Recent Galveston vacation rental reviews

This is our 2nd time staying in this home on Market Street- short walk to Sunshine Cafe (which is a fan favorite); beach chairs for our use; clean; lovely rooms. A hit.

We recently stayed at the A Wave From it All property in Galveston, and it was an unforgettable experience. Here are some highlights: Stunning Ocean Views: The floor-to-ceiling windows provided breathtaking views of the ocean. We spent hours just gazing at the waves and soaking in the tranquility on the massive decks. Luxurious Amenities: The house is spacious, with tons of room. The commercial kitchen, equipped with top-of-the-line appliances, made cooking a pleasure for our huge family, they even had two dishwashers and a wine refrigerator. The primary suite’s spa-like bathroom was a delightful touch, you must see this thing, amazing is the only word that comes to mind. Outdoor Living Area: The expansive outdoor area, complete with a BBQ grill, allowed us to host my huge family with tons of outdoor furniture. Dining with these ocean views was incredible. Entertainment Options: The game room upstairs had ping pong and foosball, perfect for friendly competitions. Large flat-screen TVs in every room ensured entertainment for all and some much needed rest (kids are tiring sometimes). Bedrooms: Each bedroom was thoughtfully furnished, and falling asleep to the sound of waves was magical. The one thing I have to say it was a very well-designed house, the art was so fun! I'm a big fan of pop art... Hot Tub Bliss: The hot tub was a favorite spot for relaxation, it was a great way to end a day. Location: Personally, I've stayed on the west side of the island, and it becomes frustrating as there are no restaurants and Doordash doesn't even deliver. This location is near the supermarkets, restaurants, downtown and has Doordash/Uber eats! I personally think East Beach is one of the quietest beaches and cleanest beaches on the island. The Booking Experience: The booking process was smooth, and we appreciated the peace of mind with simple cancellation options. The house was spotless, local support was available 24/7, which gave us confidence during our stay. William was very friendly. Overall, A Wave From it All is a beachfront paradise that exceeded our expectations. We’ll cherish the memories made here! If you’re planning a beach getaway, I highly recommend this property.

The home was beautiful, well designed and incredibly clean. It is truly a home away from home. The concierge team was attentive and very interested in our stay being perfect. The location is ideal to get to all of the hot spots, and I especially enjoyed walking to the Grand Galvez for morning coffee and afternoon cocktails. The best part about the location is it was quiet. This place is on my top list of vacation home getaways!
