Update: April 8, 2020 at 11:05 CDT. VRBO may not give you the capability to price a same day check in but we assure you that we can get you in within an hour. Call or message us and we can forward a VRBO special offer link to allow you to book online for a same day check in. Please see our notes below for all the special steps we take to make sure our guests are presented with an incredibly clean and sanitized property. Almost all restaurants are open for takeout and some have delivery. Stingaree is normally closed on Monday and Tuesday and are going to open Wednesday for their normal hours. They are setting up all their outside dining tables on the deck so you can eat your food while it's hot or take it home. Steve's Landing opens today (Tuesday) at 5PM and every day through the weekend.
Huge discounts for weekly (7 night) rentals, so please make certain to put in 7 or 8 nights when checking prices even if you're only planning to stay for 3 or 4 nights. We generally have a 3 night minimum in the summer, either Thursday to Sunday or Friday to Monday. The final amounts could be very close. 7 nights might be cheaper in some cases. Even bigger discounts for monthly rentals. Let us know if you find an odd pricing arrangement and we'll do everything we can do to resolve it. If it doesn't look right to you, it probably isn't right. We'll do everything we can do to resolve the issue.
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. Our video will give you a true perspective of our location in relation to the beach as well as details of the awesome amenities we have to offer. You should find it within the first couple of pictures. If you do not see a "Video" tab above near the "Photo" tab, search The Lone Palm Resort Crystal Beach Texas on YouTube for the 11 minute detailed video.
The Galveston/Bolivar ferry runs 24/7/365. We have grocery stores and great restaurants open on The Bolivar Peninsula throughout the winter, and we're only an hour and 45 minute drive from Houston Hobby or Houston George Bush IAH airport.
We respond quickly to all questions and online booking requests. We are proud of our 5/5 rating after many years with VRBO and we're going to do what it takes to maintain it. You won't see many other 5/5s although there are many wonderful properties at Crystal Beach.
The Lone Palm Resort is a new, ultra luxury, super high tech custom beach home. The address is 1146 Gulfview, in the Bluewater Subdivision. Two of our most popular features is the reduced amount of mosquitoes you'll have to deal with and our huge yard is not overrun with stickers. We are one of the few properties that protect our guests with Terminix Quick GuardTH Mosquito Service. We like it as much as you will. We also rarely deal with stickers in the yard since we use a product that helps prevents them.
The Lone Palm Resort is definitely the most technologically modern home on the Bolivar Peninsula. With LED and 4K Ultra High Definition 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. Each bedroom has a Blu-Ray player and the dual queen bedroom has a Sony PlayStation 4 System with an extra wireless controller to keep the kids entertained if the weather isn't cooperative.
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 20 years experience as owners 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.
As a another very rare feature in any vacation rental property in the world, The Lone Palm Resort, LLC is one of very few, if any vacation rental properties on Bolivar Peninsula that has its own Automated External Defibrillator (AED). We recognize that you may be bringing your grandparents and other senior citizens to our property. Both Dan and Teresa have been trained in the use of AEDs and we recognize the addition of an AED to any property, much less a vacation rental property can be a lifesaver. We also realize that many property owners aren't willing to provide such a lifesaving measure due to the cost alone, not to mention the possible legal issues involved. We do believe that one life saved is worth the inherent risks involved. Please note: Previous training is required for use and a $500.00 fee is charged for breaking the alarmed seal.
This is a great venue for weddings, family gatherings, anniversaries and many other special events. Just let us know! We allow up to 20 attendees for an additional fee of $500.00 for 5 hours, or $500.00 per weekend for up to 14 attendees which covers the additional cleaning required in a larger group, as well as special monitoring of the event by management. Due to strict septic system limitations, there is an additional $1,500.00 charge for events with more than 14 and up to 25 attendees. This charge covers an upscale heated and air-conditioned VIP trailer mounted portable restroom with male and female sides so that your guests don't mind using the restroom. The total for 25-50 attendees is $2,000.00. We cannot accommodate more than 50 person on the property.
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.
