A little dated but the home was even better than the photos! Great for 2 families, as the rooms are on different sides of the house- Michelle J , Posted: 10/03/2020
Best equipped kitchen we've run across! Overall property was clean, beach access was great, deck was huge with both shade and sun - house had everything you needed for a comfy stay. Other reviews have noted that some repairs are needed or that the house needs refreshed. We found it comfortable, appropriate for the price, and well equipped. The kids enjoyed the seashell books. The cold water lever in the outdoor shower needs repaired, we couldn't figure out the disposal, and the guest bath needs a toilet paper holder, but other than that, all good. Sand 'n sea does a good job with check in info,and communications. House has great proximity to San Luis Pass if your party includes fisherman - we ate our fill of fresh flounder and blue crabs throughout our stay. Beach was quiet and clean.- CINDY F , Posted: 08/16/2020
Great property, right on the beach, and very convenient. It is a very short walk down the trail. The mosquitos were out of control with the walk but once on the beach or back at the house, it was great.- Mikel E , Posted: 08/04/2020
We have stayed at Above the Sea for 3 years in a row. Needs some repairs, which are minor. Outdoor shower cold water handle is broken and the grill has a broken leg.- Michael W , Posted: 08/03/2020
Our Property Services team is already taking care of those two issues - thanks for letting us know!- Sand 'N Sea Properties, Posted: 08/03/2020
I have used Sand n Sea for MANY MANY years.- Becky G , Posted: 07/18/2020
Beautiful views from the dining table and porch. Great personal access to the beach.- Himdaye H , Posted: 07/16/2020
Patio is large and good for gatherings but lacks lounging furniture. Other than that house is great- Richard D , Posted: 06/27/2020
The location and views were great. The house had dead and live bugs especially behind beds. It has old brown carpet and this is a major reason not to stay at this house again even though we loved the location and sand /sea was easy to work with. It needs to have a good everywhere cleaning. Loved the hugh deck and our own walkover.- Robbie T , Posted: 06/20/2020
Ive used them over the years and never been disappointed. Instructions on TVs would be nice Im 70 and not tech savvy- Steven P , Posted: 05/28/2020
Great location! Being on the beach was a major plus. The property was clean and the kitchen very well-stocked. There isn’t a tub in the house (which wasn’t a problem for us, but might be for those with young kids or others who need one).- andria O , Posted: 09/01/2019
It is in the perfect spot...the sunset and moonlight is simply beautiful- Stanley P , Posted: 08/19/2019
Comfortable and accommodating.- Scott C , Posted: 08/12/2019
We loved the spacious deck. We would have appreciated an enclosed outdoor shower.- Lisa D , Posted: 08/04/2019
Perfect family home!!! We have now had two vacations at this property.- Michael W , Posted: 07/30/2019
Excellent location, easy to find, adequate to more than adequate room for 3 teen girls and 2 young boys. Suggestion: more large cooking pots and baking pans (we Cajuns like to eat!:))- Tonia L , Posted: 06/13/2019
Loved the layout of the house and easy access to the beach! We had such a great time :)- Concetta M , Posted: 05/21/2019
GREAT LOCATION EASY ACCESS TO THE BEACH- TIFFANY R , Posted: 04/23/2019
Kitchen had sufficient equipment but no wine opener. Bring all condiments and supplies that are needed.- Susan H , Posted: 03/18/2019
We have rented from Sand N Sea for many years - great customer service and reasonable prices for great properties- Wesley S , Posted: 11/26/2018
Perfect house, very comfortable and laid back.- Michael W , Posted: 07/30/2018
Great view, easy access to the beach, and an overall great layout!- Jorge T , Posted: 05/21/2018
Everyone was very friendly! Even called to ck in us once we checked in to see if we needed anything!- Theresa L , Posted: 05/14/2018
Very accommodating and comfortable. Definitely needs to increase window coverage -- sun comes in through blinds early in the morning (not always great if kids are up at 6:30 a.m.!); evening sun can make the house hot.- Scott C , Posted: 07/31/2017
Over all the property was good, clean, gorgeous views but I would keep in mind that access to the beach might not be there for long due to over grow dune- Beatriz M , Posted: 06/19/2017
