Do t count on TV reception, wifi or an updated living experience. If bare minimum is what you will be comfortable with then boom it.

This is our third year in a row to stay here and every year we are pleased to see the improvements that the owner makes. It is a perfect place for our family to vacation and we hope to stay many more times.

Great place to unplug and unwind. Two blocks from beach. We are a family of five and we enjoyed having a separate bed for each person. Host was responsive and went above and beyond. Loved hanging out on the front porch with a coffee and enjoying the flowers and butterflies. Everyone on Galveston Island was very nice. Our kids enjoyed the Pleasure Pier and the Haunted House/Pirate Museum (on the Strand).

Diana was very responsive and her little cottage is in a great location close to the beach. So close we could walk. It is an older home but most homes here in Galveston are older. So much amazing history!! This house has everything we needed and really loved the fact that we could cook which helps out a lot of you're there with the whole family. Thank you Diana!!

We had a wonderful weekend at the house; very much a cozy "beach cottage" feel. The house is just as described - everything is clean, well maintained, and working. Nice, quiet part of Galveston, but close enough to all the fun. We brought our bicycles and rode them all the time. No problems with parking cars in front of house.

We texted as we drove in to town and a manager was waiting for us when we arrived. This location is an easy walk to the beach and restaurants. The beach had umbrellas and chairs set up for rentals, so no need to worry about carting a load. The back yard has vegetation making the patio a little more private. We felt the patio was like another room to be enjoyed.
