Why Jackie chose Texas Gulf Coast

We have had several homes in Galveston. We always buy front row beach houses because of the accessibility to the beach. The sound of the waves and the views are spectacular. This is by far our favorite home.

Beautiful location and great views with private beach access. Very close to my brother's house so it was perfect for a little vacation with extended family. Thanks for a great time!

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful spot. Easy driving distance to Galveston and yet a quiet stretch of beach. The house can easily take a number of people while offering privacy to individuals and the spot just couldn't get any more beautiful. There were so many wildflowers, little bunnies, seabirds. It was wonderful.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend and thoroughly enjoyed being just far enough away from the crowds to spread out and relax all weekend long, but able to get into town and do some exploring without spending too long in the car. The beach stayed empty enough to allow the 1 and 3 year olds with us room to roam, without having to hover over them -- which made our trip more relaxing than we could ever have anticipated. This house is the perfect get away for a multi family trip and is very accommodating to smaller children (toys, books, small table and chairs, etc.). We couldn't be more pleased with the home and are already looking forward to another visit! Even if you don't have kids - this spot is amazing for all! Trust me!

Return visit

  • 5 of 5

Have enjoyed this property several times over the past several years. This visit found the property in far superior shape as regards cleanliness. Also, we enjoyed the upgraded furniture. The location and views of the Gulf are superior, as is the privacy. Easy to work with the owner.
