This was our 2nd stay and we love it. Will be back again. Perfect, quiet and not far from the beach.
This quaint and comfortable cottage is perfect for a couple's getaway. The location is great, close to the beach and The Strand. Everything you could possibly need is in the cottage. The bed is incredibly comfy for a great nights sleep. The beautiful courtyard is perfect for relaxing in the morning or evening. It even has a grill. Reza has thought of everything and she is also the perfect hostess. She is there if you need her but you don't even know she is there. We were very pleased with everything and will definitely be back!
We loved our stay at Reza's home away from home. She has everything you need for a comfortable stay with books, movies and games, beach towels, kitchen supplies and coffee! We will definitely be returning.
We had a great time at Shell Seekers. Highly recommend for couples looking to enjoy some time on the beach in a quiet part of town. Reza has thought of everything - we were very comfortable during our stay. We hope to return sooner than later!
Shell Seekers Hideaway is indeed a hideaway. Very close to the beach. We were able to cook, watch TV and connected to the wifi. Just a perfect spot for my wife and I. Very clean place. Reza provided us with chairs and towels to go to the beach. I enjoyed our stay very much.
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!
