Karankawa townhome description

The Galveston beach home rental is a 2 minute walk to one of the best kept beaches on Galveston Island!

You are a 2 minute walk to Nate's West End Restaurant for a great burger and a fully stocked grocery store! Pick up some steak or seafood for a fabulous grill.

You can walk from the beach to the grocery store for a cold scoop of ice cream!

Sun bathe at the beach and walk back for a cold beer or ice tea, and easily return to your sunbathing or you can surf the waves, build sand castles and come back and grill (or have someone else grill) some steaks or seafood!

Many options are available for a grand vacation stay!

You will not be disappointed! Your children will love spending hours playing on the beach with the beach toys provided and you will enjoy the proximity of the beach to all conveniences offered at the home!

We try and keep 4 beach chairs and a beach umbrella for your use in a locked storage unit for securing your fishing poles or bicycles. An outside shower with hot/cold water is also available for washing away the sand!

Still not convinced! . . . . .

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: My husband and I have enjoyed sharing our other beach home and condos (Docs Quarters at the Beach, Docs Quarters at the Seawall and Docs Quarters at the Dawn). We decided to purchase this beach home which is next door to Docs Quarters at the Beach. We found many families with a desire to stay close to the beach and enjoy the relaxation that only a beach can offer! We also wanted to provide vacationers, with multiple family members, the option of sharing the same beach but still having the privacy of being in separate quarters.

                  Why the Owner Chose Karankawa:
                  Our beach is close to Jamaica beach is not crowded and is a location liked and well known by frequent island guest renters. We also enjoy this location, it is secluded but close enough (10 miles to the seawall) to all of the island happenings!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                  Great location, far enough from town (approximately 15 miles) to have the small town feeling but close enough to enjoy Galveston and all its attractions!
