Recent Reviews About This Property

"We had a nice stay. The plates in the cabinet were not all clean and the noise being so close to the main access road to the beach was a bit loud at times but overall, it was a nice place to stay. The water was shut off because of a water main break down the street but Sand N Sea was quick to bring us extra water till the water was turned back on a few hours later. Sand N Sea check in on us after the water was turned back on to see if we needed anything further. They were very nice and quick to respond to our needs. I also enjoy working with Sand N Sea!"

Sam H, 08/13/2018

"This property was great for our family’s weekend beach trip! We could see the ocean from living room and kitchen and sitting on the deck with our morning coffee was awesome. 8 mile road is pretty busy during the day, but we were down at the beach most of the time, so the traffic didn’t bother us much. Stickers in the yard, so just remove your shoes before coming inside. Other than that, we would definitely stay here again!"

Lindsay B, 06/25/2018

"Great location! Great air conditioning! Had all everything you need buut people and food! Great expirience!"

Amy R, 06/22/2018

"Loved sitting on the porch enjoying the gulf view and sunset. Cozy home, great for small family or retirees. Close to amenities and attractions on the Seawall. Excellent staff at Sand n’ Sea. They will address all your needs or concerns."

Ray M, 04/07/2018

"Beautiful views. Can't beat the location just steps from the beach."

Wes G, 12/27/2017

"Very nice place,Great ocean view. However there are LOTS of stickers in the yard...."

Sherry H, 07/31/2017

"This property is just the right size for a small family get-away of about 4-5. I am not sure how 8 could sleep comfortably in this house for a week, though. It is a busy area being off of 8 Mile Rd., and always entertaining for people-watching. Even though there is a home directly in front of the property, the views are not obstructed from the public access beach or shoreline. It was as if it was beachfront. "

Pamela M, 07/26/2017

"This is an awesome property and a great view. "

Phillip and Sherrie M, 07/18/2017

"Just be aware that the yard is full of stickers in the grass. Make sure you wear shoes. "

Allen S, 05/15/2017

"I love the house, the location, and the rental staff!"

from Kingwood, 11/11/2016

"This is a very nice small home, beautiful view of the beach, even with a home in front of it. It's a very short walk to the beach. Nice balcony for a morning cup of coffee."

T from Oklahoma City, 11/07/2016

"Had a great time! Perfect size for 4 people."

L from College Station, TX, 10/03/2016

"This is a GREAT house. We had 4 adults and our Boston Terrier. The only thing you might want to know is the yard is very nice & large but pretty much carpeted with stickers so children nor dogs can really run around and play in the yard. We walked our boy outside the property since his poor little paws kept getting covered in stickers but that's ok cause he LOVED his very first visit to the beach so he kept dragging us out of the yard anyway lol! We will DEFINITELY be renting this house again in the future!"

B from Ft. Worth, Texas, 09/23/2016

"This is a very nice property for a trip at the beach. Just a few feet to the ocean, or just sit on the porch and watch the waves."

Sharon O from Fort Worth Tx, 09/08/2016

"I LOVED this beach house! It is small, but very well laid out and appointed. For one or two couples, or a small family it is perfect. I normally insist on renting only beachfront, but this was last minute and it was just myself, my daughter and her dog for just three nights. We were very pleasantly surprised by the fabulous view and closeness to the beach; it felt beachfront, due to the fact that the one small house in front was slightly to the left of our front view, and Leisure Time has its living room wisely centered over the right side of the house, allowing for expansive views of the beach/ocean and the neighboring dunes. You really don't notice the house on row 1. Being the last week of summer, it was uncrowded so noise from the access road and beach parking was not an issue. Having the dog with us, I was worried about the public beach parking and cars in general, but thankfully only the beach to the right allows cars. The beach directly in front of the house and as far to the left as we could see was vehicle-free (with barriers), and quite clean. Sunny Beach is our new favorite beach in Galveston (so close to Seawall!), and we will definitely return to Leisure Time. Just a couple of suggestions for making this home truly a perfect rental: For true dog-friendliness, close in the fence for at least some of the yard! It was nice to have the grassy yard, but would have been so much nicer if the fencing had been complete so she could be left out to play for a bit. Also, some of the bed pillows/mattress cover need replacing; when I stripped the cases on our check-out day, I was a little dismayed to see the stains. Everything else was amazing: lots of fluffy white towels, a kitchen with everything imaginable, comfy furniture, great a/c, and fabulous views. Finally, working with Sand 'N Sea was pleasant and easy. Definitely will do it again."

