Exceptionally clean and fully stocked with all the necessary kitchen equipment. Loved the high ceiling in the great room. Beach access was good.- Deborah M , Posted: 10/14/2021
great location, pet friendly, great layout- Mark B , Posted: 07/31/2021
What you see in the photos is definitely it. Very clean (just like the other S&S home we stayed in). Excellent spot on the beach. It is 3 or 4 houses down from a public beach access point. So I'm sure it will be crowded during prime time. But it was a great stay.- Courtney K , Posted: 05/24/2021
Great property for family vacations. Close to one of our favorite quaint but fully stocked grocery stores (Seven Seas) and right on the beach. This was our tenth visit and we are planning many more!- Mark B , Posted: 04/16/2021
overall experience was excellent, location fantastic, Things to improve, rising the celling in the master bathroom would be great, replace the spiral staircase with stairs that provide more space and safer mobility, But it is a great location to relax and enjoy the ocean, GREAT service thx.- MIGUEL A R , Posted: 03/22/2021
Loved Cats Meow! House was very clean and spacious. It was everything we needed. Sand N Sea staff was very helpful and friendly. They even left us a dog bowl for our pet. We will definitely use them again! 5 stars all the way!- Elizabeth B , Posted: 12/28/2020
Great view of the gulf and quiet area to enjoy..- Angelica V , Posted: 12/22/2020
we love Cat’s Meow and Sand ‘N Sea does a great job managing the property! I think this may have been the seventh or eighth time at Cat’s Meow- Mark B , Posted: 11/19/2020
Great Location and well stocked and very clean property! Excellent ocean view- Diana A , Posted: 10/27/2020
great location, great layout of home, pet friendly, home has recently been updated, kitchen area is awesome- Mark B , Posted: 10/06/2020
Checkin and checkout process is awesome! Close to the public beach access so it was super busy! Great porch and downstairs area as well! The bedroom upstairs is super difficult to climb to each day - have to go up a spiral staircase which we found challenging! Good news is that there is a bathroom up there for those middle of the night trips! Overall good stay!- Mary H , Posted: 07/25/2020
We have used y’all for years and always had a good experience.- Katy A , Posted: 07/08/2020
The Beach House was perfect , just steps away from the beach.- Mike F , Posted: 07/04/2020
Wonderful experience- Michele S , Posted: 06/10/2020
we have stayed at Cat’s Meow numerous times and love it!- Mark B , Posted: 06/07/2020
Cats Meow has a wonderful view and easy access to the beach. It is well appointed and works well for a family. We found the property very clean, neat and tidy.- Jerry G , Posted: 06/03/2020
We had a great time at the Cat’s Meow! Would have been perfect with a walk over bridge to the beach...- Millie A , Posted: 05/18/2020
Have had good experience before- Linda N , Posted: 03/30/2020
Since we have a dog, we went with this property as it had a gate at the top of the stairs. We did not need to worry about our boy when he wanted to be on the deck.- Stephanie S , Posted: 09/22/2019
This layout is the absolute best. This house has a large concrete pad, great outdoor lighting, eating area and enclosed shower.- Christina C , Posted: 08/16/2019
We have used you guys before and had a good experience- Edward W , Posted: 08/11/2019
In our experience properties rented with Sand n Sea are always well-maintained and the website is informative. This house had a front door that was difficult to open and close and with blinds that were broken, but otherwise was nice, clean and well-stocked. The neighbors had loud music going until 3 a.m. Overall, we had a nice 3-night stay, however.- Katherine S , Posted: 07/30/2019
Yes I recommend y’all to everyone! Very customer focused!- Leslie M , Posted: 07/15/2019
Great service.- Melisa B , Posted: 07/06/2019
We really enjoyed staying at Cat's Meow. Loved that it had direct beach access as we wanted to be able to sit on the deck and enjoy the view. The kitchen was furnished with plenty of cookware and other items were easy to locate (extra sheets, blankets and puzzles). The house was clean and very comfortable. It was nice that the area was geared towards family so there were no loud parties going on. Also, we had a dog with us that needed to go out throughout the night and we felt very secure with the lighting availability. We would definitely recommend this home to others looking for a home away from home while enjoying time at the beach.- Linda C , Posted: 06/29/2019
