Arrived to a beautiful, clean, and well equipped home. Spacious and comfy. The master bedroom and adjoining bathroom was extravagant. The covered and well lit back patio was perfect for cooking on the provided grill. Fishing was great right out the back door during the day and at night under the lights from the back patio and under the water! Tiki Island was VERY peaceful and the folks around there are nice and friendly. I would recommend this vacation property to anyone looking for a warm home to stay in for a vacation. Terry and Sandra work hard to make the home "The best of Tiki Island". A big Thank You to Terry and Sandra!!!! We will be back!

Tiki house

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent spring break at Tiki House. We brought our 20ft fishing boat and it fit great in the slip behind the house. Very easy access to Galveston Bay and the Harbor by boat from Tiki House. Easy access by car to Galveston island as well as League City and Kemah boardwalk. Tiki Island is a great development with lots of beautiful homes including this one. Very spacious and roomy family room, kitchen area and huge master bedroom. Kitchen is open to the family room and has all the basics you need for preparing meals. Upstairs deck has great views, even saw barges and tugboats floating by. Great sunsets too. Downstairs is a nice covered area with a bar and swing. The owners are very nice people to work with while planning your stay. The only recommendation I would make would be to add some bedside lamps in the master bedroom. Other than that I wouldn't change a thing!

Great Fishing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a week, everything went great. We brought along our own boat and fished each morning and night. It was awesome to not have to load and unload the boat each time. There was tons of bait fish by the deck and small crabs (that was all that came into my son's trap). Throwing out traps and nets seemed to entertain kids for hours. We didn't have much luck fishing from the deck, but we didn't really try too long either. There is also a pond across the street with fish. A bait shop, golf cart rental, and 24hr ice machine are at the front of the neighborhood. If you travel to the bait shop by boat, be careful it is very shallow (1-2ftmax). Everything you needed was at the house, cold a/c and comfy beds. If you forget anything the grocery store, sporting goods store, and super Target are about 5-10minutes away in Galveston. Plenty of tourist things to do too for kids and adults. The location was great, and the community the house is in is wonderful, everyone is friendly. Very quiet and peaceful/relaxing. Can't beat the price when you consider everything you are getting compared to a hotel. Owners do a great job, and answer any questions you may have. Can't wait to go back.
