  • Great Location

    "My Wife suggested a family trip to Galveston so I immediately came to VRBO to find a house. There were 8 adults and my 5 month old as well as my two small dogs. The 2 biggest things that made this house spectacular are the AC units and the Water Heater. I have no idea what the make and model is, but within just about 2 minutes of turning on the AC, you could feel some nice strong COLD air blowing in and cooling off the house. The upstairs has it's own separate unit that works equally well. While either trying to shower or wash dishes, we had HOT water within 30 seconds. It got hot quick. Now for the other bits. Kitchen: Nice and spacious. Open floorplan. There were an adequate number of plates, cups, silverware, etc. The appliances were nice and all worked. Living room: Also open floorplan with seating around the walls and a small coffee table in the middle. Downstairs Bedroom: Ceiling was a bit low compared to rest of house, but otherwise plenty of room for the bed and other things. It's right off the dining room. Upstairs bedrooms: The beds were all nice enough for something that isn't "your bed". The rooms were all ample enough for all of our things. Bathrooms: While the bathrooms were big, there are only 2 of them. So with 8 adults in the house timing was important. It helped that we were all family so nothing ever got awkward. Overall, it was a great place to stay. The whole time it felt like we were at some relatives house. Just a nice family gathering at a nice warm place. Location: This was about the best part. We were able to walk the 0.3 miles to the Pleasure Pier. Sure that's a real touristy place, but it was our first time to visit, so overall nice. Driving to any of the beaches OR the nice shopping part of the Strand is maybe 5 minutes. so even when you have to drive , you still aren't going far. About the only thing not close to the house is a supermarket. BUT, since it's not like we were making constant trips, just the first one upon arrival, it really wasn't that big a deal. Overall: We were all very happy with our stay, and if we ever go back to Galveston, this is a place we would want to stay at again."

  • Beautiful Home-Close to Everything!

    "We stayed at The River House for our annual Comal River trip this year. The house is just beautiful and a perfect size for our family. We could tell the house has been completely updated, it even had an awesome outside shower, complete with hot and cold water, privacy fence, a clothes rack, and even a mirror. Several of us took advantage of it! It was located very close to everything, even within walking distance to the tube shoot on the Comal river. We really enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again."

Texas Travel Tips

Seeking the thrill of the Texas frontier? Come visit the Lone Star State for a crash course in Western heritage and hospitality. It boasts a diversity of terrains, from the Panhandle Plains to Gulf Coast to Big Bend Country, and tons of things to do from touring NASA’s Mission Control, sampling the indie music scene in Austin or exploring American landmarks like the Alamo. Whatever Southern flavor you’re looking for, Texas is sure to have it. Here’s a glimpse of Texas' top cities:

Houston

Houston, all systems are go. To launch off your visit, explore the world-famous Space Center, home to NASA’s Mission Control. The center features astronauts training for the International Space Station, a behind-the-scenes-look into deep-space missions and the latest pivotal technologies in the exploration of Mars. You won’t be able to miss the Museum of Fine Arts, the largest in the Southwest, which for starters showcases two gallery buildings whose walls are covered in artwork from all over the world. The collections highlight pieces from Africa to Asia to Latin America, although it is best known for its European Impressionist paintings. Stay dry at the Downtown Aquarium as you step inside a 17th century Spanish shipwreck, learn about the Louisiana Swamp and stand in awe in front of the Sunken Temple of ancient Mayan civilization. The white tiger exhibit and Ferris wheel rides are also a must-see. Cap your evening off with a savory taste of Texas tacos at local favorites like Pistoleros on Westheimer Street.

Austin

As the capital of the Lone Star State, Austin is a hotbed for music and culture. If you’re here in October, be sure to check out the Austin City Limits festival. In March get blown away by South By Southwest (SXSW), a nonstop party of music, interactive displays and film festivals that takes place every spring. Without a doubt these fests are among the reasons Austin has been declared the “Live Music Capital of the World.” For local flavor the rest of the year, stop by Stubb’s Bar-B-Q for finger-lickin’ barbecue and musical acts that have featured artists like Cake, Ratatat as well as George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic. The Red River District is the place in town to hear indie and alternative sounds pouring out from the bars. With Ladybird Lake cutting through the heart of the city, there is biking and kayaking to be had. Riding through scenic paths along serene lakes on the Town Lake Hike-and-Bike Trail is a great way to get your bearings in this mix of college town and musical haven.

Dallas

The biggest urban arts district in the country can be found in Dallas. It is a 19-block spread of cultural rejuvenation that will leave your creative side drooling. If you haven’t had enough, carve a slice out of your day to visit the Irving Arts Center, which is a premier theater and outdoor sculpture garden. Keep the history reel running while you take a trip back in time at the Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament to watch knights joust. Your older kids will leaping with joy after a trip to the Zero Gravity Thrill Amusement Park. If you’re picturing a more relaxing time for you and your travel-mates, take a stroll through the breathtaking Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens, which was ranked the 2013 “Top Ten Botanical Gardens in the U.S.” by the Travel Channel. Top it all off with some tasty treats at Dallas by Chocolate and Dallas Bites for unbelievable chocolate and Bar-B-Q burgers.

San Antonio

As Texas’ (arguably) second-biggest city behind Houston, San Antonio has plenty to offer. Tour through the legendary Alamo, lose yourself amidst the peaceful San Antonio Botanical Gardens in Brackenridge Park or climb along the natural beauty of Enchanted Rock as you trace the footsteps where Native American warriors were killed - or at least so the legend goes. The River Walk is always a hit. It weaves across San Antonio River with dozens of restaurants, sidewalk cafes and street performers to make this Texas’ No. 1 attraction, according to U.S. News and World Report. Trying to get your John Wayne strut on? Fire away at San Antonio Western Shooting, a safe and excellent experience to handle real guns and bullets. No prior instruction is needed. If you need a break after your adrenaline shot to new Wild West heights, take a seat at the Majestic Theatre, a movie theater built in 1929 and a classic landmark of the city. It even has a domed ceiling covered with clouds and stars.

Fort Worth

Put on your cowboy boots - or at least pick some up - because Fort Worth prides itself on its Western heritage. Check out the Texas Civil War Museum that displays the largest private Civil War collection west of the Mississippi. Country music stars perform onstage at Billy Bob’s Texas, the largest honky tonk in the world. Kids will love the Fort Worth Zoo, a superb destination for the whole family to catch a glimpse at lions and monkeys. If you want a legitimate reason to say “it’s not my first rodeo,” head down to the Cowtown Coliseum on the weekend to watch the rides of lifetime. For shoppers, Fort Worth has everything from authentic Western gear to modern shops for every budget. After grabbing a few gifts, hit the Cantina Laredo for delicious Mexico City-style food, or Del Frisco Double Eagle for a juicy steak. Swing by the Fort, it’s worth it.

Discover your rugged side in the Wild West, where Texas hospitality lives on.
