Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time! Perfect size for our family of 4 and the grand parents. The location is perfect. Having access to the beach and bay was the best of both worlds. We caught some great speckled trout in the bay. And with two kids under 8, we loved having access to the paddle boat, kayaks, pool, beach toys, etc. It was the perfect set up. Always something to do, but plenty of great space to just chill and relax as well. We'll definitely be back as soon as we can - and it will be for a longer trip next time!

Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been caregivers to my elderly and disabled father for almost two years with very little time to ourselves. From the minute we stepped onto the property, I knew it was going to be the perfect place for us. We just needed some place quiet and to ourselves with privacy to relax with no distractions. And we got just that. The neighborhood was very quiet and the house was perfect. We had brought all of our own food and I was glad we did because the nearest supermarket was in Galveston proper. We had everything in the kitchen that was needed and the house was clean and very comfortable. The wifi worked perfectly the entire time. The weather also cooperated and was beautiful and perfect. My husband fished every day and caught plenty of fish. The Crawley's and Sonjia were helpful and pleasant. We made several trips to the marina nearby to replenish bait and everyone was very nice. Ate at the bar one night and in the restaurant another night and the food was great both times. I wish we could go every weekend but too long of a drive from Dallas! We absolutely loved it and hated to leave. I don't know when we will have the opportunity to go back to Galveston, but we definitely will want to stay here again and possibly with family next time. The house is plenty big to sleep 10+ people. Needless to say, we loved it and enjoyed every minute of our time there and would strongly recommend choosing this house for a private getaway or a family/friend gathering. It was just what we needed!

Fish Fry!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time! The fishing light was great. We caught a bunch of speckled trout and had our own fish fry! Caught a few crabs too...The house was great round the clock , gorgeous sunrise with a nice cup of coffee, gentle breezes and even the rainy days were no problem, watched some pre-season Texans football and plenty of Astros games....and naps AGHHHHH naps! great outdoor seating both on the dock and deck. Loved the quick access to the beach. Thanks for sharing - it's a great house!

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time during our short trip to Galveston! This house was super clean and had everything we needed! The inside had plenty of room to accommodate the eight of us comfortably. The children (3,9,10) had a blast fishing from the dock and watching the huge fish swimming through the spot lights at night! Plenty of seating inside and out along with a very nice porch swing on the top deck! The beach is within walking distance however with a three year old we found it better to drive (the beach access is right across the street). Beaches were not crowded so there was plenty of room to spread out. I would definitely recommend this property! Thanks again!!

What a perfect get away! We spent Memorial Day weekend here and had a grand time. The home is very clean and is well stocked! The kids fished off the dock day and night, and the paddle boat was a big hit too! We spent the day at the beach and also played games on the expansive deck. We loved the swings and deck seating! You have every detail covered! Thank you for a great weekend!

Great shell finding, fishing, lots of activities in Galveston which is a 10-15 min ride, however there is a lot to do close by the house as well, great bird watching and sea life. Referrals on request
