Property description

This wonderful home was built in 1950's - 2800 square foot of comfortable living. All the charm of a house of that era yet all the modern conveniences we have come to expect today. She has 4 bedrooms (3 upstairs, 1 on the main level), 2 baths, and wonderful new state of the art kitchen, large lounge and dining on the main level and a second lounge/den upstairs.

For smaller groups, you can rent the downstairs only. 1 bedroom with futon in lounge - sleeps 4. See rates for pricing.

Want to relax outside? There's a nicely landscaped cozy patio in the rear with a charcoal BBQ, table and chairs. Or if you prefer, a front patio on the 2nd floor.

Want to relax at the beach? Then you're just a short 2 block stroll and your feet will be in the sand.

Conveniently located to all that Galveston has to offer including the Pleasure Pier, Moody Gardens, The Strand, Schlitterbahn Water Park and many restaurants and bars.

Off-street parking for up to 4 vehicles.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I have enjoyed living in this area since purchasing the property and since I travel so much in the summer would like others to experience the convenience to beach, restaurants, shopping , golf and all the Island has to offer.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
If you are a small group or a large family you will enjoy the different living spaces this home has to offer. Want to have some space from the kids? Put them in the upstairs comfy lounge with a game or a video as it is very well equipped yet close enough to monitor their activities. There is an extensive library of books, board games, DVD's and VHS tapes for your enjoyment.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Walk 4 houses down and you are looking at the Gulf of Mexico without paying the huge cost of a beach front home. Best of all, you are in the middle of town with all it has to offer. It is a short drive, walk or cab ride to have a fine dinner. We have a great movie theater and the Pleasure Pier is a great hit with the kids!!
