Guestbook comments from the owner

our 6th trip to Island beach retreat & we find it harder to leave every time! just booked a week stay in the fall. The cottage is comfortable, clean, & kitchen has everything. Loved while cooking that I was able to enjoy the awesome views of the gulf on one side & ICW barges passing through on the other! A definate plus to those of us with little ones or family that has trouble walking is walking across yard & beach is right there (no obstacles)

Awesome getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely love this place! We had so much fun and loved the quiet beaches! The house was perfect and had everything we needed for our stay. The owner is kind and very responsive. We'll be back next year!

Great location, house could use some updating

  • 4 of 5

Working with Carleen was awesome. Having such a quiet stretch of beach to ourselves was just want we wanted; watching pelicans and dolphins was an added bonus! But the house could use some fixing (especially the ceiling), so don't stay here if you're looking for luxury. If the house had a few updates, this stay would easily be a 5-star rating.

Oh-bring bug spray! Being along the water means plenty of breeding ground for mosquitos.

A nice place

  • 4 of 5

Overall, our stay was nice. The house could use some updates as the paint is peeling in some rooms and the bathroom tile flooring is coming up. However, you are steps from the beach and the sound of the waves is soothing.

Owner's Response: thank you for letting me know about the tiles/paint .Our property managers are local & their numbers are on the rental agreements in case any issues come up. I certainly hope this did not put a damper on your vacation! It is a wonderful quiet location and nothing like a cup of coffee/tea on the deck watching the sunrise with no one else around other than the dolphins & birds! Beach combing is the best we even found sea glass when we were there a few months ago. Recent guests have been having great luck fishing! Keep the cottage in mind for future trips!

Our Beach Home Away From Home.

We always enjoy our stay at this beach home. We have stayed in this home four times and love the easy access to the beach. Carleen is always great to work with. Thank you for sharing your beach home with our family.

Owner's Response: Another successful beach trip! thank you for taking the time to review our property! It really is a great location without any bridges/sand dunes to cross to get to the beach. Comfy and casual cottage! When you are snowbound bring out your pictures! Take care & hope you can stay again next summer!

Great getaway!

  • 4 of 5

I loved the fact that this beach was not full like Galveston. It was extremely nice to be a holiday weekend and no one around! The house being right on the beach was amazing! It's hard to find that. Plus the owner allowed my dog's! The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is the window units aren't strong enough for this big house. At night it would be cool enough not to sweat but never cold. Other than that, I loved the beach house!!!

Awesome Place!

  • 5 of 5

We did a guys weekend fishing trip to this house, and it was awesome! The owner calls it a casual fishing cabin, and that's a great description for it. The place was nice and clean with all of the amenities we needed, and it was even closer than we thought to the water (I would guess no more than 75 yds).

The owner was very responsive and great to work with as well. Thanks for letting us enjoy your home for the weekend!

I'm glad you enjoyed and I know you are looking forward to booking another stay! Thanks for taking the time out to write a review!
