Galveston White House (Beach Front)

Galveston White House (Beach Front)

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 9, 2014
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 10 Sleeps

We are not near the beach, we are ON the beach. Don't rent a dated beach house many miles away from everything wonderful Galveston has to offer. This beach house is located close enough to town yet far enough to enjoy the peacefulness of the ocean. It has what an executive and her/his family needs to enjoy everything the beach and Galveston has to offer without being stuck in the boonies.

Want to share the rental with another family? No worries... This house is perfect! You will not be fighting over who gets the best master bedroom. There are two master suites! The beds are to die for, the sitting areas spectacular, and the view... like no other.

Don't like the sand? No worries... Send your kids to the beach while you sit on the deck drinking margaritas and viewing them from your throne. There are six lifeguard chairs and the beach is, literally, steps away. Yes, there is a custom made cover for the deck (that is what the poles on the deck are for).

Like to BBQ? No worries... Don't share a grill with a bunch of strangers. Grill from the privacy of your own deck with amazing views of the ocean.

Are there any "hot house flowers" in the group? No worries... They won't miss a thing from inside the cool air conditioned house. They will still be able to see and be part of everything from the location of this house.

Like to fish? No worries... many... many... many... many... many... fish have been caught just steps away from this house! Who needs a pier?

Love the sound of the ocean? No worries... Open the huge sliding glass doors and the ocean comes to you. We designed this house to take FULL advantage of beachfront ocean living. You will know exactly what we mean when you rent this house!

Are you celebrating something special? No worries... Many weddings, holidays, birthdays, and anniversaries have been celebrated here. This house can become a very romantic getaway for just the two of you. Invite friends/family after you have had a chance to walk hand and hand on the beach, see an amazing sunrise from the master bedrooms, and well... we'll leave the rest up to you. Enjoy!

In love with the White House!!!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I have rented many vacation homes and normally we don't take the time to write a review however, we had such a wonderful week at the White House that I could not resist. The house is beautifully decorated giving it a fresh, light and airy feeling. It is so NOT your typical stuffy dark beach house with wood paneling and cheap furniture. The walls of windows allow for amazing views from almost every part of the house. Even while inside preparing food in the kitchen or lounging in bed or on the couch I only had to look up to enjoy the beautiful beach views. I was a bit intimated by the white couches and decor but what a pleasure it ended up being. And can I say again how nice it was to have real furniture and flimsy wicker stuff! The house is pleasing to the eye and very beach friendly - we had no issues with kids and messes and all was very easy cleanup. When we arrived the house was very clean and impressively stocked with everything you might need in the kitchen, barbecue grills, wonderful beach chairs and what a pleasure it was to rent a beach house that provides great beach towels! The washer and dryer was super appreciated – nobody likes to do laundry while on vacation but having fresh clean towels made the difference between being at the beach – to being on vacation at the beach! The outside shower was super handy and having two bathrooms (one up and one down) was a life saver! After a long day of playing I have to say that my favorite feature is the immensely comfortable beds - no expense was spared as the mattresses and the linens were amazing. This is a beach house were my family and I felt at home, had fun, relaxed, played and had wonderful night’s sleep. Thank you so much and we will be back!

weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5
Fantastic, beach front property with everything you need. I have stayed at this property multiple times and it is always spotless. The ocean is only steps away. Cars are not allowed to drive on the beach. You can't get a better view. This house has very nice chairs on the upstairs patio that allow you to see over the railing for an unobstructed view. Floor to ceiling windows/sliding doors allow for ocean view even when inside the house. All modern appliances including a full size washer and dryer. It is pet friendly and includes a small fenced area. The outside shower downstairs is perfect for rinsing off after a trip to the beach. Close proximity to all the main attractions in Galveston.

Family friendly home, ages toddler-seniors

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed in the Galveston White House, we found it relaxing and very clean. I stayed in the downstairs with my senior aged parents, we had no issues with the house. The house was very well stocked with a full kitchen, 2 small but very nice bathrooms (1 is on ground floor) and comfortable beds. The second upstairs bedroom is small more for children than adults but very comfortable.

It was nice that it had the room on the ground floor as my Dad couldn't climb stairs, the family could still enjoy time with him and he felt comfortable with bedroom, bathroom downstairs. We enjoyed the beach right across the street, nice big deck on second floor, we had a quite peaceful vacation. Enjoyed walking on the beach and fishing close by. Close to Seawall and Moody Gardens. Restaurants and Grocery store a short car drive away.

Our only issue was the parking was tight as we all had large cars and trucks, there is no parking on the road, you will be towed. 4 large vehicles will not fit on the driveway at this house. Just know you are limited on parking space if you all drive larger vehicles as we do. And the downstairs area did not have very good lighting at night, it made the steps harder to navigate for my Mom, we made it work with flashlights. Our family had members ages 5 months old to 75 years old staying together and pets, it was very comfortable for everyone.

Has a Mold Problem

  • 3 of 5
We recently stayed at the White House. The main house is just lovely but the downstairs has a very serious mold problem and is not habitable. This property is really best rented as a wonderful 2 bedroom. If you are in need of a 3rd bedroom you may want to consider another option.

Owner's Response: It is unfortunate when a renter attempts to spread false and inaccurate information about a beautiful home. There is no mold in the house. The renters and their many many guests used the entire home without complaint for the entire stay.

The beautiful downstairs master suite referenced sleeps 4 and is a wonderful place to relax or read a book whilst overlooking the ocean steps away.

The bed is incredibly comfortable, the linen rich and the view superb.

I hope you will take into consideration the other reviews and the many opinions of returning guests choosing this home year after year for their weekend getaways and vacations.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.

Notes:

  • Wireless internet access (even while sitting on the beach), unlimited US long distance, unlimited hot water, outdoor hot/cold shower, gate to keep the kids on the deck and not up and down the stairs. Just in case... dishwasher, washer and dryer, multiple blenders, and even a kitchen aid mixer. HUGE lifeguard chairs... Fair warning: many houses have decks where the chairs on the deck sit so low you cannot see an unobstructed view of the ocean. Just because... okay so the house is white... no worries... we have owned white beach houses for many years and have rarely had a problem. We even provide comfortable throws for the "Nervous Nancy" in the group.
