“Best beach vacation ever!”

Reviewed 11 Nov 2016

This was our first trip to Galveston. We decided to come here to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary. Booking the rental was very easy and Mr. Brice was very accommodating. There are so many things I loved about staying in this house! Here goes! - The view! That was the best part, you're on the beach, can't get any closer than this! - The deck was such a great size and the railing went all the way around it with a gate. Part of it was shaded which was nice. Even though there's houses close, it still seemed private. The variety of chairs was nice too. Plenty of seating. - The kitchen was fully set up with all the utensils and cookware you might need. I actually loved cooking here because the stove is overlooking the deck and great views of the ocean. - The biggest thing I appreciated was having a water hose hooked up ready to spray off our feet before heading upstairs. There's even an outdoor shower. - There is a picnic table downstairs and a BBQ grill, which we used. You get a nice breeze and still enjoy the views. Helpful tip- grill in the yard away from the house. The first time we grilled next to the outdoor shower and picnic table. Not sure if it was a coincidence but we had tiny black bugs everywhere upstairs after that. They were gone by the next morning so it was fine. - there's a nice private downstairs room. We didn't use it but it was nice because the had washer and dryer, which we used. Also had its own bathroom and shower. You can see the ocean from the windows too. - being able to do our laundry there! - The floors are a nice wood laminate and it made it easy to sweep up the sand. - The bed was very comfortable! Private bathroom in the room we stayed. - There is cable and a tv in the living room as well as the room we stayed in. There's even a DVD player and a small collection of dvds and books. - The short private path to the beach made it very convenient. Helpful tip, you might want to bring gloves to pull stickers. There were stickers all in the front yard so wear shoes. We decided to pull the stickers on the path to the beach to make it easier to use while we were there. It didn't take that long. The sticker problem probably can't be helped. So, hate to say that I recommend this house because I want to keep it to myself! I can't wait to be back! One suggestion- it would be nice to have a binder of helpful hints or reminders, like yes you can use laundry & grill. Stuff like that. Mr. Brice was very patient with my many

“Awesome Vacation and Owners!!!!”

Reviewed 20 Sep 2016

I cannot say enough about this place. It was awesome. It was wonderful to actually have someone offer what they advertised. This place had everything the owners said and more. It definitely exceeded expectations. The beach is awesome and quiet and right outside your door. Everything in the house worked wonderfully. The sunrises and sunsets were wonderful to watch. The owners were wonderful to work with to reserve the location and sent us the check in/check out instructions as they said they would. Christopher answered every question I had promptly, accurately and thoroughly. You were great to work with Christopher. In today's time it is really hard to find people who do what they say and don't deceive you. We enjoyed the relaxation at the beach house but also the convenience to the local attractions. Just FYI for any others coming to visit we went to Fisherman's Wharf and ate and it was not disappointing. Really good food and environment. Out overall experience here has been wonderful and it has been so nice ending the day coming back to the nice cozy beach house. For those of you who love Keurig coffe, there is one here to use. Plenty of towels, dishes and bedding. I know we will definitely be coming back here for weekly or even weekend getaways. I can't wait to come back and bring my grandkids with me to enjoy the beach. Thanks again Christopher for a wonderful vacation, you and your wonderful beach house are awesome.

“new vacation spot”

Reviewed 19 Jul 2016

This was our 2nd stay at Gulfstream, now our yearly vacation spot. We had a wonderful week at this property. The house is well-kept, comfortable and right on the beach. The beach is nice and absolutely un-crowded. The owners are awesome to work with.

“Fantastic place to stay”

Reviewed 15 Jul 2016

Stayed at this beachfront property for a week and had the best time. Had everything there a person would need. Quiet and cozy with the downstairs bedroom which worked out perfectly for the person that had no children. The view was fabulous. A little bit of a drive into the main area but watching the ocean made it all worthwhile. Lots of things to do within close driving distance. Can't wait to stay there again. Very enjoyable and relaxing.

“Beautiful memories”

Reviewed 5 Jan 2016

We rented out this place starting Christmas day for few days. My in-laws flown in from northern Vermont, and it was the first time they spent winter in Texas. The weather was unseasonably warm, highs in the low 80s. We were able to take walks on the beach, have coffee out on the deck over-looking the ocean, and swim in the ocean in the winter! We also had a full moon overlooking the ocean at night. It was magical. The place is beach-front: the ocean is right outside your house and deck. The beach is private, with no car access. You hear the sound of the ocean all day long. It was magical. There are two bedrooms/bathrooms upstairs and one bedroom and bathroom downstairs, perfect for my in-laws, my husband and I, plus the two kids. There could have been a better coffee pot in the house (one that would fit the coffee maker), and I wish the next door neighbor did not have a dog that was left outside and barked all the time. But everything else about the trip was perfect, and nothing could have dampened our spirits. This house is at a perfect location to build great memories. Thank you for an awesome holiday!

Owner's reply: Thanks Julia. Glad y'all enjoyed your stay. The barking issue has been addressed. Hope you will visit again. Chris

“Everything you need on the beach”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2015

Our family had a blast! Kids loved it. Loved how close it was to the beach. We sat out in the mornings and drank coffee and enjoyed the peaceful evenings looking at the stars. Loved the enclosed outdoor shower. Inside was clean - had everything we needed. Highly considering going back next year.

“Perfect location”

Great beach house with a perfect location on the beach. Deck is marvelous. Sat out there for hours watching the birds, boats, and people walking the beach. Beach house is comfortable and well equipped. We will be back. Thanks for a great vacation.