Janine W from McGregor, TX, 08/22/2016

"For the price this is a great choice even being beachside not beachfront / great for 4 ppl. and dog / downstairs is perfect for evening grilling and chilling!"

C from Atascocita, TX., 07/30/2016

"Great property for small group and kids, however there was an issue with beach goers parking on the access road near the home. The noise level was high at times and foot traffic was a bit more than what we were use to from our past rental of this property. Overall.. the home was stocked with everything you need!! Just bring yourself and food... That's it!"

Doreatha from Houston, Tx, 07/14/2016

"My husband and I (and our 2 pooches) stayed at Leisure Time and absolutely LOVED it! It was perfect for our needs. I loved the way it was decorated, the layout, especially the kitchen. We really enjoyed spending time on the upstairs porch, with our dogs smelling all the interesting scents in the air, watching the birds and, best of all, the little hares! The view and location were great. We will definitely stay there again, and for a longer time!"

Stephanie from Stanford, 06/03/2016

"We enjoyed a lovely stay at LEISURE TIME."

K, 06/02/2016

"I would definitely recommend this vacation home to anyone visiting Galveston. Wonderful view, nice kitchen and other accommodations. Very clean. WiFi & cable were perfect."

from Kingwood, TX, 05/07/2016

"This house was perfect for us on our birthday vacation. We will be back in October for my wife's birthday getaway"

H from Hourston, Tx., 04/24/2016

"Beware of the noise and volume of traffic at the weekends, furniture is a bit run down, but it's a great view, overall we enjoyed it."

M from Richmond, Texas, 03/28/2016

"Leisure Time is an excellent beach house to rent. It's got wonderful views of the Gulf from the South and West sides of the house and is practically on the beach so it's easy to carry beach gear down. With it's covered deck, we could sit outside for hours and enjoy watching the activity on the beach."

H from Houston, TX, 10/18/2015

"Great location & wonderful accommodations!"

from Kingwood, 10/05/2015

"The home needs pots and pans to be updated. They are old and scratched up. There are no knives other than small butter or steak knifes. We had to go buy a knife to cut a watermelon and other melons while we were there. Over all the house was great and we would stay here again."

C from Akron, Colorado, 08/07/2015

Sand 'N Sea's Response

Hello Christen Family - We are glad you enjoyed Leisure Time! Please don't ever hesitate to contact our office during your stay if there's something we can do make your stay more enjoyable. We are always happy to provide additional/updated kitchen equipment!

"I have rented this property 3 times and it is an excellent vacation rental. Very close to beach. The kitchen is a little small, so if I would recommend any upgrades to this home it would be to expand the kitchen. It would help to make a shortcut walk to the beach instead of walking on the main road, but other than that.. This home is awesome! The traffic on the road gets busy on the weekend so just be aware that you this is not a quite property!"

Doreatha J from Houston, Texas, 07/18/2015

"Loved the location far enough out of busy Galveston, but still close to attractions. The large furniture in living area makes it little close for sitting around. We were only two couples and this worked great for us, but six might find it bit crowded. Loves watching the rabbits from the field net door"

Pat C from Livingston,TX, 07/14/2015

"Clean, excellent views and updated kitchen and baths. Only negative would be the traffic from the adjoining public beach."

B from Tyler, TX, 05/16/2015

"Although this is in the second row of beach houses, you'd never know it. Because of the placement of the house in front, you feel like you're beachfront. The house is nicely furnished with comfortable couches and beds. The only thing it didn't have was a potato peeler!! We will definitely stay here again."

M from Austin, Tx, 04/21/2015

"Love this beach house had a great view"

A from Buffalo Gap Tx, 03/06/2015

"Good location, not far from town. On the beach, near the gulf with good view. Well furnished with all necessary items. Easy to keep clean with tile floors, leather like furniture. Very pet convenient."

Jane L from Austin Tx., 10/28/2014

"You'll love it!"

from Kingwood, 09/20/2014

"Leisure Time is an awesome property. We have stayed here twice and love sitting on the deck listening to the waves! The yard was perfect for our dog!"

Sherrie M from Fort Smith AR, 09/08/2014

"House had a wonderful view from covered deck and front room and was close to beach, however the access to the beach was not easy for young children. Also, the house is very close to the public access road which increased the noise. We had 5 people and the space was very limited. Probably more comfortable for 4 and not 6 as listed."

D from Houston,TX, 08/05/2014

"It looks like there is an enclosed area for pets in the picture but it isn't enclosed all the way around. Although this is a 6 person rental, it is way too small. One bath opens into the living room which does not allow for much privacy."

