The hot tub is crucial! Very close to the beach. Good outdoor space for hanging out in the grass, throwing the football, etc.- Ryan B , Posted: 12/31/2020
We have stayed at Aruba before and we love all the new updates.- Sara T , Posted: 09/29/2020
The location of Aruba was perfect for us! We wanted to be on the quieter end of the island with no driving access. Just outside the neighborhood are several small shops that can supply most last-minute needs. The short walk to the beach was safe. The neighborhood of Pirate's Beach is well maintained. During the weekdays, the homes around us were about 60% empty so we had a big portion of the shore to ourselves, which we felt was important during Covid issues. There were some issues inside: a broken bedside lamp left neglected, accumulated dirt and debris under the furniture (had to get under the couches to retrieve toys), the burners on the electric stove were erratic. Outside there were several random boards with nails protruding laying around and one of the storm shutter coverings with sharp rusted edges was left lying on the patio. The potential for this home is great, just needs attention to detail to be a 4 or 5 star rating.- Mary A from HOUSTON, Posted: 08/18/2020

This home has a gorgeous, redone kitchen and lovely family area; however, the stocking of the kitchen left us wishing they’d paid a little attention to some basics-some measuring cups, nicer utensils, and a Keurig would have been enjoyed. Also, the primary bedroom needs a little love-the coverlet did not fit the king-sized bed, the mattress was extremely uncomfortable, and the shower head in the bath only worked on one narrow setting. An exterior hose downstairs would have been a good idea too-the hose immediately outside the front door left us with a good deal of sand right outside the door.- Elizabeth F , Posted: 07/27/2020
Enjoyed the location. Good size and really enjoyed the hot tub.- Miriam L , Posted: 07/25/2020
We found this home wonderful for our stay. It was clean, and although we didn’t use all the beds - the 3rd bedroom with bunks went unused, the other two bedrooms were fine - the beds were very comfortable. The master bedroom has a translucent curtain and no shade, so sleeping late might be difficult for those who are light sensitive, but we were personally fine with this. The kitchen was great and well supplied. When we had a concern about bedside lighting, SandnSea very promptly brought over a new bedside light, and they Immediately fixed a carpentry maintenance issue on the deck. So many rental homes do not have good reading lights in the living room, and this home was no exception....that would be our one complaint, but since it is so common, I may need to start traveling with a headlamp. Our first morning there, a man from SandnSea came by to get the hot tub working safely for us. We hope to stay in Aruba again, and we greatly appreciate the responsiveness of SandnSea.- Mary K , Posted: 07/12/2020
A minor hiccups during our stay. Had wrong password for wi-fi but called the office and got if figured out and could not find all the parts to the blender so office sent new one over immediately. Very satisfied with office response to our issues. Enjoyed our stay and very impressed with staff and how our minor issues were handled.- Robert L , Posted: 02/22/2020
Pros: close to the beach, well stocked kitchen, plenty of games and puzzles for families, pet friendly, cozy atmosphere Cons: outside could use a little touchup(garage doors), no instructions for the hot tub (eventually figured it out), beds were a little uncomfortable (fine for the few nights)- Kim S , Posted: 08/13/2019
Returning from years before- Bobby Gene N , Posted: 07/02/2019
Our third time staying here. It keeps getting better. It would be nice to have newer pots and pans. Great beach views and we could hear the Gulf from the deck.- Tony B , Posted: 03/08/2019
It is really nice place, very close to beach.- Estella C , Posted: 03/06/2019
Great location, close to the beach, this house was perfect!- Rick B , Posted: 08/28/2018
Aruba beach house is in an excellent location! The house itself has an open floor plan and easily accommodates a larger family. The house needs some TLC! Oven was not working consistently, toaster broken, mattresses in poor condition, etc. That being said, Sand and Sea was excellent in repairing our immediate repair situations. We would love to stay at Aruba again- just feel owner needs to give it a little TLC.- Kristi U , Posted: 08/14/2018
Great view of the water from the house and deck. Short walk to the beach. 1 dining room chair was broken and Bunk room closet door was off the track. great tv's and programs. Could use more forks and cockie sheet with sides to cook bacon in the oven. otherwise kitchen was well stocket- Anna E , Posted: 08/05/2018

Love the hot tub, the large deck and the beach view.- Tony B , Posted: 04/20/2018
The house has an awesome view to the ocean, and the hot tub is nice. The neighborhood is very quiet and no traffic. The beach is private and not to many people around. Nice vacation house. Minor issues around the house that need attention from property management. Overall all we enjoyed staying there for 7days.- Noe M , Posted: 03/26/2018
Wonderful house- Melinda M , Posted: 08/30/2017

