Loved it !!

  • 5 of 5

Down stair by the docking pier where you can clean your catches was awesome. The home was clean everywhere. Very spacious that you can invite your friends for a big dinner too. We would like to rent this home for next year's trip again if it is available. Thank you for the opportunity renting this property.

Great location for what we wanted!

  • 5 of 5

Overall, property was very nice. Had everything we needed and plenty of room for 10 people. We were attending a party nearby on Saturday evening and needed a place close by as we were helping to decorate & set up for the party during the day. Since we were there a couple of days early, it was a nice place to do some fishing at night and close enough to drive to the beach and back. The downstairs living area was perfect for all of us to eat and visit together and was very nice. There are some stains on the upstairs carpet but that didn't matter to any of us since this was a weekend getaway. My only suggestions are that the stopper for the Jacuzzi tub in the master didn't work so we couldn't try that out and the outdoor shutters need oiling as they were hard to close up when we left. We had a wonderful time and would definitely use this place again.

Much better than the pictures!

  • 4 of 5

I rented this for my husband's 50th birthday. We had a great time despite several things. The kitchen was small, but very nice. I enjoyed cooking with my daughter and sister in law. The appliances were in good repair. More utensils are needed. There are many large non-stick pans, but only one metal spatula. The furnishings were good and beds comfortable. The best part was the outside area. We had a great time fishing. I would recommend a better ladder for those who wish to swim in the canal.

The stairs are steep, but they are in good repair and have non slip mats secured on each step.

I was a little disappointed in the contract I was made to sign the day before check in. I know it is standard and it is a residential neighborhood, but I was made to feel like I couldn't have any visitors as the property "does not allow more than 12 at any given time." The owners "reserved the right" to "enter the property at any given time" and if there were more than the allotted number, it would be a $500 fine and we would be asked to "vacate the property." I do understand that the property should be taken care of and no wild parties should be thrown, but I felt I should be able to have a few friends and family over. This was not on the website and I was not made aware of it until the day before check in, when it was too late to get a refund, nor was there a "no party" restriction on the website. In the past, I have stayed in rentals that only limited the number who can sleep overnight. There were only 3 spots for cars to be listed on the contract, but the property could park at least 5 without using the boat trailer parking which could hold another 2-3 small cars. I was able to rent additional parking from Tiki Toms which I used for family cars.

The master bathroom had 2 used bars of soap in the tub area, a very small one up on the window ledge and a almost new one in the soap dish in the tub. There was also a very used toothbrush, tooth paste and mouthwash in the medicine cabinet. I felt this was gross.

The toilets do not flush well. You have to hold down the handle until the water is gone and it may or may not flush the contents completely.

There were ants in the left hand downstairs bedroom.

I do want to emphasize that I would rent this house again and the pictures do not do it justice. We had a great time!

Stay was nice, area was nice, but the house needs to be better equipped.

  • 2 of 5

The house was great very comfortable and able to accommodate our group. There however was a lack of kitchen supplies to cook. We had to go buy pots and pans because the house had no cooking untensils and one very small pan. The toilets did not flush properly and the washer had no cold water on any of the cycles.

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.

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.
