About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 14

Located directly on a secluded beach restricted from vehicle access, Mia Bella is a custom-built, family-owned home in Terramar Beach in the lovely West End of Galveston. Directly decorated by the owners, this home will leave your family and guests in tranquility and with ocean views from both inside and outside the house.

Sleeping up to 15, this house was made for family vacations and entertaining. It has three master bedrooms making it perfect for group vacations; three full bathrooms, and two private decks boasting of beach views.

Since you'll be able to step directly onto the beach and set up your things, the house also has an outdoor shower to easily wash away the sand as you enter in and out of the house. The kitchen and main shared area has stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops and a total maritime atmosphere that will welcome you at the kitchen while watching the beach.

In the living room make wonderful memories both day and night. After a wonderful day in the sun, take a seat at the couch and enjoy your favorite movie with a 42" HDTV LCD TV.

Parking available for four vehicles on a private driveway but of course you can park more in front on the private feeder road into the house.

If you ever want to leave the private beach for some sight seeing and tourist activities, you're less than 20 minutes's driving distance from Galveston's famous Pleasure Pier, Seawall, and Historic Strand. Our family personally loves The Spot for food and the Strand for beautiful sight seeing of antique shops, ice cream vendors, and candy shops! Post Office street also boasts a number of coffee shops and art galleries with works of art on sale. There is also a beautiful, boutique tea and coffee shop called Sugar Bean located only 10 minutes away driving.

About Pablo Arias

My name is Pablo Arias. My family have been coming to Galveston since we purchased our first family vacation home here in nearly 30 years ago. We have cherished this Island as a place for our family vacations for decades, and given the amount of time we have spent on the island we became Islanders ourselves, moving here officially from Houston several years ago.

Our mission is simple: We want you to love Galveston's West End as much as we do as a place for family vacations and getaways. We have been in the property rentals and management business for decades now and ensure every one of our customers gets personalized attention as needed.

Pablo Arias purchased this house in 2006

Why Pablo Arias chose Terramar Beach

While some houses have views, and others have the space, this house has both. The West End is home to some of the most beautiful sunsets on the Island and with windows on every floor and beachfront views, you'll get front row seats.

What makes this house unique

I live minutes away from all the properties and therefore for any emergencies or issues, you can count on getting help. We are not some property management company with contractors, we are a family who directly manage these properties and know the island well.

Perfect Beach House for our family of 12

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish this was a great rental for our family. Everyone loved the layout of the house , the beach front location, the amenities included with the house and the awesome views of the Gulf from the living room to the bedrooms, to the awesome deck off of the living room. Since our rental was in February we were unable to fully use the beach. We hope to be back in the summer months to enjoy the outside parts of the rental, including the beach. Tons of outdoor chairs, picnic table and short path to the beach. The only negative was the charcoal grill probably needs to be replaced. It was hard to keep the grill rack in place as it smaller than the grill and/or just doesn't fit at this point. Pablo and his wife were awesome and picking up and dropping off the keys were a breeze. Can't wait to come back and enjoy Galveston in the warmer months.

Had a wonderful time with my grandchildren and great grandchildren in this beautiful home! It had three queen bedrooms, one double, one bunk room and a futon open room at the top of the stairs. There were 13 of us and the home accomadayed all of us perfectly. We had front row beach view with a short walk to the water. Enjoyed visiting on the large balcony watching the waves roll in.

Will definitely want to return!

Mia Bella was perfect for our vacation

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay on this quiet part of the beach. With the number of bedrooms and bathrooms that the home offers, everyone had a private bedroom and yet we could spend quality time together in the living area and on the expansive decks. It is decorated beautifully and just has comfort written all over it. Well done, Pablo. The owners were easy to deal with and made us feel welcome. Will definitely look at this one again next time we are in the area and need lots of room.

We loved this house!

  • 5 of 5

Mia Bella is a beautiful beach front home. We enjoyed our stay. 5 bedrooms, there was plenty of room for our large family. Everyone had a spot. We really loved the large sectional sofa!!! Ice cold A/C!!! Upstairs deck is nice for afternoon cocktails. Kitchen is well stocked. Washer and dryer worked perfectly. Parking was nice. Very comfortable vacation rental. Pablo was great to work with and checking in and out was seemless. We didn't have any questions but I am sure if we did, Pablo would have jumped right on it.

Great get away

  • 5 of 5

This was the third time we have rented a beach house on the island and it was by far the best. Here are the pros and one con:

Pros: Well equipped, modern kitchen; clean and comfortable bedding; plenty of patio furniture and beach chairs; great electric storm shutters to keep that morning sun out; big deck upstairs and picnic table underneath to sit at while BBQing; nice outdoor shower; working with the manager was easy and pleasant.

Con: One half of the kitchen table is bench seating and hard for the elderly to get in and out.
