Guestbook comments from the owner
This is a lovely house. We appreciated the well stocked appliance in the kitchen, the 3D big screen TV; hardwood floors, washer & dryer, nice bathrooms.



We shared with the owner a bit of feedback which also includes: add some bleach to the white towels so they are brighter; ensure a baby crib or porta crib is at this house all the time so it is baby/child friendly; include trash cans in the main rooms; inlude dish towels in the kitchen; have the cleaning folks check the drawers, cabinets and under the beds so those things that others have left behind are cleaned up. Please advise folks of the beach status re: seaweed...as many folks coming from outside the TX area would not be aware of it.

FABULOUS PLACE

  • 5 of 5
Andrew is a dream to work with. His home was exactly as advertised complete with all the homey touches. The location was perfect....close enough to all that Galveston offers yet just outside the hustle and bustle. Perfect tranquility. We had four grandparents, four parents (one was VERY pregnant), two grandchildren and an aunt. The open floor plan and immediate beach access was exactly what we wanted for our group.

PERFECT VACATION HOME FOR FAMILY WITH SMALL KIDS..

  • 5 of 5
This was our second stay at Aqua Vista, and despite some disappointments, we'll most likely return next year because it is so perfect for our family. Disappointments: kitchen lacked teaspoons and plastic bowls for kids; we had to fix the top floor shower door when it fell on my sister; toilet paper holder in same bathroom broken & house was not as clean as last year. Pluses: helpful & easy to contact owner; ideal location on beach & close to Galveston attractions; loft play area for the kids; spacious balconies overlooking beach; washer & dryer on bedroom floor; just an easy house to enjoy for our group of 2 grandparents, 4 parents & 4 kids ages 2 - 5. And the elevator is great for loading and unloading. We can't think of a more perfect place for our family's stay in Galveston.

GREAT STAY, GREAT HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
Aqua Vista is just as shown in the pictures, very nice and well stocked. The floor plan is excellent and the views from the 3rd floor deck are wonderful. The house is beachfront but set back slightly from the houses to the right so the views from the 2 floor bedrooms are only straight out tot he ocean and back to the left towards Galveston, but certainly not a big negative as the living areas are on the 3rd floor and that deck had full views. The ability to walk a short distance back and forth between the house and the beach was well worth it (no hauling everything in a wagon and getting out to the beach and forgetting something). The beach in the front of the house is a public beach, but no vehicles are allowed to drive on it, so only those staying in the houses in that area were on the beach most of the time. All the others stayed on the "public" beach. Even though it was Memorial Day weekend, the area of the beach in front of the house was not crowded which is also a big plus. Although we did use the stairs most of the time, the elevator was extremely useful and something to be considered especially for bad knees, older and younger guests, luggage and groceries. There was plenty of hot water, space, kitchen was well stocked and washer and dryer was a nice addition. We would definitely rent again and recommend.

RECHARGE FROM 2012

  • 4 of 5
Needed a weekend to recharge after 2012. Had all the family join us. The house was beautiful. We did not have small children which would have been a little unnerving with the several flights of stairs and the steep ladder to the loft but if you have tweens this was great. They had their own place to hang out to get away from the adults. All the bed were comfortable so everyone slept great. The kitchen was fully stocked (crock pot and even a rice cooker) which was great when preparing meals. The beach was a short walk away. Did not realize that there was a beach house on the right and in front of this house but we met the renters and even enjoyed some crawfish with them. The location was perfect. Close to downtown so that shopping was easy and the elevator was wonderful when bringing in the groceries. We had such a great time everyone wants to make this an annual trip.

AMAZING BEACH HOME- 5++ STARS!

  • 5 of 5
This beach house is AWESOME! It is right on the beach, just 3 minutes from all of the Galveston attractions (Moody Gardens, Pleasure Pier, The Strand, shopping, grocery stores, restaurants, etc).

This house has it all, including an elevator! The decor is elegant and luxurious for a beach home, yet still casual feeling. It had top of the line appliances (including washer and dryer), every small kitchen appliance you could possibly need, all cooking pots, pans, utensils, linens, HUGE TV (which we seldom watched- just too many other things to do!), towels, soap, spices, grill, beach toys- you only need to bring yourselves!

With 5 bedrooms and 3 baths, Aqua Vista was perfect for the many British guests we were entertaining. Everyone had the privacy they needed, beach views in all but one of the bedrooms, and high quality linens, towels, etc. It was like a 5-star hotel!

The weather was absolutely perfect for October (highs in the 80's). They thought they were in a tropical paradise (it was 5 degrees above freezing when our guests left England!) We swam and played on the beach every day. Some went deep-sea fishing, to a Texans-Ravens football game in nearby Houston, shopping on The Strand, Moody Gardens, and ate at great restaurants, but most of the time we all just enjoyed this fabulous home!

We are planning to return to Aqua Vista in the future- it was EXACTLY what we wanted and needed- and more. We also rented Banana Republic, just behind Aqua Vista (owned by the same person) since our group was so large, and it is identical to Aqua Vista (except no elevator), with a more "beachy" decor. It was also fabulous.

As you can see, we highly recommend Aqua Vista, and can't wait to go back- you will love it too!

WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed the house so much - thank you! Our large group (8 adults, 5 kids) was very comfortable. The location couldn't have been better, and we loved looking out the windows and seeing the waves. We were all impressed with the amenities, especially in the kitchen. Everything we could have needed was right there! We would absolutely recommend this property, and hope to have the opportunity to rent again ourselves.

Galveston is back and better than ever and Aqua Vista 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.
