Perfect beach location

  • 5 of 5

We had the time of our life at this beach house. Everything was as discribed. The deck was our favorite part of the stay. Early morning and late evening the ocean breeze and crashing waves made you want to stay their all night

Sandpiper heaven

  • 5 of 5

This house is great for large groups. Right on the beach and close to Galveston. The owner makes rental so easy. This is our second time to stay at this house. It was another family fun weekend.

Great, even with Harvey

  • 5 of 5

We got in and the weather was great, after the storm hit we had some decent Wind and Rain but pockets of sunshine and excellent weather. The owners were even nice enough to let us stay a couple extra nights free until we could leave. We've stayed with these owners before and they're always very accommodating and we love their houses. Highly recommend.

Great location, clean spacious home for large group.

  • 4 of 5

We had 12 older folks and it was easy for all to walk out & sit on the beach. Loved having 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths on mail level. 2 large bedrooms & 2 baths up worked very well. Well stocked kitchen & plenty of towels, blankets etc. We spent hours just sitting on the deck watching the waves. Definitely will go back.

Amazing property right on the beach!

  • 4 of 5

The location of this house is perfect. The large, front lawn looks right out into the gulf. We got lucky, and on the first night sat out on the porch to watch an incredible lightning show over the water. The house is very spacious and the AC worked great.

Reasons why I am not leaving a 5-star review:

1)None of the beds were made. The comforters were draped over the bed, but no sheets were on any of the mattresses. This means that was all had to go through and make our beds upon arrival, which was not what we wanted to do after a day of travel.

2)There were no garbage bags in the house. We had to use the grocery bags that we brought some food in, and then just stack the remaining garbage on the counter when we left. The garbage can didn't even have a bag in it.

Owner's Response: It is clearly explained on the website and in the instructions that the sheets are left on the corners of each bed neatly folded.....this should not be a surprise. Yes, there are no trash bags in the house....this is also contained in the instructions and on our website. Also, guests are to strip the beds and remove trash from our home....we had beer cans all over the house/deck and none of the linens were stripped. Our instructions and website are very accurate as to what we provide and relating to departure instructions. 99% of our guests read our website and instructions and arrive at our home knowing exactly what to expect. Our maid even charged us an additional cleaning fee when this guest left....for ALL the beer cans and trash in the house and on the deck that we didn't pass on. To our future guests, our instructions and website are very complete -- happy vacationing!
