If you love the sea, and need somewhere to unplug, unwind, and just be you: this is the place. A cheerful beach bungalow, located in far west Galveston in the resort community of Pointe West; the Happy Mullet is a beautiful place to relax and reconnect with your family. From the sparkling sunrise, to the gorgeous sunsets, enjoy spectacular beach views from inside or out on our two large decks. Watch the dolphins play from the outdoor sectional sofas or while you dine alfresco with outdoor seating for 7-8 on the lower balcony. Keep reading for our special amenities:
Come on in, kick your shoes off, and relax in the living room on comfy couches. Enjoy a beverage and watch the game on the 55" HDTV, or just soak up the ocean views just outside.
Seating for 8 at the solid wood dining table, another 3 at the kitchen bar, and 7-8 on the outdoor table. Plenty of room for delicious dinners or just whiling away the evening assembling a puzzle with the family or playing a rousing game of Monopoly (there are several board games and puzzles in the house).
When we visit Galveston, usually we have a gaggle of kids at the house, and sometimes we prefer to cook leisurely, dinners as opposed to going into town. If you do too, the kitchen is fully stocked, including common spices, ingredients, condiments, and cooking utensils: including food processor, rotating waffle maker, crock pot, griddle pans, paella pan, and a small fryer. There's a charcoal grill downstairs, too for the Grillmasters in your group. Caffeine needs are met with a regular coffee maker, a Keurig, and if you’re in need of a cafecito or café con leche: a Cuban stove-top espresso maker.
Back to those evenings, when you're downstairs, enjoying adult beverages with your friends: send the kids upstairs to their room. I'm pretty sure they won't fight you on that. The "Kid Room" might even attract some adults. The large suite has two full/twin bunk beds. Luxury "Comfy Sac" bean bags, private balcony, large jacuzzi tub (to clean up those sandy urchins after a day at the beach, or for an adults only soak), 42" HDTV, a Playstation 3, an Atari Flashback 8 with 120 games, and (here's the cool part) a Cabaret style Ms. Pacman arcade game featuring the best of retro including: Dig Dug, Galaga, and many more. Even rainy days are fun with a place like this to hang out.
The bedrooms and bathrooms are lovely and clean, with high end furniture and linens.There’s a queen bed on the main floor, a king and queen upstairs (as well as the bunk beds in the kid room). There are four bathrooms, including a double vanity in the kid room, so hopefully that will keep those bathroom lines to a minimum. We'll even provide travel size soaps and shampoo in case you forget.
More importantly, this is a beach vacation, right? Well, the beach is literally just steps away. This is a private beach, so it never gets super crowded. Maybe we're biased, but we think the beaches of West Galveston are prettier than the ones closer to town. The water is cleaner, the beach is kept immaculate, and the vibe is serene. After your day of surf and sun, there is an outdoor shower downstairs where it feels so good to wash off the day.
Did I mention that this is a resort community? For a nominal fee, you can enjoy the amenities of the Pointe West Beach Club. The club features, two pools, two hot tubs, a lazy river, exercise room, game room, restaurant, bar, and gift shop.
Bikes and helmets included. Mix of little kid and big kid/adult with 1x16" with training wheels, 3x20", 2x26", and 2x27" (wheel sizes).
We share our nice beach chairs too.