D from Yoakum, TX, 07/15/2014

Sand 'N Sea's Response

Hello Dubois Family - We are sorry that there was any confusion about the partially fenced yard, and that the home didn't comfortably accommodate your group. Our Reservationists are always happy to help each of our guests find the perfect home for their Galveston vacation. When you are ready to start planning your next Island getaway, please be sure to call our office so we can find the perfect home for your group!

"Great beach property for a small family. Very clean and comfortable. Beautiful views of the ocean from the deck, we stayed there a lot and also in the ground level where you can find a wooden table and a grill to enjoy lunch with the ocean breeze. We loved that it has a fence, just be aware it is not completely closed. We managed to enclose it with a portable gate we brought with us. There is a public beach access right on the side and it can get really crowded and noisy but that was just on the weekend. Police was patrolling very often and no severe incidents happened during our stay. We'd love to rent it again!!!"

A from Coppell, TX, 06/24/2014

"The Leisure Time home was excellent. It was a perfect view for the ocean and a good size home. We had 6 adults and a child and was comfortable."

B from Arkansas, 06/09/2014

"This a perfect place for a couple or a small family. Because the second bath is off the living room, it wouldn't be my choice for 2 couples."

R from Georgetown, TX, 04/27/2014

"Very Clean, great home. Easy beach access with great views!"

R from Cypress, Tx, 12/01/2013

"This rental was so clean. View of Gulf from kitchen/livingroom/bedroom/bathroom. One side had pasture with cows - allowing more view of the Gulf. Covered front porch to look at Gulf & hear the waves. Great underneath with picnic table & parking. Just 3 minute stroll from property to feet in the water. Stayed 8 nites. Would love to come back during off season again - it was so quiet."

Donna Madewell W from Palestine, Texas, 11/18/2013

"You'll love this property during the off-season. We've never stayed here during peak times, but during the off-season it's very quiet and you almost have the beach to yourself."

L, 10/26/2013

"This is a terrific properly with a fabulous view. My family and I had a wonderful stay and will ask for this property when we rent again. You cannot find a better agency than Sand'n' Sea. Very clean and well maintained."

Michelle M, 09/14/2013

"Great location - beach view from the porch and steps away. House was clean and perfect for our family. The yard is not fully fenced."

Tim from Austin, TX, 08/26/2013

"Have rented this property a couple of times and a great property to rent. SandNSea really easy to work with, friendly staff, and expeditiate service with checking in/out. Couple of things to beware of concerning property is the yard is big, but not really kid friendly.( Many pricky things in the grass and was hard to even play in yard with kids due to the hard grass and pricky things). Also, the beach home directly in front of Leisure Time became a bit noisy as a youth group checked in. Deck of Leisure time is directly over the drive way/yard of the beach home in front where there was large gatherings which made quite moments on deck a little distracting. Other than that.. Will rent this property again and a fabulous home for small family. We enjoyed it immensley!"

Doe from Houston, Tx, 07/18/2013

"If you have a dog, watch them in the yard. There are MANY stickers. We have previously rented from a different company in Galveston, but SandNSea is MUCH!!! better!!!"

M from Fort Smith AR, 07/16/2013

"We will rent this house again! Great Location!!"

E from Cedar Hill, TX, 06/18/2013

"My Husband and my self enjoyed the property and look forward to coming back very soon!"

T, 06/03/2013

"Great views and perfect for a small family. This home is pet friendly which was great but the yard is not pet friendly(no enclosed gate). We would love to rent this property again!"

M from Carthage,Tx, 05/20/2013

"Great place to escape, great view of the gulf and very relaxing. My wife and I had a great long weekend with the puppies."

Ronnie & Liegh R from Conroe TX, 05/13/2013

"This was a wonderful getaway and we loved the location of our rental home!"

B from Austin Texas, 05/06/2013

"You'll enjoy this house & location."

AF , 04/22/2013

"This is a very comfortable well maintained pet friendly property. We rented over Easter weekend and while yes, as others have said, this property is along a public beach access, never was this a problem with noise or anything else. The house was great for us two (and our two cocker spaniels.) We had a dog gate that closed the driveway off, so the fenced in yard was completely fenced for the dogs to run around. Under the house was a great place to grill and hang out as well. All in all, the house worked perfect for us."

Sherry, Dave, Riley and Bentley from Dallas, TX, 04/01/2013

"This is a small house but it worked well for our family of 5. It's cute and well-maintained and it has fantastic views of the beach. The wireless internet was super fast and the downstairs grill/picnic table was great! The yard is not completely fenced and it is hard to tell this from the photos online. The public access road got a little loud at times but there was a constant police presence and it was fun to watch all the families on the beach from the deck. Sunny Beach is a great little neighborhood close to downtown with great empty stretches of undeveloped land on either side. I loved this house and will definitely plan to rent it again."

