Overview

About the property

4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths tri-level, great layout, over 1500 sf deck, three level

This beachfront home has the best view of any home on the West End, yet close to the fun of downtown Galveston. Easy walk to Galveston State Park. Our beach has a private feeling and is very quiet (no cars are allowed to drive on beach thus no worries about the kids/dogs). Once you cross the bridge from the mainland you will find a unique experience. We feel like we are entering a different world when we visit our beachfront island home! Starting in 2014, the beach has been raked of seaweed.

MISC: All photos are post Ike. We have rebuilt Summer Wind from head to toe after the hurricane. This home is set back, plenty of beach in front and only small dunes between you and the beach. Please note, the map illustration can make it appear there are lots in front of Summer Wind. If you use a satellite view you will see this is not the case. This is a front row, ocean front home!

Rustic, authentic, relaxing ocean beach get away!

  • 4 of 5

Great spot, very rustic and natural and quiet! Bring towels, there is great supply of beach toys and chairs. Shark fishing was most popular besides walking and playing on the beach. Very relaxing!

Tons of deckspace

  • 3 of 5

Our stay was fraught with issues, but not all of them were property related.To begin, I did not receive the final confirmation email with all the final information. This shouldn't be a big issue normally, but it meant that I did not receive the code to access the key to the house. I tried messaging the owner 3 days before the trip through the home away app, that you get recommended to, to get this information and got no response. I don't even know if they received the messages. On the day of I had to call VRBO customer service to get the renter's number to get the code. That took about 20 minutes though and wasn't too big a deal, but I would highly recommend some other form of communication given to the renters, so that something like this is avoidable. The photos are also from when the deck was rebuilt. I do not know when that was, but it is not nearly as new as the pictures show. The gate door didn't even have a bar on it as it was all rusted off and was held closed with a bungee cord. But the deck-space is amazing and was 100% the reason we chose this location; as we did a wedding on the beach and a reception in the house. Unfortunately the day of the wedding the winds were in upwards 15+ mph, so no one really got to use the whole of the deck which was disappointing. The house itself is fairly cramped compared to the pictures as well, so don't expect a full open floor plan if you want a larger group, but it still worked for the 10-15 people we had for the reception. I am not sure why, but you could actually feel the house moving in the wind too which was a bit disquieting. This was most prevalent in the bathrooms and when you are resting on the sofa. Also, the master bedroom is tiny with almost nowhere to walk. They should have taken the shower from that bedroom, which seemed like it was added as an afterthought so it could be advertised as having a master, and put it in the 4th bedroom with was much more a master, but just did not have a shower in it; although, it did have a toilet and sink. There were lots of extras in the house which was great IE. Trash bags, paper towels, bathroom towels, linens on the bed, and lots of beach toys. Overall this experience was decent enough for a hastily thrown together wedding and the place that we stayed at seemed to structurally match that.

Galveston is eclectic, fun and one-of-a-kind. What makes it fun?

+ The beaches,

+ The Strand

+ Endless activities: ArtWalk, Music on the Strand, Movie Night on the Strand, etc...

+ Art Galleries (These are not your texas landscape art galleries!!!)

+ Watching the cruise ships come in

+ People watching on the Seawall

+ Enjoying a 1st Class dinner looking over the Gulf

+ Watching the dolphin play off your deck

+ Watching kids learn to surf in surf school

+ Or, watching the dolphin swim alongside you on the ferry ride to Bolivar

+ Chasing crabs at night with a flash light (# kid delighter)

+ Talking to the neighbors on the beach, some are always there...some are visiting just like you!

Lastly, do take a trip around the island and understand the depth of will and progress the islanders have made since Hurricane IKE, their intent is to make this a wonderful place for all to visit and escape your hectic lives
