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 also a 2 person ocean Kayak and a canoe both are quality inflatable sports gear, they are not toys for children to use. Use at your own risk, there are also 4 life jackets make sure you use them if you use the Kayak or Canoe, also please put them back as you found them, and please store all equipment and toys neatly back in the garage after use. The cleaning crew does not clean up the garage area after you leave so please put things back in their place before you leave. Do not count on any equipment being there for your use since things do get lost, broken and such, but do feel free to use whatever is in the Garage while you are at our home, it is all included in your rental. There are also beach toys for the kids to use, it changes all the time again since things get broken, damaged and lost, but if it is in there it is there for your enjoyment.

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.

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.

Best weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful, and our family had a great time! I did have trouble putting the key in the lock box leaving, and I called the owner and he picked up right away and answered all questions and told me he would adress the problem. Thank you so much for sharing your home.

Very nice home, close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was very nice. Location, home, and everyone around. Only steps from the beach and we loved how it was never crowded. There was a gate at the top of the stairs that was great for the little ones.

Cozy and great location!

  • 4 of 5

The house was great. Right by the beach. The family had a great time. We were close to stores if we needed anything. The only complaint (maybe not even a complaint, but more a criticism) is that there was no wifi. With kids and tablets, phones, laptops, etc. and no connectivity was a real bummer. If it weren't for that I would want to stay there every time.
