The Dream Vacation

June 25, 2014

Where to start? My family has not had a "family" vacation in about 6 years, and this was definitely a Dream Vacation for all of us. The house was beyond our expectations. Location, comfort, cleanliness, and accessibility to the beach was absolutely perfect. My mornings were filled with the calm sounds of the ocean, and it was so peaceful and relaxing. My family will definitely be choosing Andrea's Retreat on our next Galveston stay. Darwin, I can't thank you enough for making this a vacation to remember!

Owner's reply:

We appreciate this fine review and the Orr's taking the time to write it. We seem to get a lot of Minnesotans at Andrea's Retreat. I've lived in Minneapolis and know how cold it gets there.

Amazing Vacation!

June 15, 2013

My husband and another couple and myself rented Andrea's retreat for a week. It was amazing! The location couldn't have been better. The pictures were exactly how the house looks. It was clean, modern and very welcoming. This is the first time we have stayed in a house opposed to a hotel, and it was a much better experience. We were able to cook out, sit on the deck and watch the waves or sit at the table inside and play games. The AC works wonderful! It was very relaxing. It was one of my favorite vacations ever. The owner Darwin Miller is great to work with. It was a much easier process than I had imagined. My family is planning on returning soon. Thanks for sharing your home and for an amazing vacation.

Great Getaway!

April 22, 2013

What a lovely place to stay. The house has a good view of the beach and it's just a few steps to the water. We stayed for a week and there was a time or two on the weekdays I went for a long walk and didn't pass a single person. The kitchen was very well equipped and we only went into town to eat a couple of times. Very peaceful.

Owner's reply:

We appreciate this kind review and the author's taking the time to write it. One way we keep the kitchen up to date is by including a K-cup coffee maker in addition to the traditional.

The Perfect Spot

December 27, 2012

Andrea's Retreat was the perfect spot to meet up for a relaxing and comfortable stay on Galveston's beautiful island. The property was thoughtfully equipped with everything one would need, and then some. The house was so close to the sunrises, you thought you could touch them, and the sounds and smells of the gulf rocked us into a sound and peaceful sleep each night. The owner could not have been more responsive and helpful both during the initial rent up and during our stay. Having never been to the island before, we did not know what to expect...Andrea's exceeded all of our expectations and is a great space for a smaller group looking for a fabulous beach front place.

Marilyn Bridges

Owner's reply:

We greatly appreciate this guest's review. This is from two families (brother/sister) who live on opposite sides of the U.S. and chose Galveston as a middle ground for a get-together. We had the opportunity to meet these folks and greatly enjoyed visiting with them.
