Guestbook comments from the owner
We had such a wonderful time! I couldn't believe what an awesome view you have from both sides of the deck. My kids could not stop talking about how comfy their beds were and I couldn't agree more!! We definitely had all the comforts of home.

I came to Galveston in 1992 and fell in love with the healing sound of the surf, the soft sand, the breathtaking sunsets, the palm trees, the Victorian Architecture, the art galleries, and the Strand shopping. My husband and I remodel beach houses and historical homes and wanted a place extended family could stay when they visit. Galveston is a cultural jewel with a rich history. We are blessed that we can call Galveston Island home.

Linda purchased this house in 1999

Our family purchased the beach house as a place Mom and Dad could come stay when they visited. Mom and I totally remodeled this place to be a restful and fun place to stay with GREAT BEDS. Mom is very picky about beds... Our family has restored and remodeled homes for many years. This experience along with my interior design and art background made for a really unique and comfortable beachhouse. The beach has been a great place to find unique seashells and sharksteeth (but no sharks!) Palm Beach Galveston is almost like having your own private beach.

Awesome views from the huge deck. Very relaxing atmosphere. Exquisite underwater-look fish ceramic tile in the kitchen. Comfy beds with high quality soft linens. Hand painted Italian ceramic shell themed dishes, Enough colorful beachy melamine dinnerware for an indoor/outdoor buffet for family and friends. French doors that open up to the deck to enjoy the morning sunrise with your coffee.

NICE PLACE TO STAY WITH GOOD VIEWS.

  • 4 of 5
The beach house was exactly as described in the ad so no surprises there. The biggest surprise was the ridiculous amount of sea weed washing up onto the beach. There was so much that it acted as a barrier to getting to the water and stunk horribly. Efforts were made by the city to clear it but it just kept coming in. We will never visit Galveston again during this part of the year. There was also a rather large snake sighted on the dunes so do not ignore the warning signs along the beach. The snakes are real. We had the opportunity to meet the owners and they were very nice and have done a good job keeping the property in shape. The house is several miles from the main tourist area so it tends to be peaceful unless there are other renters partying in neighboring homes. The neighborhood appeared to be about 50% rental properties and there were some partiers that went on until the early morning hours but it wasn't a constant or a huge issue. Other minor issues that need some attention were 1) the stove is not level so stove top cooking was harder than it needed to be 2) there was an outdoor light that wasn't working in the lower parking area and 3) the clothes dryer did not work very well - our towels never got dry and we ended up just hanging them over the railing to dry. The property is a good value but buyer beware on the seasonal issues like the sea weed that we encountered.

WEEKEND GETAWAY WITH FAMILY

  • 5 of 5
Myself, 16 year old and 18 year old daughters, 3 year old grandson and husband wanted to take a quick weekend to the beach. This was the perfect place. It was outside of the hustle of the main seawall area in a nice quiet area, in short walking distance to the beach but still close enough that we could drive into town to eat, go to the Pier and to the waterpark easily. The house was lovely. It was well maintained, extremely clean and had every amenity of home. There were even beach toys for kids, chairs, an umbrella, etc. It was very peaceful which is exactly what I was looking for. I lost my sister very recently and needed a little time. The breeze on the decks were so lovely, I could have slept out there had there been lounge chairs. I would recommend it without hesitation.

EASTER GET-AWAY

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful Easter!! The house was fully stocked! From coffee to beach toys for the kids, even sandals for them (which we forgot)! The location of the beach house was perfect and the view of the ocean from the deck was picturesque!! To sum it up, we had a Blast!!

VERY NICE & COMFORTABLE

This property is just as described, very clean with great views. The kitchen has anything you need to cook while at the beach; everything we needed was there. Only suggestion I have, and this is coming from someone that likes the humming of a fan when sleeping, is that either a ceiling fan be added in the bedroom, or portable fan. The owners were very easy to communicate with and answered all of our questions. We love the Palm Beach area, it is very quiet. The house is only about a 2-3 minute walk to the beach. The fenced yard was wonderful for our Boston Terriers, they loved running around on the deck and up and down the stairs, and we did not have to worry about them getting out. Great house, location and owners. Love going into town and eating at Millers & Shrimp & Stuff. We also tried Nates on the West End this year, very good, but if you have a very large party be ready to wait a little while.

Owner's Response: We love our furry four legged "children" and have designed the fence and stairs and deck to accomodate even the smallest of them! We are looking forward to your return!

PERFECT SIZE FOR OUR FAMILY

  • 5 of 5
We truly enjoyed our 6 nights at this comfy home. The beds were great, the home had about everything we needed and the beach was so very close. While Palm Beach doesn't clear seaweed, it was only about a 100 foot walk to Pirate's Beach, next door, which does. The neighbors we met in this small community were very nice, and there was plenty to do indoors with puzzles, games and the DVD player available.

My only suggestion to the owners, in line with what the last reviewer mentioned, was to check in on the condition of a few things, the barbeque grill was about to fall apart (we ran to Walmart and bought our own) and many of the plastic tables/chairs outdoors were no longer stable. I imagine that beach house upkeep is non-stop, so perhaps we just caught y'all in between some updates.

Overall, I would highly recommend this home!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay! Thanks for the comments! Yes, the sea, salt, and sand are tough on anything that is outside. Time flies by so quickly and where we think things should last more than a year or two we find that owning on the beach is constant maintenance and upgrades. But we love our little place on the beach and will be shopping for new deck furniture and new charcoal grill this week. Come back soon!

FAMILY VACAY

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed the house, its closeness to the beach and cleanliness. The air conditioning and ceiling fans were a top priority and were deemed excellent. Everything is as advertised. Small suggestions would be to replace charcoal grill and purchase two new non-stick cooking pans (medium and large). All other cooking utensils and pans were extremely adequate for our stay.
