Step away from stress and time and into 'An Artist's View'. Our beautiful beachfront home guides you into relaxation, and rewards you with opportunities for offshore fishing, swimming, beaching, reading, kayaking, bird watching, napping on our beautiful decks or simply breathing. Sink into our living room furniture, enjoy the glow of the fireplace and reacquaint yourself with loved ones. An Artist's View was designed to provide separate 'play areas' for conversation and communing but all open to one another. Upstairs you may enjoy playing a game or two of pool on our regulation size pool table or watch a movie on the 55" HD TV with DVD player. For conventional entertainment you will find Galveston conveniently within 20 minutes. Whether you are inside or out, An Artist's View will feed your soul and deliver the vacation you deserve.
'An Artist's View' is built remotely on beautiful, sandy beach. Both upper and lower decks look out over dunes, rolling surf and 88 acres of unspoiled, nature-filled wetlands perfect for butterfly counting or bird watching where Brown Pelican's and others tour daily. The beach is quiet and allows for walks on uninterrupted sand for miles. Don't forget to bring a basket for the variety of shells you'll want to add to your collection. From our decks you can view the Bay behind us as well as crashing surf in front. Enjoy a happy hour or two on the upper deck and experience the amazing sunsets you'll find in late afternoon. Texas skies have never been bigger.
We hope you enjoy the natural environment that surrounds our home! Galveston is a short twenty minutes away.

About Walter P Wallace & Amanda E Wallace
This house is our baby! We named it quite appropriately 'An Artist's View' because of the spirit that awakens in you as you stay here. We built this house near Galveston to serve the concepts of luxury, comfort and community. Life pulls us in so many ways, how often do we get to play with, speak to and enjoy our families. We have spent many fabulous vacations with family, friends and family and friends. Watching the waves roll in and out sets our timing to a slower pace and we have found great peace, solitude and togetherness on our beautiful beach. We found Treasure Isle through renting vacation homes for Thanksgiving break. We were sold and hope you find peace and your perfect vacation in our home, 'An Artist's View'.
Walter P Wallace & Amanda E Wallace purchased this House in 2007
Why Walter P Wallace & Amanda E Wallace chose Freeport
Our family had been vacationing in Treasure Isle for 7 years before we came across the opportunity to build our beach house 'An Artist's View'.
What makes this House unique
Our favorite time is early morning when we walk onto the beach before sunrise. Cast your pole in the ocean and sit down waiting to see what happens first...the sunrise or getting a hit from a red fish or trout. You know its a good fishing spot when all the charter boats are parked in front of our house casting in towards the shore!

Relax in this oceanfront gem
We came to Freeport looking for to get away and relax by the ocean and that is exactly what we found at The Artist’s View. We enjoyed every minute of our time at this home away from home. We had planned to go to Galveston to check out the boardwalk but we didn’t want to leave our beachfront paradise. The owners were so accommodating and gave us great information about the area. We will definitely we back!
The home was beautiful and exactly like the photos describe and look. Plenty of space and then some for myself and family of 12. The beach was literally a few steps away. Mr. Wallace was very responsive and helpful throughout the entire stay. The house was well equipped with everything that you could think of for both kids and adults. All you need is your food and you are set. Best part was that it is pet friendly and we were able to bring our family pets who loved the beach as well. Everyone fell in love with house and would definitely rent again for future events.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We are dog people so we realize how important it is to include them in your vacation. We look forward to having you stay with us again.
Very Relaxing and Comfortable
Charming beach house with great beach access and views. The kitchen is well stocked with plates, pots, silverware, etc. Owner was very nice and easy to work with. Thank you for sharing your house with us!
Perfect getaway for multiple family weekend trip
Spacious and right on the beach, this home was just what we needed to unwind. The kitchen was fabulous, perfect for cooking meals for a large group and had everything we needed. We especially loved dining at the fantastic table, enough to seat 10! Couches were so soft and comfy for early morning visiting. Waking up to that gorgeous view was a chart topper! We all loved the balconies and views. And the upstairs game room with pool table was just ideal for our teenage boys. The exterior door was pretty temperamental and the linens/towels/bedding could use a little updating; but overall, this was ideal for our short stay! One more note, we so enjoyed all the artwork in each room-fun fun! Thank you so much!
We totally agree on the bedding and linens. Each fall we replace all after a rental season. We have already ordered new linens and towels and they should be in the house before Thanksgiving. So glad you enjoyed the rest of the house.
It was great
We had a great time at mr Wallace, the house is very good !!!! Thank you.
We loved our stay! We will be back for sure! No complaints!! A must stay!!
Our home is on a very remote beach. Both decks are over the sand dunes looking out over the surf. The beach is quiet and remote and allows for walks on uninterrupted sand for miles. From our decks you can view the Bay behind us as well as the crashing surf in front. There are 88 acres of unspoiled wetlands between your ocean view and Bay view. Pelicans and other birds fly directly by the house on their way to their feeding areas. We hope you enjoy the natural environment that surrounds our home!
