Why Amanda chose Texas Gulf Coast

This property is great for families that want to enjoy the luxury of having the pool and the beach within steps of your door. The pool is heated in the winter and has a baby pool for the little ones. Plenty of chairs and tables surround the area and a king-sized grilling hub is located right beside it!

Not "quite" as promised

  • 3 of 5

The condo IS right out the back door! Had a wonderful time once things were in place after a rocky start. Promised an early check in. It wasn't ready. Cleaning lady was there and said she hadn't put it on her calendar. There were 2 wash cloths for 6 people. I think, not for sure, 4 bath towels. The coded lock wouldn't open at first. Amanda gave us another code. I was able to get in after waiting outside with groceries (some cold) for around 5+ min. That's a long time when it's over 90 degrees. Electrical issues with a one bathroom's power being tripped when the other one was in use. At times the living room power outlet didn't work. We needed it to charge phones etc. and use the lamp. Bedroom with the bunk beds had a ceiling fan but didn't have light bulbs in the area where the globe would be. There was a light that shone on the ceiling so that we could see in the room. The globe was on top of the cabinet in the room. The silverware drawer wouldn't open without "falling" back into the cabinet. Dusty vents. Needs upgrading. NOTE: Amanda came by met me and reset the door code. She later delivered new bath towels, washcloths and hand towels. Very apologetic. She is not the owner but manages this condo. This is privately cleaned and managed. All but 3 condos are cleaned and maintained by the onsite staff just like a hotel. Keep that in mind when you book this place. Overall it ended up being a fun girl's weekend. The closeness to the beach is it's best asset though.

Pictures do not do this unit justice.

  • 5 of 5

You are less than 100 feet from the waves. It is so much easier walking a few steps than loading up your vehicle and driving. The section of beach in front of the complex does not allow vehicles, so that's one less thing you have to worry about if you have kids. The pictures probably need to be updated since the unit has been upgraded since we last stayed here in 2014. Too many pros to list.

There are a couple of cons. The biggest one for us is the lack of a washer and dryer in the unit itself although the complex does have a laundry room you can use that takes quarters. Also, and this might only apply to my spoiled children and their smartphones, there are not very many outlets for recharging, although I solved this issue with a few cheap extension cords.

I have already been asked by my kids to book it again for next year, which is probably the highest compliment I can pay it.

Will came back!

  • 4 of 5

Amanda - we had a great time. I don't leave reviews, but this was a great experience. Family oriented and beach was not crowded because of the bars (card can't get through)

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We certainly enjoyed our stay at Island House. Amanda was very helpful. Well stocked kitchen and bathrooms. Even beach towels. Condo seemed a little sandy upon arrival. Beds were good. So overall very good experience we would rent again.
