We weekend at the beach, and we think this area is the best part of the Texas Gulf Coast. The house is located on a somewhat rural beach, surrounded by 1 acre of natural beauty.

Debbie/ CHECK CALENDAR + RATES / SHOW # OF GUESTS. purchased this house in 2010

Why Debbie/ CHECK CALENDAR + RATES / SHOW # OF GUESTS. chose Texas Gulf Coast

We chose this location because of the wide sandy beaches, natural beauty, and privacy. Coastal Chalet is located on Follet's Island, away from the crowds at Surfside Beach and Galveston. A private drive ends at the house, with a private walk-over leading down to the beach. *Renovations, including addition of bedroom + bathroom, completed in Jan. 2016.

What makes this house unique

We love watching the coastal birds and spotting dolphins in the Gulf.. The unobstructed beach views and privacy make this a truly relaxing beach experience. Endless hours can be spent swimming, playing in the sand, relaxing on the deck. This is also a great spot for saltwater fishing. We often enjoy fresh redfish, whiting, flounder, speckled trout, etc.

I was very privileged to be the first person to stay at this house after the updates. The house was clean and ready for me when I arrived. The property is spacious. There are 3 nice sized bedrooms, 2 with attached bathrooms. There is also a loft area that works well for children. The bathrooms are well appointed with glass enclosed showers. The kitchen/living area is really the highlight of this home. A large granite counter top works well for food prep and service. The kitchen is well stocked and has high end stainless appliances which make cooking easy and a joy. There is a huge flat screen TV in the living room, besides TV's in the bedrooms. The deck is large with great outdoor furniture. It is partially covered, so picking sun or shade is an easy choice. The new walkover is a wonderful addition to this property. The deck at the end of the walkover is a great place to spend beach time. It is literally steps off the beach. Swimming, hunting for shells, and fishing are activities that can be easily enjoyed. The owners are easy to deal with. I absolutely enjoyed my time at this property and definitely plan on returning!

Perfect Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our first family vacation to Surfside made perfect by staying at this property. The close proximity to the beach will struggle to be beaten. The property itself has everything you could wish for, with excellent utilities. We had a wonderful time and fully intend to return to this property for many years to come. Our only advice would be that the AC struggles to keep up at times and for a better nights rest the loft is the best choice.

Fun Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at Coastal Chalet and we certainly recommend it for families with small children. It is right at the end of a dead end street with a easy walk over the dunes to a wonderful beach. Just bring food & sunscreen.

We did have rain but the large covered 2nd floor porch was perfect with comfy deck furniture & super views to the water. The house was comfortable, clean & well equipped with anything you might need. The owner was very accommodating & helped us build a fire on the beach. We even saw "fire flies" at night - a real treat.

Brandon's Beachin' Birthday

  • 5 of 5

The perfect beach house! I rented this house for my boyfriend's 29th birthday for him and a few good friends over the weekend. Externally, the house is large with a wrap around deck and a tranquil patio complete with a lounging area facing the beach- perfect for chasing the early morning sunrise or watching the sunset. Internally, it's spacious and accommodating for our group of friends- not to mention it's adorably decorated! The owner, Debbie, was extremely helpful and provided immediate attention whenever we needed assistance.

As far as entertainment goes- we did very little sight seeing except formed a makeshift golf course on the beach, played a little bocce ball, and some late night crabbing (no success). Mosquitos are a major, MAJOR problem but nothing a little insect repellant can't fix.

If you want a secluded house with a private beach access for good friends, good fun and good times- this is your house! Would love to make this an annual trip going forward!

Hated leaving this place!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time last week!! We loved this place. The house was gorgeous and the deck was exceptionally great!! The seating (the deck was huge...)on the deck was a great place to take a noon nap as the breeze lulled you to sleep...We loved the huge open kitchen...It had everything we needed to cook meals. The beach was a mere 10-15 yards away!!! This truly was a great place to spend with our family!! The owner always had someone there on the spot incase anything came up.

We always vacation a week before our son heads back to college and this place helped us make great memories with him and other family members...

This is the place for a family beach vacation. Fish in the surf, from a jetty, or in the bay. Coffee on the deck in the morning. Sun and sand in the day. Grill a burger or the fish you catch. Build a campfire in the evening (BRING FIREWOOD). Coastal Chalet is located on a fairly remote part of Follet's Island, however Galveston Island is just over the causeway, nine miles to the east.
