About John Waymire
I was born and raised in Houston Texas and my family all lives in Houston Texas. We built this house after going down to Galveston every summer and renting houses for summer vacations. We took everything we liked in homes we rented knowing when we built this house we would be renting it.
John Waymire purchased this House in 2005
Why John Waymire chose Hershey Beach
It's a perfect house for multiple families having six bedrooms with private baths. The house has 6 bedrooms and 5.5 baths and sleeps 17. The main living area is all one big room with kitchen, dining and living-Great for family reunions, birthday parities, etc... It's oceanfront on the west end of Galveston on three miles from the seawall. Plenty of parking with and elevator.
What makes this House unique
6 Bedrooms-two masters, 5.5 baths, two fireplaces, elevator, multiple decks with Gulf of Mexico views and speakers, Washer and Dryer, two Dishwashers, ice maker and surround sound in living area.
We loved the property and location. House is really beautiful.
Areas that could be improved are: quality and quantity of towels. Quality of cookware. Also need more serving pieces. Trays for cheese platter, serving bowls, meat platters, etc. Ice bucket is rusted and needs to be replaced.
WE HAD 14 FAMILY MEMBERS IN THIS HOME, AND IT WAS PRETTY MUCH PERFECT. THE WEATHER ENDED UP ALSO BEING PERFECT, SO WE HAD A WONDERFUL VACATION. IT WAS AWESOME BEING 'ON' THE BEACH TO ENJOY THE KIDS CLOSE AT PLAY. WOULD DEFINITELY CHECK TO SEE IF THIS RENTAL WAS AVAILABLE ON OUR NEXT VISIT!
Wonderful place right on the beach!
We had a great time at this home! It has what feels like a private beach with wonderful views from every room. The balcony is large and relaxing. The home has everything you would need and is very inviting including an open main floor with a nice large kitchen. John was great to work with and very responsive from the first contact all the way through our stay. We would recommend this property to anyone looking for a large home in Galveston!
Location is perfect. Loved the multiple rooms for each family group. Kitchen was roomy and well stocked. Deck was wonderful in the evenings. We’ll be back!
Perfect Beach Retreat!
We recently rented High Point for our small family reunion. The house was perfect! So many different mingling areas - kitchen, dining, living room, deck, below the house...we didn't feel on top of each other, yet cozy enough to wander between different conversation groups. From beginning to end, the owner and his rental assistant were super helpful with pre-post questions we had to ensure we were set and ready to go. I can't wait to book here again!
Excellent home with every amenity!
It is a perfect place for a family vacation!! It is a great home on the beach.
It is the westend of Galveston Island, private beach- 3 miles from the sea wall. 15min drive pleasure pier and the Strand.
