About Toni Robertson

We bought the Banana Cabana to serve as our home away from home while living overseas in 2005. Now, we are living in the United States and the house is available more for vacationers.

Toni Robertson purchased this house in 2005

Why Toni Robertson chose Texas Gulf Coast

Since the Banana Cabana has been my home away from home for years, it is extremely well stocked -- much more than most rentals you will ever come across. When I am staying there, I entertain friends often, so you will find extras such as pretty pewter serving pieces, both Keurig AND Conventional Coffee Makers, Mixer, Large Electric Griddle for pancakes, etc., 20+ pieces of brightly-colored cast-iron outdoor furniture, gas grill (xtra propane bottle) and conventional BBQ grill, Cuisinart Food Processor, Blender...see the full list on the details page.

What makes this house unique

Although only 3/10 mile (5-min walk) from the beach, the Banana Cabana is 1/2 blk from the bay (nice view from back deck!). We are located on a quiet dead-end street - perfect for families with children. Our pool & back yard face the south, so you have a full day of warm sunshine as well as a large covered area.
