  • First Class! You won't be disappointed!

    "This condo is excellent and the owner (Sherry) was great! I had several conversations with Sherry prior to renting the unit. She told me that the place was even nicer than the current pictures and when I got there, I have to say it was PERFECT! Completely updated with top of the line finishes and beautifil decor. I took my wife, two daughters, and my mother in law. We had plenty of room for everyone and plenty of storage for cloths, beach stuff, etc. The unit was extremely clean and ready to enjoy! If this unit shows as booked, you should call Sherry anyway as she has another unit which is just as nice, also direct ocean front! The Casa del Mar complex was very nice and well maintained! Great pools and covered parking! Very convenient to everything Galveston has to offer and directly across the street from the beach and fishing pier! You will love it, I promise! Thanks Sherry, can't wait to come back!"

  • Great find!

    "We rented this home for 3 of us college friends getting together for the first time in 26 years. The home was comfortable and a nice place to relax after visiting the local Georgetown area, Austin and Salado. The kitchen was well equipped, living room and outdoor area were lovely. The sleeping areas and bathrooms were comfortable. Everything seems to be updated and in working order. The owners are helpful."

  • Trip for the Family

    "This is a great property. Extremely clean and very comfortable. It was very easy to work with the owner to book the property. There was a total of 6 of us (including 2 kids) and we had plenty of space. We had a great time and look forward to hopefully booking this condo again for our next trip down. Note: The grill grates are located in the kitchen, if you are look for them."

Texas Travel Tips

Activities at Texas Beach Rentals

Texas's southeastern border runs along the Gulf of Mexico. It is one of the less populated areas of the state and a great vacation option. You can enjoy beautiful views that stretch out over the Gulf from Galveston beach house rentals or South Padre beach vacation rentals. There are many activities in the area including deep sea fishing, beachcombing and sailing. If you plan to visit the coastal regions, it is best to do so in the spring and early summer months when the weather is milder. It can be fun exploring the smaller coastal towns, and browsing antique shops and general stores for souvenirs.
