Description of the Galveston vacation cottage rental
We have just installed wireless WIFI and cable TV! Absolutely the best rates on the island all season. Enjoy the spectacular ocean view from this cottage located in quiet Palm Beach subdivision. Perfect getaway for a couples retreat - cozy, relaxing and a private beach within footsteps. Beautifully furnished and stocked with all amenities. Recently renovated with hardwood floors, upgraded bathroom, kitchen and bedroom. Why rent a condo/hotel when you have all you need at A Frame Vista. Sry but we do not allow pets.
Area Information
Quiet Palm Beach subdivision. Located between Pirates subdivision and Pirates Cove subdivision. Palm Beach rentals are very popular due to the location bordering the beach and privacy of the area. It is a family oriented area with the beach right there so you can lounge and party all day without worries of packing and moving beach gear back and forth. Bay/Ocean fishing and golf nearby. Several small stores within less than one mile of the home. Galveston State Park (for nature and bird watchers) directly west and less than 1 mile.

Perfect little getaway

This is the most interesting, unique, comfortable, relaxing place I could have ever found. The beach just steps away and the greatest view from porch and also from the inside. I will definitely go back to this sweet A Frame Vista again. Absolutely loved this place.

"A" Little Piece Of Heaven

I brought my daughter to the beach for her birthday and a much needed get away for us both. I didn't want the normal hotel/condo experience but it was kind of a spur of the moment trip and didn't think I'd be able to find anything. I emailed and called Sandra and she got back with me right away.....and the A Frame Vista was available. This quirky little place couldn't have been more perfect (except not having the wi-fi password) and we were able to relax and forget all our problems for a weekend. It's very comfy/cozy, has everything you'll need (and more), quiet and really does have the best view ever! Next time we stay we only need to rent the deck....we spent all our time out there.....my daughter even did early morning yoga on the upper deck. We had absolutely no issues with people being loud and partying all night and were able to get some much needed rest. We were unable to meet up with Sandra but dealing with her was like talking with someone you've known for a long time----not a uncaring robot on the other end of the phone. Next time we planabeach trip, I will definitely check Sandra's properties first...as I'm confident I'll get what I want. Thank you Sandra, for making an enjoyable and memorable weekend for us! :) Amy Pellerin

Tropical Delight

My wife and I have rented from Sandra before and it was so nice to meet her...very nice and affable to my wife and I. Sandra showed us everything we needed to know about this place. We were comfortable with her and the A-Frame...I missed watching the news with no TV but that will not keep me from coming back...Thanks Sandra you are a great host...Love this place with all the tropical plants and trees..Ron

Sandra Allen

Owner's reply:

Ron it was a such a pleasure meeting you both. Love to have you back anytime. Not only are you pleasant but you always take great care and extra effort to leave any rental like you find it! You have earned a free night and we will have cable in July. Thank you and know you are always welcome. Truly appreciate having you both. Sandra :)

Birthday Week

This place was wonderful! After getting over the shock of no TV (no-I had no trouble making a week without it-will absolutely do it again) and worrying with the internet, my husband and I got down to the business of relaxing, beach-combing,eating and enjoying a couple of good novels. I cannot say enough good things about our accommodations-charming, quaint and quite comfortable. Thank you Sandra. You made our trip and we WILL be back. To everyone reading this you can't go wrong here with A Frame Vista or with Ms. Allen. Also the neighbors are great! Thank you Mr. Calvin!! (Really the only negative is the VCR could be replaced with a DVD player. That would be awesome!) So Sandra we will see you again soon!

Owner's reply:

I am looking forward to seeing you Phyllis. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay!

Cute little place close to the beach

Great little place very close to a quiet family beach. The house has all the little touches needed to complete your stay. From the garden hoses near the entrance for rinsing the sand off your feet after walking the beach to the complete kitchen with a corkscrew, the house has everything you would need for a trip to the beach. We had no trouble finding the house, getting seafood at the local market to cook and finding a place to eat close by the beach. The beach was very nice and super clean. We loved being able to walk back and forth to the house in such a short period of time. Very relaxing and we would definitely come back again.

Sandra Allen

Owner's reply:

Hi Yolanda. Come back any time. Thank you for taking great care of the property during your stay. Happy Easter! Sandra

Beach House Dream!

We LOVED the house! It's so close to the beach! We cooked fresh seafood and lounged around on the beach with cold cocktails. It's about a $30(+tip) cab ride to the Strand but very close to several restaurants on the Seawall. We will definately come back and may even make it a bi-annual trip! Thanks for everything.

Sandra Allen

Owner's reply:

Casey I am so glad you and Greg enjoyed your time at A Frame on a busy Labor Day weekend. I know the haul in from Dallas was a long ride, but sounds like it was worth the drive. You and Greg can come back anytime. In fact you will receive a free night on a four night booking or 25% off a weekend stay as you left the house just like you found it! We can't wait to see you again. Thanks again. Sandra

Relax and Unwind

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at A Frame Vista. A great place to get away from it all and it's just a short walk to the beach. Really hated to leave.

Sandra Allen

Owner's reply:

Hi Pam. So glad you enjoyed A Frame Vista. It truly is a relaxing getaway on the west end! Come back anytime. Thanks for the review. Sandra

Doesn't get any better for the money

My girlfriend and I spent 3 nights here in January and loved it. The house is small but all the room you need for a couple. We loved the front porch, which looks right down to the water. The neighborhood was quiet and we were able to settle right in. We wished we could have stayed longer. The property manager was a very helpful as well. All around a great experience! We're planning on coming back soon!

Sandra Allen

Owner's reply:

Thanks Derek. We enjoyed having you and looking forward to your next trip. Remember you receive 10% off and I may also have some other "goodies" to throw in for you and your girlfriend.

Thanks again!

Perfect for laid-back couple's getaway

This cozy A-frame beach bungalow is the perfect spot for a couple looking to get away for a few days. My boyfriend and I went down for a week to relax and enjoy the beach. We loved the floor-to-ceiling windows and the friendly feel overall. We were just a short walk--only 3 minutes--from the beach. The living room, breakfast table, and kitchen are all connected, and from each space you can enjoy the view that reaches beyond the deck. We had a great place to get work done and hang out, and we were still just a short drive from the action downtown and at the Seawall. The manager is friendly, helpful, and easy to work with. You'll feel invited, welcome, and you'll avoid the sterile feel of a pricy hotel.

Sandra Allen

Owner's reply:

Cecily. Thanks for the great review. We would love to have you again. I found your ipod and ihome. Will mail immediately.

Look forward to hearing from you for future rentals.

Thanks again. Sandra
