Description from owner

Great beachside home just steps from the water in Palm Beach, one of the quaintest neighborhoods on the West End. 3 Houses from beach on quiet dead-end street with no cars on the beach, so no worries! Beach view is spectacular with no loss of privacy from your covered deck along with hot tub on the lower level.

This could be your own private paradise with balmy breezes 'BRISAS' blowing year round. A very livable home with great room and two bedrooms. Minutes from all that Galveston Island has to offer, close to all the West End eateries too.

The home is pet friendly and features a large covered deck with a gate and a fully fenced back yard so your dog can enjoy the outdoor activities along with you. There is also an enclosed outdoor shower so you can rinse off after enjoying the beach or relaxing in the nearby hot tub.

Beds: 1 King Bed, 1 Queen Bed, 1 Double Bed

“Great Location --Relaxing”

Reviewed 5 Jan 2017

My family stayed in Brisas over the Christmas Holiday. It is a clean, nice little beach-side house with clear unobstructed Gulf views Less than a minute walk to the beach. The kitchen is well equipped and the living space is comfortable.Pet friendly with a nice fenced in yard..A few details need tending to, but overall in good shape.I would stay there again.

“Last Minute Getaway!”

Reviewed 2 Nov 2016

My husband and I took a trip to Galveston for our Anniversary and just fell in love with this place! Marilyn was quick to respond to us, and made everything super easy. The house itself is absolutely gorgeous, and felt like home. We have traveled to many different places, but this was by far our favorite! Can't wait to return! :)

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for that glowing review of Brisas! I am delighted to hear you enjoyed your anniversary celebration and look forward to seeing you back again soon.

“Perfect Family Beach Vacation”

Reviewed 20 Jun 2016

My little family of 5 and 2 dogs wanted to get away and spend a week on the beach and knew a beach home rental would meet our needs. But this charming home was perfect. Very clean, wonderful deck to watch the waves and dolphins from and only a few short steps to the beach. The fenced in yard was wonderful as we were able to let the kids and dogs out to play without any worries and the neighborhood is very friendly and quiet. The hot tub was a bonus which we enjoyed in the evenings after a long day in the ocean. We really enjoyed our stay and will stay again. Marilyn also was very prompt in responding to emails and making sure everything was taken care of for us. Thank you Marilyn for letting us stay and make family memories that will last a lifetime.

Owner's reply: Thanks for that lovely review Jaysa. We are so happy that you and the family enjoyed your stay at Brisas and we look forward to seeing you back again.

“Everything you need”

Reviewed 26 May 2016

Pet friendly large fenced yard makes vacation so much more enjoyable and stress free. Brisas is so comfortable, clean, and has everything you need. It is a minute walk to the beach and has a great view of the sea from the deck. The deck seating is various and comfortable. There is an outdoor shower with warm water. Very convenient for keeping sand out of the house. This is my second time here. My friends who joined me last year have been back with their families.

Owner's reply: Thank you Shannon for that nice review. I am so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and found the property to be comfortable and convenient.

“Perfect location and wonderful manager”

I loved staying at Brisas. Very cleans comfortable, quiet, pet friendly, and only 50 steps to the beach. Marilyn is such kind property manager and assisted me with anything I needed. Will be back soon.

Owner's reply: Thank you for the nice review Jenny. I was happy to help out in any way I could and look for to having you back again soon!

“PERFECT VACATION HOUSE!”

Reviewed 7 Jul 2015

We stayed here June 26 - July 3, 2015. I only have three words to describe our stay, Perfect, Perfect, Perfect! Perfect location, perfect house, perfect price! We will definitely be staying here again. The house is only steps away from the beach. The covered porch is amazing! It has a perfect view of the beach. The house is the perfect size for a family of 4 or 5 and it was very clean. The kitchen is a very good size and was fully equipped. The neighborhood is very quiet and the locals were extremely friendly. I highly recommend this house for your next vacation. We can't wait to stay here next summer!

