Sublime!

  • 5 of 5

Our fourth stay at Shell Seekers (our first visit here was in 2012)--this cozy apartment loses none of its charm or convenience. If you like the sound of the waves, the surf and Sea Wall are about three short blocks away, and surf is what you hear from the deck or downstairs patio. Like to explore Galveston's downtown? It is easy walking distance. And the new Bryan Museum in the former Galveston Orphanage building is two blocks away, and well worth a visit. If you get tired of going to restaurants, the Shell Seekers' small kitchen has everything you need to cook for yourselves. If you are partial to lavish, modern condos with a picture window view of the Gulf, then look elsewhere. Shell Seekers lets you pretend you were born on the island. This second story garage apartment is well maintained, clean, tidy, and small. More than two people will feel like a crowd. Everything works: never ran out of hot water or wifi.We found the bed to be as comfortable as home. Perfect location to explore Galveston on foot or on bikes

Quiet, quaint and cozy

  • 5 of 5

This is a small slice of paradise in the heart of Galveston. The cottage was clean and well equipped. The location was perfect for accessing everything on the island. Reza is conscientious of security and provides parking behind locked gates. She is a gracious host and let's the guest enjoy their privacy and time. When we come back, we will definitely see if there is availability at the Shell Seekers cottage.

Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, comfortable and cozy. The cottage has honestly a peaceful feel to it, some moments we wanted to just be lazy and stay in the cottage. The beach is only a 5-10min walk, you and your significant other can use that time to bond and feel young again, other activities and restaurants are also within walking distance, but u can also drive if u choose to, we had no issues with finding parking. Thank you Reza for opening the doors to your cottage, allowing us the chance to have such an unforgettable weekend away. We are very pleased and grateful for ur hospitality. We definitely hope to return again soon. Thank you!!!

Perfectly out of the way!

  • 5 of 5

What an awesome little bungalow! Convenient to every part of the island yet perfectly tucked away. Quiet, clean, well appointed little place for just the two of us. The off street parking is just what my hubby wanted...makes you feel like your things are better protected. We absolutely loved our stay!

Reza is the perfect hostess! We can't wait to come back!!
