The home was such an easy walk to the beach! Our husky was a little too big for the doggy door lol! The only downside was the sheets are horrible with a sunburn but that’s probably our fault, the wagon, chairs, umbrella, and cooler were very nice. 9/10 would stay here again!
Suzanne R. Apr 2022
The house and its location. Close to the beach. Comfortable beds. Dog friendly. Nice outside areas. Would recommend staying there.
Maricela M. Mar 2022
All clean and beautiful place
Dawn A. Mar 2022
The house is super cute and comfy. Perfect location for the Seawall (right behind Gaido's). House had absolutely everything we needed (kitchen was beautifully stocked plus a beach wagon and beach toys).
We took our dogs and it was perfect for dogs. Cute yard, well fenced and a doggie door.
We loved our stay here! And plan to book again this summer
Chaim N. Mar 2022
Absolutely beautiful little place and it was very clean and well taken care of.
It might be haunted though.
Jill E. Feb 2022
We enjoyed our 2 months here. Weather was colder than normal but there were a few warm days. Our dog liked it too! Perfect back yard for her. We felt to very safe here. Met some neighbors who love the neighborhood.
Kathy B. Dec 2021
This was our second stay, and, as last time, it was the perfect nest for our stay! Everything is so comfortable, love the beds! And, it’s such a cute place! The backyard was perfect for our pups! This is a great location, an easy walk to the Seawall. We walked the beach and made our way down to Murdoch’s. We had a delicious dinner at Gaido’s, an easy 5 minute walk. This is my go to place on the island!
Amy C. Nov 2021
This is an older home, conveniently located to boardwalk, and beach. Furnitures need update, however it is new to the rental program. Had everything we needed for our stay.
kellie p. Aug 2021
Clean and comfortable very close
To water!
Lisa E. Jun 2021
The decor was nice
Sara M. Jun 2021
We absolutely loved staying at the Tui Nest, the location perfect, everything is from walking distance so no need to worry about traffic. The home itself was comfortable and a perfect place to rest after a day of many activities. Would highly recommend!
Cyndy C. May 2021
As seasoned travelers this was definitely the right choice! Location is fantastic (one-way street so virtually no traffic), home is perfectly decorated for an Island stay and fully stocked with linens, pillows, blankets, towels, riding bikes and every kitchen accoutrement you'll ever need (including chip clips)! We had a great experience and can't wait to come back!
Kristal M. May 2021
Everything was really nice. We were there for our boys(cousins) prom weekend. The really enjoyed the bikes. The only thing that we wish would have been clean is the back porch. We would have had to do a deep clean of the seating and the surrounding in order to enjoy the outside. Other than that it was a great weekend.
Cynthia R. Aug 2020
cute house close to the beach, I would stay here again.
Susie J. Aug 2020
The home was really nice and clean. Perfect location close to Seawall. My family and I really enjoyed our stay.
Natalie H. Jul 2020
Great location walking distance to the beach and access to restaurant delivery and pick-up! It was well supplied with beach gear and was comfortable and adorably decorated!
Clarissa J. Jul 2020
My parents and I really enjoyed the Tui Nest. The home was very charming, comfortable, well-preserved, etc. The beds were the BEST! The neighborhood was a little noisy, as a particular neighbor was heard hammering excessively each day we were there. This, of course, is the not the fault of the homeowners or managers, but very frustrating for us as we were trying to relax in the home.
The first night we were there, we went out to dinner and left the dogs to use the doggy door to go in and out. When we returned, we realized they had gotten out and were roaming the neighborhood and were in and out of traffic. I was panicking! Turns out there was a small hole in the fence that we couldn't see and they got out. I chose the house specifically because of the doggy door and the fenced in backyard. I tried to message someone from VACASA both before and during out visit and no one responded. I found this to be very frustrating. What was the point of VACASA if no one responded? We ended up having to leave them locked in the house the rest of the time.
Overall, we had a nice time. I would recommend the house to others as it was well-stocked, close to the beach, and had everything we needed.
Manager response:
Hi, Clarissa! Thank you for staying with us at The Tui Nest and sharing your review. We would like to let you know the hole in the fence has been repaired as of November 2020. We hope to see you again!
