  • Cutest Little Beach House in Texas

    "Wow, what a difference a year makes. We've stayed at this house before and always loved it, but the work done recently to improve the deck and exterior--it's practically shiny now. The owner has always decorated the inside in such a cute, homey fashion. Now they've expanded some of the space so we had more room for all our big family's stuff. Love this house. Love Galveston's west end."

  • Fabulous house & location

    "The house and location was absolutely awesome. It was very close walking distance to the beach. In addition, there is a playground close by the kids could walk to and have fun. It was great sitting out on the balconies in the evening (even having dinner outside one night). We will definitely be looking to book a trip back and staying again."

  • Sights and Sounds of the Ocean Right Outside the Door!

    "Andrew was fantastic to deal with and very helpful towards our needs. He and his wife have a lovely location a stones throw to the edge of the Gulf and when you open the door you can hear the waves crashing and you can see long expanses of sandy beach from the whole length of the home (lots of big windows:)). During our week stay at the end of March 2017 we experienced very few beach goers and so we felt like we had the beach all to ourselves. Over the weekend the use increased and I would say there were probably 20-30 groups but it wasn't irritating and no one is allowed to bring a car on the beach. Andrew had plenty of beach toys, a dingy, and several boogie boards which my young teens loved to use. The water was a pleasant temperature and the wind kept us cool, but not too cool that we couldn't enjoy lazing on the sand. At night we could see a vast expanse of stars--we even spotted shooting stars and enjoyed seeing lightning bugs. We saw beached Portuguese Man-O-Wars and Cabbage Head jellyfish (believe this happens in the spring) which we kept a wide birth from but it did not stop us from going in the water (better to know and be aware then be frightened). There were also supposed to be rattlesnakes in the scrubby greenspace but again, we were aware of the possibility so we stayed out of the scrub, and Andrew said in all his years there he has never seen a snake. The amenities in the house were boundless--everything you could need to make a lovely meal. We both really enjoyed sleeping on the mattress in the master bedroom because it was super comfy and didn't have much motion transference so we got great sleeps! Each teen also had their own bedroom and one bath to share between them, we had our own in the master. As there was a streetlight just outside the bedroom window we found it a bit bright at night but once we figured out we could lower the storm shades it became so dark we couldn't see our hands in front of our faces---again this allowed for lovely sleep. As we are Western Canadians we are not used to the humidity but it was easily controlled by the new air conditioning system Andrew installed and also by a fan in our bedroom. We were able to do our laundry as there was both a washer and dryer. The home was clean and perfectly appointed to accommodate a family needing to spend quality time together. We could only find Scrabble so bring games if that is your want. We highly recommend a stay, you couldn't find nicer hosts:)."

  • Happy with the Stay

    "We were very happy with our stay here at the Driftwood Bungalow. It was a little closer to the beach than we expected based on aerial views of the property. Only about a 10 minute drive from San Luis pass and the Seven Seas grocery store nearby was convenient for picking up any little items or essentials. I wouldn't recommend doing all your shopping at that grocery store as they are a little pricey. Kroger is only about 10 minutes away as well so it's easy to get to and takes little time to make your way back to the main areas of Galveston. My wife loved the decorations and there was plenty of room for our family upstairs (2 adults / 4 kids). The bottom bedroom/living area was also convenient to have. I was able to keep my fishing poles, life jackets, and supplies locked up at night. We cooked on the outside grill for several nights and the kitchen contained everything we could have possibly needed for cooking. Our family would definitely recommend this property for anyone looking for a house close to the beach with plenty of room for the family."
