About Elizabeth Dean
I am an IBC, an "Islander by Choice"! I came to Galveston to go to school and fell in love with the community and all it has to offer. Downtown shopping and nightlife, fishing, paddle boarding, surfing, jogging the seawall, and some of the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets you've ever seen. I love the close-knit community feel and that you can get pretty much anywhere on the island within 15 minutes. I met my husband in Galveston and am proud to raise my kids here.
Elizabeth Dean purchased this House in 1999
Why Elizabeth Dean chose San Jacinto
My husband purchased the home because of it's proximity to the beach and he loved the cottage style. The home was originally a single floor and needed some major love. He raised the property adding a second floor and a wrap-around balcony to highlight the amazing panoramic beach views. We lived in the house for a few years with our two kids, but decided to move to a larger home as our family grew. My husband and I have always said we would move back once our kids were out of the house!!
What makes this House unique
The biggest plus is its location to the beach and to downtown. You can't beat the beach views or the fact that you can hop on your bike and take a seawall bike cruise or head downtown for amazing dining, nightlife and shopping. Galveston has some of the most unique shops around.

Location, Location, Location!!
This was the perfect little spot! It was right off the beach, so the morning views and breeze were amazing. We mainly stuck to the beaches and Seawall, and being one block away made it easy to get the beach gear and stroller back and forth. It was also just a short drive to all the little shops and restaurants downtown. The owners definitely paid attention to what we might need, as it was very well stocked on the necessities. Overall it is a cute place with a location you can't beat!
Thank you Rebekah! We're so glad you enjoyed our cottage as much as we do!
Awesome beach house
This house is awesome! Full kitchen with everything you need to prepare meals. Super comfy beds! Lots of sleeping room! AC works great! I loved the beach decor! It is about 1 block from the beach, easily walkable! Away from the hubbub of the touristy area.
The AC unit downstairs is a little noisy. Don't forget to buy dishwashing soap and trash bags, as there were none in the house!
I would ABSOLUTELY stay here again in a heartbeat!
Cute house and great location.
Negatives-shower is dangerous to get in and out of. A couple of us almost fell getting out. Also not enough toilet paper, paper towel and soap for shower. I had to run out and buy these items. The Kevo key system didn’t work for me but I was able to call the property manager and got in another way.
All in all it was great for the price.
Very clean, close to the beach and the balcony view of the beach! Owner was very quick to respond to questions and very nice!
Everything was fine except the KEVO access to the cottage.
This was a wonderful location for us and the cottage was in perfect condition, Very clean, great supplies with all the appliances in working order. We had easy access to the beach & restaurants. The owners were very cordial and when we reported a mishap they were very accommodating. I would plan on staying again if we were approved to do so. The only complaint was we lost a day due to our inability to download the KEVO lock access & had to spend our first night in a local hotel. We "received" the program, but apparently never downloaded it. When the owner realized this the next morning she bent over backwards to help get us into the cottage & the rest of the time we just used the key to lock it. I highly recommend this place for a small group of 4 maximum.
Super cute and comfortable. Awesome view. Great location, we only used the car once after we arrived
Charming home with exceptional views. Everything felt new and fresh! Everything we needed or wanted was there. We had the best time! Would definitely rent again!
