"Just wanted to tell you how wonderful our experience at Shangri-la house was for our family. My sister and her husband along with my husband and I came to Galveston for a relaxing vacation. The house was appealing to us because it had 2 bedrooms with king sized beds in each which was perfect for us. When we got there, we felt like it exceeded our expectations. It had beautiful spacious rooms. It was clean and well maintained. The kitchen was well equipped. The view from the deck was so lovely and we loved sitting outside, drinking our coffee and visiting. Clean,beautiful neighborhood and wonderful private beach. Just an excellent place to stay and we can't wait to go back. Thanks for allowing us to stay in your awesome beach house."

"The house is fantastic and clean. Exactly what I expected, and a little more!! The ocean view is great..we loved watching the waves from the deck, walking along the beach in the morning and at night! (we filmed some crabs running around at night on the beach - eeeehh! fun). We ate at Marios Pizza across the street from Pirates' entrance. Hello. Yummy. Cozy inside too. The pizza owner was really nice as well. The neighbors are really nice and the neighborhood is pretty quiet which we liked. The beach wasn't too crowded & if you get up early for the sunrise it's breathtaking & spiritual. It's the perfect beach house & WE LOVED IT. So much in fact that I'm booking it again tonight. Have Fun! :)"

"This home was great for our family vacation. It was so wonderful to be able to walk to the beach! The wagon, sand toys and boogie boards were perfect for the kids. The kitchen was well stocked and having laundry available was a bonus. The huge deck was awesome! The owners were also great to work with. If there was anything I would change it would be to have things like toilet paper and trash bags available in large quantities. Of course we bought our own groceries but it seemed like such a waste to buy a box of trash bags when we would use only a fraction. Since we are out of state we could not take it home with us. Also it would be nice to have a DVD player/DVD selection and a bigger stock of games for those rainy mornings. Again, since we flew in from SD it was not practical for us to bring those things with us."

"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."
