Remote Work and Study on the Texas Gulf Coast

As the pandemic continues to persist into the late summer and fall months, many of us are adjusting to the “new normal” of working or attending classes from home. Whether you live in a big city where you can’t step out of your front door without a face mask, or you need something different from the same four walls you’ve been working remotely from for months — it’s getting to be time for a change. 

Why not seize this opportunity and spend a month — or more! — on the gorgeous Texas Gulf Coast? 

You might be thinking that a getaway to the beach sounds like a great idea — but the avalanche of remote work and schooling that your family is under is immense. The thought of breathing in the crisp offshore breezes, sinking your toes into the sugary sand, and swimming in the warm ocean water is so tempting. But now that virtual school has started back up there’s simply no way your family can swing it.

Relax and Recharge — Remotely

What if we told you there was a way to swing it? Another way to navigate this strange time… a better way? A way to get all your remote work done, and still have time to hit the beach in the afternoons. A way to show up for all the Zoom calls and the school sessions, while having a breathtaking view of the ocean from your workspace. A way to walk outside to your private oceanfront deck and safely take a deep breath of clean, fresh ocean air— without a mask. 

Sounds like a dream, right?

With a little help from BeachBox, it’s 100% possible. In fact, many of our guests are working remotely from our beachfront vacation rental homes right now. You can even stay a month or longer at some of our most popular homes on the Texas Gulf Coast. With lightning-fast WiFi, multiple smart TVs, flexible workspaces, gorgeous views, and lots of privacy, our homes have quickly become the perfect escape from the pandemic. 

If you’re dreaming of a working holiday on the Texas Gulf Coast, BeachBox has the ideal spot for your family. Take a peek inside some of our homes, and imagine yourself working from one of these gorgeous spaces. And when the work is done, you can sink your toes into the sand and let all your social-distancing stress wash away with the tides.
