Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: This house is owned by ,Beth and Max. Max and Beth have been married for 30 years and spent that time in Colorado with their 4 children and 4 grands while taking many visits to their favorite place, the beach. Now we are putting our experience into having a house that we wish had been available for us.

Why the Owner Chose Galveston, TX, USA:
We have vacationed with our children and Texas family forever. This is a favorite area for us, away from the noise of the seawall but close enough to visit when we want to enjoy the downtown Galveston area. We have wanted to own for years and the opportunity became available and we went for it. This house will embrace you and welcome you in when you arrive, it is that kind of place. Warm, inviting, relaxing, embracing, you will feel like you have come home.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
When you are coming down the road this little blue house stands out from the others. It is a cute cottage with great views of the water without being right on the beach. The fenced yard has 11 palm trees and lots of grass for all kinds of games, and a break from the sand. It is cool and refreshing to lay around and read a book in the hammock, or play a little volley ball.
