Overview

About the property

Sweeping Ocean Views. Floor to ceiling double sliding glass doors.

Absolute Beachfront is Literally On The Beach!

The second you go down the stairs you are on sand.

You can wake up to a floor to ceiling view of the ocean and gaze on the exclusive beach - it will almost feel like your own. New granite counter tops and adjoined by glass back splash with soothing tones. Dolphin sightings are common and once in a while people riding Arabian horses. Plenty of beach for you to throw the ball if you should have a dog. The house is only 7 minutes from stores, shops, grocery, restaurants and only 10 minutes from famous Pleasure Pier. You can rent kayaks, bicycles etc, but in your private storage room there are numerous Adirondack chairs for underneath while barbecuing (charcoal), chairs to bring on to the beach, boogie boards and tons of beach toys, fishing rods and kites.

Everything you need is there! Pots, pans, utensils, blender, toaster, dishes, knives, cutting boards, chip/dip set, wine glasses, water glasses etc.

We have a total of three flat screen TV's. A 42 in. in living with a sound bar with bluetooth to connect your phones. Everything is connected through the X1 Xfinity system with voice remote. Netflix and a Bluray player are available in the living room.

There is a private cabana shower (both hot and cold water) and fireplace for romantic nights. Galveston has beautiful museums, ghost tours, boat and fishing excursions, horseback riding (which you can do on the beach off season) dolphin sighting tours and numerous parades, both themed for adults and children alike.

You have your personal driveway and can easily hold more than one car - up to four. The house is at the end of a cul-de-sac and has absolutely no house to your left - all you see is ocean.

Just minutes away you can rent kayaks, bicycles, paddle boards, jet skis etc.

NOTE: If you should want to bring your furry friend's, that's great! there will be a non-refundable fee per pet of $100 each.I am super dog friendly - there is a doggie door and the balcony is enclosed so your baby's can look at anyone walking by. I'm sorry, we cannot accept cats.

NEW! We now have Google Chromecast allowing you to stream Netflix, YouTube, Pandora, HBO Go, and directly from your phone or tablet to the TV! Also free Netflix attached to the X1 cable box. Just press the blue microphone on the remote and say "Netflix" and you will have access to all the great programming.

Please note:

Rates are subject to additional charges including tax, cleaning, linens / insurance.

doggies are welcomed - we just need to know so we can make accommodations for them!!!!

I am the owner - please feel free to call me for any reason!

Why Susan Burke chose Spanish Grant

This is one of the most affordable properties that is oceanfront.

There is no obstruction so you see right out into the waves. The house has been extensively refurbished and it is extremely private. You can frequently see dolphins from the house and occasionally Arabian horses. It is only 10 minutes away from Pleasure Pier and 7 minutes away from restaurants and outdoor activities, but in 7 minutes you are back at home with peace and quiet.

Lots of pool toys, boogie boards, and floats for your fun!

Always remember I am here for you for any reason!

What makes this house unique

You can watch the sunset in the swing below, or enjoy just sitting with a floor to ceiling view of the ocean on the couch. Two huge sliding glass doors open so you can have the ocean air or you can put on the fireplace which is really romantic. In the morning you literally prop up and see ocean waves.

This cabana shower is hot and cold so you can talk a private shower as the sun comes up, sunset, or under the stars.

Horses on the beach and dolphins are not uncommon to see,

There are very few people on the beach so it is private and quiet.

You have your own storage unit filled with barbeques (both gas and charcoal) lots of toys for little one and lots of extra chairs, floats, boogie boards etc for fun in and out of the water.

Another plus!

I am the owner, not a property management company, so I take your experience personally and will go above and beyond to making sure you beyond happy. I am local so anything you should need I am here for you!

We are sorry but we do not accept American Express

Guestbook comments from the manager

I have been going to Galveston for years - how did I not know about this place?



My kids went crazy because I dodn't have to get myself together to get everything inot the car and drive - I could just sleep in and they would just run down the stairs and off they go; I didn't have to worry about them at all. Plus I liked that I could make breakfast for everyone and could see the entire ocean. (-:

Comfortable with beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

The perfect setup and amount of room for us. Sitting in the swing in the shade or on the porch catching some sun, watching the waves and feeling the ocean breeze was incredibly relaxing. Thank you so much for sharing your home with my family.

Small but location location location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this little bungalow for 3 weeks! Yep you heard me, 3 weeks. We are a family of 5. My husband, myself, our 10 year old, 7 year old and 3 year old. The place is literally on the beach with no obstruction view whatsoever. The view was gorgeous and the breeze from the water was so awesome. Although it was very hot while we were there the breeze made it totally bearable. The house was totally everything we needed. It was lacking some kitchen essentials but I just let the owner know and she got me everything I needed and delivered it quickly. That is one of the benefits of renting this house. The owner, Susan, is like 15 minutes away and attends to anything you need or would like to address immediately. It was great! The living area is pretty small but the whole point is to be on the beach. It's just after 2 1/2 weeks my kids confined themselves in the house and wanted to be lazy. So when we were home all day we definitely felt the lack of space. One toilet only became a problem a couple of times. But let me tell you the best thing EVER about this house....the OUTDOOR SHOWER! I know every house has this, but the owner installed a hot water line out there so you can have a warm shower. Guys....it was dreamy! You are completely covered and after a day on the beach covered in sand, there is nothing like a warm beautiful shower! Out of the 3 weeks we were there, I showered indoors twice. THat's it. LOL! Here are some things to be aware of:

1. the yard has cockleburs. We brought our dog and the first hour and half of our vacation was spent picking 56 cockleburs out of my dog. It was pitiful, and my kids would step on them as well.

2. MOSQUITOS! They are freaking jurassic park vulture size. When the wind changes, they come in. Bug spray and sunscreen is a must.

3. Set up a tent and anchor it for the week. You have the benefit in this location to not be totally "public beach" accessible. So we put up a tent and left it all week. Only took it down when a couple bad storms rolled in. It was awesome to just walk out each day and go to our tent.

4. Bring your own beach towels! The house doesn't have any.

5. CALL THE OWNER! If something breaks, or is missing, or you need to know something...CALL HER! She responds immediately and she can't fix something she doesn't know is broke or missing. I found Susan to be incredibly helpful and resourceful.

Enjoy your stay! We loved this place will be back in the future.

Super Cute Little Gem!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here! The house was charming, clean, and Susan was such a delight! The three adults, a five-yr-old and two Frenchies had a ball - the house was spaced out nicely so all were accommodated. And being practically on the beach made it difficult to leave ... We will definitely be back!

So thankful we could bring our beloved dog with us! We all enjoyed our stay at this awesome cottage by the beach. Bed was very comfortable and everything we needed was handy. Owner gave great tips for restaurants and she was helpful in every way possible. Staying elsewhere in the future is not an option!! Will be back!!
