Description

Once Upon a Tide is a very pretty, second row beach house in Spanish Grant neighborhood with great water views. Three bedrooms, two baths, will accommodate up to 10 people!

Great Views, Steps to Beach, Beautiful House, Great Rate! With Modern vintage colonial decor - a nod to Galveston's rich Victorian history - Once Upon A Tide is a little different from your usual beach house. Original antiques blended with attractive modern comforts make this a memorable, delightfully comfortable & attractive house. A second row home, only steps to the beach, there's great sea views from both upper deck and lower patio without the front row price. Wake up to morning coffee and sunrise over the sea on your deck or wind down and enjoy a glass of wine in the gentle breeze at sunset.

If you love making memories with family meals there's room for 12 at the dining table inside or feel the breeze as you BBQ on the charcoal grill and dine alfresco on ample picnic tables on lower patio next to the porch swing. The kitchen is well equipped for your needs.

The living room, with high vaulted, paneled ceilings reminiscent of whaling cottages of a bygone era is surrounded with windows giving 180 degree light and a bright airy feel. A home theater system with surround sound is installed above the fireplace so you can watch your favorite movies on Netflix, Hulu, etc, watch blue rays or dvds & listen to music from your phone, Ipod  or Pandora.

Pamper yourself as you slip between crisp white sheets in antique pillow top beds at the end of a great day enjoying the beach. The master bedroom has a queen bed (sleeps 2) & full en-suite bath including both a Jacuzzi tub and separate shower. Master bedroom also features Roku streaming television. The second bedroom has a queen bed (sleeps 2). Third bedroom is a children's loft, great for gaming (has Wii Nintendo) with two twin over twin trundle beds (sleeps 4). The living area also features queen size sleeper sofa with upgraded memory foam mattress.

Once Upon A Tide is located in the smaller community of Spanish Grant Beach.  Fewer houses affords a semi private feel to the beach and plenty of room for you to enjoy. It’s conveniently only minutes drive from activities at Moody Gardens, Schlitterbahn, Seawall, Pleasure Pier and grocery stores.

Whether you are looking for an interestingly themed cottage or merely a beautiful house with all the modern comforts, great views and steps from the beach you'll find it at Once Upon A Tide. There are three (3) approved public pedestrian pathways to the beach in Spanish Grant.  One is at the end of Spanish Grant Blvd. and the other two are at the east and west ends of Ventura. DO NOT enter the beach at Buena Vista dunes or by cutting through private property to access the beach.  Parking only allowed on beach side of the road on Buena Vista.
