  • Such a wonderful beach house!


    We had a wonderful time in this cottage. Everything neat, and clean. Well appointed, and everything worked. 1/2 mile walk to the beach Close to Strand, Moody Gardens and Seawolf Park. Perfect house for our vacation

    This is a really nice cottage in an excellent neighborhood. We stayed for four nights but would have enjoyed staying longer. It's an easy walk to the beach, and just a few minute's drive from all Galveston has to offer. I would definitely stay here again.

    The property is as-advertised, amply stocked for our stay. 1 residential block’s walk to the beach was perfect for us. Outdoor rinse platform was so handy & helpful. Much more space than nearby condos offer. Will look for this listing again!

  • Perfect little cottage


    My grandkids and I decided to go to Galveston for some R&R towards the end of June. The cottage was as described. It was very neat, clean and easily walking distance to the beach. One of the best features was it allowed for some great family time, since all but the bedrooms, were an open area. They even provide a neat little shower area outside so you can wash all the sand off that you accumulated from the beach. You could walk the beaches both morning and night without the rush of people. The cottage is about 8-10 miles from the touristy area, it’s in more of a residential area, which made it perfect. The night walks were illuminated by the moon instead of the city lights. The cottage also provides a couple chairs, an umbrella as well as beach towels for your use. I discovered they also have extra linens in the little benches at the end of beds. If I were to go to Galveston again, I would rent this same cabin! You might consider taking some flip flops as the walk to the beach is quite toasty and hard on the feet as well there are stickers along the way, should you try to walk on the grass. Kudos to House keeping they had this little cottage in wonderful shape upon our arrival.

    Perfect spot if you’re looking for a quiet beach stay. This house is walking distance to a nice, secluded beach on the west end of the island with about a 20 minute drive to popular destinations during peak time. Bedrooms are small, but the family spaces are ample.
