I have been using Sand and Sea for years.- Kimberly I , Posted: 05/12/2020
House had a stunning view -great space for families -easy beach access -- Kathleen P , Posted: 12/02/2019
It is comfortable cozy and meets all your expectations....well mine anyway!- Cathleen W , Posted: 11/07/2019
Great floor plan, well stocked kitchen and great A/C!- Elizabeth W , Posted: 07/09/2019
Property is true to the pictures- Darlene F , Posted: 06/18/2019
It is good for young children. Quiet, comfortable and safe. The desk is well enclosed. I like how the gates up and down the stairs lock. The furniture is comfortable, but not so fancy you're worried to sit on it. The kitchen is well equipped. It was wonderful being walking distance from the beach. The stove top was a little challenging waiting for it to warm up, but worked fine once you got the hang of it. The room are very comfortable and dark enough for little ones to sleep well.- Sarahbeth P , Posted: 05/28/2019
Great view. Very relaxing.- Kenneth L , Posted: 04/25/2019
this is a really nice place- Thomas R , Posted: 03/04/2019
It is a little old and not real big but perfect for our family of 7 and we love how close it is to the beach.- Babs D , Posted: 11/26/2018
This is our second stay because we like the beds. Husband has back problems and mattress are nice and firm. The NEST thermostat is very difficult to use. Our last stay it was stuck on A/C and temp outside was in the 40’s. Had to ask someone to come out Thanksgiving Day and he was so nice and got it fixed so we we could enjoy the rest of our stay.- Babs D , Posted: 11/26/2018
Great location, great view. Loved the covered deck, it had a nice breeze. The covered deck was secure for pets .The house stayed nice and cool. Having a washer and dryer was wonderful. The House was clean with comfortable furniture. The couch and mattresses have seen better days, but wouldn’t keep me from renting this same house again. I would recommend bringing plenty of mosquito repellent.- Bill L , Posted: 09/20/2018
We are thrilled to update that both king mattresses were replaced 11/2018!- Sand 'N Sea Properties, Posted: 02/20/2019
Great location, well stocked and comfortable.- David F , Posted: 08/26/2018
We enjoy the wide ocean view from the main porch. I'm sure the roof-top porch has an even better view.- Anne R , Posted: 07/31/2018
The Ross 5 is a great place to be . It is comfortable and relaxing.- Ken L , Posted: 07/17/2018
it was a great vacation home- Robin C , Posted: 07/10/2018
Such a great house. The comfortable furnishings, good floorplan, well-equipped kitchen, and ocean views made for a fun and relaxing stay.- MEGAN M , Posted: 06/26/2018
The beds are great if you like hard and we do. View is perfect- Michael D , Posted: 06/19/2018
This is the perfect house for a small family. The view is perfect and the house is wonderful. We will be back often!- Katie I , Posted: 10/19/2017
Great location charming. We loved it- Barbara F , Posted: 10/17/2017
Great view of the beach, kitchen has everything you need, washer and dryer- Eloisa G , Posted: 10/02/2017
Great place for a family with kids, 2 minutes walk to the beach. Loved the big table in the dining area where we had 8 people for a wonderful evening of grilling and a lot of good wine- Volkhart T , Posted: 09/11/2017
This is a great house. The kitchen is well stocked. We had 4 adults and 2 children and were very comfortable. The view and access to the beach is excellent! Loved this beach house so much we rented it again.- Darrell Kenneth C , Posted: 06/20/2017
Great location! Fantastic house with all the space and amenities you'd need. Having a covered patio and then an upstairs patio for sun makes this a great outdoor space for all. Would definitely stay here again!- Lanna P , Posted: 05/24/2017
The place was clean and had unobstructed view of the beach. Kitchen was well equipped with all the tools one would like to have. 2 king-size bedrooms were exactly what we were looking for, connected bathrooms were on the small side, but sufficient. Had friends over for an evening dinner, and the big rustic table in the living room was perfect for entertaining.- Anonymous T from The Woodlands, Texas, Posted: 09/07/2016
Excellent house- Anonymous M from Sherman Texas, Posted: 07/26/2016
Wonderful properties and staff! The staff called to check in on us! Excellent experience!!!- Anonymous W from Houston Texas, Posted: 07/19/2016
It has very good view of the Gulf. It is a good house for family with kids. My family enjoyed the house very much.- Anonymous from Pearland, Posted: 06/02/2016
Excellent view. Perfect size and one story. Deck great for your pet. Has gates to keep pets on the deck. We just love it.- Anonymous H from Houston, Texas, Posted: 05/21/2016
The washer and dryer are upgraded and run quietly and efficiently. The oven is true to temperature and cooks evenly. The refrigerator is huge and held all our food for the week easily and kept everything nice and cold. The ice maker kept up with the demand of our family of four easily. In a nutshell, we are seasoned beach house travelers and found this home to be cozy but still spaced out enough to sleep 10 in beds, comfortably.- Anonymous T , Posted: 03/22/2015
UPDATE (1/11/16): The new owners of Ross 5 have restocked the kitchen and made all necessary repairs and would love to see you back at the beach!

