  • So clean it even impressed my Polish mother!

    "My parents (who are 80+ years old), my husband, our dog and I recently stayed at this property to celebrate our son's White Coat Ceremony at UTMB. In addition, we had other family members stay around the corner at the Sugar Shack and its downstairs unit which are other properties managed by Ron and Tony. Between the three properties, we had 12 family members and two dogs in our group. On check-in, Ron told us about all the great places on the island that are popular with the locals. We hit many of his suggested places and felt like we had a true insider experience. The location is perfect. It is within walking distance of many restaurants and two blocks from the Sea Wall, on a relatively quiet street. The cottage is immaculate and incredibly well-stocked. My mother (the clean queen) kept going on and on about how clean the place is, especially because it is a dog-friendly property. Our original idea was to rent hotel rooms at the Galvez. Renting the cottage (and the other two properties) ended up being less expensive and so much of a better experience. There are three wonderful areas to congregate in the cottage--around the dining room table (which seats 6), on the sofa/chair/bench by the TV, and on the front deck (which gets a fantastic ocean breeze and has a view of the Gulf). We so appreciated all of these areas in which different configurations of family members could comfortably relax and converse. Again, there are so many thoughtful details from the decor to the wine fridge in the kitchen (a favorite of my mother's). My only concern was the stairs up to the cottage. I was really worried about my elderly parents not being able to navigate the stairs. They related that it was not an issue--there are two very sturdy railings and they could easily hold on to both railings while ascending and descending the stairs. In addition to family time, the location is perfect for all sorts of activities. We ran on the Sea Wall, biked to the Bolivar Ferry, took the dogs for walks on the beach, walked to Shy Cats (a restaurant with amazing French toast)... It was great that so many different groups could do so many different things without having to worry about transportation. We often stay at VBRO properties. I agree with a previous reviewer that this is one of the best places we have stayed for its location, price, amenities and space. We can't wait to go back!"

  • amazing

    "Our families had an amazing time. The house we rented was the perfect size for the 11 of us. It was close to all things we wanted to do. The property had all of the things that we needed to make our trip memorable. We will definitely be returning to galveston in the future"

  • Great for big family!

    "OK so you will not have privacy but this house was SO much FUN for our family get together! There was a large dinning table with lots of gathering room around it. A great kitchen stocked with all the cooking utensils, dishes, pots, etc. you could imagine. Very well stocked home as I am sure the owner uses it when it is not rented and she does leave her things. This was helpful as we found a ginormous salad bowl for our big dinner. The men were happy in the TV room off the dinning watching the World Cup and the teens watched movies at night. We did walk to the beach (about 25 min walk) and same to the Strand. There were couches everywhere and we just had family hanging out all over the place but we were really all together in this home. We had such a great weekend the kids are begging to go back! The owner responded quickly to any questions we had and was extra nice. I felt the price was very fair."

  • FABULOUS CHRISTMAS 2014

    "We spent our Christmas Vacation here December 2014. It was the best place for us to be with all grown adults. We hosted an openhouse for friends and family and it all flowed so well everyone had an amazing time. Being so close to The Strand was perfect for all of us we did a lot of walking to and from The Strand as well as the convenient restaurants for Tex-Mex and Breakfast. That being said we did a ton of cooking in the PERFECTLY laid out kitchen. Thank you, this was an amazing house."
