Where you'll be
No need to search for 2 vacation rentals that end up being blocks apart, or 1 ultra large rental with not enough space to turn around with out bumping into your hommie. This purpose built vacation rental has 2 of everything! 2 kitchens, 2 living rooms, 2 washers/dryers all at same property rented out as 1 rental. This vacation rental has enough total entertainment space to host a small village. Literally the perfect solution to a large group up to 20 that would like the benefit of having extra space with separate kitchens and multiple entertaining spaces. Or to a large group that needs individual beds. The front and back house each sleep up to 10 guests, have fully appointed kitchens and separate washer and dryers. The Big Blue House is perfect as your forward operating base to explore the entire Island. Located just a 5 minute drive to the heart of Seawall Blvd with miles of beach access, 7 mins to Stewart Beach, 10 minutes to Schlitterbahn and Moody Gardens, 5 minutes to Pleasure Pier and conveniently located only .5 miles to The Historic Strand District, Cruise Terminal and Pier 21. The Galveston-Bolivar Ferry and other attractions are only a short drive.
