Very nice house and location. There are several musty rugs in the house than can cause allergy/asthma flare ups. There are three flights of open stairs that can be difficult/dangerous for some. It is a bit difficult to roll a wagon with supplies through the yard and out to the beach.

The house was clean and very nice, my cousin has good taste. We did replace the broken light fixture by the front door, so don't pay who ever was supposed to do that job. The only thing I can see that would improve this property is to have a lift, that is A LOT of stairs. We had an awesome time and are looking forward to our next visit at the end of the month.

There weren't really any surprises - the reviews and description were accurate. The good things that stood out were that the location was great (a short, easy walk to the beach - even with a 2 and 4 year old) and the view was spectacular. Not so great was the mustiness that has us sniffling and that stayed around the 5 days we were there (probably problematic for all beachside rentals). Overall the positives way outweighed the negatives and we'd stay there again.

Cabin is nice for a getaway but doesn't have very good walking access to the beach and the actual beach is very narrow so if you have kids you will be paranoid watching for cars the whole time. Also...Cabin was not very clean. I had to pay a cleaning fee yet it was very dirty. Pet hair was everywhere. Just needed a good top to bottom cleaning & dusting. Might also be a good time update some of the furniture that was heavily stained & worn out.

We have rented this cabin many times and will rent it again. Was not happy that the septic light was on all week because we were worried there might be a problem. Did not do laundry as a result. We know the staff did all that they could do and our stay was wonderful.

Great location, quiet part of island, close to rollover pass. Perfect for small get togeather. Had 2 gran kids ; 4&2 years old, bedroom set up with the double and two twins was the greatest idea, both jumped in their beds and slept with no problems- think a million $ could be made marketing this bedroom layout to new parents with kids who won't sleep in their own beds!
Great little place to stay.

Our stay at Happy Honu was wonderful. The house is great the beach was almost private and the island is is charming. We will rent it again next summer.

Location was perfect like having your own private beach. Beach house is much nicer than the it justice.Lots of stairs makes for a good workout.Showers down stairs were great after coming back from the beach.Would love to come back next year!

Aside from the weather being a bit erratic (but it is still winter!) and fighting the Houston traffic in getting there:), we had a wonderful time. Lots to do including biking and castle-building on the beach, deep-sea fishing and just plain relaxing out on the sun! This is our second annual stay at the Happy Honu and I'm sure we'll be back. Actually, we're considering a mid-summer stay if there is availability.

We always have a great time when we stay at Happy Hona. My only concern is the steps, I had a small child age six visit for a day and she trip on steps. Luckily we were right there, because of the opening distance in between the steps, she almost went all the way thur which would have landed her on the ground. Don't get me wrong they are probably built to code and are very nice, I just wish there was someway to enclose the underneath the opening of steps, because that would have been a horrible outcome. They do have gates on the second level to keep closed, but not on the upper level. I did mention it to Cobb's when returning the key. This place is very clean and fun. Looking forward to maybe another stay this year.

We (girlfriend, her boys & friends) had a great time! Beach was awesome, house was very nice. Wind was howling all weekend, that was the only damper. If you haven't been on Bolivar lately you should go. We look forward to returning soon.

This is the 2nd time that we have rented Happy Honu and we will rent it again next summer. We love this place.

Cheerful little beach house with amazing views and a quiet beach. The home is very comfortable and well decorated.
The Direct TV did not work all week and we had problems with the lights not working on the entire lower level making arrivals back home after dark tricky walking up all the steps with flashlights.

We had a wonderful time, there was plenty of room and the house was nicely decorated. The only problem is that no one comes by with the motorgrader and cleans the beach shore. By the second day the sea weed was so bad that you couldnt get to the beach. we stay in galveson for several years and all the other private houses that we have stayed in have a service that blades the beach in front of the rental property. Overall the house was nice and we would stay there again.
