About Dan and Teresa Jacobs, Owners
Teresa and myself have been providing our homes on Bolivar Peninsula to beach lovers for almost 20 years. When Hurricane Ike hit, all four of our incredible homes were completely destroyed. It has taken a long time to get restarted, but we now have a beautiful home that we're proud to make available to you and your family.
Dan and Teresa Jacobs, Owners purchased this House in 2014
Why Dan and Teresa Jacobs, Owners chose Crystal Beach
I grew up in southeast Texas and spent many of my summers as a kid in my cousin's beach house 100 yards from Rollover Pass. Then I spent my high school summers in 'The Zoo' in tents that sometimes got swamped by high tides. As times got better we purchased our first home in the 90s (literally next door to The Lone Palm Resort) and then added additional homes to provide to beach lovers that came from around the US and Canada. Our last home was Caplen Shores. Texas' finest beachfront rental, which slept 32 guests and we truly miss it as do many of our annual guests. Unfortunately, the subdivision was completely destroyed, and will probably never be rebuilt. Teresa and I built The Lone Palm Resort believing we would be able to spend more time there than we do. We try to create an experience for our guests that we would want (as the guest) staying in our home. We know how valuable time is and want our guests to be able to relax and fully enjoy our beach home. Teresa designed the original interior knowing what we wanted when we stayed at the beach and is constantly adding to and improving what we offer to adapt to the changing needs of our guests and keep our home up-to-date and our amenities modern and more than expected. Dan designed the exterior and A/V system and continually works to keep it modern and an unexpected luxury. I would wager there is no finer A/V system on the Bolivar Peninsula. Bring your BD disk (if you know what they are) and you'll be blown away by the audio system in this home. You just can't enjoy this volume of music without bothering your neighbors at your home. Some ask why 'The Lone Palm Resort'. The lone palm that stands in front of our home was virtually the only thing that withstood the ravages of Hurricane Ike in the area where our home is now.
What makes this House unique
As an owner that doesn't utilize a management company or real estate broker, we can do things the others can't such as allowing early check ins, late check outs, etc., as long as we're aware of it. We are also able to respond quickly and make decisions about problems that may occur during your stay. Renting from a management company requires contacting that company and hopefully they can reach the owner. Then they'll have to get authorization from the owner and hopefully find someone to respond to the problem. I'm the owner. I answer the phone. I will get your calls. I know who to call. I'll get the problem resolved. We do not charge a deposit for regular rentals. Your rental agreement provides for a resolution to intentional damage by guests. Many people do purchase the damage insurance as well as trip interruption insurance due to covered family matters. We have seen both of these help our guests when they needed it. We do not endorse or receive any compensation from any insurance purchase, however I always purchase both products when I rent a home for my own account.

Perfect weekend getaway
Property was spotless upon arrival. Lots of open space for hanging out with friends or family. Location is perfect as the beach isn't super packed, and it's within walking distance from the house. Plan to be back next year.
Perfect Beach Retreat
Lone Palm Resort is fantastic. The property is very well maintained. It is immaculate. The details really enhance your beach vacation experience. The house is just steps from the beach but you can relax on the wraparound deck, watching the waves, while listening to your favorite music on the inside/outside sound system. The deck chairs are the perfect height to see the beach. Spacious covered parking. Satellite tv, gaming system for the kids, incredible master bedroom and bathroom. King sized bed in guest bedroom, two queen size beds in the other guest room. The owner definitely wants to make sure your stay is enjoyable. I highly recommend this property.
Thank you Lisa for your great review. We are very appreciative of the time you took to write and post this. As a one home owner these days, (we owned 4 pre-Ike) we live and die by our reviews. That simply means that for 20 years, we have specially prepared our home for special guests. The Lone Palm Resort is not a party house and we assume that's what makes it even more popular. We own up to our shortcomings and hopefully can always correct any failures. We pay a lot of money to give special attention to the details. We are very happy to share it with special guests like you. You treated the house with care and you and your guests are welcome at The Lone Palm Resort anytime. Dan and Teresa. Owners

The experience was great. The property is very nice. Clean and in a excellent location. Easy excess on and off the beach.
