About Brenda Hesch

I retired in 2010 from AT&T with 30 years. Now I just enjoy life. I love to travel and love the beach.

Brenda Hesch purchased this house in 1992

Why Brenda Hesch chose Galveston

As a child we came to the beach every weekend. The beach has always been in myself. We seen this house on Good Friday of 1992 and that was our beginning of our beach house.

What makes this house unique

We have always loved the view from the deck. If you sit in the chair in the house and leave the door open you can see the water. The house has arches which gives character to the house.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I rented the property for the Lone Star Rally. The home is in a great location, with the view of the ocean from the front porch. Parking is limited, but Brenda let my husband park his motorcycle in the garage, so it worked out perfectly with my car in the driveway, after the motorcycle was parked for the night. The home is warm & inviting, and we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. I loved the character and the layout of the home, but we opted not to share with another couple, as there is only one bathroom in the home. My husband & I slept in the back bedroom, and the king size bed was amazing comfortable. There is also a cute little porch off of the back bedroom that looks onto the side street. Brenda was most accommodating and very easy to work with. My husband & I will definitely put this rental on our favorites list!

Excellent stay March 2016

  • 5 of 5

Brenda is an excellent hostess. You can tell she is very thoughtful thinking of her guests' every need--lots of kitchen supplies, beach towels, water floatation inflatables, boogie board, extra pillows & blankets... My family enjoyed staying at her lovely comfortable home and can't wait to go back. Even though it was spring break, her neighborhood was quiet. Being across the street from a nice small beach was very convenient. Her home is pet friendly which was great for our Corgi who got to go on her first outing to the beach! Brenda's home does not have an outside shower, but there is a water hose outside in front by the garage to rinse off. If you want to relax, you can also sit on her nice big front porch and watch the waves. Free parking is another plus. The house has a small garage that could fit a small car but it was a tight squeeze for our van so the driveway parking was fine. It is a short walk to some places like Pleasure Pier or Denny's but to get groceries at the main stores (Walmart, Krogers, Randalls), you need to drive about 7 minutes. Overall, we had a great stay and highly recommend Sand and Serenity.

Thank you Brenda for your wonderful hospitality:-)

We love this house. Our second stay was even better than the first. Brenda has already improved on this property, adding a king size bed in one of the rooms as well as little touches in the kitchen.

It's cozy, clean, fully stocked kitchen.

We love all the towels, beach toys and chairs, cooler, grill, but my favorite is the washer and dryer. Love being able to throw everything in the wash at the end of the day. The view is nice, close to the beach and restaurants, but nice and quiet since you don't have tons of people walking right by your window.

Our kids loved this house too. It just feels like a home. Not a hotel room.

The place was fabulous! Extremely well appointed with all the comforts of home. Only negative was that there could have been a few more clothes hangars.

Great place with great views

  • 5 of 5

I almost don't want post my review and give away this gem. It was a lot bigger than I imagined it would be. There was only two of us with two pugs but plenty of room for 4. The best part is it is one block off the beach but you have great views of the beach. Brenda was very accommodating and even left us some Mardi Gras goodies. My favorite part was the chairs on the porch. It was fabulous just sitting there watching the waves crash in and listening to the ocean. We will definitely be back.

A wonderful house near the seawall

  • 5 of 5

We come to Galveston every year for Mardi Gras and this was the nicest place we have stayed in. The view of the Gulf from the porch is fantastic. The house itself is filled with many cool decorations and the design is fantastic. Lots of room for 2 couples. We thoroughly enjoyed its proximity to the Seawall and the Strand District plus the many restaurants and nightlife nearby. We look forward to coming back for many years to come. Thank you Brenda for a fantastic stay.
