About Walt Burger

We live in Sugar Land and are so excited to rent out our new home to you.

Walt Burger purchased this house in 2009

Why Walt Burger chose Texas Gulf Coast

We bought this property because it is directly on the beach and completely remodeled since Ike, but mostly for the wonderful views from the deck.

FABULOUS WINTER WEEKEND RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5

BEAUTIFUL place! Plenty of room for gathering of families and two small dogs for 60th birthday celebration. My daughter thought I was crazy to want to spend it at the beach in the winter but quickly changed her mind!! A few steps and you ARE literally "toes in the sand" or the ocean, winter shelling, beautiful walks on the beach, ocean sunsets. Why wait for summer? My grown kids had thought we'd leave the property for other activities in town but all quickly decided we wanted to spend every moment possible there in this comfortable home with all amenities and spectacular views or on the beach. Cooking was easy and agree, kitchen is larger than pictures show. Walt and Vicki are AWESOME--so helpful, kind, prompt with answers. I can't recommend this property highly enough. Only hope we can all return for another visit!

Watching Dolphins in the Distance

  • 5 of 5

Loved our recent stay at Toes in the Sand. You can walk right out on the beach and even on the busy weekend of July 4th, you're far enough South of the city that the beaches weren't overcrowded. The home is nice and had plenty of room for the 4 of us. There is a market (although pricey) just a couple minutes walk north if you need anything and don't want to go into town. On several mornings (typically between 6:30-7:30am) we watched pods of dolphins swim in the distance as they traveled north up the shoreline. Lots of windows to enjoy the view of the beach from the main living area. We were really pleased with our stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice comments on our beach house. We often see the dolphins swimming in front of Toes in the Sand. There are very few homes in the area as close to the Gulf as our is. You wont be disappointed with Toes in the Sand.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We have recently replaced the washer, dryer, dishwasher, refrigerator, heater, gas grill, king beds and all the lights under the house so our guests will always be comfortable. Being front row 100' from the salt water we get some rust on the lights on the outside our home. If a guests tells us about a problem with our home we immediately address it.

Amazing House!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time while vacationing in Galveston! This house is RIGHT ON the beach and comes fully stocked. Most rentals say they have a fully loaded kitchen but we end up having to buy extra cookware, storage, and utensils. This place had everything we needed. We ate dinner by the ocean the first night, watched the waves roll in from the balcony on the second night, and watched the rain dance on the sand from the patio below on the last night. Rain or shine, you can still view the ocean! The pictures of the house do not do it justice. We have definitely found our bi-annual Galveston rental. Thanks, Walt!
