About Richard Daughtry

We moved to Galveston from the DFW area in 2005. Started buying and remodeling homes for vacation rentals in 2007. We fell in love with Galveston and all the people on the Island. We have very much enjoyed sharing our homes with guests coming for a visit to Galveston.

Richard Daughtry purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Richard Daughtry chose Galveston

The home is in a perfect location. Central to everything on the Island. It is a short walk to the beaches, and about 1/2 mile to the new Pleasure Pier.

Our family had a great time at the house. It was just a few minutes walking to the beach and pier. The house was perfect for our BIG family, more room than I expected. We will definitely be back.

Family Vacation in Beach Cottage

  • 4 of 5
We really enjoyed the stay at the house. It was clean and comfortable. The fenced in yards were perfect for my pugs. The back yard and desks are great also. The little kids loved the spiral stair. My husband & I being the grandparents stayed on the first level. The little's loved coming to "visit". We loved the fact of how close the house is to everything we wanted to do. We did not spend a large amount of time at the house except for sleeping and 1 dinner in. We have been to Galveston and many trips but his was by far the best stay as far as location and price. And the neighbors to the right are so friendly and sociable.

I only have a few negatives. One being the back porches and grill should be cleaned after every visit so the next patrons do not have to do before using, only when leaving. And we did have a few encounters with roaches in the upstairs areas. They are to be expected due to humidity and location near beach. Only saying in case it is time to spray or trade out with new bait traps.

We will for sure rent again and look forward to getting back to Galveston. Love the area.

Thanks again Richard for sharing your home with us.

UH-mazing!!!

  • 5 of 5
Dolphin's Run far exceeded our expectations!! The house is SO roomy, has the perfect layout, was super clean, close to our favorite restaurants, and just minutes from the beach. We have stayed in Galveston every summer for many, many years and this house gave us the best bang for our buck in a very long time. Neighbors to the left were super friendly and helpful. Can't thank you enough Richard for trusting us with your home.

Perfect Beach Cottage Rental

  • 5 of 5
This cottage was perfect for our sister beach trip to Galveston. This cottage is conveniently located near the main attractions and local restaurants. Everything we needed was available in the house. Renting this cottage was better for us then a staying at a hotel since we wanted to spend quality time together. We had a great time.
