This is the best spot on the island

  • 4 of 5

Marc and Pamela: Enjoyed our stay as always. This being our 5th time at the retreat we've came to know some of the permanent residents. Everyone is so friendly. It's so relaxing here. We most love our walks on the beach, always looking for a sand dollar or two. I know we'll be back.

Lovely place. Unbelievable bird watching, moonrise, sunrise.

  • 5 of 5

On the water with crashing waves below the deck...just what we love. Woke up to amazing sunrises with birds and breakers. Mornings spent gathering shells that can't be found on the busy public beaches near town. Left us feeling recharged. Perfect place to get away from the crowds but less than half an hour away if you want a day of shopping or a night out in Galveston.

Perfect private get-away!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was exactly as it was represented on the website, well maintained, and clean. The house is in the perfect location for enjoying the view and the sound of the waves at all times. It's a quiet neighborhood, and includes easy access to the huge sandy beach which was never crowded during my stay. The little pocket beach was a great place to sit in the surf and let my dog play in the water. I had some trouble getting into the house (purely due to my own mistake) and Marc was extremely gracious, immediately responded, and got me inside within five minutes. I'd love to go back and highly recommend it!

Beautiful Beaches...Relaxing Paradise

  • 5 of 5

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.

A Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

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!!

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!
