On this part of the Texas coast, you can drive your car, truck, or RV right onto 13 miles of sandy beach. From DolphinVista it's a 5 minute drive to the Surfside beach entrance or drive five more minutes to the 5 free beach entrance roads. More fun than renting a beachfront house because your car or truck carries all the gear - sun canopy, coolers, lounge chairs, toys, clothes, float tubes, towels, cots, boom box, dogs, barbeque grill, fishing poles, etc. Park near the sand dunes and set up your shaded camp just feet from the rolling surf. Put on the suntan lotion and ...build your sand castle, look for seashells, feed the seagulls, relax and enjoy!

Pack up and drive home for a relaxing evening in the quiet privacy of Dolphin Lane. No street parking like most rentals... the driveway holds 8 cars/RVs. Watch the sunset from the high deck or the dock along the canal. A rare resort house with two big skylights for moonlit nights and sunny days and palm trees and fishing dock plus all kinds of BIG yachts and ships sailing past. DolphinVista is located on a secluded cul-de-sac street between a private canal and the Texas Intracoastal Waterway. The canal has a new dock for fishing and launching kayaks with a ladder, so climbing in and out is easy.

Two outdoor grills for cooking in the shade while watching the local boats on the canal or the giant tugboat barges on the Intracoastal waterway. You have a 5 burner stainless steel propane grill AND a charcoal grill to cook all your favorite entrees. Enjoy Xfinity WiFi for high speed internet, gaming, and TV. Pets allowed with an extra fee (to pay for the extra cleaning after you leave). No smoking inside the house. You can relax with fishing and crabbing off the back dock. (Texas fishing license required if you are 18 or older.) Catch the sunset from the private back deck. Watch huge tug boats and yachts motor by from the front deck or in the shade underneath while relaxing on the two person hammock.

A long double wide concrete driveway allows RV parking plus 3 cars underneath the house out of the weather plus 4 more cars on the driveway. Galveston Island is 20 minutes along the beach road. Galveston Seawall restaurants are about 35 minutes away. This house has city of Freeport municipal water (not wells) and city sewers (no leaky septic tank) that meets all government standards.

The house is not the typical sandy beach cabin. Two skylights make you feel outside while sitting in air conditioned comfort. You can sleep under a skylight and enjoy the stars and moon. It is fully furnished and decorated; with all appliances except a dishwasher. We have clean city water, not the funny tasting private well water most beach houses use. Each bedroom and the living room has a TV . There is a full size futon in the living room that seats 4 and sleeps two. The house has two layers of siding plus new Pella double pane windows and patio door. This makes it very quiet inside when you shut all the doors and windows. Or open everything up and it feels like an giant umbrella at the shore. One bedroom has a Queen bed and the other bedroom has two twin beds. The futon in the living room folds down to a full size bed.

This is a no smoking home inside, but with lots of covered outside places to take a puff.

The neighborhood is very quiet because Dolphin Lane ends in a cul-de-sac one block away, so there's never any fast cars. The streets are very safe for biking, scooters, skateboards and walking. Mature tall palm trees rustle in the sea breeze while you relax on the front or rear deck. Each deck has a stairway. The neighborhood is mostly homeowners and is very quiet and private. The driveway is huge... you could park two 40ft motor homes side by side, plus a couple of cars.

The house has central air and heat and lots of screened windows for those cool spring and fall days. The prevailing sea breeze blows straight into the front door and out the back door and windows. The kitchen and the living room have vaulted ceilings; and each has a big skylight that makes it feel like you are outside with the sun moving across the room making it bright and cheery. The front deck has 6 chairs that won't blow away. Half the front deck has a roof for shade and the other half is great for private sunbathing or stargazing. The view of the Inter coastal Waterway from the front deck is entrancing when a big tug boat motors through or a fast deep-sea fishing boat skims by. The rear deck looks at palm trees, the sunset, and the canal. The neighbors have fishing boats docked in their back yard! The dock has a light for safety.
The owners Bruce and Debbie have run a Bed & Breakfast in Lake Jackson for years and the family does all the maintenance and cleaning and disinfecting. We do not use nomadic cleaning teams. We keep Dolphin Vista maintained and spiffy so you have fun, fun, fun! Check-in is 4:00 pm and checkout is 11:00 am. There is an electronic combination lock so you don't have to worry about losing the key or driving home with the key in your pocket.
Located in Surfside Beach, this vacation home is in a rural area and on the waterfront. Quintana Xeriscape Nature Reserve and Swan Lake reflect the area's natural beauty and area attractions include Brazosport Museum of Natural Science and Sea Center Texas. Be sure to check out the area's animals with activities such as game walks and birdwatching.
