Overview

Galveston House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom 2 Bath, 1 block from the beach

This villa is your perfect bungalow only steps from the Gulf waters, beach store shopping, restaurants, bars and still close to everything like; the Strand historical district, the Pleasure Pier, and Moody Gardens. If this house is booked, we have another Island home we can rent to you that may be available #477190 on VRBO. http://www.vrbo.com/477190#

In the off-season (late 2013 early 2014) this bungalow just had new coats of paint both inside and outside, new decking as well as stairs built for both front and back of the house, new beach-style flooring installed throughout the entire home and a brand new Ashley Furniture sleeper sofa set purchased for the living room. It's almost like a brand new home and ready for the 2014 Vacation Season!

This bungalow is decorated in a tropical theme with vibrant colors and never lets you forget how close you are to the beach. The back yard is filled with tropical plants and palms and a large 8 foot picnic table if you would like to eat outside during your stay. Use the grill on the small back deck for a cook-out or just enjoy the sea breezes from the front porch. Whatever you decide to do Blue Crab bungalow will make for an amazing stay on Galveston Island!

This house is close to 3 wonderful restaurants in Galveston. Mosquito Cafe (14th) Sunflower Cafe (14th) and Shy Katz (16th). You should check them out if you get a chance. It is also just over 1 block to Benno's on the Seawall for wonderful seafood!

I recommend you bring your bikes to the Island because anything you would want to do is all within cycling distance from the Blue Crab Bungalow!

There are so many fun things to do on Galveston that are all within steps to just a few miles away. Many great beaches, entertainment, shopping and miles of Gulf Coast beaches. Galveston’s festivals, special events and attractions are enjoyable for all! Check the Galveston Island website to see what's happening during your stay....there is at least one festival per month on the Island. Galveston has many enjoyable activities for single and family lives. Explore the the downtown Strand area and ride horse drawn carriages. Also don't forget to visit the Elissa (a historic sail boat from 1877) or the oil rig museum, both near the Strand on Pier 21. See a movie or enjoy many of Galveston's shops & art studios. You can rent bicycles (3 blocks from the house on 17th), scooters, golf carts & Segways to enjoy the Seawall during all parts of the day or just walk the beach, which is only a few steps across the way. The stretch of Seawall located just out from the house also offers Jet ski rentals in the Summer as well as chair and umbrella rental. But if you don't want to rents them, we provide 8 bag chairs at the Blue Crab bungalow, that you can bring to the beach or use for whatever you would like during your stay.

Many people also come to fish on one of Galveston's many piers (2 of which are just a couple blocks from the house) or charter a boat for more exciting catches. There are plenty of hidden coves and waterways to explore for your next fishing trip. Take the kids to Schlitterbahn, Galveston Island's amazing water park, or the NEW Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier which hosts many rides, games, and activities for all to enjoy as well as food at Bubba Gump's restaurant. Live Bands play on the end of the pier during the summer night weekends. Also entertainment is always just a few blocks away at the only Bar and restaurant over the sand on the seawall called The Beach Hut. Galveston has much to offer and explore and our home is right in the middle of all you could dream to do... it just needs you :)

We have another house on the island and will always be close if you have any question or issues during your stay. Feel free to contact us at any time! We look forward to sharing this amazing home with you and your friends and family!

About Jeanna Crookshanks

As travelers ourselves, we're excited for the opportunity to allow people to visit Galveston Island for a reasonable price; the hotel prices can be ridiculous here in the Summer, and it's better to have all of the comforts of home! We like sharing our home by the beach with others.We both love boating and anything that has to do with the water! We also enjoy cooking, strength training, scuba diving sailing, all other water sports!

Jeanna Crookshanks purchased this house in 2012

Why Jeanna Crookshanks chose Galveston

We purchased this house to have a place just steps from the beach. We have lived in Galveston for over 15 years and love the Island life. We hope to share the experience with you!

What makes this house unique

Beautifully decorated Beach house with such vibrant and happy colors guaranteed to keep you smiling you whole vacation!

Blue Crab Bungalow

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed here for a family wedding that was at the Tremont. We couldn't have had nicer accommodations and it was an 8 dollar cab ride to the wedding events. We decided to stay here instead of hotel because we were traveling with my kids 4, 2, and 4 months. My husband and best friend were with us as well and we had more than enough room. I loved the water pressure and how the hot water lasted! It was super clean and Jeanna even allowed us to use her coffee. It was located a block from the sea wall and we had plenty of eating options around us. The only thing I wished we had was a few extra towels but there is a washer and dryer so you could do a load. Loved it and will be back!

Galveston visit at Blue

  • 5 of 5
When we arrived the property was clean and ready for our stay. Well maintained with all the items provided
and in place for our needs. It is decorated very tasteful and we felt at home right away. It is just a short walk away from the seawall and the gulf which is great because parking there is limited at times. Parking at the property is provided.
Shortly Jeanna and Troy stopped by and gave us a quick tour of the home and pointed out some things we had not
thought about that came in very useful.
We ask about local attractions and eateries, they were happy to help with those things and had suggestions of some very nice and friendly one of a kind places to dine close by.
The location is good and makes getting around the island easy.
We will be returning to the Blue Crab any time we can visit Galveston again. We also would recommend this property to anyone who is not interested in the everyday structure and limits of staying in a hotel.
The Blue Crab is and an excellent value over many other vacation choices.
