Such an amazing and beautiful House.

  • of 5

This is the nicest house to stay at in Galveston. We have been staying at a house a street away for the last 6 years for the Motorcycle Rally. This year we decided to search around for a new house to rent. That was the best decision we could have ever made. The owner is very thorough, and extremely considerate, and definitely pays attention to detail and keeps the house on tip top shape. we will definitely be staying here every year from here on out. Thank you so much for allowing us to rent your beautiful home.

Banana Republic - very nice beach house!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at Banana Republic.

The kitchen has everything you would want in it. It is the most well stocked kitchen we've come across (and we have stayed at many different beach houses). The cabinetry has plenty of storage space - you just have to turn around from the sink and use cabinets behind you (with roll out wire baskets).

We enjoyed the DVD players - listening to our CD's in the family room.. Nice flat panel screens throughout.

The weather wasn't the best when we stayed, but we had a great time none-the-less.

This is a beautiful house - great sunsets from the porches!

Banana Republic was very clean and the owner was very helpful with recommendations in the area. You have to go to Katie's Seafood for the freshest seafood. The oysters were very good - as well as the shrimp.

The Bolivar-Galveston Ferry is a must (free if you walk on). Saw dolphins, seagulls, blue herons, cormorants and pelicans. Nice 30 minute ride and you can't beat the price.

Also ate at Original Mexican Restaurant (tasty Mexican), Millers Seawall Grill (good comfort food with a dash of seafood, inexpensive) and Jimmy's On The Pier (great views and seafood).

Overall a great week!

Needs lots of detail care on the in/out side.

  • 2 of 5

This house needs care. While kitchen looks good it's not functional. The tiny pantry not empty - hard to store any food one brings - the pots and pans are old and some even need to be thrown away because of rust.This house is used by many but not kept up with care. The dryer - door is broken and doesn't work properly- neither do some of the items like CD players etc.. Large closets are a mess - boxes thrown in. The house-construction wobbles extensively compared to other houses with the wind. I will not stay there again. Sewer likes to overflow.

Owner's Response: If you exceed the occupancy of a house don't complain that there isn't enough room. The closets referred to here are the owners closets, not to be used by the guests and an elevated house will sway in a strong wind. I do accept that the dryer door is tricky but does close and finally.. there was no overflow of the septic - none. I can only guess that they used so much water that the drain field was overwhelmed. Again too many people.

Great house, close to the beach.

  • 4 of 5

New construction means lots of space and plenty of room. You're not right on the beach, but it's basically a block away. The house was very well-maintained and it's always great to have a washer/dryer at the beach. Highly recommended, just be prepared for all the stairs.

overall, my family enjoyed their stay

  • 3 of 5

We realize now that "mom" can't ever stay in a house without an

elevator again. The beach patrol fussed about the golf cart but

when they explained my age and limited movement, they gave us permission to use it so long as I was with it.

The stormy night gave us a few minutes of fear but we settled in and went right back to sleep. We used that time the next morning to play games and make plansl

the sun came out and everybody hit the beach!

We visited the same restaurant we used last year...I don't remember the

name but it has a big shrimp on the roof!

Owner's Response: Our other house, Aqua Vista, has an elevator but books quickly. There wasn't much I could do here.

Galveston is back and better than ever and Banana Republic is close enough to visit the many attractions but still relax at the beach. We're only a couple of miles from shopping, restaurants, golfing, and movie theaters including an IMAX, a water park and some great fishing.

Don’t spend your vacation driving back and forth from your rental. Don’t compromise. Enjoy all that Galveston has to offer and enjoy your privacy.
