About Shannon Galway

We live in Fulshear, TX and have been regulars in Bermuda Beach for over 10 years. We have 2 small children and a passion for the beach.

Shannon Galway purchased this house in 2012

Why Shannon Galway chose Galveston

This property is perfectly located. The empty lot between the house and the beach is also ours, which gives our growing family plenty of room to play after getting rinsed off from the beach. We have been regulars to Bermuda Beach for over 10years and saw the absolute devastation caused by Hurricane Ike. We chose to purchase this home in part to support a redeveloping community we love.

What makes this house unique

This home has a wonderful yard overlooked by the oversized deck. If you have small children, you will not be disappointed!

Great Family Rental

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! House was clean, updated and well laid out. It was perfect for three families. Loved the large deck, view of the ocean and all the kids beach toys available for use.

Great location, views are fantastic, and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderful. Beds were comfortable and the place was roomy and has a perfect spot near the water. Kitchen was great!!! It was well stocked and organized. The neighbors were really nice as well. We had a fabulous time. Wish we could have stayed longer. Definitely going to stay here again.

Great location for sure

  • 5 of 5

To start the house is huge. At least it felt that way. Master suite is on the opposite side of the house from the living room. Makes for very quiet. The master bath is a real bonus also. Great walk in shower. The bed is so comfortable I have to buy one for myself. 2 adults and 3 kids stayed. Everybody had their own rooms. Only 2 rooms had to share a bath. They already do at home so it was more than ok. Under house parking for 3 cars. We drive a Toyota Tundra and there was plenty space.

The wrap around patio is wonderful. It is nice to be able to sit there and just see water. No house in front of you obstructing the view. :) The outside shower with hot water was the best thing ever. That was definitely used everyday, so no tracking sand and water through the house.

The location was the bonus for sure. You are at the beach and have nice and quiet. No street lights to obstruct the star gazing. But you are close enough to go to the grocery store or the Pleasure Pier if you want to. Go Kart track was close by too. There was a thunderstorm the night before we left. AMAZING. Nothing like lightning over the ocean. Makes for beautiful pictures.

DO NOT bring chairs, floats or boogie boards. They have all of it downstairs in the storage room. Just pack your bathing suits and beach towels. It was a great spring break. We will be back for sure.

Homely, comfortable house, with spectacular views of the sea

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, comfortable house, feels like home from home. Plenty of room inside, with good sized bedrooms and bathrooms. Master bedroom huge, with one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in.

Great kitchen area, with everything you need to cook, including some pantry items, like seasonings, cooking oil, herbs and spices.

Well positioned just out of the main town area, only a 10 min drive to supermarkets, shops, bars and restaurants.

Loved the comfortable, relaxed feel to the property. Spent a good deal of time sitting on the veranda in the sun, listening to the sea, watching the Pelicans fly past. Even saw some Dolphins!

First time I've ever booked a rental, and we've travelled over from the UK. Will definitely be coming back again.

Labor Day Weekend

The house was exactly as advertised with plenty of room. Next door neighbors were very nice and house exceeded expectations.

After my original review had misinformation sternly pointed out to me by owner- I will attempt to get it right.

We inaccurately referred to this as a condo and it is a house. The size reminded me of a condo and another review referred to this as a cabin. So, I guess this is not a singular opinion.

Although I would not say the property was unclean - the detail cleaning like blinds and under sofa we cleaned when we saw the dust and popcorn respectively. We shared the sentiment that the carpet was worn down - as another review stated. I also felt that the paint on the walls was ver muttled.

Far more concerning was the deck and rails that gave splinters easily- including for our sweet toddler.

My boys left glow dough in one set of sheets - something I didn't know or I would have happily cleaned- and I was charged an extra cleaning fee and a fee to replace the sheets. Since I have cleaned this silly stuff up more than once I have no confidence that anyone tried or that replacing sheets are as expensive as I was charged.

This is not a bad place to stay- Galveston is lovelier than usual this year and the beach is fabulous.

Owner's Response: Disappointed as well… If interested, I can send the “sternly” worded response to anyone that asks. I’m sure you will agree that it is anything but. Unfortunately, I’m only given 2500 characters to respond to this review so I can’t post it here. We have always made a huge effort to make sure that all our guests are happy, satisfied, and above all else, want to come back. Prior to this guest, our house has a 4.9 star review record in over 30 reviews. This is a nearly perfect record of 5 stars spanning 4 summers. I feel our record speaks for itself. Does my house have a bad paint job? Perhaps some don’t like the color choices. Is my rental a condo, a cabin, or a house? It’s a freestanding 4 bedroom, 3 bath, 1600sf structure, with a 1500sf deck, 60 steps to the beach. Is the detail cleaning perfect? I guess not for all people, but we do make a darned good effort to get it as clean as we can. Does the deck have splinters? It’s a 4 year old wooden deck made from pressure treated lumber. In four summers we’ve never received this complaint. Regardless, we spent time last week sanding splinters we found and re-seating nailheads that were protruding. I’m glad the damage was mentioned. The sheets, bed rails, carpet, and wall to be exact. We now know that “Glow Dough” is a green slime that children play with. Perhaps there is a trick to cleaning the damage left behind. If it was that simple I feel it would have been prudent for this guest to take care of it before leaving. They chose not to and so I had to clean it. My cleaning crew was not exactly excited to attempt to clean a slimy substance of unknown origin found in a set of bedsheets. I refunded 2/3 of the damage deposit and kept $100 for the cleaning and new sheets. I’ve tried contacting this guest directly to resolve this. I’ve even made concessions in increasing the amount of money refunded. There were zero complaints from this guest in the 6 day stay nor the 1 week afterwards until the damage was mentioned. I am willing to accept this review as a lesson learned and move on. Please contact me directly with any questions regarding this review and the circumstances leading up to it. Thanks, Shannon G
