Directly on the water - can’t beat location without pitching a tent on the beach! Small, private home opened to guests versus empty rental. Kitchen had everything you needed to cook and only 7 miles from Galveston’s best restaurants if not! Hot water, clean sheets, and we’ll maintained home - it’s all we needed!
Wesley T.Aug 2022
It was so close to the beach and had a great view
Glenn G.Jul 2022
The kids had a blast playing on the beach and it was nice to be able to see them from the balcony.
William B.Jul 2022
Very nice house had everything I needed was happy with our stay
Christopher M.Jul 2022
Great location and fun house. Needs some upgrades for sure and tight quarters but the location makes up for almost all of it!
Liz G.Jun 2022
The house was very clean with a well equipped kitchen. Lots of towels and even extra sheets if you have the need! The most fantastic feature tho is the view!! Unobstructed ocean view and we were even fortunate enough to sit on the covered porch in the swing to see a beautiful strawberry moon. Great fenced yard for your doggie too!! A real find!
Allen B.May 2022
We always enjoy our stay at Las Palmas. This time was no different. We will be back. Thanks
Susan R.May 2022
Location was PERFECT! View was lovely. House is laid out oddly on the first floor, but it worked out perfectly for us. We'd come back again~
Amy P.Feb 2022
Easy to find, right on the beach, no crowds! Friendly neighbors.
Larry D.Jan 2022
This is our 3rd property we've rented on this street. Honestly, this property was probably the least comfortable we've rented, but the incredible views make this one hard to beat.
Jason R.Nov 2021
We were just a quick stroll to the beach. It was easy for the kids to haul their stuff down there and back.
Allen B.Nov 2021
We love Las Palmas, mainly for the unobstructed view, and we plan to return. Vacasa is very efficient as well. Thanks
Nicholas D.Jul 2021
Cons: outdated, cleanliness
Pros: Location, views, decks, gas grill, large fridge, parking, fenced in for dog, beach/sand toys for kids
Overall, very enjoyable getaway. Party of 6
Lee A.May 2021
The house was perfect for both my children, grandchildren and our small dog. The house is beautifully decorated and has all the amenities to walk to the beach and set up the provided umbrella and chairs. The split level is perfect for game play upstairs and adult dining on each floor. I will definitely recommend this house to all my friends.
Halle B. B.May 2021
The only 3 things that prevented us from giving 5 stars was that it was not cleaned to the extent it should have been. When we entered there was random trash and crumbs in kitchen all over cooktop. There was no dustruffle on bed on kitchen level which is not a big deal but looked strange and an easy fix. The water filter in the fridge denoted it needed to be changed. We expected spotless cleaning especially due to Covid and it could have been much cleaner, so I had to clean with disinfectant I brought. The other problem was ants, tiny ones, probably sugar ants upstairs that was clear right when we put our cups on the coffee table. So, spray or an exterminator is needed. Those 3 items were minimal compared to the OUTSTANDING view out the large picture windows and other amenities. Although it stormed for 3 out of 4 days there, we loved sitting on each deck and swinging on the porch swings and relaxing to a great and welcomed cool breeze. The day we did venture to the beach it was just steps from the beach so really superior location and easy! We enjoyed catching some rays and walking down the beach that was not crowded at all. The air conditioning, fans, and tv worked nicely and bathrooms were all in working order and outfitted with clean towels. We enjoyed the homey feel and decor of Las Palmas Hacienda and can see the owners put much love and attention into making this house so charming. The split level layout is interesting, but workable. An older person, small child, or pet would not be able to maneuver the very skinny spiral staircase, but have to go upstairs by way of outdoor stairs. For us, it was not a problem. The fenced in yard is such a bonus for children or pets but we could not take advantage of due to constant rain. Our dog enjoyed sitting on the covered enclosed porch and on the bottom level, as well. The location of the house is super...just down the highway a few minutes to a nice coffee shop/wine bar on Jamaica Beach and quick 10/15 minute drive to town/ The Strand. Vacasa was communicative in sending all necessary info on checking in and out and it was easy. They also were willing to come out to help us with the Roku/cable on the tv but we figured it out. We enjoyed our stay at this comfy home and hopefully will return soon! Thank you!
