While the house was not close to the beach, it was easy to get to the to the beach, restaurants, and the attractions we were interested in (Moody Gardens, Fisherman's Wharf, etc)

We made it to Galveston on Friday afternoon of July 4th weekend only to discover our original property wasn’t going to be available - we were able to stay here, and it met all our needs. We felt lucky to be there!

Your home is spotless. Grandkids loved it. Neighbors are friendly and gracious. Nice private patio in back. Laundry faculty on the property. Well stocked kitchen and other rooms.

Don't expect this place to be walking distance to water, but convenient to everything by bicycle or car.

Roomy and modern decor!

From the color scheme to the location and the features just like shown when made the reservation….amazing!!! Will definitely book this property again while in Galveston!!!

Our family of 4 loved staying here. The bunk beds were very fun for our kids. The backyard area was well fenced and just enough space for our little dog. The drive to the beach was quick. Everything was well cleaned.

okay so I was hesitant because of the 'area' but no problems
(except trashcan dancing, lol, they moved around at times) pretty quiet for the type of neighborhood, no problems AT ALL. very nice people, nice lighting, great stay. cold, as ice air, nice comfy couches and beds clean dishes and kitchen.. nice clean floors and bedding SUPER NEW AND NICE feeling towels , THANKS !!! so clean .

only (kinda) downsides, were water pressure which was reported , and the bathroom is kinda small they should have use more kitchen or living space during refurb but. with nice water pressure would have been great , and yard in rear should ne opened and forget parking at rear. BUT... all in all I had a most fantastic stay FELT SAFE, easy in and out. nice on street parking better than rear , nice bbq grill, nice back patio with hose , all. supplies etc. very happy !

This rental is in a run-down neighborhood. One house down on either side are abandoned buildings. Because it is a blighted street, the house should be perfect, but it is NOT. Half the kitchen lights quit working for no reason, the towel racks had been pulled off the walls and not fixed; toilet paper holder, too! The bathroom sink is a joke. Its the size of a postage stamp with no counter space. Since that is the only bathroom...not great for a family, for sure! The mirror is leaning against the bathroom windows? The front gate is broken and won't latch without fiddling with it. The back yard is dirt, holes, dead plants and weeds and it is tiny. Cigarette butts are left all over the ground. The washer dryer is outdoors in a separate room with no covered walkway to get to it. There is no dishwasher and also no dish drainer. The kitchen table and the chairs are very small. Room for a cramped 4. There are bar stools for overflow guests. Outdoor dining is not set up well and no umbrella for the table. The refrigerator door opens in the wrong direction and there is no garbage disposal. On the plus side, the kitchen is huge, the bunk bed room is good sized. The master bedroom is okay, but not chests of drawers anywhere. One tv that swivels between kitchen and living room, if thats important to anyone. The house is cute, but for that neighborhood, it needs to be perfect and it is not.
Manager response:
Hi, Jill. We are sorry the home did not meet your expectations. Thank you for sharing your feedback and for bringing some items to our attention that need some TLC. Our maintenance team has fixed the breaker on the kitchen lights and the front gate. The towels rack and toilet paper holder have been fixed as well. We will be sure to add a dish drainer and dish rack. The mirror was set in front of the window like that by the owner's preference. We hope to have another opportunity to host you in a home that is better suited to your needs.

Very bright, colorful and comfortable. Home sweet home.
Verenice A. Jan 2021
We definitely enjoyed our stay ! Everything was super clean and organized for us. The home is soooo cute inside and out. Only thing I can say that could be better, is the table is super wobbly and we felt we were going to break it if we even breathed on it, but other than that everything was lovely. Thank you !
Manager response:
We are delighted to read you enjoyed your stay, Verenice! We will get the table tightened up right away. Thank you for choosing Vacasa!

It was awesome and spacious for myself and my two dogs I brought with me, Great location seeing how it’s not too far from everywhere I got to see and I loved it
Liza A. Dec 2020
. This home is that a great location and love the decor. We headed straight there after we got married. The master bedroom bed was very very comfortable same for the second bedroom. It is a comfortable home away from home. The backyard has a grill and nice area to sit and relax. Washer and dryer available. You won’t regret your stay here. We absolutely loved it and will definitely be coming back. Stay Safe and Healthy Everyone. Thank you

The home had a great set up in the kitchen for cooking meals and pouring that 1st cup of coffee in the morning. I liked the color scheme that was throughout the house. It made it cheery and bright. It was close to various activities including the strand. Our dogs also had a good time. Feeling the breeze in the backyard was also very relaxing. Besides a few minor things, the stay was good.
Brittany L. Oct 2020
The neighbors were friendly and everything was great and as advertised. Me and my dog were very happy with the place. I do have a few suggestion: if you are going to allow dogs then don’t have white coaches and bedding. I would also suggest a doggy bag station in the backyard people aren’t pickup up after their dogs and that can get dangerous. You don’t want dogs getting parvo. That being said it had everything I needed. The kitchen was fully stocked with tools. The hose in the back was very helpful for cleaning off the beach.
Amanda M. Oct 2020
This adorable house was perfect for our family of 4 & our 2 dogs. All my daughter wanted for her 18th birthday was to go stay at the beach and be able to bring her dog. We enjoyed the location just a few blocks from the beach as it gave us a chance to admire the neat homes along the way. House was fully stocked with all needs for cooking meals daily like we did. Neighborhood was very quiet, neighbors spoke in the mornings, no problems with noise. We LOVED the backyard! Perfect for our dogs, & we even bbqd steaks one evening on the grill. Brand new washer & dryer was so handy, nothing better than coming home from vacation with everyone’s clothes already clean. We are already talking about when we can come back & book this same home!

