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 Gulf Coast

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

What makes this cottage unique

Crystal Beach at the Bolivar Peninsula offers a unique location away from the crowded vacation resorts so you and your family can enjoy a peaceful vacation. At night, enjoy star gazing and/or making smores by the beach.

Great Cabin with a Great View.

  • 5 of 5

Ocean Blue is an awesome little cabin with a great view of the beach. We spent a lot of time at the outside table on the deck watching the pelicans fly by. Lots of memories made here. Perfect for a couple or a small family.
