VRBO Bear stayed here: We found this property to be beary special
Step away from stress and time and into 'An Artist's View'. Our beautiful beachfront home guides you into relaxation, and rewards you with opportunities for offshore fishing, swimming, beaching, reading, kayaking, bird watching, napping on our beautiful decks or simply breathing. Sink into our living room furniture, enjoy the glow of the fireplace and reacquaint yourself with loved ones. An Artist's View was designed to provide separate 'play areas' for conversation and communing but all open to one another. Upstairs you may enjoy playing a game or two of pool on our regulation size pool table or watch a movie on the 46' HD TV with DVD player. For conventional entertainment you will find Galveston conveniently within 20 minutes. Whether you are inside or out, An Artist's View will feed your soul and deliver the vacation you deserve.
'An Artist's View' is built remotely on beautiful, sandy beach. Both upper and lower decks look out over dunes, rolling surf and 88 acres of unspoiled, nature-filled wetlands perfect for butterfly counting or bird watching where Brown Pelican's and others tour daily. The beach is quiet and allows for walks on uninterrupted sand for miles. Don't forget to bring a basket for the variety of shells you'll want to add to your collection. From our decks you can view the Bay behind us as well as crashing surf in front. Enjoy a happy hour or two on the upper deck and experience the amazing sunsets you'll find in late afternoon. Texas skies have never been bigger. We hope you enjoy the natural environment that surrounds our home! Galveston is a short twenty minutes away.

What a relaxing beach getaway! As soon as I arrived, I walked up the stairs to take in the incredible views of the beach at sunset. The sound of the ocean waves, the setting sun across the ocean, and a drink in hand, this was the life for me!
The beach house was roomy, with more than enough space for our family of 8 (it could have easily accommodated 4 more bears). We enjoyed the huge family room and ample sized kitchen with views of the ocean; it was like being on a ship. We cooked a lovely meal with family all gathered around and even had a drink station set up without anyone stepping on any paws. We never felt crowded. After dinner, we gathered outside on the wrap around balcony to admire the stars glistening in the night sky. We even saw a few bears night fishing and hunting for crabs on the beach.
The bedrooms were roomy, with comfortable, inviting beds. I loved the fireplace and balcony off the upstairs bedroom. There was even a chiminea on the balcony for cool breezy evenings. I awoke to a beautiful sunrise and after a breakfast I ran right out onto the secluded beach, very clean and full of little shells to gather. I saw dolphins jumping, pelicans soaring, and fisherman casting their lines into the ocean. The little cubs joined me on the beach and we all played and sat for hours with hardly a soul around. The cubs loved running along the clean, sandy beach and wading in the shallow waters. It was perfect!
After a day on the beach, we came back to our great entertaining house, where we had fun sitting at the game table, playing one of the many games. We even got to brush up on our pool shark skills with the billard table upstairs.

Our home is on a very remote beach. Both decks are over the sand dunes looking out over the surf. The beach is quiet and remote and allows for walks on uninterrupted sand for miles. From our decks you can view the Bay behind us as well as the crashing surf in front. There are 88 acres of unspoiled wetlands between your ocean view and Bay view. Pelicans and other birds fly directly by the house on their way to their feeding areas. We hope you enjoy the natural environment that surrounds our home!

About the owner: This house is our baby! We named it quite appropriately 'An Artist's View' because of the spirit that awakens in you as you stay here. We built this house near Galveston to serve the concepts of luxury, comfort and community. Life pulls us in so many ways, how often do we get to play with, speak to and enjoy our families. We have spent many fabulous vacations with family, friends and family and friends. Watching the waves roll in and out sets our timing to a slower pace and we have found great peace, solitude and togetherness on our beautiful beach. We found Treasure Isle through renting vacation homes for Thanksgiving break. We were sold and hope you find peace and your perfect vacation in our home, 'An Artist's View'.
Why the Owner Chose San Luis Pass: Our family had been vacationing in Treasure Isle for 7 years before we came across the opportunity to build our beach house 'An Artist's View'.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We enjoy golf at Galveston Country Club and can arrange access for our renters. Our favorite time is early morning when we walk onto the beach before sunrise. Cast your pole in the ocean and sit down waiting to see what happens first...the sunrise or getting a hit from a red fish or trout.
