It was clean, inviting and close to everything. Check in and check out were soooo easy. The yard was lovely. We really enjoyed our stay. I think everyone enjoyed the outdoor upstairs tiki balcony the most. The only thing we needed was a couple of kitchen towels, and that really wasn’t a big deal! We will likely book again! Thanks for an incredible stay.

We loved the outdoor area to sit and feel the breeze from the ocean!

The location of this house is amazing. We didn't drive the entire time we were there. The parking is a little tight in the driveway and there are no parking passes for street parking. FYI for folks with kids, the coffee table stone top is not connected to the base.

Awesome location , very nice all the way around. Would rent it again. Walking distance to the parades. And the upstairs cabana was a nice touch. Needed a margarita machine up there and an outlet. :)
Sharon M. Feb 2020
It was clean and comfy. Only issue was getting the wifi working but that was resolved.
Bob B. Jan 2020
The house is great! Everything you need for your stay. Location is fabulous. Close to beach, restaurants and attractions. Most within walking distance. We will definitely be back.Vacasa is also great to deal with..
Donna O. Jan 2020
We loved the place. House is beautiful and charming. Minor repairs need to be made but it's part of the charm of an old house. It had all we needed for a great 4 day stay. We really loved it and would not mind buying the house and just staying there!

Clean and comfortable, close to everything.
paul l. Dec 2019
Location, quiet neighborhood, and outside "tiki" deck was an added area of enjoyment.
Jared J. Nov 2019

TIMOTHY F. Oct 2019
Perfect for us.
JAMES M. Sep 2019
We had a wonderful time. The house was wonderfully clean and comfortable and only a block from the Gulf. When we arrived, we discovered a leak around the toilet. We called it in and it was fixed that day. Terrific service. We loved it.
Andrew T. Sep 2019
This is the second time in two years we have booked this holiday home , nothing is to much to ask for from the management company .And its only two minutes walk to the beach , we will definitely book this property again from the Thompson's and the Rodriguiez family's

A fun Galveston getaway
Matt T. Jul 2019
The AC seemed to work hard to try to keep cool.
Deanna M. Jul 2019
Cute house in a good location. Only 2 blocks from the beach and walking distance to some restaurants. The house was very clean, spacious and had many amenities of home. The communication was great before we arrived as well. Only 2 items that kept me from giving this home 5 stars: 1) the overgrown oleander bushes did not allow for parking along the curb. The driveway was somewhat narrow for a truck but we had to make do since the bushes were too overgrown 2) the master bedroom bed was very squeaky! If you’re a light sleeper, don’t count on a good nights rest.
Other than those 2 items, this property was a great place for our Galveston getaway
Kirby C. Jul 2019
We rented the house for a weekend stay, accommodations were great, house well furnished and a very short walk to the Beach.
Minor comment, some of the light fixtures could use updating, some were very dim light levels., especially in the bathrooms.

Otherwise we enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again.
Kimberly W. Mar 2019
This house was perfect for a quick spring break getaway for my family of 5. It’s close enough to walk to the beach, Pleasure Pier and restaurants. The house was quaint, clean and the beds are comfy!!! Reservations, payment and rental instructions were easy and everything was perfect when we arrived. The next time we come to Galveston, we’re looking forward to staying here again!!
William S. Mar 2019
This how is well located for short walks to restaurants, bars and the beach.
Sally S. Jan 2019
Since there isn't a place for comments to the management I'll make them here. It was a great place to stay and the beach was literally 1 block away. The house lacked a couple of items that would have made our stay better. For instance, a working can opener. The dollar store one in the drawer was worthless. It also lacked a broom and dust pan which would be a real plus for sand in the summer. Or in our case spilled oatmeal. Management people were great in reuniting us with a forgotten jacket.
Manager response:
We appreciate these suggestions and hope to see our guest again!

