About Paul Speich

Our Family has owned property in this area for over 45 years and we have enjoyed the Pass for years. We built this house in part to supplement our daughter's college fund. She attends Texas A&M College Station and Killing it. She's heading to Law School fall of 2018. We really need your help!!!

Paul Speich purchased this house in 2013

Why Paul Speich chose Freeport

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.

An excellent stay!

  • 5 of 5

The property actually shows better than the pictures! The view was spectacular and you could easily hear the ocean sitting on the deck. The deck itself is huge and could easily entertain 20-30 people. Lots of seating and places to eat a meal, read a book and relax.

The rooms have only queen sized beds, but they are very well furnished. Bedding was quite new and in very good shape. Showers are almost instantly hot, including the outdoor one!

The common area has one of the best, if not the best of any vacation home I have ever stayed in. The kitchen was plenty large enough for 3 people cooking a Thanksgiving dinner. How can I get that kitchen island??

The proximity to the beach was great for long walks or searching for shells.

It was truly and excellent thanksgiving weekend!

Amazing Vacation for Large Family

  • 5 of 5

We loved this beautiful beach home and truly enjoyed our week long vacation. Our 5 kids and my parents fit comfortably in the home. We even accommodated an additional guest for 2 nights on the pull out sofa. The extra half bathroom upstairs makes a huge difference for a larger group. The open living and dining room was much larger than expected from pictures, maybe due to taller ceilings and windows all the way around. The finishes are high-end and the decor & art work create a lovely beachy atmosphere. We appreciated having a tv in each bedroom on rainy afternoons, because we did not bring any personal electronics for the kids. I do recommend renting the golf cart. The private beach entrance is just a couple of streets up, but the golf cart makes a big difference in avoiding kid complaints about walking, as well as increasing the ease of hauling tents, chairs and toys to the beach. We needed an additional larger cart & rented a 6 seat from Rick's. The private beach is nice, because cars cannot drive on that area. If preferred, there is golf cart access to the adjoining public beach and you can access it with your own vehicle up the highway a bit. We enjoyed the small group of vacationing families on the private beach. Even though our kids are strong swimmers, we had them wear life jackets in the surf. We are respectful of the power of the water and know currents can sometimes be unpredictable. There are also many beautiful shells to find, so our "sensitive feet" kids wore water socks. We came home with a stunning shell collection.

The home is in a friendly, quiet neighborhood. We caught crabs for dinner using twine and chicken legs/necks just across the road in the bay side of Treasure Island. We cooked all of our meals and had plenty of room for food storage. Bring provisions as grocery stores aren't close & are expensive. Closer bait shop has limited items, but nice for extra ice. Bring mosquito spray! (aka state bird of TX in the summer)

It was great to have the kids shower off downstairs after a day at the beach or "crab-hunting" with flashlights after sunset. Sunsets are gorgeous on the bay, which you can view from the beach or the side of the large deck. I took some amazing photos of the beach during sunset as the pink light played off the clouds onto the surf & sand. Also relaxing breezes and surf views off the side of the deck. Paul was readily available and a helpful friendly host. We will be back soon!

This was the perfect beach house for us. It is a beautiful home and had everything we needed and more. The bedrooms are all good sizes and very comfortable. The kitchen is so well appointed, we didn't miss anything. And the views are amazing! Thanks, Paul, for a wonderful place!

A Beautiful House with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time. The house was beautiful and kitchen was well equipped with everything I needed. The owner was always accessible and very nice to work with. The beach access was several streets over, so we rented the golf cart and are so glad we did. I would recommend this vacation home to anyone!!

Great home, great location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay at this home and one of many within the Treasure Island subdivision. We were very satisfied with the home and its location to the beach. The optional golf cart was very handy in getting our family and belongings to the beach each day. The bunk beds were a hit with the kids, bedrooms had very comfortable mattresses, the kitchen was easy to prep and cook in with plenty of cookware, and the deck was more than spacious with a great view of the coast. The homeowner was very accommodating to all of our needs. This home will be added to our list of repeat homes within the Treasure Island subdivision.

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
