  • Amazing place, minus the mosquitos

    "The house was amazing, the resort amenities were top notch, the scenery was beautiful, the fishing was great, and the owner/manager was the best I have ever dealt with. Seriously, the BEST! Her attention to the small details was off the charts. The house was very well stocked and clean, and she was always ready and waiting with an answer. I wish all of the owners I dealt with were like her! The only knock on the place were the mosquitoes. They were bad....like terribly bad....like in order to get to your car you had to run and hope you only got bit 3 or 4 times. I know that this issue is out of the hands of the resort and the owner, but I wish I had known just how bad they were. From what I heard from the folks in the area, there are times when they aren't bad, but unfortunately we weren't there at that time. I would strongly advise any renters to come very prepared for them, i.e. sprays, bands, even the machines. I will add though that if you stayed on the balcony porches, they didn't bite you. That was a plus. I should also add that they weren't bad around the pools and on the groomed beach. Getting to those spots bite free was the challenge!"

  • Excellent Everything!!!

    "This has been by far the best and now our favorite beach rental. Ted & Brenda have a beautiful home that is very well taken care of and very comfortable. They really have thought of everything. Location is awesome, not only proximity and view of beach but also close to town for stores and dining. We loved the downstairs just as much as the upstairs with the hot tub, bar-b-q pit, picnic table and privacy from street. It was where we spent most of our time hanging out enjoying the cool breeze and beautiful view of the ocean. We have nothing but wonderful things to say about this house. We will be back and we will also be letting or friends and family know about it too. Thank you guys for a wonderful and memorable weekend."

  • Best Beach Rental Experience

    "We decided at the last minute that we wanted to go away for a couple of nights with our family before the kids go back to school. I consider myself lucky to have found this property and we will definitely rent it again as well as recommend it to our friends. Suits Us is located in Pointewest Galveston in a quiet, and secluded area. We had everything we needed in this well stocked and beautifully decorated home. The owners have thought of everything. There are hammocks, beach chairs and boogie boards as well as a charcoal grill. The property is within short walking distance to the beach and also permits access to use the Beach Club amenities which include an infinity pool, gym, and cafe/bar. We have older teen aged children and this property had something for everyone. We all had a wonderful experience!"

Galveston Travel Tips

Galveston, a Texas coastal city on an island just southeast of Houston, is an excellent vacation spot for families, history lovers and those looking for a little rest and relaxation on the beach.

Family Fun

Moody Gardens

This stronghold of education and family fun is a mainstay on any trip to Galveston. Its main attractions are three giant glass pyramids. A towering Aquarium Pyramid with exhibits related to geographic areas like the South Atlantic, which hosts a penguin encounter, and the Caribbean - home to thousands of vibrant tropical fish. Head to the Rainforest Pyramid to see funky-looking free-to-roam saki monkeys and macaws, or see special science exhibits at the Discovery Pyramid.

After you’ve soaked up plenty of knowledge, see a 4-D film at the Special FX Theater, immerse yourself in an interactive film at the Ridefilm Theater, or head outdoors to bask in the sun on the Palm Beach lazy river and water rides.

Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier

The perfectly named Pleasure Pier is Galveston’s boardwalk, complete with rides, games and excellent dining options. Fearless big kids will love the Iron Shark roller coaster and Pirate’s Plunge, tiny tots will love the carousel and everyone can take part in old-fashioned carnival games. Head to Fish Tales or Bubba Gump’s for family-friendly dining.

Galveston Island State Park

This excellent 2000-acre state park is about a 25-minute drive from the city of Galveston. Come here to enjoy the quiet, sandy white beaches. Rare birds are frequent visitors here, because the Galveston Island is a unique, undeveloped barrier island habitat, so keep your eyes peeled for interesting species as you take a walk through on the salt marsh and prairie trails in the northern part of the park.

For the History Buff

Galveston is home to many excellent historical sites, several of which are located in the famous Strand Historic District, which encompasses the area between 20th and 25th streets near the harbor.

Historic Homes

Though the inside isn’t open to the public, if you’re an architecture buff, visit the brick mansion, Ashton Villa, located at the corner of 23rd and May Streets in the historic district and built in 1859. Take a tour of the lavish, castle-like Victorian mansion, Bishop’s Palace, built of stone and steel in 1892 and located on Broadway Street. You’ll also want to consider seeing the Samuel May Williams historic house, which was built in 1839 for its namesake and is the second-oldest home in Galveston

Ships, Trains and Planes

Galveston is also abundant in military and transportation history. Visit Sea Wolf Park at the very tip of Pelican Island to see two ships with military history: the Cavalla and USS Stewart. The Cavalla is a decorated WWII submarine that serves as memorial to the USS Seawolf, which sunk during WWII. The USS Stewart also served during WWII and is one of only three destroyer escorts in the world.

For an amazing experience, visit Pier 21 to take a ride on the fully-functioning tall ship Elissa, built in 1877.

You can also visit the Galveston Railroad Museum, located in the historic district at 25th and Strand streets. Kids are bound to love this excellent museum as well. Aside from some pretty cool locomotives, it features some fun statues sitting on old train station benches for a perfect photo opportunity. The Lone Star Flight Museum, adjacent to Galveston’s Scholes International Airport, is another great option with several impressive old planes both indoors and out.
