Wonderful experience

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in your beautiful comfortable home. Not only was the house a good experience but also the neighborhood and neighbors. The lady directly behind the house was so kind and offered a toddler swimming pool to me and my grandbabies it will be memories we will share for a lifetime.

My granddaughter is already asking when will we return to OUR beach house :).....The location was close enough for us to enjoy all the pleasures of Galveston

I would definitely recommend this House and I plan to return in the future

Everybody was comfortable and had a great time

  • 5 of 5

The wifi was nice to have. We enjoyed the grill, but the grilling plate prob needs to be replaced. The kids enjoyed riding the bicycles that were provided in the garage. Overall I enjoyed my stay, thank you for having us.

Enjoyed it!

  • 4 of 5

I'd definitely rent this house again. Loved how each bedroom has it's own window AC unit to help bedrooms stay cool. That way you can close the bedroom doors and still enjoy the living room. You are able to get Houston's KPRC Channel 2 on the TV, otherwise you need Netflex or Amazon Prime subscription. Plenty of room in the living room, I actually slept on the couch and found it comfortable. And you can bring your pets too!

Perfect place to stay on the island!

  • 5 of 5

By far, the best place to stay at on the island. Walking distance to the beach. Plenty of room in the house to lounge. It was comfortable and clean! And we got to bring our dog! Plenty of space for our family of 5, with room left over. I'm definitely staying here again. As often as I can. My family loves coming to Galveston and this place feels like home away from home. The owner is great! Very accommodating. She answered all of my questions right away. I'm so glad I found this gem!

Comfy Beach House / Good Location

  • 4 of 5

After spending every summer vacation in Galveston for 35 years, we decided this was the year to try a beach house with our entire family. Our first impression after arriving from a long days travel was very disappointing. The house was dirty and HOT! We kicked on the AC which you can't set below 75 degrees, and cleaned out previous renters fridge leftovers and bathroom toiletries. I put away the laundry left in the dryer and found dirty dishes in the dishwasher. The AC window unit in the 3rd bedroom was busted (with a sorry note attached). The window unit in the master worked loudly. The box fan for bedroom #2 did help lull our grandson to sleep. The sofa and loveseat are very comfy! The black recliner has nice bits of vinyl peeling off that we covered to stop our grandson from picking them off. There is only actual bed spaces for 7 people. The 8th person would have to sleep on the couch. The top bunk in the 3rd bedroom is very difficult to sleep on, especially in a hot bedroom. There is no cable or wifi, which was disappointing.

However, the big upside is the owner!!! I contacted her very early in the A.M. with these issues, and she contacted me immediately! She discovered her housekeeper had failed to prep the beach house for our stay, and refunded us a portion of our deposit.

The bottom line is this: while it is a comfortable enough place to stay and the owner is FANTASTIC to work with, we will probably check out another place next year.

*The beach access in this area is AMAZING!

*Some great places to eat: Jimmys on the Pier, Fishtails, The Spot, Cajun Greek, Mesquito Cafe, The Black Pearl (just a few!)

*Definitely try out some of the GREAT bakeries!!!

*Check out the Pleasure Pier, too!
