Recent Galveston vacation rental reviews

Everything was ok!
Scott B. | Sep 2021
The house is nice. Not new, has imperfections, cozy, home feel. Vacasa worked well with us to be safe and get refund when we had to vacate early due to storm
Lisa E. | Sep 2021
Wow! This place was over-the-top! We did not leave the premises until check- out! The house was so comfortable and spacious, and provided plenty of room to spread out! The living areas were homey, and the bedrooms were beautifully decorated in beach themes and beachy colors. The kitchen was so well stocked, and had more amenities than my own kitchen.. it was nice to have some spices that I had forgotten! We also used the outside grill one night. There were plenty of games and a plethora of novels and books… The breathtaking view only added to the beauty of this property. The outdoor furniture was nice, and there was a great looking hot tub, that we did not get to use.. The sound of the waves was tranquil and soothing, and the easy access to the beach made for a most enjoyable vacation! The comfort of the home and the peaceful beachfront made this a perfect getaway!

Where is Galveston, TX?

Galveston Island is parallel to the Texas coast, deep in the heart of south Texas. When you stay in one of our Galveston beachfront rentals or condo rentals, you'll be about 50 miles from bustling Houston, TX, surrounded by gorgeous Galveston Bay to the north and the equally scenic Gulf of Mexico to the south.

Things to Do in Galveston, TX

Galveston boasts beautiful beaches, a variety of cultural attractions, and fresh, delicious seafood! Visit in September for the Galveston Island Wild Texas Shrimp Festival for gumbos and other popular shrimp dishes. Year-round, you can also plan a dinner out at Olympia the Grill at Pier 21 or head to Little Daddy's Gumbo Bar for a memorable seafood meal.

Galveston's Grand 1894 Opera House is a sure bet for entertainment and cultural events in town, with everything from concerts, theater, ballet, to yes, even opera. Every six to eight weeks, there's an Art Walk planned in the historic downtown district: Galveston has one of the largest concentrations of Victorian architecture in the US, and the city is also home to a thriving art gallery scene.

Outdoor Activities Near Your Galveston, TX Beach House Rental or Condo

When you step outside your Galveston beach house, you'll have things to do from sunrise to sunset: Galveston is an outdoor enthusiast's haven! Here you'll find hiking and biking trails, birding opportunities, and even gorgeous Gulf beaches (32 miles of beaches to be precise). The seawall along the Gulf of Mexico has almost 10 and a half miles of continuous sidewalk for walkers, joggers, bikers, and sightseers.

For a fun day trip, drive up to the small community of Crystal Beach, or make your way in the other direction to check out Galveston Island State Park in Jamaica Beach. 

Boating and Fishing in Galveston Bay

There's great boating in Galveston Bay - at Offatts Bayou, a lovely estuary, you can take a scenic cruise on a paddlewheel boat or spend an afternoon watching for loons. Of course, fishing in the Gulf is not to be missed, though please remember to purchase your Texas fishing license before reeling in your fresh catch of the day. Drop your line off the seawall, head out on the bay, or even get out further from the coast for offshore fishing - you might catch kingfish, snapper, and even tuna.

Galveston in Winter

Like the migratory birds fleeing from cold winter weather, many people have made it their yearly routine to flock to Galveston in the winter. You too can deem yourself a "Winter Texan" and enjoy your very own vacation rental in Galveston while you're at it! With year-round sun and a low annual temperature of 65°F, you won't need anything more than a blanket to keep warm while you sleep. Is this starting to sound like heaven yet?

When you're looking for a comfortable and conveniently-located Galveston beach house rental or condo, look no further - plan a getaway to sunny, laid-back Galveston and discover the benefits of island time today!
