"Need a break from the bustling city and day to day? Head to Galveston. Galveston is still the sleepy, yet fully appointed up to date seaside town with long miles of clean beaches and plenty of room to spread out. Great food, slow moving pace and sea breezes everywhere. There are a ton of rentals in Galveston and it can be a frustrating experience to get the one that fits all your needs without compromising one thing for another; on beach but no real AC, off beach no view - have to be a Sherpa to get all the gear to the beach daily, no dogs, no kids, nice view but beds that would make the Spanish inquisition proud, Large TV but only one channel, no TV but a beat up scrabble board provided etc etc. Well we have found the perfect combo of a beach house and restful and comfortable home to stay in Galveston.
Dolphin Daze is the best combination of them all. Built in the style of a Destin Beach home it is well appointed, comfortable and in a perfect spot for the beach. Located well down the seawall toward San Luis pass it sits about 100 yards from the sea on a very quiet , very clean and wide stretch of the beach. Its nice that it is a bit removed from the clutter of the sea wall in Galveston Proper but it is very easy to get to town and all the great food in a short straight drive that takes about 15 minutes. The house has a great room with open kitchen and tremendous full length windows that brings in the Sunny Days . There are two main rooms each with their own showers and bathrooms and private balcony both with very comfortable beds, full washer and dryer which is a must and then a really neat lookout tower with bunks for the kids on a third level to keep the nose and loud ( hopefully laughter of the kids) at arms length if you need that. All of the house is tiled or wooden floors which makes for a very clean and sharp finish and easy to sweep the sand out. The interior of the house is decorated more like a top notch hotel/resort than a beach house so much that my wife kept running around cleaning it as we went. It is very comfortable with beautiful leather couch and chairs. Nice sized wall mounted TV for those Dads that need their news or sport fix and plenty of satellite channels for the kids. Plenty of board games and beach stuff.
GREAT UPSCALE BEACH HOUSE TO STAY. WE HAVE NOW STAYED THERE TWO YEARS IN A ROW and would love to return. Great place to reconnect with families and your soul. Highly Recommended"
