Overview

Galveston House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths tri-level, great layout, over 1500 sf deck, three level

This beachfront home has the best view of any home on the West End, yet close to the fun of downtown Galveston. Easy walk to Galveston State Park. Our beach has a private feeling and is very quiet (no cars are allowed to drive on beach thus no worries about the kids/dogs). Once you cross the bridge from the mainland you will find a unique experience. We feel like we are entering a different world when we visit our beachfront island home! Starting in 2014, the beach is raked weekly during the summer to keep the beach clean.

MISC: All photos are post Ike. We have rebuilt Summer Wind from head to toe after the hurricane. This home is set back, plenty of beach in front and only small dunes between you and the beach. Please note, the map illustration makes it appear there are lots in front of Summer Wind. This is not the case. This is a front row, ocean front home!

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered
  • wheelchair inaccessible

This place has everything you could imagine. Pack your clothes and that's all you need. Summer Wind has all the amenities needed to make your stay comfortable. Beds sleep comfortably, beach view throughout the entire home, and easy access to the beach. We will definitely stay here again, thanks John for being so prompt to accommodate our stay.

Teriffic house right on the beach...........

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house, right on the beach! It is updated and had plenty of room for the 6 of us. You can see the beach from every part of the living room and kitchen. It was also very quiet which was nice. The beds were comfortable, with nice linens and towels, and I felt like I was staying with a relative, not in a rental property. The owner was great, he answered any questions we had in a timely manner. Although it was cold in February, we still had a great time visiting different restaurants and the Pleasure Pier. We also cooked in the fully stocked kitchen. We plan on going back this summer. I recommend this house for sure!

John is so easy to work with. Always quick to respond. Everything was exactly as described. Incredible views! We had everything we needed and more! We had a wonderful time and only wish we had rented it for the full week instead of four days. Many thanks, John!

Galveston is eclectic, fun and one-of-a-kind. What makes it fun?

+ The beaches,

+ The Strand

+ Endless activities: ArtWalk, Music on the Strand, Movie Night on the Strand, etc...

+ Art Galleries (These are not your texas landscape art galleries!!!)

+ Watching the cruise ships come in

+ People watching on the Seawall

+ Enjoying a 1st Class dinner looking over the Gulf

+ Watching the dolphin play off your deck

+ Watching kids learn to surf in surf school

+ Or, watching the dolphin swim alongside you on the ferry ride to Bolivar

+ Chasing crabs at night with a flash light (# kid delighter)

+ Talking to the neighbors on the beach, some are always there...some are visiting just like you!

Lastly, do take a trip around the island and understand the depth of will and progress the islanders have made since Hurricane IKE, their intent is to make this a wonderful place for all to visit and escape your hectic lives
