About Michelle and Frank Piazza
We love our second home and want to share with you the joys we've had building family memories. We hope you will appreciate this home, the furnishings and appliances. Please be mindful that this is our home and not a hotel room.
Why Michelle and Frank Piazza chose Galveston
We fell in love with this house from the moment we laid eyes on it. The third floor living space allows great views of the beach and bay. The sunsets are majestic. Because we are a corner lot and overlook the natural green space, we can stretch out and relax.

Great 4th of July beach trip with the family!
I can't say enough great things about this house and the owners. The house is absolutely as described. The owners were responsive if we needed anything and even had a welcome bag ready for us upon arrival with treats and bug spray. We used all of it ! The house was clean and well stocked. We really appreciated all of the utensils, cookware, coffee pot, etc. There seems to never be enough of those things in a beach house but that was not the case here. There are games , books, puzzles, beach toys, a cooler, hammocks... really anything you might need already there. There were plenty of towels both bath and beach that we didn't need to bring our own. The walk to the beach isn't bad, a little beach cart makes it easier. The pool check-in was easy and very nice to have that option. Drinks and food were great at the pool. The decks are lovely facing both ocean and bay . Everyone had their own space when needed. We will definitely come back to visit here! Thank you for a wonderful family vacation !
Very nice property! This is our second time to stay in the Pointe West neighborhood, but the first at this property. Salty Kisses did not disappoint! The home is very nicely furnished. The kitchen is well stocked with most everything needed!! We had 2 families totaling 4 adults and 3 young kids. We all had plenty of room! Thank you for a wonderful trip!
Salty Kisses Beach House
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Salty Kisses! We were a group of 13 and the space was perfect for us! Beach access was just down the street and we had a great time at the beach! Having access (for a minimal fee) to the Clubhouse pools was a plus! The only downside of our whole experience was the mosquitoes! Bring your bug spray and use it every time you step outside. They will attack the minute you step out on the porch! Overall, we loved it!
Truly a home away from home.
Truly a home away from home. Our family of 10 was in a home that could have been featured in Better Homes and Gardens. The owner is very responsive, generous, carefully anticipated our every need, lavishly furnished every area with things to get us started for a memorable, relaxing vacation. They even provided mosquito spray, which we never needed. Each bedroom has a private bath, each room has beautiful big windows that I clean and provide different views. We could see the ocean as well as the bay, we could hear frogs and all kinds of Birds. Just sitting on the different balconies without even leaving the house was an experience old and young enjoyed. We’re all cooks and had everything we needed to make lavish meals and eat them in either of the two large dining area’s. The seating inside and outside on the upstairs patio easily accommodated 10 people. Tips: rent a golf cart and explore This beautiful fast, well manicured community. Enjoy the lush vegetation around you And bass on down to the country club for a scrumptious meal worth every penny. Don’t close all the interior doors of the master bedroom If you want it really, really cold. Mattresses a cut above the rest, kitchen appliances professional grade. Extra plus: on ground floor toilet, sink, and outside shower! Toys for kids and an extensive variety of outdoor furnishings.
The proper was gorgeously decorated for the beach! Kitchen well stocked! Hammocks and beach toys gre
The room with twin beds one of mattresses was not comfortable. Needed to be replaced! Needs to have front porch light bulb changed. It was burned out and dark coming and going down the entrance stairs. Never used the grill but needed to be cleaned! The outside shower was handy coming from beach!
Overall very relaxing and fun place to stay!
Thank you for letting us know about the twin mattress, and grill. Sorry the light bulb was out. I do keep extras out for guests in case a light bulb does burn out during your stay. Thanks for staying at Salty Kisses!
This was the fourth time we stay in Pointe West. Unfortunately, this property fell short on our expectations. All of the appliances worked at about 60% of their capacity - dryer didn't dry well enough, fridge didn't keep things cool enough, gas grill outside didn't heat up hot enough, etc... Some of the photos on the HomeAway advertisement are misleading, because the beach is not as close as the photos lead us to believe it was.
The downstairs bedroom had some cigarette smoke smell, and some of the outside pillows had cigarette burns. This leads us to believe that the property sometimes hosts smokers.
Finally, while not the house's fault, the mosquito situation is atrocious around this property. None of the other properties we stayed at had a similarly bad mosquito issue.
Thank you so much for your review! I will have the appliances looked at. The dryer is one year old and the expensive Weber grill is brand new for the renters to use which we do provide the propane for. Also the renters are not to smoke in the house but it is hard to always know what goes on at the property. The only pillow that had a smoke burn was the outside dining table chair cushion. The rest of the outside patio furniture is brand new this year.
Under the listing it locates how far it is from the beach. We are not beachfront but a short walk to the cross over. Also the prices are lower than beachfront. If you wanted beach front row you would have paid more.
We do take pride in our house and always are updating the property with new furniture, clean white towels and sheets. We also provide all the beach towels, We strive to always provide all the necessities besides toletries so renters only have to bring the food. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to cook from appliances to ziplock bags, foil, saran Wrap and containers to store leftovers.
We even provided the pac n play for your family and made sure it was clean and safe.
The City of Galveston comes and sprays when mosquitos are bad. We have no control over mosquitos and renters normally bring their own bug spray.
THIS IS THE FIRST BAD REVIEW SINCE OWNING THIS PROPERY AND WE HAVE HAD IT ON VRBO FOR THREE YEARS!
It is to bad YOU believe Salty Kisses fell short of your expectations.
Be sure to visit these Galveston area attractions which are about 25 minutes from our beachside cottage: Moody Gardens (aquarium, golf course, movie theatre), Texas Flight Museum, Sea Wolf Park Submarine Warfare Center, Schlitterbahnn Water Park, Golf Cart Rentals (will deliver and pick up from our house - this is a must for families with kids).
