"We've been coming down to Galveston for over 15 years and this is by far, our favorite canal home! The owners are absolute gems, as well as the neighbors. We felt right at home during our week stay. Believe it or not, it was even pretty quiet over 4th of July weekend when the tourists are all in town. We were blessed to be able to see the fireworks put on by Pirates Cove community. We live in North Texas and this fireworks show was better than even we have up here! We had access to the pool and the tennis courts too at the country club which was really nice. I love that the owners allow the renters to use the bar-b-que pit and their kayak too. We had loads of fun! The house was perfect for the 6 of us. The 13 year old claimed the loft room as soon as we walked in. Needless to say, no one else spent much time up there since he claimed it. There is plenty of sleeping room for everyone! The house itself if perfect. Because the weather was so nice, we spent most of our time downstairs at the picnic table. We played games, fished and even ate down there. So peaceful! The kids enjoyed catching crabs too in the crab trap the owners let us use. Absolutely fabulous stay and we plan to stay here again on our next trip down."

"Villa Fontana is absolutely one of the greatest places we've visited! Our journey to Galveston this time included our parents, grandmother, and cousin. What a precious memory to see them relaxing and enjoying the view from the balcony! We all had a great time! Everyone was completely comfortable with room for everyone to sleep -- a large table for meals and family game time -- a comfortable, roomy living room and balcony to just sit and relax! We will definitely look to stay here again and definitely referring our friends and family!!!
Home Sweet Villa Fontana - relaxing beach oasis filled with memory-making moments! :)"

"We really enjoyed our stay here. Nice, clean, and a short 5 minute walk to beach. Saved about $20.00 per ticket to the water park which totaled $80.00 for our family by purchasing them at the club house. The kids enjoyed the pool and the owner is very friendly, helpful, and quick to respond with any questions we had. Would most definitely stay again in the future!"

The property manager was very helpful.
The vacation rental was spotless.
I was very happy with the location.
I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
Our rental home was the perfect match for our family! The bedrooms were very comfortable and there were plenty of bathrooms! Kitchen was awesome too! Was pleased with the large TV with blu-ray player and surround sound. We were initially skeptical about not being closer to the beach but it was so easy and only took about 5 minutes to drive there on a golf cart. I would highly recommend the Jack Sparrow rental!"