The location was ideal, walking distance to the sea wall and entertainment.
James P. Aug 2018
This place was great. It didn’t look like much on the outside, but once you got inside very cozy. Inside you will find hardwood floors and comfortable beds. Flat screen TV’s are in every bedroom. The master is isolated with its own bathroom. The raised deck is great, though it doesn’t give the best view of the gulf. This place was about a block 1/2 away from the beach which was never crowded. It’s also within walking distance of the pleasure pier, many restaurants, and bars.
Karena P. Aug 2018
There was so much good to say about this house! it was close to everyting (only a block and a half from beach, reasturants and bars) but was nice and quiet at night.

It was very clean and had most of the amentieis I would expect to get with a vacation rental.

Only suggestions would be for host to add hangers in teh closet, beach towels, kitchen serving ware (large bowl, platter etc) and a blender would have been nice too.

I would def return wiht the family to enjoy another stay here =)
Rachel B. Jul 2018
The house was perfect; clean, stocked with everything we needed in kitchen/bath/laundry, spacious, quiet, good floor plan with master separate....and we loved the outdoor space! The raised pavilion caught a nice breeze and was a relaxing place to sit. Short walk to the beach. We even walked to Pleasure Pier, which is a bit farther, but close enough even our 6 & 8 year olds did not complain. Vacasa staff was great to deal with and proactive providing us with all needed information in advance, and we were provided with a local contact on our day of arrival in case we needed anything. Would definitely stay again!
Sandra S. Jul 2018
This house was in a great location. We loved the palapa!
Kelly S. Jul 2018
Very close to the beach and restaurants! Nice house. When we arrived sheets weren’t on the bed, we called and they were immediately brought out! Great service and I would definitely book this house again.
Travis W. Jun 2018
The house is charming and perfectly located. Had everything we needed for our week long visit. The deck is a total bonus, as well as the parking and laundry amenities. We will definitely book here again!

We arrived on time to start our break in this house , We all would like to say . a fantastic home yards from a beautiful beach . Amazing Tiki room on stilts so we could just chill and enjoy the beautiful views , and wildlife, , we can only say it was a 5 star accommodation but we give it a 6 star rating , if we ever get a chance to come to Galveston again . Which is quite probable we would definitely try and book this little bit of paradise again
Regards from the Thompson family

We had a blast. The neighborhood was quiet and totally loved the deck. Walking distance to everything! And the house was exactly to a tee to the pictures. Beds were comfortable and the color of the rooms were so soothing...relaxing! Thank you so much for making our girlfriend trip one to remember.
Merv J. Apr 2018
This house was great.
Very good location and would definitely stay here again!
Christina L. Apr 2018
Within walking distance to Pleasure Pier and many restaurants. Plenty of room for this family of six to spread out inside the house. Kitchen and laundry a definite plus. Would stay there again!
Dan G. Apr 2018
This house was beautiful and so well located ! The short stroll to the sea, pier and sights and glory of Galveston . The kitchen and the friendliness of people made us want to come back again xx what a place !
Dennis D. Mar 2018
We spent the last 2 weeks of February here, 40 degrees warmer than Wisconsin. The home is very nice, clean and roomy. Being able to have our dog with was important and she loved playing and running inside and out. The covered deck is awesome for coffee in the morning and drinks later in the day. Close enough to walk to the beach and drinks at the Poop Deck. Easy to get any place in Galveston and the Bolivar Peninsula.
Alice G. Feb 2018
This home was in a great location. Very close to the beach and Pleasure Pier. We took Uber to other sites that were a little further away. The King bed was very comfortable. Love that this was a very roomy house for the two of us. Would have appreciated basic Pantry Staples and more than two kitchen towels available.
Alfredo P. Jan 2018
This was a great house for the price! Close to anything and everything you need! Amazing rooms with great beds and amazing patio!
Julie G. Jan 2018
Great place to stay. The property has plenty of room for family and friends to just relax in the home or out on the deck especially after a long day at the beach or site seeing.
Stacy H. Dec 2017
Great location! We would definitely stay here again.
Sandra W. Nov 2017
Perfect area to walk to beach, stores , pier and restaurants
