About Rose Rhodes

Rick and Tina met back in the 1970s while attending the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. We have spent our working lives serving rural communities with limited access to health care. Dr. Rick is a small town doctor who specializes in making house calls to elders, and Dr. Tina is an occupational therapist who works with special needs children in country schools and is a university professor. Paul and Rose work in engineering and human resource management in the Houston oil industry. Lily is in middle school and is becoming a skilled photographer. After being away for so many years, the whole family is enjoying being back in Galveston.

Rose Rhodes purchased this house in 2012

Why Rose Rhodes chose Texas Gulf Coast

We chose this property because it is located on a beautiful wide swath of beach, has plenty of open space on all sides, and it is within an easy walk of the local convenience store. Because it is a part of a homeowners association, we also have access to a swimming pool and private fishing pier.

What makes this house unique

In addition to being perfectly situated on a car-free beach, this house has a large, secure storage area containing bicycles, beach and barbeque tools, and a variety of useful supplies. The house is in pristine condition and has two twin bunk beds, one queen bed, one king bed, and a comfortable new full-sized Murphy bed. The kitchen is well appointed, and the living area and bunk bed room have new flat screen TVs. Internet service and a home security system are provided.

Awesome Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This beach house is fantastic. It feels more like you got to stay at your friends beach house rather than a rental. It is well maintained and nicely furnished. Instructions are very clear and beach access is great. Overall, this is a great place to stay and it will be top on our list for next time. Thank you for the gift bag too!

Wonderful week

This house was well supplied and maintained to provide an enjoyable week for nine family members, ages 79 to 6. It was just as pictured and described.

Our Favorite Galveston House...2nd Visit

  • 5 of 5

We love this house! This is our 2nd year to stay at the Galveston Sea Star and we now feel like it is our home away from home. We don't have to bring many staples and basics because everything is provided by our wonderful hosts....including a welcome bag with lots of helpful goodies. We loved the Blanc Pescador wine in our welcome bag! Thank you! The house has a beautiful view of the beach and also easy direct access which a lot of beachfront homes do not have. This year we noticed there are new Smart TV's which is a very nice addition even though we spent most of our evenings on the deck sipping wine and enjoying the stars and sound of the waves. A beautiful setting, a clean, comfortable, modern and well appointed home, very thoughtful hosts.....who could ask for more? We and our dogs are looking forward to our next visit already! Oh...and the weather was perfect too.

Anne and Jim

Great Stay... Again!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year staying at this property! Very well kept and comfortable. The owners are super nice and great to work with. You can tell they take pride in their home. There have been changes since the last time we stayed that made things even nicer. The property description is spot on. Great location! Would HIGHLY recommend this property.
