Why Walt Burger chose Galveston

Vicki and Walt already have a lovely beach front property in Sea Isle on the West End of Galveston. We decided to purchase a home close to the pleasure pier and skate park for our guests that like to be closer to the action in town.

What makes this house unique

Close to the Plesure Pier, the Float bar, Skate park, tennis courts and playground. Garage has fooze ball table and still room for two cars.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I cannot thank you enough for allowing my family to stay at your beach house. It truly gave us the best time we've had since we started visiting Galveston. The house felt so comfortable and welcoming and the location was perfect. Everything we needed was available. I look forward to renting the beach house again next year. Once more, thanks so much from my family and I.

Excellent Choice!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location! We were walking distance from just about everything on the island. The Pleasure Pier was practically in the back yard. We walked to the Galveston Convention Center for our competition and found some really fun little places to eat. Float and the Spot are just a couple of blocks down the street. I didn't even move my car all weekend! The owners provided everything that we could possibly need for our trip. The house would definitely sleep two families comfortably. Big, fluffy pillows on nice, soft, clean beds were provided in every room. The kids enjoyed the foozball table and stereo in the garage. They have a nice little picnic table area in the back yard as well. We will definitely be back this summer!

Big house!

  • 5 of 5

This house is much more than i expected! I dont know if I liked the down stairs or up stairs better. Worked out perfect for all the kids we had. The kids stayed up stairs and adults down. and the park was directly across the street from the house. At night the adults walked right across the street to play a game of tipsy tennis. LOL It was nice to have a small fenced in backyard for the dog to hang out when we went to dinner without fear that he would get out. The beach is seriously 1 block from the house! If you dont mind jay walking you are within 2 min. We didn't want to take our chances so we walked a little out of the way to the crosswalk... One night we walked about 15 min down the seawall and ate at a delicious restaurant called Miller's. There is tons to do with in walking distance of the house not to mention Pleasure Pier! I would definitely stay here again!!

Easy walk to the beach. Great playground across the street for the kids. Not far from where we needed to be for the start line. Very affordable for our family.

Perfect beach house!

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely perfect and so convenient. To check in all we needed was a combination so there was no hassle with meeting the property owner and coordinating times. The house had everything we needed! The kitchen had all of the pots, pans, utensils, cups and everything we needed to cook and clean. The bathrooms had plenty of towels. The house was very clean and organized for us. We had a group of 8 adults and there was plenty of space and enough beds for everyone. The best part was that the house is 1 block and a 5 minute walk from the beach and the pier. It was a perfect location! The garage was also great for the 2 cars and we ended up walking most places. The owners also made check out very easy and hassle-free. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone who wants a beach get away!

No words to describe our stay!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place! We had a total of ten people and everyone had a great time! The house was absolutely perfect-plenty of room, plenty of area to cook in, bedrooms were spacious! Parking was terrible everywhere we went, so it was nice being able to walk everywhere from the house! Already planning our next trip! See you soon!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind review. During Spring Break yes the parking is scarce in Galveston. Luckily we have a driveway large enough for 4 cars and you can catch a bus to the strand right on the corner just north of the house. The trolley will be back this summer and you can catch it with just a very short 5 minute walk from the house.
