Son's Bday getaway

  • 3 of 5

The beach house needed a little work. No WiFi and when asked if had no response. Had to call owner to get access information I assumed owner would have sent information before my arrival. Kitchen was clean with nice cooking utensils bathroom was updated as well. Need to put central air because the ac units was not enough very hot during the day even with a/c on 70. Had bad mosquito infestation in the whole beach house, don't know where they were getting in from but both bedrooms had dozens that we had to kill. May have come in thru a/c vents. Living room tile was coming up as well as needs a new sofa had tears in it that they tried to camouflage with a throw blanket.

Comfortable Secluded Vacation Home Yet Close to Galveston

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was extremely comfortable. We really liked that the property was in a less-traveled area of the coast yet close enough to attractions like Sea Center, the Sea Wall at Galveston, and Moody Gardens.

The accommodations were comfortable and is well-equipped with A/C units that keep the home cool. The kitchen and bathroom have been recently updated and have all the amenities needed for a family.

We highly recommend this property.

Dukes,300918ha

  • 2 of 5

Paint hides a lot of things, There was only one AC in one of the bed rooms that worked well. The other 2 ac units did not do very well. It got hot in side during heat of the day and did not cool down until approximately mid night. The bath room remodel was nice. The location is good especially with beach across Bluewater highway and the boat ramp to intercoastal canal.

Excellent Beach Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We had an awesome experience staying at "Dukes!" We did have two very minor complaints. There were conflicting check-in times given, and the internet really didn't work very well. But we used the extra hour we had before check-in to do a little shopping in Lake Jackson, and as for the internet, we really enjoyed the extra togetherness when we couldn't play on our phones! The owners provided lots of board games, DVD movies, a TV in each bedroom and the living room, a very nice radio/CD player, plenty of towels and washcloths, beach toys, a beach umbrella, a rolling cart to take a cooler or chairs to the beach, patio furniture, sun lounging chairs, and all the kitchen essentials. The washer and dryer are very modern. In short, we would stay there again!

Overall stay was.below expectations

  • 3 of 5

The rental is in need of some repairs inside and outside. The floor needs to be replaced. The linoleum is torn in several places. We rented this house for two nights. There were four of us and there was not enough toilet paper and paper towel considering we were gone all day on Saturday. There was no internet and no instructions for operation of tv's, cable boxes or the washer and dryer. The grass also needed to be cut and there were several items thrown in the high grass behind the house. Once these minor issues are corrected. This property will be very nice. Houston, Tx
