Overview

Freeport House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

(Note: WE ARE NOT POSTED ON CRAIGSLIST)

You're not just on the beach, you own the beach.

Enjoy our inviting and spacious 1400 sq. ft. beachfront home on the sandy beach with breathtaking views over the Gulf of Mexico and Christmas Bay. The entire house has just been remodeled: kitchen, bathrooms, paint, decks, fireplace, beds, sofas, ceiling fans, even a new pretty white railing around the two decks.

We think you'll enjoy your time here while your blood pressure drops.

The master bedroom includes a king size bed, double futon that can pull out to be a double bed, reading lamps, an en-suite bathroom with a garden tub and separate shower, large walk-in closet, dresser, private porch, and tranquil views of the sun rising over the Gulf (there is no better way to wake up).

The guest bedroom has a new tall queen bed, reading lamp, lounge chair, and dresser. The bunkroom has a double bed on the bottom with a twin on top, another twin bed and a reading lamp. Feel free to take out our boogie boards in the closet.

The house is literally right on the beach with just a sand dune between the beach and our home. Our neighborhood uses a little wooden crossover bridge for getting to the beach in order to preserve the dunes. The beach itself is beautiful for finding treasures like shells that wash up from the sea. There is mostly fine sand with shells interspersed. In the summertime, the water around Galveston is warm. During certain weeks throughout the year, beachgoers will see a line of seaweed that has washed up on the beach. Seaweed is not always there and is not the norm, but it is natural and just a part of the beach ecosystem. It is partially responsible for building up the beach and dunes that we all enjoy.

About Claire Street

We are a sister and two brothers helping to care for our family's vacation home. The picture is several years old but we look even better now! We've created countless cherished memories at this house and are excited about having you come and experience our treasured spot.

Why Claire Street chose Texas Gulf Coast

We've made this our vacation getaway ever since Dear Old Dad built it on what he called the 'Best Beach Lot Ever' (he talks like that sometimes). But before you assume he is exaggerating (don't feel bad, we sometimes do too) take a look at our pictures. This honestly is a location unlike any other with a view down miles of unspoiled beach.

What makes this house unique

We all agree that sitting out on one of the beach-facing porches of our house is our favorite thing to do - people watching, watching the pelicans fly by, dolphins at play, seeing the colors change in the evening. The house is not overly cavernous, but has plenty of space to find privacy when you want it.

Perfect location right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This house is nice and the perfect location right on beach. You can set up on the beach for the day and leave your stuff with no issues, going back and forth to the house as needed. That was 5 stars for us - so convenient. We left our canopy up the entire weekend, only bringing our chairs and personal items up each night. Another perfect thought when they built the house was to put a water faucet and hose on the top front porch so you can rinse & dry off before going in the house to get the sand off of you. That was great. They also have a faucet and hose downstairs under the house which is great. The house was pretty equipped with what you need and had plenty of towels. It has a washer & dryer so you can do laundry if needed. Note - the washer is a little loud so try not to wash if someone is sleeping.

We had brought our own toiletries, toilet paper and garbage bags, but they did have some small bottles of 'hotel style' toiletries in each bathroom and they had plenty of toilet paper and garbage bags for kitchen. They even had liquid soap in bathrooms and kitchen in case you don't bring. They had washing powder as well which was nice.

The house has a great view and perfectly situated on beach, in a great little neighborhood. Ver quiet and you can hear the waves at night. Nice house.

We would definitely go back. Really enjoyed our Labor Day weekend stay.

Incredible home with incredible view & Responsive hosts.

  • 5 of 5

The house was right on the beach--couldn't be closer. The home was clean & exactly as pictured. I stayed in May with my brothers & sisters and had a very nice time at the remote location without any foot traffic at the beach house. Thank you for helping us book this amazing home. We hope to see you next year. We wish you continued success.

Great House, perfect location, very attentive owners, great experience

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at "House on the Beach Looking out to Sea." This time it was a multi-generational family experience, with ages 12 through 76 represented. There was truly something going on for everyone...beach combing, fishing, surfing, long walks, running on the beach...anything having to do with sun, sand and sea, was at your disposal...and I mean immediately at your disposal. The house was immaculate, reflecting the care of the Street family. Claire was a joy to deal with, as was husband Andrew. Our four grandchildren particularly enjoyed the state of the art television in every room. The views out on the deck in the early morning and at sundown were truly stunning. Coming from Wyoming, we particularly enjoy Texas gulf coast seafood, and had a memorable meal at the Red Snapper Inn at Surfside. This home was "As Advertised" and gets Five Stars in my book. I can recommend it without reservation

Our search for the BEST beachouse is OVER!

  • 5 of 5

I am hesitant about being so truthful about this wonderful house and the outstanding service we received from the owner because I would like to keep this place all to ourselves. But since we have to share, and everyone goes right to the reviews, I will tell you about our wonderful vacation experience. We stayed for a week in June, and enjoyed EVERY single day. When we first stepped in the door, we were welcomed by the cleanliness and spaciousness of this beautiful house. The view from the balcony was hard to tear my eyes from before we even went inside. If you have a family with children, you really cannot get a better location than this house! The kitchen is equipped with an icemaker, which is FANTASTIC, and makes it much nicer. Many houses do not have this feature. A great washer and dryer are provided for your needs. The kitchen is very well appointed with anything you need to cook with, and lots of spices and utensils for any meal. The bedrooms are spacious, clean, and have soft sheets, good pillows, and comfy mattresses. The bathrooms are clean, provide ample hot water, and the towels were soft. The TVs are large, in every bedroom, and have satellite for viewing pleasure. The master bedroom has a DVD player, and it's own balcony. I would be there first thing in the morning, last thing in the evening, and you can look all the way down the beach from either of the balconies. Under the house is concrete, which is nice for feet and cleaning off sand. There is a storage area where all kinds of toys, chairs, and boogie boards are kept. One SUPER NICE feature is the fact there is a shower with HOT and COLD water under the house to wash off after a long day. A sink and cutting board are also there to wash and prep your catch, should you choose to do that. There is also a water hose at the top of the stairs to wash your feet off for convenience. Beach towels are provided, so that makes it nice to not have to bring those with us. Literally, EVERYTHING is there for your convenience. I even found Aloe Vera for sunburn and bug spray under the sink for our use. Again, I will say there is no better location than this house! Kids can play right below the porch at any time, and we feel safe about it. At night there is rope lights around the porch where you can sit on the many comfortable lounge chairs and sip whatever, since there is a blender provided to make yummy drinks. We had six people staying there, and had TONS of room to spare. We loved every minute

The best by the sea vacation we've spent on the Gulf Coast!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my three sisters spent five days here - the house is gorgeous and very open. There is music, large screen tv, movies, etc. We didn't watch tv, but listened to great music. The best part is being on the ocean. We cooked all of our meals in the spacious kitchen, spent mornings and evening either on the large deck or gathering sea shells - yes, real sea shells; the kind you find in stores. There is a nature reserve, white sandy beaches and the beach area is so clean. We enjoyed being on the Freeport/San Luis side and chose to drive in from Houston via 288 and bypass the Galveston traffic. We did go into Galveston and it is only about a 20 minute scenic drive along the coast.

The owners are exceptional and they pay attention to every detail.

We are looking forward to returning soon.....

Map

Car: recommended

You're going to be located a few short feet behind the dunes looking down miles of undeveloped Gulf of Mexico beach. Great location if you'd like to be in a small neighborhood but have a secluded feel, you practically own the beach here.

There is a bait and tackle store within walking distance of the home for quick supplies or you will be able to take a short 10 minute drive down Bluewater Highway to get great seafood and shops.
