The home was gorgeous! Very comfortable, everything you needed and just a hop skip and a jump away from the beach. Would definitely stay again but next time a bit longer. Thank you for sharing your lovely home.

Excellently appointed house for the family or persons who wish to self sustain for the visit. We had a couple of questions during our stay there that were handled professionally and promptly. Thanks!

Just a short ways from the beach, great view from the house, quality house.

The home was in excellent condition and very clean. The second floor view is beautiful and you can fully see the beach and enjoy the scenery. The pictures were an accurate reflection of the space. It is nicely done, and a nice open layout. The kitchen was fully supplied with lots of tools and lots of nice spices! There were a few cleaning supplies - if you are staying for more than 2 days, I would recommend additional paper towels, trashbags, dish soap, and laundry detergent.

We really enjoyed the home and would stay again. The management company was responsive and helpful in terms of checking in, how to's etc.

Considerations:
1. The mosquitos are very bad. Not the homes fault, just the nature of the area. This does make the driveway area unusable, including the outdoor shower. You'll need lots of bug spray for the walk to and from the beach, or you can rent a golf cart from a local company which helps some. We did not have as many issues with the bugs on the balcony.

2. The door locks are very hard to turn - we could barely do it. Not sure if this is a repair issue, but locking the doors is very, very hard.

3. The check in and check out policies are stringent. When we rented, the home was vacant for 4 days prior. We asked for just an hour earlier check in and were declined. We would have appreciated a little bit of flexibility given the basic ask.

4. The home was good for kids. If you have young ones, particularly crawlers, bring portable gates for the staircase. The spiral staircase is steep and could be a bit dangerous for younger children.
Manager response:
Hi Jackie, thank you for staying with us. We are happy that you enjoyed your visit and appreciate your feedback. We will give your feedback to the local staff for further review. Due to updated cleaning protocols in accordance with CDC guidelines, we have temporarily set our check-out time to 10am in order for our housekeeping staff to have an apt amount of time to ensure the home is thoroughly cleaned and inspected. This also means we are unable to offer an earlier check-in. Once life goes back to normal we hope to have more flexibility. Thank you for your understanding. We would love to host you again in the future.

The house was beautiful and cozy with an amazing view! We will definitely be renting this house again soon!
Linda P. Aug 2020
The view is wonderful! This home is clean and very well laid out. Love the 3rd floor terrace.
Mark N. Aug 2020
The house is very nicely appointed. Has a wonderful view of the ocean, and is a short walk away
Andie B. Jul 2020
The house is just lovely! As soon as we entered the home we can tell the house was properly cleaned. The house is so close to the beach and the view is marvelous!

We really loved this house and are so thankful the owners offer their bit of beachside heaven for rent to share with others. We had six kids and four adults and this was perfect for our social distanced beach vacation. It was very very clean, well constructed and well maintained. Great views of ocean from both beach facing balconies. Close to beach for super easy walk even with toddlers (especially with the generously provided beach friendly wagon in the garage), kitchen had everything we needed to prepare every meal at the home, and the AC performed admirably in the heat. I’d never been to this specific beach area (Pirate’s Beach) but there was plenty of room to space out and avoid being too close to other families. It was much less crowded than areas I’ve stayed closer to the sea wall. It is an especially nice touch of them to share special beach toys like the boogie boards. That’s very kind of them and it was very much appreciated for this memorable Galveston Covid Era Beach vacation.

Loved the distance to the beach. Wonderful outdoor areas for early morning coffee and wine on the lower balcony. The house was clean, neat, and cozy. Hope to return real soon.
Elizabeth H. Jul 2020
We had the best time! This house is beautiful and a great location. So much space with more than enough iimmenities.
Highly recommend it. Would love to come back.
Cynthia G. Jun 2020
Beds were comfy, kitchen was well appointed. Perfect layout with bedrooms on one floor and all living areas on top floor, including a massive bean bag. Bikes and a wagon were available for use.... but even with all these things, it was the view from the balcony that I loved the most! I would definitely come back.
Kimberly H. Jun 2020
Great location, very clean!
Lindsey K. May 2020
This was a great house for our family +
my Dad. Plenty of space, nicely appointed kitchen, short walk to the beach, very clean. Kids loved the bunk room and the giant bean bag chair in the living space. All beds were comfortable. A/C worked well in the Galveston heat. All you needed for beach fun was stored in the garage, including a wagon. The only complaint is the fan and bed in master. Fan rattled and the bed made a funny loud noise anytime we moved, but we turned on a noisemaker and all was right in the world.
Lindsey C. May 2020
The home was gorgeous, especially the kitchen and bathrooms. Way better than I could have imagined. The kids loved the enormous bean bag in the living area, I think it's called a Love Sac. They passed out on it after a fun trip to the beach.

My only complaint was the bed sheets were questionable as I wasn't convinced they had been changed after the last guests. I found several strands of hair under the duvet and on the pillows. I was able to find other sheets in the closet however so I used those instead.

The location to the beach was amazing. Within easy walking distance and the garage was full of awesome beach supplies. We found bikes, boogie boards, beach chairs and umbrellas, sand toys and a huge wagon to transport everything down to the beach. That was an awesome touch and the kids made use out of everything that was provided.

Despite the issue with the bedsheets I would definitely stay here again. The top floor balcony was amazing, the breeze at night was heavenly and the view was excellent.
Manager response:
Hi Lindsey, thank you for your thoughtful review. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We can assure you that our housekeepers change the linens between each guest. We apologize for any uncertainty regarding the bedsheets. We will be sure to pass along your feedback to the housekeeping staff. We hope to host you again in the future!

We really enjoy this vacation house! Just a short walk to the beach. Fun neighborhood for bike riding. The house is comfortable, clean and well stocked. We would definitely stay here again!
Kimberly H. Mar 2020
We LOVED this airy, clean, pretty and fun vacation home in Pirates Beach! It was perfect location for us and relaxing! We totally recommend it!
Michael A. Mar 2020
We had a great stay. Close to the beach, nice view from porch, nicely furnished. There is a coffee maker, but it requires YouTube to understand how to work it. Wish it was a Kurieg. This house will not disappoint.
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Michael! We are glad you enjoyed this home. We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement, and we'll be sure to add directions for the coffee maker. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!
