A fantastic family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

If you are searching for the perfect vacation home on the Texas Gulf coast, you have just found it. This home has everything a family needs for a perfect vacation experience. First, the home itself is comfortable, well furnished, beautifully decorated, and well maintained. Secondly, it is located on a canal that leads to Galveston Bay and from there to the Gulf. You can enjoy fishing and crabbing from the dock in your backyard or kayaking on the water. Best of all, the fishing equipment, boating equipment, and much more is furnished. Third, you are just minutes from Galveston itself. The beauty is that you can access the amenities of the city without having to endure the traffic, cost and stress of residing there. Fourth, within a few blocks of this home is located a fabulous bistro and grill. We ate many meals there. Next, the most spectacular aspect of this rental is the pool and outdoor grill area. The property is actually two lots with the residence on one and the pool and outdoor cabana adjacent. Without a doubt, it is one of the nice pools on any island. The adults enjoyed it as much as did the kids. Lastly, we will not fine a nicer person to deal with than the Karen. She made this a stress-free process. She delivered on all promises and was very prompt and punctual with all correspondence. The nicest part of this rental is that it was for one-month and in the same price range as weekly rentals. You can’t beat that deal. As you can see, this rental gets our two-thumbs up seal of approval.

This was the perfect house for our family get away! Everyone was happy with the pool, fishing and accommodations. Everyone caught fish and blue crabs off the dock and the grandkids loved feeding the ducks and sea gulls. The house was beautiful and the kitchen had everything we needed to make our stay perfect. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home.

Very relaxing! The home was really clean and comfortable. We spent most of our time outside as there are so many places to sit and relax and the pool and hot tub are a bonus.

The owner was so nice and accommodating. We will be back!
