San Luis Pass house description

Enjoy miles of peaceful oceanfront just beyond the west end of Galveston. You will find this sun-soaked beach house rental on the bend where the Gulf of Mexico flows through the San Luis Pass into Galveston West Bay — such a breathtaking break from the daily grind!

A vacation estate with a 360-degree deck that provides spectacular sunrise and sunset panoramas of the Gulf Coast and San Luis Pass. 2 BR, 2 bath. Vaulted ceilings. Sleeps 8. All amenities provided, including golf cart usage. Circular drive, flags flying, designed for a getaway, yet near the bridge to Galveston. Boat launch in neighborhood, along with playground, fishing pier, convenience store. Note the utility lift for gear (no need to carry bags & coolers upstairs).

San Luis Pass is famous for having some of the best trout fishing along the Gulf Coast, and so much more! The 12-mile beach connecting San Luis Pass and Surfside stretches out to provide a perfect spot for picnics, kite-flying, and building castles in the sand. You can also surf, swim, hunt for shells, and sunbathe — just a sample of the many activities available on Treasure Island.

In the evening, after a full day of sun and fun, relax outside on the beach house deck and drink in some amazing stargazing — away from the bright lights and tourist crowds of Galveston and Surfside.

Situated on The Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail, San Luis Pass provides one of the state's top ten birding areas. Grab your binoculars — or use ours to watch the pelicans dive and the dolphins play.

          Other Amenities

              • Three large posters and several coffee table books are very helpful in identifying the Gulf Coast birds, shells and fish that are prevalent in this area. Indeed, I've never seen so many seashells as I see along the Gulf beach side of the neighborhood! The San Luis Pass includes some of the best bird-watching territory in Texas, as well as the best fishing. We see waders near the house catching big fish all the time. Please take advantage of the sink in the garage to clean all those fish you catch! ...moreless

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2011

                      About the owner: I am a native Texan who grew up in Ft. Worth and moved to Houston with parents when my preacher father took a job here. I met my husband here, had my children in Houston hospitals and plan to spend the rest of my life here. I'm a self-employed Certified Financial Planner who doesn't manage money, but works by the hour creating intricate financial plans. My three children are grown but haven't given us any grandchildren. We have two wonderful mutts who are our babies now. Buddy and Punkin. We have worked hard to make our house a fun and comfortable place to visit.

                      Why the Owner Chose San Luis Pass:
                      After considerable shopping for a beach house, we drove up in front of this house and its fancy huge circular driveway and flags flying. It was love at first sight. The views from the front deck and the rear, along with the fascinating convergence of San Luis Pass and the Gulf of Mexico convinced us that this was our choice.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      With five lots on which the house resides, and a large circular driveway, there is no shortage of parking for cars or a boat and trailer. The neighborhood has a fishing pier and a boat launch; although surf fishing is very popular as well. Our customized golf cart lets you explore the beach at San Luis Pass and its inland tide pool that changes with the tide and the seasons. Or you can drive down the long stretch of beach toward Surfside with the dunes on one side and the ocean on the other.
