Me and my family really enjoyed our stay at this house

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay. There were 7 people in our party and we had a lot of room. 3 bedrooms are on the 3rd floor. The master with is on the second floor with an attached bedroom but you need to walk through the master to get to it. It worked great for us since we have a 10 month old. The ground floor level is not accessible to guests. Only con I could say is there are approximately 10 steps to get down to the beach with no handrail. The photos looked like to me that the deck went right out to the beach without stairs. I should have looked closer as that is my fault. My elderly mother needed assistance to get down to the beach. We would rent the house again.

Just okay

  • 3 of 5

Our family of adult siblings and spouses rented this property for five nights.

Pro's-- Excellent location close to town and directly on the beach. The decks were very nice with ample space; decks and house had comfortable furnishings, TV's in every room; nicely equipped kitchen. Grounds were beautifully landscaped. Lots of parking available. Spacious rooms--we did not feel crowded.

Con's-- House showing age--lots of areas in need of paint, repair, maintenance, or cleaning. Towels were provided, but were paper thin and many were stained--gross. Barbecue pits were old and rusty/ gas grill would not light. Burned out light bulbs, toilets that did not work properly, doors that would not lock, dusty AC vents. Overall, because of the condition of the property, our group did not feel it was a good value for nightly rental rate.

Owner's Response: It's a beach house in Galveston. Even though it's quite nice and the only beach front rental with a 2,000 square foot deck and direct beach access, it is certainly not the Taj. The gas grill has been replaced with a new Weber. An inspection of the towels and linens noted no issue. All guests are provided the owner's cell number should an issue arise during their stay. Lydia W. didn't call ??

Fantastic Home - great for large families!!!! Love love love all the porches, if we were not on the beach, we were on the porch!! Nicely stocked kitchen made cooking easy for our crowd. This really is a lovely home. We will definitely check for availability on our next visit to Galveston.

Breathtaking Views - Beautiful Home

We celebrated a birthday with family and friends. The house was beautiful and comfortable. Sitting on the decks, walking on the private beach, and visiting was memorable!

A great weekend. Very nice home!

  • 5 of 5

The home was well furnished, comfortable and roomy. It opened up to beautiful panoramic ocean views. Easy access to the beach via spiral staircase in back which led to a large deck and down the sandy area. Modern appliances and décor. Cable including HBO and Cinemax, WIFI internet and TV in each room. We did notice there were speakers on the outside deck, but we could not make it work, but it may have been a good thing, considering how much fun we were having. I would definitely rent this home again.
