Galveston House Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 10 - 4 bedroom, 4 FULL baths, 2 stories of direct Gulf Beach view!

Beachfront and literally right next to the dune walkover. Stunning and unobstructed views of the ocean from 2 large balconies. Enjoy your perfect day in paradise at this exclusive 4 bedroom/4 full bath beachfront home, accommodating 10 comfortably and located in the beautiful resort of Pointe West. High speed wireless access, central air and heat, Cable TV (5 TV's), Dishwasher, Microwave, Washer/Dryer.

You won't want to leave this house, but you must wander out to enjoy all of the amenities offered by Pointe West! If you want access to the beach club and amenities, there is a one-time $25 fee for your entire party for your stay. In 2015, this is changing to a $10/person ($5/person Sept. 9th to March 1st) for access. This is payable when you register at the beach club when you arrive. At the beach club, you have a large infinity edge pool with an inviting bubbly hot tub, with an 8,000 square foot Gulf-front beach club including a children's pool and play area, 20,000 square feet of sundecks, fitness center, all while watching the breathtaking sunsets. On the bay-side you have the Sunset Pool Club with a pool, lazy river, and hot tub, plus lagoons for fishing, crabbing, kayaking, and canoeing. No smoking/no pets.

The beach is regularly cleaned by the homeowners association and this special stretch of beach is also closed to vehicles, making it very family friendly. The house is also child friendly with a pack-n-play, high chair and 2 stairway gates for your use. There is also a charcoal grille, 4 beach chairs and a cart to roll it over the dune walkover to the beach. The kitchen is well stocked with the equipment you need to cook a fabulous meal.

You will feel the beautiful seclusion at this ocean get-away, but you are only 30 minutes away from the Galveston Seawall including attractions such as:

Moody Gardens (Aquarium, rainforest pyramid, adventure pyramid for kids, golf course, IMAX movies and much more), Schlitterbahn water park, The new Pleasure Pier attraction and Many great restaurants and shops

Only 10 minutes away from Jamaica Beach, which offers gas, grocery, some shops and a couple restaurants. Horseback riding on the beach or gulf side is available for an additional fee in Jamaica Beach.

A little further into Galveston, and there are many historic attractions such as the Moody Mansion, The Strand (shopping and restaurants), the historic Opera house and more. Also Galveston offers a wealth of some of the best fishing charters in the Gulf for the sports oriented.

We had a wonderful week with our entire family at Neptune's Nest! We had a lot of beach and pool time plus a day trip to Galveston! We try to do this every couple of years and we will be back! Highly recommend!

Very well-stocked and clean beachfront house

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented the Neptune's Nest for a family vacation with our 2 grown children. their spouses and our 18-months old granddaughter. We found this beachfront house to be very clean, spacious, and well stocked. We did not have to pack the baby gate, high chair, Pack-N-Play, and baby beach toys as they were all available at the house. Our family really enjoyed sitting on the balcony and taking in the beautiful and unobstructed view of the beach. Todd, the property owner, was very responsive and provided us with all the necessary information prior to our arrival.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful rental property! The house had everything we needed, it was close to the beach (which was clean and car-free), and the beach club with a lazy river was just a short drive away. Todd was super helpful and responsive from booking to check-out. We would definitely stay here again!

Relaxing and convenient vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed at Neptune's Nest. Its proximity to the beach was ideal for our young kids. We enjoyed time at the beach, in the pool close by and even went to Schlitterbaun for the day. My kids are asking to come back and stay in the same place again! The owner was very responsive and helpful. Definitely recommend!

Loved Neptune's Nest

  • 5 of 5

My granddaughter said our family vacation this year was the best so far! We loved being able to walk out of the house and be right at the crossover to the beach. The view of the ocean was incredible so we spent time on the balconies and in the hammocks. The house was clean and was equipped with everything we needed. Todd was enjoyable to work with and very quick to respond to my many questions. We will definitely book Neptune's Nest again.

Best beach house ever!

  • 5 of 5

Once again, and for the 4th time, we have greatly enjoyed Neptune's Nest! Todd is amazing to work with and his house is perfect every time! Location is fabulous, beaches were super clean, water was great, and hit up some new restaurants in the area. Truly Todd is the best resource for a perfectly located and stocked home for any size group. We will be back yet again very soon!
