Overview

Texas House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 10-12

In the heart of Treasure Island in San Luis Pass, is Tuck's Pointe. Tuck's Pointe is a welcoming and comfortable 1300 square foot beach accessible home with 3 bedrooms, and 2 baths and the beautiful Gulf of Mexico at its doorstep. Relax in this waterfront treasure with vaulted ceilings and abundant windows overlooking incredibly breathtaking and unobstructed panoramic views.

After a fun filled day, retreat to Tuck's Pointe to unwind in the large living room with its big screen TV. or enjoy scenic waterfront dining at the table. Catch an amazing sunrise on the deck with your first cup of coffee, and watch for dolphins playing close to the house. Host a Barbecue on the lower deck while you stand at the waters edge, and gather around the picnic table or go upstairs the deck to enjoy your meal.

San Luis Pass in Treasure Island is a small, quiet family oriented neighborhood. It has the beaches, fishing, and reduced traffic of Surfside, but is ten miles closer to Galveston.

Note, several winter storms have washed the beach directly in front of the home away, however; there is beach about 150 feet from the home.

Great family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Brought my wife and two young kids down for a weekend away. House is comfortable, surprisingly well furnished and very clean. Owner very responsive via text. Great place would recommend highly and will be back.

Top 5 Highlights:

5. Area under house perfect spot for wind-protected bbq cooking.

4. Two beaches both less than 5 minute drive away, and additional beach 5 minute walk away. Very small mini beach two houses down that we visited briefly once - not sure who owns - didn't feel unwelcome.

3. Bait store super close, friendly and helpful. Bring your own rods.

2. Fishing from the deck - if you focus on the ocean, it's like the house floating in the middle of it.

1. OUTDOOR SHOWER - The highlight of my trip. Found myself showering 3-4 times/day just for fun. Wanted to cut a small window so I could see the ocean, but wasn't sure owner would appreciate it. Don't know why anyone would shower inside. Best shower experience in my life. Worth the cost of the whole trip.

Top 1 Lowlight:

1. Visited three weeks ago and I haven't showered since. Nothing will ever live up.

We had a wonderfult stay here!

  • 5 of 5

House was lovely with everything you needed and all in good condition. Beds were super soft and comfy. The view was amazing, we loved to sit out on the porch with our coffee in the morning and enjoy the peacefulness of it all. The water was high from the recent rains so there wasn't that sandy area shown in the pictures but there is a wonderful beach area with-in walking distance. The beach was clean and never crowded, with a great shell selection! Galveston was a close drive for more activities for the kids and great selection of local shops and restaurants!

Perfect vacation right on the water!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful accommodations, and view and breeze of the Gulf! Sunrise was phenomenal! We caught tons of fish right off the deck! All the comforts of home are already there. We will definitely be back soon!

Interior immaculate, great location!

  • 4 of 5

The house was immaculate and we were able to fish right off the back deck. On another note, the pictures on the advertisement were a tad misleading, as it appeared the house was right next to the small sandy beach, which is a couple rentals down. When you go GPS the address, it doesn't pull the correct house, it pulls a larger tan rental about 3 houses down. For future renters, bring lots of bug spray, the Mosquitos are small birds. The loft (being 4' tall at the center) in the pictures is inaccessible unless you are 8' tall. When we contacted the owner on a small issue, he was able to correct the problem by the following night. The spotlight for night fishing was not functioning so take note.

Can't wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home with a truly beachfront location. You can't get any closer to the water than this. We all loved fishing from the deck, and watching the dolphins swim by.

The grandkids loved the beach. It was quiet and clean. You feel like you have your own personal beach. Either bring your own golf cart or rent one nearby, load up and go as far down the beach as you like. You will not find any crowds, just a few friendly groups, here and there.

The Tuckey's are responsive and easy to reach with any questions, or concerns. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us. We are hoping to return again soon.
