We loved the house. They kept it very clean and fresh. It smelled good when we walked it. The o ly thing we didn’t really like the house, was a little far in. Other then that everything was perfect.
Vicente G. May 2022
We love the fact that is far from other houses and the view was amazing also we got to see some flamingos, a cocodrilo or aligátor and some more animals

I am a nature person and like my solitude. This out of the way gem is just perfect if you want clean, quiet and close to nature.

The house looks exactly as it does online. It's clean and a cute little house. We have young boys that loved watching the barges coming in and out of the bay. We loved having a washer and dryer available on the property. The master bed is extremely firm but the lower bunk is softer The back pillows on the couch are soft but the couch itself is not one to relax on but it's cute. All of the pillows and bedding were high quality and very nice. Depending on your priorities in a vacation rental this one should be on the list of contenders. We enjoyed our stay.

Everything about this property and location had fit our needs well. Just be sure you bring a mattress pad and get everything you need from galveston before crossing over. Other than that its pretty darn worth the money.

This home looks nice inside but had no WiFi, only one tv in living room and the AC didn’t work out first night. This home is down at the end of a nasty road and does not seem like a nice area. Home does not pull up on the map so don’t be fooled on its location when you type it in if you’re not familiar with the area. Nothing to do close by, you have to load up and drive at least 10 minutes to be anywhere decent. No beach access and enjoy staring straight a big huge barge that likes to blow the horn at night when it starts moving.
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your experience with us, Kyle. We apologize for any misunderstanding regarding this listing; this home is not advertised as including WiFi or having more than one TV. We attempt to be as transparent with our listings as possible and provide accurate and current photos, amenities lists, and descriptions so guests can make an informed choice about what they are paying for and make the right decision for their needs. We also regret that the location of the home was not suitable for your party. While we do not share the address until the home has been booked for the security of our owners, we do provide the location on Google Maps on the listing. We encourage guests to reach out with any questions or concerns before booking, as we are happy to help. We appreciate you reaching out to us right away about the AC not working, and thank you for allowing our local management the opportunity to work toward a prompt resolution. We hope to have the opportunity to better serve you in the future.

We enjoyed our stay at this wonderful property. The location was perfect for a quiet, relaxing getaway. The beach house is beautifully decorated and it’s fully equipped with everything we needed. I love that it’s new, clean and ready for you to enjoy the second you arrive. I am looking forward to our return.
Brendden S. Jun 2021
It was very clean and quiet. The beach across the highway isn’t as packed as the beach east of there.
Cheryl M. May 2021
It was immaculately clean and tastefully decorated for a beach house, Loved the decor and the attention to detail. Quiet and peaceful. Loved watching the gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, and the privacy.
Michele H. May 2021
The inside of the home was fine. Everything one would need was provided. Unfortunately, there was no wi-fi. I must have missed that looking at the amenities.
There is somewhat of a waterview. However, it is mostly blocked because barges come and go or remain, bloocking the view.

KRose M. Jan 2021
This place was absolutely what my husband and I needed as we sputtered to the end of a very challenging year! Once we made it across the ferry to this vacation home time completely stood still! The owners have taken great care to make this aesthetically pleasing. It's quaint, quiet, beautifully decorated. well-appointed and VERY CLEAN! We would go back in a heartbeat and will be planning to do so soon! If you book this place you will not be disappointed!

If you're looking for a nice secluded spot that is not far from the beach or the fairy then this is the spot for you. It was a great getaway for me and the wife. The only issue I had was the beds. If you don't mind sleeping on a hard mattress and stiff pillows then the place is perfect for you. Other than that this place has everything you need, besides wifi. Unless I couldn't read, and they included it, then you have nothing to worry about.
Gabriela M. Sep 2020
Home on the inside is just as pictured.

Outside area is by a boat yard. Expect a lot of bugs.

Stayed for two nights and AC was out for most of it. Contacted Vacasa but they didn’t send anyone until late the second day.
There was no small countertop oven as stated.

Home looked clean but it was obvious that no one had tended to it in a long time.

Would not return.
Manager response:
Hi, Gabriela! The convection owner that was on the counter has been taken out because it was tripping the breaker. There is a toaster now available, and there is also a stove. Thank you!
Sherman K. Aug 2020
The house was beautifully decorated , clean and secluded. Enjoyed the privacy and watching the barges on the water. You can also see the Galveston skyline at night. Will definitely be back soon!
Ashley R. Jul 2020
Really cute home, very comfortable. It’s in an area along the bay that is quite isolated which we enjoyed. Please note, you don’t have a bay view since you are technically on a ship yard / dock but once you get over the fact there are commercials ships right out front, it’s fun to watch them come and go. They really didn’t bother us but I was initially disappointed since I thought it would be a view of the bay. We will certainly return.

Cute & clean house and very out of the way of the mainstream on the bay side on the Intracoastal Waterway, Marshy landscape all around it at the end of a dead end road

We had a great time and enjoyed the stay!!!!
