GALVESTON BEACHFRONT VACATION HOME ON WEST BEACH

Galveston House Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 4

Fantastic view of the beach and gulf and only a few steps to the beach from this cozy, recently remodeled home. Reserve Azure Vista, our cozy beachfront retreat, and relax on the spacious wraparound deck and porch. We welcome small dogs and provide a gate so your pets can enjoy the deck along with you.

The home is bright and airy with many windows, cathedral ceilings, three new ceiling fans, an electric fireplace for cool evenings, high-speed Internet access and a flat panel satellite TV system. The leather sofa folds out to make a queen size bed and the bedroom has a king bed with a 20' flat panel TV. For your convenience, there is a full size range, dishwasher, new refrigerator and washer/dryer combo.

Area Description: Azure Vista a cozy, beach front, one bedroom, one bath house is the perfect getaway for a couple or small family seeking a vacation on the Texas Gulf Coast.

The house is pet friendly and up to two small dogs are welcome. There is a large wrap around deck and covered porch on which to enjoy the sunrise in the morning and have your dinner in the evening.

Azure Vista is located in the Palm Beach sub-division just 8 miles from 61st Street and the Sea Wall. We are on West Beach and are in between Pirates Beach and Pirates Beach West. Our house is the last one on Vista Blvd. on the west side of the street. The address is 4232 Vista Blvd. on the street sign but most maps, including Google, have is listed as Visa Road.

The city and state workers have sifted all of the sand on the West End beaches and cleared away any debris left behind by Ike. Rest assured, the beaches will be safe and clean for your vacation rental this season.

The Perfect Day at Azure Vista: Now, let me tell you how to spend the perfect day at Azure Vista. Go for an early morning run (or stroll) on the beach. Come back and enjoy a nice shower. Cook up some bacon and eggs in the fully equiped kitchen and sip some coffee on the covered porch.

Drive into town and pick up some bait, then come back and go fishing right outside on the beach. It should be pretty easy to catch dinner, but if you don't have any luck, hop in the car and drive down the road to Seven Seas Grocery. Bag up some big Gulf Shrimp from the ice filled cooler inside. These babies were swimming in the Gulf last night. If steak is your thing, this place has the best on the Island.

Bring back your groceries and fire up the Weber BBQ Grill. It alwasy tastes better by the beach. After dinner, relax for a couple of hours - or the rest of the night - it's already been a wonderful day. Or, go out to one of the beachside bars and sip some cold beer or drink a Margarita.

Why Galveston Island?: Located just 50 miles from Houston. Galveston Island is easy to reach from virtually anywhere in Texas, yet unlike any place else on the Gulf Coast. A unique and eclectic coastal town that combines high-brow and down home mixed with a little Texas attitude thrown in for good measure, Galveston is an island rich in history and charm.

An island all of its own, Galveston Texas is a hot destination for those seeking a getaway that encompasses everything from relaxing to participating in many adventurous activities. Fun events like Kitefest, Springfest and the biggest party of all, Mardi Gras, is Galveston’s forte. Shops, restaurants, miles of beaches, happening nightlife, great weather, and a wealth of history highlight only some of the fantastic Galveston tourist attractions. A huge list of things to do in Galveston Texas will keep visitors occupied throughout any visit, short or long.

Perfect!

The house has everything you could want and is as close to the beach as you can get. It was so nice waking up to the view of the waves each morning and sitting out on the deck in the evenings. We're definitely coming back!

Relax in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
Azure Vista is a little piece of paradise that has a perfect view of the mighty Gulf of Mexico. Everything you could possibly need is in the home ( except for your groceries of course). The owner, Marilyn, was very nice and very easy to communicate with. If you want serenity and a cozy place to stay for your next beach getaway, Azure Vista is your place. Our 4 legged girls also loved the gated deck to run around on and "talk" to all the other 4 legged furry babies all around. Palm Beach is a very quiet neighborhood with no traffic. We can't wait to go back!!

Unforgettable

  • 5 of 5
What can I say, when we pulled up we were so amazed at the beautiful view of the beach, and just how close it was. We woke up and were able to watch the waves from the very comfortable bed. The kitchen had everything we needed. The neighborhood was quiet and we were able to ride our bikes around. The wrap around porch was my favorite hangout spot. There were plenty of towels and extra amenities. It was just far enough from the Seawall but close enough to visit. Although we were not pleased with our visit to The Waterman, The Mosquito Grill and Patty Cakes (located right across the street) were very splendid!
Our memories will always live on with Azure Vista, as my now fiance proposed on the porch under the stars.
It is a perfect for a quick escape, but you won't want to leave!

Beautiful, relaxing and enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5
When we arrived in Galveston it was very easy to find per Marilyn and our GPS. Very pleasantly surprised when we pulled up to see a lovely home so close to the beach. I mean just steps, tiny little steps. The house itself is lovely and decked out with about anything you could want. Marilyn has cable, apple tv and a device to play your itunes on. Very clean, spotless refrigerator and stove/oven. There are so many things to do in Galveston and our home base was just right. We would head home from shopping or sightseeing and be so happy to get "home". The heaters worked very well, the hot water in shower was perfect as it was a bit chilly while we were there. We made it everyday to the Pier in Galveston and went to Katie's to choose our fresh catch from the fisherman who had just come in. Went home, fired up the Weber grill and had sumptuous meals each night. Honestly it was just what we needed, a nice get-a-way from Dallas. And Marilyn is a sweetheart, by the way.

Really a wonderful property to stay in!

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we contacted Marilyn for a last minute stay we were pleasantly surprised how smooth she made it. It's a lovely home just steps from the beach. Just west of all the bustle of Galveston beach proper, much more relaxing and private but with lots of room to do fun things. Our little dog loved the beach and the yard, she kept getting little burrs in her paws, so we were pulling out the prickles daily. Didn't dampen her spirit at all! The bed is super comfortable with lots of extra pillows and blankets, and heaters that worked perfectly. She has a DVD player, Apple TV (which we loved) and a music player for your smart phone. Kitchen had everything for us to go to the pier daily and meet the fishermen at Katie's to pick up our dinner for the night. There is a Weber kettle grill for your fresh catch. We will come again to stay at Azure Vista for sure!

Worth Every Penny

  • 5 of 5
I am a single mom with two children. This was the perfect place for us! Very comfortable and clean. All of the furnishings were built for family relaxation,
including the bed which had a memory foam topper. It is the perfect distance from the beach, with mostly families in attendance. There wasn't any necessary
utensils left out of the kitchen and the whole property is very well taken care of. It is just as it is portrayed online. The pictures don't really do it justice. I was very pleased with our stay here. I didn't have any conversation with Marilyn except by email, but she was thorough and answered all of my questions promptly. We will definitely stay here again if we come back to Galveston.
