Beautiful and peaceful and safe for family to enjoy- Katie S , Posted: 08/23/2021
The Palmetto is a great house. It was our 2nd time to stay in it. Open spacious home with plenty of sleeping accommodations. Beautiful beach view and easy access to the beach- MICHAEL P , Posted: 05/18/2021
Really nice property with excellent view and easy access to the beach..- Cheri H , Posted: 04/08/2021
Beautiful beach house with views of beach and Gulf from every room. Comfortable furniture and beds with plenty of room and fully stocked kitchen. Sweet!- Ellen A , Posted: 03/20/2021
Our stay at Palmetto was great and the house was excellent on all major points: good a/c; comfortable beds, plenty of towels, well-stocked kitchen (even stock pots for cooking shrimp), stable WiFi, and management responsiveness when I had a repair issue. Only slightly negative comments are that the deck furniture arms are not comfortable due to fraying of the "rattan"; the dining table does not expand and there are only 4 chairs, 7 if you look around the house; and we received notice rather late that we could have no more than 4 cars parked on property, which necessitated some scrambling for the commute. All of these things were minor in the total great picture. I have some info for future renters that I wish I had known in advance (none of these are criticisms, just FYI): there is one K cup coffee pot, and one 5-cup drip; the toaster oven does not have a tray (use foil); the coffee mugs are really small, but the wine glasses are generous!; the refrigerator has filtered water and makes adequate ice; there is a port-a-crib in one upper bedroom closet; be aware if you have a toddler that the gate does not latch on the first porch; there are books & games; the fireplace is marked non-working; the official beach access is in the middle of the block, but unofficially, there is an easement not far from the house that has a well-worn foot path; the area does not recycle; hoses to wash off sand downstairs and on the first porch; the outside shower is nice, but mosquitoes hang out there pending breeding season; Seven Seas grocery about ½ mile away is quite well stocked; if it's raining go see the historic films at the Pier 31 theatre; not far from there you can buy fresh seafood on Harbourside drive (but same price at Seven Seas); and Magic Carpet Golf is cash only. Wonderful home, and we hope to rent again!- Sue F , Posted: 10/18/2020
This house is very nice and couldn’t have a better view. Will easily accommodate what it says. Highly recommend this home- mike p , Posted: 08/18/2020
Wonderful home- this was our third rental of this home and will do so again.- Vera L , Posted: 08/09/2020
Very clean and perfectly suited to what expectations,- Charles H , Posted: 08/01/2020
This house has lots of room for families and a fabulous view. We’ve stayed here before and would stay again.- April G , Posted: 07/04/2020
This home was beautiful, great location, and I'd highly recommend it. It is in a great location right by the beach. The kitchen had everything you could need to cook and the beds were very comfortable. Great home.- Heather G , Posted: 06/02/2020
Awesome view, great beach access, house set up great for multiple couples, amenities were great!! Easy access,- Charlotte W , Posted: 10/23/2019
Great Stay at Palmetto
Palmetto worked well for our family. The bedding is dated and the upstairs beds are doubles, not queens. The view is fabulous however beach access can be a problem.- Joe B from Houston, Posted: 08/21/2019
Hi Joe! Our Property Services team has double checked, and we were able to confirm that the upstairs beds are definitely all queens.- Sand 'N Sea Properties, Posted: 08/29/2019
Home has a great view of the beach from all rooms! Beds are comfortable. Toaster needs to be replaced and one of the bathroom upstairs has a tub not shower however the other restroom does have a large shower. Overall our stay was very nice and we would lease this home again. The porch outside is covered and has plenty of chairs and shade.- Velsie B , Posted: 07/30/2019
Good experience with this house in the past.- Charles H , Posted: 07/29/2019
Access to the beach is limited by neighbor across the street. The HOA has not rebuilt the beach access bridge to the beach since the last hurricane. The door knob needs to be replaced. It is extremely hard to open. The house is great to stay in, but the beach access needs to be addressed.- robert r , Posted: 06/29/2019
Our Property Services team is happy to address the issue with the door knob - the sand and salt aren't kind to locks and knobs here on the coast! We apologize for any confusion with the beach access. As described on the amenity tab, the neighborhood access is 7 houses away, and is a cleared path. We look forward to welcoming you back to the beach again soon!- Sand 'N Sea Properties, Posted: 07/01/2019
Great floor plan. Good ocean view even being beachside. Quiet neighborhood—easy beach access. Indian Beach is our favorite. Palmetto was comfortable. Though be prepared no window coverings in bedroom. We were there during really windy weather so doors rattled—but we were safe out of the weather.- Patrick R , Posted: 06/01/2019
