Forget the Hotels. This is a five-star beach house.
This old Galveston home has been restored to a modern look that is a pleasure to see. It is superbly maintained, and has all the amenities you could ask for, including an enclosed outside shower to get the sand/salt off when you return from the beach. A short walk to several fine restaurants and the beach. This was my second stay at this beautiful beach house, and I can assure you, it won't be my last.

Awesome Galveston Beach House! Highly Recommend.
Freshly refurbished beach house just a few easy steps from the coast. Home was warm, inviting, and comfortable with all the amenities you would find at your own home. Spacious bedrooms, full baths, satellite, and plenty of room for a family get-a-way, or a romantic stay.
A short walk to restaurants and other eateries and historic Galveston homes. A short drive to downtown shopping, unique bakeries, and other dining establishments. Well worth the trip!!

Great house just a couple of blocks from the beach!
My husband and I enjoyed staying at this cute house just a couple of blocks from the beach. The large family room is great for entertaining or relaxing after spending time on the beach or exploring the shops of Galveston. The bedrooms are spacious and very comfortable. There are several great restaurants within walking distance or a short drive by car. I would recommend this house for all ages. We will definitely be coming back.

Beautiful Beach House!
Wonderful house, terrific location! Clean, lots of amenities: full kitchen, cable, internet and space. Walking distance to Pleasure Peer, sea wall, lots of beach. Terrific restaurants nearby. Quiet, comfortable, a perfect place to stay to enjoy Galveston, especially for families.

The house we rented was awesome, all the guest really enjoyed it. It was close the Seawall and not far from the Strand. Will definitely go back. Did have a problem with vehicles parking in front that blocked our entrance.

Beautiful beach home - modern but cozy!
This house was wonderful. Close to the seawall, modern, cozy yet spacious, and everything my group of 11 needed to make a weekend filled with memories.

Wonderful updated home near the beach.
We had a fantastic long weekend on the beach. The house is an easy 5 minute walk from the beach, while carrying chairs and stuff. There is an outdoor shower to rinse off all the sand before heading into the house, which is especially welcomed with kids. Pleasure Pier is also a leisurely 20 minute walk away.
Restaurant selection in walking distance is very good (within a 15 walk), and within a 10 minute drive there is anything you could want (Asian, Italian, Mexican, American fusion, ice cream etc.). Shopping is nearby and there is also a nicely equipped kitchen and propane grill.
The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful at night and the mornings, so sleeping in is quite likely.
Overall we loved staying there!

5 stars for house and location!
House was beyond our expectations! Much nicer than photos show. Tastefully decorated and nicely furnished. House is big with large rooms--more than enough space for our party of 10. Kitchen had everything we needed. Enjoyed grilling and hanging out on the decks. We liked the privacy of having the entire house to ourselves. Great location--only about a block and half to the beach and a short walk to restaurants. Would recommend this house as one of the best finds in Galveston. We will definitely be back!

Great house, close to what we wanted to do
House was great! Recently updated and very comfortable for family meals and hanging out for movies or TV after a day in the sun. Outdoor shower was awesome for getting the sand and sunscreen off before coming in the house. Beach is 1-1/2 short blocks and Pleasure Pier less than 15 minute walk where we watched the 4th of July parade and fireworks. Beautiful neighborhood with lots of historic homes to look at. Even jogged the mile down to The Strand to window shop, see museums and galleries and even more restaurants. Everything was in good repair, super nice furnishings and room for the whole family. Modern kitchen made it easy to prep meals and feed everyone -- even had a Keurig. Grill outside with a fenced yard and room for the kids to play. Felt more like a luxury hotel than a beach house. Fair number of stairs so would avoid for people with limited mobility - highly recommended for anyone else!

An awesome experience!
The best part of this rental is definitely the proximity to the beach. Parking can get expensive, so being able to walk was especially wonderful. There was plenty of room for everybody to sleep comfortably, and lots of room downstairs to hang out all together. It was also nice to have a kitchen stocked with pots and pans to help save some money on eating out. Upon arrival the house was clean and put together beautifully. Over all we had a wonderful time, and I would love to come back to this rental for vacations to come!

The beach house was beyond my expectations. It was beautifully decorated and well furnished with many places for people so sleep, eat and just hang out. It has a very "at home" feel. The location is perfect, close enough to the popular beaches, shops and pleasure pier. I greatly enjoyed my stay and will be going back.

Made an awesome family vacation!
As a mother of teenagers it's hard to find enough room for all the kids and their friends but this house had it all! There were plenty of beautifully decorated beds and spaces to entertain. The furniture was very comfortable and the décor was super cute. I could easily send off the kids to the beach with no worries because it was so close. The nearby shops and restaurants made for a ton of fun and entertainment. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a perfect family getaway.

Beautiful house! Super close to beach!
Loved, loved, loved this house! Beautifully decorated with very nice furniture and very clean. Nicer than any other house or hotel we've stayed at in Galveston. Was surprised how close it was to the beach--about a 5 minute walk-- which allowed us to easily go back and forth all day. Also a short walking distance to restaurants, fast food and shopping which made for a great vacation.
Very nice beds with extra pillows and blankets. Felt like we were staying a 5 star hotel, but with enough room to spread out and relax. House has a great kitchen and the bathrooms and were extremely clean. The dining table is huge and everyone could eat together. There were lots of nice extras--beach towels, games, DVDs, etc. Had a fun game night when we got a little too sunburned. The outdoor shower worked great for "de-sanding". The property management staff were super nice and responded immediately to a couple of small questions we had. They seemed genuinely concerned that we were enjoying our stay and had everything we needed. This house is by far the best house and location we.'ve found in Galveston and we have already booked it for another stay. Thanks!!

Family Beach Weekend
This home was even more beautiful than the pictures. Our family absolutely loved our stay and felt right at home here. The location was perfect for a walk to the Seawall, beach, nearby attractions, and an easy drive to the Strand! The local Turnkey staff was also easy to reach and very informative about the property and Galveston events. We look forward to visiting again!!!
