About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps Max 15)

Shalom 5 new construction completed 2007. Home address is 151 Ocean Shore, Bolivar Peninsula, Texas 77650. Here's a video of the property:

You will love it! My family and friends who have stayed here tell me the beach home is filled with peace. That is understandable since 'shalom' means peace! This is the perfect place for a getaway, vacation, honeymoon, family reunion or church retreat. The house is so cozy.

The beach is a short 5 minute walk. There is also access for vehicles at the end of our street. The sand sparkling in the sunlight is why this place is called 'Crystal Beach'.

When you walk up the stairs the first thing you will see is the spacious deck. There is plenty of furniture for your vacation pleasure. Some folks have used up their entire time enjoying the beach from the deck!! Part of the deck is covered. The afternoons on the deck are shaded. This part of the home that faces the beach is windows and glass doors galore. Whether in or out, the ocean view is breathtaking.

Once you enter, you will see the open concept living, dining and kitchen. We have a sectional in the living room in addition to a seating/sleeping bench underneath the windows.

This level also has a full size washer and dryer tucked underneath the stairs, a full bathroom and a kid friendly bedroom with two sets of bunk beds. One bunk is doubles the other is twins. So on this level you can sleep up to six in the bedroom and one in the living room.

Upstairs you will find 3 more bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The Master suite has a King size bed and a full size futon for your sitting pleasure OR extra sleeping for up to four in this room. Those traveling with a wee one will find a pack and play in the walk in closet. There is a garden tub and double sinks in the master.

There is another full size bathroom near the other two bedrooms. Each have a queen bed and a custom sleeping/sitting bench with a maximum sleeping capacity of three for each of those bedrooms. All three bedrooms have a private door leading to the upper deck. Here you will find gorgeous views and more furniture.

So you are looking at a MAXIMUM sleeping capacity of 10 upstairs and 7 down.

Keywords: A few steps from the house to the sand. Incredible beach views!~

Girls Beach Weekend (June 2017)

  • 5 of 5

Every year my mom and I rent a cabin and invite our dearest friends to come along ... all of the ladies enjoyed Shalom 5, it was a great cabin with plenty of room to sleep everyone and was just a short walk to the beach. Some of us walked the beach in the morning looking for shells and sea glass and others walked the beach in the evening and watched the sunset. The beach view was awesome on the lower and upper decks with plenty of room for us to lay out and catch some rays. It was absolutely perfect and we will definitely be back. Thank you for a fabulous weekend!

Lovely Escape!

We really enjoyed the view of the beach and the sound of the waves during our weekend escape to Shalom 5. It really did give us some peace in this hectic life. It was very comfortable and spacious and accommodated all of our needs. We shall return.

Great Time With Family

  • 5 of 5

My family and I arrived July 25, 2016. We had 14 in our group. About half adults and half children. This was our 2nd time to visit Shalom 5 as a family. I have stayed at other properties in the past and have enjoyed Shalom 5 the most. The location is great and the area is peaceful. Upon arriving both times the house was in immaculate shape. Very spacious, neat and clean. Shalom 5 was fully furnished and although 14 in our group, we had plenty of dishes, towels, etc. As seen in the pictures Shalom 5 has a great view and is very close to the beach. We are definitely looking forward to coming back again soon.

Spring Break with Friends

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Shalom 5 on the 9th of March, 2016 Spring break.

The environment was serene, quite and safe; the lawn was well manicured. As we entered the house, we noticed its spacious living room with no visible dust noted. The widows were wide and clean where you can see the rolling waves outside; the two decks (lower and upper) were enough for 15 people and safe for the kids. The house was strategically located with an ideal distance to the beach. It was immaculate. Kitchen utensils were clean and the lighting was excellent. Beds and linens were prepared as we got in. We wish we could stay there longer.

Above all, the owner/manager was so nice and kind. You can reach her anytime by phone/email. I definitely will recommend Shalom 5 to my co-workers, relatives and friends.

You may have a small campfire on the beach away from the dunes. You can drive your car or golf cart on the beach here. You may also shoot fireworks. That makes New Years Eve and the 4th of July super popular here!
