Stop by the Bright Lite convenience store in the neighborhood to snag some basic supplies and beverages, fill your bait bucket and/or rent a golf cart. Enjoy the Gulfside's uncrowded pedestrian beach (no cars allowed for 300 yards but golf carts welcomed) where you can setup your group's spot for the day on the beach to build sandcastles, jump in the frothy surf, find unique shells and sand dollars, boogie board, shore & surf fish and build an evening bonfire while you listen to the waves under a sea of stars. Or if preferred, utilize the available launch for your boat or fishing pier on the bayside. So much to do so little time!
San Luis Pass and Treasure Island have been known all over the United States for being a saltwater fishing hotspot and the most amazing sunrises & sunsets! It is 15 minutes from Surfside and across the bridge from Galveston's west end and only about 25-30 minutes to the heart of Galveston Island's activities. Most people come to the area to spend quality 'non-commercialized" time with family, extended family, and friend on a clean beach with excellent fishing conveniently located between Galveston and Surfside Beach. It is close enough to take a day trip to Schlitterbahn, Moody Gardens, Pleasure Pier and The Strand, or grab lunch/dinner at the numerous waterfront restaurants including the Sugar Skull Rolling Cafe or Beach or Beach Front Deck Bar & Grill in Surfside.
NOTE: While there is a basic grocery/convenience mart (Bright Lite) in the neighborhood and Seven Seas Grocery about 10 -15 min away, we do suggest, given this is on an island, you purchase your groceries ahead of time or at least plan to make a bit of a drive for most extensive purchases.

My family and I had a wonderful stay. We were immediately impressed how the pictures online were an accurate representation of the home. The neighborhood was very peaceful especially with the sound of the waves. All of the basics for relaxation and ease were in the home. Items such as pot and pans dishes. utensils, washer and dryer, variety of games and all the movies and tv entertainment you can find were provided for our use. There were times however the internet was running slow. Thank you for offering a safe and memorable experience to get away for us.
The home was incredible as it had an open floorplan, inviting, relaxing and quiet. We enjoyed our time very much and will come back! A 10 rating
Love to hear you had such a nice relaxing time at our beach home! You were ideal guests to host. We'd be delighted to have you back again for some more island time!
We loved our stay and hope to come back again! The management and owners were awesome to work with and helped set up a great experience. The house is beautifully and thoughtfully decorated, with large open kitchen, dining, living area. The bedrooms are comfortable and the kids loved the large queen sized bunk beds! The kitchen literally had everything we needed, and the family dinners around the large dining table were so much fun. This whole area is off the beaten path and away for the crowded tourist areas. Quiet neighborhood full of friendly people. The beach access is off to the right a few houses down. We loved this beach, it’s very clean, no broken glass or tar like you have in Galveston. And it’s a very family friendly beach. We rented canopies, chairs and a golf cart for the stay and I highly tecommend spending the extra money. It was well worth it. There is not much close by as far as grocery stores and restaurants but we loved cooking in and took advantage of the gas grill. The sunsets and sunrises from the different beaches were incredible !! And spend some time on the beach at night, so much fun !! If you want a beautiful beach house to Spend quality time with those you love this is the perfect place!!
What a lovely thoughtful review! Thank you Donna. You and your group were such wonderful guests to host. We are thrilled you enjoyed our beach escape so thoroughly. We never tire of the sunrises and sunsets. We agree they are incredible! We'd love to have you back again!
We loved our stay. From crab hunting at night to building sand castles in the day with our granddaughter.
And we love having you in our home! Sounds like a wonderful time at the beach! Glad you found the accommodations clean and cozy. Come on back for some beach and island memories!
Pros: Overall our family was delighted with the home, furnishings and overall beach vacation feel. The WiFi was very fast, tv is large lcd with a nice external sound system. The beds were very comfortable and the grandkids loved the bunk bed, The appliances worked very well and the new washer and dryer were a great feature. The private beach is 10 - 15 min walk away. Cons: the cooking pans are warped and Teflon coating did not work as expected, felt cheap for the otherwise great quality amenities. We saw a dumb waiter in the online photos, we thought that would be great for bringing luggage and groceries up to avoid the stairs, but it evidently is NOT included in the rental as it did not work, our bad, we should have asked... Bring plenty of mosquito spray and groceries, HEB store is 40 minutes away in the Freeport area. Convenient to Galveston, about 40 min drive to the Pleasure Pier, and shopping. We will definitely consider this property for our next vacation...we will rent a golf cart next time for transportation in the subdivision and to the beach.
