by Kimberly on 11/21/2020
my family had a great time, the house was amazing!!  the only problem we encountered was that the sand from the beach entrance, made it impossible to park in the driveway.

Relaxing Vacation

by Lori on 11/20/2020
We had the best time. Beach House was wonderful and couldn't ask for better weather. Can't wait to go back.

Great rental on the beach

by John on 11/17/2020
Right on the beach and clean and new. Check in/out easy. Nice place! We recommend it. Downsides were: house deck very close (15 feet) to two other beach houses (but I think this may be typical). House also very close to busy traffic on TX87 but a ocean sounds white noise maker is provided and windows are pretty soundproof. All in all a great rental.

Sea Breezes and Sand Castles

by Karen on 11/16/2020
The house was wonderful with great amenities. With multiple families, the upstairs with its own living room and kitchenette was an added bonus. It was perfect for our stay. The location to the beach and the fenced in yard with direct access from the stairs for our dog was great. We were counting on having a pack-n-play available but couldn't find one. After a quick call to the management office, one was delivered promptly. Our stay was during the off season so we only had a few nights when we could hear neighbors since the houses are so close together. This was the only issue but wasn't a deal breaker.

5 stars all around

by Monika on 11/12/2020
This is one of those times when you would rather not give a great review because you want to keep this place to yourself. The house is beautiful and the layout is just perfect. There is so much more provided than is stated on the website. Everything you could want and need was there and then some. The place was very clean. The beach is a few steps away and was quiet and private. We had a wonderfully relaxing weekend and wished we could have stayed longer.

Excellent - 5 Stars

by Tom on 11/12/2020
We had the pleasure of staying at Bella Luna on Chrystal Beach. We looked on line at the property and thought it was great. Upon our arrival we were blown away. The check in was so easy. The house is equipped with a code box to enter. This was so easy and secure. Previously we would have to go to the Reno office to check in. The house exceeded our expectations. This house worked in every way. Very comfortable and decor was amazing. Everything just worked views were amazing walk out the door and you are on this beautiful beach. We are planning our next trip.

Beach Front Relaxation

by Janet on 11/12/2020
The living area is spacious with plenty of windows for Beautiful views.Outdoor areas are perfect for relaxing or outdoor cooking. The outdoor furiture is awesome. Comfortable beds and great Tv's in each bedroom. We had a great time with our friends. We would request this property again!

Just what we needed!!!

by Lisbeth on 11/09/2020
We just came back from a week getaway at Serenity and it was the perfect ending to a long awaited vacation!! We had booked our getaway back in August but had to cancel because of Hurricanes Marco and Laura. By then, the communication we received from the Bolivar Vacations staff was outstanding, they kept us informed in a very professional, frequent and cordial way. Excellent customer service. We finally were able to use our days for the week of US elections and we couldn't have made a better decision. This house was perfect for relaxing in the middle of all the chaos. The house is right in front of the beach and even though the weather was not too friendly for actually getting into the water, the easy access was perfect for walks at any time of the day. The front deck was our permanent location! Reading, having a glass of wine while enjoying the sound of the waves or just for sunbathing, the deck was perfect. The kitchen is spacious, comfortable and fully equipped. It definitely has everything you need for cooking and entertaining any crowd. The rooms and bathrooms were super clean and very comfortable. And the reclining couches in the living room were the best way to watch the news or movies at night. All in all, we had an excellent time and will definitely book again and enjoy future getaways at these properties.

SeaQuell! A perfect vacation home.

by Donlyn on 11/03/2020
We have rented this perfect beach house for three years in a row. We love it. We will continue to vacation at this property. This home has everything anyone needs to have a wonderful vacation. The deck overlooking the beach has nice deck furniture to sit and enjoy the beach, its furnished with nice cookware, lots of TV's with lots of options of things to watch.

Very nice and well equipped home.

by Scott on 11/03/2020
Very nice and well equipped home. The one drawback was the lingering smell of cigarette smoke. We enjoyed our stay. Thanks so much.

Awesome beach house with beautiful views

by Alyssa on 11/02/2020
This beach house has it all - great ocean view and beach access, well-thought out layout for kitchen and living room, large game room with tons of beds for guests and kids. Definitely an awesome place to stay with lots of people and kids. We really enjoyed staying here with our family and the kids loved playing on the beach.

Really special place.

by Scott on 11/02/2020
Really special place. The house is right up against the Ocean with amazing sweeping views. The house itself was clean and stocked with all the needed amenities!

Girls Getaway

by Donna on 11/01/2020
There was 7 women staying in the Mariposa & it had everything we needed & more. The house is beautifully decorated & comfortable! The owners are very friendly & helpful & even helped carry our things upstairs! The only suggestions I have is maybe one more chair in the living room & for our marathon card games, cushions for the bar stools. The weather wasn’t great but that didn’t stop us from having a great time & a much needed getaway! THANK YOU!!

Great view!

by Darla on 10/30/2020
Second time staying here. Nice house with everything you need to be comfortable. Great views all around.

Deck that over looks the beach wonderful

by Michael on 10/28/2020
The house is absolutely beautiful we had plenty of space and plenty of towels.The deck that over looks the beach wonderful.No need to bring any tables or chairs it’s more than enough.The only thing that we regret is that we didn’t stay longer. I’m going to rent it again and again.

Love this house!

by Erica on 10/28/2020
My family and I had an amazing weekend at this house! We were right on the beach with beautiful views! The house was clean and had everything we needed. Can’t wait to go back!

Peaceful and Stunning

by Cynthia on 10/27/2020
We fell in love with Port Bolivar! It’s a quiet, calm area. Not too touristy but close enough to Galveston for fun. The house was well stocked. The porch was equipped with chairs and a really comfy couch to enjoy the sunrise each morning. We are on the porch most of the time so we could enjoy the waves crashing ashore. There were plenty of beds for our big family to spread out. Washer and dryer so you don’t have to pack dirty clothes up. Bring bug spray... the gulf is home to Texas sized mosquitoes. Sand flees are common too so lather up before swimming in the gulf. Bring your buckets and poles to fish from shore. Gather shells to take home as souvenirs.

Amazing house

by Berrie on 10/27/2020
This was an amazing house with a perfect view of the water. The house has a big front porch overlooking the beach and water. We will definitely be making this an annual stay. Bolivar Rentals were amazing to work with after we had to cancel due to Hurricane Laura . We will be back!

Friendly and helpful! House was amazing perfect for our family!

by Jessica on 10/25/2020
You won’t regret booking with them! Friendly and helpful! House was amazing perfect for our family! We will be renting again!

Perfect Property

by Kim on 10/22/2020
Perfect property with lots of space and amazing views. We travelled with 14 people and dogs. The property had plenty of space inside and out for everyone and never felt crowded. It is perfectly set for entertaining! Decks are amazing and the set up on both upstairs and downstairs decks were amazing. Property management was so easy to work with before and during our stay. Extremely response and accommodating. Hope to be back soon!

Cannot wait to come back

by Leanna on 10/21/2020
Had a great time . Cannot wait to come back next year

Everything I expected and more

by Joann on 10/21/2020
Loved our stay, the house was everything I expected and more. Plenty of room for our family. We will definitely rent again.

Relaxing at the perfect FLIP FLOP!

by Donna on 10/19/2020
We stayed 4 nights at Flip Flop and what an enjoyable time we had! The beach home has everything you could possibly need for a stay away from home. Exceptionally clean, the BEST mattresses, beautiful view of the gulf, plenty of linens in all bathrooms and large TV’s in living area and all bedrooms. Lovely large balcony viewing the gulf with excellent tables, chairs, and lounge chairs. Plus a smaller balcony with chairs facing the intercostal canal which can be accessed from 2 large bedrooms. This property has an unbelievable set up for your furry friends! Enclosed area with a lot of running room. 3 king bedrooms is a big plus plus several other bedding options. Large enough for a big family/friends but enjoyed having this large beach home for 5 of us. The owners were fantastic! Always available and extremely pleasant to work with. We will return to Flip Flop!

Just what we needed!

by Robin on 10/19/2020
This was our 6th stay at Splash as and always it was clean, well stocked, and very peaceful. Shelling was amazing after the storm and ours kids had a great time fishing.

Dragonfly. LOVED this home!!

by Sharon on 10/19/2020
This home is absolutely beautiful!! It will accommodate your large group with sleeping, visiting on the large deck, sitting under the house while bbqing, the living room has 3 large couches and 2 comfortable chairs, the kitchen will seat 16 to eat, kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, plates, cups, silverware, the upstairs room will sleep 10 alone if you have kids with you this would be a great hang out room for them to sleep, play ping pong, play video games or just watch TV!! We only had a small group but LOVED this home!! Thanks for a beautiful week at the beach in your beautiful home!!

Great Vacay

by Dennis on 10/19/2020
Clean, great view, close to Galveston, everything you need. Family came in from Iowa and were so impressed. We could not have picked a better place

Beach Quest. We are already planning a return visit

by Carol on 10/15/2020
Beautiful home. We had a lovely stay. We are already planning a return visit.

Seabatical was perfect!

by Amanda on 10/13/2020
We took a girls trip to get away for some quiet time. Seabatical was absolutely perfect! Such a great space. The kitchen island was an amazing conversation place. Everything was what we expected and more! We had quick responses from the staff. We will definitely be back!

Perfect amount of space for our family of 7

by Emily on 10/11/2020
Great location. Perfect amount of space for our family of 7. Will definitely stay here again.

Dragonfly -- It was a great vacation!

by Carolyn on 10/10/2020
Dragonfly was perfect for our family. Our girls loved the loft and the ping pong table. The view from the deck was awesome and with the beach just steps away it was a great vacation. We will definitely be going back to Dragonfly.

Fabulous house

by Diana on 10/09/2020
We had a wonderful time at the beachfront home Moonstone. The house was clean and well equipped. Though we did not do any meal preparation in the kitchen it was definitely well equipped to do so. The beds were so comfy. The living room was cozy and welcoming. Of course we stayed on the porch or on the beach the most. Love this place and will be back again.

We loved our stay at Mariposa!

by Kelsey on 10/09/2020
We loved our stay at Mariposa! Thank you for allowing us to come into your home for some much needed R&R!

Loved loved loved

by Susan on 10/09/2020
Great as usual but might try newer one of George’s next time. Glad we left before Delta hit. Unfortunately missed 2 days at beginning of trip. ☹️ Due to Beta. Great place highly recommended

Awesome Beach front home

by S. on 10/08/2020
Location, location! Step off the steps and the beach is right there! The kitchen is well stocked, we cooked every meal and didn’t need a thing. The house is comfortable, beautiful and brand new. One king bed is a plush pillow top providing a soft bed and the other king is firm. They really thought of everything, in every room. Fishing is awesome right off the beach, sunrises and coffee on the deck and sunsets are incredible. We laughed, played games and distance worked a couple of days and the internet rocked for all three of us. We also brought the dogs and they had a blast playing in the surf with us. We will be back! Thank you for providing such a lovely and thoughtful house.


by Georgina on 10/07/2020
We loved staying here and I already long to return! Solana is beautifully decorated with thoughtful touches like artwork on the walls and various beachy knickknacks. It was spacious and plenty big enough for us all. The deck was my favorite though—the ocean is practically at your front door! The owners were quick to respond and went out of their way to make sure our stay was perfect. When we arrived on Friday evening, I couldn’t find a wine bottle opener. They showed up at our door twenty minutes later with one in hand. George said we couldn’t possibly spend a Friday night at the beach without a wine bottle opener (these are my kinda people ). Thank you very much for an outstanding stay!

fantasic stay

by Mark on 10/07/2020
My family and I had a fabulous time at Splash ! We will be returning for sure! The staff at Bolivar vacations was awesome! AS we had to reschedule our vacation from June! Was worth the wait !


by Nancy on 10/04/2020
We really enjoyed our stay at Bella Luna. It is the perfect place to relax and unwind. Love the deck as it is wonderful to watch the waves and enjoy the sunsets.

Excellent - 5 Stars

by Julie on 10/04/2020
House was very clean and well stocked. Our third stay in this beautiful home. The sunrise from the deck was amazing. We plan to book again!!

Sea Dreams and Love bug nightmares

by Halena on 09/27/2020
We found Sea Dreams a fabulous beach rental. The Front row location was great and we found the house very well equipped. Our only complaints were that the king mattress/pillows in the master was too soft. There were no issues with other beds. Unfortunately on day two of our stay the wind changed and we were invaded by love bugs! A September spectacle indeed. That aside we very much enjoyed our stay and hope to return.

25th Anniversary

by Monique on 09/23/2020
The house and the view were amazing! The house was very clean and had everything we needed. Tropical storm Beta cut our trip short and I didn’t get my bonfire on the beach but we had a lovely time and will be back!!

A pleasant stay

by Robert on 09/23/2020
Everything was clean and in order. A good time was had by all.

Awesome beach front home

by Neel on 09/23/2020
Well-furnished beachfront home. Great getaway for family, friends and fido.

Beach front oasis

by Paige on 09/22/2020
The house was perfect, clean, airy, and cozy. The outdoor shower was a great amenity; no sand tracked into the house; YAY! We didn't want to leave and we are already looking forward to our next visit.

Bodacious beach stay!

by David on 09/22/2020
Superb property and outstanding customer service. Our family loved being so close to the beach. We had everything we needed for our meals in the fully stocked kitchen and it was great to be able to wash our beach towels after the many, many trips to the beach. The kids absolutely loved the upstairs loft where many games of ping pong were played. We highly recommend and would definitely rent again.

Very nice, great location

by Reggie on 09/22/2020
3 beds, 3 baths, roomy and well stocked. Perfect for girls get away. This was our second stay here and we loved it. There were very few drinking glasses and not a lot of space in bedrooms for hanging clothes or folding clothes but other than that, it was great.

Stunning New Home

by Amanda on 09/21/2020
A beautiful new home on Bolivar! It’s fully equipped with everything you need for a relaxing stay. This trip we were able to experience the Dragonfly migration. Bolivar is our favorite getaway!

Family Vacation

by Stephanie on 09/21/2020
Great location. Great ocean views. Having two levels was great it allowed my parents to have their own separate space. Having balconies on both levels was also great. George was very responsive when we had any questions. There were a few issues with the televisions and the internet but George took care of those. The cell reception is intermittent at times, but I guess since you are on vacation you are trying to get a way from things anyway but we did have several calls dropped or could not make calls at times. If we are in the area again we will look to come back here.

Above Average - 4 Stars

by Jack on 09/17/2020
Excellent location Beach front Slight hwy. noise About 7 miles to Crystal Beach Accommodations were ok

Exceeded our Expectations

by Marco on 09/16/2020
The location is perfect, the house is brand new and laid out perfect for the amount of people it can hold. We had 4 couples and 4 kids with more than enough space. the large dining area and enough couches for everyone. The deck had enough chairs for all of us. Just very well thought out. Being beachfront helps a lot and the views were perfect. We will definitely be coming back to this house and with new kids coming every year it has has plenty of room to spare. the one criticism or suggestion would be to add a second fridge and maybe an ice maker.