This property worked very well for our young family of 5. The kitchen did not have some of the basics though so you pretty much had to start from scratch there. The one and only issue we had was one of the outdoor light coverings was loose and would bang around when the wind blew from a certain direction. We ended up having to move the baby into a different room because the banging noise was waking her up. There are blinds on some of the windows but they don't block the sun very well. Some blackout blinds would help if people want to sleep past 6am...didn't matter too much for us because we have kids up early anyway! We can forgive those three pretty minor things because of the location. Right next to the beach so easy access and a lovely view from the deck. We would stay there again (just fix that light covering and grab some black out blinds)!- Riley O , Posted: 04/07/2017
This is a great beachfront house with a dune walkover right on the property. The 4 bedroom house is spacious and accommodated our family of 7 without feeling crowded. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen is spacious and has a pantry. A great partly covered deck to watch the waves and the people on the beach. I would definitely rent this house again.- Anonymous G from Deer Park, Texas, Posted: 07/24/2016
We have stayed at this house before and enjoy this home very much. It is beach front with a gorgeous view. The house stays cool and is well stocked. Definitely recommend it and we would stay here again.- Anonymous D from Cedar Park, TX, Posted: 06/25/2016
Nice if the bedrooms had drapes. Very bright in the mornings- Anonymous D from DallasTX, Posted: 07/12/2015
Our family really enjoyed staying here. The beach was very clean, the views from EVERY room are excellent, and the house and furnishings, while not brand new, are very comfortable, good quality, and well appointed.- Anonymous T from Houston, Texas, Posted: 03/23/2015
Above the Sea is an older home, compared to the new resorts going up, but it is definitely a quaint and comfy home. We loved our stay there and would recommend it to families. The shape of the house allows people to enjoy the deck while giving you a sense of privacy and it blocked the strong wind that was blowing during our stay. This was also our first time using Sand n Sea and we were very pleased with them that I will definitely use their services again---I've tried others in Galveston and nothing beats Sand n Sea; believe me I've tried!- Anonymous M from Houston, TX, Posted: 11/30/2014
Perfect for family gathering- Anonymous from San Angelo, Posted: 09/07/2014
This is a great house. I loved the floor plan with the bedrooms split 2 rooms on opposite ends of the house. There's plenty of storage. We were staying with our daughter and her family (including 2 kids and a baby) so each family had privacy. I also loved the covered deck...very pleasant. Plenty of deck chairs. The private dune walkover right on the property was nice. The outside shower is always a plus.- Anonymous B from Deer Park, Texas, Posted: 07/19/2014
Above the sea was the perfect rental for us and another family to share. Loved the kitchen and new appliances. The deck was wonderful with lots of room and a mix of sun and shade. Great sized pantry meant we didn't have to store food on the counter. Thanks for a great rental experience!- Anonymous L from Grapevine, TX, Posted: 07/05/2014
Excellent location we love being right on the beach !- Anonymous W from Austin texas, Posted: 06/21/2014
This beach house is very clean and well maintained. The location and view is excellent. This was our fourth time at this beach house and we plan on being their next summer.- Anonymous C from Lufkin, Texas, Posted: 05/31/2014
Very nice property. Far enough from Galveston to get away from the masses and close enough to get there in good time. Quiet, fairly remote at the edge of town, beach is clean and easy to get to. The house is also very clean, comfortable, with all appliances in working condition, and the view cannot be beat!- Tom C from Morgan City, LA, Posted: 11/04/2013
Well equipped kitchen. Good option for girlfriends. Lots of separate beds.- Anonymous B from League City, TX, Posted: 09/23/2013
This is a wonderful one story floor plan! The deck certainly adds to the comfort of this home!- Anonymous A , Posted: 09/10/2013
Excellent floor plan for multiple families.- Anonymous F from Houston, TX, Posted: 07/27/2013
House was perfect for our families with 3 young children. We loved the easy beach access and the privacy of the beach. Also, we liked that driving on this part of the beach was not permitted which made us feel safer with our small children. We definitely will rent this house again when we come back to Galveston.- Anonymous C from College Station, Tx, Posted: 07/02/2013
