About Dennis Banks

Lifetime Gulf Coast resident. Home owner and sailing off Bermuda Beach since 1988. After loosing our previous home to Ike we did not hesitate buying a second home in Bermuda Beach.

Dennis Banks purchased this house in 2009

Why Dennis Banks chose Galveston

There is no substitute for owning a front row house. There are open lots to the East and West offering an unobstructed panoramic view of the Gulf.

What makes this house unique

Having your morning coffee or tea on the front deck, watching the sunrise, seabirds & dolphin swim past is the greatest possible way to wake up.

Perfect location and a great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 adults and 4 kids stay for my Dad's 70th birthday. The kitchen, dining room, and bar area were open and perfect for our family. The view from the deck is amazing and a great place to enjoy a morning coffee. Our kids were on the beach all day and we could watch them play from the deck. Overall great place to stay.

i wish we could have stayed longer!

  • 5 of 5

great location, great views, beautiful interior, comfortable bed, easy to find, quiet area. i was very sad leaving this house! there were only 2 of us but i could easily imagine a group of folks staying here. it looks average size on the outside but somehow it's huge on the inside. and it was nice that there's a good chunk of space on either side of the house so you have privacy and unobstructed views. there's a neighbor in the back but you don't even notice. nice wrap around porch so you have options if the wind picks up on one side. we just loved it here!

Owner's Response: Joanne - Thank you so much for the kind words & I am happy you enjoyed your stay! I designed & built the kitchen/ dining area with large dinner groups in mind. Plenty of room for 3-4 cooks in the kitchen with 6-8 people seated around the island! The lack of houses on either side of Cat Alley give the feel of you being on your own private beach. If you find yourself on the island in warmer months, please stop in for a quick sail & adult beverage. Dennis

Didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from an amazing stay at cat alley. It was the perfect getaway for us. We spent the entire time on the gorgeous balcony overlooking the ocean. There is plenty of space underneath the house for barbecuing and room for the kids to play and ride around on scooters/bikes. My son especially liked waiting for the ice cream truck to come every day! The house is in an excellent location, and not too far from the strand, pleasure pier, and shopping. There are plenty of beachtowels and a fully stocked kitchen. We are already trying to figure out when we can come back! Thanks Dennis for an awesome vacation in your home! We'll be back!

Had a great time. Location is fantastic. Sitting on the porch, drinking my coffee watching the sunrise in the morning; that is what I am going to miss.
