About Michelle Robach

We have several vacation homes on the TX Gulf Coast. We love to vacation in Galveston. The house has been remodeled with tasteful beach furnishings. This will be the first time it has been featured as a beach rental. We do own two others on the coast that have been on the rental program for years.

Michelle Robach purchased this house in 2014

Why Michelle Robach chose Texas Gulf Coast

We decided to buy in the city of Galveston. There is so much to do and we found ourselves always in Galveston enjoying everything it has to offer.

What makes this house unique

This home is short walk of 4 blocks to the beach and a few more to the new Pleasure Pier. Restaurants are located walking distance from the home. One of our favorite restaurants is Queens BBQ and it is 2 blocks to the house. The have the best Peach Cobbler.

Vintage Charm with Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The house is 2 blocks from the beach and was a perfect location for our 4th of July vacation. We parked our cars and brought our bikes. We did not have to deal with parking or driving the whole time we were there. We were super close to everything so we biked everywhere. The house is beautiful and just like the pictures. It is an older refurbished vintage home so it has all of that historical charm with the comfort of modern amenities. The owner, Michelle, was a joy to work with and goes out of her way to make your stay enjoyable. I would recommend this home to anyone thinking of staying on Galveston. I know my family would love to stay there again.

Enough Space for 2 Families

  • 4 of 5

We spent a long weekend here with another family - 4 adults, 3 kids and 1 dog in total. I was pleased that there was enough space for all of us to be comfortable and not always have to be together. The dining room table is huge which was really nice for a crowd. Ample seating in the living room. And the location relative to the Seawall is awesome! The kitchen is well stocked with plates, cups, cooking utensils, etc. Washer and dryer are both in good condition which is really helpful when you mix kids and the beach.

The owner, Michelle, was very attentive. We didn't have hot water our first night as the hurricane had flooded out the pilot light on the hot water heater. But she had it fixed within an hour of us letting her know.

One note is that the parking is street parking - room for 2 vehicles (an SUV and full-size truck in our case).

As for cons, know that there are stickers in the grass so definitely wear shoes (and check paws of any pets). A couple doors don't latch normally but use eyehole hooks instead. This is fine for privacy but not ideal for keeping sound away from sleeping kiddos. And finally, the internet was a bit inconsistent. Fine for doing whatever on a tablet but hit or miss for trying to stream movies.

Overall we were pleased and would consider this house for our next trip to Galveston.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I am however disappointed that you would fault the house for street parking, stickers in the grass and the hot water heater pilot light. That was due to a natural disaster that occurred. I had that fixed in less than an hour after you called me to tell me. The house does have eye hooks and yes not all doors are tight unless its a day without humidity and when you are at the beach surrounded by water, humidity is a constant thing. The house is over 100 years old and those kinds of things can happen. The doors can be fastened securely with the eye hooks.

Spacious house with great location

  • 4 of 5

House was very clean and nice. Close enough to walk to beach and restaurants. Living and dining area are very large. Outside balcony and patio are awesome! Only downside was master shower is a claw foot tub with a shower curtain around it. Hard to shower with curtain always sticking to you. Also, no locks on any of the 3 bathrooms.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. The house is over 100 years old and the claw foot tub is original to the home. We have tried to keep everything we could during the remodel that was original. This house is truly a galveston historic gem. The door knobs are original glass knobs. The property manager has installed hook and eye locks. I'm sorry you felt those older historic items were enough to not give this house a 5 star review.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! 4 stars instead of a 5 star because of a difficult TV remote.....??? I'm glad everything else was great for your beach vacation. Nothing I can do about technology. You could always call Xfinity and let them know about the difficulties you had when trying to operate the TV remote. We do leave the manual for remote operation in the table next to the TV.
