About the Property

House, 5 Bedrooms, Sleeps 10

This spacious 5 bedroom house comfortably sleeps 10. This secluded beauty is one of two houses located on a very large and uniquely private piece of land, located between Bermuda Beach and Pirate's Beach. Only the grass in the yard and the dunes separate you from the beach. With a deck that is so massive it is almost as big as the house (I'm not kidding) you will have plenty of room to lounge around and take in the sun and warm ocean breezes. There is an out door shower with hot and cold water--feels good after a sandy day at the beach. There are 2 hammocks for those who may want to relax and read or grab a nap. You are only minutes away from the new Schlitterbahn Water Park, Moody Gardens and the Galveston Strand. We would like to share our home with caring, thoughtful friends and families. Sorry, we are unable to accommodate events, parties, weddings, and receptions. MAXIMUM NUMBER OF GUESTS IS TEN
The minimum age for rental is 25 years.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I am retired from an Emergency Department, where I worked for 30 years, as a Registered Nurse. My children always loved the beach, so I built this house to be enjoyed by them, their husbands and my grandchildren. We rent the house when we aren't using it. Why leave our home and such a beautiful view go to waste, when it can be enjoyed by another family or small group?

Why the Owner Chose Galveston, TX, USA:
"Ocean's Twelve" is very private. There is a clear view of the beach and the waves out the large front windows and from the giant deck. We try to keep the interior upscale with a relaxing feeling.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There is a swing and a hammock on the ground floor, and a hammock on the main deck. Small riding toys are there for the children to enjoy. You can have meals on either of the picnic tables on the ground floor or the round dinner table on the main deck. There is plenty of seating for those who want to sit on the deck and take the sun or relax in the hammock on the shady side of the deck.
