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.

Quiet and clean

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay for our anniversary. The house was on a quiet part of the beach and we very much enjoyed our stay! We'll be back for a weekend getaway just us 2 and also back with our little boys.

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

Beautiful and out of the way of others. Hideout is the perfect name for this house.

  • 5 of 5

The Hideout is a great place to stay. Love the open floor plan, it helped keep the family all together. The veiw from the deck is gorgeous. Love the property and would definitely stay there again.

The beach house was beautiful.

  • 1 of 5

I hadn't had a vacation in 13 years. Much to my disappointment she didn't tell me there would be a beach house be constructed 3 feet away from the deck that I so wanted to enjoy the sounds of the ocean and a relaxing time, so with the hammering, nail guns, electric saws and the throwing around of wood boards it was not an enjoyable time. And then the electric men setting a pole...sanitation people emptying the Porta potty which was a great smell while having my morning coffee on the patio. I had saved up for this trip and it was completely ruined. :(

Owner's Response: I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay at my property. The family that checked out the day before you emailed me and stated "Thank you for our stay it was just the right amount of quiet for our family and nice". I did offer you the option to check out early with a refund but you declined and wanted to stay. I felt like we discussed your concerns on multiple occasions and you were comfortable with the outcome. Again, I do apologize.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at The Hideaway! Jean was super helpful before, during, and after our stay. The house itself is perfect and the location is nice because you're away from all the hustle and bustle, but still close enough to stores, etc... if you need anything. I have already recommended this property to friends and we will definitely be back!!
