About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath, large deck to enjoy the smell and sound of the ocean

Only 70 feet from the Beach with excellent ocean views from both sides of the deck. Since we built the home there has been a home constructed in front of ours, so the view has been partially blocked to the front, but there are still excellent views to both sides of the ocean. Our Dog Friendly home features 3 Bedrooms; one with a king bed and master bath, another with a queen bed, and the third bedroom with 4 bunk beds. Sleeps 8 in beds. Large living areas all with excellent views of the water. Large kitchen with granite countertops and stainless appliances. Did I mention the extra large deck where you can watch the kids playing in the surf? Enjoy your view and see if you can catch a glimpse of the dolphin just outside your front door!

There is a charcoal grill mounted under the home for you to enjoy outdoor cooking along with a built in picnic table for 8 under the home.

About Pete and Betsy Grosso

Hi, thanks for visiting our home. Pete and Betsy Grosso, the owners, welcome you. We lost our original home to Hurricane Ike a few years ago, and have just now completed construction of our new home which we offer for you to enjoy. We decided to name the home Do-Over Dunes, since we did have to do it over, this time just better and larger. We reside in Waxahachie, Texas, a small town just south of Dallas. We offer you our Texas hospitality and welcome you to home on the beach.

Pete and Betsy Grosso purchased this house in 2013

Why Pete and Betsy Grosso chose Gulf Coast

On our first trip to the Boliver Peninsula we fell in love with the beach and decided to invest our retirement money in what we like to call paradise. We would like nothing more than to share it with you.

What makes this house unique

The deck is fantastic, it is half covered and half open so there is a spot for everyone. Shade or sun, it's up to you. The home is brand new with all the creature comforts of home. All leather living furnuiture and even a recliner to take a nap in while watching and listening to the surf, just a gew feet from the home. Every room has a view with large oversized windows, so no matter where you are in the home you can see and hear the surf. Central airconditioning keeps you cool when indoors. You just have to visit to appreciate this home. We built the home higher than most which provides excellent views up and down the beach.

Perfect little beach house to get away for a weekend. the home was clean and organized. we were so close to the beach it made for an amazing time. Very dog friendly and off the main road do the dog could run around the yard with no worries. You can see the ocean from most of the windows!

My family came down from the Dallas- Ft Worth area for a family reunion on Boliver Penisula. We enjoyed the property and can't wait to book it again next Spring.

Wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

This was a weeklong getaway for a group of really old friends. This is a great, well kept home away from home, yet right by a beach. The weather was amazing. The water was swimming-pool-warm. The beach never had a lot of people, it felt almost private. Even on the weekend. The Grosso's were very nice and incredibly accommodating. Everything you could want for a longer stay was nearby yet you still get that "remote" feel. I will definitely have to plan something next year here with my kids. They will go nuts for it.
