Owner Description: Blake and Diane built this house just before Ike and the house had no real damage. It is the most beautiful location on earth. Blake is an exploration geologist with the 7th largest oil company (no not BP) and Diane is a Speech-Language Pathologist currently working in a private practice with children with learning differences. We have two girls. Our oldest graduated from the University of Montana-Missoula with a Bachelors of Arts in History. Our youngest graduated from St. Edwards University in Austin with a Bachelors of Arts in Kinesiology and Pre-physical Therapy. Diane specializes in adopting special need greyhounds. They love visiting the beach!
Why the Owner Chose San Luis Pass: Clear waters of the offshore Gulf come into the Pass giving the area especially clear blue water and lots of shells/sand dollars accumulate on this end of the barrier island. The ends of barrier islands are great places for fish, birds, and beautiful sand dunes. The far away lights across the pass are beautiful and provide a view that other areas do not experience at night. We built within a quiet residential community.
Unique Benefits of this House: This house is in a quiet family area. It is the last house on a dead end road that stops at the beach and we have a couple of empty lots on one side of the house so no one needs to listen to neighbors. The beach has limited access so its never crowded like other beaches in the area. Sunrise comes up across the Gulf and is a beautiful sight from the kitchen, dining room, and front porch. Patches of yellow and orange flowers cover dunes around the house.
