This is a home it’s priced right the inside has everything that you would need and it is a nicely appointed home that’s right on the canal with a into the bay or into the gulf. Restaurants and shopping or just down the road a little peace and beach access is right directly across the street so super convenient We would definitely rent this nice home again

The house is cute and we fished off the dock. Didn't have to go anywhere, just relaxed.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review! We are glad to hear you enjoyed the home. We hope to host you again soon!

There is a lot of room inside and out at this house. The dock area for fishing is amazing, minus the mosquitoes. Bring bug spray! We are in the process of planning another trip at a different time of the year.

The YellowCrab was awesome.. my family & myself enjoyed staying here.. We had everything we needed .. very peaceful atmosphere.. If I had to say what was something that needed improving would be the difficulty of contacting personnel for assistance.. I emailed, didn’t get responses until next day & day I was checking out.. Stayed on hold to speak to someone for 45minutes to be told they would have to get back to me via text, received a text 10hrs later & only one part of the questions I asked were answered , ask about the other issues & didn’t get a response. My questions were issues that needed immediate response.. As I stated the property & apartment itself was awesome & I would definitely consider staying again ..
Manager response:
Thank you so much for choosing the YellowCrab for your vacation getaway Amy! Wonderful to know that you and your family found a peaceful atmosphere and really enjoyed this canal-front home. We are very sorry to hear of any delay in response or service as you truly have 24-hour customer assistance, to ensure we are providing the best experience that we can. We were experiencing large call and email volumes as a result of wildfires and hurricanes, and do apologize for any inconvenience as a result. Thank you again for the feedback, and we hope to get a future opportunity to provide a better guest experience!

The house was easy to find and in a fabulous location. It sits right on a canal and the lots were large so the homes were not on top of each other. Quiet area of 3 canals on the West End of Galveston. It was wonderful to easily paddle our kayaks out into the bay, The walk to the beach was no big deal and that beach access was not crowded. The kitchen was well stocked with great cookware, utensils, and tableware. Alex’s Fishmarket nearby was our supply for fresh fish. It’s an older home, particularly the bathrooms but absolutely doable. Nice deck and dock available for the breezes and relaxing.

The house has an upper and lower living space. The upper level was nice and had plenty of cooking utensils. The shower however had the previous renters used soap left there. Bring trash bags as you get 2. The WIFI was good and TV's were nice. The Fishing off the dock was great, the teenagers hardly left it only to sleep a little and to eat. The issue with the home is the bottom floor, the sink was full of water when we got there and the toilet didn't want to work properly and the bathroom floor had water standing in it most of the time. The boys ended up having to use the facilities and shower upstairs. This wouldn't have been awful if the owners would have made any kind of an effort to do something, when I called Vacasa (very pleasant people to work with) they said the owners have a note in the listing , don't over use the dishwasher or washer. The bottom has a draining problem. I used the dishwasher once a day and only used the washer once. The reviews were what helped me decide on this home and then I noticed that 2 others posted during our stay that might have changed my mind. If they will get the bottom room, accessible only from the bottom floor, not connected with the upper house at all, fixed I would recommend the house, but until then I am giving it only 3 stars and that's being nice..
Manager response:
We appreciate your feedback, Brenda, and we will be discussing the plumbing issues with the homeowner. Thank you for staying with us!

I really wanted to leave a 5 star review for this place. The upstairs is great - kitchen is well stocked, comfortable furnishings, and very clean upon our arrival. Nicely decorated. Overall had a great time. However, the downstairs bunk room has toilet issues, which overflowed several times during our stay. I understand that lots of rain along with a septic system don’t mix well. But as a rental, it should be able to withstand the elements.
Manager response:
Hi, Lisa! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and apologize for the septic issues you encountered. The owner has had the tank pumped and is working on a solution for when it rains. Thank you!

The home was beautiful, clean and perfect for our little get away. We loved fishing from the dock and just enjoying some family time.
Warren T. Jul 2020
We thought the beaches being closed were going to ruin our vacation, but the house, the neighborhood, and the doc made up for it. We caught so many fish!!! Even a stingray WOW! Super impressed with the whole weekend
Terry L. Jul 2020
Great location, enjoyed kayaking and swimming across the road at beach. Great dock space to fish at night and to have meals. Just some septic issues with downstairs bathroom. In order to use and dock your own boat, check ahead since you need a key to use boat ramp in private neighborhood. Neighbors were very helpful and friendly!!! Great community!!

Was a great house ! Very Comfortable

Very quiet canal home
Karen W. May 2020
Loved this place. Great beach house. Close to beaches and fishing. A tip, if you go to the right as you leave out to the 2nd beach access entry you can park your car on the beach At your own spot.

Although a little dated this place is laid out great. Spacious open kitchen/Dining/living areas. House was clean and plenty of dishes and utensils. Good sized bedrooms with comfortable mattresses. Lower level is set up like an apartment and is basically a separate entity. Lot is big for typical canal housing. No neighbors encroaching on either side. Easy access to the bay and fishing. Huge deck areas and picnic table on dock. Community is secluded compared to other subdivisions in the area. We loved this place we stayed 3 weeks and would definitely choose it again. Kat from Vacasa is an area resident and answered our questions, returned calls quickly and solved an occupancy problem for us.

Nice house and peaceful area
Paul T. Oct 2019
Everything was as advertised and more. Convenient to the fishing spots we like and even had a cleaning table to make that job as easy as it gets. Comfortable and clean. Thanks from the Fishing Team of the Old 288 Surf Club.