Will be booking again !

by Mark on 09/14/2020
Second time staying there! It was great. No issues at all. Will be booking again !

Great stay, fantastic house

by Victoria on 09/13/2020
Plenty of room for two families with kids and pets. Well stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, great layout. So nice to be right next to the beach! Responsive team and friendly owners. We were very pleased with this experience and would definitely stay again.

Fabulous Beach Rental!

by Lisa on 09/13/2020
We stayed at Bella Luna for 6 nights over Labor Day weekend and had a fabulous time. The house is wonderful with a spectacular beach view. Nice and quiet area on the beach. Highly recommend! We will definitely be staying there again!

Marvelous Mariposa

by Debra on 09/13/2020
Super comfortable house with all amenities! Fabulous location for enjoying beach! Have stayed here before and will request this house again!

Awesome Beach House!!

by Michelle on 09/11/2020
We loved our stay at the beach house!! Location was fantastic.. the house was super clean with a great layout and everything needed!!

Fabulous 50th

by Cami on 09/08/2020
The house was perfect for my 50th birthday. The stairs were a pain in my legs, but that’s my fault. The beach access was perfect and we will definitely be back.

Wonderful vacation!

by Audrey on 09/07/2020
The house was in a perfect location and it felt like we had the beach to ourselves. The kitchen has everything you need to cook meals. It was nice to have a bathroom for each bedroom and there was plenty of room for everyone. The deck was so relaxing to sit and have coffee. The beach had tons of shells and sea glass which was a blast to hunt for. We were also able to catch redfish right in front of the house. We can’t wait to come back!!

Our stay at Flip Flop was amazing!

by Irma on 09/07/2020
We enjoyed an amazing family vacation on Bolivar. The accommodations were very nice and everyone who helped us with reservations and such were very kind and helpful! Thank you!

We loved Seabatical!

by Tanya on 09/04/2020
We loved everything about our stay at Seabatical! The home is right at the corner of the beach access road so it was easy for us to get on/off the beach. We rented a golf cart which made it even better. The home is very well stocked, had comfortable beds and great deck furniture. In this crazy time of COVID being at the beach made the world feel normal again. We will definitely be back!

Definitely be revisiting this one

by Joseph on 09/02/2020
We had such a fun time at this house! It was a great size for our group of 8. It was clean upon arrival and the beds were super comfortable. We loved watching the waves roll in in the morning while we drank coffee on the deck. We will definitely be revisiting this one.

Rescheduling due to hurricanes

by Jessica on 08/30/2020
Hello, unfortunately, we didn't get to stay last week due to the 2 hurricanes in the gulf. I was contacted by Kerstin on Sunday 8/23. She let me know that the property was deemed unsafe at this time and we would be able to reschedule. I'm looking at the calendar now and confirming with my boss when we'd be able to do that. Hopefully soon! I really appreciated the communication from Kerstin and the others from this property. Leading up to Sunday we had been watching the weather closely and wasn't sure what to make of it. The team communicated with me regularly. We had the car packed up on Sunday night when I received Kerstin's text. Of course we were bummed abt the trip being canceled. But, better safe than sorry. And we are looking forward to rescheduling for this same property. It looks really great.

Beautiful home right on the water!

by Lynette on 08/28/2020
Had such a wonderful time with my family here! Everything was really clean and it had everything we needed. The beds were super comfortable and every TV had the capability to watch Netflix, prime, etc. It was steps from the water so it was so convenient to haul our beach items back and forth especially since we have two little girls who needed a little break from the sun. Highly recommend this house and look forward to staying here again!

My family had a blast.

by Donna on 08/26/2020
My family had a blast. Weekend wasn't long enough, house was very nice and we had everything we could imagine. Praying for minimal impact from Hurricane Laura. We are looking forward to being repeat customers. All of the neighbors were great.

Time of our Lives

by Jodilyn on 08/26/2020
We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary with family an friends. Every part of it was perfect. The house was better than expected. We are already making plans for another stay.

Fantasy Football Draft Weekend!

by Joel on 08/26/2020
Ended up with 11 guys staying. LOTS of room, perfect view of beach, only steps away, great downstairs space for grilling and hangout, this location is a no brainer for a getaway, had no issues with internet, there are 4 nice TVs in the house (only used the one in Living room and the one in Loft for a couple video games)... Ping Pong Table was broken as far as both sides not being leveled, one of our guys was able to rig it with some rope to flatten the sides out, but I don’t think we used it... We would love to return at some point!


by Jeff on 08/25/2020
We wanted sun, sand and the water. We got that plus so much more. We loved the location of the house. The people on the pennisula were so nice and inviting. The food was so delicious and we loved sitting on the beech all day long. We can't wait to go back! Miss the sounds and atmosphere already.


by Brandi on 08/25/2020
This house was absolutely perfect! It had everything. If I lived at the beach, I would want a house just like this. The views and distance from the beach were perfect. Can't wait to go back.


by Susan on 08/21/2020
We loved our stay in Crystal Beach. The views from the house were spectacular. We loved that we could see the water from the kitchen while preparing meals as well as have our meals out on the deck with high deck chairs and table. There was plenty of room and it felt like home away from home. We miss it already.

2020 Family Vacation

by Charles on 08/21/2020
The rental was everything we expected. I recommend this choice 100%. Thank you for the beautiful place to enjoy our Texas Beaches.

Great house

by Melissa on 08/19/2020
The location is absolutely perfect! The kitchen is fully stocked with what you need. Size of house was great for the people we had. House was clean. The front door gets stuck so you have to mess with knob a little to exit and the lock on bathroom door doesn’t lock but other than that it was great. Will definitely stay again!


by Deanne on 08/19/2020
This home is perfect. Very comfortable, everything you need and the best views. The home is just a few steps away from a more quiet part of the beach. I’d live here full time if possible. We are planning at our next stay.

Simply amazing

by Brenda on 08/18/2020
Not our first time to stay w bolivar vacations and definitely will not be our last. Home very clean and accommodating.

Great stay!

by Monica on 08/15/2020
Loved our stay! The upstairs porch lights were not working.

Beautiful well equipped house on a quiet section of the beach

by Courtney on 08/15/2020
Beautiful well equipped house on a quiet section of the beach. Huge front porch for sitting out and watching the ocean. Would definitely return.

Our Mini-vacation - house was perfect in a perfect location

by Elizabeth on 08/14/2020
We enjoyed our stay, the house was very comfortable and clean. I just had one concern which mostly likely was just me but when I went to bed, I could feel the house move weird I know but other than that little feeling, it was perfect in a perfect location. WE will definitely rent it again.

Seabatical beach home was absolutely perfect!

by Jill on 08/12/2020
The Seabatical beach home was absolutely perfect! It was beautifully decorated & had everything you could possibly need for your stay. The views from the back deck were stunning. I will definitely be visiting the Seabatical again. Thanks for helping make our weekend getaway wonderful.

Beautiful House, Perfect for a large group!

by Maureen on 08/12/2020
This property is beautiful!! The 4 rooms with king sized beds and the 10 twin beds upstairs meant that everyone got a good night sleep and had plenty of room. The house was updated, clean and was stocked with toilet paper, soaps, and everything we needed. My family members raved about how nice this house was. It was amazing!! Definitely will stay again.

could not get closer to beach

by Dixie on 08/10/2020
Excellent stay. Comfortable beds, kitchen packed with all essential cookware, bathroom set up great - each quest room has their own, could not get closer to beach, great views, living room furniture very comfortable. We’ve been traveling to Galveston for 4 years in a row, this is the only house that I would stay in again. We do plan on booking another stay at Maiposa!

Great location on a quiet beach

by Garrett on 08/10/2020
House was great. Clean and new. Great location on a quiet beach.

The property is Great and the folks we dealt were very nice.

by Kenny on 08/09/2020
The property is Great and the folks we dealt were very nice. Thanks very much. I am a Realtor and know what it takes to have a Great property. It would have been helpful to know all that was available at the property in the kitchen so we could have left many items at home. The young man we asked did not fully know. Thanks very Much

Fun in Sun

by Caleb on 08/05/2020
The beach house was great. Very comfortable and clean. Loved being close to the beach. Hope to schedule again next summer.

Great Family Time

by Sandra on 08/03/2020
My family of 6 had a wonderful 3 day getaway at Seabatical. The location was perfect and afforded easy access to the beach. The house was plenty spacious and everyone was comfortable and pleased with the bedrooms & baths. The porch with the beautiful views was welcoming & relaxing for those who just want to sit in the breeze and let their mind wander. Will definitely return.

Excellent - 5 Stars -- very impressed

by Nekebra on 08/03/2020
My family and I stayed at the Solana home and were very impressed. The home was immaculate overall. Loved that there was a crock pot and all the utensils I needed to cook. We will return!

Great location , great stay

by Melanie on 08/02/2020
We enjoyed our stay and especially the location of Sea Dreams. We definitely plan to return whenever we can. Great service also when we needed it!

Sun Kissed -- we felt like it was our home

by Jenny on 08/02/2020
The home was clean and well maintained. From the time we got there we felt like it was our home. We had great views of the beach and was just steps away. Definitely would recommend Sun Kissed to anyone looking for a beach get away.

Beautiful house; just one issue...

by Leigh on 07/31/2020
This house was incredibly comfortable and beautifully decorated. The beds were extremely comfortable, there were plenty of linens, and the kitchen was well-stocked. Everything was very organized, neat and clean. It is right on the beach, and the view from the living area is spectacular. My ONE complaint is that this house is right next to the beach access road. At first, I thought this was an advantage because we would have one less neighbor. However, I quickly realized that other renters from all the houses behind us would use the access road to get to the beach, and then camp out right in front of our house. At one point, we even had folks who had driven two carloads of people from somewhere else entirely and had all their umbrellas and coolers right in front of our place. Unfortunately, we were there on the weekend of Hurricane Hannah, so it rained quite a bit. Also, the storm forced the tide way in, so there was very little beach to speak of. The water came up to just about 2 feet from the grass. With this being said, there wasn't a lot of beach to share, so having people in front of our house meant that we had to move down the beach. Maybe on a typical day (without a hurricane in the area) the beach would be big enough for several families (??). I would definitely rent from Bolivar vacation rentals again in the future, but I would not select this particular house, due to it's location. Other than that, it was a perfect beach house.

Wonderful stay!

by Diane on 07/27/2020
Serenity was a perfect place for our family reunion. The house was so comfortable and spacious—and had all we needed for a large group. The kids enjoyed the fun loft area. And the bedrooms were great for the parents. Loved the seating spaces and the open floor plan. Also loved being right on the beach. Just a note that the beach area in front is public—so we didn’t get to set up right in front of the house—but it was just a short walk down to some open space. Also loved the downstairs shower to rinse off the sand. Would definitely stay here again!

Perfect location! We will renting again!

by Amy on 07/27/2020
Perfect location! We will renting again!

Clean, comfortable, and steps from the beach!

by Kerry on 07/26/2020
The house is super clean with very comfortable furnishings. Covered deck is definitely a plus! Location is perfect! Plan to return!

The Flamingo on Bolivar Peninsula

by Lynn on 07/22/2020
Beautiful place!! Super clean!!

Our stay at the Solana was a wonderful experience! The house is well equipped, we had everything we needed to prepare our meals. The home was immaculate, we had no concerns at all. The balcony was my favorite spot for coffee in the morning and relaxing in the evening. We will definitely visit again!

The Seabatical is the perfect get-a-way home away from home. We enjoyed drinking our morning coffee on the upper deck watching the pelicans and watching the waves roll in. The Seabatical was very clean and fresh. Loved the walk-in shower. The whole house was beautifully decorated and was stocked with everything needed for a pleasant stay. We are definitely coming back next year, Good Lord Willing. Thank you for sharing your wonderful beach home with us. See ya next year.

We enjoyed every minute of our stay in the Seabatical. Thank you for sharing your beach home with us. It is the perfect home away from home. For us older couples everything is within reach and we love the walk-in shower. It is beautifully decorated. We really enjoyed the upper deck and watching waves and pelicans. We will be coming back next year. Thank-you.

Thank you for being so responsive to our little dramas! We had a few small challenges that were compounded by all the telecommunications being down. You were so quick to get us the assistance we needed. Thank you. My one suggestion is to push for NO cars or trucks on the beach. C J

Awesome Stay

by Denise on 07/19/2020
Our family of 10 had a terrific week long stay ! The weather was great, sunshine everyday. The home was gorgeous, very spacious, the kids loved the loft, beautiful views, beaches were not crowded at all. We look forward to our next trip ! Thank you Bolivar Vacations for an exceptional vacation.

Perfect family getaway

by Kelli on 07/15/2020
Beach house is just steps away from the beach. House was very clean and well maintained. We have stayed at this house for the 3rd time. We love it. Perfect for our family getaway. Will be back. Thank you

everything was great. there were a couple of things we found that you could improve on for safety. Down stairs there is a change in elevation on the concrete. need to be painted yellow. and on the side the is a 1" lip going into the area. my parents tripped a couple of time not knowing there was a change. Don't want anyone to get hurt. There is no shower head down stairs shower. The round door knob on the door into the house sticks some. A lever type would be better for older people. There was only one of the solar light working going up the stairs. Nothing big we all loved the house and talking about when next year we are going

The house was perfect!

by Curtis on 07/13/2020
We had a wonderful time on our vacation. The house was perfect! Plenty of room and balcony areas to enjoy the views and outdoors. Easy and close walk to the beach. We will definitely book with you again on our next stay!

Had a great stay

by Jaimie on 07/11/2020
Had a great stay, loved the house and location. Would definitely stay here again. My ONLY complaint is the kitchen floors and pantry looked like they hadn’t been cleaned before our stay.

Perfect view

by Minniechasezane63 on 07/10/2020
Moon Stone is a beautiful house with great amenities and a wonderful view! George is the perfect host, he responds quickly and doesn’t bother you while you are enjoying your stay! The beds are very comfortable in each room. The WiFi works great and is included with the house. The kitchen is stocked well with everything you will need to prepare your meals. Location, location, location! If you Don’t want to he on a crowded beach then this is the house for you and your family!

Excellent rental!

by Susan on 07/09/2020
This was our second stay. We love the house, the private beach, and the quiet area. Even COVID-19 did not ruin our summer beach fun! We will rent again!!!

Beautiful House w/ great location.

by Patrick on 07/08/2020
Honestly, the house is set up perfectly for groups of 10 or more. It’s also set up well for any size group, but wanted to make sure larger groups know you will have no problem in this house nor will you feel crammed. The house is basically brand new and had just about anything you need. I will make a suggestion to get a few beach chairs, mainly cause we didn’t have enough bc some people didn’t bring any. Great balcony with a great view, the house has a backyard that is set up really cool so the dogs can go outside from the upper deck. The beds are extremely comfortable and the grill worked great . We will most definitely be back again!