Hi, Halle! Thank you for your helpful review. The home has been sprayed for ants, and housekeeping has addressed the cleanliness issues. We apologize for the inconveniences and hope to see you again.
Allen B.May 2021
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Las Palmas. The house was very clean and appeared to be well attended to. The great selling factor for this house is the huge unobstructed panoramic view of the ocean on three different levels. This alone makes it all worthwhile. We will return, hopefully soon.
Joseph B.Apr 2021
As close to the beach as you can get. Not a lot of foot traffic going by.
Mike D.Apr 2021
The weather was great and we spent time at the beach.
Candie G.Apr 2021
Perfect spot right on the water. Will be to this place for sure!
Mark B.Apr 2021
We liked how close it is to the beach, just across the dunes.
Eric H.Mar 2021
Great house with every thing you could want... perfect location and across from the beach.
Perfect for my self, wife and two boys!
Our dogs did great and layout was very dog friendly!!!
Mark M.Mar 2021
The front row home is as close as you can get to the beach. We hung out on the deck a lot.
Cari G.Feb 2021
Perfect location.The house was very clean and well stocked with everything we needed.The fenced in yard was perfect for our dogs.The house was close enough to town but yet far enough away from all the hustle and bustle of the city.We have stayed here 4 times and we are looking forward to a few more times this year.
Donald B.Feb 2021
Nice beach home only walking distance from the beach. Inside was nicely furnished and very clean. Mattress was a little hard and going upstairs somewhat challenging but overall a super home and relaxing beach getaway.
Kerry B.Feb 2021
Just a couple of things keep this ideal property from being 5 star.Pros: Beachfront! It’s a very short skip to the beach. Quiet place to relax. Has a great kitchen with lots of gadgets and plenty of dishes, pots and pans, cook ware! Cozy. Cons: In a neighborhood with houses relatively close. Stairs going up / down inside are spiral and narrow, however clever for the space! Carpeting need a good cleaning. Other than that a great get a way 👍🏼🥳
Liz V.Jan 2021
I loved the upstairs with the windows looking out over the beach. Loved having a fenced yard!! Great for kids & dogs. Nice porch with plenty of seating option. Kitchen-nice pots & pans, dishes, etc.
Patricia R.Jan 2021
We liked listening to the waves and the sunrise.
Stephen C.Jan 2021
Views better than pics suggest. Our family had a terrific week on the beach between Christmas and New Years.
Sheilah H.Dec 2020
We had a wonderful time staying in this quaint beach house! The location was perfect and the views are special all day and evening. The layout was ideal for our 3 grandkids to play inside and beach access was never better. I would happily stay here again. Comfortable family home with incredible beach access!
Adan I.Dec 2020
Fantastic beachfront location away from busy more touristy sides of Galveston. Definitely recommend
Kristina U.Dec 2020
We truly enjoyed our time at the Las Palmas Hacienda, even on a gloomy, rainy day. It was an absolutely restful ... well deserved weekend. We enjoyed it so much that we booked the house for another weekend in the winter. Love it!
Sherel T.Dec 2020
This was just a fun place to stay. It is only a couple of steps to the beach.
Rob A.Nov 2020
It is only a few steps to the beach. Maybe 20 steps....
michele c.Nov 2020

Clean house, updated/recent appliances. RIGHT ON THE BEACH, nothing in front (yet :)). Las Palmas rd is an access point for the beach and seems popular with locals. Bedroom looks out onto the surf so you can roll over and watch and listen to the waves without getting out of bed! Plenty of linens.
Kitchen utensils have everything..two crockpots, etc. Large and small coffee pot, plenty of skillets, complimentry dish soap and a few trash bags.. bring your own if you have alot of guests are stay awhile like i did ( 7 days). Motion lights below and adjacent to house. Upstairs was for the kids, I couldn't navigate the circular staircase very well so i used outside staircase. Porch on third level had a nice view but 2nd level was just as good for me. Upstairs tub needs a little work but I'm sure he's getting to that. Extra blankies, beach chairs, beach kid stuff in the downstairs garage. I really couldn't find anything they didn't have.
