Excellent property for the price. Just be aware that the dishwasher does not work very well at all. We still had coffee rings in the bottom of the coffee cups and crumbs on plates. It works well for sterilizing if you hand wash everything. Also, the air conditioning unit is very loud, and is situated directly behind the television, making it very difficult to hear the television, even at near full volume, when the unit runs. There is also no space for food storage, especially for a weeks worth of food for a family. You will wind up using the storage cube next to the dining table and rearranging the pan cupboard for additional space. The location and price, however, cannot be beat.

Dishwasher never worked. Service came right out, but it was not fixed. Blender was broken. But they did let me know that they have small appliances on hand for replacements. The shower head in the bathroom is basically worthless. It’s a sprinkle of water. Took forever to rinse off. But there’s a great outdoor shower which is where we took all our showers. Beds are not the most comfortable, but it is overall a very nice place. Kitchen is well stocked, and you are one block from the beach and can see the water from the balcony. It was a nice place to stay.

Thanks for letting us know about the shower head - our Property Services team will get it taken care of! We are also following up with the service technician about the dishwasher to finalize the repair.

Adorable little house! Very nicely furnished and updated.

Our week at 5 O’clock Somewhere was perfect! The house is a short walking distance to the beach, is decorated beautifully and very clean. We’ll be staying here again!

Perfect size for 2 people and a dog!
- Marilyn H , Posted: 05/21/2019
Close to beach. Problem with disposal solved quickly. Only one shower if that would matter.
- Barbara R , Posted: 04/18/2019
The rental that I chose had a wonderful ocean view.
- Pearl L , Posted: 04/08/2019
The house is super cute. Great experience

We were very impressed by the cleanliness and how well it was decorated.

Pleasant beach view house. You can hear and see the beach.

A few years ago my daughter rented a house from Sand n Sea. When I was thinking about renting I immediately went to your website and checked out all the houses with what I was looking for. There were several that would have worked but there were four of us and the size we chose was perfect. It was affordable and the house was clean and neat. I think we are interested in renting again next year if it works out for us. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

This house was exactly like the pictures. It was the in the perfect spot and we could not have asked for better weather. We would rent it again in a heartbeat! The only issue we had was with the drain in the tub. It ran slow. Also the shower liner needed to be replaced. Other than that , all four of us would live there if we could!!
- Judith W , Posted: 04/30/2018
We are glad you enjoyed your stay! Our Property Services team was happy to take care of the drain and shower curtain liner. Please don't hesitate to call us during your stay if there is anything we can do!

very comfortable place to stay, perfect when traveling with a dog as deck and small yard area are secure, good view of the gulf

You do a good job. I appreciate it.
- Luther S , Posted: 12/18/2017
Cozy and comfortable, with great view of and access to the beach!
- Thomas W D , Posted: 12/07/2017
It was homey and just the right size. I also liked that the deck was big and had a gate.
- Meghan B , Posted: 10/14/2017
Zero kitchen cabinet/pantry storage for guest groceries/dry goods due to owner accupying only available cabinet in kitchen
No bed side lamps - were shown in rental pictures - a must in our opinion.
Deck needs to refinished. Several family members got splinters.
Dog area not secure. We had to use bungie cords to secure dog yard gate.
Very comfort furniture, nicely decorated, welcoming environment, closet to the beach, nice year round neighbors who introduced themselves, well appointed kitchen.
All in all a very nice place to stay.

For the six of us, this property was very affordable and comfortable.. We had a view of the ocean which was a short walk away. There are much bigger houses with much bigger prices but this one was perfect in both cases. We were on the go 18 hours a day and it was nice to come back to a cozy comfortable home like this one. The staff was great as always. Thank you so much. This is our 3 year to return and we will have many more years with Sand and Sea Rentals.

