vacation rental description

'Sunset Nest' is known for its captivating 180 degree unobstructed views of the bay and the most breathtaking sunsets. Every evening you can gather your friends and family around the outdoor bar/entertainment area to enjoy the sunsets as a group or you can steal away to either of 2 balconies upstairs for a more intimate viewing.

We just bought this house in 2012 (we own 2 other vacation rental homes -- please check VRBO 104474 and 296255 to see feedback from our happy guests). We've enjoyed adding new furniture, appliances, dishes, linens and artwork, but have found the most stunning decoration to be the ever-changing water view out the windows -- visible from the main room and every bedroom!

There is a well-stocked kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances plus coffee-maker, toaster, blender, 2 sets of dishes, new set of high end pots and pans, and all necessary flatware and utensils.

Amenities include Wi-Fi and premium HDTV cable channels. The comfy living room has a 55' LCD TV with Blu-Ray home theater system There is a 30' flat screen TV in the master bedroom. Each of the 3 bedrooms has a queen size bed, and there is also a queen size sleeper in the living room and a full futon in the master bedroom suite.

Birders, fishing enthusiasts, beach combers, kayakers, and anyone who loves the richness of life along a saltwater marsh will love this house!

traveler reviews for this galveston house rental


Review submitted: July 9, 2014   Date of arrival: July 2, 2014

Talk about relaxing!! We found everything we needed here to make our weekend away fun and with all the comforts of home. Awesome patios to gather on and enjoy the weather. Beautiful sunsets, and lots of birds with the bay view. We can't wait to go back real soon!

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, pet-friendly

I know this sounds cliche...but...the pictures do not do it justice. My family stayed here for a long weekend and it was absolutely perfect. The location is quite convenient because it allows you to run around and enjoy all of the sites during the day and retreat back to the calm, peaceful serenity of the house. An added bonus is that the neighbors in the community were so nice and friendly. This is definitely something that we'll try to do every year!

We love Sunset Nest

Review submitted: March 16, 2014   Date of arrival: March 12, 2014

This property is very well maintained. The house is clean and charming. The location is absolutely perfect - it is right at the end of the street with unobstructed views of the marsh. We enjoyed sitting on the patio and watching the birds and the gorgeous sunsets. We enjoyed walking our dog through the pretty neighborhood. There is a great local restaurant, Michael's Burgers, with really good food and a German flair. Jamaica Beach is a lovely little city.

This property is close to Galveston Island State Park, so it was easy to enjoy a morning of birding there. We also drove into Galveston to enjoy the Strand and eating out. Joe's Crab Shack has some great food. The bucket of crab legs, and the crab cake Caesar salad were great!

This home was a pleasure!! The description was accurate. The owners were very pleasant and communicated all the necessary information. I would definitely recommend it to a friend.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, pet-friendly, sight seeing, romantic getaway
