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 Palm Beach

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, restorations, and rebuildings.

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.

We stayed here over Christmas 2017 and thoroughly enjoyed our time here. This is a very nice, clean & comfortable beach home with beautiful views of the gulf from the master bedroom & the huge deck! We will definitely book again. A+++++!

Beautiful spot right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

The proximity to the beach was unmatched, you have a wonderful view of the ocean and the beach from the spacious wrap around deck, and the beach itself is very nice. There are dunes, beach wildflowers, and no vehicles allowed in the area that is associated with the property. And it was so quiet and peaceful at this time of year - hardly any people around!
