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

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.

Great home and even greater location!

  • 5 of 5

Having the beach so close made the stay 10x more enjoyable. Our family could easily run back and forth between the house and the ocean, which made the overall vacation much more pleasant. I would recommend this house even though it is a bit pricier. It's worth it!

Great Vacation Home Right on the Water

  • 4 of 5

After owning a home in Pirates Beach for more than a decade, I was skeptical about renting a house in Galveston, but this place was great. The location is close to the Seawall but still feels removed. The neighborhood is small so the beach was never crowded--even with Sunny Beach right between two pocket parks where cars can park directly on the beach. The best thing I can tell you about this house is that we are already planning our return trip!

Here are things I wish I had known:

--The house is at the end of the block so there is no house on the left, which made for a quiet weekend.

--The rooms are smaller than they appear in the photos. Still comfortable except for bunk room which is quite crowded, especially when 4 people had all their belongings in there. It also has no dresser or closet.

--House set up is very conducive for groups--large living area in the middle lined with windows facing the Gulf and a deck across the back; two bedrooms on each side and both bathrooms accessible from the hallway.

--There is a large storage closet on the ground floor with lots of toys, lawn chairs (but no beach chairs), grill etc.

--The outdoor shower is fantastic! Very private and lots of shelves.

--The listing indicates that house includes starter amounts of toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags, toiletries and laundry soap but plan on bringing your own. With 10 ladies, we went through all and even bought more. We also had to purchase dish soap, a sponge, hand soap and shower gel. (None provided) Only enough detergent for two loads of laundry.

--The kitchen is well stocked with equipment and serving pieces, but did not have a cookie sheet or enough utensils. We had only 9 forks for 10 people. We purchased plastic forks while there.

--There is an ice maker in the freezer but it is slow to fill. We bought bags of ice every day for our beverages and coolers.

Girls' Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was a great spot for our girls' weekend! The home itself was even better than the pictures and even closer to the beach than it seemed in the pictures!
