About Linda Denson

We love the island life! We love the cool fresh breeze from the water. We love the feel of warm sand between our toes and the smell of salt air. We love the free airshow of pelicans flying just for us! We love fresh snapper with chunks of blue crab. We love Hawaiian shaved ice on the beach!! We love the Victorican architecture and the Art Walks. We love driving for miles and being able to see the ocean! And all of this on Galveston Island!

Linda Denson purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Linda Denson chose Galveston

This is a central location to the west end of the island. Very near the beach. About 1/4 mile. In the middle of wide open spaces. Country living. Down the street from where our friends keep their horses. Still only 20 minutes away from the Historic Strand Shopping and University of Texas Medical Branch. Lots of resturants easily accessible.

Quaint and quiet

  • 4 of 5

The house was great, and was away from all of the busyness of the island. It was only a block or two away from the beach which was a plus. The only bad part about the house was the a/c. It was pretty humid and the window units had to work pretty hard to keep the place somewhat cool during the day. Once the sun went down it was perfect inside the house. Overall we really enjoyed this house and would recommend to anyone.

Great inexpensive stay for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the location of this property as it was close enough to everything, but in a secluded spot. There was quite a bit of traffic noise at times, but that wasn't a surprise and there was enough white noise to drown out most of the sound. In the morning & some evenings with no traffic you can hear the ocean. Nice spot to sit upstairs and enjoy a cup of joe while watching the sun rise. It was well stocked with basic supplies. We know they are all over as a must to have at a beach spot, but we just loved the outdoor shower!! And the relaxing spot with a great southern Gulf breeze under the home. Kids had a relaxing and fun time too. Got some fishing in at the Bay and perfect days at the beach! One day (the last)had internet problems but we made do. We had a great experience overall and are going to miss beautiful salty air Galveston! Thank you for accommodating our family. :)

Very beautiful and quiet.

  • 4 of 5

We are so glad we got to stay in this area and in the fishhouse. My wife and I really liked the location of the property and how much space is inside the house. Everything inside the house was nicely done with older furniture. Although the living room furniture cushions were a bit worn by much use all and all all else was very cozy and warm. All I can say is that the time we were there we enjoyed this lovely home away from home. I really don't think that anyone's going to be disappointed with the stay or the house. P.S.The stairs up to the home are something that my be a problem for those who are limited at carrying or climbing up stairs. All the home's in this area are required to be built on elevated levels to avoid floodwaters. But this is a great place to spend time with the family.

We had a Great Time

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time but then again we always do when we get to spend a weekend in Galveston. Linda's house was clean. The beds had nice linens. It had been fixed up without being completely remodeled which gave it a cozy kind of feeling. Linda was accessible but not bothersome. Yes we would rent this property again.
