Where does someone go for vacation from San Diego? ---- Galveston. It's a cool place. Space, lots of things to do or just relax and enjoy the Gulf.

Great Location in a Comfortable House

  • 5 of 5

We just finished a great week in Aloha in the Sands of Kahala and will try to stay again on our next trip. The house is well laid out and gives each group privacy when it is time to retire, but also a great central gathering area when it is time to eat and be social. The beach is just a few steps away and for this visit we were blessed with zero seaweed. The house is just minutes from the Sea Wall so getting into town to do things is really easy.

There were some minor annoyances, although they were not really the fault of the house itself.

- TV & Internet service would lose signal a few times per day (Uverse issue)

- Previous guests have messed up some of the pots & pans

- Need to wear shoes on walk to the beach because of stickers.

- Some trash cans are missing lids so the birds and other critters made a mess picking through the previous guests trash

We've spent time at many Galveston beach houses over the years, and this one is certainly ranked in our favorite list.

Beachfront and close to town.

  • 5 of 5

This large house has a nice beach just steps away from the huge decks. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped. Everything works. Has a large washer and dryer.

Kroger, Wal Mart and numerous restaurants are just a few minutes away on Seawall Blvd.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Perfect is the only word needed. The house was amazing. There were 10 of us and we had plenty of room and loved being able to sit around the table for meals. Loved sitting on the deck for our morning coffee and pelican watching. Would recommend this property to anyone wanting a beach vacation.

Beautiful home and location

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Loved the closeness to the beach, the balconies to take in the magnificent views and the overall atmosphere. Well equipped home, and close to stores to get any items forgotten. Great home for large families like ours. A few very minor issues but nothing major. Wish there were no sticker burs in the yard...impossible to walk to and from the beach barefoot but easily solved by cheap flip flops to wear to the beach path. Overall...A+ rating.

Lovely home, nicely equipped and maintained, right on west beach, but close to seawall

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time here. The owner was super responsive through out the booking process. The location of the house is ideal for us - right on the beach, and close enough to the seawall and restaurants and groceries stories for easy access... yet far enough away (a couple of miles) to be quiet and peaceful. Other than maintenance people cleaning the beach or emptying trash we didn't have cars on the beach (yeah!). Sea shelling was pretty good - I got quite a few undamaged specimens. Beach is flat enough for some good exercise too if you want to walk or jog.

The furnishings in this house are nice - especially the leather L-shaped sofa. The separate recliner matches and is comfy too. The main TV screen was big and has a really nice picture with lots of channel choices and the Wifi speed was plenty for us. There are TVs in the bedrooms too. Excellent choice of pots, pans, knives, etc. in the remodeled kitchen. Beautiful granite and new appliances.

Lots of things to recommend this home.

DO pay attention to the letter the owner sends you about what to bring. You need to bring, or go out and buy, your bars of soap, shampoo and paper products. There was enough toilet paper for the first day or two but not enough for our whole stay. You will want to buy paper towels and tissues as well.

A big unexpected plus was the lovely selection of "one teaspoon at a time" packets of spices and salt and pepper packets in the cabinet. And the collection of condiment packets in the pantry. There were also some K-cup coffee choices in the cabinet above the K-cup Coffee machine. We brought our own filters and coffee and used the traditional machine more...but one guest liked the K-cups.

We would definitely stay here again!

Kellogg Reunion Friends

  • 5 of 5

This was a great beach house on a great running, walking and biking beach! Amazing sun rises and sunsets the views were so great. The house had all the amenities required to stay in a home for multiple couples or families. We especially enjoyed the 2nd story balcony for coffee and cocktails. Kitchen area was well stocked for gourmet style grilling and dinners. Living area was great for large group to enjoy game night with old friends as well. Thanks!

Did you ever try to swim in the Pacific Ocean in the summer? It's cold. You won't need your wet suit to swim in Galveston waters. Warm, yet refreshing.