Great property, great location- Sara T , Posted: 07/18/2017
Good house-great location- Neat E G , Posted: 05/09/2017
Aruba is perfect walking distance to the beach...far enough away to escape the roar of the surf and the constant wind. The upper deck was the perfect spot to start the day, and the main deck and hot tub were a great way to end it. The neighborhood was quiet and well maintained.We liked being just outside of the busy Galveston area. The house itself was clean and comfortable. We would definitely rent again.- Jenna B , Posted: 04/04/2017
Very clean for being a property that allows pets.- Michelle from Cypress, TX, Posted: 08/16/2016
We have stayed at Aruba 3 times and love the house and location.- Anonymous , Posted: 08/09/2016
Well-decorated and comfortable home, with a good layout. The hot tub was a big hit. Has a good view, three houses from the beach, in a quiet part of Pirates Beach.- Anonymous , Posted: 05/02/2016
Great location and having the Hot Tub on the deck was a real plus- Anonymous from Dublin, Ireland, Posted: 04/04/2016
Great property - very adequate and comfortable with easy beach access - just what our family was looking forward to and needed for relaxing and entertaining- Anonymous D from west Texas, Posted: 08/15/2015
Grand kids love the hot tub and the nearness of the beach. We slept 6 adults and 4 grand kids just fine.- Bruce D from Ft. Worth, Tx, Posted: 08/04/2015
this is a great property in a very quiet neighborhood with close proximity to the beach. special features include a rooftop deck with panoranic views, a large balcony off the master bedroom, a hot tub, and a yard. the beach is pristine and beautiful with soft white sand and crystal clear water. additionally, the beach is very safe -- everyone leaves their cabanas and chairs on the beach! ours were there for the week and were untouched the entire time.- janna s from houston, texas, Posted: 07/28/2015
Hi Janna, We are glad you enjoyed Aruba last week! We've been super lucky this year with no sargassum to speak of coming in. The beaches have been gorgeous and we are so glad you got to take advantage!- Sand 'N Sea Properties, Posted: 07/07/2017
The property was an excellent location. Just a very short walk to the beach. The area was very quite and the beach was not crowded at all until Sat. of course.- Anonymous K from Seabrook. Tx, Posted: 06/30/2015
It was a relaxing and comfortable house, we loved it.- Anonymous d from dallas, tx, Posted: 08/21/2014

Close to the beach.- Ron T from Greenbank, WA, Posted: 07/08/2014
We had a great time staying at Aruba. The house was perfect for 8 people. We had plenty of room. The kitchen is stocked with plates, cups, cooking utensils and pots/pans. The view of the beach from the house is awesome.- Anonymous C from Dallas, TX, Posted: 06/17/2014
My family enjoyed everything about our week in the Aruba. We definitely found nothing lacking and are looking forward to our next vacation, hoping the Aruba will be available.- Anonymous from La Porte, Posted: 06/10/2014
SandNsea properties are very nice and clean. The staff are all very nice and willing to help with what ever question one may have. I like that they call you and inform you that the beach house is ready for early check in. They also call during your stay to see if everything is okay or if you need anything.- Estella C from Richmond, Tx, Posted: 03/13/2014
We stayed at the "Aruba" house and were very pleased! We would definitely stay there again!- Sheila from Porter, texas, Posted: 03/11/2014
The key feature for our family is the large hot tub. Wish the house were a little larger.- Anonymous H from Texas, Posted: 01/02/2014
The hot tub is a big drawing card for the grand kids. Short walk to the beach is a drawing card for us old folks.- Anonymous D from Ft. Worth, Tx., Posted: 08/11/2013
Aruba has excellent views and proximity to the beach. The hot tub is a nice feature of the home. We have rented this home twice and plan to return.- Anonymous T from Huston, TX, Posted: 06/18/2013
We LOVED this property for our Family vacation, and were so thrilled to be able to include "Dude" our Maltese Puppy during our stay at Aruba! I love to cook for my family and the BIG kitchen was WONDERFUL (although a little understocked compared to other sandnsea properties I've stayed in). The bedrooms had plenty of space, but the master bed was VERY uncomfortable. Overall, this was a beautiful home and we will return!- Terry J from Conroe, TX, Posted: 05/20/2013
We were glad to have you Terry - and loved sharing a picture of you and Dude on our Facebook page! We look forward to welcoming you all back soon!- Sand 'N Sea Properties, Posted: 07/12/2017
Great house. Even though not beach "front", the view from the balcony is fantastic! Excellent deck with spa. Comfortable home. Well done Sand 'N Sea.- Anonymous from Texas, Posted: 03/19/2013
this rental was very comfortable,the kids had a great time- Kathy W from Dickinson,texas, Posted: 10/16/2012
Excellent location! Just a few houses from the beach!- Anonymous C from Tyler, Texas, Posted: 09/01/2012
LOVE this beach house! The beach view from the deck is amazing. The set up of the house is perfect. We had an amazing time and we would definitely pick this property for our return.- Anonymous L from Chicago, IL, Posted: 08/13/2012
This is a great house. There is a wonderful view of the beach both from inside the house and from the deck. The hot tub on the deck was great. Another great feature was the outside shower, which had hot water. The only thing disappointing was we thought there was wifi and it appears that there was not. Not a big deal in the grand scheme of things.- VJ from Austin, Tx, Posted: 05/21/2012
Perfect house. It had features I had not even thought to ask about. The hot tub was on the deck so children could be easily supervised. The washer/dryer was in the hall for easy (and frequent) use. The view of the Gulf was wonderful and the access to it was easy. The electric exterior shades are great. We will want this house again.- Anonymous T from Tyler/Houston/Austin Texas, Posted: 01/03/2012
We love Aruba! We've rented it twice and we can't wait to rent it again.- Anonymous T from Houston, Posted: 08/24/2011
Excellent views of the ocean, short walk to the beach, great hot tub- Anonymous O from Houston, TX, Posted: 08/02/2011
The view from the house was beautiful and we enjoyed every minute of our stay at Aruba. We will definitely rent this property in the future!- Anonymous T from Houston, TX, Posted: 06/28/2011
The kids and grand kids thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub (the old folks did not use it). It accommodated 10 people very easily and it is an easy walk to the beach and the view of the ocean is super.- Anonymous D from Ft. Worth, Tx., Posted: 06/22/2011
This home is in a great location and is furnished nicely. We have rented several other homes over the years and this particular home we would rent with a few small improvements and updates. Otherwise all 7 of us were comfortable. The hot tub was a huge success!Unfortunately, no swing or hammock.- A. W from Katy, Texas, Posted: 05/16/2011
