Pelican Bob's Dugout is a family-friendly beach house in a quiet neighborhood. This 2nd row beach getaway is packed with amenities.

About Robert Giles

Family owned beach house where we get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Crystal Beach is a non-commercialized area that is very family-friendly and low-key. This is a great place to spend a weekend enjoying the sun, waves, and beach by sitting on the deck or walking a few yards to the beach.

The home and property are clean and beautiful. It exceeded our expectations. Also, the owners were wonderful to communicate and work with. Our weekend was fantastic! Would definitely book here again if available.

House was beautiful, plenty of space especailly on bottom porch area.

  • 3 of 5

Nice house with plenty of room and 2 awesome decks. There was lots of space at the bottom with a cool outdoor kitchen. A bathroom was also included for convienence. We really loved the fact there was an outdoor shower and a place to rinse off your feet. However there were some questionable items. The grill was old, rusty and I didnt want to use it so I ended up using my own. My wife found pills on the floor upstairs and one of the beds upstairs wasnt made and the comforter was just rolled up plus there was no Linens. One guest of ours found used feminine trash in the bathroom upstairs that were not ours and they were probably left from the last guest which was kind of disgusting. Basically it looks like as if there was no cleaning done on some of the areas before we got there however overall the house is nice and it was mostly ready to go with the exception of the things I mentioned so yes I would recommend this place. Also some of the food that was left behind probably from past guests was expired and that was also pretty nasty. They would have been better off just taking their food back or throwing that away. My only criticism is that they improve their cleaning service or whoever cleans that place.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback. Normally I check everything before the rental weekend: however, I was out of state at the time. The house has been thoroughly cleaned and I will be sure this does not happen again.

Very nice Cabin with many amenities and great location.

  • 4 of 5

Great location just off beach with (2) beach accesses. Also just minutes from most of the main Bolivar Peninsula establishments on Hwy 87. Very nice and roomy Cabin with many extra amenities (inside and out). Definitely at the top of our list for our next stay on the Peninsula.

Pelican Bob's Dugout 2016 Go Topless Jeep Rally

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time renting a beach house. The owners made this very easy and communicated with me great. The place had two easy access points to the beach. The house had a very good view of the water from the balcony, was very clean, tidy, plenty of bathrooms and the beds were very comfortable. I defiantly would recommend staying here again.

Long needed family weekend

  • 5 of 5

I almost don't want to write a review for this property because I want to keep it my little secret. The house was perfect for what we needed/wanted. The deck was fantastic for letting my 1 year old walk around because there was a gate at the stairs. The bedrooms were the perfect size. The patio below the house was very big for the kids to play around and where the concrete ended it was grass. So there was always somewhere for them to venture to. Close to the beach. Nice views. Great neighborhood. The house is lovingly maintained and the owners are not only very accommodating but gracious as well. We hope that we can make this an annual family trip!
