This gorgeous home is awaiting your next getaway to Galveston Island! Located in the luxury Beachside Village, you won't ever want to leave this perfect community. Beach chairs and a wagon are provided to help guests have fun at the beach. Of course, everyone can rinse the sand off in the outdoor shower before coming inside. Enjoy the open layout of the home and the spacious kitchen, the island format of which lends itself to cooking together. Straight off the kitchen, younger guests will love the first bedroom with two sets of twin bunk beds and a crib in the closet space. It's right across the hall from another bedroom with a king bed with an en suite that also opens to the hallway. Further down the hall, the laundry room is set before the second set of bedrooms. The loft bedroom has a lovely view of the neighborhood, a king bed, and an en suite bathroom with a soaking tub, standalone shower, and a vanity-style counter with double sinks. Directly across the half, the final bedroom has a king bed, a view of the neighborhood, and an en suite bathroom with an extra-tall standalone shower set with a subway tile design. Five ceiling fans have been installed throughout the home for your comfort. Kick back on one of the multiple furnished patios, or throw some fish on the private gas grill as you take in the summer breeze. This home is ready to host your getaway.

This house was perfect for our getaway. Close to beach, very roomy and comfortable. Would have gotten a 5-Star but the freezer is not working properly, but Management came out to look at it and order parts.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us! We are glad to hear you enjoyed the home and location. We are happy to report the freezer has been fixed. We hope to see you again soon!

The location to the beach and to the seawall was fantastic. The house is gorgeous but it has issues. There are ants living in the baseboards all throughout the kitchen, dining room, and living room. Periodically we would find them on the kitchen counters too. There were no hand or bath towels when we arrived. Someone from Vacasa brought us hand and beach towels the next morning and said the bath towels would arrive later but they never did. The beds were just basic beds without any of the luxuries (one wouldn't stop squeaking). Would I rent it again? Maybe, but that has more to do with the location and less to do with the overall quality of the house.
Manager response:
It's a pleasure to hear that you enjoyed your stay, Rebecca! We will ensure that pest control treatments are completed to prevent any further concerns. Thank you for staying with us. We hope to host you again!

House is exactly as listed, very spaced out and lovely decorated
Martha C. Jul 2022
It was clean, the beds were great. You made our stay easy and fun. We will come back and stay.
The only downfall was the were ants by the front door and living room. Other than that. No problems. Thanks
Amanda P. Jul 2022
Great size, pretty house with nice decor and furniture. Great location, very walkable to the beach. We brought a wagon and rolling cooler. Love that the walk to the beach is paved, with a wooden bridge to cross, rather than sand/grass to cross to get to the beach. Perfect size house for 3 small families. Clean except for a grasshopper who stayed on the wall above the kitchen cabinets for 3 days. Love the wrap around porch and rocking chairs/bench. The living room could use extra seating. Doordash delivers here. Really enjoyed our stay
Ned L. Jun 2022
The house was very spacious, clean and had tents, beach chairs& a wagon to help carry some of things to the beach
Big ‘O' F. May 2022
Only a short walk to a private beach that’s nearly empty!

Interior was very clean and bright, very open concept kitchen with beautiful decor.
Lori and Cynthia W. Mar 2022
Great home for hosting our girls weekend. Played games, did crafts and baked cookies for our fundraiser.
Sandra W. Jan 2022
We were so pleased with this rental! The house was just as the pictures showed. The rooms were comfortable and pleasant. The location was beautiful and quite.
Jake W. Jan 2022
This home is beautiful and very clean. It is well stocked with everything you would need. Great location and small walk to the beach. Will be returning

We had a great visit to Galveston for our annual Santa Hustle run! The house was perfect for the six of us. We had plenty of room, the house was very clean and the location was perfect. We will definitely be back next year!
Troy & Vickie I. Oct 2021
Had everything we needed for our stay. 100 yards from the beach. Nice area.
Nancy S. Oct 2021
Everything we needed was provided amply.
Loved having so many amenities provided. Two of the beds were in need of replacement, not enough seating for 10 guests. 5 in the living room and 6 at the dining room table. We had problem with gnats and electrical outlets in the 3 bathrooms can only handle a single user at one time.
Virginia W. Aug 2021
Loved the house it had everything we needed. The family had fun on the beach and Galveston. Vacasa helped with questions on the stay. They were available 24/7. Wonderful vacation!
Kelly H. Aug 2021
It is clean and and in good condition, and in a great area.
Craig R. Jul 2021
The reviews were right on target. The first thing I noticed was how clean everything was. The home is beautiful. When my 5 year old grandson walked in he said, "Wow, this is awesome!"

On the drive home I was thinking of the great time we had with our family. I think the handiest feature was the beach supplies provided. We used the wagon to haul the beach chairs and made good use of the two beach umbrellas. Without those umbrellas and chairs this old Grandpa would not have survived.

