About Miriam Gerdes
We love coming to Bolivar for the relaxation and getting away from everything. It is so peaceful to sit on our deck in a deck chair or in the hammock and watch and listen to the waves or see the sunset. We live in College Station, which is about 3 hours away and come down as much as we can.
Miriam Gerdes purchased this House in 2010
Why Miriam Gerdes chose Port Bolivar
We have loved coming to Bolivar for many years. The tranquility of the area and the friendly people had us coming back again and again. Now that I have a child, I wanted a place (not too far away) where he could learn to enjoy the beach as much as I do. We were very saddened when Hurricane Ike came and demolished the area and are excited to help in revitalizing the Bolivar Peninsula.
What makes this House unique
We enjoy the peace and quiet of Bolivar, while Galveston is just a short ferry ride away. The restaurants on Bolivar Peninsula can't be beat either! The beach is a tenth of a mile walk from our house along a paved neighborhood street. The beach is wide and quiet in 'our' area. You will find some surf fishers and families but usually no loud parties!

Nice house for a small group. Quiet neighborhood, closer to the ferry than to town but nothing is very far away. Could see the Gulf from the porch. Shrimp kisses from the Tiki and boudin balls from the Ocean Grill were really good. It was a wonderful stay at a very nice place.
I'm glad you had a good time!
We stayed for 2 days for a quick getaway. Nice low key location, house was perfect, comfortable beds, nice deck. Well stocked with utensils, condiments etc. rent a golf cart and cruise the beach-awesome.
So glad you had a good time. Come back any time!
Loved the location of the beach house to the beach. The house was a good size for my family.
Loved everything about the house except that it was not cleaned before our arrival.
I am very sorry the house was not as it should have been. I have not had this occur before, I wish you or your daughter would have let me know as soon as you got there and I would have had it taken care of for you. I greatly apologize.
We came across this house by accident and booked a spur of the moment trip. I will say that it was everything that we could have asked for and more! Very nice, clean, and well stocked! We have a small family of four and the house was extremely accommodating. I can definitely see it as a house that we would like to continue to come to each year and there is plenty of room to bring family and/or friends with us. I like it that's it's more on the Bolivar side of the peninsula, less traffic and more relaxing. Although the house is on the 3rd/4th row, the view is great from the large patio doors and windows. It was a wonderful sight in the mornings. The kids loved the bunk beds and it was nice having them just down the hall. The owners are super nice and very responsive. Great stay!! We look forward to booking again.
I am so glad you had a great time! We welcome you back anytime!
Perfect Family Weekend Getaway
This property was a great fit for our family of 10. It was spacious and just a short walk to the beach. It was clean, and well stocked. The restaurants were in close proximity and we also enjoyed being able to grill and cook breakfast for everyone during our stay. At night we enjoyed star gazing and relaxing in the hammock/patio furniture.
It was nice and quiet in the beach houses nearby as well which was nice since we did not want the crazy loud party scene. We will definitely return soon-highly recommend.
I'm glad you had a good time! Please come again!
great little place that is comfy and cozy
We went last min and stayed the weekend. great fast friendly people and responded quick. Again was a last min booking but well worth it. Everything you need pretty much there and didn't skip a beat. Had a great time with family and was a great place to visit. Will deff return soon. If you are looking for a decent priced good place to be this is it.
Our house is located just 5 miles to the Bolivar ferry which will take you to Galveston. Galveston has many restaurants, live theatre, music, antique homes to tour, Moody Gardens, Schlitterbahn water park and much, much more. Crystal Beach and the Bolivar Peninsula has a small public golf course and a small seasonal water slide that is also a hit with the children. There are also two playgrounds in the area. Birding and nature areas are close by, including an Audubon Trail. Fishing is big in this area, both by boat, in the surf and at 'Rollover Pass.' The best thing though is the BEACH, BEACH, BEACH! Fishing, Skim boarding, walking the beach, collecting shells (not exciting shells, but there are shells), chasing and/or catching crabs, flying kites and much more. There are also businesses in the area that rent jet skis (in season) as well as golf carts.
