About robin franks

Our property is personally owned & gently used by family from Houston, Tx. I'm in the environmental consulting business, enjoy art, decorating & our get-aways to the west end of Galveston. Happy to share our paradise with you - the best the island has to offer!

robin franks purchased this house in 1998

Why robin franks chose Galveston

Our family is from Houston & we enjoy the short trip to the island for peacful get-aways! With air travel aggrivations & hotel stays not attractive to us, we enjoy the West End of Galveston island with its proximity to attractive nightlife, sport & wade fishing & gourmet dining. The west end offers safe, pretty & family oriented, relaxation time!

What makes this house unique

Dolphin Daze Galveston is a very unique construction that offers 4 stories & unobstructed views - the best on the island. Very peacful, quiet and romantic! Compare a hotel to our house for a family of 5 and you will find our pricing very agreeable & the resort experience much more enjoyable than a stuffy, overpriced hotel!

Teriffic beachside vacation house

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful, well kept home just a four minute walk to the quiet beach. Very clean, all the amenities we needed for our week long stay. The property exceeds the expectations of the online photographs. The outstanding views are 360 degrees of both beach and bay areas, sunrises and sunsets were excellent.
Robin the owner was very friendly, responsive and helpful from beginning to the end of our stay. I recommend this getaway to everyone who is looking for a relaxed, worry free, vacation.

Thanks again Robin.

Had a Wonderful Time!

  • 5 of 5
We loved this property. We have stayed in several houses in Galveston and this was by far the nicest house we have stayed in. The house was clean and offer several amenities that other houses do not. There was plenty of room for everyone and the beach was just steps away. We will absolutely consider this house when we return to Galveston.

No complaints

  • 5 of 5
The house is very nice, the property site is away from the crowds and the beach is very wide and easily accessible. It's about a twenty minute drive to the Strand, not a complaint just an observation. The owner does not take credit cards which is my only disappointment. As she has a large ticket item with few transactions, she could easily negotiate a 1 percent or less transaction rate and appease quite a few customers, at the least they could remove the "accepts credit cards" from the vrbo website.

Owner's Response: I am happy that you had a nice stay! I try very hard to ensure a "spa-like" stay for all of our guests. The location of our house promotes family vacations and a mellower crowd. Taking credit cards is very expenive for both of us! Some charge up to 5% of the entire amount. I found this unreasonable. I know that we all like to earn "points" with big ticket expenses, but I am able to provide a very nice house at a reasonable price by using VRBO's Reservation Manager system - which allow me to send payment requests to renters and allows renters to pay automatically through the VERY secure system. No bank info is stored or seen by either party - which is nice. I have had no problems with security at all and love the way the system keeps records for us (for tax reasons). Overall, not taking credit cards saves us money and saves me time - which allows me to be able to do this! Paying by check is also an option anytime. thanks for staying at Dolphin Daze!
