About Hans Schellstede

Our family enjoys traveling especially to locations where we can enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking and canoeing. We chose this location because of tranquil surroundings. Staying here is like being in your own private retreat.

Hans Schellstede purchased this house in 2011

Why Hans Schellstede chose Santa Fe

We selected this property because of the tranquil surroundings. The location is ideal because this home is away from the hustle and bustle of the city but it is within close proximity to all the convinces offered in a city. This property is minutes away from Field of Dreams baseball park and is a short drive away fro Galveston, Kemah and NASA.

This is a great rental! It has all the amenities of home. It sits on a large, quiet, well kept lot. I put my family up here while they were in town for my son's graduation. Everyone loved it! We had so much fun! Hans and Kelly are two of the nicest people you will ever meet. I would definitely consider renting again and would recommend this rental.

My son had a baseball tournament at Big Leage Dreams, which was just minutes away from this beautiful home. Not only was the location very convenient, but the layout and surrounding landscape made us feel as if we were on a vacation. After the games we were able to come home and grill dinner followed by a nice campfire in the oversized firepit. Last but not least, the owners of this home are extra accomodating and eager to help in any way possible to make your stay enjoyable. We probably won't wait till the next tournament at Big Leage Dreams before booking our next stay!!!

Wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5
This was the first time we have ever stayed in a VRBO and our experience was more than what we expected. The house is beautiful, comfortable and spacious. Plenty of room for us, our two daughters and their little families; total of six adults and three children with room to spare. Kelly and Hans are so nice; they provided sodas, bottles of water and plenty of coffee and tea krups. The Keurig was a nice touch. We had planned to visit NASA so Kelly went out of her way to locate discount coupons for us. Thanks a bunch Kelly!!! In addition to this the pantry was well stocked with lots of condiments and other essentials plus a few snacks. Hans provided plenty of firewood so we had a great time around a cozy fire on a chilly night. Very generous of them! Oh I also want to add that the master bed was very comfortable!

Words can't express how wonderful this house is! I arrived at the house and was greeted by the owners son (very well mannered and helpful); he gave me a insightful tour of the home and the area. The rest of the party arrived and was amazed by the décor, size and amenities in the house. We had enough room for our meetings and dining time. The owners where friendly and helpful. I'll rent this house again and will refer it to other large groups.
