DELIGHTFUL STAY, GREAT AMENITIES

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Shell Seekers Hideaway. The cottage is very nice, comfortable and we felt at home on our vacation. We appreciated the extras like beach towels, umbrella, chairs and cooler for our day at the beach. The location is great for walking to many destinations. Would highly recommend to any one looking for a place to stay while visiting Galveston.

PERFECT VACATION SPOT

Came in for a quick trip to Galveston. Reza had everything a person could need and the cottage was very clean and perfectly decorated. I walked everywhere and never needed my car. Great spot!

ADORABLE COTTAGE CLOSE TO BEACH!

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I enjoyed a lovely weekend at Reza's cottage. It was clean, fun, and comfortable. The beach is just a short walk away. The unit itself is TINY, especially the bathroom...so prepare yourself for that. For a single person or couple, this cottage is perfect. Reza's garden areas are tranquil and relaxing. Perfect for a short weekend at the beach.

SO..........NICE!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here. The description is right on the money. Reza is one of the kindest persons you will ever meet. Her place was spotless and comfortable with anything you need. Three blocks from the beach. Nice places to eat.
We had a great time and we are very grateful that she shares her home.
Thank you so much,
Dave & Lynn

WE'LL BE BACK!

We'll be back!

Charming, clean, & peaceful! Perfect for an individual or a quiet couple like ourselves. Walking distance to Seawall Boulevard. The owner has thought of everything a traveler might need. My only wish would be for a firmer mattress--really quite important--but our stay was short so not a big issue. Overall: a delight!
