Property description

We are only 150 feet from the beach on a dead end street. Super fishing, swimming and shell gathering. We have 2 kayaks for your use. The ramp (not ADA) allows seniors or elderly pets access to the house.

2beachfun in Palm Beach that does not allow MOTOR vehicles on the beach. We are on a dead end road to the beach with 2 protected views to the East and South. Our deck has some shade all day. The deck is accessed by a ramp and stairs with a gate on each to keep small children and pets safe on the deck.

Recently we completely remodeled our house installing a solid vinyl plank floor, repainted the inside of the house, installed new plumbing fixtures in the baths and added 3 new bedrooms making a total of 4 bedrooms. A new grill on the garden covered patio, a new electric range with convection oven, new microwave, new washer and dryer are off the hall inside the house new 22 inch and 37 inch TVs with Dish. We have a very quiet dishwasher that is quieter than two people talking, a Kitchen Aid refrigerator/freezer with ice maker. We have an extra refrigerator and freezer in the ground floor storage area that is accessible to you for more cool storage space.
We have all the dishes, pots and pans that we need for ourselves to use the house. There are two coffee pots. One is 12 cups and one is 4 cup. We even leave the spices out for you. We are not lacking anything in the house. We have ceiling fans in all the bedrooms, kitchen - dining and living areas. We installed new hurricane proof windows and doors which makes the house very quiet inside.
We have a wood burning fireplace that is nice to have romantic times in cool weather.

We have large windows in all the rooms so the house is bright and cheery. The cathedral ceiling in the living area of the house makes it feel very large. The dining table will seat 8 with 5 more at the large bar.
We furnish all linens and cleaning is included in the rent. Paper products are furnished. We have 2 kayaks for your use.
We have TWO separate Air Conditioning systems so you will be cool in the house.
We live here in the winter season from Oct until May each year. We do spend Thanksgiving and Christmas with our grandchildren so if you are interested in a beach holiday check our calendar.

We CAN ACCEPT ON LINE CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS.

Car: Necessary

2beachfun is in Palm Beach subdivision. Most homes are smaller than ours with about 1/3 occupied by full time residents. We are less than a minute walk to the beach on a dead end street so it is safe for children to walk to the beach. No vehicle traffic on our very wide beach.

The beach itself is beautiful for finding treasures like shells that wash up from the sea. There is mostly fine sand with shells interspersed. In the summertime, the water around Galveston is warm. During certain weeks throughout the year, beach goers will see a line of seaweed that has washed up on the beach. Seaweed is not always there and is not the norm, but it is natural and just a part of the beach ecosystem. It is partially responsible for building up the beach and dunes that we all enjoy.

Our house is all on one floor. We are very close to all the activities in Galveston. It only takes about 15 minutes to get to the Strand and downtown Galveston.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: My wife and I built this house for ourselves in 1996. Everyone just loves our house. There is nothing we would change after having used it for 19 years. We live here in the Oct to May season full time. We leave in the fall for a few weeks to spend time with our grandchildren so if you are interested in a holiday visit to the beach check our calendar as I keep it up to date.

Why the Owner Chose Palm Beach (Galveston, TX, USA):
We built the house because we could not find a house that was right for us. It is close in to Galveston with great views and a short one minute walk to the very wide beach.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house works well for one or two or three couples couple or a large family. The large deck of about 800 square feet will give everyone room outside. The neighborhood is very quiet. The ground floor garden area (700 sq ft in size) has several tables and about 7 chairs with a rocking couch. This area is always cool, but we did not know that when we put in the two ceiling fans which we never use. There is an outdoor (hot and cold water) shower in the garden area also. There is a hammock, 6 or 8 chairs, a rocking chair that seats 2, and several tables. We have a charcoal grill for cooking and BBQ. We like to sit here in the afternoon shade and enjoy the breezes off the water.
