Great place!

  • 5 of 5
The house is in a great location, and very private. Off street parking is very nice. The house was very clean and neat, and in very good repair. I rented the house for my daughter and her husband for a weekend getaway, and they couldn't have been happier. They plan to rent the same house whenever they get a chance to return to Galveston. Thanks Reza!

Came to Galveston for a last get away for the summer and this was the perfect place to get away. It was super clean and there was plenty of space for our belongings. We were close to everything and yet it was very quiet and peaceful. Highly recommend this small, quiet getaway that feels like home.

Comfortable stay at Shell Seekers

  • 5 of 5
Reza accurately describes her place in the description and pictures provided. It is small, but all you really need to come back to at night. The kitchen was well equipped, bed was very comfortable, and the beach towels, chairs, and umbrella were greatly appreciated. We walked to the beach every day and only drove if we needed to go far. Great place!

We truly enjoyed our stay at Shell Seekers. We appreciated the private, secure parking. The walk to the Seawall was short and we enjoyed walking and sitting along the Seawall people watching. Even though the cottage is small the way it's designed provides for an open, spacious feeling. We appreciated the coffee, as we had forgotten to bring any, and the snack crackers Reza made for us. I would highly recommend the cottage if you prefer not staying in a hotel. I loved the homey feel of the place. Thank you Reza, we truly enjoyed our stay. Gary & Linda - Ft. Worth, TX

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.
