House fit our needs perfect

  • 5 of 5

House was clean. Plenty of room. Set up is very good. The view was nice as well. We had two boats: a Shoal Water and an Epic and there was plenty of room for both even with the owners boat on the slip. Only suggestion I have is to put a slip resistant mat in the master bath jacuzzi. No accidents, but the potential is there to slip. We rented trailer space at Tiki Tom's fenced in lot for the three days we were there to allowed plenty of room to park vehicles.

sadly disappointed

  • 1 of 5

Our family rented this property for a family reunion, which included my 88 yr old parents. No where in the description or pictures did it include the steep stairs on the outside of the house. My daughter fell down the outside stairs; my parents went home after the 1st night. The beds were lumpy, uncomfortable and generally didn't smell fresh. Roaches were found in several places and their droppings. The slats on the porch, just as you arrived at the top of the outside stair, were loose, allowing small children to fall (thankfully that never happened!). The pier was broken on one side where the ladder was located. We left the house a day early because everyone was just worn out.

We have rented 5 different times from VRBO properties, and 4 out of 5 have been very disappointing; we will not return.

The rental agent was not welcoming and if this were my home to rent, I would not allow her to represent me.

Great again!

  • 5 of 5

The weather was HUGELY uncooperative! Our 22' boat is not set up for 18 mph sustained winds, but the house was great as ever. We had 6 adults, and 5 children. The house accommodated all fine. Had a little trouble with the thermostat, and this is our second stay and I have yet to see underwater fishing lights. I'm not sure if there are actually any. All in all, another great vacation at this house. We will be back.

Great with reservations

  • 4 of 5

We accomplished, and the property provided everything that we intended. My only reason for not giving 5 stars are annoyances at best. The underwater lights were not working, so the kids that were with us got to see, and watch the fish at the neighbors, but not be able to catch them from the dock. Another is that we had 9 guests out of the 14 that the place can hold. There wasn't even enough silverware for our 9 to eat at the same time. And lastly, The A/C was almost non existent in two of the bedrooms.

Best of both worlds....private waterfront home located within minutes of Galveston's tourist attractions - Beaches, water sports, boating, fishing, The Pleasure Pier, Schlitterbahn, Moody Gardens, many fine restaurants, The Strand downtown shopping. And after you've enjoyed everything Galveston Island has to offer, relax in your own private Tiki Paradise.
