About Sergio or Jennifer Pineda

I always believed that Galveston is a beautiful jewel in the Gulf. My home captures the tropical winds, views and comfortable warm weather in a city that has old historical charm, great entertainment, awesome seafood, and unique Outlet shopping.

Sergio or Jennifer Pineda purchased this house in 2001

Why Sergio or Jennifer Pineda chose Galveston

Imagine yourself in a Tuscan villa but on the water and within 45 miles of Houston. This home is positioned east to west so that amazing sunrises and sunsets can be admired from the deck and wide views can be seen from almost anywhere inside the house. It has a private beach area that does not allow cars and where you can access the water easily and safely. Jogging, walking, swimming, fishing and surfing are the local favorites but the renter can easily bring and launch a jetski, Kayak or hobby cat. With a rental of three days or more, you may qualify for a free initial membership to the WORLDVENTURES travel and benefits program. Contact Veronica at: 713 306 0889.

What makes this house unique

This home was built to provide enjoyment of views and weather all year round. It is one of the few homes where you will find a BBQ kitchen and table by the beach. There is plenty of open yet covered deck area so that views are enjoyable even on rainy days. Wake up to amazing sunrises, watch the moon color the water in silver shadows at night, teach your children the name of the millions of stars you will see at night and take them for a night stroll on the beach to search for shells and crabs. In addition, this house provides guests with the opportunity to sign up for free to WORLDVENTURE travel and benefits program.

The property was nice but we were there over New Years and there was a tv antennae with foil on it.

  • 4 of 5

The stay was good.... However it has been 6 weeks since the stay and we still don't have our deposit back. We left the property in good condition. I contacted the owner......he said it was Homeaway's responsibility. Help?

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review...Your refund was processed by Homeaway (a division of VRBO) should be in the same credit card that you used to book and it should be for an amount that you paid MINUS the fee that VRBO will charge. Homeaway has sent me confirmation that they have processed the refund back to you. Contact me again if you do not see it so that I may call VRBO. Since your stay, Xfinity by Comcast has replaced the cable box that a previous guest had taken, and there is 140 cable channels.

The house was nice but older and more ran down than expected . Has electrical problems lights flash off an on and plastic chandelier began to melt while we were there. Owners and cleaning staff will screw you out of your deposit . The cleaning crew said they smelled cigarette smoke in the house so charged more for cleaning . I am a non smoker and I know that no one smoked in the house it was just a ploy to keep my deposit. I would not roccomend this property for that reason alone . I could have rented a much better place for less money .

Owner's Response: This house is maintained by a professional company that verifies all issues....smoking is strictly prohibited and they will charge more for cleaning if smoke smell or pet hair or other allergens have to be is being renovated now...power surges are beyond control of owner and they do happen across the island in weather situations.

Was Okay

  • 3 of 5

Location was great as was the property from outside. But the interior needs to be better maintained. One AC unit didn't see to work, there were electrical surges making the lights flicker, leaky faucets, clogged shower heads, no blinds/curtains on many of the bedroom windows, and other minor issues. There were plenty of towels though. Overall the experience was okay.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your is currently being renovated. Electric surges are beyond owner control. These are common in the Island bc of the light company..not the house.

Great for a small wedding!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a small beach wedding. It was perfect! We had the ceremony on the beach and the reception on the deck. We had about 50 guests and there was plenty of room. The upstairs is great! The rooms are oversized with plenty of room to sleep and several bathrooms. Check in and check out were extremely easy. I have not yet received my deposit back but am told it is on its way (our stay was just over 2 weeks ago). The owner was very nice and even allowed us to look at the house a couple of times before our stay. He was quick to answer questions and very helpful.

Drawbacks to the house:

-Parking is limited...there is room for probably 4 or 5 cars. Since we had about 50 guests, we had them park in a parking lot less than half a mile away and walk down the wasn't a big issue for us.

-There is not a bathroom downstairs...this is a regulation for the city of Galveston so there's really no way around that.

-The neighbor. He was not pleased to find out we were having a wedding and let us know immediately! He is very strict about parking on or near his lawn. He wanted noise turned down by 10 pm (which is a Galveston ordinance). Those are both reasonable requests but then he sat on the beach with his fishing pole right next to our ceremony and only went inside once it was over. He also called the cops about the noise, but not until around midnight.

None of these were huge issues for us. I would definitely do it all over again and would recommend it to anyone else!

Great house loved everything

  • 5 of 5

This is a good house for a big family. We were so many and not once did we feel squished or bumping into eachother. Very clean house and loved the view! Sure will be renting out this house again next year.
