About Gaard Egeland

'Beach House' as she's known in the family, was purchased to accommodate visits for our ever growing family abroad. As with 'Love Shack' (#225951), 'Beach House' is now available for vacation rentals when not in use by our American-Norwegian brood. We take pride in creating comfortable spaces that foster easy interactions, relaxed living, and lasting memories for our family and now yours.

Gaard Egeland purchased this house in 2010

Why Gaard Egeland chose Sunny Beach

Sunny Beach simply offers the best of both worlds. We love the natural beauty of West End beaches but also appreciate the convenience of quick access to attractions like Schlitterbahn, Moody Gardens, great restaurants, and The Strand. That's why we insisted on Sunny Beach. A small beach community with an active HOA, Sunny Beach is clean, well maintained, and natural. The many full time residents here take care of each other and always have a friendly wave for our guest. You'll hate to leave as much as we always do.

What makes this house unique

'Beach House' boasts two wonderfully wide, ocean view decks on each level. Spanning the full length of the structure, these decks will beg you to enjoy your coffee outside while watching the sunrise, host an ice cream party for the kids, or step out of the master suite for a glass of wine at sunset. After a fun filled day at the beach, enjoy a tropical indulgence in our outdoor hot/cold shower.

When night falls, it's time to pop the popcorn, snuggle up on the comfy couches, and enjoy a movie or two on our large HDTV.

The perfect location where you get the best of both worlds on beautiful Sunny Beach. The closest west end beach community to Galveston's east end, only a few minutes from Moody Gardens, Schlitterbahn and Galveston downtown and the Strand area.

Incredibly Clean Vacation Home & Wonderful Views

  • 5 of 5

The property was so clean that we felt like it was our own home. We just walked in and started to feel like we were on vacation. The home was arranged perfectly with a large open living space upstairs, as well. There was even a full bath in the upstairs area. We had great views from upstairs, and also downstairs where the bedrooms were located. It was a few blocks to the beach for a leisurely walk.

Perfect Beach Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our son and another family that has two boys. Perfect amount of bedrooms and beds. The bunk room worked out great for the boys with the bunk beds and trundle. The house was so clean and the 3 full bathrooms worked out great when it was time to get ready for dinner. The house is in a quiet community just minutes from everything. It's got 2 full decks with great ocean views. A great place to relax and listen to the waves. It's just a short walk to the beach where you've got the choice on the right to set up where you can drive on the beach or go left where no vehicles are allowed. The owner was great to deal with and responded quickly to any questions we had. I would highly recommend this home.

Galveston Island rental

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed staying in this home. Short walk to the beach and a good view from both of the decks. Vacationed in Galveston to visit my daughter, son in law and our Grandchildren. We really enjoyed our stay and would rent this home again!

Crisp, clean and perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just stayed there with our daughters and a friend for mardi gras weekend and it was absolutely beautiful! It's on the west end of the island so it offers peace and quiet but it's only 5 minutes outside of town. The rooms and kitchen were well stocked and we met others that lived in the houses nearby whom were so nice! Definitely a nice relaxing place! Thank you Mr. Egeland from the Lopez family!

Convenient Location

  • 3 of 5

More than anything, this house is close enough to all attractions and restaurants, yet far enough away to not feel crowded. The beach access is about 500ft give or take away from the house. The house seemed to be well stocked with most of the everyday essentials for a stay at the beach. The owner was very accommodating to our requests, and is very specific in his instructions and house rules. We all had a great time.

Owner's Response: The house is located in a great location, best of both worlds. I am glad you enjoyed the beach house and your stay. Thank you for the compliments. I am not sure why it posted as 3 stars. It must have been a glitch since there are only positive comments from you. Gaard.
