My family has stayed in many VRBO rentals and Reza’s is at the top of our favorites list. It’s a lovely, quiet tucked away treasure in Galveston. We visited in sweltering July and enjoyed coming back to the cool hideaway after being out in the sun everyday. Reza has considered every detail in making her place a home-away-from-home for guests—from little side tables and reading lamps to pantry basics (Canola AND Olive Oil) to beach towels and chairs and a beach cooler. (My wife’s a mystery lover and was thrilled that Reza’s selection of books—better than the usual!) Reza is a lovely hostess, although we barely saw her, and her rental is walking distance to the beach and restaurants on the main strip. Truly, the only negative about the place is that you eventually have to leave it!
We couldn't have been happier with where we chose to stay. Reza was such a wonderful host, we loved the opportunity to not just visit Galveston but to feel like we lived there! 3 blocks from getting your feet in the sand, quiet, and private! We will be staying again!
What a perfect spot! The apartment is small but very comfortable, and so well equipped; the deck and patio are perfect for morning coffee and evening wine. I imagine everyone who stays there feels like they've discovered their own little private hideaway. We will be back.
For the half the price and double the amenities of a hotel, you can't pass up on staying here.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay! It truly felt like our own little oasis and we couldn't have been more pleased. The property was just like the pictures and description portrayed, and I have already recommended the property to family and friends. Reza, the owner couldn't have been sweeter or more accommodating and she is doing a great job keeping the property up and making sure it has all the essentials you need. My husband and I loved our getaway so much that we plan to book all our future visits at this little oasis Shell Seekers Hideaway!
