Tranquil Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Everything we expected and more. It was a real pleasure exploring Galveston and getting familiar with Jamaica Beach. A very pleasant community tucked away from the hustle and bustle and perfectly placed on a canal. Just a quick, easy drive from downtown. The community was very quiet and kept very nicely. I'd recommend this rental to anyone traveling with a small family that likes some peace and tranquillity. We enjoyed most of our time on the rocking chairs right on the water! Also loved the numerous windows upstairs that allowed plenty of natural light into the living space. As the name suggests there is something for everyone. Water sports local, fishing charters, shopping at Tanger a relatively short drive away, great places to eat, the list goes on. One recommendation to future guests: try to stop for groceries before heading to the house. The closest full-offerings grocer is about 20 minutes away.

We had a pretty good stay.

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was pleasant. The cottage was just the right size for the two of us. Unfortunately, there were ants that set a negative tone for us. We woke to ants all over the donuts we had hoped to eat for breakfast. We contacted Judy and she was there lightning fast. She offered to pay for our breakfast while she stayed to clean up the ant mess. She also had an exterminator come. The cottage was so peaceful. We enjoyed the extra large deck; cooking on the grill; enjoying dinner in the sunshine. We really like peace and quiet when we vacation. This cottage gave us that. Be sure to read what to bring with you and you'll have a good time too.

Owner's Response: Again, I am sorry about the ants. The island experiences a very mild winter which in turn allowed the ants to thrive and come out early this year. The house in now on a frequent spraying schedule so hopefully we will not be caught of guard again. Thanks for staying! Judy

The property was awesome outside and inside!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this property and will definitely stay again in the future. It was furnished very nice and had everything we needed. My husband has had back surgery and was very happy with the comfortable bed. Wonderful large deck above with gas grill and furniture and very nice patio and furniture on ground level. We enjoyed the porch swing in the evenings. It was very nice staying on the canal. It was so peaceful and enjoyed beautiful sunsets. The location was great! Judy was very nice. It was a perfect vacation!!

The owner, Miss Judy, was very nice and helpful. The house was absolutely amazing! It was extremely clean, inside and out. The kitchen has EVERYTHING you need. Just bring your food and drinks. There were several games and a puzzle in the closet, so this came in very handy when the weather did not cooperate. Our children are only 5 and 8, and they enjoyed every minute of it. There were crab traps available for use, and we managed to catch a few. Next time we are in Galveston, we will definitely book this home again!
