Very nice beach house just a few minutes walk to the beach!!

  • 5 of 5

This home was very nice with so many amenities it really felt like home. The kitchen is nicely equipped so you can make home cooked meals just like at your own home. Spring break is a little crazy in Galveston and the wait to eat can take an hour plus. Pirates Beach is very exclusive and they have their own private beach. This was awesome and gives you privacy when you go down to enjoy the day. Don’t worry about bringing chairs or beach toys from home ... the garage is stocked with plenty of things for you to use. There is a nice washer and dryer so you can refresh your beach towels. Settle in at night and enjoy movie night watching the huge Samsung TV with a great signal and Xifinity cable. Such a beautiful peaceful vacation.

Great fun was had by all!!

The beach house was wonderful, clean, close to the beach, and large enough for my daughter's family, son's family and ofcourse Grams and PaPa. Just a wonderful relaxing time for the great fellowship with children and grandchildren. Would highly recommend!!

Great for a family beach vacation

  • 4 of 5

Great house. Very short walk to one of the nicer, quieter beaches on the island, short drive to town. We were on a family vacation, so we loved the garage full of beach toys and things to play with. Plenty of room for our crew of 10; very comfortable, loved the master bedroom, outdoor shower, big dining room table, good kitchen and W/D, updated appliances and space to spread out. The ground-floor bunkhouse with TV was a hit (but it's detached from the house, so better for older kids). Wi-Fi worked great (a must for unexpected job emergencies that popped up). For us, the only thing missing was an in-subdivision pool that we could walk to, but the country club pool pass was a substitute (a short drive away and $5 pp). This is a quiet neighborhood, so better for families than an all-adult crew, if you stay up late. Pro tip: Mario's pizza delivers if you don't catch anything :)

Great place for my whole family to stay.

  • 5 of 5

The house was great, clean and the owners were so easy to work with. We had our 4 grandkids ages 5, 4 and 2-2 year olds and they loved it. We could walk to the beach with beach toys and cooler with no problem. The beach is away from all the crowded beaches and it was great for the kids and the adults. We took the kiddos bikes but they had bikes for the adults and we were on cul de sac and the kids rode around and there was no traffic at all. Great experience, got our deposit back quickly and will definitely go back. Highly recommend.

Family Reunion at Sunny Daze

  • 5 of 5

First and foremost let me say that Sun and Bob McDonald were exceptionally courteous and helpful in letting us stay at their wonderful home only a block from the beach! We thank them for sharing their home with us.

All features of the home were in excellent condition, clean and useful, with only a short delay in repairing our grand children's bedroom AC unit. We trust we vacated the home in the prescribed manner.

If all goes well, we sincerely hope to rent this same home again.

Best regards,

Pete Gaskin

Great place and location!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this for 8 people for a 4 night stay. The location is terrific, just a quick walk or golf cart ride for about 150 yards to the beach. Very clean and nice. I would say to rent the golf carts from the owners, as you can transport your beach stuff down the street easily, and also take them to the convenience store, seafood market and Galveston CC pool/golf course. The amenities are well worth it. Beach is easy to access and not crowded at all. They have a grill, shrimp boil pot, sand toys and everything you need to have a great time. Owners are great to deal with as well. I highly recommend this place, as it is a perfect location with everything you need to have fun!! Pirates Beach is a great spot as well.
