This home is breathtaking! Elegant, yet VERY comfortable, and absolutely amazing!! The picture from the deck does not even begin to convey how beautiful the view is!! The owners have taken extra special care to ensure you feel welcome and have accommodations that make your stay delightful. All the comforts of home! An enclosed outdoor shower with hot and cold water close to the base of deck stairs is perfect when you come back from the beach or fishing, and you are sandy and want to wash off. You can rinse yourself and your shoes and leave them right outside the living room door. The beds are very comfortable and the bedding is wonderful too. The kitchen is ready, just bring food and storage containers for leftovers! The owners provide a list to help remind you of what you need to bring, and even made a cookbook with their story and wonderful recipies. When you wake up in the mornings and walk into the front living room, you are greeted by the sunshine and waves streaming through the ceiling to floor windows. Washer and dryer are so nice to keep bedding, towels and bathing suits clean, and cut down on your post vacation laundry! Outside from the deck, you can enjoy the dolphins jumping and the pelicans diving for fish. The dolphins came around many times!! You can even fish right off the top deck. The first night we were there, we enjoyed watching a storm off in the distance. There was a wonderful cool breeze with the waves crashing below our feet on the rocks directly below the deck. The second night we could see stars galore, two fireworks shows way off in the distance from Pleasure pier, someone very close by was having a very impressive private fireworks display, and we saw 4 shooting stars!! It was magical! Galveston and the seawall and shopping are across the bridge which is very close to the subdivision. If you look to the left off the top deck - my boyfriend broke part of a very large rock to make a heart shape for me! He said it could also serve as a thank you to the owners for providing such a wonderful experience! I would highly recommend this home to ANYONE. We did not want to leave!
