About the property

Only the sand between you and the sea!!!

Wake up to the sights and sounds of the ocean. If you are an early riser you will appreciate the beautiful Gulf sunrises while drinking your specialty coffee from the Keurig at the breakfast nook, on the deck or an early morning stroll down the beach.

The rooms are clean, sunny and bright with large windows and patio doors letting in the amazing views of the sea and just steps to the beach. There is updated linens, décor, kitchen backsplash and the outside just painted a beautiful beachy blue! We are front row and no other homes are behind us for lots of privacy. There is wood flooring throughout the house making this an ideal environment for allergy sufferers.

Bedroom 1 has 2 Qn. beds with en suite (shower), Bedroom 2 has a Qn. bed with an ocean view, Bedroom 3 has a full bed and Bedroom 4 is the bunk room with 2 bunk beds. Bathroom 2 is shared but has a separate area for the sink/vanity from the shower/toilet. It can be used by a few people at the same time.

After playing in the ocean, building sand castles and taking a walk on the beach (barefoot of course), take a break from the sun under the covered picnic table area on the upper or lower deck to sip a lemonade in the shade and feel the ocean breezes. There is a blender to make your favorite tropical drinks or shakes. Our kitchen is well stocked with many sizes of cookware, utensils, serving dishes and dinnerware, glassware, flatware and cutlery. Games can be found in the bunk room closet when the sun goes down – board games, puzzles or Lincoln logs are good ways to spend an evening or there are movies to watch and books to read when you just want to sit and relax. We are sure you will find wonderful ways to make many fun filled memories with your family/friends or just the two of you. For your convenience there is WiFi, cable TV and a washer & dryer to use for your convenience. Our beach home is big enough for a family of 12 or just right for the romantic get-away. Take a minute to write in our journal to let us know what your favorite things were to do!

Bird watching is a fun past time also – pelicans, seagulls and sand pipers are just a few that will entertain you.

“Barefoot on the Beach” is located directly on the beach (Terramar Beach) which is in between Sea Isle and Pointe West; 17 miles from the Seawall and about a 20-25 minute drive from Moody Gardens, Schlitterbahn, Miniature Golf, and many restaurants and shops.

Hope you enjoy our home as much as we do!

Good Times at Galveston Island from the Stan and Janet Nedved family

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Bryan and Diane, for an absolutely wonderful gulf beach experience at your Barefoot at the Beach home. We haven't taken a family vacation for several years and our group of twelve came with a variety of ages, from babies to adults. I can safely say that we were able to find things to do, either at or near the beach home or downtown Galveston, to ensure every single person had fun! We found the local people to be extremely friendly and helpful. The house was fully equipped and it felt just like home! The kids enjoyed crabbing so much that there was rarely a night they didn't go out! They practiced catch and release after they showed us their treasures! Some of the other things we enjoyed were Pleasure Pier, Schlitterbahn, Jimmy's on the Pier, Bishop's Palace, Rainforest Cafe, Magic Carpet miniature golf, go carts, baseball cages, Houston Astros baseball game, downtown Galveston, and many good eating places. Tropical storm Cindy didn't even dampen our spirits as there were things to do inside with all the games and movies you had at the beach house. It was even enjoyable watching the crashing waves from the upstairs deck! We would possibly entertain the thought of coming back someday. Thank you for sharing Barefoot on the Beach with our family.

Great Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The owner, Bryan, happened to be in town during our stay. When we arrived my teen daughter noticed there were no hammocks like in the pictures we I text Bryan thinking they might be put away somewhere. He lets me know they were torn, but tells me my daughter is not going to be left disappointed and brings over brand new hammock chairs and also a new fire pit, which we used to make s'mores. We have rented other vacation homes and you couldn't meet a nicer owner. We enjoyed our visit with him.

We had the best time ever at this home....nothing beats being right on the beach with no crowds...drinking coffee on the balcony early in the morning, crab hunting when it gets dark with flash lights...we also had perfect weather. The home is fully stocked with everything...dishes, cookware, towels, beach toys, a canopy, chairs, was a blast.

We went to town a few times to eat at The Spot and Fisherman's Wharf...and to Pleasure Pier. We got fresh seafood from Katie's Market at Pier 19 and grilled it at the house. We took a ferry ride across to the Bolivar Peninsula...lots to do!! We loved our vacation in Galveston, this home and location will not disappoint. Thanks for sharing your home with us...we will be back.

Cute beach house on quiet stretch of the beach

  • 5 of 5

Barefoot on the Beach is a bit away from Galveston's busy areas which allowed us to have a quieter time on a less crowded beach. It took approx. 25 min. to drive in to town to eat at the many restaurants in Galveston. The house itself is great and the kitchen has everything you could possibly need! Wonderful stay!

Excellent Property

  • 4 of 5

We have rented many properties through Home Away and VRBO, and this was by far the cleanest and best stocked property. Plenty of nice towels and linens, and we had everything we needed in the kitchen. Access to the beach was awesome and we had a beautiful weekend. The only problem with the property is that it is quite close to the busy road. And we would have liked more cable channels. Some of us are elderly and didn't want to spend all our time on the beach and also at night we would have liked to watch some tv. Overall, I would highly recommend the property and would stay there again.

Owner's Response: Marcia, Thank you for the great comments, they are truly appreciated. We do apologize about the number of TV channels. Unfortunately, we recently upgraded the service, actually adding channels, but the "work order" had not been "closed out" by the service provider. We've contacted the service provider, the issue has been resolved. Now we have over 250 channels for our guests enjoyment. Sincerely, Bryan
