About Beth Maxwell

This house is owned by Kathy,Beth and Max. Kathy and Max grew up in Houston and are childhood friends. Max and Beth have been married for 30 years and spent that time in Colorado with their 4 children and 4 grands while taking many visits to their favorite place, the beach. Now we are putting our experience into having a house that we wish had been available for us.

Beth Maxwell purchased this house in 2012

Why Beth Maxwell chose Galveston

We have vacationed with our children and Texas family forever. This is a favorite area for us, away from the noise of the seawall but close enough to visit when we want to enjoy the downtown Galveston area. We have wanted to own for years and the opportunity became available and we went for it. This house will embrace you and welcome you in when you arrive, it is that kind of place. Warm, inviting, relaxing, embracing, you will feel like you have come home.

What makes this house unique

When you are coming down the road this little blue house stands out from the others. It is a cute cottage with great views of the water without being right on the beach. The fenced yard has 11 palm trees and lots of grass for all kinds of games, and a break from the sand. It is cool and refreshing to lay around and read a book in the hammock, or play a little volley ball.

Happy Customers

Great location, plenty close to the beach, far enough from Galveston but close enough too. The kitchen was wonderful, spacious, and very well equipped. The porch and fenced-in yard were nice for our family.
The second bathroom was downstairs in the unfinished basement and we had to go outside to get there, but it was manageable.
The house and furnishings were clean.
I wish we had stayed longer (our short stay was due to one of my kids). We would all love to come back to this same rental house. My little grandkids in Ohio keep asking when we will go back.

Our stay was very comfortable and our family and friends enjoyed their stay. The home had all the amenities described and was very well equipped. Great for large groups and close to all that Galveston has to offer. We visited the Pleasure Pier and Schlighterbaun with our kids and everyone had fun and saved lost of money cooking there. We will definety come back. Beth answered all of our calls, texts and email and keeps us updated and answered our concerns, she is a great renter. See you soon

Very nice beach house

  • 5 of 5
Our party of 4 adults, 4 children and 2 dogs spread out comfortably in the house. Steps to the semi-secluded beach and 10 minutes into Galveston, made this our future go-to spot when we return to the island. Things we enjoyed the most were-

- location, location, location
- clean & tidy
- open floor plan
- huge deck (w/ little to no mesquitoes)

My family is spread from all around Texas and this was a great place for all of us to do things together as well as our own thing. It was very clean and the lay out of the house made it feel very spacious. We went all over the island but my favorite was the beach just down the street. Our visit was during the week and there were few people on the beach at that time. We would definitely like to go back. A great vacation home!
