Sunny Beach house description

Welcome to 'Ike's Revenge'. As you might have guessed, besides having a colorful exterior, this home has a colorful history. Damaged by Hurricane Ike in 2008, this impressive Sunny Beach home has been totally remodeled and professionally decorated (March 2011). It's a perfect retreat, totally equipped with almost everything imaginable to make your Galveston vacation a pleasant, memorable experience.

The home features 2 bedrooms, 2 baths and a loft. 2 story vaulted ceilings and an abundance of windows will make your beach experience all that much more enjoyable. Kick back in an Adirondack chair and enjoy your morning coffee or afternoon libation on the oversized deck with views of the Gulf of Mexico which is a short 2 blocks away.

Sleeping arrangements: Master with king sized bed, second bedroom with a queen sized bed, loft with 3 twin beds and there is also a raised inflatable Air Bed available.

Features include a 47' flat screen Internet TV in the living room and a 32' Internet TV in the master bedroom, FREE wireless Internet, CD/ipod player, stainless appliances including microwave, pots/pans, dishes, glassware and almost every small appliance you will need. For your convenience, there is a large enclosed storage room downstairs to store all your beach toys. A charcoal grill is also provided. Don't forget to check out the outdoor shower.......it's amazing!

Sunny Beach is the perfect location on the West End. Located at FM 3005 and 8 Mile Road, it's the first beach community west of the Seawall which makes it the most convenient beach community to Galveston attractions, restaurants and shopping. You really can't beat the location.

Looking for more than one house for that family reunion or employee getaway? Check out 'HAPPY IN MARGARITAVILLE' (VRBO #351796). It's a 4 bedroom, 2 bath BEACHFRONT home just 2 blocks away. How convenient is that?

              Manager info

              Year Purchased: 2009

              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. Sunny Beach was my first choice because it's so easy to get anywhere......attractions, restaurants, grocery stores.

              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, 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!
