    a guest from Alvin, TX recommends this vacation rental

    It was an overall wonderful experience. After a little difficulty finding the house (neighbors in community were friendly and helpful with directions) due to some Google maps misdirection, check-in and check-out was a breeze. The beach house is quaint, cool (A/C worked great with the 100 deg. heat index) and has an amazing amount of open entertainment and deck space. The breeze off the Gulf in the afternoon and early mornings was magical, especially considering the hot tempt.s. The location of the house is perfect; just close enough to the beach for wonderful views and people watching, but far enough away for peace and privacy. While the property could use a little TLC (paint patch and deck renovations) it feels lived-in, but in a very positive way and exceeded all our needs. The only disappointment was the BBQ pit, that was literally on its last leg, causing us to rely on the stove and indoor cooking when we had planned to cook outdoors all weekend. The kitchen was fully stocked with the necessary utensils though which made it possible and kept us fed. I highly recommend the Alsup House, just bring your own pit.

    Kenny S from Arlington, TX recommends this vacation rental

    We had a great family vacation. The Alsup house was nice, clean, with a large living area open to the kitchen. We had 8 people staying there and there was plenty room, seating, and good sleeping arrangements. And just a short walk to the beach. We like the far west end of Galveston away from the touristy areas and crowded beaches, but close enough to drive in for shopping.
    The only thing missing for us was outdoor storage to put our beach chairs, shade tents, coolers. There was a small storage room outside but it was locked, as were the pantry in the kitchen and the closet in the room with the bunk beds. Made for a little bit of clutter.

    Camilla L from Beeville, Texas recommends this vacation rental

    The house was in a good location to walk to the beach and the drive to Galveston was about 15 minutes. The house met our needs. It was a little dirty when we got there. Not sure what was on the floor but it was more than sand. The master bedroom was a good size room unfortunately the bed was very uncomfortable. Needs a new mattress. One of the smaller room's closet was locked and could not be used for storage. This caused a problem with luggage having to be piled up in the corner. The kitchen was fully stocked for dining and cooking. Unfortunately the TV box in the living room went out on the third day we were there and was not repaired while we were there. The outdoor shower was useful for cleaning up after the day at the beach. My whole family sat out on the deck each night and visited till late in the evening. We enjoyed our stay and we will probably vacation at Jamaica Beach next summer.

    Overall, enjoyed it very much. 2nd year to rent this house. Reported left side sliding door very hard to open and close.Repairman did come look at it but had to order new rollers.Reported house does move slightly from side to side. Repairman for door said it may be anchor bolts but also that some of the pier type homes were built with some free motion to try to prevent hurricane damage in the event of a hurricane. My family enjoys this house and location very much.

    Great location. Short walk to the beach. Lots of local places to eat and buy supplies. I missed my gas grill but the little charcoal one did the job. This house has everything you need and fit the whole family great. Outside shower and 2 bathrooms is a must with a big group of people. Only 10 minutes from the Seawall but miles away from the big crowds. We will be coming back for sure.

    Betty W from Mahomet, IL recommends this vacation rental

    Our six weeks at the Alsop house this year was about the same as the previous 4-5 winter months. The house is generally in good shape having been repainted and new floors after the hurricane 2-3 years ago. It's located in the second row of beach houses in Jamaica Beach, about 10 mi south of the city of Galveston. The only negative regarding the house is the relatively poor lighting in the kitchen and living room. We have brought floor lamps with us for comfortable reading in the living room. The cable TV system offered has several hundred stations, quite sufficient for a variety of viewing.

    The House Company has been very accommodating when problems have popped up during our past stays.

    Galveston is an interesting town, with over 100 yrs history, some rather spectacular. The 1900 hurricane is well documented in the city as well as explaining the method used to raise the level of much of the northern island some 30 feet after the 1900 hurricane.

    Of course, there is great availability of sea food, fresh and in restaurants.

    We've been surprised that relatively few tourists are about the city during winter months. The winter climate is not generally "hot" by any stretch of the imagination, but is 20-30 degrees warmer than any northern US state, which is a real plus. The typical coastal weather, i.e., fog and cloud cover and showers, is there and offfers a different variety not generally experienced in more continental sites.

    We hope to use our "southern escape" again in the future.

    a guest from Jacksonville, Texas recommends this vacation rental

    We enjoyed our stay at the alsup house, the location was a little far out from the main city but peaceful and less crowded, the front door was frustrating very hard to open and close kept sticking so we used the other door, the umbrella on the deck was broken, the dishwasher was broken and when i tried to wash the dishes water leaked out all over the floor plus there was no dishwashing liquid. But the beach was great and beautiful even with the heavy winds and rain. we will keep vacation rental homes with this company in mind for our next vacation but i have to say making guests supply their own toilet paper and paper towels seems a bit rude and cheap.

We stripped the beds initially and neatly folded all sheets and stacked them with the unused towels in the Master and the other two bedrooms. Please make sure that I receive a credit for the linen charge

    Wonderful stay in Feb/Mar 2008, particularly coming from wintery Illiois. Somewhat surprised that more 'northerners' weren't enjoying Galveston's weather, culture, history and seafood. House Co staff most helpful. House in good shape, sufficient for 6 people, close to good Gulf beach, 15 min to Galveston and 1 hr to Houston.
