                  The World Birding Center is located on the island. This wonderful place not only features the birds, but all the eco systems of this part of the country. There is also a wonderful sea turtle rescue where they give talks about the turtles that are there. If you are here when they lay their eggs you can go to the beach to see them hatch and return to the sea. The Atascosa Wildlife Preserve is only a few miles away. There are too many restaurants to name, beach front bars with music and lots of music all over the island. You can even sky dive if you are so inclined.


                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2001

                  About the owner: I grew up in Houston, but haven't lived in Texas for a while. My husband and I came to the island to give him a rest and fell in love with it. When we drive over the causeway on our way home there is a definite sadness to be leaving a place so beautiful.

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                  This place is so beautiful and there is so much to do here. But it isn't necessary to do anything except watch the waves and the sun setting over the bay.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Our house doesn't look like much on the outside, but inside it's a paradise. I like to cook so I fell in love with the kitchen. My husband likes to work (yes, he still works) in the sunroom where he can watch everyone walking to the beach. We both love the hot tub that's a part of the pool in the private back yard. And we love being so close to the beach just across the street.
