Cute house. Great location.

Loved this house. Plenty of room for our group of 8. 6 people in beds & 2 babies in our pack n plays. House was very clean & had everything we needed (dishes, towels etc). Owner was very nice. We will try to get this same house next time we are in Galveston.

Beautiful/comfortable little beach house !!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time in this beach house! Cheryl and Greg have made sure to make it just like home and it has everything that you need it in except for your swimsuit! The kitchen is stocked with cooking utensils, we grilled and cooked and were comfortable. The beds were amazing with feather padding. The washer/dryer was a life saver and used each day. They have done a great job remodeding this older home right down to the seaside colors throughout the home. We went to the beach, swam, shopped, and just relaxed. We had 6 people with us so we had lots of room and were comfortable. We have decided to make this an annual tradition in our family to return to the beach and will be back next year! Well worth the money! Thanks!!

The only thing we want you to have to worry about is getting a sunburn. We look forward to you coming back again and again. This was set up to be a family home and we are proud to have you in our family! Thanks again!

Great Cottage Close to the Water

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time at the Texas Star Cottage. There was plenty of space for our children, the amenities were superb, and we were close to everything important. We loved the large kitchen, outdoor grill, and bunkbeds for the kids. We didn't need to go anywhere; we had a great time in our cottage!

The antique store right down the road was great. Loved the restaurants, boogie boarding in the waves, building sand castles, and exploring the island. Also enjoyed watching for dolphins at SeaWolfe Park. Very fun vacation! Just wish it was closer...
