About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 6

This beautifully decorated townhouse sits adjacent to the Galveston Country Club, on Lake Como. You can walk to the club to play golf on one of the oldest golf course in Texas, enjoy the pool or have a quiet dinner at the club. All guests have access to use the club amenities, golf and dinner are not included in the rental fee.

You will want to rush to pour the martinis and sit on the deck overlooking Lake Como to enjoy the unobstructed sunset, they are amazing. Sitting on the deck you can enjoy watching the boats on Lake Como as they head out to Galveston Bay, watch the flocks of pelicans and laugh at the sounds of the seagulls.

If you like to cook, this kitchen has it all, the owners have paid attention to every detail. The decorator subtle colors are restful to your soul and you will exhale in this beautiful place. Come for a long weekend, come for a week, you will find this a great base for your Galveston adventures.

Further Details: Tour the pre-1900 mansions that survived the storm, look for shells on the beaches and enjoy the Strand and the fabulous restaurants, Galveston is a treasure find.

We bought this wonderful town home to be our weekend place, and have rushed across the causeway on Friday to the sunset and martinis for several years. With the addition of five grandchildren, we needed a bigger house, and have moved to another house on the island, but could not give up our little retreat. It is our hideaway and we love it and you will too!

We will consider a month to month during the winter. Come south and enjoy the sunsets, the birds, pelicans galore! We are on the migration path for the birds, and the white pelican arrive before the holidays! Golf, the pool, dinner and great Bloody Mary's at the club, Galveston is a great place to learn to exhale, and sooooo close to home in Houston.

Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

A perfect spot for a weekend getaway or extended stay! So much to see and do in this very convenient location with access to wonderful amenities, the bay, and beach. The house is very clean and well maintained, and the garage was a great benefit for storing away the vehicle packed with all the beach necessities. Enjoy your coffee in the morning on the balcony overlooking the bay while watching the birds, or grill up some burgers in the evening and take in the incredible sunset. Everything you need is within walking distance or a short drive - golf, swimming, fishing, beach, and dining. A great place for families or a romantic getaway, this location has something for everyone. Thanks for sharing your perfect spot with us.

Beautiful View

  • 4 of 5

This is a darling condo in a great location. However I wish this was pointed out in the other reviews and that's why I am: If you are a late sleeper or on an earlier time zone the master bedroom is very bright very early. But if you love to play golf early this is the best spot. Please also note there is no TV in master bedroom.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased you enjoyed our fantastic Sunset House, and as you stated, the master bedroom actually faces west and there are shades that can be lowered in the bedroom. We have found that most people come for the views and the time outside, and there are no tvs in any of the bedrooms. Glad you had a good time, hopenyou will come again.

Long weekend vacation

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable, very clean, tastefully decorated.

Everything was in perfect order.

Amasing views from two balconies.

Superb location - very quiet and not overcrowded with two very good restaurants, clean pool, excellent golf course.

Also good for fishing and kayaking. There is a company just three miles away at Jamaica Beach called K6 water sports. They will bring a kayak to you.

Overall five stars plus.

AMAZING Sunset & Family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved our weekend away from the city at this gorgeous townhome in Galveston. The pictures were exactly as we found the property and it was decorated with amazing taste and comfort in mind. The kids loved the room with twin beds and said that they were very comfortable. The king bed in the master is fantastic and I think we got a better night sleep than at our own house! The sunset is the BEST on the island and we would rush home from the pool and the beach to make sure that we were on the balcony for sunset. The views are really breathtaking! I would highly recommend this property to a couple wanting to get away, a girls weekend, or for a family to visit the island. We cant wait to come back!! Thanks Owners for letting us "borrow" your bit of paradise! :)

Relaxing Week

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent the 4th of July week at the Sunset House. It was the perfect place to spend a busy week. We were close to beach and next door to the country club, but away from the crowds. We were not far from many good restuarants and activities. The condo was both clean and well decorated. It could fit our family of five. We would come again.

Great Price For Nice Place

  • 5 of 5

My wife, two kids and I stayed a long weekend and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. This two bedroom was well furnished, close to the beach and had access to the Galveston Country Club. Great price and does not require a week minimum. Perfect for a family of 4-6!
