Great 2 bedroom/2 bathroom house away from the seawall with a semi private beach.

  • 5 of 5

The property was just as the site and pictures described. The location of the property is great. The community entrance is right across the street from the beach access. It's about a 2 block walk around the community or we just drove and backed up to the ocean. We have rented many condos/homes from VRBO and HomeAway and this one was by far the best. The house seems like it was newly remodeled, very well kept up. They hold nothing back from the the soft TP in the bathrooms to the super comfortable beds. We usually get home thinking we can't wait to sleep in out own bed (a Tempurpedic) but their super thick mattress toppers make both beds so comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked with high quality items, even a Keurig coffee machine with pods. There were plenty of linens in both bathrooms and tons of extra bedroom linens in each closet. The owner even had a twin air bed blown up for us in the spare room. And we didn't even have to tell her our girls hate sharing a bed. The washer and dryer are located in the garage but along with those they give you access to everything else in there like beach chairs, beach toys, beach umbrellas, a kids basketball goal, a wagon to make the beach trech easier and even their bikes. My 11 year old is Special Needs and she was super excited to see that they had a 3 wheeled Schwinn bike just like hers. The deck is amazing. Loved that it was completely covered and with lots of seating and eating space. Every morning my special needs daughter would go out and sit in a rocker and just listen to the noises and enjoy the view. We played many a games outside on the picnic table (your Herbanz game got our youngest addicted lol). The owner met us there to provide the keys and she even offered the use of their luggage lift before she left. The condition and care the owners put in just make you feel like family. The only negative about the property was the ants and stickers in the grass kept the kids from enjoying the swing they have. But those things can't really be controlled. Thanks for opening up your home to us!!

Great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Last year we stayed at a VRBO property in Florida. This property was so well supplied compared to that one. The kitchen had knives that actually cut. There were cleaning supplies and equipment. When you see the sites that Galveston had to offer, then you could just spend your time walking on the beach. We had a great stay.

So much better than staying in a hotel!

  • 5 of 5

You have a beautiful and comfortable home. This year and last have been the best vacations of my adult life. It's the perfect location, with all the creature comforts you could ask for, and the market down the road has some excellent steaks for grilling! There's nothing like sitting on the porch first thing in the morning with a cup of coffee, or late in the evening with a cold beer relaxing and listening to the surf roll up on the beach.

I hope to be able to come back again next year! Thanks so much.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our stay. The house was very clean and well taken care of. The location is very quiet and away from the busy part of the island. The pictures are very accurate. Having all of the little extras that Elizabeth includes makes for a nice stay. Elizabeth was very nice and easy to deal with. My husband, son, and myself had a great stay.

Fantastic Beach House

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic time in Galveston and the home had so many wonderful features that made our stay enjoyable. It is a wonderful neighborhood and a short bike ride to the beach that our 7 year old enjoyed tremendously! We especially loved sitting on the porch swings, riding the beach cruisers, and grilling fresh fish every night. Our kids (age 3 & 7) loved playing in the downstairs deck area with all the toys the home provides: beanbag toss, sand area, basketball, and board games. The home also provided so many of the basics that we normally bring with us, so that was a huge plus (napkins, paper towels, hand soap, dish soap, coffee!)We look forward visiting again!
