  • Great place for a beach getaway!


    We highly enjoyed our stay. Very close to the beach, one of which is a public beach within walking distance. Very comfortable stay for four if needed but it was just my sister and I. Clean property plenty of stuff to cook with if your into cooking on your stay. And they even have a beach wagon to tote the beach chairs and umbrella that is also included. Loved our little beach getaway, we drove all the way from Nebraska which was a 14 hour drive but well worth the drive.

  • Clean and comfortable.


    Overall, we enjoyed our stay. It is a nice clean little place. Everything was great except it was hot inside at first. We used the beach towels provided to cover some windows so it would cool down and that worked nicely. Some better window coverings would help. Communication with the manager was very abrupt and kind of rude. When I asked if we could possibly check in a little early (the check in time is late) all I got from the text was an abrupt “no”. Then another text stating “4:00”. That’s fine but no need to be rude. It was stated somewhere in our transactions that we could request if an early check in time was available so a kinder reply would have been nice. I would still give the house a 9 out of 10 though. We enjoyed our time in Galveston very much.

  • Perfect spot for our getaway


    We enjoyed our stay here! It’s a small house but the perfect size for me and my husband. The shower was his favorite part. Very close to the sea wall and the strand. We would definitely stay again.
