We enjoyed our stay in quite neighborhood near the beach. The house was perfect for our family. We loved the tiki bar . We cooked out often. I love that there were condiments and soaput for washer. Great time!
Wonderful and well appointed home close to the beach. Great house for kids with a cute kid's room stocked with games and adorable beach theme decorations. Our grandkids loved it! The downstairs, Tiki bar area, was a great place for the kids to ride their bikes and play. We just wish the weather had cooperated but thankful for having such a welcoming home to stay in during the storms. Close to the marina, tennis courts, restaurant and play ground. Looking forward to next time!
We had a great time out there and the view was awesome. The property was well kept and beautiful. I'd like to thank the owners for the bottle of wine that they left for me and my spouse. We really enjoyed it. All the rooms were nice and comfortable. I liked the way the kitchen and eating area was arranged. I can't say enough, but the front deck was gorgeous. If I had to build another house, I would build one like this. We thank the owners for allowing us to share their home for our vacation.

Our family recently stayed at The Driftwood for a weekend getaway. We have 2 girls, ages 7 & 9. The entire family had a great time. The beach is a short drive (5 minutes), and we spent the day playing in the surf and soaking up the sun. The downstairs cantina of The Driftwood is where we spent most of our time. We cooked and ate our meals outside. Also, there is a ping pong table and washers -the girls played games the entire time!! The inside of the house was FANTASTIC. The pictures were nice, but the house is even nicer in person. The layout was perfect for our family...and even a few more people could have fit!! We really enjoyed our time and we will most definitely be back. The owner is quick to respond if we had any questions.
We booked 4 nights at the Driftwood and could not have been happier with our stay. First of all, the house has been recently remodeled and is GORGEOUS. The owners have great taste! The beds, linens pillows all appeared brand new and were so comfortable. I have back pain at times and often staying at a hotel I will have trouble sleeping if the beds are low quality...not so at this place!
The house comfortably slept 8 people. We traveled with both adults and kids and there was so much to do. Inside they provide many board games to get the kids off screens (mine discovered Clue!!), there is a ping pong table downstairs, and also a huge playground and nice pool (with shaded lounging for adults) within view of the house. We could see our kids playing on the playground while we sat at the Tiki Bar in the carport, win/win! There are multiple decks for lounging and watching the incredible sunset (or you can walk down to the marina and sit on the water, which we also did, while enjoying a cold beverage from the restaurant on property).
Inside there are big, flat screen tv's in every room and a PS4 in the "kids' room". I had to drag my kids off property to go to the beach, lol!! Honestly the best way to get them to leave the property was to offer a ride in the golf cart! This was a blast! I highly recommend renting one. The beach is a 3 minute drive away via the golf cart... There is a rental service down the road and they provide drop off and pick up...super easy. We took the cart to the beach every day and also at night for mini-crab hunting and a bonfire. We also drove it to the neighborhood pier and caught 4 fish and 6 crabs in an hour!!! There is a store right there that sells bait as well as some groceries and toiletries and anything else you might have forgotten. If you don't want a golf cart you could bring bikes...I saw many people doing this and the property is very bike friendly.
We had a great time enjoying the town of Galveston (a quick 15-20 min drive). We went to Pleasure Pier, shopped on the Strand, and ate some delicious seafood. Did not have time to do the harbor cruise/dolphin watch tour, see the historic homes or do the ghost tour... Well that just means we will get to do these things on our next visit
Do yourself a favor and book the Driftwood for your next beach vacation. You will love the house, love the amenities and love the location. The owners make everything so easy and the rental process was a snap. See you soon Driftwood!!!
