About Walt Burger

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

The hosts are outstanding and I think this is the best place relative to the ocean in Galvaston

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the hosts Walt and Vicki are the best hosts I have ever rented from.

My wife and I are really going to miss this place. I sit here writing this - is so hard to leave such a wonderful place.

The house has everything you need. It has big spacious bedrooms. Everything is very clean. The kitchen is outstanding: plenty of silverware, pots, pans, dishes. It has a very nice big electric fry pan to cook the fresh shrimp and fish we bought. The kitchen also has a nice selection of spices. If you like to drive into town and get fresh seafood – right off the boat – you can cook it up perfectly.

The deck allows you to sit and look out on the water to see God’s mighty ocean – rolling and waving – nonstop. The view is utterly fantastic. You can not get closer to the beach than this house. It is so convenient when you realize you forgot the suntan lotion - simple walk to back to the house and back! Also, being on the west side of the island, much less people. There is an empty lot to the left of the house which is nice for privacy.

The owners are very responsive to any emails/questions you send.

One nifty touch is how some things are labeled: light switches, where some kitchen items go, even the bathtub handles.

I very much look forward to coming back and staying here again.

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!

Location is perfect and everything is so well organized / labeled for ease. Second time renters and hopefully more visits in the future. And being able to bring my dogs makes it so easy. Great communication, easy to find, quiet beautiful location.

Nice house with great location!

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time staying at Galveston Beach for five nights. The location was wonderful, directly on the beach. I loved sitting on the deck and enjoying the view! You could walk on the beach for miles and there were not that many people. If you didn't want to sun yourself on the beach, you could do so on your deck since it had sun for a good part of the day. Some parts of the house could use a little updating but it was well equipped with everything that you would need. Also if you like privacy, this would be the place to go. As I said not many people on the beach in February and all the big chain restaurants and grocery stores are about a 20 minute drive. Otherwise there was a small grocery store that had about everything you would need about 5 minutes away and a wonderful restaurant on the bay called West End Marina also close by. The owner was very pleasant too!

Beautiful, comfortable, and GREAT Location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house with the best views. All the comforts of home here. The beach is right in front of the house. We could watch the kids play on the beach from the balcony. About a 15-20 min ride to the seawall to enjoy all the great restaurants and shopping. Convenient store across the street from this house. This house has everything you will need. All kitchen items you can think of, spices, coffee, tea, cleaning materials, laundry soap, flash lights, etc... Well stocked for your convenience. Good water pressure in the showers. The kids LOVED the loft above the kitchen. The owners are good people. Answered all my questions and very friendly. We will be back to stay here again in the future. We loved the place.
