vacation rental description

This villa is your perfect bungalow only steps from the Gulf waters, beach store shopping, restaurants, bars and still close to everything like; the Strand historical district, the Pleasure Pier, and Moody Gardens. If this house is booked, we have another Island home we can rent to you that may be available #477190 on VRBO. http://www.vrbo.com/477190#

In the off-season (late 2013 early 2014) this bungalow just had new coats of paint both inside and outside, new decking as well as stairs built for both front and back of the house, new beach-style flooring installed throughout the entire home and a brand new Ashley Furniture sleeper sofa set purchased for the living room. It's almost like a brand new home and ready for the 2014 Vacation Season!

This bungalow is decorated in a tropical theme with vibrant colors and never lets you forget how close you are to the beach. The back yard is filled with tropical plants and palms and a large 8 foot picnic table if you would like to eat outside during your stay. Use the grill on the small back deck for a cook-out or just enjoy the sea breezes from the front porch. Whatever you decide to do Blue Crab bungalow will make for an amazing stay on Galveston Island!

This house is close to 3 wonderful restaurants in Galveston. Mosquito Cafe (14th) Sunflower Cafe (14th) and Shy Katz (16th). You should check them out if you get a chance. It is also just over 1 block to Benno's on the Seawall for wonderful seafood!

I recommend you bring your bikes to the Island because anything you would want to do is all within cycling distance from the Blue Crab Bungalow!

There are so many fun things to do on Galveston that are all within steps to just a few miles away. Many great beaches, entertainment, shopping and miles of Gulf Coast beaches. Galveston’s festivals, special events and attractions are enjoyable for all! Check the Galveston Island website to see what's happening during your stay....there is at least one festival per month on the Island. Galveston has many enjoyable activities for single and family lives. Explore the the downtown Strand area and ride horse drawn carriages. Also don't forget to visit the Elissa (a historic sail boat from 1877) or the oil rig museum, both near the Strand on Pier 21. See a movie or enjoy many of Galveston's shops & art studios. You can rent bicycles (3 blocks from the house on 17th), scooters, golf carts & Segways to enjoy the Seawall during all parts of the day or just walk the beach, which is only a few steps across the way. The stretch of Seawall located just out from the house also offers Jet ski rentals in the Summer as well as chair and umbrella rental. But if you don't want to rents them, we provide 8 bag chairs at the Blue Crab bungalow, that you can bring to the beach or use for whatever you would like during your stay.

Many people also come to fish on one of Galveston's many piers (2 of which are just a couple blocks from the house) or charter a boat for more exciting catches. There are plenty of hidden coves and waterways to explore for your next fishing trip. Take the kids to Schlitterbahn, Galveston Island's amazing water park, or the NEW Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier which hosts many rides, games, and activities for all to enjoy as well as food at Bubba Gump's restaurant. Live Bands play on the end of the pier during the summer night weekends. Also entertainment is always just a few blocks away at the only Bar and restaurant over the sand on the seawall called The Beach Hut. Galveston has much to offer and explore and our home is right in the middle of all you could dream to do... it just needs you :)

We have another house on the island and will always be close if you have any question or issues during your stay. Feel free to contact us at any time! We look forward to sharing this amazing home with you and your friends and family!

Our stay was great. The house was really nice and beds were comfy. The dryer was very noisy though. I would recommend this house.

Very Comfortable and Convenient Stay!

Review submitted: August 7, 2014   Date of arrival: August 2, 2014

This is a very cute house with a fun blue crab beach theme. The colors and style of the home is classy. It's about 2 and a half blocks north of Sea Wall and easy walking distance to the beach. It's also about 6 blocks or so north of the Pleasure Peer. We stayed two nights and enjoyed the roomy accommodations and the front porch has a nice balcony. The driveway had room for both of our cars so we didn't need to park on the street. It's a quiet location and a great spot if you plan to go down to the Strand. The kids loved it and we can't wait to go back.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, pet-friendly, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Owners response: We're always pleased to hear our guests loved the Bungalow. I'm so glad you enjoyed the crab theme, bright colors and tropical decorations! We agree that the location is ideal, with only 1 block to the Seawall, 2.5 blocks to be down the stairs off Seawall and seated on the sand at the beach, 6 blocks to Pleasure Pier and a 2 minute car ride to the Historical Strand Downtown! The location is what we love the most.... on a quiet street with a balcony porch, yet you can walk to all the action and attractions on Galveston! Thanks for taking the time to share your review of the property and we hope to have you and your family back again soon!
