Galveston House Rental Photos and Description

This two bedrooms, two full baths beach house was renovated in 2011, three years after Hurricane Ike made landfall in Galveston. The house is perfect for a small family, pet friendly with a large wrap around deck. Located in Palm Beach, one mile walk or drive to Galveston Island State Park, and 7 miles to Walmart, Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn.

Take sunset walks on the private and clean beach where vehicles are not permitted. A huge deck is available to enjoy the ocean breeze, have a barbeque with friends and family or to just enjoy a full ocean view. This beach house is your perfect beach get a way.

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.

The house is in a quiet neighborhood at the west end of Galveston Island on the beach side. The wide sand beach is perfect for kids to play on the beach, fly their kites or just to have fun on the sand and for adults to take long beach walk

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.

Perfect for family!

  • 5 of 5

This home is great for a family of 4 or more, and could certainly entertain day guests with comfort. It was clean, the A/C was great, and access to the beach was the best we've ever experienced. The house was well stocked with essentials, and whatever we needed in addition, we could easily grab with a quick trip to Walmart, which is very near. We enjoyed the deck every morning and evening, as there are two nice views of the ocean, and depending on the time of day, you could get sufficient coverage from the sun. The walk to the beach was about 1 minute (!) and it was closed to public vehicles. The beach was relatively clean for being a private area, and there was plenty of room on the busy weekends to not only have some clear space of your own, but it was also safe enough to leave your larger belongings out overnight. The house has a nice first level patio/carport for grilling and relaxing, and use of the shower and hose before making your way up to the house so you can leave most of the sand behind. And the best part? Not one mosquito. And I hear that's normal in this neighborhood! Tanya is more than helpful in the process of the rental, and very easy to connect with if there is an emergency. Thank you Tanya! It was a great vacation. :)

Wonderful family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights at this beach-front property, and had a wonderful family vacation! The house was updated and very clean and comfortable. The kitchen was very nice, had a dishwasher, and plenty of room to prepare easy meals. The views were beautiful of the ocean and beach, and so convenient to walk right to the beach in just a few minutes. We had three adults and two children in the house and it was plenty of room. We had two bedrooms with queen beds and two bathrooms. There is also a bunk-bed in a space at the end of the hall that our granddaughter loved, and enough room there to set up our pack-n-play for our baby grandson. We especially enjoyed the large deck on the house where we could sit and enjoy the sight and sound of the ocean waves any time of day. The beach was not crowded at all in this spot, and it was clean and so pleasant. There are no cars allowed on the beach, so we felt safe with our four-year-old granddaughter running around on the sand and to the water. We also could easily drive back into Galveston for groceries or to walk down the Strand to get ice-cream and shop. King's Confectionary was a definite winner! We will definitely reserve this house again for a beach get-away!

ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!!!!!! The beach house was so much more than I dreamed it would be. Perfect location, and everything we needed to make us feel like home was available as soon as we opened the door. My family and I will definitely be visiting again !

Gritty Goddess Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Our experience at this home was very good. The home was clean, the furniture was comfortable, it was well stocked and very near the beach. The large front porch made us feel like Ocean Goddesses and the gate on the porch was much appreciated in helping to keep our furbaby inside. The location to the beach and town amenities is great, we were only minutes from Moody Gardens where the race took place. The only problem we encountered is that the outside porch furniture is showing it's age and we found it difficult to seat us all.
