About the property


Flip Flops and Flamingos is your perfect bungalow located on the east end of the island just off 25th in the historic Silk Stocking district. We are only a five minute walk from the gulf waters, Pleasure Pier, beach store shopping and restaurants. We are close to everything like; the Strand historical district, Schlitterbahn, and Moody Gardens. I recommend you bring your bikes to the Island because anything you would want to do is all within cycling distance from the house.

This bungalow was recently purchased in 2014 and has been remolded as an Island Oasis! It has brand new appliances and new beach-style furnishings complete with a sleeper sofa in the living room for children or extra guest. We are excited to share our brand new vacation home with you for the 2016 Vacation Season!

This bungalow is decorated in a tropical theme with vibrant colors and never lets you forget how close you are to the beach. The back yard boasts a grill, lawn furniture and outdoor shower. We provide our guests with quality linens and towels. Beach wagon, toys and beach chairs. The kitchen is fully equipped with new cookware, dishes and appliances. Whatever you decide to do Flip Fops and Flamingos will make for an amazing stay on Galveston Island!

There are so many fun things to do on Galveston that are all within steps to just a few miles away. Many great beaches, entertainment, shopping and miles of Gulf Coast beaches. Galveston’s festivals, special events and attractions are enjoyable for all! Check the Galveston Island website to see what's happening during your stay....there is at least one festival per month on the Island. Galveston has many enjoyable activities for single and family lives. Explore the the downtown Strand area and ride horse drawn carriages. Also don't forget to visit the Elissa (a historic sail boat from 1877) or the oil rig museum, both near the Strand on Pier 21. See a movie or enjoy many of Galveston's shops & art studios. You can rent bicycles (8 blocks from the house on 17th), scooters, golf carts & Segways to enjoy the Seawall during all parts of the day or just walk the beach, which is only a few steps across the way. The stretch of Seawall located to the East of the house also offers Jet ski rentals in the Summer as well as chair and umbrella rental.

Many people also come to fish on one of Galveston's many piers (2 of which are just a couple blocks from the house) or charter a boat for more exciting catches. There are plenty of hidden coves and waterways to explore for your next fishing trip. Take the kids to Schlitterbahn, Galveston Island's amazing water park, or the NEW Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier which hosts many rides, games, and activities for all to enjoy as well as food at Bubba Gump's restaurant. You don't have to worry about parking for the Pleasure Pier, just walk 3 blocks up from the house along 25th street and you're right there! Live Bands play on the end of the pier during the summer night weekends. Don't forget other entertainment is always just a mile East from the Pier at the only Bar and restaurant over the sand on the seawall called The Beach Hut. Galveston has much to offer and explore and our home is right in the middle of all you could dream to do... it just needs you and your flip flops!!

Feel free to contact us at any time! We look forward to sharing this amazing home with you and your friends and family!

Spring Stay in Galveston

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights at this adorable cottage over Spring Break. I initially chose this rental because of the backyard, but ended up loving the inside even more. The owners have really put a lot of thought into making this place comfortable and well stocked. We've rented several VRBO homes and some don't even provide dish soap or a bottle opener. This one had everything I could think of needing - including actual usable, good quality knives, nice pots & pans, dish soap, food containers, multiple types of wine glasses, plates/cups for kids, plenty of bath towels, hand soap, etc. More importantly, the place was spotlessly clean. It was an easy 5 minute walk to the Pleasure Pier and beach. I felt very fortunate to find this place and we look forward to returning.

Owner's Response: Hello Kathy, Thank you for your kind review. So glad you enjoyed your stay. I'm excited to tell you that we are adding an outdoor shower in the backyard. I love to decorate, so I've add some new décor to the inside as well. If you visit the island again, I would love for you to stay with us. Thanks, Charlotte & Randy

Mardi Gras Fun

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Galveston and loved staying at Flip Flops & Flamingos. The house is beautifully decorated, clean and has everything you could ask for in amenities. The location is great and our dogs loved the front and back yards. We will definitely stay in this lovely home in the future.

Hospitality at its finest!!

  • 5 of 5

It takes a special person to open their home to strangers, and I believe Charlotte is one of those people. From the moment we inquired about renting this jewel I never felt like I was a bother with any question I had. The house itself was so cute with everything we needed right down to the cappuccino for the kureg.. The beds are so comfy. Super great location and a wonderful little courtyard for morning coffee.. once you get there you'll never want to leave.. (but you'll have to cuz I'll be back)

Five Stars!

  • 5 of 5

Check-in and check-out processes were quick & efficient with no issues and it was perfect for our group to have a door code instead keys to keep up with and juggle between everyone. The house and its furnishings were in excellent (new) condition with the pictures on the site representing what you can expect to see when you arrive at the home. You have an excellent location and the beach is a short walk from the home. We frequent Galveston often and will be returning to this home! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this property.

A perfect Christmas! Although this was our first stay it won't be our last. This little hide away is perfect for a family of 4 with pets. The place was immaculate when we checked in. The attention paid to taking care of guest really stood out from the coffee, fully equipped kitchen, toiletries, towels and linens, this was PERFECTION. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Galveston that wants to be near the Pleasure Pier and/or Beach, 1 1/2 blocks away. Stores and Restaurants within walking or very short driving distance. My family thanks you Charlotte and we'll be talking to you again.
