The house was comfortable with a nice deck on top and relaxing swings in shade at lower level. I loved the lighthouse decor. The beds were very comfortable with nice sheets. The house is not directly on the beach but is one house away and has ocean/beach views from both floors. You can have your morning coffee and see whether others are setting up on the private beach but having a spot close was never an issue even when people were there. Its a very short walk to beach for a quick stroll down or to set up umbrellas and chairs. Nice, comfortable, and quiet. The neighbors were nice. It's clean and has full kitchen and a washer/drier which was a reason we chose this over another rental. The washer doesn't have a central agitator so a little loud but its fine if you close the doors to that room. The couches are comfy and they have tv, dvd player, and books for the reader if you didn't bring your own. Shopping is close by to stock the fridge. I did see local police patrolling Galveston which made me feel more secure about a vacation spot.. not knocking Galveston I had never been before so did not know what to expect. I never worried about where we were. I thought it was a nice relaxing stress free vacation. We loved it and our kids loved it.
I love this beach house! I've stayed here many times and will continue to go back to the Lighthouse! It's a beautiful place in a great location...just a few yards from the beach! My family loves the house which is spacious and updated! One of the things I like best about the Lighthouse is the kitchen with a view of the beach! We also love the swings downstairs and the horseshoe pits for a little competition! It's a great place to relax and get away from the stress of the city! I highly recommend the Lighthouse and the owner goes above and beyond to make our stay the best ever!
My family and I rented for the weekend and it truly was home away from home! It was a perfect distance to the beach, spacious flooring, and we Loved the porch! We spent 90% of our time just sitting there and watching the waves! The owner was so nice, very accommodating and helpful! We highly recommend staying at the lighthouse!
