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!
