Great, clean house with amazing views!
I recently spent a week at Golden Opportunity with my wife and 4 year old son. We had the time of our lives! The house is nestled in a gated community just minutes from the ferry and is buffered by the main road by a marsh type conservation project which is nice. The houses are nicely spread out and there is currently a vacant lot next door. We went in early May, so we had the beach 100% to ourselves while enjoying upper 80's and breezy nights. The deck overlooks gulf with no obstructions and has plenty of rocking chairs, etc. Master, living, kitchen, and guest bedroom all have doors to deck:) Kid room with I believe 3 sets of bunk beds which is nice. I grew up vacationing each year in similar homes on the Outer Banks NC and have always been partial when comparing to Galveston. While the Gulf is not quite the Atlantic, this neighborhood and house definitely surprised me. I had only vacationed around Galveston. Let me tell you, this is the place you need to stay if you enjoy solitude, pretty beaches, security, fishing, etc...I enjoyed it much better than my experiences in Galveston. We used the ferry a few times (just drive up and get on with your car) to go back and forth between Galveston for dinner outings. Usually took 20-30 min total. There are some good little seafood joints within 5-8 miles and also some great fishing spots. We caught 2 dozen crabs off canal road. The owner Ted was very nice and helpful. We will definitely be back as soon as we can!