Kristina U.Oct 2020
Right after we returned home from our stay at the Las Palmas Hacienda, we booked the house for another weekend. We truly enjoyed our stay, and can't wait to go back. It was the perfect house for our family and a sleepover friend, We are new dog owners (adopted a little friend during COVID), and the house is perfect to keep him safe. You can tell that the owners put a lot of love into this house, and houskeeping is doing their best to make the guests feel comfortable. Thank you!
Deborah E.Oct 2020
Easy access to and from the beach
Kassy S.Oct 2020
We loved the location and the home was well stocked. We would definitely stay here again. A couple of things that need to be addressed are the condition of the upstairs bathroom - the cabinet the sink is in is in bad shape - and the gas grill does not get hot even turned on high. Other than that the home was great!
Phyllis D.Sep 2020
This cottage was absolutely perfect for our family get-away. Right on the water, beautiful sun rises and sunsets. Will stay again!
Melanie C.Sep 2020
Super cute house just steps from the beach. Great for family with kids and we would definitely stay here again.
A few things that I wish I would have known... There are only 6 forks in the kitchen which means you cannot have two meals without having to wash dishes. There is no smoke detector (there was the plastic thing that holds it but no actual smoke detector); The stairs are super cute for kids but are very hard to navigate; and, there is only one regular bed. All the rest are bunks though the bottom bunks are larger than the top.
Debbie S.Aug 2020
This house was definitely close to the beach. View was great. Comfortable home.
Christine C.Jul 2020
The location can't be beat, it was exactly what we were looking for. Waking up to Gulf views was amazing. The constant breeze on the covered porch helped offset the heat. We wanted to be away from the daily hustle and bustle of the seawall, and the location of this house delivered! The beach wasn't crowded which made social distancing easy to do. The quirky layout of the house (with the narrow spiral staircase and upstairs living room) suited our family just fine.
Marty S.Jun 2020
The view from the patio was great. So close to beach access. Loved how clean the house was. Would definitely book again.
Alleene S.Jun 2020
This house could not be any closer to the beach so the walk to the water and the views can't be beat! It could have been a bit cleaner, and it has an unusual layout of the rooms: kitchen and living room are on different floors, there is a very narrow spiral staircase to the 2nd floor, there is only 1 "adult" bed (queen), and lots of bunk beds. It would be great for a single family with several kids. For our girl trip we made it work because we wanted to be close to the beach.
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Alleene. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and apologize if the cleanliness of the home left much to be desired. We will follow-up with our housekeeping team to see that future cleans are completed to our standards, and we hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!
LeAnn D.Jun 2020
Very nice and clean home which can accommodate kids and adults.
Robert H.May 2020
Love coming to Galveston. We have enjoyed every house we have rented and this is no exception.
Sulivan J.May 2020
We had a great time at the beach! The house had GREAT views and was a short walk to the beach. We have young kids so hauling everything to and from the beach made it easy with the short walk. There were also a ton of beach toys. Had we known we wouldn’t have brought any. They also had boogie boards. Only complaint is that the refrigerator water dispenser barely works and says the filter needs to be changed. I’m glad we brought two cases of water with us. The kitchen was well stocked they even had a crockpot and tons of pots to use.
Nancy M.May 2020
Everything was perfect about this rental, especially with the beach right out the door. Clean and inviting, didn't want to be around alot of people on the beach, and I got my wish. This rental had everything we needed away from home. We will definitely be coming back!
James R.Jan 2020
What a great place! We had the grandkids along and proximity to the beach was ideal for making sand castles and having fun! Only thing I’d add to the kitchen would be a frying pan. Tough to make pancakes for breakfast without one! Thanks for a great little vaca spot on Galveston Beach!
David U.Nov 2019
This house is perfect for families. It is right on the beach. We felt safe watching our 7 and 6 yo play on the beach while watched th from the huge porch. The sunrise view every morning was breathtaking!
Joani N.Oct 2019
Once we adjusted to the living room being upstairs and kitchen downstairs we fell in love with this place. The view is incredible and makes everything else fade into the background. We will definitely rent this house again.
