Great

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 6 nights at Playa Romantica! The house has a great view of the ocean and is in a great location for getting to and from Galveston! There were a couple of issues but the owner quickly responded and was apologetic! We would definitely return to this house again.

Great Vacation Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our time at this beach house. The place felt more like a home away from home. The living room was large and well decorated and the kitchen was well equipped with plenty of appliances and utensils. We cooked all our meals and spent a lot of family time in the living room, the ground-level picnic area and at the beach (which was only steps away). There were no mosquitoes or flies which was quite amazing at this time of year. This house had an easy-to-connect wifi and lots of games and puzzles to entertain the family. We have rented several houses in Galveston for our vacation over the years and Playa Romantica is by far our family's most favorite place. Thank you Karen for sharing your beautiful home with us. We hope to be back again next year. :-)

beautiful and convenient

  • 5 of 5

we brought 4 adults, 5 kids. There was room for all, plenty of indoor and outdoor seating, quiet neighborhood, we felt very much at home. With Gas grill and kitchen oven, microwave, and dishwasher, assortment of pots and pans and other dishes, we prepared and ate all our meals here. Few homes have such convenient access to the beach.

Super family vacation property!

  • 5 of 5

Being steps away from the beach made this property very special especially for young children. Having beach toys and chairs at the property meant there was no need to bring your own. The house was plenty large enough for our group of 6 adults and 3 children. You had great views of the Gulf from all 3 patio decks. The kitchen was well stocked with dishware, cooking utensils, and condiments. Having access to the Galveston Country Club's pool, tennis courts, and golf course was also a plus! We would return again.
