91 Dolphin Lane is located on a canal that connects directly to the Texas Intercoastal Waterway just two minutes away. (Note: the house has Freeport municipal water that meets all government standards, not the well water you may have read about in Surfside Beach.) You can relax with fishing and crabbing off the private dock. Catch the sunset from the back deck. Often you can watch dolphins swimming alongside the big boats on the Intercoastal Waterway. A 5 minute drive over the big bridge (great view!) puts you on Surfside Beach where you can drive your car right up to the waters edge and setup your family fun site. Galveston Island is 20 minutes along the beach road. Galveston Seawall restaurants are about 35 minutes away. The house has free Wi-Fi for email and web browsing and free satellite TV for entertainment. Small pets (25 lbs.) are allowed for an extra fee. If some of the days you want are marked taken on the calendar, please send us a message. Sometimes it's family or friends and we can move them to let you in.This house is not the typical sandy worn-out beach cabin. It is fully furnished and decorated; with all appliances except a dishwasher. We have city water, not funny tasting well water like many beach houses. NEW... we have added DISH satellite TV in the living room and two bedrooms. Also we have added a full size mattress futon in the living room that seats 4 and sleeps two in comfort. The house has two layers of siding plus new Pella double pane windows and patio door. This makes it very quiet inside when you shut all the doors and windows. Or open everything up and it feels like an giant umbrella at the shore. One bedroom has a Queen bed and the other bedroom has two twin beds. And kids can sleep on the two sofas. There are also two LuxuryLite Cots that can be used inside or outside.... sleep under the stars!The neighborhood is quiet and Dolphin Lane ends in a cull-de-sac one block away so the streets are very safe for biking, scooters, skateboards and walking. Mature tall palm trees rustle in the seabreeze while you relax on the front or rear deck. Each deck has a stairway. The home is a non-smoking house, but there are lots of shaded outside places to take a puff. The neighborhood is mostly homeowners and is very quiet and private. The driveway is so big you can park two 40ft motorhomes side by side, plus a couple of cars.The house has central air and heat and has lots of screened windows for those cool spring and fall days. The prevailing seabreeze blows straight into the front door and out the back door and windows. The kitchen and the living room have vaulted ceilings; and each has a big skylight that makes it feel like you are outside with the sun moving across the room making it bright and cheery. The front deck has two cushioned patio chairs and a love seat. Half the front deck has a roof for shade and the other half is great for private sunbathing or stargazing. The view of the Intercoastal Waterway from the front deck is entrancing when a big tug boat motors past or a fast deep-sea fishing boat skims by. The rear deck looks at the sunset and the private canal. The neighbors have fishing boats docked in their back yard! The dock has lights for night fishing.The owners Bruce and Debbie have run a Bed&Breakfast in Lake Jackson for years and we do all the maintenance and cleaning ourselves. We don't hire cleaning crews so no chance of bedbugs being brought in. Dolphin feels like home. We keep 91 Dolphin well maintained and spiffy so you have fun, fun, fun! Check-in is 3:00pm or later and checkout is 11:00am or earlier. There is an electronic combination lock so you don't have to worry about losing the key or driving back home with the keys in your pocket.
