About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bath, 1600 sq. ft., Covered Deck with Great Beach View! Sleeps 8.

Built in 2009, this fabulous beach house provides everything you need for a relaxing beach vacation. Beautifully furnished by the meticulous owner, the house is located on the 4th row in family-friendly Emerald 1 Addition. Enjoy the great view from the covered deck while relaxing in the over-sized deck chairs, or cool off in the air-conditioned giant living area with comfortable seating while watching the flat-screen television on DirecTV. Downstairs, swing in the new cedar swing, cook your favorite meal on the new charcoal grill, and dine on one of the two built-in picnic tables. Rinse off in the outdoor shower before heading upstairs to sleep on one of the four comfortable beds. Garage reserved for owner. No Smoking Indoors, Please, And A Maximum Of Eight Persons!

It's just a short walk to the beach or drive your vehicle on the beach - not many places left where you can do that! Rent a golf cart from one of the local vendors for driving on the beach or in the neighborhood. So convenient! Get unlimited beach parking with the purchase of a parking permit. Cook a meal for your family in the fully-equipped kitchen or take them out to a local restaurant. The smaller kids will love the water slide just down the highway, Drive into Galveston one day for shopping at the Strand, playing in the water at Schlitterbahn, or sight-seeing at Moody Gardens. Visit the brand new Pleasure Pier amusement park on the Galveston seawall and ride the roller coaster, carousel, ferris wheel or one of the other exciting rides. The kids will love feeding the seagulls from the back of the Free ferry across Galveston Bay or watch for the dolphins as they race alongside the boat. So much to do or just do nothing at all - your choice!

This house is my ideal beach house. The owners are so gracious to open it to renters and is was very much appreciated by our family. I loved sitting on the porch and being able to see the beach and water. The beds are very comfortable and the house is so homey. We didn't feel like we were in a rental home. Close to beach and easy to get to. Our only problem was that our weekend stay was toooo short. Hope to see you again next year. The Williams family

Enjoy 27 miles of unspoiled beach, just a few steps from the front door of this brand new house. Rent a golf cart or drive your personal vehicle along the water's edge. Unlimited parking on the beach with the purchase of a parking permit. Relax on the covered deck or enjoy a round of golf at the 9-hole course. Cook your favorite meal in the fully-equipped kitchen or visit one of the local restaurants. Take the free ferry over to Galveston Island for a day of shopping at the Strand, cooling off at Schlitterbahn, or sightseeing at Moody Gardens. Stay through the evening for the island nightlife. Don't worry - it's just a short drive back to your comfortable cabin, located in a family-friendly neighborhood. Be sure to check out the Pleasure Pier on the seawall in Galveston. Recently constructed, the pier has amusement rides, carnival games and a new restaurant. Now open!
