How to pick the perfect vacation rental in Galveston

Galveston is one of the most popular beach destinations in Texas. Located on Galveston Island in the Gulf of Mexico, the city is perfect for any kind of traveler. Fill your days with theme parks like Pleasure Pier, beaches, outdoor activities, and culture without ever leaving the island.

Follow these tips to make sure you pick the perfect Galveston vacation rental for your travel plans.

  1. Where to stay if you’re going to Stewart or East Beach. Looking to spend your entire trip on the sandy beaches of Galveston? Find a vacation rental on Seawall Boulevard to get access to Stewart Beach (a family friendly spot) or East Beach (the party beach). You’ll also have access to great restaurants, like BLVD Seafood, The Spot, and Gaidos Seafood Restaurant. Plus, you’ll be right by Seawall Urban Park, which has the longest continuous sidewalk in the country. At 10.5 miles, it’s perfect for those looking for a place to run or bike.
  2. Where to stay for shopping in the Historic District. The Strand Historic District in downtown Galveston is the place to shop on Galveston Island. Look for a vacation rental on or near Avenue B, which is the actual “Strand.” You’ll be right in the middle of boutiques, galleries, and museums, like the Galveston Railroad Museum. This also a great area to stay in if you’re headed to Galveston for their annual Mardi Gras celebration.
  3. Where to stay to get your adrenaline pumping at Pleasure Pier. Right along Seawall Boulevard is Pleasure Pier, the 1,130-foot pier that’s an amusement park. There are rides for all ages, but for the adult thrill seekers, we recommend the Cyclone or the Iron Shark. To stay close to the pier, look for a rental near 25th St. and Seawall Blvd. Want more thrills? It’s only a 15-minute ride to Schlitterbahn, a huge water park that has indoor and outdoor rides for year-round visitors.
  4. Where to stay on the West End to get away from it all. For a little more privacy and relaxation, head to the West End of the island to get away from the hustle and bustle. Search for a vacation rental close to Galveston Island State Park. It’s a more secluded, quiet beach where you can fish, hike, mountain bike, or just lay on the sand. This area is also home to great restaurants, like Mario’s Pizza and the West End Marina that has casual and upscale dining options.
  5. How to choose your own Galveston vacation rental experience. You have so many choices when booking your trip to Galveston. There are beachfront bungalows for travelers who want to spend time in the sun, cottages by the pier for roller coaster fanatics, and secluded West End condos right on the water. No matter what you choose for your home base in Galveston, you’ll be close to beaches, food, and fun attractions for all ages.

Galveston Vacation Rentals Frequently Asked Questions

Companies like Airbnb and Vrbo operate listing websites that enable guests to research and book a vacation rental anywhere in the world. However, once a guest books the property, they need to work directly with either the homeowner, host or property manager any time they have questions or need assistance with booking or during their stay. This can be a challenge for some homeowners, particularly those who live far away from their vacation rental. TurnKey offers a consistent and reliable high-end experience, resulting in strong reviews, repeat bookings and more. TurnKey also has a local Galveston team, 24/7 support and in-home technology to ensure an amazing vacation experience in every home, every stay, every time.

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, TurnKey has enhanced its already extensive home cleaning standards and processes to further sanitize homes between each stay for our guests and owners. All TurnKey properties are equipped with our patented GuestWorks® cleaning system and verification technology, requiring professional housekeepers to follow a stringent set of cleaning standards, customized for each home, and confirm their use of COVID-19 fighting products, as identified by the Center for Biocide Chemistries. We have also emphasized effective hygiene practices and safety recommendations for our employees and housekeeping network in line with CDC guidelines. In addition, we have initiated the TurnKey Cares Relief Housing Program, offering thousands of homes for medical personnel and first-responders at complimentary or significantly discounted rates while they perform critical services to fight COVID-19.

Yes. Many TurnKey homes allow for special rates for extended stays, monthly stays or long-term stays. All our booking calendars are accurate and up-to-date, and will automatically reflect these discounted rates when you enter your desired check-in and checkout dates.

Yes! TurnKey has established the best network of professional house cleaners in Galveston to ensure that our guests always arrive at an exceptionally clean home. Expect to find beds made with hotel-grade linens and bathrooms stocked with fresh towels and a complimentary starter set of toiletries.

Unlike many vacation rentals in the area, our local team and network of Galveston house cleaners guarantee that you’ll never need to clean up at the end of your stay. Sometimes, especially during busy seasons, starting a load of towels or linens can help our house cleaners finish their clean more quickly. We certainly appreciate it when guests do this, but we do not require it.

TurnKey offers 24/7 guest support that you can contact at any time to make your stay more enjoyable. Paired with our local Galveston team, we can respond quickly to any in-home help you might need.

All of TurnKey’s Galveston vacation rentals are equipped with complimentary, reliable, high-speed WiFi so you can always stay connected.

Every TurnKey Galveston vacation rental includes a fully-equipped kitchen where you can cook and prepare meals with your friends and family.

We’ve installed our proprietary digital locks on all Galveston vacation rentals to offer our guests secure, keyless entry. Each code is time-sensitive, so you don’t have to worry about anyone else having access to the home while you’re there. Prior to check-in, you’ll receive arrival instructions with your custom code for easy, seamless access.

TurnKey carefully vets all of our homes, so you can be sure you’ll always stay in a premium vacation rental. We offer some of the most distinctive, unique vacation homes in all of Galveston, backed by our exceptional home care and 24/7 guest service.
