Dog-friendly home with ocean views, peaceful location, and spacious shaded deck!

Sea breezes, rustling palms, and lazy days await at this delightful Galveston vacation home. Located just a few steps from the white sand and warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, this classic beach house boasts lovely views and a dog-friendly attitude, so you can bring along the whole family!

This vacation rental lies just southwest of Galveston proper, providing the perfect mix of quiet getaway and close proximity to the city's many restaurants and amusement parks. The beach lies just a stone's throw from your front door, making it easy to wander over for a game of frisbee or walk on the beach with your dog whenever you want. (A small nightly pet fee applies.) Then, delight the kids - and your inner kid! - with a day trip to Schlitterbahn Water Park (four miles) or the waterfront rides of Pleasure Pier (seven miles).

When you're all worn out, head back to this charming retreat to dry off and relax. A giant, shady mezzanine deck offers the perfect place to cool off while admiring the view of the Gulf. Upstairs, fix yourself a snack or homemade meal in the fully equipped kitchen, then kick back in the living room for a cozy night in! Watch a movie together on TV, catch up with friends back home with the free WiFi, or head over to the beach for a peaceful moonlight stroll.

With superb views, comfortable furnishings, and incredible access to the surf and sand, this beautiful home is the perfect choice for your next Galveston getaway. Book your reservation today!

It had a great view. We enjoyed the quite neighborhood. Everything was nice, the colors beach and even the detail to the penny tabletop.

Great view and short walk to beach! Cute house and comfy beds . Distance to seawall can't be beat for a private beach house !

Cute little house! It was the perfect 5 day beach house rental. The house is adequately furnished for relaxing and cooking and spending time on the beach. The open kitchen dining and living area are very accommodating. Ocean views from both decks are awesome and it’s just a short walk from the beach. We will definitely be back.

This was a nice two bedroom home with a short walk to the beach. There was a nice breeze on the porch that was very enjoyable, Could use a out door shower and good pots and pans. Nice yard with grass if you have kids, Everything you needed was provided. Pack light, lots of stairs.

We loved how close to the beach we were. The bed were very comfortable, the decks were great for just sitting or eating, the ocean breeze was wonderful! We will definitely be back!

The beach house is is nicely decorated, comfortable, and clean. It has everything you need for your stay. We really enjoyed the ocean view from both decks. You can hear the surf and feel the breeze. It only takes a minute to walk down to the beach and you're close enough to go back to the house easily for meals or whatever. Very near the seawall - you can actually walk or ride a bike to the seawall along the beach. But, far enough away that you have some quiet and privacy.
