If you've ever wondered what it would be like to have a beach in your backyard, now's your chance to find out. When you stay at this beautiful, three-bedroom vacation rental, you'll enjoy lovely views of the gulf, a one-minute walk to the beach, and other convenient amenities.
This elegant, newly constructed cottage sits a little more than 10 miles away from historic downtown Galveston in a quiet residential neighborhood located right alongside the beach. The Moody Gardens amusement park and Schlitterbahn Water Park are just six and a half miles away. Additionally, the Houston airport is a little more than 75 miles to the north.
Walking into this gorgeous cottage is like stepping into the pages of a glossy home magazine. The decor is chic and contemporary, with whimsical coastal-inspired influences.
The main living space is open-concept, combining the living and dining rooms with the kitchen. Relax on the cozy couches as you flip through the cable channels on the large flatscreen TV, or choose from the DVD library and put on a family movie night. WiFi is also available if you would rather stream something to your personal device.
Prepare a delicious home-cooked meal in the fully equipped kitchen; afterward, let the dishwasher take care of cleanup. Eat in comfort at the eight-person dining room table, or take a seat at one of the five stools at the breakfast bar. If you'd rather dine outdoors, you'll find a large selection of patio furniture on the extended deck. There's also an outdoor kitchen area with a gas grill on the ground floor, perfect for preparing the day's catch of fish.
Back inside, you'll find three bedrooms and three full bathrooms in this stunning home. Two of the bedrooms are master suites. In one, you'll find a king-size bed, en suite bathroom, and direct access to the deck. The other features a queen-size bed along with a private bathroom.
The third bedroom offers two sets of twin-size bunk beds, great for kids. In addition, one of the couches in the living room converts to a queen-size sofabed, bringing the total occupancy of the home to 10 (eight adults). Up to two family dogs are also welcome to join you for your stay for an additional nightly fee.
This Galveston retreat also includes a private washer and dryer as well as an outdoor, ground-level shower, so even after a long day at the beach, your group can stay fresh and clean.
Speaking of the beach, it's less than a tenth of a mile from your front door, so you and your friends can wake up and be at the water within minutes. If you're interested in surfing, boogie boarding, or stand-up paddleboarding, rentals and lessons are all available close by.
If you find yourself needing a break from the beach, head to Moody Gardens or Schlitterbahn for thrill rides and other assorted amusements. There is a large commercial district a little more than seven miles away, which offers a variety of shops and restaurants. The historic Strand District in downtown Galveston is also worth a visit, particularly for fans of Victorian architecture.
For a large family or friend group hoping to spend a lot of time in the sand and surf, this Galveston vacation rental can't be topped. Reserve your dates now!
