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!

Family reunion in Sunny Beach

  • 4 of 5

This was our second stay at this home. We picked it because of the convenience on the beach and only 5 min grocery run. It was under renovation during this stay, but it did not effect our trip. The home did not have floor mats this time, which isn't a great match for sandy feet. Nor did we find kitchen towels or hot pads for the oven. Other than those minor things, it's a great getaway place!

Awesome!! Heaven on Earth!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent three lovely nights here and it was AWESOME!! The pictures don't do justice for the house, its definitely very nice. The house was very clean, it had everything we needed and more. You can open the balcony gate and walk right on the beach.

The beach was very clean, and not crowded, & the neighborhood was quiet! The whole experience was just awesome!! The house is not too close or too far from anything that you want to do in town. The sunset is amazing from the balcony!! I would definitely recommend anyone looking for a nice relaxing beachfront house to stay here!! This is where we will be staying on our next family vacation to Galveston!

Perfect Girls Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we've stayed in this house for our annual girls weekend, and it's perfect. Love that it's right on the beach for quick walks and spent a lot of time reading on the rocking chairs on the front porch. The bedrooms are quiet and comfortable, the kitchen is well appointed, and the living room has a great couch for movie watching and game playing. We truly love this little home away from home!

Fabulous location and house

  • 5 of 5

You absolutely can not beat the location of this house. Fantastic beach and can even see the ocean when laying in your lovely master bedroom. House was well stocked with towels, kitchen supplies etc. First time we rented a house and the beds were already made up. Rental point of contact was responsive and very helpful. We will definitely be returning. Well worth the money!!!
