Waterfront dog-friendly home with sweeping views - 2 dogs welcome!
Leave the rat race behind and trade it for gentle ocean breezes when you unwind at this waterfront Galveston home. This retreat offers up to six guests and two well-behaved dog companions (for a small nightly fee) the chance to relax and enjoy water-side adventures.
Perched right on the waters of Galveston's West Beach, you'll be a little over 12 miles from the attractions at Moody Gardens and just under three miles from the beachfront fun at Galveston Island State Park. You'll also have access to a nearby community pool for an additional fee.
Watch the morning sun shimmer on the rolling waters from your balcony before heading out for a day of kayaking of deep sea fishing. The private washer/dryer will keep the laundry at bay while you surf the cable channels or connect to the free WiFi and stream something on your personal device. Warm up with a fire in the fireplace, or head over to the off-site pool and dive into a good book. Let the kids play on the outdoor playground then have a snack under the shade of the covered eating area. At the end of the day, you can whip up a dish in the fully equipped kitchen.
Whether you're checking out the local attractions, throwing the ball for Fido at the park, or exploring the waters with a stand-up paddleboard, this Texas Gulf Coast home surrounds you with possibilities for adventure!

Location; cool house and very clean.
I caught a Texas slam right in my front yard. We will be back.
Ann A.Sep 2021
Our family of 4 had a great time staying here. House was very clean when we arrived and nicely decorated. Just needs a few maintenance items like a broken bed side lamp and window blinds ( I love that they are inside the glass doors). I would definitely stay here again. We were happy that we could bring our dog, he had a great time too.
Hello, Ann! We're delighted to hear that you and your family had a wonderful stay at Taylor's Perch! We appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback and bringing the broken lamp and blinds to our attention. We have passed your comments to the local manager so they can work to remedy these issues as quickly as possible. We look forward to hosting you again for another memorable family vacation!
Jason R.Aug 2021
The house was just as advertised and had a great view of the bay from the front and the canal from the back. Everything was newly updated and there was plenty of space inside and out for the family. I will look for this spot again on my next trip to Galveston.
Nicole D.Aug 2021
kayaking down the canal with the kids was a blast.
Travis D.Jul 2021
Overall good stay. Clean linens, beds comfortable.
Shelly C.Jul 2021
We loved our stay the place was nice , had everything we needed it was very clean. I really appreciated the communication we got from Vacasa you were great with information. My only critique is the check out time is too early. 6 hours to clean and sanitize seems like a long time. Other than that it has been great. Would definitely use you again.
Dannah d.Jun 2021
This place had a wonderful setup for me. And what a view of the marshy bay! The only glitch was with the tv network but I didn't need it--rather look at the bay.
Denise L.May 2021
It's a cool canal home, fish off the dock or cruise the canal in a kayak.
Carole A.May 2021
Beds so comfortable, Decor Is Awesome
Debby H.May 2021
We had a great stay. Loved the home. Very quiet. ( 2 dogs next door, but rarely barked ) customer service was excellent. We couldn’t find an iron or ironing board, but the next day they brought us one. Would definitely recommend to our friends and family.
Mary P.May 2021
This place was as nice as the pictures and write up promised...clean without heavily perfumed scents, nice decor, comfortable beds. Wouldn’t hesitate to rent again.
Louis N.Mar 2021
It was good.
Vanessa and Joseph B.Mar 2021
The location and the home were wonderful. It was perfect for our family of four. My reasons for rating it a four are, we had no WiFi, no iron, no second TV, and no porch swing at the home. These were some of the reasons we chose this home.
Hi, Vanessa and Joseph! We appreciate your feedback and apologize if anything was missing from your experience. The WiFi is properly working now, and we have located the iron. Please note the porch swing will not be replaced at this time, and there is only 1 TV available. Thank you!
Albert R.Mar 2021
Very nice stay. Home was very comfortable and relaxing.
Joseph C.Jan 2021
We were happy with it.
LISA P.Jan 2021
The house is very light and airy and well maintained. Great to have view of the bay as well as the canal. Very good knives which is unusual for a rental. My only somewhat minor complaint is that the house lacked any real wine glasses, adequate coffee cups, matching dishes, sufficient bowls, both cereal and mixing, and enough pots and pans. Easily and inexpensively fixed.
Hello Lisa, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. We have provided your valuable feedback to our local manager to look into further. We look forward to hosting you again!
