About the property

We want to invite you into our Beach House. We looked, waited and found the perfect location and home and this is it. You will just love our Galveston Beachfront property that is located in the Sea Isle community. If you visit Galveston feel free to drive by and take a look at our home. Toes in the Sand has 3 large bedrooms, a loft with a trundle bed and a sleeper sofa pit group. Enough room for you and several of your friends and relatives. Our home will sleep up to 12. New hurricane windows give you an awesome view of the beach from almost every room. All the beds are made with fresh linens prior to your arrival. We look forward to your business.

About Walt Burger

We live in Sugar Land and are so excited to rent out our home to you.

Walt Burger purchased this house in 2009

Why Walt Burger chose Texas Gulf Coast

We bought this property because it is directly on the beach and completely remodeled since Ike, but mostly for the wonderful views from the deck.

FABULOUS WINTER WEEKEND RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5

BEAUTIFUL place! Plenty of room for gathering of families and two small dogs for 60th birthday celebration. My daughter thought I was crazy to want to spend it at the beach in the winter but quickly changed her mind!! A few steps and you ARE literally "toes in the sand" or the ocean, winter shelling, beautiful walks on the beach, ocean sunsets. Why wait for summer? My grown kids had thought we'd leave the property for other activities in town but all quickly decided we wanted to spend every moment possible there in this comfortable home with all amenities and spectacular views or on the beach. Cooking was easy and agree, kitchen is larger than pictures show. Walt and Vicki are AWESOME--so helpful, kind, prompt with answers. I can't recommend this property highly enough. Only hope we can all return for another visit!

House not as represented in pictures

  • 2 of 5

Would have rated at 1 Star but rated 2 Stars simply because we were at the beach.

We made a nice time of our stay but wish the owner had presented current pictures of the property on VRBO. The pictures on VRBO were made in 2009 and the sea air has certainly done it's wear and tear on this house in the years following. Besides this, the inside of the house was less than clean and upkeep was at a minimum. This house seriously needs a complete, top to bottom cleaning. Before we left, we cleaned this house probably twice as good as it was before we got there. Here's a list of things we thought less than advertised:

CONS:

(A) House and deck in serious need for new paint job / peeling paint everywhere.

(B) Dirt/sand in the tracks of sliding glass door look as if it hasn't been cleaned in years.

(C) Dirt/Sand in all window sills

(D) Ceiling fan blades in living room covered in dirt/dust.

(E) Bathtub / shower both have mold around base that hasn't been cleaned in years

(F) Return air filter looks as if it has never ever been cleaned

(G) Sofa has been seriously used / is no longer comfortable - it also has tears in it that aren't pictured

(H) Second bedroom bed had black hairs in it. - we weren't going to use it anyway but...

I wish there was a place we could upload pictures that we took as proof of what I've written. My wife and I felt as if this property should've been about $75-100 less per night. We made a nice time of it as any day at the beach is a good day. We simply weren't prepared (led to believe) for what we found. Overall disappointed in this property. We WOULD NOT recommend to anyone at the price they're asking. Our thoughts were that, if they charge as much as they do, they should certainly plow back some of their income to upkeep......at very least a very good cleaning 4 times per year.

PROS:

(A) Very, very clean, comfortable bed in Master

(B) Kitchen, bathrooms are well equipped

(C) The beach - very private and quiet

To the owners.....Since we were not informed of the poor condition of your property, we didn't deem it necessary to contact you before posting negative review. The truth shall set you free. Bob & Sandy / Katy, TX

Beautiful, comfortable, and GREAT Location

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Beautiful house with the best views. All the comforts of home here. The beach is right in front of the house. We could watch the kids play on the beach from the balcony. About a 15-20 min ride to the seawall to enjoy all the great restaurants and shopping. Convenient store across the street from this house. This house has everything you will need. All kitchen items you can think of, spices, coffee, tea, cleaning materials, laundry soap, flash lights, etc... Well stocked for your convenience. Good water pressure in the showers. The kids LOVED the loft above the kitchen. The owners are good people. Answered all my questions and very friendly. We will be back to stay here again in the future. We loved the place.

The home is a excellent size the open floor plan in the main living area is perfect for entertainment. Lots of seating and a beautiful view of the gulf off the large deck. The kitchen is nicely stocked and is user friendly. Really glad we booked this home.

We Will Be Back for Sure

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We stayed for a week and had a great time. The house was fantastic and had all the amenities of home. We aren't strangers to Galveston, but had never rented a beach house from VRBO before. It was great and I would recommend it to anyone. This house was very roomy, had wifi, a great kitchen and even a gas grill. The owner was VERY easy to work with and made our stay great. Our kids spent the week collecting sea shells and playing on the beach. Large tv in the living room and cable made the evenings with our younger kids easy. We will rent this house again!

A great getaway

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

The house was a perfect getaway for our anniversary! Just the two of us this trip, but clearly plenty of room for family and friends! The view was stunning whether inside from the 180 degree wall of windows or relaxing out on the deck! It is located far enough out on the west end to feel quiet and relaxing, yet not so far we couldn't go into town to different restaurants and shopping. On days we wanted to "stay home", we enjoyed the Sand Bar which was located just across the highway, in the Sea Isle neighborhood. The owners were helpful and only a text away, should we need them ~ but we didn't because the house was very well-equipped and written instructions/helpful tips were throughout the property. Everything felt clean and cared for. If you are deciding between other similarly priced vrbo's, I would recommend going with this one. In my research, it seems to offer more for your money. We look forward to returning to Toes in the Sand beach house again!!
