About Dennis Banks

Lifetime Gulf Coast resident. Home owner and sailing off Bermuda Beach since 1988. After loosing our previous home to Ike we did not hesitate buying a second home in Bermuda Beach.

Dennis Banks purchased this house in 2009

Why Dennis Banks chose Bermuda Beach

There is no substitute for owning a front row house. There are open lots to the East and West offering an unobstructed panoramic view of the Gulf.

What makes this house unique

Having your morning coffee or tea on the front deck, watching the sunrise, seabirds & dolphin swim past is the greatest possible way to wake up.

Wonderful family get-together

  • 5 of 5

Bermuda Beach is close to all the attractions on Galveston Island and Cat Alley is literally foot steps from the beach and Gulf. The wrap-around balcony has an unobstructed panorama of the wide beach, so we could watch our preteen grand daughters build their sand castles and replenish refreshments and come and go all day.

Everything in the house worked fine. The beds were very comfortable ( we always sleep better at the beach) and the owner was friendly and easy to work with.

The house is furnished with sailing trophies and has an authentic beach house vibe.

I don't think this could be beat for location and fun.

Owner's Response: Donald - I am so glad you guys had a great time at Cat Alley! Being able to relax on your choice of a covered deck sea side or the "sunset deck", & still keep an eye on the younger kiddos is just one of the reasons we love our little slice on heaven. Hope you stay with us again soon! Dennis

Wonderful property with everything our family needed!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved Cat Alley and hope to bring our kids back here again. We traveled almost 12 hours to get to Galveston and this house was a welcome oasis. Ithe had everything we needed to cook, plenty of towels including beach towels, deck chairs and everything else we could think of. Private beach so we never had to fight a crowd. Away from the massive crowds on the east end but close to all the resturants. Love it! Dennis is an amazing host too:) Thank you Dennis for everything.

Amazing location!!!

  • 5 of 5

This Beach house was great. The location right on the beach was just what we were looking for. We have two nephews 7 yrs of age and we didn't want to be worried about them going down to the beach. I could have just sat out on the covered porch all day long and just watch the waves. The house is very clean and has the beach feel. The kitchen had everything we needed and more!! We had 7 people and everyone had a place to sleep. I also really liked the the security patrol car always making a presence since there is a section of public beach down from the house which didn't affect our stay at all. The neighbors are really friendly also!! We will definitely be returning customers!!!!

It's awesome to be so close to all the seawall action but have your own section of beach. Dennis the owner was very quick to respond to all my questions. Thank you Dennis!!

Perfect location and a great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 adults and 4 kids stay for my Dad's 70th birthday. The kitchen, dining room, and bar area were open and perfect for our family. The view from the deck is amazing and a great place to enjoy a morning coffee. Our kids were on the beach all day and we could watch them play from the deck. Overall great place to stay.
