It's so great that yall had such a blast at the Blue Crab Bungalow! We try very hard to make the home have everything you could need or want. I love to cook, and I assume vacationers are staying in a house instead of a hotel, because they want to use the kitchen, so I make sure anything you would need to cook and eat at the house is provided. I'm also excited you appreciated all the beachy and tropical decorations. I know it was a great location for the 4th of July fireworks display on Seawall as well! You were right there in the middle of the show and had a great view from that side of Seawall! Thank you for the compliment and I thoroughly enjoyed working and communicating with you before your stay and I'm so excited that we could provide the setting for an amazing family vacation!

So glad you enjoyed your vacation!I'm happy you found the house to be exactly as described. We work hard to portray it accurately and the guest reviews also give a chance for others to describe the house as well. Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We also believe communication is important and we always happy to give directions or answer any questions before or during your stay! I'm glad you were able to enjoy the restaurants w/i walking distance. One of the best Seafood restaurants on Seawall is just 2 blocks from the house with an amazing patio dinning! Hope to have you back soon!
Gorgeous place. Well decorated. Had everything we need there for our stay. Can't beat the price. Will book again really soon.… More

So glad you were able to surprise your wife with a second honeymoon. And I cannot think o a more romantic place than Galveston. I'm not sure I told you, but Larry and I met in Galveston, were married in Galveston and spend many days and nites on the Island. As soon as one drives over the causeway - all cares seem to vanish.
