Perfect Distance to the Beach
My family and I stayed here a couple of weeks ago. We loved the house! It is old, so it does have an old home smell to it, which did not bother us. I love the smell of old, historic homes. The beds were nice and the home was very clean. There are stairs that lead up to the front door and stairs down to the back yard. This would not be very handy for a person with mobility issues. It really is very close to the beach, as well as Benno's. We thought it might be a hassle to fight traffic to cross the highway to the beach, but it wasn't. The beach gear was locked and it took two days before we were contacted about where the key was. By then we had already bought some bag chairs. I feel like the key should be left out with a note. We were only there three days to begin with. Buying the chairs didn't wreck our budget, but it might someone else's. Also, the trash bin in the backyard was full, with a bag of trash on the ground next to it. We chose not to carry our two bags of trash down the stairs to leave it on the ground with the other trash, so it was left bagged in the laundry room. Sorry about that, cleaning ladies! If the bin would have been empty, I promise that's where we would have taken it. My family and I would absolutely recommend this property and if we ever come back to Galveston, we will try to stay here. We ate at Benno's. By the way, don't get mad at Benno's if the line is long to order. It's not always like that, so come back another day at a different time. It's good eating! We also ate at Cajun Greek, Mario's Seawall Italian, Original Mexican Café, and Henry's Mexican Restaurant. I would recommend all of these places! We went to Moody Gardens and loved it. I've seen comments saying the aquarium was blah and took 5 minutes to get through, but that was not the case for us. Order your tickets online and save $5 a ticket. P.S. - don't let the Cascade pods they leave out fool you. There is no dishwasher! ; )

July Vacay
The house was very nice and overall 4.5 stars. Great location.. felt safe to walk the beach, down to the piers, places to eat. Quiet neighborhood. Only a few downs: 1 roll of TP.. had to go buy more, No gril, yard was not mowed or in shape to use...lots of sand burs.. definitely enough room for an amazing back yard but looks like they have not gotten that far along yet.

We appreciate you taking the time to leave this review and are thrilled that you enjoyed your vacation at our beautiful home. We stock each home with what is called a "starter supply" of basic items. It is not designed to be an unlimited supply but, rather, to get a typical reservation through a weekend or get folks started so that they can enjoy their arrival days, take inventory, and pick up whatever else is needed to get them through their trip as needed. Prior to each stay, we stock dish soap, laundry detergent, a roll of paper towels, toilet paper, a dish brush to wash dishes, a few trash bags, dishwasher detergent, bar soap, and the standard bathroom amenities you might find in a hotel. If the future if you feel that this starter supply wasn’t correctly stocked you can always reach out to us 24/7 through our guest support line. We are working to ensure that the backyard and promised amenities are clean and ready for guest use in the future. Thanks again for your feedback. We hope to see you again! -The TurnKey VR Team

Beautiful Old Galveston House Close to the Beach
This older home is very well decorated and furnished.

We are a family of 5 and there were adequate beds since the couches make out into double beds, a luxury we do not always get with some rentals.

The one bath when you are used to a 2.5 bath house was an adjustment, and that is also the one reason why my husband probably would not rent the house again - if we had another equal choice with more than one bath.

The only beef that I had with the property management was that the house was not ready until 2 hours after the 3 pm check in time and we were not compensated in any way. We should have been given back a portion of that $165 cleaning fee in my opinion.

I do want to point out that there are several steps to get your luggage up with this house. It is not a house for people that can not climb steps well.

The parking is very narrow and tricky when you first drive up, especially if you have a low riding car.

The are many of the houses in this part of town that have been completely remodeled and appear to be used for rentals. There was one house directly across from this rental that was in need of painting etc, but the tenant appeared to be disabled elderly man. It felt to me like a very safe area for families. I had no fears about walking around after dark. I enjoyed my walk to the Pleasure Pier.

Lovely decorated historic home
This is a an older home in Galveston. The interior has been completely remodeled and decorated with wonderful pieces. The kitchen is furnished with pots and pan for cooking most dishes. It is a short walk to the beach. I enjoyed walking down to Pleasure Pier. The internet was fast enough for me work. I would give a 5 stars, but when we arrived at the house at 4:30 pm and hour and half after the check in time the units was still being cleaned and we were told to return in 30 minutes. Our rental time was shorten and no compensation was given. We were not allowed to stay later or given credit for the time.

A spacious vintage house a block to the beach!!!
We loved that we were a 1 block, 2 minute stroll to the beach!! The house was clean & spacious with lots of turn of the century charm and had everything we needed including board games and beach accessories. Amazing find for the low price! Quiet, low traffic, safe neighborhood but only 5-10 min drive to grocery stores, restaurants, and fun Galveston attractions! And Turnkey quickly solved our door lock issues on arrival with a simple phone call. The only minor drawback was sharing one bathroom for our family of 5. We would definitely book with Turnkey again!

Love this place! The water was so blue!
Great place that is really convenient to the beach. Had a great porch with chairs to sit, relax, and listen to the waves. Had everything we needed for a nice beach getaway. The house was very roomy and clean. Enjoyed having board games to play with kids, reminded me of when I was a kid spending time with my family. We will book here again for future beach retreats!

Great Get-Away! Love listening to the waves
We Enjoyed our stay in this beautiful Historic home very much! Loved the front porch - sitting and enjoying the sound of waves crashing on the beach! Being a short walk to the beach was awesome! And, when we were back at the house, I loved that there was a safe place for the children to play in the large backyard. Everyone enjoyed being able to play together just a few short way from the beach and on rainy afternoons plenty of room in the house and on the porch to enjoy the time.

Easy access to beach - quick walk
Lots of open space, great area hanging out (big living/dining area). Kitchen is well stocked. Lots of books and games for family time after beach day is over. Lots of space in the back yard for outdoor activities. You can sit on the front porch and see the beach. You can also hear the waves at night.