Appreciate you taking the time to write such a thorough review and sharing your experience. We hope you enjoyed your island time! The owners have put a considerable amount of thought and money into creating a comfortable and classy guest beach stay. Not sure what beach you went to, as there are several accessible from the home (in the neighborhood). The nearest is just 3 houses away and the other 7. Also, yes, you are on an island, we too recommend getting major groceries before arrival. Not sure if you noted the Bright Lite in the neighborhood (basic grocery for incidentals) or the Seven Seas Grocery 15 min away. Regarding the pans, we'll pass along the feedback. They didn't look bad when we checked, but the owners actually replace them yearly. Quite frankly, they've found some guests are very hard on them even putting them directly on the grill. Arg! As for the dumb waiter (cargo lift), as found on many of our homes, it is not advertised for use nor available for guests on any of them. It is a huge liability! Cargo lifts have no safety stops on their motors, like a garage door does. And when the cargo lift is in the down position, there is no safety on the upper deck from falling the 15-18 ft to the ground. Can you imagine one of your grandkids falling off the edge of that? The thought makes us shutter! Obviously, not worth the risk ever. Thanks again for choosing the Captain's Quarters for your getaway!
You always wonder if an online rental will live up to its photos. This home exceeded expectations. From the hammocks to the linen on the beds, the home offered comfort and memories that will last forever. The view of the beach is a short distance away but it is rocky, so you have to walk about three blocks east of the house to go to the beach. We actually preferred a 2 minute ride down the street to the public beach so we could take our SUV. The beaches never had more than 20 people around so we had the feeling of being on a private beach. Overall, an amazing trip...we will retum next year.
Wow, thank you! We're glad you had such a memorable stay at our beach home and found our place comfortable. You were wonderful guests. Yes, please do return!
Beautiful home.... we loved the floor plan. My family and I were able to enjoy time together because of the set up. Super clean. Thank you and hope to enjoy it again.
Why thank you! We're so glad you had a pleasant enjoyable time together! We appreciate you being such kind courteous guests - we'd be delighted to have you back again!
We loved this house and location (so much so that we called and extended our trip). Everything was perfect and easy. The beach was nicer than expected for Texas and not super crowded. Only recommendation is to do your grocery shopping before you get down there because there isn’t much around, except for an awesome drive thru daiquiri spot. We will be back!
Always a good sign when a guest extends their stay! So glad to hear you had such a wonderful getaway! Thanks for being such a courteous guest. We'd love to have you back again. :) In the future, the Bright Lite, located in the neighborhood has the basics, and Seven Seas Grocery a few miles away has more. But we agree, grocery shopping ahead of time makes it much easier, especially when only in town for a shorter stay.
Place is very nice and true to photos and the reviews.
Steven’s place is very nice and true to photos and the reviews. Everything was very clean and the space is well thought out and has great flow for the family to spread out. Everything was easy to find and we did not lack any for anything. It’s amazing the thought and detail they’ve put behind this house. We will definitely return!”
Glad to hear you and your family enjoyed our home and your vacation experience. Appreciate the feedback and kind words, and thanks for taking such great care of our home during your stay. We'd gladly welcome you and your family back again!
This property was exactly what we were looking for to enjoy a beach weekend! The location is great with easy walking distance to the beach. The views from the deck are a must to enjoy the sunset. The house is modern, fresh and very well appointed. We are happy to have found Captain’s Quarters....we will be back!
We aim to please and delighted to hear we achieved. Thanks so much for your kind words and taking such great care of our home during your visit. We'd love to have you back again!
Luxurious accommodations, beautifully decorated, some of the most comfortable beds we have ever slept in, fantastic deck with great views! 6 of us stayed very comfortably. There was plenty of space for everyone, and the house was very well appointed. Steven, the owner, was very attentive to our needs. We all really enjoyed our time at the Captain's Quarter, and will definitely recommend to our friends and colleagues.
So glad you enjoyed your Captain's Quarters stay! Our goal is to offer the cleanest most comfortable getaway experience. Thank you for choosing our home!
This was our family's first trip to the beach with our 2 small children and they loved it! There were 6 total adults and two kids and we all had plenty of space! We were super close to the beach and it was a quiet stretch of beach in comparison to Galveston. The kitchen had everything we needed, beds were super comfy, beautiful decor, and the best towels ever! We loved sitting out on the deck and eating dinner while wave watching. We made a quick trip over to the aquarium in Galveston, which was super easy and convenient. We were bummed to hear the golf cart died right before our stay, which would have made the short trek to the beach with kids and gear a little more convenient but not a huge deal. If you want a well kept, beautiful house close to the beach, look no further!
