We've enjoyed Tuck's Retreat for a number of years and our vacations never disappoint! Spending hours on the deck right over the water is truly a slice of paradise. Marc is a great host and we appreciate the opportunity to revisit each year.
We arrived to a beautiful and clean beach house and could not have asked for a better week. The kitchen was very well stocked and we had everything we needed. The deck actually sat over the water so you couldn't be any closer than that! There were times when it swayed slightly with the waves We spent hours just relaxing outside and were thrilled when 4-5 dolphins appeared maybe 100 yds out and played and splashed for almost an hour. The weather was perfect and it's close enough to Galveston to check out places to eat. My friend took walks and found lots of shells. We loved it and hope to be able to stay again. Thank you to the Tuckey's for an awesome and hassle-free vacation!!
Perfect location, time, accommodations, weather, fishing, and family time. WILL return.
We had a wonderful time. The house was clean and we did not miss anything. The house stands with his feet in the water - spectacular.
We have seen great sunrises.
The natural beach is only 100 meters away and you are almost alone. The weather was great. We will be back.

We really enjoyed our week at Tuck's Retreat! The house was the perfect size for our family of six. Kids had a blast finding shells (found three whole sand dollars) and hermit crabs on the beach next to the house while we made several meals out of the blue crabs we caught there too. We even had the privilege of being visited by a sea turtle one day. We won't forget this week anytime soon.
This unique property incorporates true ocean integration. It's amazing to feel parts of the house slightly sway with the ocean as well as hearing the waves from every room. Even the view off the large deck makes one feel like they're on a house boat. We and the neighbors caught several nice speckled trout and redfish from the adjacent beach.The very efficient house plan is set up well with a large kitchen shared with a spacious great room with nice leather furniture. We were surprised to see the satellite and DVD set up that worked well. The kitchen had a lot of pans for cooking and the sunsets were stunning! Would definitely stay here again!

World class sunrises over the panoramic ocean view are breathtaking!
San Luis Pass is famous for some of the best trout fishing along the Gulf Coast.
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.
