Looking to impress your family and friends during your next work retreat or family reunion? Why not house them in this amazing home in sunny Galveston Island? Easy access to some of Texas' finest beaches, along with a wide selection of amenities and comforts, will make this group getaway one to remember.
This duplex is just a block and a half away from the shores of the beach, where warm gulf waves and soft golden sands await. On your way back home, take a walk along the historic Seawall Boulevard - on top of providing stunning views of the sea, you can take in the fare from the restaurants and bars that line the road.
This listing is for renting the entire house for 20 guests. If you're interested in simply renting the first or second floors of this duplex - each of which sleeps 10 guests - check out the appropriate listings!
Built over a century ago, this impressive house has been extensively renovated, combining modern convenience with old-fashioned architecture. You can take in the stately structure of the house - to say nothing of the views of swaying palm trees and distant gulf waves - from the first-floor porch or second-floor deck, or you can head inside to relax in either of the well-furnished living rooms.
Brighter colors downstairs and cooler colors upstairs provide energizing and relaxing atmospheres that go well with each room's respective paintings and wall ornaments. Both rooms have high-quality sofas, armchairs, and coffee tables to admire, as well as flatscreen cable TVs. A DVD library provides plenty of entertainment thanks to the DVD player, and full WiFi means you can stream even more movies on Netflix!
Cooking for so many guests is no easy task, but with a well-equipped kitchen on each floor of the duplex, you have all the space and appliances you could possibly need. Both kitchens have dishwashers for easy cleanup, spacious countertops, and ample dishware. Savor your meals at either of the dining room tables, or head onto the deck or patio to dine in the fresh air by the grill!
Twenty guests can call this duplex home at once, with 10 to a floor and six total bedrooms. Each floor has a well-appointed master bedroom equipped with queen-size beds and flatscreen TVs, as well as a second bedroom with a queen-size bed and a kid's room with twin-size bunk beds. Two large sofa beds on each floor round out the sleeping options. Each floor also has two shining bathrooms with upscale touches like granite vanities, along with a half-bath for freshening up after a long, soothing shower. And if you do bring two dogs (25-pound weight limit applies), there's just an additional fee.
As tempting as it can be to wile away the hours at the nearby beach, Galveston Island has so much more to offer you! Fishing charters like the nearby Get Hooked let you explore the waters of the Gulf of Mexico in a whole new way, and maybe even bring back something fresh and tasty for dinner.
You can also explore the waters by kayak thanks to a rental shop just to the northwest, but don't worry if that's too intimidating. More structured thrills await at the island's two incredible theme parks, Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn Galveston. Both are just under six miles away!
