Overview

Texas House Rental Photos and Description

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

WE ARE NOT POSTED ON CRAIGSLIST.

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 David 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 David Street chose Texas

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.

Christmas Vacation On The Beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 8 day stay. The accommodations were great. We enjoyed being able to cook meals in the well stocked kitchen. The gate at the bottom of the stairs was great for our dog. Our kids enjoyed shell hunting on the beach. We had a very relaxing time. The beach was very secluded during the Holiday week. We would recommend it to anyone.

Majestic Peace and Quiet! What a location!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful beach house with us! We were hoping for some peace and quiet and away from all the hurriedness of the holidays and that is just what we got! We love that the beach is directly on the water and never really left those comfy porch chairs! The sunsets and sunrises were absolutely to die for! Even though it was freezing the first couple of nights, the fireplace warmed was right up and was made us feel even more cozy. Thank you for making us feel right at home! It was a joy working with you and we will definitely be staying here again!

Best House on the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just celebrated my birthday with a long weekend stay at this house. The house is even more beautiful than the pictures and description. Everything was perfect. The beds were very comfortable, all linens for the bath and kitchen were great. The kitchen is very well stocked with the usual things, like coffee pot, but also lots of cookware. We ate lunches out (recommend Waterman's and Pirate's Alley Cafe) and then cooked dinners so we could enjoy the deck and beach! The Internet is super fast, TVs were great, all with Dish Satellite, but we didn't spend a lot of time inside. We are already planning on coming back next year and bringing our 2 grandkids. They would enjoy it, we are certain!

We felt like we had the whole beach to ourselves. It is truly the BEST beach house! We will return, for sure. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us! We didn't want to leave!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

This home is gorgeous ! We had no issues with the house, I wouldn't change a thing, other than to stay longer next time. Very convenient location, quiet and on the water, yet an easy drive to Kemah and Galveston, we would definitely stay here again.

Excellent Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed all aspects of our stay. Location, view, neighborhood and house itself. They were all excellent. Couldn't have chosen a better place for our family to enjoy the Holiday Weekend.

A great place, and great people

  • 5 of 5

We did not know quite what to expect from the Gulf coast of Texas - this was our first visit. But the beach was fantastic - just a great place to chill out and relax. We spent two weeks doing very little beyond watching the pelicans fish in the surf, and the fishermen compete with them. Tina and David sorted out any small problems very quickly, and were a pleasure to work with. If anything, the house and location is more beautiful than the pictures allow.

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.
