If you ride your motorcycle to this house, be careful of the rocks and sand in the road and driveway.- Debra H , Posted: 11/04/2019

Better At The Beach
This house wasn’t as clean as it should’ve been when we got there. Kitchen counters had some type of grit on them. The bunk beds had sand all over the comforters. The faucet in master bath tub never stopped dripping. The washing machine was extremely loud & moved around when in use. Could not lock sliding glass door in living room from the inside. Had to use a pole to lock it. The kitchen supplies didn’t look very clean.- Gale F from Cypress, Tx, Posted: 08/25/2019
Hi Gale - We are sorry to hear that you had any issues during your stay. Please don't ever hesitate to call our office ASAP if there's anything we can do to make your visit better. Our Property Services team would have been happy to help!- Sand 'N Sea Properties, Posted: 08/26/2019
Love sand and sea! They really do a great job at making customer comfortable. The ac went out and was fixed within an hour. We will definitely return.- Eunice D , Posted: 07/30/2019
We had an issue with the lock, but it got resolved. The washing machine wasn't working but they offered to have a laundry service do our laundry or pay us back for cost in cured for a laundry mat. The location and the views are amazing! Would not hesitate to rent this property again. It's at the end of the beach access road so it's peaceful and quiet!- Dena R , Posted: 07/17/2019
Hi Dena! We are so glad you enjoyed your time at Better at the Beach! We apologize for the unexpected issue with the washing machine. After the tech determined it couldn't be repaired a new unit was ordered. We are sorry that we weren't able to complete the repair during your stay, and were happy to extend the offer of laundry assistance. We hope to welcome you back a again soon!- Sand 'N Sea Properties, Posted: 07/18/2019
It is a nice, clean property. It is close to the beach, making it easier to watch the kids walk back and forth from the beach. Overall a great vacation.- John and Pearl W , Posted: 07/09/2019
The house was clean and in great shape. It was a pleasure doing business with Sand and Sea. Everyone was very helpful and nice. We had a great trip and hope to be back next Summer. Thank you!- Steve M , Posted: 06/04/2019
This house was perfect. My family will book again!- Eloiza B , Posted: 05/14/2019
Fantastic rental..everything you need and right on the beach.- Deanne R , Posted: 04/23/2019
We have rented the same house for two years in a row. Appreciate your professional and friendly management services.- Michael & Karen M , Posted: 03/05/2019
This is a great place to stay. Will stay again next year.- Kurt B , Posted: 01/01/2019
Better at the Beach is a well-appointed beachfront property-literally steps from the sand. It is decorated with a flair for color and whimsy. I would suggest replacing the king mattress.- Diane W , Posted: 11/12/2018
This was the most inexpensive property available. The Property was very nice, beautiful location and well appointed.- Nicole H , Posted: 11/05/2018
Very nice property, in tip top condition, has everything you need. Perfect size for us, great location. Would definitely stay here again- Douglas D , Posted: 10/22/2018
Great place. Our family is all grown so it was a plus that the 3rd br was not bunks Maybe would be helpful to have a few more small bowls- William F , Posted: 09/04/2018
This is a wonderful place to stay right on the beach. Comfortable, clean, lots of amenities. We will definitely stay here again. Close to all the main stores but far enough away to have a beach almost all your own!- Stephanie L , Posted: 07/17/2018
Great week of fun at the beach which was steps away. We appreciated the set up of the house and we had no issues.- Julia S , Posted: 07/10/2018
Property was right on the beach, close to town, & newly remodeled. Very comfortable. It was pet friendly.- Barbara L , Posted: 05/24/2018
We enjoyed staying at this property. Everything was just as promised and me and my husband and our two dogs were very comfortable. It's right on the beach and we really enjoyed the easy access. We would definitely stay here again.- Sheri T , Posted: 04/25/2018
The house was in excellent shape on arrival. Clean rooms, beds already made and what looks like new deck furniture that was very comfortable. Everything worked as it should and the view was perfect. And such a short walk to the beach. You walk off the driveway and right on to the sand. Just a short drive to Galveston and the Pleasure Pier. Will look forward to renting this house again. SandnSea is a pleasure to do business with.- Don H from Houston, Posted: 04/03/2018
We are booking again- Carlotta C , Posted: 11/03/2017
i believe paper towel and toilet paper should be provided with this rental. also would have been nice to have a cooler and a beach umbrella. we were flying and unable to bring that sort of provisions. otherwise we loved the house and the furnishings - great location and very comfortable!- Valerie E , Posted: 10/12/2017
We are glad you enjoyed your stay! We are happy to provide a roll of toilet tissue for each bathroom at arrival for all of our guests. We do have a list of "Things to Bring" on our website (under "Vacation Planning") that may help for planning for your next visit.