The cabin was great!

by Gregory on 07/07/2020
The cabin was great! It was roomy and really comfortable for my whole family. We really enjoyed the top deck for morning and evening coffee and the view was so nice. We voted where to go next year and my family wants to come back there. Greg

Great Stay

by Luke on 07/06/2020
The place was very clean and there was an abundance of beds. The short walk to the beach made it even better!

Wonderful place

by Helena on 07/06/2020
Beautiful place. Well stocked. And very relaxing.

Wonderful Stay!

by Ashley on 07/06/2020
There's simply nothing less than great to say about the house... it's right on the beach; inside and outside are beautiful and the furniture/beds are quality and comfortable; plenty of towels & blankets (towels are all the HUGE hall bathroom - it took us a minute to figure that out); the kids LOVED the loft area & the full bathroom up there was super nice to have. We left on July 3 and it took us forever to get packed up. The lady responsible for cleaning showed up at 10:55am (11:00 checkout) and even she was soooooo friendly and helpful & didn't pressure us at all even with our 11:01 departure lol. We had quick and super professional customer service before the actual trip as well (including an email conversation on Mother's Day). This is our 2nd vacation with Bolivar Rentals & we now check their cabins before any others when looking for a place in Crystal Beach!

Fantastic stay at a fabulous house.

by Glen on 07/05/2020
Our family of nine had a fantastic stay at Splash. It is right on the beach and the kids were out in the ocean all day. Great three bedrooms and perfect kitchen for all of us. We plan on going back next summer and would recommend this for any family. If there was one slight con, it was the internet was spotty, but we were on vacation, so not a big deal.

Perfect spot for family vacation! We treasure the memories

by Jennifer on 07/03/2020
Flip Flop was the perfect spot for our family vacation! The house was spotless and is beautifully decorated. There were so many thoughtful touches - fully outfitted luxury kitchen, plastic dishes and cutlery for the kids, and comfortable mattresses and linens on the beds. It was such a treat to be so close to the beach and enjoy morning coffee while watching the waves. The Bolivar Vacations office was quick to reply the one time that we needed assistance. We treasure the memories we made during our stay!


by Megan on 07/02/2020
My family and I absolutely loved this home! It is right on the beach like advertised and with 3 little ones, the shorter distance you have to lug gear the better! The house itself is beautiful, clean, and very well maintained. The kids (and adults) did not want to leave! We will definitely be back!

Our stay at the Splash location was awsome. Clean, great view / all my guest including myself had a wonderful stay. Highly recommend this place. Thank you

Well appointed, and nicely laid out!

by Sandra on 06/22/2020
This was a wonder home to stay in! Well appointed, and nicely laid out! We had a wonderful time with plenty of room for 15 people. The closeness to the beach was nice.

Great House!

by Holly on 06/22/2020
Great House! Corner Lot next to beach access. House has REAL closets and a pantry! These are definitely bonuses in rentals. The deck is great to sit and watch the surf. Love that these houses are away from the crazy busy parts of the beach farther west. Shelling was great and didn’t hurt that the weather was perfect too! Beds were comfy and the Kitchen had everything you need. Great meal at Steve’s, and we cooked at home too. All in all wonderful!

Amazing Vaca

by Robyn on 06/21/2020
Our family had an amazing time at Crystal Beach in The SeaQuell! The house had everything you need and the views were amazing. We loved the small deck in the mornings and the large deck the rest of the day & night!!


by Jill on 06/21/2020
The house was lovely! I was worried about being in the second row (stayed in first row twice now). But, it was just as good. The view and accessibility was perfect! The grands loved the loft area! It was the perfect family get away ❤️

Great Stay at Flamingo

by Nanci on 06/21/2020
Great Location, right on the beach. This was perfect for a family reunion with 20 of us. The teenage cousins stayed up the in the loft. They loved having their own space. We were just steps from the beach and water. The house was clean and well-kept. There were enough bathrooms and beds for all of us. The ice maker in the fridge couldn't keep up with our group, so if you have a large group, pick up a few bags of ice for your stay. Host communicated well and answered promptly. We're already looking to stay again!

Great for our family get together

by Jacque on 06/17/2020
Loved it and hope to be back! Great for our family get together; upstairs loft was perfect for the teens; well/stocked kitchen and linens. Perfect location and right on the beach!

Seabatical is an awesome property.

by Tilla on 06/15/2020
Seabatical is an awesome property. This is our second time to rent a house from Bolivar Vacations and we were not disappointed! The house is beautiful and has all the amenities you could possibly need. It was very clean when we arrived and during these times that was very important! And you can't beat the location to the water! We will be back!

Best Beach Rental ever!

by Tammy L on 06/14/2020
This rental was amazing! It had everything we needed with the exception of cleaning products such as glass, kitchen and bathroom cleaner. If you are a clean freak as I am, I would suggest bringing your own if you are staying for very long. My family enjoyed this vacation So much. We will be back!

Perfect Location

by Marissa on 06/14/2020
This house is in a great location! We had a few small kids so being right on the beach is perfect. This only issue I can think of is that the pictures of the rooms are not accurate. One bedroom shows single size bunk beds but that isn’t the case. It’s actually full/queen bunks. We made it work but that might be a dealbreaker to some people that are looking for particular sleeping arrangements. Overall, I would definitely recommend this house and we will be staying there again.

Perfect for family gathering

by Kirk on 06/14/2020
This house was perfect for our family getaway. Rooms and bathrooms for every adult couple and the upstairs loft was a hit with all the kids. Right in the beach - perfect location and setup. We plan on returning each year.

Wonderful vacation

by Gregory on 06/12/2020
Loved this place so much!! Will definitely be coming back a.s.a.p. Such a beautiful View of the ocean!! Very nice people all around us. Home was stocked well with everything that we needed.

Flip Flop - absolutely perfect

by Rebecca on 06/10/2020
Thank you for an amazing stay at flip flop. The facility was absolutely perfect for my daughters 16th birthday. She and her friends were able to safely walk to the beach during the day and hang out at the house in the evenings. We appreciate the last minute rental when our prior "big company" home owner cancelled with less than 24 hours notice. You saved the day! We will be back again!

Loved it!

by Ruth on 06/10/2020
It was so nice to get away for the weekend. Loved being right on the beach. The home was very comfortable. Will definitely go again.


by Gina on 06/08/2020
We had a wonderful stay at SeaDreams, right on the beach in Galveston. The home had everything we needed, plus several amenities that we didn't even think we needed, but were there. The hosts are superb communicators, and we were even lucky enough to get a golf cart tour of the beach with them! Super clean, immaculate housekeeping!


by Karen on 06/07/2020
Really, really loved the house and The location.

Perfect Beach Stay

by Christina on 06/07/2020
What a GREAT property! My five kids loved this place and so did my husband and I! Super clean, well-appointed and in a great location! The kitchen has everything I needed and I appreciate that there was a traditional drip coffee maker. It is a good-sized house for enjoying the beach and keeping everyone fed conveniently, and the space underneath the house was a good respite from the sun in the afternoons. We hung a hammock and brought loungers for by the picnic table and it was a good place for games. We also appreciated the nice thick grass around the house in the evenings - was a great location to watch the sunset. Will definitely book again when we go to the coast!

Beach Quest Memorial Day stay

by Mary Ann on 05/28/2020
We had a great stay at Beach Quest house this past weekend. Very comfortable house, beds, and furniture. Great location across a very small road to the beach. Beach was not crowded but you can drive on it so we had to watch the kids but not an issue at all. House was well stocked for cooking and enjoying family. We had a graduation party one night with seafood brought in from the local market and had a great time. Maintenance need was quickly met and fixed so it did not hinder our stay at all. Will try and come again.

Girls time out

by Kathy on 05/27/2020

Wonderful relaxing time at the beach house

by Ronita on 05/26/2020
Everything was provided to make our stay enjoyable and relaxing!! Lots of amenities like griddles, hot water kettle, kuerig and a regular coffee pot, plenty of towels etc. The decor was tasteful and inviting, the House was clean and fresh. Thanks for making our stay a memorable one! We would like to come back in the future.

Easy beach access

by Steve on 05/24/2020
Great location. House next to this one is pretty close. House was clean upon check in. We didn't get our 2 welcome coronas this time like our last stay with Bolivar vacations.

Cant wait to go back, again!

by Robin on 05/24/2020
We absolutely love the Solana! We have never had a bad experience with any of the homes we have rented through Bolivar Vacations. We have stayed in 6 of the homes, always depending on how many in our party but the Solana will always be my favorite. Everything we needed was there, we brought charcoal and lighter fluid for the grill, and loved the outdoor cooking area, didnt need to bring anything else for the grill, everything was provided. The 2 bunk rooms were perfect as we were able to allow the older boys to be away from the younger boys and the 5 TVs during a short rain storm really made a world of difference. Thank you for everything, we already booked for the 3red time this year as it's a great way to relax.


by Cathy on 05/20/2020
Perfect getaway from Covid-19! Our family loved this property. It was super clean and had everything we needed. Our teenage kids enjoyed having their own space in the upstairs great room. (5 stars for that) Plenty of room on ground level to entertain. Worth the money and we will back again!!

Had a great stay.

Got rid of our Corona Coma!!

by Kenneth on 05/17/2020
We are looking forward to the next time we get to stay in this wonderful house on the beach! I can't schedule time away from work quick enough! My wife, has gotten rid of her "home schooling" headache and we ALL found relief from our "Corona Coma" overkill.

Proximity to the Beach was amazing!

by Maureen on 05/06/2020
We have rented several beach homes and this was by far the closest to the beach. There is a direct pathway right from the back of the property on to the beach. It made it super convenient for my family to go to and from the beach and to take breaks during the day without having to pack up all our beach gear. The beds were very comfortable and towels were high quality. The house had netflix and HBO channel provided and TVs in each room which was awesome for my kids who are different ages and have different interests. This was just what we needed. There was a comment on the noise. It is close to the HWY but they provided a sound machine which was really nice. We also brought a box fan with us which we sleep with normally and that drowned out any sound from the road. I would definitely love to stay here again in the future. Owners were great to work with!

Great view and location

by Benjamin on 05/04/2020
This was our second time to stay there. We like it better than any other place we've stayed. Will be back in the fall.

Great location the Beach was closed because of Covid-19 but we enjoyed the property love the outdoor spaces

Cant beat that location or that view!

by Derek on 04/06/2020
Our stay was wonderful, the private access to the beach was a nice touch. Up a long flight of stairs to get into the house but it's set up in a way that nobody in our party ever felt cramped. Everyone I talked to was very friendly and understanding of all situations, willing to eager to accommodate our group no matter the circumstances. We will be looking at this same area, rental company, and house again for a future vacation. Thank you!

Loved the Beach View and access from Solana

by Eugenie on 03/09/2020
5 Ladies had a great 3 night stay in Solana. Great for early morning beach walks, watching the sunrise, relaxing and playing board and card games. Steve's Landing was an excellent choice for our first dinner out; Stingaree's helped us wrap up the trip. We will be back in a few months.

Great Location

by Pat on 02/26/2020
Everything you expect and more. The rental company communicated well. The place was clean and well appointed. It was easy to take the ferry into Galveston and enjoy all that city has to offer. But I think the rental's best feature was waking up and looking over the beach and the Gulf. The view is peaceful, calming, and something we will always treasure.

Just what we needed

by Brenda on 02/20/2020
This place was perfect for our little group. We all needed some time away for awhile. It was clean and pretty well supplied. We loved the windows and the view of the ocean. The company was super to work with and even got us the Superbowl on the T.V. which made the group very thankful and happy. We had to change our reservation dates and that was easy too! Thanks for offering us a great place to recharge.

Great Sunrise Beach View!!

by John on 02/20/2020
Four of us had a great time. The house was well stocked and in a good location for access to the beach. Got up in time to catch the sunrise and made breakfast every morning. Bought shrimp right off the boat and played 9 holes at the Crystal Beach Golf Course. (Course is a little rustic but fun for $15.00) Took the ferry over to Galveston for dinner. We will be back!!

Will definitely be back!

by Jennifer on 02/14/2020
Amazing home with every amenity you could ever need. Location was superb and host was available with a quick response time. Will definitely be back!

Great lodging - well stocked kitchen!

Great home. Great location. Great owners.

by Bo on 01/28/2020
The only thing I can think of that's a negative regarding our stay at Mariposa is that we couldn't stay longer!! The place is just great. The house itself is beautiful and tastefully decorated. The furnishings are of a higher quality than the majority of places my wife and I have vacationed in over the years. It's just a really comfortable place to relax. The location is about as good as beachfront gets in the Bolivar area. This house is just a VERY few feet from the gulf. The view from the oversized balcony is absolutely beautiful. The owners(George and Valinda) are both very friendly and helpful. They're also very serious about seeing to it that their vacation homes are among the nicest around - especially for the price. They own the majority of the homes in this small development and each of them is as nice as the rest. Also, the sizes of their homes vary according to sleeping capacity. They pretty much have an offering that will suit any families needs. The Bolivar area isn't one we get to very often but I can say without hesitation that if we stay in this area again we will do our level best to stay in one of George and Valindas homes.

Great house bad instructions

by Michael on 01/14/2020
The house is amazing and plenty of space. The only issue is that there are 2 completely different checkout instructions. The cleaning fee was a little steep Considering the back Page cleaning instructions versus the front page cleaning instructions. One tells you don’t worry about linens, sheets etc and then at the last minute I happened to find the full 10 step instructions to checkout. We nearly missed our cruise ship because of it trying to get checked out.

Bolivar peninsula vacation -- wonderful place

by Jim on 01/14/2020
It was a wonderful place with great view and access to the ocean. Most mornings we were the only people on the beach as far as you could see. A short drive and ferry ride into Galveston. Well stocked kitchen, comfortable beds. I would highly recommend!!

We enjoyed our New Year holiday staying in Mariposa. The house is clean and nicely furnished. We especially liked the location on the beach. Bolivar is a great place to stay if you want don’t need or want the touristy offerings of Galveston. I’m sure we will be back.

Winter stay

by Erin on 01/02/2020
My kids and I thoroughly enjoyed our winter stay at SeaDreams! We had a couple nights as a family starting Boxing day, and were joined by friends for the remainder of our four night stay. Winter on the beach is just spectacular and the cool Gulf air did not deter the teen girls from boogie boarding! We had fresh seafood from JB's every night. The house is very comfortable and worked well with our group. The views are amazing and we were glad to enjoy them once the fog lifted. We will look forward to our return to SeaDreams!

Holiday Fun

by Debrah on 01/02/2020
Beautiful home. We enjoyed our stay and had everything we needed. This is a very comfortable place to stay. Love the Decour. The beach was so relaxing and clean. Also it wasn’t very crowded and I loved that.

