About Tanya & Matthew Nguyen

My husband and I built this house for ourselves after we've exhausted our search for a perfect vacation home for our family. We started groundbreaking on February 14, 2008 and were just putting on finishing touches the weekend before Hurricane IKE made landfall on Galveston Island on September 10, 2008. Needless to say, it was our longest weekend with lots of anticipation and expectation. Fortunately, the house was practically untouched after the storm. We have been using it for ourselves and for our extended families since. Everyone just loves our house. Our priorities have changed as the kids are heading to college and we decided to begin renting out our house. So here goes the beginning of our new venture.

Tanya & Matthew Nguyen purchased this house in 2008

Lovely home, close to beach!!!

  • 4 of 5
We rented this home for a long weekend with a group of friends and it was perfect! It was clean and well organized to find what we needed easily. The photos really capture the property well. We did have to bring some of our own bath towels to accommodate all 8 of us. The three bathrooms were wonderful and we never ran out of hot water! Tanya was a wonderful hostess. She greeted us upon our arrival to ensure everything was in place and was easy to contact throughout the weekend. Tanya even provided us with a few extras like a baby pool and a wagon for carting things to the beach and back. Also, the beach was an easy walk away and accessible for our stroller. We plan to rent this home again and would recommend it to others! Thank you again Tanya!

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5
What a Great Experience!!! Tanya, you were awesome in accomadating us! We had such a great time. We usually rent in Destin, Florida so we didn't know what to expect here. We were used to having to bring everything from dishtowels to toilet paper and trashbags. We did of course but were very pleasantly suprised you had everything. We cooked alot (husband is a chef) and he didn't have to bring any of his utensils or cook wear. Partly because we were busy and didn't have time to put together. However, he was extremely happy with all the equipment you had on hand. Please trust us future rental guests- this is a house to stay at! There were such minor things that could have been different- not even worth mentioning. This place is family friendly! My niece loved the book shelves filled with books- it was a perk. Thank you Tanya! We will be seeing you again!

Summer Vacation 2014

  • 4 of 5
Well worth the money! Tanya was great to work with, answered any questions I had. We had plenty of room for all 9 of us. There was not enough towels. You are far away enough to relax but close enough to to the seawall to enjoy what Galveston has to offer! The house was a little dirty when we arrived but once we cleaned up a little, things were great! Will definitely consider renting this house again!!

Nice location, close to everything in Galveston

  • 4 of 5
This was a nice beach house.
Short walk to the beach ... we had a wagon.
With a full house , it was spacious with plenty of room for everyone.
Owner gave superior service and was very tentative to our needs.
We would consider renting this beach house again.

Potential...but needs some BASIC maintenance.

  • 2 of 5
Pros: Location, PRICE, 3 baths. Cons: The house has ants…we lost half our food the first night because we didn’t notice at first. The owner said her maid put baits under the sink but she guessed it didn’t work. She did offer an exterminator if we got tired of fighting the pests on our own….but then we’d have to find somewhere else to take our dog. The house also has gnats in the third floor master bath…a new crop hatched each night and were dead all over the place in the morning. Ick. As mentioned by a previous reviewer the house has horrible rusty lawn furniture on the third floor patio. This is neither nice to look at or safe to use. The wood railings on all the outside porches and stairs are rusted over at each nail. There is a large, rotting wood picnic table/bench that greets you in the driveway that should be disposed of immediately as I doubt it is ever used. No furniture is better than unsafe furniture. The owner told us the high grass would be cut the day we arrived…it was mowed 4 days into our 6 day stay. This house is not little kid or dog friendly. We had 4 kids under 6 years old and because of the super slippery indoor wood stairs we were constantly warning the kids to “hold on” to the railing. The yard is coated in weeds and painful sticker bugs that chopped up my dogs paws every time we tried to find a “clean” spot to walk her. We finally took to walking to other yards only to be attacked by fire ants. We were thankfully warned by the owner to bring our own towels...they only had 6 for a house that advertises for 8-10. Not a big deal...just adds to the con list. The beach is close…a little over a block away…it was very clean on Tues when we arrived...but it is not cleaned regularly and by Friday ….we couldn’t find a patch of sand without seaweed on it….by Sunday it was just gross. I suspect the public beaches are better maintained. I wouldn’t totally dismiss this house if you are considering it…the owner seems willing to help…just ask her about the maintenance items before you sign the contract….these are simple things that could be handled in a day with minimal effort or cost. Otherwise, bring some bug spray and leave your dogs and kids at home! ;) BTW, the house has no views of the ocean from either deck if that matters to you. The house sits next to a rotted…seemingly abandoned… boarded up “shack”. You can’t see it in any of the pics online…but it’s the view you’ll have.

Owner's Response: Dear Trina,

My husband and I are disappointed when we read your review. We take a lot of pride in this house and are doing our best to up keep. We also take our renter’s feedback very seriously and will work to address any problem our guests have as soon as we possibly could. We apologize for the ant problem you had during your stay. After hearing about the ant problem my husband made several calls to find an exterminator but was not able to schedule for an appointment. I was at work but did try to call and talk to you about the situation later in the day and asked that you call me back if the ant situation is not improving. On the lawn, our lawn mower said his lawn mower broke over the weekend so he was late mowing our yard the week you were there. The patio furniture and the broken picnic table were disassembled and recycled after your departure. On the stairs, our house has travertine and bamboo throughout so it can be slippery when wet. I mentioned this in our guest manual. Again I’m so sorry you did not have a pleasant stay. The basic maintenance issues are resolved. The house next door and the beach condition are not in our control. Thank for your comments!

Great place, great privacy, and great price!

  • 5 of 5
I think the place was very clean and organized. It had pretty much everything we needed for our 4 day stay. The beach is a block away and very private, which is great for small children. Anytime I had questions, the owners were very responsive. Overall, I would certainly do it again!

The beach house is in a quiet neighborhood at the west end of Galveston Island on the beach side. The wide sand beach is perfect for kids to play on the beach, fly their kites or just to have fun on the sand and for adults to take long beach walks. The house is about ten minutes drive back to Galveston. A gas station and convenience store are less than 300 feet from the sub division.
