Great Location! Double ovens a plus. Beach chairs for guests would be a plus. Home needs to be updating... 1. Shower head needs replaced 2. Shower curtain does not fit the tub 3. 2nd story window framing needs added and painted 4. Carpet could be steam cleaned 5. Remotes for blinds are almost useless. Could not get some blinds to move, which let too much sun in at certain times. If those are fixed, house is easily a "5 star\"""

Wonderful home - beautifully decorated with all amenities. Great gulf views and beach access. A few maintenance issues which Ryson responded to quickly.

We loved our stay at this house! The walk to the beach was so easy and convenient. The views were beautiful! Our group of 9, 4 adults and 5 kids, fit perfectly, with room to spare. The extra living room upstairs was great for doing a big puzzle and letting the kids relax between beach outings. The kitchen was very well equipped for the cooking we needed to do during our stay. The dining areas, inside and outside, were comfortable and practical. The beds and bedding were cozy and the bathrooms were plentiful! We arrived on the day after Hurricane Nicklaus and Ryson had sent people to check out the house to be sure it was ready for our stay and to clean up where necessary. This was our third stay in a Ryson home and we hope to use y\'all again someday!

Does need some maintenance. Nothing major for us but there is a strong stale smell, some water leaks showing. Ice makers not working. Remotes for shades not working. I've stayed in many rentals in Galveston, high and low end, if you want to charge a higher price you need to maintain. Oh, and elevator not available so if you're handicapped check before booking.