We lived in Galveston’s East Side for several years and returned for a wedding.

Pros:
Comfy bed (felt bigger than a double)
Central air (rare in Galveston)
Very quiet
Smart TV
Front porch and backyard
In suite washer and dryer
Kitchen is very nice and new though quite empty

Cons:
-Nothing was anchored to the wall. Wall anchors or studs were not used, so curtain rods, towel hooks and mirrors were all missing the hook or actively falling off the wall
-Likewise, vanity mirrors were precariously propped on desks/shelving and the vent was off the fridge
-Front gate latch was broken and wouldn’t close
-Couches and carpets were very, very dirty
-3 lightbulbs were out (including the bathroom overhead light which was covered by a screwed in bulb cover). We contacted Vacasa to replace and didn’t hear back so we replaced them ourselves

It was a little unfortunate because, aside from the dirty carpets and couches, the other fixes would require about $20 total.
Manager response:
Hi, Rachel! We appreciate your feedback and apologize for any disappointments you experienced. The couches and carpets have been professionally cleaned, and we will discuss your other concerns with the owner. Thank you for choosing Vacasa!

The location was pretty close to all the stops we had planned. About 10 mins to the pier and centrally located to food and amenities. Neighbors were kind.
Several disappointing features. Ants were pretty bad and we saw several cockroaches. Hooks were non existent in the bathroom. The homeowner put a couple in Sheetrock and they just fell out of the wall if you hung a towel so very difficult for hand washing and showers. The bathroom is quite tiny and the sink is incredibly tiny. Good luck washing your face without water going all over you. They had hooks for towels in the hallway to the master bedroom but Some of those were also in Sheetrock so fell out and not convenient at all to the bathroom. If you like clean towels not on the floor you are very limited with options. And speaking of towels they left fuzz all over you. So you are left with white fuzz covering your face hair and body. The cleaning was just ok. Lots of hair left in shower and the floors were definitely not mopped well if at all in the house. Lights were difficult to locate. Random lights on different switches and tons of them. Colors were cute and layout was good. It was a plus to have a good washer and dryer but they are outside. Luckily I brought a clothes basket but it would be nice if property had one for guests since you are coming in from outside. Backyard is tiny but chairs were nice back there. Mirrors in master were barely hanging up and the one not at the vanity is so low you can’t use it much. It was nice to have a table with mirror for makeup since bathroom was lacking. Overall it worked for my family of 6 but I wouldn’t stay there again.
Manager response:
Hi, Tonya! We appreciate such helpful feedback and are so glad you stayed with us. Pest control comes to the house quarterly, and there has been a thorough cleaning of the home including the floors. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us during your stay for any help. Thank you!
Jessica O. Jul 2020
Our family of four enjoyed our stay! They had everything I needed to cook for my family! We also loved the grill and back patio. Would be great if there was an umbrella because Texas is hot, but still loved it. We just brought the food. Also wish there was a dishwasher because I was cooking breakfast, lunch and dinner. Kitchen and appliances are really nice. The bed were comfortable I slept like a baby! Washer and dryers was amazing. The neighbors was amazing as well. From one of the reviews I read it was a rough neighborhood. The people there was really sweet and friendly. We will definitely be back!!! Thank you for everything and also thank you for keeping in contact with me when I had questions.
Coltin D. Jun 2020
This was a great stay that had everything we needed. We enjoyed the backyard area, and close proximity to downtown.
Karen H. May 2020
I needed a few days to clear my head and this was the perfect spot. Close enough to the beach but far enough away to enjoy quiet. All you need to bring is clothes and food...everything else is provided.

The house was cute in decor. We appreciated the outdoor space in the back. Two areas that need improvement there were lots of flies which was annoying and dog poop in the front that if you were not watching you would step in.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Kelley. We are glad you enjoyed this home and apologize for the issues you experienced during your stay. We will work with our local team to ensure that these items are corrected for future guests, and we look forward to hosting you again!

The Beachin Bungalow was perfect, great layout and spacious. The house was equipped with everything we needed just like we were at home! Perfect Location minutes from the beach and restaurants on the sea wall. The back patio, backyard and grill were perfect for entertaining and on a quiet night we could here the waves of the ocean! My family loved this home away from home.
Jen V. Dec 2019
The front and back yards were perfect for a dog, and the proximity to The Strand and the Seawall was great. I loved the decor; very modern and thoughtful. Great!
Kimberly B. Dec 2019
We enjoyed it!
Stacey C. Nov 2019
Location was great. Home was very clean. Brought my own coffee but I brought pods. Bring ground..not a Keurig. Great patio! Really cute little place. Would stay again for sure.
Amari S. Oct 2019
We were able to cook. Everything we needed was available.

Everything
Stormy S. Sep 2019
Good place to stay. Good location and had everything you might need for a house. Ants were a major problem. If you left any kind of food (even dog food) out for more than 5 minutes, it was covered in ants.
If ants werent an issue the place would have been great. The beds were comfortable, everything was clean. The ants... they were a problem.
Manager response:
Stormy, thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback following your stay. We sincerely apologize the ants made their way inside and for any inconvenience they caused. We have passed your comments along to our local manager who will address the issue and schedule a pest professional if necessary. We hope to host you again!
Mark K. Aug 2019
