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!

Very comfortable and peaceful with great decks!

  • 5 of 5

Our group had an amazing week at this very comfortable home. The beach was easy to get to and there was plenty of parking. Love the living and dining furniture and the views! It was close enough to the main part of the island to not have a long drive, but far enough out so that we didn’t have to hear all of the noises. Perfect for us!!! We will be returning to stay again.

Peaceful, Relaxing, Stunning View

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at Summer Wind. We loved it just as much this time as the first time. You cannot ask for a better view. This house is right on the beach. When you walk out onto the deck you instantly feel relaxed and forget all of your cares and worries. When you are sitting in the living room you are able to see the beach and the waves from all of the huge windows overlooking the beach. We enjoyed sitting out on the decks and had a nice breeze the whole time we were there. My favorite room is the one on the very top with its own balcony....such an awesome view from this room. I love everything about this house and we are looking forward to coming back next year. We stayed double the time this year that we stayed last year and the time still flew by. Don’t know that we could ever have enough time at this beautiful house. The owner, John, is extremely accommodating and responsive and truly cares about making sure your stay is perfect. If you have any concerns be sure to let him know and he will get them corrected immediately. He can’t correct what he doesn’t know about.

6th year at Summer Wind, still a great value!

  • 4 of 5

This year was our 5th, and we still enjoy coming back. The property is well maintained, but needs attention in a few areas:

The bbq grills are falling apart; need to be replaced

No toilet paper, trash bags or paper towels; we had to go buy

previous renters need to ensure they set out the trash cans; cans were full and we had trash pilling up in the house

Owner's Response: Hi Adam, I am sorry again about the trash. The city is usually good about making a second trip when they miss a pick up but I guess they are still a little behind after Hurricane Harvey. Also, I will talk to the the cleaners about the paper shortages. there should some plus an extra in each room. I appreciate you coming back every year for the twins birthday and want to keep you happy. Thanks.

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!

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
