    Cute little beach house close to everything!

    Reviewed by: Jensen on


    This little beach house is cute, clean and close to the Seawall. A very friendly couple, who owns the property, is on site and very helpful. They allow pets and provide use of beach chairs and bikes which was awesome! We enjoyed our vacation in Galveston and had a wonderful family trip!

    Great place to stay! The bikes were a nice touch!
