⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Blew our expectations. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We had 3 generations staying together and all of us left with fond memories. The ambiance was fantastic. Shirley was so attentive and responsive. The property had everything we could wish for – from amenities to decor to furniture to ocean views. The multilevel decks were amazing and we had our morning meals outdoor. The beach was less than a five minute walk. Bring mosquito repellent for the short walk to the beach.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Great Getaway. Always wanted to try a beach house rental but just never could do it. The Island Girl proved that we should have done it sooner! Our whole family enjoyed everything about our 4 day stay. We all thought the time passed too quickly. The experience was totally first class, from the clean and comfortable accommadations with a nice beach view, the convenient community pool ,to the family friendly location on Crystal Beach. Special thanks to Shirley, the property manager, for all the personal touches that made our vacation a lasting ,happy memory. We hope to return some day. Garry N., Stayed Sep, 2020

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ The attention to every little detail was exemplary. The house was exceptionally clean. Tons of outdoor space to eat and relax. Short walk to the beach was perfect. The community pool was wonderful too. Clean and a good size. The yard was really nice to have for our dogs to roam in after a long car ride. The community is quiet and we felt very safe. Shirley worked with us on our check in and out, which we really appreciated. We felt so welcome with the gift basket, complete with treats for our 4 legged family and a sign welcoming us. Shirley and the owners really paid attention to even the smallest detail related to creature comforts and home away from home. Couldn’t recommend any higher. Hope to make an Island Girl stay a yearly visit. T. C., Texas September, 2020

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ We were thrilled to have a safe getaway to Island Girl. The house was so welcoming with the generous snack basket, fun sign and thoughtful note. The house is very clean and well appointed and the wagon was helpful to get our beach toys to the beach. Overall, it was a lovely stay and we would highly recommend this home to anyone coming to Bolivar. Kristen, Texas Published Sept 7, 2020

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Perfect! We loved our stay at the Island Girl! Beautiful home and plenty of room and owner has not overlooked any detail. Very short walk to beach and located in a beautiful neighborhood. Very relaxing atmosphere. We are already talking about going back next summer. Rae-Ann R., Texas Published Aug 15, 2020

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Girls get-away. We really enjoyed our stay at Island Girl! The house was very clean upon arrival – a must in these COVID times – making us feel welcome and safe. A thoughtful gift basket greeted us as well. Island Girl was nicely appointed (just as pictured), and a short walk to the beach, yet away from the bustle of the summer beach crowds to the west – the perfect location for a girls get-away. Shirley – our property manager – was very accommodating, and a wonderful communicator for our pre-arrival questions! Would definitely stay here again! Grant G., Texas Published Aug 13, 2020

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐Our family vacation at Island Girl We had so much fun on our vacation. The property was excellent. Everything was so clean and such comfortable rooms for everyone to enjoy. The location was perfect. Water views from both decks and plenty of room. The house was well stocked and we were able to cook almost every meal there and there was lots of seating for meals, both indoor and out. We will definitely make a return trip to Island Girl.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐Great week at Island Girl Spent a week at Island Girl. Super clean. Tons of room for the nine of us. We rented a six seater golf car from golf car connection and drive it to the beach each day. They deliver and pick up. Mostly cooked our own meals but did eat at Steve’s Landing and I highly recommend it. We rent condos cabins and beach houses every year. This was by far the best stocked and cleanest we have ever stayed in. The pool was great and never crowded. Finally Shirley and the owners were awesome. You will not be disappointed booking this house. Lance M., July 2020

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Fantastic House! Two families spent 4 days at Island Girl and had a great time. The house met or exceeded our expectations. It was immaculately clean and cutely decorated. Best of all Shirley thinks of everything. The house had all the kitchen, bathroom and other amenities you could think of. Plus there were snacks and water when we arrived. The house is also at a great location. Nice quiet neighborhood with very short easy walk to the beach. Definitely recommend. Andrea S, Austin, TX, July 2020

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ This was the cutest, CLEANEST house on the most perfect stretch of beach (we know – we traveled it on a golf cart!)!!! All the amenities were perfect as if our needs had been anticipated! We loved it and will be remembering Island Girl for the next time we visit Bolivar. W & G families, The Woodlands and Wimberley, TX, June 2020.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ This was the perfect “time away” that our family needed. The house was perfect and Shirley made sure we had everything we needed. We will definitely be back. Mari D.

First, Thank you for not canceling our reservation because of the pandemic! Our families all came from different directions to make memories together! We did just that!! Your home is lovely – very well stocked and extremely comfortable. Love the location, the ability to enjoy the view of the water from the upper deck. The pool was a great perk – and the lift was a total lifesaver. God bless you all, and good luck! Hope to see you again some day.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Island Girl is much more than any beach house we’ve rented (and we’ve been coming here for more than 20 years)! – Our trip was great – good wifi, nice hosts and a beautiful house! Most of us were working alot but when we weren’t we went to the beach or pool – both very close! We enjoyed the house and the hospitality (the snacks, water, and ice were great). Thank you for the great stay – we had a blast!! #coronacation2020

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Island Girl is like your friend has given you the keys to their place – an immaculately clean place, which is super important right now. Everything works and the manager is available if you need anything (which we didn’t). Having the golf cart there when we arrived saved a lot of time and is the mode of transportation choice for the short jaunt to the beach. Great spot for even an elderly family member with the lift going to all levels. We really had a good time. Telling our cooped up friends in Houston about it – easy getaway during this current lockdown situation. We hope to come back very soon.

Had a blast – sad to be leaving! Beautiful house, great views, great accomodations! Had a blast. Sad to be leaving. Property was immaculate, and the hospitality was great! While there’s Wifi and all the amenities, with the Ocean view from the deck, it’s easy to relax and completely disconnect. Beach is great for walks and morning jogs, pool is right across the street. I definitely plan on visiting again! Coronacation 2020!

What a wonderful place!
Island Girl is such a magical location with a great view and access to the beach. The fenced in yard was a nice perk. We would love to return! Wake-beach-deck-beach-sleep-repeat! We loved your “Island Girl”. She was very good to us! See you next time.

Love being able to hear and see the ocean from the house!
Very nice get-a-way with the family (including 2 toddlers). Hope to be back when it is warm to use the pool. Very thankful you provided the toilet paper since the lady in front of us at Dollar General loaded up 2 carts and took it all – thanks to Coronavirus! Our teenagers LOVED their little get-a-way room downstairs! Love being able to hear and see the ocean from the house.

Love the view from the large deck!
The property was perfect for our Girlfriends’ getaway! Everything in the house was immaculate and inviting. We hope to return again. Thanks!

Perfect for us!
This house was beautiful and everything we needed was there. The location was just what we wanted it. It was quiet and beach accessible via a cross bridge for foot or golf cart usage. Loved the room downstairs for someone who didn’t want to keep going up and down stairs although the lift made the whole house accessible. The little things were amazing and the house was decorated very tastefully. There were six of us and we were comfortable in every room and amazed by this space. I would buy this house if I could! 🙂 Last but not least was the property manager Shirley – amazing lady! She was very quick to answer any questions I had no matter how trivial. Everything was laid out and explained clearly. You won’t regret renting this property – we will definitely be back!
