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 so that beach goers can have a great spot to enjoy our wonderful Bolivar Peninsula without having to spend their time in a tent on the beach like I did growing up. Teresa designed the interior knowing what our guests want. Dan designed the exterior and A/V system. 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.
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.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Great property! Perfect for our two little ones. Wish we could have stayed longer and can’t wait to get back.
Dan and Teresa have an amazing home! It’s so close to the beach! Had everything we needed to enjoy a family vacation.
Spontaneous Family Vacation
This place was amazing. The view, the house, its accommodations and the communication with its owners was great. The property literally had everything needed for our 4 night stay. Everything from pots, pans, silverware cups, blenders Tupperware etc. The owners really put a lot of thought into ensuring everyone who stays there has a great time! Nicely decorated, the ladies took some ideas for themselves. The kids loved the very brief walk to the beach and the adults loved having the foot washers at the bottom of the steps and outdoor shower for rinsing off. They even had some beach toys and inflatables for the kids!
Ironically, the entire island was out of power from a recent storm except for us. We had a generator which ran the entire house including both A/C units keeping us cool for the duration of the outage. Thank you Dan!
Our family can not wait to book the property again for our next vacation!
Immaculate and amazing!
This property is simply amazing!
All the switches are labeled throughout the house, which makes everything so much easier to navigate. The kitchen is well stocked and huge. The master bedroom and bathroom are luxurious. The guest bedrooms are also amazing.
We lost power numerous times throughout our short stay and the generator worked like a dream. I almost felt guilty having AC, fridge, washer/dryer and lights while everyone around us was without power.
We sat on the massive deck every night, listening to the surround sound speaker system and watching the world go by. Beach access is right in front of the house.
I have rented numerous houses on the Peninsula. This is, by far, the nicest, most well-appointed house I've ever stayed in.
Go ahead and book it! You will not be disappointed. The owner responds to calls and texts immediately, answering any and all questions. Reserve now!
Perfect Beach getaway!
Our family had a great time! The house is beautiful and so close to the beach. Amazing views. We’ll be back next year!
Our family really enjoyed our stay. The location and house was perfect. Dan was nice and helpful! The house had everything you needed to have a comfortable stay. We would definitely stay there again!
Thanks for the great review. We definitely want to continue to improve our home and add more amenities. Please come back soon. Dan and Teresa, Owners.
