Great place with a great deck to hang out on and enjoy the views.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay but I recommend renting a golf cart to get back and forth from the beach.

Great location; needs some maintenance

  • 3 of 5

This was a great location for our family weekend get-away to Galveston. Here are my pros and cons:


Great location - we wanted a place on a canal so that our kids could fish in the evening. We loved watching the fish swimming around the fishing light in the evening. The beach was right down the road. I would recommend renting a golf cart to go back and forth.

Awesome deck - we enjoyed sitting out on the deck in the evening watching the sun set.

Clean - the home was clean

Dog Friendly - our 50 lb four legged child was welcome to stay with us.


Only reason that I rated this a three-star is that the house needs some maintenance. Nothing that caused problems for us while we were there. The cabinet door in the kitchen where the trash can is stored was almost off its hinges, there were some loose boards on the deck railings. Water spots on ceilings. The transition between the living room and the eating nook is a trip hazard.

Beautiful place!!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of motorcycle enthusiasts in for the Rally this year and we all loved the house. Location was close enough to the action , but far enough away that it wasn't in the middle of all the craziness of bike week. Wonderful view. Could use some more comfy pillows, Overall a fantastic place.

summer getaway

  • 4 of 5

the house was in a great location, the layout of home was very nice.Just a lot of stairs .Main floor was 2nd floor which meant stairs, to carry up ice chests food and luggage. My grandson had one leg in a cast so that made it hard for him so he stayed on the bottom floor.

The kitchen we had problems with ants, light over sink would come on whenever it wanted to. stairs out on deck the last one was roten and came apart when we stepped on it( wife almost fell)..Great house but needs so leaked outside where the shower connects and dripped on ground by from of house....

Overall okay, but could use some repair.

  • 2 of 5

The home was layed out well the top bedroom nook was great, the AC worked really well for as hot as it was outside and refrgirators, washer and dryer were excellent. The shower doors were not secured well had to watch when you open and close so they would not fall off track. The tile in the upper bathroom were replaced pretty badly, really looked bad, several spots on ceiling had been repaired from water damage pretty shabbily, several tiles on floor need to be resecured, several roaches were killed are seen during our stay could use a good extermination, the upstairs entry door needs attention, drags floor hard to open and close and door knob really loose. The deck needs major attention, some floor boards a pretty rotten and all stairs and railings really shaky, will be pretty dangerous soon. With a little attention this home could be first class.

We did enjoy the home close to beach and right on canal. Evenings were nice on deck with breeze.

Owner's Response: I'm replacing the deck this fall, the summer heat has expanded the boards and I'm aware they need replacement. As far as the tiles and ceiling this damage was done by renters along with quite a bit of other damage and was temporarily repaired due to property is rented almost full time this summer, again will be repaired in fall. The home has been exterminated, this is near the water and a lot of rain but will have company in again. Thanks for your stay and I am addressing your concerns.
