Cozy retreat for two, only 3 & 1/2 blocks from the beach and six from the new Pleasure Pier. Situated within the property of the Dietiker's Coral Bungalow, Shell Seekers is a perfect place for a relaxing get away, with a private patio, small tropical garden and enclosed by a fence it gives you a secluded spot to while away the hours or cook a meal on the bbq, or you can catch a breeze on the upstairs deck listening to the waves. The Cottage is compact like a ship's quarters, but with everything you need. The living room has a small seating area with flat screen TV and WiFi. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the major appliances, kitchen utensils, dishes and a bar with 2 stools for a meal. The bedroom has a comfortable Queen sized bed with a Tempur-pedic mattress topper and lots of storage on the side and above. The small bathroom features a tiled shower with beach motif.

Reza Dietiker purchased this cottage in 1998
Reza and Don moved to Galveston in1998 to escape the winters of Connecticut. They love living on the Island and taking long walks on the beach hand in hand and with their three dogs. They also love the year-round beautiful weather that the island has to offer.

Clean comfortable and cozy inside; A deck to seat and enjoy your morning coffee, a small private Patio and Tropical Garden to relax after a day at the beach and enclosed by its own fence for privacy and within the property gated parking , Shell Seekers is a secluded and perfect hide away for two.... .,
Great little garage apartment hidden away between palm trees and ever greens. Seems like a piece of tropical paradise that reminds one of Costa Rica. Not far from the beach and quick trips to quirky little bars on the Strand and Post Office Street. The inside is really two rooms with a small bathroom and small shower. Both rooms have portable AC units if you need them. Kitchen had everything you need including a blender for margaritas! Stove and oven work well. There is a microwave. Door has a screen of you want to let fresh breeze in. No noise to be heard. Private parking for one car in back so your car is protected. You have your own private garden Judy down the steps. Owner's house is in front and detached so you really are by yourself. The only downside is the mattress. It's a queen but very bouncy and not too firm thus the 4 stars. Other than that a great place! Reza takes care of everything and is super nice!
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
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.
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!!!
We had a very relaxing time at Reeza's property. The location was ideal.
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!!
