About the property

3 bed, two bath, FABULOUS views, a few steps to beach access!

Make some memories at Barefoot Oasis! Amazing views from two balconies, walk on beach access just steps away, drive-on access a few houses down. The perfect place to unwind!

This is a NEW LISTING, but we have a VRBO in San Antonio as well if you would like to check out our fabulous five-star reviews from very happy guests! You can be assured of the same level of comfort at the beach house.

3 beds, 2 baths, enough room for 8 adults (10 with kids) to sleep. Linens included and beds are made so all you need to do is relax upon arrival. TVs in living room and all bedrooms. Decorated with coastal decor, painted with serene, calming colors. Lots of games, puzzles, books, wifi, and direct TV for when you want to relax inside.

Gas grill and plenty of outdoor seating. Convenient outside shower to wash off sandy feet. Storage garage for your beach toys or even to store a golf cart rental! Fenced backyard. Parking for three cars.

We are at the end of a private road, so very little traffic and safe for the littles. There are three houses staggered in front of us that have permanent residents, open space on either side of our house, and the people behind us only rent to families and responsible adults, so it's a good neighborhood.

This is a second home for us, so rest assured that all home comforts and amenities will be included. Just bring your groceries and what you need for a nice day at the beach, and we supply the rest.

About Linda

I love relaxing on the beach with a good book, or watching my kids play in the water and build sand castles. It's a dream come true to finally own a beach home. I'm also addicted to finding beach glass and the shark teeth!

Linda purchased this house in 2017

Why Linda chose Gulf Coast

We couldn't believe our good luck when we saw this property for sale. As soon as I saw the picture online, I knew it had to be ours.

What makes this house unique

We were very excited, and very lucky, to find a house with such easy and convenient beach access! The views are amazing. The upper deck is my favorite place to watch the ships and surf. It is just so relaxing. There's just something about being at the beach, where all your cares melt away.

We had wonderful stay in this beautiful beach house...Everthing was exceptional. Beatifully decorate

  • 5 of 5

From the very first day to the last was awesome. It was beautiful inside and out...very comfortable felt right at home. Every room was beautifully decorated beach style and the colors on the walls made you feel very calm and relaxing. Had the best sleep ever in the the most comfortable bed. Could hear the waves on the beach and wind was refreshing. Had no problem making meals for my family the kitchen has everything you need nice dining area to gather . Very comfortable couches to watch favorite movies or just tv. Loved the balconies with the hi comfortable chairs to see the beach, watch and hear the waves coming in. The sound was amazing . The beach was just right there easy to get to , had long walks ,collecting sea shells and enjoying the fireworks . Beautiful at night. Loved the birds seagulls and pelicans watching them flying by. Took loads of pictures mostly of the beautiful beach house . And beach too. Enjoyed it so much and sitting on the balconies just looking, reading and enjoying glass wine visiting with my family. We all enjoyed our lil visit so much so that we are making plans for next year!!!!! Thanks Ms Linda for sharing your beautiful beach home with us !!!

Adorable cozy home right by the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED staying here. The owner Linda was so accommodating allowing our dogs to tag along and have friends over during our stay. This house was so cute and I felt 100% comfortable staying here. Everything we needed was here, even a pack n play for one of our littles. (We only own one and have two babies so that was awesome) let me just say, our 5 month old slept better here and was more relaxed here than she is half the time at our own home so that saying something. One thing I didn't take into consideration was all the stairs, my dogs are geriatric (one is blind and the other is almost blind) I had to cart them up and down the stairs many times, so keep that in mind if you have similar issues. However I loved that there were gates with latches at the top of all outdoor staircases. Gave me tons of peace of mind when it came to kids and dogs alike. There's tons of great beach stuff in the garage, so don't worry about bringing everything you own. They had boogie boards, beach chairs, beach toys, a canopy, and lots of other things. So close to the beach, great views. We will definitely look into staying here again. Linda was super friendly and provided us with all the information we needed. Highly recommended.

Great property! Felt just like home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying here. The home had all of the conveniences we needed with our four children. It was just a short walk or drive down to the beach and we had great views in the morning sitting on the deck drinking coffee. We enjoyed evening walks along the beach picking up shells. We also enjoyed the fenced in yard for our dog who could go right down the deck stairs into the backyard with no problem. We enjoyed the ferry ride into Galveston and enjoyed the activities of pleasure pier. We also liked being away from all the hustle and bustle. The owner was very concerned for our safety during a storm. She was so accommodating and definitely made our stay comfortable. We will definitely stay here again.

Beautiful Beach Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this home for a week as a way to get away from it all for vacation. And it didn't disappoint. We loved the porches with the awesome blue chairs on both the upper and lower levels where we had beach views, when we weren't on the beach. We also loved how close the home was to the beach, allowing us to have easy, close access. The home was clean, and the home owner made our stay effortless. There are down stairs showers so that you will not track sand into the home. We were able to grill using the home owner's grill, which we loved. Clean up and check out could not have been laid out easier by the home owner, and we found our stay from beginning to end to be easy peasy. Just what we were looking for in a vacation: rest and relaxation! Needless to say, we cannot wait to rent this place again next year! Thank you to the home owner for making this a truly wonderful vacation experience!
