Overview

Bolivar Peninsula House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath, large deck to enjoy the smell and sound of the ocean

Only 70 feet from the Beach with excellent ocean views from both sides of the deck. Since we built the home there has been a home constructed in front of ours, so the view has been partially blocked to the front, but there are still excellent views to both sides of the ocean. Our Dog Friendly home features 3 Bedrooms; one with a king bed and master bath, another with a queen bed, and the third bedroom with 4 bunk beds. Sleeps 8 in beds. Large living areas all with excellent views of the water. Large kitchen with granite countertops and stainless appliances. Did I mention the extra large deck where you can watch the kids playing in the surf? Enjoy your view and see if you can catch a glimpse of the dolphin just outside your front door!

There is a charcoal grill mounted under the home for you to enjoy outdoor cooking along with a built in picnic table for 8 under the home.

About Pete and Betsy Grosso

Hi, thanks for visiting our home. Pete and Betsy Grosso, the owners, welcome you. We lost our original home to Hurricane Ike a few years ago, and have just now completed construction of our new home which we offer for you to enjoy. We decided to name the home Do-Over Dunes, since we did have to do it over, this time just better and larger. We reside in Waxahachie, Texas, a small town just south of Dallas. We offer you our Texas hospitality and welcome you to home on the beach.

Pete and Betsy Grosso purchased this house in 2013

Why Pete and Betsy Grosso chose Texas

On our first trip to the Boliver Peninsula we fell in love with the beach and decided to invest our retirement money in what we like to call paradise. We would like nothing more than to share it with you.

What makes this house unique

The deck is fantastic, it is half covered and half open so there is a spot for everyone. Shade or sun, it's up to you. The home is brand new with all the creature comforts of home. All leather living furnuiture and even a recliner to take a nap in while watching and listening to the surf, just a gew feet from the home. Every room has a view with large oversized windows, so no matter where you are in the home you can see and hear the surf. Central airconditioning keeps you cool when indoors. You just have to visit to appreciate this home. We built the home higher than most which provides excellent views up and down the beach.

Perfect for families with dogs

  • 5 of 5

Pet friendly and just steps from a quiet beach. What more can you ask for? Getting to enjoy the beach with our whole family, including our dogs was such a treat. The kids hot to swim to their heart's content, while we grown ups got to enjoy long walks on the beach, bbq, fish , take afternoon naps and tan or star gaze on the deck. The house had everything we needed, was clean well supplied and set up. Pete and Betty were easy to reach for questions. No Internet, but good cell coverage. Recommend taking the back way to the peninsula. It's faster -- unless you have kids who insist on that incredibly cool ferry ride. Hope to be back next year.

This was an awesome house super close to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at the beach house. The house is nice and roomy and the beach is just a short walk away. The owner was just an email away when I had a question. They were prompt and and always helpful. We will definitely stay here again.

Great place, close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Love DO-Over DUNES. Very nice house, close to the beach which was a must for us retirees. The grandchildren had a blast. The house was cool and comfortable. Nice kitchen for cooking meals and making snacks. Nice large deck which we used a lot. I loved that we had a washer/dryer available to keep towels and dirty clothes from piling up. There's a large picnic table downstairs and a downstairs shower that we used a lot, too. We wouldn't have been able to enjoy this great place if not for the owner's foresight to let folks bring their 4-legged friends. Very enjoyable.
