About Nancy

I live in Houston and wanted a peaceful refuge to escape the heat and congestion of the big city. This house was perfect... the view is fabulous and it feels like I'm on the beach without leaving my deck. It's so close, that I can hear the waves, the seagulls & beach lovers without ever leaving my house. :) I have decided to share my beautiful home with caring guests that appreciate upscale furnishings.

Nancy purchased this house in 2009

Why Nancy chose Galveston

In Feb 2010 I renovated this home in a 'Cape Cod meets Key West' style. The home has a green belt behind it which is a protected area and gives the location a more private feeling than the typical beach home. You can lay in the master bed and look over the dunes to the water. Located in Pirates' Beach, the house is the perfect location for a relaxing vacation. You actually FEEL like you are on an island when you're at this house.

What makes this house unique

This home is ideal for two families or a group/family where some of the guests prefer a bit more privacy as it has the added benefit of a self-enclosed downstairs where the 4th bedroom and 3rd bath are located. Since there is no inside staircase, the room downstairs is insulated from the noise in the upstairs and likewise, the upper floor is insulated from noise downstairs. The downstairs is accessible through its own outside door.

The house was clean and well kept.

The only problem was the lack of two keys. We enjoyed the stay very much.

Lovely home with wonderful gathering area!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great girl's weekend at the Seaside Cottage! There were 10 of us and the open living area was a perfect gathering place to hang out, cook, and enjoy being together. The beds were comfortable (always a very important detail) and the kitchen was well equipped. Highly recommend this spot!

Perfect setting for our family of 9

  • 5 of 5

Bright, sunny, comfortable sofas, large table (one end used for an ongoing game of Monopoly), comfortable beds (a must for two old backs) and large bathrooms. The kitchen was roomy for two cooks with all the pots, pans and utensils needed. The dishes were pretty and there were plenty of plastic plates, bowls, and glasses for the four children. The Country Club staff was so helpful and made it easy to enter for the pool and invited us for other amenities. The beach was literally 1/2 block away and the house has a wonderful ocean view, especially from the spacious deck. We quickly found our way to all the restaurants and attractions we patronized. There was even a small deli in the neighborhood for last minute needs.

This was a wonderful vacation. Nancy rents a clean, attractive home with a perfect blend of friendliness and business. Her rental agreement was easy to read and easy to agree with. Thank you Nancy for offering our family the perfect seashore home for a week. We made beautiful memories there.

The Perfect Beach House Just Steps From The Water

  • 5 of 5

I recently rented this beautifully decorated, immaculately clean, charming Beach House for 4 couples who were visiting Galveston to compete in the Texas 70.3 Half-Ironman. This house was the perfect size and the perfect location,just steps from the water. The rental process was simple and easy and the owner was so pleasant to work with. Everything about the house was just as the pictures reflect but even better. We had plenty of room to relax and spread out, we used the kitchen for all of our meals as well as the large kitchen table that sat us all comfortably. Everyone agreed it was the perfect house for our group. If I ever come back to Galveston, I would love to stay in this home again and would highly recommend it to anyone.
