March 2009 Guest Book Comment: March 13-20: My family and I had a great time at Tuck's Landing. The weather turned out perfect. The beach house is wonderful...nicely decorated and very clean. We will definitely want to come back again. :) The Galveston/Freeport area is shaping up nicely after IKE. We could tell many people are working hard to get things back to normal. Thanks Marc & Pam!

February 2009 Guest Book Comment: Gene and I would like to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay in San Luis Pass. Your home is lovely, it offers everything we could ever need and the beauty of nature outside of it is a true gift from God. Again, thank you very much for your courtesy and best wishes for this 2009 year!

June 2007 Guest Book Comment: We were able to make a last minute reservation the week of Memorial Day. And it was one of the best vacations we've had in years! Very relaxing, the house has anything and everything you'll need and it is much nicer than the typical vacation rental. The Tuckey's were so nice and accommodating and our family had the most wonderful time. This area is amazing for finding huge shells on the beach and for privacy! We had the beach to ourselves a couple of days. The front deck is great for drinking morning coffee and the view is fantastic! We'd return in a heartbeat and can't thank the Tuckey's enough for sharing their great beach house!

Thanks so much!

The Hartt Family (& Scooter too)

Very good for the price!

My wife and I were very pleased with Tuck's Landing! It was everything we could have hoped for on the budget we had! Very clean and well kept up property! Although not exactly on the beach, it still had some pretty awesome views from the porch. We would definately recommend this rental to anyone!

Direct ocean view, really comfortable house, exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 adults and 2 teens rented Tuck's Landing for a week in July. Check in instructions were very clearly communicated so it was really easy. The sandy swimming beach was just a block from the house and easily accessed. Little did we know that we would enjoy our house as much as we did. We had an unobstructed Gulf view, lots of shady, breezy deck time, big windows to see the water even when we were inside (pulled up the blinds), and entertainment in the water in the form of dolphins, jumping fish, boats, and fishermen. Although we had internet, TV, music, and a BluRay player, we felt no need for devices while we were there. The kitchen has everything you could imaging...well maybe not a margarita machine or Belgian wafflemaker, but everything else you could need for cooking your own vacation meals. The beds were comfortable and we slept cool with a well functioning A/C. One of our teens loved the downstairs shower with both hot and cold water. There were puzzles in the drawer along with a whole selection of DVDs and magazines to keep us entertained.

This paragraph will be used to draw attention to the very few things that we discovered that were a tiny bit disappointing, but certainly not anything major. It just helps sometimes to know some things ahead of time to be prepared. There's no ramp or outside elevator for those who have trouble climbing stairs although there are several in the neighborhood, so I think people are starting to realize that our population is aging. The 2nd little disappointment was that the middle drawer in the fridge falls out of its slots when there's any weight at all in it (we just took it out completely), and the cable to the BluRay player needs to be replaced. I communicated this to Marc, the owner, and no doubt he has already replaced it. I found him to be very responsive to any communication.

We had a great time and look forward to returning.

Amazing view with wave crashing therapy!

  • 5 of 5

Although not on the beach, with this property's huge front deck one feels like you're there. The crashing waves atmoslhere and beach experience is there. You have the large walking beach right behind you to the West and jetti/boulder rocks right in front (60-70 yards). The kitchen is ispacious and beds are comfortable. The house has room to accommodate many due to room full of bunk beds as well as a very comfortable den couch my 13 year old slept on. What we love about staying down at the pass is the privacy and less congestion offered versus on the sea wall. Marios pizza on Pirates beach isn't too far away for a run in/out of town. Moody's is about 25-30 away. We also loved the dining experience next to Gaidos-Nicks Kitchen. What a relaxing time!
