This is the place for a family beach vacation. Fish in the surf, from a jetty, or in the bay. Coffee on the deck in the morning. Sun and sand in the day. Grill a burger or the fish you catch. Build a campfire in the evening (BRING FIREWOOD). Coastal Chalet is located on a fairly remote part of Follet's Island, however Galveston Island is just over the causeway, nine miles to the east. Moody Gardens, The Schlitterbahn, the historic Galveston Strand District, and many restaurants are located on Galveston Island

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We weekend at the beach, and we think this area is the best part of the Texas Gulf Coast. The house is located on a somewhat rural beach, surrounded by 1/2 acre of natural beauty.

Why the Owner Chose Surfside Beach:
We chose this location because of the wide sandy beaches, natural beauty, and privacy. Coastal Chalet is located on Follett's Island, away from the crowds at Surfside Beach and Galveston. A private drive ends at the house, with a private walk-over leading down to the beach.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love watching the pelicans, herons, and, occasionally, dolphins in the bay. The unobstructed beach views and privacy make this a truly relaxing beach experience. Endless hours can be spent swimming and playing in the sand. This is also a great spot for saltwater fishing.
