Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 6 (4 adults)

Bring along the whole family - including the dogs! - on your next visit to Galveston Island, and stay in this cozy home right on the warm waters of West Bay! Boasting a huge deck with views of the water, family-friendly amenities, and enough space for up to 10 guests (eight adults), this delightful home is perfect for kids, adults, and everyone in between.

This two-story rental is located about 20 miles southwest of downtown Galveston, combining proximity to one of Texas's most popular cities with the tranquility of a secluded beach getaway. Perched right on a quiet canal, you'll have access to a neighborhood boat dock, making it easy to launch a kayak or jet boat and explore the glistening waters of the bay. A sandy and relatively uncrowded beach is only a half a mile away, and Galveston's world-famous boardwalk is just a short drive to the north.

This Galveston property comprises a main house with two bedrooms, as well as a private apartment with a king bed and full futon. When you're not out playing in the sun, you'll have plenty to keep you entertained! Challenge your family to a Guitar Hero or Dance Dance Revolution competition on the Wii or Xbox, catch some rays out on the porch, or use the free WiFi to update your social media. There's even an enclosed yard where you can play with your dogs or let them run free when you're out on the town. (Please note a small nightly pet fee applies.)

With incredible amenities, a great location, and plenty of space for the whole family, this charming home is the perfect destination for your next Galveston vacation. Book your stay today!

Needs maintenance. Overall looks tired and worn.

  • 2 of 5

Many problems: a plant blocks the sidewalk; branch from a tree blocks the entry stairs, the deck and stairs need staining; the gates need adjusting; bulbs in the downstairs living room ceiling were so dim it was hard to read a book; two light bulbs (out of 4) above the downstairs kitchen area were dead; the downstairs tub backs up and drains very slowly; the fan in the downstairs bedroom was noisy; the downstairs bath had 1/4 roll of toilet paper and no spares upstairs or down; nearly out of tissue downstairs and no spares up or down; some of the grill accessories were not clean; description did not note a Keuric coffee maker (could have brought our own k-cups); size of the deck was nice; parking was fine.
