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!

Best rental ever

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect in every way! The kitchen had everything we needed, the couch and beds were comfortable, the decor was modern, the cable was an added bonus (not my usual experience in Pirates Beach), and the decks were amazing with comfortable furniture. The view was the most amazing part of the property! We used the upper and lower decks, depending on the time of day. I was so appreciative that John shared such a wonderful house with my family. I think a yearly trip will be at this house! We've rented at Pirates Beach for 25 years, and this is easily our favorite!

Great family get away!

  • 5 of 5

The house is great and could not be closer to the beach. There were 9 of us and there was plenty of room. Lots of great spots to sit outside no matter how hot the weather. Can't wait to go back!

Terrific

  • 5 of 5

We loved the spacious decks and open concept kitchen to living area! We actually used the very top bedroom as the master, because then we didn't hear the noise from our family and could sleep later.

We try to come to the beach every summer to build lasting memories for our grandchildren.I am glad we finally found a favorite to return to!

Perfect beach location

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our family reunion at Summer Wind, and it was a great experience. The decks (shaded and sunny) gave us many hours of time outside, and the close proximity to the beach made it easy to pop back and forth when we needed to fetch something from the house. Inside, the kitchen had everything we needed to cook, along with a huge pantry area for storage. The most enjoyable room, however, was the living room with its mesmerizing views of the beach and gulf. Even before the week was over, our family vowed we would be back again next year.

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
