The retreat is a short 35 mile drive from Houston and is positioned 'half way' (about 15 to 20 minutes) between Freeport & Galveston (city) - the location is the best the island has to offer - sport/wade fishing (2 minutes from San Luis Pass - walkable!), just moments from Shlitterbaun Water Park, Moody Gardens and Island night life. Dolphin Daze Galveston is priced to rent! No hotel can accommodate your group like Dolphin Daze and no price can compare!

Car: Recommended

Guests may make full use of the sub-division pool, showers & other ammenities; pool is short walk/bike ride (under tunnel) of Hwy 3005 (aka, Blue Water Highway) w/in the sub-division. Contact owner for gate code. Excellent dining nearby (try the Harbor Restaurant). Nick is the chef - excellent food. Also, near the famous Galveston Strand with its seasonal Mardi Gras & 'Dickens on the Strand'. Excellent shopping, unique art, antiques! Sport fishing at its best; less than 2 miles from San Luis Pass, some of the best wade fishing in the U.S. - & 15 minutes from Freeport's sport fishing paradise!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: Our property is personally owned & gently used by family from Houston, Tx. I'm in the environmental consulting business, enjoy art, decorating & our get-aways to the west end of Galveston. Happy to share our paradise with you - the best the island has to offer!

Why the Owner Chose San Luis:
Our family is from Houston & we enjoy the short trip to the island for peacful get-aways! With air travel aggrivations & hotel stays not attractive to us, we enjoy the West End of Galveston island with its proximity to attractive nightlife, sport & wade fishing & gourmet dining. The west end offers safe, pretty & family oriented, relaxation time!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Dolphin Daze Galveston is a very unique construction that offers 4 stories & unobstructed views - the best on the island. Very peacful, quiet and romantic! Compare a hotel to our house for a family of 5 and you will find our pricing very agreeable & the resort experience much more enjoyable than a stuffy, overpriced hotel!
