The house was great. We had 2 adults and 7 children and there was plenty of room. The house is not really walking distance to the beach, although the pictures led me to believe it was, but it was pretty easy to just load the ice chest and drive to the main beach access which was very close by. There is a crabbing pier about a half mile away... totally fun! We caught so many crabs. Plus hermit crabs and little shrimp and even a fiddler crab! The kids had a blast. My only real complaint is that the sheets and towels had not been put in the washer like the instructions tell you to do upon leaving so at bed time, the day we arrived, we realized that.... with small children that was a big deal. So Please think of the next family coming and just throw a load of sheets in the wash. Great vacation place tho! And if you can, take the 50 minute trip to Galveston and go to Pleasure Peire. It was by far The Best theme park we have ever been to.
