About Kimberley Whitworth

We fell in love with the area because of it's proximity to Surfside and Galveston. After searching for 2 years we found the perfect lot and have just finished building 'our' dream getaway.

Kimberley Whitworth purchased this house in 2013

Why Kimberley Whitworth chose Freeport

Water Views everywhere you look, quiet beach, great fishing and a peaceful area in general. The subdivision, called Treasure Island, has a visible security person patrolling.

What makes this house unique

Exotic green granite in kitchen and baths, 4 new Samsung HDTV's, Smart TV, Direct TV Network, music, plenty of decks with cooling breezes and shade.

Love love love this house and it's location. I could sit on that patio all day and watch the waves roll in. It really is like having your private beach.

Great time

  • 5 of 5

This house provided fantastic amenities and comforts for our family's visit to the coast. The rooms were spacious with comfortable beds, and the split level design gave us all room to spread out. I would recommend staying at the flip flop beach house to anyone who wants a gulf coast getaway with great private beaches and a perfect large home to stay in!

Perfect Property!

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly what I wanted!! Right by the beach with a beautiful view!! The house was very clean, and nice, and provided almost everything. The decks on the house facing the water were awesome!! I loved that we were right at the beach, so we didn't have to load up all together as a group, didn't have to drive anywhere, and we could go back to the house easily if we needed a break from the sun. We will DEFINITELY be back!!

The Flip Flop House was awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this house. The owners have thought of everything to make their guests feel at home. The house was so clean! The kitchen is stocked with everything you need for food prep. The bedrooms are very comfy. The family room is great for hanging out together. The property manager was great and very easy to get in touch with. The beach is so close and easy to get to. We practically had the beach to ourselves! The drive into Galveston isn't bad. We went in several times to eat and hang out at The Strand. Would definitely stay here again!
