The master showers are extremely small, the owners need to replace the BBQ grill, the Wi-Fi did not work the entire time. The location is fantastic & the views are amazing.- Craig W , Posted: 07/25/2020
Very comfortable, beachfront house. Well stocked kitchen.- MYRA W , Posted: 07/04/2020
The common areas are perfect for meals and playing games. The deck is perfect because it can fit everyone, the chairs are comfortable, and you’re in the shade at the end of the day. In the morning the outdoor table is perfect for coffee and breakfast in the shade and enjoying the breeze and sound of the ocean! Perfect layout!- Lorraine M , Posted: 06/20/2020
Enjoyed our stay with 4 young adult kids. Great location and beautiful view from living area. Nice open floor plan with plenty of privacy in 3 separate bedroom areas. Well stocked kitchen and comfortable deck furniture. Would recommend replacing sofas in living room due to significant staining on the upholstery such that we covered them with sheets during the stay, and the home interior could use some fresh paint. But these were minor issues. Most furnishings were very nice. Overall would stay again.- Lisa H , Posted: 05/27/2020
You responded quickly to the smell in the frig. Smell was gone by the time most of family arrived. Thank you for the quick service & response.- Donna G , Posted: 11/18/2019
this house fits our family- fred u , Posted: 07/20/2019
This was our second time to stay in Vista del Mar. It's a wonderful house with plenty of room for a big family. Being just steps from the beach was so convenient!- Gloria M , Posted: 07/03/2019
Beautiful house. Had everything you need in kitchen. Deck needs work but overall great. Ridiculous policy about not making up the bunk beds. For price all beds should of been ready.- Gayla M , Posted: 06/15/2019
Hello Gayla - We are glad you loved your stay! We apologize for any inconvenience with the bunk beds. Unfortunately, insurance restrictions prohibit our housekeepers from physically putting the sheets on bunk or sofa beds, but we are happy to supply the set of freshly laundered sheets! We look forward to welcoming you back to the beach again soon!- Sand 'N Sea Properties, Posted: 06/17/2019
Outstanding view but don’t walk barefoot on the porch splendors.. the outside could use a fresh coat of paint. But inside is perfect.- Norman R , Posted: 04/24/2019
There is no room in the bunk room for the trundles to be used, but they can be pulled into an open space.- Nancy S , Posted: 11/26/2018
It was a wonderful weekend in a lovely home. It was stocked better than any other house we've stayed in - and since this was the 11th year that our group has done this, we have stayed in several. We had no complaint about the house. Thank you.- Sue R , Posted: 10/29/2018
The outdoor area is shaded from the sun but not a cover from the elements. It rained on our weekend stay, and we would have still gone out and listened to the rain and waves out on the porch if it had been covered. Also, when we left, it was raining and going up and down the stairs in the rain was a bit precarious. Also during our stay, the dishwasher did not work. Someone came to look at it and tried to fix it, but it still would not run properly. The dishes were still dirty and the soap hadn't fully dissolved when the load was finished. Who wants to hand wash dishes on vacation?!? Lastly, upstairs there were dead bugs all along the lower border of the sliding door. The rest of the house was clean, the kitchen was otherwise well stocked, and the bed arrangements were convenient for three families with kids. Also, the check-in and -out process was easy and convenient. Thank you for allowing early check-in when it's available.- Mayra P , Posted: 10/02/2018
We appreciated your understanding, as we have to wait for the replacement part for the dishwashwer. We apologize that this unexpected maintenance issue arose during your stay, and appreciate you letting us know so we could get it addressed!- Sand 'N Sea Properties, Posted: 10/03/2018
Vista Del Mar is a very good beach house for a large family or group with its open kitchen, dining area and living area; plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms; and easy access to the beach. Two areas for improvement. (1) The refrigerator required three days to cool down to a temperature cool enough to keep meats at a safe temperature. When the cleaning crew cleaned the refrigerator, they apparently left the door open too long. (2) The AC filters were filthy and had not been changed in many months. After we changed the filters, the AC worked much better.- Victor B , Posted: 08/18/2018
My favorite so far that we have rented from Sand 'N Sea.- Sharlett D , Posted: 08/13/2018
We have been using Sand n Sea for over 20 years. Always has been good experience!- Sherry W , Posted: 07/21/2018
House very nice, very open with plenty of room. Kitchen was fully stocked and beds were comfortable. The only thing I would recommend is better chairs for the balcony the ones that are there are not very comfortable to sit in.- Julie H , Posted: 03/15/2018

If I could buy this beautiful house, I would! My stay there with 3 dear old friends was perfect.- Blanche T from Houston, Posted: 05/30/2017
Property was very comfortable & relaxing with plenty of space & well supplied kitchen. View of beach & beach access were perfect. Linens for bunk beds were supplied but not on beds which was a challenge for lady over 70 sleeping in lower bunk. Property location very convenient.- Carolyn S , Posted: 05/15/2017

Great views from the main living room and master bedroom. Well stocked. Best house we have rented in Galveston over the past 5 years of renting houses there. We will definitely be back.- Chip E from Houston, Posted: 04/17/2017
The openness of the entire living room / dining room/ kitchen...and windows...great view. The balcony..did not have bird poop...so...we got to enjoy that too.- Katherine S , Posted: 04/17/2017
We enjoyed the property. Kitchen was very well stocked. Only complaint would be that there is really not enough room to use one of the trundles in the bunk room.- Elizabeth H , Posted: 04/10/2017
This was a perfect house for a family vacation! The view is absolutely beautiful of the water! The house is lovely and very comfortable! The kitchen was well supplied. Beds and linens are so comfortable. The house is about a mile from a small grocery store which was so convenient.!- Carolyn from houston, Posted: 08/09/2016
