It's time for some Sunshine Beach - your perfect beachfront getaway in Galveston, Texas! This charming vacation rental home is steps away from the beach in the family-friendly Pirates Beach area and promises an unforgettable vacation for you and your loved ones.

With 2 bedrooms and 1 bath, Sunshine Beach comfortably sleeps 6, making it an ideal choice for families seeking a smaller retreat by the Gulf of Mexico. Pull into the private driveway, open the gate to the exterior stairs and head on up! As you step onto the large main-level deck, you'll be greeted by breathtaking Gulf views that will instantly put you in vacation mode. This spacious deck is adorned with plenty of outdoor furniture, inviting you to soak in the sun, savor al fresco meals, or simply relish the sound of the waves crashing nearby.

Inside, the main level of Sunshine Beach features a well-equipped kitchen with all of the pots, pans, dishware, utensils and glassware you need for relaxing meals at your home-away-from-home. The bar-height dining table seats 4, and additional seating is available at the breakfast bar. Walls of windows and sliding glass doors let in plenty of natural light and showcase great Gulf views.

Down the hall on the main level, you’ll find both bedrooms. The primary bedroom features a queen bed and a dedicated work area with two monitors available for guests who need to keep in touch with the office. The nearby twin bedroom is great for adults or kids and opens out onto the main level deck. Everyone can find their perfect spot to unwind after a day of beachcombing and exploration!

The upper level living area is accessible via an interior spiral staircase or an exterior staircase off the deck. Great for hanging out with your favorite people, this crow’s nest-style room boasts three walls of windows that frame island views, several large chairs with ottomans, and a queen sleeper sofa.

After a night of peaceful relaxation, we know you’ll be ready to hit the beach for some fun in the sun! As the 2nd house away from the beach, you’ll have your toes in the sand in just a few steps. After a day of sun, sand & surf, you'll appreciate the convenient outdoor shower. There’s also a laundry room with a full-size washer & dryer on the ground level, perfect for longer stays. There’s even a charcoal grill for memorable cookouts under the starry Galveston skies.
