Beach Abode Brings Boundless Bliss

  • 5 of 5

We planned a trip for 6. Only 5 of us went, but we could have just as easily taken 8. The house was spacious and comfortable. It had great lighting, ample living spaces, plenty of towels, and a well-stocked kitchen. Having 2 bathrooms was great. The front deck is huge and we spent hours in the lovely deck chairs just listening to the ocean. We brought food for breakfast and lunch, and went out to Galveston's fine restaurants for dinner. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook our meals on-site. We even did a brats and dogs lunch using the downstairs picnic table(tables, 3 actually) and full-sized grill. The A/C was running smoothly, and kept the inside cool and dry. The beach is so close you don't need to drive. And the outside shower on the house got all that salt and sand off perfectly. We would definitely use this house again on future trips.

Great Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful week of family time. Our family takes this trip every year. The area in which this house is located is peaceful and close to the beach. Thanks to Jacob for staying in touch with us during our stay to make sure we had everything we needed. We rented both of their properties which are right next door to each other. Plenty of room for all of my large family.

Good location

  • 3 of 5

This property has a great location close to the beach and close to Galveston. The owner was very responsive and helpful. The only issue is that there is only 1 bathroom for the 3 bedrooms on the main floor. The downstairs bathroom is great for the people staying downstairs in the bedroom but for the people upstairs you have to go outside to use it and in to their bedroom. The outdoor shower was not working so we were sharing 1 bathroom. I loved the deck.

Flip Flops Beach House, Galveston, was a wonderful Home. This was our third year.

  • 5 of 5

Flip Flops beach house is close to the beach and has all of the amenities of home. We enjoyed swimming in the ocean, barbecuing and gathering on the deck in the evening to play games and eat our meals, and then again in the morning, to watch the sun come up, all the while, listening to the rush of the waves and seagulls crying. The property is conveniently located near all of the main attractions Galveston has to offer, yet is a private and lovely place to relax when you want to spend quiet time. This beach house is an absolute treasure, and we will make this a family tradition for years to come.!

Wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time! The house is clean, comfortable, and has everything you need for a great stay. Just make sure to bring toiletries, toilet paper, paper towels, and food. Walmart is about 5-7 minutes away so it is easy to pick up groceries when you arrive in Galveston. Our party included 4 adults and 8 kids and there was ample living and sleeping room for everyone without feeling crowded. The house is very close to the beach (I'm guessing maybe 50 yards). The beach was clean, quiet, and limited in the amount of people. The view of the ocean from the beach house is beautiful.

Jacob was wonderful to rent from He is very friendly and helpful and answered calls and texts immediately if needed. He obviously works to maintain the home well. We will definitely be staying at this home again as soon as we's a gem!

Good house for the price

  • 3 of 5

Good proximity to the beach. Other houses I've stayed at are in better condition, but the price is lower than a lot of houses this close to the beach. The kitchen was a tight squeeze so for the three families we had here so we took turns prepping meals so we could get around, but even though the space was small we had everything we needed to make meals and even bake a cake. Beds were comfortable, loved having an enclosed outdoor shower for when we came back from the beach. The last night we stayed close to the house and used the owner's inflatable pool and some toys so our kids could slash around while the adults relaxed on the deck. Owner responds quickly to texts etc. When communication is necessary.
