San Luis Pass House Rental Photos and Description
House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)
Picture your dream beach house retreat: A welcoming traditional design with a wide front porch tucked under the roof. A swing and a hammock for leisurely watching the surf & boat fishermen, birds and porpoises, and a view that extends forever – this is why we come to the beach.
Our 2-story home sits high on a large corner lot with water views from every window. The furnishings are comfortable and casual. On the first floor are the Dining and Living Room (with HDTV), Kitchen, Master Bedroom and Bathroom, Laundry and Half-Bath all done in tropical prints.
The Master Bedroom has a large picture window to the water and French doors to the porch. The Master Bathroom has double sinks, a Whirlpool Tub and separate shower.
At the top of the stairs to the second floor, is a landing that splits off to the other two Bedrooms and a Full Bath. To the left is the Aquarium room. Aqua-green walls adorned with a swarm of tropical fish surround a king bed, a twin bed, and a cozy reading nook. This colorful room is a favorite of everyone – until they go across the hall to the Lighthouse room. The main feature in this large bedroom is a queen bed, at floor level, tucked into a private little alcove with its own porthole window to the water. It’s the perfect spot for an afternoon nap. Another queen and a twin bed complete the sleeping accommodations for this unique bedroom.
Treasure Island at San Luis Pass is a birding, fishing, and shelling paradise. Nowhere else can you find such a variety of activities to please everyone. After a fun day in Galveston at Schlitterbahn or Moody Gardens, spend the evening on the porch watching the sunset. Or, surf-fish and walk back to clean your catch at our private fish cleaning station. Mornings are the best time to walk along the miles of remote beaches while watching flocks of Pelicans and Roseate Spoonbills and collecting the best shells on the Texas coast. You can also rent a kayak, schedule a wildlife tour, or hire a guide for bay or offshore fishing.

About Carol Duncan
On one of our first dates, Bill took me to Galveston to show me the lot he had just purchased. Shortly thereafter, he built his first beach house. A few months later, we married in Las Vegas and spent our honeymoon in that little beach house. That was over twenty years ago. We've had three more beach houses since then, and each one a little closer to the water.
It's a wonderful place for creating lasting memories with our families, especially our grandchildren. When people ask us if we are afraid our home will be destroyed by a hurricane, I tell them 'It (a hurricane) could take our home, but not our memories.'
The lure of the water, sand and salt air has an emotional pull just as strong as those hurricane force winds.
Carol Duncan purchased this house in 2006
Why Carol Duncan chose San Luis Pass
San Luis Pass was our purchase choice because it is such a draw for nature lovers. It is remote with wide beaches, and a varied and abundant bird population. Also, this area has some of the best fishing along the Texas coast.
We have been in the resort rental business for 10 years, and this is our 7th rental season in this home. As realtors, we understand the importance of 'selling' a home to the public. Although this home sells itself, we insist on a high level of maintenance perfection. I promise you will not be disappointed.
What makes this house unique
While sitting on the porch, we can see porpoise feeding just a few yards out in front of our home.
Guestbook comments from the owner
The Fitzsimmons from New Braunfels, Texas sent this letter after their May '08 weekend.
"Thank you again for providing such a wonderful getaway experience for my family.... Everyone was so pleased and had nice things to say the entire time we were there. From the lovely home to the more personal touches like Q-Tips and a variety of cooking spices. We were made to feel comfortable and welcome from the moment we stepped through the door! P.S. We will be back."
