A+ location

  • 4 of 5

First off, the property manager Kathy was amazing! She went above and beyond to insure our stay was the best! She was great!

The location was more than perfect, private, quiet and just beautiful!! We had the best time despite the chilly weather!!!

The house was disappointing. The listing said it was a 3 bedroom and if we had known it was only 2 bedroom plus an added pull out sofa in the main space, we wouldn't have booked it! The kitchen was beautiful and perfect! The water heater is either too small or failing, we got about 8 minutes of hot water before it went cold (we timed it so we knew how fast our showers had to be) . The room with the bunk beds smelled like urine but we didn't sleep in there. The master bath was beautiful , the bath faucet has a temperature gauge on it that we all found quite awesome! The shower head did drip a lot of water when just running the bath which was annoying. The sleeper sofa had no sheets, so we had to make do with flat sheets off the bunks!

All in all our stay was nice. We would love to come back but next time we need a third bedroom!!

Thank you Kathy for doing your best to make sure we had a wonderful time and being available to us for the entire holiday weekend!!

Owner's Response: We strive to make our guests love their stay. We are thrilled you enjoyed the location, the recently updated master bathroom and kitchen. I feel bad about the misunderstanding about there being a third bedroom. The third sleeping area is in a bonus room off the family room with a brand new pull out couch. The sheets are usually stored in the closet nearby, but the cleaning service had moved them to a bottom drawer in the spare bedroom. In regard to the water heater, this was the first we had heard of any shortage. We will be monitoring it closely but it was replaced fairly recently. The house does have a small water heater, but usually accomodates our guests with no notification from ny previous guests. In regard to the odor in the other room, I found it surprising you didn't mention that in our multiple communications. We just did a deep clean of all linens and had the carpets cleaned a few weeks ago. I will definatley have my cleaning service look into it, but I am absolutely certain this will never be a concern going forward for any future guests. We strive to do our very best to make sure our guests are completely satisfied always and I apologize if we fell short in this instance.

Perfect Little Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Just what we wanted. 40 steps from the gulf and 500 yards of secluded beach to the west for the dog.

House was cozy and well maintained.

We will stay here again.

Amazing Beach house and even more amazing beach!

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing. The beach is gorgeous. Fine sand, no seaweed, lots of shells on the beach to pick and fin to watch the sand crabs. The house is perfect. Cozy and inviting with all the amenities. It's out of The way of The busy beaches and Galveston main which made a great getaway from it all. The property manager was amazing to deal with and I will definitely be back.

We arrived pretty late Friday evening and find out that the linen in master bed was not changed from the previous visitors; sheet was soiled, sand, human and dog hair. Bathtub in master bath was completely clogged. Ants parried through living room, kitchen and second bedroom.

After my complain, next afternoon the linen was replaced and we were provided with bottle of Drano and can of Raid to deal with problems ourselves. We left day earlier; it was not a weekend we were looking forward for!

Owner's Response: It is so very important for us to have our guests enjoy their stay completely. We strive for 5 stars, so you can imagine how disappointing it is to see this review. We were notified about the ants and quite surprised since we have a quarterly service that treats regularly. You were there on a weekend so we did what we could in regard to the ants by sending our handman/cleaning lady out with ant treatment as the bug service was closed. The cleaning lady had offered to spray for the ants and cleand up, but she was told that you wanted to do it due to your pet and child and not to have them near the Raid. I called the bug service out to re-treat the house on Monday, and they said that after the storm the ants were a problem on much of the island. I am happy to report they are taken care of. In regard to the sheets, this is very disappointing to hear. I am absolutlely sure the sheets were changed as the owner came in the day before to deliver the new furniture. He told me he had stayed over so I had to send my cleaning service out for a quick turn around. She cleaned the bathroom, kitchen and changed the sheets. After sharing your email with her, she was extremely disappointed to hear that there was an issue. She came out with a second set the next day. She thought maybe the comforter had something that didn't get cleaned off and transferred to the sheet. That is the only explanation we can arrive at. We apologize for that incovenience but I can assure you they were changed before your arrival. In regad to the tub not draining, we had not been notified about that in the past and the handyman did in fact take care of that before they left that same day. I apologize for your inconveniences and truly wish the ants had not been there. We take pride in our business and truly want our guests to feel taken care of if there is an issue.
