AWESOME GULF VIEW AND BEACH ACCESS, INVITING 3/2 WITH ELEVATOR

Galveston House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

At Bucko's Bungalow we cater to those who are looking for an inviting, cozy, clean, and convenient beach house. Our home features amazing Gulf views, a super short walk to the beach, and all the desired amenities. We also provide a wheelchair accessible elevator for those who find navigating the steep outside stairs of beach houses problematic (and it's really helpful when you're hauling luggage and groceries!).

Located in the "Pirate's Beach" subdivision, our property is an easy drive to historic downtown Galveston, the Strand, Moody Gardens, and all that the island has to offer. We also provide our guests with access to the Galveston Country Club which has a golf course, restaurant, and pool.

Our house is set up for comfort, not body count. We have purposefully arranged the bedrooms to afford people the ability to sleep. For example, the master bedroom is on the top floor and only has a king-sized bed. So, you have a separate and private suite with Gulf views from the bed and a private deck to top it off. Sweet!

Since we have our own small dog that we love to bring to the beach, we allow you the same privilege. However, there are a few rules and responsibilities that must be honored and they're outlined in the listing agreement. Additionally, there is a $100 fee per dog (max. 2).

Our weekly rental period runs from Sunday afternoon through Sunday morning. Please, only 25 or older and no smoking.

About The Owner

Sadly, we're still hard at work and our desired daily beach lifestyle is more dream than reality!

The Owner purchased this house in 2012

Why The Owner chose Galveston

It's simple, we love historic downtown Galveston and the beach. We decided that there's nothing finer than being "Islanders by Choice." Oh, and the access from Houston is so close and easy.

What makes this house unique

When we purchased this property we decided to set it up as a cozy and comfortable second home with all the amenities that we enjoy. So, it's not a beach bunk house. We have a new big screen HDTV, digital programming, the faster wifi you can get from the cable company, etc.

Also, we wanted the elevator to ensure that our folks could visit and not be excluded due to the unmanageable exterior stairs.

Great Family Home

We loved this home, it had everything you needed. The furnishings were outstanding. We will visit this home again. The elevator was a plus with my disabled husband. Louis the owner was very helpful when we had a little problem with elevator, due to we didn't close both doors.

Actually I would say Good to Excellent. One issue was the garbage disposal was not
workable. The linens were great and plentiful and the instructions were very thorough and
easy. Thanks for all the blankets as it was cold outside. We loved having the elevator!!!
I would recommend this rental for all situations.
We recommend Moody Gardens Dining.
Will my deposit be coming soon? Hope so.

Thanksgiving at Galveston

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time. The property was clean and welcoming. Actually, the property was even better than the pictures. Luckily, the weather warmed mid week when our "grand-dog" came down and she could enjoy the lovely deck.
The kitchen is lovely and, since I am the cook, it was wonderful being able to cook and still be with the family.
The beach house is close enough to all the activities and we were able to enjoy Moody Gardens, The Strand- we were only restricted by the unusually cold weather the first few days.
My husband was really pleased that there was Wi-Fi and that it was fast! Of course, everyone had their I-pads, I-pods, computers. We also enjoyed all the movies we brought down. I can't think of anything that didn't make this house comfortable for my family. We had a wonderful week and want to come down again in the Spring!
Thank you for letting us enjoy your home.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
We just spent five days at Bucko's Bungalow. This was a repeat visit from last year and already are planning to be back there in 2014. The house is just perfect. It is fully equipped, very nice furniture, great view, and an elevator! We love the view to the beach. You look out over green, green grass, palm trees, blooming hibiscus and oleanders and then the beach. Great view for morning coffee or an evening cocktail! We usually eat out and this house is convenient because you are very close to town. It is really nice and the owner is very nice to deal with. No problems at all. Plus, there is a package of cookies waiting for you when you get there!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5
Bucko's Bungalow was a wonderful cabin! It was just a short walk to the beach, or a short drive into Galveston. It was beautifully decorated with plenty of room for all of our clothes and beach gear. The elevator was perfect for my elderly parents. We enjoy going to the Strand and looking in the shops, and having ice cream at La King's. Gaido's is another favorite of ours on our annual beach vacation. The owner was quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had. We would definitely recommend this cabin!