Great view and easy beach access with options for full sun and full shade with nice breeze! Floor plan was great, updated kitchen with a bonus having 3 full bathrooms! Enjoyed the picnic table on bottom deck. One potential safety concern....there is a water drip possibly from air conditioner system that falls on bottom three steps and makes them slippery on one side.- Melissa L , Posted: 06/11/2019
Dog friendly, rates, easy to book, directly on beach, and great property pictures.- Jason D , Posted: 05/28/2019
Perfect size for 6-8 people. Pet friendly and has everything you need. We loved it, despite the rainy weekend.- Sharon G , Posted: 05/14/2019
Beautiful home right on the beach. Exceptionally clean! Absolutely no pet odor! Loved the rocking chairs on the porch. Perfect vacation for us & grandchildren! Made many memories! Kitchen well stocked. Huge kitchen island made meal buffets so easy to serve! Of course my daughter's a great cook & spoiled us with fabulous meals. We used two bedroom chairs to sit 6 comfortably around the table! We will definitely come back again! Sand N Sea staff very kind.- Katherine C from Princeton, Tx, Posted: 05/11/2019
House is very comfortable and clean. The location is superb -right on the beach. The walkover is right at the house. We loved it!- Carrie S , Posted: 03/17/2019
This is a great property. It has all the conveniences we needed to have a relaxing stay. My friends and I love to cook and really enjoy how well stocked the kitchen utensils are and the open layout creates a fun environment. Of course, being able to chill on the deck and easily walk to the beach is priceless.- Linda R , Posted: 10/29/2018
perfect home right on the beach, wifi worked great, 3rd bedroom accessed by spiral staircase only, 3rd bathroom toilet built under slanted roof, a man might have trouble standing to urinate, you have to bend at the waist to use the toilet, deck does not have shade cover in the mornings until late afternoon- Dana W , Posted: 10/15/2018
Very nice beach front home. Great beds and kitchen. Roomy lower deck picnic table and grill.- Aaron W , Posted: 08/29/2018
The beach is very close. The house needs a full coat of paint. Several appliances need to be replaced. It definitely needs a very good deep cleaning. The stove top and vent were horrible. The microwave has huge rust spots where the inside has peeled away. The bathtub stoppers were black. I’m sorry to say the owners haven’t taken care of this property and we definitely won’t stay here next time.- Susan S from Houston, Posted: 07/20/2018
We are sorry that Cat's Meow wasn't everything you expected it to be! Please don't ever hesitate to call our office during your stay if there is something we can do to help. We would have been happy to replace the microwave & tub stoppers or have housekeeping come back out to re-clean the kitchen.- Sand 'N Sea Properties, Posted: 08/02/2018
It is right on the beach and very clean.- Katherine L , Posted: 07/07/2018
This was the second time my daughter and I have stayed at Cat's Meow and we enjoyed the house very much both times. I think the only minor wish that I have is that I would love to see a small table on the covered deck 'cause it would be so wonderful to comfortably eat meals up on the deck with the wonderful Gulf view!- Mary T , Posted: 06/28/2018
Great kitchen well appointed very clean- Linda C , Posted: 03/18/2018
Great property. We had high tides while we were there and it flooded the pathway to the beach, but we made due. The oven was not working when we got there, but sand n sea made us aware of this and had placed a toaster oven and a turkey toaster in the house, and they worked great!- Adrienne H , Posted: 10/05/2017
Perfect location, directly on the beach, with nice internal layout. There were nine of us, two couples in their fifties, and five 20-somethings, our daughters and their closest girl friends. Ample space to sleep, sit on the deck and read or catch up or soak up the sun, and lovely walking options right in front of our door step. Would be nice for the owners to consider giving it a fresh coat of paint, we missed having a large dining table to all sit around for mealtimes, and the dish washer and oven were both tricky to operate and not always 100% functional. Having said all this, being able to bring our 2 year old dog with us and encourage a free schedule for all in this lovely setting, was a treat.- Anne D , Posted: 08/21/2017
We are glad you all enjoyed your stay!
