Guestbook comments from the owner

This property exceeded my many small details, like providing beach towels, shampoos, paper towels and other kitchen items, not to mention the fully loaded storage shed with beach chairs, umbrellas etc., made this such a relaxing getaway. We didn't have to spend hours shopping for all of that!

The townhouse was large and comfortable--and extremely clean and well decorated. Only a short 2 minute walk to the beach, but my favorite part was sitting on the deck overlooking the ocean, listening to the waves crash. Wonderful wide beach for the kids to play--we all had a blast and will definitely be back!!

Soooo happy we chose to stay here!!

  • 5 of 5

Beach relaxation therapy #1 rule - pick the right location. My husband & I did extensive research on where to stay for our mini 4 day "let's escape reality" trip. Sea La Vie fit our needs perfectly. GREAT location, 2 minute walk & you are on the beach, no hassle of trying to cross a major traffic area, no cars allowed to drive on the beach in this area, plenty of room inside the home (2 bedrooms & 3 baths - wow!), comfortable king size bed, beach chairs/misc. stuff provided, and rental price was right. Since it was just the two of us & we have a pool at home, staying at some ritzier resort type place with a pool.....and LOTS of people around, was not our plan. Our goal - easy access to the beach, and peace to enjoy it.

We had hoped it would be fairly quiet here & our expectations were exceeded. We took several morning walks where we had the beach practically to ourselves, even at 9-10 am. Even in the middle of the afternoon, this beach was wonderful to enjoy - no crowds. Sunset walks were nice, too. Grocery store next door is a nice bonus. We had breakfast at the house, but went into town for all of our dinners - easy drive. And everything was there IF we had wanted to cook. We ventured down to Sea Isle's Sand Bar restaurant one day for lunch - short drive - and it was nice to sit outside at the marina & watch the boats go by. Kip, the owner, was very easy to communicate with & most impressively, he responded quickly.

Yeah, we would definitely stay here again. It was exactly the escape we desired.

Owner's Response: So Glad y'all had a good time! We picked this place for the very reasons you outlined in your review. If you did not have a chance to try Nate's restaurant, put it on your list for next time - great food, I get at least one meal there every time I'm down, (it is just next to the grocery, a very easy 3 min walk). We would love to have you back anytime. Cheers Kip.

Great condo right by the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for having such a well appointed and lovely place for our family group of 8 plus a close to the beach. The 3 full bathrooms and plenty of places to sleep made our extended stay in Galveston awesome. The condo was well stocked and supplied all our needs and more. The convenient store and restaurant just steps away from the house meant that there was no reason to travel into town unless you wanted to. Kip was especially accommodating to our needs and made our stay a delight. Thank you for the great rental right by a wonderful stretch of the beach. We just got home last night but miss it already. Highly recommended!

Exactly what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

Sea la vi was perfect for our family of 7. Kip was great with communication. The home was bright and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked. Having 3 bathrooms was awesome! The location was very nice. A very easy walk to a very quiet beach was our favorite part. Thank you for opening up your home to us, Kip!
