Sunny Beach house description

Welcome to 'HAPPY IN MARGARITAVILLE'. Life doesn't get any better than this! The only thing that stands between you and getting wet is a PANORAMIC VIEW of the beach!

Set on four beachfront lots and next to the wetlands to the east, you have an unobstructed view all the way to the seawall.

Located at FM 3005 & 8 Mile Road, SUNNY BEACH is the closest beach community off the Seawall. All the wonderful attractions like Schlitterbahn, Moody Gardens, The Historic Galveston Pleasure Pier, restaurants and shopping that Galveston has to offer are just a stone throw away from the beautiful, rustic West End beaches that are just outside your back door.

Totally redecorated in May 2014 by award winning Interior Designer Mary Beth Binkley-Gill, from Naples Florida, the home offers a light, colorful charm. Two story cathedral ceilings, a wall of windows facing the water, gleaming hardwood floors and 4 comfortable bedrooms - all on one level - make this a great choice for your next beach getaway.

An added bonus is 700+ square feet of deck with lots of furniture to sit out and enjoy your morning coffee or afternoon libation while looking at the wonderful views of the Gulf of Mexico. The view just simply can't be beat!

Parents, rest assured that you can sit on the deck with full view of your children on the beach.

After your fun in the sand and surf, treat yourself to the outdoor's just amazing!

The house is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need to make your Galveston vacation a great experience. The open kitchen is great for entertaining.

Sleeping arrangements include 2 queen sized beds, 2 twins, 2 bunk beds, a queen size sofa sleeper and a full sized raised inflatable bed if needed.

Looking for more than one house for that family reunion or employee retreat? Contact us about 'IKE'S REVENGE' (VRBO #351797). Also located in Sunny Beach, this incredible 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom beach house has a large loft and sleeps 9. It was totally remodeled and professionally decorated in March 2011.

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About: I'm an overworked Realtor from Austin that can only relax at the beach. It's just a shame I have to drive 3 1/2 hours to enjoy my little paradise on the beach.

                  Why Sunny Beach:
                  I have been vacationing on Galveston's West End for 30 years. Same old 12 friends telling the same old stories over and over. I wouldn't have it any other way. It's our twice a year 'Big Chill' weekend. Other than those two big weekends, I totally love my other times to the beach either just by myself or with a few friends. Galveston is truly a gem. There is so much history and fun things to do here. That's why I bought my house. It's the best of both worlds.....rustic beaches close to fun.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Galveston has become such a great culinary town. The restaurants are amazing. Get to know the local places. You will never get bored. Schlitterbahn, Moody Gardens, The Flight Museum, The Historic Galveston Pleasure Pier, Historical homes, The Strand for great shopping, Golf & Spas are just some of the other things to do when not enjoying the beach. Also, it seems like Galveston has one event after another such as Mardi Gras, Dickens on the Strand, The Festival of Lights, Biker Weekend and more parades than any single town should have. Get out and enjoy everything she has to offer!
