I live in Galveston now, but still have a home where it snows--in KC! I own a dog day care and boarding business in Galveston, so come see us! Judy
Judy Shorman purchased this house in 2011
I am currently the Sunny Beach HOA President, and love our small community, with a sand dune restoration project going.We purchased our little beach bungalow for the great neighborhood, and the proximity to all of the activities and historic district that Galveston offers. Our Beach Retreat is also known by many repeat guests as Athen's Nest and is perfect for that quiet, romantic getaway. Bring family, friends or just come by yourself to enjoy nature and some 'down' time to relax on your own.
Our home is great for just staying put and relaxing! We absolutely love to watch the ever changing gulf views. The water is clear blue and flat one day and the next it is choppy with large waves. Our home has unobstructed views and a great place to watch for porpoise, shrimping boats, sailing regattas (they sail right past our home), fabulous birds fly over in various formations, shelling, watching people ride down the beach on horseback, beautiful sunrises over the water plus scenic full moons.
If you're in the mood for more action, head into historic Galveston for fun restaurant dining, visiting the historic Strand, Moody Gardens, sea turtle exhibit, museums, watch the large ships come into port.....a ton of activity to choose from only minutes from our Beach Retreat.
Many remember our Beach Retreat as Athen's Nest and it is perfect for couples and small groups. For larger gatherings, it is perfect to rent with the adjacent Beach Retreat next door (owned by our good neighbor) for additional space. Both homes work perfectly together!

We had such a great family vacation at this lovely home. We had one child and 2 dogs with us and the fenced yard was such a plus! Also, the house was so close to the beach. You can sit under the house in the shade and grill dinner or lunch and still see and hear the waves. The house was also very well stocked. We appreciated that there was soap, coffee filters and even a few paper plates so we didn't feel like we needed to rush to the store first thing.
We spent 6 wonderful nights at this house and had the best time. Perfect location, far enough from town to make you feel that you are out of the main stream yet close enough to run to the store if needed. Beautifully kept house, plenty of room and the deck is to die for. Loved sitting out every morning having coffee and every evening having cocktails. It was great being steps away from the beach. We could take the dog for walks on the beach without worrying about her. Thanks Judy for a wonderful vacation, it was everything we had hoped for and more. You can bet we will be back!
Spent three nights at this beach retreat and it was wonderful! the pictures on the website are accurate, but don't convey the coziness of the house. It was clean, well stocked and very well taken care of. We hope to be back soon! Thanks Judy!
What a fabulous place to stay. We really really enjoyed how gorgeous the views are and how comfortable this beach house is. It was nice and clean and ready to go.
The photo's are accurate and this comfortable beach house was just such a pleasure. The deck is very comfortable I really like the table outside for outside dining. The fabulous the sunrises and sunsets are breathtaking. The kitchen had all the cookware one would need. Just bring your food, and your ready to go. The distance to restaurants and nearby activities is also great since your only a few minutes away from everything you need. We can't wait to go back!
We stayed at this home when it was managed by Castaways. Nothing in Galveston has been as wonderful. I was hoping the house survived Ike. I went by to look at it and found it looking better than ever. The deck off the back was marvelous when we stayed there! The kids found hermit crabs to admire on the beach at sunset and spent hours burying themselves in the sand. Now there is a washer and dryer, I see that is all that was lacking. A must for washing towels and beachwear each day.
I am glad we have found how to rent it again, you can bet we will be back.
I have just returned from a week at this house and it was really a comfortable house. All amenities are as stated in the listing. Management company was attentive to needs and answered all questions. Pictures are accurate, very close to the beach. Had a great time and look forward to spending time again soon!
