Ideal location for weekend getaway

  • 3 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 18, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
The location of this Sea Isle fishing retreat was ideal for us and the neighbors were friendly and quiet. Unfortunately, the fishing was not ideal because of the weather so our kids were bummed.

The living room furniture was comfortable, however, the remote controls (3) of them for the TV in the living room were tricky to operate even with all of the instructions from the owner.

The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans and dishes so it made it very nice when it was time to prepare our meals. Previous guests left a lot of food in the fridge and cabinets.

All three bedrooms were modest in size, so our travel bags were always in the way. The house says it sleeps 9, however it was unfortunately too small for our family of 9.

Our boys were unable to utilize the TV or PS3 in the one bedroom because we could not properly operate the remote controls.

The hall bath was too small for our family with no counter space and the other bath did not have a shower curtain and again lacked counter space. My only suggestion would be to upgrade some of the bath towels and replace the bed in the master bedroom because it is too squeaky.

The home owner was extremely friendly and helpful from beginning to end. I would recommend this retreat for a smaller group.
Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. This is the lowest review we have ever had and we wish that all of our guests have 5 star stays. Naturally, we are disappointed yours wasn't a 5 star stay. Towards continuing to improve and better manage expectations, we've responded to each point below.

Remote Controls: In trying to provide all of the amenities possible, (Apple TV, BluRay, U-Verse, HDTV Flat Screen ), I could see how the remote controls for the difference devices can be confusing. We wish you would have called us during your stay as there is a Universal Remote that controls all of the items. We have a techician scheduled to go out and make sure the Universal Remote is working properly and has not been removed.

Most guests appreciate having basic condiments (mustard, ketchup) and spices available rather than discard them each time. Since we frequently use the property ourselves, we like to have the basics there. Our housekeeper indicated only the basic condiments were left in the fridge with some frozen items when she cleaned the house prior to this stay.

Although we permit a maximum of 9 to stay in the house, we try to be clear in the listing that the house sleeps 7 comfortably in beds and that to sleep 9 it is tight. We don't recommend packing that many people in, but do allow a maximum of 9.

We brought a Sony PS3 to the house with a few games, but because guests have moved it back and forth between TVs, we have decided to simply remove it from the listing.

We hadn't heard about a squeaky bed from any other guest until recently and so have ordered a new bed frame and mattress.

We abolsutely love our place in Sea Isle and have had numerous repeat customers who book as far in advance as a year and have made the place like one of their own second homes. We always appreciate the feedback!

Our family had a nice time here even though the weather was not the best. The bed in the bedroom to the left needs new mattress and box springs. It is very noisy trying to sleep. The grill cleaing tool needs to be thrown away. I saw many of the wire bristles on the grill surface which could be a big problem if they got stuck in someon's meat and caused trouble in their intestines.

Owner's Response: Thanks for positive review! We replaced the BBQ cleaning brush and had not heard anything about the mattress making noise. Thanks for letting us know. We ordered a new mattress and frame for that bedroom.

Amazing place

Amazing place... Right on the water, very large deck and well appointed furniture. We will come back for sure in the near future but we won't be hauling a lot of stuff as the house has everything. :)
The only thing that I recommend for upgrade/repair is the bed in master bedroom. It's very squeaky.
I would recommend everyone to stay here.

A very kids friendly bay house!

This is a very nice house for a family vacation. It has everything we needed. The back deck and the dock on water are extremely nice. Fishing wasn't great due to the winter cold front, but it has nothing to do with this nice house. Very nice Sea Isle area, and we would highly recommend this house to any family. Easy access to the beach, and just a short drive to town for anything.

TEN STARS!!!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 20, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
If we could give ten stars, we would!!! We loved the Galveston Family and Fishing Retreat!! We have stayed at many vacational rentals, and none were so clean and well stocked with kitchen items, BBQ pit options (charcoal and propane--there was even propane in the tank from previous guest), toaster oven, two blenders, plenty of plates, flatware, pots, whirlypop popcorn maker, rice cooker, crockpot, etc. The Apple TV option so we can rent movies on our own Itune's account was great!! Breakfast and coffee on the upper deck and cocktails downstairs before dinner while the kids swam or fished Plenty of room for our family with a great open floor plan. Used the neighborhood amenities (pool, restaurant, bait shop), crabbed, fished, swam, beached, took a day at Pleasure Pier for older kids while we went to Strand and shopped. Neighbors were awesome too. Super nice. Felt like a home away from home. Perfect vacation for our family!!!!! We recommend it highly and plan to make it an annual tradition!!! Thanks so much for sharing this great retreat with our family.
