Wonderful stay at a beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! It was in a great location, close to everything, and enough parking. Nancy has really thought of everything to make sure her guests were comfortable. We loved the little touches like coffee, spices, tea, paper goods, and plenty of towels! The house is beautifully decorated and felt huge for us 4 adults and 2 young children. We enjoyed the backyard and were grateful for the washer and dryer. We love visiting the Texas coast and this house made it even better. We will definitely be staying here again!

Charming Home!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for the stay at your fully-remodeled city home. It was a pleasure to explore both the beach and the town on foot from the silk stocking district.

Great Location and House!

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted by the owner on arrival to a very clean, well stocked, and cozy house. The location was great, only a few minute walk from the sea wall. Highly recommend!

Cute cottage.......Great location!

  • 5 of 5

The Cottage by the Sea was the perfect spot for a girls’ weekend with my sister and her two teenaged daughters. The cottage is darling, decorated beautifully with updated kitchen and bathroom. The location is perfect; within walking distance or a short drive to everything we wanted to do. We particularly enjoyed the Segway tour and a visit to Pleasure Pier. The only downside to the cottage is that there is only one bathroom.

Very tasteful, immaculate!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house! We were ready to move in! All the up-to-date stuff with a bit of the old Victorian charm. Beds were very comfortable (sometimes not the case on vacation homes), coffee supplies and water right there waiting for us and a great location because you aren’t too far from anything. We are definitely going back the absolute first chance we get. Loved the side yard patio area and the neighbors are nice!
