Property description

This villa is your perfect bungalow only steps from the Gulf waters, beach store shopping, restaurants, bars and still close to everything like; the Strand historical district, the Pleasure Pier, and Moody Gardens. If this house is booked, we have a sister property (2 bedroom 2 bath sleeping up to 6 people) at this same amazing location that may be available. Please check listing #687581 on VRBO.

In the off-season (late 2013 early 2014) this bungalow had quite a bit of work done! It had new coats of paint (both inside and outside), new decking as well as stairs built for both front and back of the house, new beach-style flooring installed throughout the entire home and a brand new Ashley Furniture sleeper sofa set purchased for the living room. It's almost like a brand new home and ready for the Summer Vacation Season! After our upgrades the Blue Crab was featured in Houston Houses and Homes magazine - Galveston Island Guide May 2014!

We are mentioned in the editor’s notes on page 8 and the interior of the bungalow is also pictured on page 49 with a few paragraphs about the home located on the previous page.

This bungalow is decorated in a tropical theme with vibrant colors and never lets you forget how close you are to the beach. The back yard is filled with tropical plants and palms and a large 8 foot picnic table if you would like to eat outside during your stay. Use the grill on the small back deck for a cook-out or just enjoy the sea breezes from the front porch. Whatever you decide to do Blue Crab bungalow will make for an amazing stay on Galveston Island!

This house is close to 3 wonderful restaurants in Galveston. Mosquito Cafe (14th) Sunflower Cafe (14th) and Shy Katz (16th). They just opened a new restaurant on Seawall just one block from the house called the Ocean Grill this Spring. You should check them out if you get a chance. It is also just over 1 block to Benno's on the Seawall for wonderful seafood as well!

I recommend you bring your bikes to the Island because anything you would want to do is all within cycling distance from the Blue Crab Bungalow!

There are so many fun things to do on Galveston that are all within steps to just a few miles away. Many great beaches, entertainment, shopping and miles of Gulf Coast beaches. Galveston’s festivals, special events and attractions are enjoyable for all! Check the Galveston Island website to see what's happening during your stay....there is at least one festival per month on the Island. Galveston has many enjoyable activities for single and family lives. Explore the the downtown Strand area and ride horse drawn carriages. Also don't forget to visit the Elissa (a historic sail boat from 1877) or the oil rig museum, both near the Strand on Pier 21. See a movie or enjoy many of Galveston's shops & art studios. You can rent bicycles (3 blocks from the house on 17th), scooters, golf carts & Segways to enjoy the Seawall during all parts of the day or just walk the beach, which is only a few steps across the way. The stretch of Seawall located just out from the house also offers Jet ski rentals in the Summer as well as chair and umbrella rental. But if you don't want to rents them, we provide 8 bag chairs at the Blue Crab bungalow, that you can bring to the beach or use for whatever you would like during your stay.

Many people also come to fish on one of Galveston's many piers (2 of which are just a couple blocks from the house) or charter a boat for more exciting catches. There are plenty of hidden coves and waterways to explore for your next fishing trip. Take the kids to Schlitterbahn, Galveston Island's amazing water park, or the NEW Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier which hosts many rides, games, and activities for all to enjoy as well as food at Bubba Gump's restaurant. Live Bands play on the end of the pier during the summer night weekends. Also entertainment is always just a few blocks away at the only Bar and restaurant over the sand on the seawall called The Beach Hut. Galveston has much to offer and explore and our home is right in the middle of all you could dream to do... it just needs you :)

We have another house on the island and will always be close if you have any question or issues during your stay. Feel free to contact us at any time! We look forward to sharing this amazing home with you and your friends and family!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: As travelers ourselves, we're excited for the opportunity to allow people to visit Galveston Island for a reasonable price; the hotel prices can be ridiculous here in the Summer, and it's better to have all of the comforts of home! We like sharing our home by the beach with others.We both love boating and anything that has to do with the water! We also enjoy cooking, strength training, scuba diving sailing, all other water sports!

Why the Owner Chose San Jacinto District:
We purchased this house to have a place just steps from the beach. We have lived in Galveston for over 15 years and love the Island life. We hope to share the experience with you!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Beautifully decorated Beach house with such vibrant and happy colors guaranteed to keep you smiling you whole vacation!
