We respond quickly to all questions and online booking requests. Please be sure to see our aerial and interior video. It is not your run of the mill video with picture after picture of the same photos you'll see on other homes on the site. It will give you a great perspective of our location in relation to the beach.

The Lone Palm Resort is a new, ultra luxury, super high tech custom beach home. Be one of the first to experience this extraordinary vacation rental. The address is 1146 Gulfview, in the Bluewater Subdivision. This is definitely the most technologically modern home on the Bolivar Peninsula. With LED televisions throughout, you won't miss any of your favorite shows or sporting events while you're at the beach, and you can watch them on our Ultra High Definition 4K 65" television in the living room. We have the top of the line DirecTV Premier Package which includes all premium movie channels such as HBO, Starzz, Cinemax, Showtime, etc.. With advance arrangements, we can even place televisions outside on the front or back decks or even on the downstairs slab if you're having large gatherings there.

Close to everything, yet far from everything. This isn't Ambergris Caye, then of course it doesn't cost as much. Just use your imagination to make the water blue, but of course it's sandy.

When it comes to property rentals, we have more than 15 years experience and know how to make your vacation rental a positive time for all. We are 'over the top' when it comes to cleanliness. As the owner and manager, we will be getting the phone calls if it isn't right, so we have the home fully professionally cleaned and sanitized before each guest arrives. It isn't the Waldorf=Astoria, so we don't have all the cute little soaps and shampoos, but we have convenience and solitude. Crystal Beach has a very laid back atmosphere, which is probably what you're looking for when you get away from the city. Included in the home is a Luxurious California King bed and mattress in the master bedroom, a standard king bed in the front bedroom and two queen beds in the 2nd guest bedroom. There is a queen size sleeper sofa with a comfortable mattress in the living room. Bring sleeping bags or air mattresses for the kids. We have two Queen Size E-Z Beds if you need them. If you try it once, you will be back!

To give an even better idea of the exclusivity of our home, there are only two homes on the Bolivar Peninsula that have 1000 gallon underground propane tanks. Natural gas is not available on the peninsula. This gives our home the capability for running 100% off the grid for almost 30 days in the summer time with both air conditioners running, and close to 45 days in the winter when the heat is running. Also, most people prefer cooking with gas and that’s what you’ll be doing at The Lone Palm Resort. There are very few homes on Bolivar Peninsula that have that feature. The are only two homes on the Bolivar Peninsula with this capability, and the other house on Atkinson St is valued at more than $3,000.000.00.

This is a great venue for weddings, family gatherings, anniversaries and many other special events. Just let us know! We allow up to 25 attendees for an additional fee of $500.00 which covers the additional cleaning required in a larger group. Due to strict septic system limitations, there is an additional $1,500.00 charge for events with more than 25 attendees. This charge covers an upscale VIP trailer mounted portable restroom (not a port a potty).

Please note there is a 3 night minimum for Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years eve. Otherwise, we have a two night minimum.

About Dan Jacobs, Owner

We have been providing our homes on Bolivar Peninsula to beach lovers for more than 15 years. When Hurricane Ike hit, all four were completely destroyed. It has taken a long time to get restarted, but we now have a beautiful home that we're proud to make available to you and your family.

Dan Jacobs, Owner purchased this house in 2014

Why Dan Jacobs, Owner chose Texas Gulf Coast

I grew up in southeast Texas and spent many of my summers in my cousins beach house 100 yards from Rollover Pass. Then I spent my high school summers in 'The Zoo' in tents that sometimes got swamped by high tides. As times got better we purchased our first home in the 90s (literally next door to The Lone Palm Resort) and then added additional homes to provide to beach lovers that came from around the US and Canada. Our last home was Caplen Shores, Texas' finest beachfront rental, which slept 32 and we truly miss. Unfortunately, the subdivision was completely destroyed, and will probably never be rebuilt.

We built this property so that beach goers can have a great spot to enjoy our wonderful Bolivar Peninsula without having to spend their time in a tent on the beach like I did growing up.

Some ask why 'The Lone Palm Resort'. The lone palm that stands in front of our home was virtually the only thing that withstood the ravages of Hurricane Ike.

What makes this house unique

As an owner that doesn't utilize a management company or real estate broker, we can do things the others can't such as allowing early check ins, late check outs, etc., as long as we're aware of it. We are also able to respond quickly and make decisions about problems that may occur during your stay. Renting from a management company requires contacting that company and hopefully they can reach the owner. Then they'll have to get authorization from the owner and hopefully find someone to respond to the problem. I'm the owner. I answer the phone. I will get your calls. I know who to call. I'll get the problem resolved. We do not charge a deposit for regular rentals. Your rental agreement provides for a resolution to intentional damage by guests.

This property has everything from the perfect view to accessibility to the beach and all the amenities a family could ever ask for. The owners are amazing and extremely willing to help if needed. If our family doesn't grow anymore we will be back lol. Thank you for all of your hospitality and your quick response to every question we had.

Thank you,

Betsy and John Watkins and Family

Couldn't have been better! Exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5

This was a family vacation for my husband and I and our 5 children (ages 2-12) and my parents and niece and nephew (6 yr old twins). The beach was write off the main deck (I'd say 63 steps describes it pretty perfectly). The main deck was a perfect evening relaxation spot being completely shaded! The house was perfectly stocked with everything we needed. We brought 2 hammocks to hang up on the deck, and this was just an added plus - at least one of my kids fell asleep in a hammock every night. The beach was very clean and very few people - closest people were about 100 yrds to either side of us. The a/c worked great - which is a huge requirement with the humidity, and the outdoor shower made cleaning up after the beach so easy! We are already planning our next stay!

Fantastic Beach Stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the Lone Palm Resort and loved every minute of it. The house is beautifully decorated and has all the amenities for comfort and entertaining. The kitchen is fully equipped and spacious. . There are TV's in every room, although we rarely turned them on since there was a beautiful ocean across the road. The 2 outdoor decks are perfectly situated to sit out in deck chairs and view the ocean by day or night. The beach is 3 minutes away and very clean and uncrowded. We enjoyed using the outdoor grill for most meals and using the new washer and dryer to keep beach towels clean and ready for the next day. It was a great house for entertaining and for family get togethers. We left there today, our last day, with many happy memories. We hope to rent this house again and highly recommend it to anyone who wants a relaxing comfortable stay at the beach.

Simply The Best

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house in prime location. Far better than anything we've rented in the area. Nicely furnished, luxurious master suite, fine linens, fully-equipped kitchen, spotlessly clean, plus personal attention from owner Dan. Three generations of our family enjoyed it immensely. As we used to own a beach house of our own, we know how much effort must go into keeping it in such a pristine condition. We're looking forward to another stay next summer.

We like to cook but always plan at least one meal at Stingaree. Ask for a table by the windows for views of passing tugboats and barges.

Other recommendations: visit the old fort near the ferry; take a ferry ride.

I cannot recommend the house highly enough (though I'd really prefer to keep it a secret!).
