We leverage print, radio, digital, social media, promotional trade outs, and more to market your beach house and the area. We are proud to be a partner in promoting local tourism efforts. Local events, holidays, and seasonal opportunities are promoted to guests year-round, which encourages them to explore Galveston (and book beach houses!) for more than just a weekend in the summer!

Online, in person, or over the phone Sand `N Sea Properties makes it easy for guests to securely book your property when and where they prefer. Rental & refund policies are clearly stated and professional, and our staff is here to quickly answer any questions.

Housekeeping, Linens & Inspections:

We employ trained, skilled housekeepers who keep your rental home cleaned at or above industry standards. They also take care of placing fresh SNS-owned linens in your home before each guest. No costly linen package for you to purchase! Inspectors are on your property before and after every guest, ensuring consistent quality and making sure that everything is in order.

Trust Accounting & Records:

We keep the records – from revenues to repairs, from lodging tax to 1099s – you'll receive professional, monthly accounting of what is happening at your property. Our online owner portal allows you to review statements, work orders, registration certificates, rental revenues, and make owner reservations 24/7.

We let you know what's happening – from property repairs and marketing initiatives to local issues and industry trends. We know the vacation rental industry and we'll keep you informed with our monthly homeowner newsletter and timely email updates.

Security:

As local professional property managers, we are the "eyes and ears" for your beach house. Our staff monitors your home and is in it regularly to ensure all is well and ready for your guests.

As a founding member of GARM (Galveston Association of Rental Managers) we understand the importance of being good neighbors. We maintain connections to property owners associations and your neighbors; we keep guests informed about subdivision rules as well as local laws. We also enforce rental policies that prevent overcrowding of your home, house parties, and/or parking violations.

Accountability:
As your property manager, we are primarily accountable to you, the property owner. All guests are required to sign a detailed rental agreement and review the rental policies. We rent to families or adult groups over the age of 25, and we do not rent to proms, parties, reunions, etc. We do everything we can to protect your home and your investment.

Local Connections & Advocacy:

We maintain relationships with local officials and agencies – from Galveston’s tourism board and Visitor’s Center to the police, City Council and the Chamber of Commerce. We are constantly making sure our homeowners and guests are top of mind in our community.

We advocate for clean, attractive beaches, and we participate in our civic organizations: Tourism Development Advisory Committee, the Beach Maintenance Advisory Committee, the Planning Commission and other local & tourism-related organizations. We sponsor and volunteer for local events and initiatives that have a positive impact on tourism and our community.