Very nice time

by John on 12/24/2019
Great location, everything we needed. Relaxing time. Will be back!

Sunkissed Home

by Julio on 12/20/2019
Had a great time with family and friends at SunKissed. Small details for the next house guest. When the wind picks up the house like to sway a bit. Great place and plenty of room.

Splash house Sudan G Tulsa OK

by Susan on 12/19/2019
This was my 5th stay at the peninsula and by far the best

Fantastic property!

by Kelly on 12/08/2019
This was our second year to stay at Seabatical and we will be back. The property is clean and comfortable, great location, and the reservation process was very easy. The property has everything you need and they didn’t overlook any detail. This year it was even decorated with an adorable beach-themed Christmas tree and lights on the deck. I highly recommend it!

Amazing House!!

by Leah on 11/20/2019
We had a family getaway in November with 19 people and this house was perfect! It is clean, modern and the view is amazing! The deck has plenty of room for everyone to relax and enjoy beautiful sunsets. Communication with the owners was great, all emails were replied to immediately. I highly recommend this host and property.


by Joni on 11/20/2019
Have stayed at dozens of cabins through the years and Seabatical is one of our top homes. Foremost: it is as close to the beach as you can get! The home does not lack for anything and the room sizes and layout were excellent! Nice quiet area of beach, will definitely have this home on our return to list! And rental agency was a breeze to work with.

Great place

by Ronald on 11/17/2019
This place was fully equipped and decorated so beautiful. The location was perfect to the beach,


by Annette on 11/17/2019
Excellent views of the ocean. House is beautiful and very clean. Fully equipped. We're very happy with our stay. We would love to vacation here again.

Perfect Stay

by Jo Ann on 11/13/2019
My sisters introduced me to the SunDaze the beginning of October. It was the perfect place for total relaxation. So great in fact, my husband and I returned a few weeks later. He found it to be the perfect respite as well. The SunDaze is perfectly appointed and is so conveniently located to groceries and wonderful restaurants. We decided on the second morning we would return to the SunDaze every fall. Thank you George for a beautiful beach house and a wonderful stay!

Very welcoming and cozy. Perfect location, short walk to beach. Felt at home with all kitchen supplies, pots, pans, utensils and spices etc.. Will definitely be back to this location!!!!

Heaven on the beach!

by Jason on 11/07/2019
This house was awesome. We have rented several different ones over the past few years and my wife and I really enjoyed Beachquest the most. It was clean and nice. We absolutely will be staying here again next year for our annual beach trip!!! Thank you for making our weekend enjoyable!!

Excellent - 5 Stars

by Sylvia on 11/06/2019
We had a fabulous time. The home and location were perfect. We will be going back, hopefully soon.

Wonderful Home!

by Melinda on 11/04/2019
Splash is a wonderful home located right on the beach - we had the best time and the accommodations were great. Everything was clean and spacious. Ocean sunsets were gorgeous and we enjoyed many hours relaxing on the deck. Would highly recommend this property!

Beach Quest Birthday

by Fredericke on 10/30/2019
We loved every bit of our stay! Every bit! We booked this as a gift for my mother for her birthday and she absolutely loved it. We really appreciated that fully equipped meant fully equipped in this case. The only thing we missed were some towel hooks and a few extra washcloths, but that really didn't matter because we could wash on-site. The house is beautiful, there was space for everyone, and the views/walks to the beach right in front of the house couldn't be beat. We left with so many good memories! Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Weekend with Friends

by Deanna on 10/30/2019
We rented Solana and Seabatical for a weekend with friends and had a blast! Both properties are very clean and well stocked with everything you need in the kitchen. You won't be disappointed!

Just wonderful

Great location. Gorgeous beach views. House was bright and had everything we needed.

Relaxing Weekend

by Ruth on 10/22/2019
We had such a great time. Can't wait to go back. I loved the beach access.


by Jan on 10/21/2019
We were provided excellent accommodations and had the best time of times. We will be returning soon!

2nd time around

by Charlotte on 10/20/2019
We had a great time as well as the previous time. It was warmer this time. We enjoyed setting on the deck and listening to the waves. Very relaxing. We will be returning.

Great home Great locatikn

by Melanie on 10/19/2019
Loved being only a few steps from the beach and having unobstructed views of the ocean from the large front porch and smaller back porch. Also the home’s floor plan was perfect and the homeowners thoughtfully had everything we needed for our stay in the kitchen. Dry clean and beautiful home.

Sea Dreams

by Carol on 10/17/2019
Beautiful home. Clean and ready for visitors. We had a great time and look forward to visiting again.

Front row view with a 2nd row price

by Benjamin on 10/14/2019
Very good location in a less congested area with easy access to highway, fishing and stores. Great view of ocean from deck.Very clean and well furnished. After staying at numerous beach houses in the Crystal Beach area, we like this better than any we have stayed at. Will be going back.

SeaQuell! A perfect vacation home.

by Donlyn on 10/14/2019
This was our second year to stay in this house, everything was perfect. The house is maybe 20 yards from beach, the deck is perfect, great view, and nice deck furniture.

Fabulous home and location

by Harvey on 10/12/2019
House was clean and had all we needed. Great location right on the beach with beautiful views of the gulf. Will stay again when in the area.

Good Times

by Pat on 10/03/2019
Place was awesome!!! Had girls weekend, 13 of us, and we were all comfortable!!! Being right on the beach was amazing!!!!

5 Stars

by Justin on 10/01/2019
We had a blast on our vacation here. The house was the perfect size and it was very clean. It’s a short walk of only about 40 yards from the house to the water, which was very convenient. The grocery store is only about ten minutes down the street and the kitchen had everything we needed. Mosquitos got bad one day but by late afternoon there was someone out there spraying and they weren’t too bad the rest of the trip. I definitely plan on coming back next year.

Solana stay

by Tilla on 09/30/2019
Everything about the property was as advertised. Fabulous time sitting on both the front and back decks. We will be back - soon!!!

Sea Quest

by Roy on 09/30/2019
This was a very nice place. Very clean with all kinds of cookware and a nice view of beach. As an aged couple we would appreciate grab rails in bathrooms. But that’s not renters fault- just ours. We arrived at nite because of flooded roads and had trouble finding. We were at the wrong place but an call to vbro got us help - and it was 3am for the manager. None the less they got us oriented and stayed with us on the phone until we got shelter. Thank you Kristin

Excellent - 5 Stars

by Lyssa on 09/25/2019
Loved the house and the views. Didn't get to enjoy much since the tropical depression came and had to stay inside and no electric for 2 1/2 days. Couldn't go anywhere because of floods. Wish we could've rescheduled our trip but since the policy only gives reschedule or refunds for mandatory evacuation we just sweat it out. I would love to go back again but won't go in tropical season. You just never know when it will hit.

Excellent - 5 Stars

by Susan on 09/24/2019
Once again we thoroughly enjoyed our 4th time at Sea Dreams - beautiful as ever and will definitely return - maybe not in September due to hurricane but that's not going to stop us from going back. Wonderful new mattress in the master bedroom. Always a pleasure just to sit on deck and enjoy the waves. Thank you again for offering such a beautiful place to stay. Frank and Susan

beautiful Solana house September 8-13th, 2019

by Teri on 09/16/2019
Solana is a beautiful house, well stocked for anything that you need. The views are stunning. Our family had a very relaxing stay, lots of memories. Only little tiny thing is the chairs at the island are not very comfortable when you play games, but that was no biggie. Loved our stay and we are making plans to return next year in September sometime. Thanks again for letting us enjoy your house.

Great location

by Cindy on 09/15/2019
We had a great time at the Sunkissed location. Very well equipped and clean. We will be back. Only issue we had was with TV's. Remotes were not working or lost. We used that time to just spend more time together. 🙂

Left amazed at Sundaze

by Jacqueline on 09/11/2019
Easy access to beach. Right on the HWY. Clean, lots of room!

Wonderful house just steps from beach. Highly recommended and we’ll definitely be staying again.

Seabatical: Best beach house for the money in 37 years of vacations at a beach

by Barbara on 09/08/2019
Best beach house for the money in 37 years of vacations at a beach. Home was new, CLEAN, and beautifully decorated with very comfortable furniture and beds. Beach access was excellent and beach was clean. Loved the stairway and porch chairs and ground-level shower area. No splinters for bare feet. A few minor things to improve: TV in family room was not tied to satellite but bedrooms were? Access door needs a spring or hinges to ensure it closes as it was left open too often. No clock anywhere. Bedrooms could have used a dresser.. there was room certainly. Fridge was too small for the occupancy number since there are few good places to eat, you eat-in a lot. Looking forward to renting this one again!!!!

Hard to improve on perfection!

by Debra on 09/08/2019
Beautiful house with every comfort. Perfect location to enjoy the beautiful view. Already booked for a future holiday.

Best Beach house rental and vacation ever!

by Cindi And Burt on 09/05/2019
We had a wonderful time in your beach house. It is very clean and very well cared for. We found everything we needed for a great holiday weekend with our family ... our adult children were very impressed with the place. Great views and wonderful beach access. We definitely will want to stay again.

Nice Place to Relax

by Gregory on 09/03/2019
The house was clean and comfortable. A minor maintenance issue was resolved to our satisfaction. The two Coronas in the refrigerator were a nice welcome touch.

Wonderful house

by Becky D. on 09/02/2019
We had usually enjoyed our Bolivar vacation at Moonstone. However, plans changed this year, and we were late making reservations. We were lucky Mariposa was even available! What a wonderful surprise. This house is just as wonderful as Moonstone!!! House is always neat/clean, necessary housewares there and view from the porch....unforgettable! 🙂 So now we'll have a second Bolivar Vacation home option. Thank you Kerstin/Bolivar Vacations

Great Beach House

by Cindy on 08/29/2019
Great beach house, right on the beach. Clean & spacious. Would definitely rent again.

Beautiful beachfront

by Terri on 08/25/2019
Beautiful beachfront house. Very nice, plenty of room for our family. Right on the beach. We loved it!!

Ocean Front Dream exceeded our expectations!

by Jennifer on 08/24/2019
This oceanfront rental exceeded our expectations! So close to the sand that you felt like you were on the beach while sitting on the front porch. There were days when we were the only ones on the entire beach. This was the most relaxing vacation we have ever had. We will be back!

How do you write about the perfect Beach House?

by Kk on 08/21/2019
We have been to a lot of beach houses and I believe that we know a great one when we experience it...and that is what Bolivar Vacations gave us. Flamingo Beach house is an amazing house. Everything in the house was perfect! I mean I DO NOT have words to describe. It's was a lifetime experience. The communication was so easy. I was in touch with Kerstin and they responded to my messages right away. THE BEST EXPERIENCE EVER!!!!!

Loved my stay plan on coming back

by Tracy on 08/12/2019
Loved my stay plan on coming back. Only thing no one liked was the beds. Other than that great place to stay.

The Solana, beach and Bolivar vacations are perfect

by Stephen on 08/12/2019
This was our second year to stay at the beautiful Solana, we had an awesome week! The Solana, beach and Bolivar vacations are perfect, will only use them and their beautiful homes from now on! Recommend VERY highly!♥️

SeaDreams--clean, well-appointed house right on the beach

by Jane on 08/12/2019
My family rents a beach house every summer and we try to rent from Bolivar Vacations because we know we will get a clean, well-appointed house right on the beach. My grandkids dubbed this house the best yet - on the beach, good floor plan, and wooden (not metal) bunkbeds! Thanks for a great vacation.

Amazing property!

by William on 08/11/2019
Truly fantastic property - right on the water - great views - home is upscale and comfortable. Excellent for large groups - families with kids - reunions etc. If this is your first visit to Bolivar Peninsula I would suggest checking out the local services well in advance of your trip. Restaurants close early and aren’t always open. Limited grocery / supplies options nearby and pretty pricey when they are. Consider getting food supplies etc before crossing over to the peninsula. Overall great location and lovely property.

Great stay!

by Lauren on 08/08/2019
Always love booking through Bolivar Vacations. Properties are always on great locations and very accommodating.

we were ready to rent it again

by Tammy on 08/07/2019
We loved our stay, so much that we were ready to rent it again for the same date this coming year. But it is already rented for those days so we would like to find out if you have a floor plan on one of the other houses the same as this one. So if you could get back to me on one of your other houses that have the same floor plan I would appreciate it. One suggestion I do have is maybe just one of your houses you have a way for a wheelchair to be able to access the house. Thank you and I’m looking forward to hearing from you, Tammy Hyles

Home Away From Home!

by Kellie on 08/07/2019
Once again our annual family beach vacation was fabulous. BeachQuest is furnished with all the amenities of home and very clean. And the best bonus......steps away from having your toes in the sand.

Great place!!

by Mark on 08/06/2019
Loved the house. It was exactly, if not better than expected. We have a baby so it was nice that the house had a highchair. The only issue we ran into is the bunk beds are quite squeaky so we couldn’t use them for older kids since we had little ones sleeping in pack n plays in there as well. Too noisy.. Overall, I would absolutely recommend the SeaQuell.

The BEST Beachhouse

by Jonell on 08/06/2019
From the minute we drove up, we could tell this property was well cared for and well appointed. We found everything that we needed and more to make out stay comfortable and fun! It truly felt like we were at home, I cannot think of one thing that was needed. Would love to return!

We loved our stay at Sea Dreams! The deck looks directly over the beach and the gulf, it's as if you are the only ones there. Relaxation is very easy here. The home was perfect and had everything we needed. Only suggestion we have is to mAke the master bed a bit more comfortable. It was too hard for us and my husband bring a big guy, we felt ever move we made. My grandson and daughter loved their rooms and we had a great family vacation. We will be back!

Above Average - 4 Stars

by Brent on 08/03/2019
Mr George, The place was great, my family and I had the best time. Our kids and grandchildren had the best first time experience at the ocean. The house was perfect for us , the distance To the clean beach was very good. They wasn’t any satellite tv and very few of downstairs lights worked. But overall everything was better than I figured,we will definitely plan this trip again. Maybe try to get the same house. Everything was great . Thank you P.S. an elevator would great, lol

Family Vacation 2019-Great space for our group of 9

by Kelli on 07/25/2019
Great location, Very well kept, very clean. Great space for our group of 9. The decor is so cute and has a very beachy feeling which I love. Close to shopping, but far enough from main drag that it was not so crowded as some of the houses I have stayed at in Crystal Beach. Great beach area in front of house. Roomy deck on house for evening star gazing. Will tell others. Thank you

Seaquell-Spent tons of time on the balcony

by Candace on 07/25/2019
Loved the place! beautiful house and location. Spent tons of time on the balcony enjoying the view and breeze. Will definitely stay here again next year.

