George and Valinda Scruggs’s journey began in 2014 when they discovered their passion for the Peninsula and built their first beachfront home. This passion quickly translated into more homes, creating an extensive collection of beautiful properties that they felt compelled to share.
And so recognizing the need for a personalized approach to property management, their mission to host guests with the same level of hospitality that they’d want for themselves became their goal.
“We take immense pleasure in curating the perfect vacation rental experience for you.” shares George. “Our collection of luxury properties caters to all your needs, whether it’s a family vacation, a grand gathering, or a peaceful retreat.”
He goes on to state, “In fact, every property under our care is diligently maintained and fully equipped, ready for you to step in and start creating memories. The moment you choose us for your stay, you’ll immediately notice the difference.”

What is one lesser-known fact about the Bolivar Peninsula?
Bolivar was once home to pirates and smugglers! In fact, the Bolivar Peninsula and the broader Galveston area in Texas have a storied history that involves pirates, particularly the infamous Jean Lafitte.
In the early 19th century, Jean Lafitte and his brother Pierre established a base of operations on Galveston Island, which is very close to the Bolivar Peninsula.
Lafitte operated a pirate kingdom of sorts in Galveston, engaging in smuggling, slave trade, and other illegal activities. He and his band of pirates took advantage of the island’s natural harbor and its strategic location for their operations. Lafitte named his Galveston base “Campeche.”
Over time, as the United States government increased its presence in the region and put pressure on pirate activities, Lafitte was eventually forced to abandon Galveston. However, his time there, as well as the broader history of piracy and smuggling in the region, left an indelible mark on local lore and history.
