Car: Recommended

This is the place for a family beach vacation. Fish in the surf, from a jetty, or in the bay. Coffee on the deck in the morning. Sun and sand in the day. Grill a burger or the fish you catch. Build a campfire in the evening (BRING FIREWOOD). Coastal Chalet is located on a fairly remote part of Follet's Island, however Galveston Island is just over the causeway, nine miles to the east. Moody Gardens, The Schlitterbahn, the historic Galveston Strand District, and many restaurants are located on Galveston Island

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We weekend at the beach, and we think this area is the best part of the Texas Gulf Coast. The house is located on a somewhat rural beach, surrounded by 1 acre of natural beauty.

Why the Owner Chose Surfside Beach, TX, USA:
We chose this location because of the wide sandy beaches, natural beauty, and privacy. Coastal Chalet is located on Follet's Island, away from the crowds at Surfside Beach and Galveston. A private drive ends at the house, with a private walk-over leading down to the beach. *Renovations, including addition of bedroom + bathroom, completed in Jan. 2016.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love watching the coastal birds and spotting dolphins in the Gulf.. The unobstructed beach views and privacy make this a truly relaxing beach experience. Endless hours can be spent swimming, playing in the sand, relaxing on the deck. This is also a great spot for saltwater fishing. We often enjoy fresh redfish, whiting, flounder, speckled trout, etc.
