Clean, very close walk to the beach, heat and cooling worked great, kitchen well stocked, not cluttered, laundry worked well.

Away from the crowds. Beautiful sunsets and sunrise. Nice deck. Grass very green this time of year. House in good condition.
Jessica C. Jul 2021
Great peaceful location away from all the touristy areas of Galveston but not so far away that you can’t still enjoy them if you do so choose. Perfect little family get away spot and easy access to the beach. Fully stocked kitchen. Smelled crisp and clean upon arrival and plenty of beach towels. Would totally book and stay again!

So we do VRBO or Air BNB trips once a month for the past year and this one was average at best. You can definitely tell this is run as a business and not by a owner, because the comforts were just not there. Instead of going into all the details, I'll just list the Pros and Cons.

Pros
Good Location, safe and friendly neighborhood, downstairs shower (Cold water only, but it feels great after a hot day on the beach), Cold AC, Ceiling fans in every room, Xfinity TV, Pet friendly, had to call Vacasa staff and they were SUPER friendly and helpful and clean.

Cons
Lawn not mowed leading to an abundance of mosquitos (I should probably get checked for Malaria) ! No Laundry detergent, scarce kitchen utensils (largest frying pan is like 6"), 120 grit sandpaper for toilet paper, 15 thread count sheets, wifi didn't work, deck boards curling up causing a trip hazard, lint trap in the dryer hadn't been cleaned in months, unprofessional hand written instructions (for wifi code and laundry room key) on a torn off piece of paper towel

Would not recommend nor book in the future. There are better arrangements out there for the price.

This is our second visit. Home is very clean on arrival, plenty of towels, air conditioning works very well, beds comfortable, has everything in kitchen you need, with easy access to beach. Being on very west end of Island, found Seven Seas Groceries and great food at Nate's Seafood are a real bonus.
Charles P. Jul 2021
Pros: Clean place. Enough bath towles for the stay.
Cons:
1) internet was out the last half of my stay so no TV access... very boring for last half of my stay.

2).The property manager wasn't aware that a late check out was granted as I requested in writing (note section of booking page) during booking and I called VRBO about 1 wk prior to checkin and VRBO operator (I didn't ask for his name or employee#) confirmed it's ok for the late checkout as late as 1pm when cleaning crews begin their cleaning (I was asked to hold on on the phone for about 10-15minutes while the VRBO operator contacts the property manager then he did confirm with me 1pm checkout is ok).
When property manager called me the day of checkout, she said that she is not aware of it and even sent me a text that she did check and couldn't confirm the late checkout. She warn me that if not check out by 1pm, 1/2 day fee will be charged. I didn't plan to stay pass 12:45pm anyway but I thought that was very inconsiderate of the propery manager considering that I clearly explained to her as I stated in this review that late checkout was granted as I explained here. I suggested in a reply text to the property manager to INVESTIGATE by tracing my phone call with VRBO and find out the "male" operator who answered my call that day. That's something the property manager could investigate and find out who that operator is.
Manager response:
Hello Charles,Unfortunately, during this time, we are unable to offer early check-in or late check-out. In order to promote the health and safety of our communities, we’re expanding our cleaning measures overall and increasing the time our housekeepers spend caring for each Vacasa home. I do see that you asked in a note on your booking. But we do not allow for exceptions as our housekeepers begin at 10 am.

Very relaxed, I didn’t feel like I needed to follow all these rules and regulations before we could have a nice vacation. Great Host service.
Robert D. Apr 2021
Close to the beach.
David D. Apr 2021
It was a fun time for the whole family.
Barbara T. Mar 2021
We had a lovely stay. The only issue we had was with the washing machine and Vasca remedied it quickly. The home is in a quiet neighborhood on the far side of the island, so if you are wanting to be near the strip it may not be the place for you, but, it was perfect for us.
Mike K. Mar 2021
We liked being away from the main drag on the Island. It is very peaceful on the west side.
Teena H. Dec 2020
I love the sunrise, sunsets, the view of the water, and the house/ neighborhood was really nice. We liked not being near the hustle and the bustle but yet close to the beach. Will definitely recommend this to friends and use vacasa again when we travel.
Kimberly M. Dec 2020
It was wonderful to be here.
Lisa C. Dec 2020
Relaxing was the best.
Katie F. Sep 2020
Great home, but wouldn't recommend 8 people staying here. It was very tight for our group, and while there was a pull out sofa, there were no sheets provided.
Manager response:
Hi, Katie! The sofa bed sheets are located in the hall closet if they are not by the sofa. Thank you!
Richard M. Sep 2020
Did a great job with upgrades with house. Had all the comforts of home, very clean and about two blocks, easy walk to the beach.
Brandon P. Sep 2020
Once we found everything it was fine

Location and quiet neighborhood. Easy beach access. Very nice home with all the amenities.
Harold S. Jul 2020
House was as advertised! Fairly close to the beach with great amenities.
Shannon V. Jul 2020
Super close to drive up beach access, very convenient and quiet. Unfortunately the prior guests had a crawfish boil and their trash was horribly smelly, visible, and dragged around by animals. No response from Vacasa on my request for someone to come pick up. I get that trash isn’t their problem, but we couldn’t use the downstairs at all. Not good.
Beth K. Jun 2020
Bright, spacious and clean!
Mimi W. May 2020
Great house! Very clean!

The covid thing created a real challenge to enjoy anything but all in all we were ok. Gal named Kate was helpful
