Why Jacob van Sant chose Galveston

This property is a hidden gem with a great view of the coast from our spacious balcony. Enjoy the beach with family and friends as our family does quite frequently. This spacious beach house accommodates the whole family with plenty of room to relax and enjoy the beach.

What makes this house unique

Within driving distance to many of Galveston's hot spots. 12 minutes from the historical strand where you will find dining, local pubs, and shopping. The house is a 7 minute drive to the seawall where there are many attractions like tours, pleasure pier, and many restaurants.

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 can...it'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.

The house was just as advertised.

  • 5 of 5

What a great family vacation we had. The minor road construction did not hinder our stay. We had such a awesome stay and the house was even better then advertise. Every thing was in working order and clean. Thank you for the use of your home.

Nice location - somewhat challenged on the details.

  • 3 of 5

The property is located close to the beach and has many nice amenities for a family or group. Logistics of the stay and information about arrival and setup were a bit sketchy, but workable via communications with the owner. Maintenance and cleanliness were a C-, some things in need of repair and some linens did not seem clean. Pricing suggested more effort would have been put into ensuring basics covered and quality.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Twelve family members ventured down from Chicago for a family birthday celebration! The location of the house was perfect. The view of the Gulf from the deck was superb. Only a house away from the beach so having coffee at the beach in the morning was a great way to start each day.

Would highly recommend the property.
