Description of the Galveston vacation home rental
Reserve Azure Vista, our cozy beachfront retreat, and relax on the spacious wraparound deck and porch. We welcome small dogs and provide a gate so your pets can enjoy the deck along with you.

Post Ike we are better than ever! The home has been completely remodeled and features porcelain floor tile throughout. The spacious new shower features glazed Spanish tile accents, clear glass by-pass doors, a glass block window and multi-function showerhead.

The home is bright and airy with many windows, cathedral ceilings, three new ceiling fans, an electric fireplace for cool evenings, high-speed Internet access and a flat panel satellite TV system. The leather sofa folds out to make a queen size bed and the bedroom has a king bed with a 20" flat panel TV. For your convenience, there is a full size range, dishwasher, new refrigerator and washer/dryer combo.

Now, let me tell you how to spend the perfect day at Azure Vista. Go for an early morning run (or stroll) on the beach. Come back and enjoy a nice shower. Cook up some bacon and eggs in the fully equiped kitchen and sip some coffee on the covered porch.

Drive into town and pick up some bait, then come back and go fishing right outside on the beach. It should be pretty easy to catch dinner, but if you don't have any luck, hop in the car and drive down the road to Seven Seas Grocery. Bag up some big Gulf Shrimp from the ice filled cooler inside. These babies were swimming in the Gulf last night. If steak is your thing, this place has the best on the Island.

Bring back your groceries and fire up the Weber BBQ Grill. It always tastes better by the beach. After dinner, relax for a couple of hours - or the rest of the night - it's already been a wonderful day. Or, go out to one of the beachside bars and sip some cold beer or drink a Margarita.

Get a good night's sleep, wake up to the sounds of the ocean and do it again tomorrow!
Area Information
Azure Vista is located in the Palm Beach sub-division just 8 miles from 61st Street and the Sea Wall. We are on West Beach and are in between Pirates Beach and Pirates Beach West. Our house is the last one on Vista Blvd on the west side of the street.

The city and state workers are sifting all of the sand on the West End beaches and clearing away any debris left behind by Ike. Rest assured, the beaches will be safe and clean for your vacation rental this season.

Other Vacation Rental Amenities
Moody Gardens is approximately a 15 minute drive away and features a wealth of attractions and activities for young and old alike. There are some wonderful seafood restaurants on the Seawall in Galveston, including Landry's and Guidos. I highly recommend both of them.

Awesome beach house experience!

What a great long weekend we had at this terrific spot! Steps from the beach, windows open at night hearing the surf right out front - beach therapy. We intended to head out to restaurants, but took the owner's advice and ran up to Seven Seas grocery each day to get provisions. Burgers and shrimp one night, steak and shrimp the next. Could not have been better. Excellent location for a beach house and very comfortable. Our dog loved it too - chasing crabs and birds on the beach, he was worn out at night. All in all a great little vacation spot….we will be back. Thanks!

Azure Vista was perfect for my wife and I. Wished we could have stayed longer. Fantastic views of the ocean. Hope to return again soon.

Location, location, location

This was our first visit to Galveston and reserving a rental from online ads can be tricky. We were very pleased with the location. It has a more laid back and quiet atmosphere than a few miles away on the sea wall yet it is convenient to all the attractions there. We can't wait for our next opportunity to visit!

Great Beach House

The views from the deck are spectacular. Its just a few steps to the beach. We only stayed a few days to get a feel for the place and we loved it. Our dog enjoyed the spacious yard and walking on the beach. I tried my luck at fishing and had two bites in fifteen minutes. I actually landed a small fish but always practice catch and release. We had a great time and plan to be back next year. I hope the owners will give us a pass since our puppy will be full grown next year. She is very well behaved, loves swimming in the ocean and enjoyed playing with the other dogs in the area. Thank you for a awesome and relaxing vacation.

Owner's reply:

Thanks for the wonderful review Allan! We would be happy for you and the "big pup" to visit again next year.

Piece of paradise

Azure Vista is a sweet, cozy, perfect little gem that sits steps from the water. Everything you could possibly need has been thought of, AC works great; felt so good when coming in from the heat. It's no wonder this little piece of paradise is always booked up so if you see it vacant you better grab it. Only problem is you have to leave!! Marilyn is a sweetheart to communicate with, and has already sent our deposit back and it has not even been a week. You cannot go wrong in renting Azure Vista; we hope to go back again and again. OH yeah, the deck is awesome; our furry girls loved it as much as we did !

