Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Karen,

This is Duncan again, we rented Big Blue last weekend. I had to rush out EARLY sunday morning, but I wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed the weekend. The house was just perfect for our trip and we had a wonderful time. I definitely had a couple of family members bring up the same place for next year!

Thanks so much. Have a good rest of the summer.

Big Blue

  • 5 of 5
Big Blue was perfect for our family vacation. There was plenty of room, the beach & Pleasure Pier are 1 block away, and was central to all the activities, such as the 4th of July parade, the fireworks, great restaurants, the farmer's market, the piers where you can find fresh seafood to cook on the grill in the backyard, and, of course, the beach itself. I would absolutely recommend Big Blue to anyone with a large family like ours! Karen was very helpful with anything we needed.

Christmas week

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I and our two dogs decided to spend Christmas away since my son and daughter in law weren't spending the holiday with us this year. The house was huge, lots of space for a big crowd downstairs. THe house is two blocks from the beach and Pleasure pier. We walked everywhere.
The house was decorated with a tree and decorations. The yard is completely fenced so we could leave the back door open and let the dogs go in and out whenever they wanted.
We would definitely stay here again

Great location and living space

  • 5 of 5
We got more than we bargained for with the big blue! The location was perfect for large group not wanting to drive everywhere. The kids were very happy with the beach toys that were available for them to play with. The house itself was very clean and spacious. Karen was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting a clean and well stocked place to stay that is central to most activities and eating establishments. Thanks again Karen for letting us stay at your beautiful home!

family vacation

We had a wonderful time in Galveston, the location of the house could not have been better. It was nice to walk to the beach and the pier with our big crew. Karen was very sweet when she came to let me in to the house. We were a little envious of Big yellas pool in the back yard since we could see it from our deck... :)

thank you the great house, the porches were so wonderful to be able to go sit on in the evening after a day at the beach, i appreciated the fenced back yard for my dogs.

Great Experience at Big Blue!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay at Big Blue! Love that we could walk to the beach, restaurants, etc. Being provided with beach towels, beach toys, etc. was a plus. Owner was very nice and helpful. As far as eating out, avoid Bubba Gump's and be sure to visit Fishtails. (Jesse, server at Fishtails, took great care of us!)

Cant Beat Big Blue!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Have no complaints about this property. 5 minute walk to pleasure pure and the beach it is in a perfect location. Have fast food and sit down restaurants across the street and also gift shops and places to buy beach toys. The house its self was perfect for my group of 13. We enjoyed it thoroughly and there was plenty of room for everyone to sleep comfortably and the kitchen is very decent sized and spacious. We usually take a trip every year and have stayed different places but next time we come we will definitely look to stay in this house again. and Karen was great in working with us and if we had any problems with parking or anything she accommodated us with extra permits. Thanks for making my Galveston experience a perfect one and one i cant forget. I LOVE BIG BLUE lol

BIG BLUE is all about LOCATION! And it doesn't get any better than this. Just 1 block from the beach and Galveston's newest attraction 'The Pleasure Pier' scheduled to open in May 2012. Just a short stroll and you can have your feet in the sand or be riding a roller coaster. Walking distance to restaurants and shopping. On the trolley route to downtown and The Strand. Moody Gardens and the Schlitterbahn are just a short drive away.
