About Diane Blackwelder

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 Diane Blackwelder chose Gulf Coast

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

You will not want to leave ! I promise you that !

  • 5 of 5

I had just finished a 42 day hitch Offshore in South America and was looking to restfully decompress and I most certainly found it with this property.

I was attracted to the property because of the vast amount of positive reviews in addition to presence of a handicap ramp which thought would fascilitate my senior canine getting in and out of the house and it most certainly did.

The panoramic view from this house is staggering. When we arrived the temps were in the low 70s and the blue water was running all the way into the San Luis pass. The locals call this location the "Bluff" because of its amazing elevated view of the Gulf extending into the San Luis Pass.

We rented a golf cart from K-6 rentals in Jamaica beach and they delivered it to the house . We had quite the time cruising the beach , neighborhood , and San Luis Pass park which has an entry across the Bluewater highway from the neighborhood.

The Blackwelders were so very accomodating and such a delight .The house was stocked with everything twice over and extremely clean .

So definitely rent this place , rent a golf cart , and enjoy the awesome view.

We will be back soon !!

Spacious, clean, water front property with amazing seashell hunting!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week! We enjoyed the beach and the deck every day! We liked that it was away from the touristy areas and quiet. Our son loved the beach and all his seashells he found! We would come back with family next time! Thank you for letting us use your amazing home for the week!

Perfect spot for vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable home right on the water. Quiet area with sandy beaches nearby. Fishing is available, although it was unseasonably cold during our stay. Watched sunrise while sipping coffee in the mornings. Galveston is close enough to enjoy, while far enough away to ward off crowds. Every room in the house is comfortable. Kitchen was fantastic and well appointed - every convenience of home. Wireless internet and satellite tv were a welcome touch. We grilled out most evenings, and the grill and propane were a great benefit. Owners were great to work with and quick to reply to questions. We will definitely return to this property!

A wonderful beach house & great owners to work with!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house, and we will be back! There were four of us, and plenty of room for everyone without being in each others' way all the time. Big, wonderfully appointed kitchen. Rocking chairs on the covered porch for plenty of relaxation time and watching the shore birds. Diane, the owner, was a delight to work with and very responsive to all of my questions. The house was spotless and ready to enjoy when we got there. We plan to stay longer next time and do some cooking on the grill and in the kitchen. This time we ate out for seafood most of the time. If you are questioning whether this is the place for you, don't hesitate - grab it! (just not when we want it!! :-) )

Remarkable Retreat with easy access to beach :)

  • 5 of 5

The beach house was prefect! It was nice romantic getaway but I think next time we'll bring family and friends. It's big enough for us all to enjoy!

Thank you for inviting us into you lovely home and answering our questions about the area and house. We look forward to our next visit.

A Week in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

After visiting and touring the Galveston Island area, we wouldn't want to stay anywhere else! Beautiful, modern, clean beach home that accommodated six of us perfectly! Our whole family loved the location, just far enough away from the tourist crowds. We woke up to beautiful ocean sunrises every morning and saw amazing intracoastal sunsets every evening. Fishing right out on the beach was prime, the family caught bait fish, flounder, red fish and a 28 inch bull. Sunbathe, collect shells and sand dollars, watch hermit and blue crabs in the tide pools, take long walks, watch the pelicans fish(bring binoculors!) If all the relaxation gets to be too much, take a short drive to tour Galveston and eat at some of the many terrific restaurants the island has to offer. Bait shop/mini mart right down the road called Brite Lite, super friendly people and helpful with local advice. Alexx's Market is a great place to get oysters by the bushel and fresh seafood to grill out on the deck. Diane was quick to address questions and our deposit was refunded promptly, thank you for sharing your slice of paradise! We try to pick a new location for our big family vacations each year but we miss this place already and look forward to coming back!

Note: Be sure to have cash if you cross the San Luis bridge, it's $2.00