Michael W.Oct 2019
Place was perfect for me, wife, and our 2 yr old. Steps from the beach, great ocean views, house had everything we needed. Was clean and tidy, would recommend.
Arthur S.Oct 2019
Spacious for the family. Not easy for everyone to get to the second story from the spiral staircase.
Laura G.Sep 2019
We were about 50 steps from the beach.
Rachel W.Sep 2019
you can't beat the location
Patricia R.Aug 2019
You can't beat the location, just a few steps from the beach.
Daniel A.Jul 2019
This is my second time staying here.
William E.Jul 2019
This place is great, so close to the ocean, everything you need . We had 6 adults and 5 kids and really enjoyed our stay!
Shawn J.Jul 2019
this is literally right behind the dunes
Cari G.Jun 2019
Our family LOVES everything about this home.We have stayed here 3times this year.Everything is always perfect
William R.Jun 2019
The home was in a great location. It was small but cozy. lots of bedrooms. we had a significant maintenance issue but the management was on it quick. Great views from all levels. Easy access to the beach and cozy cabin feel.
Anthony F.Jun 2019
The home was amazing and the location to the beach was great! My family and I would stay here again!
Korey L.May 2019
I enjoyed waking up and taking a walk on the beach.
Thomas J.May 2019
The place is small but worked out good for us.
Derek W.May 2019
My family loved it.
Edna Y.May 2019
This was our second time staying at this place; we loved it so much we didn’t even look for another place to stay. The location is unbeatable! The house itself is finished quite nicely (the kitchen is fabulous), and the sleeping arrangements work great! The fenced yard downstairs and series of doggie doors makes it a dog lovers dream place for a vacation. All the amenities we could want and more!
Cari G.Apr 2019
We loved literally EVERYTHING about this home.The location was absolutely perfect,the house was wonderful and you couldn't ask for a better place to relax and enjoy the beach.
cari g.Mar 2019
Location, location, location,there isn't a better spot anywhere.we absolutely loved it.
Stacey G.Feb 2019
The other two best features of this home are the view and the sound of the waves. We sat on the front porch and listened to the waves both days of our stay here. This is our 2nd stay in this home. Love the location and the view. Very happy they now have cable TV available, although the ROKU system worked well for movies.
Mark N.Jan 2019
Nice little cottage on the ocean. It has a lot of beds and the view is beautiful. There are swinging benches on all 3 patios which is nice, the place was clean and inviting. The upstairs bedroom is very tight, the bed takes up the entire room blocking access to the closet door (I assume that is what it was, but no way to open it and no space for luggage in 2 of the 3 rooms if all the beds are being used by people) but you can sleep comfortably (twin over queen bunk upstairs and 2 twin bunks downstairs). Also the mattresses have a thick plastic liner around them that is a little awkward at first as does the couch downstairs but you get used to it. Other than that the place was great and I would recommend it.
Cindy B.Oct 2018
Great view, spotlessly clean, great kitchen. Be aware main gathering area is upstairs via spiral staircase inside or external stairs.
Susan K.Oct 2018
The location could not have been better! We loved the porch swings overlooking the beach. The home was very clean and the kitchen was well stocked with fantadtic appliances. Great rental!
Sandra Y.Oct 2018
I loved how close to the beach this house was located. My grandkids really liked the house. I only wish it had had a regular TV setup in kitchen area which is where I spent most of my time there when not on the beach. The home was well stocked with towels & enough tp, dish soap, dishwasher detergent for a few days stay but you need to take paper towels. Kitchen was well stocked with nice pots & pans, dishes, glasses, etc. Spiral stairway to upstairs greatroom & bedroom was a challenge for this grandmother but the kids loved it.
Kevin B.Sep 2018
The house was very clean and well decorated in beach decor. Loved the covered porch because it rained a lot while we were there so us girls (girl trip) were able to still sit outside, visit, and watch the waves coming in. Would stay again!
Eric W.Sep 2018
Enjoyed the proximity to the beach. Had trouble figuring out TV situation, but eventually it made sense (some written instructions by the TVs would’ve helped).
Shawn J.Aug 2018
We loved the proximity to the beach and the views from the house.
