perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

VRBO rental is the best way to get an affordable family vacation. The condo was clean, close to everything we needed, but did not have a washer or dryer in the condo. There was a laundry facility on site, bring quarters. Location was perfect, neighbors were super friendly, would recommend friends and family to check on availability for this condo when visiting Gulf Shores.

Nice place, close to beach.

  • 4 of 5

Rooms looked larger online and one of the cots was broken so we did not have enough beds. Otherwise great.

We had an enjoyable stay and our overall impression was good. We originally had 8 coming on our trip but 3 couldn't make it at the last minute so we ended up with 5. I think 8 would've been crowded. Although it says it sleeps 12, really only 6-8 at most would be comfortable. And the living and kitchen area is very small for any more than 4-6. The master bath/shower did not drain well and I started to call about it but from the look of the shower curtain it wasn't a new issue and who wants a repairman there while your trying to relax? Other small issues were holes in door and walls and peeling paint. The house is showing some wear and tear as well as the outdoor furniture. But I must say the location to the beach is awesome and so convenient. Sunny Beach is just far enough from Galveston proper for the beach to be not crowded at all no matter what time of day we went. We went at peak season so the price was pretty high especially with fees and taxes($1,700 for 3 nights) but Ryson was easy and pleasant to deal with. We would come again and try to get a beachfront house.

Great family getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We rented the home during our early spring break, and while the weather wasn't great, we still had a good time just hanging out in this cozy home with all the creature comforts. It's just a couple of years old, so everything is in great condition - nice appliances and gadgets in the kitchen. We took three teenage girls, which worked out great with the two upstairs bedrooms - they all got their own bed. The girls loved the 3 minute walk to the beach whenever they wanted to head that way, or sometimes they just decided to hang out on the balcony to get some sun. There is a decent view of the Gulf from the balcony, at least for now - there is construction going on in the neighborhood, which may change that in the future. The drive to the main part of town, restaurants and attractions was not bad at all. This neighborhood is one of the first ones west off Seawall Blvd. after it turns away from the Gulf.

While the five of us fit well into the house, the living area is not huge, and if you want to all get together and watch a movie at night, seating where you can all see the TV can be a bit challenging, so you may end up on the floor. I know that the description indicates the house will hold 10-12 people, but I would personally recommend having no more than about 8, as I think you would probably be on top of each other quite a bit of the time (at least in the evenings). But overall, we would definitely enjoy staying here again the next time our family is in Galveston!
