Have a pure, private beach vacation at this 3BR, 2BA home (sleeps 10) on the south end of Galveston Island. Our custom home features giant windows and porches for stunning gulf views. Headed to the beach? Take the private boardwalk, and you'll be there in moments. INSIDE THE HOUSE The architect owner of this sweet seaside home designed it himself, so you’ll find thoughtful touches throughout. There’s ample parking underneath this stilt house, with room for 4 cars. On this lower level there’s also a picnic table, 2 charcoal grills. The SS cables in the deck's handrails dramatically open the view to the beach from anywhere in the house compared to the wooden pickets on most houses. We specifically built the living room wall with the high glass to again open up the views to the beach and water. Finally we recently completed the substantial dune walkover that is ramped on both ends and lit at night. It also goes further out across the dunes than any other walkover around. Inside the home has a clean, subdued-but-beachy feel; the color scheme is blue, tan and gray, with cooling tile floors. The living room greets you when you enter. Here the high vaulted ceiling (there’s a loft above) creates a sense of airiness. There’s seating for 7 around the 42” flat-screen TV, and a wall of windows facing the beach. To the left from the entrance is the dining table, where 6 can join for dinner surrounded by windows. The adjacent open, U-shaped kitchen has high-end finishes: stainless steel stove/oven, fridge and dishwasher, granite countertops, and blue-gray tiled backsplash. There’s seating for 2 at the breakfast bar. Down the hall past the kitchen are the guest bedrooms (which both have TV’s). The 3rd bedroom will sleep 4, with 2 twin-over-full bunk beds, while the 2nd bedroom offers more privacy and storage, with wicker furniture throughout and a queen-size bed. The shared bathroom has a granite vanity with ample counter space, a tub/shower combo. From the living room, you’ll find stairs into the loft master suite. On the landing you’ll find a little family game room, with a shelf full of books and games and a table. The futon here can fold out to sleep 2. The master suite features a king-size bed, 42” TV, extra seating, and a walk-in closet. You’ll love the sense of openness from the floor-to-ceiling windows - you can even head out onto a private deck, where 2 white rocking chairs overlook the gulf. The en-suite bathroom is built for 2, with a large stand-up shower and a double vanity.The beach is quiet and natural here on the southwestern end of Galveston Island. Beach grasses abound on the dunes and you’ll find no shops or restaurants lining the oceanfront (it’s all your own). The nearest restaurant, a seafood joint called the West End, sits about 4 miles away. Downtown Galveston is about a 35-minute drive away, and is known for historic homes and a charming old town market district. Bring the kids to Moody Gardens, where glass pyramids house wildlife and fun educational attractions, or to Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier for rides and games. Exciting days and calm nights with the Gulf of Mexico lapping at your door - you’ll not find a better beach vacation!
