Spacious Rental
This house was the perfect rental for our family of four adults and two dogs. It is very spacious, and true to the pictures. The description of the house is very accurate, and the pictures don’t do the beautiful finishes justice. You can tell that a lot of love has been poured into the updates. Everything was very clean, and the kitchen was stocked with the necessities. The open floor plan makes this house seem much bigger than it actually is. The beds and couch are very comfortable. The double vanities and oversized shower make the bathroom seem huge. We really enjoyed hanging out downstairs in the garage and playing pool and darts, and our dogs loved being able to run around between the front and back yards and the deck upstairs (they love to people watch). The location of the house was perfect for walking to the beach, but we drove everywhere due to rain. Thankfully, Galveston had things to do that didn’t require perfect weather. Our main complaint about the house would be the lack of gutters. It rained literally every day of our trip. Because of the way the house is designed, the rainwater pours off the roof right over both staircases and even splashed into the house when it was really windy. Even using umbrellas, this resulted in us getting soaked and having to change clothes a couple of times. The back yard also flooded with 3-4 inches of water, so we pretty much had to go down the front staircase and through the garage door to get downstairs. Also, be careful with the main gate. We had to keep our large SUV parked outside (because the rails on our roof rack barely wouldn’t fit in the garage), and we had to use a brick to keep the gate from potentially bumping the back of the vehicle. This probably wouldn’t have been a problem without the wind and rain. Our keypad entry lock battery died halfway through our trip, so we had to call TurnKey to come fix it. They sent someone out within an hour to maintenance the lock. It seemed like someone had previously tried to replace the battery themselves, and ended up causing the whole lock to fail and need to be replaced.

Great place to rent for your getaway!
My wife and I were very impressed with our stay at this property. It was everything that we could of imagined and more! It has a pool table in the garage downstairs for your entertainment please and four bicycles readily available if you and your family wanted to ride along the seawall. The property was very clean and with it being one block from the seawall, we didnt need to drive anywhere our entire stay. I would definitely recommend this beach house if you need a sime getaway.

Beautiful, clean and accommodating near Seawall
Our recent stay at Casa de Esperanza was perfect! The location is great and just a couple minute walk from the seawall and Pleasure Pier. Many of the popular bars and restaurants are close by and easy stroll to. You can easily get an uber to go to the Strand or other areas of the island. Regarding the house itself, aside from the perfect beachy look of it from the outside, when you first walk in the door you'll notice it is spotless and clean. I've stayed in expensive hotels that weren't as clean and organized as this house. The pictures on VRBO are exactly what the house looks like. I'm not sure the square footage is but it feels larger than it really is. We were never in each others way and always had plenty of space. The kitchen island was great for having snacks and drinks and talking amongst ourselves. The kitchen was also stocked with many common items you may have forgot or not thought about such as salt, pepper, corkscrew, bottle openers, plastic cups, etc. Since it is a 1 bathroom house, I was worried about the privacy of so many adults sharing, but the way the house is designed (you can see it in picture 5 on the site) the bathroom is at the back of the house by itself and not a jack-and-jill or connected to any of the bedrooms. It's also really spacious. We played pool downstairs one night and had cocktails on the patio enjoying the breeze. The only thing that we got confused on was that the welcome email with the door code didn't have the alarm code so we were scrambling through emails while the alarm went off until we found it. Other than that, the house was perfect, clean and accommodating. We only live an hour away in Houston, so I'm sure we will rent this house again. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family did.

Highly recommend this beautiful Beach House
My family and I enjoyed a wonderful weekend at this beautiful Beach House. Restaurants, entertainment and the beach were walking distance. House is not only beautiful but clean and well kept. Owners were super friendly and helpful, I would highly recommend to anyone for I know we will definitely be back.

Simply Beautiful!
This home is completely renovated inside and out. Love the location and the decor. Has lots of extras, pool table in a nice garage with tv. Patio in back for barbecue or reading a book. Nice quiet neighborhood with a park across the street. Beach is 2 block away. We loved our stay and will definitely be back!

Nice place but needs refinements at this price point
We were very impressed with the cleanliness of the place and overall had a great stay. Proximity to the park and sea wall was outstanding! All the basic amenities were brand new and in good working order--kitchen appliances, etc. However! At this price point, which is nearly $500/night with included fees, this place definitely needs some refinements and if I had reviewed this place immediately upon arrival, I would have barely given 3 stars. The alarm code was not included with all the other entry code emails and therefore could not be found in a hurry when it was needed. This was a frustrating start to our stay! Nevertheless, the management company was very helpful and responsive in getting it for us quickly. Secondly, the wifi password we were given did not work (even trying case variations and multiple devices). The management company just advised us to log into their wifi, not that of the place. The "cable" was only basic network channels and these came in fuzzy. This was disappointing as our hometown team was playing in the NCAA tournament our first night and our plan to watch the game was derailed. The games/movie cabinet was well-stocked with an impressive selection of DVDs, especially recent kids' movies, but we ended up playing musical chairs as the middle bedroom DVD player did not work/could not connect to the TV (we troubleshot this for maybe 15 minutes before giving up and moving to a different room). There was not ONE table lamp in the whole place, which meant that overhead lighting (or no lighting) was all that could be used right up until bed time. There were also not enough night tables (none in the master bedroom) and one + a chair in the second queen bedroom. The kitchen was moderately well-equipped, but if you're really planning to cook, it lacks a few things-- pizza cutter, vegetable peeler were the things we noticed and the knives were extremely dull. Nice place, could be better.

We planned our stay around the first weekend of Mardi Gras. We knew from the pictures the house would be nice, but had no idea how inviting it would be! Six of us stayed very comfortably. The weather wasn’t great, but we didn’t let that stop us. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool table and dart board in the garage. We didn’t cook, but the kitchen is well equipped to prepare any meal. The beds are comfy and each room, including the living spaces, are decorated beautifully…a beach theme throughout the house. Saving the best for last…the bathroom is amazing! I loved everything about it! The location of the house is perfect. We were able to walk to the seawall to watch the parade and even caught one during the day on 25th (I think that’s the correct street). We also walked over to Fishtales for dinner. I can’t say enough about the awesomeness of this house! The owners thought of everything! Truly a home away from home. We will definitely be back, hopefully soon and when the sun is shining! On a side note, the water pressure in the kitchen is VERY low and we did have an issue with the keyless entry.

Best Stay Ever!
I can honestly sat this was the best overall experience I have ever had with a rental property. The house and all amenities were more than adequate and you could tell that the owners had your interests and well being at heart. The location was perfect for access to the beach and all Mardi Gras activities along the seawall. One parade went right beside the house allowing us to sit on the balcony and watch from our porch.
Only drawback was the computerized lock on the front door. We had to call numerous times for a new code, but this didnt damper our stay. Will definitely stay here again!
