“Refresher House...that is what is should be called”

Reviewed 29 Oct 2016

I stayed there with my family (6 of us) and it was so refreshing! A much needed get a way, very quite, close to the water, sea breeze on your face in the morning with the siding door to the balcony in your bedroom open...can't beat it. I live about 40 mins away and about 5 blocks from the water...this is a totally different place! Everything was pristine! My wife and I are going back in a month to have the place to ourselves. A must if you need to have a "Stay-cation". You won't be disappointed.

“Nelson at Intrepid House”

Reviewed 17 Jul 2016

The house was lovely, well maintained, and everything was provided. The furniture was comfortable and well cared for. The walkway to the beach is convenient and a parking area is available for unloading heavy items,ie, multiple floats, and shelters. We really enjoyed it and the owner was flexible, helping us to work with several issues that we were faced with. A great time.

“Great House for Galveston's West End”

Reviewed 7 Jul 2016

We had an incredible time. The house was exactly as advertised with quantity of bedrooms / bathrooms / bed sizes, etc and everything was in excellent condition in the house. The swimming pool was a short bike ride or walk away. The owner was very friendly and outgoing to help accommodate us before our stay and we didn't need to contact him during the stay at all. Great beach access as well. The neighborhood was very quiet and no issues. We planned ahead and went to the grocery before arrival in Lake Jackson (new HEB), which was necessary as there are limited groceries on this side of the island.

“Great retreat”

Reviewed 28 Oct 2015

I took my grandaughter and her family to stay for the weekend, but unfortunately a storm from Hurricane Patricia was coming in we had to leave early. But we really enjoyed the time we were there. The home is very charming, well appointed, and had everything we needed. The owners are very easy to work with and try to make your stay enjoyable. I would go back when I have more time. You won't go wrong by renting this home.

Owner's reply: Your free night is still available for the night lost to the storm. Remember the maids fee, so two or three nights would help defray some of that.

“Lovely house”

Reviewed 8 Aug 2015

Our family loved staying at Fred's house over the 4th of July weekend. We felt so comfortable there and Fred is a gracious and accommodating home owner. The house was clean and neat and had lots of room. One of the highlights was walking down to the beach and sitting with other residents to watch the fireworks go off - all up and down the beach. We have decided to make this an annual tradition for our family and have already booked for 4th of July next year!

“Summer vacation”

Reviewed 28 Jun 2015

Loved the beach access and the beaches there were very clean. The house provided much comfort, it fit our families well in needs. Only thing that was not provided that was told that would be was laundry detergent and toiletries. We would definitely like to stay here again.

Owner's reply: I regret the inconvenience. The house was stocked with toiletries--4 rolls per bath in the towel cabinet per housekeeping. They did fail to deliver the laundry detergent as per their checklist, of which I would be pleased to reimburse for. Let me know if my apology is acceptable and also please give me an idea of the amount to reimburse. purchase.

“Great Family Home”

Reviewed 23 Jun 2015

WOW! I rented this house during the 1st week of June for my family of 8 including 2 grandchildren. Each couple had their own room and my 2 grands thought it was cool that they too had their own room. The pictures on the website don't do the home justice. It is very well kept and clean. We rented a golf cart which made it convenient to load all 8 of us up to go to both the beach and the swimming pool. We will definitely try to rent this house again on our return to Galveston.

“Dad's 86th Birthday Getaway”

Reviewed 20 May 2015

This places was very very nice, spacious, clean and comfortable. The view from the bedrooms were all beautiful. The owners were very helpful, professional and caring. The neighborhood is quiet, clean, and family oriented. I do look forward to visit again in the near future. I would hope that next time the elevator will be allowed for seniors and special needs, to accommodate all, since there are stairwells.

“Great Holiday Family Getaway”

Reviewed 3 Jan 2015

Very lovely Vacation Home! The whole family loved the balcony with the ocean view. Very close to a beautiful private beach. We took several long walks. It was a wonderful place for our family to rest and spend time together during the Holidays. It was a delight to work with the Owner. So blessed to find this property.

“Comfortable, inviting home away from home!”

Reviewed 3 Sep 2014

We rented this place over labor-day weekend. Jennifer, the owner, is a fantastic host -- she is responsive, generous with her time and very fair. She offered a lot of suggestions and went out of her way to make sure we had a pleasant stay. I also loved that there is no check-in or check-out time. This is a real plus!! We had a large group (several families) with small children. There was plenty of space for us to sleep and spend time at the house watching movies and playing games comfortably. We cooked most meals at the house, walked to the nearby park and went to the beach (right across the street) often. It's a really great house for families and I would highly recommend it for large groups. The only word of caution for a future renter is that the house is not well-stocked. So plan to bring toilet paper, basic cleaning supplies (e.g.,clorox wipes), seasonings, cooking oils, etc. Also, the grill is not in good working condition so I would recommend you keep that in mind or talk to Jennifer about it if you are planning to grill. Other than those minor points, I would recommend this house without hesitation. It has a fantastic location and is very well set up to accommodate a lot people, especially families. I am hoping that the house is available the next time we plan to go to Galveston -- I would certainly stay there again
