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.

Easter Weekend

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time at the beach house. I went with my cousin and his friends, plenty of space and good kitchen. Though the oven didn't work, cooking dinner was easy to do with what was available. The hammock outside was a little beat up but held me (255lbs). The beach was a 8 min walk from the house (bring bikes). Definitely will be going back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. So glad that you had a positive experience. I was unaware that the oven didn't work. Now that I know we will definitely have it repaired. Glad you brought your bikes as there are so many places to ride and explore as we back up to the State Park. We look forward to your return and will have a new hammock in place soon to replace our ever popular one!

All the fun of camping, all the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our long weekend at the Palm Beach cabin and we're already planning to return! We booked last minute and took our dog. Communication from Linda was fantastic, she was really helpful with the questions we had.

We loved the cabin from the moment we arrived, it reminded us of camping trips (but without any of the hard work!), it was the perfect place to chill out. It's a short walk to the beach and has a great deck and garden to relax in - reading in the hammock under palm trees was a highlight. There was only two of us so we had plenty of space and privacy. It was very clean and comfortable, in fact the pictures do not do the interior justice, and a shower perfect for my husband's 6'4" height!

Great House

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying since January waiting on our new house to be finished, which has been a pretty stressful experience. Linda and Richard have been great and appreciate the extra efforts they have made for us to be comfortable. Great fishing around the corner and a good area to clean them. I defenitely recommend this house.

It was Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Property was as described and pictured. The owner was very helpful in making sure that we had a good stay. The week started out as a girls retreat and when they left my husband and two boys joined me. Would highly recommend it as girls retreat or for a small family. Place was well stocked. Nice towels, linens and very comfy full size beds. Stayed cool even in August, good a/c. Well stocked. Good TV's and internet access. Outdoor shower was the best! Hung out most of the time at the picnic table under the house. Wonderful ocean breeze and shade which was great in the August heat. Very relaxing!! My 10 y/o son thought the one room cabin seemed "adventurous."