I've rented from them for years. They r the best. I tried another company one year and was not satisfied . The view was good and the decorations were perfect.
- Martha H , Posted: 06/27/2017
Great value for the money. Excellent for a family but the one shower may limit the number of adults. Good for dogs as there is a fenced area for them and a gate at the foot of the stairs to prevent them sneaking out.
- GRANT J , Posted: 05/15/2017
This was an excellent location-away from the 'hustle and bustle' of the more tourist part of town and so close to the beach. Would rent here again for sure!
- Tami L , Posted: 03/30/2017
nice property - comfortable and has all you need.
- Anonymous S from Rosenberg, TX, Posted: 08/09/2016
Beautiful older home.
- Anonymous G from Grand Prairie Texas, Posted: 07/11/2016
Loved this property! It was very clean and well decorated. Great size for a small group of people. I will definitely look into staying here again.
- Catherine from Houston TX, Posted: 07/05/2016
Very well decorated for a beach home. I'd live here! Very comfortable and cozy.
- Pat C from Houston TX, Posted: 06/22/2016
This is a cute, clean, efficient and close to the beach house. Great for a small family. Nice Gulf view. The washer & dryer are great, although located on car port level. No storm shutters and the mini blinds do not close enough to block morning sun.
- D E from Houston, TX, Posted: 06/13/2016
This an older home that has been nicely updated. The furnishings are perfect!!! It suited our taste to a tee. The kitchen is amply supplied, the beds were very comfortable and the internet connection was very fast.
I cannot say enough good things about this rental. We were at Pirates Beach which is a very quite neighborhood and within 2 blocks to beach access.
Thank you to the owners for having this available and thanks to Sand and Sea for managing the propery so well.
- Deborah W from Mineral Wells, Texas, Posted: 05/23/2015
Awesome house. My family LOVED 5 o'clock somewhere and will totally rent it again.
- Anonymous R from Cape Coral Florida, Posted: 09/08/2013
This house is perfect for a couple to take kids/grandkids. Only two bedrooms prevents other family or friends sharing your vacation space. The decorating theme of this house is excellent.
- Anonymous S , Posted: 07/31/2013
This house is one of the best we have stayed at in Galveston. It was adorable! Very roomy and comfy. The decor was perfect. It's close enough to the beach to walk and has a great, limited view of the ocean from the deck.
Great location to the seawall.
- Anonymous J from Dallas, TX, Posted: 06/06/2013
We've been renting from Sand 'N Sea for ten years. We can see and hear the water from 5 O'clock Somewhere - this is our first time to rent this home....for the price, it's the best house in Pirates Beach in our opinion. It was perfect for my husband and me.
- Stacy & Curt F from Dallas, TX, Posted: 04/29/2013
Great little house! Loved the bright, airy great room and wrap around deck for sitting around and relaxing. Plenty of room for 5 adults for a weekend stay. Easy walk to the beach. I'd definitely stay here again!
- Anonymous D from Dickinson, TX, Posted: 10/25/2012
We loved this property. Perfect for a family of 6 or smaller. It is open, bright, clean and very cute! We loved the short walk and easy access to the beach. Pirates Beach is also our favorite neighborhood to stay in with clean beaches and lots of friendly neighbors! Thanks 5 o'clock Somewhere for a wonderful stay!
- Anonymous T from Magnolia, Tx., Posted: 08/23/2012
Three minute walk to the beach! Nice deck but very close to neighbors. This beach is very small due to erosion. It was a bit crowded on the beach compared other communities.
- Jennifer from Waco, TX, Posted: 07/03/2012
This property is just the right size for a family of 6. With teenagers, it was nice to be close to the beach but we didn't have to be right on the water to enjoy the view and as the walk to the beach is just a tenth of a mile, the position of the house is really good. Also, even though the house is close to its neighbors it is positioned well for privacy. As "the Mom" I was pleased with the single bathroom and enjoyed having the half bath off the master bedroom. I realized into the week that the smaller home footprint and fewer baths made less work for me keeping everything clean and organized. The kids were very comfortable in the second bedroom. I am impressed with the interior of the house, too - - it looked freshly painted and felt light and comfortable and restful.

close to the beach, great view, comfy, we were 4 adults and 2 kids very comfy!
