About Kate

I grew up in Houston and have been vacationing in Galveston since I was a teenager. My husband and I love coming to the beach and have stayed in rental properties for the last several years. We purchased our own vacation home to share with our families, friends and guests. It's a great place to get away from your busy days and relax on the beach. Great for families. Floor plan good for multiple families.

Kate purchased this house in 2013

Why Kate chose Galveston

Although the home is 2nd row, it's close enough to feel like oceanfront and has an unobstructed view of the gulf. From the outside deck, you can also see the bay. Great for guys fishing weekend, family getaway or just the two of you. The home is nicely decorated and has all the amenities you're looking for. We want you to enjoy your stay with us and feel like it's your home away from home.

On the beach, but...

  • 3 of 5

First, let me say the owners Kate and Rick were very accommodating and responded immediately to the issues we had. When we first got there, the outside shower head was corroded beyond repair and Rick immediately called a plumber to replace it the next day. That said, if you are looking for pristine, modern, updated properties, this isn't that. There are a few issues that need attention starting with the windows. They are extremely dated and in dire need of replacement. the glass is crazed to the point that you can barely see the house next door much less the beach. They barely open and there are no screens on any of the windows nor are any available. The blinds are extremely old and worn as well. Part of the ambiance of being at the beach is being able to look out at the beach and being able to feel the ocean breeze and smell the salt air. Next is the condition of the interior. it was worn and dated. the stove and dishwasher are stained from use, and while the do work they are a bit unsightly. The accommodations were OK and the bedding and linen/towels were adequate. For the rates we paid per night I expected better. Would I recommend this property to a friend? Not in this condition, for these rates,

but with a few renovations and some serious TLC, probably. Again, the owners were fantastic, but the issues I have with the property cannot be fixed in a weekend. as an aside, we discovered when we got there that we had rented a neighboring property the last time we were in Galveston in 2013, and it was in much better condition for a more reasonable rate. Take away - Caveat Emptor, due diligence required when planning a beach vacation!

Wonderful Family Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Our family (grandparents, mom & dad, two teens) stayed here for a very satisfying week in Galveston. The 3rd floor master BR suite was spacious and private, with a jacuzzi. The second (main) floor had one queen bedroom and a bunk room with four beds. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pots/pans, utensils, etc. and we lacked for nothing in preparing our meals. The Gulf of Mexico is a quick walk from the house, and a ground level shower and hose were most convenient. Perhaps the best part of our week was the quick response of Kate and Rick, the owners, to address an issue with one of the appliances - thanks, guys.

Beachfront access without the "on the beach" price!

  • 5 of 5

Technically, this house is not beach front access, but it' only sits one row back (with no road to cross) and it was a super short walk to the beach. We had two couples with four kids total (ages 5, 3, 2, 2) and had no issues making the short walk to the beach. The beach was empty the majority of the days! It's about a 15 minute drive from Galveston, but well worth it for the privacy you have. The house was well kept up and clean with all of the kitchen utensils you could possibly need. The owner was extremely responsive! Thanks for the great trip!

Great View and Location

  • 4 of 5

Great location and beautiful views! The layout of the house is cozy, and the deck is so relaxing. The grill was very dirty, and there were some dirty bowls in the kitchen, but husband cleaned the grill. The house needs some updating, but I'd definitely rent it again.
