A still undiscovered (yes!) corner of the Texas beach.
Our cozy beach cottage offers an unparalleled beach location. Set right at the head of thousands of feet of housing-free beach. Stuck out almost in to the ocean, with the waves rolling up all but beneath your feet. Nestled right at the point where the serene waters of San Luis pass meet the rolling waves of Treasure Island Beach.
'You See So Much Sky and Water'
We finished an exhaustive remodeling of this house in August, 2013 with one principle in mind: The view must dictate everything.
Living Room: We filled the ocean-facing side with soaring floor to ceiling windows, taking advantage of every inch of this magnificent view of the surf. Looking the other way in this room, more modest but carefully located windows offer a view out over the waters of San Luis Pass. A large flat screen television offers a full HD DirectTV lineup.
Kitchen: The kitchen comes fully equipped with cookware, dishes, utensils, coffee-maker, blender, toaster, and appliances. The open floorplan provides the same ocean view as the living room out over the kitchen island.
Bedrooms (all bedrooms come with DirectTV-equipped flat screen televisions): In the middle bedroom we designed the floor-to-ceiling windows to create a sweeping view down the beach from the Queen-size bed's location. Resist the urge to close the drapes at night and be rewarded by waking up to a fantastic view from your pillow. A fold-away desk is located along the wall, just in case the laptop-in-bed approach isn't your style. The corner bedroom allowed us some bonus opportunities with the view. A wall of floor-to-ceiling windows at the foot of the Queen-size bed gives a dramatic view of the ocean and sky while the other wall offers a view as far as the eye can see down the beach. Again, leave the drapes open and you will be glad you did in the morning. The bunkroom has bed-space for 4 and a wall full of games, puzzles, and children's books. A comfy full-size bed still benefits from a nice view down the beach and allow this room to serve as a third master if needed.
Porches Our porch areas offer a shaded dining area with a view out over San Luis Pass, a sunny (at least during the middle of the day) area with Adirondack chairs with views of the beach, and a shaded/sunny lounge area with views of both.
Others: There is a dining nook with a built-in bench seating, a utility closet with a washer and dryer, and two full bathrooms. One is a standard sized bathroom with a tub and the other is a small bathroom with a shower.
The house has bed spots for 8. Any more would be quite a crowd for this 967 square foot house. In a pinch the living room couch can fold out into a full-size bed (though for space reasons this is not recommended).

About the owner: We are three avid beach-lovers (David, Tina and Rags the dog) from Houston and Austin. We met on the ultimate frisbee field, an up and coming sport that is self-refereed, non-contact and based upon the respect of your opponent. We have traveled to many countries playing in tournaments and have played in multiple World Games. The latest escapade is the World Beach tournament hosted in Dubai this March! Check out highlight reels on YouTube!
We are beach people. As native Texans, we both frequently went on family trips to Galveston. Our love for a quiet family escape brought us to Treasure Island. After spending many weekends at David's father's house, we lucked out and purchased this property just down the beach.
Though the home is a recent purchase, we already have many memories and are looking forward for more to come. We hope that you will also create lasting memories during your stay.
Why the Owner Chose Treasure Island: Our goal was to have a serene calming decor throughout the house. We also maximized the amount of windows to view the ocean and beach.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The view from the living room makes it seem that the house is floating on water.
