EVENT REQUIREMENTS:

ANY EVENT SUCH AS A DAY PARTY, PROM PARTY, BIRTHDAY PARTY, WEDDING, OR REUNION THAT EXCEEDS THE MAX OCCUPANCY, REQUIRES THE RENTER TO SIGN AN EVENT AGREEMENT, SEPARATE FROM THE RENTAL AGREEMENT. THE HOUSE USES A SEPTIC SYSTEM AND HAS A MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY. IF THE MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY IS EXCEEDED, ADDITIONAL RESTROOM SERVICES MUST BE PROVIDED BY THE RENTER.

ALL events require a nonrefundable event booking fee of $600 due at the time of booking.

The maximum guests allowed for any event is 30.

For any event planned outdoors which exceeds the max occupancy, a contract for a back-up plan in case of rain (i.e. tent, restaurant reservation, etc.) is required in order to complete the booking.

Prom parties require one chaperone for every four minors. Each chaperone is required to provide a copy of their driver’s license along with a signed event agreement.

Please note that parking is limited to six vehicles, which reduces the entertainment space underneath the house. Street parking is monitored, as well as limited, so in consideration of our neighbors, we suggest buses or shuttle services from nearby towns. There are no large parking lots on the peninsula.

Please note that the home is not equipped to accommodate large parties indoors, so consider other arrangements in case of rain.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: We love the beach and have been coming here for years! We decided to build our beach home close to everything we love-fishing, paddle boarding, boating and the great outdoors. We hope that you enjoy our home away from home!

Why the Owner Chose Crystal Beach, Bolivar Peninsula, TX, USA:
Short 500ft walk to the beach-street has direct beach access by vehicle or golf cart as well! This is our home away from home, so we have paid close attention to every detail. We have lots of 'extras' to make your stay easy and carefree! We hope that you enjoy it as much as we do. We also own two other rentals at Lake Travis in Austin. Please see our stellar reviews!
