Overview

About the property

5 BR/3 Bath, Beach And Bay Accessible, Great Outdoor Space, Fenced In!

This 2 story home has 5 bedrooms and 3 baths to accommodate 12 people with each person having a spot in an actual bed. There is a queen and twin blow up mattress in the home as well.

Two of the bedrooms and one bathroom are fully detached from the home on the ground floor. Three bedrooms and two baths are on the main (upper) floor of the house.

The yard is fully fenced in just in case you need to corral kiddos or have a couple furry friends tagging along.

Among the beautiful landscaping is a relaxing hot tub under a tropical thatched roof. It even has an adjacent shower to take a cool rinse under.

Finally, the favorite feature of this vacation spot is the Tiki Bar! It is underneath the home so it is covered, but it is still open to calming sea breeze! Adorned with a lovely little tiki bar for guests to practice their bartending skills, several cocktail tables and stools for taking a load off, and a large screen television to watch your favorite games or shows, this outdoor bar is just waiting for you and your travel companions to share in a cheerful toast to a good life and making memories!

While it is unlikely you would want to leave this magnificent oasis of a beach house, there are plenty of other places to get out and enjoy!

If staying local is for you, kick back on the beach just a few minutes’ walk away, take the kids to the playground, or dive into the neighborhood pool during the summer months.

The nearby marina offers a public boat ramp if you need access to spend your day on the water. When you’ve had your fill of the sun drenched outdoors, grab some food and drinks at the West End Restaurant and Sand Bar. They even have karaoke and live music on the weekends!

If want to mix in some major city attractions, take a short scenic drive to Moody Gardens to take in the beauty of their glass pyramids, hit up Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier for amusement rides over the water, or meander the Strand Historic District for entertainment and shopping.

About Vicky Farr

I recently graduated from University of Houston Bauer School of Business with a major in marketing and a minor in management. I was born and raised in Houston, Texas. I have always had fond memories of going to the beach my whole life. My husband and I recently decided that purchasing a beach house for us and our friends and family to use was a smart decision. Just looking to share the happiness and experience with everyone!

Vicky Farr purchased this house in 2016

Why Vicky Farr chose Galveston Island

This property just felt right from day one of looking. I wanted a place that we could have our friends and family over and not feel as though we were cramped into a tiny home with everyone sleeping on air mattresses everywhere. The tiki bar is a great place to hang out at even on the hottest days because of the wind coming off of the gulf. Having a fenced in yard was also a must for me because we have a dog that is very much a part of our family that I would hate to leave at home when we took the drive down to the coast!

Exceeded my expectations

  • 5 of 5

The beach house was very clean and the kitchen was so stocked with everything I needed to cook with. It even had plastic plates and silverware and spices which I always bring. The beds were comfortable and the tiki bar area was nice to visit with everyone. We could sit comfortably and watch the kids play games. The only downside is that it is on the main road so you have to be careful crossing the street to walk to the beach. I do highly recommend this place. Thank you.

Place for entertaining

  • 4 of 5

Loved our stay, but there was only three tv's that were really working. Upstairs it was livingroom and bunk room were fully operational. Downstairs the bedroom straight way from entry was fully operational. Also I would consider getting a new grill for downstairs. There was comments about the dirt on base boards but just be aware. For your awareness. Would love to visit again. It was stock with just about everything. Great place and attentive hostess.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry about the televisions. I will make sure that they are fully operational before my next renters. The home will be getting a deep clean before I have renters in again as well. Sorry for the hiccups! Thank you for your kind words about the house, and I hope y'all had a wonderful time!

Really great place! Loved our stay.

  • 5 of 5

What a great house! We traveled with three families - six adults, eight kids, and one dog. There was plenty of room for all of us. The kids could all go upstairs in the evening while the adults had fun down in the tiki bar - peace and quiet for the kids to sleep and tons of fun for the adults! Loved the fenced in yard; really wonderful for our dog to be able to roam and have fun too. It’s just across the street from the beach, super great location. Loved our stay, loved the house, and the owner Vicky was incredible to work with. She was very accommodating and very responsive whenever I had a question. She was even happy to mail back something we left! Vicky was great; can’t recommend this place enough. Thanks Vicky for a fantastic house for our family vacation!!
