“Just One More Day.” That’s what it seems everyone is longing for at the end of the stay in our Galveston Island getaway. Soak up some rays on the spacious deck. Go for a walk on the beach,only 100 yards away.Go for a swim in the community pool.There’s even a wading pool.Challenge your family to a game of billiards downstairs or possibly a board game from the numerous ones provided.Grill a delicious meal and finally have dinner together! At night,gather the kids for some stargazing.There’s a chair for everyone.Pick out a book and get some “me” time.Read a bedtime story to your kids with several to choose from.Finally,retire in comfortable beds with an abundance of pillows.Awake to the sound of seagulls and plan your day over coffee on the patio. We've strived for comfort and to offer the things your friends or family might need to reconnect, create memories and have fun.You'll say can we stay Just One More Day?

Close enough to everything in Galveston!: Start the morning with a relaxing stroll on the beach then turn up the excitement at Schlitterbahn Water Park, year round fun! Spend a day at Moody Gardens visiting the rainforest and aquarium pyramids and don't miss the 4-D FX theater. Your family will also enjoy Palm Beach located inside Moody Gardens. Go for a ride in a historic Warbird at the Lone Star Flight Museum. Maybe, you'd like to spend the day shopping on the Strand. There are numerous specialty shops, restaurants and one of the best old fashioned ice cream parlors around, complete with an operating taffy machine. Don't miss the new Pleasure Pier amusement park which is scheduled to open in May 2012! All of these activities only 15-20 minutes away from the beach house.

Come for an event!: Galveston hosts numerous festivals and activities all year long. We have the Shrimp Fest, chili cook-off, walking events, biking events, the Festival of Lights, Dickens on the Strand, the Sandcastle Competition, the Motorcycle Rally, fishing tournaments, Mardi Gras, symphony or show at the 1894 Opera House, just too many to mention! All within minutes away.

Send your kids off to camp....but keep them local.: Texas A&M Galveston offers fun loaded day summer camps for children ages 6-11. Sleep over camps are offered to ages 10-18, local on the island. Check it out and inspire the scientist in your child. They will have so much fun, they won't even realize they are learning. Book early, though, for best selections.

Maybe you've always wanted to learn to surf. Your little ones can learn too! Lessons are available for all ages.

Whatever your day brings, end your day back at the house with a perfect family meal under the stars on the extra large deck. Then gather for family game time downstairs in the recreation room and plan your next fun filled day.

Felt like my home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

House was clean, nicely decorated and very roomy and comfortable. Had everything we needed for a long weekend stay with kids and grandkids. The small ones really enjoyed all the games available. Fenced in yard was beautifully landscaped. We really enjoyed sitting on the patio in the evening. The house is very convenient to a nice quiet beach. Owner was very nice and was quick to answer all my questions. I would definitely recommend this property. I hope to go back soon and I have told all my friends about this great place.

Wonderful get away at "Just One More Day".

  • 5 of 5

"Just One More Day" was perfect for our family's getaway. It had everything we needed for a relaxing and comfortable stay with 3 teen-aged boys....who really enjoyed the pool table, ping pong, and air hockey. The kitchen had all the cookware and utensils needed for making our Thanksgiving Dinner. Easy access to the beach, nice and quiet, a little farther down the island from the regular tourist traffic. We will definitely consider returning in the near future. THANK YOU!

This was a great place for my family to come together for Labor Day Weekend!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed this beach house and was equipped for all our needs. It was family oriented and kid friendly. I only have one suggestion for future tenants of small children. In the background, there is a planter box with cactus. We were unaware when we were all enjoying the back yard on our first evening and my two year old grand daughter was running around and touched this cactus and we spent the first night picking out splinters from both of her hands while she was screaming. Maybe a warning sign would be a good suggestion. Like I said that is my only suggestion...we loved the beach house!!

Property was just as described.

  • 4 of 5

The property was nestled in a quiet community. Just minutes from all of the attractions. Nice place just as described in app. Everything you will need to have a great getaway is there. All you need to bring is food essentials and some fun. The rest is there. Even items you wouldn't expect. My wife was so impressed with the little things like sewing kit and first aid kit. Overall it was great. Will stay here again.
