    We have a family of 5 that stayed over the Labor Day weekend at this fabulous beach side retreat and found everything very nicely situated to enjoy time on the beach and/or on one of the several decks in the condo. We appreciated Mary reaching out both before our arrival and a courtesy text after our arrival to ensure that all was going great - and it was. Thanks for the opportunity to share in your delightful condo by the beach! 08 September 2016 - 02:32:00

    The location was great. The house was nice. Early check in and late checkout was no problem. The property is in need of some attention. Although it is very nicely decorated we had some issues with the air conditioning cooling the bedrooms . The door to our balcony from our bedroom would not open. The Tv in the Master bedroom did not work and there was no TV in the alternate bedroom. All in all we enjoyed our stay. 07 December 2016 - 11:40:00

    Mary's rental was perfect. The area is not too busy and the townhome gave us plenty of space to relax and rejuvenate. We loved the hot tub and being so close to the beach! Kitchen had everything we needed to eat in if we wanted too and yet the townhouse was close to restaurants for going out too! We could not be more pleased with our selection in this rental. We will definitely be back. 17 June 2017 - 18:45:00

    We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home. Walking distance to the Beach which was very quite and not to many people. Air conditioner worked Great and the Beds were very comfortable, almost to comfortable to get out of. Mrs. Whitehead was very attentive and answered all questions we had. We would definetly reccommend staying here. We will be back soon. Thanks Again Mary 12 August 2017 - 16:32:00

    The home is beautiful and stocked with everything you could need or may have forgotten. 15 minutes away from Pleasure Pier. Far enough away to avoid Seawall crowds but close enough for convenience. Access to the private beach areas makes it all worth while; plenty of space without the overpopulation of the Seawall. Top it all off with three balconies to sit and enjoy the view from, perfection! Thank you Mary for a great vacation get away! 06 July 2017 - 17:47:00

    The condo was clean and inviting. Beautiful property, just like the photos. We had a relaxing weekend, close to the beach and restaurants. The hot tub was awesome. We will definitely stay again! 16 March 2017 - 15:17:00

    My husband and I rented the townhouse for a few days to celebrate our anniversary. We instantly found the place to be super clean and very stylish and quaint. The decor is high end and there are many amenities provided by the owner. This unit is unique because it has an extended balcony with a circular Jacuzzi hot tub! It was refreshing after a beautiful time at the well groomed Karankawa beach. The locals are very friendly and helpful, pointing out the Beach Access as we walked a short distance to the shore. We were able to set up our pop-up canopy, chairs, and castle building gear for the grandchildren without worries when we left for a lunch break. Inside the townhouse we enjoyed the large screen TV and comfortable furnishings. For the sunbathers, there is an upper deck close to the roof with two chaise loungers. This spot is also perfect for romantic star gazing on clear nights. The full moon over the ocean rivaled any I've seem on any Caribbean beaches. We highly recommend this jewel by the sea to any vacationer. 25 July 2016 - 14:51:20

    We are a camping family and normally spend all of our vacations that way. This year we decided on something different before our son leaves for college. This owner was superb! She was available for any and all questions. She helped us out tremendously! Loved the location as it is away from all the busy areas. Not far to all tourist attractions. Very private. Loved the short walk to the private beach. The beach was beautiful! Very quiet neighborhood. Great recommendations for eating in the handbook. Neighbors were very friendly and helpful as well. Just could not speak more highly of our experience. We would definitely book with this owner again. You just could not get a better owner to work with. I wish her the best with this property. 15 August 2016 - 20:30:02

    We wanted a relaxing type of beach vacation getaway, where it felt like we owned the place type thing. Not an area overrun with tourists and hard-to-find beach space. I saw the Pirates Cove area many years ago, and decided to look into it as our answer. The area has grown so much, but still had to make some decisions on size and location. With only 3 of us this first time (we want to make it an annual tradition with other friends and family), it led us to this perfect match of a townhouse. It was also the only property with a hot tub on the deck, and even though it's hot weather, we kept it at the 93-95 degrees at the most, it was perfect in the evenings. Beautifully decorated, relaxing and comfortable. The beach access was just 1 street away. The shallow surf with waves breaking continually does make it hard to swim all along this coastline. But it was great for the beach itself, and our son was able to fish right from the beach area - needed the larger poles/line for bigger fish, but caught a few small ones. (No need to have a license if you are under 17) You can get the special sand spike weights and bait fish line hookup, to easily add to your fishing line, from the little stores nearby. You can go crab catching at night, or bring yourself some crab traps with a floater/marker. We didn't see the little storage room downstairs until the day before last, so I want to point out that she has a wagon in there for your beach stuff, beach chairs, etc. Just fyi, can't access the beach with golf carts from this access point, and you can't take them on the road. You have to have a frontage road for them. Because of this you can't rent the golf carts across the street. We had to have been staying in an area with a vehicle access, and the frontage road area for the golf carts to drive on, or have them deliver the golf cart to an area where we would be with access. We did not find this a negative not to have one, but I just wanted to point this out. If you have a hard time with stairs, this may not be the right property, but in general, most beach homes have lots of stairs I noticed that you have to deal with, because they are on stilts. 23 August 2016 - 17:02:10

    We really enjoyed our stay at this lovely home in Galveston. The dcor in this house is outstanding, very beachy, very nicely done, the beds are very comfortable and the location has it's own private beach that is very well maintained. The only reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 is because one of the showers was broken, the garbage disposal was broken, and the cookware left a lot to be desired. Otherwise, the property was great, and we would stay here again. Owner is very nice, and having only owned the property for a month, I'm certain she will make the needed repairs and invest in better cookware. 16 August 2016 - 01:39:00
