Overview

About the property

Stay for Dickens on the Strand, Moody Gardens Festival of Lights events nearby

Three bedrooms lets this cozy, comfortable Beach Town Bungalow sleep six. A roomy, private, back yard oasis with a cabana tent and large shade trees makes this a great place to spend time with family and friends visiting, soaking up the sun, and cooking out on the gas/charcoal grill. The sound of waves breaking on the beach four blocks away makes it a great place to relax and enjoy a beautiful beach town evening. Beach cruiser bicycles and a boogie board are available for your use throughout your stay. A complementary SUP (stand-up paddleboard) rental or kayak tour (by appointment only) will provide a 2-hour fun-filled experience for your group. Half-day kayak fishing trips are available for your group at a discount. Call for details. Pets considered. Please contact before booking. The house has a secure wireless internet connection for those who just can't "dis-connect". We provide central a/c and heat, a laundry room complete with washer, dryer, iron, ironing board, extra beach towels, soap. Enjoy our outdoor shower to wash off the sand after a fun day on the beach. Children are welcome. Hey, if I didn’t live here I would want to stay here for my vacation!

We are ready for you to stay here any time of the year for a weekend, a week, or during any of the special events Galveston has to offer like Mardi Gras, the Lone Star Biker Rally, or Dickens on the Strand. Galveston has plenty to keep you busy but it’s also a great place to come unwind from the rat race. We are here to help you do either to the fullest. We live nearby and are available as little or as much as you need.

Bright and Clean House

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The house was very tidy, comfortably furnished and nicely decorated. The backyard is beautifully landscaped, has a 7 foot tall privacy fence, nice seating and the neighborhood is quiet. The location is very good for taking advantage of the Galveston restaurants and taking a walk on the beach after dinner.

Nice bonuses

  • 5 of 5

The owners have renting to a science. Nice, clean, good location for Galveston, friendly. One especially nice bonus was the den/third bedroom. It's somewhat set off from the other bedrooms, and proved perfect for letting our teen daughter have some space. We also made good use of the bicycles included in the rental -- a nice touch. And did I mention a king size bed in the master?

This house was perfect for our family trip to Galveston (4 adults, 1 toddler and 1 dog). We would not hesitate to stay there again if we return again!
