About Owner/Property Manager
In 2008 Hurricane Ike destroyed our 1960s fishing camp. We built Nautical on our existing property with over 1000 sq. ft. of covered porch including a large screened porch because the views are expansive and beautiful. Nautical's unique offers incredible views of bay, wetlands, sunrise & gorgeous sunsets. Relax on the porch and enjoy the birds' daily migrations: Brown Pelicans, pink Roseate Spoonbills, Grey Blue Herons, Great White, Snowy and Cattle Egrets, various Terns & the classic Laughing Sea Gulls. In the winter season elegant White Pelicans float for hours in the pier fishing lights. If you have watercraft, you can launch from a public access boat ramp within walking distance. A Nautical lazy day: Grab coffee & watch sunrise from porch, eat breakfast, drive the kids 5 minutes to West Beach, collect seashells & build sand castles! Rinse sand off kids in 2 Cabana Showers before throwing burgers on the grill. After quiet time on wraparound Bay Porch, let children enjoy an afternoon of pier fishing, crabbing, or bird watching/cycling along our quiet, mile long dead-end street. Toss bread to seagulls from Nautical's private pier in late afternoon. After dinner, night fish on the pier or relax in the screened porch and enjoy the breezes and expansive skyline framing West Bay.

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Sportsman Road
Our lot is situated in an idyllic waterfront & natural location yet civilization is at our doorstep. (Amusements, restaurants & stores are just 10 minutes away!) We spent our childhood summers - fishing, crabbing, boating, sailing on West Bay and building sand castles, seashell hunting and riding the waves at West Beach which is just minutes away. Nautical's unique location allows all to observe the coastal birds daily and witness migrating birds (from as far away as South America). The breezes, views, sounds of wave action, bird calls and Nautical's relaxed, coastal interior allow us to escape 'city life'. The 'kid in us' appreciates that Galveston's tourist attractions and restaurants are so nearby. We also enjoy watching the sunrises, sunsets, moonrises and stars from Nautical's porches!
What makes this house unique
UNIQUE NATURAL SETTING ON SECLUDED STREET: Bay front property with private pier and fishing lights, nearby public boat launch on our secluded street, and wetlands on the opposite side of the street. Even though its location feels secluded - Galveston's historic seawall is only 6 minutes away! SPORTSMAN'S PARADISE: Enjoy fishing, crabbing, boating or watching boats cruise the bay. If you kayak, bring it because the inlets along West Bay provide great fishing and calm wave/tidal currents for paddling your water toy!! Nautical's private pier is equipped with many cleats. Do not dock boats overnight due to active tide. INSPIRING SUNSETS & SUNRISES: Bring your camera because God's sunsets and sunrises can be spectacular! In the evening, the lights on the distant mainland, Causeway Bridge and Galveston Island nicely frame West Bay and create a beautiful skyline. From the East Porch and house, the rising moon is memorably huge and quick; Star gaze the constellations from the porches or pier because the stars don't have to compete against bright city lights. BEST BIRD WATCHING: Enjoy the daily bird migration between the federally protected bird sanctuary islands to the North and federally protected wetlands directly South of Nautical; daily you'll see Brown Pelicans, pink Roseate Spoonbills, Grey Blue Herons, Great White, Snowy and Cattle Egrets, various Terns, other Herons & the classic Laughing Sea Gulls. From Fall through Spring, birds migrate from as far away as South America. As our mantra says, 'It doesn't get any better than this!' ....
