Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.
Learn more about our review moderation.

What a wonderful stay in Galveston at the Mello Mango. Just a short walk to the beach, restaurants, and the Pleasure Pier. The house itself is so inviting and comfortable. Thank you!

Mellow Mango
This house was so perfect for my family. It was stocked with more than I could ever desire. It has everything you need: towels, tons of room for the 5 of us., modern conveniences, great outdoor shower, and one short block to the beach. Best place I’ve stayed in Galveston and we come once or twice a year! We’ll be back for sure! Btw owner is always available by text and super accommodating!

Quaint & Lovely
Our stay here on Father's Day weekend was wonderful. Shelene has the house well furnished with absolutely everything you would need for a long weekend at the beach. It is located right off the sea wall in an area you can easily walk or bike to all the eating spots and sea-wall shops. We especially enjoyed the small backyard space in the evenings. I highly recommend this place for families that have teens that want to skate and bike, and older adults that wish to relax with a glass of wine after a long day at the beach! Five Stars!
