Tiki Island Retreat is a great place to come for a weekend getaway, or a week-long vacation. This wonderful Retreat is definitely a cut above your typical beach house rental.

You can walk downstairs and go fishing or crabbing right off the pier. We have a great view on our upstairs deck. This is perfect for dining outside, and great for relaxing and unwinding.

About Valerie

This was our parent's residence for many years; there have been many wonderful memories. Inside, we have all new furnishings with a seaside flair, with a feel of being on vacation in your own home. Lots of fishing, swimming,and great family fun!!! We hope you enjoy it too.

Valerie purchased this house in 1980

Why Valerie chose Texas Gulf Coast

This is an ideal weekend getaway or for a wonderful week-long vacation. Tiki Island is 17 minutes away from the beaches in Galveston and centrally located to the Strand for shopping and great restaurants, Schlitterbaun, Moody Gardens, The new Pleasure Pier, and much more.

What makes this house unique

Our house is right on Jones Bay. There's lots!! of fishing and crabbing downstairs. Swimming off the pier is great fun, and of course, accommodations for a boat or jet skis. We have a wonderful deck to view the water on Jones Bay, watching all the boating activities, and in the evening, watching the most breath taking sunsets.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Ok that is great. We had an awesome time at your place. The grandkids loved going out on the dock and fishing whenever they wanted. They caught several spotted trout. They also loved feeding the sea gulls. We took several trips to the beach and we had my daughters future in-laws over Friday for a Thanksgiving meal. They also enjoyed the dock and the place was big enough that we could all enjoy being together. Hope we didn't get to rowdy for the neighbors. They left by 10:00. Once again we couldn't have asked for a better place.

Bike Rally stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a really relaxing stay, we stayed for the Lone Star Bike Rally in November. I enjoyed the home more than I did the Rally b/c I caught plenty of fish every day, that was awesome!!! I caught Red fish, Whitting, Croaker, Sting Rays, & Crabs. Under water lighting was awesome, home was very clean, & the owner was excellent. I would recommend this home to anyone. Thanks Val!!!

Our Tiki Island Wedding

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I decided to get married at Tiki Island Chapel and we needed a place to stay for the weekend. We looked on VRBO and found the "Best Fall Vacation Getaway in Galveston." The house and accommodations were wonderful and Valerie was the perfect host!! The sunset views were beautiful from the living area and balcony. We were able to have our rehearsal dinner at the house and all commented on how wonderful the location, the house and views were. There was an abundance of indoor and outdoor space for relaxing and the house is perfect for any family gathering. Valerie made sure that we had everything we needed to make our wedding day special. We will definitely be renting Valerie's house again in the future. Best regards, Haydee and Gary

Great Location, Very Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The house is located right on the Bay with a great view and easy access to the boat ramp. The property is well-maintained, both inside and out. There was plenty of deck space to BBQ and fish, as well as sunbathe and relax. Valerie made sure we had all of the information necessary for check-in well in advance and made sure our experience exceeded expectations. We will definitely be back!
