About Linda Denson

I came to Galveston in 1992 and fell in love with the healing sound of the surf, the soft sand, the breathtaking sunsets, the palm trees, the Victorian Architecture, the art galleries, and the Strand shopping. My husband and I remodel beach houses and historical homes and wanted a place extended family could stay when they visit. Galveston is a cultural jewel with a rich history. We are blessed that we can call Galveston Island home.

Linda Denson purchased this house in 1999

Why Linda Denson chose Galveston

Our family purchased the beach house as a place Mom and Dad could come stay when they visited. Mom and I totally remodeled this place to be a restful and fun place to stay with GREAT BEDS. Mom is very picky about beds... Our family has restored and remodeled homes for many years. This experience along with my interior design and art background made for a really unique and comfortable beach house. The beach has been a great place to find unique seashells and sharks teeth (but no sharks!) Palm Beach Galveston is almost like having your own private beach.

What makes this house unique

Awesome views from the huge deck. Very relaxing atmosphere. Exquisite underwater-look fish ceramic tile in the kitchen. Comfy beds with high quality soft linens. Hand painted Italian ceramic shell themed dishes, Enough colorful beachy melamine dinnerware for an indoor/outdoor buffet for family and friends. French doors that open up to the deck to enjoy the morning sunrise with your coffee.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such a wonderful time! I couldn't believe what an awesome view you have from both sides of the deck. My kids could not stop talking about how comfy their beds were and I couldn't agree more!! We definitely had all the comforts of home.

Great Vacation Week

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Linda's beach house. Very cute house with comfy beds. The three little boys and I really enjoyed just sitting on the decks (moving with the sun) and taking in the water/beach views. The house is a very short distance to the beach (walk past two houses). The house also has a fenced yard (with small fence slats) to help keep little dogs safe. Would recommend Linda's beach house to friends and family.

Wish we could have stayed longer......

A beautiful place to relax and enjoy the beach

  • 4 of 5

This place does not need many words to discribe how much we enjoyed our stay.Thanks to Linda and her beautiful beach house we were able to spend a very relaxing weekend. We can recommend this place to families as well as couples and even our animal friends.

Our dog loved to stay on the beautiful and large balcony just to relax in the sun and observing people and other dogs passing by and enjoyed the long walkings at the beach.

They were awesome

  • 5 of 5

Just as described, loved that we were within walking distance to the beach. We walked it every night. Even after playing on it all day. So relaxing, the owners are awesome. Just a call away if we needed anything.

Best time ever

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time. 2 minutes walk to the beach, my kids barely got out of the water. Quite, almost secluded area, away from the hustle of town. Closed off shower is awesome! House well maintained! Big fridge, everything you need in the kitchen. Has some games and puzzles for the kids (if you can keep them in the house! :-)

A bunch of beach toys, little chairs, even flip-flops for kids in the downstairs laundry/storage room (perfect place to store all beach-related stuff instead of dragging it upstairs). We loved this place! My kids said they wished that was their house permanently! I wish so too!!! :-) Highly recommended!

Nice place to stay with good views.

  • 4 of 5

The beach house was exactly as described in the ad so no surprises there. The biggest surprise was the ridiculous amount of sea weed washing up onto the beach. There was so much that it acted as a barrier to getting to the water and stunk horribly. Efforts were made by the city to clear it but it just kept coming in. We will never visit Galveston again during this part of the year. There was also a rather large snake sighted on the dunes so do not ignore the warning signs along the beach. The snakes are real. We had the opportunity to meet the owners and they were very nice and have done a good job keeping the property in shape. The house is several miles from the main tourist area so it tends to be peaceful unless there are other renters partying in neighboring homes. The neighborhood appeared to be about 50% rental properties and there were some partiers that went on until the early morning hours but it wasn't a constant or a huge issue. Other minor issues that need some attention were 1) the stove is not level so stove top cooking was harder than it needed to be 2) there was an outdoor light that wasn't working in the lower parking area and 3) the clothes dryer did not work very well - our towels never got dry and we ended up just hanging them over the railing to dry. The property is a good value but buyer beware on the seasonal issues like the sea weed that we encountered.

Weekend Getaway with Family

  • 5 of 5

Myself, 16 year old and 18 year old daughters, 3 year old grandson and husband wanted to take a quick weekend to the beach. This was the perfect place. It was outside of the hustle of the main seawall area in a nice quiet area, in short walking distance to the beach but still close enough that we could drive into town to eat, go to the Pier and to the waterpark easily. The house was lovely. It was well maintained, extremely clean and had every amenity of home. There were even beach toys for kids, chairs, an umbrella, etc. It was very peaceful which is exactly what I was looking for. I lost my sister very recently and needed a little time. The breeze on the decks were so lovely, I could have slept out there had there been lounge chairs. I would recommend it without hesitation.