This is a very family friendly and comfortable home. Great views from every room. Nicely decorated with tons of light! I love this property! Additionally, rental staff very friendly and helpful. Special thanks to Jolene for making my first beach house rental experience so pleasant.- Jessica E , Posted: 05/08/2019
Palmetto is a fantastic house for just adults. The 4 private bedrooms with larger beds works great for adults only. This is our 2nd year in this house. The neighborhood was safe and quiet.- Ken W , Posted: 11/06/2018
Very well designed and located for a medium sized group.- Charles H , Posted: 07/28/2018
Beautiful, spacious home with an amazing view of the gulf! Improvements have been made since last time we rented this home. New access to top floor from outside and plenty of outdoor furniture.- Vera L , Posted: 07/21/2018
This is the second time we rent this home. It makes my family feel at home even if it was for a couple of days. Palmetto is an excellent beach gone for vacation.- Maria D , Posted: 05/29/2018
We rented the home for the Lone Star Rally. We had three couples and a single. Each room having a queen sized bed made the house work out great. Everyone loved that each bedroom had it's own balcony doors. We found a few issues at first, nothing major, called the office and a maintenance service technician arrived promptly. Not too far from town, just enough for a good bike ride back.- Ken W , Posted: 11/07/2017
This is an awesome home, very close to the beach with a great view from all rooms, and the living/dining area is bigger than I thought from the pictures. Would definitely rent again. Only one negative comes to mind: there were 4 couples in our party and the 3 bedrooms on the top floor that are supposed to be queens seemed smaller than advertised. Other than that, we had a great time in this home.- Jose B , Posted: 09/29/2017
Provides very good facilities for our group. Access and service are reasons we continue to use this property.- Charles H , Posted: 07/29/2017
Great home, spacious front room, great decks.- Monica M , Posted: 04/19/2017
beautiful home! great ocean view! had a great time!- Linda from Auburn NY, Posted: 01/02/2016
Awesome view, great layout, clean and comfortable- Traci M from Caddo Mills, TX, Posted: 11/09/2015
The house was so charming and had plenty of room to accommodate my guests. The view of the beach was beautiful!- Anonymous J from Channelview, TX, Posted: 09/28/2015
Our family takes a vacation every summer and this year we choose the beach. My experience as a first time guest booking was awesome. The entire process from booking to checking out was great, fast, and excellent customer service. Palmetto beach house was exactly how it was described. Modern, clean, and refreshing views of the ocean. It was 11 of us including 4 children. Everyone slept comfortably with space left over. Overall, really great experience staying at Palmetto. We will definitely be back!!- Anonymous J from Dallas, TX, Posted: 08/31/2015
Loved this beach house. Our family of 11 stayed for a week in August. The house was in great shape, close to the beach, and able to view our beach canopy from the deck.- Anonymous from Crosley, Posted: 08/14/2015
Great propert for large family.- Anonymous R from nacogdcohes, tx, Posted: 06/27/2015
Palmetto was the perfect house for our large family!- Anonymous J from Brenham, Texas, Posted: 06/01/2015
Every bedroom has a wonderful view of the beach. Can't beat that!- Anonymous T from Dallas, TX, Posted: 03/22/2015
The house was beautiful and spacious. Perfect for my father's 80th birthday celebration! Had a great view of the beach with easy access. Of course, it helped that the weather was also perfect! Would definitely stay again.- Anonymous V from Houston, Posted: 10/06/2014
Palmetto was a great house to stay in! It really works for large groups of couples with 4 bedrooms with queen or king size beds. It was minutes from the beach and very quiet. We stayed during September and had the whole beach to ourselves it seemed. Weather wasn't great but house was great for games and good conversation inside and out. We will be back!- Anonymous S from Spring, Texas, Posted: 09/16/2014
This was our second year of staying at Palmetto. The house is perfect in size and location for our entire family. It truly has become a house of wonderful memories that our children will continue to look forward to for many years.- Anonymous B , Posted: 08/04/2014
A beautiful home, comfortable and attractive furnishings and great view.- Anonymous C from Dallas, TX, Posted: 07/21/2014
Excellent beach house for our family vacation! Gorgeous house - Living area and kitchen are open and great for entertainment - very spacious. Huge round table for eating and playing cards or games. Love the floor plan! Master is down with master bath. All other bedrooms are upstairs (3 bedrooms and loft with daybed and bunk beds) - so basically it's 5 bedrooms . . . 2 full baths upstairs and 1 has a bath tub, the other a large walk-in shower. All bedrooms have doors with access to the deck. Loved this house so much we stayed last year and this year!- Anonymous B from Katy, TX, Posted: 06/21/2014
Palmetto is a beautiful home on a quiet beach with larger than normal lots. We were practically the only ones there in Sept. The house is beautifully furnished, comfortable, large and very comfortable. The people at Sand n Sea are very helpful and professional and really try to accommodate requests.- Anonymous L from Plano Texas and beyond, Posted: 09/16/2013
