Highly recommend this home. Very clean and well furnished. The sofas and chairs were so comfortable that we enjoyed our rainy day relaxing inside. The home is spacious and has a great floor plan. The back side of the home has so many windows that you can enjoy the beach and waves from inside as well as from the deck. The deck has a gate so was safe for our toddler. The kitchen is well stocked-had plenty of pots, pans, dishes and utensils for our various cooking and serving needs. Helene answered all of my questions before renting and the photos accurately reflected the property. We shopped at the grocery store just up road a few miles-it isn't a huge superstore but had everything we needed including fresh meats, fruits and vegetables. There were some reasonable restaurants in the area as well. We liked that the location is away from the craziness of downtown Galveston-the beach was so much more private. I highly recommend this home!
