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.

Short walk to a great beach!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the layout of house, and a great short walk to the beach! The beach was not crowded, and the house backs to a open nature area, so it it very relaxing! The house is comfortable, and met our needs. We enjoyed the Bolivar ferry and close by restaurants! It was a great weekend escape!

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

Soggy Froggy

  • 4 of 5

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.
