The house was built in 2008 and finished a couple of months before Hurricane Ike hit the coast September 13, 2008. The house had minimal damage because of the stricter building codes. Our son came and got to view the house 4 days after Ike to see that it was still standing. All the keys to house were washed away in the storm, so he was unable to view the inside. When they finally let us return to our amazement the inside of the house was all intact. We had boarded up the windows with about 4 extra inches on each side and the sand made it way through some at the bottom on the window base boards. The sand blew in the bottom of the boarded up door making a left sweeping pattern from the front door to the back bedroom door. In the field across from us and to the left you could find a lot of the stuff that came off the house. I found a light fixture that had blown off and the walls to the garage. In all we felt very fortunate to have a house still standing. It took months to get electricity, water and sewer. So since the market for selling a house did not look promising we decide to rent it out. I hope that you find it supplied with what you need. I have made an “Oh No I Forgot Box”, if you find that you have forgotten something and it is in the box please feel free to take and use it. And if you have extras of something that people forget please feel free to share it. In the pantry is non perishable that you are welcome to and if you would like to leave non open items,please do so.
It is like having a private beach. Not a lot of people are in this area.
We put in the master bedroom a great Massage Chair. Sit back, relax and enjoy your stay at D Beach House
Port Bolivar Lighthouse
The Port Bolivar lighthouse (also called Bolivar Point Lighthouse) can be reached by taking the ferry from Galveston across the mouth of Galveston Bay or by taking Highway 87 from Port Arthur to Port Bolivar. The lighthouse is on the northern side of Highway 87 a mile or so from the ferry landing.
Bolivar Point Lighthouse and the adjacent residences are privately owned and not open to the public. Good views can be had from Highway 87.
You'll have fun on Bolivar's beaches, all 30 miles, with different areas catering to different age groups and lifestyles. The most well known area is called Crystal Beach and is named after its crystal-like sand. Crystal Beach is the busiest and most appealing to the more youthful at heart. You can join in the Crystal Beach party on the sand or watch it all happen from the view of an overlooking beach home.
Rollover Pass, which divides Bolivar Peninsula as well as Gilchrist and carries water between East Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. It is regarded among sportsmen as a very popular fishing location in Texas with some the largest fish in the state.
Rollover Pass was a natural pass that had been closed until 1955, when it was opened by the Texas Game and Fish Commission as part of its efforts to preserve and improve fish and wildlife resources. Several businesses in the community operate to furnish necessities for permanent residents as well as tourists.
The Bolivar Peninsula is part of the Bolivar Loop Birding Trail. Here, on the Gulf, with resounding waves breaking against the shore, an array of shorebirds may be observed and identified.
Birding is probably one of the most cosmopolitan outdoor activities in existence. By all accounts, the ranks of birders are growing. Formerly called “birdwatchers,” birders come from all walks of life, from doctors to lawyers, teachers, policemen, corporate executives, truck drivers, merchants, young children, young marrieds and senior citizens. There are as many varieties of birders as there are birds. They range from intense perfectionists who travel the globe at the drop of a hat to see a species never seen, to the casual weekend hobbyist who enjoys watching the neighborhood birds at a backyard feeder or nearby greenbelt.
The North Jetty, at the southwestern end of the peninsula, is one of twin restraining walls built into the Gulf of Mexico to provide a deep water channel to Galveston. The South Jetty extends into the Gulf from Galveston Island. Work on the jetties began as a construction experiment in 1874, and the major portion was completed only after Congress appropriated funds for the work in 1890. Completion of the system in 1898 made Galveston a deep-sea port for world commerce. The jetties now protect shipping to various cities along the Houston Ship Channel, and are used as fishing spots by many sportsmen.
The jetty protects the entrance to the Galveston/Houston Ship Channel. The North Jetty Road, 1.7 miles from the Ferry Landing, is unmarked except for a large sign on the inland side of the highway. The road dead-ends into the North Jetty. The jetty was built of huge granite blocks in the 1890's by the Army Corp of Engineers. Without the jetties, large ships would not be able to travel the channel as the channel would silt over and boats with more than a 12 foot draft would be unable to navigate through the area.
Fort Travis is on the western end of Bolivar Peninsula close to the ferry landing and includes the seawall, broad grassy areas, oleanders, winding roads, well equipped play grounds, picnic tables and bbq grills. The 60-acre park still has battery sites. It also has picnic areas and cabanas rentals. It's part of the Galveston County Beach Park Board.
Galveston Bolivar Ferry
Many people say that the best things in life can be had for free, and this is definitely true most of the time. At least, one of the best things that you can do when visiting the Bolivar Peninsula is to take a ride on the Galveston Bolivar Ferry. It is a joy and a pleasure that can be had absolutely for free.
The Galveston Bolivar Ferry is a 24-hour marine transportation system operated by the Texas Department of Transportation. Both Vehicles and Walk-on passengers are welcome. The ride is 2.7 miles and takes 15-20 minutes to cross over Bolivar Roads at about 12 knots.
9 Hole Regulation Golf Course
Settled on a peninsula jutting into the Gulf of Mexico, the Rancho Carribe Golf Course is one of Texas’ best-kept secrets. About an hour southeast of Houston, this nine-hole facility features a renovated barn for a one-of-a-kind pro shop and holes with spectacular gulf views. Wallis Smith, who owns the course with his wife Julia, literally designed and built the course with P.G.A. Pro Robby Sharpless.
