Comfortable, clean house close to the ocean

  • 3 of 5

The house is very clean, well-appointed and comfortable. The wrap-around deck provides good views of the ocean which is only a couple hundred feet away. Unfortunately, the bridge over the sand dune shown in the photo is closed with a sign stating that several people died there due to undertow....so not really a swimming area. You can walk to the other end of the neighborhood where the state park beach is accessible, but still swimming is not allowed here either. The house has some structural issues (as I imagine is common with older beach houses) leading to uneven floors, cabinets that swing when you close the doors, and doors that don't fit the frames well. One of the beds was broken on arrival, but the owner fixed it the next day which was much appreciated.

Great value for a diamond in the rough

  • 3 of 5

Great location for relaxing and overlooking the ocean from the deck. However, for any swimming, you have to drive as the walkover there is closed. House itself was clean and ready. Most lights worked but there is a loose piece of metal at the top of the chimney that can be quite loud at night if it is windy. Oh, and if you're planning on driving to Galveston Island for swimming, there is a $2 toll each way each time you go across that San Luis Pass Bridge.

Owner's Response: John, Thank you for your review!! I did find out about the chimney cap. I had the roof replaced last month on that house due to hail damage. I had no idea the chimney cap was loose, however I called the roofer to come back out and he arrived in 3 hours and has fixed the cap. Please call me with any concerns you may have for I can most everything fixed within the same day. High Tides can come in and damage the walk overs to the beach. It is something that just happens and we can't control the high tides but the good news is that the HOA is usually on top of getting the walkover repaired in a timely manner. There is also a second walkover in the neighborhood which is 3 blocks to the right of the home. That gives you access to a very large beach that will stretch for miles, all the way to the city of Surfside. Please remember to call me if you ever have any concerns or questions about the home or the area. There is no need to go to Galveston over the bridge to swim in the gulf! Please look us up again. Michelle

Peak Auntiedom

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I planned a weekend family vacation for my 3 and 4 year old nephews and 16 month old niece. We wanted them to see the ocean for the first time and they absolutely loved it.

The beach access directly across from the property was closed due to 5 recent drownings. It was pretty scary to see that sign. I was disappointed at first, thinking we wouldn't be able to find any beach close by, but I called the homeowner and she directed me to the proper access point. (It's an island, after all, there's going to be water close by.) It was about two blocks away, which would not have been an issue at all if it weren't for the horrendous mosquitoes! We got chewed up the first night just walking to the beach. We drove the two blocks the remainder of our stay, which wasn't a big deal and allowed us to carry even MORE unnecessary toys and beach gear.

The beach was clean and not overly crowded at all. The fishing seems good, too, if you're into that.

The house was well-stocked and clean. Everything was in proper working order to my knowledge. The views of the water from the house were lovely. Especially on a near full moon night and the morning sunrise, too. It was spacious enough for three small children and four adults to live comfortably for a few days.

Pretty much the only drawback to the location and trip were the mosquitoes, which is hardly something the homeowner can control. It made it difficult to use the giant, lovely deck at certain times, but once we were on the beach the skeeters weren't an issue. Unless it was dusk, then RUN FOR YOUR LIVES.

In conclusion, mosquitoes are the worst creatures on earth and should all die a fiery death. But the beach house and the homeowner were very accommodating. Plus, my nephews think I'm an amazing Auntie, and isn't that the whole point?

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the review!! I am glad you had a great time at the beach. Mosquitoes are brutal!! If there has been no rain, mosquitoes are not an issue. Please remember to bring mosquito spray with in case. LOL Yes, the beach is in front of the home. Yes, there is a sign up to warn people of the drownings that happened is 2013. 5 fisherman I believe were fishing under the bridge with waders on and they got caught in a rip current and were swept under. My family and I were there 2 years ago when it happened. It was a very tragic situation for sure. Our hearts go out to the families of all involved. Even though the house is not located by the bridge all people need to take caution when swimming in the Gulf or any large body of water. There can be dangerous riptides and currents and one might not even know they are present. Always use caution when swimming in the Gulf. 3 blocks to the right is another access with a bridge walkover. It too has parking. You can enjoy 2 different beach accesses in Treasure Island. Please look us up again.

labor day

  • 3 of 5

We had a wonderful time on vacation, but we do when ever we are together. A couple of things about the stay: the house was cute and had everything that we needed. It was a little worn in places, such as the floor was stained and rippled in places. The deck was great and we had a wonderful view. I will say that looks are deceiving, and the beach is not directly across from the house. You had to go about 3 blocks to access the beach. There is a sign directly across from the house staying not to swim there as 5 people had died since 2013. That was a bit scary. And the mosquitos were so bad, vicious, couldn't allow the children to go downstairs with out being drenched in bug spray. But we made the best if the situation, and the owner did respond quickly with answers to my questions. Overall a good experience, but I think next time We will find somewhere closer to the beach.

Great weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of nine there for a weekend away. We had a great time, the house was a perfect size and we all slept comfortably. It was very clean and well stocked with everything we needed. Michelle was very friendly and easy to get ahold of when I had questions. All in all it was the great relaxing weekend away that we all needed.
