Lovely Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful home. It was the perfect place for our multi-family trip, with plenty of space for adults and a charming kid's room with bunk beds. the layout and decor are even prettier than the pictures, and the kitchen is awesome. Everything feels new and clean and well-cared-for. I very much appreciated how helpful and responsive the owner was. The only thing I would change is a small thing - from the pictures it looks like you have direct access to the beach from the house, but it's a short walk to one of two walking/golf cart bridges. We absolutely knew this was the case in advance and planned accordingly; it just makes for some logistical planning to get tents, chairs, toys, etc. to and from. I would recommend getting a golf cart or a parking pass for your vehicle to carry stuff. Car access to the beach is a super quick drive and costs $10 for the pass. We loved Smitten and hope to return again!

Great 4th of July Week

  • 5 of 5

Smitten is a great place to relax and enjoy the beach. The beach front location and views are great. I really enjoyed sitting out on the deck every morning. The home offers great space for a family gathering. Having 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms made the stay comfortable for everyone. The kitchen is very well equipped and the owners allow plenty of cabinet space so you put your food away (personal pet peave, I don't l like having to leave food out on the cabinet for a week). We really enjoyed the gated area at The Biscayne, we felt like we had a private beach. The fireworks show at the beach was amazing. Bring your own beach furniture and chairs to hang out under the cabin. You'll also want a golf cart or UTV to get back forth to the beach. Great place, thanks for sharing Smitten!

Luxury in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This beach house was top notch! We've spent years traveling to Galveston/Port Bolivar and staying in luxury homes. And this home did not disappoint. I so appreciate a beach house decorated bright and happy -- like you feel while at the beach--not in dark, dreary, dated decor. It looked straight from a catalog. Also, comfortable and perfectly appointed and was clean and well stocked. Great location! The beach itself was never overpopulated in front of this home--most likely due to the fact the house is located in a gated subdivision. (Be sure to rent a golf cart--it's not absolutely necessary since the beach is so close, but does make it fun!) The owner provided wonderful hospitality and great follow through for our rental which helped to make stress-free travel arrangements . We will definitely be returning!