We would never think of using another vacation home rental company. Sand N Sea is top notch, professional and efficient everytime we come to Galveston. We have stayed in several beachfront homes and this is one of our new favorites. Better at the Beach is right on the beach and is very nice. When it's just us (empty nesters) with our 2 weiner dogs this is where we will stay. This one would also be great for one family with lots of kids.- Mike and Roxanne K from Edgewood, Tx, Posted: 09/16/2017
Of the 9 guests this property can accommodate, 7 of them are expected to share the one bathroom with only a shower stall. This isn't very practical.- Stacey D , Posted: 08/10/2017
Hello Stacey, We are sorry to hear that the 3-bedroom/2-bath layout of Better at the Beach didn't work out for your group, but glad to know you had a great time! If you ever have any questions about the floor plans or layout information listed online for any of our beach homes, please don't hesitate to give us a call!- Sand 'N Sea Properties, Posted: 08/14/2017
Better at the Beach
This was an amazing beach house to stay in. This was our first time renting a beach home and we were not disappointed. You can't get any closer to the beach. Plus you have your own little spot on the beach, its not cluttered like it is on at the sea wall. Well recommend this property to anybody who is looking to get close to the beach. Definitely beats staying at a hotel. This property even has a washer and dryer. As you can see in the pics, great view to the ocean from multiple points in the house. too many great things to describe. We had 7 people and there was plenty of sleeping room for everybody. Would absolutely stay here again. Specifically this property. Although there does appear to be many other great looking properties. For now I can only speak to this one. Yes, Yes, Yes. Sand n Sea people were awesome! They called everyday to check on us. Even gave us a small gift bag upon our arrival. Checking in and out was a breeze. Booking was easy and secure. A++ A Happy Customer- Eli C from ODESSA, Posted: 07/17/2017
This property is beautiful inside & out!! Right on the beach! Views are beautiful! Would definitely stay here again. Sand 'N Sea people are amazing!- Robbin W , Posted: 05/22/2017
This is a great house right on the beach. It is at the end of a road and gave us more privacy.- Marsha D , Posted: 04/24/2017
The Name Says it All
Love, love, loved this house! If you want to be just steps from the beach with a large deck for entertaining or just enjoying the view and the sound of the waves rolling in, this is the place for you! House is beautifully appointed and the people at SandnSea are so easy to work with! Nice size rooms, great kitchen, and close to everything. Hated to leave but we're already planning a return trip!- Jim Z from Smithton , Posted: 03/20/2017
Great location!! Close to town and right on the beach! Loved the chairs on the porch they looked new. Was there with my wife and her sister due to Hurricane Matthew keeping us from our normal spot on Hilton Head Island. We had a nice stay and enjoyed the house. Very well furnished with everything we needed.- Anonymous N from Harker Heights,Tx, Posted: 10/17/2016
Enjoyed the location and proximity to beach. Home was well furnished and excellent selection of pots and pans for cooking. Covered parking very limited to only one car.- Anonymous G from Houston, Texas, Posted: 08/09/2016
Great location, well kept home. Just right for our small family. Only steps from the beach which was extremely clean and not crowded, even on the weekend. Comfy chairs on the top deck perfect for sitting out in the evening. Negatives: The house is at the end of the road which is a blessing and a curse--constant traffic with people driving very fast and turning around in the drive or at the end of the road. Since we had a young child with us for most of the week that was worrisome. I think a "no outlet" sign by the city would solve some of this.- Anonymous from Santa Fe, TX, Posted: 06/14/2016
This is a very comfortable and pretty house so close to the beach that you feel you step out of the house and are already there. All very nicely maintained and kept clean and nicely painted. Love the deck! and the picnic tables downstairs. It is so nicely decorated that it feels cozy and as if you are right at home.- Anonymous F , Posted: 06/01/2016
Bring beach towels and bring extra bath towels as you are only provided one towel, one wash cloth and a hand towel for each guest.- Anonymous from Houston, Posted: 04/04/2016
Hello! We are always happy to provide additional towels upon request - just give our office a call during your stay! We also have beach towels for rent at our office if you don't want to worry about packing your own!- Sand 'N Sea Properties, Posted: 07/07/2017
