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 Gulf Coast

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, Direct TV Network, music, plenty of decks with cooling breezes and shade.

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!

My only regret - I couldn't stay longer.

  • 5 of 5

This a lovely place to stay. its a few steps to the beach. You have a direct view of the beach and waves, not only from the porches but inside as well. So,for older children, you will only need to be with them for the fun, not safety.

It's well equipped, and unlike most rentals, many cooking supplies are provided. The beach extends west for a long way

The upper floor master can be a retreat from action So it's perfect for all ages on a family vacation.

Grand time with the grands

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Flip Flop house! It was nice being so close to the beach, which wasn't crowded at all. The views were very nice, as was the home. Everyone enjoyed themselves!

Great Property!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Flip Flop with another family of friends and we had a perfect time! We loved the ice maker - and made good use of it. AC was very strong too. The views were the best part as well as the sea breezes. We really liked that no cars accessed the beach, just golf carts. House is very clean and well maintained. The owners were very accommodating - thanks for a great break!
