WARNINGS:  It is very important to know that all the dunes and bushes on the island are the poisonous snakes’ habitats. This has been known in Galveston for many years back.  And the dunes are the protected areas. Please stay off the dunes and bushes. Stay on the dune walkover getting to the beach. Always watch your steps when you walk on grasses or the walkover.

BUGS:  ants, chiggers, palmetto bugs, cockroaches, silverfishes, spiders, love bugs, big bugs, small bugs, tiny bugs, and all kinds of bugs are part of Galveston's life.  Because we are in the coastal region with wetlands and open ditches surrounding.  To control these creatures, the house has been spraying quarterly and annually by our local pest control company. Per our pest control company, the spraying does not prevent them to crawl or fly in during the open and close of getting in and out of the house.  However, if they do fly in, they won't survive.  You might see them unexpectedly during your stay.

Do not leave the door open, close it immediately after use, turn off the outside lights at the doorways also help to minimize them from getting inside. The lights attract mosquitos and bugs.
Please do not bring food, snacks, candy into the bedrooms to prevent ants. Please do not leave food crumbs on the floor, inside the house will attract ants, or the ground floor, outside where the picnic tables, will attract wild animals, ants, bugs.

The house is in undeveloped communities. We do not know exactly when new construction will start or how long to expect construction on any one house to last. You may reserve a house at a time when there is no construction, but it may begin prior to your arrival.
We regret any inconvenience that may result. We have no control over these situations and are unable to refund you the money.


• Cancel 61 days or more prior to your check-in date receives a full refund less a $500 cancellation fee and the VRBO/ HomeAway service fee

• Cancel less than 60 days prior to your arrival date will not receive a refund. Unless the house is re-booked. And full or partial refund depends on the new reservation.

•  No credit will be given for shortened stays due to the last arrival or early departure for any reason.

•  No cancellation due to sickness, job loss, weather, rain, storm, hurricanes ( mandatory or not), Covid 19, pandemic, injuries, emergency, death.. or any reasons
• Because of our strict cancellation policy, WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND GUESTS SHOULD PURCHASE THE TRAVEL INSURANCE TO PROTECT YOUR INVESTMENT AND ESPECIALLY DURING THE HURRICANE SEASON, June 1 to Nov 31.  It is not much, but it's sure to save you a lot of headaches.

•  Confirmation of your booking dates:  Please note that we sometimes receive multiple inquiries for the same dates and reservations are ONLY confirmed once payment has been made and a signed rental agreement has been received with 72 hours of booking with a copy of your photo government-issued ID.  Unfortunately, we cannot hold dates