John H. Jun 2020
There is thoughtfulness put into every detail of the house. The decor was very charming and clean. The a/c cooled the house quickly and kept it cool through the night. Easy 2 block walk to the beach as well as close to restaurants. This place definitely exceeded expectations.
Melinda R. Mar 2020
The cottage feel and charm of an older home with the necessary modern updates. Great location, easy stroll to the beach and restaurants. Accessible WiFi and TV in bedroom.
Richard W. Feb 2020
everything but the weather!
Sona K. Jan 2020
4 of us stayed in this wonderful Beach House for 2 nights and 3 days. Loved the furnishings, close location to the beach and bike path. Loved that I could bring my 2 big dogs and just cook food and relax with my family.
Heather F. Dec 2019
This house had EVERYTHING!!! We have stayed in several rent houses in Galveston, and this is our new favorite! We can’t wait to come back!
Lena S. Dec 2019
Went to Galveston for a company Christmas party! This home was amazing it fit all our needs. Easy check in process and the sleeping arrangements worked out perfectly! I will definitely be back
Cynthia A. Dec 2019
Beautiful house, walking distance to the beach and closer drive to everything else. Will for sure come back.
Ernesto R. Nov 2019
Nice spot close to everything very cozy house clean everything there we needed
shareen a. Oct 2019
This place was smelly when we walked in and there was roaches and Tiny ants, manger didn’t seem to care never staying at vacasa again- I advise you don’t either

Brittany D. Oct 2019
The decor was great, the house was well stocked with everything you need for a beach vacation, including beach toys, chairs, and 2 beach cruisers. Beds were very comfortable, we slept great!

Theodore A. Sep 2019
We hated to go home.
Jamie P. Aug 2019
Loved this place. So cute and convenient. Had all the little extras we needed. Went for a quick trip for a family celebration and it was perfect. Plenty of space and great location. Our hosts were very accommodating and allowed us to check in a little early. Since we were arriving at different times. I’d definitely stay again!
Katherine B. Aug 2019
Great location and super cute house! We had a great time and walked and biked to the seawall many times. I highly recommend this house.
Areli C. Aug 2019
The house was great in exelent condition. We were able to make good memories, it made us feel welcomed. Loved that the beach was next to the house, making it easy to access.
Misty J. Aug 2019
We loved it.
John P. Jul 2019
Nice older house on a quiet street 2 blocks from the beach. Easy walk on a sidewalk. Very well furnished place.
Brian A. B. Jul 2019
It was clean and comfortable
Seth V. Jul 2019
We loved our stay here. The home is exactly as pictured. It was perfect for our family of four and small dog. The location is fantastic. Easy walk to the beach, but quiet neighborhood. We would definitely stay here again if we come back to Galveston.
Lakshmi N. Jul 2019
Stayed over 4th July long weekend. Lovely home with plenty of space for my group of six. Very pet friendly - yard is fully fenced. Walking distance to beach and several restaurants. On 4th, we walked to Seawall Blvd to watch the parade and then watched the fireworks from front patio of the home. Home has everything you need (kitchen utensils/appliances, board games, beach chairs, bikes, Netflix, etc). Only issue we had was that the bathroom door didn't have a lock, so just need to address that.
Shannon S. Jul 2019
Cute, comfortable, and convenient.
Katrina B. Jun 2019
Plenty of room in this well appointed home near the beach. A good time was had by all!
Richard Y. Jun 2019
Easy access to everything on the island.
Elizabeth B. Jun 2019
This was a short trip
Velva J. Jun 2019
This was a great spot! Loved the idea of the fence. We have a dog and he was in heaven! Extremely Quiet neighborhood! Had everything we needed and now! Thumbs up!!
Jennifer C. Jun 2019
First time being to Galveston and I loved everything about the home
Julie B. Jun 2019
I will defiantly rent this house again, close to seawall within walking distance. House was adorable with all the furnishings and amenities.
Mark B. May 2019
We needed a yard for our dog. You had it. We needed a bbq pit, you had it. We needed clean comfortable beds, you had them. We needed a kitchen with utensils/pans so we could prepare family meals, you had it. We wanted cable, fast internet, and easy beach access...again, you had them.
