Take the crew out to Galveston and spend your island getaway at the ‘Casa di Mare’ vacation rental! Walk right up to the water and start the boat for a day of fishing and beach activities on Texas’ West Bay, or stay close to this 4-bedroom, 2.5-bath house and lounge on the pier. Take a walk through nearby historic Galveston to see Victorian architecture like Moody Mansion, then return home and fire up the charcoal grill for a home-cooked dinner of fresh seafood while the sunsets over the water!

This is the first time I made the reservation myself and invited my friends here. The whole process has been very easy, and with the timely communications, I love that!
The place is quite, the house has all the kitchen tools, even the small picking and cracking tools for eating crab. The two decks facing the water are great for the morning. The sunset views are also great.
Overall, my friends all liked this place and enjoyed the stay. We are talking about coming back for another get together next year.
Favorite things: pier, boat cover, plenty of fish to catch (son caught 13 non keepers and cousin caught 3 keepers, flounder, trout, drum), we were able to cast net across the street for bait but still purchased plenty of bait from local sources. Quiet, neighbor/maintenance person was super nice. Would love to rent again one day!
From The Owner: "Thank you so much for your kind review! We love when our guests have a wonderful time at our home!"
Home is confortable and has everything you need. Very clean and organized. Waking up each morning to the great view of the bay was great. The sunset is breathtaking. Will definitely stay here again. Our family had a great time!

We had a wonderful time at "Casa Di Mare". It was the perfect fit for our family of 15. Everyone enjoyed hanging around the kitchen visiting and eating! There was a large table that had plenty of bench seating. There were 8 Queen size beds and 2 1/2 baths which was great! The top deck had a nice breeze in the morning with table and Chairs and swing, we enjoyed watching the boaters go by. There was also 2 more swings on the deck below that was also enjoyed! The favorite part of the house was the night fishing off the lighted pier, we caught trout and red fish. We look forward to renting Casa Di Mare again as it was an overall great experience and fun time for all.
From the owner:

We love to fish, however the weather didn't permit. Plan to rent again soon.
