"I was a little apprehensive about vacationing in Galveston because of word of mouth and other popular beaches a few hours away. However, I booked this Bayfront Home during August, and I was extremely pleased with the house and the island.
In addition, I wasn't sure this particular property would be nice because there weren't many recent reviews, but the house turned out to be wonderful! Both the property manager and the owner were very nice and informative.
The house was clean and had a few spots that were being treated/worked on (nothing bad). Our refundable deposit was also given back to us very promptly!
Our group was 8 adults and 4 kids and we were very comfortable. The kids loved the pool table, ping pong table, foosball table, and fishing the stock pond directly out the back door! The house had plenty of pots, pans, utensils, and other such things. The location is on the west end of Galveston (about 20 minutes), but very much worth the drive to get to a nice quiet, well kept area.
You could walk to the beach (about 1 mile) without crossing the main road for those wanting to get exercise. This was accessible through a cart tunnel near the property. The club house was very close, as well as the lazy river. We went to both the club house pool and the lazy river area on separate days for a few hours, but spent most of our time on the beach.
All in all, I would highly recommend the Bayfront Escape to anyone looking for a great house in a great location! I am already looking forward to booking our trip at this same property next year."
