About Gaard Egeland

'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

Why Gaard Egeland chose Galveston

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.

What makes this house unique

'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.

Awesome Beach House

  • 5 of 5
This was a wonderful house for a short or long get-a-way. There were 7 of us ladies and we were out and about during the day and gathered together for happy hour on the top deck with an amazing view. Dinner was always in-house to continue our camaraderie. We all love to be a part of the preparation of dinner. The location of this house is perfect as it affords you to be in town within 10 minutes to experience the shops and restaurants in the Strand area. The house has great attention to detail and is very comfortable. I would imagine this house would also lend itself to be a great guys weekend get-a-way. "Dudes on the beach" or "gone fishing".

Owner's Response: I am very happy you enjoyed your long weekend in Galveston. I appreciate all the compliments. The house has a great location, so close to all the action on the Seawall and downtown but yet far enough out to have incredible views and away from the noise. The open floor plan makes it easy to prepare meals and socialize at the same time. I hope to see you next time you plan a trip to our beautiful island.

Beautiful home, great location

  • 5 of 5
Our group consisted of two adults, an 8-yr-old and two teenage boys. We have been to Galveston several times in the past few years. We chose this home for our Galveston Island family vacation after reviewing literally dozens of other options. We were not disappointed! The location is very close to all of the attractions on Seawall Blvd, yet far enough away to relax, enjoy the quiet away from the crowds, and take in the gulf view on one of the two large decks. We could either drive or walk to the beach, which is very convenient. I enjoyed the neighborhood, which seemed very family oriented. The master bathroom is fabulous, as is the jacuzzi tub. It was nice to take a long bath after a day of fun in the sun. And there are more than enough extra towels on hand, which I thought was a big plus. The size of the house is perfect, not too big, not too small, and it had everything we needed to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Gaard was just a phone call or email away if we needed anything at all. Thank you, Gaard, for your wonderful accommodations!

Great house, easy walk to the beach

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house for our annual girls weekend trip. There were 9 of us one night, 8 of us the rest of the weekend. It fit us well. We love being all together so we can visit so the bedrooms downstairs and living rm upstairs was great! The house was very clean, A/C worked great, and a very easy 5 min walk to the beach. Owner is very easy to work with and communicate with. Would rent from him again!!

Wonderful Stay at an Excellent Beach House

  • 5 of 5
My family rented this wonderful beach house for a week to celebrate the 4th of July. My children (ages 5, 3 and 5 months) had a blast. The big kids loved the bunk beds and the master bedroom had plenty of space for us to set up a pack-n-play for the baby. The house was beautiful, well kept, clean and bright. We had everything we needed for a great stay. The house was within short driving distance to great shops, restaurants and tourist attractions. It was also an extremely short walk to the beach. We will certainly be returning in the future.

Girls weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5
The women in my family decided we needed a girls weekend away and rented this beautiful house for the weekend. There were 5 of us from 28 to 75 years old and everyone had a wonderful time. The views were great and we loved just lounging on the porch. However, this house is so close to all the activities in Galveston that it's hard to stay in one place for long. We will definitely stay here again! It is so clean and beautiful with the perfect location!
