G A L V E S T O N I S L A N D

Hallo Darwin,

ich kann mich an Dein e-Mail

erinnern, in dem Du gefragt

hast: „...bei all den vielen Orten

in Amerika – warum habt Ihr

Galveston ausgewählt?“

Genau das, was wir hier

vorgefunden haben. Ruhe und

Entspannung mit dem Blick

auf den fast menschenleeren

Strand und das Meer. Und das

in einem wunderschönen und

gemütlichen Haus, in dem wir

uns vom ersten Moment an

sehr wohlgefühlt haben – wie

Zuhause.

Auch die Menschen die uns

begegnet sind, waren immer

offen, herzlich und hilfsbereit.

Unser Aufenthalt war eigentlich

viel zu kurz. Es hätte noch

Einiges gegeben, dass wir gerne

hier gemacht hätten – wie z.B.

ein Boot mieten und vom Wasser

aus die Gegend erkunden.

Es ist uns schwer gefallen, die

USA und „Andrea`s Retreat“

zu verlassen. Wenn sich die

Gelegenheit ergibt, würden wir

gerne einmal wiederkommen.

Bei uns in Deutschland gibt es

einen Spruch: „Man sieht sich

immer zweimal im Leben“.

So sagen wir „Auf Wiedersehen“!

April 2010

Hi Darwin,

I remember me at an e-Mail

from you where you asked:

„I am curious about something...

with all the places to go in

America, why did you choose

Galveston?“

Exactly what we have found.

Rest and relaxation with a

view of the almost deserted

beach and the sea. And this in a

beautiful and comfortable house

where we felt happy since the

first moment - like at home.

The people we met were always

open, cordial and helpful.

Our vacation was too short.

There are many things we

would like to see them or to

do - such as a boat rental to

explore the area around

Galveston by boat.

We were sad to leave the U.S.

and „Andrea` s Retreat“.

If the opportunity arises, we

would like to come back again.

Here in Germany there is a

saying: „We see us twice in a

lifetime“.

So we say „Goodbye“!

2010 April

Andreas Retreat

We had a great time and checked out Sunday. THE BEACH HOUSE IS GREAT.I would suggest that you put an outdoor plug around the sink for cleaning fish with an electrical knife or listening to a radio while you are barbequeing. We will rent again.

Owner's Response: We appreciate this good review and the reviewer's positive suggestions. We have added two electrical outlets, one by the outdoor bar and one by the fish cleaning station as suggested. These are ground fault interrupter (GFCI) outlets, for safety of the user. We saw pictures of the fish he was cleaning and they were whoppers!

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5
The house is great, a perfect location. It's close in to town, but away from any crowd, and right on the beach. Plenty of room for 6. The owner was helpful and responsive beyond my expectations. Coffee on the deck in the morning was the best therapy. The temperature was so comfortable at night I could have slept outside. So sad to leave, but hopeful to return again soon.

Wonderful time at Andreas Retreat!

  • 5 of 5
There was more than enough room for my family and dog at Andreas Retreat. It had all the amenities we needed. Loved the view from the porch. Fantastic location. We want to go again this summer but for a longer visit.
Thank you, Darwin, for the wonderful retreat that you offer.

Can't wait to go back!!!!

We booked this in about 8 months advance with the anticipation of my mother's 60th birthday and my husband's 33rd birthday celebration. We were very excited and could not wait to get to the beach. Needless to say, the house exceeded our expectations! They have thought of everything to make your experience one to truly remember. We were still finding amenities up to the very last night we were there. Our dogs enjoyed it as well... We were so happy to be able to bring our four legged children as well. You will not be disappointed if you stay here... We're looking forward to booking our next trip (next summer - just waiting on the calendar to get to where July is open for booking!) thanks again, Darwin!

Notes:
Hurricane Ike caused some damage to the property, but this has been repaired, usually with improvement. The city has repaired the street immediately in front of the house, but it ends just beyond the house where the beach begins. The city and state have thoroughly cleaned the beach of debris. (Sand was dug to a depth of about 4 feet, taken to a cleaning station, sifted of debris and returned to the beach. An impressive project!) Free Netflix movies using AppleTV connection.
