About Denise Baxter

I live in Bayou Vista just 10 minutes from the island. My brother who is co-owner lives in Oklahoma. We were looking for something to invest in, other than the stock markets. My brother and I not only bought this as an investment, but also a place for he or I to just get away. At first we discussed flipping houses, but we decided to go this route. I still got to do the remodeling thing that I so enjoy, but it's ours so and it's a piece of us.

Denise Baxter purchased this condo in 2014

Why Denise Baxter chose Texas Gulf Coast

I fell in love with this place as soon as the relator showed me the unit....The view is awesome and all property personal are friendly and very helpful.... Everything is basically minutes away.

What makes this condo unique

The location of this condo is awesome. Along with the amazing view. I fell in love with it and had to have it. The 2 week remodeling is finally done and the place looks fabulous. All the comforts of home, but so many other things to do, just across the street or down the road. Just depends on if you want to walk or drive. Come stay at our place and enjoy!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Corliss and her family were great! They took very good care of the condo as if it was their own. I was so glad I was able to accommodate the dates they needed.

Comfortable and great location

  • 5 of 5

It was great booking with Denise. The place was comfortable. At first I thought I would have preferred a full size fridge, but it wasn't necessary. Everything is really close by. My 6 and 3 year olds loved the bunk beds.

Wonderful condo!!! Great alternative to a hotel....anytime

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Denise was a pleasure to work with in reserving the condo. She was very responsive to all of my inquiries, so I had no concerns about our stay at all. She even checked in on us soon after we arrived at the condo to ensure all was to our liking. The condo has a very nice beach theme throughout all rooms, not overdone, but just enough. It was very clean and neat, and created a cozy, relaxing and comfortable atmosphere for the three of us. We were there for cheer competition at Moody Gardens, during the last weekend of Mardi Gras and the condo location was away from any traffic or activities associated with Mardi Gras, but just 5 minutes away from Moody Gardens, and were able to take back streets to avoid the seawall traffic; however, a big PLUS was that the shuttle that took folks to/from the Strand for Mardi Gras activities, made regular stops in front of the condo complex, so that eliminated the concern about driving and find parking.

All in all, we will definitely seek to stay at this condo again in the future.

Denise you are awesome and it was such a pleasure to meet you and Mr. Bob!

Wake up to the ocean view or see the sun set on the private balcony of this beach front condo while listening to the Ocean and sipping your coffee or Mimosa if you like....

Conveniently located to all the fine and casual dining. Shopping for groceries is right next door or around the block. Walk just across the beach road to the Gulf of Mexico swim, snorkel, build sand castles, look for that perfect sea shell or simply take in the rays.

Fishing pier just across the street, Pleasure pier a few blocks up the seawall. Including Shlitterbahn and Moody Gardens just minutes away

Night life on the island is also entertaining. Head to the many lounges and bars on the Seawall or Historical Strand area.

Post Office has cute little shops, bars and dinning also.

There are many daytime activities on the Island. Your options are overwhelming. One of my favorites, if not across the street in waves, or laying by the pool, is the Strand. Shopping, drinking a cold beer, or glass of wine. Watching the world go by