Great beach house

by Roxanne on 07/23/2019
This is our family’s first time on Bolivar Pennisula for our annual beach trip, and we loved it! The house was great and we were pleased to find bunk beds on the top floor (not pictured in the photos of the house). The kitchen was well stocked and the house was very clean. It was close to the beach which is a big plus! Probably the only negative was the condition of the beach, a lot of trash that looked like carpeting had washed up on shore, and had obviously been there awhile. All in all our visit was great.

Gilchrist Getaway

by Nancy on 07/23/2019
We enjoyed our stay at Moon Stone. The house was furnished comfortably and the kitchen was well equipped (bring your own scissors). Of course, our favorite part was the proximity to the sparsely populated, clean beach. We left our beach awning up our entire stay so we were able to come and go and enjoy many hours next to the surf. We were fortunate to have a constant gulf breeze which kept the mosquitos at bay.

Amazing Rental

by Valerie on 07/22/2019
From walking in from the heat & humidity to an air conditioned home to sitting on the deck listening to the waves this rental is awesome! We brought our daughter’s family & had plenty of room for all. Beach access was literally steps away!!! We will be back!

Beautiful house great location

by Amy on 07/17/2019
Love the house! I wish I had a beach house like this. Perfect location and the house has everything you would need. Cant wait to come back.


by Elaine on 07/16/2019
We loved our stay at Sunkissed. The house was absolutely beautiful and was very well equipped. The weather and the location was awesome also. We did not want to leave! It was a perfect family vacation!!!

Beautiful and Roomy Beach House

by Mary Jane on 07/11/2019
Moonstone was such a comfortable space. It was so nicely furnished and updated. Loved being right on the beach and eating meals on the spacious deck. The only complaint was that vehicles were allowed to drive on the beach. This was quite dangerous for our grandson and the other children around us.

Great location

by Angie on 07/10/2019
Beach quest is super nice and comfortable. This area of the beach is not crowded so great place to relax and enjoy the sounds of the ocean.

We Definitely recommend Splash

by Crystal on 07/09/2019
We had a wonderful time at Splash! Nice place. Everything we needed. Great place for the kids. Even with a 34 hour power outage due to a storm, we survived! We Definitely recommend Spalsh. We like the fact that there was little to no traffic in front of the house too.

Our time here was everything we hoped

by Layce on 07/03/2019
This place was amazing! The home had everything you would need and them some. You had direct contact with host if you needed anything. The views were beautiful and our time here was everything we hoped. We will definitely be back!!

Beachquest -- especially appreciated the kid dishes and utensils

by Lauren on 07/02/2019
We loved our stay at Beach Quest! It had everything we needed in the kitchen. We especially appreciated the kid dishes and utensils. Having a hot shower in a house full of people was wonderful! Looking forward to coming back in the future!

We had a great time

by Gabrielle on 07/01/2019
We had a great time. The one thing I would change would be to have instructions on how to work the t.v. Very confusing and no local channels to keep up with weather.

Beautiful Views

by Courtney on 06/30/2019
This home is in a great location. Beautiful ocean views and super quiet. It was almost like having our own private beach. The house very comfortably accommodated nine people and we never felt crowded. We had everything we needed for a wonder, relaxing vacation. We will definitely book this house again.

Beach Vacation at Solana

by Melinda on 06/30/2019
We had a wonderful stay. It rained the first two days but it was still very nice staying in a home away from home. Three bathrooms were very helpful for multiple families and there is plenty of places for everyone to sleep with four bedrooms and multiple bunk beds! The ocean was pretty rough but the kids enjoyed it so they could boogie board. The locals drive on the beach and that is an adjustment when worried about children’s safety but I can see how it is fun for those who do it. The Solana is a wonderful, beautifully built home and you just can’t beat the proximity to the water!

Can't wait to go back

by Paula on 06/24/2019
Beautiful house soo close to be ocean. There was not be one thing wrong at house. All 9 of us had a great time. The king size beds were very comfortable. I cannot wait to go back!

Excellent Rental

by Melody on 06/17/2019
The location was perfect. Right on the beach! The house was very clean and well furnished. Beautiful views and plenty of space. Our only complaint is with mosquitos which is out of their control. You WILL be eaten alive as soon as sun sets. Don’t hesitate booking this place if you are going to Galveston/bolivar area. Also be aware of ferry waits from Bolivar to Galveston. Some days zero wait and others over an hour. Just factor in some extra time.

Awesome new beach house

by David on 06/17/2019
We love staying at Bolivar Vacation properties. Each is well decorated and equipped. Our family and pets had a wonderful time strolling the beach, enjoying great seafood and sitting on the deck. The ferry was quite busy on our drive over to Galveston. Three ferries were in operation, but traffic to the island was heavy. Return trip was quite different with a very short wait to board. We saw dolphins on the ride back. Kids enjoyed Pleasure Pier while we toured the Bishops Palace and a drive through the Strand. Highly recommend the Bolivar Vacation homes for a great getaway experience. Hwy 87 has new asphalt from High Island to the Ferry. Some new construction in the area, but did not negatively impact our stay. Thanks for the memories.

Third Stay

by Jana on 06/13/2019
This was our third stay and with the exception of the mosquitos (outside of the owners control, but bring lots of bug spray), our stay was exceptional. This company continues to exceed our expectations and we will be back!! The homes are gorgeous, well appointed and in great locations!!

50th Anniversary Celebration

by Barbara on 06/06/2019
Everything was neat, clean and beautifully decorated. There was plenty of towels, etc. The only concern was the small garbage can in the kitchen for such a large place. We had to empty it often. Otherwise, all was fine. Enjoyed ourselves.

by Amanda on 05/19/2019
2nd time staying here! Weather was great, house was clean & saw several updates from last year. The only thing missing was a couple of trash bags 😉 . We will definitely be back again!

Perfect Beach Stay

by Kathy on 05/19/2019
Solana is the perfect beach house. It was so comfortable and well appointed. We had an amazing stay. We are a senior couple and needed a break. My husband can't travel far, so an hour to Solana was just right. The deck looking right on the beach brought so many relaxing hours. I hadn't planned on cooking much, but the kitchen was well equipped with all the utensils necessary for preparing meals. I enjoyed cooking and dining in the kitchen and on the deck. This is an ideal beach house. Thanks so very much. (an elevator for this senior couple would have been great)

Great Accommodations!!

by Jamie on 05/16/2019
Great home, well furnished, located on a less populated beach area.. Great time relaxing on the deck .

Family Beach Time

by Shona on 05/15/2019
We had a wonderful time staying at Splash. The house was perfect, roomy and clean and had all the extras to make us feel at home. The location was great and it was so nice being able to walk right out on the beach. We had some rain but made the most of it when we had to be indoors playing games and watching movies. Luckily we only had scattered showers and we still got plenty of beach time. The kids loved playing in the sand and collecting shells and the grandparents enjoyed sitting on the patio sipping coffee. The electricity went off due to a severe storm and the smoke detector was beeping next door. We know maintenance was there within 20 minutes because they accidentally knocked on our door. Very fast response! We will definitely book another trip here soon!!

Moonstone's beachfront location is just the best. I've stayed there for several visits. The house is always immaculate.Well stocked with necessities. Owner always available for emergencies. Recent upgrades to the house reflect the owner's desire to provide first class experience!

Best place we stayed so far

by Laron on 05/07/2019
Best place we stayed so far. It was our fourth year in the Crystal Beach area

Wonderful Stay - Perfect Views

by Barbara on 05/06/2019
The house was beautiful and well taken care of. Management (as always) was spectacular and so responsive to any little question. We had a wonderful, relaxing trip - wifi was excellent (I had to work remote occasionally and never had any problems with connectivity). We definitely will be back.

Solana. All I can say is WOW!!

by Amy on 05/02/2019
All I can say is WOW!! What a wonderful place to vacation! It was such a beautiful home with awesome views of the the beach and sunrise! I can't wait to come visit again! Highly recommended!!!


by Helen on 05/02/2019
all I can say is that it couldn't have been any better....except maybe I could have stayed longer. What a beautiful home and the views!! I love it and will be back.


by Antonio on 05/01/2019
We had a fantastic time on our weekend getaway! The house has the perfect location, plenty of parking and room for everyone. It’s nicely decorated and the bedrooms have the best set up NO BUNKS! We have already booked our next stay for September! My only suggestion would be to have a trash can downstairs.

Place was a blast!!

by Ricky on 05/01/2019
Had a great time!! Place was a blast!!

Very nice

by Jill on 05/01/2019
Very nice, good location. House was very clean and had everything we needed.

We had a delightful stay at SunDaze!

by Kathleen on 04/29/2019
We had a delightful stay at SunDaze! The house was spotlessly clean and very well stocked. The owners were very responsive when we called with questions. We will definitely be back!

Perfect Beachhouse, Excellent Location!

by Oleta on 04/28/2019
We love this beach house! This is our second stay here. The house has everything you need for a relaxing stay. With the exception of being a little busier for Easter weekend, this beach feels like our own private beach. Beach access is quick and easy. We even saw a dolphin from the deck on our last morning. We definitely want to come back again!

Beautiful Getaway

by Audra on 04/21/2019
We enjoyed our stay at SunDaze! So close to the beach it seemed we were on the water when looking out and even the house rocked like a boat which was a little frightening but normal. The beach was pretty secluded as we could walk quite a ways and see only a few people although it was April. Lots of shells and we even saw some dolphins on one of our beach walks. Grocery store was only about 10 minutes away. Water was nice for swimming even though it has more of a muddy appearance it was a nice vacation from KS! Only downfall was our neighbors were noisy with loud music and shooting off fireworks at random times. The houses are very close together so if you have disruptive neighbors it could make your vacation a little less enjoyable. We did enjoy our time at the beach and explored other places during the day, like the nearby wildlife refuge. We saw many alligators and beautiful birds and even caught a few crabs for dinner at the refuge. The rental company was excellent at responding to all of our questions! Hope to stay here again in the future! Bring mosquito repellent!

Areas available to view nature are abundant

by Doug on 04/19/2019
The home was beautiful, impeccably clean, and very comfortable. The house was very bright with amazing views. The areas available to view nature are abundant and did not disappoint. We would definitely stay with this vacation rental again.

Great weekend getaway

by Michael on 04/18/2019
We recently stayed at Sea Dreams in Bolivar with family and friends for a weekend getaway. What a great experience! The house is directly on the beach and kept in immaculate condition. We ate well, slept well and enjoyed our days and nights on the beach and on the awesome deck overlooking the beach and Gulf of Mexico.

Beautiful Home

by Alice on 04/11/2019
The home was beautiful and very comfortable. We especially liked the little touches to make us more comfortable, throw pillows and soft fuzzy throws were a nice touch, especially since we had some chilly days with fog. I will definitely recommend this property to others.

Annual Mother and Daughters and Daughters Trip

by Sheri on 04/10/2019
Three generations of women (7 in total) returned to a house since we loved it so much last year. We were not able to get the same house, but found Splash to be just as wonderful. Fully equipped kitchen, lovely decor, spacious, and right on the beach...who could want more?! We will return again next year to one of the houses.

Beautiful and convenient

by Janaki on 04/10/2019
Beautiful and convenient location. House was clean with lots of room to spread out !

In Real Estate it is always about LOCATION

by Frank on 04/10/2019
I remember talking to a relative that was in real estate. He said there are only 3 important things: Location, location, location. And this as well a owners other two beach houses are all front row ocean view. Throw a rock from the deck and it will hit on beach sand if not water itself. Plug for Kerstin: She went out of her way to make sure all was locked in and I even grabbed an extra day at the end of stay and she did that in HOURS.

March on Bolivar Peninsula

by Tom on 04/03/2019
We enjoyed our month. Very nice beach house, clean, all the amenities, everything worked, etc. Nice beach, we ran/walked it, Derby the Labrador loved it, friendly fishermen and people on beach. The Peninsula and Galveston are interesting and entertaining. Great food! Cajun and Mexican. Weather a little iffy early in the month, but then the skies cleared and the sun came out. Can't control the weather....take what you get.

Office Retreat - Beach Quest was perfect place

by Suzanne on 03/29/2019
We went to Crystal Beach for an office retreat and the Beach Quest was the perfect place! The house was very clean, had everything we needed and the close proximity to the beach was ideal.

Marvelous home and perfect location

by Donna on 03/28/2019
This was simply the best vacation I have ever had. The location of the house was perfect, I listened to the waves every night through my opened bedroom window, it wasn’t crowded on the beach and full of tourists, the house had everything to make meals and I hope to make it back there again. I fell in love.

Great Beach Front Home

by Susan on 03/25/2019
Had a lovely stay at this 3 bedroom beachfront home. Very clean, spacious and beautiful. Great for 2 families, beautiful deck to sit on enjoy your coffee or cocktails and watch the ocean. Truly a lovely home. Steps from the beach!

Great Beachfront Accomodations

by Jamie on 03/21/2019
We had a great time last weekend ( March 14-18) with our stay at Seabactical. Beautiful beachfront home that met all of our needs. Enjoyed viewing the sunrise every morning on the large deck and relaxing long afternoon walks on the beach. Highly recommend this home for people that want to experience a beach vacation.

Very nice place for our family of 7

by Michael on 03/19/2019

The house was perfect! Our family had a wonderful time! Thx so much!

Wonderful Beach House

by Jeffery on 03/12/2019
The beach house has a great layout, is well equiped and in a nice quiet location right next to the beach. The Bolivar Peninsula is a very laid back area. You can walk on the beach for miles. We really enjoyed a couple of the local restraunts and fresh seafood.

Repeat visitor. Continue to enjoy it here very much.

by David'S on 03/11/2019
We have stayed here several times and continue to enjoy it here very much. The property is very well kept and it has everything we need for a comfortable and relaxing getaway.

Excellent Stay

by Ross on 03/11/2019
This was our second stay at Sea Dreams! It was wonderful! Wonderful oceanfront location. We will be back!

the house was beautiful

by Dan on 03/04/2019
Enjoyed to stay very much the house was beautiful the only bad part we has the weather was not good while we were there

What a perfect place to stay!

by Linda on 02/27/2019
What a perfect place to stay! The house is beautiful and has everything that you could possibly need. The Bedding and towels were great quality. Kitchen has everything that you need if you want to cook. Lots of space and nice beach decor. I would highly recommend it. The owners thought of everything! Nice, heavy outdoor furniture. It is a happy colorful retreat!

Highly recommended!

by Cindy on 02/26/2019
The house was the perfect beach house!! Well stocked with everything you would need. Highly recommended!

Our stay at SunDaze was great

by Bryce on 02/20/2019
Our stay at SunDaze was great. The house was a nice clean cozy little place that had plenty of space. The deck was a great place to drink your coffee in the morning and watch the sun come up. The family and I are looking forward to coming back in the near future to make some more memories.

Great location of beach house

by Elaine on 02/09/2019
Enjoyed our stay, nice house.


by Matthew on 02/04/2019
The house and property were lovely and amazing. It was just perfect for our needs. Everything was spotless when we got there, everything was functional. Truly a remarkable property and lovely location. We really enjoyed our visit very much.

