This fantastic home has space for everyone in your group and includes your own private pool and spa so you can soak up the sun in crystal clear water.

GREAT HOUSE AND POOL!

  • 5 of 5
I recently visited this beautiful home along with my 3 young children and 4 other adult family members. The house was everything we had hoped for and was just as described in its listing. It was the perfect spot to relax and play together as a family. There were plenty of large gathering spaces in the house and the kitchen was great for preparing family meals. We also enjoyed the hot tub and pool every day! This house is centrally located in the heart of Galveston Island and is very close to the beach. Because we visited in the winter, it was too cold for playing on the beach, but the pool and spa were amazing and we didn't even miss it. We never lacked for activities and visited the local train museum, air museum, Johnson Space Center and many others. There were also many great restaurants near by and a Walmart just blocks away for picking up food and other items we needed during our visit. While there, we had a couple of questions about the pool and Chad was extremely helpful, getting back to us quickly and answering all questions. We loved our time at the house and had a great experience. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation destination and my family can't wait to visit again.

NICE ISLAND GETAWAY.

  • 4 of 5
Nice large home in a quiet neighborhood. Upon arrival we had questions about how to heat the hot tub, I texted Chad and he quickly responded. The place was clean and looked just like what you see in the pictures. I highly recommend this property and will be staying here again in the future.

TALK ABOUT HOT!!!!!

  • 2 of 5
Good things: clean, plenty of towels, well stocked with essentials, spacious, rooms are roomy, plenty of closet space, close to beach, good location, beds comfortable, tastefully decorated, quite/nice neighborhood.
Now for the not so good part. Day 1: arrival 5pm. Put A/c on 72. 4 hrs later still 78 to 79 degrees in the house, so thought ok perhaps it takes time to cool down. Called Chad got voice mail. Sent message that evening to Chad. Also stating hot tub not working. Day 2: seemed to start cooling 2 am (lowest it got was 75/76 in the middle of the night). By 10 am back up to 79 degrees. Chad stopped by to check on pool-pipe busted. Thought changing filter would help. Also said he knew the temp in the house because he could access it on his phone. Didn't seem too concerned with temp & that we were miserable. 2nd night so miserable-trip to Walmart- $75 on fans. Day 3-Text again that pool stopped working & A/C not cooling. Chad response-sending A/C man. No A/C man. Text Chad-no response. Text again-no response. Day 4: A/C man showed after 6 pm (36 hrs later & 12 hrs before time to leave), nothing he did helped. Still 78/79 degrees. Day 5: leave---5 days in house so miserably hot no one felt like doing anything. After day 3, I no longer received any response from Chad. I felt like he was just pacifying me & putting me off knowing i was only there for so many days, & in the end he didn't even respond at all. This huge house has only 1 A/C unit trying to cool it & it doesn't do the job properly & it's new unit!
Guess pool guy did whatever-pump starts working on the pool off & on. Hot tub didn't function properly the whole time we were there. If turned it on per instructions then it drained & stayed empty most of the time.
Fridge worked on & off. Sometimes it wouldn't be cooling at all. 1rst night had to keep milk in ice chest. Freezer managed to keep ice from melting, but ice cream after being in their all night wouldn't freeze. Couldn't get dishwasher to work & garbage disposal/broken. Sink would not drain, so had only use of 1 side of sink. Closet door-fell off when opened. Gas BBQ grill outside was filthy. But hey didn't complain and worked around it. Figured if I could get a response to the A/C problem I would be happy, although that didn't happen.
Although reading the negative review on his other house, I took my chance based on the + reviews, don't know if Chad was just real busy or what, but a very horrible experience from this renters view point!

Galveston Island features over 100 years of history as well as hundreds of fantastic restaurants and sights. The major draw of the Island is, of course, the ocean and the beach but there is so much more to Galveston. Moody Gardens, Schlitterbahn, Fishing Piers, Shopping, Historic mansions, Battleship tours and more.
