Awesome bayhouse!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is literally a slice of paradise!! Awesome location right on the bay with a large dock that we hung out on and fished for hours. Very comfortable beds and plenty of bedrooms for our family as well as a large living area to gather together. Balconies facing the sunset were a great place to end the days. Highly recommend!!!

Great Location, Great Host.

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a family reunion with 16 people and it's definitely large enough for our group. The combined kitchen, living and dining room provides a big and inviting space for a large group. The two air conditioners are brand new and blow ice cold air in August weather! All the bedrooms and bathrooms are in good shape. There are some very minor issues but they're all offset by a great location and a great host. The house faces the wide open bay with a beautiful sunset view unlike those crowded canal homes. The real value to me this past weekend was what I learned from Sam, the property manager who lives next door. Sam is a super knowledgeable and hospitable guy. He explained to us the area, showed us how to fish and took care of every need we had. Thank you Sam! It's not a cheap house for us to rent but we hope to be able to come back next year because it's certainly worth it.

Tips: Do take advantage of Terramar beach and the community swimming pool. There were hardly anyone around so you can have it all to your group. And use insect repellent if you plan to fish at the house. I did not use it the first night and paid for it dearly LOL.

Family reunion in Galveston

  • 3 of 5

My two brothers and I each rented a VRBO home for our individual families for a four day reunion. Unfortunately my unit was far inferior to both of my brothers homes who paid less and received so much more.

Our unit was clean and large enough for the 8 adults and 8 children that occupied the home. The home is not well maintained, bathroom doors do not lock, Commodes were constantly running which we could fix but why do we have to? The worst issue; to make the disposal work we had to open the sink cab doors and plug an extension cord, which was attached to the disposal, above the sink into an outlet, very dangerous! The house was very sterile, and the décor reminded me of a cheap motel. The home had decks with no deck furniture, the kitchen is very poorly equipped. Compared to my brothers rentals ours was very substandard and we paid more for our unit. Needless to say nobody spent time at our unit. I would not recommend this property to anyone.

Amazingly beautiful home.
