Description of the Galveston vacation home rental
This LIGHT and AIRY house (built in 2006) is available for your family's enjoyment.

This is a very private location--great for a ROMANTIC GETAWAY, just to RELAX or to have FAMILY FUN. This secluded beauty is one of two houses located on a very large and uniquely private piece of land. Only the grass in the yard and the dunes separate you from the beach. There is a deck, which is available to renters, on the main 2nd story that is so massive it is almost as big as the house (I'm not kidding) you will have plenty of room to lounge around and take in the sun and warm ocean breezes. You can relax in one of two comfy hammocks. For your convenience there is an enclosed outdoor shower with hot and cold water--Great after a sandy day at the beach. Ocean's Twelve is our family home, so you will find all you need to have a "Wonderful time in Galveston". During the Summer the beach is cleaned daily. Sorry, we are unable to accommodate events, parties, weddings, or receptions.

You are only minutes from the new Schlitterbahn Water Park, Moody Gardens, and The Galveston Strand. We would like to share our home with caring, thoughtful friends and families.
Area Information
This home is located on a 3 acre piece of land between Bermuda Beach and Pirate's Beach. There is only one other house on the property. There are acres of green pasture land to the East and to the North of the property, the parking lot of the now defunct Beach Pocket Park #3 is approximately 150 feet to the West, and "THE GULF" is approximately 200 feet to the South. There is nothing but sand/grass between the house and the beach. We are located 7.3 miles West of Seawall Blvd. and 61st Street.

What a Beautiful Place

We really enjoyed our stay. We went in with a "rain or shine!" attitude and experienced a little of both! The house was sparkling clean and homey. Some people furnish their beach houses with their cast-offs -- not this place! Nice furniture throughout and the beds were comfy. It was so lovely to have such a great view of the beach all along the back of the house. We grew attached and were sad to leave.

Oceans Twelve

The house is beautiful and the spot is perfect. Quiet but close to sea wall. Lovely kitchen, great living spaces. Nice bathrooms and great deck with hammocks outdoor shower etc. Very modern and well decorated. The barbecue needs to be replaced. The beach this year was full of seaweed but it was all over Galveston. In 2012 when we stayed at the same house there was minimal seaweed. Luckily close to a public. Beach that was plowed, we were still able to walk to our beach tent every day. Great house!

Linda McCourt

Owner's reply:

Thank you so much,Dominique, for your positive review. We are glad that you and your family enjoyed your stay at "Ocean's Twelve". We would love to have you return. The view, proximity to town, and short walk to the beach are some of the reasons we enjoy the home. Hopefully next year the seaweed will be back to normal. I appreciate your letting me know about the BBQ grill. It is going to be on the top of my list and will be replaced ASAP.

Exceptional Beach Home

My family and I very much enjoyed our stay at Ocean's Twelve. The home has a wonderful open floor plan that allows you to enjoy beautiful views. It is exceptionally furnished and is comfortable and cozy. The home sits on a very quiet, beautiful piece of property that allows for a very relaxing vacation, and the outdoor deck and bottom floor patio were the perfect way to enjoy time away from the beach. The owner has thought of everything, provides her guests with everything they might need, and she is a delight to rent from. We will absolutely choose Ocean's Twelve for our next stay in Galveston!

Owner's reply:

I'm glad that your family enjoyed "Oceans Twelve". It was my pleasure having you and your family here. It is always good to hear that our guests had everything they needed to have a good time. That is our goal. You are welcome here anytime!

Great house to rent for a family beach getaway!

"Ocean's Twelve" is a beautiful, well designed, well maintained and clean beach home...the perfect place for a family beach retreat. There are excellent unobstructed views of the Gulf, a large deck with lots of seating, and its only a short walk to the beach. The open floor plan works very well - the kitchen is well appointed, the living area large and open with lots of conversation areas and seating, the outdoor shower really helped us make the transition from outdoor to indoor activities, and the beds were all very comfortable. The house is stocked with many amenities that are available for guest use, including hammocks, boogie boards, beach chairs, a BBQ pit, toys and games, And it's a pleasure to do business with the owner - she is flexible and considerate in her attention to her guests' needs. It's hands down our the best Galveston rental yet.

Beautiful property, mostly enjoyable stay

The owner was conscientious and cared for their guests as much as they cared for their property. The home was beautiful and had even more amenities than expected . . . Great for a large family. The property is only a short walk to the beach. The only challenge we had were heavy mosquitos around the property. If this is addressed, the experience will exceed expectations, in my opinion.

Ocean's Twelve Review

This was a pleasant surprise. The home was very comfortable, plenty of room for four adult women. The deck added extra room and great viewing of the ocean which was only 100 yards away. Our girl's weekend was a roaring success. We're hoping to return.

An outstanding location on the beach with lots of privacy. Perfect for kids and adults. We loved everything about this house!

Girl Friends Week

We had a thoroghly enjoyable time at Ocean's Twelve. The house is simply gorgeous. Even though it's located just foot steps away from the beach, we spent a lot of our time relaxing on the beautiful deck...enjoying the ocean breeze, playing card games, listening to music, having engaging conversations, and comparing grandchildren stories! Looking out on the calming ocean and the vast blue sky every morning gave us a greater appreciation of God's awesome creation. Linda, the owner, is very personable and accomodating. We certainly plan to share our experience with family and friends.

Private relaxation

The house was located in a beautiful and private area on west end of island, but not too far out. It was comfortably furnished, bright and cheery, well-appointed, maintained and almost immaculately clean. It was a sheer pleasure to stay there, even though the sun wakes the east bedroom early - making sure the sunrise isn't missed, either from the large deck or through the wall of windows in the cozy living area .... We probably will not stay anywhere else on return trips to Galveston....

Our Beach Experience 2010

Everything was PERFECT. I would recommend this beach house to anyone.The owner gave us a price break; being that we did not arrive until the 5th. We did miss 2 things,however. A programmable coffeepot.I love waking up in the morning and the coffee is waiting for me! I cannot tell a lie. We missed our WIFI !!!! Even on vacation. Our owner was very friendly and the house is beautiful. Comfy and cozy. Lots of seating areas. Beds are wonderful.The view spectacular. Perfect.



Great Beach House

Ocean's Twelve is a wonderful beach house. Very cozy and decorated nicely. We had a wonderful vacation. Thanks for wonderful memories. Jennifer

Exceptional home

My husband and I booked a quick weekend getaway at Ocean's Twelve and even though the weather wasn't that great, the house certainly was! Open and full of sun (when it was shining), with lots of comfy couches to curl up in (when it was raining). The owner is fabulous - left us lots of menus and we highly recommend the Sunflower Bakery! House is perfectly located between the hustle and bustle of the Galveston strip (so not interested in that!) and Jamaica Beach. In a very secluded area, next to a now-closed park, so you almost feel as if you have the beach to yourself. But close enough to town to pop in for a quick meal. We routinely rent beach homes all over the U.S. and this one was one of the best -- the owner keeps her kitchen stocked with the essentials, which is so convenient! The decor is impeccable -- five plus stars for this wonderful beachfront rental!

Beautiful and Relaxing

This a great place to take the family or significant other and enjoy peace and quiet. The lovely, warm home is equipped with everything you will need and is on a gorgeous part of the beach! The owner was wonderful and we received our security deposit once we left in a flash!

Exceptional Property

We fell in love with the sea blue decor and arrangement of the living room/kitchen/dining room open concept. All beds are comfortable and there's plenty of space to be by yourself or have a family time in front of the tv or playing games. Great sunrise view over the water.
