Why Jean Phillips chose Bolivar Peninsula

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 house unique

This home has a large partially covered porch so you can either lay in the sun and work on your tan or sit back in the shade and sip a glass of wine. Either way you have a beautiful view of the beach from all angles. The open concept floor plan allows you to spend your vacation enjoying your family and friends. When it is time to rest you can lay in the bed and still enjoy the beautiful ocean view. Bring your fishing poles so you can get some surf fishing in while building sand castles, flying kites and collecting sea shells. Keep an eye out for those special treasures like sand dollars, shark tooth and sea glass.

Absolutely a beautiful View and home.

  • 5 of 5

Would highly recommend this rental. Very well maintained and so comfy, you can hear the waves as you lay in the big king size bed. I only wish the weather would have been better. If you are planning a trip to the coast this is the place to stay for sure! ❤️

The beach house was an awesome place the view is incredible the access to the beach is perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Everything went smoothly as I was told. If I had anything negative to say the place could have been cleaner and a few things to be repaired. I did book at the last minute maybe they didn't have time for fine tuning. I will go back, it was very enjoyable!! I highly recommend this property for an enjoyable time on Bolivar Peninsula.

The best vacation we have ever had!

  • 5 of 5

We have been on may vacations (river, cruises, Disney etc). My kids said this was the best vacation ever. The house was wonderful and we loved the layout. The location is top notch and couldn't have been any better. You can sit on the porch and see the kids playing in the sand/ocean. During the week most of the time the only people on the beach for a mile each way. On Friday and Saturday it picked up but not at all crowed, we saw 5 other families within miles. Lots of room to between and you don't feel crowded. The beach is beautiful and sea shells and sea glass glore! The house set up was great and we LOVED the downstairs shower to rinse off after the beach. There was a lovely local Christian owned restaurant that has yummy reasonably priced foods. Also the little grocery store carries evething you need and the prices were good too.

Jean was amazing with communication and very accommodating. The power went out after a storm that effected the whole island for 7 hours and she responded with the power company contact info and was very helpful. Overall 5 star for sure! We will be returning. Thank you for sharing your beautiful house with us.
