About Tanya & Matthew Nguyen
My husband and I built this house for ourselves after we've exhausted our search for a perfect vacation home for our family. We started groundbreaking on February 14, 2008 and were just putting on finishing touches the weekend before Hurricane IKE made landfall on Galveston Island on September 10, 2008. Needless to say, it was our longest weekend with lots of anticipation and expectation. Fortunately, the house was practically untouched after the storm. We have been using it for ourselves and for our extended families since. Everyone just loves our house. Our priorities have changed as the kids are heading to college and we decided to begin renting out our house. So here goes the beginning of our new venture.
Tanya & Matthew Nguyen purchased this House in 2008

Nothing like advertised photos and several safety hazards
I would NOT recommend staying at this property . It is in dire need of upkeep (deep cleaning and fresh paint...inside the front door at handle was disgusting) and much needed safety improvements. There were no lights on outside stairs for coming and going at night. When I asked owner where lights were I was told they went out at last storm...there has been time to repair that prior to taking our payment.The second floor balcony had area on railing that if leaned upon it could possibly collapse and upper balcony was very poorly built...we were scared to even sit on it.
The railings on the stairs inside leading to first level of bedroom is dangerously loose. The shower in master bath was poorly built and the jacuzzi tub does not work at all...yet is featured in ad.
It’s also advertised as one block from beach...more like 2 1/2 and not easy access.
This was worst HomeAway property we have been to and I would think that HomeAway would have better standards.
We're sorry to hear of your experience at our property over the weekend. My son and I discovered the storm damage outside the patio the weekend before your arrival and we tried our best to clean up the debris. I'm sorry for not communicate with you regarding the lighting and the patio prior to your check-in for cancelation. I have been working with the contractor to address the issues. Thank you for your feedback as we continue to upkeep and make improvements to our property for our future guests.
Not as expected
Disappointed in condition of property compared to photos & reviews. Needs some tlc
I’m sorry you’re not happy with our house. To be fair, when you emailed me stating that “While closing the blinds in one of the bedrooms, the bracket for the curtain rod came off the wall and the cord for the blinds snapped. and While looking under the bed to find a screw from the bracket, the large dust bunnies were a real surprise”. I was surprised to hear but I did not question how you have managed to cause the blind to snap and the rod to fall off the wall or if you are responsible for any damages. I did, however, responded that regardless of the reasons why you’re not happy with our house and offered to issue refund if you find somewhere else to stay. My husband and I take a lot of pride in up keeping this house and we were just there the week before replacing all the lighting in and outside the house. I am also regretted that I accepted your booking request.
Excellent stay, would stay here again.
The property was great and well keep up. Lots of amenities for the ocean like boggy boards, sand castle molds, umbrellas and a wagon to carry stuff to the beach. Seating on the balcony was very pleasant and breezy even in the hottest part of the day. The house with having 3 bedrooms and 3 baths it was very comfortable and roomy with the 8 of us.
Perfect house for 2 families (7 people)
Wish there was an outdoor shower, but there was a faucet that worked to rinse off with.
This was our second stay at Vista Breeze. We enjoyed staying here. Great location. Thanks.
Great location, clean, short walk to the beach!
The beach house is in a quiet neighborhood at the west end of Galveston Island on the beach side. The wide sand beach is perfect for kids to play on the beach, fly their kites or just to have fun on the sand and for adults to take long beach walks. The house is about ten minutes drive back to Galveston. A gas station and convenience store are less than 300 feet from the sub division.