Gaylynne L.Dec 2020
It was in a good location and it was so nice and quiet at night. The back patio was nice to sit look at the canal. The front patio was of the bay and it was beautiful and relaxing. The kitchen was well equipped. The beds were comfy. It was nice to have a washer and dryer on premises. The cleanliness could have been a bit better and there were a few things broken that needed repair (ie: towel rack in master very loose & fell down once). Overall we enjoyed our visit at Taylor's Perch.
Kerri H.Dec 2020
This was the first time staying on a canal. We tried out the paddle board. It was a perfect time visiting the Island.
Adrianna G.Nov 2020
The canal and fishing!
Pamela J B.Sep 2019
a very peaceful place to stay
Christine B.Aug 2019
The bay and the canal are pretty cool, great location, about a mile to the beach so get a golf cart to make it fun!
Buddy S.Aug 2019
Great location. Fisherman’s paradise. Best VRBO experience I have ever had.
Duffie C.Jul 2019
We loved the house, it was comfortable and accommodating. We loved the deck on the canal side! Would definitely stay here again.
Deborah E.Jun 2019
We love the view of the bay on the front side of the house and the canal on the backside of the house! Grilling on the pier! Fish jumping!
Maria M.Jun 2019
Our family loves to fish so this is a great place for that. You can fish off the deck or go out in the bay. We did both.
Jane B.Jun 2019
We rented this house because the front deck has a great view of the marshes and the back deck is on the canals. The house was very light, clean and with a welcoming vibe. I would rent again.
Mandi C.May 2019
House was great. Loved it!
Adam W.May 2019
The location was cool, we fished from the deck
Cynthia S.May 2019
This was a great stay. The check in and check out is very easy. The neighborhood was great. There is also a wonderful view from the deck overlooking the bay side. Will stay again.
Amy M.Nov 2018
Loved everything. Very cozy and made to feel right at hone.Recommend this property to everyone.
Angela H.Jul 2018
I was dissappointed with the cleanliness especially in kitchen. I don't like negative reviews but I think it's necessary to share my experience so that owners can make changes. Pots and pans were left unclean in cabinets with scorched food. Saw two roaches in kitchen so I was not happy.
We apologize the kitchen was not as clean as it should have been. The housekeeping issues have been addressed, and we have treated the home for roaches. Thank you!
Ronald W.Jun 2018
Loved house just a lot of lights out on deck and too dark to fish at night couldn't see water. Needs to fix lights.
Anthony G.May 2018
Great location on the island. Clean, cozy home that’s very well stocked for your comfort. Only downfalls are a teeny-tiny kitchen and noisy dogs to the left and right, but those were small blemishes. We’ll be back.
Debra A.May 2018
My best friend and I had a Mother's Day Getaway for the weekend and renting from Vacasa and staying in this Beautiful home was like staying in a Luxury Hotel. Everything we needed was there and waiting and the House was Beautiful.
Steve H.Apr 2018
We loved the views from both decks and it was nice having two large decks on opposite sides of the house to stay out of the direct sunlight. Plenty of room throughout the house for both couples and we enjoyed being able to overlook the bay or the canal. Nice neighborhood that was conveniently located to beach and town.
Heidi H.Apr 2018
Perfect, clean and Nice house.
Karen P.Mar 2018
Location, lift, electric fireplace. Vacasa charges over $100.00 for ‘management fees’ but some of the light bulbs were burnt out. The owner failed to provide trash cans in bedrooms (2) or in the bathrooms which was inconvenience that i have not encountered before. Again the owner stuffed the house bedrooms closets and some of the dresser drawers were full of stuff which did not leave a lot of room for vacation guests to store their clothes and/or toiletries . Although minor flaws, future guests may expect trash cans and storage space in their vacation rental.
David S.Mar 2018
We made the best of a rainy week to celebrate my mother’s 68th birthday. Couldn’t have asked for a better vacation rental. I work in the industry and this was one of the best experiences I’ve had over the years. Priced right, great instructions, well stocked, bonuses that I wasn’t expecting. Well done Vacasa!
DeWayne S.Dec 2017
My husband and myself rented a home in Galveston for my birthday weekend. The Vacasa Team made the reservation and check in process very easy. Upon arrival we found the home was very clean inside and out. The home had everything that we needed for a wonderful weekend, even though the weather was cold and rainy during some of the time. The heater shut off twice, BUT each time the repair man arrived at the home in a very short time and was able to get us back to working. He even came with a smile when the rain was pouring and the wind was blowing so strong. The home and whole Vacasa Team experience was wonderful.
