Perfect for our short trip away!
We really enjoyed the house and watching the waves from the deck. I generally don’t sleep well away from home, but the bed and pillows were so comfortable I slept great both nights! The separate bunkhouse was perfect for the mix of us that stayed.
Thank you, I am so happy you had a great time.
A beautiful house
The house was very pretty and decorated very nicely. It was super clean also. We only stayed a weekend but really enjoyed the house and the beach!
So very happy you had a good time.
Great End of summer getaway
Nice house and location, helpful owner.
Nice quiet and quaint
Very much enjoyed our stay. Its like you have your own private beach. Its a great spot for crab hunting. Upstairs was great. Had everything we could have needed. Downstairs has a little smell but other than that worked out well for the teenagers. All in all a quaint little house.
It was my first time renting and it was awesome. The whole process went smoothly and without a hitch. Beautiful environment and the view was priceless!
We have great time
Good place to relax
If you are looking for a great place that is not over crowed to just relax and enjoy the sounds of the waves here it is. Travel back down the road to Galveston and enjoy all the island has to offer as well.
