  • Perfect Wedding House!

    "My husband and I had our wedding in Costa Rica but came home and had our wedding reception in Galveston. After searching for the perfect house, we finally decided on this one and we are so glad we did because it was perfect for us! Plenty of room for everyone, we got beautiful pictures, and the pool was so much fun for the kids. I would say that the tv's could be updated but honestly, we didn't really have time to watch tv anyway haha! Either way, we had a great time and we will most definitely be back again!"

  • 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."

  • 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!"

  • Above and Beyond

    "There was an electrical problem our first night in the house that no one could have expected or planned for. Ramona was right there taking control and fixing the situation as quickly as possible. Her reactions along with her beautiful, comfortable house, made our stay wonderful. We made so many great family memories and our kids enjoyed having their own rooms. The kitchen was well stocked, the beds were comfortable, and we found a new board game that we all enjoyed and already had to go buy for home. Every address we plugged into our GPS was 3-4 minutes from the house, with the exception of Moody Gardens and the State Park. You can't beat the location. We can't wait to go back."
