Why Jerry or Peggy Clause chose Galveston Island
This property is ideally located in Indian Beach Subdivision on West Galveston Beach where the house is on a quiet beach front street where lots are large and the traffic small. The house is about 150 feet from the beach. The beach is not crowded because it is primarily used by property owners and there are no streets nearby that allow cars to go onto the manicured beach. This factor helps promote a safe beach play area for young children. Portable beach chairs, tables, sun canopies, volleyball equipment, surf boards, and beach toys are enjoyed by families on the beach. This vacation house is spacious, has an open floor plan and well equipped with TVS, DVDs, kitchen ware, BBQ grills and lots of seating. Books for all ages, toys, magazines , games, movies, cards, chips, and more are there for guests’ use. The owners have been attentive to many small details like bedroom lamp lighting, a child’s crib, lots of bath towel racks, clothes hooks and much more to make one’s stay a joyous one. The house’s orientation on the lot is such that the beach view front porch is partially covered and shaded from mid-morning to sunset.
What makes this House unique
Some of the unique benefits to this property are its large beach front porch with lots of chairs, chaise lounges, and tables. The concreted space beneath the house has shaded parking space for several vehicles as well as chairs and tables to sit at for a cookout and enjoying the gentle breeze. Available downstairs is also a hot/cold shower with bench and dressing space and an available clothes line for air drying swim suits and towels.

Great place to stay!
Everything was as it was presented online - quiet neighborhood, away from the main beach in galveston!
Very close to the beach with lots of room
Rented this property for a group of 13, lots of bed space.. Nice kitchen, three full baths, great air conditioner! It gets hot in Texas on the beach. Would rent in a heartbeat.
Thanks. We try to ensure comfort and want people to feel at home and leave with a good taste. Go back and review our listing and it gives our background in rentals. Peggy my wife was involved with her family in the 50's in renting beach houses in Grand Isle, LA.
We try to work with the renters in first getting the property and respond to their needs rapidly.
Beautiful beach property with great views and easy access to the beach! The Clauses' are great!
Everything was as advertised, well maintained, and very comfortable. Great access to the beach and close enough Galveston and the sea wall. The Clause's were great hosts! We will definitely be back!
Beautiful Home lots of space and friendly home owners
This is a great home for short getaway or family events. The house is very spacious and well furnished .
Perfect for large families
Had a wonderful family vacation with plenty of sleeping accommodations. Loved the close proximity to the beach and the large deck that provides great views of the Gulf.
Wonderful week in Galveston Beach home!
We had a great week vacationing with our family at this beautiful beach home! The home was clean, spacious and well-equipped. There were 13 of us, aging from 18 months old to 63, and it met all of our needs perfectly. The house was actually even nicer and larger than what we had expected from the pictures (a nice surprise!). We enjoyed the fact that we were a little out-of-town and able to be in an area that was less "busy" and very family-friendly. The owners were exceptionally nice, and they were very kind, prompt, and accommodating in answering any questions that we had. I highly recommend renting this home, and someday, we hope to be able to visit here again, too!
A moderate size, but fully stocked grocery store (Seven Seas Grocery) with nearly all the food items a group would need is approximately 1 mile from the house. The store’s perks are the early AM coffee, cooked on-site deli foods, great fresh beef, and great assortment of wines, beer, and more. Galveston City, with its large historical areas of beautiful old and very large homes, has many fine casual restaurants and is an easy drive of about 15 minutes from the house. Galveston has many one-of a-kind shops, museums, theater, miniature golf, bungee jumping, a huge water park and much more to entertain all.
