About The Ivey Family

Pelican's Perch is the dream come true for our extended family. Four of us own the property--three born on the island of Galveston, and one New Jersey-born lady who has spent most of her life in Texas. We have children and grandchildren and wanted a place where we could all gather and enjoy precious time together.

The Ivey Family purchased this house in 2017

Why The Ivey Family chose Crystal Beach

The simple beauty of the home, the smart use of space, and the fact that it was a four bedroom property were the selling points for us. Across the street from the home is a "buyout" lot--one that cannot be built upon. This open lot increases the feel of spaciousness as you relax on the deck. We hope you will agree that Pelican's Perch is your new home away from home. Come see turtles, blue crabs, pelicans, egrets, and more. Lose your stress as you reconnect with family.

What makes this house unique

We are beachfront quality without the beachfront price. We have paid attention to every small detail to help you enjoy your stay. Pelican's Perch is relaxing inside and out and will be a perfect family getaway.

The Ivey Family has gone above and beyond to make sure their guests are comfortable and right at home. Their attention to detail was extraordinary! The beach house was very clean and we felt right at home with all of the amenities provided. The location is great and just a short walk to the beach or you can even drive your car and park on the beach (with a $10 parking permit bought at grocery store). There is plenty of room if you are vacationing with extended family. The bunk beds are both full mattresses and were perfect for the four kiddos we had. If you need anything during your stay don’t hesitate to contact Karen or Adriann- they are a delight and very helpful. I would highly recommend staying here when you visit Crystal Beach. Thank you Ivey Family for making our vacation a comfortable and enjoyable one!

Great for multiple families!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home and spent Sunday thru Thursday in this home. It was very nicely decorated and everything was newer and well taken care of. We cooked several meals here and the stocked kitchen had everything we needed. Our group was (2) families of 4, and the setup was perfect for us. The beach is a 5 minute walk away and we rented a golf cart to assist in trips back and forth for the bathroom. The downstairs shower was awesome for all of us to rinse off before we headed upstairs. The huge island in the kitchen was perfect for all of us to eat at and also sit around and play games in the evening. The washer & dryer were great for keeping up with the laundry. The fudge and salt water taffy that was waiting for us on our arrival was a HUGE hit. Thanks! Overall, this was our 4th stay at a VRBO. The Ivey Family was very easy to work with, responded quickly, and provided all of the details needed to have a great stay. We would highly recommend this house for those looking to stay in this area.

Great Place for a Girl's Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this lovely new beach house with three girlfriends and thoroughly enjoyed it. The kitchen is fantastic with everything you need to fix your own meals. There's a huge island with seating for at least 12. The living room is well appointed, and the perfect place to relax and visit, play some of the many board games provided, or watch TV. The four bedrooms have comfortable beds and quality linens. One bedroom has bunk double beds, so combined with the sleeper sofa and sleeper love seat in the living room, you could easily sleep a big family. The two bathrooms are quite nice with good towels, and like the rest of the house, scrupulously clean. The house also has a washer and dryer which is really handy when staying at the beach. We especially loved the deck and the great chairs. So relaxing to just sit outside and watch the sun set over the water while sipping drinks and enjoying catching up. Downstairs is a bar and outside shower, too. If you're going to Crystal Beach this is a great place to stay!

Great for a family or friends getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Spent several days in this great home! Very clean and well decorated. The kitchen was obviously stocked by a true cook! Almost every gadget, pot or pan you need is there. Gathering around the large kitchen island to eat and play games was ideal. Bedrooms are spacious. The beach is a short walk away (and can be seen from the deck and living room). Quiet area-great for watching sunrises, sunsets and walks on the beach.The Ivey family is very receptive to suggestions and prompt to answer any questions. Will absolutely be back and would recommend to others.

The Big Store

All the historic buildings and museums of Galveston are a ferry ride away. Plan a day trip to Galveston for the history, but stay on Bolivar to avoid the crowds!
