We built this home for ourselves and appointed it with all the finest high-end features (marble spa showers, deep tub overlooking Ocean, etc.,)and furnishings (flat screen TV, leather furniture, etc.)and now wish to offer it to discerning guests who want an Oceanside vacation, but all the comforts of home.
My family and I had an amazing time at the Tuscan Villa. We came as a last minute weekend trip for our daughters’ birthdays the weekend before school started and were really concerned about the weather, however, the clouds opened up and we had sun for the last two days. The house is right on the beach, yes you have to walk a few yards but no obstruction to the view and the master bedroom and the second upstairs rooms also have balcony’s in addition to the main balcony so in the morning you wake up to the waves. Everything is kept really nice, beautiful leather couches and bathrooms with amazing tub/shower. Make sure to bring laundry detergent and paper towels, we seemed to run through those quickly and who wants to run to the store when you could be enjoying the beach. We had a great time at the Tuscan Villa and would definitely come back.
Booked this house for a week last minute without any issues.Micheal the owner was very helpful and quick to respond to our calls and text and was a pleasure to deal with. Beach house is updated and clean also well stocked for a vacation rental, sunset &sunrise views are stunning. As with any rental I'm sure one can kind find minor issues here and there. We didn't come across anything that would deter us from returning or recommending to friends and famly. Our 2 and 7 year old didn't have any issues with the tiled stairs, but I can see it being an issue for some youngsters not use to them.
I don't think I can say enough about this vacation beach rental property, it is exactly as described, beach front with a beautiful view. The home is absolutely gorgeous, and so spacious, we had more than enough room. I don't believe I have seen the beach so clean as it was this time and the view of the water from the balcony was perfect, it was a blue green, so peaceful and calming. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony drinking coffee in the mornings and adult beverages in the evening. The beach is just a few steps away so no need to haul coolers back and forth. My only negative is that I only rented for a week, next time I will spend my whole two weeks there...thank you Pope family for sharing your beautiful "Tuscan Villa" with my family...can't wait for next year !!
We went Sunday to Sunday, and when we got there, there was no toilet paper anywhere in the house and the air was on 80. I tried calling the owner, texting him, emailing him and he never responded. The next day he showed up to bring washer and dryer and I asked him if he got my messages, he said yes! He said that contract said he didn't provide those, but when I went back and looked all it said was there was no maid service. We drove four hours it would have been nice to know ahead of time to bring toilet paper. The stair case is all tile, my 6 year old while walking up there fell and skinned her leg all up and so did my husband. The pictures show sand and beach right below property, but it was all grass and you had to walk 300 feet to beach. I paid more for the beach house thinking beach was right below us seeing I'm seven months pregnant. We booked 7 months ago, so it was just disappointing how the owner treated us. A simple phone call back would have been nice, seeing we are the guest of his house!
We want to express our pure satisfaction with the “Tuscan Villa” beach rental property. The home was just as described, close to the beach, close to Galveston city and extremely comfortable. The kitchen was absolutely beautiful and well stocked.
Thank you so very much for allowing us to rent your property.
This is our second visit to the Tuscan Villa. Just as before, the house is warm and inviting, clean, beautifully decorated and both bathroom showers are totally amazing. The photos provided are exactly like the home interior. We were informed that the only firework displays for the 4th of July would be near the seawall and 37th street but at the last minute we decided it wouldn't be worth the trouble trying to find parking and fighting the mosquitos so we decided to stay in. To our surprise and amazement there were huge fireworks displays at every four point corner of the house. With the third floor balconies we enjoyed the best show ever. We absolutely adore this house and always look forward to our stay. The only negative part about the house is the main deck is in extremely poor condition. Wood is uneven and rotten in several spots. My daughter even stepped on a rusty nail that injured her foot very badly. The security gate does not latch close without some timely renigging with the hatch during every entry and exit. Based on the degrading condition we were unable to enjoy the main floor deck at all. If you have small children beware that gate and the uneven wood plats may be an issue for you. If you are planning on a visit anytime soon you must be informed of the seaweed and beach conditions. Seaweed covering most of the beach with a very small area to actually enjoy the sand. Seaweed in the water was heavier than we have ever seen it. With that comes with a horrible smell and flies everywhere. Even with those minimal negatives we enjoyed this home so much I will not hesitate to rent again. The Home owner cannot improve the beach conditions naturally but I hope he will replace the deck sometime soon. We will be back!!!!!
I will start by saying the owner is very professional and organized. All paper work was ready and the process went through swiftly. The owner also sent details of available activities nearby in case any interest would arise. Directions were on point as well. I also had an incident with one of the windows coming down as i unlocked it. I notified the owner and received a quick response. 5 Stars for the owner.
The pictures you see also show the house exactly how you will receive it. Plenty of space outside the home to relax out on the deck. The house may look awkward (in my opinion) from the outside, but definitely do not judge it from looks. The house is very cozy and convenient.
The kitchen had all the supplies that were required. There is really no need to bring any of your own utensils. All appliances and lights worked (I tested it all). I would say the house is very well maintained. I did swifter the home when I arrived (Prefer walking inside without shoes) and it picked up quite a bit of dirt. Nothing major, it's the floor, it's expected.
The house itself gets 5 stars from me. But I will identify the downsides to the home as this is probably what people want to hear on the reviews. None of this changes my opinion on this home being a 5 star rental however.
I will start off with the windows. Some of the windows were hard to open and a couple missing knobs. If the windows were too hard to open I kept them shut (Didn't want to break anything). 1 of the windows did fall when i unlocked it. It was being held up by the lock. I notified the owner once this happened and I was able to just lock it back up in place.
The Decks had many loose boards that weren't securely nailed down. It can be dangerous if you have children running around the deck. I however just placed a chair over the loose boards to prevent anyone from tripping.
The house is actually on the 2nd row of houses. It appears that some home or property that once stood in front of it is no longer there. This gives the home the beachfront view. The walk is not very far from the beach either way. Just a few steps.
The drive to the house is also a pretty far drive down. This is good and bad. You have a pretty private beach being further down the island, but it is a far drive. There is a supermarket across the street.
The outdoor shower is not the cleanest but it works. We didn't use however.
Again 5 STARS! I would come back and recommend definitely!
The NEW big attraction however is The Pleasure Pier! Its right over the water (like in Santa Monica) and has over 16 full size rides (roller coaster, Ferris wheel, etc.,) restaurants, etc.,
