House suited our needs.- Lee Anne D , Posted: 07/13/2020
Love Pelican Watch... this is our 3rd or 4th stay there.- Claire H , Posted: 12/28/2019
We have been using Sand 'n Sea for more than 10 years with no need to look elsewhere. We might want to buy a house someday but not sure it's truly feasible.- Claire H , Posted: 12/28/2019
Sand n Sea are so easy to work with and are willing to help with any problems that they can help with.- Kathleen H , Posted: 12/12/2019
This place was great for fishing. The house was very clean. We didn’t even go to the beach to fish. We were catching plenty of fish on the bayside in our dock. Our only issue was keeping the bedrooms cold. The living room would stay cold, but the bedrooms upstairs and downstairs would inconsistently stay cool/warm at night. Not sure what thermostat controls the downstairs.- Omar V , Posted: 09/13/2019
Always enjoy our stay here! Clean and has everything we need to enjoy our vacation! Perfect location to watch the sunset!!- Krystal B , Posted: 08/07/2019
The Pelican swatch provided the perfect spot for our family vacation memories. The sunsets were AMAZING!! The beds were super comfortable and they had everything to make us feel at home.- Debra B , Posted: 07/29/2019
We loved the Pelican Watch home. We caught fish and crabs to eat our 5 year old caught a 18 in trout on her little fishing pole had to have a net to get in. Would stay there again.- Connie W , Posted: 06/29/2019
Great location and reasonable price- Steve L , Posted: 04/14/2019
Great for several couples travelling together.- Alicia G , Posted: 10/24/2018
Wonderful! Expansive bay views, great fishing under the overhead light, outstanding sunsets, lots of outside living areas (decking and under the house). Kids were kept busy fishing/crabbing off the boat dock and adults caught lots of fish at night. Kitchen has everything you need. Living area comfy and enjoyed watching a Texan game and an Astro's playoff game on a big screen TV. This is our second year and fits our family perfectly because of separate bed/bath downstairs.- Hank and Mickie M , Posted: 10/10/2018
Wonderful views from patio, decks and dock! Peaceful and relaxing!- Krystal B , Posted: 09/16/2018

Great location for fishing and watching sunsets. The house has plenty of room and is VERY clean. Everything looks new inside.- Craig N , Posted: 07/30/2017
Great property for a smaller party, but it is surrounded by much more expensive properties which makes you feel a little out of place. However, we very much enjoyed our stay, and S&S was nothing short of amazing to book with.- Ross E , Posted: 07/08/2017
This is a small, older home that sits between two large million dollar plus homes! The floors are uneven---but the house is clean and comfortable. It is a great value for the location. It has magnificent sunsets and a nice boat dock for fishing and relaxing.- Kathleen H , Posted: 05/10/2017
