About Aaron Ellis

We are a family from Illinois who loves to get away to our wonderful beach cottage.

Aaron Ellis purchased this house in 2002

Why Aaron Ellis chose Galveston

The location is fantastic, you will not find a better location. Our home has been renovated. It is within walking distance to so many great restaurants and activities.

What makes this house unique

We have brand new appliances. You will not find a nicer place on the seawall.

Baby's first beach trip

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful cottage by the beach perfect for family getaway. 4 adults & 1 baby, 4 fur babies, lots of room and very comfortable accommodations. Just a short (2 blocks) walk to beach, restaurant & bike rental. All the comforts of home, nice fenced yard for sitting out back, beds were very comfortable (if you like fluffy pillows, bring your own lol)

Not many accommodations by the beach accept pets, please if you bring your fir baby clean up after them so we may continue to enjoy this amenity.

Great Location, Property Needs Work

  • 3 of 5


⁃ House has a good layout

⁃ Comfortable outside living spaces in front and back of house (some lawn furniture is broken)

⁃ Location of house is perfect: close to the sea wall, a short drive to the strand, easy to find

⁃ Great ventilation in house, excellent air flow

⁃ Beautiful hardwood floors

⁃ Lots of natural light

⁃ Tastefully decorated


⁃ Door to master bedroom was the wrong size and was falling apart because it was installed incorrectly.

⁃ Sheets in two of the bedrooms are worn out. The elastic is no longer holding the sheet on the bed and the sheets come off the corners while sleeping.

⁃ Wifi: There is none. The directions for the unit instruct you steal wifi from the hotel behind it. The wifi signal does not reach that far & the hotel probably wouldn't approve.

⁃ Plumbing: One of the toilets overflowed. Instead of having someone come check it out we were told to just plunge it.

⁃ The house is listed as a two bathroom unit. There is no door on the master bathroom making it unsuitable for use by anyone except whoever is in the master.

⁃ Microwave: The microwave above the stove is broken. A second microwave is on the counter.

⁃ Broken dishwasher: It took 4 days for the property managers to get a repair tech out to look at it (we stayed for 7 days). It was still not operational upon check out.

⁃ Broken AC in red bedroom. It makes noise but does not blow air.

⁃ Bathmats are old and yucky.

Great value and location

  • 4 of 5

We went to Galveston for a long weekend and enjoyed our stay in this home. The kitchen is very large for a rental property- which comes in handy when you have several couples sharing the same space. The value for the money was excellent and the location of the property is convenient to seawall, restaurants and attractions. We will definitely stay here again!
