About Ron Cauble

We are native Texans who have been fortunate enough to live in Canada, Africa, and various points in the United States. We love the mountains, the desert, the beach, and Central Texas.

Ron Cauble purchased this house in 2013

Why Ron Cauble chose Matagorda

Matagorda is a small town on the Texas gulf coast that we had been visiting for years. We were lucky enough to obtain a beach front lot with a magnificent view. Building the Matagorda beach house was a labor of love. We wanted a gathering place for family and friends.

What makes this house unique

There is an unobstructed view of the beach, a large wrap around deck, a wonderful crow's nest that lets you see for miles, and a kitchen large enough for several cooks.

Fabulous Experience at Pelican Point!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, perfectly proportioned house, with more bedroom space than we expected. Plenty of linens, and all the essentials. We will definitely book Pelican Point again, and our only reservation about giving this lovely place a great review is that we will have more competition now to book it. Five star home, location, and owner!! Ron was very responsive and went above and beyond every time--could not be happier!!

A great house, wonderful views and really nice beach. The house had everything you could want.

  • 5 of 5

This was a terrific place for us. It is a well designed and well appointed house and we had a very comfortable and relaxing visit. We walked to the beach by a little trail close to the house. We also took a short drive to the beach access to put in our kayak and save my mom the walk. We’ll be back!

Great house, views, and beach

  • 4 of 5

A nice, clean, well kept house. Lots of pots, pans, dishes, towels, etc.; everything we needed except a hair dryer. Large deck with great view of the beach and gulf. A trail over the dunes to the beach that is a little long and challenging for us older visitors. The long stairs are also a bit of a challenge to us and our 13 yo dog.

Note that the WiFi info in Ron’s emails was incorrect but the new info is in a notebook in the house. The network access is really slow, but works for email if not any big attachments. There is a Dish DVR with many premium channels available.

We had an issue with the lights on the stairs when taking our dog out at night. The switches in the house did not work until we discovered a switch at the bottom of the stairs that must be flipped first.

Our first trip to Matagorda and we liked it. We went to Spoonbills and Poco Playa, and actually preferred the later.

Ron is a pleasure to work with and very accommodating, we will be back often!

Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

This beach house has everything you need. The kitchen is well stocked. The views from the deck are spectacular. The surf fishing directly in front of the beach house was quite productive. There really is no walkable access/path from the house directly to the beach. You need to plan to drive onto the beach via the nearby beach access. We have a 2WD SUV and had virtually no trouble driving on the sand. Our first visit to Matagorda Beach. We will be back!
