About Tim

We live in Galveston Texas, and have been looking for 'The Place' we want to retire, and finally found St George Island. It is never crowded, and the fishing is world class. We own Four homes here and will be on the island full time in just a couple years.

Tim purchased this house in 2013

Why Tim chose Gulf Beaches

We chose St George Island because it reminds us of 'Old Florida', no Walmarts or Home Depots, not even a traffic light. The fishing is outstanding and the check out the 2012 Sports Illustrated swim suit addition and you'll find some the best photos were taken here on St George Island.

What makes this house unique

Our home is a charming coastal getaway. The beach path is directly in front of the house. The views and the sounds of the ocean had us hooked at hello. We work hard to keep the place in top condition so we know you will have a Clean, well appointed home for your stay.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a wonderful experience at Going Coastal! Dolphins, stingrays, and starfish everyday! Perfect beach house to enjoy a relaxing vacation. We have begun planning our next stay at Going Coastal.

Going Coastal is a great property!

  • 5 of 5

This home is cozy and well furnished. We’ve been vacationing on SGI for many years but this is the first time we have rented a home that was’s a game changer! The owners, Tim and Julie, were in contact with us both before and after our stay. Already looking forward to next year!

Great Christmas Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was great, had everything we needed and was in great shape. My son and his wife along with the two grandkids met at the house and had a great Christmas. The beach was clean, the water was blue and the weather was great. We definitely recommend the house and will book it again.

Our Best Vacation Ever! Great House, Incredible Views!

  • 5 of 5

We just loved everything about Going Coastal. We were two couples meeting up for a week at the beach and this home was perfect. The views from the living room with the high ceilings and huge windows were incredible, and the deck was even better. The kitchen was well equipped, all the appliances worked well, the linens were clean and the beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed the location, close to shops and restaurants, but still very quite. We rented bikes and used them everyday. The beach was clean, and the water was warm and clear. The girls spent a lot of time on the beach, we boys did very well fishing in the bay. SGI is a gem, and this is a great house. Tim and Julie checked in on us when we arrived, and were very helpful answering questions and making us feel at home. Tim gave us some great fishing tips! We took kayaks to the state park and caught some very nice trout and redfish. We will be back again next summer, and hopefully for a week this winter as well!

Perfect beach house

  • 5 of 5

We have been to SGI 4 times and have now stayed at Going Coastal twice. It is the perfect beach house. The house has great amenities and gorgeous views. The beach is never crowded and it's so peaceful. We love it so much that we are discussing staying longer next year!!
