This was our second trip to Sunset Paradise and it proved its character as STILL being an excellent place to rent. It is one of the better maintained rentals in the area and has everything you want and need. The blooming plants/shrubs as well as the towering palms make this a very scenic place to be. We had a lot of wind while there and the wind whipping through the palms was extremely relaxing. My sons and grandsons had another experience they will remember for some time. Fishing was again excellent with the boat launch close by. However, we spent most of our time fishing from the dock at the house. At night, we were entertained by very large trout and red fish swimming through the night/green light just off the dock. Groceries and bait are very close as well as the city of Galveston. All in all, a very pleasant place to stay. The owners, Julie and Mike, were extremely helpful and remain top notch hosts! We WILL be back!

“Excellent Memorial Day weekend”
Reviewed 9 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Hi Julie & Mike,

This is for our stay at your home during the Memorial Day weekend in May 2014. We had a fabulous time and house was just perfect for our friends and me. The view of the water sitting on the picnic bench during dinner is unforgettable. We were 4 so it was the perfect home (Clean and cozy). I have stayed at other rentals before but this was by far the best. I had been to Galveston before but never ventured as far as Jamaica Beach, as this was the first time I really liked it and would definitely consider coming back next year with family. Thank you soo much for your wonderful hospitality and sharing your home with us.

Regards
Arjun

“Nice house”
Reviewed 28 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Enjoyed our stay here-we have rented quite a few beach houses over the years- for the price we should have been ooohing and aahhing soon as we walked in. Had 4 adults and 2 kids. Master bed is maybe a double size- very comfortable though. Downstairs bunk. Was enjoyed by the 4 year old... But I felt bad for her daddy who slept on bottom bed, it only had small lumpy 3 inch pad on wood base, did find another pad under the bed and put on but didn't help much, said he thought whole thing was going to give away. Would be good place for one couple to get away, with 2 others for the 2nd bedroom upstairs. Ac didn't cool downstairs bedroom, we were lucky to hit the cooler weather for that problem. Wouldn't recommend if you have kids <4, we had 18 month old- and I guess no place would be good for that age so I'll leave that alone. Decks were nice/ was very peaceful, neighbors arm length away but they had awesome homes! The home had "dog odor" some places you could tell the odor was stronger, but. Julie was great with getting in touch and answering questions. Overall was ok but I think worth maybe half of what we paid.

Management Response
28 Apr 2014
All of our reviews have been outstanding and I am quite surprised at the negative feedback presented in this review. The A/C downstairs works perfectly, not sure what your issue was. Have not heard complaints about dog odors either. When we visit, it only smells clean and again, have not ever had this complaint. While we haven't ever had complaints about it, we appreciate your feedback about the bed. We will be replacing it this weekend. We apologize that you did not find our home perfect for you because our over 30 guests have all oohed and aahhed. Just curious why you guys asked us if we were interested in selling?
