Freeport vacation rentals

Beachfront serenity in Texas

Freeport sits near the mouth of the Brazos River as it spills into the Gulf of Mexico, boasting some of the smoothest, most sumptuous sand beaches on the Texan stretch of the Gulf Coast. It’s a great region for dolphin watching, deep sea fishing, or simply kicking back. Among the most picturesque Freeport vacation rentals are the wooden clapboard houses that sit on stilts over the beachfront canals, their wooden porches affording wonderful sea views. Set the steaks sizzling on the BBQ, pour yourself a sundowner, and sit back and enjoy the evening sun setting over the water.

Watery adventures on the Gulf Coast

If you’d like to try your hand at deep sea fishing, rent a private charter from Freeport or Surfside Beach. Or, if you’d prefer a more high-adrenaline approach, hop on a jet ski and plough out on the ocean surf or up the winding Brazos River. The Brazos is also a great spot for waterskiing and you can find boat operators to take you out on the river in Freeport. For a family-friendly adventure on the ocean waves, charter a boat for a dolphin watching expedition and spot these friendly creatures splashing in the turquoise waters alongside your boat.

Fun in the Lone Star sun

Freeport is perfect for a “get away from it all” beach escape. You can book a beachfront property for romantic views over the ocean, while keen anglers or sailors can choose from one of numerous canal-side Freeport vacation rentals. As well as direct access onto the water, many have their own private pool – a perfect treat after a day in the Texan sun. One of the sandy stretches closest to town, Bryan Beach, is ideal for relaxing families, and you can drive right onto the nearby Surfside Beach, which is known for its great fishing, not to mention the opportunities to surf, spot the local birds, and chow down on hot beach snacks.

Winter warmth in Freeport

Freeport enjoys the breezes from the Gulf in the summer, keeping it a little cooler than inland. That said, come the summer, temperatures can soar to sizzling highs – good news for beach lovers, though many visitors may prefer to visit during the spring and fall months, when things get pleasantly balmly. Even in the winter months, the temperature doesn’t usually fall too low, and you can take advantage of lower rates, making this a good time to book a Freeport vacation rental. What better way to escape the frosty weather elsewhere?

Discover the parks of Texas

A number of regional and national parks close to Freeport offer great opportunities for fishing, birdwatching, and discovering more about the local natural environment and wildlife. The Brazoria National Wildlife Refuge is located up the coast towards Galveston, and its sprawling wetlands, hiking trails, and colorful banks of wildflowers offer uniquely diverse opportunities for spotting local wildlife. Its companion refuges, San Bernard and Big Boggy, are similarly worth exploring, and if you’re lucky you might catch a glimpse of an alligator lazing in the Texan sun.
