Not front row so no sunrise view. Nothing directly in front of house but still feels a little view lacking. And millions of sand burrs stickers. Millions. Cute house however.- Lisa B , Posted: 06/26/2020
House for small family and great location!- Tina A , Posted: 06/20/2020
Love this beach property. Beautiful view of beach and very short walk to beach. Love the full size washer/dryer. The house was clean and neat and filled equipped kitchen was wonderful. I definitely will be staying there again.- Sherry J , Posted: 06/13/2020
The Tides is a great house for a small group. The two master suites were great for the adults and the loft is great for kids. We love the beach where the house is located. No motorized vehicles allowed makes for a safer area for kids and less crowded beach experience. Have stayed here twice and will be staying here later this summer. Thank you Sand and Sea for always having great rental properties.- Ronnie H , Posted: 05/19/2020
Great Place !!- Steven M , Posted: 05/16/2020
The property was excellent except for very poor WIFI connection and no way to reboot the modem. I believe this location is one of the few properties that does not use Comcast. That would have to be changed if we were ever to consider returning. Otherwise everything about the Tides was excellent.- Steve A , Posted: 04/03/2020
Excellent location. 2nd tier but no house blocking ocean view. Had our own private beach! Wish it had had a covered porch.- Joan A , Posted: 07/20/2019
Adorable house, great view- Melissa N , Posted: 11/19/2018
Great view with a backyard trail to beach. Wear your flip-flops there is some stickers. Dinner on the deck watching the waves and stargazing PRICELESS!!!- Linda M , Posted: 10/12/2018
Great house in an excellent location with unobstructed beach views! Lots of value for your dollar. Comfortably furnished both inside and out. You won't be disappointed with this rental. Perfect for two couples or a small family. The loft is great for 2 teens/young adults. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!- GAYLYN K , Posted: 09/04/2018
Perfect views! Perfect location! Love seeing the dolphins. Wish I could buy it!- Tanya C , Posted: 07/13/2018
We’ve been coming to Galveston’s west end for many years, using Sand N Sea vacation rentals. We are very pleased with our experiences.- George S , Posted: 06/23/2018
excellent experience on the beach. nice amenities at the house.- Gerald R , Posted: 06/16/2018
Great getaway located right on the beach and away from Galveston.- Eddie F , Posted: 06/09/2018
The price for the space and location was what closed the deal for me. It was important to me to be close to the beach and have an unobstructed view of the ocean. I loved the time I was able to spend on the deck!- Karen M , Posted: 05/15/2018
Have used Sand and Sea for years, always a great experience!- Steven M , Posted: 11/06/2017
Perfect for one family. Perfect use of space! Love this cottage.- Tanya C , Posted: 09/09/2017
Great location! Family enjoyed their stay!- Barbara M , Posted: 07/22/2017
Pictures do not do this house justice.- Cathy Y , Posted: 07/08/2017
This is a wonderful beach house. It shows how much the owners love this home and take great care of it. It was clean, well furnished, comfortable and has a wonderful view. The deck is great and there are also tables and chairs where you can sit under the beach house, too. Cleared path to the beach, a great place to stay!- Darby M , Posted: 05/30/2017
This is a great place if you do not need the loft or have school age children who can climb the ladder safely. Location and furnishings are great.- Anonymous Q from Dallas Tx area, Posted: 06/26/2016
Kitchen is well equipped for cooking. Great view very cozy- Donna from Friendswood, Tx, Posted: 09/09/2015
A stones throw from the beach! Nice to be out and away from the busier area of Galveston. There are a couple of Grocery Stores within a few minutes drive that can fill most of your needs rather than driving back into Galveston- Anonymous W from College Station, Texas, Posted: 07/12/2015
We loved staying at The Tides! This was a great little property that had everything we needed. Clean, bright, comfortable with great upkeep and modern appliances all around. We cooked a lot and the kitchen was well equipped. Our teenage boys loved sleeping in the loft while we loved the comfortable master bed. It was even comfortable for two picky sleepers use to a Tempur-Pedic mattress at home. Great views of the ocean! We would definitely stay here again. Our only complaint was the extremely slow wifi we needed several times for looking up restaurants, attractions, and trying to deal with getting a new phone for the one that went swimming!- Anonymous M from Cedar Park, Texas, Posted: 06/14/2015
