Peaceful Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This property has one of the best placements on the beach I’ve seen. It is such a nice facility for a large family, and is nicely decorated, without so many “nick nacks” to be worried about. We had a wonderful time and plan to return next year, Lord willing.😍?😎? 🦀?🦐?🌴?.

Very nice

  • 4 of 5

I would have given this property 5 stars, but it is need of some cosmetic maintenance. Nothing though, that would keep us from coming back. It is still a pretty home. Cozy, homey, with a fabulous view and an awesome beach. The beach is far from any roads leading to Termini San Luis Rd., so there are a lot less people on the beach. We had a wonderful time, and would definitely go back and stay again. Owner is easy to reach and responded quickly. Kitchen is well equipped. Oh, and very important...the house was very clean!! Lots of chairs for the beach, toys for children, nice outdoor shower plus a faucet to wash your feet upstairs outside, as well. Beds are comfortable too! With a little tlc, it will be perfect. We loved it!

Great location.

  • 4 of 5

Here are the pros and cons of our stay.

Pro: location. House is right on the beach. Great view. Beach has no vehicle traffic, and a nice family atmosphere.

Con: sticker burrs. Bring a pair of flip-flops for outside and one for inside. Throw away the outside pair when you leave.

Pro: the owners were nice. They even purchased some beach toys for my grandson before he arrived.

Con: the owners were a little unorganized. When we arrived, they were there. They thought that we were coming the next day. That was awkward.

Pro: the owners responded quickly to repairs.

Con: the a/c was not working. Local repairmen fixed it, but it was 24 hot hours after we arrived.

Pro: the house was very clean. It even smells clean.

Con: the house is older, and has signs of age (broken cabinet door, cracked floor tiles, peeling paint).

Pro: the layout of the house. The upstairs master suite is huge. The house is light and bright.

Con: stairs are narrow. Made me a little nervous, but we managed just fine.

I hope that you find this helpful.

Location is perfect, home clean, but could use some minor maintenance

  • 4 of 5

We really couldn't be happier with our stay. The location is right on the beach, easy path down to the water, and outside Galveston enough to get a bit away but not so far to not enjoy the attractions there. The home is clean, spacious, and well setup for one large family or two smaller families to enjoy. Only reason for 4 stars is there are no window screens. In the heat of the summer, this may not be an issue as the AC may be on all day, but we were in the spring when the days were warm and the nights perfectly cool - but we could not enjoy having the windows open with no screens. The bugs were immediate once the sun set. It would have been nice to hear the ocean and get that breeze at night.
