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.



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.



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.


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


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

Recommended for: Families with young children, Pet owners, Girls getaway, Age 55+, Romantic getaway

Margaritaville Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week from 3 Apr 18. Fabulous house; exactly as photos suggest. It is luxurious with a homely feel. Excellent kitchen equipment- particularly the blender for fresh fruit smoothies. The raised deck was beautiful when the weather allowed (half of our stay was very cold and windy with rain!). Lots of buckets and spades, beach chairs &amp; inflateables downstairs. A couple of boogie boards - we left an extra one behind as a donation (it wouldn't fit in the suitcase anyway!). We had great fun on the beach, making sandcastles, boogie boarding &amp; swimming. The sea is never clear, due to Mississippi silt and the surrounding land formation, but we knew that before we flew out (from UK). Watching the pelicans dive for fish was fascinating. The huge TV was great for those days when weather wasn't so good. <br />

The Dollar store, to the west, was handy for the odd grocery top up/forgotten essentials and there's a huge Walmart in town for the bulk shop. Jimmy's Pier was a great meal out - fab service with friendly staff. <br />

Our daughter left behind her beloved cuddly crocodile in one of the top bunks; she is heartbroken. We are keeping all fingers crossed (after emailing and phoning) that 'Crocky' will be sent safely back to us, in England ( we only got home yesterday ). <br />

'Happy in Margaritaville' was a wonderful holiday house; we were just a little unlucky with the weather... we hadn't appreciated that you could get British winter weather on the Texas coast in April!! <br />

I will definitely miss waking up to the wonderful view.

House great; Vacasa property management poor

  • 4 of 5

Superb location, House all on one level inside which was great, layout good featuring one big living area with bedrooms off to each side. Nice overall. To the home owners: Vacasa property management timely response to some issues was the worst part of stay. There was obviously a breakdown between their office in Portland and local office as we had no action on several issues for four days. We were given wrong wifi; the lack of boards on the twin beds meant mattresses sagged through bed frames to floor at head and foot; water pipe to outdoor shower leaked like a waterfall when cold turned on; outdoor table and chairs need to be replaced as legs on some chairs rusted through/completely off. The local guy who came to connect WiFi and put some additional boards on one of twin beds day before we left was nice and apologized but it should not take four days to resolve these issues.

Great beach house!

  • 5 of 5

This house is great and has a wonderful location. The only issue we had was that the air conditioner fan was so loud we couldn’t carry on a conversation while it was running. Think it’s about to go out. The kitchen was the best equipped we have ever seen. We would love to rent again, just hope they fix the air conditioner.
