Newly built in 2014, 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 Dish Network 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.
