Our property is personally owned & gently used by family from Houston, Tx. I'm in the environmental consulting business, enjoy art, decorating & our get-aways to the west end of Galveston. Happy to share our paradise with you - the best the island has to offer!
robin franks purchased this house in 1998
Our family is from Houston & we enjoy the short trip to the island for peacful get-aways! With air travel aggrivations & hotel stays not attractive to us, we enjoy the West End of Galveston island with its proximity to attractive nightlife, sport & wade fishing & gourmet dining. The west end offers safe, pretty & family oriented, relaxation time!
Dolphin Daze Galveston is a very unique construction that offers 4 stories & unobstructed views - the best on the island. Very peacful, quiet and romantic! Compare a hotel to our house for a family of 5 and you will find our pricing very agreeable & the resort experience much more enjoyable than a stuffy, overpriced hotel!
Excellent beach house, nice beach, owner very nice and we have decided to make this a annual trip. Thanks so much
Beautiful, well kept home just a four minute walk to the quiet beach. Very clean, all the amenities we needed for our week long stay. The property exceeds the expectations of the online photographs. The outstanding views are 360 degrees of both beach and bay areas, sunrises and sunsets were excellent.
Robin the owner was very friendly, responsive and helpful from beginning to the end of our stay. I recommend this getaway to everyone who is looking for a relaxed, worry free, vacation.
Thanks again Robin.
The house is beautiful! Good view of the beach. Just a short walk. Perfect spot on the beach too, not many people.
We loved this property. We have stayed in several houses in Galveston and this was by far the nicest house we have stayed in. The house was clean and offer several amenities that other houses do not. There was plenty of room for everyone and the beach was just steps away. We will absolutely consider this house when we return to Galveston.
The home wonderful, with a good location, and all the amenities of home! Comfy beds, nice layout and very well stocked with everything you need. Everyone had a fabulous time! Thx!
The house is very nice, the property site is away from the crowds and the beach is very wide and easily accessible. It's about a twenty minute drive to the Strand, not a complaint just an observation. The owner does not take credit cards which is my only disappointment. As she has a large ticket item with few transactions, she could easily negotiate a 1 percent or less transaction rate and appease quite a few customers, at the least they could remove the "accepts credit cards" from the vrbo website.
Guests may make full use of the sub-division pool, showers & other ammenities; pool is short walk/bike ride (under tunnel) of Hwy 3005 (aka, Blue Water Highway) w/in the sub-division. Contact owner for gate code. Excellent dining nearby (try the Harbor Restaurant). Nick is the chef - excellent food. Also, near the famous Galveston Strand with its seasonal Mardi Gras & 'Dickens on the Strand'. Excellent shopping, unique art, antiques! Sport fishing at its best; less than 2 miles from San Luis Pass, some of the best wade fishing in the U.S. - & 15 minutes from Freeport's sport fishing paradise!
