About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 14

Located directly on a secluded beach restricted from vehicle access, Mia Bella is a custom-built, family-owned home in Terramar Beach in the lovely West End of Galveston. Directly decorated by the owners, this home will leave your family and guests in tranquility and with ocean views from both inside and outside the house.

Sleeping up to 15, this house was made for family vacations and entertaining. It has three master bedrooms making it perfect for group vacations; three full bathrooms, and two private decks boasting of beach views.

Since you'll be able to step directly onto the beach and set up your things, the house also has an outdoor shower to easily wash away the sand as you enter in and out of the house. The kitchen and main shared area has stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops and a total maritime atmosphere that will welcome you at the kitchen while watching the beach.

In the living room make wonderful memories both day and night. After a wonderful day in the sun, take a seat at the couch and enjoy your favorite movie with a 42" HDTV LCD TV.

Parking available for four vehicles on a private driveway but of course you can park more in front on the private feeder road into the house.

If you ever want to leave the private beach for some sight seeing and tourist activities, you're less than 20 minutes's driving distance from Galveston's famous Pleasure Pier, Seawall, and Historic Strand. Our family personally loves The Spot for food and the Strand for beautiful sight seeing of antique shops, ice cream vendors, and candy shops! Post Office street also boasts a number of coffee shops and art galleries with works of art on sale. There is also a beautiful, boutique tea and coffee shop called Sugar Bean located only 10 minutes away driving.

Other features include:

About Pablo Arias

My name is Pablo Arias. My family have been coming to Galveston since we purchased our first family vacation home here in nearly 30 years ago. We have cherished this Island as a place for our family vacations for decades, and given the amount of time we have spent on the island we became Islanders ourselves, moving here officially from Houston several years ago.

Our mission is simple: We want you to love Galveston's West End as much as we do as a place for family vacations and getaways. We have been in the property rentals and management business for decades now and ensure every one of our customers gets personalized attention as needed.

Pablo Arias purchased this house in 2006

Why Pablo Arias chose Terramar Beach

While some houses have views, and others have the space, this house has both. The West End is home to some of the most beautiful sunsets on the Island and with windows on every floor and beachfront views, you'll get front row seats.

What makes this house unique

I live minutes away from all the properties and therefore for any emergencies or issues, you can count on getting help. We are not some property management company with contractors, we are a family who directly manage these properties and know the island well.

Magical Beach Getaway Home

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house from Pablo to bring my family together to celebrate my 40th birthday.

Pablo was so great to work with, sending out information on what to bring and where to pick up and drop off the keys. I really felt prepared and at home.

The house was the perfect size and set up for a family gathering.

The decor was so cute, the open living space and outside patio facing the private beach was so relaxing.

I love that we made such great family memories here and would stay again.

Fun family weekend!

  • 5 of 5

The house was neat & clean. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes & glasses. Loved the roll down shutters for the bedrooms. We had one issue with the back door and Pablo came out immediately and repaired it. They had lots of beach chairs that we could use on the beach and the back deck had lots of chairs so our large family could all gather and relax outside.

Great weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

The house had good space and the property owner was great. There were a couple small issues when we arrived, but he showed up immediately to take care of us. It was nice to have the owner close and he was very accommodating. The house has great proximity /access to the beach.

Family Spring Break Week

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time with my grandchildren and great grandchildren in this beautiful home! It had three queen bedrooms, one double, one bunk room and a futon open room at the top of the stairs. There were 13 of us and the home accomadayed all of us perfectly. We had front row beach view with a short walk to the water. Enjoyed visiting on the large balcony watching the waves roll in.

Will definitely want to return!

Perfect Beach House for our family of 12

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish this was a great rental for our family. Everyone loved the layout of the house , the beach front location, the amenities included with the house and the awesome views of the Gulf from the living room to the bedrooms, to the awesome deck off of the living room. Since our rental was in February we were unable to fully use the beach. We hope to be back in the summer months to enjoy the outside parts of the rental, including the beach. Tons of outdoor chairs, picnic table and short path to the beach. The only negative was the charcoal grill probably needs to be replaced. It was hard to keep the grill rack in place as it smaller than the grill and/or just doesn't fit at this point. Pablo and his wife were awesome and picking up and dropping off the keys were a breeze. Can't wait to come back and enjoy Galveston in the warmer months.
