About Steve or Annie Smith

Long term gulf coast residents who have put down deep roots on Bolivar Peninsula. As frequent travelers to locations all over the US, Europe and the Far-Middle East, we understand what everyone is looking for when they are on vacation and that is a good time. You will never find a more customer service oriented couple. Our goal when building The Reserve on Bolivar Beach was to develop a property that would provide an unparalleled beach experience. While The Reserve is offered for rental, it also serves as our home during part of the year. As Owner-Managers, no expense was spared when this home was built. We think once you visit, you'll agree.

Steve or Annie Smith purchased this house in 2014

Why Steve or Annie Smith chose Texas Gulf Coast

Simply the best beach front rental home the Bolivar Peninsula has to offer. If you are looking for a high end, beach front rental, this is the place for you and your family or friends to stay.

The home has two outside showers, a total of five (5) decks and every amenity you would expect from any five star property.

What makes this house unique

Everything is included in the rental. No hidden fees. All linens, towels and trash service are included. Also included in every rental is a gas powered golf cart which can accommodate four adults. Additional golf carts are available for rent if needed.

Awesome Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Our family of eight stayed at The Reserve last weekend and we were not disappointed. The house was a perfect fit for our group. The house was filled with beautiful furniture and decor and every amenity we could possibly need. Use of the golf cart made it fun to ride down the beach. The many decks are completed with remarkable outdoor furniture. The beach is very close and almost private at this area. Tiffany did a wonderful job checking us in and the maintenance man came by to see if we needed anything. I would definitely recommend this house!!

Beach House was wonderful

  • 5 of 5

The property is exactly as Steve and Annie describe it on the Vacation Rental website. The house is beautiful and is located on the beach. I loved the property and I would stay there again. I dealt with Steve through emails and he was great to work with. Once we arrived I dealt with Annie and she was very nice and thorough in her overview of what was expected out of renters.

We had our church staff retreat at Steve and Annie's Beachfront Home and it was a wonderful place for us to rest, play and plan.

The Reserve

  • 5 of 5

Awesome beach house! Every comfort we wanted; everything provided. Mosquitos on the Bolivar unavoidable but owner had someone spray for them. Many amenities for young families, and use of golf cart made getting up and down from the beach easy. Thanks, too, to Tiff for checking us in and out easily. Highly recommend.

The home is new, beautiful and makes you feel right at home.

The deck space is fantastic and the beach is right there for you to enjoy.

Much appreciation goes to Steve and Annie for the detailed instruction regarding the home.