Manager response:
we are pleased to hear you enjoyed your visit! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your valuable feedback with us. We passed your comments along to our local manager to review and we appreciate guest’s preferences as a means to continually improve. We look forward to hosting your next stay!

First the good… The house is bright, airy, and beautifully decorated. Everything was ready when we arrived. The house is super clean! The kitchen is well-equipped with plenty of dishes and cookware for large groups. There were 9 of us, and we never felt crowded. There were plenty of towels, and even beach towels. We could’ve used a few more beach towels, but there’s a washer and dryer, so we were able to wash them and make do. The 3 master bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms are great, and the kids LOVED the bunk room! It’s a fairly short walk to the beach, and it wasn’t crowded at all. We had some bad weather, but still had a great time indoors playing table games.
This would’ve absolutely been a 5-star rating, except for not having any hot water for the last 3 days. The freezer also didn’t get cold enough to keep our food frozen, and it didn’t make any ice. I reported this and was told by Vacasa that someone would call me back within 15 minutes. No one ever called back. That’s on the property management company, not the owner, but I wanted the owner to know. I also reported (but just for information for them to prepare for the next guests) that a number of lights were burnt out. These things happen, stuff breaks, so it’s understandable, but just don’t promise a call-back if there won’t be one. Cold showers are uncomfortable, and the lack of ice in July was possibly worse, but not a deal-breaker. We would stay again at this property. Many thanks to the owners of this home for sharing your place with our family!
Manager response:
Hi Cheryl! Thank you for your review. We sincerely apologize for the hot water and freezer issues as well as the lack of communication on our end. We are actively hiring and training new agents to ensure that we can provide prompt assistance to all of our guests moving forward. We hope to host you for another pleasant stay in the future!
Kathy R. Jun 2021
My family of 10, from 3 to 60+, loved our stay at Big 'O'. The 3 bedrooms with baths were perfect. The house is bright and beautiful, the kitchen well equipped, and so close to the beach that we hope to make a return visit in the future. We loved our stay.
Katelyn H. Jun 2021
This house was very clean and the kitchen was well stocked. The only issues we had were in the main living area. For the number of people the house sleeps, we wish there would have been a couple more chairs in the living room. We werent able to all relax in there together. Also, if we had thought about it, we would have brought a firestick or something ot be able to watch more on the tv. The provided cable didn't have disney channel or really any good kids shows. We ended up renting DVDs from redbox because we were stuck in the house a lot due to rain. Overall though, we enjoyed the house and would recommend it!
Wendi M. Jun 2021
Beautiful house, perfectly clean, well-stocked with supplies. Great location just a short walk to the beach, which almost felt private! We would definitely stay here again.
Bonnie F. May 2021
With overlapping work schedules it is hard for us to get a way. We have to simply take the time when we can. This was a quick jet-set weekend! So awesome to arrive in a home that was more than expected!! First thing we noticed is how clean the home was and it has everything needed for a wonderful stay. The location is awesome - far enough away from the crowds yet close to everything. Our time was way to short and can not wait to go back! Soon, very soon!
JoAnn Y. May 2021
Beautiful home with a great floor plan and well stocked with everything you would need.
It is more spacious in person than the pictures look. Also, very CLEAN!!! We will rent again!
David B. Feb 2021
We had a great time in this wonderfully well-equipped and beautifully furnished home. It’s a delightfully short walk to the beach, and the views from the balcony are enjoyable. You can see the Gulf from there. It has plenty of beds, and although we didn’t need all of them, if we needed the extra sleeping areas, we’d gladly use this place again.
Cortney Z. Dec 2020
We really enjoyed our stay! This immaculate and stylish beach home is just a short walk to the beach and is well stocked with everything you can think of to make it feel like home - cooking and baking utensils, extra towels and linens, laundry facilities, toys for the kids and even a crib, high chair and bibs for the baby! It's well-suited to host entire families. It was rainy during our stay, but we had plenty of board games to keep us busy. Thank you!!
Thomas K. Nov 2020
Everything is better than we expected.
Rebecca M. Oct 2020
We really enjoyed your property. The attention to details and amenities and the beautiful design and comfort of your place was outstanding. We appreciated how clean everything was, and all the toddler/baby items were very useful. Would book again. Thanks!
Julie K. Sep 2020
We loved our stay at Big O Beach house! It's a beautifully decorated home in a manicured neighborhood. It beats a hotel any day!! The beach is easily accessible and we enjoyed riding the bikes that were provided. We definitely want to go back!!
James H. Aug 2020
Home was clean, nicely decorated, odor free and located in a very nice beach neighborhood. Would definitely recommend.
Adriana A. Aug 2020
