Looks like the pictures, space is amazing for a large family. For the cost of this place, especially compared to the place we stayed the night before which was 1/2 the price. A few disappointments : No coffee provided, the basement sweats and is very slick , would have been nice if the Air was already on and a dehumidifier running, lawn maintenance was on property at 7:00 am, on a Sunday, mowing , woke up everyone sleeping, finally roaches in the sink, now this I understand to a point since it is hard to control what people bring into the home. I did report the roaches and the lawn maintenance with pictures and still have not had a response.

We stayed at this beautiful home the night before our cruise left. It was a lovely, spacious home with comfy beds, a large kitchen and living area and an awesome basement with more bunk beds, a game room and wet bar downstairs!!! Would definitely recommend!

We weren’t sure on the location when we drove up, but we were pleasantly surprised with the interior of the home. There is plenty of sleeping options! There is a nice round dining table for games, etc. the rest of the furniture is just “ok”. It is a rental and therefore maybe not the nicest of furniture. The beds are very comfortable and plenty of bath towels for our party. We stayed only 1 night before a cruise. The house is close to all the fun shops and restaurants in Galveston near the port. It was quite stuffy when we walked in so had to turn the air down and fans on and get the bedrooms ready for sleeping. It may be nice if someone could prep the house as they have guests arriving. The fridge water and ice machine weren’t working but again, we we’re only there 1 night. Not sure this is a place I would rent for a week, but it was perfect for only 1 night!

This is a great place to go to! We had way more space than we thought. We rented for my daughter 16th birthday sleepover. The kids used the downstairs area for the most part. We loved the fact that the pool table was there as well. The only thing that we had to get was a few seasonings and food to put in for the week. Very reasonable as well! I’m already looking to book for Christmas! The craziest thing is we live in Galveston but being at this location it didn’t seem like it!
