James G, 03/19/2018

"Stay away from our house!! LOL!! (just kidding) "You will be pleasantly surprised at the comfortability of these houses compared to "same price hotel stays"...."

John P, 03/09/2018

"Very comfortable home! Perfect for 4 or less guests. Fishing was great! Would like to have had a crab trap on the property. Didn't think to bring one. Nice, quiet setting! Love the bay side."

Sandra Z, 08/27/2017

"Tranquility Bay Cottage is thoroughly stocked with all the amenities you could possibly need during your vacation. The home and view from this home are amazing. Our family really enjoyed the use of the private fishing pier and even caught interesting marine life such as sting rays, eel and drum. We would definitely stay here again in the future."

Amy B, 08/20/2017

"We have been going to Galveston for years and never knew that this location existed. It is perfect for getting away from the crowds but still not being far away from everything. "

Kristin G, 07/31/2017

"Just FYI the right front burner on the stove did not light, also the manual can opener was broken. Had a great time fishing was great off the pier and the sunsets were incredible."

John F, 07/18/2017

Sand 'N Sea's Response

Thank you for the feedback re the can opener - it's been replaced! Also, our appliance tech is addressing the one burner that's not working.
We look forward to seeing you again soon!

"Such a lovely, clean comfortable house with great fishing and crabbing."

Evert A, 06/27/2017

"Tranqulity Bay Cottage definitely lives up to it's name! The cottage was just lovely and the view was spectacular!"

Nancy E, 05/30/2017

"Beautiful quiet location. Loved watching all the birds on the marsh, on the property, and out over the bay. Exceptionally clean and modern home."

Lucy R, 05/08/2017

"Easy from the get go and house was very lean w upgraded everything in kitchen to cook with"

Michael J, 05/03/2017

"We loved this property and will definitely be back. It was perfect for two people and we were able to entertain a few guests with ease."

Jami M from Pearland, TX, 11/13/2016

"we have stayed on the gulf side and now the bay side, we liked the bay side best"

h from wichita,kansas, 10/22/2016

"Sunsets at this home are beautiful. Home is modern and everything you could possible want for is there. Quite neighbor away from the hustle and bustle of the seawall but only a short drive when you're ready to experience some excellent seafood."

B from Rowlett, TX., 10/11/2016

"This rental was very nice and had all the things anyone would need to cook with. One of our party has been a chef and he was amazed at the type of cookware and dishes we had. It was great fishing from the pier and the beach is a short drive from the property. Would stay here again. It looks like a new home very clean and looked just like the pictures on the website."

W from Pilot Point TX-Lewisville TX, 09/18/2016

"Beautiful 1-bedroom cottage with private pier. Kitchen is well stocked. Caught plenty of fish and crabs from the pier. When taking a break from fishing, we went kayaking and canoing in the bay. Beautiful view of the bay in the back and the wetland in the front. Great place to stay for family with kids who love the outdoors. It would be nicer if the fishing pier has light for night time fishing and fresh water for cleaning fish. We would definitely stay here again. There is only a 2 hours window for checking-in (3:00-5:00pm). After 5:00pm is considered late check-in with additional $30 in cash for the agent. There should be a free late check-in with key in the lockbox."

N from Pearland, Texas, 09/06/2016

Sand 'N Sea's Response

Hello Nguyen Family, Thank you for your feedback! For security reasons (for our guests and homeowners) we are unable to leave keys for check-in. We appreciate your understanding and look forward to seeing you at the beach again soon!

"Good location for the outdoor type looking for a good fishing location. Great birding location."

Dan K from Frisco, TX, 08/06/2016

"Excellent location on the bay with a private pier. Caught lots of crabs and fishing was good. Love that this was on a somewhat secluded road. We will definitely stay here again"
