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!

My sister and I with 3 young kids thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Fun weekend!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. There are parks right across the street for kids of all ages -- skateboard for teens & older -- swings, etc for younger kids and a water pad.

Our young kids enjoyed chalk drawing on the living room "chalk" walls.

It's all about the location!

  • 4 of 5

If you like a morning (or afternoon or evening) stroll on the Seawall, this is the place to rent! Families with teens and younger kids will enjoy the skate park and playground across the street. Families with toddlers will probably want something a little more "baby-proofed" (mainly the staircase is open and steep). The house is clean and adequately furnished, but showing some wear. This is still a fun, colorful, well-located place to rent in town!

Excellent Location!!!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better location for our weekend with friends! 3 couples slept perfectly. (Plus a couple of teenagers) The house was very clean and well equipped with the items you'll need for every day. We will definitely be staying here again and recommending it to our friends!

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.
