Spanish Grant house description

I do not make any exceptions...please read the entire profile. My calendar is up to date and my rates are listed below. Thanks for looking...we hope to hear from you!

Love long walks on the beach?....Well then you will not have far to go ...Aceituna's House (aka Olive's House) is only 10 steps to the sand.

The views from every area are breathtaking...tired of renting houses that say 'Beachfront' only to get there and find you are actually 2nd row with somewhat of an unobstructed view...you won't get that at Aceituna's.

Something for everyone ...badmitton, horseshoes, grilling, beach fun, laying out and if the heat is not for you...we have books and games in the air conditioning along with a game station kids bring your games!!

Love to fish...well you are in luck, the fishing on this stretch of beach is AWESOME...this area has been known to reel in some really great catches!

Don't want to stay in...Spanish Grant is approx 5 miles from all the many many many things to do on the Seawall and famous Galveston Strand...movies, putt putt golf, shopping and way to many fantastic places to eat to mention. Don't forget Moody Garden and Schliterbahn are not far away either!

However, if you do feel like staying in, you can enjoy throwing some steaks on the pit and enjoying a glass of wine on the downstairs deck with fantastic views and a wonderful breeze, that are in my opinion, the best at Aceituna's. We have recently added a FANTASTIC outdoor kitchen that comes equipped with a state of the art gas grill with rotisserie so you can enjoy the beach at the same time!

The upstairs kitchen is fully equipped to cook a gourmet meal and a full size washer and dryer makes things very easy for a long stay!

This property is owner managed so if you are celebrating something special and want to surprise that special someone with flowers or chocolate covered strawberries or maybe a birthday cake......let me know and I will do what I can to accommodate your needs.

It is our pleasure to share Aceituna's with you, my family loves this beach house and we hope you will too!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: We have been married for 25 years and have spent many a dollars renting beach houses all over Galveston Island. This year we stayed in a house in Spanish Grant and fell in love with the subdivision and the beach! That's when we knew it was time to buy our own and share it with everyone else. Our two boys (who are almost grown men) are very happy about our decision...we thought how great it would be to use it a lot and share it the rest of the year...I hope everyone enjoys it as much as we do!

                  Why the Owner Chose Spanish Grant:
                  The beaches are very clean......that was a huge attraction for us. The area seemed to be a close community where everyone watches out for each other and is family oriented.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  I love to sit on the bottom deck... the views of the water are fantastic. We have a 2 person chair on the bottom deck that has a small table in the middle and we love to sit and drink our coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening...keeps you young to enjoy life everyday!
