Enjoy the view at this charming home w/multiple decks & new amenities- 2 dogs OK

Built in 2013, this towering Texas home is located on a beach access street and has bright living spaces, modern amenities throughout, multiple decks offering spectacular, 360-degree views, a large grassy yard, and room for up to 12 guests, making it ideal for a family reunion or holiday celebration.

Bordered by a natural, undeveloped area, there's absolutely nothing around you to obstruct your view from this home. Head about a third of a mile southeast and stroll out onto sandy Gulf Coast beaches for days of fun in the sun and surf. Hop onto State Highway 87 and drive down to the bottom of the Bolivar Peninsula, where you can take a ferry across the channel to visit historic Galveston for shopping, dining, museums, galleries, and so much more. And for those looking for some outdoor adventure, be sure to visit the Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge, just 40 miles away, for hiking, birdwatching, and fishing.

Back at the house, share updates, photos, and videos of your vacation with friends and family thanks to the free WiFi. Watch your favorite shows on the three cable TVs, or bring along a few DVDs and program your own movie nights. On the lower level, there are picnic tables and a grill if you want to have a family cookout. You'll also find a private outdoor shower here and a cozy hammock for those lazy afternoons. Up top, climb the spiral staircase that leads to the sundeck, where you can enjoy the view and catch a few rays.

The house has everything you need

Really Sweet. Bring bugspray though just in case. As long as there's a slight breeze there's no biters and the porch has great views. Stayed 3 nights, only one was buggy.

~5- 10 min walk from the beach depending on if you've got little kids with you

It was every thing I was expecting....and more! Thank you!

This house was perfect for our group of three families, including 6 kids. The main floor bedroom is big enough for a pack n play. The beach was a little bit too far to walk with the little kids and all the beach stuff, so we just loaded up the cars. We had the beach almost all to ourselves. The only negative thing I have to say about this beach house was that the mosquitos were so bad we weren’t able to utilize the great porch or picnic tables downstairs. Overall good experience!

Absolutely loved the house. It was well cared for and clean. The beds were comfortable. Loved it being at the beach but the neighbors were not on top of us. Gorgeous views! Plenty of room for a large family and still have privacy inside the home as well!

It was nice a quiet at th House. Walk to the beach is long unless you don’t bring items with you. The house had all it said it would but the floor was very dirty. Check out time could be later as well.

Beautiful home with much space. Close to the beach too.
Mary M. Jul 2018
The location was ideal, could see the bay from the deck, and within walking distance to the beach, but far enough away the kids would not go down on their own.
Most everything we needed was provided. We took advantage of the grill, and the wonderful chairs on the deck.
The beds were very comfortable! A little short on silverware, but managed to eat without any problem.

We had a group of 12, ages 4 months to 50 years, including a group of kids. There was plenty of space for everyone to hang out or find some privacy. The decks were wonderful and had great views of the natural area. The beach was a short walk down the road - close enough that a 3.5 year old did it on his own little legs.
Lisa B. Jun 2018
The house was spacious and had everything we needed. We will definitely be back!
Rosie G. Jun 2018
