Great family rental

  • 4 of 5

Owner is very easy to work with. This home was perfect for our extended family with 6 adults and 2 children (and a baby, who slept in her own pack & play). The beds were all clean and comfortable and there were plenty of pillows and blankets. It's in a lovely neighborhood, convenient to the beach and the strand. It's very nicely updated and mostly clean (silverware in the drawer was dirty but fit in one load of the dishwasher). The appliances in the kitchen were sparkling clean, as were the bathrooms. There were lots of dishes, silverware, pots/pans in the kitchen and towels in the bathrooms. The kitchen was stocked with a roll of paper towels and new sponge, as well as dish washing cleaners. Hand soap was provided in the kitchen and all bathrooms. We didn't spend much time outside--the landscape was beautiful and the grass was lush (though very long--half the front yard was mowed Saturday morning while we were there but nothing else was). The pantry and cupboards in the kitchen needed a thorough cleaning. These were minor issues for us and we would definitely stay here again.

Beautifully located!

  • 4 of 5

It was nice having enough space for 8 people to gather together to visit. It was also nice having enough space we could spread out to not intrude when needing privacy. It was nice being near enough to enjoy the beach daily without having the constant traffic of being on the beach. There were some housekeeping issues which were taken care of quickly by staff. We notified management of a couple items needing repair or maintenance. I would stay here again if we revisit Galveston.

Girls Weekend In Galveston

  • 4 of 5

The seven of us girls had a wonderful time staying at this house. The owner is very flexible and easy to work with. The house is very lovely how it is decorated with the Nautical theme. It is very homey. This is the second year that we have rented it and I would definitely do it again.
