About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Our ocean front beach house sleeps 10 to 12 people with 2 king size beds and 2 sets of bunk beds in 3 spacious bedrooms. The master bathroom has a walk-in marble shower. The scenery view from the large partial covered Deck overlooks the ocean for miles and miles. Make meals with all necessary kitchen items (we have replaced toaster, blender, coffee pot. can opener), then sit down in the dining area surrended by windows or the deck to enjoy your meal . You can watch cable from 4 different televisions in the house and the main TV is 48'. And as the day comes to an end walk out onto the deck to watch the sun go down and enjoy a nice drink. During the day you can step down to the uncovered part of the deck and have the benefit of relaxing or tanning on the patio furniture. If you want to cool off, walk out the gate and onto the sand and jump in the water and when you through, rinse off with the enclosed out door shower. Sit down stairs and watch your children play in a yard full of grass surrended by a secure fence.

About Ellen Wilmoth

I love to travel and get away from the hustle and bustle, so this was a good place to take my wife and family and invite our friends. Take walks along the beach with my wife.

Ellen Wilmoth purchased this house in 2007

Why Ellen Wilmoth chose Gulf Coast

This is way to bond with my family without the city life

What makes this house unique

Long walks on the beach.

Great location but needs some attention

  • 3 of 5

There is a lot that is great about this rental:

- Awesome balcony that looks out to the ocean

- Great access to the beach

- Outside shower under the house to rinse off before going back into the house

- Fenced area around the house for kids to play

- Open kitchen and living room

There were some problems with the rental that if addressed, would really make it a better rental:

- The grill was so rusted out and dirty, it is unusable.

- The hall bathroom has a bath, but no shower. It is inconvenient for a beach rental.

- The bed linens and pillows were dirty and old. They should have been thrown out long ago.

Owner's Response: Hi Mike, Thank you for your suggestions. We always appreciate our renters feedback. I would like to address them. The Hall bathroom DOES have a Shower/ Tub. We just had it replaced a few months ago. Now the Master Bath has ONLY a SHOWER, but no TUB. We replace the grill once a year and sometime 2 times a year. There will be a new one for the 4th of July Weekend. We replace our linens frequently. I have purchased new linen and pillows and will have the other ones thrown out. I hope that I have addressed all your concerns. Thank you, Ellen

Our favorite beach home to stay at in Galveston. Private beach with awesome view from the double deck on the top & the area under the home is perfect with pavers & always a breeze.

What a view!

  • 4 of 5

The layered deck is fantastic for a view. Great deck! The bedroom carpet is old but the location makes up for everything. It's not near the public entrance so we had the beach all to ourselves. We were lucky and had no seaweed all weekend. The house is nice and spacious. We had a fantastic long weekend. The only thing is I wish the owner had some way of providing a key for the pier. At the last house we rented you could pay an extra 50 for it.

Owner's Response: Thanks Lydia for your review. The carpet in the bedrooms may be a bit out dated, however, we do keep the carpet(s) cleaned, and of course the rest of the house is tiled. The Key to the fishing pier is something we have decided not to let renters use, but will reconsider again for returning guest.
