|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
We are only 150 feet from the beach on a dead end street. Super fishing, swimming and shell gathering. We have 2 kayaks for your use. The ramp (not ADA) allows seniors or elderly pets access to the house.
2beachfun in Palm Beach that does not allow MOTOR vehicles on the beach. We are on a dead end road to the beach with 2 protected views to the East and South. Our deck has some shade all day. The deck is accessed by a ramp and stairs with a gate on each to keep small children and pets safe on the deck.
This year we completely remodeled our house installing a solid vinyl plank floor, repainted the inside of the house, installed new plumbing fixtures in the baths and added 3 new bedrooms making a total of 4 bedrooms.A new grill on the garden covered patio, a new electric range with convection oven, new microwave, new washer and dryer are off the hall inside the house new 22 inch and 37 inch TVs with Dish. We have a very quiet dishwasher that is quieter than two people talking, a Kitchen Aid refrigerator/freezer with ice maker. We have an extra refrigerator and freezer in the ground floor storage area that is accessible to you for more cool storage space.
We have all the dishes, pots and pans that we need for ourselves to use the house. There are two coffee pots. One is 12 cups and one is 4 cup. We even leave the spices out for you. We are not lacking anything in the house. We have ceiling fans in all the bedrooms, kitchen - dining and living areas. We installed new hurricane proof windows and doors which makes the house very quiet inside.
We have large windows in all the rooms so the house is bright and cheery. The cathedral ceiling in the living area of the house makes it feel very large. The dining table will seat 8 with 5 more at the large bar.
We furnish all linens and cleaning is included in the rent. Paper products are furnished. We have 2 kayaks for your use.
We have TWO separate Air Conditioning systems so you will be cool in the house.
We live here in the winter season from Oct until May each year. We do spend Thanksgiving and Christmas with our grandchildren so if you are interested in a beach holiday check our calender.
We CAN ACCEPT ON LINE CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS.
My wife and I built this house for ourselves. In 1996. Everyone just loves our house. There is nothing we would change after having used it for 18 years. We live here in the Oct to May season full time. We leave in the fall for a few weeks to spend time with our grandchildren so if you are interested in a holiday visit to the beach check our calender as I keep it up to date.
Charles Calvin purchased this house in 1996
We built the house because we could not find a house that was right for us. It is close in to Galveston with great views and a short one minute walk to the very wide beach.
This house works well for one or two or three couples couple or a large family. The large deck of about 800 square feet will give everyone room outside. The neighborhood is very quiet. The ground floor garden area (700 sq ft in size) has several tables and about 7 chairs with a rocking couch. This area is always cool, but we did not know that when we put in the two ceiling fans which we never use. There is an out door (hot and cold water) shower in the garden area also. There is a hammock, 6 or 8 chairs, a rocking chair that seats 2, and several tables. We have a charcoal grill for cooking and BBQ.
We like to sit here in the afternoon shade and enjoy the breezes off the water.
Thanks for having us. We had a very nice time here.
Your fireplace flue is rusted in the open position.
Thank you very much for telling me about the flue. I fixed it as soon as I got your note. We hope you will come again.
We really enjoyed our stay.
Just returned from a girl's weekend in this house and it was so much fun. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook fabulous meals and it is so spacious. There were seven of us and we were able to all sit around the table and never felt crowded.
We took lots of walks on the beach and it was so close being only about half a short block up. Our little dog also liked his walks down to the beach and the ramp going down the side of the house made it so much easier to maneuver. Gametime and movietime were also lots of fun with the awesome round table and the big tv with comfy chairs and sofa to snuggle up in.
Great house for a family with kids. There are gates that can be locked at both openings to the terrific deck with the beautiful views of the gulf. Since it was rather chilly, we sat on the cozy sofa inside and still had a view of the beach in two directions.
We were here during Mardi Gras weekend and the neighborhood was so quiet and we felt like we were the only ones at the beach this weekend! We didn't go to any restaurants or shopping but having been to Galveston before, I know both are plentiful.
