A new development promises luxury life to those looking to hop aboard one of Texas’ buzziest coastal destinations. The Residences at Tiki Island is a 70-unit condominium development. Completion is anticipated in summer 2024 with two-four-bedroom condominium homes, ranging from 1,200 to more than 3,000 square feet. The top two floors will feature two-story penthouses with elevators included in the floor plans.
- Waterfront villas will feature dumbwaiters to help owners transport groceries and packages from their cars into their homes. With weather obviously a concern (given Tiki’s water-facing location), each villa will have a backup generator.
- These Tiki residences are expected to have access to a state-of-the-art fitness center, a resort-style pool, an outdoor kitchen, and lounge area, and even a dog park. The community promises to be a golfcart-friendly community, with a boat valet for easy water access, as well as striking bay views.
- The development will include a waterfront restaurant, ship store, boathouse, and two hundred marina slips. Prices start from the $800s.
