“Fantastic Experience in a Beautiful House”

Reviewed 26 Nov 2017

Two of my girlfriends and I rented the house to ring in my 40th birthday at the beach. The house couldn't have been better. The view, the ample deck, and the proximity to the beach were wonderful; the house itself was lovely--beautifully remodeled, and had everything we could have possibly needed. It was clean and bright and came with a great television and blu-ray--perfect during the time it rained while we were there. I would recommend this house to anyone and hope to stay here again myself. It's a perfect retreat from the city. Thanks for a great experience!

Owner's reply: Thanks you for the kind words and feel free to come back to Vista Grande when you need some more beach time. thanks again Paul

“Christmas at the Beach!”

Reviewed 28 Jan 2017

My husband, Robin,and I stayed at this beach house during the Christmas holidays and had such a great time! We had stayed here before and knew we had to come back. This beach house is so cozy and has everything you could possibly need there including a washer, dryer, fireplace and hot tub! But the absolute best thing about this beach house is the AMAZING VIEW of the ocean! Watching the waves from the huge glass window facing the water is so relaxing. Mr. Brice is great about any questions you have and he responds very quickly. This is now our favorite place to go relax and we will be renting many more times to come!

Owner's reply: Lynda, Thank you very much and I am happy you had a relaxing time . Paul

“Beachfront Bliss”

Reviewed 20 Nov 2016

We stayed her in early November of 2016. The owner,Paul, responded promptly to any inquiry we had. The house is a beautiful location. The beach is steps away. A glass of wine. The sound of waves. A starry night. And the wonderful hot tub! Nothing could be more romantic! I hope you enjoy this oasis as much as we did!

Owner's reply: Hi Sherry, We really appreciate you staying with us and look forward to hearing from you and your family next year. Thank you Paul

“What a wonderfully quiet and relaxing getaway”

Reviewed 28 Oct 2016

My wife and I have stayed at Paul's beautiful beach house five times over the past few years, and on every occasion we have gone home thoroughly rejuvenated. The house itself is comfortable and well equipped with an excellent location - on the beach with easy access to everything you might need during your holiday. We will be coming back here again and again and cannot recommend this house enough to anyone looking for some quality beach time.

Owner's reply: David, Thank you for the kind words and we look forward to hearing from you again . Paul

“180 degree beach view from the bacalny”

Reviewed 12 Sep 2016

Nice house with the beach front. It's so beautiful in the morning to see the sun rise with the beach view and at night time we can watching the stars. The beach is so quiet not crowded like the other beach. The kitchen has the windows that you can look up to the beach while you cooking or cleaning the dishes. We love the house so much. We'll stay in again if we are down in Galveston. Thanks for sharing the house.

Owner's reply: Jasmine, Thank you for staying with us. I hope we hear from you again. Its definitely all about the view down there, thats for sure. Paul

“Summer Relaxation”

Reviewed 23 Jul 2016

My family stayed at the Vista Grande for 6 nights in July, 2016. This vacation was planned in order to relax after a busy, hectic summer and it delivered! There are 10 people in our family, we have 8 children ranging from 2 to 13 years old: they loved the house and the beach equally as much. The house sits directly on Palm Beach in Galveston. The view from the large paned windows is stunning. While July is got and humid, the breeze off the ocean provided the perfect cool conditions for sitting on the patio enjoying drinks in the evening our hanging out in the hottub. We have already begun arrangements to stay in this same great house next year.

Owner's reply: Brandt, Thank you for renting from us, we really appreciate it . I look forward to hearing from you for next Summer. Paul

“Girls' Weekend”

Reviewed 13 Jul 2016

Stayed here for a girls weekend. We had a great time! The house is exactly as described. Neighborhood is quiet. House is just a few steps from the water. Beach is not crowded. The owner is nice & easy to communicate with. We will be glad to stay here again.

“Best beach view in Galveston!”

Reviewed 7 Jul 2016

My family and I loved this beach house! We rented it for a week during the July 4th holiday. We loved how close the house is to the water. The view is FABULOUS! I have stayed at other beach houses in Galveston.... And this house is the closest to the beach. I hung out every evening, watched the sun go down, and sat in the hot tub at night and looked at the stars. It was just what my husband and I needed to relax from the every day busyness of life! This house is perfect for 6-9 people. The house is very open and comfortable! We loved this beach house and look forward to renting it again in the future! Cheryl Moran

Owner's reply: Cheryl, We appreciate you and your family staying at our house. I am happy you got to do some serious relaxing down there. I hope to hear from you all again next year. Paul
