Stayed 5 days at the Seaside Village VRBO unit in Galveston Texas
"Hopefully this review is helpful. First off the place was very nice and clean. 4 adults, 1 teenager, and 1 small child. There was enough room for us all. Very convenient location to the beach and food.
The dryer did not work the entire time of our stay. I reported it on day 1 and was told someone would be there to fix it that day. I didn't see anyone come to fix it until our last day during check out!
Our freaking car got towed! to Houston! by H-town Towing Company. Arguably the lowest form of life on the planet. We were given a parking tag that turned out to be an actual sticker (as we later found out). We put our sun visor on one night and accidentally hid the ticket. If we were made aware that it was a sticker I'm sure nothing would have happened. The stickers were left in the condo because we arrived well after 5 pm. The cost to get my car back was over $300! I also missed my fishing trip scheduled that day.
Thankfully the property manager, bless her heart, took care of the entire situation. Her initials C.M. From what I understand she's new to managing this property and is making positive changes. I believe she inherited kind of a mess. Anyway she got me reimbursed for the tow and the cost of our 1 day fishing licenses the very next day. Check in my hand. We also received a few other very nice gifts from her. Basically, she saved the day. She also assured me that the despicable bottom feeders H-Town towing would no longer be welcomed to patrol the property being that they only seemed to tow away people who live there or guests. Great track record.
The community of people who live there are probably some of the friendliest people I've ever had the pleasure to meet while on vacation.
I highly recommend staying there just be sure you understand the parking situation and that the darn dryer is fixed."

"This property was everything we were hoping for! It was very clean, comfortable, easy walk to the beach, short drive to Galveston shops and restaurants. I received two thumbs up from every member of our group. We had 8 adults and 2 kids-18 mos and 3. There was a new Pack and Play and booster seats along with a substantial Disney movie collection for the kids. There were so many seating areas that we never felt we were on top of one another. The view was beautiful, great star gazing too! We felt like we had a private beach also! The next group was at least 50 yards from us! I am certain we will be returning in the future."

"My daughter and husband stayed in this condo. The decor was beautiful with some exceptional pieces of furniture. Morning and night were beautiful views from the balcony, specially the full moon. The beach was fun with great waves and a cool breeze. Our whole family had so much fun and did not need to leave and go visit any other attractions in Galveston . The owners were great to work with. We would love to come back for another vacation and reunion."

"This bungalow was just what we needed for our end of summer get away! Such vintage charm with many modern amenities! Had everything we needed and very homey! Kids absolutely loved the place .. The iPod loaded with all music genres & Bose sound system was a nice plus! One downside is it's on a very busy street and the area is still up & coming. I would not recommend walking to the beach from here due to busy streets and lack of sidewalks. Will definitely be back in the future."
