About the property

Beautiful Open Concept! 4 Bedroom, 3.5 Bath & Ground Level Entertainment Area

Welcome to Alta Vista, a newly constructed beach house in the popular Pirates Beach neighborhood. This house is brand new and has high quality furnishings throughout. From appliances to mattresses, everything is top of the line. Bring your toothbrush and flip flops. This house is well stocked with the items that we appreciate when we rent a house.

Walk in the front door to an open dining, living and kitchen area that boasts a gorgeous handcrafted table with seating for 10. A large bar seats an additional 6 guests. The oversized sectional and super comfy swivel rockers beckon you to lounge the day away with the perfect beach read. Better yet, turn on a movie for the kids at night while you enjoy a beverage on the spacious front deck.

This house is the perfect getaway for extended families with 2 King bedrooms with private baths, one Queen bedroom and a bunk room that sleeps 5. Looking for a little extra sleeping space? No worries! Two built in bunk beds in the upstairs hallway will provide a great supplemental space for guests. All of the kids will be fighting over who gets to sleep here!

The upstairs master bedroom has a fabulous shaded deck with Gulf's the perfect spot for a quiet cup of coffee. Dual vanities, a gorgeous stand alone tub and glass enclosed shower make this master bathroom an oasis you won't want to leave.

A leisurely 4 minute walk will take you to the beach (only 1100 feet away). Rather drive the kids and gear? A 2015 EZ- GO gas 3 row golf cart is available for an additional rental fee. When you return from the beach, head to the outdoor shower for a quick rinse.

The ground level entertainment area is primed for fun with an outdoor bar, gas grill and 55" TV. A refrigerator/freezer is available to use in the garage. A basketball goal, washer pit and other yard games are sure to be enjoyed by all. For beach fun we have a 10x10 pop up shade tent, volleyball net, beach wagon, boogie boards and ice chest with wheels.

Technology is not lacking in this house! There are TV's in every bedroom with Netflix. Fast and free internet. Sonos music system with speakers throughout house and outdoor area.

Our week here far surpassed my expectations! The house was beautiful, clean, and well stocked. The golf cart made beach trips easy and fun, and everything was amazingly turnkey. I highly recommend this home!

Better than expected, Lynn has thought of everything!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many VRBO’s/airBnB properties. This home was the most well equipped/stocked home of them all. Every paper good, kitchen supplies, toys, beach supplies you could possibly need! Home is beautifully furnished, 3 short blocks to the beach and set back down a long drive which makes it safer for little ones with a grassy lawn for playing. Rent the golf cart, so fun! Lynn is flexible and easy to work with, I highly recommend this rental.

Best House, EVER!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Pirate's Beach for many years for our family vacation, and this house was the best house we have ever rented. It was perfect! Great layout for large families--two master suites (one down, one upstairs, beds are super comfortable, plenty of towels, and a kitchen that is well-stocked. This house is only three years old, so it has all of the "whistle and bells" that a family enjoys.

The owners provide beach toys, chairs, cooler, and a canopy, so all you need to do is get to Galveston and start enjoying the beach. There's a refrigerator in the garage, which provided additional space for drinks and made it easy to pack for the beach each day.

We always have a wonderful week in Galveston, but this summer was especially nice because the house was so comfortable.

Thanks to Lynn and her family for creating a true "home away from home!"

We will be back!!!

Best place in Pirate’s Beach

  • 5 of 5

We just finished our second stay at Alta Vista, this time for 7 days. Both stays have been great experiences, and Alta Vista has become our go-to beach house rental when we visit Galveston. The house has everything you could need and is very homey and comfortable. The owners are very accommodating and allow early check-in and late check-out when possible. Great location and very close to the beach. We will definitely be back.
