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 Freeport

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 quiet, residential community.

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.

Beautiful Quiet Place on the Beach with all the ammenities and supplies away from the crowds.

  • 5 of 5

We had small children that were able to play on beach, without fear of crowds or cars. The house was set up with all the dishes, appliances that we could ever need. The house was very clean. Lots of places to sit, sleep, hang, for both of our families that we vacationed with. Huge fridge, and the owners were very receptive to any questions we had before and after the trip.

Return visitors to this lovely house

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time in this house-both times in December. Although the weather doesn't always cooperate, this is the most wonderful beach house. With its covered porch and rocking chairs, you can sit outside and enjoy the beach even if it's raining. If it's too windy, you can park your chair in the window inside and enjoy the beach from there. We love this house, and the owners are terrific to work with - very responsive to questions. The house is spotless; everything you need is there (except for the paper goods, etc. you are instructed to bring). I've already booked it for May to celebrate my retirement.

If you're on the fence about this property, get off the fence and rent it! You will not be disappointed!

Wonderful home in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was just as it was represented or better down to the linens and towels. The kitchen was well stocked and the house was exceptionally clean. Diane was wonderful, providing all the information we might need about the house and the surrounding area. The couches and chairs were a bit low for anyone with knee issues but that isn't really a criticism, as we spent more time on the wonderful porch enjoying the view. All but one of our group (me) saw dolphins from the porch. Guess I will just have to go back until I see them, too!

2nd time staying here, cannot wait to go back hopefully every year!

  • 5 of 5

Let me start off by saying the customer service from the Blackwelder family is outstanding. They are very tentative and make the stay so pleasurable from their amazing service. The VIEW is absolutely to die for. It is the most perfect beach house. It has all the amenities imaginable. Once you move in, you never want to leave. Direct beach access, semi private beach, it really does not get any better. This home is what dreams are made of. It's also pet friendly! I had the most amazing vacation and it was so amazing because I had my dogs with me. Everything about this place is perfect, absolutely perfect. I hope to make this a yearly stay, i love it that much! This is definitely the place to be if you have been considering a beach house rental!

Beautiful view of the San Luis Pass

  • 5 of 5

Family of 7 slept fairly well given that one bed was VERY high (luckily we found a stool!) and the bunk beds were very comfy! The kitchen was extremely well stocked (we had to buy a nonstick pan for eggs), and the house was clean and well stocked with paper products. You can't swim off the beach right by the house (only true complaint), but we rented a golf cart and made the short trip to the Jolly Roger beach which was awesome! Our dogs loved the trip, lots of dogs for them to play with on the beach which is why we love Surfside sooo much. The water, sand, sun, MOSQUITOS (😵?), fishing (caught loads of trout and red fish) made a trip we will not forget! Thank you for letting us stay and we'd love to come back very soon!
