Why Jean Phillips chose Texas

My mother owned a home on this lot that was destroyed by hurricane IKE. She decided not to rebuild. She allowed me to take possesion of this property and build a home that we could all enjoy again. I am happy to share it with others so they can make great memories like my family has.

What makes this cabin unique

Beach front home that provides a beautiful view of the beach from almost any angle.

Beautiful and VERY relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at The Hideout! This was the closest we've stayed to the beach - it was so beautiful opening the windows and seeing nothing but waves. VERY relaxing and the house was nice and very comfortable for everyone! I would recommend this for any family or group of friends, who just want to get away from everyday life and stay somewhere "dreamy-beachy". :) Thanks to Jean also - she was so easy to communicate with, and returned the deposit very promptly. It was PERFECT in every way!

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay so much. The cabin was wonderful with its open concept . It had lots of room for my little girl and her puppy to run around and play. The beach was also perfect for this. Very private. We could set back, relax and enjoy our vacation. I would definitely recommend the Hideaway for any type of vacation and our family will definitely be back.

Relaxing and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

Our family stay in the "HIDEOUT" was very relaxing, quiet and quite enjoyable. We had a great time walking the beach, beach combing for shark teeth (1) & sea glass, watching the grand kids (9 & 6) build sand castles, sitting on the deck watching and listening to the waves roll in & out, looking at the moon and stars every night, (just beautiful), & relaxing in the hammock. Shrimp season opened while we were there and we had front row seats to watching them go up and down, back and forth shrimping really close to the shore. It made for some beautiful pictures. The weather was hot & sunny, and windy all week, which made it bearable for a Texas summer in July at the beach. During the heat of the day we either played board games in the cool or relaxed on the deck in the hammock or loungers enjoying the breezes. We cooked on the BBQ pit downstairs most nights, and one night went to an old favorite - Stingaree - great food and friendly service as always. The kids and grand kids went to the new Putt-Putt Golf in Crystal Beach, though hot they enjoyed it and had a fun time. This is our 2nd time to stay in the "HIDEOUT" and have it on our Favorites list for a beach vacation home on the Peninsula. Jean the owner is the best! She is very prompt with responses of any kind. We highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a quiet and relaxing beachfront home. Also doesn't hurt that it is really close - approximately a mile - from ROLLOVER, for all you fishermen/ladies out there. We give Jean and the "HIDEOUT" 5 stars!!!

Thank you for everything Jean,

The Falk Family - July 12-17, 2016
