We had a great time. House was exactly as advertised. Thanks.
Our beach house experience was great and we will definitely like to come back!
My expectations were far exceeded. The accommodations were very comfortable for a family getaway. Most of our time was spent on the deck enjoying the weather and view of the gulf. Very convenient for walking the beach and driving in to town. Our host had directions for everything and responded quickly to all of my emails. We hope to stay here again next year.
Return guests, and will keep returning. Gary is extremely helpful, sending a packet with information about the house and the surrounding restaurants and attractions. The house is exactly as described. As before, we had an amazing view and plenty of room. This is a lovely place to stay and recommend it with the highest regard. Can't wait to get back!
This was a fantastic getaway. We were steps from the neighborhood beach with only a few people on it (we were there on Labor Day weekend). It felt very secluded. It is in a good location and close to everything in Galveston. The kids had a great time. The house has everything including an outside shower and additional foot washing station.
Gary was a great host. The instructions are easy to follow. The place had plenty of space for the 4 adults and 6 kids. I can't wait to go back. This was the perfect weekend getaway. I just wish I had stayed longer.
Oh, wonderful house and location! Great part of the beach and only 4 miles from Schlitterbahn (for those interested). Gary is a great communicator so that aspect was a breeze. House is clean, nice and super stocked with all you could need including a garage FULL of beach toys, chairs, boards, etc..
Mattresses are all super good and sheets are provided.
The kids freaked out on how cool the upper floor is. A kid's summer vaca dream nook. My son and I slept out on the upper balcony the first night and it was amazing.
You have a great view of the beach. The subdivision is very small and super nice. Big open lot in front of the cabin so we felt first row. Better than first row, really. Everything worked great. Everything super clean.
Gary is a great communicator (we texted) and we definitely hope to rent again next summer.
