Swarms of mosquitoes greeted us upon arrival. Would think the hundreds of frogs singing outside would keep the mosquito population down. So, make sure you bring your mosquito net or citronella candles to place at outside balcony and plenty of bug repellent. If it had not rained cats and dogs every day we were there, we would not have noticed that there is no internet connection and have TV Antenna with very bad reception. Having said that, the house was very comfortable, clean and met our expectations. Despite the weather, skeeters, and being "incommunicado", all and all it was a good experience and would be willing to rent the house again.
End of Summer Bash
We had 4 adults and 4 children staying 3 nights the weekend before school started. We had a GREAT time, if we had any questions a quick call or txt to Kathy and she responded quickly. The house has everything needed for enjoying a long weekend, plenty of room for everyone. The quick scroll down the road to get to the beach, was not bad at all. You have views of the ocean from the front porch table, which is where we spent majority of our time when we were not at the beach. We truly enjoyed ourselves and has already decided to make this a yearly trip. Personally anytime my family will be visiting Galveston, I will check with Kathy to see if their house is available. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us.
This was just what we needed
This home was a beautiful get away and was exceptionally accomodating for me, my husband and three teenagers. The deck and beach chairs were our favorite spot while we drip dried from the "after beach" waterhose shower downstairs. Inside, there is plenty of room to move around, lots of sleeping space and the beds were all comfy, even the bunk beds. (the teens agreed) There's also a variety of movies and games to keep them entertained in the down times. In the kitchen and bathrooms, lots of linens, toilet paper, paper towels, dishes and cookware, utensils. There's even handsoap and dish soap. I was pleasantly surprised to see the cabinets had the basic staples like salt, pepper, miscellaneous spices, sugar, cooking oil and spray and even a few dry goods. The refrigerator had slightly used condiments like mustard, mayo, ketchup, butter, bbq sauce, even Aloe Vera gel for the sunburns they knew we'd get! Whether it was supplied by the house or just previous tenants, THANK YOU ♡ In turn, I left a few misc items that can be used again. We stayed on the island all 4 days and will be back as often as we can. The ferry ride over was free and relaxing. Bring your groceries or you can purchase everything you need and MORE at the Big Store down the road. Pack your personal hygiene items, sunscreen and bathing suit, that's all you need! The beach is about a block away so bring beach toys and enjoy the R&R.
Mr. And Mrs. Graves, thank you for allowing us to enjoy your beach home.

Peace & Tranquility
We loved our stay for the 2nd year in a row. It will be an annual stay for us that we'll always look forward to.
The cabin was perfect for our needs. It was close to the beach and everything we needed was provided. We hope to stay here again. Thank you Todd and Kathy for sharing your beach house with us.
Nice Stay in a Nice House
We just completed a little over two weeks in the Peace and Tranquility house and it indeed was peaceful and tranquil for the most part. A little loud and crowded the weekend prior to the 4th but that is to be expected. There was a very nice fireworks display on the beach which was perfectly viewed from our front deck. This house has it all with one minor exception....the decor is pretty much non existent. Don't get me wrong, the house is nice and well equipped and maintained inside and out but there are no drapes and few pictures or other decor. However, the kitchen is newly upgraded with granite and good appliances. There are scads of utensils, and dishes. The beds and couches are comfortable with ample linens. The front deck is nice with a covered and shaded portion. The grill downstairs is huge and works well. The location is great with a short walk or cart ride to the beach and the neighborhood is generally quiet and friendly. This was our second stay with Kathy and Todd, who are very responsive and helpful, and we will be going back in the fall.
