Welcome to our beachfront home, the Bluewater Star. Our 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath home sits in the dunes on a half-acre lot only footsteps away from the beach. Decks surround three sides of the house and each bedroom opens up to a deck, giving everyone lots of elbow room and plenty of ocean views. A private walkway leads you from the back deck straight over the dunes to the beach.
The kitchen, bar and living room is the focal point of our home. A soaring ceiling and two-story wall of windows gives you views of the ocean from anywhere in the house.
The owners of the house both have a background in the hospitality industry and they know that to entertain properly one must have a great kitchen. Restaurant quality cookware, bar ware, utensils and beautiful platters, bowls and tableware make meal preparation and entertaining wonderfully easy and best of all fun.
Two of the four bedrooms are masters, each with a king bed, private bathroom and crib. One of the masters is on the main floor and the other master (along with the other two bedrooms) are upstairs. The third bedroom has 2 queen beds and the fourth bedroom has two sets of bunkbeds. The bottom bunk on one side is a double. These last two bedrooms share a bathroom. Another half bath is located on the main floor next to to the laundry room.
Across the street is a pier for crabbing, and fishing is everywhere. You can fish in the surf, in the bay, off a pier or deep sea with a charter boat. If you want someone else to catch your fish, just run over to the nearby seafood market for the catch of the day. If you don't feel like cooking, there are several wonderful one-of-a kind restaurants nearby.
Galveston, with its historic homes and local entertainment, is an easy and scenic 1/2-hour drive up the coast.
Even though summer is the most popular time of the year, the off season is a great time of year to come to the beach too. Beaches are empty, lodging is less expensive and days are typically sunny and warm enough that you can still dip your toes in the ocean. Nights may have a bit of chill in the air which is fun for bonfires on the beach. December is the time for family get-togethers and holiday celebrations and we like to celebrate too with a Christmas tree and festive holiday touches.
January and February are really the only months that are cold but even so, it's cozy inside where you can enjoy the view of the ocean from the comfort of the sofa next to a real fireplace. Relax and unwind with a good book and retreat from the world. Or bundle up and take a solitary walk on the beach where the only sounds are the waves and seagulls. Take a jog, explore the beach and work up an appetite so that when you get back you'll be ready to browse the internet or our cookbooks and learn how to make hearty dishes like cioppino, paella, stews, chilis and chowders. Recipes that take more time and patience than you usually have provide a very pleasant way to reconnect with family and friends.
