About Hadley Montgomery

Two families (siblings and spouses) own this beauty and have truly attempted to design it to be the perfect vacation home. We hope you and your family will be able to make memories here just as we have.

Hadley Montgomery purchased this house in 2013

Why Hadley Montgomery chose Crystal Beach

The property has one of the best beach views on the street, currently from several angles. We basically have no immediate neighbors that have rebuilt their homes, offering privacy galore! The home is a short walk to the beach, on a beach access paved road. Our golf cart (available for rental) can make the short walk to the beach even shorter drive. we have a washer set for your entertainment, and plenty of outdoor room for fun and games.

What makes this house unique

The Bolivar Peninsula, particularly this area, is known for its winter bird watching- nation wide. Our property neighbors wetlands and with local area bird preserves there is much offered for the nature lover. High Island and other birding areas and events can be investigated nearby.

Love the house, not so much the owners or the "neighbors"!

  • 1 of 5

Every year we have a beach trip with family and close friends. Every year has been amazing. Until this stay at the "Birdhouse"! We stayed in this home last year with no problems at all, so we booked it again expecting nothing less. This year we arrived on a friday afternoon and noticed that the RV parked only about 30 or 40 feet to the left of the house had visitors staying there. Never did we think that this would later be an issue! The first night we went to the beach to search for crabs in the golf cart and enjoyed ourselves. The second evening however, we were outside cooking, playing volleyball and had music playing on the stereo system outside when the "neighbors" came over around 8:30 to tell us to turn the music down because they were going to bed. We were very understanding and turned it down by more than half. Not an hour later there were sheriffs outside the house, saying there was a noise complaint. One of the officers couldnt understand the reasoning behind the complaint, as he said he couldnt even hear the words to the music at all. At this point the sun had just gone down, on a saturday night and were were forced to all be confined to the house on our vacation! A couple of hours of board games and catching up goes by, and I recieved a text from one of the owners saying their "neighbors" said there were people on the "roof" of the house. I'd like to point out that this house is basically four stories high! And it has a "birdnest" near the roof, that is accessible and there were people sitting in it talking. When I went outside to see what they could possibly be talking about, the people that were in the birdnest told me that the man in the camper had come outside and had spot lighted up into the birdnest as an attempt to get them to go inside. Im sorry, but if on our vacation we want to sit out on a porch and talk and laugh for hours we dont want someone in a camper with paper thin walls sitting not even 40 feet from the house calling the cops, spot lighting us and lying to the owners saying that there were things going on that weren't. As I text a response to the owner explaing, he was rude and basically called me a liar! It has been over two weeks since our stay and i have yet to receive the deposit back! Im sure that their excuse is due to their "trusted neighbors" accusations! I'm not even going to bother asking them after how we were treated! If you vacation quietly and sleep when the sun goes down, this is the house for you!!

Beachy Peachy

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience renting Bolivar Birdhouse for my daughter's 16th birthday! It was clean and plenty of space. Kitchen is very functional and the downstairs patio area was awesome. The view was spectacular. We took several pictures of the sunsets.

We would definitely rent this house again!

Will be back again!!!!

Stop browsing - Grab this place! A family getaway you won't forget!

  • 5 of 5

There is nothing this BEAUTIFUL home doesn't have! We visited with two daughters - 10 & 5 years old - and a family of friends with 3 kids - two teenagers & an 11 year-old. Everyone LOVED it.

The golf cart is a MUST-HAVE perk - we were so grateful for that convenience. Two dishwashers, people! And the binoculars got a lot of use from the top deck. Be SURE to get up for at least one sunrise up there! The hammock and outdoor showers are a real treat.

And the house couldn't be in a quieter spot on the peninsula. The beach was never crowded and the kids left with buckets of 1st class seashells. We won't think twice about returning - and have already decided to make this an annual trip for the family!

Thank you for opening your home to us!
