About Traci Jackson and Faith Marasco

We love the beach and have been coming here for years! We decided to build our beach home close to everything we love-fishing, paddle boarding, boating and the great outdoors. We hope that you enjoy our home away from home!

Traci Jackson and Faith Marasco purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Traci Jackson and Faith Marasco chose Gulf Coast

Short 500ft walk to the beach-street has direct beach access by vehicle or golf cart as well! This is our home away from home, so we have paid close attention to every detail. We have lots of 'extras' to make your stay easy and carefree! We hope that you enjoy it as much as we do. We also own two other rentals at Lake Travis in Austin. Please see our stellar reviews!

Awesome time at Pura Vida

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect stay at Pura Vida during the time of Jeep Go Topless event at the house. We had plenty of room for everyone since we only had seven including the dog of course. Which being dog friendly is awesome. Plus the fenced in back yard and giving the dog the ability access the top and porch and yard all enclosed made it easier for bathroom trips. The house is even better in person then the pictures show. The house really has everything you need for your stay....I mean everything. The amenities at the house really made it easy to stay a week. Only wish we stayed longer. Traci was wonderful to work with and made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. We only wish we rented the golf cart.

We will book this house again!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was very well equipped and clean. The beds were all comfortable as well. Everone enjoyed the hammocks, porch swing, and hammock chairs.

We hope to return in the future.

I have stayed in two properties from this owner and they were both GREAT!

  • 4 of 5

I loved staying here everything was so convenient. I loved that the communication was so quick. The owners were so nice and flexible. There were a few minor issues, but nothing that cant be fixed right away. I will be trying to stay again.
