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.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Peggy and Jerry Clause are Owners/Managers/Housekeepers of the property. Peggy began maintaining and cleaning vacation rental cabins as a grade school child with her siblings and parents who owned vacation rentals. Jerry and Peggy have rented and maintained rental properties for 40 years. This large and lovely beach house was purchased in 2000. After each use Peggy and Jerry lovingly thoroughly clean and sanitize the house for the next family that will enjoy the house. Should unforeseen problems arise during occupancy, the owners respond immediately upon notification. The Clauses value each guest’s comfort.

Why the Owner Chose Galveston, TX, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
