Slip away from the hustle and bustle while you explore the shores of Galveston. This is the beach community sits close to town - it's only a block or so from the Seawall. Just seven miles from the historic Galveston Pleasure Pier, and five blocks from eateries, this rental puts you right in the heart of the action on the island.

Redesigned in 2014 by an award-winning designer, the decor lets beach-side ambiance flow through the home, bringing the coast to you.

Kick the sand off your feet as you make your way up to the stilted entrance of your home away from home. An open and spacious layout allows for all of your guests to spread out in the sprawling interior.

The bright and airy living room has high vaulted ceilings, towering picture windows, and an unobstructed view of gently crashing waves. Plenty of seating makes it easy to enjoy a family movie night on the flatscreen HDTV. Whether you're watching a DVD or staying up to date on your favorite show via cable, there's plenty of room to curl up and enjoy.

Take advantage of the fast WiFi by looking up a recipe to try in the upgraded kitchen. With ample counter space and a sit-at bar, your culinary assistants will be able to sip a glass of wine while they help you create your delicious dish. There's an additional cabinet top ice maker that can make up to 25 pounds of ice a day! Stepping out of the living room and onto the expansive deck, you'll be greeted by all-encompassing water views that span the Galveston coast. Grill up a tasty BBQ dish on your stainless steel gas grill as you watch the stars come out over the Gulf Coast.

Sleeping up to 10 vacationers (with a maximum of eight adults) and two canine companions up to 40 pounds with a fee, this luxurious home has everything you're looking for to enjoy a care-free, stress-free stay. When you're ready to retire, four bedrooms - each with its own unique layout and sleeping options - await.

The master bedroom boasts a relaxing queen-size bed, access to the lower deck, and tons of storage space. In the second bedroom two twin-size beds make the room cozy, and convenient. The third bedroom has two sets of twin bunk beds, allowing four people to stay in the room, while still having enough space to spread out. The fourth room has another queen-size bed. For more sleeping options, a sofabed are available.

The warm sands of the Texas coast beckon you to come play. Rent a jet ski, or book a spot on a local fishing tour to delve into the Gulf Coast and quench your thirst for excitement. Schlitterbahn Water Park has everything you need to give your younger vacationers a unique and fun experience while staying safe in the water.

When hunger starts to take center stage, take you group over to Cafe Michael Burger. Just five blocks from your front door, Cafe Michael Burger has tasty American fare and something to please everyone's palate. If you're looking for a seaside bar to quench a more adult thirst, head to Woody's Beachside Bar. Four blocks from your rental, you'll be able to indulge in some Galveston specialty cocktails.

    This was a great spot for our girls' weekend! The home itself was even better than the pictures and even closer to the beach than it seemed in the pictures!

    10 close friends rented the home for the weekend. It is a wonderful location, close to all the amenities and excitement that Galveston has to offer and right on the beach. The house had everything we could need for the weekend and was well decorated and maintained. Very satisfied!

    Came down for the first weekend of spring break. Great home for a weekend getaway. Great location for a family not wanting to be to far away from all the action but wanting some privacy to enjoy some quality family time.

    Never really sure when you book someplace on-line but this home was a great find. We had a total of 8 adults and 3 children and home suited our needs well. First lets talk about location. It is right on 8 mile beach in Glaveston and though not private is blocked from vehicle traffic except patrol and maintenance. So set up your canopies and not having to worry about children and vehicles was a relief. Oh and this house is on beach, walk out door and over dune and there you are. Now for house, did not have any issues with mosquitoes, parking is great, held 2 large pick-ups, 1 SUV and 1 car with plenty of spare room. Downstairs is enclosed trash area, locked door into storage space, which even though list said surf board and boogie board, did not see those but plenty of toys, along with the gas grill, chairs and numerous other stuff. On one side is the shower with hot and cold water and on outside is the foot shower. Do be careful going barefoot in grass there are some grass burrs and fire ants. There is a stairway in front and one in the back to the deck that spans the whole back. There is a table along with chairs on the back deck. One door leads into the living/dining area and 2 doors at each end into queen rooms, one being the master. Only 2 baths which we worked around, another 1/2 bath would have been nice with as many as we had. Living area is huge and bar at kitchen we really never seemed crowded. Believe me when I say you don't need to bring anything for the kitchen except food. It was stocked with every gizmo you can think of, pots, pans, dishes, utensil's, appliances, and even a junk drawer. Bathrooms have toilet tissue but nothing beats charmin and small soap and a couple small bottles of shampoo are provided. Towels are plentiful and this home has a washer/dryer combo which is nice. They do advise not to use dryer sheets due to fire issues. Wi-fi is provided but for some reason all phones and tablets would connect but not open also printer on desk had broken plug-in prong, we didn't need it, more of a safety issue. Overall we had a wonderful time and will stay here in the future and will highly recommend to anyone wanting to stay in Galveston.

    I surprised my lovely wife with a short 3-night stay here with immediate family members (kids and grand-kids). The location is superb for us, close to home and the seawall but still far enough away from the crowds. The house is perfect for our group size. Updates and furnishings are nice and modern. The beach is small and messy with gulf debris but it is so nice to enjoy from the porch.

    This surprise won me many "brownie points" Thanks.

    On the beach on Galveston, there are two types of properties for rent. Nicer, quality ones that you are happy paying more for to get something like you would be happy to live in full time; and then there are ones that are probably being held strictly for the income, with less regard for maintenance and repair of items that invariably start going downhill with rentals.
    When you see so many things that are obviously being ignored by the rental company and the owner, you understand that you've rented one of the latter types.
    This property falls into that last description. I feel like it was rented frequently this season by parties (maybe literally) that don't care about how a place looks and is maintained.
    That said, if you're looking for a beach party house that a dozen young adults might share rental fees for a party place, you will only be unhappy that it is priced like a better rental should be.

    There were a couple of issues with the house, but over all we had a great time! Beautiful house with great views!! At the end of the street. the beach access was very very close, loved it. No vehicles are allowed on this stretch of the beach, so seemed like it was our own private beach! Loved it and would come back!

    We couldn't have asked for a better location. Steps from the beach, with a large deck and lots of windows. However, watch out if you have very young children. I spent half of our first day finding places to stash all the breakable knick-knacks. :)

    This beach house had everything you could ask for and more. It was well supplied, esp in the kitchen. The beds were good, linens were ample, there was all sorts of things to play with in the storage room, good grill and washer/dryer, and the best part was the beach location is perfect!!! The only thing that would have made it better would have been an ice maker and better weather. I highly recommend "Happy in Margaritaville."