Palmetto remains our favorite house! We have stayed here several times and for our family it always feels like we are coming home.- Anonymous T from Brenham TX, Posted: 08/03/2013
This was an awesome house. Lots of room...great view of the beach...highly recommend!- Anonymous D from Sulphur Springs, Tx, Posted: 07/08/2013
Loved it, loved it, loved it! Very nice and accommodated us all very well - plenty of room. Great floor plan. It's 4 bedrooms, but since you have the loft with bunk beds & a day bed its actually 5 bedrooms. Very close to the beach. Kitchen is updated with granite and stainless steel appliances. Location of the master is downstairs & private. Loved all the family pictures, & how it was decorated! Great view & loved the extended deck facing the water! The only thing we did not like is although we had access to the country club pool, they may charge you $5.00 a head each day to use. I could see $5.00 per family, but thought this was a little extreme. We were told they sometimes let you in without charging, but are not consistent. We did not even go to the pool because of this. Will definitely stay here again!!!- Anonymous B from Katy, TX, Posted: 06/22/2013
Super view of the ocean. Love the covered decks. Each guest bedroom opens onto upper deck so everybody gets a great room & view.- Anonymous A from Pearland, Tx, Posted: 05/18/2013
The house itself was very lovely and comfortable. The gate on the deck made us a wee bit nervous with little ones toddling around (there isn't a way to lock it). And the openings in the railings were a width that they could definately squeeze their way through so we had to avoid the deck with little ones (some decks have a wire material woven through for extra protection). Everything was updated, the beds were comfortable, and the space was just perfectly layed out. The kitchen did seem to be missing some items like dishcloths and a dustpan (we bought one and left it there). We wanted to tidy up after ourselves but it was hard without a dustpan. The proximity to the beach was super close and having a shower downstairs (although the concrete is smooth and we had 2 slips because it was wet after the shower) helped us keep the sand out of the house. The WIFI did not work properly enough to be considered an amenity (we had 2 men needing to check in on work and had to drive to Starbucks) and I think they should note the baby gate, pack n play, and rocking chairs in the amenities for families traveling with little ones. Taking all of this into considertaion, I would still recommend this house to friends and family.- Anonymous M from Fort Worth Texas, Posted: 07/17/2012

We look forward to seeing you again!- Sand 'N Sea Properties, Posted: 07/06/2017
Awesome property, perfect for our family. We vacationed with three grown daughters and their families. We took the master downstairs, and they each had their own bedroom with queen bed upstairs. The cousins loved sharing the upstairs landing with several beds there. One of the upstairs bathrooms has shower only and the other tub only. This worked for us but might be a concern for others. The downstairs bath has tub/shower combo, and has access from master or great room. The great room was large and spacious. The kitchen was well equipped. The views from patio and both decks were awesome. It is very close to the beach, and they have outside shower. Decor was attractive. All bedrooms (and great room) have seaviews, and access to decks. Beds were comfortable. All bathrooms and closets were roomy. If you want less light or more privacy, the storm shutters come down easily. We got ten around the round dining table. 3 large flat screen tvs in great room, master bedroom and upstairs landing. Some games, movies, and books in the house. When we got there, there was no grill, and we called and they brought out a brand new one immediately. Neighborhood was quiet. Patio furniture plentiful, but mostly standard cheap plastic. Lower patio has swinging loveseat and picnic table.- Pam from Huntsville TX, Posted: 06/16/2012
Palmetto is the perfect home for a family. All the adults had a queen or king bed and the kids loved the pyramid bunk and day bed. Excellent arrangement in the house as well. ALL bedrooms have a gorgeous view of the Gulf. It was the perfect home for our Family Vacation---we will definitely be back! Thanks Sand and Sea!- Anonymous S from Conroe Texas, Posted: 11/28/2011
We had a wonderful time together. This was a family vacation that we will long remember.- Bethany , Posted: 08/16/2011
Great house. Loved that it had 4 bedrooms with adult size beds and not bunk beds in bedrooms. Will stay here again.- Anonymous r from nacogdoches, texas, Posted: 07/02/2011
James and his family live near Galveston and I in Austin. We celebrated my 80 year old mother's birthday and also James 1yr old grandchild's birthday and our 1yr of meeting Anniversary. We had my family from Louisiana meet his family and it was an amazing weekend. The house was very nice and we had plenty of room for my family. It's just a few steps to the beach and the weather was wonderful. The house had anything we needed to make our stay pleasant.- Anonymous C from Dickinson, TX and Lafayette, LA, Posted: 06/17/2011
