Location + Surroundings
This elevated cabin is located in Port Bolivar, Texas, where it is situated on the southern end of the Bolivar Peninsula, just steps away from Galveston Bay. The rental is just a five-minute drive from the peninsula's beach, which stretches on for 27 miles. Crystal Beach is 12 minutes to the southwest. About 30 minutes to the east, guests will find the beginning of a number of protected natural areas: McFaddin National Wildlife Refuge, Texas Point National Wildlife Refuge, Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge, and Sea Rim State Park.
The contiguous McFaddin and Texas Point refuges encompass more than 67,000 acres of coastal marshes and prairies, which provide habitats to abundant wildlife and birdlife. An astonishing 285 species of bird having been documented to date—some of them full-time resident, many of them migratory, as the area is an important resting stop on the Central Flyway. Other residents of the refuges include American alligators, river otters, and muskrats.
Around Crystal Beach and the Bolivar Peninsula, guests will find a variety of restaurants, a nine-hole golf course (Crystal Beach Community Golf Course), a miniature golf course (Gulf Range Miniature Golf Course), and other attractions, such as the Bolivar Point Lighthouse and Rollover Pass. The cabin is about two hours from Houston, where the nearest international airport is located. Read More

For nature walking, wildlife viewing, and birdwatching, guests can head to the nearby McFaddin National Wildlife Refuge, Texas Point National Wildlife Refuge, Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge, and Sea Rim State Park.
Guests can go golfing at the Crystal Beach Community Golf Course and putt-putt golfing at the Gulf Range Miniature Golf Course. For a leisurely way of exploring the peninsula, guests can rent a six-seat golf cart (a popular mode of transportation among locals) from companies such as Golf Car Connection.
