Clean, everything we needed for our mini vacation
We shared the home with another family & there was more than enough room for everyone & a close proximity to the beach! Hope to be back soon!
Thanks Grace. Please come again.
A couple oopsies, but overall a great stay
Over the weekend we set up a surprise proposal for our very dear friends and it was a very successful and memorable one, but there were a few issues.
I'll go ahead and get the oopsies out of the way first.
When we were looking for a place to stay we were looking for something that slept a lot of people but still had 2 single-bed rooms for privacy. There was only 1 single-bed room....
When more of our guests arrived one of them went to sit down on one of the beds down stairs. When he sat down on it the bed immediately collapsed on his foot. It hurt him so bad he was barely able to walk for the rest of the weekend. Everything needs to be checked for safety before rented to clients, this location clearly wasn't. This could've ended a lot worse than it did especially if children would've been involved. The down stairs area was also still under renovation. My first reaction was pure disbelief that this would be rented out to somebody but we were hardly in there so over time I became less worried about it. My last grievance was that absolutely no toilet paper was provided.... Kind of a necessity that should be included if you ask me. Pretty ridiculous that we had to drive to get toilet paper after just driving 2 hrs to get there.
The overall experience was excellent. We have been renting beach houses in the Galveston/ Boliver area for years. This location, despite the few issues, is now our favorite. The upstairs area is newly renovated and tastefully done. All the beds upstairs were very comfortable too. The wrap around balcony is very nice and had a great view of the beach. The down stairs patio was probably my favorite feature of the whole house. It is huge with a very nice long picnic table as well as additional seating and a nice swing. The grill was gross and not cleaned so if you want to grill I suggest you bring your own. We brought our own so it didn't really cause an issue. Our friends ended up getting engaged on that very patio over doing it on the beach if that tells you how nice the patio was. On top of all that, the beach was only a 5 min walk away. It's a very ideal place for a group of friends to stay over the weekend. I would recommend it to a friend...
Despite the small issues I give this property a 3-star rating. It would've gotten 4 stars if they had only provided toilet paper..... That really annoyed me. We still enjoyed our stay and hope to come back next year to give Swedes Beach Properties a chance to bump up their rating.
Very cozy and roomy.
Everything was great.
There were quite a few things missing.
-you have to buy sheets? Thought that was odd
-there was no handsoap in any of the restrooms
-no hand towels to dry your hands
-no trash bags besides the 1 bag in the can
-they had 2 rolls of toilet paper in a house that sleeps 14. This was unacceptable.
Other than that, it did exactly what we needed. It is listed that it sleeps 14. This would be a tight fit, as we didn't even have 13 and we needed to use air mattresses.
We are able to keep our prices competitive by allowing tenants to furnish their own sheets and towels. We do offer linen packages.
