Great vacation spot!!

  • 5 of 5

We came down for the last few days of our spring break to get away from the city and enjoy a little beach life!! There were two families and a grandparent and foreign exchange student from Germany. There was something for everyone and the beach house worked out perfectly for our group! Nice set up with the private bedrooms on the main level and loft with other beds for the kids upstairs!! The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed for cooking all of our meals there, plenty of nice outdoor seating for everyone and the weather was just perfect for the kids to enjoy the great beach and ocean - and others to just have a peaceful moment to read a book on the awesome decks!! Great location with grocery nearby and close for fishing too! Will definitely book again and have told other friends about it too! Probably the most beautiful sunrises that I have ever seen since moving to TX twenty years ago!

Wonderful place. Perfect Location.

  • 5 of 5

We brought our mom down to Galveston to celebrate her 70th birthday. Our whole family loved the house and the location. The interior is tastefully designed and very homey. The back deck features an unimpeded view of the ocean. The quiet beach is just steps away. And it's only a 15-20 minute drive into downtown Galveston if you want to enjoy the town. I highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a fun, peaceful time at the beach!

This is a wonderful house to stay in with a family. Located right on the beach the kids had fun everyday hunting for shells and looking for crabs at night. View is outstanding. House had everything we needed including good wifi. I caught several fish in the surf right in front of the house that made for some good dinners! Highly recommend dinner at the West End Marina which is just down the road a short way.

Excellent Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this beach house! It was the perfect place to go with our young children because it is located right on the beach! The house was plenty big and the decks were wonderful! Overall, it was a GREAT vacation for all! The owner was easy to work with and dealt with an AC issue within hours of being notified. I highly recommend this rental for others and I hope to be back again sometime. Enjoy!!

Owner's Response: Our worst nightmare is for any of our guests to have problems with anything in the house while they are there. We installed a new A/C in spring of 2015 hoping to avoid these inconveniences. You were so patient and understanding. I wish all my guests were as wonderful as you.

This would be our 3rd year in a row staying at this wonderful beach house. The house is exactly how it looks and seems. When we arrive, the house is always clean and so welcoming. Carolyn is so easy to work with and will help out in any way she can. I can say we are planning our trip for next September already. I promise you, once you stay, you will never have to look any further.....Why may ask.......because you just found your PERFECT GETAWAY....

Thank you Carolyn for all the amazing memories you have let my family and I make at your beautiful home.
