Why Nancy Foye chose Texas Gulf Coast

We loved this rental even before seeing the second floor. You can be in the cool A/C and enjoy the view of the Gulf. Watching the cattle roaming in the field across the street will show city dwellers another part of Texas.

What makes this townhome unique

Our beach rental is in a quiet area away from the busy hotel tourists crowd. A minute walk to the beach. Three full bathrooms!!! All the necessities of home will be found here.

We enjoyed our stay at Tropical Paradise. Everything you need is near by. We went to Nate's to eat two times and the food is great. We look forward to coming back soon. The owners were super helpful and were always close by.

Easy beach access

  • 4 of 5

Great condo with easy beach access. Nancy was great at communicating with me. We had 7 people - 5 kids and 2 adults. Used the sleeper sofa as there are only beds for 6.

Easy walk to the beach. There were plenty of beach toys and umbrellas for us to use. Good wifi.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Katie. I am sorry for the weather while you were in Galveston. It is in the HomeAway listing and VRBO our Townhouse sleeps 8. The sofa bed is counted as a bed. Thanks again and next time if you have more guests with you try our 3 bedroom Townhouse Homeaway # 251499 which is next door to where you where staying. It sleeps 12 considering the sofa bed and the queen futon in the living room.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time with remarkable hospitality from the owners. We were celebrating a 30th birthday with family members and arrived to an elegantly decorated slice of heaven. There were plenty of towels and basic amenities included. Several beach toys for the children so we didn't have to purchase anything. The location was a walk away from a store if you forget any basics. Most importantly a very short stroll to the beach. We would book this place over and over for a beach getaway.

Nice comfortable condo with easy access to beach

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. Our 3 kids loved the bunk bed room and there was plenty of space for us in the house. Easy walk to the beach with access to the storage room for beach supplies and wagon was a great plus. There's also a nice food market and gas station in walking distance for any supplies you might need. Great location.

Great Rental

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this property. Everything we needed was provided (towels, dishes, coffee pot, coffee filters, salt...) things that are not always provided in vacation rentals. The view on the porches were great. It was very nice to sit out there and enjoy breakfast or dinner. The beds were actually comfortable, which is also not always a given. Even the trundle bed and bunk beds. One thing I didn't realize is that it is not a stand alone house but a town home, just something to know. I was actually looking for a stand alone house because of noise but we were not bothered by noise of next door neighbors and I hope our noise didn't bother others.

It was a lovely stay and a great value.

Thank you for the care of our place and hope to see you again in the future. Our Townhouse next door is a 3 bedroom on the end of the complex if you would need more room the next time.
