Property description

Stay awhile at this "homey" and very comfortable 2/2 directly on the canal... It doesn't get any better than this! You are only 1 mile from your own "semi" private Sargent Beach. Located conveniently off of FM457, only 1/2 mile from boat launch to the Intercostal Waterway, 1 mile directly south to the beach and views from the front porch of the beautiful San Barnard Wildlife Refuge. Sleeps up to 6 : one King, one Full, one twin pullout and one twin fold away bed and several blow up mattresses for your convenience!

My husband and I are the actual owners of this property so you will be making all arrangements through us and not a Management Company like other rentals in the Sargent area. We like to give our renters a memorable and personal experience!

This is a great place for you and your family or fishing friends for a fun get together. Direct TV in all rooms and a handicap ramp in the garage. Where else can you get handicap accessibility at the beach?

Smoke free please and pet friendly but only well-mannered pets. Please do NOT allow your pet to be locked in the bedroom at anytime. Make sure your pet is up to date on all shots and flea prevention meds. This is for the cleanliness for future guests as well as the health and well being for your pet.

Please see Rules part for details in your stay.

Only the allotted number of guests should stay on property. If you have someone come visit they may stay for the day but not overnight.
Leasee is responsible for all guests actions and any damages caused. Deposit can be forfeited if max number of guests is broken.
Please do not use excessive water. You will be charged back overage of water usage if it is more than the normal usage.
Please do not run the AC more than 20-25* below the hottest temp of the day. AC can and will freeze up.
Excessive trash must be hauled away by the guest. Do not leave large or bulky items because trash man will not pick up. Normal trash would be 2-3 bags per week of stay. If there seems to be excessive trash, you will be charged back accordingly.

  • Pets Considered:

    Please watch your pets carefully and do not leave them unattended. Please treat my home as you would your own. I would like to keep allowing pets but I do not like having damage to our home. Please do not allow them on the bed and If possible, bring a crate to crate your dog when you are going to be away from the home for any length of time. Our furry friends tend to be anxious not only in a new home but when left alone at a new home and can be destructive. Please also pick up after your pets in the yard and make sure they do not get out of the gate. It's important to watch them at ALL times! I do require that your dog be up to date on flea, mite and tick prevention. Because of the mosquitos that love the salt water marshes it would be advantageous to you to be up to date on their heart worm medicine as well....moreless

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We have been coming to Sargent, Texas for years now for goose hunting, duck hunting and fishing. We love the quiet area compared to the heavy traffic of Surfside and Galveston . If you are looking for craziness, then Sargent Beach is not the place for you! It's a laid back community with unspoiled beaches where you can drive your truck right upon the beach and fish from your own personal spot! It is a fun, quiet time for lots of fun no matter the time of the year and the ability to become reconnected with the family.

Why the Owner Chose Sargent, TX, USA:
We loved this property from the get-go. Although it isn't a typical house on stilts that you normally see beach side, we thought this was a warm, fun, quaint house and wanted to share it with other people when we were not there. You can take in the beautiful sunsets from the back porch and crab at night directly off the piers. Go birding, fishing or just hang out at the beach during the day. Directly off the main road and only a mile from the drawbridge and onto your own semi-private beach!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We were hoping to be able to accommodate families that were in need of accessibility! Very few homes in the area are rented with a handicap accessible ramp directly up to the home. People that are bound to a wheelchair love to vacation as well and we wanted to make your time at our place memorable.
