Sharon definitely made me feel welcome. The house was clean, the kitchen well-stocked with all of the basics, and there was a wonderful welcome basket including a bottle of wine. The bathroom also had robes, making the experience spa-like. The most delightful surprise was the two 3-wheeled bikes, which me and my friend thoroughly enjoyed riding around town and up and down the seawall. What a blast! The house is just a few blocks from the beach: Far enough away to be quiet and out of the sea wind, but close enough to be at the beach in minutes. The neighborhood was an older, historical one, with plenty of interesting architecture to enjoy while walking or biking past. Also, the kitchen had a nice selection of organic teas.
My boyfriend and I enjoyed Sharon's place a lot! It was the perfect distance to the beach and the pier! Sharon pays great attention to detail which made the stay very relaxing
We had a great stay at this rental. Great amenities including a private garage, private yard, bikes, and everything was provided that we would need for our stay. It was close to the beach and Pleasure Pier which was great. I would recommend this rental and use it again if we go back to Galveston. The nearby beach was easy to access and clean. We forgot to bring an umbrella and chairs for the beach but we borrowed them from the rental, no problem. That saved us some $$ which was nice. We loved having a kitchen to have meals and prepare picnic lunches so we weren't constantly eating out. It was more affordable than a hotel and we had more room and privacy.
We had such a great relaxing time. Thank you so much for everything!
We loved it and I'm sure we will be back more than once. The homes in the neighborhood are being renovated if not already restored. We spent hours walking the hood and just looking in and around the neighborhood. The beach is within walking distance as are many restaurants and the fun pier. Bu Shay's is fun and lovely. Don't miss the opportunity for a lovely weekend getaway curtesy of Bu Shay's and it's owner Sharon.
Sharon's place is a great little hidden gem. Only a few blocks from the seawall and she has bikes you can use throughout your trip which was the best for us! We explored so much. Safe area, quiet and overall great location. Really happy with our stay. Would come back for any short time trip!
We enjoyed our stay at Bushay's Bungalow. It was great that the host took time to make it feel special with Christmas tree, and Champagne to toast in the new year. This quaint and romantic location was just what we needed after very busy year of work. A very short walk to seawall, with beaches and restaurants made it very convenient. Looking forward to booking again soon. Thanks for sharing your place!
About the Host, Sharon
I love to travel, and meeting new people has always been the highlight of my life. I volunteer for the U.S.O. (United Service Organizations) as much as possible. I began opening up my home for women who were battling cancer; giving these women and their families a place to get away for a weekend, at no cost. This was my way of saying, "I know what you're going through". I still enjoy giving to these women. Now, not only women, but men as well are welcome to enjoy this gift. I have opened up my home for people who want to stay in a place that feels like home. When I'm not hard at work, I also enjoy the fruits of my labor. That's, of course, if no one else is there. :) I just want others to enjoy the house as much as I do. My motto in Life is "Keep it Simple".
