This trip was everything we could have asked for and more! I was a little bit nervous as we drove through the heart of Galveston and saw seaweed covered beaches and inebriated crowds. As soon as I saw the house and seaweed free beach that is 30 yards away, I knew we had made a fantastic decision!
Gorgeous, gorgeous home. We particularly loved the private sinks and toilets for each room, because it meant our teenage daughters weren't monopolizing our restroom or shower space. The bedroom televisions also allowed us to avoid our 21 year old son's nightly horror movie selection.
Our family of 6 (plus our german shepherd so 7!) had perfect days strolling the beach looking for shells and kayaking. My husband also had great success fishing by the bridge (I enjoyed the wrap around deck during fishing time)! It was a perfect combination of family activities during the day, and having total privacy in our own little suites at night.
We cooked about half of our meals, which was a breeze because the kitchen is better stocked than my kitchen at home (great job Diane!) and expansive beachfront views make doing dishes enjoyable. We ate out at several Surfside restaurants that are only 15-20 minutes away, where the food is actually quite good!
Blake and Diane are fabulous. They really cared about us enjoying our stay and wanted to make sure we had every thing we could possibly think of. By far the best experience I have had with owners, a vacation home, and a beach vacation! Everything was just so easy and relaxed, which was exactly what we were looking for. We are already emailing about coming back in the Fall!
Thank you so much Blake and Diane!
