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 Galveston

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.

What makes this house unique

What better way to enjoy your walk --- just walk right out on the beach!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Perfect is the only word needed. The house was amazing. There were 10 of us and we had plenty of room and loved being able to sit around the table for meals. Loved sitting on the deck for our morning coffee and pelican watching. Would recommend this property to anyone wanting a beach vacation.

Beautiful home and location

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Loved the closeness to the beach, the balconies to take in the magnificent views and the overall atmosphere. Well equipped home, and close to stores to get any items forgotten. Great home for large families like ours. A few very minor issues but nothing major. Wish there were no sticker burs in the yard...impossible to walk to and from the beach barefoot but easily solved by cheap flip flops to wear to the beach path. Overall...A+ rating.

Lovely home, nicely equipped and maintained, right on west beach, but close to seawall

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time here. The owner was super responsive through out the booking process. The location of the house is ideal for us - right on the beach, and close enough to the seawall and restaurants and groceries stories for easy access... yet far enough away (a couple of miles) to be quiet and peaceful. Other than maintenance people cleaning the beach or emptying trash we didn't have cars on the beach (yeah!). Sea shelling was pretty good - I got quite a few undamaged specimens. Beach is flat enough for some good exercise too if you want to walk or jog.

The furnishings in this house are nice - especially the leather L-shaped sofa. The separate recliner matches and is comfy too. The main TV screen was big and has a really nice picture with lots of channel choices and the Wifi speed was plenty for us. There are TVs in the bedrooms too. Excellent choice of pots, pans, knives, etc. in the remodeled kitchen. Beautiful granite and new appliances.

Lots of things to recommend this home.

DO pay attention to the letter the owner sends you about what to bring. You need to bring, or go out and buy, your bars of soap, shampoo and paper products. There was enough toilet paper for the first day or two but not enough for our whole stay. You will want to buy paper towels and tissues as well.

A big unexpected plus was the lovely selection of "one teaspoon at a time" packets of spices and salt and pepper packets in the cabinet. And the collection of condiment packets in the pantry. There were also some K-cup coffee choices in the cabinet above the K-cup Coffee machine. We brought our own filters and coffee and used the traditional machine more...but one guest liked the K-cups.

We would definitely stay here again!

Kellogg Reunion Friends

  • 5 of 5

This was a great beach house on a great running, walking and biking beach! Amazing sun rises and sunsets the views were so great. The house had all the amenities required to stay in a home for multiple couples or families. We especially enjoyed the 2nd story balcony for coffee and cocktails. Kitchen area was well stocked for gourmet style grilling and dinners. Living area was great for large group to enjoy game night with old friends as well. Thanks!

Our new favourite place to wake up!

  • 5 of 5

We spent ages searching for a rental property in Galveston- there are so many to choose from - but we are SO glad we took our time and found this place. It was simply perfect!

It sounded too good to be true on line so we were prepared for an element of disappointment, however absolutely everything was just as described- if not better! The house is huge and beautifully furnished. Decor is great and the property is v well maintained. Kitchen is v modern and v well equipped with separate utility. There are even lovely little extra touches like condiments and spices in the larder! Beds are v comfy and a plenty, as are the bathrooms. The pool table on the gallery is a fantastic amenity and the family spent a lot of time up there together having fun. For families there is also a trunk underneath the house filled with beach toys - buckets, spades, balls...even a kite which my two had so much fun with. The owner really has thought of everything.

The best thing about this place though- and the main reason we booked it- is the location . It really is right on the beach. And the view from the deck? Oh my! It is simply stunning. We loved sitting out there listening to the sounds of the waves. I need to comment on the actual beach too- this house is in such a quiet spot with only a few well spaced properties and no vehicles allowed on the beach which really is important. (Just a bit further along , it gets quite crowded with houses and condos and also cars allowed so we really were thrilled with our peaceful spot).

Oh another important factor is that the owner is easily contactable. We had cause to phone Les with a simple question and he was v helpful and extremely friendly.

I fear I've rambled a bit here but I just can't over emphasise how thrilled we were with our stay and how much we loved the property. We are from the Uk and this was supposed to be a little one off post - cruise extra for us, but we are already planning to try and return next year with no cruise, just this place as our destination! Hopefully we can stay for longer next time.....

Great Vacation Destination!

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable house for multiple families. Located right on the beach for easy access and nicely furnished. Very spacious with a large deck. The pool table is also a great feature. 5-10 minutes from town for supplies and Galveston fun. Would definitely come back.
