"We had a great time at this house. The view was great and as close to the beach as you could get. The price was also really reasonable for the location. There are bike paths everywhere and you can walk down to the beach club which is also really nice. I would recommend this house to anyone who is looking to get away. The owner also makes the whole process really easy. She is responsive, kind, and really cares about the renters."

"The condo was exactly as advertised. Very large and spacious and beautifully decorated. The amenities at Diamond Beach are fantastic. This was the first vacation we've been on with our baby, and there were a lot of things for her to do as well. We'll definitely be back!"

"Our family of 6 stayed at this house and we enjoyed it immensely! While the house itself isn't overly extravagant, it sure is in great shape, it is very family friendly and fit our four children ages 6-12 nicely! Our weather cooperated only 3 1/2 out of our 7 days, but we had a blast. We especially liked the Beach Club option that Pointe West has to offer...and we rented a golf cart for the week from Ric's and that was a BRILLIANT move...found some secret crabbing areas and took mini excursions all around the area.
Our kids brought their scooters and with the ponds out back and the handle nets we brought...they had a blast exploring. Thanks for great memories and an opportunity to escape reality!
(side note: our family did Moody Gardens, Pleasure Pier (get the day pass), Bishop's Palace (super cool) and USS Texas (worth the 50 minute drive to LaPorte if you haven't seen a Battleship)"

"My husband and I needed to find a pet-friendly home for our annual Spring Break with grandchildren and visiting foreign-exchange students. As we didn't have a great deal of time this year to travel, we looked for one within Texas. This "house" felt like "home" within a few hours of arrival. Everything was very clean and in good repair. The fenced yard was such a blessing for our two dogs. The lock-box code had been changed since we received our emailed instructions but a quick call to the owner fixed that issue. The owner was easily reached when a small issue arose and that is not always the case with vacation rentals. It was very reassuring. We had planned certain excursions for the daytime and even though it rained everyday that we were there, we did most everything we wanted to do. Galveston has so much to offer, from Moody Gardens to a "High Tea" to local theater and an indoor water park. The best part of our visit was the nights that we stayed "home" and cooked in the lovely kitchen and played games and laughed, laughed, laughed. We felt so at home in this lovely house. Rain did not dampen our spirits in this brightly, artistically and fantastically decorated house. The heater warmed the house quickly when we returned each evening. The bedrooms were all comfortable. I would recommend this house to families, to couples, for reunions and definitely for pet owners. There is plenty of space for group activities but also private space for everyone. How grand that there is a television in every bedroom. Our grandchildren did not want to leave! We do appreciate all the extras this property has such as close proximity to everything and parking in the back as well as street-side. We will return if we are able and will definitely stay at the Jewel of the Isle. Thank you sharing this beautiful home with us."
