nice and courteous and are available for help with anything you may need.
The house is located very close to many stores and restaurants as well as the ferry
which was great for us because we went into Galveston every day. I definitely recommend
staying at this beautiful home. We will be renting again for sure.

Pictures don't do this property justice. It is more beautiful in person! We rented this house for
a quick 2 night stay before our cruise. Great location with a quick walk to the beach. A coffee
shop at the end of the road and a Family Dollar the same distance. We are 10 miles to the
free car ferry to Galveston which is very convenient. We watched dolphins as we rode it! This
house has made for a great start to our vacation! I would absolutely rent this house again in
the future!

We enjoyed the house & had lots of space to move around without feeling crowded with our
group of 16. We did not love all the vehicle traffic along the beach so for that only reason, we
won’t return to Crystal Beach. Maybe because it was Memorial Weekend but, for the space &
sleeping accommodations it was what we needed. Thank you!
