The home was clean and well-appointed. The beds were comfortable. The pool was nice and relaxing.

It was a great location within walking distance to the Pleasure Pier. It was also located close to The Strand. The neighborhood was quiet and felt very safe.

The only thing that would make this better would be to add some curtains to help block out the light for sleeping in.

Great Location, super Clean Place

It was a very short walk to Pleasure Pier and several restaurants. The condo itself was clean and comfortable and the bedding was fresh and clean. The kitchen was well equipped and having the pool steps away from your back door was also a plus. Having street parking was super convenient as parking is tough in this area.

Easy walk to the Seawall. Love having a garage and a pool and a dog-friendly place to stay. Large comfy beds.

We had a nice 2-night stay. While the unit isn’t fancy, it is mostly clean and relatively kept in good condition. The courtyard is a nice touch if you have a dog and the parking space fit our big SUV plus our large travel topper on top. The location is a short walk to the pier and beach.

The furniture is sufficient- the couch showed signs of wear and use with some stains. We used the pull-out couch which was nice. The master bed is firm but as the typical foam bed you see in lots of rentals these days. Sheets were fairly itchy. The kitchen was supplied with just the basics. While I don’t think I would stay here again, I didn’t regret staying here this trip.

A small amount of dish soap, dishwasher pods, detergent pods, paper towels and toilet paper are provided. You need to bring your own hand soap, shampoo, conditioner, body soap and tissues.

This home was located centrally to everything on the island. Nothing was more than a 15 minute drive to all the must do attractions and restaurants. Walking distance to Pleasure Peer and the Beach if you don’t mind a couple of blocks. Home was clean and comfortable especially the beds!

Evacuated to this precious townhouse for Ida and it was exactly what we needed. Clean and comfortable. Beds are great. Galveston was kind and accommodating.

We loved our stay here. We were impressed with everything, beginning to end. The unit was VERY CLEAN. Everything was as described. It seemed fresh and well-furnished for a rental, and everything was supplied as promised (plenty of bath towels, soap, toilet paper, etc.). The pool area was also very clean! The complex is quaint and has so much character but has also been renovated to feel modern. It was surprisingly quiet and we felt very safe. The front door opens to 25th Street and the back door opens to the pool area. We loved having the garage and knowing our car was secure. Garage access is a narrow alley and the garage has space for one vehicle. We walked to the Pleasure Pier and Seawall easily in about 5 minutes. We would love to go back and we highly recommend this rental for its cleanliness, comfort, safety, and location.

We had an incredible experience at this wonderful house. First of all the house is immaculate, the beds are the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in, even my restless 5 year old couldn't fight her sleep when I laid her to bed, the pool is so private and well kept, the whole area is spotless, so close to everything too which was an awesome perk. It's so quiet and peaceful, such an amazing experience. We are so thankful for this little gem we were able to escape too. We will 100% recommend this home to others and also stay here again. I promise you will not regret staying here!!

Very quiet property

This property had an amazing backyard with a pool that seemed very new. Lots of picnic tables and chairs to sit on.

We were so pleasantly surprised when we arrived to the home. The pictures depict this beautiful home well. Upon entry, the home was clean and smelled so fresh and new and was a pleasant first impression. The gorgeous *NEW* high end finishes were so clean, fresh and comfortable. Vacasa has thought of everything and made arrangements to have most every necessity available for the tenant- shampoo, conditioner, soap, laundry detergent, dish soap, hand soap... beach towels. The list goes on and on! The location is also fantastic. The home is within walking distance from the seawall and the strand and some really wonderful restaurants(Miller’s). The beds were surprisingly very comfortable and the bedrooms are large. The closets are a good size and ample hangers are provided. The full bathroom upstairs was so nice. The tile work was beautiful and the oversized shower head was an added luxury. The stackable washer and dryer is brand new, like all of the other appliances, and was put to great use while we were visiting. The fenced courtyard is what set this place apart. It’s perfect with picnic tables and a new pool that’s fenced in. We were so impressed with this unit and as a family we have agreed to return soon!! I would also add, the customer service from Vacasa was exceptional. I spoke with Zack a few times over the phone and he was wonderful! Very patient, pleasant and accommodating. Overall, we had a great experience and I would highly recommend this home.

Pool was great for my daughter! We loved having a garage so we didn't have to unload our surf boards. Beds were super comfortable. Plenty of closet/storage space. Nice appliances in the kitchen and large washer/dryer. We will be back!

Genesis retreat was great ! Upscale interior w/hardwood floors, spacious kitchen and living area and two large main bedrooms with king size beds. Clean and spacious and 1/2 block to beach. We had a great time 🙂

We absolutely loved this home. It was perfect for our visit to Galveston. It was close enough to walk to Pleasure Pier and the beach. The kitchen had everything we needed. The area by the pool was a great place to relax after a day of touring museums and/or playing on the beach. We are already looking at dates to come back.

I absolutely loved this cozy townhome. It’s location is so convenient. You can walk to the beach. The strand is minutes from the house. The house was so comfortable. It was super clean. The best part about the house was being able to come back from a day at the beach and relax in an awesome pool. The community of homes is very small so not a lot of traffic which is especially great during this pandemic. The check in and check out made it so stress free. I will absolutely recommend to anyone wanting to getaway. Oh I almost forgot to mention it’s a dog friendly community so we did not have to leave our babies behind they got to tag along for the getaway.

We have been leery about going anywhere since Covid but this was an excellent choice. It is a small property and we were super close to the beach. The townhome has an excellent layout and everything we needed. Will be going back.

This place looked great from the pictures and it didn't disappoint in reality. We had an amazing vacation here with 2 adults and 4 small kids. It was clean, has been nicely updated, had a decent amount of space to move around, a backyard that opened to a gorgeous space of grass, picnic tables, and a semi-private gorgeous pool (there are a total of 8 condos that all open up to this backyard). The manager was easily accessible and helpful for basic necessities and questions. It was only 3 blocks or so from the beach, so close! We loved this stay and would definitely go back there again.

Close to the attractions on the Seawall and downtown Strand area.
