    -- THE PROPERTY --

An open-air area below the house is great for family reunions and other events, and the large yard is ideal for volleyball or other fun outdoor activities. For your convenience, this home also includes a charcoal grill, wireless internet access, and laundry facilities.

    -- THE LOCATION --

    From this house, the best of Galveston is practically right at your fingertips! Enjoy the island's white sand beaches during the day as the gentle waves of the Gulf crash onto the shore.

    This house was perfect for the 7 of us! A lot of cookware and beach stuff like canopy, chairs, etc. No beach towels tho. There's a ton of beds too. It's right off Jamaica beach and it's pretty private. About 25ish miles away from historic district but the drive is really nice. The house was so cute and comfy

    First family vacation!

    Reviewed by: SARA F. on

    Comment:

    This was the first time we took our whole family on vacation and we had two adults and three kids ranging from 3-13. We loved the spacious and clean house, the ample seating areas outside, the large and airy bedrooms, and the privacy. My kids loved the dance floor outside (though there was some evidence of previous merrymaking gone awry in the form of dried vomit in one area) and we had a dance party. I loved the two porches, and shifted my lounging depending on where the breeze was. Our only complaints were that not all of the light fixtures were functional and we had to improvise on our first night when we cooked in the house and didn't have any oven mitts to get the food out of the oven.

    This was a great house. It was clean and had plenty of room for our group of 3 adults and 4 kids. It is close to the beach and away from the crowds in town...but not too far. We went into town almost every evening for dinner. The owner was very nice and helpful. I would definitely recommend this house. Our only complaint would be that the 2 queen beds were not the most comfortable. If the beds were better it would have been 5 stars. Overall, it was a great place to stay.

It is across the street from beach access but also only about 4-5 miles from Freeport which we enjoyed the beach area there more. I would for sure stay here again

    We had guests in for a wedding and needed extra sleeping accommodations. This house was a good comfortable and economical choice. Plenty of living space including patio space under the house and lots of extra parking and outdoor play space on big open lot. A little further from the beach than expected but still an easy enough walk.

    We came to Galveston for my great grandma's 105th bday/ family reunion. We had nine people and were so comfortable. It was so clean and close to the beach and bay. Bring food because it's a bit of a drive to the nearest restaurant but there is a charcoal bbq and all the cooking utensils you could need. We will definitely be back.*This review was originally posted on AirBnb for a stay in Aug-16

The yard and decks were great.

    We enjoyed our stay at the house in Bar Harbor very much. My two sisters and I take our granddaughters on vacation every year and are always looking for a good place to go. This was our favorite house so far - since it was airy, well decorated and comfortable. We loved sitting on the porch every morning with our breakfast drinks and enjoying the breeze. It is a few minutes away from the seawall, but we enjoyed the space surrounding the house. The beach is easy to get to and the girls enjoyed it immensely.

    Lots of good things about this property; but, the great things are the management, size, and location (quieter West end)! My family(2 adults /4kids) stayed here through Tropical Storm Bill (�~�)bad timing, I know. Sallye and Matt were extremely helpful making sure we "inlanders"were safe and comfy. Large lot, plenty of room inside and out. Super clean and well maintained! Bright and cheery, nicely appointed rooms, kitchen, and all working appliances (Yay!) Loved the outdoor showers for rinsing after the fun days at the beach. (Nice beach just a short walk down the block) Convenient well stocked grocery a couple miles down road on the right (Nate's). Fantastic for families! We loved eating on the spacious porches and were never bored. Bring bug spray and sun screen ... then just Enjoy!

    Upon arriving we were a little disappointed that the lawn hadn't been cut and th grass was about 16" long. We also noticed that the house could've been cleaned a little better. I called to mention these things and they knew they had to schedule the mowing crew to come and as for the cleaning asked if they should send them back to the house. We had just been in a car for 19 straight hours so the last thing I wanted was to watch them clean again. She said she would let them know to do a better job next time. As for the house itself, it is a great place. Very roomy and worked well for our 5 adults and 3 kids under 3 years old. The house is down the street from the beach which was nice. The worse part would be the Mosquitos. I would recommend having bug spray on at all times. The house had everything we needed including showers outside which were great! Overall, I would definitely stay there again. Thank you for a great vacation!
