Space 1,775 sq. ft.

About the property

The beach is a short walk away from your door! A beautiful beach side home with large decks over-looking the ocean and beach. One deck off the main living area that wraps around the house and a second deck off the 3rd floor master bedroom that has a great view of the ocean.

'Island Time' is a great home for entertaining guests or it can be a private get-away just for your family. Our home has an open floor plan with a two story family room, opened up to the kitchen and dining area. The large windows off the family room and dining area offer great views of the beach area and ocean or you can go outside to the large deck and have an even better view!

The ground floor patio is a covered area with lots of space to hang out and enjoy cooler temperatures out of the sun. There are also two large wooden swings where you can sit and rock yourself to sleep, if you feel like it! This is where we like to bring our morning coffee and relax with the cool breeze from the ocean.

Island retreat

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was lovely and more tyhan expected. Enjoyed the closeness to the beach. Not even the early morning thunderstorms could hamper our fun. The house was just as promoted, very clean and spacious. Looking forward to our next stay.

Magnificiently clean property!

  • 5 of 5

Before commenting on this lovely home, I want to give a 5 star review of the home owner, Ron. He was professional and kind, quick to respond, and flexible with our family's need. It was a pleasure staying in your home, Ron! Thank you for your graciousness towards us, your warm emails, and your professional and quick responses. I have praised you over and over to our friends.

The home is an easy walk to the beach for those with toddlers. The views of the ocean are magnificent from the enclosed deck. We enjoyed many meals outside. There was seating for all of us outside, which we loved. The kids roamed freely since the deck was enclosed and the slats are close together. The deck proved to be one of the most enjoyed aspects of the home.

The neighborhood is wonderful, too. It's quiet and peaceful. We went walking one evening and enjoyed trying to find the sheep frogs.

The home is very clean and homey. We had everything we needed to cook meals. We loved having a washer and dryer at our convenience. The two swings downstairs provided rich conversations and entertainment for the kiddos.

From the comforts of the living room (enough seating) to an easy walk to the beach, we would gladly stay here again. It was a delight to stay in someone's home who so obviously loves their home and is warm to guests. We give this home 5 stars!

Great stay, comfortable house in good location

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay a lot, the house was very comfortable and very open/bright. Had a good view of the beach for being off the beach by a few rows, and very easy walk to the beach. Nice deck too. Would recommend.

Can't beat the view!

  • 4 of 5

Just spent a week at this comfortable, spacious house. The layout is great, kitchen beautifully updated and views fabulous from all levels.

Only way to improve it would be new window treatments (shades are worn), repaired or new deck furniture (bases are deteriorating from coastal climate) and replaced shower curtain liners (some mildew).

All in all, though, a recommended rental and good owner to work with!

We had a small family trip with 5 adults... We had a great time! The breeze at night is wonderful and you can hear the waves on the porch (awesome!) It was very quiet and comfortable! The next time we come to galveston- we will be trying to stay at this house again! The owner is very nice and responds to emails quickly. Definitely recommend this house!!

Owner's Response: Having renters like this is why we enjoy sharing our "get-away" beach home with others since they enjoy the exact same things we do about our home and the area. Thank you!

Great for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Island Time with 4 adults and 5 kids. It was perfect for our needs. The kitchen had absolutely every dish and utensil we needed. The towels and linens were plentiful and high-quality. The house is an easy walk to the beach and a short drive to the grocery store and Galveston Island State Park. Also, the neighborhood is lovely and quiet. We chatted with a few of our neighbors and two boys joined our families for a friendly game of football on the lawn, but we never heard a peep out of anyone except when we were talking with them.

About Ron Nunley

We bought this house when our kids were just infants so they could grow up knowing the beaches of Galveston. We fell in love with the Pirates Beach neighborhood and the surrounding area. It is perfect for family activities and safe for young kids.

Ron Nunley purchased this house in 2005

What makes this house unique

The house has fantastic views of the ocean from the large decks. We especially love the master bedroom deck where the adults can have privacy while the rest of the family spends time on the lower deck or the lawn surrounding the house.
