Family event

March 27, 2015

We had a great time celebrating with family and friends at Tropicali Cove. Everyone who stayed with us was amazed at the house and the amenities provided. There was plenty of room to allow adults to sit, relax and talk and the young ones to play. We were centrally located to our wedding venue, birthday venue and even had a baby reveal at the house. Guests made use of the location to attend local restaurants and visited the Kemah Board Walk area. All in all I believe everyone had a great time over the four days we spent there. We would definitely come back to TC for future visits.

My friends and I arrived Friday afternoon and were immediately in shock. The house, the land, everything about it was beautiful. We didn't want to leave. We enjoyed the pool, the jacuzzi, paddleboats, everything was magnificent.

Expectations Exceeded - The Phillips -New Yrs 2015

January 9, 2015

The website painted a picture of the villa that seemed too good to be true. We found it to be much more than we imagined it would be. Our children and grandchildren came in from Hermosa Beach, CA, Austin, Lafayette, LA and Albany NY. There were 20 of us sleeping at the villa and everyone was comfortable. We found the many conversation and entertainment areas to be ideal, Although the weather was terrible(Temp in the 40's constant wind, and rain for most days) we still had a great time. We all enjoyed the paddle boats, heated pool and hot tub. The kitchen is fantastic. All the area activities were great, too. We went to the Galveston Pleasure Pier and the Kemah Boardwalk. Both of these areas offered rides that rival major amusement parks. We will definitely be returning and will recommend to all of our friends.

Beautiful rental property with great views!

August 12, 2014

We chose this home for our wedding venue. The views are just GORGEOUS! We had our ceremony on the Palapa and it was just the perfect spot! I'm hoping that a wide walk way to the Palapa will be put in for those who wish to use it for their wedding ceremony. We did have a few issues that Alexis, the sweet property manager addressed quickly. We loved this home, the views, the paddle boats, pool, lake and privacy! Neighbors are friendly also!

Family Reunion Fun for all ages!!

August 5, 2014

Our experience was awesome and we are hoping to return for another fun vacation. We had family from 15-65 years old and everyone enjoyed the pool and palapa and paddleboats. It was very relaxing and had every convenience. Just bring your food and clothes. We had an issue with the pool but, Kara our J Properties rep, took care of it as soon as possible. The pool was a necessity for everyone because it was Texas in July!! We were disappointed that we could not use it right away until the filters had been cleaned and chlorine added to the pool due to algea. Alexis was very kind to show us the house before we rented it and she was very helpful through the rental process. We would definitely rent again. One thing that might help is the full bed be made into a queen with firmer mattress, if possible. But that's a very minor issue. Kemah and Galveson are so close, but no one went sight seeing because we had so much fun being together and visiting all day by the pool. It was a very relaxing vacation. Thank you.

Owner's reply:

Dear Guests, We found out that the pool pump timer was going out and not filtering the water properly. A new part is on order and should be replaced asap. Our appologies for this situation.

Perfect Vacation Spot

July 30, 2014

Overall we loved this place and want to travel back soon maybe in the fall or next summer. We stayed for 3 nights and four days. This spot was perfect because it was close by to everything and the grounds were beautiful and quiet. The garden and pool area are very private. My favorite thing was sitting near the pool and listening to the wind with the palm trees. The palapa over the lake was big and beautiful! Lots of patio furniture in the palapa. We tried the paddle boats and the children enjoyed them. Great alternative to swimming but with a place like this swimming all day is the way to go with small breaks to enjoy other parts of this peaceful place. The grill patio area was fun and a great place to gather and grill some yummy foods. We were surprised how well furnished the house was with everything you need from glass to plastic containers; crock pot, small and big pots and pans and utensils to barbeque with. The rooms are large and well decorated. I took extra business cards so I could recommend this place to others. We hope to be back soon! Thank you so much!

Great Place to Visit

July 26, 2014

I can't say enough great things about this place. The pool and the paddle-boats are great, but even the bookshelves are loaded with great stuff to enjoy. My family had a blast here. Will come back for sure!

The vacation house was very nice. My family and I enjoyed it. The pool needs a little attention but other than that everything was good.

Great Retreat Center for Large Groups

May 25, 2014

My church leadership team recently rented this home for a 2 day planning retreat for about 15 participants (male and female). The home offered everything we needed! There was plenty of parking inside the perimeter walls, lots of sleeping options (upstairs, downstairs, even outside in the palapa pavilion), several options for meeting rooms, a large kitchen, lots of options for seating for meals, a cozy backyard with enough room for folks to retreat and have separate conversations or individual personal time. The house is well furnished and decorated with lots of rooms. The backyard has lots of amenities like pool, outdoor grill, new jacuzzi hot tub, outdoor shower, chiminea outdoor fireplace by the waterfront, and the large palapa pavilion with 2 tables / chairs and multiple extremely comfortable lounge chairs. We had our leadership meetings in the large living room and were able to use the large hallway to set up our flip charts and stands. If the temperatures were warmer, we would have held our meetings on the palapa - there was always a nice breeze blowing. We ate some meals in the house and also found a nearby breakfast grille. This home is in a great location for many nearby attractions: Kemah Boardwalk (shopping, restaurants, and amusement park on the bayside), Galveston Island (beaches, the Strand shops and restaurants, Schlitterbahn Waterpark, Moody Gardens Aquarium), and NASA space center. Also the house in located very close to Galveston Bay. This home is perfect for a large family reunion gathering, a wedding on the palapa, or as a spiritual retreat facility.

Have just spend 12 great days in Topicali Cove. This house is so close to perfect as it can possibly become. The area is nice and quiet. The garden and pool area are very private. The palapa over the lake completes the garden and you can spend quality time here watching the sunset. The grill area is a great place to gather in the evening. The house is well furnished and it creates a lovely atmosphere. Kitchen area together with the living room overlooking the pool brings everybody together. The rooms are large and well decorated. I hope I am comming back to this place and will recommend it to extreme.

Owner's reply:

Thank you sooooo much!!!! Can't wait to see you again. :-)
