Great location and home

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our weekend stay. There was plenty of sleeping space for 3 adults and 2 kids (and a large dog). The kids loved the fresh baked cookies the hosts left us when we arrived. You are able to walk to Pleasure Pier and the beach. The yard was fenced and perfect for letting the dog out. The front porch is covered with a couple of chairs and the neighborhood had sidewalks that allowed for a nice walk. The hosts were quick to respond to all my phone calls and messages (and even come over to check on us when we had a question). We had a wonderful time and would definitely stay here again!

Ideal setting to enjoy Galveston!

  • 5 of 5

This home is wonderfully convenient for enjoying the sights of the town. There is plenty of space, comfortable beds, and everything needed in the kitchen. The fenced yard was great for the dog, and the location is close to the beach, as well as shopping downtown. It was very handy to have a washer and dryer on the premises. Property owners were very cordial and helpful, always responding to questions in a very timely manner. We love coming to Galveston and will certainly check availability of this property for all future trips. This one's a winner!!

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.
