Recent Galveston vacation rental reviews

It had a perfect view of the gulf from both balconies! You could hear the sounds of the waves crashing which was very soothing. The condo was decorated very nice and had everything we could possibly need.
ANGELA S. | Feb 2024
The house is perfect for a two couple vacay. It was clean, didn’t notice any bugs like other reviews. We did stay in the off season though so that might affect some of the issues that other vacationers had. Overall it was a pleasant stay :)
Courtney H. | Feb 2024
The stay was amazing, the service was quick and easy as well. The place was clean and had fast wifi as well as an amazing location. Very close to the beach, surrounded by many tourist attractions and gift shops. Overall an amazing experience!
