About Paul Speich

Our Family has owned property in this area for over 40 years and we have enjoyed the Pass for years. We built this house in part to supplement our daughter's college fund. She will be heading off next year and we are doing what we can to prepare.

Paul Speich purchased this house in 2013

Why Paul Speich chose Texas

This house is well equipped and we tried to base the beds and spacing on high end Hotel resorts. You will be hard pressed to find a nicer property. It is a family vacation house we the concept of getting away even when the house has 10 other people with you. You can relax in a beach style luxury, leather couches, well equipped kitchen and 32' TV in each room.

What makes this house unique

Half of this deck is covered to allow those who enjoy the beach but hate the burn to enjoy a view and allow the breeze to blow by but not get burned. For those who like to lay out, the other half of the deck is for you. The house has bamboo floors throughout with tile in the bathrooms, crown moldings, and Granite. Unique for beach rentals.

Lovely home.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed during Spring Break this year, two families. As all the other reviews state, it's a beautiful house and kitchen is stocked with everything you need. The owner was wonderful.

Just a couple of cons that we wanted to share. The house is very tall and higher than the houses around it, meaning A LOT of stairs to get up to the house.

The two main bedrooms have no dresser or shelves to store your stuff. The closets had no hangers or any type of organizer or shelves. When I rent a home for a week, I want to be able to unpack not live our of my suitcase. Every table and nightstand is covered with decorations.

The older couch in the living was incredibly uncomfortable to sit on.

Propane is not included with the grill so we brought a tank with but we were never able to get it to work with the grill.

Owner's Response: Thanks you very much for your feed back. I'm sorry we have a lot of stairs, I understand, we are a NEW house. Current Windstorm Code requires a house be 18 feet above sea level, for the "Oops effect" I went 19 feet just to make sure the I would pass all codes. The houses around us are 20+ years old and are grandfathered to be lower. However, the wave height during Hurricanes Rita and Ike were 16 feet high and knocked over a lot of 12-14 foot houses. So, if I lose a star on a review for abiding by CURRENT Windstorm code and making sure my investment stays safe, well, I'm Ok with that. As for dressers, sorry no one has ever asked about that. We usually have hangers in the closest and since your review I have purchased a lot them...that was a great assessment. The night stands only have a lamp and a clock on them. I like to read before bed sometimes and assume others do as well. Just planning your next day or a good book. The pull out couches are a both 3 years old and are mainly split-leather couches from Ashley Furniture. I'll see about buying new couches this winter, but they're in great shape and relatively new. I really enjoy my guests responses as all of them have been great. I built the house to be 5 star rental, a place where YOU want be, to be with friends and family to enjoy and relax. We hope you return. Thanks you.

Freeport Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

This past spring break my family and I stayed in Freeport. It was our first time to not stay in Galveston proper and I'm really glad we did. The beach was quiet and the weather was moderate to cold. We had an amazing, but more importantly relaxing trip. The best part was the home we rented. The pictures of this home really do not do the home justice. It is impeccably decorated, cozy and comfortable. The kitchen is not only well appointed, it has plenty of seating and gorgeous views of the ocean. The house has an amazing deck with fantastic benches to sit with your favorite beverage to watch the sun go down. There is plenty of parking and the outdoor shower was great for the kids and the dog. I cannot say enough about the cleanliness of the house and the graciousness of the owners. The fact that it is dog friendly is just the icing on the cake. I am a mother of 5 so I really like the fact that my good time is going to fund a college education even if it's an Aggie education (just kidding). We rent from VRBO all the time and our rentals are always adequate. This house was better than advertised and a real treat. We will be renting this home again!!

On a side note the house is just a few steps from the beach but we rented a golf cart from K6 sports and they delivered right to the front door. I recommend renting one it makes the trips to the beach easier and you can explore the entire neighborhood; beachside and bayside.

San Luis Pass beach

We are located 15 miles west of Galveston, and 9 miles east of Surfside Beach. Lots of views and away from the crowds of Galveston beaches. Two great golf courses within 20 miles. The Wilderness course in Lake Jackson is beautiful and shaded with majestic oaks. The Moody Course in Galveston is open and lots of challenges, bring lots of balls they have lots of water. The shelling and fishing in the Pass is legendary and good year round. With everything the area has to offer it's a great place to vacation. Have fun relax
