Beautiful get away with excellent views from upper and lower decks, kitchen in which two adults can move about easily, and OMG the hot tub!- Marcella D , Posted: 10/26/2020
We had a great time, but they could definitely use a walkable beach access from the house. The tropical storm Beta dumped a lot of water and trash on the beach side of the house. We had to use the neighbors beach access while we were there.- Mason M , Posted: 09/28/2020
Not as large as the pictures made it out to be but it was a nice home enjoyed our stay except for the storm that came in while we were there- Connie B , Posted: 09/22/2020
You’ll love the location, beach, the really cute coastal look & decor of the house. But bring your own pillows for the beds, the ones they had must have been bought at the dollar store. They were so flat.- Tina M , Posted: 09/11/2020
Perfect for our family of 4 (including 2 grown sons) plus small dog. Excellent beach access. Hot tub was super at night, look at the stars. Lots of coffee pots in the kitchen but not a Keurig. We loved the layout because everyone could have their own room.- Jeff F , Posted: 08/16/2020
It is nicer than the pictures.. the view is a+.- Laura M , Posted: 08/02/2020
Pet friendly, the right number of bedrooms and reasonable price- LERA H , Posted: 07/30/2020
I loved our beach house and sand and sea was very easy to work with. They quickly responded to any questions. We had a toilet issue and they were there within an hour to fix it. We would definitely rent through them again!- Ruth B , Posted: 05/12/2020
We have been customers of Sand N Sea for years and are very pleased with them- Eric P , Posted: 03/16/2020
Crab Shack was an amazing property! The owners went all out with the decor, & everything was beautifully beachy! The fenced-in yard for the dogs was awesome but the only setback was all the spikey burrs that are in the yard as well as the pathway to the beach.. just check the paws of your dog cuz chances are they have some burrs stuck on their paws. Overall it was a wonderful experience as we spent the month of January at this awesome home..- Vivian B , Posted: 02/21/2020
We’ve had good experience with Sand n Sea in the past- Kathy M , Posted: 12/18/2019
This house worked perfectly for my family for Thanksgiving. We had dogs at the house and having a fenced in area was nice for them (even though we had to deal with sticker burrs). It was well decorated and had the kitchen amenities we needed. I think the house may have previously allowed smoking, so it did smell a little, but it was still the perfect setup for our family.- Carolyn L , Posted: 12/02/2019
Super comfortable and nicely decorated home our family enjoyed very much. Beach is great for family and friends, we hated to leave and hope to return to the Crab Shack next year. Will definitely use San N Sea again for future rentals.- Curtis C , Posted: 08/26/2019
We have rented with sand n sea previously and have been pleased.- Karen T , Posted: 08/11/2019
Feels like home! From the porch views, to the amenities of the house it will make you want to move to Galveston.- Cindy C , Posted: 07/27/2019
Loved our stay at The Crab Shack! Hot Tub awesome, Kitchen totally equipped with every appliance needed (except cheese grater), blankets, pillows, towels, iron, plus the decor is fabulous! The yard could have been mowed and rid of stickers plus could have used an umbrella. But this house is top notch and will book it next year. Thank you Sand and Sea- Anonymous U , Posted: 07/26/2019
The fenced yard was super although it was not mowed and the stickers nearly took over which by the end of our stay the dogs could not go in this area. Great home. Great kitchen. Loved that they had xfinity!! The hot tub did fade out the tee shirts that were worn in it but otherwise was a nice bonus- Terri P , Posted: 07/20/2019
We had a very good experience with Sand ‘N Sea several years prior. We worked with a consultant by telephone and were able to find the perfect match in one conversation.- William T , Posted: 07/20/2019
Great kitchen Fenced in yard for dog- Nancy T , Posted: 07/03/2019
Pet friendly with gated area, beachfront, hot tub- Janiece V , Posted: 06/18/2019
the inside is nice but the outside while it looks good needs some serious work and clean up. looks like the owners have not been there in a long time.- Geneva D , Posted: 05/29/2019
This beach house is beautiful. Very comfortable, plenty of room, well maintained and beautifully decorated. You know you're at the beach.- Isis M , Posted: 05/23/2019
This property has been one of the best beach houses we have stayed at. Access to the beach was extremely easy and that side of the beach was very clean. Also we had a pet and they had an area fenced in that was perfect. LOVED this house.- Virginia A , Posted: 05/13/2019

Loved the Crab Shack, we hated to leave. Great location with short walk to the beach. Area was quiet and peaceful, felt like you had your own private beach. The house is decorated very nice inside and was comfortable for our 5 adults and 3 children.- Curtis C , Posted: 08/24/2018

There was a couple of cleanliness issues nothing major. There was also a hurricane the days before so just the fact they had the place ready was a huge plus- Steve H , Posted: 09/05/2017
The Crab Shack is a wonderful home. Everything furnished was great and the house was so comfortable. Plenty of room for my adults kids and my 3 year old grandson. He was thoroughly impressed as well. The beach was so close and easy to get to. Thank you to the owners and Sand N Sea for taking such nice care of your home. We plan on coming back.- Lisa D , Posted: 08/26/2017
