What do Beachtown Vacation Homes include?

Talk about luxury beachfront living! Beachtown is one of Galveston Island’s newest subdivision neighborhoods and community, inspired by Galveston’s rich Victorian architectural heritage. Beachtown offers vacation homes valued over a million dollars, most with multiple decks that make the most of the Gulf views. This master-planned community developed by world-renowned Duany Plater-Zyberk & Company offers walking and bike paths and is defined by a genuine town center.

All Beachtown vacation homes are equipped with fully stocked kitchens including pots, pans and dishes to make breakfast, lunch or dinner, and guests are so close to so many delicious places to eat so if you don’t feel like cooking or decide to order in after spending a long day on one of Galveston’s beaches.

The beaches around Beachtown grow at several feet per year. This widening beach has become one of the many natural gifts and ecological wonders of this very special place by the sea. 

Things To Do Near Beachtown

Ryson encourages you to take a little bike ride throughout the amazing neighborhood or a walk right down the street to the beach! Or check out one of the nearest places to eat, the Porch Cafe that serves brunch and dinner from Friday to Sunday.

Beachtown is close to all the excitement, attractions and restaurants in town. Check out local shops and dining at the Galveston Historic Strand District, which is about a mile away. Take your family and friends to Galveston’s Historic Pleasure Pier, which is right down Seawall Boulevard. Check out a local favorite spot, Flip Flops, enjoy a drink while gazing over the beautiful Gulf. 

These beaches hold regular events, one of the largest being the annual AIA SandCastle Competition at Apffel Beach every year in the summer months. Teams take months to come up with ideas and plan how they will build their masterpiece. On the day of the competition, teams are allowed five hours to make their creations come to life. These are not your ordinary sandcastles though. So, bring your camera to capture all the cool sculptures that are brought to life by the teams!
