About Sheri & Ben

We currently live in Bryan/College Station, Tx. home of Texas A&M University & The George Bush Library. I am a licensed REALTOR. I sell single family residential, 2nd homes and investment properties. I own and manage A+ Leasing & Management. We love our home in Bryan / College Station and use our home as a Game Day Weekend Rental in College Station, Texas. So if you LOVE college football and want to watch the Aggies play; give us a call about our weekend rates during football season.

Sheri & Ben purchased this house in 2015

Why Sheri & Ben chose Gulf Coast

Ben & I discovered the little town of San Leon while looking for a place to do a little kayak fishing. We wanted a second home that offered salt water fishing. A retreat that was just a couple of hours away and maybe a place to retire to in a few years. Trying some of the local eateries and talking to the people in the area we felt right at home. There are marinas, boat ramps, public piers , great fishing and some larger attractions like Kemah Board Walk, NASA, Schlitterbaun Water Park, Galveston Beach & Sea Wall. So whether you want a quiet week with nightly walks, coffee on the balcony looking out at the bay or up early in the morning fishing or boating; Sunny San Leon has it all.

What makes this house unique

Come on in and kick your shoes off. Pull out the grill and barbeque or walk down to Top Water Grille have dinner and watch the boaters come in. Are you an early riser? Enjoy coffee on the upper deck while watching the pelicans fly by or maybe a cruise ship off in the distance. Porch swings, hammocks, shady covered patio plus all the comforts of home are here with a full kitchen, comfy bedding, a fenced yard and a garage. San Leon is a working community and a sportsman dream if you like salt water fishing, boating or just love the coastal views.

Lovely place with a view of the bay to enjoy watching the sunrise every morning from the top deck

  • 5 of 5

We were happy to find that this property could house a good number of our family gathering. We had a shrimp and fish fry on the downstairs patio. Everyone felt like this was a good space offering plenty of room for all. The kids enjoyed the nice lawn space playing catch football and running around. One family member even caught a keeper redfish right down the street. The location is also good for proximity to Galveston, NASA, Kemah boardwalk, Texas City Dike and so on. We enjoyed it and will be back when visiting the area again.

Beautiful home in quiet area

  • 5 of 5

The home was located in a quiet area with views of the water and a constant breeze. All items were as described by the owners and the check-in process was smooth and easy. My only regret was not spending more time in the home.

The property is fantastic. You will not have any regrets in renting this bay house!!

  • 4 of 5

The pics don't do the house justice! The house is small but immaculate and very well stocked. We rent a beach house every summer and I have never seen a kitchen have everything you could possibly need, even down to spices and other essentials that you might forget to bring. The outdoor spaces are amazing. I spent alot of time on that swing on the upper deck. Sheri always answered our questions promptly and was very courteous. Definitely recommend this house.

Sunny San Leon

  • 3 of 5

We had a fun time with kids and grandkids and were in close proximity of the rest of our extended family just down the street. Accommodations were mostly outstanding. The house is kept very clean and tidy. The only negative would be the downstairs area which was filled with such a strong mold and mildew smell that it was almost unbearable. We felt bad for our kids and their kids who had to sleep down there. The half bath in the garage was too hot to use (no a.c. In there). Other than that, it worked great.

Owner's Response: Beth, Thank you for taking the time to post a review. I am glad your family had a great visit. The downstairs room can tend to have a musky smell when not used or closed up for several days without the air being turned on. Unfortunately coastal conditions, humidity & 100* weather can cause a damp condition & a musky smell. I guess my suggestion about airing it out for the day when you were at Kemah for the day didn't help. Our guest comfort is of 100% importance to us. We take your comments as helpful criticism and will strive to improve our home for future guest.

Comfortable, Clean, Perfect Family Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

By far, the CLEANEST vacation rental we've ever stayed in! So appreciative of that! Thank you Sherri and Ben for sharing your lovely home with my family! It was perfect!

Plenty of room for our group of seven, which included three young children.

The yard is completely fenced in, so the kids can run and play for hours in the evening, and adults can sit back and relax--stress free! Lots of outdoor seating, upstairs and downstairs. The kids LOVED the downstairs bonus room. They thought it was "way cool" to have their own "secret" room. They conked out so hard at the end of every evening that they didn't realize an adult slept down there with them every night :)

The Kemah Boardwalk is 20 minutes away. We spent a day at the boardwalk. My toddler rode the train 1,000,000 times, and I thought I might die on the Boardwalk Bullet! We had lunch at Saltgrass Steakhouse--not bad food for a chain. We spent Independence Day at NASA. Such a great way to celebrate American Ingenuity and GREATNESS!! You MUST take your children there. You can walk inside a real space shuttle and take various tram rides (included in your entry ticket) to see the various facilities where real professionals work and train. Very cool!

Favorite part of every evening was watching the fireworks form the upstairs balcony. They were all around us and at a perfect distance--not too loud! Neighbors rode around in golf carts adorned in red, white, and blue streamers and American flags. It was a great 4th of July weekend!

****FYI, if you have small children, note that there are two stairwells off the balcony. You'll want to baby/toddler proof those some kind of way.

Extreme clean and cute!

  • 4 of 5

This place was such a great choice compared to the hotel where the rest of our family stayed. We were so comfortable in this clean and cute home. We especially enjoyed sitting outside in the evenings on the deck with the breeze coming off the water. We did not use the bonus room on the ground level that is separate from the house upstairs.
