About Beth Maxwell

This house is owned by Kathy,Beth and Max. Kathy and Max grew up in Houston and are childhood friends. Max and Beth have been married for 30 years and spent that time in Colorado with their 4 children and 4 grands while taking many visits to their favorite place, the beach. Now we are putting our experience into having a house that we wish had been available for us.

Beth Maxwell purchased this house in 2012

Why Beth Maxwell chose Texas Gulf Coast

We have vacationed with our children and Texas family forever. This is a favorite area for us, away from the noise of the seawall but close enough to visit when we want to enjoy the downtown Galveston area. We have wanted to own for years and the opportunity became available and we went for it. This house will embrace you and welcome you in when you arrive, it is that kind of place. Warm, inviting, relaxing, embracing, you will feel like you have come home.

What makes this house unique

When you are coming down the road this little blue house stands out from the others. It is a cute cottage with great views of the water without being right on the beach. The fenced yard has 11 palm trees and lots of grass for all kinds of games, and a break from the sand. It is cool and refreshing to lay around and read a book in the hammock, or play a little volley ball.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I'm so sorry for the misunderstanding! The downstairs bedrooms were locked but the bath and laundry and refrigerator that are downstairs are always available. Next time you'll know!

I'm glad it didn't upset your stay.

The beach house had everything we needed! Inside it was super roomy for all to be able to visit. And the beach was just a short walk away. Beth was awesome to work with. We will be back

Owner's Response: This was a great guest, we had a snafu with the internet while they were visiting and they let the technician in to fix it, without ragging on me.which I appreciated. They left the house in good order and didn't take or break anything. I hope they come back.

Anchored for 3 years

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year in a row to visit Beth's wonderful beach house. Still as lovely, convenient and comfortable as ever. The beach, a short walk away, was in the best shape ever, clean and not crowded at all. We had all our kids, all our grandkids and 3 dogs. What a great vacation. I'm sure we will be back.

Great time!!! Can't wait to come back.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The home has a very cozy feel to it. It has a great short walk to the beach. There are many good sleeping areas, so everyone was comfortable. I informed my guests prior to bring their own blanket & pillows, we brought our own pans, utensils, and food. Mrs. Maxwell communicated with us great. I really appreciated her checking on us and made sure everything was okay at the home. My guests want to come back in the future. They all really enjoyed this home. Thank you Mrs. Maxwell!!
