Why The Owner chose Texas Gulf Coast

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Fantastic time!

  • 5 of 5

Just would like to say that we have been renting once to twice a year down on the Galveston/Surfside coast for over 10 years now, and I would say this week has been the best. First of all, Michael (The owner) was very professional, and conducted business safely. The description on VRBO site is accurate, great view of the beach, clean, and classy. Someone wrote a review that is was long walk to the beach, which was inaccurate. It was less that 25 yards, and the beach was clean. Also, this was the first year that we had no mosquitos.....No one had any bites. We also enjoyed the Westend Marina, which was about 5 minutes away, great food, and atmosphere. I highly recommend this Villa.

Fantastic Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 enjoyed our stay at Tuscan Villa. Owners were very easy to work with and the house was just as described. Easy beach access and home upgrades were very nice. We would definitely rebook in the future.

Great family getaway , excellent accommodations with stunning view.

  • 5 of 5

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.

What more can I say?

  • 5 of 5

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 !!

House was nice, the owner not so much

  • 3 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: I guess I'll have to the emotional state of a 7 months pregnant woman. The woman's emails texts and phone calls at 8:30 pm on a Sunday night demanded that we have someone deliver a role of toilet paper to her right then!......(I did on a following day) Normally, we do provide the 1st role of toilet paper, however the housekeeper overlooked it that day. Our lease does say that the guest is responsible for all expendable so, and her young capable, but apparently not too good with stairs, husband could have walked or driven the 200 feet across the street to the convenience store for TP. BTW, there IS maid service provided at the end of the rental and itIS included in the rental fee! It's unfortunate the child skinned her knee, but this is the first We are hearing about it, either from her or indeed anyone else. BUT, to rate our home 3 stars because her husband tripped on the stairs and there was grass in the sand between the house and the beach is puzzling. If she really studied the house before renting, maybe sHe should have noticed that the main VRBO picture for the home shows grass in the sand! (By law we are not allowed to alter natural sea grata in the sand dunes). Lastly, I Guess if you're 7 months pregnant maybe the 25-30 yards to the water does feel like 300 feet--I can sympathize, but it's not! The headline of the 5 Star review below say it all...What lol you see is what You get, and It remains that true! The new washer and dryer unit we installed for her and all the other guests will follow her is indicative to our co mittens to quality.

"Tuscan Villa" on Galveston Island

  • 5 of 5

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.
