One can travel the entire arc of the Texas Gulf Coast without finding a rival to the quality of The Sanctuary. To start, at the center of this magnificent community is a 150-acre, private, member-owned, saltwater marina, one of the biggest in Texas, connecting the community with 3,000 miles of Intracoastal Waterway and close access to the deep-water fishing of the Gulf of Mexico. Entering the gates, members travel along a palm-lined drive to the “Amenity Island” where the larger yachts dock in protected wet slips. There are tennis and recreation facilities, and a luxuriously appointed clubhouse with a dockside lagoon-style pool fed by a cascading waterfall. Residents come from all over the country to enjoy their homes in this quiet coastal paradise.