Sundaze at Gilchrist

by Kathy on 02/01/2019
We had a wonderful stay at the Sundaze house east of Roll Over Pass. Good location. Well kept. Nice and quiet. The front door knob needs some work. It was hard to turn and made it difficult to get into and out of the house. The houses in this area are very close together and I would be concerned about privacy during peak vacation seasons. We did love the place and plan to be back.

We loved!

by Janaina on 02/01/2019
Everything was clean, the house is beautiful, beach really in front of the house, everything we needed was there. Just one not so good comment: the temperature of air-conditioner was blocked to change. But we talk with him and it was better.

Thank for a relaxing stay.

by Mark on 01/28/2019
This home was comfortable, clean, and fun. Thank you for a relaxing and comfortable stay.

Best house ever

by Kerstin on 01/24/2019
As always had a fabulous time at Mariposa. The house is so beautiful with everything you could want or need. Amazing deck to sit outside and watch the ocean. Very peaceful and relaxing getaway. My favorite place ever. Thank you George and Valinda for letting us stay.

New Years family fun.

by Shannon on 01/20/2019
We had a great time at Solana. Even though it rained and was cold four out of our five days, it was our granddaughters first time at the beach. The house was perfect and there was plenty of room for all of us. There is nothing better than the view from the front porch. We will definitely be back!

New Years family fun.

by Shannon on 01/20/2019
We had a great time at Solana. Even though it rained and was cold four out of our five days the kids still played on the beach, it was our granddaughters first time at the Gulf. New Years Eve fireworks were great. The house was perfect and there was plenty of room for all of us. There is nothing better than the view from the front porch. We will definitely be back! Oh, the bed in the master bedroom is super comfortable.

Can't wait to return

by Sue on 01/17/2019
This was my first trip to Mariposa and it met every expectation & beyond! The beach is just steps away, lots of treasures to find on the beach; driftwood, sea glass, shells galore and even sharks teeth! We appreciated the thoughtful kitchen with blender, coffee pot, Keurig and nice, complete cookware and utensils. We cooked nearly every meal, so this was like cooking at home! We also appreciated the Plethra of TV options, even found the Cowboys football game! The owners have truly anticipated every need and did I mention every party in our group (6 women) commented how comfortable the beds were. There’s a grocery store just up the road with anything you might need, great wine selection and not overpriced. Fresh shrimp can be bought up the road a bit, look for JB fresh fish/shrimp sign, turn right and the turquoise house on the left is where you’ll find the freshest catch of the day! Can’t wait to return to the peace, fun and joy Bolivar Vacations provides! Thank you!

Great place. Nice front view.

by Md Rashedul on 01/15/2019
Great place. Nice front view.

absolutely wonderful

by Barbara on 01/09/2019
The Mariposa home is absolutely wonderful.It exceeded our expectations of a beach rental. I will definitely book again.

Wonderful house, amazing view

by Heather on 01/03/2019
This house is perfect for a nice getaway. This is our 3rd year coming here. The house has everything you need (minus food, drinks. Etc) The view is perfect. You are right on the beach and so close to the water. Our entire family loves coming here.

Everything was as expected

by Sunsearay on 12/31/2018
The house was very clean and everything was as expected

Hard to improve on perfection!

by Debra on 12/30/2018
I love Moonstone. I'm about to try one of Bolivarvacations' new houses. It will be hard to improve on the comfort of Moonstone.

What a wonderful place.

by Catherine on 12/23/2018
What a wonderful place. Location could not be better - directly overlooking the beach with easy access. Wonderfully equipped home - everything you could want in the kitchen! Comfortable and clean. Straightforward communication with rental company made everything easy. Would definitely stay there again!

My birthday weekend

by Brian on 12/20/2018
The only suggestion I would have is to let you guess know about the alarm system. That scared the entire group and if for some reason I would have been unable to get you in the phone, I'm pretty sure the alarm system would have called the cops.

Perfect Beach home

by Hope on 12/19/2018
George has excellent communication from start to finish! The home wow! It’s amazing. Porches for each bedroom and a huge lounge room as well. We will be back! Beds are so comfortable, nicely decorated. Only thing I didn’t find was a teapot... not a big deal can always use a pot. Location is perfect, away from Galveston crowd but not too far if you want to go over.

MoonStone on Crystal Beach

by Virginia on 12/12/2018
Loved the beach house. Very well equipped with anything we needed for the weekend. Very nice and clean. Loved that it was right on the beach. The only negatives that we had was the breaker tripped a couple of times on the outside lighting. Fortunately, that was an easy fix. We arrived after dark and it was really hard finding the correct driveway. So some signage nearer to the road would be nice. We really enjoyed our long weekend.


by Mia on 12/12/2018
Our stay at this beautiful beach house was nothing less than AMAZING! The ocean view mesmerizing, the home was spotless, and there was everything you needed to have a pleasant stay (pots/pans, utensils, seasonings, coffee pot, toiletries, etc). I will definitely be coming back in the near future!!!

very nice

by Vance on 12/10/2018
Cant say to much about this house that was not good. The only thing that comes to mind was one chair which the cover was coming off, we did not use that chair. Other than that we really enjoyed the place. Very nice and quiet. Basically nobody but us on the beach.

Very nice, clean and comfortable.

by Eugenia (Genie) on 12/09/2018

A wonderful vacation spot

by Timothy on 11/24/2018
Our family vacation at Splash was lovely. The accommodation has everything we needed to truly enjoy our time there. The house came well stocked with every amenity necessary, it was clean and the beachfront vista was awesome.

Had a fabulous time. Love the house

by Susan on 11/22/2018
Had a fabulous time. Love the house. Will be back in late Spring! Mike Walls is incredible! Helpers us with dead battery. So grateful! Happy Thanksgiving!

Wonderful home and location

by Wendy on 11/12/2018
Moonstone was great. Clean, roomy and comfortable. Right on the beach and only steps from the waves! Far enough from the crowds to be more relaxing but close enough to be in the high tourist area in few minutes. We loved it.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Seabatical

by Jamie on 11/08/2018
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Seabatical! The house is tastefully decorated with personal touches, it has a lot of seating in the living area with several recliners, the view is fantastic from every room, the kitchen is well-stocked, and the beds are really comfortable. Because of the location, the beach is very quiet and private. Also, the management is super! They were informative, organized, and always got back with me in a timely manner. I am really impressed with them! We are looking forward to a return trip and staying at Seabatical again.

Absolutely perfect

by Daniel on 11/02/2018
We had an amazing time. The house was perfect and the view amazing. My wife and family thoroughly enjoyed the stay and we will be back! Thank you Daniel Talley

Superior house!

by Debra on 10/29/2018
I've lost count of my stays at Moonstone. Comfortable house, amazing view. Just the best!

Awesome Getaway

by David on 10/29/2018
Thanks for sharing your wonderful property. The house was very comfortable and exceeded our expectations. It made for a great remote office as I was able to admire the view while working on my computer. No internet issues. Enjoyed the ROKU television options. Look forward to our next visit.

Perfect Beach House

by Donna on 10/27/2018
Solana is everything you could ask for in a Beach House! It is absolutely beautiful and right on the beach. We came for a high school football game and ended up having the perfect mini vacation. We will definitely choose Solana the next time we stay at Crystal Beach.

Girls weekend

by Vivian on 10/26/2018
Had a great stay with friends everything was there that we needed. Clean house and perfect location!

SPLASH VACATION-Beautiful place to stay and relax

by George on 10/23/2018
Beautiful place to stay and relax. As for the TV SERVICE much needed improvement on the system in use.

Great family vacation

by Brittany on 10/19/2018
We really enjoyed ourselves and plan to make a summer trip with the family!

Stunning Stay at SeaDreams

by Kimberly on 10/10/2018
This beach cabin getaway was exactly what my soul needed! It was far enough away from the crowds to be peaceful, and the stars danced for us at night. The cabin was well stocked and gorgeous. It was clean and spacious and beautifully designed! I could be cooking and look out and see the ocean from the kitchen! The view was everything I hoped it would be. The balcony put you just feet from the beach and waves. Gorgeous. Breathtaking. And everything I was wanting in a beach cabin vacation!

Wonderful place to stay!

by Cody on 10/03/2018
The house is very nice and well kept. It came equipped with everything you would need on a trip. My family and I were very impressed with all it had to offer. My three kids absolutely loved the house. It’s nestled at the end of Bolivar peninsula so it’s on a very quiet beach, just a few neighbors. Highly recommend this place for anyone. Very happy with our stay!

Very nice and comfy.

by Caitlyn on 10/01/2018
I took my whole family and we were all very comfortable. It is perfectly placed right on the beach.

Family Beach Trip - We loved our stay at Solana!

by Holly on 10/01/2018
We loved our stay at Solana! It's such a nice house with great accommodations. We had everything we needed. We all relaxed and enjoyed time on the beach, sat on the wonderful porch, used the grill, watched TV and used the Wifi, did lots of cooking (fresh shrimp!), etc. We also were lucky and had great weather! We will all be back again in the future. Thank you, Holly

spectacular - wonderful - awesome

by Susan on 09/26/2018
fantastic time as always - beautiful even tho it did rain some - any problems were taken care of immediately! loved the view - lots of times there was no beach due to the weather but that made for more finds the next day. love it as usual - no words can really describe - can't wait for next time.

September 2018

by Kenneth on 09/25/2018
The Home was awesome. Clean, brite and cheery. You need to add a real cutting board and a food strainer, other than those two items a well stocked kitchen. I would suggest lots of mosquito spray as we could not sit outside at all without it and no walks on the beach with out it. There was plenty of space for all 6 Adults, a family get together for catching up as we are all seniors now. Highly recommend this house the beach the area and the gorgious sunrises and sunsets. Loved Our Vacation.

Beautiful house and location

by Regina on 09/24/2018
We loved our stay at Moonstone, it’s a fabulous house! And the Roku & WiFi came in very handy when the hordes of mosquitoes kept us inside. I’d recommend this location to anyone, and would love to stay again!

Great house!

by Amy on 09/19/2018
What a wonderful house! Everything was perfect and we cant wait to come back.

Moonstone - wonderful

by Julie on 09/17/2018
The house is adorable. Well decorated and with top of the line appliances. I had trouble with the key box being difficult to open and close. I love love love the house. Suggestions: a pulley system for groceries and softer mattresses. But the house is fantastic and I will be going again some day.

Well stocked and comfortable

by Caitlyn on 09/13/2018
They have pretty much so everything you could need. We simply brought food and towels for the beach. The rest was all there. We all love the fact that there is a TV in every room and they can go watch what they want.

Splash House Review-plenty room for everyone.

by Angie on 09/12/2018
Our family had a wonderful time at the Splash House. There was plenty room for everyone. We are definitely going to booking again.

A restful retreat

by Marie on 09/12/2018
The house was beautiful and the setting so conducive to a restful weekend.....very calming to listen to the waves....this offered us a well deserved rest---> stress-free. Thank you!

The atmosphere around the beach was so relaxing

by Marilu on 09/10/2018
The accommodations were excellent. The atmosphere around the beach was so relaxing . I really recommend this for couples and families alike .


by Elizabeth on 09/06/2018
very clean, super close to the beach. Amazing staff. We will rent from here again. We are also told many of our friends and coworkers about this hidden gem.

Splash house is fantastic.

by Justin on 09/06/2018
This house is fabulous, lots of room, excellent décor and fully equipped with everything we needed. The location on the beach away from all of the crowds is the best part that we liked. Our three families and grandkids, total of 12 had plenty of room and the best time. We all agreed this is the best house we have stayed in on the beach and will be booking again in the future. We have stayed at George's beach houses in the past and our experience with George and everyone involved in the booking and service has always been excellent. We highly recommend the Splash house and Bolivar vacations in search of places to stay. Thank you George and Bolivar Vacations.

40th Anniversary

by Diana on 09/06/2018
We celebrated our 40th anniversary at Moonstone, along with our children and grandchildren. The place was fantastic! We spent hours watching the water from the deck and playing in it too! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting a beach vacation!

Amazing beach house

by Victoria on 09/04/2018
The house was excellent. Beach front with an amazing view. The interior of the house clean and very well decorated. The kitchen was well stocked with essentials. There were puzzle, books, games and DVD’s in rooms The location is great and the beach is for the most part private and clean. We will definitely be returning !

House with awesome view

by Becky on 09/04/2018
This was our 2nd stay at Moonstone, and it was just as wonderful as the first. The house is furnished with all the comforts of home, but has the added feature of a covered deck overlooking the Gulf! Wow! The sunrises/sunsets are awesome! Am sure we will be returning again.

Solana is heavenly

by Janet on 09/02/2018
Great house near the far end of the beach. Not a lot of traffic. Very quiet. All the amenities were great. We can't wait to go back with family or friends.

Must see

by Ginette on 08/31/2018
We rented this for weekend getaway absolutely blown away by the location and the place itself. Clean and beautifully decorated. Owner is very responsive and they allow pets. House is located on the first row so no obstructed view of the beach. I would just say wish there was a hair dryer in the place. Also AC worked but not as cool as we wanted. There are ceiling fans but I think a standing fan would help. We slept outside one night! Beautiful!! We’ve already booked a stay in a different house-bigger but the same management. If you’re local bring fan and hair dryer.

Great View

by Amanda on 08/28/2018
The home was in pristine condition and the view of the beach is awesome! The home had a well equipped kitchen. The 3 full baths were a plus and extremely clean! Loved it!


by Susan on 08/27/2018

Perfect for families

by Donita on 08/15/2018
The Solana is in a perfect location directly on the beach but away from all the crowds for a more private beach going experience! We loved it and it was stocked with all the equipment you need to prepare meals and enjoy the beach! We will be staying here again !

Family vacation

by Kathleen on 08/13/2018
Great location. We had neighbors but still the beach was mostly empty. The house was modern, spacious and very beach! We all enjoyed our stay.

We will definitely be back !!

Best beach experience

by Orville on 08/01/2018
This beautiful house was a stones throw from the beach. It was spacious with every amenity you could possibly want to feel at home! Our family made memories that we will cherish forever!

Family Vacation-We loved our stay

by Pam on 07/25/2018

Amazing view and perfect location

by Donita on 07/25/2018
This house was perfect in every way! It was stocked with all the things you could possibly need to prepare meals . It was clean and fresh upon arrival and had just been updated with a brand new washer and dryer units! We would definitely stay here again ! The only thing that I noticed that was a down side was the water pressure was not that great but it wasn’t a big deal.

