Debi M, 05/21/2018

"This house was amazing for 3 generations to gather and enjoy beautiful Galveston. Kitchen was well stocked and furnishings were comfortable. We will stay here again for sure!"

Michelle R, 02/26/2018

"we love the location of the house. this is our 2nd year in a row to stay there"

Kathy R, 06/20/2017


"Great location, fully stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, beautiful view. We really enjoyed our stay. Loved that it is pet friendly. We would come back and stay here again!"

Lynn C from Houston, 05/17/2017

"Great location. The building is a bit run down, especially the area below the house needs cleanup."

Rosette V, 04/25/2017

"Excellent location. Amenities were more than adequate. Beds are comfortable. So glad that each bedroom had their own bathroom. Great place to stay."

Edith D, 04/17/2017

"Osprey Watch is fairly well maintained and furnished compared to other properties we have rented in Galveston. Sunny Beach is clean and even though it's close to a pocket park, it's not too crowded. The location is great, only 3 miles to the seawall, shopping and restaurants."

Charles F from Houston, TX, 08/16/2016

"This is an amazing family vacation house to rent for a large family but not particularly child friendly, no bunk beds or room to add a bed in any room except the master bedroom. Location is great - very close to Galveston and amenities/shops etc. We love the beach view and the fact that the owner has purchased the lots on either side of the house ensuring complete privacy and extra parking space."

Anthony S from Houston. Texas, 07/10/2016

"Great location"

, 06/23/2016

"This is a fabulous house for a large group! Large living area with extra large table for eating and playing games. Kitchen was big enough for 3 of us to prepare dinner together!"

G from Wichita Falls, Texas, 06/15/2016

"Our family gathered for a week long Mother's Day! 3 generations plus my Son-In-Law's Mom. Hoping we can make it a yearly event! The ultimate complement to the owners.....Wish I could buy YOUR "Osprey Watch"!! Osprey Watch was perfect! Beachfront....location, location, location, with multiple decks to eat, relax, or play games. Large kitchen stocked with plenty utensils and any necessary appliances. Loved the multiple TV's and players in other rooms, when you need a little "ME" time."

Rebecca G from Galveston, Texas, 05/10/2016

"Wonderful view and beach access. Has everything you need, including space."

D, 03/20/2016

"The home was very nicely furnished and had one of the best views. Easy access to the beach with maintained yard area to walk dogs. Kitchen was more than well equipped with everything anyone could possibly ever need. Porches had plenty of seating for large number of people as well as living and dining area. Very comfortable for 10 people."

Joanne W, 12/28/2015

"Beatifully appointed home in excellent location, works well for a family or couples looking for a reunion or get away."

EH , 11/17/2015

"Very nice beach house. Roomy and a view of the beach. Plenty of bathrooms."

Jim from Clear Lake Texas, 11/09/2015

"Loved staying at this house. It was perfect for our family vacation. Plenty of room if we all wanted to be together yet still some place different we could all go for time alone. It is a beautiful home with a wonderful view."

Sofia from Odessa TX, 08/31/2015

"Osprey Watch has many decorative touches that I would only expect to see in a non-rental property. We have come to think of it as our home once a year."

S from Spring, TX, 08/05/2015

"This property is very accommodating! Kitchen very well stocked with eating and cooking utensils, all 3 upstairs bed rooms each with their own bathroom and shower, beautiful decks and chairs already in place, outside shower, and lots of beach toys allowed for use and enjoyment. Our family had a great time and was everything a vacation is meant to be!"

M from Pearland, TX, 07/28/2015

"Osprey Watch was a perfect house for us. The location was perfect and it had great views of the gulf. The kitchen was well equipt. There was nothing lacking. Everyone in our extended family kept saying this was the best house we have rented so far. It fit our family perfectly."

T from Houston and Dallas, Texas, 07/21/2015

"Amazing house for family vacation. No properties on either side of the house, so felt very private. Great lower deck for BBQ's and hanging out as so much room with constant sea breeze. sleeping accommodation for 10 people - so good for a couple of families. No bunk beds for small children, but ideal for families with grown up kids."

S from Kingwood, Texas, 07/13/2015

"it is a lovely home, well furnished with nice furniture and all the appliances you could possibly need. beautiful d_cor."

f from league city, texas, 06/27/2015

"Beautifully decorated and maintained home with beach access and gorgeous view. Really you only need to bring your personal effects, food, and beach towels. The home is fully stocked! We loved the fact that our dogs were welcomed and even got their own food water bowls. By far the best beach rental home we have ever stayed in. We had the time of our lives during our daughter's medical school graduation. Plus access to Moody Gardens was a straight shot. Outstanding home and customer service from Sand 'N Sea."

P from Georgetown Texas, 06/03/2015

"Spacious...plenty of bathrooms..!"

T from Houston, TX, 05/15/2015

"Wonderful house on the beach. Close to everything in Galveston. House does need a good cleaning, though."

