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.

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.

Lots of sleeping combinations are possible

  • 3 of 5

Stayed with 6 ladies which meant no bed sharing was required, the house can comfortably sleep 7 in queen, individual beds (or 14 if sharing). There are probably additional sleeping accommodations if you count daybeds, couches etc. Great beautiful private patio with lots of seating. The kitchen was lacking in most coking things, dishes ok, just make sure tou bring what you think you might need. IMPORTANT NOTE: the house is on two floors and there is no access between the floors except outside of house, front and back stairs. Not such an issue except if you are in your nightie or its raining, as it was for us.

Owner's Response: Sorry about the inconvenience of the outside stairs. We understand this can be a bit of a pain that is why we have that in our description. We will stress it more when we talk to renters in the future. Also please let us know what you were specifically missing in the kitchen and we will replace it. This is the first we have heard of that. We apologize for not having what you needed. We are about the do a full kitchen remodel after the summer season and will replace what is damaged or gone missing over the years. Thank you renting with us.

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

We had 9 woman in the house and were able to spread out and have a good time. This home is close to all attractions. We went shopping at the Strand, Moody Gardens, swam at the beach, Galveston State Park and took a dolphin tour. We were there a week and barely used 1/4 tank of gas! We were able to cook at home and eat out at nearby restaurants. The owner was super to work with, I would recommend this home to anyone going to Galveston.

Spacious house- great location!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for our annual girls weekend in Galveston. In the past, we have always rented on the beach or close to the water but wanted to try something new this trip so we found this house in the Historic East End. It was only about 8 blocks to the Seawall and minutes from The Strand and tons of restaurants. The house was just perfect for us- 7 queen beds and 3 bathrooms. Plenty of space to move around but cozy feeling for visiting and watching movies. The house has super high ceilings and beautiful crown molding in the upstairs rooms. And the owner, Dana, was a joy to work with- great communication and easy to get ahold of. We really enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend. Can't wait to come back.

Wonderful house at a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of ladies make an annual trip to Galveston every Spring and have always rented a house on the beach or close to the water. This time, we decided to try something completely different and rent a house in the Historic East End- new places to eat, different areas to explore. This lovely home is about 8 blocks off the Seawall and just a short drive to the Strand area and tons of restaurants and bars. The upstairs of the house has super high ceilings , rich crown molding and is beautifully decorated - there is the kitchen, large dining room with seating for 8, a den area with TV and movies, 2 large bedrooms and one bathroom. The downstairs has two more spacious bedrooms and another family gathering area with a large flat screen tv , a kitchenette with wine cooler and mini frig and 2 bathrooms. There was so much room to spread out but still be cozy enough to visit and catch up with each other. The owner, Dana, is a joy to work with and easy to get ahold of. We really enjoyed our stay and can't wait to come back. Thanks for sharing your home with all of us!
