The issues we did have were major...

  • 3 of 5
My first impression was good. The house was clean and as pictured with the exception of the pool.
I had a 30th birthday in October so I knew the weather would be unknown. I chose to pay an additional two hundred dollars to have the pool heated and I specifically asked for it in the contract since I had read reviews on this issue. The pool and hot tub each didn't have enough water to even work. The hot tub was half full and filthy from not having the water move around and filter. The hot tub was not warm upon arrival and wasn't able to heat the entire weekend. The system that operates the house never worked properly and the WIFI continued to go in and out and reboot all of the settings for the pool. In turn, like I said before, we never got to use either the pool or hot tub because of the condition they were in.
The living room TV wouldn't work and this was a huge issue for us as many of the guys wanted to watch football and were unable to.
Also, the space is NOT pet friendly as there isn't even a gate on one side of the house. The dogs are able to go through a very dangerous, prickly bush and into the neighbors yard. This was an issue for us.
We attempted to get a hold of Chad at least 6 times that weekend via phone calls and text and we were ignored. I have since called him three times and left messages and sent an email and I have received no word from him or explanation as to how to get my money back since I paid for a pool that none of my guest could use. It was VERY embarrassing and inconvenient.
Very unsatisfied by the time I left.

We had a great family Easter week ...

  • 4 of 5
The house and pool and hot tub are wonderful. The bedrooms are comfortable, living areas modern and comfortable, kitchen well stocked, wonderful appliances. Working with Chad .. not so much. No communication after the deposit. He moved, didn't get check, didn't confirm after used cc, gave access code to wrong address. I didn't feel I really had the house til days before. To his credit .. he did find us a plumber on Easter Sunday. But then we NEEDED a plumber on Easter Sunday. A pipe broke in the attic at 1am. If our daughter was not still awake, the results would have been disasterous. Lots of cleanup, then the pipe below the sink came apart and another garbage gush. Chad would not agree to pay $125 for the 'liquid damage' to a computer in the wake of the pipe breakage.

Nice, but has a lot of issues for the Price!

  • 3 of 5
First off I would like to say that the initial contact for this property was a bit of a hassle. Then finally the date arrived, We were initially impressed overall with the home. We couldn't get the key out of the lock box, that needs to be updated. Of course my kids wanted to hit the pool first, and we notice that the water was not clear, Yes the POOL was DIRTY and we could not figure out how to work the hot tub. (Placed a call to Chad, which was Ignored) The next day we purchased Chlorine for our protection. The book that was there to give directions, spoke of an IPod to work the pool, THERE WAS NO IPOD only a charger. The sleeping arrangements were very comfortable, except the sofa sleeper has no mattress and the blow up mattress deflated overnight and my son ended up on the hard floor by morning. I felt we left the house immaculately clean, as I always do when renting. However I believe three very important things were left in the house and I have yet to receive a return phone call or email from Chad after messages were left. All of my photos from my cell phone were lost because my SD card was taken out and left there, my Ipad was left there and a brand new mini Dell Laptop. NOT a HAPPY CAMPER BUT WHAT CAN BE DONE...
It is an overall good large property, needs some updating for the price, Chad needs to be more engaging and if you don't leave any of your personal property, You should have a good time. Hope this helps!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house for a weekend getaway and place to relax and celebrate running the Galveston Marathon. The house was amazing and the owner, Chad was great to work with. We had a minor episode with the pool, but Chad walked us through the steps we needed to get back in business! A super bonus to have that hot tub when we so needed it!
We would definitely consider staying here again and have already recommended it to several friends.

Perfect Galveston Weekend at Gorgeous Home

  • 3 of 5
We could NOT have picked a better home for ourmmini-family reunion!! It is a beautiful home that has been perfectly outfitted. The bedding was luxurious making for sleep fit for a King! The kitchen was well stocked. There is even plenty of board games (not to mention a pool with hotub and an air hockey table) allowing guests plenty of choices of lounging activities. The house is convenient to Moody Gardens which was wonderful as well since we wanted to enjoy the last weekend of Festival of Lights. The host Chad could NOT have been any easier or pleasant to work with. Our group is even considering trying to make this a tradition every year it was so pleasant:)!

If you are planning a group trip to Galveston, check this rental first....you will NOT be disappointed.

Great Place To Stay

This was our second trip to Galveston and staying at this house. We love it! The house is set up great to share with friends and family. Lots of sleeping space and lots of gathering room. The hot tub and pool are a great place to relax. Looking forward to our next trip. We will definitely stay here again.
