overall the stay was great. the bigger beds where very comfortable (most comfortable i've experienced in renting) and having the beach in walking distance was great. only down side was the amount of mosquitoes which isn't the fault of the place.
A great night sleeps is always a plus! Glad the beds were comfortable and the proximity to the beach convenient. We hope you enjoyed a nice Thanksgiving celebration on the island. Arg, mosquitos! Sorry they were their pesky selves. Hopefully this cold snap will send them packing.
Overall the house was great! Nice furnishings, decorations, sleeping areas, etc., but a little sparse on kitchen items, no beach towels, etc. Also, not the owners fault, but beach access is a little more difficult than it was the last time we stayed in the area. The walkover at the end of the street in front of the house is fenced off now and you either have to walk under someone else's house or walk through a large lot of unmowed grass at the back to get to the access. We brought our golf cart but there is only one way to enter the beach with a cart, and that entrance was so deep with soft sand that all the carts kept getting stuck. Again, not the owner's fault, but it does make a difference if close beach access is important. Outdoor warm shower is great! I loved the decks to sit out and to view the ocean. Washer & dryer is handy and TVs in every room with Direct TV was nice. Overall we had a very nice time and enjoyed the house.
Appreciate you taking the time to write such a detailed review and glad you enjoyed your stay! We agree, it is a beautiful beach. :) Don't know when you were last in the area, but the access at the end of Buccaneer got closed off by the storms. Interestingly, a new access point was formed in that same storm. Now, there is access from 2 spots on the next street over. The Guest Guide in the home has an aerial image of the island with access point identified, so guests don't accidentally trespass on private property. Thanks for your suggestion on additional kitchen items. Will share accordingly. As for the beach towels, we suggest you bring on the inventory list we provide before your stay. Far too many towels got legs and walked away or were damaged from prior guests.
We absolutly loved our stay at Across the Pass! The home was so inviting, clean, and close to the beach! It had all of the items we needed while we were there. We grilled every night and sat on the balconies and listened to the ocean every morning and evening. We walked 3 houses down to the beach every day and night! We found so many unique shells and the kids loved it! Especially going crabbing at night! The only downside was that the mosquitos around the parking area were horrible! we went through about 3 cans of OFF! and bought citronella candles for the balconies. My parents have bad knees and the stairs were a factor for them to going up and down. Other than that it was the perfect, relaxing vacation. I would highly recommend Across the Pass for any family vacation or get away. We will be booking again!! Thank you!!
Brand new, great arrangement of the beds, baths and common areas. Loved having a full kitchen and dining area so that we could bring in fresh seafood and do our own crab boil or grill shrimp on the deck with the provided propane grill. Common area deck with tons of seating. And an upper deck; great private place to hang a hammock and enjoy the sound of the waves. Just a few steps to the beach. Never had any crowds on the beach, no late parties or noise complaints. Family friendly, but also a private getaway for honeymooners. We will definitely rent here again.
Wow, absolutely fabulous! We're thrilled you so thoroughly enjoyed our getaway. It sounds like you took full advantage of all the beachy island fun opportunities - good for you (and so good for your soul)! Appreciate you being such delightful guests - we'd love to have you back!
The house was super clean and cozy. We enjoyed the evening breeze sitting on the patio listening to the waves break. It is only a short walk to the beach. We brought a wagon which made it easy to take your supplies all at once. There is great fishing so be sure to bring a popping rod. The neighbors on both sides of the house are super nice. My only negative would be, they need a couple of large pots for cooking. Other than that we had a great time. We highly recommend this vacation home.
Clean, cozy and beach breezes, thrilled to hear your getaway was a success! Thanks for the nice review and appreciate the suggestion. We'll see what we can do about getting a larger 1 or 2 pots in there. Come on back again for some more island time!
Great house, very clean and well kept. Very short walk to the beach (approx. 3 houses away), which was nice since we had two small kids and always seemed to forget SOMETHING :) Would definitely recommend and go back again!
Would love to have you back again! Glad you enjoyed our home and beach location. Thanks for choosing our home for your vacation time. :)
My family and I loved this beach house. The beach was a minute walk and the house itself was the perfect size. The only downside is grocery stores are about 35 min away so I would suggest buying groceries on the way down.
So glad you loved our home and the nearby beach! Thank you. And we agree, even though there is a small convenience (basic essentials) store in the community and Seven Seas Grocery fairly close, it is wise to come with groceries in tote. We'd be thrilled to have you back again!
This property is located just feet from the beach! Everything in the home is beautiful, clean and well laid out. It is a perfect place to come with family and enjoy the beach
Delighted you enjoyed your beach getaway on the island! We'd love to have you back again. Thanks for being such a great guest!
we've stayed her twice. Really like the house. Unfortunately this time the beach & ocean were filled with trash.
Thanks for the return trip! We LOVE our repeat guests! That's too bad about the beach and water. It's normally amongst the most pristine in the area. The county clears the beach regularly, but periodic rainstorms can churn things up (incl coastal trash from those pesky litter bug types, sadly).
New house with direct TV in all 3 bedrooms; 2 decks overlooking over the ocean; washer and dryer were a huge plus; quiet beach 1 minute walk from door; grocery stores can be found 15- 20 min N on Galveston Island. Lots to do in Galveston 35 min away- museums, restaurants and 2 breweries. But really the beautiful beach is the draw. We look forward to returning to the area and hopefully finding availability at this house!
Appreciate the thoughtful review! So glad you thoroughly enjoyed all the activities surrounding our home and especially the beach! We'd definitely love to have you back!
"My husband, sons,and I have stayed two weekends here, and definitely want to spend a week later when we can fit it in. The house and area are incredible! We loved sitting on the beautiful large deck with our morning coffee or afternoon cocktail to enjoy the beautiful view and hear the sounds of the ocean. The house is new, comfortably furnished with quality furnishings and very good quality sheets and towels. The house is very well equipped and even has a nice, large laundry room. We like to enjoy the beach - just lounging and walking, but there are a lot of other things to do here as well. We are thinking of renting a beach golf cart the next time. We recommend this house for a relaxing "leave it all behind" weekend or week. WIFI reception is great. The views and sound of the ocean are superb!"
My husband and 4 young sons had the best vacation ever! The house is decorated nicely and very casual and comfortable with high quality new bedding and furnishings. The activities for a young family are endless, the beach is less than 100 feet away and goes on for miles--a child's paradise of new things to experience and enjoy. The views from both decks are endless and awesome, not to mention the sound of the ocean. My eight year old cannot wait to go back and learn to crab and surf fish. I highly recommend for a family vacation or weekend!
My family spent a week and can't wait to go back. Because this place is somewhat remote and unspoiled our kids ages 1 to 14 found a multitude of new things to enjoy. This house is in the right location and position for total family vacation enjoyment, almost right on the beach which goes on for many miles. The house was well built for casual and comfortable living. Everything is there, just bring enough groceries! Views and sound of the surf are unbelievable. We really enjoyed sitting out on both balconies and enjoying the views in the mornings and every night!
