we enjoyed being on the east end of peninsula it is very peaceful we arrived on Thursday and enjoyed a quite walk on beach with our dog weekends you have more traffic there but was still peaceful you must realize that the kitchen and living room and master better are on the top level that is a lot of stairs the lift was very helpful for bringing up grocery's etc. it was a large place just for two but we rented it because it was pet friendly we will come back to crystal beach area but will not stay here again because of all the steps as we are senior citizens

Everything was perfect! The house is well equipped with tons of amenities! The location couldn’t have been better!

This was our third visit to the Love Shack. We think it is the perfect location on Bolivar Peninsula if you like to be just steps away from the beach while being able to observe the ship channel from the other side of the house. This is a comfortable rental but be aware, there are 4 flights of stairs and the last level is steep. Thankfully, there is a lift for luggage and groceries and each year we appreciate it more. This is our happy place.

We loved our home away from home so much! The beach was quiet and felt kind of private because there were no home to one side and a vacant home on the other side. We already miss it so much. The only complaint we had was the home needed sharper knives. Other than that, it was great! Would stay again if we have only a couple of families. Thanks for sharing the home and easy check in and out at Cobb!

We just concluded our second visit to the Love Shack on Bolivar Peninsula. The property is well maintained, and quite simply, the best location on the peninsula with ocean/beach views as well as the bay and intercoastal waterway. The house comes with a lift, which is indispensable. Terrific beach access. Depending on the time of year and day of the week, you will likely be the only folks on the beach.

We had a great time and I would stay here again. This made our second visit to the love shack and both times we enjoyed it.

We chose Love Shack for it's beautiful view, beach access and cozy feel, to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. Upon arrival we were not disappointed, very nice place! we quickly unpacked, took a quick walk to the beach then got ready for dinner. We dined at Steve's Landing, a place advertised with the welcome packet and by a menu placed/left on the counter. We really enjoyed our meal.... That's where the "love" ended. Within a few hours of eating at Steve's the food poisoning symptoms began. We spent the rest of the anniversary weekend sick, in bed; too weak to walk across the room, much less enjoy this beautiful beach front property. We do not blame Cobb's reality for our bad dinning experience, however do feel better discretion in who you advertise would be wise. We tried expressing this point to the desk clerk but were rudely interrupted. She showed no concern in our experience or our health.(Reason for 2 *)
So, as for our Romantic Anniversary Getaway ... Poisoned. However, The Love Shack is one shack we'd stay in again.
Property description is accurate. The property was well maintained (lift door needs fixed). It was clean except for the excessive dog hair on the down stairs bed. Free DVD's :) We would definitely recommend this property to a friend and hopefully we can try again.

We met up with another couple for a long weekend. I'd never stayed that far east before, and I was AMAZED at how much open space we had near us. The place was perfect, spotlessly-clean, well-furnished, and HUGE.

The property is a great getaway. There is only one neighbor and the property is screened well for privacy. The home is well stocked for cooking. I plan on returning to this house when it is available. The beach front location is stunning and the location is far enough away from the main town, but not to far of a drive. It is only 7 minutes to the big store.
Amy A.on 03/17/2016
This was a perfect vacation rental for my family, it's a walk to the beach. Will definitely be vacationing here again! The property description was very accurate. The house is very well maintained and equipped with everything you need.Cobb Real Estate was very helpful and professional!

Great cabin, great deck...fabulous view! Just wish it was not just a 7 day rental...5 day is perfect for most families. If we don't rent it again, this is the only reason why.

We always love renting the Love Shack. It is in a great location. The house is always clean and well kept up. Love that they have a shower downstairs for after the beach! We will be renting again next year!
Kim R.on 07/20/2015
Very great time.
Deborah R.on 06/22/2015
My family and I had a very nice, quiet, relaxing getaway. We thoroughly enjoyed sunning on the deck with our ocean views, the sounds of the waves and breezy skies. We can't wait to return.

We had a great vacation while at Crystal Beach. The Love Shack is a perfect house for two couples and for dogs. Great views!!! We will return to Love Shack in the future.
Carol L.on 09/13/2014
The house was so nice, and right on the beach. We had a wonderful relaxing time.
Danelle G.on 08/11/2014
Our family had a great time relaxing in Bolivar at the Love Shack! Always a breeze blowing, quiet, and peaceful. The beach house had everything we needed - with perfect access to the beach. A perfect escape from the crowds of Galveston!
Holly H.on 05/01/2014
Location was great. No Outside lighting around the walk ways,dangerous going up/down stairs. Report issue with toilet and was told someone would come fix it, but no one showed up and we had 9 people using 1 bathroom.
This house is perfectly placed right on the beach front
We rented this cabin for a little get away and got just what we needed! The house was immaculate and have us everything we needed. We loved having the washer boards and horseshoes available. What was even better was our view and easy access to the beach only a few steps away. We will definitely be back again!
Had a great time. This house is secluded from the crowds, but it does attract a lot of fishermen, but they don't seem to get in the way much. If you like being away from the crowds, but still love the beach, this is the house for you. The house is nice, but the two levels are not connected inside, so you have to go outside to go upstairs or down to the other rooms. That is not made known in the description, so if you have an issue with this beware. It did not bother us, but our children are older. The house does shake A LOT every time you move or walk around. I know most beach houses shake, but this one shakes A LOT! The yard is also infested with grass burrs, so bring your shoes to play in the yard! The shower area is awesome, very roomy, lots of room for space. The decks are great as well and perfect for afternoon hangouts.
We loved staying in the Love Shack! The lift is great but needed some minor repairs. The house is spacious and right on the beach. We all had a wonderful time and will definitely return to Crystal Beach and rent from Cobb Real Estate!
We spent a lovely week at the Love Shack in October 2014. This property and location provides the "on the beach" experience you hope for but are never sure you will really get. The views of the ocean as well as the bay and the intracoastal waterway are easily accessible from the well thought out decks. The beach is approximately 62 steps away, a true thrill if you enjoy walking along the shore and observing wildlife and picking up shells. The lift to tote your belongings and the secured entrance are worth the rental fee alone. Two caveats: if you read the previous reviews you'll note a pattern of problems with the mezzanine bedroom's air conditioning. It was not working during our visit. Also, unfortunately, another home is under construction next door and as another reviewer noted, it is indeed almost close enough to touch. However, no one was working on the home during our visit so we did indeed have the place to ourselves...with the exception of the weekend when fishermen showed up to fish along the shore. But they were entertaining! We would certainly consider this property for a return rental. Enjoy!
Loved the house and the set up.
Property was great
The kitchen and master bath on the highest level - upscale appliances and plenty of space! Three pull out couches that save space were comfy! The lower bedroom w two queen beds were comfortable as well. Slept great to the sound of crashing waves and an absolutely breathtaking view! RIGHT on the beach! Very private and the large party deck w lots of lounging space and bar/barstools area was great for the kids to eat outside and relaxing at night! Defiantly a 10! Would absolutely go back to this rental at the drop of a dime!
