'AN ARTIST'S VIEW' - LUXURY HOUSE DIRECTLY ON THE BEACH!

San Luis Pass House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-14)

Step away from stress and time and into 'An Artist's View'. Our beautiful beachfront home guides you into relaxation, and rewards you with opportunities for offshore fishing, swimming, beaching, reading, kayaking, bird watching, napping on our beautiful decks or simply breathing. Sink into our living room furniture, enjoy the glow of the fireplace and reacquaint yourself with loved ones. An Artist's View was designed to provide separate 'play areas' for conversation and communing but all open to one another. Upstairs you may enjoy playing a game or two of pool on our regulation size pool table or watch a movie on the 46' HD TV with DVD player. For conventional entertainment you will find Galveston conveniently within 20 minutes. Whether you are inside or out, An Artist's View will feed your soul and deliver the vacation you deserve.

'An Artist's View' is built remotely on beautiful, sandy beach. Both upper and lower decks look out over dunes, rolling surf and 88 acres of unspoiled, nature-filled wetlands perfect for butterfly counting or bird watching where Brown Pelican's and others tour daily. The beach is quiet and allows for walks on uninterrupted sand for miles. Don't forget to bring a basket for the variety of shells you'll want to add to your collection. From our decks you can view the Bay behind us as well as crashing surf in front. Enjoy a happy hour or two on the upper deck and experience the amazing sunsets you'll find in late afternoon. Texas skies have never been bigger.

We hope you enjoy the natural environment that surrounds our home! Galveston is a short twenty minutes away.

About Walter P Wallace & Amanda E Wallace

This house is our baby! We named it quite appropriately 'An Artist's View' because of the spirit that awakens in you as you stay here. We built this house near Galveston to serve the concepts of luxury, comfort and community. Life pulls us in so many ways, how often do we get to play with, speak to and enjoy our families. We have spent many fabulous vacations with family, friends and family and friends. Watching the waves roll in and out sets our timing to a slower pace and we have found great peace, solitude and togetherness on our beautiful beach. We found Treasure Isle through renting vacation homes for Thanksgiving break. We were sold and hope you find peace and your perfect vacation in our home, 'An Artist's View'.

Walter P Wallace & Amanda E Wallace purchased this house in 2007

Why Walter P Wallace & Amanda E Wallace chose San Luis Pass

Our family had been vacationing in Treasure Isle for 7 years before we came across the opportunity to build our beach house 'An Artist's View'.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy golf at Galveston Country Club and can arrange access for our renters. Our favorite time is early morning when we walk onto the beach before sunrise. Cast your pole in the ocean and sit down waiting to see what happens first...the sunrise or getting a hit from a red fish or trout.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Walter,







Sorry about this late thank you but I am sure you understand no vacation goes unpunished at work.



Kay and I wanted to take a minute to tell you how much we and our family enjoyed your house. We have rented houses on the beach in Galveston six or seven years now and we have always had a great time but this time everyone was in agreement your house made it extra special. The big porch allowed us to all congregate in the evenings and just sit and talk and laugh. The big kitchen with the family sized dinning table allowed us to share several meals both preparing and eating.



Of course everyone enjoyed the beach and after the kids understood the importance of the dunes they took great pride in pointing out to offenders that they should not walk thru them.



From my perspective I was impressed they the care you obviously give your house. Beyond the little thing I am sure cannot be avoided with a rental house on the beach everything was in great shape the windows were clean and clear, the siding was fresh and well kept.



We did have one question, what are the yellow strips on the porch post all about. We had great fun speculating in the evening but now that we are home we still wonder.



Thanks again for a great week, as Kay and I age and our kids and grandchildren get older these memories will be precious and our week at your house will be right there with the best.

Wonderful Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5
The house was just as described. I really enjoyed our stay. It allowed us to enjoy the beauty of the ocean without leaving the comfort of home. The house was nicely decorated and I don't have a bad thing to stay. I recommend this place and cant wait to return.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful home, in a nice and quiet location. Area is far enough away from the crowds at Galveston but just a short drive away. The house is in great shape with lots of activities for older and younger kids to play with when you are not at the beach. The unrestricted views from both decks are amazing and the sound of the ocean seems as though the waves are right at your feet. Could not have asked for more.

Owner's Response: Paul, we are so pleased you enjoyed the quiet tranquility of staying at "An Artist's View". With the coming fall months those mornings start to cool off and make the experience even more special. We hope to see you back next year.

Views like no other!

  • 5 of 5
An Artist's View was the perfect setting to celebrate my mother in law's 50th birthday. Our group of 14 included ages 88 to 3, and all had a wonderful time. The living area is open with beautiful views of the dunes and ocean. The walk-over is close by, and the beach was somewhat private. Shells and sand dollars collected! The decor and amenities in the house were perfect for us, and we can not wait to book another getaway at the Artist's View. Walter, the owner is wonderful and extremely helpful to answer all of our questions.

good getaway house but far from everything

  • 4 of 5
we stayed at the house in November and had our wedding here. the house is nice but the housekeeper could learn to clean better. it feels like all the residents who live around there full time are always spying on you and that was really annoying. the kitchen was stocked with cooking things but the oven was difficult to work and had knobs missing. theres a toll bridge right by the house so everytime u wanna go back to Galveston u hafta pay a toll and that sucked. huge deck with great views, plenty of space in the house, nice big bathrooms and lots of big windows. right on the beach and perfect for relaxing :) they did let us bring our dogs for an extra fee as long as there wasn't extra pet hair to clean up so that was nice

Owner's Response: We enjoy the fact that we have a private beach and are away from the beaten path. The toll bridge just adds to the remoteness. We do have the one dial on the oven ordered from the manufacturer. We are glad you chose our house to celebrate your wedding.

BEAUTIFUL!

  • 5 of 5
My family of four joined two other families for Labor Day weekend, for a total of 6 adults and 6 kids aging in range from 7-15. We were all very surprised at how spacious this house was and its proximity to the beach was perfect. The view is phenomenal with unobstructed views of the beach as far as the eye can see. The outside decks and kitchen were where we spent most of our time and we were comfortable in both spaces The owners truly thought of everything with the board games, pool table, and beach toys for the kids. We definitely plan to return next summer - this was the most relaxing, enjoyable vacation we've had.

Our home is on a very remote beach. Both decks are over the sand dunes looking out over the surf. The beach is quiet and remote and allows for walks on uninterrupted sand for miles. From our decks you can view the Bay behind us as well as the crashing surf in front. There are 88 acres of unspoiled wetlands between your ocean view and Bay view. Pelicans and other birds fly directly by the house on their way to their feeding areas. We hope you enjoy the natural environment that surrounds our home!
