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!

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.

Wonderful beach house.

  • 5 of 5

My family of 13 stayed at the house for a week. Sitting on the porch and playing one the beach was our personal favorites. We had a wonderful time. Comfortable beds. It was great to have the blow dryers and iron. We we would all rent this house again if we return back to Galveston for another family vacation. Les is very responsive and pleasant to work with.

Good for a large family

  • 4 of 5

Our main requirement for coming to Galveston is close to the city and three to four master bedrooms (big bed, private bath). My children are all married with children so houses with more bunkrooms do not work for us. This house had three masters and a bedroom and a bunkroom. It had a large dining table that fit us all. The house is nice and well-maintained and we love the Sands of Kahala development and usually stay there. The owner was available by phone and very accommodating when we had a minor problem. My other experience with VRBO was horrendous and I had vowed never to use them again but this experience has changed my mind.