I'm already gathering another group of friends to go down for a weekend this spring and the family to take a trip this summer.
You won't be disappointed if you rent this one.
A big thanks to the owners for everything. You were great to work with.
We had a marvelous time with our family over the Labor Day weekend and we highly recommend. The sweet house and amenities are exactly as described plus the Owner's were great. Location is perfect and neighbors very friendly. Sitting out on the deck with a cup of coffee or libation with the gulf breezes gently blowing was so relaxing. Kids have already asked when we are returning & we look forward to returning next year! Thanks to both of you for sharing your lovely home.....
2Beachfun was a great place for a vacation for my family. It was comfortable for my family (three young kids), my sister and two of her kids, and my parents (the ramp was great for my mom to get up and down), and their small dog. The owner was prompt in responding to inquiries. The place was nice and clean (It got my wife's approval, and she is very particular about cleanliness). Lots of toys for kids to play with in the sand. No problem connecting to the internet. A big Thank You to the owner!
My extended family and I stayed in this house the first part of June 2014. It is a great, well decorated house in a good location, despite it being some distance back from the beach. HOWEVER, our deposit check was not returned as the owner received information from the cleaning service that we had left "excessive sand" in the home (which is a beach house) and had damaged their microwave. The microwave was in the condition we found it, when we left and we swept the floors daily. Unfortunate that people have to do this but, IF I rent a home again, I will take pictures of all the possible damaged items, so we can not be blamed for the damage!!! I attempted to contact the owner several times through the VRBO service and by direct email and it took him a very long time to respond. It also concerned me that the deposit check was cashed at the same time the rental check was, immediately upon him receiving it, almost 2 months prior to our scheduled trip. If you do rent, PLEASE buy the extra travel insurance or don't count on receiving your deposit check back!!!
This home was very clean, and only steps away to the beach. The description given on vbro was accurate. The living kitchen and dining areas were all open allowing for our group to have space for eating, playing games and hanging out. The owners left a helpful binder of Galvestons attractions and nearby restaurant menus and answered all our questions readily. We had 3 children under 4 and two sets of parents and the layout worked really well for sleeping and privacy with the baths and bedrooms plus den. The deck was child proof with gates and a convenient ramp for rolling coolers and luggage to second floor. The view of the ocean was awesome! We had a fabulous trip!
This was a family vacation for myself (my 6 year old), my sister (her 11,8,4 year olds), and my mother. This house was perfect for us. We were able to walk to the beach, where we left our chairs and shade up for the time we were there. We played on the beach, we "ghost" crabbed in the evening, and loved every minute we were in this house. The outdoor shower was perfect!! I want one at home for the mud my child gets into! The blue chairs on the deck were perfect for this avid reader and and the TV's with DVR were perfect for recording a few kids shows for them to watch while resting up for the next fun!! The beds were fabulous, clean and comfy!! The kitchen was perfect for us. The kids had the bar while the mom's took the table. What a great thing to have the washer and dryer, nothing like throwing in a load of towels and swimsuits to be ready for the next day at the beach!! The kids LOVED having a "box" full of toys to use, nothing like having some NEW things to go through!! I would recommend this home to anyone, it was WONDERFUL!!!
2beachfun is in Palm Beach subdivision. Most homes are smaller than ours with about 1/3 occupied by full time residents. We are less than a minute walk to the beach on a dead end street so it is safe for children to walk to the beach. No vehicle traffic on our very wide beach.
The beach itself is beautiful for finding treasures like shells that wash up from the sea. There is mostly fine sand with shells interspersed. In the summertime, the water around Galveston is warm. During certain weeks throughout the year, beach goers will see a line of seaweed that has washed up on the beach. Seaweed is not always there and is not the norm, but it is natural and just a part of the beach ecosystem. It is partially responsible for building up the beach and dunes that we all enjoy.
Our house is all on one floor. We are very close to all the activities in Galveston. It only takes about 15 minutes to get to the Strand and downtown Galveston.