Perfect location - beautiful home

by Becky on 07/25/2018
Seabatical was THE ideal spot for our family vacation. Right on the beach sits this beautiful, well-appointed home. The beds were comfortable, the amenities were great and being able to walk back and forth to the beach worked great with our little ones. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

For the price and location, right on the beach, Sundaze can't be beat.

by Melissa on 07/23/2018
We loved this place! The beach area was super quiet and not crowded at all in the middle of July! The house was perfect for our group of 11. The only complaint I have is that the mosquitos under the house were absolutely awful. We never felt them on the deck, but every morning going downstairs was awful, so bring some bug spray. For the price and location, right on the beach, Sundaze can't be beat.

Great Family Vacation!

by Sandra on 07/23/2018
This condo was amazing. It was like brand new, and decorated so beautiful. We had absolutely no problems. The one thing that I could be negative about is it felt as the house was swaying especially when someone was walking. But that was nothing that would keep me from renting again. This was a family vacation and we all loved the deck and the underneath it was just right for our family. Thanks so much for letting us stay at Anchors Away. Loved it so much!

Perfect Vacation Spot. Above and beyond our expectations!

by Carlos on 07/19/2018
This house was above and beyond our expectations! Beautiful, comes with everything it said, and right on the beach. Nice, quite and not crowded! It is perfect for family vacations! We will definitely be back!

Good Times

by Alida on 07/19/2018
Had my girlfriends weekend here, the view was very nice and it was comfortable. The bunk beds weren't the most comfortable and one of them incredibly squeaky, the rest of the house was very comfortable and wonderfully located. Enjoyed our stay very much.

Amazing!!! We couldn't have chosen a better house

by Sylvia on 07/18/2018
My family and I absolutely loved the house and location. We had such a restful stay. We had everything in that house that we needed. The appliances are top of the line. We couldn't have chosen a better house.

Great vacation. We had the best time!

by Lauren on 07/12/2018
It was a fantastic house, family friendly, and right on the beach!! We had the best time!

I loved the morning view

by Maria on 07/12/2018
Beautiful home, very spacious and I loved the morning view!! We will definitely rent this home next year!

Perfection -- did I mention the view??

by Holly on 07/11/2018
Beautiful Beach house, Great Place to stay, has EVERYTHING you need and the view.... did I mention the view??

July 4th trip Awesome accommodations

by Matt on 07/11/2018
We stayed at the house during the week of the 4th. Wonderful weather. Awesome accommodations, we cooked most nights on the grill. Great kitchen setup. Loved the view. Fell asleep on the porch several times. One day it was rained out and we never were bored with games and tv setup in the house.

Awesome vacation

by Mark on 07/08/2018
Sundaze was awesome the house came with everything needed to feel right at home.Being right on the beach was so beautiful everyday was great.We will definitely stay again.Thank you for sharing your home with us. Vasquez fily

New, clean & cozy.

by Tommy on 07/07/2018
New, clean & cozy.

Great beach experience!

by Jamie on 07/05/2018
Enjoyed spending the weekend with my wife and two adult daughters and friends. The last time I flew a kite I was 10 years old. Brought back childhood memories. The beach was not too crowded and the home is right on the beach. Made for a nice relaxing "Seabatical."

Best house we have ever stayed in

by Fred on 07/04/2018
Our family have been renting beach houses every summer since 1985 for our reunion and the Mariposa was by far the best house we have ever stayed in. We are looking forward to renting it every year for our retreat. Thank you for making this one our best vacations ever. FRED KETCHEM AND FAMILY.

Great Beach House at a Great Location!

by Brian on 07/03/2018
Our family of six had a great vacation at Sea Dreams. The location was awesome, just a short walk to the beach. The house is in great shape and has everything we needed. We hope to come back next summer!

The Best! I highly recommend Moonstone

by Beverly on 07/03/2018
We had a terrific time in Bolivar while staying at Moonstone. The house is lovely, inviting, comfortable, and best of all, right on the beach. We could not have been more pleased and are already planning to return there for another wonderful experience. I highly recommend Moonstone for a family or group of friends. It's the best!

We love Bolivar Vacations and will definitely use them again!

by Mertis on 07/02/2018
My husband & I rented the Solana June 11 through June 29-2018. During our almost three week stay, our children & grandchildren visited from St. Charles MO, Flower Mound TX, Lewisville TX, and Houston TX. The Solana accommodated all 13 of us just as nicely as it did just the two of us. The Solana is beautifully decorated and there are plenty of bedrooms/beds, bathrooms/showers and the kitchen was stocked with all the necessities. We were the first to rent the newly built Solana and of course there were a few “new build” issues that maintenance or house services or management were able to quickly attend to. Our favorite part of course is the location! It is a quite and clean beach with more vehicle traffic than people traffic! We love Bolivar Vacations and will definitely use them again! Thank you for helping us make family memories.

Washer and dryer were a lifesaver

by Brandi on 07/01/2018
It was a beautiful home, right on the water, right at water access, washer and dryer were a lifesaver, MOSQUITOES WERE TERRIBLE, bring something for them, we had car trouble and a death in the family on our very first day of vacation so we had to cut the trip short.

Great place!

by Ellen on 06/27/2018
SeaQuell was perfect for us. Beds were comfy, close to the beach. The kitchen had everything we needed/wanted. Ice maker did not work, but that would not stop us from coming back.

Perfect Gulf View Getaway

by Teresa on 06/25/2018
The view is amazing! The beach houses are clean and are supplied with everything you might have forgotten to pack! Incredibly quiet inside at night! This a definitely a place you want to stay and not leave. Thanks George! We’ll keep returning as long as you’ll have us!

The Perfect Get away

by Dawn on 06/25/2018
We loved our stay at Mariposa. The house is beautiful. Brand new, clean, bright and beautifully and comfortably furnished. The beds are outstanding. We all commented on how comfortable they were. If you are looking for a 1st row beachfront get away you can't beat Mariposa. Will plan to return.

Loved the house

by Susan on 06/24/2018
Really had a good time loved the house thank you for sharing.

In our portfolio for future visits for sure!

by Sam on 06/23/2018
What a wonderful home! We had an excellent time at Sea Dreams! We were a little concerned being on Bolivar as we normally stay on Galveston but it was wonderful! The house is great, beach access is super easy, and the public access road by the home was rarely used, even on Memorial Day! We were also concerned about not having any major shopping centers close by or restaurants. However, "The Big Store" had EVERYTHING we needed, and the Stingaree Marina provided a great waterfront dining experience. We plan to keep this home in our portfolio for future visits for sure!

Excellent! Excellent! Excellent!

by Dashia on 06/21/2018
Amazing customer service! Amenities! Location! Just the brdt! Dog owners& parents; this is THE place!!!

by Lisa on 06/17/2018
Great house. Minor kinks for it being brand new. Relaxing time and great location. We enjoyed sitting on the deck and listening to the waves. We will be staying there again and have already recommended it to others than have booked it!

Excellent service, house was clean and location was wonderful

by Valerie on 06/17/2018
Excellent service, house was clean and location was wonderful. We also appreciate that you sent back our camera accessories. I know you are probably unaware but the outside elctrical outlets are not functional. Husband checked the breaker and it was not tripped. This was an an inconvenience but overall we had a great experience with you and look forward to renting with you again soon. Please let us know of any specials or discounts available. We would like to do this more often if affordable 🙂

Beach time

by Zack on 06/17/2018
Having immediate access to the beach is the only way to go. We started coming to the Gulf 3 summers ago. This year, we chose Moon Stone. Great decision! Not only was the beach access a plus, the house and its amenities were very nice. Bedding, cookware, TVs in each BR, etc. The location is also perfect. Away from the crowds, but just a few minutes to get into town. I recommend this location without reservation.

Everything a family needs.

by Robert on 06/16/2018
Beautiful home. Everything a family needs. We will definitely be coming back soon.

Beautiful home with best deck to relax and take in sounds and sights of the ocean

by Pamela on 06/13/2018
This home could not have been any better,it was beyond our expectations, perfect layout, beautifully decorated, beachy. The deck and wooden deck chairs and lounges were perfect for comfort and viewing the beach. Only steps from the water and a very quiet beach.Perfect place to unwind,watch the pelicans morning and evening fly by and them diving in the water for a meal. Plan on another trip before year end and plan on staying here.

Great house!

by Amy on 06/13/2018
Loved the house, it was very clean and had everything we needed. The porch was awesome and the beach was very nice. I would love to come back anytime.


by Aubrey on 06/11/2018
We totally enjoyed SunDaze and the Crystal Beach. Perfect family vacation.

We loved the SeaQuell!

by Lauren on 06/09/2018
Absolutely loved our stay. The house was clean and spacious and the decor was perfect. We were just steps away from the beach and had everything we needed. We will definitely be renting this house again.

Great property and great location!

by Jason on 06/06/2018
The property is awesome! Great location to the beach, plenty of room for everyone. Deck is outstanding. View from both decks are great! Unfortunately the beach had a little bit of trash on it this year... I’m going to assume because it was week after Memorial Day weekend...and the wait for the ferry this year on both sides was anywhere from 2-3 hrs...really crowded...first time we’ve seen it so busy and even the Galveston folks said how unusual busy for a non-holiday it was; we’ll prep better next time, lol, but all in all the kids loved it and we did have a super good time. Great place to stay!

Back again

by Karen on 06/01/2018
This was our second stay at SunDaze. Loved the house the first time we were there so had to go back. This time we stayed 2-1/2 weeks & still didn’t want to leave when the time came. The house & location are perfect for us. I can’t say enough about how much we enjoyed the comfort the house gave us. It was truly a relaxing & peaceful time. If you love the beach, don’t miss a chance to stay at SunDaze. It’s fabulous!

Great area

by Margie on 05/31/2018
We always luv the peninsula the best and to be able to rent this beautiful home here was wonderful! After the hurricane, we were afraid properties wouldn't be the same. This house is even better and more beautiful than other homes we’ve rented before!!


by Samuel on 05/31/2018
Been to the beach on memorial day every year for about a decade except one and the 2 times we've stayed with in homes by ya'll have been our 2 favorite with the Mariposa being the best. Looking forward to booking more trips through ya'll!

Another amazing vacation!!!!

by Ashleigh on 05/30/2018
What an amazing week!!! The Moonstone was absolutely amazing and quickly became my favorite vacation spot. It literally had everything! Right on the beach for easy access, my kids kids stayed in the sand and sun, and at night while we were hang out on the deck they could relax inside with the WiFi. It truly felt like home away from home and we can’t wait to return! Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home!!!

First Class All the Way!!!

by Emily on 05/27/2018
Seadreams is first class for sure! From the amazing location on the peaceful beach to the beautiful welcoming home, our vacation was everything we dreamed of and more! The amazing home had all amenities we could want- very clean and relaxing- we didn’t want to leave, I could totally live here!! The deck outside was perfect for people watching and enjoying the perpetual breeze! Searching for sea treasures along the shores of what seemed like our own private beach- very quiet- and when we did encounter people- everyone was super friendly! Def. looking to return for future visits- this will become our go to for family beach house!! Thanks to the Scruggs for creating the most relaxing and beautiful home and sharing it with everyone!!

Perfect Stay

by Elizabeth on 05/25/2018
Our stay was wonderful! We loved the beach, the shower downstairs to wash off the sand and the amazing views. We also enjoyed a fun 1/2 day trip on the ferry and to the aquarium at Moody Gardens. We look forward to coming back.

Ready to go Back to Splash

by Breanna on 05/22/2018
Our family made the BEST memories while staying at the Splash house!! We stayed for three days and enjoyed every minute of it. We are actually having the “post beach vacation blues” right now and have already been looking at the calendar for when we can go back! The house was awesome and very accommodating for both the children and adults. The children especially loved all the toys they found in their room to play with while the adults were cooking meals in the fully stocked kitchen. We had brought some of our pans because we weren’t sure what the house had available and we never even pulled our own pans out! Next time we stay we will pack MUCH lighter. We all LOVED being able to walk to the beach at our leisure with the four kids merrily skipping around us as we strolled to the sandy beach. The beach was not busy at all and we had practically the whole beach to ourselves!! I almost hate writing this review because I feel like I’m letting our favorite vacation spot out of the bag 😉 We loved our time at Splash and the memories made. We look forward to staying here again!

Great Accommodations

by Jamie on 05/16/2018
The home had all the amenities as listed. Great location as well.

Fantastic views

by Mary on 05/16/2018
Beachfront, awesome sunrises and sunsets, quiet and peaceful

Love the House

by Cindy on 05/10/2018
love love the house and the location. this was the second year we stayed in the moonstone. We are a group of ladies that have been taking a beach trip for the past 7 years and this house has been voted as the best ever. the 2 queen beds is so much better than the bunk beds. We plan on staying at MoonStone next year too.

Nice Place to Stay

by Owen on 05/02/2018
The place is clean, comfortable, peaceful, and we enjoyed the view.

Great Girl's Weekend Destination!

by Jennifer on 05/02/2018
This house was the PERFECT location and set up for our weekend of fun! 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms allowed plenty of space and hassle free shower times! Everything was in excellent condition and the owners are very responsive and helpful. The house had everything we could need and the beach access was unbeatable. We will absolutely be booking this again!!

Great Spot!

by Terry on 04/30/2018
Really nice house and location. It has everything you need and all very well done. Very comfortable and relaxing.

Excellent Stay. Spacious and just steps from the water.

by Kristine on 04/19/2018
We had an excellent stay at SeaDreams. The home was beautiful,clean, and comfortable. It was spacious and just steps from the water. You can see for miles from the huge porch facing the Gulf. We will definitely rent this home again!

Quiet Getaway

by Henry on 04/19/2018
A great house and view. Would highly recommend a visit to the Anahuac Wildlife Refuge about 20 miles away. Support and response to questions was excellent. Highly recommend these properties for a quiet getaway.

We will be back!

by Suzanna on 04/18/2018
We were very pleased with the house and accommodations. It exceeded our expectations. We will be back!

Great stay!

by Carole on 04/15/2018
Had some family stay for a few days of our vacation. Great home. Love the beach house!


by Dave on 04/03/2018
The cottage was wonderful, clean, well equipped, in great condition and very comfortable. The great porch with ocean view was awesome. Beach location was great and easy access - shelling was fun. Appreciated the beers in fridge after the 23 hour drive!


by Wesley on 03/20/2018
We stayed spring break in this house. We enjoyed this beach front home. The house being steps from the water and being in Gilchrist made it feel almost like we had the beach to ourselves. Having our grandkids with us, this house was perfect for our family!! We will be back!

Nice with great beach view!

by Shelley on 03/20/2018
Very nice place! We loved the view, the outside patio furniture was great! The beds were very comfortable with nice linens! Thanks!

View was Amazing

by Elizabeth on 03/08/2018
The house was beautiful and very clean. The view was amazing. We would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful new house with a great view and awesome amenities

by Kevin on 02/28/2018
Couldn't be happier with our stay. Plenty of room for 10 people. The big kitchen island is a life saver. The patio set is pretty much the best thing ever.

Perfect Getaway

by Kasey on 02/26/2018
Everything was perfect for a relaxing get away. The house was beautiful, well stocked, comfortable and steps away from the beach. Hope to stay here again.

