About Little-Sunshine

Loving family with 2 children residing in Sugar Land, TX.

Little-Sunshine purchased this house in 2007

Why Little-Sunshine chose Galveston

This is a beautiful area for a beach front home because the beach does not allow motorized vehicle. Enjoy a safe vacation with your children and loved ones without worrying about automobiles on the beach. In the front of this charming house is a long/deep stretch of sandy beach. Unpack your canopy right on the beach in front of the house and enjoy it for your length of your stay. There is nothing like a beautiful beach front house decorated with love.

What makes this house unique

Optional community swimming pool and recreation center available during the summer months for a fee.b

Exactly what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

Little Sunshine was just what we wanted for a Get-Away Gals Trip with my mom (in her 70s) and sister and sister-in-law-- all of us in our 40s with busy professional lives and children to wrangle! The house is beautiful and comfy and quiet... all the accommodations we needed. The deck looks over the ocean-- just a moment's stroll over the dunes. Beach supplies are provided-- chairs and toys and boogie boards. The beds were so comfy, even the futon gave a great night's sleep! A great place to watch the sunrise, and I even took a run on the beach during sunrise. Such a quick drive to the east side of the island where Galveston has all the tourist sites and attractions, but we were so glad to be on the peaceful west side for our stay. There is a tiny market across the street, and a bigger grocery a few minutes away. We even found a Redbox at the gas station to rent a movie to watch on the TV/bluray, and had pizza delivered from a local spot. We loved the local scene at Nate's restaurant, sunset at Watermans Restaurant and the friendly fun at Jimmys pier! Little Sunshine's owner, Michael,was quick to respond and helpful in every way. We ladies said over and over how we'd love to come back.... and even bring the husbands and kids!!

Just a short walk down a trail to the beach

  • 4 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay at Little Sunshine. The good things were that it is right on the beach, only a short little walk down a small trail through the brush covered dune. The kitchen was fully equipped with all the dishes and cookware you could need. The beds were comfortable, it has a good size patio, and a great outdoor shower to wash the sand off. There were even lots of beach toys for the kids to play with if you forgot yours. There is a full grocery store very near by called Seven Seas. The community pool is close, nice and clean and available to use for a fee. Very friendly and helpful host! There were some small, minor problems, the dryer didn't dry good and we had to run a small load many times, there was no broom to be found and we wanted to tidy up the floor as with kids and such you get crumbs, chips, sand etc..on the floor, keep in mind the patio has no covering, so on a day that it rains, you cannot sit outside, the patio doors do not open, and if you want to contact the host while there, its best to text instead of call as the cell phone reception was not too good unless you are with Verizon. We were not big fans of the steps that go up to the kitchen but that's just a personal thing and no fault of the host. We got our deposit back exactly in two weeks from Home Away as it stated. This is a nice little house and you'll enjoy your stay!! I would definitely recommend it!

A good west end spot with incredible access to a nice beach

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed great weather for our trip in mid August, and were impressed with the easy access to a beach that felt at times was our private space -- some mornings we were the only people out there! The plethora of beach toys already on property were a nice surprise that my kids really enjoyed, and I was very happy with the high quality charcoal grill (Weber Kettle in pretty good shape). The house itself is not new but well maintained, and (most importantly) the beds, mattresses and pillows seemed reasonably new and very comfortable - not something I've experienced at every place. A couple hiccups (bathroom door was locked from the inside and a blown fuse on the dishwasher circuit) were quickly resolved with a prompt response from the owners. Renters should be aware of a few things that were not issues for us but were noticeable. The one bathroom is noted in the listing but is pretty small. At capacity it would be a bottleneck. The proximity of the highway means some road noise in the bedrooms - again didn't bother us but might for some. The outdoor stairs end right at the doorway to the home. Since we have young children we had to keep a close eye on them to make sure they didn't go rushing out the door. The house is split level, with a couple of steps separating the main room from the kitchen and bedrooms and bathroom. Folks with mobility issues would need to be aware of this. The AC struggled a little bit to keep the large main room under about 75F during the heat of the day, but the bedrooms were ice cold at night. Again, none of this was a serious problem but just things we noted about the house that we thought others might like to be aware of. The kitchen was very well equipped, and we used it to cook all our meals during the week. Wifi was fast and easily accessible throughout the house, on the deck and downstairs in the breezeway. The small market/Chevron station a few miles east is very well stocked and had excellent (albeit pricey) fresh shrimp available that we enjoyed. Although we didn't fish, our neighbors/renters caught some excellent red drum in the surf off the beach. We'd absolutely rent this place again for a family front row getaway!
