We had a family reunion at this beautiful home, with 8 adults and six kids ages 11-78. Every one of us absolutely loved our stay here.

The home was super comfortable, well stocked and with clear instructions. Owners Anna and Gary were impressively responsive when we needed help, even though they were on vacation.

The elevator made this family vacation possible for our group, that was the icing on the cake.

Thank you, Anna and Gary for sharing your amazing home with us!

The house was beautiful and in the best location. The house had anything and everything we needed. The pictures do not do the house justice! The host was available at all times and responded to anything we needed. We would definitely stay here again!

This was our second January stay at Sandy Sea-cret. I can’t imagine a more beautiful and welcoming home for a winter getaway. The view from the large Gulf-facing windows is incredible! The house is spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. We alternated eating out at some of Galveston’s great restaurants and cooking for our group of 9, and found the kitchen to be very well-stocked with everything we needed. The two refrigerators came in very handy, as did the elevator. Our hosts Gary and Anna provided all the details we needed and quickly responded to any communications. Thanks for anothrr
