Great house for large groups.

  • 5 of 5

We had 14 in our group and stayed 5 nights. Plenty of space and the location is perfect. We had crazy cold and rainy weather for our stay in Galveston so we were stuck indoors for some of the time, the only complaint would be the tv channel selection. Had the weather been better we wouldn't have noticed. We would certainly go back to this property in the future.

Great place for large families

  • 5 of 5

Great place for our large family celebrating a wedding. Plenty of room for sleeping. Only drawback is if you have several vehicles and it is a weekend, additional parking around the house is limited due to a couple of nightlife spots close by. Overall a wonderfull experience.

Cool place!

  • 5 of 5

We rented out all 4 units of this house and it was a great experience. I'd recommend this place to anyone who's looking for a good location with lots of things to do in the area while also maintaining a decent amount of privacy to relax.

Perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

The property was in the perfect location. Our 20 plus family members from 5 States spent time 5 days together, celebrated a milestone birthday and a wedding. Even though it was late October, we enjoyed walking on the beach, playing in the waves and just watching the sunrise. There were plenty of choices within walking distance for fun and entertainment including the restaurants and bars and the Pleasure Pier. There was plenty of room at the house for everyone to gather in small or large groups without feeling crowded. We enjoyed our visit. Thank you Kristi and Susan for helping us make the trip a success.

Wonderful Summer Stay - Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property in a prime location at a competitive rate. Both the property owner and the rental company were extremely friendly and easy to work with. The home had plenty of beds and bathrooms, as well as, ample parking and room for grilling/games/relaxing. The front porches (first and second stories) provide a great view of Seawall Blvd. and other close-by venues. Highly recommended for any size group, big or small (we had 15 people in 3 of the 4 units). Will definitely use this property again in the future!

Car: recommended

The property is located in one of the busiest locations in Galveston. You are 750ft walking distance to Galveston's famous spot restaurant. Less than 850ft to the Beach, just walk across the street. Across the street is the 'Rumors Night Club', and next door is the Bicycle Shop where you can rent your bikes and enjoy site seeing up and down the seawall. A short walk of 5 blocks down your at Galveston's historic pleasure pier. There is even a convenient store located 2 blocks down. Perfect spot to watch the 4th of July fireworks and not have to fight the crowds. You and your family will love the location and the view and space!
