Beautiful house and awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely beautiful with plenty of room for our 5 adults and 5 kids. The downstairs has a nice outdoor shower and large charcoal grill. The appliances are all top notch. The beach is an easy walk!

Beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of room for the whole family! Great beach access and view. If you have a large family, plan on bringing additional paper products, otherwise there was everything needed for a great trip!

One of our best Bolivar stays!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented numerous houses in Bolivar over the last 10 years and this is one of our top 3! It really had it all ... great physical layout (2nd story master en suite was perfect for 2nd family), well stocked in kitchen, location for beach access, Stingaree’s & Big Store was a plus and beach view was spectacular! Because we were there to celebrate joint 60th birthdays with a party, the area under house was an excellent site with adequate parking.

Carinn was great, too, even contacting me when my daughter’s Apple Watch was found under bed while cleaning. She quickly mailed it to me. Additionally, I appreciated the expeditious return of the security deposit!

The only negative was not being able to use the lift ... if only to help get things up/down stairs.

All in all, would definitely rent again!

Wonderful house, wonderful location, great value for the price.

  • 5 of 5

The house was ready when promised and was in excellent condition. Proximity to the beach allowed us easy access and a quick exit after a hard day of "beaching." Ms. Baker was prompt in answering any questions we had prior to our arrival and her recommendation of Texas Custom Carts was spot on. The house had all the extras that made our stay more enjoyable. Also, my deposit was credited almost immediately upon our checkout. We will definitely rent again!

Favorite Beach House Yet!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this beach house. It was a perfect location to the beach. The rooms were perfect for our mix of family and friends. The master suites are very impressive. It has a big front deck to sit and look out at the coast line. The 3 full bathrooms was a life saver!!! I could not say enough good things about this house! We have rented at least 10 times through VRBO and this was our favorite house!

When you stay at Down By The Sea, you are just steps away from the glistening sand and the cool breeze of the Gulf of Mexico. You can drive on the beach and enjoy the fascinating seagulls or jump in your golf cart to catch a beautiful sunset.
