Good, but could be better
Beautiful house, but is for sale, and therefore minimal decoration...and it feels like it is for sale....cleared for sale look....bookshelves empty etc....
master porch, just bench swing, no chairs to sit and see fantastic view....best view from house...
..no chairs to sit in bedrooms except downstairs bedroom...
Short on waste baskets, laundry room, dressing room master, bathroom, and other areas....
Total shortage of mirrors in bedrooms, no full length mirrors....and only mirrors to put on makeup is small bathroom mirrors over sinks, and sinks have no counter space to layout toiletries or makeup items.
Master has no mirrors in room or closet or desk area...
Master bathtub is such no where to put soap, etc while taking bath...lots of wasted space in master bath...
Lighting in entire house is poor, yellow dim lights....especially the closets,...really bad....needs updated lighting in entire house....gives a dreary feeling....it bothered everyone.
Kitchen lacked many cooking utensils, especially knives for prep work, only two huge knives available...
Pool is small but really nice to have, and they provide pool towels.
Great to have elevator! Worked well.
No direct access to beach...
Beach towels, beach toys, carts, awnings, umbrellas, etc not provided, bring your own....
To go to beach, make sure you bring everything because it is long jaunt to go back to house....it is a long walk....even though beach access is on the other side of next house....walking the LONG boardwalk and ramps, to lowland, across thru dunes, is very hot! To get to beach, ....the kids did not enjoy this walk, nor adults....if they took out the triple ramp and just had a cross over, would be best....
Beach area clean and beautiful.
Overall....house was fine, beautiful, clean....the manager great to work with.
This house is a great one for your group. It’s well appointed and has a good, open layout in the kitchen/dining/living room area for family to gather before, during and after meals.
Beach town House
This house is beautiful. It’s convenient to ride bike to Sea Wall, however the beach is a little desolate. It’s a public beach so not properties fault. I would also suggest a full length mirror somewhere in the house, a few more utensils such as a wine opener be added. The mosquitoes are crazy right now , but that’s due to all the rain. Bring bug spray. I would also suggest a mid way through cleaning service as 7 days is a long time not to have a light maid service for this size Property. There is also a need for counter space in the bathrooms. Single sinks with no place for cosmetics or to place hair tools. The pool after long days at beach was necessary. Loved the patios and pool areas. Just wish there were ceiling fans for heat and mosquitoes. The Porch restaurant is only opened half the week and bike, Ice cream place was not staffed. This needs to be open during summer months. Development is still very new and construction going on. Overall a nice stay, just needs a few adjustments and it would be great!
We are glad you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for your comments, we will certainly give them consideration.
We look forward to seeing you in the future.
This property is Beautiful! We had a very nice, relaxing stay! My only complaint is that it is very pricey! We paid as though it were high season, but Beachtown was like a ghost town. I imagine the boardwalk to the beach gets cleaned up during the season. Bird poop all over it & overgrown bushes. Really a very nice place that I would rent again, but the price per night seems excessive!
Dear Teresa Bright:
Thank you for your review and your comments. We will certainly revisit the dune walk over and address your concerns.
Look forward to seeing you in the future.
The pool is a game changer
Beachtown is a wonderful community in Galveston where we have stayed on multiple occasions over the years. The homes are elegant and the community is charming. This time we chose to stay in a home that offers a private pool, and it made all the difference. After enjoying the waves, we showered up and enjoyed a lovely shaded pool. Pure joy all day long.
Thank you for your kind words.
Hope to see you again soon!
Had high expectations after a great Spring Break in Seaside Florida, and this house exceeded! The heated pool was used frequently by our teens, and the high ceilings and layout were fabulous. Overlooked info re: renting beach chairs in advance (they looked great). Actually is 4 bedrooms with bunk room near master. Elevator worked well for luggage & groceries. Nice to be able to park two cars in garage. Loved the porches and swing outside master bedroom! Attentive managers and groundskeepers. Spotless home and comfortable beds- would definitely recommend and rent again.
