***NOTICE*** THE WEBSITE IS HAVING DIFFICULTY WITH OUR MAP AND LOCATION. OUR BEACH HOUSE IS LOCATED ON GALVESTON ISLAND NOT TIKI ISLAND. THE EXACT LOCATION IS ON THE WEST END OF GALVESTON ISLAND, IN TERRAMAR SUBDIVISION, AT 4115 TEMPRANO DRIVE, GALVESTON TEXAS, 77554.
Our large picturesque beach home will bring you days of relaxation, enjoyment, and comfort! It is located in Terramar Beach Subdivision, in Galveston Texas at 4115 Temprano Drive, 77573. When you first drive up to our property, you will notice a large covered outside area with an awesome grill, small fire pit, large picnic table, relaxing porch swing, and many lounge areas for family and friends to gather. We also have a built in fish table on the edge of the downstairs outside area for cleaning all the fish you will be bringing in from your morning fishing adventures on the bay! The lot directly in front of the home is ours, so family and friends can really spread out and throw a frisbee, toss a football, or do whatever activity they are interested in that requires extra space. After coming in from the beach, pool, or bay, we have a downstairs bathroom and hot and cold outside shower that will bring convenience and refreshment after a fun filled day! In our nice sized garage, we have a large refrigerator/freezer to add to the convenience of outside cooking and refreshment.
Once you are upstairs and enter our home, you will notice a beautifully decorated kitchen, dining area, and living room with a large open floor plan and full length windows covering the entire wall of the open living areas. The ocean views can be seen clearly from all three living areas including kitchen, dining area, and den. The kitchen is equipped with a large refrigerator/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, blender, coffee pot, and crock pot for your convenience. A neat and tidy laundry area is closeted to the side of the kitchen with washer and dryer, lots of overhead storage, mini ironing board, and iron. The dining area has a large table that will seat 4 people very comfortably and an additional bar area with 3 bar stools for more seating. The living room has two full size sofa sleepers, a love seat, a lounge chair, and a big screen TV and DVR player. A separate door leads outside from the living/ dining area onto a huge covered deck with large outside table with seating for 6, two lay down lounge chairs, and four additional full size chairs with end tables to enjoy that outside meal, card game, or just relaxation. There is also a child gate at the edge of the deck so little ones and toddlers can stay safely in the front, away from the stairs.
Once back inside, after leaving the main family area, there is a nice sized bathroom with double sinks and full shower. The bedroom to the right has two sets of bunk beds with bottom bunk on one side being double sized. The bedroom to the left of the bathroom has a full size queen bed and one set of twin bunk beds. It also has a full size baby crib and comfy rocking chair, and there is a mini hi-chair and baby gate stored in the closet if needed. All mattresses on all bunk beds have been switched out with plush full sized Serta mattresses for a great night's sleep! The third level of the home has the coveted secluded master with two double sized beds, large bath with double sink and full shower, large walk in closet, and large covered outside deck directly off the master with beautiful ocean views. This deck has two lounge chairs to lay in the sun, and two additional patio chairs for relaxation.

Any special occasions such as weddings, receptions, family reunions, prom parties, senior trips, fraternity or sorority parties, large birthday parties, and graduation parties are not allowed at any time.
All reservations are screened, including online reservations. Adults cannot rent properties on behalf of underage quests, no exceptions - this is grounds for eviction and forfeiture of all monies.
Check in is 4pm and check out is 11pm. Flexible check in and check out may be available depending on renters leaving before you or coming after you. Ask homeowner for availability. No more than 12 individuals are allowed to rent our home. And, if renters have guests over during the day, no more than 20 individuals allowed on the property at one time. Cars are limited to a total of 6 vehicles. 4 vehicles in the driveway, and two vehicles can be parked to the left of the home ('to the left' as if you are standing in the driveway and looking directly at the garage) in front of the empty lot. BY NO MEANS ARE RENTERS ALLOWED TO PARK ANYWHERE ELSE ON CUL-DE-SAC. If a boat or trailer is pulled behind a vehicle than only 4 additional vehicles are allowed. NOTE: AS OF 8/15, IT WAS BROUGHT TO OUR ATTENTION THAT RVS/MOTOR HOMES PARKED AT OUR HOME ARE AGAINST DEED RESTRICTIONS IN TERRAMAR BEACH SUBDIVISION. SO, WE WILL NO LONGER BE ABLE TO HOST GUESTS WHO NEED TO BRING SUCH VEHICLES. SORRY FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE.
