Beautifull Property with an AMAZING balcony and even better owners

  • 5 of 5

I have used VRBO many times and this is by far the best property I have stayed at. I will start out by saying the owners are extremely friendly and helpful. They bent over backwards and went above and beyond our expectations to accommodate all of out needs.

The balcony is absolutely beautiful. I think we spent the majority of our time sitting outside enjoying the relaxing view. The pictures don't do it justice.

The kitchen is open looking out towards the living room which has a huge window that looks out over the ocean. It is fully stocked with anything you need and if you don't find what you need the owner will make sure to do her best to get it for you. There is a washer and dryer in the unit which was great.

Both bedrooms are a good size, decorated beautifully, and the beds are very comfortable. The bathrooms were huge and very nice. The master has a huge walk-in shower.

The unit was immaculate and felt like home!

Next time we head to Galveston we will not stay anywhere else. We liked it so much we even inquired about buying it. If you are headed to Galveston and you have the opportunity to stay at this beautiful property do not pass it up, you will not regret it.
