Can't Find a More Beautiful Location!

  • 5 of 5

As always, Tuck's Retreat does not disappoint! Marc and Pam maintain the home well with up-dates every season. This year, they made several additions such as new appliances, furniture, and a wonderful staircase with an extra landing since the house sits high above the water. To the pocket beach adjacent to the house, God added a beautiful, pristine beach that you can stroll all the way to the bridge. And of course, His sunrises are without a doubt some of the best on this planet! Each year, we hate to leave and start counting the weeks until returning to our peaceful and happy ocean respite. Thanks again, Marc and Pam, for being our vacation partners - we appreciate the opportunity to share Retreat.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed a week, mostly came to fish and relax. Place is tastefully furnished, everything in good working order. The surf was rough and the wind got pretty intense a couple of afternoons and evenings. Not conducive to great fishing, but we enjoyed fishing off the deck and walking in the surf below. Caught a lot of sand trout, a few sheepshead and one undersized redfish. Had a great time, hope to come back next year. We have now stayed in all three Tuck properties.

Never disappointed here

  • 5 of 5

We are never disappointed with Tuck's Retreat. We have been coming for years and will chose this location until the day we die. The deck is RIGHT on the water and wildlife is everywhere. Cranes, dolphins, pelicans and more. The host is accommodating and has thought of everything... and VRBO makes it so easy. It's just a short drive to town, but with this kind of view... why would you go?! Every morning you can sit on the deck and watch the sun rise. Breakfast and a show... every single day. Thanks Tuck's Retreat! Youda best!! P. Warmack, Katy, Texas

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Tuck's Retreat! The beach below was great for wading, looking for shells, and relaxing. We rented a golf cart to go back and forth to the bigger beach area, but walking it only took us about 5 minutes. Beaches were not crowded at all. Gas grill made cooking easy and the kitchen had any and all utensils we needed. Fishing off the front deck was great!

World class sunrises over the panoramic ocean view are breathtaking!

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.

You will love your escape to Tuck's Retreat!