Thanks for choosing our place for your family's first beach trip. It sounds like the time was wholly enjoyed! Please come back again!
My family and I stayed at Captain's Quarters for a full seven days. What a wonderful week it was! The deck was the most popular place by far! The deck offers sun and shade, sunrises over the gulf in the morning, sunsets over the bay in the evening, and a wonderful picnic table for you and your family to eat outside! The inside of the house is AMAZING! The living/kitchen/dining area is so spacious and decorated so beautifully. We had a fabulous time! We didn't want to leave! I highly recommend Captain's Quarters for your next beach vacation!
What a nice review, thank you! Thrilled you and your family had a chance to relax and take in the surrounding views. Would love to have you visit again!
This home is beautifully decorated and has everything needed for the perfect beach get-away! The owner was extremely helpful and responsive with any questions we had. Highly recommend!
Glad you so thoroughly enjoyed your stay! You were fantastic, clean and courteous guests. We'd gladly welcome you back!
We had a quick getaway to the coast and can't wait to schedule a longer visit. The home is absolutely stunning. We loved the open floor plan and the way the home flowed out to the enormous deck with a view of the Gulf and perfect for hanging out on vacation! The home was immaculate and very well maintained. The location was quiet and very convenient to the beach. We even tried a little fishing and caught a Red Fish. We will definitely be back for a longer stay next time!
We came for Spring Break to celebrate my 40th with just our family of 4. The weather didn't cooperate like we had hoped but everything about the house and dealing with Steven was excellent. The house is decorated beautifully and the beds were so comfortable!! The kitchen was fully stocked and made it easy to cook meals. The golf cart is such a great addition and made it so easy to get to and from the beach. I can't say enough about The Captain's Quarters and would definitely stay here again!
Felt like a home away from home with contemporary furnishings and endless amenities! If the hubs and I didn't have our kids (two and four-legged kinds), we would've happily stayed in more. Lovely property!
Thank you for the great review Eileen! We appreciate you staying with us in Treasure Island and nothing makes us more happy than to have happy Guests like you.
We enjoyed the view on the deck most of all. We spotted dolphins in the water the first day we were there. The golf cart was nice to take a spin around the neighborhood and to the beach to go shelling. We had a very nice experience with family and friends. Everyone enjoyed. My 2 year old Grandaughter said "Me Home" shortly after her Mom and Aunt and her arrived, which meant she was ready to settle in and stay for awhile. Everyone in our party was very pleased with the accommodations. We look forward to planning another trip soon.
So happy you had a wonderful vacation stay at the Captain's Quarters and very much appreciate your positive review. Glad you got to see the dolphin show from the deck. We will have to get them on the payroll!
The house was in a very nice neighborhood with a great view of the surf. The house was very clean and stocked with higher end amenities. The house was very close to the beach which made for a wonderful run every morning.
Thank you for staying with us in Treasure Island at the Captain's Quarters. We are very happy you liked the upscale amenities supplied in the home and also the convenience of the location. We appreciate having Guests like you all!
We love this house! The location is prime with a perfect view of the water from the large deck and from inside the house as well. The beach is very close, very quite, lots of shells to collect and good fishing. The house is beautifully decorated--not overdone, just perfect! Looks brand new with very cool beach colors throughout. The open area with the den, kitchen and dining areas (there are two) had plenty of space for our group of six, including two little ones, to move around or play freely. Everything we needed was furnished in both the very large kitchen and bath areas. Best of all, they provided a golf cart for the 3-minute ride to the beach making it so easy to run back and forth to take some breaks from the sun. The owner was very attentive and quick to get back to us when we had questions. Thanks, Steven, it was a wonderful find and we hope to return soon!
The beach house is beautifully decorated. Very comfortable had everything you would need. It is bigger and prettier than the pictures show. The Golf cart made it so easy to get everything to the beach. Only thing I would suggest to any future vacationers. Stay here!! bring your groceries because you won't want to leave. We had a great time here and we recommend The Captain's Quarters. Thank you Steven
So glad to hear you had such a good experience at The Captain's Quarters! We'd be delighted to welcome you back.
Our family enjoyed a 5 night awesome stay at this home. Once you enter this home you feel so relaxed with its beautiful decor. This home has everything you need for true relaxation! Nice views of the ocean from inside the home and outside on the huge deck. My children Which range from young adult, teen, to toddler all had a great time so much included in this home for all. We enjoyed rides on the included golf cart feeling the ocean breeze on our faces was nice. We have rented homes closer to town in Galveston before, but this was such a nice and quiet area that I think it has made us want to only stay out on this side. The owner Steven is great he answered all my questions very promptly. Would so stay again and highly recommend to anyone this home is a true gem.
