Description

Palm Beach House Rental Photos and Description

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 is raked weekly during the summer to keep the beach clean.

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 makes it appear there are lots in front of Summer Wind. This is not the case. This is a front row, ocean front home!

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered
  • wheelchair inaccessible

We will be back

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there just this past weekend as friends. We are 3 couples with 4 small kids. The beach front row location is a luxury and the view and the large decks are super! Now we are spoiled! Just watching the sunrise with a cup of coffee or late at night inside the house snuggled on the couch watching the waves crash is so relaxing! We wished we had stayed longer than 3 nights as the time went by too fast. We all made lots of memories! Thank you John for your hospitality and your friendly communication! We enjoyed every minute.

Great Ocean Front Location!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommended this beautiful home on the beach! The owner Mr. John is also great to work with. My family and I had an awesome time. The location of this home is so perfect. The view couldn't get any better. The noise was nil to none. The comfort of the home was great and the decks on the home were fabulous! We will be going back and staying longer next time. Thank You Mr. John!

Oceanfront relaxation

  • 5 of 5

After having "one of those weeks", we decided last minute to head to the coast for a quick weekend getaway. We knew we wanted oceanfront and the property had to allow pets. Summer Wind had both. So, after a very easy reservation transaction with John, we were on our way!

The house is truly front row, right on the beach! The super large windows from the living area have amazing views, and out on the deck, you can fully see all the way down the beach in both directions. Two of the bedrooms have beach views that are wonderful. The beds were comfy and the house had everything we needed to make all of our meals. The outdoor shower had hot and cold water, which was nice since it was a bit of a cooler weekend in the mornings and evenings so it was nice to have warmer water to rinse off with and bathe the sand off of our puppy.

The TV and the DVD player worked great and the large sofa was perfect for our family to curl up and watch movies at night after a long day with our toes in the sand. The large windows in the living room have the capability for the very top portion to be cracked open so that the sea breeze and sounds of the waves never leave the house.

We were very happy with our stay and would definitely consider going back!

Prime Location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented Summer Wind for our family vacation this year. We have three grandsons and 7 adult children that all joined us through out our stay. It was the perfect house for a family. The location and access to the beach was perfect. The beach was beautiful and clean and no cars on that part of the beach. An unfortunate circumstance accord that was out of our control and John's, however John went above and beyond to make sure our vacation was not ruined. Oh I need to mention that John took the time to communicate with us even though he was leaving for his honeymoon! I cannot say enough good things about this home or its owner! Thank you for a wonderful trip!

Excellent beach front house!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year at Summer Wind and we loved it just as much as last year. We really appreciate that the owner has maintained the property (noticed the deck was restained, plus new carpet, bedding, couches, and dining table since last summer).

We just love the shed that's full of sand toys and beach gear so we don't have to bring our own. And the outdoor shower is so private that we hardly use the inside showers all week. It's great to keep the beach sand out of the house, especially with kids.

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
