Great time.

  • 4 of 5

This was in a great location on Galveston. We were 4 families with 10 boys. It was a bit tight for the sleeping as all of the boys range in age from 14-21, and they were not interested in sleeping 2 to a full size bed.

We had all we needed and the home was clean.

Great patio to see the full moon.

Thanks!

Owner's Response: When our guests let us know they're going to have 20 adult-sized people in our home, we call them to double-check the sleeping arrangements as a courtesy. In this case, this particular guest only reported 13 people (5 adults and 8 kids) in our home, so we didn't call them to double-check the sleeping arrangements. We have five bedrooms, and the sleeping arrangements are clearly spelled out on the website, with 10 adult-sized teenagers, there's nothing really we can do to accommodate our guests if 10 teens want their own beds....an extra house would need to be rented to accommodate the teens needing 10 beds. On the other hand, we have had 20 adults and up to 25 teens/adults happily fit into our home. It just depends on what each guest prefers. Our home is not large enough to accommodate some guests if there are 10 teens (that all need their own beds) in addition to 10 adults sharing 5 beds. We currently have 10 beds in our home and the pictures/sleeping arrangements on our website are accurate. Thank you!

Charming, Family Friendly, Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The house helps enhance your beach side experience. Quite comfortable with enough space for your family and then some. Everything was so close, running to the store or entertainment was never a problem. The instructions for the house and the stay made things easy. The house holds more than what is expected. I would recommend again and again.

Perfect location on the beach for our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

House was perfect our group of 13 (7 adults and 6 kids). Plenty of space for everyone and the location on the beach was wonderful! To quote our 6 year old grandson, "I love it here"!

Loved It

  • 5 of 5

My group and I really loved this location. The home was nice and well maintained, owners were responsive to questions, location was right on the beach – everything as advertised. We will definitely return soon. TIP: Make sure you read the instructions – all the info you need is there….including tips and tricks and the door lock and lights! It was really great to have such a through list of what is and isn’t provided!

Love the Location, Great House!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed with the owners at their other home and we loved this one just as much. It is right on the beach, close to town, it was a wonderful stay. What we really liked about this home is all the space -- there is enough room for everyone and the ladies loved all the bathrooms. We also really enjoyed the spacious deck and all the outdoor seating. The owners keep their houses well maintained and are very responsive to questions. We will definitely be back soon! Thank you for another great stay.
