Wonderful house and location.

We had a very relaxing vacation in this well appointed house. It was clean and in a great location. There was plenty of room for my husband and I, kids and spouses and grand children. We took daily walks on the beach and excursions to area attractions. Then home to a very comfortable setting.

Excellent beach house

  • 5 of 5
I rented the house to go on the weekend with some friends to relax and get away from the busy city of Houston and we had a great experience. We arrived in the evening on Friday and everything went as the planned instructions for arrival. The house was very clean and we loved the charm the house has! it is decorated very nicely!! The house is also very spacious and the two decks that it has are great. It is also just a short walk away from the beach. I would really recommend this house to anyone who is looking to enjoy the beach and relax!

Do not waste your money on renting this place. Its filthy. Lots of dust on everything. We had issues with the tv. The dish would not work. I understand problems happen, but the owner would not offer any compensation. We even asked and he wouldnt. So for 2 whole days we had no tv. He was rude on the phone. The owner did not come and wait for the dish people. We had to wait there. So we had to sit around for a whole day for them to come. He never even called to see if everything was going good. The seal on the outside door was shot, so when it rained the water came rushing in. All the screens on the windows were shot. Just please dont waste your money on this place. There is A LOT better places around the area to rent.

Owner's Response: All Interested readers should understand that the only part about the above review is that the cable modem went out. I did everything I could to get the technicians out, the tenant never indicated they wanted me to come out nor did I every request for him to wait. I told him to go about his affairs and that I would have the cable service come when it was good for him. At the time he had no issues with the time they planned to come out. It is unfortunate that this individual came all the way across the country to watch TV. There is so much more to do in Galveston.

Our home in Galveston has been visited by over 150 families who have had great experiences. I have 2 guest books with nothing but compliments to show for it. The house is in excellent shape and ready for your next stay in Galveston.
