About the property

Recently remodeled 4/2.5 two story home with a new pool and enclosed parking!

Our home is a 4 bedroom 2.5 bath, 2 story, sleeps 14 in beds. All bedrooms are upstairs with 1 Master King Bedroom with a balcony, 1 Master Queen Bedroom, 1 Bedroom with 2 Queen Beds, and 1 Bedroom with a Queen Bunk bed and a Queen trundle bed. Spacious rooms, spacious lot, lots of parking, large decking, gated, SWIMMING POOL and fully equipped with all the essential amenities for a home away from home! We have provided everything possible to accommodate large parties who want to cook and entertain at home. Our completely gated backyard has an alley entrance with an automated gate that provides 4-5 parking spots on our property. We also have 2 additional parking spots in the front of the house as well as parking on the street. We are 2 blocks to the seawall, Murdocks, Pleasure pier, restaurants, activities, and only a few miles to The Strand. The Galveston Trolley Tracks are right in front of our home and the Trolley is reopening in 2017! This will provide great transportation to and from the Strand.

The City of Galveston is constantly working to promote the island and providing a safe family/friendly environment for all our guests to experience. Please visit Galveston.com to see a calendar of all the upcoming events.

We want all of our guests to enjoy our fabulous non-heated swimming pool, however, please understand that the owners take no responsibility in or around the swimming pool.

There are security cameras on the front door, viewing the swimming pool area, and the back parking area. ALSO, on the 2 back doors in the dining room, there are alarms that are VERY LOUD! The City of Galveston REQUIRES us to have them for our swimming pool. They are for your safety as well as ours, therefore, PLEASE do NOT tamper with them. We truly thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Our property is completely fenced with an electronic gate. We provide a gate opener to all of our guests. Please feel free to put this in your car as you are coming and going from our property. HOWEVER.....the gate is VERY heavy and VERY slow, so PLEASE make sure the gate completely closes before you leave our property or go into the house. Again, thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Perfect place for the situation.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I celebrated 20th anniversary with close family and friends. I search a ton on properties before choosing this home. The house was beautiful and charming. The space was abundant and the swimming pool was a nice added touch. I don't normal give reviews, but this house and the land owners so deserve high 5s. I will be looking to reserve this space in the future.

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for our daughters first birthday and it went above and beyond all our expectations! The house is so cute and well decorated. The setup was nice with the rooms upstairs and entertaining downstairs. Everything was provided from trashbags to linens. I wish I could give this rental 10 stars!!

Plenty of room for all and space to spread out if you need a break from togetherness. Anything we may have needed was there.

The house is beautiful! Has everything you could possibly need & more. I have 3 younger kids & they had so much fun at the house. They loved the bunk beds, stairs , and of course the pool! The homeowners are great as well! Will be booking again next year.

Great home!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house with a great pool and everything our families needed for a nice getaway. Huge dining table and well stocked kitchen let us all dine together which we enjoyed.

Spacious downstairs with plenty bedrooms to accommodate our needs. We enjoyed the deck and pool each day. Good location close to the sea wall and a very short drive to the Strand.

We had one minor issue with the fans and lights and the manager was extremely responsive and sent someone to fix it immediately. Very nice stay!
