Château Soleil is french; château = large estate and soleil = sun, which is perfectly fitting, as this estate offers large windows throughout that let the sun and beach views extend inside the five-bedroom, three-bath home, and also offers storm shutters for those who enjoy total darkness for sleeping late.

This amazing home offers one of the best decks in Galveston with three access areas from the home. Talk about expansive, with tile flooring, natural wood above, unobstructed views and a railing that allows guests to see the view even when sitting and relaxing.

Château Soleil is an open-floorplan, great for entertaining guests and holding family get-togethers. The living area offers a 2-story vaulted ceiling with almost floor-to-ceiling windows, a large U-shape sectional sofa, complete with an interior overlook from the second floor.

Château Soleil The kitchen is wonderful for entertaining, with plenty of room for moving around, stainless steel appliances, French door refrigerator, ice-maker, granite countertops throughout, 2 huge islands, and an extra bar sink! This is the kitchen for you foodies out there! The kitchen is open to the dining and living areas.

SLEEPING: The true primary bedroom (king bed sleeps 2 + sofa sleeper sleeps 2) is located on the second floor with an ensuite bathroom. A second primary is also located on the second level with a queen bed (sleeps 2) and an ensuite bath. From the second primary bedroom, guests may access the loft bedroom, located on the third level, which offers a full over full bunk (sleeps 4). Two additional queen bedrooms (2x2, sleeps 4 in both bedrooms) are located on the first floor with a jack and jill bath between. Please note, to access the second bedroom on the main level, guests must pass through the first bedroom. Château Soleil may accommodate a total of 14 guests.

Spanish Grant is a quaint, cozy, welcoming, friendly, island beach village, established well before the ’90s, located just seven miles West of 61st Street, with just three rows of beach homes and offers multiple pathways to access the beach. The beach in Spanish Grant is not a drive-on beach, which many families with small children prefer.

Ryson partners exclusively with Gulf Coast Concierge to make your time on the island unforgettable! Gulf Coast Concierge understands it's the little things that count. Create your own adventures with beach gear and golf cart rentals, a sunset cruise or a bonfire and smores on the beach. Gulf Coast Concierge also offers fishing charters, photo sessions, and a variety of in-home services. If you can dream it, we will do our best to make it happen!

Overall the house was good but guest services did not respond most of the time and took away from me spending time with family because I had to constantly try to reach someone. Beds were comfortable. Kitchen was nice and big. The view was great. Love the location. Several things did not work. Freezer didn’t work. We arrived on a Thursday, reported it Friday morning, two different very nice people came to check it out and later in the day I was given a code to unlock the owner’s freezer that did not work but took till calling again Saturday morning to get a resolution. Jacob was nice and helpful when I got to talk to him but couldn’t always get him. Couldn’t get an answer Friday evening. Deck door would not lock. Kitchen ceiling fan not working. Some shutters did not work. Primary king room bed had a queen flat sheet that did not fit the king bed and the shower leaked on the floor when using the wall jets. There’s not a table on the deck. The telescope does not work. There are no stairs to go down from the deck…only inside the house.

We really liked the location/beach access, the number of towels, the number of access points to the balconies/view, and parking space. However, we noticed that the master shower leaked and a kitchen outlet did not work (which we reported and you responded to quickly). Also, over the days there, we noticed that the property seemed much more beaten up than I would\'ve expected for such a new building - the walls were dirty, the couch was saggy, couch pillows had stains, the sliding shower doors for the bathroom off of the queen were very difficult to move and/or off the track, one of the toilets was not fully secured to the ground (tilted when you sat on it), the outdoor grill was tipped over when we arrived (which we put upright) and was covered in rust. I know it stated there were no kitchen essentials but we were shocked to find salt, pepper, and coffee filters weren\'t even on-site.
