About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, 15 Sleeps

Located directly on a private beach, Ariel is a custom-built, family-owned home in Terramar Beach in the lovely West End of Galveston. This house will give you and your family all that you need to get away from it all or to at least have a beautiful resting place after a day out on the sea wall and historic downtown Galveston. Directly decorated by the owners, your family and guests will enjoy tranquil themes and ocean views from both inside and outside the house.

Sleeping up to 15, this house was made for family vacations and entertaining. It has two master bedrooms with king size beds in each of them, making it perfect for group vacations; 2 full bathrooms, a half bathroom completely detached for convenient use by guests in the living room kitchen area, and two private decks boasting of beach views. This is all on top of having views of the ocean from top to bottom of the house.

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 40" Flat Screen TV or enjoy a board game at our large, wooden kitchen table perfect for conversing and dining around.

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 around 20 minutes 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 20 minutes away driving.

About Pablo or Lisa

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 or Lisa purchased this house in 2004

Why Pablo or Lisa 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.

Awesome Place to Stay for Family Beach Trip

  • 5 of 5

The property was outstanding. We had two families both with small children so we needed a place with easy access to and from the beach. This beach house was perfect for us. The house had all we needed and the large dining room table was really nice so we could all sit together and eat meals. Steps away from the beach which was never crowded. Short drive back into town if you want to dine out and visit the Strand area. We will be back for sure.

Beautiful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Ariel house for a family vacation and loved it! House was clean and big enough to provide enough space for my parents and two siblings families. We played on the beach every day and found Moody Gardens and Pleasure Pier not too far away.

I highly recommend staying in this lovely beach side home!

Awesome house and location!

This house is perfect for big groups and multiple families. It is in a very family friendly portion of the West End and can accommodate several people. The appliances are also upgraded which is really nice. Thanks! We had a great time!

Best Beach View on the Island.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year at Ariel. It is the best place to relax and just enjoy the quite . The beach is clean and the people are pleasant. Our little Yorkies love roaming . The house is always clean and in good repair. The owners, Pablo and Lisa , are so kind and accommodating. We have rented from them three years now. The house arrangement would accommodate three to four families . Beach is just a few yards from front walk. New washer and dryer this year. We look forward to next year.