Add a well tended lawn and flower beds, a decent a.c.(a requirement in Galveston), and off street parking. This is a recipe for a great family weekend. We had that!
Thanks very much for the great stay.
Bonnie I. May 2019
Cute house, great location, quiet neighborhood loved our stay!
Dayna H. Dec 2018
We really enjoyed our stay! The house was very clean and comfortable. We did have a minor problem with the bathroom sink leaking.. but they came out and fixed it immediately and were polite and friendly.. with little to no interruption to our stay. We will definitely be back!
Ruanne C. Nov 2018
We were able to spend time w our daughter. Her house was 2 blocks & the ocean was 2 blocks also. We were able to have our dog w us, that was very important to us.
Darlene R. Oct 2018
Place was just like the pics! Very clean, comfy beds, plenty of space and nice deck in the backyard. They even had beach chairs/toys and a wagon to use!
Melanie M. Sep 2018
The home was absolutely adorable, roomy for a family of five, and a very short walk to the beach! Most supplies for every day living and beach supplies were available to use and my dog loved it!
Aaron A. Sep 2018
Great comfortable place close to the beach and downtown. Couldn't be happier with our stay!
Donna M. Aug 2018
Loved walking to the beach. House was very comfortable for a small group! And dog friendly, which for us is a must!
Nora O. Jul 2018
We had just about everything we needed. A clean, neat and comfortable home.
Mari D. Jul 2018
The Tui Nest is a cute, comfortable, quirky old house and we loved it. It was the perfect location to restaurants, shopping, and the beach.
Taylor S S. May 2018
We had a blast. Such a short walk to the beach you couldn't drive faster. We walked to the beach at least once every day for a week. The kids had a lot of fun, and they loved the house. I would strongly suggest this rental. Very good for the price, and the listing is very upfront. No hidden details.
Terri L. May 2018
When we walked in the door, I felt at home. The decorating and small touches that are in this home really give you a good feeling. My two terriers loved the fenced, secured back yard, I was never concerned that they would be able to escape. The theme in the home is so relaxing, the bed was very comfy, and I loved the kitchen! The beach is in walking distance, as well as several restaurants. We would definitely stay at this home if we were to go again.
Denisha D. May 2018
Plenty of room, everything you need minus the groceries.
Alex W. Mar 2018
This house more than met our expectations even based on the photos we had already seen. It’s beautifully decorated, has all the mod cons a family with teenagers needs these days, and our little dog settled in quickly. The yard is safely enclosed for dogs and the back deck is a sun trap. Less than 5 minutes walk from the beach and easy distance to a number of popular restaurants. Highly recommended.
Bill J. Mar 2018
This iwas our second time to stay here. The house has all of the amenties you wouldhave at home andis in a great location to the SeaWall.
Nicole T. Feb 2018
I've been coming to Galveston all my life hands down the nicest place I've stayed on the island. Central to everything seconds from the Seawall quiet clean everything you needed was there very pleased. I do not and I repeat I do not want to take my family any other location other then this house
John M. Jan 2018
This is a great little alternative to a hotel, nice kitchen and right I honed Gaidos of don't want to cook. Easy walk to the beach as well.
Dennis D. Oct 2017
Chris E. Sep 2017
The house was great. Love how close to the beach it was, just a short wal. The beds were comfy. We will for sure stay again
Edris R. Sep 2017
For future guests I would say this house is lovely but there were some issues. Our feedback to management was as follows: Warn people about Toll tag. Provide better instructions on how to open and lock door, or switch to a newer system. Check cooling vents during summer months. One room was leaking overhead. Make sure toilet works well. We expect that now it should be since we called it in to be fixed during our stay. Trim shrubs close to driveway and drive up parking. Upon getting out of driver's side had to push shrub out of the way to pass. Same thing for side gate in back of house. Let people know how dog UN-friendly Galveston is.
Bonnie I. Sep 2017
Great house, great location. The house has been tastefully refinished while leaving original architectural details. House was very clean and furnishings give the house a comfortable feel. Nice front and back porch. Would definitely stay again!
