Absolutely awesome location!!! Loved it!!!

There were some minor upkeep issues upon arrival, but Vacasa was VERY responsive and the maintenance man on call was awesome and fixed all but a few things which required more time and/or specialized repair. Most importantly, please fix the master bathroom shower and don't take the plumber's "diagnosis" that its the "flow control valve" . . . he fed you a line.

Oh, and being from Virginia, we didn't have the warnings to stay on the short path to the ocean and not to walk through the dunes due to the rattlesnakes (and their babies) there. We promptly corrected the kids. :-)

We will definitely go back! What a great place for our family (coming from different directions) to meet up!!!

Plenty of rooms, kitchen was great, all the plates and pots pants trays we needed! Bath rooms were very nice and modern - straight to the beach from the house with outside showers to rinse off!

The house was really nice and clean. The view was awesome! We enjoyed our time there.
It did have it's down sides. Missing handle to a balcony door, one restroom made a really load noise when flushed and the beds could be better.... overall I would stay here again

We are a family of 7, kids range in age 14-24. Everyone enjoyed themselves. Enough room for everyone and we all love the beach. Sitting out on the deck morning and evenings listening to the waves was very relaxing. Amazing sunrises. Everything we needed was available. Well stocked kitchen for cooking. Very clean. It's a bit out of the way of the main attractions but we were ok with that. Would definitely stay again. There was 1 restaurant within walking distance but we never tried it.

location was awesome, house was nice. Some items were broken or locked, elevator, outdoor lights, dishwasher, etc.

overall a good experience, but could have been better.
Manager response:
We have installed two new light fixtures and replaced all burnt out lights, and we have taken care of the dishwasher door lock as well. Thanks!

The house was dirty. Urine on the master toilet seat, Cobwebs, etc. The house was freezing the heat was off and it took a day to get warm. Worst of all the elevator was broken. There were shades off and bulbs burned out. It was a "You gotta be kidding me?" Put it on a bank card so you can get your money back if needed.
Manager response:
We are very sorry to see this guest appears to have experienced a missed clean. This is a rare situation and does not represent how we do things. We have followed-up with housekeeping, the owner is looking into elevator repairs, and the owner has taken care of some furnishing updates. Thank you!

Our family had a super time vacationing in this beautiful house by the beach!!! It was a short walk (20 steps through nice grass!) and voila you were on the beach. The home was wonderfully laid out.. we had lots of room! We brought the whole family... Great grandma, grandma and grandfather, 2 kids plus their spouses and their two 15 month old children!!! The kitchen was great... the bathrooms were wonderful and we especially loved the decks with pretty furniture!!! It was definitely a slice of heaven for all of us!!!! We also went to Willie G's for lunch and it was fabulous.. The girls shopped the strand and had fun. The guys took the little ones to the out door rides down the sea wall!!! We even ordered in pizza one night from Russia. It was perfect!!! The management company provided excellent service the entire time we were there. They had given me their phone number and I could cal them if I needed help in anyway!!!

Great house directly on the beach, close to all the restaurants and attractions in Galveston. House was clean and had plenty of room for four families with kids.

We had a church group of eleven out to the house for a weekend, and the home was gorgeous, the views excellent, and the maintenance request we placed was promptly responded to Saturday. The cleaning job was impeccable. We had only minor things - the ice machine was not working (not big deal), and the elevator was also not working. Also not a big deal, as we didn't have any true need for handicap access, and this did not affect the excellent time we had. This is something I would suggest they not advertise, though, if its not fully functional for any family with need for wheelchair access to this home. I cannot say enough about the local management coordinator, Armonde! He came promptly to the house on Saturday to look at the elevator and the fridge for us, and when I mentioned I would like a briefly extended stay, he worked above and beyond to grant us a couple extra hours at the home to make up for the minor maintenance issues. What a pleasure to work with, they've definitely earned our return business.

We had family from Oklahoma come visit Houston for Thanksgiving so we rented this beach house. The elevator was a lifesaver for the older people in our family who have trouble with stairs. However, the elevator could use some TLC (it makes weird noises and using a screwdriver to open the door when the door gets stuck can lead to unsafe situations). The house was beautiful, we left the windows open every day and loved the fresh air. The yard was nice but had a lot of painful stickers, so wear your shoes until you get to the beach. We will be returning for sure.

Beautiful house and nicely decorated. It was a busy/crowded Memorial Weekend in Galveston, but we felt so peaceful and relaxed at this location, no crazy partiers here. Great location, close to Walmart, Starbucks ????, Kroger, etc. The house was very roomy with 5 bedrooms (4 with queen beds and 1 with full size bunk). It was my mom's 90th birthday, so we really needed the elevator. The only complaint we had is we thought the elevator was not working, but the maintenance person came very quickly and showed us how to work it and we had no problems the rest of the weekend (instructions there would be nice). Also limited parking, fits 3 vehicles well. Enjoy!! We sure did
