Family Beach Bash 2012

The Blue Marlin is PERFECT ~ Julie is WONDERFUL to deal with and a phone call away should a problem arise (she gave us the handyman's number just in case) but we had NO PROBLEMS with anything. The kitchen is perfectly stocked and set up for everyone to help out and sit and visit; that makes meal time not such a chore.I have NEVER seen a rental that well stocked with dishes & silverware. Clean up is a breeze with a dishwasher and much counter space. The living room was very comfortable, although we spent most all our time on the porch, the beach - just steps away, or sleeping in the comfortable beds. Both showers are amazing and the master bath is incredible (I love the sink!) and who doesn't like a jacuzzi! A real bonus is the attention to detail, downstairs you can rinse off your feet - body - and actually take a shower with hot water... so nice! The property is well maintained and kept clean. My husband is almost blind so he spent his waking hours on the porch.This porch is always in the shade, except early morning. We were comfortable all day with the gulf breeze. He and I stayed a week. We had both of our daughters and their families for Saturday Family Beach Bash (our 2nd annual) ~ we are booking two weeks next June! I have stayed many places up and down our Texas Coast and THIS is where I will return! There is so much fun stuff to do in Galveston for all ages, but we could not bring ourselves to leave this awesome house! All you need to bring is your beach clothes, towels and personal items, food & beverages. We came loaded with paper goods, dishwasher and laundry soap and left what we did not use as a goodwill offering toward next guests. Stores are close by and big stores are like 8 miles to Wal-Mart, Kroger, Randalls and all Galveston has to offer. Beautiful sunrise from the porch or upper deck ~ and the sunset colors can be enjoyed from the upper deck as well as stargazing (next year bringing a telescope) This is in the path of Pelicans, they fly over and they feed right at the wave breaks out front, great entertainment!
This is the second time I have rented thru VRBO and this house was most accurately described and by far will always be my first choice.
Julie, please hold the last two weeks of June for us and let me know when to send money ~
