This newly renovated 3BR/2BA Galveston home is just 2 blocks from the beach.
After a day by the ocean, enjoy a backyard BBQ in the beautifully landscaped yard and breathtaking orchid tree, or unwind on the front porch swing.
Hardwood floors, cool-tone colors, and contemporary decor are found throughout this classic Galveston bungalow. Unique artwork adds modern touches, while tropical notes hold onto the historical authenticity setting this home apart from the rest. The home has also been renovated to add brand-new copper pipes and a commercial-grade tankless water heater to help ensure the water stays hot throughout your stay.
You can walk to the historic Pleasure Pier or stroll along Seawall Boulevard. The shops and restaurants of the Strand are just over a mile away, and there's an array of close-to-home dining options.
ABOUT THE HOUSE
After a day on the beach, cool off in the living room where you’ll find two chairs and a sleeper sofa that pulls out to a full-size bed. Chat about the day’s adventures in front of the decorative fireplace, or watch your favorite movies on the 60” flat-screen TV. There's additional bench seating by the window and two chairs in the open foyer next door -- ideal for large groups.
The renovated kitchen has a pass-through window to the dining room and features granite countertops, a mosaic tile backsplash, and a gas range. Pack a lunch for the beach or sip a glass of wine and prepare a light evening meal, and then gather at the six-person dining table by the bay window. Or take your meal to the back patio where you’ll find another table for six.
After dinner, head to the game room for a round of shuffle puck -- an indoor take on the classic beachfront pastime.
Later, sit on the front porch swing for a nightcap, or head to the back porch that overlooks a lush landscaped yard and stunning orchid tree.
Upstairs, the master bedroom includes a king bed with white linens and a newly remodeled en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower and freestanding soaking tub. One guest room has a king-size bed and the other has two twin-over-full bunks. There's a large hallway bathroom with a tub/shower combination.
On-street parking is available.
This home is just a few blocks from the beach. Stretch out on the sand, take a stroll along Seawall Boulevard, or check out the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier for amusements, rides, and boardwalk eats.
There are several dining options within walking distance, including Fish Tails and Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.—both about a 7-minute walk.
The shops and restaurants of the Strand Historic District are just a mile away. Transit lovers won’t want to miss the Galveston Railroad Museum. If you’re hungry, try Brews Brothers, a stylish taproom with American fare. Pick up an ice cream cone at the 1920s-style La King’s Confectionary and explore Saengerfest Park.
Adventurers will want to hit Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark and Moody Gardens, which features an aquarium, zip line, and paddleboat. Both are a 15- to 20-minute drive.
