This was a great place for our family of 6, we really enjoyed it! It was a little small but worked just fine for a short stay, and still more room than a hotel would allow. The kitchen was decently stocked for cooking in, and the beds were really comfy, everyone slept great, even on the roll away beds! We didn’t discover the second toilet down in the laundry area until later in our stay, but no big deal. The hose was perfectly placed at the base of the stairs to rinse feet after walking to the beach! It would have been better with the golf cart, but we made it to the beach twice walking with littles and it was fine. There is also a park in the neighborhood within an easy walk, and a pool that was closed for us but would have been fun too I bet once open! We walked to the marina too, and took home a half gallon of delicious margaritas for the hubs and me to enjoy. We’ll look at staying here again if we are ever back in Galveston!

Small and cozy bay house, perfect for two. We rented a golf cart for beach trips just up the street. Also, restaurant/bar, pool, tennis courts and playground in the neighborhood as well. My friends that came to visit will rent this gem in the future. Lovely holiday.
