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!

Very good for the price!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Great Place

  • 4 of 5

All in all a great place to stay. The only problem we really had was that the pictures representing the beach right outside our door were actually a paved road and then a wall of rocks built up, no beach/sand at all. That was the main reason we chose this place so was a little disappointing. Marc was very easy to work with & responded quickly to any emails/phone calls we made. Will definitely keep for possible future rentals.

Love Tucks Landing

  • 5 of 5

We have been enjoying Tucks Landing now for over 8 years and every year we are not disappointed. The house is always clean and offers all the amenities you need. It is a very short walk to the best beach and has an amazing view of the ocean from the deck - where you can watch sunrises and enjoy your coffee

Marc Tuckey is great to work with and is always available for questions or concerns.

Our dogs are always welcome at Tucks Landing - as Marc understands that they are family too

Thanks Marc for sharing and see you next year, same time same place

Perfect Getaway to the ocean

  • 5 of 5

Tuck's Landing was perfect for us. The accommodations were quite comfy and the home felt roomy and welcoming. We LOVED sitting on the deck and enjoying the crashing waves and ocean breezes.

Great cabin with oceanfront views in a nice neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Marc has a few properties in the same neighborhood. This is the second of his cabins we've stayed in. Marc does a great job of uncluttered decorating, good solid clean comfortable furniture, tile/laminated throughout. All appliances in good working order; AC was nice and cold. Adequately equipped kitchen. Good TV, satellite service, and decent wifi. Two adult bedrooms with comfortable beds and ceiling fans. 3rd bunk room is pretty tight and beds are really only suitable for kids or maybe young adults. Picnic table downstairs and an outdoor shower with hot/cold water was a bonus.

Nice covered deck with totally unobstructed view across an empty lot to the gulf. There is no beach but a low use road which provides access to a few cabins, some boulders, and then the ocean. You can balance precariously on top of the rocks and fish. I mostly caught whiting or mini hardhead bait stealers bottom fishing with dead shrimp, although I did catch a small flounder with plastic.

Swim beach is a short walk down the street. We loaded the truck with beach and fishing gear and parked right by the beach entrance then hand-carried a short distance. There's a small section of relatively quiet beach used mainly by the neighborhood which is closed to automobile traffic. Mostly families, some who leave their canopies up overnight and return the next day, but not very crowded so always easy to find a good spot. We had some good luck surf fishing. Fish the first gut all the way to the left up against the peninsula with the large cabin. Caught some nice trout including 3 over 18".

There is a bait shop with some food/drink items just outside the neighborhood. You have to drive about 25 minutes or so to Surfside/Freeport for a local grocery store and all the way to Galveston or Lake Jackson for an HEB or Kroger.

Lastly, Marc allows family pets for a reasonable fee. As I mentioned, floors are easy to keep clean from dander and there are outside hose bibs downstairs and upstairs on the deck to clean the paws. We walked the dogs through the neighborhood and on the beach several times during the day and even late at night. Just watch out for sticker burrs in some of the grassy areas and don't forget to keep your poop bags handy.

The 12 mile long beach that connects San Luis Pass and Surfside is perfect for a picnic, kite-flying and building castles in the sand. Surfing, swimming, shelling and sunbathing are just a few of the activities for you to enjoy.

Also located on The Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail, (upper Texas Coast region) ~ San Luis Pass is rated one of the top ten birding areas. Grab your binoculars - or use ours to sit back and watch the dolphins play right off our deck.