“Wonderful pet-friendly beach retreat”

Reviewed 1 Jun 2015

We stayed in Brisas the week of 5/18-22/2015. The weather was great and we had a great time. The totally fenced back yard was perfect - you can take the pups back and forth from the beach as many times as they can handle, and then they can rest in the yard without having to climb the stairs multiple times. The way the house is situated, there is always some shade in the back yard. The deck area stays shaded morning through mid-afternoon, and then the shade moves into the yard area until evening. My dogs are older, so they could only manage one trip downstairs in the morning and then back up before bedtime. The walk to the beach is very short, about a block. The park authority keeps the neighborhood beach area pretty clean and there are no crowds to deal with. The ground floor deck is very nice with a hot tub, small charcoal grill and chairs. My only quibble with the ground floor deck is that a little table (to stage items during grilling) would be helpful. The upper deck has a very nice view of the beach/ocean and is great for eating out. The neighborhood does periodic mosquito spraying, so we saw very few of the bloodsuckers during our stay. The house is very nice and all the appliances work well. The bedrooms each have a TV, and the evenings are very quiet and restful. We were outside almost all day every day, so we didn't get to use the living room area much at all, but it also has a nice TV and furniture. When we first arrived, some of the exterior lights were burned out, but Marilyn was super responsive, and the very nice handyman had everything fixed up a couple of hours later. Folks with dogs may want to inquire when the lawn service is scheduled during the week so you can make sure the dogs are out of the way at that time. There is a little mom and pop grocery/deli less than a mile down the road, which was a good convenience. This is a great property and I hope we can return again.

Owner's reply: Thanks for the great review Steve! We are so happy that you and the pups enjoyed your stay at Brisas. Just a note about the downstairs table - the table was damaged in the storm we had a few weeks ago and could not be saved. It will be replaced as soon at they are back in stock. I guess a lot of folk's tables need to be replaced. Hope to see you back soon!

“overly pleased”

Reviewed 30 May 2015

we stayed here with two couples and two friends for my husbands birthday. We were so pleasantly surprised as we opened the door. The photos don't quite do it justice. This house was super clean and has lots of windows were you have almost a full view of the ocean. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the dishes and utensils you could possibly need. Even a few board games in the closet. The one bathroom was never a problem even with 6 people drinking nearly all day. Beds were comfy and felt like home. We liked it so much we stayed an extra night. We will definitely be back! Thank you for such a wonderful experience:)

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your lovely review of Brisas. We are so pleased that you found everything to your liking in the home and we hope to see you back again when your future vacation plans include a trip to Galveston!

“The perfect beach retreat in Galveston”

Reviewed 24 Jun 2014

We just spent a week at this amazing little beach house. Surprisingly for a relatively small square footage, the actual appearance was very spacious because of the open floorplan. The covered deck was a welcomed refuge from the sun while embracing the constant ocean breezes. The house was absolutely perfect and the owner was very accommodating to our every request. The neighborhood is quiet and offers a very safe feeling. We took our precious little puppies and our youngest baby just couldn't get enough of the deck and the ocean wind. The hot tub was an unexpected surprise when we awoke the 2nd day with sore legs from being in the ocean. A quick soak, again while enjoying the ocean breeze and we were renewed. I can not say enough good things about this home. The only downside was the abundance of seaweed but for a piece of heaven it was a small price to pay. We will definitely return to this home for many years to come. Marilyn, thank you, thank you, thank you. Keep this little gem for those of us that do not have the opportunity to live on the beach. It was the perfect getaway.

Owner's reply: Thanks so much for the lovely review! We really appreciate hearing about the wonderful experiences folks are having at Brisas and on our beautiful beach. The Palm Beach Supporters Alliance was formed this summer to deal with the unusual amount of seaweed that has been washing in on our beaches. We now have a professional beach raking service that removes the seaweed once a week and keeps our beach as clean and seaweed free as possible. Thanks again!

“Awesome Beach House”

Reviewed 13 May 2014

This place is a composition of peace and serenity. The decor was tastefully done in a very pleasing manner to provide a very casual atmosphere. The view from the veranda of the beach couple with a drink in hand is great, followed by a walk on the beach and finishing with a late night soak in the hot tub, priceless.

My family and I stayed at Brisas for 6 nights and had a wonderful time. We played at the beach, rode the ferry to Boliver Island and went to Schlitterbahn. The house was perfect for us, close to the beach and certainly met our needs. The patio rocks on the 4th. Fireworks were everywhere and the kids loved it. (Frankly, so did the parents)! Overall the trip was awesome and we would do it again here next year.

We brought my grandmother down here for her 70th birthday. She loves Galveston! We all had a blast. The view from the deck is amazing and can't wait to return.

I just wanted to say thank you. We had a wonderful time at your rental property this weekend, Everything was great from the proximity to the beach, the amenities of the house and things to do around the island. It really was a fantastic time and I cannot thank you enough. If we decide to rent a house again we will definitely be talking to you.
