"We recently returned from our stay at Somewhere in the Sun! We loved it so much we don't no where to begin to write our review. First it was not a beach house but a BEAUTIFUL home, so welcoming, clean and well maintained. The kitchen was big and equipped with anything you might need and with the open floor plan everything thing seem stress less! The master bedroom was wonderful and an awesome master bath!!! The balcony off the bedroom was fantastic with a view of the gulf! The location was perfect, two blocks from beach, close to a small shopping center with a pizza place, fish market, general store and across street a gym! Neighborhood was quiet and a great place to ride bikes along with an ice cream truck coming through with treats! Fun for all ages! Lila made the rental very easy and stayed in contact with us thru the whole process. Galveston is an interesting island, however just staying at Somewhere in the Sun is a relaxing carefree vacation on it's own! We can't thank Lila enough for sharing her home for our vacation! We look forward to returning and hope the home will be available."

"Property is GORGEOUS and well-maintained! Plenty of space for several families. Easy to get to the property and the Seawall. Short and easy walk to the private beach! Will definitely plan another stay!"

"We were 3 generations of family, all adults and the house fit our group. The downstairs worked fine for the singles in the group with bunk beds and a futon. It would be perfect for kids ages 6-15 as it could double as a playroom - lots of room with a private bath. The house is a short walk to the beach and you can see the ocean from the balcony. The kitchen was well stocked with a large refrigerator. Always a plus! The family room is not huge but they have maximized the space well with lots of comfortable seating. Being pet friendly was one of the major factors in choosing this house. Loved that we could bring our dogs. The owners were very easy to deal with and communication was prompt. We would choose this house again."

"On a whim, my wife and I decided to take a weekend trip to Galveston (from Houston). Selected this house because of its location away from the overwhelming hustle of the eastern end of the island, its close proximity to the beach, and the shops and restaurants (including the County Club!) just a minute away.
The house is clean, bright, airy, and beachy--exactly what you'd want and expect from a beach house. Also had wi-fi and a hot tub. In other words, the house had everything I needed.
The beach is a quick walk down the road. Because of the residential location, the beach is quiet and clean.
For lunch, we headed to the country club, which is a one-minute drive from the house. Not surprisingly, the food was great. Surprisingly, it was also pretty cheap--definitely not something I expected from a country club.
Overall, couldn't ask for a better house. My wife and I were extremely pleased with our weekend. We definitely recommend it!"
