Great location just steps away from the beach. Really enjoyed the private beach access, as well as the large deck overlooking the ocean.

Location is great. We have stayed at this house before.

Very nice front beach house, love everything about it, walk way bridge to the beach, the master room viewing morning sunset/ sunrise through window/ sliding door to balcony when waking up in the morning, just beautiful! Can use some little update on some stuffs to keep up the top notch but not major problem and not complaining at all. Loved that no pets becuz have two kids who is allergic to animal furs.

This property met all our expectations and we loved the new deck. It provided enough space for our corn hole game and the 8 rockers are a nice touch. The umbrella was useful for blocking the sun during certain times of the day. Kitchen is well stocked. The furnishings and decor very tasteful. As mentioned on two previous reviews in June and August (our stay in September) the upstairs bedroom has NO window coverings (sliding door vertical blind is useless because it is broken with only had 6 slats remaining) This creates a huge privacy issue on both west and south sides of the house. (The two downstairs bedrooms DO have blinds) Luckily we came prepared after reading the reviews and checking with Sand n Sea before arrival. Overall we enjoyed our stay but would not stay here again unless the window coverings are added.

I really would recommend some window coverings on the upstairs windows. The sun is very bright at 6:45 am. Also there needs to be some clothing storage available in downstairs bedrooms. The closet door was broken and entire closet was taken by other items. Other than these minor issues, we really enjoyed the property and would stay here again.

Great location, really comfortable. Just needs some kind of window covering.

Happy Turtle was a great place for our family trip. The house has everything you need, and well maintained.

This was my 2nd time renting Yappy Turtle, though when I first rented it 8 years ago, it was only a 3 bedroom home. I was there during Imelda and was really glad that they added a new dune crossover, with all the rain the path to the beach was completely waterlogged but we were able to access the beach without any problems. The house itself hasn't changed much except for some wear and tear, but I rented it again because of the space in the main living area and kitchen; my family and I were able to spread out without crowding each other. The kitchen is fully equipped and has plenty of utensils and pots and pans, but I really wish the main floor bedrooms had dressers. A minor issue, and other than that, we had a pleasant time.

It's a little ways down the island to get there but it's worth it.
- Gary M , Posted: 08/27/2019
Yappy Turtle was a very nice place, we have stayed in other homes in Galveston and numerous Condos in Florida, and we would recommend staying here to anyone anytime!
- DION L , Posted: 08/13/2019
Great location and private beach access which is very nice. The property is very comfortable and met all of our needs.
- Karla C , Posted: 08/07/2019
Very nice floor plan for families. Large dining table, bunk beds, and living room. Great view of the beach. We wished there was a table on the deck.
- Nell F , Posted: 05/18/2019
Great house. New appliances and utensils. Very comfortable.
- Rosemarie D , Posted: 02/18/2019
The open concept was perfect for our family! The table for 10 was my favorite— that we could ALL sit down together for our meals!!

Can’t go wrong with sand & sea
- Steve F , Posted: 12/07/2018
We loved staying at "The Yappy Turtle." The owners have all the cabinets labeled, which was awesome! No spending a lot of time searching for items. When we come back to Galveston we will definitely try to stay here again. Loved the short distance to the beach, too!
- Theresa W , Posted: 09/08/2018
We were very Happy @ the YAPPY-)))
- SUSAN J , Posted: 05/12/2018
My family’s stay at the Yappy Turtle was absolutely amazing. The weather didn’t quite cooperate, so thank goodness we had a fabulous beach home to spend our time in on those days. Everything was neat and organized to the max. Everything was labeled for my convenience, and the property owners of course! Great beach home and we will visit it again.
- Hollie W , Posted: 04/10/2018
We have been coming to Galveston for over 10 years and this was our favorite house so far. The only issue we had that wasn’t handled as quickly as we would have liked was the televisions. We had issues getting all TV’s working correctly. The weather turned out very cool or we wouldn’t have cared. This house is awesome and the property had everything labeled and this was so helpful. The management co was very helpful on all of our other issues and were very professional and we would highly recommend this property and SandnSea!!!
- Vicki N , Posted: 03/19/2018
Beautiful views of the Gulf and easy access to the beach. Fresh water for rinsing off and Picnic table downstairs is really nice. Charcoal grill is fairly small though. Home is very comfortable and all appliances and furnishings work well. Beds are very comfortable too. We would stay at this home again!

