Guestbook comments from the manager

The house in beachhouse was PERFECT! Loved the two seperate living quarters so the kids could stay up late and we could go upstairs and get some rest after the day at the beach. It was also nice to be able to get up and make breakfast without waking everyone up. It is also decorated so nice and the outdoor patio was like another living room only outside. We also enjoyed playing all the games you have there the kids loved watching the old Disney movies. I guess the only problem was the kids fighting over which room they wanted, but all agreed nobody was the loser in that battle. We will be in touch soon.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay. It was close enough to the beach that we walked each day. Dana was wonderful at making sure we had everything we needed for our stay. The house has so much space that we all had plenty of room to sleep and move around. Thanks again Dana.

I rented this house for my wedding weekend back in December 2015, as a place for me and my bridesmaids to get ready and take pictures. It was beautiful and spacious and made for a wonderful time. We took pictures inside and out and the house made for a lovely backdrop. The location was fantastic, only a few minutes from the church we got married in and only a few minutes a way from Galveston entertainment. Dana was awesome to work with and very responsive! I would 100% recommend staying here.

My friends and I got together in this house to celebrate our engagement. Loved the house! Was more than enough room, and a very convenient location. If we come back to Galveston we will definitely book again!

Amazing home exactly as described.

  • 5 of 5

We were in Galveston for or son's wedding. This house was perfect for our whole family that ranged in age from five to 59. We loved the back patio and actually had a small rehearsal dinner one evening. The house had everything we needed and Dana was a wonderful host. If we are ever in Galveston again we will rent again in a heartbeat.
