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 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. All guests are advised to use caution and be safe around the pool. NO RUNNING, PUSHING OR HORSE PLAY, NO DIVING (the pool is only 4 feet deep), NO UNSUPERVISED CHILDREN, NO GLASS CONTAINERS and the pool is for our guests ONLY. Guests will swim and use the pool and deck areas at their own risk. The owners will not be responsible for accidents or injuries. 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.

About Richard D - Property Manager

We are a family of 4 and love the beach! We love to fish, ride our bikes, and relax on the beach! We LOVE Galveston and all the amenities, the convenience, the history, the activities and attractions it has to offer. With only 1 hour from Houston, this is a great get away for a quick family vacation and an opportunity for making beautiful memories.

We LOVE the house, the lot size, and the location! This is a beautiful property and we saw GREAT potential for making this a "home away from home" vacation rental. We look forward to sharing our property and having everyone enjoy our home as much as we do!

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Walking distance from the beach, rode the trolley to downtown. The house is beautiful! The pool was fabulous. We were so comfortable with three couples and a preschooler, toddler and baby. The house is kid friendly. Great time!

It was perfect for our girls weekend!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property for a group of 12. We loved the house! It is completely updated and decorated beautifully. The beds were all comfortable. We really enjoyed the pool! The parking in the back was a plus. We were able to fit 5 cars back there so that only 2 vehicles had to park out front. It has a great location as well.

Beautiful and spacious home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Sunrise Oasis! We were in Galveston for my sister's wedding and this home was the perfect place for two families with kids to stay. The kids room with the triple bunk bed was perfect for 5 cousins to have a sleep over together. The home has been beautifully updated. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen is very well stocked. The location is great - close to the seawall and Pleasure Pier. My only note would be that we couldn't find the laundry pods/detergent on our last day to start the load of white towels which was requested of us as renters. Also, a couple more trash bags would have been handy. We loved our stay and would definitely stay here again.
