New Galveston Island Vacation Rentals

Beachfront vacations & fresh ocean breezes
Decks that face sunsets & fishing that pleases
Warm sandy afternoons spent like a king
…these are a few of our favorite things!

But our most favorite thing is adding new Galveston vacation rental options for our guests! Or maybe it’s welcoming new guests…no, it’s welcoming your family each year and seeing it grow & change…or, maybe…well, we have LOTS of favorite things, but introducing new vacation rentals is definitely in the Top 5!

We’ve had some gorgeous new Galveston Island vacation homes join our program in the last month, and we are excited to show them to you!

We know our beaches are the prime draw to our slice of coastal paradise – who can resist sitting in the surf with a cool drink in your hand? The stuff dreams are made of we tell ya! – but, head north from FM 3005 and you’ll discover another side to Galveston Island that’s well worth your time.

Mother & Daughters with Fish on Galveston IslandGalveston Bay is home to wildlife and marine animals as diverse as the bay & canal homes that border them! Red drum, sheepshead, flounder, sea trout and more are found in the bay.

Bring your boat or schedule a charter with a local fishing guide who knows all of the best spots! Or, just fish right from the deck of your canal front vacation rental. Grab bait from Sea Isle Bait Camp at the West End Marina, or stop by the Rusty Hook down towards Bay Harbor.

 

Looking for a truly unique casting experience? West End-based equipment lender Rick’s Beach Rentals offer fishing kayaks for 1 or 2 people by the day or week. Perfect for a paddle around the marshes or inlets!

Is the promise of excellent fishing not enough to convince your family to give the bay side a try? Reel them in with the promise of a private pool! We’ve got the perfect bait – three different canal front vacation rental homes with private pools: Aloha ParadiseBay Escape, , and Isla del Sol.

 

Catch Your Bay Getaway

 

Last but not least, check the weather forecast & read the fishing report to see what’s running. Who knows! Maybe you’ll join the ranks of the Texas Park & Wildlife’s Angler Recognition Program! Examing the current weight records and get ready to catch a big ‘un!

The 29th is currently forecasted to be an awesome day to jump into the water – 75 and partly sunny? Yes, please! However, if you’re not quite ready for the brisk water temps, we’ve found a few other things to entertain ourselves this Leap Day weekend 😉

Beachcombing 101 at the Galveston Island State Park on Feb. 27,10 a.m.
Itzhak Perlman at The Grand 1894 Opera House on Feb. 27, 8 p.m.
The 38th Annual Corvette Expo on Feb. 27 & 28.

Plus, Galveston boasts some of the national chains offering “leaplings” (people born on Feb. 29) special deals on Monday:  get a free personal pan pizza at Pizza Hut, or a free cookie at McAlister’s Deli.  Then, take a long walk along Seawall Blvd. to work off your indulgences!
