The house was exactly as described - beautiful victorian home which has been kept true to its period, with plenty of little touches of antiques around the house (although it did mean we had to keep an especially close eye on the two younger toddlers we had with us so they didn't break anything valuable). The location was perfect, close to everything we wanted to do in Galveston - a few mins from the beach and Pleasure pier, a few blocks from the Strand, and 10 - 15 mins from Moody Garden. And the playground across the road was an amazing bonus - it was huge, with loads of space for the kids and dogs to run around. It had several different playsets making it suitable for kids of all ages. Our kids LOVED it!
The house was generally well equipped (including the sand castle kit and beach tent which came in very handy for our beach outing). The only things I would perhaps suggest is a kettle in the kitchen would be helpful, as well as a lid for the garbage bin.
Dawn and her husband were very helpful with all our questions. We especially appreciated the flexibility with the check-in and check-out times, helpful indeed when travelling with young kids.
We would definitely come back and stay here again. In fact we were so pleased by our stay we wanted to come back for the July 4th weekend but saw the house was already booked. We'll have to make sure we plan further ahead next time so we can stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thank you! The park is like having your own private playground, it is so seldom used. Glad that your children and dog enjoyed it. Will attend to having a tea kettle and garbage can with a lid. Guests have previously left the tea kettle on the stove (even with a whistle) and burned two of them. So I was a little leary of purchasing another because of fire hazard. Will try again, I apologize for the inconvenience. Hope to see you again soon.
