Amazing family getaway
This property is amazing! Everything was clean and ready when we arrived. Very well stocked with linens, extra pillows and kitchen supplies. Since we are on quarantine times and didnt want to go out to restaurants, having a well stocked kitchen was huge to feed our large family. Greatly appreciated. We came with a family of eight and our dogs and had a blast. The view of the beach is amazing and a very short walk to get there. Spending an early morning breakfast and coffee on the porch is the perfect way to wake up. Sad to leave but will definately be coming back.
Thanks for the great review Karen - We're glad you found everything to your liking. We've worked for 20 years while never using an agency to provide a great rental experience to our guests. We are seriously spending more than $300.00 per stay while keeping our initial supplies and cleaning charge at $150.00 to go far beyond the normal cleaning process and to exceed CDC guidelines. I have been personally trained extensively in accomplishing these CDC guidelines and work closely with our house manager to maintain them. I have personally spent many nights in upscale hotels that I won't name since this started. I can state factually that I would rather stay in The Lone Palm Resort than any of the hotels I've stayed in since March 1, 2020. Come back soon and stay longer next time! Your hosts and owners, Dan and Teresa.
Beautiful setting but...
The view of the beach was beautiful but the technology took awhile to figure out. Even with the instructions it took hours to figure it out (and we never did figure it out). The stairs are weird - hurt my ankle and knee. Please do not misunderstand we loved the stay but there were issues
Thank you for your review Kimber. Our apologies for your dissatisfaction with certain aspects of our home. I wasn't made aware that you were having issues or we would have worked with you to make things right. It's a fine line between having everything that everyone one wants and doesn't want. I'm not sure what's wrong with the stairs. That is the first complaint we've ever had regarding them, but I'd be more than happy to listen to suggestions. I'm not sure whether you're referring to the interior stairs or the exterior stairs. Please note that we are constantly working to upgrade all of our homes features and make them more user friendly. We look forward to having you back and will do everything we can to make your experience better.
Eight family member stay at this beautiful place. It’s a 5 star ⭐️ can’t wait to return. Thank you for such a nice stay.
Our 2010 family week at Lone Palm
The location of the property is perfect, beautiful view and very short walk to the beach. The house is very well equipped, pots, pans, blenders, cooking utensils, nice grill and even food storage containers...we used them all, a lot of cooking indoors that week. I would highly recommend this property & would return again myself some time if we needed a place at Crystal Beach. A big plus for me was the management of our arrival, check-in and communication throughout the stay as needed with Dan & Teresa, very professional and helpful. Thanks for the great memories...we hope you have a great summer season! J & H
Great house for a family vacation. I would stay here again.
Great house and a great location. Beaches here are a lot less crowded than galveston.

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.
