    Waking up to waves

    Great Location, yard needs major work

    Honestly this would be 5 stars except for one issue. The unit is listed as pet friendly but the entire yard is one big sticker patch. The dog got out of the car and was covered with stickers from head to toe. I went into the yard and I had stickers up to my knees. Otherwise great location, they need to look at some of details suck as kitchen utinsils and games because a lot are broken or missing pieces.

    Fall Beach Trip

    I had a great time at this property. The location is amazing and it was my second time to stay there. I would recommend this home and will be coming back again in the future.

    Great house, incredible location

    This house is perfect for families. The beach is steps away, and not crowded at all. The outdoor shower is perfect for rinsing the sand off before coming inside. The outdoor deck is great for meals. The detached third bedroom is like a treehouse for the kids. There were plenty of towels, which was really helpful. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals. There is only one full bath, which is no problem for a family of four, but may become difficult with the full nine guests. While the detached third bedroom was neat, during a nighttime thunderstorm it was a little bit difficult with smaller kids.

    Wonderful Beach Home

    My husband and 2 adult children spent almost a week at About the Beach. The view is beautiful and it was so nice that the beach was almost our front yard. The house had everything we needed. We hope to be back soon.

    Buyer beware

    Pros: on the beach, literally just yards away. Relatively quiet neighborhood. Great deck. Kitchen stocked pretty well with needed items. Lots of towels. Cons: well, it is on the beach so it was noisy late into the evening and again early in the morning with beach goers music- which can be heard inside the house. The house didn’t feel very clean and by all means don’t drop anything that can roll under the sofa! It’s filthy under there. The flooring is a mess ~ peel and stick linoleum…coming up. The yard hadn’t been mowed in a long time and was full of burrs which are sharp and painful so we couldn’t use the yard for us or to play with the dogs. We had to constantly cut the burrs from their hair. Such a disappointment. The grill was filthy and couldn’t use it either. Worst of all, the refrigerator didn’t work. We notified the management company right away but they didn’t bother to check back so we called the following day and they sent a serviceman out who then advised them that it couldn’t be fixed. (He left the door ajar when he left and anyone could have come inside!) Now one would think they would bring a new fridge, we still had two more days rental, but they didn’t. We had to throw a lot of food away. It was very frustrating!! Now they did credit us a few hundred dollars, but our Wednesday-Sunday rental price wasn’t worth what we paid, even with a credit. Buyer beware!

    Close to beach but pretty basic

    First, let me say I have rented many many times in the Galveston /Sea Isle area. I think the home needs a lot of work & updating for the price. The tall grass was finally mowed on the 4th. Day of our stay. Public parking in front of the home is not ideal. People living on The beach in a tent is a little sketchy. Floor plan is not ideal setup since there is 1 shower in the main section of the home and the 3rd. bedroom is only accessible thru outdoor stairs.

    Wonderful Stay!!

    This little house is perfect for a relaxing getaway. Everything was so cute and loved the attention to detail in the decor. It's right on the beach with a great view from the sturdy deck. The little room upstairs is adorable. Some things are slightly dated (broken blinds, leaking dishwasher) but it was a comfortable/safe place - everything was very clean. The property manager was very helpful and responsive. Note: the locks are REALLY hard to open. Remember to bring your own salt/pepper and Kleenex!
