About Elizabeth Wilson

I am a widow and the mother of 5 children. A former retail manager, corporate auditor, ostrich farmer, marine biologist and cafe owner... I now own and manage the Lil House by the Sea. I am looking forward to this new venture and all the excitement and new friends it brings our way.

Elizabeth Wilson purchased this house in 2008

Why Elizabeth Wilson chose Galveston

My Husband and I had talked about buying this house before he died and turning it into a cafe... since Robert's passing I couldn't travel anymore with my job at NOAA so it seemed the next logical move to make that dream a reality. After totally redoing the house to make it a parkside cafe we opened in January 2010. The family helped me run it and over the 2 1/2 yrs we were open we met many dear friends and neighbors. It however proved to be to much and we closed the cafe and low and behold ...the LIL HOUSE BY THE SEA was born. Heres to new adventures!

What makes this house unique

There are many unique benefits to our Lil House, location location location! 1 block to the beach and Pleasure Pier! Across the street from Galveston's Menard Park and Rec Center, which includes a first class skate park, tennis courts, a playground and a nicely equipped recreation center. All great places to mingle with locals and tourists alike!

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Elizabeth for having such a great place! The location, beach and pleasure pier all walking distance. the 7 year old twin grandsons thought we were the coolest having a skateboard park across the street! They were skateboarding at 7am! the chalk board walls were fantastic! wifi was fast, games were a plus, water pressure was to die for! Back patio area for morning coffee or glass of wine was great! Outdoor shower! all the needs were met! We will be back! Our neighbors who rented were jealous!

Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5
The house was just what we wanted for our weekend getaway with three kids (6, 8, & 11). We had an easy walk to the Pleasure Pier and restaurants for our first night. We hit the skate park right across the street first thing Saturday morning. And everything else we did on the island was an easy drive. The house was clean and well-stocked for all our needs. The kids loved the decor. We really weren't in the house much, but it is a great home base for enjoying Galveston. Check-in and check-out was easy, and we had no problems of any kind. We would come back again.

Funky! Fun! Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5
Ok - this is the MOST fun rental I have EVER stayed in. The location is excellent....directly across from the community tennis courts and skate park, less than a full block from Seawall and beach, 1 block from surfboard rentals @ Ohana, a block from Pleasure Pier and if you cut across the park you can be ordering your burger from The Spot in under 5 minutes. The photos are accurate but still do not capture the festive nature of this home. It is impossible to walk in and not have a change of attitude here.....vacation time on steroids. The living area is comfortable with two couches and an "evil" chair....one of those that puts you to sleep when you sit in it....and two tables - a large dining table plus a smaller one for games. The downstairs bath is very large with excellent water pressure. The kitchen is great...this used to be a sandwich/smoothie type restaurant so the kitchen is open and well appointed. (side note: on Saturday morning a young man came to the door, skateboard in hand, and tried the door knob - locked- he looked confused, looked into the front window, I waved, he grinned and walked away....the 16 year old says "who's that? just a kid who wanted a smoothie I guess, said I - "wow, he's cute!"....so she went out to explain the change in status of the building to him....such an obliging girl....lol. ) If you need ice? Professional icemaker on the back enclosed porch! There is also a washer/dryer there that has been recently added. Makes beach packing SO MUCH EASIER! Upstairs are 3 bedrooms with another full bath.....more room than we needed, but the next time the teenager brings more friends - this IS the house we will be renting. The owner - Liz- is a pleasure to work with- she met us at the house when we arrived, gave us the tour and was a wealth of information as she lives and works on the Island. Parking close to the Pier can sometimes be difficult but there is driveway parking for one car plus Liz provides city parking passes that allow additional space on the street for vehicles. This rental is an excellent choice for size, location and fun-factor. It is hard not to smile just thinking of it.

We had a fantastic stay but I will say - twice people came to the door inquiring if this was a store or cafe. Once, we found a stranger in the house who thought it was a restaurant. All in all; however, great little house and would definitely recommend it; especially for families.
