  • Ironman Competition

    5/5

    My son competed in his first Ironman this past weekend and having this house helped all of our stress levels! The location made it easy to navigate the island, it was close enough to the beach that we could take a nice walk, and the beds were so comfortable! The backyard was perfect for our dog and we enjoyed using the firepit to relax before the big day!

    5/5

    The home is located on the east end of the island. It is a walkable, friendly neighborhood, a few minutes walk to the beach, and some good restaurants are within walking distance. ShyKatz was great for breakfasts and salads. Everything we needed, towels and cooking utensils, was provided and easy to find. Having an outdoor shower and a washer/dryer was very helpful. It was great having a dog wash area! I will be buying one of the dog elevated baths. The back porch is great!!! Next time, we will be using the bikes. It may be on the site, and I didn't see it; the stairs to the bedrooms are very steep. They do provide baby gates, and the railing was sturdy. I loved using the gas stove. The neighborhood was quiet when we stayed in late February and early March. I definitely would stay again.

  • Wonderful house near the Seawall East

    5/5

    The house was perfect for us! We stayed 3 nights, my husband, I and small dog. The house had everything you would need! All you need to bring is your clothes and toothbrush. The owner is truly into detail and it shows. The beds were very comfortable, linens nice and fluffy, and the kitchen was stocked with everything you need to prepare a meal. The yard was a highlight for my dog. Totally fenced in with no place for him to get out, nice patio and furniture, outdoor kitchen, heaters on the patio, nice landscaping and grass. There was an outdoor shower and even a dog bath! The shed was full of bikes, trikes and wagons. Being seniors, we did not use all of that, but we sure enjoyed everything else. I would definitely rent this house again. Very well kept house and so cute inside!

  • Great house!

    5/5

    This was a perfect house for our weekend in Galveston for Mardi Gras! We usually stay on the west end but opted to be closer to the festivities. We loved the house itself, very clean and cute and great backyard! It was a super quick walk to the beach and to restaurants/bars. It was a short drive to our friends house where we watched the parades and short drive to the strand! Will stay here again when not staying on the west end!
