This was the perfect place for our little group!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Galveston for my son's wedding, and this house was right down the street from the church and reception venue. The owners decorated it so festively for Christmas, including a real tree that smelled wonderful! The weather was unusually chilly, and the fireplace made everything cozy. Thanks for a great stay!

The home is nice and cozy!! Connie's fresh baked cookies were great. Walking distance to Pleasure Pierce was about 10 minutes. Perfect for family with children.

Quaint home, easy access and good location.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this home. Comfortable beds, lovely linens and plenty of fluffy towels. The outdoor shower was great for rinsing off after a trip to the beach. The central air really worked wonderful and kept us very comfortable. All and all this a great value for the money.

Great place to stay and enjoy Galveston

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. This house has so much character. We loved staying here. The owner is friendly and helpful. She even had delicious chocolate chip cookies for us when we arrived. The house is clean, nice and well equipped. We especially enjoyed the fenced back yard with our grandchildren and our dog. We would love to stay here again and highly recommend this home away from home for a wonderful vacation time. Thank you so much Connie.

Absolutely Great

  • 5 of 5

My grandson (11 years old) and I took a guys trip to Galveston the first week of August to enjoy some beach time and see the sights. We rented this neat house from Connie and Jim for three nights and throughly enjoyed it. Everything we needed worked and if it didn't, Jim was right on it to make sure it did. We had a porch light go out as we were leaving for the evening and by the time we got back, after dark, the bulb had been replaced. The house was stocked with the basics, ice, condiments, washing soap, etc. and we had very little to purchase for our short stay. A great library of phamplets and information on where to eat and visit was available in the house which helped us make decisions on what to do each day we were there. it is four blocks from the beach, Pleasure Pier and great eating places. I would highly recommend this place for small families or a group of 4-6 people.

Awesome home

  • 5 of 5

This home was a great getaway. Connie and Jim were excellent and know how to treat their guest. Easy to get a hold of and very nice. The home is very close to the sea wall and down the street to the pleasure pier. Everything was just like the pictures and as described. The back yard was a plus and had a nice set up for barbecuing and hanging around the patio. There was an outside shower to wash off sand from the beach. My family had an awesome time and hope to return soon. I highly recommend this home. Its great for families and pets.
