About George Adkins

We have lived in the Houston area for 20+ years and have always enjoyed visiting Galveston for family fun. In the fall of 2014 we purchased this as our family retreat and we are glad to share it with other responsible families and friends.

George Adkins purchased this townhome in 2014

Why George Adkins chose Galveston

This home is only steps from the beach in a quiet, uncrowded area. Yet is is only 15 minutes from the major attractions that Galveston offers. It is also conveniently located a short walk from the local grocery store, restaurant, and watering hole.

What makes this townhome unique

Friendly locals, clean beach, you can drive here and never get in the car again.

Great house for several families!

We traveled from Colorado with two other families for a gymnastics meet. Great house and enough space for us all. Owners are very responsive and easy to work with. Tons of fun beach stuff and easy access to the beach. Water and weather were perfect!! Thank you again!!

Horrible Dirty Experience

  • 1 of 5

Flooring, bedding, and bathrooms in the entire property were dirty. Had to wash bedding and sweep floors which did not seem to help. Owner was non-responsive to all questions except to inquire about his HVAC that was recently replaced. Sent a contractor to repair without notifying us someone was coming. Appliances were dated and water pressure and heating/cooling for showers were horrible. Fridge was full of half eaten items from other renters. Master closet was full of owners items and no room to unpack. Only thing nice in the property is the counter tops and backsplash as seen in photos. Never coming back.

Great Time

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic, quiet place. It gets you away from all the hustle and bustle from the island, but isn't too far away. We had a great time and the place was clean and nice.
