Every room has a spectacular view of the beach.- Terry and Cathy A , Posted: 07/07/2020
The location of this property is wonderful. The home needs some updating, but other than that, Hantel is great!- Caryn C , Posted: 05/30/2020
Excellent living space for a family gathering!- Judy L , Posted: 06/12/2019
Roomy house with great sea views and extremely close to beach. Only con was no window coverings-only storm shades.- Catherine B , Posted: 05/30/2019
Numerous good experiences with you folks.- Henry O , Posted: 05/28/2019
The house is big, quiet, and feels like it is on the front row (closest to the beach) because of its angled format.- Sharon M , Posted: 05/29/2018
The TV was not working at the time of our check-in. However, AT&T was called, and it was fixed by mid-day the next day. Overall, the beach house was as expected based on the description, and the property managers checked in with us to make sure we were happy.- Lorin C , Posted: 10/23/2017
Wonderful house! Perfectly clean - well equipped kitchen - no bugs - comfy furnishings - beautifully kept and well managed!- Sharon D , Posted: 07/18/2017
Having construction both across the street and next door was not optimum. However, noise was not an issue.- Carrie P , Posted: 06/13/2017
Excellent property! Looks nice in the pictures but is even better in person. Great views and a short walk to the beach! My family had a great time here!- Julie A , Posted: 06/05/2017
Very beautiful home. Very cozy.- Anonymous from Houston, Posted: 09/26/2016
The Hantel is a wonderful beach house for a family - the floorpan provides privacy for a family with children, but plenty of common space and a vary useable deck. We loved this house, and will specifically choose it again! Comfortable furnishings and a really complete kitchen with lots of dishes, glasses and cookware. Elegant master suite bedroom with breathtaking beach view and very comfortable king bed. The beach is about 20 steps away - you don't even need your flip flops to get there! This is a perfect Galveston beach home! Well-maintained, well-managed, great location!- Sharon D from Houston, Posted: 09/13/2016
Awesome views with an open floor plan in a desirable location.- Anonymous H from Houston, Posted: 06/01/2016
The Hantel is a lovely home and accommodated three couples who celebrate New Years together every year. Warm and comfortable, we enjoyed staying there but would warn those who are looking for a rental property, there are no hand rails on the stair cases inside the house.- Anonymous B from Houston, TX, Posted: 01/04/2016
Stairs do not have hand railings.- Anonymous from Texas, Posted: 10/27/2015
Great property......amazing beach access. Views that can't be matched! Love the shutters that you can lower at night for ultimate privacy and security, then raise them at sun-up for a panoramic view from every room.- Anonymous H from Dallas, Texas, Posted: 09/26/2015
Such a lovely place with a great location! We rented this for a family reunion - 5 of us staying in the house (3 adults & 2 kids) - 25 of us in total on the beach and for dinner. Great space and views.- Ingrid J from Cincinnati, Ohio, Posted: 08/02/2015
Great house! Amazing view!- Anonymous from Shreveport, Posted: 07/15/2015
The Hantel was a beautiful home with plenty of space. Excellent views. Would definitely rent this place again.- Dawn K from Mont Belvieu, Tx, Posted: 05/18/2015

2nd house from the waterfront and delightful in all respects.- Anonymous G from Houston, Texas, Posted: 08/13/2013
Although this property is considered on the a "second row" home, the view and access to the beach were fantastic!! We loved the property. We have stayed with Sand n Sea numerous times and all at remarkable properties, but this property was probably the most enjoyable of our stays. We will request this one again!!- Don from Livingston, Tx, Posted: 11/05/2012
This home has the most awesome view of the beach and water. Sunrise was gorgeous. Would absolutely stay here again. Our family loved it.- Anonymous T from RIchmond TX, Posted: 04/10/2012
Great value! This is not your typical old-school beach rental. Hantel House feels modern and fresh with attractive architecure and up to date decor. Beautiful views from all rooms.- Anonymous T from La Grange, Texas, Posted: 01/23/2012
Perfect location; fanmtastic views/access to the beach; great TV's in common/master bedroom; wonderful "goodie bag" on arrival; great room size/total square footage for 7 - 10 people.- Paul D from Houston, Tx, Posted: 09/20/2011
We loved Hantel - right on the beach is great - not far to carry chairs etc. to the beach. We loved it. We loved our stay - had a great time and such beautiful weather.- bobbi A from Houston TX, Posted: 09/13/2011
Great property with a great location. Had a wonderful time.- Anonymous from Houston, Texas, Posted: 08/22/2011
We really loved this house. It is practically beachfront--the deck is amazing. Loads of room to stretch out. The upstairs loft area is actually a great place for the kids to hang out and watch videos away from the center of the house.- Pauline B from La Jolla, California, Posted: 07/14/2011
The house is close to two other houses we rented for our family reunion, and is very close to the beach. The only thing that didn't work was the telephone and it was fixed temporarily, but then went bad again. We loved all 3 houses, especially Hantel and Flip Flop because they're back to back to each other and just 2 houses from the beach.- Anonymous G from Houston, Texas, Posted: 07/07/2011
