Great Beach House

  • 5 of 5
The Bad - Mosquitos in Galveston at that time of year are plentiful. Certainly not a knock on the house itself but I wanted something negative to write.
The Excellent - Everything else.
- The Management. Dealing with Karen was a pleasure. She was prompt with replies and our deposit. We have rented though HomeAway before both for Galveston and other locations and I am glad we found her there.
- Location. Being a long island, there is always some downside in our opinion to any location. Near town puts you near activities but away from nice beaches. This location made the downtown activities within a reasonable distance while providing a great beach location.
- Accommodations - My wife and I rented the home and invited our two daughters and their families (five children with four of them being five or under.) The house had enough bedrooms to give us space yet main rooms were large enough that we could intermingle which was the goal of the trip.)
- Ammenities - TV, games, beach toy, cookware and dishes were plentiful. We would have loved to use the porches but as mentioned the mosquitos are bad in early OCT. The proximity to the beach was great.

Since we rent a place somewhere in Texas once or twice a year I looked up their other properties as possible future locations. Unfortunately they look to not be of sufficient size for our needs as I imagine they are nice like this place and as mentioned I liked working with Karen. Not sure when we will return to Galveston again but I see us as returning to this house some day in the future.

Great Family House

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at Playa Romantica from May 31 to June 7. The house is perfect in so many ways for the three generations we had there. The bedrooms and bathrooms are so comfortable for the adults and the bunk room was great fun for the little ones. With the huge deck and under-house area, there is always a shady spot with a wonderful breeze. The outdoor shower with hot water was amazing and there were lots of beach chairs and toys to use. We set up a tent/awning on the beach and left it there all week. It's about 50 yards through the dunes to the beach. Our only issue was the abundance of seaweed. It is cleared into two huge mounds every day, but they do not clear a path to the water. We recommend bringing a shovel to do that yourself. Other than that, the water was a perfect temperature, no under tow, and waist deep out to about 100 yards with a soft sand bottom. We weren't ever bothered by bugs. There is a convenience store across the highway that has a lot of food items, liquor, and beach supplies. Thank you, Karen, for helping us have a wonderful birthday celebration.

Loved Playa Romantica!

  • 5 of 5
Twelve girlfriends and I, thirteen total, stayed at Playa Romantica for the weekend. The house was beautifully decorated (a friend swore she had seen every room in a Pottery Barn magazine), extremely clean, and in a perfect location. Each of us had plenty of space to do what we wanted: layout on the decks, curl up and read, listen to music and dance, or sit around talking and laughing. The beds were all clean and extremely comfortable. The only thing I would like to let everyone know is that the bunk beds are definitely standard twin-sized. While several of us were under 5'6 and fit comfortably, anyone taller than that definitely wouldn't be able to stretch out. :) There were plenty of bathrooms and they were all very clean and well stocked.

The code we were given to open the door didn't initially work, but I called Karen - the owner - and she quickly responded with a working number. No other issues there. We also had to go refill the propane tank before we grilled our dinner, but that wasn't an issue because we had to go out for supplies anyway. When I let Karen know, she readily offered to reimburse us for the tank (since we weren't planning on taking the tank with us). Super great of her!

The house is right next to the beach - so close that we could run back to the house for snacks or bathroom breaks. We also didn't have a problem with noise since the beach is semi-private. We had a wonderful time and everyone agreed it was the best house we'd rented in the last three years. Thanks so much to Karen for sharing her beautiful, sea-side home! We really do appreciate it!