Our Property Services team is on-call 24/7 and is always happy to help with any unexpected mechanical issues. Just give our office a call!- Sand 'N Sea Properties, Posted: 08/21/2017
We have used Sand N Sea many times and we have never been disappointed, including times when we experienced issues at the property.- Kyle B , Posted: 08/18/2017
The Cat's Meow wasn't really the home I originally wanted but all others were booked and I'm so happy! It is a lot smaller than what I usually rent but we had less people so it worked. I thought it was perfect! Very clean, set up nicely, most comfortable bed I've had in a rental, the kitchen had everything we needed and more. The staff was so attentive and kind. We even had a small toilet backup the first day but that was fixed almost immediately and we never had another issue. It rained most days we were there but that didn't spoil our experience because the home was so comfortable. We binge watched some shows. watched some movies and did puzzles. I was soooo sad to leave! I would love to own this home! Thank you for a great vacation, we were all sad to leave.- Melissa O , Posted: 08/07/2017
This house was perfect for our needs. Comfortable and well equipped. There are some noticeable repairs needed, however.- Ken & Karen S , Posted: 07/23/2017
This house was really nice and the kitchen is the best stocked I have stayed in. Having 3 bathrooms came in handy. Out the door and on the beach was really nice no sand in the car. We really enjoyed our family stay here. Everything was wonderful. thanks.- Gina L from Porter, Posted: 05/16/2017
Save your money. Choose another property. The staff of Sand 'N Sea is super to work with, but this house needs to be removed from their rental program. So disappointing.- Martha R from Deer Park, Texas, Posted: 09/18/2016
Hello Ms. Roehrick - Thank you for your honest feedback! Our team would love to help you find a home that has all the amenities you are interested in for your next visit - just give us a call!- Sand 'N Sea Properties, Posted: 07/06/2017
Nice little beach house on the west end of the island. Perfect place to stay if you want to stay away from the crowded seawall area. Seems this part of the island attracts all those who are here for the peace and quietness of a vacation.- Anonymous O from Katy, TX, Posted: 07/19/2016
Excellent Experience - will do this again- Anonymous S from Fort Worth, Texas, Posted: 11/16/2015
Cat's meow was clean, comfortable and had great view of beach. We will definitely try to come back to this property.- Anonymous from Montgomery, Posted: 08/18/2015
A good place to stay if you have pets and don't want anything too fancy. The location on the beach is good. The railing on the porch is right at eye level sitting in the chairs which is odd - have to sit in the low chairs to see the water....- Anonymous from Hallettsville, Posted: 09/24/2014
Use the storm shutter on the second floor window for more privacy.- Anonymous A , Posted: 08/16/2014
We had a wonderful time at this house. It was exactly like the pictures on the website......we have rented 3 different houses in the past and have never never been disappointed!!!!- Anonymous T from La Porte, TX, Posted: 11/24/2013
For a nice, relaxing time on the beach in Galveston, October is perfect!- Carol and Gary H from Midland, Texas, Posted: 10/26/2013
The Cat's Meow proved to be an excellent property - Right on the beach, clean and well maintained - Very convenient to the West End Restraurant ( excellent ) Great place for a relaxing week on the beach.- Anonymous A from Texas, Posted: 08/09/2013
As always we had a wonderful experience from check in to check out. The entire staff is very friendly and helpful. I wish I could remember the names of everyone for personal recognition. Thanks to the owner for sharing his/her home especially since it is pet friendly.- Anonymous M from Flower Mound TX, Posted: 11/12/2012
The Cat's Meow is an Awesome place to stay!! Beautiful view from the upstairs master bedroom in the morning!!!! Sand n Sea employees went beyond the call of duty to make sure we felt at home. Thanks again! We WILL see you next year for the LoneStar Rally!!!!- Danny D from East Mountain, TX, Posted: 11/05/2012
The property was exactly what we expected based on the website information. Accommodations were in good shape and the property was very clean.- Anonymous A from Richardson, TX, Posted: 10/01/2012
Great property, close to beach, quite, and clean.- Anonymous from Houston, Texas, Posted: 09/12/2012
We had a great time at Cat's Meow. The kids loved sleeping in the loft, and had a ball with the spiral staircase. The newly renovated bathrooms were a pleasant surprise, though the kids preferred to shower downstairs in the cool outdoor shower!- Anonymous H from Fort Worth, TX, Posted: 08/18/2012
Have enjoyed Sand N' Sea rentals for many years and will continue to do so.- Gary H from Midland, TX, Posted: 07/22/2012
beautiful home. the view is outstanding. home away from home. lovely.- Mary S from Webster Texas, Posted: 05/23/2012
This is a simple, beautiful house; very comfortable; furnishings are not overdone; very clean; seems like a home-away-from-home.- Anonymous G from Garrison, NY, Posted: 03/02/2012
The Cat's Meow is an excellent beach house for families and those traveling with a pet. It's beachfront location makes it ideal for those wishing to be near the water with an unobstructed view of the Gulf which is easily accessible. This house is very comfortable with all of the conveniences of home with the exception of some of some minor TV cable and cell phone reception restrictions. We would definitely entertain the idea of a return visit in the future.- P. B from Dallas, TX, Posted: 12/28/2011
We spent four nights and enjoyed our vacation VERY much! Having three full bathrooms was a plus, and the towels were plentiful and fluffy! The great staff at Sand 'n Sea made the reservation and check-in process smooth and professional.- Anonymous T from Houston, Texas, Posted: 11/16/2011
Beautiful house, great location, nice & quiet beach during the week.- Anonymous H from KINGWOOD, Tx, Posted: 10/03/2011
Great property...close, clean beach access...great large picnic table and shower downstairs. It is not new or fancy but our idea of a "beach house"...open and airy with large spaces...great to have fun bath off large living area for two queen sleeper sofas and day guests. The upstairs loft was great and stayed cool, too!- B. P from Conroe, TX, Posted: 07/23/2011
We were 3 couples plus an 18-month old and were very comfortable with the space of the house. The king size bed upstairs in the loft was too hard but the 3 bathrooms were a great asset. The beachfront location was wonderful too.- Anonymous W from Pineland, TX, Posted: 07/05/2011
