Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 10

Come enjoy the sweet southern sun in your beach-front Galveston vacation rental. Sleeping up to 10 and two canine companions, this sleek and modern rental is perfect for your next getaway.

A short seven-mile drive from the historic Galveston Pleasure Pier, a five-block walk to restaurants, and one block from the Seawall, you'll be in the heart of all the action.

Redesigned in 2014 by an award-winning designer, this chic seaside house has all the luxury you make you feel like a star. Sprawl out on the large, plush couches while you watch your favorite cable show on the flatscreen HDTV. Have a movie night with the DVD player and curl up with a glass of wine and your favorite someone. Connect to the in-unit WiFi and watch something on your portable device as the waves crash in the distance.

When your group gets hungry you'll be able to whip up a culinary creation in the roomy kitchen. If grilling is more your thing, then step out on the deck and enjoy the ocean view while you grill your dish on the stainless steel gas BBQ. There's an additional cabinet top ice maker that can make up to 25 pounds of ice per day.

Your beach-front getaway can accommodate up to 10 guests (a maximum of eight adults) and two dogs under 40 pounds with an additional fee. With four bedrooms and two bathrooms, your guests will have plenty of space to spread out and relax.

The master bedroom boasts a rejuvenating queen-size bed, ample space for storage, and direct access to the lower deck. You'll find two twin-size beds in the second room, and the third room has two sets of twin bunk beds. In the fourth room there is a queen-size bed allowing guests to stay in comfort. There is also a sofabed if more space is needed.

When you're ready to hit the beach you'll be able to rent jet skis, kayaks, or paddle boards at the local shop. For some family fun, take your group over to Schlitterbahn Water Park where you ride the water slides and enjoy the fun activities. If you want to relax and not cook head on over to Woody's Beachside Bar and Grill, four blocks away, where you'll find an expansive menu, fresh fare, and something for everyone's picky palate.

Make priceless memories and enjoy the southern sun when you book your next beach getaway at this Texas coastal retreat.

About Vacasa, TX - Texas Gulf Coast Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.

<br>

<br>

Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.

<br>

<br>

Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Guestbook comments from the manager

The property is very close to Galveston without actually being on the seawall. The place is very well maintained and in awesome condition.



Positives:

Quick access to a beach with no cars

Storage room with beach toys, grill, other convenience items

Huge deck that is in perfect shape with direct path to beach

No cars on the beach in front of the property

Great family room with ocean views and large screen tv+cable

Parking below the house on ground level

Very authentic beach house feel to it

Nice set-up for smaller dogs



Negatives

Probably can only accommodate a couple families with kids as the beds and total square footage is smaller (the pictures are designed to make it look larger)

No canopy on the deck

Our stay there was just as great as it was a month ago. We enjoyed watching our two dogs playing in the surf. The short walk down to the beach was very convenient when carrying chairs and umbrella. Another relaxing and satisfying stay at Happy in Margaritaville.

Loved our stay at Happy in Margaritaville! The location is not only adjacent to the beach, but to all businesses on the Sea Wall. The view of the beach from the deck was awesome and privacy was a bonus. We will definitely rent this property again next vacation.

A Wonderful Long Weekend at Margaritaville!

  • 5 of 5

A perfect weekend at the perfect place was our experience. My family and relatives couldn't get over how private and adjacent this place was to the beach. I hope to stay there again next vacation.

Perfect rental for our annual family trip to Galveston

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here for 1 week each summer for the past 3 years and are very sad that our family has outgrown the maximum capacity.

The home and location are perfect! We particularly like the outdoor shower with hot and cold water. Would highly recommend to anyone.
