The house is what we expected and more. Upon arrival, my husband fixed his coffee and we sat on the front deck and listened to the surf – how wonderful – peaceful after a day of driving. The place is roomy and clean and decorated with all sorts of interesting pieces. The kitchen is more than functional. There is also a back deck with stairs going down to a small fenced yard. We only used one of the two bedrooms and fixed breakfast each morning which we ate at the dining table. There was more than ample room for all our stuff and a comfy couch to watch TV which we did for a short while – but rather enjoyed sitting outside in the front. We took several walks down to the beach – hardly a block to the stairs from the Seawall. We were also able to do laundry before we headed out for more of our road trip.
Outstanding location,Immaculately clean inside with all the modern conveniences,and a quite neighborhood. The deck with the lifeguard style chairs was my favorite place to relax.
This was our second time staying at this location and we once again found it to be a great "home base" for our Galveston vacation. Loved being practically across the street from the beach and central to all of the island attractions. The place is pet friendly and was welcoming to our two small terriers. Coffee on the front porch in the morning is a relaxing start to the day. Brenda provides all the amenities that make this a home away from home.
This rental was exceptionally appointed. The home really felt like a home. The home was well fitted with appliances. It was clean and gave the feel of being loved (well cared for). There was no need that wasn't met. Plenty of supplies, very comfortable furnishings with a solid central AC unit, and plenty of hot water.
This was a home I would have been happy to call my own. The view from the deck was not too distant from the gulf and sitting out on the deck in the evening with its cool with soothing gulf breezes was without exception a beautiful experience. The sounds of the gulf in the evening were great and very peaceful. I would definitely rent again and hope many have the opportunity to enjoy this piece of serenity.
Our fourth visit and once again, Sand and Serenity delivered. This lovely, well-kept cottage is our home away from home in Galveston. We look forward to many more stays.
