HOUSE ON THE BEACH AND LOOKING OUT TO SEA

Galveston House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

You're not just on the beach, you own the beach.

Enjoy our inviting and spacious 1400 sq. ft. beachfront home on the sandy beach with breathtaking views over the Gulf of Mexico and Christmas Bay. The entire house has just been remodeled: kitchen, bathrooms, paint, decks, fireplace, beds, sofas, ceiling fans, even a new pretty white railing around the two decks.

We think you'll enjoy your time here while your blood pressure drops.

The master bedroom includes a king size bed, double futon that can pull out to be a double bed, reading lamps, an en-suite bathroom with a garden tub and separate shower, large walk-in closet, dresser, private porch, and tranquil views of the sun rising over the Gulf (there is no better way to wake up).

The guest bedroom has a new tall queen bed, reading lamp, lounge chair, and dresser. The bunkroom has a double bed on the bottom with a twin on top, another twin bed and a reading lamp. Feel free to take out our boogie boards in the closet.

The house is literally right on the beach with just a sand dune between the beach and our home. Our neighborhood uses a little wooden crossover bridge for getting to the beach in order to preserve the dunes. The beach itself is beautiful for finding treasures like shells that wash up from the sea. There is mostly fine sand with shells interspersed. In the summertime, the water around Galveston is warm. During certain weeks throughout the year, beachgoers will see a line of seaweed that has washed up on the beach. Seaweed is not always there and is not the norm, but it is natural and just a part of the beach ecosystem. It is partially responsible for building up the beach and dunes that we all enjoy.

We are a sister and two brothers helping to care for our family's vacation home. The picture is several years old but we look even better now! We've created countless cherished memories at this house and are excited about having you come and experience our treasured spot.

We've made this our vacation getaway ever since Dear Old Dad built it on what he called the 'Best Beach Lot Ever' (he talks like that sometimes). But before you assume he is exaggerating (don't feel bad, we sometimes do too) take a look at our pictures. This honestly is a location unlike any other with a view down miles of unspoiled beach.

We all agree that sitting out on one of the beach-facing porches of our house is our favorite thing to do - people watching, watching the pelicans fly by, dolphins at play, seeing the colors change in the evening. The house is not overly cavernous, but has plenty of space to find privacy when you want it.

Great House and location

We had a great time in Freeport. The house was just as pictured. It was very comfortable and the deck was perfect for our dogs. They had a ball watching the sea birds and folks on the beach.

The perfect getaway

This house is exceptional in many ways. It's location is unbeatable and literally right on the beach with wonderful uninterrupted views of the sea. The house itself is beautifully furnished and the moment you walk through the door you feel relaxed and at ease. The original welcome gifts and bottle of wine were a typical thoughtful touch. From the initial enquiry, through to booking, arrival and throughout the stay the owners are always so friendly and ready to help, advise and respond immediately to messages. We ate in every night and the kitchen was a joy to cook in with high quality equipment and utensils. We booked the house as we needed a week of complete rest and relaxation and it could not have been better. Long walks up the beach even provided the daily exercise, and so much nicer than going to the gym! How better to follow a long walk than with a long, hot bath, a good book and a view out to sea. We flew from the UK and have never got over the time change quite so quickly. The bed is unbelievably comfortable with yet more unbeatable views.

In order to give a balanced review I have been trying to balance the exceptionally good points with some less good ones. Sadly I can't think of any!

If peace, quiet and seclusion are what you are looking for, together with comfort and luxury, look no further. This house is a gem.

We had a great time. Very clean and right on the beach. Make sure you bring a lot of your own food unless you want to eat out every night. Does need a new TV, for rainy days and nights. Was very relaxing and had great views. Will go again next year. Katie was always available for questions and contacted us several times before trip with updates and instructions. Very safe area and everyone we met was very nice.

Wonderful property!

This house should be named "BEST HOUSE On the beach' instead of "LastHouseOnthebeach" !! The view from the decks were wonderful - house sits RIGHT on the beach with great views of the gulf / ocean. Interior of house is very nicely decorated, and updated. Beautiful kitchen, fully stocked, and you can cook and look out at beach/ocean at same time. Love the windows all across the back of the house facing the ocean! By the 2nd day there, we lost track of time / day of week, we were so relaxed. Since it was after Labor Day, beach was pretty empty so no crowds to deal with at all. Soft and sandy beach, too! The owners of property VERY responsive, too.. I had some questions prior to our visit, so wrote a few emails asking variety of things, and always received a prompt response. When we got there, also had a lovely 'welcome' 'goody' bag . Very nice touch - just that 'over and above' nice thing to do! We definitely would recommend this property to friends / relatives, and hope to do this vacation again in the near future!

Map

Car: recommended

You're going to be located a few short feet behind the dunes looking down miles of undeveloped Gulf of Mexico beach. Great location if you'd like to be in a small neighborhood but have a secluded feel, you practically own the beach here.

There is a bait and tackle store within walking distance of the home for quick supplies or you will be able to take a short 10 minute drive down Bluewater Highway to get great seafood and shops.
