What a great, out of the way spot

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed the peace and quiet of the neighborhood! And felt very safe there too.

The little apartment was clean, warm and cozy. Reza had it well stocked with everything. And what a nice woman she is.

I come down to Galveston a couple times a year and would stay there again in a heartbeat.

perfect little vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights and we enjoyed our time. The owner was more than helpful and welcoming. Well thought out with everything you can need. The garden is a perfect spot to relax. Also the property is very clean.

We will hope to stay there again on a future trip.

Wonderful little cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This was my 3rd 1-week stay in just one year to this delightful little cottage! Reza has provided such a cozy cottage home-away-from-home here that I just love it and don't want to leave! It is perfect for one or two guests. If you prefer to stay in and prepare your own meals, the fully stocked kitchen has all that one needs. There are 2 private outdoor spaces for the cottage which are a delight, plus a private parking space. The cottage is just a couple of short blocks to the beach and all your beach gear from towels and beach mats to umbrellas & coolers have been thoughtfully provided. The location cannot be beat with the beach and many restaurants and attractions within a short, beautiful walk!

Great getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a 4 day weekend at this bungalow. The kitchen was small but well stocked. All the photos online are accurate, it's a perfect size for 2 adults, for a short stay. I only say short stay because the living room wicker furniture wasn't very comfortable, so you could feel couped up if weather isn't nice for outdoor seating.
