About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This is just the most fun place in the world to get away to and the house is just primo with lots of high end amenities. Large covered deck has 180 degree uninterrupted view of Pass and Gulf and you look directly down at the seashore; best kitchen ever has entire bank of windows overlooking beach while dinner is prepared on the long granite counter. We have the best reviews-read them. Dining and living rooms overlook Pass and Gulf. Extensive beaches for shelling and walking and volleyball. We also have another new beachfront home close by for families wishing to vacation together.

Lots of people kayak from here and kayaks can be launched on the bay side as well. Extensive parks across the bay for birding by boat. Also San Luis Pass has always been a championship fishing location.

Wonderful breezes year-long. Great view of sunrise over Gulf and a view of the sunset over the back bay. All bedrooms have stone countertops with large vessel glass sinks in the room. Granite countertops throughout kitchen and bar area. Enjoy dinner on the deck looking out on the beaches and lights across the pass. Stone floors throughout entire house with intricate 'rug' stonework. Great birding route with lots of pelicans, herons, and shorebirds. Beach has limited access to cars and is in process of becoming a pedestrian beach for shell collecting and kids play areas. House has ramp and stair access. Three flat screen TVs with satellite/HDTV living room. Spotting scope for bird viewing. Quality kitchenware, linens, towels, etc. New front load washer/dryer, microwave, toaster, dishwasher, frig with ice in door, large double oven stove with convection cooking.

Owner info

About the owner: 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 Pathologist. We have two girls at University (one graduated from St Edwards and is applying to medical school and one at U. of Montana Missoula). Diane specializes in adopting special need greyhounds.

Why the Owner Chose Freeport, TX, USA:
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 at night and provide a view that other areas do not have at night. We built within a community but it is quiet because we have no immediate neighbors.

The Unique Benefits at 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, with an empty lot to one side. The beach has limited access so there are never lots of people on the beach. 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 seasonally.
