Styled with a calm beach ambiance, you'll be greeted by miniature sailboats, ocean-themed art, and plenty of space for your group to spread out and unwind. While the central A/C beats back the Texas heat you can surf the cable channels or watch a DVD from the provided library. Make a light breakfast and listen to the waves crash in the distance as you sip your morning cup of coffee on the balcony.

What's nearby:

Located just two blocks from Texas' Gulf shores, this home gives you the chance to unwind in the peace of the beach scene while being a scenic 20-mile drive from the heart of Galveston and its many attractions. Get your crew together for a day of fun in the sun at the Schlitterbahn Waterpark, just 17 miles away, and don't forget the sunscreen! Fly down the water slides, enjoy a floating session in the lazy river, and grab a refreshing drink while you work on your tan.

Beautiful spot, well maintained in a quite neighborhood. We will be back here. Everything you need for a beach get away. House is well stocked and clean. Check in and out was simple. quick access to the beach with an out door shower and a fenced yard for the dog. Thanks for sharing it all with us.

A nice, quiet setting, well away from the noise of the Galveston seawall area. Especially enjoyed sitting on the deck in the afternoon enjoying the sea breeze.
William B. May 2019
We loved the space. Our dogs had the best time ejoying the yard, and sun bathing on the decks. Perfect spot for ppl with dogs.
Erica L. Apr 2019
We truly enjoyed our stay, the view was amazing and we were weren't far from all the attractions. It truly felt like a home away from home. We enjoyed a beautiful sunset while sitting on the deck and spent a lot of time cooking in the amazing kitchen we loved our stay.
Katie W. Jan 2019
This place was perfect for our small family, including those with four paws! The living/kitchen area is open and ideal for cooking and spending time with loved ones. Short walk to the beach. We would stay here again!

Close to beach and very quiet
Adrianna F. Jul 2018
This house was a quaint and perfectly sized house for our small family! You can’t beat the sunset views and the open living/kitchen space was perfect with our baby! We also loved the fenced yard with our dogs! Great experience! :)
George M. Jul 2018
We loved this house and enjoyed our stay thoroughly!
Natalie C. Jul 2018
Nice house, great location. The west side is definitely more to our taste than the east side. Less crowds on the beaches. We could always find a wide open space on the beach close to our parking lot.

House is a little older, but has interesting history pictured around the living room. There was a picture book from 2014 detailing someone’s road trip that was fun to flip through.

It was a nice time and a nice place.
Judy K. May 2018
Loved the fenced in yard and wonderful under house porch area. Always a nice breeze.
DONNA C. May 2018
We loved all the conveniences of this home! Was also very well kept. However, we were so busy doing the "tourist" thing, we really didn't spend much time there!
Michael L. Apr 2018
Great location and perfect amenities for a long weekend at the beach.
Scott H. Mar 2018
This house was perfect for my family. We have a 7 year and she loved everything from the cool mermaid statue to the fenced yard she could run around in. We also took our other 4 legged kiddo and it was perfect for her. The house was inviting and very spacious. We loved sitting outside in the morning with our coffee and in the evening and watching the sunset. We loved this house and will definitely be back. Thank you for a great experience!

This property gave us exactly what we were looking for. A quiet spot, with plenty of outdoor space, both for us and the dog.
The 5 minute walk to the beach was great and we spent most of our time walking or reading on the veranda.
Jacob S. Nov 2017
It was a great vacation
Victoria D. Nov 2017
We had a very relaxing time and being able to bring our fur babies along made a big difference. Having the fenced yard for them and they loved the yard. I would definitely rent this place again.
Aimee B. Aug 2017
We really enjoyed the Golden Retreat II! It was a perfect summer get away for us and our pup! Clean, cozy and convenient! We certainly will look to come back for our next beach vacation!
Anna G. Aug 2017
We enjoyed our stay here. It was relaxing. The neighborhood is a friendly place. Everyone we encountered was very nice. Lots of nice views. We rented a golf cart to get to and from the beach. I'm so glad that we did because it would have been a little bit of a walk. :-)
Lynn R. Jul 2017
The house worked well for my family (grandparents, daughter, grandchildren ages 8-21. Nice house. Great deck for morning coffee and evening wine.
Anh H. Jul 2017
We really enjoyed the house and the surrounding. Short distance to the beach. Cozy and very intimate for a small group of friends. I was afraid of the house being dirty but I was proved wrong. House was very kept up and very clean. I got a lot of compliment for choosing such a nice place to stay. Loved everything about it. Thank you.
Lara K. Jun 2017
Our family loved this property. It was so close to the beach! There were movies, games, and Internet for the kids while we enjoyed relaxing in the evening. We cooked some fabulous meals and had everything we needed to do so. Great place!
Lillian M. Jun 2017
This is by far the best rental I've ever stayed in, and I've rented MANY houses for vacations since we have a fur baby. The house is cozy and provides more than most rentals ever would. Sure there were some things that could you attention in reference to cleanliness, but I wipe everything down no matter where I stay, so not a big deal. The location is wonderful, so many beach accesses, loved the closed in yard since there is a fence - our pup had a wonderful time just relaxing with us - we felt secure for him specifically. The staff is friendly and respond ASAP, which is great and hard to come by with rentals. There are so many positives to this stay, it's hard to list them all, but I know I will be back to this specific house when visiting Galveston, TX beaches.
Tiffany B. Jun 2017
The Golden Retreat was perfect for our mini vacation! The house is gorgeous and plenty of spacious room! I definitely over packed the cooking needs! It has more than enough! Love the fenced in yard! The view of the bay and of the beach is perfect! Will definitely rent this place again!
