What a beautiful home in which to spend the perfect summer week of vacation! Our group always had plenty of space to "breathe" in this gorgeous home, which has obviously been decorated by a designer! The kitchen is so well stocked, and the dining area is much larger than the pictures can show. We really enjoyed our evening meals. The bathrooms were immaculate, and we all slept very well on extremely comfortable beds. We can't wait to go back next year! The owners are wonderful to work with with as well!

Our family from all over Texas met up at High Spirits in Galveston for Mother's Day. We had such a wonderful time and the beach house could not have been more perfect for our gathering. The owners are great to work with! We plan to go back soon.

We came to Galveston to go to an Art Teachers convention. We had 10 people in our party and we we are all very impressed with the furnishings. The neighborhood is quiet and the ocean is a very short walk across a main road. We all have linens ready and the instructions were very thorough. The only thing that overall seemed a bit off were the beds. All the beds were a bit uncomfortable and the did not have enough blankets on them for the time of year. We all felt very safe with the two door locking system and the video monitoring at the front with the doorbell. We would all like to say that we would visit this house again.

Stunning property with beautiful views and just a few minutes walk to the beach. There were 11 in our party, 6 adults and 5 kids and there was more than enough room for us all. We celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving weekend in fine style. We had great days at the beach and fabulous evenings in the kitchen and the pleasant screened room. The 2 outdoor showers were great with hot water to wash off the sand and salt water. Very, very well appointed home...we wanted for nothing. We will certainly be returning to this house. Thanks to the helpful owners, we all had a wonderful weekend!

The house was beautiful and fully stocked with all the necessary kitchen items (cookware, appliances, serving dishes, etc) for a weekend of homecooked meals (although it's not that far from some places to eat out). The house was clean and comfortable (it feels like you walked into a Restoration Hardware catalog). I had never stayed on that part of the island and was pleasantly surprised by the beach. It was lovely and not very crowded. I was there with a group of girlfriends and we felt like they thought of everything when they set up that house. We'll definitely come back!

High Spirits lived up to it's name. Packed with great amenities and a plush right at home feel this is a great place for a large group. I plan on using High Spirits again on my next outing in Galveston, you should too!!

A perfect place to spend your stress-free vacation. The house is immaculately clean, well furnished and complete with all the amenities for everyone to enjoy. I like the 2 showers downstairs. My husband and I were able to enjoy a badminton match in the heat of the afternoon sun in the backyard. Instead of water break, we would go for a 'shower break' . My family had a wonderful stay. Will definitely rent the house again and recommend to friends.

The house is just amazing! Nobody has to sleep on sofa/futon. We were a party of 12 with children ages 4-14 having a reunion. Only thing I would fault this house for is the lack of dining facilities (only seats for 6 plus 2 on breakfast bar.) This could easily be resolved by having an outdoor dining set on the rear balcony. Otherwise just stunning!!

High Spirits was a wonderful place to take our family for summer vacation. The house is beautiful, kitchen fully equiped and only a short walk to a semi-private beach. The two outside showers were great for cleaning up after fun at the beach and allowed us to keep the inside free of sand. This was definitely the right place to vacation five with grandchildren- plenty of room, beach access and a quick drive to Galveston attractions. We will definitely come back!

Please understand that this is a beautiful beach cabin and has lovely potential. BUT saying that our experience here was not only demeaning but uncalled for. The owners were very friendly when we arrived but we soon realized the extent of their control on this cabin. Yes they have covered all the bases in their intricately typed "BOOK OF RULES." Unfortunately, they did not have a no fun rule typed in this book. Here goes some of the many rules you will abide by. The temp can not be over 76/downstairs and 77/upstairs, no sand is allowed anywhere in the cabin, no family gatherings (even just for dinner they don't care), constant surveillance, no washer/dryer, and not to mention being treated like a child. My family is a civilized, well rounded group of people, who have been going to the beach for over 30 years. They have rented many beach cabins but by far this was the worst. Some people are meant to rent things out to people. Unfortunately the individual that rents this cabin is WAY too controlling to allow other people to use their things. I am sure they are great people but renting is just not for them. Just for the record we were asked to reduce our dinner party to 10 adults and 2 children at 8pm on our third night there. We realized that these people have some SERIOUS surveillance on this cabin. We kindly asked them to calm down and understand we just had visitors for the evening but they would not budge. So our family packed up and headed home at 12:30 in the morning on our 3rd night there. Luckily we have a strong faith in God and he lead us home safely. I just want the next group of people that consider this cabin to PLEASE FIND ANOTHER CHOICE. This cabin is truly not worth the DRAMA.

We had an amazing time at High Spirits. The house is amazing. It had all the comforts of home, from comfortable furniture to all the amenities you could possibly need to make your stay perfect. You are one block from a beautiful semi-private beach, minutes from Galveston, but feel like you're on your own private island. Only drawback was the preset thermostat, some of our group were uncomfortable at night with the mandatory 76 degree temp, other than that we will definetely be back!!

We had a wonderful stay at this home. It is a beautiful place, very nicely finished out and exceptionally comfortable for our family. It's location away from town is outstanding as the beaches are far less crowded than the in-town ones. The house is only about a five minute walk to the beach, but you do have to cross a fairly busy street. Not a big deal, and we felt like we could cross safely with our three children under 6. I would highly recommend this home.

The owners of this home were very friendly and helpful. They made our stay seem very special. The house is beautiful and a close walk to the beach. Our family had a wonderful time and would love to do this again sometime. Everything you need and more!!

We rented this home by VRBO and it was great. The house was very well kept, in a great location and close to the beach. We had excess to three miles of private beach. The Grandkids loved it and we will definitely go back. I would recommend this home to anyone with or with children. You will have a wonderful time at the beach.

Beautiful house with several great amenities. Took a group of 10 adults and we all had a great time. One of the nicer bay houses I have stayed in.

My family and I stayed here for Thanksgiving week and we had a great time. I have stayed at "nice" beach vacation homes before, but this was taking it to a different level. The home is truly magnificent and it is stocked with everything from paper products, linens, trash bags, soap/shampoo and a very thoroughly stocked kitchen. All you need to bring is clothes, food and some games/activities/movies/etc. Will definitely go back.

This was a phenomenal house with tons of character. The pride of ownership and attention to detail is what sets this house apart from the rest. My family and I could not ask for more in a vacation rental. We are already looking forward to our next stay. Considering the price per sq ft, proximity of the beach, breath taking sunset views, and luxurious amenities, this truly is one of the best kept secrets in Galveston.
