About Ross W
We moved to Galveston from the DFW area in 2005. Started buying and remodeling homes for vacation rentals in 2007. We fell in love with Galveston and all the people on the Island. We have very much enjoyed sharing our homes with guests coming for a visit to Galveston.
Ross W purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Ross W chose San Jacinto
The home is in a perfect location. Central to everything on the Island. It is a short walk to the beaches, and about 1/2 mile to the new Pleasure Pier.

Great location, sweet old house and very accommodating owners.
We rent a house every Christmas in Galveston. This is the first house we rented that the owners decorated it with a Christmas tree and decorations in every room. We had a small problem on Christmas Eve where we had to call the owner for help. He was very responsive and the problem was resolved in 20 minutes.
Thank you all again for staying with us. We hope you return sometime!

Excellent location for a Galveston getaway!
Place was perfect for three couples to enjoy with mucho comfort! Huge kitchen, outside decked areas, and comfortable beds. Location rocked and had two killer refrigerators, too. Highly recommend!
The pictures don’t do it justice. Great location, great neighborhood and great house. It met and exceeded our expectations.
great for family vacation.
Very warm place, it's great for family vacation. It's big enough for 2 families to stay. Kitchen has all the supplies you need.
If there is hand soap upstairs, extra rolls of bath tissue, and air fresher inside the house will be even better.
Bring your rubber gloves.
I wish I could post pics with this review. My guest and myself was not happy with the condition of the house. The closets were not available for us to hang are clothes. The sofa in the living room was filthy. It was very apparent that it had not been cleaned. We were looking for the pull out sofa bed and instead we found dirt, grime and debris under the cushions. The bottoms of our feet were black from the dirty floor. The fan chains are greasy and dirty. Many of the pots and pans were rusted. The ones that weren't rusted were not clean. While preparing to cook breakfast, roaches crawled across the counters. The chairs on the decks had to be cleaned before we could use them. The ashtrays on the dirty table outside were broken and dirty. The back yard is dirt, NO Grass. The photos for this listing do not give an honest view of this property. I had the same issues as the review dated 7/17/17. The owner states things were addressed, when they have not been. To imply that someone used to much toilet paper as a response to lack of it. Is simply just rude!
I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay at our home. I'm afraid your review is way out of line. The floors are swept and mopped after each guest stay. As far as toilet paper goes, the housekeepers leave 4 extra rolls out for each guest stay. So for 10 people staying for 2 nights that should be more than plenty. After that, if someone is ill and using more, then the guest will need to supply more. Especially at 10pm. And I believe that is why you wrote this false review. As for the pots and pans, since I just got this review the other day, I went over to the house. Yes, there was 1 cookie sheet that had some rust on it and 1 skillet that had been used, burned and put away without cleaning. Both have been replaced. As for the back deck, in Nov we had a lot of rain. So even though the housekeepers had wiped the plastic chairs off on the deck, with the rain and being under a large tree makes for a messy deck sometimes with the leaves falling. We power wash the decks off once a year, maybe we need to do that more than that. We don't really want to cut the large tree down as it is old and is nice shade. But it also makes it hard to grow grass. So I think we will have to do something else to the backyard to keep it from being mud after rain. There is some grass but not the whole yard.
Again, I am sorry you felt to write a review of this nature. But in reading all the former reviews future guests will see that the home is clean and comfortable.
Thanks for reading this response and I hope you all have a great day!

Wonderful house and excellent owners
We used dolphins run as a temporary rental while we were relocating to Galveston. Owners were great and did anything they could to help us out. House was beautiful and didn't have any problems with neighbors/neighborhood.
Hi Mark and family,
Thanks again for staying with us, and I am glad we were able to assist with your move! Good luck for your future and I hope you all the good luck here in Texas.
