Galveston House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-9)

Welcome to 'Ike's Revenge'. As you might have guessed, besides having a colorful exterior, this home has a colorful history. Damaged by Hurricane Ike in 2008, this impressive Sunny Beach home has been totally remodeled and professionally decorated (March 2011). It's a perfect retreat, totally equipped with almost everything imaginable to make your Galveston vacation a pleasant, memorable experience.

The home features 2 bedrooms, 2 baths and a loft. 2 story vaulted ceilings and an abundance of windows will make your beach experience all that much more enjoyable. Kick back in an Adirondack chair and enjoy your morning coffee or afternoon libation on the oversized deck with views of the Gulf of Mexico which is a short 2 blocks away.

Don't forget to check out the outdoor shower.......it's amazing!

Sunny Beach is the perfect location on the West End. Located at FM 3005 and 8 Mile Road, it's the first beach community west of the Seawall which makes it the most convenient beach community to Galveston attractions, restaurants and shopping. You really can't beat the location.

I'm an overworked Realtor from Austin that can only relax at the beach. It's just a shame I have to drive 3 1/2 hours to enjoy my little paradise on the beach.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

I have been vacationing on Galveston's West End for 30 years. Same old 12 friends telling the same old stories over and over. I wouldn't have it any other way. It's our twice a year 'Big Chill' weekend. Other than those two big weekends, I totally love my other times to the beach either just by myself or with a few friends.

Galveston is truly a gem. There is so much history and fun things to do here. That's why I bought my house. It's the best of both worlds.....rustic beaches close to fun.

Sunny Beach was my first choice because it's so easy to get anywhere......attractions, restaurants, grocery stores.

Galveston has become such a great culinary town. The restaurants are amazing. Get to know the local places.

You will never get bored. Schlitterbahn, Moody Gardens, The Flight Museum, Historical homes, The Strand for great shopping, Golf & Spas are just some of the other things to do when not enjoying the beach. Also, it seems like Galveston has one event after another such as Mardi Gras, Dickens on the Strand, The Festival of Lights, Biker Weekend and more parades than any single town should have. Get out and enjoy everything she has to offer!

CLEAN, ADORABLE, WALK TO THE BEACH

  • 5 of 5
Visited with my husband and our teens, as well as another couple. This place was clean, had everything we needed, was the perfect size for us and not too far to walk to the beach. We will come back!

THANKFUL FOR THANKSGIVING IN GALVESTON!

  • 5 of 5
We spent our Thanksgiving holiday in Galveston at Ikes Revenge, it was wonderful! We had plenty of space for all 8 of us and enjoyed the very comfortable and well equipped accomodations. There was a lot of cooking going on, the kitchen is fabulous. Comfy sofas, flat screen tv's and 3 decks - we enjoyed it all! The beach was beautiful this time of year and the weather could not have been any nicer.

Owner's Response: Thanks Heather. I'm glad you had a fun time. The beach is so pretty in the off season. They are cleaner and hardly any people on the beach. It's my favorite time of the year to be down there.

HOME SWEET BEACH HOME!

  • 5 of 5
Ike's Revenge is a little slice of beach heaven! My girlfriends and I stayed for the weekend and it was not long enough, we truly did not want to leave. The house is so adorable, definitely the nicest beach house I have stayed in. The decor is flawless, warm, and inviting. We felt we were at home from the moment we stepped foot inside! The house is very well kept! You can tell everything is newly renovated and kept very clean.

The beach is right down the road, very short walk! We had a great time strolling along the coast taking in the beautiful weather! The house is also close to lots of great places to eat, drink, and be merry! We are already planning our next trip! Hopefully this time more than just 2 days! We can't wait!

COMPLETELY CHARMING AND IMPECCABLE!

  • 5 of 5
Ike’s Revenge is warm, cozy, and inviting. The impressive décor flows seamlessly from room to room. The loft arrangement is really a master touch—it’s there if you need it to accommodate your crowd, but if you don’t, then it’s just quietly tucked above. This stunning beach house was the perfect home base for our Galveston getaway, traveling with two teens. Sunny Beach beckoned to us throughout the days (sunshine and a light, cool breeze is a hard-to-beat combo) and into the evenings. We also enjoyed spending time at Moody Gardens and the Strand. We had an amazing stay and I can’t recommend this property highly enough!

BEST DECOR OF ALL BEACH HOUSES IN GALVESTON

  • 5 of 5
This is a beach HOME not a beach house. The decor is amazing and very home-like. You will find that you actually look forward to coming back to this house as much as you enjoy the sights, sounds and attractions of Galveston and life near the beach. Though not front row, the house has beach views and is a mere stone's throw from the ocean. It is well decorated and pleasing to the eye. My husband says " I could live here year round!". It is just adorable. You can feed quite a few with this large, well equipped kitchen that has all you could want or need. The deck is awesome. The loft is perfect for a group of kiddos (or playful adults!). Great master bedroom! Most importantly, the master has TV and can be darkened for great sleeping. Of course, the living room has a large flat panel television as well as a very comfortable couch. I give it 5 stars!

Owner's Response: Thank you Sheri. My sister is a professional decorator in Florida and I have to give her credit for doing such a great job. Just like your husband, I could live there year round too!
