Why Michael Pope chose Galveston

This cottage has become my new definition of the perfect beach house. I have rented VRBO homes myself for myself and my family in the past, both here in the USA and abroad and I've learned what is most important in a summer home is plenty of cold air conditioned air, a good night's sleep and immediate access to a nice beach. We made sure to deliver all of these and then some. I'm sure you're going to agree.

Wonderful Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful place to get away. This is our second time to rent this property. It is very nice, well equipped and comfortable. Does not feel like a rental - it feels like home, in fact I think the beds are more comfortable than my own. The location is fabulous - beachfront! Hope to stay here again!

Good visit, but disappointed in cottage

  • 3 of 5
We spent a little over a week at Martinique with the kids and grandkids. The location is perfect - the beach is outside your door and available at all times for all the beach activities. We used the amenities in the Sea Isle neighborhood; pool, playground, fishing dock, marina and found them to be lovely and inexpensive. The restaurant in Sea Isle provided a delightful adult night out dinner and the grocery store is close by and well stocked.
So why am I disappointed? The house has lots of deferred maintenance issues. The carpet is worn out and smelly, we had a window leak during the rain, towels are frayed, the sheets have lost their elastic and don't stay on the beds leaving us to wake up on stained mattress pads. There is no pantry or storage in the tiny kitchen for your food and the owner doesn't provide any amenities - not even a square of toilet paper Also,the master shower is in the master bedroom and not in a bathroom which is awkward even for a family vacation.
So while we had a good time, I would have a hard time recommending this property especially for the price.

Owner's Response: The reviewer had a wonderful time; we delivered on our promise of “Like having a PRIVATE BEACH to yourself”. We’re so sorry she didn’t like the design of the house (although she saw pictures of every room in the house prior to booking it!) We think it’s the design that gives our home its charming “cottage” feel. We wouldn’t have it any other way.... (and probably why it’s always one of the most heavily booked homes on VRBO!) This would be unfair and inappropriate place to discuss the towels or the sheet complaints as we did not hear even once from the guest that she was dissatisfied with anything during her stay! Our rental agreement specifically asks guests to point out issues in the first 24 hours, but se never heard from her! Her comment was particularly surprising since we replace the sheets every year. Likewise, we had actually informed the guest that the windows needed repair and in fact they had come out to repair the window while they were there only to find that additional parts from the manufacturer in Massachusetts would be required to correctly fix the problem. So it seems a bit unfair to complain about a problem we not only informed her about, but had already taken measures to fix. By the way, the carpet was brand new in 2012 and is thoroughly vacuumed after each guest!

If it looks great on the website, it's even better when you get there.

The view is amazing! You can see for miles! Martinique is a cozy and bright beach cottage. We came with six adults and three small children and had no problem with space or sleeping arrangements. There were generous amenities. All the beds have very nice memory foam mattresses. The 52 inch flat screen TV and peripherals and Wi-Fi were a real plus.

The beachhouse is right on the beach and actually has a greater than 180° view since there are no houses on its beach side and west side.
This is a great place to get away.
Also it was a great experience working with the owners.

Wonderful Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week at the beach with our children and 2 grandkids. Celebrated Thanksgiving in a very untraditional way - and were blessed with some down time with our family. This house was wonderful and delivered exactly what it promised. The view and access to the beach were perfect. The beds were very comfortable. The house was clean, well equipped and updated nicely, we could tell that the owners took good care of this house and are thankful for the opportunity to use it. We will be back!

Fabulous Birthday

  • 5 of 5
My family and I rented this beach house to celebrate my 44th birthday.
We had such a fabulous time. Perfect house and so cute, right on the beach.
All the neighbors were really friendly and our kiddos had a terrific time playing on the beach.
Thanks so much for sharing your home with us. :-)

Car: recommended

We are in the Sea Isle subdivision and are about 10-15 minutes from The Schlitterbahn, Moody Gardens, the Sea Wall restaurant Row, etc.,. We are close to the best restaurant, by far, on the West side of the island: 'Waterman’s' (from FM 3005, turnon12 mile Rd. to Stewart Rd. and turn left). If you like great food in town and watching the sunset over the Bay side of Galveston we recommend 'Pier 21' in Galveston, just North of the Strand District. You might also see the departure of the many cruise ships that depart from the adjacent port! And of course you MUST visit the Strand in the downtown area of Galveston where there are taffy and candy shops, restaurants, and live entertainment. There is a new putt-putt golf course (it’s in a RV park, but is open to everyone) between Jamaica Beach and us at Sea Isle, that is also a lot of fun. The Schlitterbahn is open and is a great water park, much of it is indoors! There is a New Exhibit at Moody Gardens, and there’s great fun at The Pleasure Pier, 16 full scale amusement park rides ….over the water! (like in Santa Monica). Last, but not least, on your key ring to the house is a key to the very private Sea Isle fishing 500 ft. pier on the bayside of the island directly across the highway, give it a try, you’ll probably be bringing home fish for supper or at leat enjoying the view of the neighboring estuary! If you don't catch anything don't worry, to buy groceries, we recommend the Seven Seas Grocery store just west of Jamaica Beach and before you come to Sea Isle, they always have fresh and tasty Gulf shrimp at a good price and a very reasonable selection of groceries.