Very tastefully decorated living room. Great decks and views. Centrally located.- Anonymous B from Houston, Posted: 01/15/2015
This is the 5th year we've rented from Sand & Sea and the service and condition of the rental properties has always been great. We'll use Sand & Sea again certainly.- Lynne J from Houston, TX, Posted: 10/28/2014
Ross 5 is a great house. We loved all of the windows and the view from the patio. Hopefully on our next trip down the mosquitos will be minimal - the house had a great covered driveway underneath the house that we would loved to have been able to use. Access to the beach and to the activities in Galveston was great!- Sarah P from Missouri City, TX, Posted: 09/15/2014
It is a perfect location. Deck is always shady with a great view of the water. You can hear the waves. When you are ready to walk to the beach, it is a very short distance. Our dog had a wonderful time too. The deck can be secured with one baby gate, so she could have freedom and still not get away.- Anonymous T from Houston, Texas, Posted: 05/25/2014
Have been renting from SandNSea in Pirates and Indian beach for 27 years. You can not go wrong wit SandNSea.- Anonymous V from Holland Mi / Nashville Tn, Posted: 04/18/2014
Fun home with great view. Was not so fancy that we had to worry about messing it up! Will be back.- Anonymous H from Montgomery, Tx, Posted: 12/29/2013
This was our 4th year renting from you and we've had an excellent experience each time. One of our daughters is special needs and this is a very special trip for her and her little dog, and you have done a very good job with everything all 4-years.- Anonymous from Houston, TX, Posted: 10/29/2013
Great location and view to the beach! We enjoyed our stay and plan to make this an annual trip. The area is always clean and since we have come in September the last 2 years not crowded at all which makes it nice!!- Anonymous H from Humble, TX, Posted: 10/09/2013
Great property, very comfortable and clean, beautiful view of the beach. Would rent again.- Anonymous H , Posted: 09/22/2013
It was clean. One story. Perfect deck--shaded well all hours of the day, one entrance so our baby gate kept the dog on the deck. Great view and a short walk to the water. Could hear the water at all times. Very relaxing.- Earl and Nancy H , Posted: 05/20/2013
Deck is nicely shaded and you can see and hear the gulf from the deck and living room. Very relaxing house. Also very handy to have nice washing machine and dryer. Hot and cold outside shower gets all the sand off too! Great location!- Anonymous K from San Francisco,Ca., Posted: 05/13/2013
I booked by phone this time since lur usual house was rented all month, and asked for a recommendation of another 3-bedroom house. Misty was recommended. We got to Sand & Sea and found Misty was a 2-bedroom and were pretty unhappy, but our renter agent was very helpful and got us lined up with Ross 5 quickly and we were actually, overall, really happy with that house and would probably rent it again. Mistakes happen but Sand & Sea fixed this and we had a great time.- Lynne J from Houston, Texas, Posted: 10/09/2012
Hello Lynne - We are so sorry for the inconvenience and are very glad that we were able to find a home that accommodated you! We can't wait to welcome you back to either home!- Sand 'N Sea Properties, Posted: 07/06/2017
Excellent property! My family and I had a wonderful time and are looking forward to renting this house again next year.- Anonymous M from Houston, Texas, Posted: 07/24/2012
One of the special things this property has is a covered deck that allows a view of the gulf.- NVH from Friendswood TX, Posted: 07/03/2012
The location is excellent; the covered deck area is nice to have as well as the area under the home; lacking in good deck chairs an lounge pads; kitchen very well stocked with dishes, appliances, pans, etc.- J. W from Bellaire TX, Posted: 04/16/2012
Two king bedrooms were especially welcome for the two families. The kids shared the bunk beds and had a blast.- Anonymous H from Austin and Connecticut, Posted: 01/06/2012
Really enjoyed the home and our stay.- Anonymous M from Texas, Posted: 11/21/2011
Were very pleased with this property and it's location to the beach. Just a minute or two walk. Great ocean view, open concept living and kitchen, isolated master and a great upper deck. Was the perfect house for our family vacation. Would reserve again with no hesitation.- John & Renee from Waco, Texas, Posted: 09/07/2011
We liked staying at Ross 5 because the inside is beautiful and there is a covered deck with a view of the ocean. The outside does not reveal how great it is inside. W also like the 3rd floor open deck with the view of the ocean. We enjoyed the short walk 1 block to Pirates Beach and did not find it crowded on the weekend.- Anonymous L from Houston, Posted: 05/16/2011
