Recent Galveston guest reviews

All the amenities inside the home were so helpful. We have stayed at other vacation homes that have not been fully stocked. We came very prepared but did not need to use our supplies. We loved it and will definitely keep the property in our file for the future. Thank you

We had a great time! The house was very clean and well furnished. Whoever stocked the house amenities thought of EVERYTHING! Thank you for the great experience and memories for my family and I.

We had a wonderful time in this cozy house. It has an incredible ocean view, my parents loved sitting on the balconies with their coffee, enjoying the ocean breeze and watching the tides rise and fall. It's also very easy to get to the beach and we had a lot of fun surfing with the kids. The house was clean, well equipped and had plenty of space for 9 of us. I would definitely recommend this house and will book again.
