About Francisco and Elva Gonzalez

We purchased this home 3 weeks before hurricane Ike, We rebuild this cottage after the hurricane, and used it for several years. At this time, we have decided to share the cottage with families who are looking for a quiet beach get-away.

Francisco and Elva Gonzalez purchased this Cottage in 2008

Why Francisco and Elva Gonzalez chose Port Bolivar

A peaceful vacation cottage for a single family who enjoys the different beach activities.

What makes this Cottage unique
