This is the best spot on the island

  • 4 of 5

Marc and Pamela: Enjoyed our stay as always. This being our 5th time at the retreat we've came to know some of the permanent residents. Everyone is so friendly. It's so relaxing here. We most love our walks on the beach, always looking for a sand dollar or two. I know we'll be back.

Lovely place. Unbelievable bird watching, moonrise, sunrise.

  • 5 of 5

On the water with crashing waves below the deck...just what we love. Woke up to amazing sunrises with birds and breakers. Mornings spent gathering shells that can't be found on the busy public beaches near town. Left us feeling recharged. Perfect place to get away from the crowds but less than half an hour away if you want a day of shopping or a night out in Galveston.

Perfect private get-away!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was exactly as it was represented on the website, well maintained, and clean. The house is in the perfect location for enjoying the view and the sound of the waves at all times. It's a quiet neighborhood, and includes easy access to the huge sandy beach which was never crowded during my stay. The little pocket beach was a great place to sit in the surf and let my dog play in the water. I had some trouble getting into the house (purely due to my own mistake) and Marc was extremely gracious, immediately responded, and got me inside within five minutes. I'd love to go back and highly recommend it!