Phuong T.Jul 2018
Poline P.Jul 2018
This rental beach house was lovely, well equipped and comfortable. Wonderful view of the ocean and only 30 yards from the beach. I would recommend this to anyone.
Donna S.Jun 2018
Our family loved spending time together and being on the beach, allowed for our family to enjoy the beach at our own individual pace. The home is clean, we appreciated the outdoor shower to get the sand off, and the kids enjoyed the TV options in between beach time. Great house.
Randi H.Jun 2018
This house was at a fantastic location and very comfortable!
Anne M.Apr 2018
Excellent location. Great place for a family get away. Excellent set up for dogs and kids.
Laura L.Apr 2018
We had a wonderful stay in Galveston. The house was in a wonderful location. The neighborhood felt very safe and quiet. The beach was never crowded. The kids loved that the house was so close to the beach.
Dennis M.Apr 2018
We throughly enjoyed our stay
Frederick S.Mar 2018
This place had everything we needed for a few days, and we enjoyed it immensely. There's no cable, and the grill did not fire up, so we would have needed to be creative for a longer stay, but we have no complaints, and are thoroughly relaxed after our trip to Galveston.
Noble D.Jan 2018
Great place for families but not if children under 6, due to tight circular interior stairwell. Highly recommend for all others!
Martha R.Nov 2017
All the windows on the top floor give a gorgeous view of the beach! Kitchen is well stocked, and there is SO MUCH sleeping room, beautiful place :)
Christi A.Oct 2017
Property is VERY close to beach and ocean. Nothing but a sand dune between the house and the beach. Great view! A couple of nice swings by which to enjoy listening to the surf, taking in the view, or reading. Kitchen is very nice and is stocked with everything needed to prepare meals. Property might not work out well for elderly people or those with small toddlers because of interior spiral stairs leading to 3rd level. However, the 3rd level is also accessible via the outside stairs. Home temperature is very comfortable. There is a dehumidifier in addition to central air. Overall, a great vacation beach house largely comes down to location, location, location - and this house has it!
Jan D.Oct 2017
The house was inviting, clean and comfortable.
Kim G.Oct 2017
We couldn't have asked for a better experience. The house and location were both excellent. Rental pricing was very good too. Thank you, Vacasa!
Jane T.Oct 2017
Please note: The only seating area is upstairs. You can only get to it via a spiral staircase or go outside and use those stairs. If you have small children or a small dog, I would not recommend. If you don't, it's a great place.
Amy F.Jul 2017
We enjoyed everything about the property. It was a few steps from the beach, the views were spectacular, and the home was spotless. We had all we needed to make our stay pleasant. Two thumbs up!
Kim G.Jul 2017
Amazing! Perfect location~you can't get any closer than this. Home was very clean with plenty of Towels and toiletries. We loved the porch swings and large windows overlooking the ocean. Not that you go on vacation to spend time in the kitchen, but if you have to cook, the appliances were wonderful.
Leisha C.Jul 2017
Nice home right on the beach!
Mark C.Jul 2017
This house was the perfect size for our family of 5 (2 adults, 2 young adult children and 1 child). It sleeps 11, but that may be a bit too cozy. We had plenty of space to spread out and have our privacy when needed, yet 2 nice communal areas (kitchen and upstairs living room) for family time!
The best thing about this house is the location. The view from the upstairs living area/balcony and the covered patio are unobstructed and beautiful! The walk to the beach can be measured in seconds rather than minutes. The beach itself was clean (by Galveston standards) and not crowded.
All in all, a wonderful property that we will be renting again in the future!
Keith H.Jul 2017
This home is a few steps from the beach, meticously maintained and as described in the posting. It has a cold AC and also includes de-humidifiers.
Brian W.Jul 2017
Location is amazing. House is fine unless you have small children or babies. Only on room has space for a pack n play. All other rooms only have bunks. Layout makes it challenging to let babies nap and older kids play.
Amanda D.Jun 2017
We loved staying here! The location and fences in yard was great!
Derek W.Jun 2017
Great accommodations, fun experience for our family
Stephanie A.May 2017
If you want something right on the beach this is the place to go!
