The Swashbuckler 4214 Swashbuckle, Galveston, TX 77554

Plan a vacation just steps away from the Gulf Coast beach in Galveston, TX. This gorgeous family home provides plenty of room for your whole crew, including one small dog.

This getaway is located on the west end of Galveston Island about 12 miles away from historic downtown Galveston. With a perfectly situated location just steps away from the beach, you'll have swimming, water sports, fishing, and more right outside your door.

Upon entering this lovely home, you will feel welcomed into its open, airy living space. Tropical shades of blue and island-inspired rattan furniture create an inviting coastal feel, while large windows emphasize the outdoor space and views beyond.

There's plenty of space in the living area for everyone to relax after a fun day at the beach. In the corner is a small table with four chairs for casual dining, doing puzzles, or playing games, while over in the formal dining area there is a table that can seat up to eight of you and your guests. The fully equipped kitchen is open to the living and dining areas, which makes prepping dinner and entertaining a breeze. A dishwasher makes clean-up easy, too!

Several doors lead out onto the truly expansive deck that wraps around most of the home. On the main deck you can choose to read your book in the shade or opt to be in the sun taking in the rays. And, of course, there is the option to have that lazy lunch there, just steps away from your chaise lounge.

The house borders Galveston State Park so that there is an uninterrupted view of the Gulf beyond the park, as well as views of the beach from every room in the house!

When the nights get chilly, light a fire in the wood-burning fireplace and watch a movie on cable, the DVD player, or streamed over your Netflix account. There's also complimentary WiFi so you can post your latest vacation photos.

With four bedrooms and four bathrooms, this gorgeous coastal home will accommodate up to 10 guests (8 adults maximum). You can invite one furry canine friend up to 20 pounds to join you for a small additional fee. The two bedrooms upstairs each feature a queen-size bed, while the two downstairs bedrooms each have two twin-size beds. All of the bedrooms offer island-inspired decor, great natural light, and sliding glass doors out to each of their welcoming decks.

Each bathroom features a fun color scheme with a tropical feel. This home has a laundry room with a washer/dryer so you can keep up with those sandy beach clothes. There's an outdoor shower for rinsing off all of that beach sand and saltwater and a sink for cleaning your catch! Fire up the downstairs gas grill to prepare that fish, or whatever strikes your fancy!

Central A/C will keep the place cool and dry in the hot summer months and central heat, along with two fireplaces, will keep you warm and toasty in the cooler months. There are even baseboard heaters in each bathroom to take the chill off!

Have that first cup of coffee on the deck outside your bedroom before heading out to the beach for some fun in the sun. The entrance to Galveston Island State Park is about one mile away. It is great for beach combing, fishing, or birdwatching. Also close by, the Mary Moody Northern Amphitheater offers fun summertime evening musicals. Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark offers both indoor and outdoor attractions that will keep the kids busy all day long.

Closer to downtown Galveston, Moody Gardens offers several attractions, including an IMAX theater, their rainforest exhibit, and an aquarium. Don’t forget to make plans to visit the Pleasure Pier at some point during your Galveston stay. The Strand in downtown Galveston is just about 12 miles away where you’ll find plenty of good restaurants, art galleries, and shops. And, of course, you may want to make time to visit the fabulous historic homes that Galveston is famous for. The list just goes on and on.

With a prime location just about an hour outside of Houston, TX, this Galveston rental is the perfect place to enjoy an unforgettable vacation. Book your stay at this beautiful vacation home near the beach today and experience the Texas Gulf Coast!

    We had an awesome experience! We cooked all of our meals at home and this was truly the best equipped kitchen! The weather wasn't great but the house was fantastic so it didn't matter! The owners left a book with instructions and recommendations that were so great!

    Great house for having folks to gather for fellowship. View of the ocean from the back deck was wonderful - saw the dolphins one day playing in the surf. Great layout for groups and friends. All the bedrooms were nicely sized. Wish there had been TVs in the other bedrooms - only the master bedroom has a TV. All bedrooms have a deck which is so nice. Coffee can be sipped out on each deck and views of the ocean are available from there. The kitchen is wonderfully equipped!!!!! It would be nice to have the living room furniture updated - the wicker furniture was not comfortable. All in all, a great place to rent and Galveston is so nice. Lots of good restaurants and shopping.

    Great house for family gatherings! Every bedroom has it's own bathroom. Awesome views from all decks. You can even hear the ocean in the room at night. Easy walk to the beach. Loved it! We will be back.

    We enjoyed our stay at The Swashbuckler. The home was large, spacious, and very clean. It was also very well supplied and decorated.
    The view of the gulf was fantastic and the large deck made it very comfortable for family to sit, lounge, and have a good time.
    I highly recommend The Swashbuckler.

    This house is extremely nice and well maintained. Easy (electronic) process. Floor plan was great for two families. We have the top floor and the other family had the main floor. This was a great find. We intend to come back next year.