Leslie M. Sep 2017
This house can't get any better. Location is stellar, house is immaculate, everything you could want for is available. Laundry pods and dryer sheets, dishwashing detergent, nice back patio, linens, towels. We will definitely be staying here again in the near future.
Linda H. Sep 2017
When I viewed the pictures of Tui Nest on the internet, it reminded me of a quaint little home on an exotic island; casual enough to be fun yet fancy enough to call home. It is both. Beds and pillows were super comfortable; slept like a baby. Ceiling fans in the bedrooms and living room were a bonus. Dishes, glasses, cups and bowls are actual glass, not plastic. The neighborhood is clean, quiet and safe. Great location. Tables and chairs on the front porch and back deck are wonderful for enjoying morning coffee. It is easy to see the owners of the home want their home to be picture perfect for anyone who stays there. And it is.
Jason H. Aug 2017
This was a great vacation house! It's location was in walking distance to the beach and driving distance to private beaches as well. It was equipped with everything we needed and was decorated perfect! It was very well kept and well taken care of. They also provided 2 beach chairs and a wagon to bring to the beach with you. The only problem we encountered (besides cutting our vacation short due to Hurricane Harvey) was with the TV's and internet not working for one day we were there. We spoke to the owners and it was resolved very quickly. They even brought us ice cream and berries for the inconvenience! I was very impressed with this house and would definitely recommend it to anyone!
Gina R. Aug 2017
We loved this property! It was so cute, clean and inviting. Every detail was thought out. There were plenty of linens if we had needed it, very comfortable and relaxing to be there visiting with family, hanging out, playing games, preparing a meal, or whatever! We especially appreciate being able to bring our dogs! Perfect small yard with a deck in the back. Will enjoy it even more when the weather gets a little cooler. Very short walk to the beach and convenient to the pier, The Strand, shopping, restaurants. We were also able to stay later on our checkout day for a small fee. Nice.
Karen G. Aug 2017
Great get-away, relaxing and cute house
Muri C. Aug 2017
The house was just blocks from the seawall. With the all terrain wagon that was provided we loaded up and walked to the beach. Thanks for providing many items that usually aren't, soaps both dish and laundry. The gift bag was really a nice surprise, thanks for the cards . Really loved the house. Didn't want to leave. If we come back will book again!
Le F. Jul 2017
We had a wonderful time in Galveston and loved staying at the Tui Nest. It is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The kitchen is nicely done with new appliances all the amenities you would need. The fact it is a block and a half to the beach was wonderful also. We had a great time and really enjoyed our stay.
Courtney M. Jul 2017
Loved location! Great place
Heather M. Jul 2017
This was our first time renting a home instead of a hotel room for vacation. It was so much better than staying in a hotel room. We are a family of four with two teenage daughters. We had plenty of room for everyone to sleep and have their own space. The owners thought of everything regarding supplies. They provided all cooking utensils, laundry soap, dish soap, hair dryer, cleaning supplies, broom, dust pan, zip lock bags, literally everything but food. We cooked at least one meal a day which helped alot on food cost. The beds were comfy, the TV worked, and the washer and dryer were a big plus. This home is two blocks away from beach so we walked almost every time. The home had beach chairs, a cooler, and a wagon to carry everything. If we decide to vacation in Galveston in the future we will definitely stay at this home.
Sabrina F. Jul 2017
Awesome location, cute house, walking distance from beach
Somer P. Jun 2017
This home is full of character and charm. We genuinely adore this home. 6 of us shared this home comfortably. The owners think of everything; bbq, two beach chairs, fold up wagon to use, Bluetooth speakers, board games, and so much more. We will be back!
Amy B. Jun 2017
Home was perfect for our trip to Galveston. Clean, decorated very nicely and comfortable. Everything you need is there. A view would've been nice, but we were just looking for a place to rest our heads after Moody Gardens!
Hannah W. Jun 2017
We stayed here for two nights and three days. We were able to check in early and check out late as the property was ready for us to do so. We brought our pets and they enjoyed it as well. The house was very clean and had what we needed as far as furniture and accommodations. We mainly enjoyed the back deck they must have newly installed. The neighbors didn't seem to mind we were out there. Overall is was very comfortable and we would definitely return.
