Overview

Galveston House Rental Photos and Description

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 countertops and adjoined by glass backsplash 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 (charcoal), 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.

The stairs are solar lit for going up and down the stairs in the evening.

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.

When you arrive a book explaining all to do is there for you so you can pour through, making it simple and easy to decide.

We provide a gift bag of stuff just to get you comfortable, such as paper towels, toilet paper, soap, dish washing soap and other toiletries to make your arrival more comfortable.

You have your personal driveway and can easily hold more than one car - up to four(!), so if you have a boat it should be easy to hold. Because the house it at the end of a cul-de-sac is absolutely no house to your left - all you see is ocean.

Just minutes away you can rent kayaks, bicycles and HUGE crazy kites

NOTE: If you should want to bring your furry friend(s), please note that only two are allowed, there will be a non-refundable fee per pet of $100 each.Two is the maximum. I'm sorry, we cannot accept cats.

Please note:

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

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

About susan pepin 949-636-5926

We are the property owners and unlike most property management companies, we truly care about your experience.

We visit the property regularly to make sure that all the little details and addressed and make the welcome bags ourselves.

Why susan pepin 949-636-5926 chose Galveston

This is one of the most affordable properties that are right on the water.

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

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. (-:

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Our favorite part of our vacation was being on the beach right in front of the house. Enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning and listening to waves of the ocean. At night there are crabs that run around on the beach, we loved taking walks at night.

All was as posted, nice and clean.

  • 5 of 5

Property was as posted. Wish the bathroom were bigger, but it still worked for us. The outside cabana shower with hot and cold water made up for it. We had a great time.

Cute little beach house☺️

  • 4 of 5

This was our second time renting this beach house. I love the location of the house. I enjoyed being able to watch my kids play on the beach while I relaxed on the balcony. Kitchen has great pans and is pretty much stocked with everything you need (not food items). We had a great time! 👍☀️🍹🌅🏊

Beautiful house, right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Cute house, perfect setting, and great location! We had a fabulous time. Susan was wonderful to work with, and she was very prompt in answering any questions we had. Wonderful to be on the beach, yet close to the downtown. The only thing I would remind you is to bring toilet paper. We were only given one roll for the week (and hey, that's no big deal, just stop on your way through town and grab some!). Very nice place, thanks for having us!
