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."

"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Somewhere in the Sun. Owner communication was great, and the house was well stocked and clean upon arrival. All the necessities, like cable, wifi, and all dishes and cookware was a major plus. The view from the third floor master deck was amazing, and it was a peaceful place to sit out and read a book and take in the breeze. The lower deck had a table for cards or eating outside, and there was plenty of seating. We liked the fact that the master was up and away from the two lower bedrooms, as the kids stayed down there. The dual air conditioning was great, and the master bath was an oasis, with a walk in dual head shower for a relaxing time after a hot day at the beach. We even had a friendly black bird who showed up for snacks throughout the day, and was a daily fixture. The chairs and beach toys were nice and provided the kids with things to do. The location is good also, with it being off the main roads and not too far from the beach at the same time. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it. They had a nice golf cart in garage, would be a nice option to rent its use for additional fee so renters could drive around area and to beach to drop items off."

"This is a great roomie beach house very close to the beach. All appliances work great! Best furnished kitchen I have ever seen, they had blender, crockpot, multiple pots, pans etc. house sleeps 8-10 easily. Porch is great as is parking. You have enough silverware ,dishes, tables and chairs to seat and feed 20.
They AC works well and there are fans in each room. Internet works well.
Only downside is there is a house being built directly in front of the beach house . There is still a good view of beach from porch, just alittle. Alittle noisy during the week from construction. We loved Pirate Beach."

"Had a great experience! The unit was fresh and clean. Great location to a variety of fast food and dining restaurants. The unit is exactly the way it is shown in the photo. Also, the property is very family friendly. I look forward to returning in May 2015.
