About Cheryl Krueger

This property belonged to my parents who both grew up, met and married in Galveston. My dad always wanted to fix the house up and share it with others, but was never able to. My husband and I have totally renovated this lovely home in their honor and know that they would be very proud! We know that you will love this home as much as we do.

Cheryl Krueger purchased this house in 1955

Why Cheryl Krueger chose Gulf Coast

I was born on the Island we lived here until I was around 4 and then moved to Houston. My grandparents lived here and I still have family in the area. My husbands family lived here years ago and then moved to Houston.

What makes this house unique

The best thing about staying at our house is that it is so relaxing. The minute you walk in the door you feel your cares melt away. It is also so close to everything. In just minutes you are at the Beach, great restaurants, shopping, Moody Gardens or Schlitterbaun or the Pleasure Pier.

Expectations Exceeded

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a quick affordable getaway to Galveston, this is a great pick. The house is very nice inside and well decorated. Everything was clean and I felt overwhelmed and welcome as soon as I walked in the door.

Being able to get up Saturday morning and jog along the seawall was exactly what I wanted to do, and this place is perfectly located to do so. It is about 1.5 miles to the pleasure pier from the front door, so you can get a solid 3 miles in jogging to and from there in the morning.

The house is stocked with everything you need to make your stay as home-like as possible. We cooked breakfast on the stove and grilled for dinner on the outside grill.

I will definitely keep this place in mind the next time I need a Galveston getaway. No more hotels for me.

Comfortable & Cute! A definite winner!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with a family of 8 in this house very comfortably. Our party consisted of 5 adults and 3 children (ages 10, 5, & 2). The house has been totally remodeled but it still has all the charm that an old house has in the details - original interior doors, hardwoods, molding, etc.

This property is not located in Casa del Mar. It is in a residential neighborhood about three blocks off of Seawall. While it is within walking distance of the beach, we chose to drive because of convenience and because traffic on Seawall Blvd heavy and I wouldn't want to try to cross with children. The nearest beach access at the end of 41st & Seawall is great. There were stairs from the road down to the beach. Parking is FREE along this area (which is nice) and we had no trouble finding a parking spot near the stairs.

The bedding was very nice and comfortable. The mattress I slept on had a mattress topper on it and I can't remember when I slept better. The furniture was very well chosen and felt inviting. There were plenty of spare blankets and pillows and the bath towels were plush and soft.

The kitchen was fully stocked with cookware, etc. and even included creamer, etc. for usage. It had both glass and plastic dishes which is nice when dealing with children.

The washer and dryer were high capacity and came furnished with detergent and dryer sheets. A very nice touch!

We really enjoyed the outdoor shower. It was very handy for removing sand when returning from the beach. The water was a comfortable temperature straight from the faucet. The owners even furnished beach towels and some beach toys for enjoyment.

The only things I want to mention for possible renters is that the third bedroom with the bunk beds is attached to the second bedroom. There is a door separating them but no direct access to the kid-friendly area. This was perfect for us but wanted to mention just in case. Secondly, there are decorations on tables, dressers, buffets and sidetables. We had to kid-proof them because of the toddler but my 2 yr old is especially hands-on.

The owners (Greg & Cheryl) were very easily to contact and promptly answered any questions I had while reserving the property. They gave us a great walk-through and had some helpful tips on local attractions. This house is special to them and it really shows! Can't wait to come back and stay in the future!
