About Amber Berend

I grew up in Beaumont, TX and met my wonderful husband at Texas A&M University. We are raising our 2 kids ( 9 year old son and a 7 year old daughter) in Houston, TX and they keep us busy and entertained!

Amber Berend purchased this house in 2011

Why Amber Berend chose Galveston

We bought Seas the Day as a peaceful retreat to enjoy with our children whenever possible. We have created wonderful family memories.... playing in the waves, shell hunting, star gazing on our top deck ( we don't see many stars in houston!), bike rides and even some rowdy tetherball and horseshoe tournaments to name a few! :)

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with our house because of the great location (quiet, cul de sac street in the wonderful subdivision of Pirates Beach) along with the amazing view of the water and being able to walk to the beach! It's such a cheerful, cute home that always makes me feel relaxed and happy!

Fun cabin a block from the beach

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. It was just the right size for our smaller family, and it had everything you would need for the beach. It is located about a block from the beach, but is still very close to the beach. Plus, the beach does not have any cars on it. We will definitely be returning.

The property was very clean and all in working order upon arrival.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent the whole of March in Galveston staying at Seas The Day; we loved it.

The house was very clean and inviting upon arrival and we found all appliances to be in working order.

The furnishings are very complete. Towels and linens were very nice and in good supply. Bedding, beds and pillows were very comfortable and we found we could rest comfortably, peacefully and secure.

We commend Amber for the care she extends to her guests and in particular our month long stay. We had no issues with anything during our stay. We found this rental to be an excellent value and would recommend it to any and all.

We fell in love with Galveston and hope to return again some day. We will definitely be checking to see if this property is available we return.

Thank you Amber!

There are no doubt worse homes than this one in Galveston but this was the worst we ever stayed in.

  • 2 of 5

Not a comfortable chair or couch in the house. Living room furniture all needs replacement. One bath in living quarters is ridiculously small. You must go outside to use second toilet (which we had to clean upon arrival) in carport area. A partially private outdoor shower is in carport which completes the "2 bath" claim. We didn't use that shower. Outside decks well-appointed with chairs/tables. Overall house neat and clean . Beds comfortable. Because of furniture/ bathrooms would not recommend more than 4 people stay here. Overall you can find far better for your money in Galveston (with better views too!).

Owner's Response: Hello! Again, I'm so sorry that you had a bad experience and I'm thankful that we were able to discuss the issues you faced in more detail and come to some resolutions. We usually do extensive repairs in the off season and this February we took your advice and purchased all new living room furniture! We made other improvements to the home as well, including new bedding, interior paint touch-ups, a new toilet and more. I updated our listing information to make it as clear as possible that we have one bathroom in the home along with a half bath and outdoor shower downstairs. Thank you again for your feedback! Amber

Fun time at this little house

  • 3 of 5

Over all this is a good property. We stayed there for the Lonestar Rally in November. There was some mix up with the cleaning schedule so the cleaners were there upon arrival but we didn't mind waiting a few minutes for them to finish up. What we were disappointed in was the cleaning job wasn't done very well and the previous people had dog(s) which meant there was dog hair everywhere (including on some of the dishes in the cabinets). I don't hold the owner responsible though because she admitted that the previous tenants had not disclosed they had a dog. The house it self is sufficient. It is older but in working order. We had 5 (2 couples, 1 single) in our group. It was a good size for that group but anymore and we would have been cramped. We loved the outdoor shower and used it often since the weather was great during our stay. We appreciated the location (close to town & beach). We spent some time on the beach each day. We appreciated that they have a wagon for hauling items down to the beach. The top deck would have been better used if there were chairs up there instead of chaise lounges. We spent most our time outside on the lower deck. Over all it is a good property with a good location. Just a little more updating inside and a deep clean and it would be a real gem. On a side note: we did speak with the owner about the amount of hair/dirt in the house and she agreed to refund our deposit for cleaning. This was much appreciated and I believe the owner is truly trying to make it right.
