We enjoyed another relaxing and fun week at the Salt Kettle! The floor plan is perfect for families and the location can't be beat. The deck is our favorite hang out spot in the afternoon / evening; it is sheltered in colder weather and shady in warm weather. An amazing sunrise can be seen with a cup of coffee on the living room couch too. Love this place!
Loved the house especially the large balcony. Nice groomed partially fenced in yard for dog. Easy access to beach. Biggest problem were the giant "vampire" mosquitoes. Bug spray didn't keep them off husband. Tried repellent wrist bands. Didn't work. So couldn't enjoy lower deck tiki bar or play ping pong where mosquitoes were worse. Also ants in kitchen (coming in from window) took over entire bag of food items just before departing. Otherwise, very nice bedding. Very cool a/c!
We loved the house. Very kid friendly. Never rented a beach house before but definitely would rent this one again. Great location, loved the porch & the view. Had just about everything you could possibly need.
Place is well maintained and comfortable. Great spot in the beach. Very clean. Our new goto spot for Galveston.
My family had a great time at the SALT KETTLE over the week of Thanksgiving. 4 adults and 3 kids sleep soundly and comfortably after full days at the beach. The deck is definitely the best part about this house; the view is lovely and you can feel like you are on the beach without the wind or sand. The kitchen is well-equipped (we cooked a full Thanksgiving dinner and had all we needed except the turkey pan, which we brought). Everything is clean and works. Having a little fenced in area for our dog was a super bonus!
We had a very nice weekend at the Salt Kettle rental. The porch overlooking the beach with lots of seating was fabulous. It had just rained before we got there which made the pathway to the beach very muddy and full of mosquito's so I would recommend bringing bug spray. Because they don't allow cars on this section of the beach it wasn't very crowded, which was nice. The downstairs shower and bathroom were a nice amenity. The boys really liked the ping pong table! We had an issue on the second day with ants in the kitchen, they appeared to be coming up between the oven and the counter. The coffee machine isn't in the best shape, I would recommend a getting a new one. Lastly, for a $100 cleaning fee I was surprised that our check-out instructions said that we needed to make sure all dishes were unloaded from the dishwasher. Luckily we had time to wash and put them away before we left, but in other rentals I have been in they only ask that you start the dishwasher before leaving. Additionally, I would recommend a good spring cleaning to get rid of spiderwebs and dust under beds and in corners.
We had several questions before our rental date and the owner was very good about returning my emails and getting back to me promptly. Pictures and descriptions in listing are accurate.
The town of Galveston with all its entertainment, shopping and restaurants is a 20 minute drive away. The neighborhood swimming pool, fishing pier, and restaurant are available to guests.There is a good supermarket five miles away.
