Our family has rented many properties in Galveston over the years. This one is by far the best one we have ever rented on the island. The home is beautifuly appointed and has the most amazing views and private beach. Walk down the steps and your feet are in the sand! You can watch the kids from one of the multiple decks while you sip on your adult beverage of choice. When the sun goes down, enjoy a firepit on the beach. The elder family members really appreciated the elevator. This home is close to the seawall (within 5- 6 miles) and all of the local attractions but far enough away to allow you to enjoy the quietness of the very secluded area the house is located in. The owner was very friendly and easy to work with. We will certainly be recommending this property to our family and friends when we are not renting it ourselves.

5 Stars are not enough for this property...

We will be back!

Our family recently stayed at this amazing beach house. It is close to all of the happenings in Galveston, but far enough away from the beaten path that you feel like you are on your own private island. Watching the sun come up with your morning brew of choice, on a deck that faces the water, and is steps away from the beach, is my "happy place". Repeat this in the evening with the moon rising.

The house is beautifuly equipped with everything you could possibly want or need and having an elevator is a plus for the old folks. The owner is very approachable and accommodating.

We will be back again!

Review of High Point

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was "more than wonderful". It was so beyond our expectations and thoroughly accommodated our 12 occupants. All of the accommodations (bedrooms, living/dining area, bathrooms, deck area, and kitchen areas were all superb. The kitchen offered literally everything (even more than I have in my home) in regard to gadgets and utensils.
