Why Sand `N Sea Galveston Beach House Rentals?

When you go on vacation, you want to relax. 

You don't want to worry about whether your crying baby will wake the folks next door, or how you're going to squeeze your family of six onto two full beds. Hotel rooms are convenient, but they don't always offer the space you need for a worry-free getaway.

At Sand `N Sea, we understand you want comfort & convenience while you’re on vacation — that's why we offer a variety of beach houses, with a wide range of features and amenities. Some of the types you can choose from include:

Regardless of the specific beach house you choose, you'll be able to accommodate everyone with ease and enjoy your getaway on your own terms. It's a home away from home, with the open floor plans, airy decks, and privacy you crave.

In addition, you'll also be able to select the amenities that are important to you, such as:

  • Boat docks
  • Lofts
  • Elevators
  • Private hot tubs
  • WiFi
  • Private pools
  • Subdivision pools

When you book with us, you’ll also find accommodations that cater to special requests. For instance, you can find a pet friendly rental with a simple search. 

The same goes for oversized houses that are perfect for large gatherings, or vacation rentals in sought-after locations, like the homes along the bay. We have Galveston beach house rentals on the Gulf and bay, houses with private pools, homes available for weekend stays, and much more.

 

Why Rent a Beach House in Galveston?

Of all the places in Texas to explore, why should you rent a beach house in Galveston? The answer is easy: It's the best of all worlds!

Panoramic Gulf views, protected bay waters teeming with fish, and miles of sandy beaches await. Any stay in Galveston also includes easy access to our wonderful downtown area. You'll also be able to enjoy plenty of recreational activities, as well as unique local events in and around the city.

How far is Galveston from Houston?

Galveston is only about 50 miles from Houston - only about an hour by car! It is fewer than four hours from Austin and about four-and-a-half hours from Dallas. Your beach retreat is within easy reach!

How old do you have to be to rent a beach house in Galveston?

You must be at least 25 years old to rent a beach house. Adults cannot rent properties on behalf of underage guests, and the leaseholder must be present during the entire period of occupancy. 

 

Tips for Choosing Galveston Beach Home Rentals

It only takes one internet search to realize that you have many options when it comes to Galveston beach rentals. How can you make sure you're finding the perfect spot?

Let's take a look at the following tips below that can make the process as simple as possible.

Do Your Research to Find a Galveston Island Beach Home

We get it. Vacation planning can be draining, and it's tempting to reserve the first spot that halfway meets your criteria.

However, it pays to do your research. When you rent a beach house, you are also effectively renting the services of whoever manages the home. A local team who cares about your vacation is key! 

How can you know you're on a professionally managed vacation rental site? Look for important features including:

  • An advanced search tool
  • The ability to sort results in multiple ways
  • Professional photography
  • An "About Us" page
  • Clearly listed rates (no hidden fees)
  • A secure checkout process
  • Guest reviews

That last bullet is especially important. A reputable rental manager will include plenty of reviews, feedback, and ratings from guests. If the site you're on doesn't include any outside opinion, it's time to continue your search elsewhere.

Prioritize Local

When you're looking for a Galveston beach house rental, it pays to partner with a local company like Sand `N Sea. 

Our staff works, plays, and lives on the Island. They love providing guests with ideas for things to do, places to see, and the very best local spots to grab a bite to eat.

They're also intimately familiar with the vacation houses on our site. They are here to listen to your vacation needs and help match you with the perfect house for your getaway - whether it's an intimate anniversary escape, your annual family beach trip or a fishing getaway!

And, if any issues arise during your stay, you can communicate 24/7 with someone right down the road. You're not on the phone with a representative thousands of miles away.

Know Your Timeframe

Galveston is an amazing place to visit at any time of the year! To help narrow your search options, it helps to think ahead about what you plan to do once you arrive on the Island. 

For instance, fall brings the Lone Star Rally and fishing tournaments. FeatherFest and Mardi Gras! Galveston both draw crowds in the springtime, and you won’t want to miss the Fourth of July festivities during the summer.

All year round, the community is bustling with festivals and special local events. If you're looking to relocate to Galveston beaches for the winter, we even have a Winter Texans program, offering 2-month rentals from October through February at a reduced rate.

Another reason to book your rental through a local company like us? We can help you figure out the best time to visit based on our special deals and discounts!

Create a Checklist to Find the Best Beach Houses in Galveston

Once you're on our site and take a look at our vacation rental inventory, you might wonder how to pinpoint the perfect house that will check every box on your list.

That's when it pays to make an actual list! 

Start by considering how many people will be on your trip. This will decide the minimum occupancy of the home you should be looking for. Then, narrow it down by the number of bedrooms and bathrooms you need. 

Other features to consider include:

  • Bed sizes
  • Preferred views - beachfront, beachside or bayfront?
  • Preferred location or neighborhood
  • Cozy classic beach house or spacious contemporary Island retreat?

You can also search for homes that allow your favorite pup to come along! Looking for a house that's near the area's best golf course or fishing spot? We'll help you find that, too. 

An easy way to manage your wish list is through the “Favorites” feature on our website. As you’re browsing our vacation rentals, just click the heart icon on the main property photo to add it to your Favorites. This makes it easy to come back to the rental houses you love!
 

Consider Grouping Homes

Not finding the exact vacation home that meets all of your requirements or is big enough to accommodate your whole crew? Why not rent Galveston beach houses that are adjacent to or near each other?

From family reunions to large groups of traveling friends and their little ones, there are a myriad of circumstances that warrant a combined space. 

Not sure where to look? We've already done the hard work for you!

Our Houses That Work Together page showcases homes that work in tandem with one another. You'll find plenty of options here, including multiple groupings in Pirates Beach, Sea Isle, and Pointe West! Bring the whole family along and invite them to bring a friend. You've got the room!
