Good location, easy walk to the beach and restaurants. Loved sitting on the front porch and listening to the waves.. House had a wonderful kitchen; fully stocked with pots and pans. Appreciated the bathroom touches of shampoo, etc.

This place has everything. My preference was to sit on the front porch and read in the morning, spend the day at the beach and top it off with a film in the evening. No matter what you want to do this place has it. Grill, swing, patio with pergola, deep baththubs and just 1 block off the beach. Castaway Cottage reminds me of the description from The Hobbit, 'a perfect house, whether you like food or sleep, or story-telling or singing, or just sitting and thinking best, or a pleasant mixture of them all'.
I cannot recommend it enough.

Atmosphere and how the house was set up worked great! I would highly recommend for a group like mine. 2 adults and 5 kids fit nicely. Close to shops and restaurants.

It's a darling beach house and was perfect for a girls' getaway! So close to the beach and restaurants; well-stocked kitchen; funky decor; plenty of towels; very comfortable home. We'll definitely be back!

Great location, pretty good little house for the money. It’s really nice that it has two bathrooms and washer and dryer inside the house. All in all a pretty good stay.
Drawbacks (and understand this can happen anywhere). The dishwasher was broken with water pooled in the bottom and a foul smell. I did send a courtesy email and let them know, though I haven’t heard back yet. Also I wish there had been a list of protocol for shutting down the rental when we left. I did pile the towels and carry out all the garbage, but also hoping there wasn’t something I missed..
Last, and through no fault of vacasa or anyone else, bring insect repellant! You will thank me. Galveston has some serious mosquitoes this year.

Everything was clean and neat. The house is located very close (walking/biking) to beach. Everything we needed was very easy to come by or find in this nice cozy home. The backyard is really nice, we didn't get to utilize as we planned due to weather. I would definitely book again.
Adriana A. May 2020
The house is two blocks away from the ocean, it’s cozy, and is very roomy. There was a mosquito issue inside the house and also a musky smell but other than that it’s very manageable.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Adriana! We are sorry that you were having issues with mosquitos during your stay. We are letting our local staff know about this so they can address the issue. We hope to host you again soon!
Lawrence W. May 2020
Loved the house, could use a good deep clean, the dishwasher isn't the greatest, so wash the dishes before you use them, the xbox wouldn't come on, and the sink drained slow. The garbage disposal worked when it wanted to. Overall, it was a great place to stay with the kids and
enjoy some relaxing vacation time.
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your feedback with us, Lawrence. We are thrilled that you loved the home and you were able to relax during your stay. We sincerely apologize for any issues you experienced during your stay and for any areas missed by our housekeeping team. We will address these concerns with our local team. We hope to have another opportunity to impress you in the future!

The house was comfortable and clean. Had the kitchen set up with everything needed.
Only thing lacking was bedding for the sofa bed. We would definitely go back.

Great house that’s well appointed. Just a block from the Seawall and tons of restaurants it perfect for a weekend of fun. The front and backyard are great my little dog had a great time since both yards are fenced in.
Ralf B. Aug 2019
Loved the size of the house. Plenty of room to spread out and relax. Conveniently located close to the beach. Having a washer and dryer as well as full size refrigerator/freezer was excellent. Would stay there again.
