We have been staying since January waiting on our new house to be finished, which has been a pretty stressful experience. Linda and Richard have been great and appreciate the extra efforts they have made for us to be comfortable. Great fishing around the corner and a good area to clean them. I defenitely recommend this house.

It was Get Away
It was Get Away
Property was as described and pictured. The owner was very helpful in making sure that we had a good stay. The week started out as a girls retreat and when they left my husband and two boys joined me. Would highly recommend it as girls retreat or for a small family. Place was well stocked. Nice towels, linens and very comfy full size beds. Stayed cool even in August, good a/c. Well stocked. Good TV's and internet access. Outdoor shower was the best! Hung out most of the time at the picnic table under the house. Wonderful ocean breeze and shade which was great in the August heat. Very relaxing!! My 10 y/o son thought the one room cabin seemed "adventurous."

great vacation home galveston island
This home is a great place to stay for a couple or small family, very clean, well maintained, well stocked, cold air the most important thing.. close to the beach and close to the bay, far enough away from the crowds to relax, but close enough to get to the action if you want too. the owners were are also very nice and accomidating. Thanks for the great time, showed up feeling like a guitar string,left feeling like an alfredo noodle.......

Stayed here for 4 nights. We got there on June 6th 2013 and they had just installed two brand new window a/c units that worked very well. Had a great time. Place was as described. We found a metal stake that holds an umbrella in the shed that was really helpful. Also there was a 5' umbrella in the shed that was nice. We didn't know it was there so we bought one before we got there and ended up just using two. It is about an 5 minute walk to the beach or a 60 second bike ride. Really did enjoy our stay.

Owner response: So happy you ya'll had a great time! We strive to have a comfortable clean affordable beach getaway for our guests! Looking forward to your return visit!
This beachhouse was perfect!!!!
This beachhouse was perfect!!!!
This beach house had everything we needed. It was clean and adorable and very well maintained and decorated. The A/C blew freezing even in the hot of the day, the water was nice and hot, and the beds were some of the most comfortable ever. There were plenty of towels, blankets, cookware etc. Anything you could need was there. The owners were extremely nice and very easy to work with. If you are looking for a cozy open concept type beach house it is perfect. Close enough to drive to the action but far enough away to have coffee on the porch and enjoy the silence. We have definitely found our vacation spot and we will be renting again in the future!!

We very much enjoyed our stay at the fishing shack, love the layout of the place, great location, wonderful and helpful people to rent from, There were a few issues with the cable and the internet, but all in all it was a great place to stay, I am hoping to return again soon.

The cottage was really nice, the weatrher was what we where looking for, not too hot, and for the most part sunny. Unfortunately most of the attractions that were listed as being open, were not, so i would suggest visiting closer to summer months if visiting Galveston island. As for the location of the cottagte, it suited what we wanted, a 5 minute walk the beach, and out of the way, so if you want to be in the middle of town and all the action this is not the place to be. This cottage is very open concept so there is very little space to enjoy to yourself if there are more than 2 people in your party. I would rate the rental property 4.5/5, and the over all vacation a 3.

Owner response: Thankyou for the 4.5 Stars on my cottage! Glad you all enjoyed it. I'm sorry that you found some of the area attractions closed. Your visit came on the tail end of Mardi Gras and it was a quiet time on the island after the Fat Tuesday parade. Things usually pick back up on the weekends. That is one thing that we islanders enjoy is the laid back lifestyle and the slow pace in the winter. Come back Spring Break and Summer for more lively island activities!
Nice, comfortable cottage. It's away from tourist area, so the privacy is good. Rained while I was there and was much happier to be there than a hotel. A Partition of some sort between beds and kitchen area would be nice. Would definately return.

Felt like home!!
Felt like home!!
Such a warm and inviting place for vacation..This house has it all inside and out...just show up ready for fun. Great location, close enough to everything but very private, quiet and so close to the beach!! The beds and pillows were the most comfortable I have ever found on vacation. The outdoor showers were a lifesaver with kids. We would definitely stay here again and again!!

About the owner: We love the island life! We love the cool fresh breeze from the water. We love the feel of warm sand between our toes and the smell of salt air. We love the free airshow of pelicans flying just for us! We love fresh snapper with chunks of blue crab. We love Hawaiian shaved ice on the beach!! We love the Victorican architecture and the Art Walks. We love driving for miles and being able to see the ocean! And all of this on Galveston Island!
Why the Owner Chose Palm Beach:
This is a central location to the west end of the island. Very near the beach. About 1/4 mile. In the middle of wide open spaces. Country living. Down the street from where our friends keep their horses. Still only 20 minutes away from the Historic Strand Shopping and University of Texas Medical Branch. Lots of resturants easily accessible.
