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.

Excellent family vacation choice

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a place on the beach that I could enjoy with my wife and young kids. This was perfect for us. The home was comfortable with enough beds for my large family (8 in all) plus three grandparents. The location was close enough to Galveston that we could go out to eat or shop easily, but far enough away that there were no crowds on the beach. In fact, there was rarely anyone else near us on the beach! The sand was different than what we were used to in Florida, but it was clean (no seaweed for us) and was perfect for building sandcastles. The kids loved splashing in the waves and playing with hermit crabs. We cooked in the house most of the time and spent many hours lounging on the deck and on the beach.

The owners and property manager were excellent to deal with--very friendly and easy to communicate with. I would highly recommend this property!

Owner's Response: Steve, Thank you for your kind words. The goal and first priority of the owners and manager is for our guests to have a fantastic, fun and worry free vacation. It sounds like that goal has been met in your stay at the house. Nothing makes us happier than to hear a good report from our guests.
