LITERALLY ON THE BEACH! BOOKING FAST / PET FRIENDLY - HAS WIFI!

Galveston House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms/1 Bath Sleeps 8! WIFI - Quiet Beach - Dog Friendly!!!

Absolute Beachfront is Literally On The Beach!

The second you go down the stairs you are on sand. You can wake up to a floor to ceiling view of the ocean and gaze on the exclusive beach - it will almost feel like your own. New granite countertops and adjoined by glass backsplash with soothing tones. Dolphin sighting are common and once in a while people riding Arabian horses. Plenty of beach for you to throw the ball if you should have a dog. The house is only 7 minutes from stores, shops, grocery, restaurants and only 10 minutes from famous Pleasure Pier. You can rent kayaks, bicycles etc, but in your private storage room there are numerous Adirondack chairs for underneath while barbecuing (charcoal), chairs to bring on to the beach, boogie boards and tons of beach toys, fishing rod and kites.

Everything you need is there! Pots, pans, utensils, blender, toaster, dishes, knives, cutting boards, chip/dip set, wine glasses, water glasses etc.

The stairs are solar lit for going up and down the stairs in the evening.

There is a private cabana shower (both hot and cold water) and fireplace for romantic nights. Galveston has beautiful museums, ghost tours, boat and fishing excursions, horseback riding (which you can do on the beach off season) dolphin sighting tours and numerous parades, both themed for adults and children alike.

When you arrive a book explaining all to do is there for you so you can pour through, making it simple and easy to decide.

We provide a gift bag of stuff just to get you comfortable, such as paper towels, toilet paper, soap, dish washing soap and other toiletries to make your arrival more comfortable.

You have your personal driveway and can easily hold more than one car - up to four(!), so if you have a boat it should be easy to hold. Because the house it at the end of a cul-de-sac is absolutely no house to your left - all you see is ocean.

Just minutes away you can rent kayaks, bicycles and HUGE crazy kites

NOTE: If you should want to bring your furry friend(s), please note that only two are allowed, there will be a non-refundable fee per pet of $100 each.Two is the maximum. I'm sorry, we cannot accept cats.We cannot accept cats.

PROOF OF SHOTS FOR YOUR DOG ARE REQUIRED.

Please note:

Rates are subject to additional charges including tax, cleaning, linens / insurance.

NOTE: Summer Peak Season (Start June 1st) rentals are Monday to Monday only please, as the demand is so great!

We are the property owners and unlike most property management companies, we truly care about your experience. We visit the property regularly to make sure that all the little details and addressed and make the welcome bags ourselves.

This is one of the most affordable properties that are right on the water. There is no obstruction so you see right out into the waves. The house has been extensively refurbished and it is extremely private. You can frequently see dolphins from the house and occasionally Arabian horses. It is only 10 minutes away from Pleasure Pier and 7 minutes away from restaurants and outdoor activities, but in 7 minutes you are back at home with peace and quiet.

You can watch the sunset in the swing below, or enjoy just sitting with a floor to ceiling view of the ocean on the couch. Two huge sliding glass doors open so you can have the ocean air or you can put on the fireplace which is really romantic. In the morning you literally prop up and see ocean waves.

WE LOVED THIS PLACE

  • Stayed: Feb 2014
My husband surprised me with this and this place was so great!

So sunny and bright - very clean and I liked that I could keep an eye on my kids from the deck. Internet and cable was nice as I had to wrap up some business the first day and I hear that some Galveston homes don't provide that, Made my life easier.

Easy to get to, and we liked all the goodies in the storage room. Owners were very accessible and nice WAY different front dealing with a property management company. (We had that last time).

I recommend this place - hands down.

Best Vacation House in Galveston - Hands Down

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 11, 2014
  • Stayed: Feb 2014
The house was just as described - actually in my opinion better. It feels big. The owners left a book of all that there is to do which was a help as we used to Galveston a lot before (we had moved away) and there is so much more to do it helped us catch up.
Very clean house, owners were helpful - beautiful views and practically no one on the beach. .

SOOOOOO going back!

Great house! LOTS of light. When they say they are right on the beach they are not kidding!
Washer and dryer in house was very helpful, if you get the master you get to wake up to a view of the ocean - pretty cool.

BEST PLACE WE HAVE EVER STAYED IN GALVESTON

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 15, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2013
We love Galveston. Have stayed a number of times but this is our favorite for the following reasons:

1. Everywhere you look there is a beautiful view.
2. While it was not enormous it felt like it was (we had 8 people and we were fine).
3. (my favorite) close enough to everything but far enough that when you are at the house you feel like it's your own. (We stayed at a place last year past Jamaica Beach, and getting to everything was a whole event).
4. Got to bring our terrier!
5. Also, it was affordable. Actually, this was the best price for beachfront that we could find.

Just great!
Owner's Response: We are glad you had such a great time!

If you come back know that we are always there for you for anything - hopefully the goodie bag made your stay comfortable!

The house is small, but so well laid out that there was plenty of room for everyone. The views are sweeping!! The house was clean. WiFi was great and the TV had about a million channels. The washer/dryer was very handy...we didn't expect to use it at all, but we did all our laundry while we were relaxing, and came home with all clean clothes. That was sure nice! The area was very quiet, which we loved. The house is on a section of beach that does not allow cars, which was a plus. We LOVED bringing our dogs along to this house. They had a great time romping on the beach and chasing birds. We would not hesitate one bit to stay here again.
