About Richard D
We moved to Galveston from the DFW area in 2005. Started buying and remodeling homes for vacation rentals in 2007. We fell in love with Galveston and all the people on the Island. We have very much enjoyed sharing our homes with guests coming for a visit to Galveston.
Richard D purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Richard D chose San Jacinto
The home is in a perfect location. Central to everything on the Island. It is a short walk to the beaches, and about 1/2 mile to the new Pleasure Pier.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Great beach cottage!
My three adult boys and I recently vacationed in this awesome, clean, well- maintained, and whimsically decorated beach cottage. Richard, the owner, was very accommodating, and kept in contact to make sure everything was acceptable. We hope to return to Galveston next summer, and definitely want to stay at this exact location! Five stars from us!!
House was perfectly suited for a family vacation. Proximity to beach and the pier was amazing.
Unfortunately not the best stay due to air conditioning problems.
Nice home, needs work in many areas. A decluttering would help.
Needs window units for when the air is not working correctly or portable heaters if there is no heat.
Owner gave a small refund for our stay due to his air conditioning going out and did offer to move us.
We chose not to move at a 4pm on 10-14-18 do to it being our anniversary and we had plans that evening. Plus, we would be departing in a day and half.
I know my review is based on our stay.
Out of 8 days we had little to zero air for 5 days. We noticed the air was not working well when we got there. A very poor system for a split level home. Needs some window units as a back up system.
We decided to be troopers and ride it out . Our anniversary trip went well . This was the only downside to the entire trip. So I’m not complaining.... it’s just our unfortunate experience and those things happen.
Richard was very understanding about the situation and had fans sent over. Thank you!
I think for the normal stay in this home is perfect for most. Lots of beds. A TV downstairs might be helpful in that master bedroom . The patio furniture needs a clean up.
If you have any small children or elderly people with any walking issues the spiral staircase could be an issue. Be careful!
The house is well furnished. Some very nice art. Maybe needs a deeper cleaning in some areas. More kitchen soap and toilet paper products would be helpful. I bring a lot from home, so we were ok.
Richard we appreciate the small refund and you working with us. We tried not to complain about the unfortunate timing of the air conditioning problem.
We know things happen.
I would suggest travelers to ask lots of questions about any property you choose to rent. Above anything please enjoy the beauty of Galveston! Many amazing restaurants and the beach of course, is lovely. Be safe and enjoy!
Always beware of your surroundings and watch your children and pets for animals that aren’t on a leash. I go to Galveston 2 to 3 times a year for the last 23 years, so I’m very acquainted with this little paradise.
We absolutely loved it. We were a group of 10 all ages. The home was roomy, comfortable and clean. Everything you need. We also brought our dog. Beach was two blocks down. Everything was within walking distance. We will be returning.
Nice stay in Blue Dolphins
We really enjoyed our family stay in this beautiful and comfortable beach house, just three blocks from Seawall and very close to many entertainment places. Many things could be better, but we were satisfied with what we received. Very satisfied with the prompt response of the owners to our concerns. Congratulations and thank God for such a great vacation, sincerely Rene
Wonderful House, Incredibly Spacious, Great Location!
This has been our second year staying at this house for Memorial Day and we loved it as much as the first. Everything you need is available, it's a short bike ride to anywhere you would want to go and it easily fit our group comfortably. Looking forward to booking this for next year and having a great time all over again!
Thank you so much! You're a wonderful group to have!!
Please do come back and visit.
