great location!

October 5, 2012

We arrived late in the evening and the house was waiting for us. A.C. was on so it was cooled off and the house was very comforting after our long drive. I am in love with the couch! The rest of the house was very cozy and everything we needed was there. The neighbors were very nice and the beach was very close. Dr. Haynes was very welcoming and check in to make sure everything was perfect. We had a wonderful time and we would rent her house again next time we're in Galveston. Thank you Dr. Haynes for letting us enjoy your was perfect!

Beach get-a-way

August 13, 2012

We had a pleasant stay at the beach house. It was very convenient to drive a short distance to the beach and park right on it. The little house was very clean and has an outdoor shower. There are two bedrooms but one bedroom is connected to the main room and has a sliding partition to enclose it. Unfortunately the partition is broken and won’t fully close. This was inconvenient for two couples sharing the house but would be fine for a family. There is no view to the bay or shore. There is a small view to the distant bay through the small kitchen window. In the features they state that there are 1.5 bathrooms. But there's only 1.

Owner's reply:

Thank you for your review. We have since installed a new partition. Your comfort is our greatest concern. We appreciate your bringing this matter to our attention. It has been addressed and I hope you will be our guest once again.

Family Vacation

March 29, 2011

The house was very nice and the beach was beautiful. it was quiet and there weren't a lot of people there at all. The only negatives were that the water is that the city water is nasty looking and the management people have poor communication and don't return calls. I'm still trying to get my deposit back.

Owner's reply:

This situation has been resolved. We have since hired new management who attend to our guest in an efficient manner. Thank you so much for your comments and please come and stay with us again.
