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!

The house and location were great!! There were nine of us and we were all very comfortable and would all love to rent this place again!
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!
This was our second stay and was equally as good as the first. Incredible views, spacious beach house and all the imenities of home. We definitely plan on coming back next year.
The view alone is worth every dollar spent. The house was exactly as described, and the beach was literally out the front windows. You've got miles of beach in both directions, and very minimal human traffic. Ideal. We can't wait to stay here again!
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
