About Lisa Smith

Kevin and Elisa Smith have a family of 3 boys for whom the houses were built for and named after. The houses are Steven's Studio, Kevin's Cottage and Henry's HideAway. Revenues from rentals go towards each child's college education and one day, may become their home.

Lisa Smith purchased this house in 2005

Why Lisa Smith chose Galveston

The 3 Beach houses were built by Kevin and are currently managed by Lisa. They are located in a very nice and safe part of Galveston. They are on the beach side and have grand views of the beach and the bay. All 3 properties are exactly alike except for color, they have the same floorplan, furniture and similar decor. Each has its own charcoal grill, picnic table, outdoor shower and are only about 300 feet from the beach.

What makes this house unique

Each house sleeps 7, they are right next to each other so its a perfect location for Family Reunions because it enables families to spend time together yet, still have their own private space.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Lisa, Thank you so much for everything, we had a wonderful time, the beach house was adorable, we definitely will definitely be back next year.

Awesome!!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Stevens studio and I have to say it was really nice! We had plenty of room for the whole family,not to mention the beach was very close. I love the fact that the beach house was so far from the busy seawall. The beach itself never became overcrowded and at times felt like we had a private beach. I loved the master bedroom with its own private balcony to watch the sunrise from. We had such a wonderful time this weekend and I can not wait to go again next year

Steven's Studio

Steven's Studio
  • 5 of 5
Stayed in Steven's Studio with my 2 boys and Husband, great accommodations and plenty of room. Really enjoyed the Ocean view from the house. My boys enjoyed the beach and since it was so close they were able to spend a lot of time there. My Husband and I really got to kick back and relax, it was so peaceful and quiet. The only time we left was to go to the store that was conveniently close, another plus! Just want to say thank you, and we will be back again.

Summer Oasis!!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the green house for a week! It was an amazing stay and I can't wait to do it again!! It was right on a private beach so easy to walk or ride to beach area. It was a super convenient location. Close to seawall blvd, but yet enough distance to create a secluded oasis!! The house fit us just right and we LOVED the dual decks!! It had a great grill for our stay at home night of BBQ! It was totally worth the amazing rate we got. Lisa was quick to answer our questions and helpful. I would recommend this home to anyone that wants to be right on the beach at an amazing rate! Great family vacation!!!

Blue house / Stevens Studio

  • 1 of 5
Upon arrival the door would not open with door code tried 5 times finally it opened determination door knob lock broken. It was HOT inside house had a bad odor, floor not swept had DOG HAIR on floor and Futon we sat on our towels. Top floor toilet ran had to jiggle knob after flushing. Patio door filthy spilled drinks on glass couldn’t even see clear outside. Top floor ceiling fan wobbly could not put on high. TV had hand prints over screen. Stove light didn’t come on, refrigerator didn’t cool properly. Bottom patio door was NOT EASY to open very hard. WIFI no good kept getting kicked off no phone service. NO lights by vehicles had to use cell phone light to see. What was the purpose of charging a cleaning fee if it wasn’t going to be cleaned. Needless to say we cleaned before we sat down bought our own Clorox this was a horrible experience. We have pictures to prove all this.

Owner's Response: Tenant, please contact me regarding your stay. I can't do anything about an issue if I am not aware of it. Confused as to why someone having such a horrible experience or finding house in such horrible condition would not call ?????
I had 8 other tenants since this tenant stayed an no one else complained about the locks, lights, glass doors or cleanliness. I'm not sure if issue was that my cleaning lady had an off day or that house simply had not been cleaned?? Also, The address provided is not the address for Steven Studio so something's amiss. Wish I had been given the opportunity to correct the issue, it would have been nice to be made aware of what was going on. I could have sent my other cleaning crew, I could have refunded cleaning fees, I could have issued discounts. I would have done whatever it took to correct the problem and make my tenant happy. Too bad I was not given opportunity to correct issue...

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5
I recently took my two teenage sons on a getaway trip to Galveston. We stayed in Kevin's Cottage (the green house) for the week and absolutely loved it! It's about 15 miles down the island from the busy sea wall and strand area; close enough to go do the tourist activities, but far enough away from the crowds. The beach is right there by the house, less than 100 yards, and there's miles of it stretching each direction. Both patios have a great view of the beach as well. The house is very comfortable, it had everything we needed and felt like home. The linens, housewares, and furniture were all practically new and everything was clean and fresh. The house itself was a big part of our relaxing vacation and I would definitely stay in one again!

Summer Vacation

  • 4 of 5
My family planned a nice vacation in galveston and we wanted something specific to stay in while we were there and we found it! The house was exactly what we were looking for with the location and accomodations. Working with Lisa during our stay was superb. We would recommend them to all our friends that want to stay there. The location of the beach was perfect and the little store next door fulfilled all our needs. It was like a mini grocery store, so whatever we needed was available. The sleeping arrangements, view, lay out of the house fit our needs to a tee, but what was really nice was the amount of kitchen supplies that was available. We were able to cook and eat our regular meals due to the availability of utensils and pots and pans. And they were even able to accomodate out dogs while we were there.

Lisa, keep up the good work!!!
