  • Wonderful Oasis


    This beautiful home felt like our private little get away. It had everything we needed and things we didn't even know we wanted. Comfortable beds and furniture. All kitchen supplies you could imagine including dishwasher, washer/dryer, microwave, coffee pot and Keurig. Park-like feel to the front and back yard with all the trees and greenery. We spent hours on the front and back porches, visiting and watching the birds and squirrels. The seawall was very near (1 1/2 blocks), making walks to the beach an ease. And Murdock's was visible/walkable. There were 2 weather events while we were in Galveston, but we barely heard them from inside the quiet safety of the home. Lovely remodeled older home with all the modern conveniences, would highly recommend a stay here. We are older, retired and the door lock/app was not an issue, don't let other comments intimidate you.