Beautiful View and Property!

by Lee on 02/21/2018
We really enjoyed our stay at Moonstone! The house itself is very well-maintained and the location cannot be beat. We could walk out the back door straight to the beach! The view was incredible. We can’t wait to return!

Wonderful View

by Brenda K on 02/07/2018
Enjoyed a brief but lovely stay at this gorgeous beachside house. We couldn’t have been happier with the accommodations. Would definitely stay again.

This is a Keeper!

by Irene on 12/11/2017
We had a wonderful time with our off-season visit to MoonStone. Rather remote but very relaxing, beautiful home, fully furnished kitchen with high end appliances and kitchen accessories. The house looked new, well maintained, very clean, and plush towels in the bath. Bedrooms are large with comfortable beds and plush bedding. The view of the ocean is breath taking whether viewing from inside in the living and kitchen area or the patio. Deck furniture is oversized and great to sit on for your morning coffee at sunrise or evening happy hour. We are excited to make our plans for another visit when the weather is warmer. This is a keeper! Response


by Henry on 11/22/2017
We really enjoyed our stay. We try to vacation on the beach every year, and Sun Daze was a fantastic property. It was equipped wonderfully and just a few steps to the beach. Will definitely come back here or to one of the owners other properties. The few questions I had were immediately answered by the owner's service contact. Couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable experience!

Beautiful place !

by Jennifer on 11/15/2017
Beautiful place . They took care of us will be back .

Wonderful house and view!

by Lana on 11/13/2017
Wonderful house in a great location to relax and enjoy the beach. House was very nice and comfortable for our party of 7 to enjoy. The inside was very roomy and had everything you needed plus more to enjoy time away from home and the large deck was a great place to sit out enjoy the wonderful view of the gulf with very close beach access. Just minutes away from a nice grocery store and a couple of restaurants. We will definitely stay again one day. Also very friendly and helpful owner for any questions or concerns.

Top of the list!

by Michael on 11/10/2017
My husband & I thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing down time at Sea Dreams! The accommodations were beautiful, just perfect & completely furnished, the private location could not have been better and we wanted for nothing other than more time to stay! We are looking for a beach house rental to return to periodically and for an extended 3 week stay in the summer so our children & grandchildren can join us for some family time. Sea Dreams is at the top of our list so far! Thank you!

Beautifully decorated and brand new!

by Angela on 11/06/2017
I stayed here with a group of 10 ladies. The house was cozy and comfortable, beautifully decorated and looked brand new. The kitchen was stocked with every item we needed to prepare our meals. The beach was not busy and very clean. We did not have a single issue during our stay. The mosquitos were bad under the house sometimes. Thankfully, there was Off in the pantry! I will definitely consider staying here again. Thank you so much!

Had a blast!

by Gina on 11/05/2017
My husband and I spent 11/2/17 - 11/5/17 to celebrate our anniversary. The location is perfect with fantastic views, beach sounds and breezes! Sea Dreams is beautiful inside and out; very nice, clean, and has all the amenities you may need. We will definitely stay here again! Our dogs enjoyed it as well so this was another plus that we could bring them with us. It is also 5 minutes from the big grocery store and many restaurants/bars are close by. Rollover Pass is close as well. We love fishing but did not do so this trip but enjoyed watching so many fishing and catching! Again, we had a blast. Thank you:)

Always a delight!

by George on 10/29/2017
Always a delight to stay at Sea Dreams. Just finished up a 6 day vacation there with my wife and another couple. It was without a doubt a beautiful relaxing place to kick back and enjoy the view and relax in this beautiful ocean front home on the beach. This was our second year there and is well worth going back to. Thanks George for letting us stay at your place.

Perfect Home

by Elizabeth on 10/29/2017
This vacation home is perfect. Beautiful views, easy access to the beach, awesome front porch, super helpful outside shower (with hot water!!!), great local seafood, .... everything needed to help a family feel right at home. My children loved it from the moment of arrival. We can’t wait to come back. Thank you!!!

Great location

by Amber on 10/25/2017
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Great location - directly on beach, fully equipped home. Had the pleasure of meeting the owners of the property - very nice people and made us feel welcome. We will be renting from them again and will suggest all family and friends to do the same.

Perfect and magical!

by Dawn on 10/23/2017
We had a perfect weekend and the house was such a joy! It was comfortable and the view is outstanding! We sat on the deck until late into the night looking at the stars and woke up early to see the magical sunrise. We will be back!

The perfect week!

by Eric on 10/23/2017
The house was great ! The sunrises are to die for. Walks on the beach with the dog, reading a book on the deck, a drink at sunset. Went over to Galveston for a fishing trip, caught a ton of red fish. Came back to the house and grilled them up plus a bunch to bring home. Could not have been a better week. Can't wait for our second trip back next year !

Relaxing Getaway!

by Paula on 10/20/2017
This was our second time of staying here and I am sure we will be back! Just a short walk to the beach and great view from the decks! House was clean and well equipped with everything you need for a relaxing get away!

Highly recommend!

by Rhonda on 10/19/2017
Had a wonderful Nana, granddaughter, daughter, niece and sister week at the beach. The house was wonderful and best we have had over the many beach trips we have had. Highly recommend.

Immaculate House

by Cathy on 10/19/2017
The house was immaculate, well stocked kitchen, extra touches all around, like the candies, the Coronas for the beach, even extra blankets and plenty of pillows! We loved the privacy of the first row, no houses to either side, just the beach! Thank you for sharing your home with us, we will be returning!

Very Enjoyable

by David on 10/11/2017
Our second trip to Moonstone was even more enjoyable than the first. We love hanging out on the deck or walking on the beach. It's a great place to unwind, cook some great food and let the sound of the ocean clear your head. We've also learned that there is very well stocked grocery store a few miles west in case we forgot something! We are keeping this place on our short list for getaways.


by Kathy on 10/01/2017
This was our second year to spend a family weekend at SunDaze and it was wonderful! With the beach just steps away, it is the perfect location for leisurely walks, shell hunting and this trip, we even had a kite to fly with our granddaughter. The house is immaculate with everything a family needs to enjoy their vacation. Despite the cool weather, coffee on the deck watching the sunrise was one of the highlights of our weekend. Mr. Scruggs stopped by to drop off some new pillows and visited for a few minutes. Very hands-on, which is always appreciated. We can’t thank Mr. and Mrs, Scruggs enough for sharing this wonderful property with our family! We’re already looking forward to next year!

Even better than advertised!

by Jeff on 09/29/2017
Even better than advertised! Very nice house. Quiet Surroundings, easy beach access. My wife and I were looking for a quiet place to get away for a few days and this is it. The beach was not crowded. Lots of shells that would be great for collecting if you are into that. We will definitely be back!!

Bit of Paradise

by Jeanette on 09/25/2017
The house is well-kept, clean, spacious, modern with a lot of extra touches that make your stay more comfortable and special. The furnishings are top of the line selections; the house is just beautifully decorated. Got a good night's sleep on very comfy beds and enjoyed the awesome deck for a morning cup of coffee. The owners also went the extra step in having some beach supplies/toys which was really nice. The walk to the beach is so short and honestly right out the door. Loved the privacy and seclusion. Thank you for sharing this bit of paradise with our family ! We will be back!

Excellent view

by Susan on 09/23/2017
Excellent view right on water. Can't even begin to describe it. Amenities were super. Just like home right down to the electric candles. Beautifully furnished and fully stocked kitchen, bath and bedrooms. Can't wait for next visit. Definitely spoiled us. And our little yorkie had a blast. Love love loved it!!!!!!


by Holly on 09/22/2017
This was such a fun trip. Brought my two boys to see the ocean for the first time and oh my goodness they LOVED it! This house is beautiful and had every single thing you could imagine!! I love the deck and the view ! we left our sand toys for the next family to enjoy. This beach is beautiful loaded with shells even found two sand dollars. This was the best time ever!

Amazing Stay!

by Vanessa on 09/20/2017
Amazing stay! We had a fantastic experience at The SeaQuell. It was such a beautiful and clean property with an amazing view and walking distance to the beach. The kitchen was fully stocked with all cookware. The bedrooms are very nice and spacious. I was fortunate to stay in the master suite which had a great view from its own balcony. The house was large enough to accommodate our group. I would definitely recommend this house to everyone. From the initial booking to the refund of our deposit, has been seamless. I cannot thank Kiersten enough for being such a gracious hostess. She was very prompt in replying to all my emails and accommodated all of our needs/requests. We would definitely stay at this beach house again!

Great location

by Todd on 09/18/2017
The property was in a great location with the beach in the front yard. House was clean and comfortable. With this being my first rental on VRBO, I was new to some of the procedures. The owners always responded quickly! Thank you.

Great Getaway!

by Michael on 09/13/2017
The owners of this beach house were so great to work with and quick to respond to any need we had. We would love to stay here again next year and will be referring our friends to MoonStone. We love to surf and paddle board on the water and our kids play for hours in the sand and water. Great Getaway!

We will be back!

by Sherry on 09/12/2017
My husband, myself and another couple just spent a long weekend at SeaQuell. The house is beautiful and the location is supurb! Everything essential was provided, the house was immaculate and the beach just steps away. We will be back!

Most wonderful experience!

by Neal on 09/07/2017
I had the most wonderful experience staying at MoonStone. Waking up to the ocean outside your front door, walking down the beach early in the morning, and having all the comforts of home will make you feel like you never want to leave. George (owner) is the best!! Top notch service. Great communication. I could go on for days why I highly recommend MoonStone.

If only we could stay forever!

by Whit on 08/29/2017
Our timing was fantastic as it was the last full week before Hurricane Harvey. The home was what it was advertised to be. Fully furnished with everything you could want/need. The bedrooms were very comfortable and everything was nice and clean. We really enjoyed the deck and being beachfront. A weeks stay went by too quickly. We all said "If only we could stay forever". This is the very best place to stay on the Peninsula. George was very easy to talk to and very prompt on getting back with us. We hope to enjoy this wonderful beachfront home for many years to come.

Private beach access!

by Joseph on 08/27/2017
The house has private access to the beach, is well-equipped and beautiful. Great layout for our family - we will be back!

Most amazing time!

by Shane on 08/23/2017
We had the most amazing time, we stayed 8/14 to 8/18. The house is very spacious, very clean, you will find everything you need in the kitchen, and even beach toys! The location can't be beat as it is literally on the beach! We were the only ones there most days! Wish we could have stayed longer but we for sure will be returning!! Thank you for a great experience!!

Again and again

by Sabrina on 08/22/2017
I've rented the SeaQuell twice now and we love it every time. It is perfect for a small family like ours. The rooms are spacious and simply beach decorated and not cluttered. The livingroom and kitchen are all open and spacious. Couch is really comfortable. The beach view is fantastic from the deck. The beach is so close and an easy walk. The master bedroom deck is perfect get-a-way for morning coffee or a adult beverage away from others. We will definitely rent this location again and again.

Super clean

by Sarah on 08/18/2017
This was our second stay at SunDaze, and it was just as amazing as the first. The property is super clean, well appointed with plenty of towels and paper goods, and has fantastic proximity to the beach! We spent the majority of our time on the fantastic balcony enjoying the views and sea breeze. We can't wait to come back next summer!

Million dollar views!

We enjoyed the atmosphere of being in a home, gathered with family and friends for a cozy, quiet, and relaxing weekend with million dollar views! It is better than any hotel!

Awesome family memories

My family and I had a wonderful time! The close proximity to the beach was amazing. I've never stayed in a beach house that had such an easy access. You literally walk down the stairs, off the patio, and walk straight to the beach. ( maybe 50-60yrds) We easily wheeled a cooler on the access road but quickly realized we were so close to the house we didn't need it. We had everything we needed in the kitchen and bathrooms. We stayed for 4 nights 5 days and didn't have to leave the house once we bought groceries. Very relaxing and we are already planning dates for our trip next year!!! THANKS FOR HELPING CREATE SOME AWESOME FAMILY MEMORIES. George also responded quickly to any questions I emailed.

Loved this house!

Family Vacation, 4 Days of relaxation. Loved this house. The view facing sideways to the beach turned out to be our favorite thing. The large porch was shaded at all the right times. We spent so much time out there. Also, the tall table and tall chairs were fabulous. They were so comfortable, and you could see the view so well. Loved all the added touches. Our girls are already ready to go back. We will return, next time, for much longer. Thank you so much.

The beachfront location of Sea Dreams is perfect! No houses to the left or right of you. All you see is the gulf. The 3 bedroom house was perfect for us. Very clean and modern. We will definitely be back!

Wonderful time!

We came with our family from Ireland and had such a wonderful time. House was clean comfortable with the couch on the porch one of our favorite spots ❤️ We are currently driving home and missing the house and planning our dates for next year. Thank you so much❤️

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Sea Quell. The deck is Amazing, the house was PERFECT for us. Everyone had plenty of room and watching the Sunrise or set over the beach was awesome. LOVED the sound of the ocean while sitting on the deck. PERFECT location.

Very pretty

The pictures of the property don't do it justice. Was much prettier in person. Loved the view of the ocean and how close and accessible it is. The beach was great and full of shells. Our two families had a wonderful time. Would definitely go back.

Amazing time!

Exactly like the pictures! We had such an amazing time. The beach was so close and easy to get to. The patio was great and enclosed so it was easy to have the kids out there. I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay at. One of our favorite things was going to the beach at night and looking for crabs. Thanks so much for letting us stay!

Best one in the Area

Great location. We went down for Memorial Day Weekend and it was great. Walking distance to the beach. Loved the outdoor patio, I think it's the best one in the area. Will definitely return. There was a grassy area behind it that we utilized to play games. it was a great time.

Best beach trip ever!

by Laura on 05/29/2017
BEST beach trip ever! We go every year and this was our most memorable so far. I have been going to Crystal Beach since I was a kid. My own kids made some favorite memories at Seadreams this year. The view is wonderful and you can sit on the porch and still watch the kids. It was nice to sleep with the windows open hearing the sound of the ocean waves. Quiet part of the beach - not as much traffic, so it's perfect for families.

Fabulous! This was our second time staying at Sea Dreams and as before we were not disappointed. The beach house itself is located in the perfect spot. ( front row) It comfortably accommodated 5 adults and 3 children with no problem at all. The other family members and guests we invited for a day on the beach were extremely impressed with the quality and provisions the beach house provided. From the captain chairs on the deck to the microwave, refrigerator, towels, washer and dryer and laundry detergent I could go on and on describing the wonderful amenities. We definitely will rent again.

Loved the pelicans!

by Sylvia on 05/17/2017
We had a fantastic time at your beach house. It is beautiful inside and I really liked the arrangement of the rooms and the wood floors. The deck outside over looking the ocean is perfect! The grandkids loved watching the pelicans fly by overhead.

Relaxing Getaway!
