This was a gently used but well stocked place to stay. Lots of books! The kitchen was very well stocked and there were plenty of fresh linens.

My family loves this house.

Great location right in the bay and the golf course. Home needs a deep clean though.

While it was nice to have two separate bedrooms and a kitchen, this property was not well kept for the price (we could have stayed for less at Moody Gardens, for example). We found garbage under one of the beds, many dirty dishes in the cupboard, and in general, it did not feel clean (may have been because the furniture / carpet/ appliances are all quite old and well worn down). Additionally, there was only one roll of toilet paper and one roll of paper towels--no extras, and no convenient place nearby to pick some up. This place does allow pets, and from experience, I realize that properties that allow pets are often less well kept, so perhaps that explains it. It was nice to be able to bring our dog along. Vacasa was available and receptive to my phone call but ultimately couldn't do anything about the issue. The location is away from the main touristy section of town. We did eat at the two local restaurants and found them to be good.

We stayed for an extended weekend over Spring Break, and we absolutely loved this place! The location was perfect - we didn't want to be in the middle of town. The complex was quiet and we loved the little fishing pier, as well as being able to throw a line out from the back entrance. We were so impressed by the basket of kids books in the closet and everything was thought of for traveling with kids - from tons of plastic cups/plates to bed rails, a pack n play, and a booster seat for meals. Our kids are 6 and 9, but we appreciated the thought for families. There were tons of towels, extra trash bags, and even a couple of laundry pods! I was able to wash all of our clothes before we headed home.

The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is the place could use some updating - it needs a coat of paint and the carpet could use a good cleaning. The bunk bed was shaky and the loose fibers underneath left my kids a little afraid to sleep on the bottom bunk.

The kids have already asked when we can come back and we're looking at dates this summer to visit again - we can't wait!

Its a small cozy accomodation and they have taken consideration to small details, or eg. umbrella if it rains, beach chairs and other household amenities. The front view of the lake and the most beautiful thing I loved was an American flag in my patio. Really enjoyed my stay The beach was 5 minutes away. It was me and my husband and we relaxed and read books the house had an amazing collection. Overall amazing experience.

Came down with our young child and were able tl relax right away. Theres a portable baby chair and pack and small bowls and things that helped us get our son adjusted to a new place.

We loved being on the water and for our family the bayside is perfect. We wee close to the beach for going duri g the day, but could come back and be.away from sand and wind in the evenings.

The location near the golf course is an extra plus. Theres views over the water for sunset and sunrise can be enjoyed walking near the golf course. Palm trees lined road is my favorite and yiu can spot wildlife on your walk.

Our son loved going exploring in the neighborhiod by stroller and everyone was so friendly. We were also a 3 mintue walk from Watermans for a nice dinner and drinks out. And close enough husband to run to the bait shop rather than having to drive into town. And we loved kayaking in the evenings listening to the concert across the way at the really felt like a holiday!

It has a little bit of everything. Its an older unit, but it feels comfortable and "hommie". Its sort of like going to grandmas lake house! A fun get away with charm.
Martha R. Aug 2020
I love the water views and I love everything in this house and definitely we came back.
Cynthia P. Jul 2020
Condo is pretty much as advertised. The area is lovely. Great AC and TV-important stuff. It is time for an interior refresh before things get shabby. But overall, it was comfortable and easy to enjoy.

Also, we liked having the garage for our bikes and having access to the water for fishing. It was very quiet and peaceful. We will be back.
Kristen W. Jun 2020
We really enjoyed our time here. It was a staycation for us . It was relaxing and We really felt that we were far away on vacation. Loved being able to walk out and fish and loved having Waterman’s restaurant next door.
YASCHICA K. Jun 2020
My family and I enjoyed our stay tremendously! It was our first time visiting Texas from Utah. The location was perfect, you are literally minutes away from everything! The views from the balcony at night were breathtaking with the view of the water. We had everything that we needed. Would definitely stay again!
jamie t. Jun 2020
We have really enjoyed staying here!! We will definitely be back! I think the only thing that I can say is bring a fan for the living room because it gets pretty warm when your cooking. But it’s because the huge windows- but the scenery is so awesome. The fishing is great- my husband really enjoyed his early Fathers Day vacation! Thank you for everything!
Jason E. Mar 2020
Family enjoyed the weekend fishing and watching golf. Will definitely recommend for small family. Will be coming back again.

This is a unique property, with a beautiful setting, and convenient location to Galveston sites of interest.
Adrienne B. Oct 2019
The apartment was very clean and had no pests. The staff was helpful and very nice. The lake right off the back porch is beautiful. It is not too far from the town at all. It sleeps 6 people comfortably with a queen bed, double bunk beds, and a sofa bed. They allow pets without a fee which I really liked. Early check in is available since the check in time is 4 pm. We could not check in early because they were changing the AC Unit. This was an issue because for out of town people bringing pets with them with no family in the area, you will need to find somewhere that allows pets to go for the time being. The dryer stopped working on us the first night. We contacted Vacasa and they were nice and tried their best to help, but maintenance does not come on weekends. We had to put a bowl in the refrigerator for a leak that started as well. When we looked under the kitchen sink, the sink pipe was leaking. The tv in the front room does not switch channels. It was no problem for us because we watched Hulu on the smart hub, but if you do not have Hulu or Netflix this may be an issue. The tv in the back room kept turning itself off due to a faulty extension cord. For individuals preferring a place with land for their dogs to play, this is not the place. They do not have a yard and the dogs will need to use the restroom in the neighbor's yard.

We liked the condo by the golf course.
Aaron C. Jul 2019
Great location, very clean and exactly as pictured. Our car battery died while parked in the garage in the day of checkout. The management company was very understanding that we were stuck there well past check out time.
bill f. Jul 2019
Our event was at the Country Club/Golf Course and it could not have worked out better. Walking distance to Waterman's Restaurant, Country Club, and Golf Course. We even enjoyed a day of fishing and the guide came right to the dock which is also walking distance. The only problem we experienced was one of the residence who felt our vehicle stuck out in the road. We back all the way to the garage door and did everything we could but to her it simply wasn't enough. We did not let that spoil the great weekend.
Russell B. Apr 2019
Really dirty, carpet was really really bad!!!!
Nice views, but come on!! Had to wash the kitchen utensils before we used them.
Nice view, but would not recommend
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Russell. We apologize if the cleanliness of the home left much to be desired, and we will follow-up with our housekeeping team to see that future cleans are completed to our standards. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

We enjoyed the quiet location of this condo, nice location to escape the cold winter up north. Older condo, but comfortable.

Rebecca A. Nov 2017
We were here for a convention for work and this house was the perfect place for us to stay. It was clean, fit our needs perfectly, and was next to the water. The view from the balcony was amazing! I will be back for a vacation with my family for sure!!!

William H. Aug 2017
We enjoyed our stay with our grandsons. The ability to use a guest pass at the country club was great. Excellent sunsets from the balcony. Be aware the bed in the master is full size.
Enjoy, Bill H

I came here with my husband and 4 kids in tow. Everyone slept well. My hubby and three of the kids love to fish so it was an ideal location. It is further away from the main hub so driving was a little longer but the condo itself was furnished perfectly to cook meals to help save money/time on eating out.
Dennis H. Jul 2017
Nice place to get away. Very quiet away from main strip but close enough for a short drive back to stores and restaurants.