Loud music and noise is prohibited. Non street-licensed vehicles (such as 4 wheelers, go carts, dirt bikes, scooters, ATVs, etc) are not permitted. The property is non smoking. No smoking is allowed in the house or anywhere on the property. Fireworks are not allowed anywhere on the property.
My husband and I have 4 children and three grandchildren. My husband and all our children were 'BOI' (born on the island) and we all have a huge place in our hearts for the wonderful city of Galveston! We live 45 minutes away in League City, Texas, and always enjoy our relaxing drive onto the island and the fun and memories we make at our lovely vacation home. We are completely confident that you will have the same love for this historic town and the relaxation and peacefulness you will find when staying in our home will keep you wanting to visit again and again.
Valerie Custer purchased this house in 2010
We chose to buy this home in Terramar beach because of the quiet and friendly atmosphere of the subdivision. And, for those who like a little more excitement, the beach for sunning, the subdivision pool for swimming, and the marina for boating is just a short walk away. If nightlife in Galveston is what you are looking for, there is plenty to do and experience with fun lounges and great restaurants! Shopping on the strand is also a huge attraction and the kiddos do not want to miss a trip to the Rocky Mountain Candy and Ice Cream Parlor!
We chose to purchase our little slice of paradise when we fell in love with this large beach home with it's huge covered decks and wonderful ocean views. Whether you are outside sitting in the swing on the lower level enjoying the ocean breeze, laying on the loungers on the main level deck enjoying the sun, or having a peaceful rest on the upper deck right outside of the master bedroom, you will love the huge areas to enjoy the outdoors and make memories with family and friends. The garage bathroom and outside hot and cold shower brings so much convenience to your stay as well as the large grill or fire pit for evening meals.
This was an excellent selection for ourselves, our 2 sons and their families. Everything was as promised (the photos do not due justice; the actual rental property is much nicer). There are great ocean views from both balconies. Everything worked well including the gas grill on which we prepared some delicious steaks and fajitas. The property is located about 25 minutes from downtown Galveston but we also enjoyed being away from the crowds and this gave us a chance to have some quiet family meals together. The property is about a 3 minute drive from Beach Access 31. We would take our beach stuff in the SUV, unload and spend our time on the beach. The subdivision pool was available (and used by us) for our use as well. Valerie, the owner along with her husband, was very accommodating in making sure everything was ready for our stay. We especially appreciated that no pets and no smoking were allowed. THIS IS OUR SECOND STAY IN THIS BEACH HOUSE and we will plan to come back again.
Our family had a great time and really enjoyed our time at the beach. It is a very nice home and not far from the beach so we could easily walk there. The home is modern and very comfortable. We plan to return and vacation here again in the future. We made a very good choice by staying in this very nice comfortable home.
Our family of 13 ages 7 to 70 had a wonderful time at the beach house. It was much more than we expected and we had plenty of sleeping areas for all (the beds were comfortable and had exceptionally nice linens.) We arrived early but just kicked back downstairs while the cleaning lady finished up. The grandkids had their fun at the beach on the boogie boards while their Nana got to enjoy the breeze and sounds from the waves without ever putting a toe in the water! The decks are awesome and well appointed for relaxation. We spent many hours out on the decks enjoying each other and our surroundings. A plus was the community pool enjoyed by all! The worse thing about staying here was that no one wanted to go home! Although we didn't meet Valerie and her husband they were quick to respond to the minor texts we sent and that was very much appreciated. You guys have a lovely beach home and are very special people to share it with others. Thank you for a great little summer get-away before returning to school and work. We enjoyed ourselves immensely!
I cannot say enough about this house. It was perfect for my family of six. It is close enough to Galveston to enjoy all the hot spots, but far enough away from all the hustle and bustle to sit back, relax, and enjoy the view! The owners, Joe and Valerie, were available whenever we had a question. The beds are very comfortable and the sheets are AMAZING. We found perfection at Terramar Beach and we will be back again!
This was our third time renting this property. We love it. The owner is great! I am sure we will rent again.
