We are on the west side of the island and only minutes from the Strand and Stewart Beach.

Great House

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time here. John/Deirde were a pleasure to work with. Everything was exactly as pictured. Very clean, wifi worked, and was in a great location. The downstairs room was very convenient and we made use of the fishing light and the outside tv. We would recommend this house to a friend. Thank you for letting us stay and enjoy your home.

Cool Canal House

  • 5 of 5

Great beach house for family and friends. It made for a perfect little vacation. We love to fish!! The balcony and lower deck provided an excellent place. It was clean and well kept. Both of my children wanted to stay longer. Nice kitchen area, large enough for two cooks to pull together a grand dinner and an awesome breakfast.The owners were great and satisfaction was top priority. I would recommend this beach house for sure. this was exactly what we needed. We truly enjoyed our weekend. Looking forward to our next beach house visit.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed staying at this cute home. It was nice having the upstairs separated from the downstairs for privacy. The people who wanted to stay up late fishing stayed downstairs and the early to bed early to rise group stayed upstairs! We really made use of the outdoor tv to entertain us during night fishing. My kids totally enjoyed the downstairs game room! It was all I could do to get them to stop playing and go to bed! We did walk the 4 blocks to the beach once but since we wanted to take chairs, towels, coolers, etc., the rest of the time we just packed up the car and drove. My family is already asking when we will be headed back there - thank you for a lovely family vacation!

It was a very nice property and nice upstairs main house.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay to just relax. Upstairs area was great and had Satellite TV, Wifi. Restrooms upstairs were great and clean. Now the only downside was the downstairs room and playroom. As soon as you open the door it smelled like mold or something similar... it was a very pungent smell, there was no way anyone could stand being in there, much less sleep there (bunk bed and separate bed).

But if I leave out the downstairs it was great. I had a small issue with locks and owner fixed it fast with no problems, so that was great! Outdoor patio furniture downstairs is functional and upstairs balcony was very nice with a great big table to sit and gather.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at our home! Downstairs rooms in Galveston all have a beachy aroma. This is the first time someone reported It being so strong. We have added an automatic air freshener which should help quite a bit. Thank you for staying with us!
