About the Property
House, 2+ Bedrooms w/ Loft + Den, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps up to 9 in comfort)
'Dolphin Daze Galveston' is a well-appointed beach side get away; a “Destin”-Style HOUSE surrounded by large lawn/play areas. It rises high above its surrounding Cul-De-Sac master-designed community (Pointe San Luis) on Galveston's PEACEFUL, NO DRIVE BEACH on the west end. The retreat is a short 35 mile drive from Houston and is positioned 'half way' (about 15 to 20 minutes) between Freeport & Galveston (city) - the location is the best the island has to offer - sport/wade fishing (2 minutes from San Luis Pass - walkable!), just moments from Shlitterbaun Water Park, Moody Gardens and Island night life. Dolphin Daze Galveston is priced to rent! No hotel can accommodate your group like Dolphin Daze and no price can compare!
Dolphin Daze - 4-STORIES w/ panoramic beach & bay views, Hardee siding (noise dampening), 2 newly decorated, private Queen bedrooms (master & guest - both equally nice!) w/ 2 full, private baths (master w/ Jacuzzi/whirlpool tub & guest bath w/ large tiled walk-in shower w/comfort bench); a full-sized futon in the master bedroom; a Queen sleeper sofa w/ a 1/2 bath in family room; & the 'Eagle's Nest' loft sleeps 3 (twin bunks). Accommodates 9 in beds. The hot/cold ground level shower (w/ privacy enclosure) makes after sun clean-up delightful. The “Eagle’s Nest” 4th floor loft offers the best 360 degree unobstructed beach & bay view on its sundeck to watch DOLPHINS frolic in the Gulf! This resort paradise is surrounded by a landscaped play yard, shady palms, a covered hammock/'nap area' & a relaxing swing. Listen to the waves, see migratory & rare birds & forget the big city - from the hammock on the ground floor to the Eagles Nest on the 4th level, you will be happy you selected Dolphin Daze Galveston!

Year Purchased: 1998
About the owner: Our property is personally owned & gently used by family from Houston, Tx. I'm in the environmental consulting business, enjoy art, decorating & our get-aways to the west end of Galveston. Happy to share our paradise with you - the best the island has to offer!
Why the Owner Chose Pointe San Luis (Galveston, TX, USA):
Our family is from Houston & we enjoy the short trip to the island for peacful get-aways! With air travel aggrivations & hotel stays not attractive to us, we enjoy the West End of Galveston island with its proximity to attractive nightlife, sport & wade fishing & gourmet dining. The west end offers safe, pretty & family oriented, relaxation time!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Dolphin Daze Galveston is a very unique construction that offers 4 stories & unobstructed views - the best on the island. Very peacful, quiet and romantic! Compare a hotel to our house for a family of 5 and you will find our pricing very agreeable & the resort experience much more enjoyable than a stuffy, overpriced hotel!
