San Luis Pass house description

We have the best views and direct access just steps to the beach. We are on the front of the dune with the beach a stone throw away and the front deck looks directly down on shore. We have the best reviews ever - check them out. Newly built with a large covered deck 180 degree uninterrupted view of the beach directly in front and Pass and Gulf; front room overlooks the broad and beautiful San Luis Pass and the kitchen and dining areas overlook the Gulf. An entire bank of windows in the kitchen provides great views of sunrise over the Gulf while preparing breakfast.

Kayaks can be launched directly in front or across the way in the back bay. The far side of the bay is a huge birding and wildlife park that can be boated or kayak/canoe accessed. San Luis Pass and the bay here are known for their championship fishing.
Extensive beaches for shelling and walking and volleyball. Really blue clear water is often coming into the pass from the Gulf and we have some of the best water quality around.

Wonderful breezes blow all summer long. Great view of sunrise over Gulf and a view of the sunset over the back bay. All bedrooms have stone countertops with large vessel glass sinks in the room. Granite countertops throughout kitchen and bar area. Enjoy dinner on the deck looking out on the beaches and lights across the pass. Stone floors throughout entire house with intricate ''rug'' stonework. Great birding route with lots of pelicans, herons, and shorebirds. Beach has limited access to cars and is in process of becoming a pedestrian beach for shell collecting and kids play areas. House has ramp and stair access. Three flat screen TVs with satellite/HDTV living room. Quality kitchenware, linens, towels, etc.


Owner Description: Blake and Diane built this house just before Ike and the house had no real damage. It is the most beautiful location on earth. Blake is an exploration geologist with the 7th largest oil company (no not BP) and Diane is a Speech Pathologist. We have two girls at University (one at St Edwards and one at U. of Montana Missoula). Diane specializes in adopting special need greyhounds.

Why the Owner Chose San Luis Pass: Clear waters of the offshore Gulf come into the Pass giving the area especially clear blue water and lots of shells/sand dollars accumulate on this end of the barrier island. The ends of barrier islands are great places for fish, birds, and beautiful sand dunes. The far away lights across the pass are beautiful at night and provide a view that other areas do not have at night. We built within a community but it is quiet because we have no immediate neighbors.

The Unique Benefits of this House: This house is in a quiet family area. It is the last house on a dead end road that stops at the beach and we have a couple of empty lots one either side of the house so no one needs to listen to neighbors. The beach has limited access so there are never lots of people on the beach. Sunrise comes up across the Gulf and is a beautiful sight from the kitchen, dining room, and front porch. Patches of yellow and orange flowers cover dunes around the house.

                          Just the best beach on a barrier island where the clear offshore waters coming into the pass create a setting for some of the best fishing, crabbing, shelling, and bird watching along this coast. Romantic unobstructed view of the lights (west end of Galveston Is) sparkling across the waters of the wide pass at night can be enjoyed from the spacious covered front deck. In the morning there is a spectacular view of the sun rising from the horizon across the Gulf. Sunsets over the bay can be viewed from the back deck. Pelicans flying in long lines are commonplace and come just off the deck. They dive for fish off the front deck. Its a short and beautiful drive along the barrier island to Galveston where there are the many restaurants and sights and activities. From the west side of Treasure Island, one can walk for 20 miles of unobstructed sandy Gulf beach. We have beach volleyballs, but also bring your kite.

                          Other Activities: Shopping, Kayaking, Boating, Parasailing, Shelling, Wildlife Viewing

                          Year Purchased: 2008

                          About the owner: Blake and Diane built this house just before Ike and the house had no real damage. It is the most beautiful location on earth. Blake is an exploration geologist with the 7th largest oil company (no not BP) and Diane is a Speech Pathologist. We have two girls at University (one graduated from St Edwards and is applying to medical school and one at U. of Montana Missoula). Diane specializes in adopting special need greyhounds.

                          Why the Owner Chose San Luis Pass:
                          Clear waters of the offshore Gulf come into the Pass giving the area especially clear blue water and lots of shells/sand dollars accumulate on this end of the barrier island. The ends of barrier islands are great places for fish, birds, and beautiful sand dunes. The far away lights across the pass are beautiful at night and provide a view that other areas do not have at night. We built within a community but it is quiet because we have no immediate neighbors.
