This rental was indeed near the beach and walking distance to the seawall. It was as pictured and a great house. The neighborhood is indeed diverse but felt safe.
There were two things that needed to be fixed: the sliding door to the back deck was impossible, unless you were a hulking man! We would have hung out there but couldn't get the door open.
The bunk beds squeaked whenever you moved. These can easily be fixed by tightening up the bolts.
My other minor concern was there were no hot-pads and kitchen towels for the kitchen. With no dishwasher we needed towels to dry the dishes as we cooked breakfast each morning.
Also, there were no washcloths in the bathrooms??
We also had to go purchase batteries for the TV and Roku as they died. Roku is known to eat up batteries, should be left face down, when not using. No problem, except I emailed the owner if there were spare batteries and never got a response???
The outside showers were awesome and kept a lot of sand out of the house!! The front deck was fun and pretty.
We had a good time, just a few hiccups in the weekend.
We have a huge family and we were able to comfortably sleep 8 adults. The place is well kept and I love the outdoor shower which helps with keeping sand from the beach out of the house.
The owners are friendly and all the amenities of home are right there in the house.
This was our families second visit and we definitely we be back next year as well.
My husband, four children (three teenagers), and two in-laws stayed here for two nights. It was the perfect place for us to use as our base as we explored Galveston.
This place was great! Plenty of room and close to what we wanted to do in Galveston. The owner was great to work with, even allowing us to check in early. My only complaint was that it did not have a coffee pot, instead it had a coffee press and I'm just not used to those. Otherwise, great place!
The home was exactly as shown in the photos. The location was perfect. The seawall was close enough for us to walk. The home was a 20 minute walk away from the historical shopping district. We all had an amazing time. The house was not hard to spot when you get into the right area. I would stay here again and, I would recommend it to a friend. The house felt like home and, my family didn't want to leave.
