Overview

Galveston House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, Sleeps 10

This spacious 5 bedroom house comfortably sleeps 10. This secluded beauty is one of two houses located on a very large and uniquely private piece of land, located between Bermuda Beach and Pirate's Beach. Only the grass in the yard and the dunes separate you from the beach. With a deck that is so massive it is almost as big as the house (I'm not kidding) you will have plenty of room to lounge around and take in the sun and warm ocean breezes. There is an out door shower with hot and cold water--feels good after a sandy day at the beach. There are 2 hammocks for those who may want to relax and read or grab a nap. You are only minutes away from the new Schlitterbahn Water Park, Moody Gardens and the Galveston Strand. We would like to share our home with caring, thoughtful friends and families. Sorry, we are unable to accommodate events, parties, weddings, and receptions. MAXIMUM NUMBER OF GUESTS IS TEN

The minimum age for rental is 25 years.

Suitability:
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible

About Linda

I am retired from an Emergency Department, where I worked for 30 years, as a Registered Nurse. My children always loved the beach, so I built this house to be enjoyed by them, their husbands and my grandchildren. We rent the house when we aren't using it. Why leave our home and such a beautiful view go to waste, when it can be enjoyed by another family or small group?

Linda purchased this house in 2006

Why Linda chose Texas Gulf Coast

"Ocean's Twelve" is very private. There is a clear view of the beach and the waves out the large front windows and from the giant deck. We try to keep the interior upscale with a relaxing feeling.

What makes this house unique

There is a swing and a hammock on the ground floor, and a hammock on the main deck. Small riding toys are there for the children to enjoy. You can have meals on either of the picnic tables on the ground floor or the round dinner table on the main deck. There is plenty of seating for those who want to sit on the deck and take the sun or relax in the hammock on the shady side of the deck.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful! Great Location, spacious and very clean

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Ocean's Twelve. The entire house was very clean and well stocked with everything you'd need for a relaxing, wonderful family getaway. I loved that there were no other buildings to our east. We had an unobstructed view of the beach and of the sunrise in the morning. The deck, including the hammock!, were so relaxing. The pergola on the deck provided perfect shade to enjoy meals outside. Plenty of beach supplies. We had the beach almost to ourselves, it was wonderful. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your glowing review. The open acreage to the East, and clear view of the Gulf. and private-feeling of the beach, are a few of our favorite things about "Ocean's Twelve". We try to anticipate what our guests will need to make their stay relaxing and carefree. We would love to have you return for a stay. Give us a call anytime!

Extremely Happy

  • 5 of 5

This home will not disappoint nor will the owner. We arrived after a major storm and our power was out but the owner was very responsive and helped get our power back on quickly. The house is beautiful and well built. The floor plan and furniture arrangement is set up great for families. We also could not believe how clean everything was. The short walk to the beach was great with little kids. The beach is beautiful almost private. We go to galveston quite often and haven't found a place that could beat this home. Its close proximity to Galveston made trips into town a breeze. To the Owner thank you for everything your home and hospitality made it a trip we will never forget.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a thoughtful review! We are pleased that you and your family enjoyed the location of the house, the children's toys, and the quiet beach. We would love to have you back again. We think the view, proximity to town and all the activities, and short walk through the grass to the beach are some of the reasons "Ocean's Twelve" is a great place for a vacation.

Wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family of five spent the week after Christmas at Ocean's Twelve and we couldn't be happier with our stay! Very clean, very well-appointed house at great location. Second-row beach with no obstructions, so there was a grassy area where the kids could play football and the beach itself was just a stone's throw from the house. The kitchen had every utensil and piece of cookware imagineable, and plenty of cooking staples to make meals easy to put together. Incredible view from the windows facing the gulf. The location was private yet accessible to all Galveston has to offer.

A note about the owner: Linda was absolutely amazing to deal with! Responsive, available, and very concerned that our stay was perfect. Couldn't ask for a better hostess!

We can't wait to stay again at Ocean's Twelve.
