Overview

About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, Sleeps 10

This spacious 5 bedroom house comfortably sleeps 10. This secluded beauty is one of two houses located on a very large and uniquely private piece of land, located between Bermuda Beach and Pirate's Beach. Only the grass in the yard and the dunes separate you from the beach. With a deck that is so massive it is almost as big as the house (I'm not kidding) you will have plenty of room to lounge around and take in the sun and warm ocean breezes. There is an out door shower with hot and cold water--feels good after a sandy day at the beach. There are 2 hammocks for those who may want to relax and read or grab a nap. You are only minutes away from the new Schlitterbahn Water Park, Moody Gardens and the Galveston Strand. We would like to share our home with caring, thoughtful friends and families. Sorry, we are unable to accommodate events, parties, weddings, and receptions. MAXIMUM NUMBER OF GUESTS IS TEN

The minimum age for rental is 25 years.

About Linda

I am retired from an Emergency Department, where I worked for 30 years, as a Registered Nurse. My children always loved the beach, so I built this house to be enjoyed by them, their husbands and my grandchildren. We rent the house when we aren't using it. Why leave our home and such a beautiful view go to waste, when it can be enjoyed by another family or small group?

Linda purchased this house in 2006

Why Linda chose Texas Gulf Coast

"Ocean's Twelve" is very private. There is a clear view of the beach and the waves out the large front windows and from the giant deck. We try to keep the interior upscale with a relaxing feeling.

What makes this house unique

There is a swing and a hammock on the ground floor, and a hammock on the main deck. Small riding toys are there for the children to enjoy. You can have meals on either of the picnic tables on the ground floor or the round dinner table on the main deck. There is plenty of seating for those who want to sit on the deck and take the sun or relax in the hammock on the shady side of the deck.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful house with gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for our family vacation! The house was amazing with plenty of space for everyone. It had everything we could possible need. The location was great! It was away from the tourist crowd but still easy accessible to everything. The view of the beach was amazing and an easy walk from the house. We almost had the beach all to ourselves during our stay. The owner, Linda was great! She was prompt with any calls or concerns that we had. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a vacation home rental! Our family had a wonderful time here and made memories that will last a lifetime.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Ocean's Twelve! The house had everything we needed for a very relaxing and comfortable vacation. Linda, the owner could not have been nicer and accommodating! The sound of the ocean and the view of the sunrise from the spacious deck were amazing!

Lovely house

  • 4 of 5

House was great, loved the huge deck! Kitchen had everything u could possibly need and the owner was easy to work, throughly enjoyed our stay. The only thing I would change is maybe put some stepping stones or pathway to the walkway over the dunes because of how bad the grass burs were. But overall loved this house and would definitely stay again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review! In way of explanation of not having stepping stones or a pathway to the walkway over the dunes. I used to have a cleared path to the walkway BUT when Ike came through, he dug a trench about 4 foot deep from the dunes up to my house----and kept going to take away the downstairs area. You know, "path of least resistance". I'm sure my downstairs would have been damaged anyway but why open a clear path to aid in the destruction? The burrs are there only part of the year but when they are you definitely need foot covering. Trying to work with Mother Nature :-)

Beautiful! Great Location, spacious and very clean

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Ocean's Twelve. The entire house was very clean and well stocked with everything you'd need for a relaxing, wonderful family getaway. I loved that there were no other buildings to our east. We had an unobstructed view of the beach and of the sunrise in the morning. The deck, including the hammock!, were so relaxing. The pergola on the deck provided perfect shade to enjoy meals outside. Plenty of beach supplies. We had the beach almost to ourselves, it was wonderful. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your glowing review. The open acreage to the East, and clear view of the Gulf. and private-feeling of the beach, are a few of our favorite things about "Ocean's Twelve". We try to anticipate what our guests will need to make their stay relaxing and carefree. We would love to have you return for a stay. Give us a call anytime!
