Why Paul chose Gulf Coast

Shrimp Boats where you can buy fresh shrimp, 110 miles from Galveston where cruise ships can be accessed, & 110 Miles from Corpus Christie, quiet get-a-way from all the chaotic life of the city, small town living within 10 miles where one can find the friendly service at local family owned restaurants. Private pier where one can enjoy the daily catch without crossing lines with the person fishing next to them. All the amenities of home, where one can find quiet relaxation without staying in a hotel.

What makes this house unique

Close to Off Shore Fishing

Several Fishing Guides Availble

Wwatch the Dolphins from the Pier

So peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our week at this house. The newly remodeled bathroom is beautiful and the neighbors were great. The deck was a terrific time to spend together relaxing and recharging. I truly feel refreshed. The fishing was hindered because of all of the rain from the week before but we did manage to catch a few.

We enjoyed our time at the Crab Trap. The pier was very nice. Our only complaint was waiting over a hour past our check-in time to get the entry code. Overall an enjoyable experience.

Crab Trap--4/19 through 4/22/2016

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the home. The view of the bay from the deck & pier was great. The house was clean & well equipped; new kitchen & bathroom. There was another downstairs room that had a den & washer & dryer. The location is close to a lot of activities. The owners were very helpful with directions, etc.
