About Owner/Manager

Where does someone go for vacation from San Diego? ---- Galveston. It's a cool place. Space, lots of things to do or just relax and enjoy the Gulf.

Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2005

Why Owner/Manager chose Sands Of Kahala Beach

Did you ever try to swim in the Pacific Ocean in the summer? It's cold. You won't need your wet suit to swim in Galveston waters. Warm, yet refreshing.

Perfect location!

Beautiful house steps away from the beach. Walked into the house and was so very happy that it is exactly as pictured and described. Beds are so comfortable, TVs in each room, nice game room. Floor plan is perfect and the outside deck is amazing.

The owners are so nice and helpful and answered any questions that we had.

We plan to make this our go to rental in Galveston for all our trips!

It’s just perfect!!!!

The house is a little old needs update over all. Such as kitchen faucet isn't hold stay stool still, master bathroom water tank water keep running, laundry room lights doesn't turn on right the way, AC, refrigerator didn't work right right the way. It worked later. Not a major things but a lots of small things. Thanks.

Sands of Kahala

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week in Galveston. The house suited us and we appreciate the fact that the owner rented it to us Monday to Monday. That was the only way it would work for us.

It was nice that we could go downstairs and walk right to the beach.

It could use a bit of paint work but other than that it worked well for us.

Family Reunion a Success!

  • 5 of 5

This house was a perfect place for a family reunion! Its beachfront location was a real advantage as were the decks on both floors. The decks allowed for another space for both small or large groups of family to gather. The house was well maintained, and the kitchen was equipped to handle the cooking needs of all. When a phone call was placed to the owner about insufficient towels, the cleaning service arrived within the half hour to supply more than enough towels. Another phone call about a plumbing problem had the plumber there within the hour to completely fix the problem.

The rooms with the king size beds and private baths were very luxurious. However, the bedrooms without the private baths were a llittle cramped as our group had more adults than children, so some adults stayed in the smaller bedrooms meant for children. The only suggestion I could give to improve our stay would be to have soap and a roll of toilet paper available in each bathroom upon a guest's arrival. When we arrived, there was none of either in several of the bathrooms.

That being said, those minor details did not deter from our enjoyment of the house and the beach. I would certainly recommend it to other large family groups!

Lovely beachfront home. Every bedroom has a private deck on the ocean. Just lovely!

  • 5 of 5

The beach is lightly used because the subdivision is only one row. This was really delightful because there was never a crowd on the beach in front of the home. The layout of the house was especially nice with lots of privacy and bathrooms. Great for sharing with family and friends. Very clean and a responsive owner.
