Tiki Island is a private community located across the causeway bridge before Galveston. This custom built home is located on the bay. Relax in one of the European designed recliners or experience a sunset on the bay from any of the decks. You will enjoy the sights and sounds of pelicans and seagulls as they cruise the perimeter of the island. The location of this property allows for a clear view of the sunset.

We built this house in 2006 and love to come down and relax or drop the boat in the water and head out to West Bay, Greens Lake or the Jetty's. Our parents use to rent in Bayou Vista and take us fishing in a little 14' wood boat with a 9.9 Scott-Attwater outboard. We dreamed for years what it would be like to own a property on Tiki Island. After renting on Tiki for several years we decided to build our own place. Its our pleasure to share the dream and reality of staying on Tiki Island.
Tiki on the Bay purchased this house in 2006
We chose Tiki Island because of the quick access on and off the island. After a day of fishing or relaxing you do not have to venture far to get to a restaurant on Galveston Island. The IMAX Theaters at Moody Gardens is open year round. The north side of the Island (Jones Bay) is generally calm in the spring and summer months and you can enjoy watching wave-runners and boats headed out on a fishing excursions daily. Tiki is located close to the beaches and local restaurants. We enjoy shopping in the Historical Strand Area on Galveston Island. The Village of Tiki has its own police and fire department so you can enjoy the Village of Tiki Island along with the safety and security our community offers.
Enjoy watching the brown pelicans cruise the island during an incredible sunset. Fishing at night under the dock lights is always a fun time with the family. Easy access to the Galveston Island complex.
I have been renting bay homes for many years in Tiki Island, this tops them all! The house is BEAUTIFUL and spacious. The Elevator was very useful for unloading and loading and also for my 92 yr old mother. We hope to return for a week next summer, Gordon is great and very easy to contact., Thank you for making our stay enjoyable.
The fishing was also great.....I highly recommend this home.
The reviews are all accurate, could not have asked for better experience, Gordon was great, made sure we had and knew where everything was to make our stay enjoyable. Elevator really made unloading and loading a breeze, was also good for my mother in law. Really spacious home, furnished with everything you need, close to the beach and Strand. Would stay here again.
I knew from previous reviews that this would be an amazing vacation! It was so much better than I had hoped it would be. The house is very large, 4 floors, 3.5 bathrooms, large kitchen, 4 decks over looking the bay, quiet and peaceful, but so close to the beach, Moody Gardens and Pleasure Pier. Gordon, the owner was so very helpful. His property is so well thought out, clean and very open. Highly recommend!!!
Our family had the opportunity to stay in this house for two nights and wish we had booked more. This was the best beach house I've ever stayed at. The quality of this rental was above the rest. The owners even took us and our kids out on the boat to catch speckled trout! The service is incredible and anyone wanting to make a family trip in the summer to galveston should use this house. I recommend it to anyone. Lots of space, beauitful views, clean facilities, close to galveston and other ammenities (moody gardens, shlitterbahn, etc.). Loved our time here. Simply AMAZING!
Me and my extended family rents and shares a beach house every summer. It can be difficult to find a home large enough to accommodate such a large group (14 of us) that is comfortable and affordable. Tiki on the Bay was all of that and more for us this year. We enjoyed our stay so much that during our trip this year we were discussing staying in this home next year.
First of all, the owner was extremely easy to work with, was easy to communicate with, and very accommodating both before or trip and during. He gave me several methods to contact him and replied to my questions and requests promptly.
The home is a beautiful multi-level home on the water on Tiki Island. The views were amazing - especially from one of the 3 decks. The bed rooms were very comfortable, clean, and inviting. The 3 1/2 bathrooms were spotless, had cute updated fixtures, and ample for all 14 of us to share. The main living area was open to the living and dining areas which made it easy for the whole family to be together without everyone on top of each other. The living room had plenty of seating for those wanting to watch a movie or relax and just be together. The Gameroom on the 4th floor was our teenagers getaway. They played ping pong, invited their younger cousins to play games with them, and enjoyed having a space to just hang out. We brought fishing rods and had fun teaching the younger kids how to fish off of the deck.
This home was not just comfortable it was also beautifully decorated and well supplied. We didn't have to bring extra pots, pans, utensils, dishes, etc. In fact, we were able to prepare and enjoy one of our family favorites - low country boil (like a crab boil). Everyone had a seat either at the table in the dining room (seats 8) or the large island (seats 6).
There were fun activities within short driving distances that our family really enjoyed. There are multiple beaches (private and public) within a short distance of the house. Our family tried several different beaches during the day and in the evening, and enjoyed all of them. We ate at the Rainforest Cafe one evening and rode a fun ride that every age in our family enjoyed. We also had fun shopping at Murdoch's for fun souvenirs. Also, there were several grocery stores that were just a short drive away.
Tiki on the Bay was not just a beautiful home, it brought a whole wonderful experience for our family. We loved every minute of our time there - can't wait to go back!
My family and a group of close friends rented Tiki on the Bay June 15-18. The house was more than roomy enough to accommodate all of us and allow us to spread out. We had everything we needed to have a wonderful vacation and Gordon even gave us tips on local places to to eat! We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone else that is looking for a large, beautiful house owned by awesome people!
