Great Getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at this quaint townhouse. It was the perfect size for our group. We had 7 people. There was plenty of space in the living/dining areas to gather and we enjoyed sitting on the patio watching the ocean while we drank coffee and ate dinner. The house was very clean and came with everything we needed in the kitchen. The kids loved the assortment of boogie boards included with the house, along with all the other beach toys. Access to the private beach was phenomenal - and we didn't have to deal with crowds. It was a great vacation!

Awesome Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time on our Galveston "girls vacation" at Nancy and Brian's "home away from home." We could not have asked for more accommodating and friendly hosts, who saw to our every need (fully stocked kitchen and every beach item you can imagine or would possibly need) and were right on top of every request we had. We felt right at home and even met the people staying next door (who helped us get our beach umbrella more securely situated on a very windy day). Galveston has so many things to see and do, that we will have to come back and spend more time to do it all, and we will certainly stay here again! Thank you Brian and Nancy for being such amazing hosts and for taking such good care of us! You truly know how to spoil your guests. Until next time . . .

Fantastic Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was even better than advertised. The views are great and it's SO close to the beach and convenience store/restaurant. The host was very responsive and helpful, and they are setup perfectly for children. Our boys are 4 and 1 and had the time of their lives.

Winter Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family continues to stay here every year for our family vacation. We have young and older kids and we all love coming here and look forward to it every year. The location is great and away from the touristy seawall and the beach is beautiful. Nancy has thought of everything for your stay and makes it so welcoming every time. We are very much looking forward to our stay this summer. Thanks Nancy!

Owner's Response: Thank You! I really enjoy meeting our guests. I am so pleased to know you are returning for more summer fun. What is so nice about renting our Townhome is some families have come for 5 years in a row and I see how their children have grown. I was told by a person when she was taking her small child to daycare, the child said "Let's not go to daycare but straight to our Beach House." They did return the next summer. Summer will be here soon. i will be ready for you.

We loved this rental even before seeing the second floor. You can be in the cool A/C and enjoy the view of the Gulf. Watching the cattle roaming in the field across the street will show city dwellers another part of Texas.
