Iconic Gulf-front house with balcony, large deck & amazing views - dog-friendly

The only house left standing after Hurricane Ike leveled the surrounding area in 2008, experience this historic and iconic Gilchrist home on the Bolivar Peninsula firsthand. While here, you'll savor being only a short drive away from numerous beaches, as well as local restaurants along the water and fishing charters for mellow days on the water. Port Bolivar is also nearby with several nature preserves to discover and a petting zoo for family outings.

Back at your vacation stay, stunning ocean views and the soothing sounds of the waves serve as a serene backdrop. Enjoy the water views from the balcony or deck while sipping your morning coffee or unwinding with a glass of wine in the evening. Inside, you'll be treated to a blend of nautical decor and a homey ambience everyone will surely appreciate. Lounge blissfully in the living space watching your favorite streaming service on the smart TV or head out to the well-equipped kitchen to prepare a snack or entire meals for everyone. The provided recipe books and stainless steel appliances ensure every meal will be delicious! Indulge at the table or take everything out to the furnished wraparound deck and dine alfresco as the Gulf breeze brushes against your face. Wind down for the evening in any of the comfortable bedrooms. The primary bedroom even has direct access to the balcony, allowing you to begin and end every day with picturesque views of the water.

Modern amenities you'll appreciate include central air-conditioning, a washer/dryer, and free WiFi.
