3 Bed 2 Full Bath Updated Single Family 1 Block 2 Beach W/ Large Fenced Backyard
About John Townsend
I am originally from the barrier island resort town of Ocean City, Maryland, and my wife spent most of her adult life in the Sarasota/Naples Florida area. We are beach babies at heart; now Texans and love making our way to Galveston as much as time permits.
John Townsend purchased this House in 2015
Why John Townsend chose Galveston
We made every effort to create a cozy quite place to accommodate our guests. We love this property because of its large backyard, ample parking, large closets, 2 FULL baths, and quiet neighborhood. It has everything you need. This home is literally steps away from the beach, grocery store and restaurants. If you bring a bike...all the better (you can rent them close to the house as well!). You can get anywhere quickly being so close to the Seawall. Our neighbors are great and the backyard affords great privacy while being pet friendly. Use of the garage is encouraged to store bikes, and luggage safely. Our guests have full use of the washer and dryer.
What makes this House unique
So close to the beach and seawall but tucked away. Quiet and relaxing. Awesome central island location. Why drive all the way down to the West End for peace and quiet?...it's just too far to drive when you want to enjoy Galveston!. Stay at Hawks Nest instead!

Extended Family Vacation
This house was perfect for my husband, myself, two kids and in laws! We thought the location to EVERYTHING was perfect; we were 10 minutes from everywhere we wanted to go. Could have walked to the beach if we wanted to and saved that parking fee. We liked the full kitchen to cook breakfast in and having a washer and dryer so we didn't have dirty, wet stinky clothes laying around! Mr. Townsend was prompt to respond to texts when we didn't know how to work the keypad lock. This was our first time to use a site such as VRBO or to rent a vacation house and we would definately do it again. There were some minor imperfections with the house, but other than that, everything was clean and comfortable and plenty of room for everyone. Did not have cable TV, but the Netflix account worked and the internet was fast enough for everyone to use Netflix and play on their electronics. Overall, everyone was pleased with our stay and our vacation was great!
Galveston Summer 2019
We enjoyed our stay at this house. It was very convenient to the convention center where we were going daily for a dance convention.
The mattresses on the bunkbeds were a little thin - which was a bit of an adjustment from sleeping on a proper mattress. But this did not deterred our overall experience with the house.
Perfect space for our family of 6.
Great location, short walk to the beach and the local grocery store. Easy access to fast food chains and local shops. Enjoyed the trolley loop and the downtown trolley for easy transportation.
Great location and clean.
Nice house, minor maintenance issues.
The house was very nice and walking distance to the beach. There were a few routine maintenance things such as the a/c wasn't keeping the house as cool as it should have because of a plugged filter, some burnt out light bulbs, a bad bed sheet in the master, a few DVD's missing from cases, the girls bike needed new brakes, and the yard needed mowed. Other than that, the house was very clean and perfect for our family. The owner responded back very quickly when I told him about the issues. Hopefully they were taken care of for the next guests.
Great house, great location
The house is in a great location close to the beach and groceries. Everything is clean and comfortable. Would definitely recommend.
Just one block off the beach on a dead end street in a quiet family neighborhood. Very short walk to Kroger Signature Grocery, restaurants, Rain Forest Cafe, Convention Center and shopping. Bike rental one block away. 61st Street Pier two blocks away. Park the car and you're done.