D from Carthage, TX, 04/20/2015

Sand 'N Sea's Response

Hello Darnell Family - We are glad you had a great time at Osprey Watch! We were sorry to hear that there were any issues with the housekeeping at the home. We are always happy to address any issues that arise - just give us a call during your stay so we can get you taken care of!

"Enjoyed the wildlife, including snakes and birds, fabulous."

S from Hertford UK, 04/15/2015

"This was our third stay at Osprey Watch and we LOVE it. We are 2 couples and 2 singles, so plenty of room. The kitchen has everything we ever need for cooking group meals, even slow cookers! Beautiful view of the water from the raised Adirondack chairs."

Jacobsons from Austin, TX, 10/20/2014

"My entire family really enjoyed this awesome beach house, we call it ours. We gave our parents a anniversary gathering and it was very clean and they love their own private deck. My father whom was just excited about the stay is no longer here with us, but he talked about this place until he departed. thank you Sand n Sea for an awesome life expereince."

T from Houston, texas, 09/18/2014

"Very nice property for a family vacation. Easy access to the beach and close to Galveston. Reserved it again for next year."

R from Houston, TX, 08/12/2014

"This property was well taken care of, very clean, organized, and well maintained. I would rent this property again."

H from BANGOR NEW YORK, 03/17/2014

"This is a wonderful property. The home is very clean and has a very large selection of kitchen utensils, dishes, serving dishes, and pots/pans! The view is very nice, just a little hard to work your way to the beach through the neighbors side yard. The master is awesome, the other 3 bedrooms are a bit small, but comfortable! The home is close to the main seawall area (10 minutes) so that you can easily access grocery shopping, restaurants, etc. We throughly enjoyed staying at Osprey Watch!"

A, 12/16/2013

"Filled all our needs from sleeping , eating, to having fun. The view is perfect and the ameniteis outstanding . Will definetly be back."

G from Houston, 11/13/2013

"Osprey Watch is a wonderful place for a family vacation. Close to downtown and the resturants, right on the beach and decks to soak up the sun. Home is beautiful and very confortable."

P from Humble TX, 10/27/2013

"Great house. Plenty of room for everyone. Located right on beach."

Arnold and Karen S from Houston, Tx, 08/20/2013

"Osprey Watch is our favorite rental. We love that it is Beachfront and yet convenient to Moody Garden, Schlitterbahn and the boardwalk. Great kitchen with EVERY small appliance needed, the dual coffee pot was great for our crowd. The house is always clean and well maintained. A/C works great! The staff at Sand N Sea are the BEST, from booking to checkout and everything in between. Hands down the best rental company on the island."

M from Houston, TX, 06/18/2013

"Lack of disposal. No tub or shower for guests occupying downstairs sleeping accommodations. Three full baths upstairs, but only a half bath downstairs."

T from Houston, TX and Estes Park, CO., 04/12/2013

"This home is a MUST SEE AND STAY!! Very clean, furnishing are very nice and fun and this home comes with everything your can imagine. The kitchen had more pots, pans and utensils than our own home. You will NOT want to leave this home!!!"

PB , 04/02/2013

"This house is over the top, we felt like we were at home as this house is similar to ours in many ways. The furnishings were really nice and FUN!! The house is well loved by the owners and it shows. It was VERY clean, usually I'm cleaning a condo or home before we settle in but not here. Sand and Sea's house keeping did a great job of welcoming us. Our stay was fantastic. We just got back home yesterday and my kids were so sad to be waking up in Houston today and not in this home in Galveston. My family had a very special time here and we will not soon forget this trip and this very special home. The photos are great online but does not do it justice. As must see and stay!!! Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us. We can't wait to go back!!"

T, 04/02/2013

"The house was wonderful. There were alot of people on the beach not from the surrounding beach houses but from the public part of the beach which made the beach a bit crowded."

C from Houston, TX, 03/18/2013

"What a fun place for a vacation. It was the perfect house for our group of two couples, three little boys and a small dog. The common areas were large enough to accomodate the group and the bedroom/bathroom situation gave everyone the privacy they needed. The house is equiped with everything you might need in the kitchen. The location is the best - far enough away to feel peaceful but close to town when you want some action. We will be back!"

Tracee T from Housron Texas, 03/16/2013

"This house is perfectly set up for an extended family group. The common areas are a perfect size and the bedroom and bathroom situation lets everyone have their privacy. We will be back for sure!"

T from Houston Texas, 03/16/2013

"Best house we have ever rented. Plenty of room for our dogs. It is close in so the museums were easy to get to, beach access was quick and the location is very quiet. The home is beautiful and we will definitely rent this one again."

Pat and Mike C from Bellville, TX, 02/18/2013

"Osprey Watch is excellent for multiple adult couples. We celebrated Christmas with our adult boys and their girls, our new grandson and a dog, plus had overnight visitors on three nights. Plenty of room, very comfortable for all. The extra front den was very handy for storing Christmas stuff, wrapping, Nintendo, etc. Being close to town is a real plus, as previously mentioned by others. Kind of odd that the downstairs bath adjoining the downstairs bedroom does not have a shower or tub, but we just shared our Master bath with whoever was staying down there and it wasn't an issue. Also as previously mentioned, read the notes on what to bring, they are very helpful. If you are an audiophile, bring your own sound system. Great house!"

