About Linda Denson

We love the island life! We love the cool fresh breeze from the water. We love the feel of warm sand between our toes and the smell of salt air. We love the free airshow of pelicans flying just for us! We love fresh snapper with chunks of blue crab. We love Hawaiian shaved ice on the beach!! We love the Victorican architecture and the Art Walks. We love driving for miles and being able to see the ocean! And all of this on Galveston Island!

Linda Denson purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Linda Denson chose Galveston

This is a central location to the west end of the island. Very near the beach. About 1/4 mile. In the middle of wide open spaces. Country living. Down the street from where our friends keep their horses. Still only 20 minutes away from the Historic Strand Shopping and University of Texas Medical Branch. Lots of resturants easily accessible.

We had a Great Time

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time but then again we always do when we get to spend a weekend in Galveston. Linda's house was clean. The beds had nice linens. It had been fixed up without being completely remodeled which gave it a cozy kind of feeling. Linda was accessible but not bothersome. Yes we would rent this property again.
