Reviewer Comments:
This house is gorgeous. As a couple who loves historic homes with character and interesting stories, this was the perfect place to surprise my husband for our 5th wedding anniversary. We hosted friends and family and it was amazing. My only complaint is it could definitely use some cleaning. Walls, baseboards, and some curtains were not very clean. Maybe a cleaning service should be hired. With that said, I would definitely have rented the house again knowing what I know. It wasn't a huge deal, but it could be improved upon. My husband said I did a great job, and our guests did not want to leave. It was a wonderful weekend that we will never forget. I would highly recommend this house to anyone. It is something different than just another beach house, though it's not far from the beach. We will be back, for sure. Our family would like to make it a yearly thing. :)

This is the second time our (very big) group has stayed here. We love this place - enough nooks and crannies for people to spread out, but great outdoor and public room space for coming together. The house is old and comes with it's charming quirks. Billie at the House Company is wonderful!

My family rented Sealy Hutchings for my entire family to stay at during my sisters wedding weekend in Galveston. This place is amazing and gorgeous! It is so big and very well kept. Everything was clean and ready for our arrival. The yard is huge and was perfect for my dogs that were able to stay here. It was perfect for my nieces and nephews as well. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a place for a large amount of people and who appreciate the old historical houses in Galveston. .

DISAPPOINTING STAY

Reviewer Comments:
First impression of the property was disappointing, grounds quite unkept and the house looked tired. Stepping in and overall the house looks grand. However, the mold throughout the walls was not mentioned to us and was very off-putting and created a musty odour. The rules state that the BBQ should be cleaned by every guest and this BBQ had not been cleaned for a long time. There is a wifi modem but no code for guests and The House Company couldn't provide details. Biggest issue was no hot water on the third level. We picked this house for it's size and sleeping capacity and seven people on level 3 couldn't use their bathroom. The House Comoany's response? "well at least there are 3 other bathrooms to use." Not the point! The house seemed quite dirty as well, not sure whether it had been cleaned before our arrival. A great old house in a great location but it just isn't being looked after properly.