D from Houston, 03/17/2013

"This property is an excellent place to relax and play in the sand. Easy beach access with a great view."

S from Houston, TX, 12/26/2012

We love dogs.

"For 4 people, or even 2, this is the perfect place to stay. We highly recommend this location and we will stay here again, hopefully, on our return to Galveston."

, 10/13/2012

"This place was just right for what we wanted. We came with 3 people and one dog and we all had plenty of room. Enjoyed it very much. Did not want to leave. We will be back :)"

Sabine from Dallas TX, 09/08/2012

"Don't let the fact that there is a public beach access road by the house. Most of the folks who came to the public beach were families or men looking to do some fishing. All were very respectful of the fact there were private homes near by. The house has a really nice location and a very short walk to the beach. Great view from the deck to enjoy your morning coffee."

S from Houston TX, 08/14/2012


Gina B from Houston, Texas, 05/29/2012

"This is a great little beach house, public and private beach areas, you can enjoy your pets and the covered area under the home has the best breeeze and views of the beach and ocean. There is also an outdoor shower to clean off the sand before going inside. There are grills available to use, picnic table, chairs. Very clean & relaxing home. Even though it is next to the public access road it is still in a great location and close to everything you need as fas as restaurants and shopping. We enjoyed it and will return."

Sandra I from Webster TX, 05/21/2012

"I would recommend this house for off season and weekdays. The beach traffic on weekends or holidays is crazy busy. The police did a very good job keeping it under control on Easter Sunday."

C from Frisco, Texas, 04/14/2012

"Fabulous location off of the beaten track. Wonderful deck to watch the sun rise and literally steps to the beach."

P from Houston, TX, 12/19/2011

"Excellent property the only concern which was noted by another guest is the number of people in the evenings that access the beach at all hours of the night otherwise excellent home."

M from Houston, Texas, 10/24/2011

"Just let them know that it's located next to a busy street and public beach area. Like I said earlier, it was quite entertaining at times, but if someone is looking for a quiet, peaceful vacation, this is not the place!"

Angela M from Palestine, Texas, 10/10/2011

"Leisure Time is the nicest beach rental I've experienced. Excellent location but best to rent during the week while school is in session if you prefer solitude. I definitely will rent the property again."

C. T from Houston, TX, 09/21/2011

"Great location and view. Very comfortable for small family."

N. B from Savannah, TX, 09/08/2011

"This house is a perfect location...close enough to walk to the beach....great view!"

Z from Crosby, TX, 08/30/2011

"We had a wonderful time at this beachhouse. It has a good location and all the amentities one would need. This place was convenient, cute, and nice. The only drawback was people getting stuck at the beach entrance nearby. Some people got stuck and asked for our help because we were the corner house, it was fine the first time, but later u want to ignore them. Either way this place was sooo worth it, would totally go back."

t from houston, texas, 08/27/2011

"A great spot on the beach! Although there is a public access road next to the property, noise was never an issue. Also, the beach was much less crowded than other areas near town. There was always plenty of room to fish, swim, or do anything else at the beach without getting in anyone's way. Nice place, but I wouldn't sleep more than 4 there."

"Please confirm if house has internet access before purchasing individually to save money. There is a wireless router in the house. Consider the activity on the beach service road. The house is in a good spot, but cars were skidding out on the sand and could cause a potential danger hazard for the house since it's at the corner. There should be a side entrance gate to walk to the beach. Overall the house was set up nicely and the bedding and bathrooms were hotel quality."

Sand 'N Sea's Response

We apologize, we didn't realize that there was wireless internet at the house. Thank you for letting us know, we've corrected the amenity list. And we are very sorry about the beach traffic!

"Great little house but public beach access is a HUGE negative. I would rent from Sand & Sea again, just not Leisure Time."

Sand 'N Sea's Response

We are sorry that the beach was so busy that weekend. It's a great house and when it's a busy weekend, Leisure Time is a great spot for guests who enjoy people watching. Also, keep in mind that it's very quiet in the off-season.

"The home was well maintained and newly updated. Bedding was hotel quality, with internet and large flat screen TV. We had many hours of enjoyment on the enclosed deck overlooking the beach. However, the house is right next to a public beach access road, so if you do not enjoy beach entertainment than this may not be house for you, we enjoyed it all except the occasional loud car music."
