  • Terrific experience

    "I've had an incredibly pleasant experience while renting this cozy place. It was very close to various great restaurants and it was located in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood, yet very close to downtown. The owner provided great customer service while being available any time of the day for any possible issues. Her communication skills and enthusiastic personality made every interaction very pleasant. I would definitely recommend this studio to friends or relatives."

  • Excellent Rental

    "The rental was more than we expected. Beautiful view on the intercostal waterfront and very comfortable amenities. Very close to restaurants and fishing off the Pirate's Landing Pier. Literally only minutes to the Queen Isabel Memorial Causeway to SPI. My family and I enjoyed the view of the shrimp boats, other boats and even tugboats pushing barges through. And don't forget about the varies birds and dolphin viewing right from the deck. I do recommend going to the shrimp company to buy some fresh shrimp for grilling Just minutes from the beach at SPI and many boat tours and fishing charters. Neighborhood was extremely peaceful and quiet. I did not get an opportunity to play golf, but the course was very green and well maintained. Check-in process was easy and streamlined. I do recommend getting in your beach time during the week since the area gets busy once the weekend hits. Will certainly look for availability with the property during my next stay"

Texas Travel Tips

Activities at Texas Beach Rentals

Texas's southeastern border runs along the Gulf of Mexico. It is one of the less populated areas of the state and a great vacation option. You can enjoy beautiful views that stretch out over the Gulf from Galveston beach house rentals or South Padre beach vacation rentals. There are many activities in the area including deep sea fishing, beachcombing and sailing. If you plan to visit the coastal regions, it is best to do so in the spring and early summer months when the weather is milder. It can be fun exploring the smaller coastal towns, and browsing antique shops and general stores for souvenirs.
