This beautiful 1st row waterfront home has unobstructed beach views from 2 bedrooms, the family room as well as the kitchen.

Located in the Sea Isle community in Galveston, TX, this 4 bedroom and 2 bath treasure was featured on HGTV's Beachfront Bargain Hunt and is kid and family friendly!

OUTDOORS;

Great place!
5/5 stars
Banana Hut was amazing! Everything we hoped for! Amazing views! House had everything we needed. The outdoor shower was perfect for washing off after the beach! Can’t think of anything that would’ve made the trip better. Definitely recommend!

Perfect Trip
5/5 stars
This house was clean, well stocked, and had perfect and direct access to the beach. There is a beach view from the living room as well as two bedrooms. Large patio was perfect for morning and evening sitting and watching waves. We stayed comfortably with 4 adults (two elderly) and three kids (2 teens, 1 child). The stair were very manageable for my older parents as well, they were very direct up and down. No stairs in the house to climb and a walk in shower in one bathroom made it easier for them as well. Dog friendly house, was the welcoming to our pets also. Costumer service was excellent with check in prior to the trip, checking in the day of, and assisting with check out. We will book with them again in the future.

Banana Yellow Beachfront home
5/5 stars
This house was perfect for us, enough room that no one felt on top of each other. Nice bathrooms, A/C worked well, hot tub was nice and customer service was great. They immediately responded when we had a question, very polite and professional. We’ve rented several times from several places and this was the best customer service I have ever received. Jessica was great!!
- Annie

Great beach vacation
5/5 stars
Everything at Banana Hut was just as promised. We had a great vacation with our extended family. The hot tub is a nice addition, although the weather was too hot hot to use it. Our second year; we’ll be back.

Banana Hut was amazing
5/5 stars
This house is exactly as described! We had our family of 8 and had plenty of room to spread out. The house is nicely decorated and comfortable. The views from the deck are incredible and we enjoyed being able to walk back and forth from the house to the beach. We will definitely stay here again next time!
- Amanda
Right. On. The. Beach.
5/5 stars
Such a nice house to be right on the beach. Plenty of room for our family to have separate spaces and common area. Huge deck which could be made better with some more chairs(there are only four) but otherwise excellent. Full outdoor bathroom below the house to run up and use and shower off before heading in the house.

Great beach getaway!

We had a wonderful time. Incredible beachfront location literally steps out the back door to wide open beach. Host was very communicative - will come back!

Exceptional Location - Responsive Management
4/5 stars
If you're looking for fancy-schmancy - this isn't your place, but if you want outstanding view and location and direct beach access, it is. You cannot beat the unobstructed view of the gulf, and the property is clean, serene, and peaceful, and the beds are great! We didn't receive advance instructions for access, but that could have been a spam glitch, and is not uncommon for b&b rentals. We also didn't know (and should have) that the AC/heat is controlled remotely by the management. We spent several frustrating hours trying to adjust the temperature, only finding out we couldn't when we reached out to the property manager. Knowing this in advance should be a part of the property instructions. We were also told the property instructions would be provided in a tablet "in the kitchen". We looked EVERYWHERE and never found a tablet. Oh yes, NOTE to Management: Please replace the shower head in the second bathroom, it shoots high-velocity water straight into your face and you can't adjust it - as such, that shower was completely unusable. And finally, when we arrived, there were cascarones debris all over the back deck, which in this time of COVID was troubling as it signaled some lax cleaning standards. Otherwise, everything was great. Winter Bush, the property manager was very responsive and courteous, which we appreciated.

We loved our stay here! This house was everything we ever wanted in a vacation rental. The rooms were spacious and the beds were comfortable. We were impressed by the overall cleanliness and the care taken to ensure we were safe - there were even disposable masks available! We will be back!

Great
5/5 stars
This turned out to be one of our best family get together! The beach house was everything advertised. Right on the beach, easy access, and clear instructions. When we first arrive we had a problem with the thermostat, but after one call to the owner it was corrected immediately. We are thinking of doing the same thing for Christmas if it's available.
- Forrest
Perfect family getaway
5/5 stars
This house & its beachfront location were a perfect getaway for our family. We booked 10 days out & loved it. We're already taking about our next trip. Winter is always fantastic to work with. She seems to find just the right places for our beach stays, no matter our length of stay and preferred location. We'll definitely be back!