Always nice to hear our guests' time was thoroughly enjoyed, and you had a chance to relax and take in the views! Also, so glad your children at each age found something fun to do and create lasting beach memories with their family. Appreciate your great care of our home, we'd love to have you come back again!
My family thoroughly enjoyed our 4 day stay at this house. You can see the beach from the house and it is a short 1 min golf cart ride away. The golf cart is a great asset to have if you need to haul beach gear. There was plenty of open space along the beach to set up our gear and soak in the day. The neighborhood was nice and quiet. The house itself was cozy with plenty of attention to detail that makes you really happy to be there. There was tons of space for my young kids to play around the living room and the deck outside. The kids of course loved the bunk beds as well. An A+ also for the house being well maintained and clean. The owner answered all of my pre-trip questions promptly and offered advice on fishing that came in handy. We would definitely recommend this beach house to everyone.
Delighted to hear your family thoroughly enjoyed your stay, and you had a chance to take advantage of some of the great beach amenities. Thank you for being such an easy guest. We'd love to have your family back to The Captain's Quarters.
We had a nice vacation and enjoyed the home and the golf cart. We recommend this property to anyone as it was flawless.
Glad you enjoyed your vacation stay. We appreciated your great communication from inquiry to check-out. Thanks for leaving the home in such excellent condition. We welcome you back anytime.
This property was perfect no expenses spared will definitely be returning great location with beautiful views very helpful having the note cards thru out property to explain where things were and very spa like atmosphere thank you for providing a flawless stay
Glad you enjoyed your getaway and The Captain's Quarters treated you well! We appreciate you leaving our home in such good order after your stay. You are more than welcome back!
My boyfriend and I (and our two dogs) stayed at this property over Memorial Day weekend and would HIGHLY recommend it. We've stayed at two other properties close by (one in the same neighborhood) and this was by far a superior experience! The house is, or at least feels, newly remodeled and was fully stocked with everything we'd potentially need -- towels, high-quality linens (I never thought I'd rave about sheets on a review, but OH MY GOD the bed felt like a cloud), an abundance of kitchenware, dishwasher tabs, trashbags, salt & pepper, etc. The only store run we had to make was for food supplies, which is easy to do on your way in. Better yet, it is pet-friendly (the dogs LOVED the wraparound, gated porch) but doesn't FEEL pet-friendly (read: smelled lovely, no random stray dog hairs or invisible spots in the rugs that our guys were particularly interested in). Easy access to the beach either by foot, golf cart or the bikes left for your use. We'd planned to go out for dinner each night but ended up staying in and cooking, grilling and enjoying the margarita machine (it does smoothies too!) and wine from the fridge. In fact, we didn't really leave the porch, which has a nice set of loungers and a bar countertop area with an ocean view. Steven was super easy to work with and responsive to any questions we had. We will absolutely be back. Well done, Captain's Quarters!
My wife and I are truly flattered, Skye. Delighted to hear you and your boyfriend, and of course the dogs too, had such an enjoyable time at the Captain's Quarters. We try to create an experience for our guests that will generate positive memories whether on the beach or hanging out at the house. Thanks so much for choosing our home for your vacation and leaving the home in immaculate condition. We'd love to have you stay again!
We were very happy to be able to see water from 3 sides of the house! The views were wonderful and the beach is a 3 minute walk. Having the golf cart and bikes made it even faster to take quick trips to the beach several times a day, or to load everything and spend the whole day there. We were impressed with the attractive decor of the house. It has 2 spigots downstairs for rinsing in addition to a great outdoor shower with hot water! We definitely want to go back!
Thanks for taking the time to write a nice review and choosing the Captain's Quarters!
Spent the weekend at this beautiful home in Treasure Island. The house was very clean and well put together. We loved the bar area with the margarita machine as well as the large dining room. Awesome queen bunkbeds for the kids. There was plenty of deck space to hangout, get some sun and grill out with clear views of the water. The huge space under the house was very convenient for when it rained. There was plenty of room for everyone to hangout and toss the football around. We enjoyed playing bags at night while the kids played in the yard. The boys really enjoyed fishing from the beach. I didn't know the fishing in the area was that great! We caught Speckled Trout, Redfish, Sheepshead, Mackerel and even some Blue Crabs by accident! The golf cart made getting all of our things to the beach very simple. We look forward to staying here again soon!
Andrew, glad you and your family thoroughly enjoyed your stay despite some rain. Thank you for leaving the home so clean and choosing our home for your vacation.
