Overview

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.

Just what I needed!

  • 5 of 5

What a treasure this house is! I spent a lovely week in early May at Azure Vista. It was a restful, quiet place, with just the sounds of the ocean as a backdrop. 

It's a well-outfitted house: TVs in living room and bedroom, washer/dryer, grill, plenty of bath towels, comfy bed. And I had everything I needed in the kitchen. (Tip for those who like to cook: Galveston has a small but interesting farmers market at Post Office and 25th. And here's a tip for those who like to eat: I really enjoyed my shrimp and oyster po'boy at the Ocean Grille and Beach Bar, a new place that opened at the eastern end of the Seawall. They have an alfresco, round bar there, too, out front -- it looked like a fun place to hang out.) 

The view at Azure Vista is fantastic, and the deck is the perfect place to bliss out -- I spent a lot of time just staring at the water and letting my mind wander...

Thank you, Marilyn! I hope to return soon! -- Elizabeth A.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for letting us know of your pleasant stay at Azure Vista. We always appreciate the feedback and strive to keep our property in tip top shape for the enjoyment of our guests. When you step up on that deck and see the view and then open the door and walk in you just say ahhhh... this is where I want to be! That is our goal. Hope to see you back again Elizabeth.

What a Beach House should be

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Azure Vista. What a great little beach house! It's literally 50 feet to the beach, it has a great unobstructed view to the East to watch the sunrise and moonrise over the water. Inside we found everything we needed for our stay. Since it was February, we got to enjoy the electric fireplace, which was fun. All the amenities worked as advertised: wifi, cable, netflix, etc. The house is 6 miles from town, the Seven Seas market is close, the neighborhood is quiet and friendly. We walked our dog a lot, and boy, he made us lots of new friends. Marilyn was a pleasure to work with, very helpful. I hope you enjoy your stay at Azure Vista as much as we did. Highly recommended.

Awesome beach house!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at Azure Vista. Excellent location, steps to the beach and a great view. Windows open at night, sound of the surf right out front - therapy! We had planned to visit local restaurants but took the advice from Azure Vista's owners and headed to Seven Seas grocery right up the road - picked up fixings for burgers and shrimp one night, steak and shrimp the next. Couldn't get any better. We will be back. Thanks!

Couldn't Get Any Better!!

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived it was like the west end of the island had a very special welcoming with arms wide open. The sky was gorgeous that night as we sat out on the deck. You cannot ask for a better "home" away from home. Although we did not cook anything at the house...it was well equipped with just about anything you needed. The view was outstanding - with coffee and breakfast out on the deck every morning to the walks on the beach daily. You just can't go wrong with this place. Coming from Iowa - we just fell in love with the area and the "island living" and want to return to Azure Vista when possible. Marilyn was very easy to work with and if you had a question response time was quick. It just couldn't have gotten any better!

Great Location!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this great little cottage. It was so close to the beach that I'm forever spoiled now! Perfect size for the two of us and we had a great beach wedding and honeymoon. Loved sitting on the deck at night enjoying the ocean breeze and watching shooting stars. Has all the comforts of home. Can't wait to come back!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

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!
