Galveston is a great place to take a vacation. The proximity to the ocean, combined with the wonderful weather, makes it a premiere vacation destination in the United States. One of the things that can bring you down when planning a vacation is your lodgings. Many are tempted to go the easy route and book a hotel or resort room, but we are here to offer a better option. Vacation rentals provide vacation housing with the freedom of your own home. Don’t be cramped in a little hotel room when you can book an entire Galveston house rental.
Freedom to Choose
The best part of a Galveston vacation home rental is the freedom to choose things like meals and events more freely. One of the biggest budget worries about vacation is the cost to eat out constantly the entire time you are on vacation. Restaurants are not cheap and that cost adds up quickly. With a house for rent in Galveston TX you have access to a fully supplied kitchen to use at your disposal. Instead of going out to eat you can stop by the store and pick up a few items and make your family dinner. You can also teach your kids to make fancy meals as a family. The Galveston house rentals really gives you options.
All of our houses for rent in Galveston are amazing, but we have a special place in our heart for the ones with game rooms. These homes are typically really popular with our guests. They can utilize the game room as a fun day that won’t break the family’s budget or use it to wind down after a long day. There seems to be a calming effect to enjoying a game of pool or watching a movie on vacation. Our Galveston homes have designed their game rooms to do just that, compliment your vacation with another amenity that will enhance your whole vacation experience.
Feeding the Crew
Your Sterling Realtors Galveston house rental has the space to hold 10 or 12 family members, depending on the one you rent, and the expense of eating out every meal can be prohibitive for this large crew. Fortunately, the spacious and fully equipped kitchens in our homes make it easy for multiple chefs to move around comfortably; all you need to do is stop by Arlan’s Market at 513 Market Street to pick up a few food items, and many of your meals can be prepared right there at home!
For the times you do want to head out and experience the local cuisine, you might want to start with one of our favorite breakfast places: El Jardin Mexican Café at 413 24th Street. Featuring Mexican standards such as breakfast burritos and chorizo dishes, as well as the standard American fare of bacon and eggs, every member of your clan is sure to find something that satisfies their palates. Those with daring palates may want to sample the food of another island chain for lunch —the Hawaiian Islands—at Huli Huli Hut located at 312 19th Street. The shrimp po boy is one of our faves! Dinner with a view is the specialty of the house at The West End Restaurant and Sand Bar, 21706 Burnet Drive; the pecan snapper will be the meal you never forget!
Entertaining the Crew
Sometimes all the entertainment you will need is sitting around the fire pit with a glass of wine, sharing laughter, conversation, and memories with the people you have traveled with, but you are going to want to venture out occasionally. Galveston is a town filled with history, beauty, and fun, and since you’ve come all this way, it would be a shame to miss any of it!
Golf fans are sure to love the immaculately maintained beauty of the Moody Gardens Golf Course at 1700 Sydnor Lane, while other family members may prefer the Moody Gardens Aquarium Pyramid. There’s no law stating that those who vacation together must stay attached at the hip the entire trip—split up and explore!
Buy a piece of Texas history from the Collector’s Gallery at 2222 Postoffice Street, or pick up some surf and beach accessories from Southern Spears Surf Shop at 6026 Seawall Boulevard. Enjoy a romantic exploration of Galveston in a horse drawn carriage with Island Carriages at 2528 Postoffice Street, or discover the beauty of the bay with Captain Hal Newsome’s Airboat Tours of Galveston Bay from Jamaica Beach. It doesn’t matter where you go or what you do, just be sure to leave your Sterling Realtors vacation home and just do it!
Hotel rooms are cramped and leave no room for privacy. Splitting a room will show the most private parts of your friends and family. With a beach house in Galveston, TX, you can all get your own room and not worry about changing in front of friends or having to sleep with a weird uncle who snores too much.
