Located on desirable Gulf Boulevard, this breezy Key West style beach house offers wide views of the beach from the private balcony. A porch swing and rocking chairs make it the perfect place to relax after beach time.  Beach access is directly across the street.

About Lynn Mauer

During my "growing up" years, I was fortunate to live in some of the prettiest beaches in America and abroad. My father was career Navy, which means the water or beach was almost always nearby.

I absolutely love having vacationers stay at my beach house! Hearing laughter from happy guests is music.

Lynn Mauer purchased this house in 2007

Why Lynn Mauer chose Texas Gulf Coast

Perfect property. It is all about location.

What makes this house unique

This is one of the prettiest properties on Gulf Boulevard. The beach access is directly across the street. Why come to the beach if you can't hear the waves at night?

Couldn't Have Asked For Anything Better!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent Accommodations! Spacious & Clean With All The Amenities and Supplies You Need For Your Stay On The Island! Even Beach Chairs And Umbrellas So You Don't Have To Pack Yours! Loved The Breezy Covered Porch The Most. The Owners Are Awesome And Very Accommodating With Any Questions Or Needs We Had. Highly Recommended!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to South Padre was amazing! The house had everything we needed and more! The house is located across the street from the beach. We loved the balcony. Our dogs enjoyed the view too. I can't say enough about how pleased we were with the house, Lynn and Captain Kevin. We will definitely be back.

Loved this family rental!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful rental, convenient location within a short walking distance from the beach. I was grateful that we could borrow foldable chairs, umbrellas, sand toys, and boards- for fun on the beach! I especially loved swinging and chatting on the porch! We will return!!

Everything we imagined and more.

  • 5 of 5

The beach house is like the photo. It's close to the beach. Beach gear was provided and was truly enjoyed. The jacuzzi tub in the master was perfect for the end of the day. We loved having coffee on the patio. I plan on returning as soon as I can.
