Best Deck in Texas!

  • 5 of 5

We really love Kennedy's Canal on Galveston Island. We have been travelling to Galveston for years, and this property definitely has the most to offer of any home that we have stayed in. Best open kitchen design with huge center island with seating that you can find. Huge dining table just between the kitchen and the living. Really nice to be right on the water. The deck is huge with seating for everyone, and that is just on the upper deck, they have a lower deck on the water too. The beds are great, which is really nice! Very nice neighborhood with several nice places to eat nearby. The beach access is just across the the street from the neighborhood. Overall, this is a great retreat, and hanging on the deck watching sunsets is awesome!

Amazing Beach House to Stay In

  • 5 of 5

It was everything that our 15 year old granddaughter, that got to stay in it for a birthday party in April, said it was. We had our 5 year old granddaughter's birthday party there. The beach theme was perfect for our pink flamingo birthday party. It was large, with three floors and lots of beds. Everyone loved the kayaks, paddle board, and canoe. The boys enjoyed fishing off the deck in the canal during the day and at night. There was so much for everyone to do that we stayed busy all of the time. The kitchen was large with many pots, pans and cooking items. We are already talking about making this an annual event as everyone was not ready to leave and cannot wait to come back. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The good and the bad ....

  • 3 of 5

The bad - trash bins were totally already full when we arrived for a weekend with 14 people. The house needs to be exterminated. There were ants and roaches in the kitchen/den. We had to go buy ant/roach spray. Yes there were bath towels - but they weren't nice and exactly one per person - so really the ad should say bring extra towels if you need more than one. Luckily, I had talked to the owners hours before my arrival because it says it's a "gas" grill and really its charcoal - so you need to bring grill stuff. The house is spacious but really needs repairs. It's got lots of little issues - like the chairs in the dining room are pretty unstable and need to be repaired or replaced. We wouldn't even sit in some of them.

THE GOOD ... the good is "great patio". Tons of comfortable seating and an awesome place to hang out. Plenty of beds, great that you don't have to bring your own bed linens. AC worked good, large driveway for parking. Is a great choice for large groups and families. Great side yard if you had kids or pets.

Only giving this 3 stars because of the bugs🐜�
