We loved being only steps from the beach and hanging out on the second and third floor decks. Walk to the water, rent a golf cart, or drive your car on the sand. Spacious bedrooms, three full baths, and two refrigerators to accommodate our group! Just down the street from a great restaurant and only a few minutes to fun shops. Waves for boogie boarding kept my kids in the water for hours. This was our second time at this house, and we’ll definitely be back again!

It was walking distance to the beach. Roomy and gorgeous

We loved our stay.
The house was nice and clean.
Loved feeling the ocean breeze from the balcony. The kiddos loved how close we were to the beach. We spent so much time at the beach.

Three king beds is a pretty nice setup, and so is having two fridges. Dedicate one to junk food, sodas, beer, and the other to real food!

The kids made up some soccer game on the second (upper) balcony and had a blast with that, too, which is a good not-at-the-beach activity other than screens. Take a small soccer ball if you have kids.

I didn't have any water pressure issues. I even ran all three showers at the same time for many minutes and they still blasted harder than my shower at home, so obviously that issue was fixed that other reviewers had mentioned. I wouldn't be down if my shower was unpleasant.

I didn't see any bugs, either, and I'm pretty unforgiving about that kind of thing, so I'd go low stars if I saw any. Guess that was fixed, too!

Plenty of plates. Lots of light. Toilets easily took the beatings I gave them.

We loved the beach house. It was set up so nice and it was very clean. Everything was laid out very neatly and efficient. We had some trouble with the TV remotes, there were no batteries. I called but no one ever came to check on it. Also, they may need to get an exterminator because there were some ants coming in the house by the TV built-in on the floor. We sprayed them and didn't have any more trouble. Over all it was an excellent experience. Next time I will definitely ask about the lift though because my 88 year old Dad was with us and we could have used it. I didn't know that it would be locked out.
Manager response:

This property is big, comfortable, and essentially brand new. Two fridges - seriously - this matters with a big group. This is an amazing rental.

Water pressure was fixed during our stay. The municipality had an issue. Pressure was perfect after - no issues.

This house has a great set up for large groups! The kitchen is well stocked. 2 refrigerators in the kitchen?! Man! That’s nice! The beds are all very comfy. Bring your own pillows to ensure a good night’s sleep.

The proximity to the beach is awesome! A quick 3 minute walk to the beach and the water views are awesome from the 2 balconies.

There are a few cons…

Some of the roller shades in the living room are broken. The water pressure is terrible. Only 1 faucet can be used at any given time. So if someone is taking a shower, none of the other showers or faucets will work. This is a known issue that has been reviewed over and over again. Why not fix the problem? It takes a LONG time to get 13 people showered and out the door when only one person can shower at a time. And extra towels and wash clothes would be nice.

The cleaning crew needs to focus on dusting.

Overall, a great house, but the water issues will make me think twice about booking again.
Manager response:
Hi, Deana! The Bolivar water district has come out and identified and corrected the water flow from the street to the house. The district had erroneously reduced water pressure, and it is at full pressure now. New blinds are scheduled to be installed. Thanks!

We really enjoyed our stay. The beach house was very nice. A few things we liked: Proximity to beach access and view from deck, open living and room for the family to gather, floor plan and lots of space, 2 fridges, and home appears to be a newer build. Our only dislike was the water pressure. The water pressure was really low. A few items that would make the house even better: Fixing the low water pressure, a little more focus on cleaning, fixing loose carpet on stairs. All in all house was great!
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. Please know the water pressure has been corrected at this time and is now operating properly. 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!

We loved the large spacious house and the location that was a short walk to the beach. We had plenty of room for the whole family.

The only bad part was there was only enough water pressure for one shower at a time. What good are three showers upstairs and one downstairs if you can only use one at a time? It took forever to get everyone showered and ready to go when we came in from the beach and wanted to go eat or head over to Galveston.
Manager response:
Brandy, thank you for your review. The water pressure has been investigated and is now corrected. We appreciate your feedback and hope to host you again soon.

House was beautiful, I’m a great location
John T. Jun 2021
The size of the home and the location were outstanding. Very close to the beach and the furniture and fixtures were very updated. We did experience a couple of minor issues. The water pressure was poor at times and we wished that the outdoor shower would have been enclosed for more privacy. Other than that, this was a wonderful choice for our beach vacation for the grandkids.
Manager response:
John, thank you for your review. Please know we have since inspected the water flow and corrected the pressure from the street to the house. It is now functioning properly. We appreciate your feedback and hope to host you again soon!

Location was great. House was kept clean and well and all the necessities were available
Dana S. Apr 2021
This home has everything for a large group. The 2 fridges in the kitchen was the best.
