About the Property
2 bedroom, 1 bath oversized retreat sleeps 5 on the Tres Palacios Bay
Computer and smart-phone withdrawal is possible, but not required for tranquil living in this fishing village. Ideal location for writer or artist who prefers to work uninterrupted. Walk the sea wall for two miles or fish from the pier. Enjoy the sailors and shrimpers who come and go in the dazzling beautiful sunrises and sunsets. If you love birding, you will marvel at the largest number of species found anywhere in the U.S. A replica of the La Belle sailing ship discovered in the Matagorda Bay is just steps away in the marina. Just two blocks away is the museum with an interesting accumulation of Palacios treasures from years gone by. Dine on fresh seafood from our port or savor Mexican or Asian foods from local family owned restaurants. Without the pandemonium of big city distractions, a type of restful detoxification may occur and a peace you won't soon forget can set in. This oversized unit was the private residence of the previous owner and was designed for comfortable living for two people.

Palacios offers warm hospitality and some of the best water views on the Texas coast. Visitors will enjoy local shopping, great fishing, world-class birding, and a mile plus stroll along the seawall. Fresh coffee and a good book that can be found on Main Street help define the unhurried atmosphere in our 'City by the Sea'. Visit the City by the Sea Museum for a look back at a 1600's French explorer ship, the LaBelle. Some Palacios residents have built a 1/2 scale replica of this ship and it is docked at the South Bay Marina. Santa arrives in Palacios on the replica LaBelle each Christmas season. Santa by sea seems appropriate since the Port of Palacios is home to one of the largest shrimp fishing fleets on the Gulf Coast.
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: Chip and Carol Woolf are semi-retired
Why the Owner Chose Palacios, TX, USA:
Wanted to retire on the water and enjoy the southern breezes, gardening and slowed down lifestyle. The frequent rains and climate make just about everything grow into a jungle and I love that. Facing the bay with the occasional wind storm, thunder and lightening is exciting and makes me smile. We love our neighbors who have become part of our extended family. I can't imagine why more people have not found Palacios but glad we did. It was a glorious gift.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Enjoy the almost constant breeze coming in from the bay. The climate is great throughout the year and is enjoyed by winter Texans and Snowbirds escaping harsh conditions found further North in the winter months. Summers are for relaxing in the breezes without excessive heat
