Guestbook comments from the manager

We love going to Galveston, and the place we stay is " GulfBreeze#1" we have stayed twice here and the location is within walking distance to the Sea Wall and Beach! We stayed in the bottom house and our good friends stayed in the top rental! Lots of remodeling has been done and is now so much more accessible for handicapped people like my husband. We love the landlord too, she is very easy to do business with!! We will definitely go again! Thank you for a wonderful place to stay!! See you next year!

Disappointing, like camping with a roof!

  • 2 of 5
We stayed here with our extended family for my nephew's wedding. Being a vacation rental owner myself, I know the details, expectations and needs of vacationing families. We rented both levels of the house. It was clean and was just 1/2 block from the seawall/ beach area where we could walk to many restaurants and the Pleasure Pier. The view is obstructed by 2 old buildings, one is a shop and the other an abandoned unkempt building . The decks were pleasing to relax on when the sun was warm enough. We were there the first week of May and nearly froze our first night there. There were no blankets or extra covers of any kind to use so we had to go to Walmart and purchase our own. The sheets and pillow cases were mismatched and very old. The mattresses on the bed were soft and the beds made lots of squeaky sounds. Come prepared, there was no bath soap, no paper towels, no laundry detergent, and no basic condiments like salt and pepper. There is Wifi . The upper level has an odd layout in which you have to walk through one of 2 bedrooms to get to the kitchenette and into the bathroom.The couches are newer and comfortable.It would have been nice to have a dresser since there are was only 1 closet per level. The upper level does not have any kitchen seating. With the amenities available, it is overpriced.

Owner's Response: The cleaning lady was supposed to have used newer matching
linens which I do have instructed her to do so along with
leavinging plenty of soap,toilet paper and cleaning supplies.
I have hired a New Cleaning Lady to take care of this house now!
This will insure that the future renters are well taken care of.
I have also instructed the New Cleaning Lady to leave plenty of
fresh clean & new blankets!

Gem of Galveston

  • 5 of 5
I wanted an inexpensive place to stay by the beach for a quick weekend get together with my kids(24 and 19). What a little gem this house is! Is obviously an older house, but the inside is not outdated and very well kept. If not for the building directly across the street, you would have a completely unobstructed view of the beach! But you will still have that "beachy" atmosphere as the view on either side of the building is wide open.

The deck is very nice, but we really didn't get to take much advantage of it because the weather was not cooperative. Was a little chilly and very windy. You're within walking distance (half mile to mile) from Pleasure Pier, and we actually enjoyed our strolls along the beach even beyond that. Did our morning run along the sidewalk next to the beach.

We were there for Mardi Gras weekend. Holy cow! Everyone was jacking up the posted price on their website! I didn't know that MG weekend was a big deal in Galveston til I started looking for a place. But Diane's price quoted on her website was exactly what we paid. What a great deal!

Had a little issue with getting the cable to work, but the residents downstairs (who have rented from Diane several times) kindly came up and tried to work with it, and when that didn't succeed, they got in touch with Diane and she immediately came and got it working. (We still had a few issues, think there may have been a loose connection somewhere because we finally got the cord situated just right so that it would work. Was really a non-issue though!)

I did have to contact Diane to remind her about refunding my deposit (possibly because I forgot to pay my deposit separate from my rental), but less than 24 hours after I contacted her, she had the refund processing through my Paypal. Things are bound to happen and issues come up, but she always responded very promptly. I highly recommend this house if you are looking for a nice, comfortable, reasonable place to rent by the beach in Galveston. Diane was very easy to work with.

Great house for traveling with 2 young kids!

  • 4 of 5
Upon our arrival late at night, the owner had turned on the interior and exterior lights, which was a nice touch. The house was clean, not cluttered, and an ideal solution for us to stay with our two kids (ages 3 and 1). She also had the A/C on so it was comfortable in the house as well. The rental contract, payment, and check-in was easy! The patio out front was very nice, and my husband and I spent a lot of time out there after the kids went to bed listening to the ocean. There is a view of the Gulf from the patio and living room window. There were tenants who were renting the upstairs and we barely heard them except for the occasional movement. The street is quiet too and there is parking in front of the house on the street. The living room pic is not current. It still has the two sofas but now has a daybed as well. It is not crowded though. We borrowed a playpen from a friend of ours (as we used to live in Galveston) so that was perfect for the one year old. We did need to use the heaters as a few nights the temp got pretty chilly outside. They were easy to use and heated the house well. The bathroom is very nice! There were ample linens, towels, and extra blankets. The beach is within walking distance, maybe a block away. There are lots of restaurants and the Pleasure Pier is within walking distance as well. The Seawall is 1/2 block away. The only thing that would have made this house better would be to have had playpen for the baby to sleep in and unfortunately there was no toilet paper so my husband had to run out and get some. We had an amazing time and would definitely stay here again!!

Beautiful and Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5
I must say that this was the best vacation I have had in a very very very long time.
The house was very nice and comfortable. It was convenient to restaurants and shopping and best of all, the beach. We did not have to drive anywhere except the grocery store and that was no too far away (just up the seawall). Evenings were beautiful and mornings wonderful as I could sit on the deck and sip my coffee.

We will DEFINITELY be staying here again.

Would highly recommend this property for summer vacations, weekend getaways etc. We just went for summer vacation, we so enjoyed the location....walking distance to the beach and many restaurants! The house was in excellent condition, very comfortable and clean. We so enjoyed our time there at the Gulf Breeze house....perfect spot if you have children and teenagers!

Activity and Interests

Car: recommended

Beach area at end of 10th street is called Poretto Beach. You can fish, swim, BBQ, it is just another smaller beach area, well maintained with umbrella and lawn chair service. It is really nice just to sit under the umbrella with the cool shore breeze and watch the kids and grown ups play and the birds... anyway that is what I love to do to de-stress!

Also, walking distance to Stewart Beach (betweem 7th & 2nd Street)! No charge since you can walk there! If you drive there in your car it is $8. per car.Stewart Beach is one of Galveston's premier family beach parks.The park features umbrella and chair rentals, volleyball courts, an outdoor pavilion with an elevator, snack bar, souvenir shop, restrooms and showers. Lifeguards staffed on this beach from Easter weekend to mid September. Security is also present during this time. “Family Beach” environment where alcohol is not allowed. Also Stewart Beach has a Community Room for company parties, wedding receptions, family reunions, and other special events. Outside catering is permitted. ( I have the contact information if you are interested)

Also, just a couple of streets down, drive on free ride! Take a Free Ferry Ride back and forth from Crystal Beach and watch the dolphins jump and play in the channel. If you do not want to wait in line in your car, just park up front in the free parking and walk on. It is a 10 minute ride there and back and there is a top deck up high that does have air conditioning.

The Strand is always a great retreat from the beach! Eat at a restaraunt there in the port and watch the cruise and other ships go in and out.

Gaidos is open, it is the oldest retauraunt in Galveston, and on the Seawall.

Rainforest cafe is near 61st with the volcano erupts nightly every 30 minutes.

Only 10 blocks down is the NEW PLEASURE PIER which is a Carnival on a pier over the Ocean!

Fishing available from the rock jetties (free) and Fishing Piers along the Seawall (charge?)

One of mine and visitors alike is to rent a bycicle, (they are all along the seawall) and ride up and down the Sea Wall which has gorgeous ocean views and people watching!
