So well appointed and comfortable! Lots of toys and beach stuff available for guest use. House is so well decorated!- Toni C , Posted: 07/31/2021
Just Joy is the perfect retreat. It’s close to the beach, close to fun activities but far enough away to feel remote, and incredibly well-appointed. This was the perfect family vacation home and we hope to return!- dave n , Posted: 07/11/2021
Such a great house! Well stocked and beautiful views! Our family loved staying here!- Shannon G , Posted: 07/03/2021
Most well equipped house we have rented in years! We should have left half of the things we packed home. Very clean.- tom m , Posted: 06/20/2021
Simply put , just a wonderful vacation home . The property is delightfully decorated . The owners thought of everything beach goers might need . Location is excellent and the home is very clean . We will definitely rent this home again in the future.- William Y , Posted: 05/24/2021
Beautiful home stocked with everything you would ever need and lots of personal touches ! Awesome, quiet location. A wonderful, relaxing get away!- Cheryl K , Posted: 04/08/2021
Just Joy is an excellent name for this property...it was a Joy! It was very clean, comfortable, and . nicely decorated. Our grandchildren enjoyed riding bikes and scooter in the cul-de-sac, there was lots of sand toys, wagon, chairs downstairs for us. It is just a short walk over the walkway to the beach (which had no cars)The Kitchen was amazingly supplied with anything and everything you could possibly need. The beds were very comfortable, with lots of extra pillows and blankets too! I really can't think of anything we needed at Just Joy ...except more time there! We will definitely stay here again! Thanks to the owners for a lovely place for a family vacation!- Lizabeth S , Posted: 01/05/2021
Beautiful, well-maintained home with lots of "extras" that were much appreciated. Great views, lovely neighborhood. Our only "personal preference" issue was that the beds were too soft for our old bones ;-); other than that everything was great. Would definitely rent again!- Joy L , Posted: 11/10/2020
The perfect family vacation rental!- Seth and Brynn F , Posted: 10/06/2020
We keep coming back to Just Joy while in Galveston. Great home and great location.- rueann G , Posted: 09/11/2020
Our stay at Just Joy was incredible. A lovely environment to relax and enjoy time together. This home is so fresh, well appointed and very comfortable. We will definitely return!! We couldn't be more pleased and are still talking about what a great time we had. The closets are a great size as are the bedrooms. Plenty of seating indoors and out. The natural light is wonderful. We spent a lot of time on the balconies. Upstairs for star gazing is spectacular. All of the appliances worked well. Super close beach access ramp. We appreciated the well maintained grounds. Loved, loved, loved everything about Just Joy.- Laura S , Posted: 08/27/2020
Very nice property - loved the fact that the home provided everything that we needed - kitchen items, outdoor toys, etc..- Jackson P , Posted: 08/18/2020

Beautiful home with a great view and beach access. Felt like home. Many extra touches - children books/toys, beach chairs/toys which made packing for the trip easy. Love it! Thank you for sharing your home.- rueann G , Posted: 12/02/2019
1st time to rent a beach house.
The home was beautiful. Everything was available in kitchen and outside. However for the price of this home the beds all mattresses were terrible and need replacing.- Gaynell H from Friendswood, Posted: 09/21/2019

Beautiful views with many thoughtful extras.- jeffery d , Posted: 07/16/2019
This house is beautiful and well decorated. Great views from both decks. Short walk over the dunes.- Kristi S , Posted: 07/10/2019
I would definitely recommend Sand and Sea to anyone needing a rental home. The view was great, location easy to get to, and a reasonable rate.- Margaret M from Tomball, TX, Posted: 09/06/2016
Great house. Beds were comfortable, view was good, and the kitchen supplies were well stocked. Enjoyed both decks with the upper deck providing needed shade for the lower deck. Only problem was ants on the path to the beach. Nice clean beach.- Anonymous R from Spring, Texas, Posted: 07/09/2016
My family of 10 stayed here for our annual family vacation!! Other than being a ways from stores and such, it was a beautiful house! Very clean and pretty! It isn't considered Beachfront, but it basically is!! There are two houses I front of this one, but the way they are positioned puts this home right up there for a gorgeous morning view! They have all amenities needed in order to have a stress free break! Make sure to bring the OFF, though!- Anonymous M from Dallas, TX, Posted: 09/19/2015
Very nice interior, great detail to trim and paint, nice and clean. Great layout, plenty of room, great bathrooms. Nice view, quite beach. Would definitely rent again.- Anonymous G from Pasadena, TX, Posted: 09/02/2015
