'Beach House' as she's known in the family, was purchased to accommodate visits for our ever growing family abroad. As with 'Love Shack' (#225951), 'Beach House' is now available for vacation rentals when not in use by our American-Norwegian brood. We take pride in creating comfortable spaces that foster easy interactions, relaxed living, and lasting memories for our family and now yours.

Gaard Egeland purchased this house in 2010

Sunny Beach simply offers the best of both worlds. We love the natural beauty of West End beaches but also appreciate the convenience of quick access to attractions like Schlitterbahn, Moody Gardens, great restaurants, and The Strand. That's why we insisted on Sunny Beach. A small beach community with an active HOA, Sunny Beach is clean, well maintained, and natural. The many full time residents here take care of each other and always have a friendly wave for our guest. You'll hate to leave as much as we always do.

'Beach House' boasts two wonderfully wide, ocean view decks on each level. Spanning the full length of the structure, these decks will beg you to enjoy your coffee outside while watching the sunrise, host an ice cream party for the kids, or step out of the master suite for a glass of wine at sunset. After a fun filled day at the beach, enjoy a tropical indulgence in our outdoor hot/cold shower.

When night falls, it's time to pop the popcorn, snuggle up on the comfy couches, and enjoy a movie or two on our 50' Sony flat screen TV.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 9, 2013
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
We had six adults in our party, along with three children under the age of 2. The house was wonderful-three bedrooms downstairs and a large, open living and kitchen space upstairs. There was plenty of room. The two large decks were beautiful and the house has a nice view of the beach. We loved that it was off of the busy part of the island. Restaurants, the Strand, and shops were just a short drive away. The house itself was beautiful-it was spotless, had plenty of extra linens, a large TV for rainy days, and the kitchen had every cooking gadget that could be needed. We greatly enjoyed our stay and were sad to leave!

Owner's Response: Thank you for all the compliments. I am thrilled you had a great time and enjoyed our beach house so much. We love the location also. It is the best of both worlds, a nice quiet neighborhood with a beautiful beach but only a few minutes drive to all the activities in Galveston. It is the closest subdivision on the west end to Galveston downtown. I hope to see you again next time you decide to visit our beautiful island.
Thank you

The house was just as advertised! Very clean and well stocked (but bring your own shampoo and bath soap). The beds were comfortable. We would stay there again!

We enjoyed the proximity of this beach house to the seawall and business district of Galveston. The location is not too far down on west beach which is a definite plus for those who want to access the sights of Galveston proper. Our entire group of eight would all stay in this house again. The owner is extremely approachable and was able to be reached on his cell phone. Hats off to this beach rental!

Fun Retreat at Sunny Beach

  • 5 of 5

  • Stayed: Oct 2013
This is a lovely house close to the beach and also to Galveston. There is plenty of light and space, and it is perfect for visiting and relaxing. The appliances all work perfectly, including the air conditioning and water pressure for showering. The second floor deck is a great area for hanging out with family/friends, or for getting great views of the water. I would highly recommend this lovely house for your next Galveston get-away. My family and I were very happy that we chose to rent this charming space in which to gather and have a wonderful time together.

Our annual get-away this year was made all the more comfortable by the attention to detail in this wonderful beach house "home away from home". Previous years have been spent on the coast of Mississippi, Florida and Alabama. Galveston Island has made a great comeback since "Ike" and offered a variety of activities: Awesome food, historical exhibits and buildings, entertainment, shopping, and of course - the beach.

Excellent location, responsive owner -- we would return to this Galveston home in a heartbeat !
