“A grand home in a wonderful and peaceful setting.”

Reviewed 29 May 2017

An amazing home surrounded by Palm trees with a beautiful pool and a palapa to sit under by the water. There is plenty of entertainment close by in Kemah or Galveston. This was our third year to go and we enjoy the peace and rest we experience there.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much! We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at Tropicali Cove! Please come back and visit!

it was a great experience in a awesome house! but if you're planning on partying w/ loud music I suggest choose another house. the neighbors are very strict!

Owner's reply: Thank you for the honest review. Yes, we encourage anyone who is planning a large party to find another venue.

“Good stay overall”

Reviewed 31 Aug 2015

We needed a house with lots of bedrooms and plenty of space for our annual guys weekend. This place certainly delivered on all those needs. It's a beautiful house with a pool and access to a lake. The hot tub did not work while we were there. And the house is in obvious need of basic maintenance and repair. But if you can look past that, you'll enjoy. Would rent again.

“Great Place, Fun for All!!”

This is by far the best home we have ever stayed in. We take our family of 15 (4 generations) somewhere every year and EVERYONE was more impressed with this home than any other place we have stayed. Plenty of space, very well kept and the outdoor is area is amazing. I would absolutely recommend this home for anyone. The kids had so much fun, we only left for Galveston 1 day. Great location and easy to get to. Treat yourself, stay here and enjoy the peace and quiet on the private lake!

“Family event”

Reviewed 27 Mar 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.

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!”

Reviewed 12 Aug 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!!”

Reviewed 5 Aug 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.
