Located in Palm Beach, one mile walk or drive to Galveston Island State Park, and 7 miles to Walmart, Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn.

The living area is equipped with a decorative fireplace, TV and DVD player. Two bedrooms has a queen sized bed with a bunk bed and a pulled out bed in an open area right outside the bedrooms.

About Tanya & Matthew Nguyen

We bought this house shortly after Hurricane IKE in 2009. The construction project to renovate this house was long and costly but we absolutely fell in love with our new beach house and would do it again. The neighborhood is quiet and a perfect place to get away from it all.

Why Tanya & Matthew Nguyen chose Galveston

Why did we buy this house? Our initial intention was to help rebuild Galveston after the devastation of Hurricane IKE. The spontaneous decision transformed into a lot of hard work of clean ups, restore and rebuild.

What makes this house unique

This is no doubt a perfect house to get away from it all. Surrounded by the ocean waves and sea breeze. A quiet neighborhood where neighbors take time to wave hello at crossing on the beach or passing by as you are sitting on the deck.

Comforts of Home at Fabulous Location

  • 4 of 5

Fantastic view and only steps away from the beach. Wow! We could have cooked up a storm in the well appointed kitchen but opted for sandwiches, cereal and frozen pizza and more time at the beach. The deck is incredible. We loved the outdoor shower to help keep the beach outside. We had a storm with probably 35+mph winds. We were not used to the movement you experience in a house on stilts, but it is solidly built, well maintained and beautifully decorated with multiple high end features.

Wonderful Family Home

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place to stay, especially for the kids. The home was spacious and the location was great! We found it extreme comfortable with all the amenities we needed. The house was also far enough away from the main Galveston beaches that we never felt overcrowded (and this was during spring break). It was the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the time. We would gladly book this house again.

Great Family Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a lovely time over Thanksgiving - Mom, 3 adult kids, and 1 dog. This property was perfect for our stay with nice sleeping space and nice get-together space in the living room and over meals. The kitchen was very nice for our needs as we prepared several meals. Perhaps the nicest thing of all was the closeness to the beach - literally a 1 minute walk away! It was terrific seeing the waves from the windows and from the wonderfully large wrap-around porch. Walking on the beach and relaxing at the house was very enjoyable for all of us!
