"The Bad - Mosquitos in Galveston at that time of year are plentiful. Certainly not a knock on the house itself but I wanted something negative to write.
The Excellent - Everything else.
- The Management. Dealing with Karen was a pleasure. She was prompt with replies and our deposit. We have rented though HomeAway before both for Galveston and other locations and I am glad we found her there.
- Location. Being a long island, there is always some downside in our opinion to any location. Near town puts you near activities but away from nice beaches. This location made the downtown activities within a reasonable distance while providing a great beach location.
- Accommodations - My wife and I rented the home and invited our two daughters and their families (five children with four of them being five or under.) The house had enough bedrooms to give us space yet main rooms were large enough that we could intermingle which was the goal of the trip.)
- Ammenities - TV, games, beach toy, cookware and dishes were plentiful. We would have loved to use the porches but as mentioned the mosquitos are bad in early OCT. The proximity to the beach was great.
Since we rent a place somewhere in Texas once or twice a year I looked up their other properties as possible future locations. Unfortunately they look to not be of sufficient size for our needs as I imagine they are nice like this place and as mentioned I liked working with Karen. Not sure when we will return to Galveston again but I see us as returning to this house some day in the future."

"This is my 3rd or 4th stay at Coveside and every experience just gets better. My best friend and I had the best time. We relaxed on the deck, fished and hit the Boardwalk (4) miles away!!! So convenient.
Megan was absolutely amazing before during and after our trip! She called and found us a market to clean any fish we caught, recommended awesome restaurants. Renee texted to make sure we made it to the house and check to see if we needed anything. The customer service is always outstanding!!!
The house is comfy and close to everything.
I was hoping to fish at night by dock lights. There is no "fishing" light, but we still managed to catch fish our second night!! So much fun!!!
I really love this place and travel over 10 hours from West Texas to stay here."

"This was a lovely place!!! WE had a terrific time. The house was clean and spacious. We enjoyed the views from the deck morning, noon and night. There was plenty of coffee! Lol. The owners were kind and helpful. The neighborhood was quiet and spring break was relaxing for both of us!"

"I stayed here with my husband and two kids and we absolutely loved it. This condo was beautiful with a wonderful view overlooking the ocean. It was in an excellent location close to all the attractions. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone. The resort itself had tons to offer and the H2O pool and bar was a nice cozy place to hang with my husband after hours."
