About Yolanda

We have lived along the Texas Gulf Coast for over 25 years. We have seen Galveston grow into an exciting and beautiful resort city with a small home town culture! We enjoy walking along the beach especially early mornings and late evenings - watching the sun rise and the moon's radiant glow on the waves.

Yolanda purchased this house in 2008

Why Yolanda chose Galveston

We found the location great being that it is just a few steps from the beach!! The area is quiet and has a small town atmosphere. The grocery story next door is great for just purchasing ice cream or picking up steaks!

What makes this house unique

Very private and close to the beach! A great, clean beach!

Great amenities for a family coastal getaway!

We came for the weekend with another family. A total of 4 adults and 4 children (all under 7). The property is very accommodating to children. Food store very close and convenient. Beach access very convenient. Property is clean, quaint, and appropriate for all ages.

We enjoyed the various options for entertaining. (2 deck patios, kitchen/living room, multiple bedrooms).

Liked everything but all those stairs

Owner's Response: Sorry about the stairs, that's a downside for only being a 2 minute walk to the beach. You have to admit that hearing the ocean from the balcony makes the stairs worthwhile!

Not impressed at all! Not enough towels and AC issues

  • 3 of 5

The AC was out on the top floor from Thur afternoon until Fri night making the kitchen living room area unusable.

  • Submitted: Jun 18, 2017
  • Stayed: June 2017
  • Source: VRBO, from HomeAway
Owner's Response: Hi Bill, You text me on Friday that the ac was not working and I immediately contacted my technician who went out within an hour the very same day. When he arrived, he found the ac frozen and he had to allow it to thaw out. Along with the directions and key code I always send guest instructions to not lower the ac below 70. Apparently your party did not adhere to the instructions and lowered the thermostat very low. In my guest instructions, I state that due to the summer heat, it is very difficult to maintain a spacious home in the low 60's 24 hours a day. My technician found the ac unit frozen. You also explained to me that there was ice crystals on the outside pipes of the unit. My technician had you turn off the ac to unfreeze it and stated he would return. You later texted me that it was getting very hot upstairs and asked when the technician would return. The technician returned later that day and I also met him at the home. The technician informed me that the pipes were still frozen in the home. He found some Freon leaks and he patched the unit and was going to return in a few hours on the same day (Friday) to make sure the unit was working correctly. I went to the home the day after you checked out and the ac was working. Therefore, if the unit was not cooling well on Thursday, I was not aware of the problem until Friday. Getting a technican to come out on short notice is almost unheard of during the summer months and I guess I'm disappointed that you chose to give me and my home a bad review when I tried to resolve the problem quickly and efficiently the same day. I believe if the unit had not been frozen by your party the fix would have occurred quickly with very little discomfort for you and your party.
