About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 10

Welcome to peace and tranquility! Enjoy the warm, relaxing ocean available in the gulf of Mexico without the hassles of international travel. A comfortable, two bedroom home (sleeps 10) with a spacious, updated master suite including tub, & walk in closet. Features a large 2nd bedroom and full bathroom, accessible from both bedroom and open living area. The kitchen, living room, and dining area are located in the middle of the home which accommodates easy social gathering. The kitchen has custom cabinets with granite counter tops. An island in the middle of kitchen faces the open living area and deck with beach view. The house-wide half covered/half uncovered deck is comfortable for both sun worshipers and shade seekers, alike. From here, you can listen to the ocean and watch the waves. The beach is clean and quiet for family fun. Beach access is a hard surface road and is a short walk - a block and a half away.

I had a great time at Peace & Tranquility beach house. Great house and an awesome location. I went surf fishing everyday catching Bull Reds(lots of fun). Considering making this a yearly vacation, highly recommended. The owners (Kathy & Todd) are easy to deal with, great communication... Thanks Again, Scott

Swarms of mosquitoes greeted us upon arrival. Would think the hundreds of frogs singing outside would keep the mosquito population down. So, make sure you bring your mosquito net or citronella candles to place at outside balcony and plenty of bug repellent. If it had not rained cats and dogs every day we were there, we would not have noticed that there is no internet connection and have TV Antenna with very bad reception. Having said that, the house was very comfortable, clean and met our expectations. Despite the weather, skeeters, and being "incommunicado", all and all it was a good experience and would be willing to rent the house again.

End of Summer Bash

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 adults and 4 children staying 3 nights the weekend before school started. We had a GREAT time, if we had any questions a quick call or txt to Kathy and she responded quickly. The house has everything needed for enjoying a long weekend, plenty of room for everyone. The quick scroll down the road to get to the beach, was not bad at all. You have views of the ocean from the front porch table, which is where we spent majority of our time when we were not at the beach. We truly enjoyed ourselves and has already decided to make this a yearly trip. Personally anytime my family will be visiting Galveston, I will check with Kathy to see if their house is available. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us.

This was just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

This home was a beautiful get away and was exceptionally accomodating for me, my husband and three teenagers. The deck and beach chairs were our favorite spot while we drip dried from the "after beach" waterhose shower downstairs. Inside, there is plenty of room to move around, lots of sleeping space and the beds were all comfy, even the bunk beds. (the teens agreed) There's also a variety of movies and games to keep them entertained in the down times. In the kitchen and bathrooms, lots of linens, toilet paper, paper towels, dishes and cookware, utensils. There's even handsoap and dish soap. I was pleasantly surprised to see the cabinets had the basic staples like salt, pepper, miscellaneous spices, sugar, cooking oil and spray and even a few dry goods. The refrigerator had slightly used condiments like mustard, mayo, ketchup, butter, bbq sauce, even Aloe Vera gel for the sunburns they knew we'd get! Whether it was supplied by the house or just previous tenants, THANK YOU ♡ In turn, I left a few misc items that can be used again. We stayed on the island all 4 days and will be back as often as we can. The ferry ride over was free and relaxing. Bring your groceries or you can purchase everything you need and MORE at the Big Store down the road. Pack your personal hygiene items, sunscreen and bathing suit, that's all you need! The beach is about a block away so bring beach toys and enjoy the R&R.

Mr. And Mrs. Graves, thank you for allowing us to enjoy your beach home.

Sincerely,

Terrence and Regina Ervin
