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.

A smart home with many cool features. Quick access to the water front. There is no beach sand and the beach is just okay. Could be a lot cleaner. The property is fantastic with amazing views of the gulf and the sunrise view was stunning. Very clean,Well stocked with linen and other essentials. Perfect for a weekend getaway. The owner (Dan) is super responsive and does a very good job in addressing your needs
Thanks for the great review Pavan - We're glad you enjoyed the house and how clean we try to keep it. We're sorry the timing was off on the condition of the beach. The beach in front of the house is usually great. Sometimes it can be absolutely stunning. Unfortunately during your stay there was "a gyre spinning up in the Gulf of Mexico" during your stay. I think this might have been a contributor to the high tides. We hope you'll give us another chance! Thanks again, Dan and Teresa.
Great location, great communication with owners, very nice property, would definitely go again
Excellent experience. Definitely a keeper for future visits!
The house was amazingly beautiful great view of the beach
Our family really enjoyed our stay. The house was beautiful and so close to the beach. The property is equipped with anything you could possibly need. We hope to stay here again next time we are down to see family.
Beautiful, technologically advanced beach house
If you are like me and enjoy the beach, but also love the convenience of home automation, this is the beach house for you. It's 1 lot from the sand and the view from the master balcony was breathtaking. The owner is a great guy. I was able to reach him for questions and accommodations by text, email, phone call, and VRBO messages. He was very reachable and very accommodating. I will be back.
Thanks for the great review Mr Kirby. We're glad you enjoyed your experience at The Lone Palm Resort. We hope to continue to improve as we move forward and look forward to having you back. Your hosts, Dan and Teresa
Good time at the beach!
Great home and terrific location. What a beautiful place to stay!
Thanks for the great review, Keno. We certainly enjoyed having you as a guest and hope you come back soon! Dan and Teresa, Owners.