You can’t go wrong going thur sand n sea for a beach house vacation rental very professional staff
- Steve F , Posted: 12/04/2017
This home is lovely. The owners thought of everything from coffee and tea to labeling things in the kitchen for easy access. Very clean and well kept with. Perfect close access to the beach, especially if you like to get sand between your toes. The fenced off deck is a great addition to the property, especially when you've got a feisty 2 year old who can reach all the doorknobs.
- Michelle P , Posted: 11/28/2017
Close by moody garden and beachfront
We found this beautiful house updated beach front like one step outside. Like private beach and no driving on beach. Private but was close to moody garden, strant, all restaurant like 10 min also close to water park so it's perfect location! I have stay many house but this one is perfect distance to everywhere.
- Tim B from San Antonio , Posted: 11/07/2017
Love this house, yearly tradition. It's best location quiet private beach front but still close to strand. Few miles to main location. Love watching stars at night. Feels private but yet it's happening area.
- Mark F from Spring, Posted: 11/01/2017
The home very comfortable and right on beach. Sunrise views fantastic.
- Thomas A , Posted: 10/23/2017
Wow modern beachfront , love gate
This is one of my fav beachfront property in all rentals. It's beautiful, modern, upscale, and has the beach feeling. It's super safe for kids fence in front of beach. The best part is the private beach. The house is well stocked from pots,pans to shampoo and conditioner. The most modern, cleanest house I have rented. Love the private beachfront! Wifi password is on router upstairs bedroom. Also love it has 2 master room. One upstairs and one downstairs. So it can accompany two families. Or privacy. Love tile and windows!!

Fantastic Beach House!!!
We stayed here and had an amazing visit!! Literally on the beach, fenced yard and very private. The interior was great as well, very roomy and comfortable and the upkeep is above and beyond. Cant wait to go back :)
- Elnaz A from Houston, Posted: 07/24/2017
The upstairs bunk room tends to be a bit too warm without a fan. I would recommend taking one to use at night up there.

BEACH FRONT PRIVATE BEACH
Upscale modern beach house. We walked 2 step and beach is there. It is almost like having your own private beach, It was quiet and peace full and very clean house. It has everything. The bedrooms are big. Open modern concept. and private fence. Stayed at many beach front property, hands off this has it all. OWN PRIVATE SECLUDED CLEAN BEACH. All yours!
- Eliza S from Houston, Posted: 07/15/2017
We enjoyed the effort the owner made to make us feel at home. the kitchen was labeled and contained many items beyond my expectations. I will bring a few blankets next time. Everyone was impressed with the beauty of this house and location.

- Tabitha W , Posted: 04/17/2017
This house is gorgeous - loved everything about it. It is super clean and decorated very nicely. Beds are comfortable and we loved the rocking chairs on the deck - woke up every morning having coffee on the deck and watched the ocean waves. We will definitely stay here again next year. We want to thank the owners for letting us stay in their lovely beach home.
- Kathy B from Ennis Tx, Posted: 10/03/2016

If you plan on cooking for a crowd bring a large skillet or griddle. Otherwise kitchen is well equipped.

This is the most amazing property in Galveston, a lovely white picket fence house with amazing views. Located in the cleanest beach with no crowds at all and no vehicle access.
- Heidi H from The Woodlands, TX, Posted: 07/25/2016
This house is one of the nicest that we've stayed at. They seem to keep it very well stocked, and have a great labeling system. It is not overly big inside, but the rooms are very comfortable and the overall feel is very "homey"....we loved it! I know we'll be renting this one again in the future. = }
