The Space If you want peace and quiet, time to meditate, write, read, do yoga or absolutely nothing at all this is the place for you! No wifi or cable but miles and miles of beautiful, open space. As a crow flies, approximately five miles south of South Padre Island and 1.5 miles from a completely undeveloped 8 mile stretch of beach called Boca Chica State Park.
Wonderful for bird watching no matter what time of year. Fall weather at the Texas gulf coast is usually perfect with lower humidity, stunning water and sky, and almost no one around! At times you have the beach all to yourself. Sit out back on the covered patio and just listen to the wind. The night sky looks like a blanket of stars.
My neighborhood feels a bit like a ghost town, but in a good way. It is off the grid in terms of water so conservation is a necessity. It is the best of both worlds, out in the country, yet right by the ocean. There is always a coastal breeze. In fact, when the weather is 90 in Brownsville proper, we are at least 5+ degrees cooler.
The ocean is slightly over a mile away. We are the last neighborhood so there is nothing between us and the beach!
The Rio Grande Valley is very unique, you have the convergence of the Gulf Coast, the Great Plains, the Chihuahua Desert and a subtropical climate. All of these different elements are well represented in this specific area.
Much of the surrounding land is owned by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as an extension of the Lower Rio Grande Valley National Wildlife Refuge.
Some visitors sent me this message: "Cheryl, These are the things we loved about your house: Peace and solitude. Retro charm. Homely feel. Fantastic beach. Climate. Spotlessly clean and fully equipped. Price. Genuine and helpful host. Great neighbours. The Big Chill, Easy Rider, Dances with Wolves, etc. etc. Thanks! No improvement necessary. I always carry a corkscrew." Guest Access A distant water view of the South Bay of the Laguna Madre, the only hypersaline lagoon in the nation and one of only six in the world. Interaction with Guests I am always available for questions. I especially love to hear first impressions since it is a very unique place. The Neighborhood Quirky, remote and very quiet.
