Wonderful hideaway!

My husband and I enjoyed our weekend here very much. Everything we needed was in the cabin and our hostess was very accommodating and kind. We could not have asked for a better place to stay!

Shell Seekers Hideaway-Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5
This getaway was the best and the location was just perfect! The hospitality just like the cottage was impeccable. The security gate provided an extra sense of safety and security. Although we spent most of our time at The Strand and The Seawall during The Lonestar Rally, it was nice to come home and rest in a nice, warm, comfortable bed at night. This is truly a home away from home. We are definitely planning on coming back again soon but this time we plan to spend a nice, quiet, and relaxing getaway. Thank you so much Reza for providing an amazing experience!

Great little place!

  • 5 of 5
I've just returned from my second stay in 6 months at this delightful little cottage! I just love this place! The wonderful owner, Reza, has thoughtfully provided just about everything one can think of to feel "at home" while visiting including: a fully equipped kitchen, a comfy queen size bed, plenty of bath and beach towels, beach gear, 2 private patios, BBQ, and private gated parking. The beach is a short walk away, as is the beautiful Galvez Hotel, Murdoch's souvenir's, and the Pleasure Pier!

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!
