Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

You're not just on the beach, you own the beach.

Enjoy our inviting and spacious 1400 sq. ft. beachfront home on the sandy beach with breathtaking views over the Gulf of Mexico and Christmas Bay. The entire house has just been remodeled: kitchen, bathrooms, paint, decks, fireplace, beds, sofas, ceiling fans, even a new pretty white railing around the two decks.

We think you'll enjoy your time here while your blood pressure drops.

The master bedroom includes a king size bed, double futon that can pull out to be a double bed, reading lamps, an en-suite bathroom with a garden tub and separate shower, large walk-in closet, dresser, private porch, and tranquil views of the sun rising over the Gulf (there is no better way to wake up).

The guest bedroom has a new tall queen bed, reading lamp, lounge chair, and dresser. The bunkroom has a double bed on the bottom with a twin on top, another twin bed and a reading lamp. Feel free to take out our boogie boards in the closet.

The house is literally right on the beach with just a sand dune between the beach and our home. Our neighborhood uses a little wooden crossover bridge for getting to the beach in order to preserve the dunes. The beach itself is beautiful for finding treasures like shells that wash up from the sea. There is mostly fine sand with shells interspersed. In the summertime, the water around Galveston is warm. During certain weeks throughout the year, beachgoers will see a line of seaweed that has washed up on the beach. Seaweed is not always there and is not the norm, but it is natural and just a part of the beach ecosystem. It is partially responsible for building up the beach and dunes that we all enjoy.

About Claire Street

We are a sister and two brothers helping to care for our family's vacation home. The picture is several years old but we look even better now! We've created countless cherished memories at this house and are excited about having you come and experience our treasured spot.

Why Claire Street chose Texas Gulf Coast

We've made this our vacation getaway ever since Dear Old Dad built it on what he called the 'Best Beach Lot Ever' (he talks like that sometimes). But before you assume he is exaggerating (don't feel bad, we sometimes do too) take a look at our pictures. This honestly is a location unlike any other with a view down miles of unspoiled beach.

What makes this house unique

We all agree that sitting out on one of the beach-facing porches of our house is our favorite thing to do - people watching, watching the pelicans fly by, dolphins at play, seeing the colors change in the evening. The house is not overly cavernous, but has plenty of space to find privacy when you want it.

Map

Car: recommended

You're going to be located a few short feet behind the dunes looking down miles of undeveloped Gulf of Mexico beach. Great location if you'd like to be in a small neighborhood but have a secluded feel, you practically own the beach here.

There is a bait and tackle store within walking distance of the home for quick supplies or you will be able to take a short 10 minute drive down Bluewater Highway to get great seafood and shops.

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! This was a perfect location for us with kids, because we were right on the beach and we didn't have a ton of stuff to load up and haul to the beach and then haul it back. The property and accommodations were fabulous!

Don't wait, just book it!!

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect! Steps from the beach. My favorite time was at night. Sitting on the deck outside the master bedroom, seeing the reflection of the moon on the water, while hearing the ocean. So peaceful. The House was clean. The kitchen has everything you need. Plenty of towels for bathing. Beach towels are provided, along with beach chairs, boogie boards and toys. The beach wasn't crowded at all! It was the perfect getaway for me and my family.

Beautiful!

This trip was a vacation gift for a family. They said the property was great and they had a wonderful stay. I'm hoping to stay at the property myself on my next trip to Galveston!

Thank you!

BEST beach house EVER!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about this house. It is clean, well maintained, well stocked, roomy for a small group, RIGHT ON THE BEACH. The owners are very responsive to all questions, both before and during your stay. There are plenty of beach chairs, toys, and boards down in the storage downstairs. The view is the best thing about this house. I can sit on the deck for days watching and listening the waves. It is on a private dead end beach with no vehicle traffic. I decided to rent a golf cart this year, and the company (Ricks) delivered it to the house, and we had a fantastic time exploring the area. The shell collecting here and the quality of the water is fantastic. Not filled with a ton of junk or bacteria like closer into Galveston. At night you can star watch forever on either the master bedroom deck or the porch deck. The bathrooms are clean, roomy, and a TV is in every bedroom. There is satellite TV, a BBQ grill, sink downstairs for cleaning fish, and a great family atmosphere by everyone that is in the neighborhood. I let my daughter play under the house and out in front because it is safe and I can always see her. I can leave a kite flying all day, and our umbrella out on the beach every night and not worry about anyone taking it, or doing anything to it. Honestly, I look forward to coming here every year, and wouldn't dream of going anywhere else. Thank you for the great memories again this year!

We had a lovely time enjoying the beach this week

  • 5 of 5

The property is very nice. Steps from the sand. Our boys enjoyed chasing crabs, playing in the water and sand. The property has everything you may need. Next time, we will stop for groceries on our way to the property as it is pretty far to get to a grocery store once you are at the property.
