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.

About David Street

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.

Why David Street chose Galveston

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

OUTSTANDING HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
This was a great house and the location was perfect for us. My mom has parkinsons disease and her nerves are really bad at times, but it was so quiet and peaceful while we were there. Very relaxing just sitting on the deck and watching the people fish and stroll along the beach. There wasn't a lot of people like you see along the seawall area in Galveston. The rooms are very spacious. It's everything that they say in the other reviews and then some.The beds are great, the tub in the master bath is long for those of you who have long legs like me...lol...I'm 6 ft. Owners are great getting back to you if you have questions or problems. But the only problem I had was forgetting my info. for their house at home, luckily I had a phone number to call and they got back to me within 5-10 minutes. There were a few fire works that were shot off by others and the reflection of the lights off of the fireworks over the water was beautiful. Once mom got use to the noise and was expecting it she loved it also. But if your a person who can't handle several stairs then you might want to reconsider. They were hard on mom but she has a health problem that interferes with her mobility so we were prepared for that and only went to Galveston 1 day so mom wouldn't have to climb the stairs to much. She was happy just sitting and relaxing on the deck and listening to the waves while the rest of us girls walked on the beach and looked for sea shells every chance we got. We hope to return again next yr. and we will try to stay at this house.

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in this home with our two small children. We can't say enough wonderful things! First of all, the view can't be beat. We spent many afternoons and evenings on the deck and felt so private and secluded. The home itself was very clean and comfortable. The huge TVs in every bedroom and in the living room were very nice and there were lots of games and toys for our little ones. There was quite a bit of seaweed on the beach, but the owner was very accomodating. It didn't bother us, as it's part of nature and brought in lots of birds and crabs for us to admire! We did see dolphins one day right off the beach! It's about a 30min drive into Galveston and Galveston itself had so many fun things for us to do! We visitied Moody Gardens, took a dolphin boat tour, went to the Railroad Museum, and the Offshore Rig Museum. We will absolutely be coming back and staying in this home next year!

As Advertized and More!

  • 5 of 5
This house is as Advertized and then some! What a comfortable home right on the water with your own (practically private) beach. I took my family with three children under the age of 8 and it was great! We spent lots of time on the beach, swimming, crab hunting, shell hunting, bird chasing, sand castle building, etc. The family was entertained the whole 7 days. Lots of great places to eat out, but the kitchen is fully stocked with all the cooking items you would need.
The beds are very comfortable and bath towels are plenty. Very nice TVs in all rooms with DishTV. Big selection of DVDs as well for a rainy day. Wi-fi throughout the house. The two decks on the house are great for relaxing in the sun or shade and just listening to the waves hit the beach. I loved the water hoses at both the parking spots and up on the front deck for rinsing sand off before entering the house.

The house is close enough to Galveston so everything is at your fingertips....we recommend the aquarium at Moody Gardens and Pleasure Pier for kids.

We booked a Charter fishing trip with Captain Greg at fishinggalvestontx.com and caught two sharks, flounder and red fish. I highly recommend the Jetty trip.

The owners of this house have the BEST communication and give lots of helpful info with quick replies to emails. The welcome gift bag was a nice touch too.

We will be back!

Great House and location

  • 5 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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.

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.
