Your Oasis on the Beach

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

Come to our Oasis and enjoy wonderful ocean views from our large, comfortable deck. Begin your morning watching the sunrise over the Gulf while enjoying that first cup of coffee. Step outside and enjoy a stroll along the beach. We have a third bedroom that opens to a deck where you can view the sunset.

The 'off season' is a great time to visit Galveston Island. Experience Fall, Winter and Spring and share what the locals already know; a relaxed pace, no traffic, no waiting lines and moderate temperatures. October brings the Galveston West End Market, the Market on the Strand, Music Night on the Strand, Oktoberfest and the Annual Greek Fest plus more. Find an activity that speaks to you or just relax and enjoy the sea. Make you plans now to visit Galveston Island and Oasis on the Beach. There are so many things to do that it is impossible to list everything.

We can easily accommodate up to ten people. The master bedroom has a king-size bed and after a great night's sleep, you awake to a spectacular view of the Gulf from the adjoining sunroom.

The second bedroom also has a queen bed. The third bedroom has two twin beds and opens to a large sun deck adjacent to the bedroom. Plus, there are two queen-size sleeper sofas so we can comfortably accommodate your family.

The kitchen is equipped with everything you need to cook a big feast.

You are just steps from the beach. The lower level has an outdoor shower so you can rinse off when you come back from the beach. There is a big built in picnic table on the ground level. For the days when you don't want to spend time at the beach but want to cool off, you have the use of the Sea Isle pool for the length of your stay. Come and experience everything Galveston has to offer; there are activities to please all ages from the Schlitterbahn Water Park, Galveston Island Strand, the Pleasure Pier, Moody Gardens and the Historic District with its unique shops, superb restaurants, and art galleries.

About Kathy Oliver

Doug and I live in Atlanta. We love to travel and love the beach.

Kathy Oliver purchased this house in 2006

Why Kathy Oliver chose Gulf Coast

We love warm weather and love the beach. We visited Galveston with friends and found everyone to be so friendly and welcoming that we were just drawn in.

What makes this house unique

We love walking on the beach. Love waking up in the morning and enjoying breakfast while looking out at the Gulf and watching the sunset in the evening. It's fun to go into Galveston for lunch or dinner and walk along the Strand. One of our favorite things is to go to the wharf and buy fresh seafood from Katie's and cook it at home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an absolutely wonderful time. The weather was perfect and the kids spent tons of time on the beach. The house was great - you can bet that we will be back!

Great house for a family!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the CLEAN space in this home. 3 bedrooms, 2 FULL bathrooms, great kitchen and eating spaces. I enjoyed sitting on the deck watching the pelicans fly by.

Owners were very helpful before and during our stay, replying to emails daily when necessary.

Nate's West End Restaurant was convenient on Sunday night when everything else was closed by 7 p.m. My favorite "non-chain" restaurant was Jimmy's on the Pier.

We would definitely recommend this house to anyone going to Galveston who do not want to be in the middle of all the main attractions. Very peaceful.

Great Thanksgiving 2012

  • 5 of 5

The family (6 adults, 2 kids) had a wonderful time at your home for Thanksgiving week. Spent time fishing, walking the beach, dolphin watching, shopping the Strand, seeing the Christmas holiday lights at Moody Gardens, and just relaxing. Our favorite place was the sunroom. The view was perfect of the ocean and we spent many hours talking, laughing and sharing in this room. The home was clean, plenty of linens, and with a one minute walk to the beach, what else could you ask for? We took the liberty of re-naming our beach "Edstewvens Beach" for our 3 families. We all want to go back again!

Owner's Response: We are always happy when people enjoy their time at our home. We have recently upgraded several things in the furniture in the living room, new stove and dishwasher and a new air-conditioner for the sunroom. Hopefully, all this will add to our guests' enjoyment. Kathy

Great Neighborhood away from Crowded Tourist Spots, no Traffic!

  • 4 of 5

Great view even for a second row house- you are immediately on the beach. The way the deck and sunroom are positioned on the house allow for an unblocked view of the ocean. Worth mentioning: the sunroom on the deck is air-conditioned--an unexpected pleasure after being in the hot sun all day, makes for a cool spot to nap or read a book but you still feel that you are outside at the beach. Sea Isle is a fantastic neighborhood, they have a marina, pool, nice restaurant, store, private fishing pier, and a light menu bar&grill all within a short golf cart ride from this house. The bar&grill has a family atmosphere right on the marina, all ages, very nice local man spent time with my teen showing him how to play pool. Great house for the price and easy-going owners.

Owner's Response: One of our favorite places for lunch and dinner is the West End restaurant at the marina. The food is great and its fun to be right at the marina. The air-conditioned sunroom is my favorite spot also.

Oasis on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week in this house. The beach is literally outside the door. The house was open and spacious and was more than adequate for the 9 of us. The beds were comfortable and the house was neat and clean upon our arrival. The deck is awesome and had enough chairs for everyone. The owners were fantastic to work with and answered any/all questions I had in a timely manner. We will definitely consider staying here again in the future. Thanks again for a great stay!!
