This is the top floor of a house that has been redone into an apartment, and they did an amazing job. The rental was clean, very comfortable, and in a great location; walking distance to the beach and good food. The decor makes you feel right at home, and everything you need is there. I was worried about privacy being right on top of someone, but it was not an issue at all. The best part of this rental was Chris and Ruth. I have rented through companies in Galveston before and was unable to reach any one when needed. I received a text or call each day just to see if we needed anything. This place is an amazing value, and we will be back soon.
We loved how comfortable and clean this rental apartment is. Ruth & Chris have it fully stocked and all you have to do is relax! It's nice to have a little space for everyone to "get away" if needed,rather than being all stuck together in a hotel room. We loved having a kitchen so we could cook our breakfasts and lunches in, and then go out to dinner. The location is excellent; easy walk to the beach but also in a nice quiet neighborhood. We would stay here again and encourage our friends and family to do so as well.
What impressed us most was the open line of communication that we had with Chris and Ruth the entire time. Booking - After we got home. The house was spectacular. You could tell that they had put a lot of time into their house. Everything you could need was there for your use, clean, and ready to use. They had thought of it all...down to a beach radio, chairs, coolers...etc. Inside the home were plenty of linens, kitchenware, and the house was very quiet! Location is great! My husband and me walked to the beach every morning and collected seashells and drift wood. Their food recommendations in their coffeetable book were spot on too! and many within walking distance, except the Strand..which had great shops and eating too! Parking at the beach was scarce but was only $1 an hour. I titled this "inspiring" b/c my husband and me are actually looking at realestate agents to possibly do the same thing OR just have a beach home. We loved Galveston Island!! Thank you Ruth and Chris!!
