“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.

Nice Location. Had comfortable beds and living facility. Not on the beach but just a short walk.

  • 4 of 5

Nice Beach Home. Short walk to the beach. Well stocked kitchen with plenty of pots and pan.

Comfortable beds and living space. Nice game room with lots to do when not on the beach. It would have been nice to have an Air Conditioner for the Game Room, but it was OK.

Perfect Family Vacation - Every Time!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year renting, and we love it every time. I go with my husband our three little girls (8, 6, 4) and my parents. There is plenty of room for everyone. It feels like a home you borrowed from your friend - the owners have taken care of everything and made sure all conveniences are there. In addition they continue to invest in making the property better. Each year there are either some new appliances, updated furniture etc. Our family has a wonderful time and loves to take advantage of the easy beach access, nearby pool, and restaurant and convenience store. We love it!

Just Awesome

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as good as the pictures and better!! Great beach. Great pool area. We even got to enjoy live music at the Sand Bar. All ages enjoyed every moment. Coffee in the morning on the deck enjoying the sounds and the breeze from the ocean. Game room was awesome entertainment for all when we were at the house. Everything you could want for fishing at the marina which was just a short walk from the house. We would highly recommend to anyone!! Thank you to the Garcias
