Perfect House

  • 5 of 5

The house was really perfect for our group and has plenty of space and four restrooms (all with showers) which was very nice for a bigger crowd. It is about a 1-2 minute walk to the beach and has a second refrigerator/freezer which was really nice for some extra storage. There was nothing negative I could say at all about the house. Al and Joy are extremely responsive and really want you to have a nice stay. I cannot say enough nice things about them or their house

We didn’t want to leave ... we will be back again ..

  • 5 of 5

We needed a get away not far from our home in Magnolia , Texas . We are somewhat familiar with Galveston and also with the neighborhood of Beachside Village . This home was immaculate . The beds were extremely comfortable which I feel you don’t often find in rental properties . The two master suites had their own baths , great closets , nice white fluffy towels , televisions and suitcase stands . The house has a bath on the main level next to the kitchen with a huge shower and a full washer and dryer and extra room to put your extra bags , ice chest etc to get them out of the way and to help keep the living area nice and neat and not crowded with the extras . I liked that because I don’t feel relaxed with things all over the place so it was something I thought was a plus for the house :). The was an extra fridge on the mail level which we just use for our raspberry and rosemary infused water jug which saved space in the larger refrigerater . The separate sitting room on the main floor was nice to have some quite time to read , or work if you happen to have to work some while you are there . The room has doors that close you off from the main family area as well . We took several walks around the neighborhood and enjoyed looking at all the beautiful homes and the lovely green grass beltways and colorful landscapes . The walk to the beach was literally not even two minutes ! The neighborhood was close to grocery stores , Starbucks ( for those addicted to Starbucks ) restaurants etc . He home is managed by a company that will respond quickly to any concerns you might have or questions about the property . The owners are quick to respond and resolve any issue that might occur . The owners clearly didn’t mind hearing from you if you did happen to have a question or issue with something . I felt they honestly and sincerely cared that you enjoyed your stay completely . It was nice to know that if something wasn’t as it should be ( and things do happen ) that they didn’t make excuses but simply had the problem fixed that evening or the next morning without making you feel badly about notifying them . To me that is very important . There is construction close to the house and throughout the neighborhood . The pictures clearly show thus which I felt was fair . I discussed the construction and I realize it cannot be avoided . It did not bother our stay at all . We will cone again , we didn’t want to leave !! Thank you Joy for sharing your home !!

Avera "We Loved It" Review

  • 4 of 5

Al and Joy,

Your home is absolutely beautiful and we really enjoyed our stay. The only slight issue we had was that there was very little or none of the basics, i.e. body wash and shampoo. Other than that, everything was great!

Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. I am so glad you guys enjoyed our home! I am sorry if there was a miscommunication but we do not provide body wash. We state what is provided and we do provide a starter amount of some things so you don't have to worry on your first night. We provide shampoo, hand soap, dish soap and a little laundry detergent. Our thoughts are that most ladies bring what they need and men are good with shampoo. This has worked well for us so far but we will consider this suggestion for sure.

Wonderful Family Thanksgiving Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 adults and 5 children all absolutely loved our stay here. There were plenty of comfortable beds and we really appreciated having 4 full size bathrooms. The home was in great shape and the kitchen was well stocked with two refrigerators, cooking utensils, dishes, dish soaps, etc. We cooked most of our meals at the house so this was very important to us. The only issue we had was that the gas grill was not at all in usable condition. Fortunately, we had not planned meals that needed to be grilled. We have already recommended this home to some of our friends. We hope to be back!
