Wonderful Beach House

  • 5 of 5
We rented this beach house for my mother's surprise birthday party and we had an amazing time. This was our first time renting a beach house in Galveston and everything exceeded our expectations. The house is amazing and comfortable in every respect. Beds were comfortable and linens and comforters were clean. The house is well maintained and well stocked particularly in the kitchen. The home also includes a pool table which our boys really enjoyed in the evenings. The house is beach front with stunning ocean views. We spent hours lounging on the decks watching dolphins, pelicans, seagulls, and flying fish. The sunrises and sunsets were beautiful and relaxing. The house is in a very quiet subdivision but was conveniently close to town. We also toured the island and the boys played a round of golf. The owners Les and Carol were accessible and pleasant. Everything was smooth and stress free and made for a wonderful experience.

Loved This House!

  • 5 of 5
Our extended family had a great stay at this lovely beach house. We've stayed at several beach houses through the years and this one was by far our best experience. The beach house is beachfront and has spectacular views of the ocean and wildlife from every room in the house. The beach is also secluded and safe, no cars are allowed on this beach, which was a relief because we have very young kids. The location is perfect because even though the beach is somewhat secluded, the house is only 10 minutes from town, which was very convenient for shopping, restaurants, and entertainment. We took the kids to the pleasure pier and the water park which they loved. The house is well-stocked and very well maintained, although we did have a blocked drain that the owner's maintenance crew cleared up for us promptly. The house was also spotlessly clean when we arrived, which was well appreciated because our past experience with some our houses we rented was that was not always the case. The house has some creature comforts including electric window shutters that blocked out light completely and enabled us to sleep late, a luxury for us. The owner was easy to communicate with and very helpful. We definitely plan to stay here again.

The best location in Galveston!

  • 3 of 5
We had a wonderful time on our trip to Galveston. Let me start out with all of the pros about this beach house.
Pros:
The location COULD NOT HAVE BEEN MORE PERFECT! It was just minutes from town, RIGHT on the beach. The neighborhood is very private and only has about 15 houses. We had the beach to ourselves most of the time while we were there. We drove around the area and confirmed that there is no other area that was nearly as nice. Most of the other neighborhoods had many more houses and were much farther from town. We went into town a few times a day and it was a quick and easy drive. The owner was very easy to get in touch with. We had an issue with a clogged shower and the dryer not working properly and he had repair guys out very quickly and had them both fixed perfectly within minutes. There is a LOT of covered parking, perfect if you have a large group. All of the tvs looked new and were in good working order. The beds very comfortable. The chairs on the deck overlooking the ocean were very nice for lounging. The dining table was wonderful and had lots of room for our large family. The kitchen has everything you need.
Cons:
This house basically is just in need of some general attention. The dust was really thick, especially on the fans and artificial plants, (those are almost impossible to keep dust free, I would probably throw them out). The living room furniture was very used and didn't recline properly. The areas that housed games and magazines really need to be cleaned out and reorganized. The bunk bed ladder is in need of replacing. The interior could use a fresh coat of paint. The pillows and a lot of the bedding looks very worn and probably needs to be replaced as well as the pool table felt. Overall, with a little more attention to detail, some basic maintenance and a few updates (especially in the bathroom fixtures), this house would be a 5 star house without a doubt!

Dirty, Unsafe, Dilapidated, Falsely Advertised

  • 1 of 5
We are two families - 4 adults with 6 kids under 4 - who paid as much money to spend three nights in this home as we did a week last Spring in Seaside Florida. One would think that price would guarantee you a home that has been cared for, but sadly the house is in no way accurately represented online, by either the pictures or the reviews. Yes, the view is awesome, and if you only sat on the plastic chairs on the porch and wanted to enjoy the ocean without ever going inside, you'd probably love this house. But, unfortunatey, after spending many months planning and saving up for this vacation, we left the property after the first night - and still do not have any response or refund from the owner.

The first thing we saw when we arrived at the house was a rusted knife wedged behind the power box on the pillar next to the key box, an indicator of things to come inside. When we arrived inside, we discovered the house was filthy. Immediately upon arrival one of the kids picked up a huge hairball/dustball. ALL the walls are scuffed and scratched. The light socket plates are literally rusted. Walls are chipped and appear to be rotting. The gas grill is approximately 95% covered in rust on the outside and 60% covered in dried food on the inside. The pillows have sweat stains on them, multiple comforters have stains of unknown origin on them. The bunk bed ladder is chipped, unattached to the bed on one end, and literally duct taped together in one spot. The dust on the fans and bed ledges and baseboards is so thick it's dark brown and can be captured with a phone camera; so much dust we became concerned about an asthma attack that would land us in the ER. In the morning there was a full size cockroach in one of the kid's shoe. There was another IN the dishwasher. There was some sort of large flying bug in the clothes dryer. One of the toilets only flushed intermittently.

The kicker, though, is that in the middle of the night, around 5:30 a.m. one of the blades on a ceiling fan which was spinning flew off the fan, hit the window (cracking it, see picture) and ricocheted to the floor. TWO YOUNG CHILDREN were sleeping directly under this fan. You can imagine our and their reaction to this episode.

This house was unsafe in multiple ways - unattended to the point of a flying ceiling fan blade and dust causing asthma concerns - nothing like what the pictures or reviews led us to believe it would be. This was the saddest beach vacation ever.

Great house, fun for a big group!

  • 5 of 5
This is a fantastic, beautiful property located right on the beach in Galveston. The house comfortably accommodated 4 families with children ages 8-12. The house is extremely well-maintained! Everything worked, and the kitchen is stocked with everything we needed to make meals and drinks for a big crowd. Some of our favorite things about the house that made it easy for a big group were:
HUGE upstairs deck with large comfortable deck chairs for at least 20 people
Large spacious common area with plenty of seating for hanging out
TVs in all rooms
Very clean!
Well stocked kitchen supplies, filtered water and ice maker in the fridge
Outdoor gas grill
Enclosed outdoor shower with hot water
PLENTY of hot water for a big group - we never ran out!
Very comfortable beds with nice bedding
Automatic hurricane shutters that acted as blackout shutters - great for sleeping in, even our kids slept in!
Close enough to all the Galveston activities but far enough down the beach that it was peaceful

Perfect house for families with small kids - we had a blast!!! The owner was so helpful and accommodating, answering any questions we had about planning our trip almost immediately via email. Great experience and fantastic beach house.... We highly recommend it!
