About Rita Forness
I'm an interior designer that grew up in Victorian homes. I have always had an affinity for them, as well as the history behind them. Galveston has the highest concentration of American Victorian architecture in the US, which has always drawn me to this city. Plus, I'm a bit of a history buff, and Galveston is so seeped in a rich history. It gives me such great pleasure to share this city with everyone who visits our home. Plus who can resist the pull of the beach?
Rita Forness purchased this House in 2017
Why Rita Forness chose San Jacinto
Seabreeze Bungalow is in the perfect location, close to the beach, restaurants, and shops nestled in a quiet residential neighborhood. Homes built after the great storm, were often built with materials from houses demolished by the 1900 storm. This bungalow is fun, a bit quirky and is definitely full of charm! We hope you fall in love with this little gem as much as we have!
What makes this House unique
Located on the less crowded low density East End of Galveston island allows easy walks or bicycle rides to local family owned restaurants but still only a short 1 or 2 block walk to the beach. This vacation home enjoys high 10' ceilings and several large windows in each room allowing for a light and airy vacation experience.

Thank you Amy! I’m glad y’all enjoyed your stay and Mardi Gras! Please come back anytime!
Wonderful Stay, Wonderful Hostess, Wonderful Cottage!
We were so excited to find this little gem in Galveston. We took our family for a quick getaway and loved every minute of our stay. The cottage was decorated beautifully, was very clean, and had lots of room to relax and enjoy.
My husband and I loved the comfortable king bedroom, and my two kiddos thought they had died and gone to heaven each having their own large bedrooms. Every bedroom had so much charm. The beds were all incredibly comfortable with nice linens. It's hard to say which one we liked the best. The living room had plenty of space for our family to spread out. The main room and bedrooms also each had a nice television. The bathrooms are clean and updated. The kitchen has also been updated and had everything we needed to cook a nice dinner. The home was built in 1903 but lives very comfortably today.
The location is wonderful. We took a short walk to the beach and restaurants on the Seawall. The neighborhood is charming and felt safe. It's also a quick drive to the Strand, Pier 21, Bishop's Palace etc. When we come back to Galveston, we will definitely stay here again.
The owner was wonderful - courteous, attentive, professional, thoughtful. Rita gave us tons of recommendations for restaurants, things to do, fishing charters, etc. Every recommendation was spot on. She even researched to find he best fishing charter company to refer. Rita obviously takes so much pride in sharing her cottage and love of Galveston. She had thoughtful little touches everywhere in the house that made us feel at home. She was available by text and extemely friendly. I would not hesitate to give her 5 stars.
We will be planning another trip to stay here soon! Thanks Rita! It was just perfect!
Thank you Jennifer! I’m so happy that your family had such a great time. I’m glad you went home with lots of yummy fish! We look forward to your next visit.
Beautiful Property in Galveston
We had a friend's reunion in Galveston, and really loved the comfort and charm of this beautiful cottage. The furnishings were elegant and comfortable. The location was close enough to walk to the beach and a few restaurants, and was an easy drive to the Strand and other historic sites. Rita, the owner, was responsive to messages and very helpful with her recommendations. If we find ourselves back in Galveston we will definitely consider staying here again.
Thank you Linda! I’m so glad y’all had a great time! We enjoyed the goodies you left! We look forward to your next visit!
The house, decor and distance from the beach is great!!
Charming and very comfortable
The house is adorable, and the owner was very prompt with responses. She was also very helpful with recommendations for various restaurants on the island. For our family of five (3 adult children), the house was spacious and the beds were all very comfortable. The beach is a very short walk, and this part of the beach was not crowded at all. We had a very nice and relaxing visit. We will come back.
Thank you Kimberly! We look forward to your next visit!
The property was prettier than the pictures. The location was great.

Thanks so much Peggy! Your family was a delight!