Our family stayed for my sister's 50th Birthday celebration. We couldn't have chosen a better home for this occasion. The house has an Ocean View that is just beautiful and we basically had the Beach to ourselves. The Deck was enormous and the interior is warm and inviting. The Kitchen was spacious and FULLY stocked. It has state of the art Laundry facilities and the property was immaculate upon arrival. We all cried and didn't want to leave when it was time to go. Vowed to come back for future occasions and vacations. Above all, the Staff is incredible!! They went above and beyond to see that our stay was a memorable one!- Anonymous R from Sugarland, TX, Posted: 05/07/2013
I've rented through Sand 'n Sea for approximately 15 or 16 years. I've stayed at Above The Sea about 12 or 13 times. It is a lovely home and spacious enough to accommodate 6 to 10 quite easily. Sits right on the beach front with a great beach viewing deck. The deck has both covered and open areas, which is a must for me. I'll be back next year.- Phyllis from Houston, TX, Posted: 04/15/2013
Great house with an open floor plan. We had nine in our party - married couple, four adult sons and three girlfriends. We had plenty of room. We were very appreciative of the late checkout (3 pm) that we were offered without even asking.- Anonymous L from Baton Rouge, Posted: 01/02/2013
We are always happy to offer late checkouts when possible (especially on days when our office is closed so there are no guests arriving in the home you are staying in) and are glad you enjoyed your stay!- Sand 'N Sea Properties, Posted: 07/12/2017
Great house! Very clean and not real close to other houses.- Mike q from Santa fe, texas, Posted: 10/15/2012
This house is good for 2 sharing families. Two of the bedrooms are on one end of the house and the other two are on opposite sides.- Anonymous G from Houston, TX, Posted: 10/08/2012
This is a wonderful family house with an amazing view. You basically have the beach to yourself. We had 10 people in our group who stayed for the whole week,and the accomodations were very suffice! We would recommend Above the Sea to ANYONE!!- Anonymous W from Waco, Tx, Posted: 06/23/2012
We had ten people (including a 4 year old and 7 year old)in the house and it was great. The only problem we had was ants in the kitchen and bathrooms. Plenty of cookware, dishes etc. We were there the 2nd week in june and while the beach is public access it felt like it was our private beach - no crowds - loved the house and deck. Had a blast. We will be back!- Anonymous T from Bonham, Texas, Posted: 06/17/2012
Hello Taylor Family! We are sorry you had ants visiting you during your vacation! Above the Sea does have regular pest control maintenance done, but we are always happy to schedule an additional visit if there are any "uninvited guests" during your stay - just give the office a call! We look forward to seeing you again!- Sand 'N Sea Properties, Posted: 07/06/2017
Very nice home. It is well maintained. The view from the deck is lovely.- John & Lisa C from Lufkin, Texas, Posted: 06/02/2012
Above the Sea is a great beachfront property, and the deck is awesome! My family really enjoyed that the deck was both covered and uncovered and that both areas could accommodate a large number of people. The set up of the house was convenient too with 2 bedrooms and one bath on each side of the house for multiple family separation. Also, the neighboring houses were far away and there was plenty of privacy. Overall a really nice house.- Anonymous B from Houston Texas, Posted: 05/17/2012
Beautiful place to stay.- Anonymous V from upstate NY, Posted: 04/11/2012
Absolutely perfect rental for our family! You could have two families very comfortably. It is a great split floor plan and spacious. The deck is huge, and perfect beachfront location! It is a drive to get to the strand or restaurants, but well worth it! They have everything you need to cook though, so there is really no need to leave. Just bring plenty of groceries or grab some on the way in!- Anonymous K from Texas, Posted: 08/16/2011
Above the Sea has the biggest deck we've seen looking out over the beach. Great to enjoy coffee/cocktails/watching little one play in the sand. Great floor plan -- never felt crowded even with 6 adults and a three year old.- Anonymous R from Bedford, Texas, Posted: 05/13/2011
