About Tom Lochry

My wife and I have 2 daughters, 5 grandchildren and a miniture schnauzer. We moved to Dallas from the midwest in the '70's. We soon needed a place to get out of the city. I wanted a place in the mountains and she wanted a place at the beach. She won. This has been our family's vacation home since we built in 2005. Over the past 10 years we have enjoyed introducing our grandchildren and their friends to the beach and the rich history of Galveston Island. The above photo was taken on the tall ship Elissa that is docked in Galveston. We have survived a recession, a hurricane and a couple of tornadoes. We rent to family and friends. We enjoy talking to every potential guest to make sure the property will be a good fit.

Tom Lochry purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Tom Lochry chose Galveston

Our family likes beach vacations, whether in the Caribbean, Mediterranean, Atlantic or Pacific. We especially like feel the sand between our toes in a natural, uncrowded environment. We do not like extended air or car travel anymore. The Texas Gulf Coast and the West End of Galveston Island was the closest place we could find that fit our time and money budgets. We wanted a "kid magnet" for parents, children, grandchildren, schnauzers and guests to make memories at the beach. We named the house Anne Mare after the middle names of our two daughters.

What makes this cottage unique

A beach side location with no sea wall means you have to build on stilts, but in return you get a real beach with lots of birding, fishing, cycling and kayaking opportunities. Fantastic sun rises and sun sets. Hear the surf from the balcony. Enjoy the stars and the lighted fountains at night! Hike, bike or cart around the 1000 acre resort. Cook out under the house. Go surf fishing or crabbing. A beach resort community with the feel of a neighborhood.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Great Time In Galveston"

We had the best time! Place smelled so clean & pristine! Shelling the beaches! We walked @ night & saw rise of harvest moon, planets & stars. Beach & area so safe @ night... So unlike our June trip on Seawall.... Please share our comments online w/ VRBO....

Wish it were my second home!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our extended stay at this beach cottage!!!

It is very charming and cozy. It has tasteful beach decor in every room. The master bed is super comfy!

Being the off season it was very private and peaceful. The beach is in walking distance at the end of the street.

We loved having our morning coffee on the back balcony that over looked the water and fountains.

We spent both Thanksgiving and Christmas here and it was wonderful. We were lucky enough to be here when it actually snowed in Galveston which is truly rare!

It was hard to pack up and leave after being here over 2 months.

The owners were wonderful and made sure we had everything we needed throughout our stay. It is also pet friendly so our two schnauzers enjoyed their stay here as well. Lots of memories were made here!!!

Owner's Response: Holidays at the beach are always special, even in the off season. The privacy and natural beauty of Pointe West and the West End of the Island are why we chose to build there in 2006.

Great resort community close to beach and great swimming pools. The house was the perfect size.

If you like peace and quiet the end of October is the time to go. Not many folks at the resort or beach. Restaurant and amenities close at the end of the month so be sure to arrive before then.

Owner's Response: Fall and spring are our favorite times too. Restaurant hours are limited during winter, but special holiday meals are available.

This is the way to travel with kids. House has 3 comfortable bedrooms and is meticulously kept. Full kitchen and outdoor grill. A short walk to the beach. Neighborhood is nice and peaceful. Felt perfectly comfortable letting the kids (12 and 14) run around on their own. Most relaxing vacation I've had in a while. I would go back again today if I could.

Really nice floor plan

  • 4 of 5

Golf cart was a blast. Little far from seawall. Deck and stairwell spindles new fixed or replaced. A/C drain needs cleaned out as outside drain was dripping pretty steady. Mystery of missing freezer shelves solved. They were under the sink. Might want to rethink the frilly bed covers. They basically get in the way. Pillowtop mattresses are hard on backs.

Awesome home!

  • 4 of 5

Aug, 2017 We had a wonderful time. The house and neighborhood amenities were awesome. Our only issue with the house itself was the extremely soft beds. If you have back or neck issues don't expect to get a good night sleep. And, unfortunately the mosquitos were out in force! Bug spray wouldn't keep them off of us, even while riding on the golf cart.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with the Anne Marie. It was close enough to the beach to walk there. The Golf Cart is needed if you want to go to the Beach Club or the Lazy River as it would be a long walk! The house was clean and everything perfect. Had everything you would need for your stay. Our only complaints are that the grill was very dirty when we got there and didn't heat well even after we cleaned it. Also, the railing posts at the end of the balcony are loose and it would be very dangerous for someone with a small child. Those need to be fixed.

Other than those two things it was great! We would definitely stay there again!
