Lovely house!

  • 4 of 5

When we arrived the house was clean and welcoming. It's a very nice vacation rental in a great location. The only reason that I am giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is because there were only 2 rolls of toilet paper (for 16 people) and the stairs were extremely narrow. I would definitely rent this house again. It is very fair priced for the amount of room that you are getting.

Close to beach house

  • 4 of 5

It is a much older house than we expected. It is in a great location. The plumbing in the toilets needs to be fixed as well as normal supplies like garbage bags and toilet paper should already be there. The air conditioning downstairs did not work in one bedroom but it was the basement and there were fans around. The kitchen does not have air conditioning at all! And some of the pans need to be thrown away since the teflon is coming off of them. Everything else was perfect! We felt safe and there was plenty of room for everyone. Great weekend get away!

Excellent beach home

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at this property in Galveston. The home was perfect for my family with some beds downstairs and some upstairs which allowed the kids to have some privacy for their play time and the same for the adults. We will definitely book this house again next year.

Great place in a good location

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this property. The place was recently redone and there is a ton of space (upstairs and downstairs). We slept 10 people there plus a few kids. The yard was nice with some shady spots to hang out, and it's really close to the beach.

I wish the property would have came with a user manual. We had to call for wifi password, the checkout expectations were not clear (some conflicting information--one place said to strip the beds, the other said do not strip the beds). The other thing is that the trash can to take out trash is in the alley, but the gate is locked so you have to carry or drive trash from inside the house around the block to the trash can.

I nevertheless gave the house a good review as it was clean, comfortable, and the manager/owner was responsive to questions.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for our bridal party for the weekend, about 10 people. When we walked in we were all very impressed with the house! It was nicely decorated and had everything you could possibly need. Everyone slept comfortably with enough space and we even had room for more if needed. I slept in the master bedroom upstairs and the mattress was very comfortable! The stairs to go downstairs are a bit steep, especially with some bigger guys in the group , but we found it was easier for us to use the side door, go outside and up the main stairs. The backyard had a nice table with a grill, we were sad we didn't get a chance to use it. The house is literally one block from the seawall. We walked from the house to the beach several times with no problems at all. We would definitely recommend staying here and would gladly rent this place again!

Bright Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at this house for a weekend this April. The weather was perfect!!

We had 7 children, 9 Adults, and 2 dogs. There was plenty of room for all of us! The house was great! We loved all of the outdoor spaces. It was very clean! We were a short walk to the beach, only about 10 minutes.

A few small things to mention: the refrigerator door doesn't latch closed. We had to tape it closed or put an ice chest in front of it. With so many people in and out of it over the weekend it became a hassle making sure it was closed so our food would stay cold.

As mentioned in the house info, the downstairs was a bit warmer. Luckily we came earlier in the year so we could just open the doors. I think one more window unit down there would help.

Last thing, no wifi. The house has 3 TVS with cable which is nice when you just want to chill out after the beach. The no wifi didn't bother me much but most of the parents on the trip were concerned with their kids using a bunch of data. I personally wasn't on my phone much all weekend and voted to take all the phones away from the kids but I was out ruled. Still, having wifi would be good and you could even replace the cable with netflix to save $$. :)

Overall the good outweighed the bad. We had a wonderful time and would definitely stay here again!
