We really enjoyed our stay! The house was very clean and comfortable. We did have a minor problem with the bathroom sink leaking.. but they came out and fixed it immediately and were polite and friendly.. with little to no interruption to our stay. We will definitely be back!

We were able to spend time w our daughter. Her house was 2 blocks & the ocean was 2 blocks also. We were able to have our dog w us, that was very important to us.

Place was just like the pics! Very clean, comfy beds, plenty of space and nice deck in the backyard. They even had beach chairs/toys and a wagon to use!
Melanie M. Sep 2018
The home was absolutely adorable, roomy for a family of five, and a very short walk to the beach! Most supplies for every day living and beach supplies were available to use and my dog loved it!
Aaron A. Sep 2018
Great comfortable place close to the beach and downtown. Couldn't be happier with our stay!
Donna M. Aug 2018
Loved walking to the beach. House was very comfortable for a small group! And dog friendly, which for us is a must!
Nora O. Jul 2018
We had just about everything we needed. A clean, neat and comfortable home.
Mari D. Jul 2018
The Tui Nest is a cute, comfortable, quirky old house and we loved it. It was the perfect location to restaurants, shopping, and the beach.
Taylor S S. May 2018
We had a blast. Such a short walk to the beach you couldn't drive faster. We walked to the beach at least once every day for a week. The kids had a lot of fun, and they loved the house. I would strongly suggest this rental. Very good for the price, and the listing is very upfront. No hidden details.

When we walked in the door, I felt at home. The decorating and small touches that are in this home really give you a good feeling. My two terriers loved the fenced, secured back yard, I was never concerned that they would be able to escape. The theme in the home is so relaxing, the bed was very comfy, and I loved the kitchen! The beach is in walking distance, as well as several restaurants. We would definitely stay at this home if we were to go again.

Plenty of room, everything you need minus the groceries.
Alex W. Mar 2018
This house more than met our expectations even based on the photos we had already seen. It’s beautifully decorated, has all the mod cons a family with teenagers needs these days, and our little dog settled in quickly. The yard is safely enclosed for dogs and the back deck is a sun trap. Less than 5 minutes walk from the beach and easy distance to a number of popular restaurants. Highly recommended.
Bill J. Mar 2018
This iwas our second time to stay here. The house has all of the amenties you wouldhave at home andis in a great location to the SeaWall.
Nicole T. Feb 2018
I've been coming to Galveston all my life hands down the nicest place I've stayed on the island. Central to everything seconds from the Seawall quiet clean everything you needed was there very pleased. I do not and I repeat I do not want to take my family any other location other then this house

This is a great little alternative to a hotel, nice kitchen and right I honed Gaidos of don't want to cook. Easy walk to the beach as well.

The house was great. Love how close to the beach it was, just a short wal. The beds were comfy. We will for sure stay again
Bonnie I. Sep 2017
Great house, great location. The house has been tastefully refinished while leaving original architectural details. House was very clean and furnishings give the house a comfortable feel. Nice front and back porch. Would definitely stay again!
Edris R. Sep 2017
For future guests I would say this house is lovely but there were some issues. Our feedback to management was as follows: Warn people about Toll tag. Provide better instructions on how to open and lock door, or switch to a newer system. Check cooling vents during summer months. One room was leaking overhead. Make sure toilet works well. We expect that now it should be since we called it in to be fixed during our stay. Trim shrubs close to driveway and drive up parking. Upon getting out of driver's side had to push shrub out of the way to pass. Same thing for side gate in back of house. Let people know how dog UN-friendly Galveston is.
Leslie M. Sep 2017
This house can't get any better. Location is stellar, house is immaculate, everything you could want for is available. Laundry pods and dryer sheets, dishwashing detergent, nice back patio, linens, towels. We will definitely be staying here again in the near future.

When I viewed the pictures of Tui Nest on the internet, it reminded me of a quaint little home on an exotic island; casual enough to be fun yet fancy enough to call home. It is both. Beds and pillows were super comfortable; slept like a baby. Ceiling fans in the bedrooms and living room were a bonus. Dishes, glasses, cups and bowls are actual glass, not plastic. The neighborhood is clean, quiet and safe. Great location. Tables and chairs on the front porch and back deck are wonderful for enjoying morning coffee. It is easy to see the owners of the home want their home to be picture perfect for anyone who stays there. And it is.

This was a great vacation house! It's location was in walking distance to the beach and driving distance to private beaches as well. It was equipped with everything we needed and was decorated perfect! It was very well kept and well taken care of. They also provided 2 beach chairs and a wagon to bring to the beach with you. The only problem we encountered (besides cutting our vacation short due to Hurricane Harvey) was with the TV's and internet not working for one day we were there. We spoke to the owners and it was resolved very quickly. They even brought us ice cream and berries for the inconvenience! I was very impressed with this house and would definitely recommend it to anyone!
Gina R. Aug 2017
We loved this property! It was so cute, clean and inviting. Every detail was thought out. There were plenty of linens if we had needed it, very comfortable and relaxing to be there visiting with family, hanging out, playing games, preparing a meal, or whatever! We especially appreciate being able to bring our dogs! Perfect small yard with a deck in the back. Will enjoy it even more when the weather gets a little cooler. Very short walk to the beach and convenient to the pier, The Strand, shopping, restaurants. We were also able to stay later on our checkout day for a small fee. Nice.
Karen G. Aug 2017
Great get-away, relaxing and cute house
Muri C. Aug 2017
The house was just blocks from the seawall. With the all terrain wagon that was provided we loaded up and walked to the beach. Thanks for providing many items that usually aren't, soaps both dish and laundry. The gift bag was really a nice surprise, thanks for the cards . Really loved the house. Didn't want to leave. If we come back will book again!
Le F. Jul 2017
We had a wonderful time in Galveston and loved staying at the Tui Nest. It is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The kitchen is nicely done with new appliances all the amenities you would need. The fact it is a block and a half to the beach was wonderful also. We had a great time and really enjoyed our stay.
Courtney M. Jul 2017
Loved location! Great place
Heather M. Jul 2017
This was our first time renting a home instead of a hotel room for vacation. It was so much better than staying in a hotel room. We are a family of four with two teenage daughters. We had plenty of room for everyone to sleep and have their own space. The owners thought of everything regarding supplies. They provided all cooking utensils, laundry soap, dish soap, hair dryer, cleaning supplies, broom, dust pan, zip lock bags, literally everything but food. We cooked at least one meal a day which helped alot on food cost. The beds were comfy, the TV worked, and the washer and dryer were a big plus. This home is two blocks away from beach so we walked almost every time. The home had beach chairs, a cooler, and a wagon to carry everything. If we decide to vacation in Galveston in the future we will definitely stay at this home.
Sabrina F. Jul 2017
Awesome location, cute house, walking distance from beach
Somer P. Jun 2017
This home is full of character and charm. We genuinely adore this home. 6 of us shared this home comfortably. The owners think of everything; bbq, two beach chairs, fold up wagon to use, Bluetooth speakers, board games, and so much more. We will be back!
Amy B. Jun 2017
Home was perfect for our trip to Galveston. Clean, decorated very nicely and comfortable. Everything you need is there. A view would've been nice, but we were just looking for a place to rest our heads after Moody Gardens!
Hannah W. Jun 2017
We stayed here for two nights and three days. We were able to check in early and check out late as the property was ready for us to do so. We brought our pets and they enjoyed it as well. The house was very clean and had what we needed as far as furniture and accommodations. We mainly enjoyed the back deck they must have newly installed. The neighbors didn't seem to mind we were out there. Overall is was very comfortable and we would definitely return.
