PLEASE NOTE: CHECK IN TIME IS ANYTIME AFTER 3PM

EARLY CHECK IN REQUESTS:
Before you arrive in town, we need to ensure our previous guests have checked out, that the maid service and maintenance has been through the unit, and that linens and towels are fresh and ready for your visit. All this takes time and needs to be done before you check in. Check-in is ‪at ‬3:00 pm. Check-out is ‪at 11:00 a.m.‬ Due to the nature of the vacation rental business, housekeepers are on tight schedules. Please honor the check-out time.‬‬ Early check-ins and late check-outs are only available if another guest is not checking in or out of the property on the same day. To request an early check-in or a late check-out please message me no more than 24 hours in advance, and if available we will send you the early check-in fees.

Transit

Exploring Galveston your way: ️ Walk, pedal, or cruise in style!

Embrace the island breeze: This beauty sits in a walkable district, so lace up and explore charming streets, cafes, and historic gems. For a laid-back vibe, rent a golf cart from nearby vendors (trust us, it’s a Galveston staple!) and cruise in style. Feeling adventurous? Bring your bike and cycle along scenic paths or conquer the Seawall.

No wheels? No worries! The free Island Transit bus whisks you to major attractions, and taxis are readily available. Plus, Galveston is surprisingly compact, so walking can be a delightful way to soak in the atmosphere.

Tip: Grab a “Galveston Island Beachcomber” guide at the Visitor Center for maps, bike routes, and insider tips!

Notes

Refundable Damage Deposit for Guest Under the Age of 25: $500 (House must be left in the same clean condition).

PLEASE NOTE: CHECK-OUT IS AT 11 AM & CHECK-IN IS AT 3 PM AND ANYTIME AFTER THAT.
Due to the nature of the vacation rental business, housekeepers run on tight schedules so we ask to please honor the check-out time. As we need to ensure the house is completely done by our maid service and linens & towels are fresh and ready for your visit. All this takes time and needs to be done before you check in. Therefore, your help with a smooth check-out allows the next quests to enjoy the home. Often times, the next guest checks in just 4 hours after your departure, thus following check-out procedure and checking out on time is imperative.

EARLY CHECK IN REQUESTS:
Before we can approve your request, we need to make sure that we do not have guest checking-out on the same day your requesting early CHECK-IN. If approved, we will request early check-out fee.

LATE CHECK-OUT REQUEST: ‬‬Late check-out request are ONLY approved if the host is notified in advance by midnight the day before check-out. On a case to case bases we will approve same day late check-out ONLY if another guest is not checking in on the same day. If approved, we will request late check-out fee.

HOUSE RULES
NO SMOKING INSIDE – NO PETS – NO PARTIES

WEATHER & PEST CONCERNS:
Please take the time to consider any personal sensitivities when traveling outside of your own home. Unfortunately, we cannot control weather, wildlife, governing entities, locals, or tourists visiting the area, nor can we cater to each individual’s sensitivities. We strongly recommend researching the city you plan to stay and travel to.

BUGS:
Texas, the Gulf Coast Region, & Galveston have a variety of bugs & insects (mosquitoes, ants, flies, roaches, beetles, wasps, & spiders). Occasionally you will see ducks, frogs, snakes & even alligators around specific vegetation. Bugs and insects are not associated with cleanliness issues and often come from outside. We do pest control every 6 months & spray the interior & exterior home regularly & can provide receipts/schedules of such.

WEATHER:
Hurricanes are a yearly issue around (Jun.- Nov.) in the Texas Gulf Coast Region, & in Galveston and last for 6 months. While these brutal storms can technically happen any time of year, the significant amount of rain will infamously cause bugs and insects to be seen inside the home.

In the SUMMER months (Jun.- Aug.), temperatures in Texas, the Gulf Coast Region, & Galveston are extremely hot and can soar up to 110 degrees.

In the WINTER months (Nov.- Mar.), the 2021 Snowpocalypse has taught us that temperatures can drop below freezing to 13°F.

Due to highly destructive weather in Texas and the Gulf Coast Region, governing entities can disrupt power, water, gas & cutting off access to gas & food supply lines for days. Though these extreme instances happen rarely, they are crucial concerns & should be taken seriously along with any mandated evacuation orders.

We realize that much, if not all, of those mentioned above is common knowledge to anyone who’s ever lived in Galveston or stayed in the great state of Texas. We also recognize that not everyone traveling has had these prior personal experiences. We believe in being straightforward, and giving every guest a safe and pleasant stay for everyone is our top priority.

Refund Policy:
We are unable to provide refunds or compensation to guests. Period. For any reason. You must read, understand, acknowledge, & agree to all of the listing instructions & requirements that are provided everywhere in this listing before you book. You should fully understand any foreseen or unforeseen events that may cause your stay to be shortened.

Your decision is your responsibility & will not be overridden by Airbnb. The goal is complete transparency so you, the guest, can make informed booking decisions. We are happy & available to answer any additional questions that you may have, so please do not hesitate to reach out.

Thank you in advance for your responsibility in your choice to travel to Galveston, TX in the Gulf Coast Region.
