Great vacation for your family!

  • 5 of 5

My family visited this home right after it was rebuilt from Ike and the owners have simply done a fantastic job! Everything was just perfect. This is by far the best house on the entire beach! The fishing was good too! We'll be back again next year for sure!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review. We definitely think it is the best beach front house on the island, but it is great when others advocate it for us!! Cannot wait to see you next year!

Relaxing beach front property steps from the ocean with great patio space and comfortable furnishing

  • 5 of 5

Rented the property for a weekend retreat with my aunt, cousin, and sisters family. We were steps away from the beach which made for frequent walks throughout our stay. All of the furnishings inside and out were comfortable. We spent most of the weekend on the rockers on the porch, beds were very comfortable and there was great space inside to spread out. Quick easy access to Galveston so we could run to the grocery store or for meals and not have A long drive. We had such a great time that we are ready to come back.

It was cold and rainy and windy and we had the best time, ever! This is our favorite beach house in Galveston! It's comfy and cozy and splendidly beachy!. We have found no other house as close to the beach - especially when traipsing to and fro with children. As our family grows, I'm afraid we will soon outgrow this wonderful beach home. What a shame! Thank you, Mr. Miller, for sharing your house with us!

Girls' Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Last weekend, five of my best girlfriends and I said "goodbye" to our husbands and children and made the short trek from Houston to this ADORABLE house in Galveston. We were greeted by a crisp and clean interior, spacious back porch, and gorgeous ocean views. The private beach was key; we felt completely at-ease and comfortable with plenty of beach between us and other groups. We really had no set plans, and ended up never leaving the home/beach except for a lunch one afternoon and a couple of dinners. The owner is extremely friendly and accommodating; he even checked the traffic before we left and indicated that there was construction and suggested an alternate route.

We all agreed to return in maybe six months or so, and I must say a couple of us are interested in adding a visit to include the husbands and children. Book your stay; you will not be disappointed!

We had a family of 11 stay here and we had a great time. The house is perfect...well stocked and the ocean view is perfect! We sat on the porch alot enjoying the sound of the waves and the breeze was amazing. The house is decorated so nice and it very clean. Mark is awesome to deal with and I would recommend this house to anyone who wants a great to place to stay!

Family getaway

Our family had a wonderful time with much needed relaxation . The pictures are just as perfect in person . The beach was quiet as no cars are allowed on the area in front of the house .

Thank you for letting us enjoy your home for a few days !
