About Angie Wilcox

We are a family of 6 with 4 daughters who live in the Houston area. We enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of Galveston and decided we would like a weekend getaway that was close to home, so we purchased this home in 2012 and have taken a year to remodel it, which has been loads of fun! We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

The house is 3 blocks from the sea wall and about a mile from the Pleasure Pier. It's also about half a mile from The Strand, so it's close to many things on the island.

A wonderful anniversary week! Thanks for the perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a cozier, nicer place for our anniversary week! Your house is filled with charm! Love the location, and the neighborhood is very peaceful and quiet which was nice. Enjoyed the deck. It was a pleasure to meet Ed, too! We learned much history about the island during our stay. It was also convenient to spend a few nights in because your wonderful home was so accommodating. We enjoyed a couple of nice movie nights. You truly thought of everything! I would love to know where you found those lovely small quilts with the sand dollars and seashells! Love those! Thank you again for making our trip a memorable one in a very nice way. Also, the book of information you left for your guests was extremely helpful to us! Look forward to a repeat visit and would highly recommend your lovely home! We truly miss it so much already!

Above and Beyond...and then some!

  • 5 of 5

This property was above and beyond what I expected (please note that my initial expectations were high)! The photos and description of this property don't begin to describe how wonderful it really is!! I was so pleasantly surprised by Angie's attention to detail, decor, accommodations, and cleanliness! (she even supplies renters with a binder full of useful information on the city of Galveston which included local reviews of restaurants, take-out menus, and site-seeing! ....not to mention, notes posted on the doors reminding you not to forget your cell phone/keys/camera/chargers!--WOW)!!! I look forward to staying at this property each and every time I travel to Galveston! Angie and this rental played a huge part in making my trip to Galveston extraordinary!!!

Lone Star Rally

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Galveston was awsome. The house was so inviting and warming. It rained on us Saturday so we lounged around the house a little. It is very close to everything and we are planning on coming back.

Thank you for allowing us to stay there.

Great location. Great house. Great vacation.

  • 5 of 5

House is in a great location. Quick walk to the Seawall and Poretto/Stewart Beach and Broadway area. The outdoor shower was a wonderful help for keeping sand out of the house. House was well-stocked. Lots of extra towels, blankets, toilette paper, trash bags, etc--even coffee. Kitchen was as well stocked as mine at home, which made it easy to make meals there. Also nice to have a full size washer and dryer and appreciated even having detergent provided. There was plenty of room for my husband and myself to stay in the downstairs bed and bath and put our 2 teens and their 3 friends in the 2 bedrooms and bath upstairs. We would definitely rent this house again on a return trip. Thanks for sharing it with us!

Wonderful Memories, House and Hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 6, 2 families of 3. This place was even better than the site conveyed. The layout of the house was absolutely perfect for hanging out all together, finding a quiet place to read or to enjoy a movie at the end of the day. Angie has thought of everything in the house too. Tons of towels, easy to use kitchen and all the comforts of home as well as quaint reminders and a guide to the island we found very useful. The location of the house was fantastic for a quick walk to Poretto beach with access to concession stands, umbrella, chair & jet-ski rentals. For the most fun, rent a 4+ passenger bike from Jungle Surf Rental around the corner and cruise the seawall with a sno cone before you head to a fun filled day at Pleasure Pier. We will definitely be back!

July-August Guest

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great! Location, Space, Cleanliness! The games & movies were fun. Beds were comfortable. The outdoor deck & shower were awesome. The ONLY negative was they didn't say no paper goods toilet paper, no trash bags, paper towels.

Excellent place to stay, I'd stay again!
