About Cheri Schlosser

We live just North of Houston and use the house for our family and friends as well.

Cheri Schlosser purchased this house in 2009

Why Cheri Schlosser chose Gulf Coast

We bought our house after Hurricane Ike repaired the damage to the exterior (House next door collapsed and hit side of house). Interior was also redone.

What makes this house unique

Very private and relaxing part of the beach. Our house is located on the nice beach on the gulf side of the pass. Many of the houses for rent are located on the dangerous pass side of the island and have a rocky shore.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello, we loved staying at he beach house and luckily we missed the problems with seaweed. The beaches were cleared and the water was clear (for Texas beaches). The place had great views even though we didn't have to trudge up a million steps like our last rental. Thanks Much! Rene

Great stay over all

  • 4 of 5

We were a little disappointed when we realized just how bad the grill was damaged. It was basically falling off the stand. And there was a slight smell of sewege under the house, but no issues inside! Over all our stay was amazing! Enjoyed the short walk to the beach and cozy neighborhood. It was perfectly in the middle from Surfside and galveston main attractions.

Owner's Response: I checked the smell and from what I can tell it is coming from the new house across the street, but I'll keep an eye on it. We did have the system cleaned out recently. The grill seemed fine and then fell to peices in a matter of a couple weeks. The salty air destroys them pretty fast. I brought another one down till I can get another big one welded on. Thanks, Steven

Close to the beach

  • 4 of 5

The house was close to the beach but we didn't expect to see a sand dune blocking us from walking straight to it. The picture needs to be updated, but it was only a short walk between two house to get around it... The house is a good bargain, clean, very roomy and like I said close to the beach. My family and I had a great time collecting shells and making memories! We look forward to booking again in the future!!

Awesome stay

  • 4 of 5

This property is in a prime location. Treasure Island is a nice and quiet neighborhood where you can still let loose and have a good time without the big and rowdy crowds. Literally 2 minute walk to the beach. Great sunrises and sunsets. Nice bon fire on the beach. The house is a perfect size for two small families. The only complaint is that the barbecue pit did have a hole in the bottom. Nothing a good thick patch of aluminum foil couldn't fix. But it probably does need to be replaced soon.
