About Mary Gonzalez and Henry Vasquez

We are both BOIs (Born on the Island), and raised on the island. We currently live near this property. For us, this will always be home. We enjoy traveling, gardening, and time with family and friends.

Mary Gonzalez and Henry Vasquez purchased this house in 1998

Why Mary Gonzalez and Henry Vasquez chose Gulf Coast

Close to beach which for us has a calming affect. It's nice to ride down the Seawall each morning on our way to work. It's an old Galveston home with lots of character, which we love!

Everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay! Perfect location within walking distance to the beach, restaurants and entertainment. Felt safe walking around. The house had everything that we needed. Loved the bikes and having the beach wagons to haul stuff to the boardwalk and beach. The house is cute and great for the 5 of us. Plenty of room. Mary and Henry were very accommodating. Wish we were staying longer than a weekend. Would love to come back and definitely recommend it.

This is a nicely restored 2 bedroom house that is very close to the beach. Very comfortable/ clean.

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time and the house is perfectly located close the beach and eating places. Mary and Henry are perfect hosts and keep the house stocked with books, DVDs, good cookware, bicycles, and all beach needs. They are also very responsive to any question or concern. This house and its location in the neighborhood made our vacation very special. Awesome rental!

Great cottage/great Location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoy staying in your beach cottage. As you might not have known I had been planning my wife's vow renewal for 6 months as total surprise! It went off perfectly on Saturday night on Tiki Island. What a great weekend! Thanks so much!

Great beach experience in Galveston

  • 5 of 5

The house is clean and beautiful, and it is very close to beach, about 5 minutes walk. Mary and Henry are very friendly and nice couple. Besides, they have almost all beach stuff, like beach towels, big umbrellas, beach chairs, small portable cooler, beach toys, beach cart. We really enjoyed to have all ready for family. I should say that their rental house is good for family vacation.

Very clean and tidy! Well equipped for all your needs!

  • 5 of 5

Very quiet, friendly neighbors. Quick 5 minute walk to the beach. Loved the outside shower, super convenient to wash off the sand when you come back from the beach. We brought out 2 Chihuahuas and they were crated when we didn't have them with is but it was very dog friendly. Hostess made us feel very pampered! We even had drinks, a personalized note and a pound cake waiting for us when we arrived! There was a downside tho, our vacation was over and we had to leave. Other than that would highly recommend this place.