B from Houston, Dallas, and Austin, Texas, 12/30/2012

"The fact that all three upstairs bedrooms have private baths is ideal for adult couples. Two Jacuzzi tubs are a bonus and the master bath is a large spa-like wonder that even has a private deck on the north side of the house. (An upstairs deck on the beach side also fronts two bedrooms including the master.) This house is close to town which I didn't think would matter but was actually quite convenient. No cars are allowed on the beach and we loved this house. We've already booked it for next year."

S from Houston and Dallas, 08/21/2012

"We have been renting beach houses on the Island for over 10 years, and I believe Osprey Watch is the best one we have ever rented. We loved the outdoor shower and the storage area under the stairs where we kept our beach toys and chairs and charcoal. The kitchen and living area were spacious and lovely. It never felt crowded even though we were celebrating a birthday and a graduation. The dining room table was huge and beautiful. We loved the flat screen TV and the DVD player. We rented the house while the 2012 London Olympics were on and we simply loved watching it as a family. The house has a full washer and dryer which were quiet and dependable. We loved this house and will probably rent it again."

T from Bellaire, TX, 08/09/2012

"House was gorgeous. We were able to use the study as a fifth bedroom and loved the extra en suite bathroom and additional half bath. So much space surrounding the house and loved the outdoor shower with hot and cold water. We have booked for next year!"

S from Kingwood, Texas, 07/10/2012

"Great location! Amazing view! Close to grocery, shopping and restaurants but just far enough from the heavy beach crowds. Plenty of bathrooms, comfy bedrooms, everything you need and more in the kitchen. Cold A/C, cools quickly despite big group and everyone going in and out all day. Great for multi-family gathering. Would recommend this rental to anyone. Fished, swam, played, combed the beach, napped, ate like kings, laughed much; everyone hated to leave! Many thanks to the staff at Sand N' Sea for another great vacation."

M from Cypress, TX, 06/19/2012

"This property was way more than we expected.The furnishing and amenities were great.The kitchen has plenty of pots,pans,and dishes.All were of good quality.The beds were very comfortable and the house is updated and modern.It was stated that there was beach access next to the property,when in reality it is two houses away.We had a house full and had plenty of room and balcony space.Great house!"

G from Dallas,Texas, 05/29/2012

"The house was lovely. There was so much room for us to store all our things- didn't have to leave things sitting out in the kitchen. Nice large pantry and closet. I wish the main den area had more comfy funiture. Rattan looks nice but not as snuggly as upolstered furniture. Overall we loved the house and would stay there again!"

C from Clear Lake, 03/12/2012

"Great beach house. Comfortable beds, beautiful view of sunrise - especially from the second story balcony. Be sure to read the list of things to bring; we were glad we did!"

B from Cypress, TX, 12/31/2011

"This was the nicest pet friendly property we have rented! Great floorplan!"

Marsha D from Lewisville, Texas, 11/14/2011

"Celebrated a spectacular 60th Birthday Party with five of my dearest friends. We had a blast!! Thank you Osprey Watch, a beautiful well-appointed home."

Kit B from Austin, Tx., 10/11/2011

"This home was a great vacation get away. Pet friendly is what helped us make our decision along with the pictures of the home online. I drove by the property before I put our deposit down, but was unable to look inside as it was leased out at the time I made reservation. The home looks just like it does online if not better!"

S from Liverpool, TX, 09/12/2011

"Great house to stay in. Very comfortable. Was worried about being too close to drive on beach access but it was no trouble at all."

Paul C from The Woodlands, TX, 09/06/2011

Sand 'N Sea's Response

Hello Paul, Thank you for your feedback! Each of our homes does receive regular pest control maintenance visits. Unfortunately, due to the rural nature of the West End, additional visits are sometimes required. Our Property Services department is always happy to help during your stay!

"Osprey Watch lived up to every expectation I had after viewing the virtual tour of this property. It is beautifully decorated with many little touches that fit right in with the beach atmosphere. I definitely hated to leave this house and hope to return soon."

P. S from Spring, TX, 08/31/2011

"great home we really enjoyed our time. the lone comment is that beach access is somewhat tricky for this property. there is no bridge over the dune to access the beach, which this property fronts, and therefore we were forced to walk around another property for access. this was somewhat uncomfortable as we always felt we were encroaching on someone elses land"

A from Houston TX, 08/09/2011

"We enjoyed the property very much. We liked the location. The house was furnished nicely and the view was great. I would rent it again."

D from Vernon,Tx, 08/02/2011

"The location of this house is perfect, sitting right on the beach. Full size washer and dryer which now that I know this, I could have really cut down on packing. We all were delighted and will return."

E from Kansas City, MO, 07/06/2011

"Beautiful property! Best outfitted kitchen of any beach house we have ever stayed in. The deck chairs were extremely comfortable - located on both balconies. Spacious bedrooms with private bath in each of the upstairs rooms."
