                            The house was very nice, interior and exterior as advertised. The fenced yard was also nice for our dogs. However, 5 block walk to beach was on busy road without sidewalks. The satellite television had only local channels and the television in the living room was linked to the receiver in bedroom and would not work independently, so you had to change channels for living room in the bedroom and watch same shows. In spite of an hour on phone with dish tv, couldn't get it to work. Also, owner or manager left notes stating that you only had 1 roll of toilet paper per bathroom, 1 roll of paper towels, and before you left, to strip the beds and carry all linens and towels downstairs to laundry. Also stated that hot tub was not included in rental and not to sneak and use it. This is the first time I've had this type of limitations or instructions with a rental house - basic clean up and toilet paper is usually included in rental - this attitude was not very welcoming. Also - every room had air fresheners blasting out scent every 20 minutes or so. It played havoc with allergies and was overpowering. We cleaned up our linens and scooped the yard, and in spite of an email to the manager, have not heard back regarding the refundable deposit. Honestly, would look for another rental next trip.

                            Good location makes for a 4 block walk to the beach or a short drive to The Strand. The house is wonderful with lots of room to gather or have your own spot and a really nice back yard and balcony area with plenty of seating for all you outside activities.

                            Recommended for: Romantic getaway, pet owners, sightseeing, age 55+, families with teenagers.

                            El Flamboyan House was excellent. It is a beautiful home, well maintained with everything you could possibly need for a home away from home. There were six of us during our stay and we all agreed that the house was incredibly comfortable and homey. I brought my little dog with me and she had plenty of space both in the fenced yard out front and out back to roam around and explore. The house is within walking distance of the sea wall and the neighborhood was very quiet. I highly recommend this rental.

                            Recommended for: Pet owners, sightseeing, girls getaway, families with young children, families with teenagers, adventure seekers.

                            Our stay was far more enjoyable than we dreamed. The house was clean, organized and no expense or comfort was spared to make it a true home-away-from-home. We took our 16yo son who had a great time in his own suite up stairs. There were two other bedrooms we have in mind to use when we come back in December- MIGHT envite family. The yard had a BBQ, hot tub that seats 8 and seeing the "before" pictures in the album made this house only that much more interesting: this family has taken it from ruin to riches! A very nicely done reconstruction. The soul of the house remains, though and it is a very special place. The mom and daughter who care for the residence were helpful, friendly and a joy. We are so glad we chose this special property!

                            Wonderful property with everything you could possibly need for a home away from home. This place does not feel like a typical vacation rental. The kitchen is more than fully stocked with every pot, pan, dish and utensil you could need and the appliances are top of the line for real cooking. There was even a wine cooler. Plenty of space to spread out throughout the house and back yard. If you are inclined to stay indoors, there is a television in every room with cable and dvd players. The location is perfectly centered between the beach and shopping. We will definitely be coming back, but with all that room we will be bringing more family with us.

                          Year Purchased: 1992

                          About: I've made Galveston, TX my home for 30yrs. I've raised my children here and have made my life in this small but big-hearted island community.

                          Why San Jacinto District:
                          This has been a family home for 20 plus years. The kids are out and the home has been renovated and updated to fit the needs of vacation renters.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          I enjoy listening to the catholic church bell ring on Sunday mornings, the call of the seagulls during the summer and to the gulf as it stirs and the waves crash. My children enjoy being able to walk to the beach as they have for many years and if you have an active family like ours even walking all the way to The Strand while looking at the old Victorian Homes of the East End District. We enjoy good old fashion barbecuing. We also enjoy walking up to the Seawall to watch the Mardi Gras parade pass and throw some beads. Many things are to be enjoyed in this vacation rental but more than that it's the time spent doing what you like with the people you love.
