About Gaard Egeland
Family owned property in Galveston Texas
Gaard Egeland purchased this house in 2008
Why Gaard Egeland chose Galveston
What started as a winter retreat for Norwegian family members, the 'Love Shack' has become a cherished family getaway for all. The famous Galveston Island 'magic' can be felt throughout her sturdy walls and original 1913 wooden floors. Weathering Ike with only minimal exterior bumps and bruises, Love Shack is now more beautiful than ever with a new whitewashed picket fence, deck, and lush front garden. Galveston has become our home away from home.
What makes this house unique
The recent outdoor addition of a large private deck and beautiful landscaping have made weekends even more enjoyable. Grab the floats and towels for a quick stroll to the beach in the morning where the 37th street pier and life guard stand makes for a safe and fun family spot. That evening, return with beach chairs for a beautiful sunset colored sky to remember. The east end Seawall offers a wide variety of entertainment and dining options within easy walking distance of the Love Shack. You can also walk to the new pleasure pier. Leave the car in the garage for a night of fun on the Galveston Seawall!
