Island Cabana

Let me start out by saying that the location was great. We were there for the month of February and had the beach to ourselves. The interior was more worn than the pictures show, and the cleaning people do a superficial job. There is a lot of deferred maintenance that needs to be done. I think that this place would be great during the summer for a large younger family, who do not mind stairs or internal condition, that wants to be near the beach.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feed back. Over the past 4 years we have hosted more than 150 families in our beach home. Almost all of them have stayed between 2 and 7 nights. Although as in your case we do on occasion have folks stay for a month, particularly in off season. With very few exceptions, the feedback we get from guests is overwhelmingly positive. What I find interesting, is that the two most critical feedbacks I have gotten from guests were from you and another couple in a similar situation, that is a mature couple who stayed for a whole month mainly by themselves except for some extra visitors on a few days.

I do disagree with your comment about younger families. We have had many families of all ages who have been delighted with the house. What does appear to be true is that people who stay for a month sometimes view the house through a different lens than people who stay a week or less. This however was not the case with several visitors we had who actually had a full house throughout their stay. In those cases we have had happy guests.

Maintenance in a vacation rental is an ongoing battle and mostly I think we do pretty well. Although you did have some bad luck. I know early on you were frustrated with several issues with the cable tv in the bedrooms that necessitated multiple visits from Comcast. . There are also always some things that we are unaware of. For example you let us know one half of the 4 slice toaster did not work. We have since replaced it, but have no idea how long it was not working since this is the type of thing that people often do not report to us and is only evident when you are staying in the house.

We rented this house for a week and had a blast. I think the house looks better in person than the pictures. There is plenty of room the views are amazing and I like the fact that the master is on it own floor with a private balcony. Plenty of room to sleep and an all around good

A dog-friendly place in perfect condition, with beach close by and nice views of the gulf.

My wife and I and a variety of family members had a wonderful time staying at Island Cabana. The house is barely 50 yards from the beach, an easy walk, with nice views of the Gulf. It is in excellent condition, with powered shutters, a TV in every room (satellite big screen TV in the main room), dry covered parking for 3 cars, 3 bedrooms (including a second floor master bedroom.) It has a small yard that our dogs liked. Over 30 days we have a variety of friends and family members visit, so we cooked meals, planned Galveston trips, watch the gulf in all sorts of weather, and generally had a great time! We hope to go back.

We had four generations of family members visit us. The stairs are protected from the elements and the outdoor areas have good lighting, convenient for both my mother and mother-in-law.

The owners are prompt to answer email and are truly dog friendly--it was a pleasure to rent from them!

We walked the beach every day, even when it rained. My mother (86 years old!) walked the beach every morning. One day I walked from Jamaica Beach to the Island Cabana house (5 miles) and another day I walked the beach west to the end of the island (6-7 miles.) Other days we ate at Nate's West End in Jamaica Beach, visited the Moody Gardens, Moody Mansion, Bishop's Palace or took the ferry over to the Bolivar Peninsula.

The Best

This was the best vacation we have had in a very long time thanks to Bob and Jane. They accommodated very whim we had. We stayed a month and it was just like home. The house is so comfortable . The openness of the house gave us the benefit of the wonderful Galveston days this time of the year. The yard for our little dogs was perfect. Bob and Jane saw to it that it was mowed regularly because our least dog won't go out in grass that isnt short. We found everything as shown and even better. Not being directly on the beach was a plus because we did not have to fight the sand as in the past. It is only a few extra steps to the beach.

Everything was clean and ready to use when we arrived. The covered, paved parking is great for the rainy days. The beds were very comfortable. The washer/dryer were top of the line. The stove had a convection oven.

The beach is clean and not too busy. The neighbors we met were great. The fishing was good just a few yards from the house.

We will definitely go back because of Bob and Jane. They are the ideal hosts.

Great Family Vacation!

We had our whole family stay during our two weeks at this great place. The amazing thing was how well laid out the bedrooms are. We had people who stayed up late and other people who went to bed early and no one had problems with noise. The furniture on the deck was great! WOuld definitely rent this place again!
