Property description

This is a great 3 Bedroom, 2 bath house with beach views, in Bermuda Beach. This is a fisherman's fantasy and a beach-goer's bonanza. The homeowners offer their own blend of unique Texas hospitality and gracious accommodations. Located less than 60 miles south of Houston and 3 miles from the west end of the Seawall. This great home is just seconds away from the beach. It is the perfect place for that family vacation or event, family reunion, or a small wedding or reception. Come share in the panorama and spectacular views of Bermuda Beach, unforgettable sunsets, and the glistening waters of the Gulf of Mexico. You will find upscale furnishings and design throughout this house. The master bedroom suite is the downstairs floor, with a modern spacious master bath. The sun-bathed living, dining and kitchen areas are maximized for space. Just outside is a grand deck that is known as 'Quig's Quarterdeck,' in honor of its owner. It provides lots of breezes, sunshine, and great views of the beach. You will be mesmerized by the sunrises, sunsets, and evening moons at this ideal retreat. We are in a community haven that is quaint, private, and peaceful. Downstairs beneath the house is a picnic table and a constant breeze. HISTORIC GALVESTON is just a short drive along the scenic coastal highway. Extend your cruise (or come early!) and partake of the riches of Galveston Island: Schlitterbahn Water Park, Moody Gardens, The Seawall, downtown Strand, museums, shopping, restaurants, The Grand 1894 Opera House, Mardi Gras in February, the ETC (East-end Theater Company), and numerous year-round cultural experiences.

Car: Recommended

This house is on the 'near' west end of Galveston on the third row from the Gulf - nice and quiet, but close enough to town so that you can go there easily if that's what you want to do. Galveston hosts annual Mardi Gras celebrations, Lone Star Biker Rally, Dickens on the Strand, and monthly ArtWalks. Lots to see and do always!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1967

About the owner: This house was built by our parents in the 1960's. It was our getaway from Houston. We spent weekends and all summers here. We learned to fish, crab, find shells and sharks' teeth, swim, and surf. There are more memories in this house than can be recorded.

Why the Owner Chose Bermuda Beach, Galveston, TX, USA:
close to the beach; great sunrise and sunset views; overall positive

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Great views of the beach from inside and outside the house. The large porch named after our dad, Quig's Quarterdeck. Awesome sunsets! Cozy and comfortable - want to sleep late? No problem, drop the storm shutters. Unique property, great kitchen and dining room will handle a large family and friends. Two bedrooms and bath upstairs, spiral staircase downstairs to large master bedroom and bath.
