Owning a beachfront home was always a dream. After retiring from Dallas businesses we were finally able to find this place that has truly become our private getaway and our joy to share with friends and family.

Linda Carey purchased this house in 2011

Being on the west end provides a quieter more private beach experience. You are still close to restaurants and activities without a large population on the beach. The house is very family friendly but at the same time is a wonderful retreat for couples.

This house was the first house we toured and fell in love immediately. It just felt warm, friendly, comfortable, and like a second home. After looking at several others we kept coming back to this one and believe you will feel the same.

Everything and More!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four sons and families gathered for a long overdue reunion. With everyone living far away, we decided to make an attempt to get us all back together again. We couldn't have picked a more perfect place for our family! It was exactly like the pictures only better and felt like home from the moment we walked in. The rooms were spacious and beautifully decorated. The kitchen was well equipped with everything anyone would need and the views of the ocean were spectacular. Being close to the beach made it especially great with a daughter-in-law 7 months pregnant and a 2 1/2 year old grandson. We even saw dolphins one morning, the guys did their first salt-water fishing, and the girls lounged and caught up on the beach and the beautiful wrap=around deck! The patio below was a bonus as well. Everyone had so much fun, we all promised to have another reunion next year! Thank you Tom and Linda for sharing your gracious and wonderful home!!!

Great family beach house

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 11 spent four nights here kicking off our summer celebration of our 50th wedding anniversary. Our six grandchildren range in age from 2-13. The house was perfect for us to sleep, eat, play games or watch movies.
The large private beach gave the children plenty of room to roam or play in the water. We would definitely choose this house for another trip!

Incredible Home!

  • 5 of 5
Can't wait to book this wonderful home again! The pictures were current but the home is even more welcoming than the photos. Our family shared a special birthday weekend with our parents. Enjoyed every amenity the house offered! The kitchen lacked nothing. This is very rare for a rental home. One morning we even had an opportunity to enjoy our coffee while watching the dolphins. It was a memorable weekend. Thank you Linda and Tom!

Splendid!!

  • 5 of 5
We have traveled to Galveston for family vacations for many years. During our latest trip we stayed at this lovely beach front home. It did not disappoint and we did not want our vacation to end!!! The house is beautiful, extremely comforting and felt like home. There is definitely plenty of room for everyone and we never felt overcrowded. The private beach area and safe neighborhood are perfect for walks and exploring (for kids and adults). We can not wait for summer vacation to get here so we can stay at this fabulous home again. Thank you so much for making our vacation relaxing and welcoming.
