Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms/1 Bath Sleeps 8! WIFI - Quiet Beach - Dog Friendly!!!

Absolute Beachfront is Literally On The Beach!

The second you go down the stairs you are on sand.

You can wake up to a floor to ceiling view of the ocean and gaze on the exclusive beach - it will almost feel like your own. New granite counter tops and adjoined by glass back splash with soothing tones. Dolphin sightings are common and once in a while people riding Arabian horses. Plenty of beach for you to throw the ball if you should have a dog. The house is only 7 minutes from stores, shops, grocery, restaurants and only 10 minutes from famous Pleasure Pier. You can rent kayaks, bicycles etc, but in your private storage room there are numerous Adirondack chairs for underneath while barbecuing (gas), chairs to bring on to the beach, boogie boards and tons of beach toys, fishing rods and kites.

Everything you need is there! Pots, pans, utensils, blender, toaster, dishes, knives, cutting boards, chip/dip set, wine glasses, water glasses etc.

We have a total of three flat screen TV's. A 42 in. in living with a sound bar with bluetooth to connect your phones. Everything is connected through the X1 Xfinity system with voice remote. Netflix and a Bluray player are available in the living room.

There is a private cabana shower (both hot and cold water) and fireplace for romantic nights. Galveston has beautiful museums, ghost tours, boat and fishing excursions, horseback riding (which you can do on the beach off season) dolphin sighting tours and numerous parades, both themed for adults and children alike.

You have your personal driveway and can easily hold more than one car - up to four. The house is at the end of a cul-de-sac and has absolutely no house to your left - all you see is ocean.

Just minutes away you can rent kayaks, bicycles, paddle boards, jet skis etc.

NOTE: If you should want to bring your furry friend's, that's great! there will be a non-refundable fee per pet of $100 each.I am super dog friendly - there is a doggie door and the balcony is enclosed so your baby's can look at anyone walking by. I'm sorry, we cannot accept cats.

NEW! We now have Google Chromecast allowing you to stream Netflix, YouTube, Pandora, HBO Go, and directly from your phone or tablet to the TV! Also free Netflix attached to the X1 cable box. Just press the blue microphone on the remote and say "Netflix" and you will have access to all the great programming.

Please note:

Rates are subject to additional charges including tax, cleaning, linens / insurance.

doggies are welcomed - we just need to know so we can make accommodations for them!!!!

I am the owner - please feel free to call me for any reason!

Why Susan Burke 409-795-8488 chose Galveston

This is one of the most affordable properties that is oceanfront.

There is no obstruction so you see right out into the waves. The house has been extensively refurbished and it is extremely private. You can frequently see dolphins from the house and occasionally Arabian horses. It is only 10 minutes away from Pleasure Pier and 7 minutes away from restaurants and outdoor activities, but in 7 minutes you are back at home with peace and quiet.

NOTE: During peak season (starts May 28th) the house books Monday to Monday and has a full week rental policy.

What makes this house unique

You can watch the sunset in the swing below, or enjoy just sitting with a floor to ceiling view of the ocean on the couch. Two huge sliding glass doors open so you can have the ocean air or you can put on the fireplace which is really romantic. In the morning you literally prop up and see ocean waves.

This cabana shower is hot and cold so you can talk a private shower as the sun comes up, sunset, or under the stars.

Horses on the beach and dolphins are not uncommon to see,

There are very few people on the beach so it is private and quiet.

You have your own storage unit filled with barbeques (both gas and charcoal) lots of toys for little one and lots of extra chairs, floats, boogie boards etc for fun in and out of the water.

Another plus!

I am the owner, not a property management company, so I take your experience personally and will go above and beyond to making sure you beyond happy. I am local so anything you should need I am here for you!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have been going to Galveston for years - how did I not know about this place?



My kids went crazy because I dodn't have to get myself together to get everything inot the car and drive - I could just sleep in and they would just run down the stairs and off they go; I didn't have to worry about them at all. Plus I liked that I could make breakfast for everyone and could see the entire ocean. (-:

The location was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the sunrises from the top porch every morning and walked right down to the beach every day! In the heat of the day we enjoyed the covered downstairs porch swing! We had a great time!

Wonderful view!!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful time staying in this house right on the beach! My grandparents enjoyed sitting on the deck watching others play on the beach and water. However, there is no cover on the deck so thankfully we brought an extra canopy that we set up to provide shade. The beach path is right next to the house and made the trip much easier with a toddler in tow to walk to and from the water! There is a sign on the dunes saying to watch out for snakes, but we only saw two bunnies. We certainly appreciated Susan allowing for our dogs to be in the rental as well. We loved taking them for walks every morning as well as nightly crabbing. As first time beach goers, they also had a blast taking naps by the beach and playing in the water. We brought extra towels and linens just in case and the washer and dryer provided useful when needing to run a small load throughout the week. There is plenty of counter space and and room to eat at the dining room table which was great for our family. With the house being right on the water, there is understandably some wear and tear on the inside and outside, but nothing that took away from our stay! Overall, we absolutely loved our time on the beach and Susan made herself available to answer any questions when needed. We would definitely recommend this rental as a pet friendly, affordable place right on the water!!

Walk out from the house and onto the beach in 2 minutes. You couldn't ask for better views and feeling the breeze right off the ocean than this place.
