First of all, Yolanda was extremely attentive, and responded quickly to anything we needed, without being intrusive. A very pleasant person to interact with while booking and during our stay! The location is perfect. If you desire a quieter part of the island, this is perfect. It's a very close walk to the beach and we were basically the only ones on it, which was very cool. The condo is very spacious and we had plenty of room for the 6 of us. Very beautifully decorated, and an awesome view with lots of windows. The tv's had lots of channels available, which was nice when it was raining outside. The balconies were really nice and spacious. One of my favorite things about it was how clean it was. I'm a veteran traveler to Galveston, and one of our biggest issues is the cleanliness of the rooms. Even the nooks and crannies in this place were tidy. My ONLY complaint, if you can even call it that, is that maybe some of the bigger pans in the kitchen need to be replaced, as they have seen better days it seems lol. But other than that, there were plenty of towels, washcloths, tableware, dishes etc...everything you could need for a getaway! We will definitely be back, absolutely loved it!! Thank you for everything Yolanda!
Things we loved:
Great location on Jamaica beach, our favorite on the island, and away from public beach access
Easy walk to the beach, Nate's, or the store
3 full bathrooms with plenty of hot water after the beach
The house was poorly cleaned. Lots of sand and even trash under beds and behind chairs. The toddler was the one who discovered most of the trash. Yuck. Bring your own Clorox wipes.
The house is like going to Grandma's - tons of knick-knacks over useful counter space and old appliances that take some figuring out and only work sometimes.
The towels are all mismatched, bleach-stained, and many have holes. Felt like they came from a garage sale.
During our stay, we were asked to let in service men to do maintenance on the storm shutters (we declined) and I was emailed twice being asked to test one of the shutters. The porch was being painted so one afternoon we had a stranger staring in the window while we ate lunch. We didn't appreciate our vacation being interrupted with maintenance.
Overall, it was a good experience, mostly because our time was mainly spent at the beach, but in the future I would choose a different house in that location
