This is our oceanfront getaway on a semi-private beach!
Why Tammy Leyva chose Galveston
We had been renting homes for years in the Galveston area, and always wanted one of our own! The minute I saw this home I fell in love with it! This place was old and dilapidated, but sat on the most beautiful piece of land with a deep lot and it's own private beach… This was my dream home that could be torn apart and renovated to be exactly the way we wanted it! Our ideas and creativity could come alive through the art of renovation in this home - not only for our enjoyment and entertainment, but for yours as well!
What makes this House unique
Poppy's Place has a beautiful, front facing ocean view from almost every room in the entire house. In 2 of the 3 bedrooms, you literally see the ocean as soon as you open your eyes in the morning! And there is a full view of the ocean from the living room and kitchen as well. Our huge, custom made deck is half shaded and half open to the sun, which allows those who want to relax in the shade and those who want to bask in the sun to still be at the same place at the same time, enjoying each other's company! This deck has plenty of room for every guest AND for the hot tub! The view from the deck is the best you could ever get! During stage 2 of our renovation of this home, we removed the wooden pickets and lattice siding and replaced those with wire siding that still keeps you and the children safe, yet allows you to have a virtually uninterrupted view of the dunes, beach, and ocean - regardless of how tall you are! We also added TALL deck chairs! Now, you don't need to be able to see over the railing to bask in the beauty of the beach AND when you are looking out from the living room, kitchen, or the 2 ocean view bedrooms, you will actually see the ocean rather than wooden boards and lattice! I promise you that the view is amazing!! We have the new hot tub set on the sunny side of the deck, so you can enjoy peering at the moon and stars at night or enjoy the sun during the off seasons when it is a little bit cooler outside. The master bathroom has an oversized shower for those who like to have the extra space. It also has a beautiful, extra long, freshly refinished claw foot bathtub that adds to the beauty and uniqueness of this home. And during those chilly days, it is fun to feel the warmth of the electric fireplace and watch it's glow. When is the last time that you rented a home directly on the beach with granite counter tops, wooden floors, hot tub on the deck, electric fire place, oversized shower in the master suite, and a claw foot tub?

Very nice location !
A great location & setup to enjoy the beach.
I can only think of one improvement: add a couple of adult chairs on the deck. We liked the wood chairs!
Wonderful Beach House!
My family and I had a lovely time in this wonderful beach house getaway! It's the perfect location with an almost private beach just steps away! Will definitely be back!
great stay at poppy's place. host was the best vrbo host i've ever rented from.
great location close to the beach and away from the crowds. i would most certainly stay here again.
Quaint little house that fit all of us with only a short walk to the beach! Would stay again. The bottom bunk is a little small for 2 people though.
My Review on Our Stay
Well, let's see, I cannot find one thing negative to say. This house is decorated so cute and it's well maintained. There wasn't anything I needed in the kitchen that I couldn't find. We brought a two-year old and there is protection around the deck to prevent falls for the little ones. The hot tub is well-maintained and quite enjoyable. The location is great, right on the beach. Also, there were plenty of beach toys for the baby provided. I would recommend this beach house and I would stay there again.
Great house on the beach!
Wonderful location right on the beach. We stayed and enjoyed sitting on the deck to watch lightning bugs as the sun went down, and walking on the short trail to enjoy the beach during the days. Great place to stay.
Poppy's Place is located on the west end of Galveston where there are less people and more private beaches.