The Tides, what a jewel! We've stayed here numerous times and just love it. It's a small home that doesn't feel tight. It has a great view of the beach from the deck and the dining table. It has a lot of natural light and vaulted ceilings giving it an airy feel. The kitchen is well stocked with glasses, plates, small appliances, pots, pans and cooking utensils. It's a perfect get-a-way beach house.- Anonymous M from Austin, TX, Posted: 09/03/2014
What a great property. Great views, easy access to beach and very beautifully decorated and updated. A big thank you to the owner for sharing their home with us! We had a great time.- Tanya C from Houston, TX, Posted: 08/16/2014
Great property but there was absolutely nothing there to clean the glass table or any other cleaning products. Usually people leave items for the next vacationers and there was nothing. We have always left things when staying at a house and there was always things left.- Stacey C from Lubbock, Texas, Posted: 07/06/2014
Hi Stacey! We don't leave any type of cleaning supplies in the house due to safety concerns. Unsecured or unexpected chemicals could be very hazardous - especially for our guests with children or pets. We are sorry if this was inconvenient for you, but are definitely glad you loved house!- Sand 'N Sea Properties, Posted: 07/07/2017
Beautiful furnishings. Tall ceilings made house feel spacious. Great view- robin from Midlothian texas, Posted: 04/06/2014
Easy beach access. Would definitely rent again. Clean and plenty of kitchen supplies!- Tina from Rockdale Texas, Posted: 06/24/2013
It is very nice inside i did like the dish network in the bed rooms as well as the main room. wish it had internet so we could have looked up local places to visit, other than that it was great.- Anonymous M from Spring, TX, Posted: 08/11/2012
Small home perfect for two families. Very clean and cozy! Beach view is unobstructed and just a few steps away. We had a wonderful time and would love to stay here again!- Anonymous F from Poolville, TX, Posted: 07/28/2012
A great little house that was clean and comfortble with many unexpected amenities, but best of all, a great view.- Anonymous S from Kingwood, TX, Posted: 07/14/2012
The property was clean and very comfortable. Our family loved this beach house and would recommend to anyone.- Anonymous F from The Woodlands, Texas, Posted: 05/26/2012
Great house spacious deck,great view and walk to beach is easy!- Erica & Mark from Houston, Posted: 05/13/2012
From the outside this place is not as attractive but once you getinside it is beautiful.- john from tomball texas, Posted: 03/18/2012
Updated and comfortable house close to the beach. Lots of fishermen around.- Anonymous N from Houston, Posted: 09/03/2011
The photos online didn't do it justice! We were very pleasantly surprised by how nice and well equipped the house is. We were prepared to be a little cramped,but we were quite comfortable. The view from the deck was terrific. We were there during a full moon and it was a magical time.- Anonymous T , Posted: 08/15/2011
The exterior of the property does not do justice for the decor/cleanliness of the inside of the house. We were very pleased with the home and location. We would definitely recommend this property to others.- Anonymous S from Teague, TX, Posted: 07/31/2011
Very nicely situated with unobstructed view of Gulf. The deck is large and well stocked with chairs.- Anonymous F from Austin, Texas, Posted: 07/11/2011
The Tides is newly remodeled, nicely appointed, clean and well maintained. It is located in Sea Isle, making it close enough to Galveston attractions, but far enough way from city bustle. We enjoyed the open floor plan & great views. Double pane windows keep the house cool & quiet. We also liked the new kitchen appliances, washer/dryer & dish TV. The owner purchased the property in front of the house as well, so you get a great unobstructed view of the beach without the beachfront price. This property is perfect for couples, or a small family. The loft sleeping is suitable for older kids or teens - not recommended for adults. Two full bathrooms (showers only) is also a bonus.- Anonymous V from Seabrook Texas, Posted: 06/24/2011