Had a blast!!

My family (husband, myself, 3 year old daughter, 2 schnauzers) had a wonderful time at this property. While small, it was perfect for our needs, as the deck provides so much extra enjoyable space. We even made a fort on the deck that our daughter loved, and helped to block out the sun. Footsteps from the beach and water, we enjoyed playing there and watching from the deck. The outdoor shower and water hoses helped a lot to get the sand off. Water hose length a plus for washing off the sand film from the car windows too. Kitchen had everything we needed. Washer/Dryer worked great. Living room chairs and sofa very comfy. Entertainment instructions very helpful for using the DVD player and Netflix. We hope to come back again.

the perfect getaway

This was our 3rd trip to this perfect little beach house. Our small family had plenty of space to enjoy the breathtaking views of the ocean. We spent most of our time on the large private deck facing the ocean. There is a BBQ area/shower below with picnic area. Can't wait to go back:) Kristy and Tony

Relaxing and just steps from the beach

Great place to visit and such a wonderful home! Marilyn provides her guests with a "home away from home". Truly she has everything you could want in the kitchen and bathroom, plus plenty of extra pillows and blankets. There is a Weber grill and some beach chairs along with a picnic table under the house (it is on stilts). The bed is comfy with a great mattress and pillows. It was wonderful to wake up to the sound and smell of the ocean. I loved the enclosed porch so out little dog could sit outside with us. The stars are just beautiful out there, you can see so many more than normal.

Our new 2nd home!!

This home was sparkling clean and comfortable!! It is obvious someone has been very thoughtful in preparing this home. I actually teared up when it was time to pull out. So grateful for the wonderful memories we have from our stay!! Can't wait to return!!

Hate to leave

We have had a wonderful stay here (2 adults 1 child)... everything you could ask for (except a hunk of a cabana boy - bring your own - cabana and cabana boy *wink*) Out of the way of the busy heart of things but close enough to get there in a very short time. Had a blast. Everything is clean and comfortable and in very good shape. Appreciated the A/C after a hot day on the beach which is a stones throw from the balcony (we did not throw stones hehe) There is a lot of seaweed that washes up but it did not keep us from having fun. If that kind of thing bothers you, bring a rake. Thank you so very much for a lovely place to stay for a fantastic vacation. Sure hate to leave.

Marilyn Bridges

Owner's reply:

Thank you Di for the lovely review. We do strive to make our rental properties family friendly and keep them stoked with all the essentials for a wonderful beach vacation.

Very nice - but small! Perfect for one or two people or couple with a small child, but I think we'll go with Andrea's Retreat next year. All of the amenities and lovely bathroom. Marilyn is the perfect owner - very attentive to problems. Bring a garden rake! The only suggestion I have is that the owners get together and have someone rake the beach every morning during seaweed season. Hate having to rake a path through it every day.

Great Little House with a Beach at the Steps

We stayed at the Azure in July 2010 and have already booked for July 2011. We look forward to the clean cozy home with the smells of the ocean at the door. Great home at a very reasonable price.

Best yet!

We stayed here from the day after thanksgiving and left on Christmas day with heavy hearts! (did not want to leave) What a wonderful little home by the ocean. We had good weather so we could take walks on the beach with the 2 dogs, got wonderful pictures of the eclipse from the deck, just relaxed and enjoyed the time we had there. I recommend it for anyone that wants to get away and just enjoy life! We found Marilyn easy to work with and ready to help with anything we asked for. We already have reservations for this year and can't wait. Thanks Marilyn for providing this getaway for us and others.

This house is awesome. It is right on the beach and the view is incrediable. The house is charming and great for a romantic get away.

Great Little Gem

This little beach house is located right next to the ocean. It has everything you could possibly need for two people (and maybe a couple more). It is very clean and well-equipped. The bed is comfy and there's a nice big TV in the main room, as well as a cute fireplace. Two thumbs up!


Tepoztlan, Morelos, Mexico

Perfect romantic hideaway

The location is amazing - you can hear the surf almost constantly. Beach house came with everything we needed - very clean and cozy - an ideal getaway for a couple. Best sleep I've had in months! Would recommend it in a heartbeat.
