VRBO Bear swimming with the Dolphins at "Dolphin Watch" in Galveston, TX 03/20/2008

VRBO Bear stayed here:

I had a ‘beary’ wonderful time visiting Dolphin Watch on Galveston Island in Texas! This property is everything I need in a vacation home. I especially loved the satellite TV in every room while relaxing at home after a day of fun on the island. I enjoyed hearing and seeing the beauty of the ocean from the spacious front deck. Having an outdoor sink or shower is a must after spending time on the beach, and this property had BOTH available for my use. It was a great!

The layout of this home fit my bear taste perfectly. The kitchen was ‘beary’ nice to cook in. (You’ll love the granite counter tops!) The home was clean, and the décor was lovely – just take a look at the photo of my “swim with the dolphins”! The home is conveniently located a short distance away from the hustle and bustle of the city. If you’re planning on visiting Galveston, you’ll be sure to feel ‘beary’ at home at Dolphin Watch.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: I am from Texas & have lived in Houston since 1977. I am self employed and enjoy spending time with my family. Our home in Galveston is a perfect getaway from the city pressure!!!

Why the Owner Chose Galveston, TX, USA:
We bought this house in Galveston in 2001 from my business partners family 'The Fikaris Family'. They built the house in 1967. We completely remodeled the home in 2001 and are continually adding something new every year.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home is a 3 minute walk to the beach, and we have 2 fountains, 2 large water falls, & a spa on the property. I love throwing the frisbe with the kids and having my favorite glass of wine on the deck overlooking the gulf.
