Overview

Galveston House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 bath sleeps 6-10, with fabulous wetlands/bay view

'Sunset Nest' is known for its captivating 180 degree unobstructed views of the bay and the most breathtaking sunsets. Every evening you can gather your friends and family around the outdoor bar/entertainment area to enjoy the sunsets as a group or you can steal away to either of 2 balconies upstairs for a more intimate viewing.

We just bought this house in 2012 (we own 2 other vacation rental homes -- please check VRBO 104474 and 296255 to see feedback from our happy guests). We've enjoyed adding new furniture, appliances, dishes, linens and artwork, but have found the most stunning decoration to be the ever-changing water view out the windows -- visible from the main room and every bedroom!

There is a well-stocked kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances plus coffee-maker, toaster, blender, 2 sets of dishes, new set of high end pots and pans, and all necessary flatware and utensils.

Amenities include Wi-Fi and premium HDTV cable channels. The comfy living room has a 55' LCD TV with Blu-Ray home theater system There is a 30' flat screen TV in the master bedroom. Each of the 3 bedrooms has a queen size bed, and there is also a queen size sleeper in the living room and a full futon in the master bedroom suite.

Birders, fishing enthusiasts, beach combers, kayakers, and anyone who loves the richness of life along a saltwater marsh will love this house!

About Bob or Jane Arbeitman

We own 2 other houses on Galveston's west end have been sharing our homes as vacation rentals since 2007

We first came to Galveston from our home in Austin, to escape Cedar Fever season, and have been coming back ever since at various times of year -- enjoying the wonderful people and 'island pace' of life.

Bob or Jane Arbeitman purchased this house in 2012

Why Bob or Jane Arbeitman chose Galveston

We love Jamaica Beach and the full-time residents, who combine small-town friendliness with big city sensibilities (many are Houston escapees -- weekend residents or retirees).

What makes this house unique

We first saw this house at sunset and fell in love. We noticed that everybody out walking or parking their car to look at the sunset view was in front of this cute house for sale -- it really does have the best view around!

After we bought it we fell in love with watching mullets skip a line across the saltwater marsh out front, and learning to identify the huge variety of birds outside our door. We also were staggered by the size of the fish that folks pulled out of the marsh in front of our house (again, if you look up and down the road you only see waders fishing right in front of our house!).

Relaxing!!

  • 5 of 5
Talk about relaxing!! We found everything we needed here to make our weekend away fun and with all the comforts of home. Awesome patios to gather on and enjoy the weather. Beautiful sunsets, and lots of birds with the bay view. We can't wait to go back real soon!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
I know this sounds cliche...but...the pictures do not do it justice. My family stayed here for a long weekend and it was absolutely perfect. The location is quite convenient because it allows you to run around and enjoy all of the sites during the day and retreat back to the calm, peaceful serenity of the house. An added bonus is that the neighbors in the community were so nice and friendly. This is definitely something that we'll try to do every year!

We love Sunset Nest

  • 5 of 5
This property is very well maintained. The house is clean and charming. The location is absolutely perfect - it is right at the end of the street with unobstructed views of the marsh. We enjoyed sitting on the patio and watching the birds and the gorgeous sunsets. We enjoyed walking our dog through the pretty neighborhood. There is a great local restaurant, Michael's Burgers, with really good food and a German flair. Jamaica Beach is a lovely little city.

This property is close to Galveston Island State Park, so it was easy to enjoy a morning of birding there. We also drove into Galveston to enjoy the Strand and eating out. Joe's Crab Shack has some great food. The bucket of crab legs, and the crab cake Caesar salad were great!

This home was a pleasure!! The description was accurate. The owners were very pleasant and communicated all the necessary information. I would definitely recommend it to a friend.

Birthday Weekend

  • 5 of 5
I contacted the owners of this wonderful home because I wanted to surprise my wife for her birthday. The photos do not do this home justice. Everything was great and comfortable. The community was outstanding and the views priceless. We come to the area for weekend getaways often and hope to spend time at this residence again.
I would suggest this home to anyone seeking a relaxing getaway.

Galveston House Renters

We stayed at the Sunset Nest in July 2013 and we loved it. We stayed in a different house last year and my Aunt stayed in a different house this July and we really loved Sunset Nest because it was clean, neat and well stocked. Much better stocked than the house my Aunt rented this year. The refrigerator in the house my Aunt rented didn't keep things cold. I can tell you we didn't experience anything wrong with any of our appliances at Sunset Nest. If we go back to Galveston next year we will be calling the owners of this house again. Also the sunsets were fabulous from this location.
