“All the luxuries”

Reviewed 7 Jul 2016

This is a wonderful house! The house is set up to where there is plenty of space for several families. We stayed here with another family and had a total of 13 people. We have stayed in several rentals like this and it was by far the best. The kitchen is stocked with just about every pot, pan, and cooking instrument that you could possible need. The place was immaculate inside and out. If we ever come back to the Galveston area we will definitely stay there again.

“Gorgeous sunset EVERY night!”

Reviewed 20 Jul 2015

We had six stay at the home And there was plenty of room without pullout beds etc. there are two master bedrooms with king beds and private baths. Perfect for two couples with kids. You are right on the bay and the ocean is just a few blocks away. Probably twenty minutes from most of the tourist attractions but nice and quiet. The subdivision has a private pool too.

“Beautiful Sunsets”

Reviewed 29 Jul 2014

We took our kids and grandkids on vacation and stayed in Almost Paradise for 8 days. We had a truly amazing time. Very nice home, few flaws but nothing major. The private Decks and French doors are a nice way to wake up to beautiful sunrises. Private Deck made for great fishing(no luck but fun for the wee ones) Make sure to rent a Golf Cart when you go !!!

“Great Trip”

Reviewed 12 Jul 2014

We had a great time. The managers were always available to help, even on the July 4th weekend. Right on the beach. We will be happy to go back again.

“Great relaxing family get together”

Reviewed 19 Jun 2014

We enjoyed our stay very much. The house easily handled my wife and I, with our daughters families. Great relaxation, great sunsets, and great weather, until a front came through and the winds came from the north and pushed the seaweed in the bay right into the beach area. We cleared a path and pulled the kayak through and still played in the water. All the grandkids were able to catch small fish and help Grandpa catch a few crabs. All the kids agreed that we have to come back next year, or sooner. So, we're looking forward to coming back in the not to distant futire

“Almost Paradise”

Reviewed 8 Oct 2013

Truly a wonderful place for relaxation! My family and I were able to "get away" for a few days, and this property was perfect for this. The owner was very gracious and very anxious to take care of every need. We would love to return!


Reviewed 2 Apr 2013

We love it! Thank you so much for letting us renting your house. Everything was perfect. We rent kayak for the boys and they even deliver to the house. Very clean and everything is rand new. Caught some fish but didn't have any luck with crab.

“Weekend Holiday Getaway”

Reviewed 11 Oct 2012

We had two families, a total of four adults and three children, stay at the house for three nights and we enjoyed all of the space. The views from the swing and the dock were beautiful and relaxing. The beach is located across the main road from the development and was very convenient...the kids loved playing in the water and on the sand. There were a few wear-and-tear issues (broken toilet paper holder, broken spindles on the staircase, broken bar stools in the kitchen). However, the owner was aware of the issues and stated that these would be repaired. The house was generally clean. Of course, if you looked under the beds and in the corners of the rooms you would see these places had not been cleaned for some time. For the price, this was the perfect house for the weekend.

“The Total Package”

Reviewed 8 Feb 2011

We enjoyed the house for a weekend. The house was beautiful and the view was awesome and there was nothing we needed that wasnt provided. I will definately be back several times in the near future. The owners we the best; very friendly, helpful, and courteous. I totally recommend this beachhouse.

“Friendships rule in Almost Paradise”

Reviewed 31 Oct 2010

Almost Paradise encouraged and nurtured the reunion of friendships of forty years. After we survived the twenty some steps to get in and then the sixteen or so to get to the upstairs bedrooms, we were in great shape! The sunsets and moon rises were spectacular. We enjoyed the deck immensely. The tour and sights of Galveston were a additional bonus. Although there were some cleaning service issues, it was a memorable experience. We plan to revisit in a year or so!

01/10/09 The stay at your home in Galveston was simply amazing! Everyone in the family enjoyed the spacious rooms and wonderful views. There are no complaints about the accommodations, and eventually the weather also cooperated to make the views even more breathtaking. Thank you for the opportunity to enjoy some quality time with our two daughters and their families, we hope to make this an annual event. E. Cramer TX

12/14/08 This beach house is spectacular. Our family celebrated a birthday with several families which all fit very comfortably in this house. The rooms are all very spacious and the house has all the comforts of your own home. The kids all loved the fishing dock and the sand area. We would definitely love to go back and would recommend this property to anyone.

08/13/08 We really enjoyed our stay at the house. It was a family reunion of 4 families and their chilren. The location on the bay was perfect esp with the little beach for the kids.As a fisherman the only thing missing was a place near the dock to clean our catch. I'm sure we'll be back.

07/15/08 Our Family and friends thoroughly enjoyed oursewlves during our stay. We docked our fishing boat out back and fished every morning we were there. The sunsets were awesome and the house was spacious and easily accomodated our clan. All in all a great week~.

06/10/08 Loved the house, had a nice trip with the entire family and all 13 people fit very comfortably. So close to the water and convenient to everything. House is very clean and well decorated. My favorite features were the porch swing overlooking the water, the deck and balconies where you can watch the sun set over the water, and the raised bar island in the kitchen which made food prep and putting out party food very convenient. Look forward to visiting again...
Emily, Carrollton, Tx

06/08/08 Sometimes you find the accomodations to be not as nice as represented in the advertisement. Definitely not the case here. We found the views breathtaking and were pleasantly surprised at tboth the condition of the home (like new) and the tranquility of it's location. The house exceeded our expectations and we will definitely be coming back!

04/09/08 The weekend was all too short, but we sure enjoyed your lovely home. It's hard to believe it's a rental because it looks barely lived in.
The small beach out back came in handy as a storm had washed alot of seaweed on the gulf side beaches.
We'll definitely be back for a full week next time of sunsets and maragaritas!

Anjali, Bee Cave TX

04/02/08 My family of four had a wonderful time at this beautiful beach house -- very clean and well equipped, new furnishings and linens, close to swimming pool and beach. The house is spacious and we had room to spread out and have quiet time. The view of the sunset was amazing and the shore birds were great. We will definitely be back!

We had the best time! Perfect for us. My husband really enjoyed fishing, we made friends with the neighbors, the kids enjoyed shelling on the private beach, the gulf side was perfect, too. The best of both worlds! The house had everything we needed. We definitely want to return! We've stayed in Galveston for years and this was our favorite house. Beautiful sunsets every night sitting on the deck. We want to come back and stay w/out the kids next time! Thanks!!!

sailorgirl mckinney, TX

Thank you. The house is beautiful and we had a great time. We had one 3 year old with us, who loved the private beach and all of the hermit crabs that he could catch! It is a beautiful location. We fished, rented kayaks, and just sat under the house, which always had a great breeze. I cannot think of anything that would make the house more enjoyable.
