2beachfun in Palm Beach that does not allow MOTOR vehicles on the beach. We are on a dead end road to the beach with 2 protected views to the East and South. Our deck has some shade all day. The deck is accessed by a ramp and stairs with a gate on each to keep small children and pets safe on the deck.
Recently we completely remodeled our house installing a solid vinyl plank floor, repainted the inside of the house, installed new plumbing fixtures in the baths and added 3 new bedrooms making a total of 4 bedrooms. A new grill on the garden covered patio, a new electric range with convection oven, new microwave, new washer and dryer are off the hall inside the house new 22 inch and 37 inch TVs with Dish. We have a very quiet dishwasher that is quieter than two people talking, a Kitchen Aid refrigerator/freezer with ice maker. We have an extra refrigerator and freezer in the ground floor storage area that is accessible to you for more cool storage space.
We have all the dishes, pots and pans that we need for ourselves to use the house. There are two coffee pots. One is 12 cups and one is 4 cup. We even leave the spices out for you. We are not lacking anything in the house. We have ceiling fans in all the bedrooms, kitchen - dining and living areas. We installed new hurricane proof windows and doors which makes the house very quiet inside.
We have a wood burning fireplace that is nice to have romantic times in cool weather.
We have large windows in all the rooms so the house is bright and cheery. The cathedral ceiling in the living area of the house makes it feel very large. The dining table will seat 8 with 5 more at the large bar.

About Charles Calvin
My wife and I built this house for ourselves in 1996. Everyone just loves our house. There is nothing we would change after having used it for 19 years. We live here in the Oct to May season full time. We leave in the fall for a few weeks to spend time with our grandchildren so if you are interested in a holiday visit to the beach check our calendar as I keep it up to date.
Charles Calvin purchased this House in 1996
Why Charles Calvin chose Palm Beach
We built the house because we could not find a house that was right for us. It is close in to Galveston with great views and a short one minute walk to the very wide beach.
What makes this House unique
This house works well for one or two or three couples couple or a large family. The large deck of about 800 square feet will give everyone room outside. The neighborhood is very quiet. The ground floor garden area (700 sq ft in size) has several tables and about 7 chairs with a rocking couch. This area is always cool, but we did not know that when we put in the two ceiling fans which we never use. There is an outdoor (hot and cold water) shower in the garden area also. There is a hammock, 6 or 8 chairs, a rocking chair that seats 2, and several tables. We have a charcoal grill for cooking and BBQ. We like to sit here in the afternoon shade and enjoy the breezes off the water.

Wonderful sunny and comfortable house.
Just returned from a girl's weekend in this house and it was so much fun. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook fabulous meals and it is so spacious. There were seven of us and we were able to all sit around the table and never felt crowded.
We took lots of walks on the beach and it was so close being only about half a short block up. Our little dog also liked his walks down to the beach and the ramp going down the side of the house made it so much easier to maneuver. Gametime and movietime were also lots of fun with the awesome round table and the big tv with comfy chairs and sofa to snuggle up in.
Great house for a family with kids. There are gates that can be locked at both openings to the terrific deck with the beautiful views of the gulf. Since it was rather chilly, we sat on the cozy sofa inside and still had a view of the beach in two directions.
We were here during Mardi Gras weekend and the neighborhood was so quiet and we felt like we were the only ones at the beach this weekend! We didn't go to any restaurants or shopping but having been to Galveston before, I know both are plentiful.
I'm already gathering another group of friends to go down for a weekend this spring and the family to take a trip this summer.
You won't be disappointed if you rent this one.
A big thanks to the owners for everything. You were great to work with.
Thanks for your comments. We hope you do return.

The house was very comfortable and well stocked. Short walk to the beach.
Worth Your Stay!
We stayed here with 4 adults, 2 teens, and 5 young children. There was plenty of room to spread out! We all took showers/baths at the same time of day and never even got close to running out of hot water. The wifi was perfect--no problems, even running all of our devices at the same time. The DVR was a nice surprise--we recorded the game to watch when we got back at night. There were plenty of towels--bath and beach. I don't think this listing does justice to the beach proximity. Was it a block? I don't know. It was like walking across a large backyard. It took only a minute. The neighborhood is very nice, quiet, and safe. Because we were scheduled to visit only a week after Hurricane Harvey, I emailed the owner questions a LOT. I know I was super annoying. He was always gracious and helpful, though. I felt good knowing he would respond if a need arose while we were staying at this property.
I would definitely recommend staying here!
We are glad you had a great time, We do try to make every stay as pleasant as possible for each person that stays at our house.
Did not like this house. It was dirty and dusty.
Everything was OK with this Renter until we charged them $50.00 for removing excess sand and dirt from the house, cleaning the food off the cook top, removing dried food from the refrigerator and freezer, and picking up empty water bottles from under the beds and other furniture.
Our cleaning manager does a very thorough cleaning of the entire house, deck and ground floor garden area after each renter leaves. I rarely have a complaint of the house not being satisfactory.
We would not let them rent again as the house was just left in a big mess.
Wonderful beach house for our family of 13
This was a great house and a perfect location. There were 13 people in our party – all adults and teenagers. The ramp was great because my mom is in a wheelchair so we were able to get her in and out of the house. We loved that the beach is within walking distance. The house is spacious, nicely decorated, and equipped with everything you need including plenty of kitchen utensils, pots, pans, beach towels, beach chairs, sheets, blankets, and plenty of seating on the balcony and patio. There is even a nice cart to haul your items to the beach. The kids enjoyed using the kayaks. We didn’t have any issues with the internet. The house is about 7 or 8 miles from the seawall so it's a only a short drive to town to enjoy restaurants and other attractions. The owner was easy to work with and so was Sandra, the housekeeper. She was extremely helpful if we had any questions. We had a great time and hope to be back again soon.
Amazing--Awesome--Perfect for our family group!!
We loved the house and the beach and everything about it! It was so easy to walk to the beach early morning and late evening! The porch was wonderful to sit out in the evenings and play family games! The sleeping arrangements worked great for us. I could go on and on but it was an awesome experience--one I hope we can repeat!!
2beachfun is in Palm Beach subdivision. Most homes are smaller than ours with about 1/3 occupied by full time residents. We are less than a minute walk to the beach on a dead end street so it is safe for children to walk to the beach. No vehicle traffic on our very wide beach.
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, beach goers 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.
Our house is all on one floor. We are very close to all the activities in Galveston. It only takes about 15 minutes to get to the Strand and downtown Galveston.
