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.

Beauty and the Beach

  • 5 of 5

What a stunning location. The views were phenomenal. This home was fully stocked in all areas. The listing and amenities were accurate. Very clean. Friendly neighborhood. The beach water is fantastic. In the house a highlight was the use of the books, what a eclectic collection. Many puzzles and games. TV in every room. After a long day on the beach relaxed in the extra large tub, which had a great view of the water. Quick response from owner on various questions me had. With a baby we enjoyed the cozy rocking chair. With the location steps to the beach good with having a baby and another young child. A excellent location to relax and savor our vacation time in grand comfort.

BEST house on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

WOWZA! We had high expectations and this place fulfilled them all and more! This really is the BEST house on the beach: LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION as they say in real estate.......and because this is the "last house on the beach", it is situated on an almost private beach with a panoramic view, lots of windows, and a fabulous deck that overlooks the ocean. Every night and nap we had a lullaby of ocean sounds to lull us to sleep. The house was very well maintained and sparkling clean. It is beautifully furnished in a beach motif, has a totally stocked kitchen (high end stainless steel appliances, including a dish washer, standard coffee maker, blender, toaster, etc), a TV in every bedroom and the living area (not that I watched.....I was all into the view but my guys were into all the football games since we were there for Thanksgiving), and with high speed internet there is nothing you lack in the way of modern conveniences. There were plenty of linens, including an abundance of colorful beach towels and a washer and dryer in case you need to recycle clothing. The main deck has plenty of comfortable furniture and the private deck off the master bedroom has chaise lounges for totally relaxation. Rope lighting on the deck gives the entire house a magical ambience at night. There are beach toys and beach chairs for playing and relaxing after strolling down the beach collecting shells or trying out boogie boards while riding the waves. The Street family was so easy to deal with and provided personalized customer service to make sure everything was just as expected. We are still pinching ourselves to make sure this trip was real. Worth every penny, this house provides a dream come true vacation. We will definitely be recommending this house to friends and family. In fact, after posting pictures on Facebook, people were asking where we were and if they could crash our party! Thank you Street family for the memories!

PS: We were approached by neighbor renters who wanted to tour our house because of the view and location.....they were green with envy and we felt especially blessed with our choice!

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.
