                    We spent our Thanksgiving holiday in Galveston at Ikes Revenge, it was wonderful! We had plenty of space for all 8 of us and enjoyed the very comfortable and well equipped accomodations. There was a lot of cooking going on, the kitchen is fabulous. Comfy sofas, flat screen tv's and 3 decks - we enjoyed it all! The beach was beautiful this time of year and the weather could not have been any nicer.

                    Recommended for: Girls getaway, families with young children, sightseeing, age 55+, families with teenagers, tourists without a car, adventure seekers, romantic getaway.

                    Manager response: Thanks Heather. I'm glad you had a fun time. The beach is so pretty in the off season. They are cleaner and hardly any people on the beach. It's my favorite time of the year to be down there.

                    Ike's Revenge is a little slice of beach heaven! My girlfriends and I stayed for the weekend and it was not long enough, we truly did not want to leave. The house is so adorable, definitely the nicest beach house I have stayed in. The decor is flawless, warm, and inviting. We felt we were at home from the moment we stepped foot inside! The house is very well kept! You can tell everything is newly renovated and kept very clean. The beach is right down the road, very short walk! We had a great time strolling along the coast taking in the beautiful weather! The house is also close to lots of great places to eat, drink, and be merry! We are already planning our next trip! Hopefully this time more than just 2 days! We can't wait!

                    Ike’s Revenge is warm, cozy, and inviting. The impressive décor flows seamlessly from room to room. The loft arrangement is really a master touch—it’s there if you need it to accommodate your crowd, but if you don’t, then it’s just quietly tucked above. This stunning beach house was the perfect home base for our Galveston getaway, traveling with two teens. Sunny Beach beckoned to us throughout the days (sunshine and a light, cool breeze is a hard-to-beat combo) and into the evenings. We also enjoyed spending time at Moody Gardens and the Strand. We had an amazing stay and I can’t recommend this property highly enough!

                    This is a beach HOME not a beach house. The decor is amazing and very home-like. You will find that you actually look forward to coming back to this house as much as you enjoy the sights, sounds and attractions of Galveston and life near the beach. Though not front row, the house has beach views and is a mere stone's throw from the ocean. It is well decorated and pleasing to the eye. My husband says " I could live here year round!". It is just adorable. You can feed quite a few with this large, well equipped kitchen that has all you could want or need. The deck is awesome. The loft is perfect for a group of kiddos (or playful adults!). Great master bedroom! Most importantly, the master has TV and can be darkened for great sleeping. Of course, the living room has a large flat panel television as well as a very comfortable couch. I give it 5 stars!

                    Manager response: Thank you Sheri. My sister is a professional decorator in Florida and I have to give her credit for doing such a great job. Just like your husband, I could live there year round too! Ron

                    This house is beautiful inside and out. More than enough room for several people and feels just like home. Beds were super comfortable! All you need in kitchen ware is included. Super nice upper deck for hanging out with the morning cup of coffee or the evening cocktail.

                    8 of us stayed in this beach house! It was roomy, comfortbale, absolutely gorgeous and the best getaway! The house is right on the beach & has a GREAT view. It is newly remodeled and has such a homey feeling. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you could possibly need, chairs to take down to the beach and huge deck for everyone to sit around on! This is a place we will go year after year. If you are looking for a great getaway for a family, friends, girls getaway or just a romantic vacation, this is the place. I rate this property A++++++ with 5 stars!

                    My family and I were in heaven - on earth. This beach-house experience was phenomenal. The beach was in walking distance and the beach-house was amazing. The restaurants, stores and rental places were in close proximity. As we relaxed on the decks of the house, which faced the beach, we could clearly feel the wind brushing against our faces, what a delight! This is one beach-house experience we will always remember. Looking forward to another adventure!

                    My family and I just spent 4 days/3 nights at Ike's Revenge. The house was perfect - everything is like brand new and the house is immaculate inside and out. The owner did not skimp on quality from the large flat-screen on the wall in the living room to the appliances in the kitchen to the furniture throughout the home to the beautiful hardwood floors - everything is top-shelf. The beach is just a short walk from the house (2-3 minutes), it's a small, clean beach and was never over-crowded. When you get back there's an outside footwash in the driveway and a fully-enclosed outdoor shower - very nice amenities to have especially with kids! There is a master bedroom with a King-sized bed, and another bedroom with a queen. Upstairs is a loft-type area with 3 twin beds - perfect for the kids; this loft overlooks the living room downstairs so you can hear what's going on if you need to! The bedding (sheets, comforters, etc.) are all very nice quality like everything else. The kitchen has plenty of dishware, utensils and pretty much everything else you need (even a Wok). We also used the charcoal grill every day; there was lighter fluid already provided although we brought Matchlight coals so we didn't need it. Anyway, to sum it up, we loved Ike's Revenge and wouldn't hesitate to rent it again. Kudos to the owner of this property for their attention to quality and cleanliness!

                    Manager response: I'm so happy you and your family enjoyed my home and your vacation. The house was named "Ike's Revenge" because it used to be on the front row and was damaged from Hurricane Ike in 2008. It was quite an adventure moving the house to it's current location and renovating it. I hope you will come back and enjoy Sunny Beach again! Ron

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About: I'm an overworked Realtor from Austin that can only relax at the beach. It's just a shame I have to drive 3 1/2 hours to enjoy my little paradise on the beach.

                  Why Sunny Beach:
                  I have been vacationing on Galveston's West End for 30 years. Same old 12 friends telling the same old stories over and over. I wouldn't have it any other way. It's our twice a year "Big Chill" weekend. Other than those two big weekends, I totally love my other times to the beach either just by myself or with a few friends. Galveston is truly a gem. There is so much history and fun things to do here. That's why I bought my house. It's the best of both worlds.....rustic beaches close to fun. Sunny Beach was my first choice because it's so easy to get anywhere......attractions, restaurants, grocery stores.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Galveston has become such a great culinary town. The restaurants are amazing. Get to know the local places. You will never get bored. Schlitterbahn, Moody Gardens, The Flight Museum, Historical homes, The Strand for great shopping, Golf & Spas are just some of the other things to do when not enjoying the beach. Also, it seems like Galveston has one event after another such as Mardi Gras, Dickens on the Strand, The Festival of Lights, Biker Weekend and more parades than any single town should have. Get out and enjoy everything she has to offer!
