Great house right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5
House was fantastic for a large family - even nicer than the pictures convey. The owner was very prompt in answering questions and was good to work with. Wifi worked well- good Internet connectivity. Wraparound deck had some shaded area with view at all times of the day.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We spent lots of time looking for the perfect place for our family to spend a week together in Galveston and this really was the best choice for us. There were not too many things for our young children to get into and there was plenty of space for my parents, 2 brothers' family, and our family. The view was fantastic with a wrap around balcony and it was great to have most of the amenities of home without having to bring them with you. The kitchen had all items you need for cooking along with the space, and the washer/dryer was a great benefit as well. Bedrooms are a nice size, and there are drawers and closets for each room. There even was a mop, vacuum cleaner, and a baby gate for the inside stairs! Another plus, warm water in the shower outside downstairs. We also brought a portable electric grill with us to help save on meals and cook for a bunch of people. We definitely hope to get to spend another week at this great retreat.

Perfect house for a large group

  • 5 of 5
We celebrated my husband's 40th birthday here, along with family and friends. The house is perfect for a large group -- plenty of room in the open kitchen/dining/living area, plenty of beds/couches, great deck/balcony overlooking the water, and a quick trot across the dune bridge to the beach. The fishing from the beach is great too (although at this time of year--late June--the seaweed can be a little thick). The only downside was having to leave.

great house for families

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week at By the Sea. The owner was very pleasant to work with and very responsive to any issues that came up during our stay. The house has an easy and comfortable set up for families and is right on the beach with wonderful views all around. We were there during Spring Break and the beach was almost empty...it felt like our own private beach! We were there with two other families and all of the kids are begging to go back. The only complaint I could come up with would be that there is not cleaning service during the week and the sheets were all packaged and delivered, so that took some work upon arrival getting all of the beds made. We had a great week and will be back for sure!

Turning 65 By The Sea

  • 5 of 5
I celebrated my 65th brithday with a group of friends. The home was perfect! The living and dining space was very spacious and provided an excellent place for conversation, games and just relaxing. The bedrooms provided lots of space for 10 adults. The proximity of the home to the beach was perfect. The fact that the entire living area is windows allowed a great view of the evening lightening over the Gulf. This home lived up to my expectations, and then some. My stay was just not long enough.

Wonderful Beach House

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I along with 4 daughters, 4 grandchildren, 2 son in laws, my mother in law and one boyfriend spent a wonderful week at this beach house in Galveston. The location could not have been better, the house was just as it was represented to us, spacious, clean, well equipped and maintained. This was our third family vacation in Galveston and we all agreed the best yet!
