WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5

The upper duplex was clean, beautiful, spacious and had all we needed. The location was wonderful just a short walk away from the beach, pleasure pier, and the best restaurants. The owners where very helpful and nice. I would say it was one of the top experiences weve had renting in galveston.

Slow response when trying to contact owners en route to property. At least 2 hours trying to reach them via phone calls, email & text. Very anxious for 1/2 of our drive there not getting a response.

To be honest the property wasn't what we were expecting from online pictures. Yes, we're aware property is older but it could have been ALOT cleaner!

Sleeping in the beds was awful. Very itchy particles, if not bugs in bed with you. I ended up laying a clean sheet over the other sheets. Prior to that we all were itching. The bedroom with 2 queen beds were VERY uncomfortable beds. They are on frames that roll around. NOT GOOD. The king bed in main room is better.

My kids dropped things on floor and the floor had a HUGE layer of dust! In the main bathroom the shower doors are coated with a buildup of residue, mold along the bottom edges too.

To be honest we aren't picky people, but we are clean people and this just wasn't clean and made our stay uncomfortable.

Sorry to leave such an unhappy review but would have preferred a nice hotel instead!

Find another cleaning lady ASAP!

Beautiful home with extremely accomodating owners!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I decided to plan a last minute getaway for my daughter's birthday at Pleasure Pier and boy did we hit the jackpot with this rental! Not only was the house two blocks away from Pleasure Pier, but it was spacious enough to comfortably accommodate all 10 of us. The house was beautiful and I was blown away to find out the majority of the décor and furniture was made by the owner from reclaimed wood from the 1900's! Speaking of, the owner was so accommodating and responsive. Even with our never ending delays trying to get down there, they were patient and assured us it was not a problem; we were even greeted with fresh welcome cookies!

An amazing experience overall. We will definitely be staying again!