Lovely, comfortable home. There were 10 of us (5 adults, 5 pre-teen / teen) and we all had plenty of space. Only disappointment was the poor quality of the mattresses.- Anonymous , Posted: 07/25/2015
We absolutely loved our stay here. They had everything we needed for our family vacation. The view was nice, the beach was clean and the property management company was a pleasure to work with. Just a few snags with things in the house- bed comfort wasn't the best and a few minor snags with some repairs needed. Overall we had a fantastic vacation and will definitely come back again and for sure use Sand N Sea Vacation Rentals.- Tammy from Santa Fe, TX, Posted: 07/11/2015
I liked the location of this house. This house was about as far as you could go on the west end but was worth the drive. The boardwalk was close and was over dunes covered in wildflowers and many types native plants. This beach was clean and wide and had very few people on it. The house was more like a home than a rental. Living room had new furniture and a great view. The beds were comfortable and the house was very clean. Both decks had great views. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation away from crowds this is the house for you.- Anonymous R from North Mississippi, Posted: 06/16/2015
Great home for a family, close to the beach!- Anonymous G from plano Texas, Posted: 03/15/2015
Great beach views from all decks of this beach rental and easy/quick beach access due to sand dune board walk locate short distant from to house.- Anonymous R from Beaumont, Texas, Posted: 08/11/2014
found my stay at Sand and Sea to be excellent. Family really enjoyed the stay. Like the fact that the beach area was limited to visitors so was not packed and able to get up early and enjoy walks.- Melvin H from Memphis TN, Posted: 05/28/2014
Excellent property and neighborhood. We enjoyed having a long table for big family meals. The house layout fit us perfectly (2 families + grandma). The neighborhood was friendly and quiet. The beach was raked every evening. Would recommend.- Anonymous M from Houston, TX, Posted: 04/22/2014
I was greeted promptly and with kindness when I checked in. All questions were answered and I felt very comfortable. The house was awesome. I will use Sand 'N Sea again in the future!- Ami S from San Antonio, TX, Posted: 11/05/2012
The location of the property was perfect. We had 4 generations of family and enjoyed the easy beach access. House was plenty large to accomadate our group. A/C worked like a charm...no issues at all with this property.- Anonymous C from Houston, Texas, Posted: 09/04/2012
The home was very roomy and functional for the 10 of us, which included 6 kids all over the age of 10! The large kitchen/dining area and open floorplan allowed for great family time. Access to the beach boardwalk was basically at our back door and considering this is not a beach front home, it could be labeled as such. Great views of the beach! We will definetly back!- Anonymous T , Posted: 08/21/2012
This was our first time to rent from Sand'N Sea and it was an excellent experience. Very easy & quick check-in and check-out! The staff was super friendly and helpful! We had no issues at the 'Sea Forever' beach house and had a wonderful time. We had a house-full with kids and adults, and this house accomodated us all very well. It was clean, a perfect location with an ocean view from both deck levels. The kids loved it and insisted we come back next year! We enjoyed the hammock, too!- Anonymous B from Houston,TX, Posted: 06/16/2012
Six adults and four kids. Kids stayed in one room. Great ocean views, nice decks, very short walk to beach. Pool was close and uncrowded. Overall, a great place to stay. No complaints.- Anonymous W from Southlake, Tx, Posted: 06/09/2012
My family and I commend you for the professional standards and dedication of the staff at Sand N' Sea. Your attention to our needs and request ensured that our stay was most enjoyable and relaxing. We are looking forward to our next visit.- Anonymous H from Houston, Texas, Posted: 11/27/2011
VERY, VERY, comfortable with small children. It was our "Home away from home." We truly had a perfect vacation at Sea Forever! The weather was wonderful for the entire week with a continuous beach breeze. God is good…- Kerri M from McKinney, TX, Posted: 07/16/2011
Beautiful house in an amazing location! Sit on the deck and watch the world go by. This home has an great view and is in easy walking distance to the beach. The inside of the house is very nice and had plenty of room, even with a herd of children running around. Highly recommended!- Anonymous J from Houston, TX, Posted: 07/14/2011
We loved the house and the location. The beach was great - not much seaweed on the sand and very little in the water. The A/C worked beautifully the whole week - not even a hiccup in keeping the house cool during the hot, hot weather. We were just sad that we couldn't spend the whole summer there. The house was very comfortable and our family had plenty of space.- Anonymous B from Crockett, TX, Posted: 07/07/2011
