Why Carinn chose Port Bolivar

This beach house has everything! The Master suite assures a private retreat when our family plus friends and all the children and grandchildren get together. The fenced playground provides a safe place for the kids to enjoy and the lower level bar is a perfect setting to entertain in the shade after a long day of fun at the beach. The private walkover bridge to the beach front makes access fast and easy - with the sand and waves only a few feet away from "Just Breathe."

What makes this house unique

Just Breathe is the PERFECT get away. Folks of all ages will leave saying it's the best time they have ever had here with plans to revisit soon. The view and amenities, including private beach bridge, cannot be found in any other vacation rental property in Crystal Beach nor exceeded on the coast.

Amazing family beach house

  • 5 of 5

My family of eleven (including eight adults three children) just spent a fabulous week in this amazing house. Everything was perfect--even better than the pictures!

Our time was like staying in a friend's house, not like a rental at all. Throws, pillows, comfy furniture, extremely well stocked kitchen, and great beds and linens.

The beachfront location and private walkover were absolutely wonderful.

Carrin was so very helpful and made the rental process so easy. We will definitely choose thise house again. By far, the BEST beach house EVER!

Dream Home on the Beach and Perfect for Large Families

  • 5 of 5

Our second year staying at 'Just Breathe' was as fabulous as the first visit.' 'Just Breathe' is an excellent home for large families. We enjoyed all the amenities this home has to offer. The kitchen is fully stocked with all you'll need to serve up great food. Bedrooms are beautifully decorated and comfortable. The views are spectacular no matter what floor you are on. You can hang up the hammocks below the house and nap in the cool breeze'. Every morning presents a beautiful sunrise over the Gulf and the evenings are breezy and cool. My family plans to return annually. This home is worth the cost. Thanks, Carrin for everything you do to make the guest of 'Just Breathe' welcomed and appreciated.

This is the best Beach house on the Gulf coast and maybe in the USA. Our family loved it. They are already wanting to go back. Nobody wanted to leave. All of the upgrades done by the owners are fantastic -- the walkover bridge to the beach, the kitchen with all of the new utensils,etc. Additionally, the rental agent, Carinn, was so friendly, kind, and professional. She made us feel so welcomed. We are looking forward to our next stay at "Just Breathe"!
