A great place to getaway and enjoy what the beach has to offer. You will love the LARGE screened in porch to relax with your friends and family.

Our stay was brief but fun while it lasted. Hurricane Harvey made us leave early and Barbara was great about working with us. The house is very nice. About 20 minutes from the main seawall part of Galveston. Beach was right down the road, and the gold cart came in real handy. Quiet, secluded and plenty of room to have...

Management response:

Thanks so much. Glad you got to enjoy the beach and the house. I'm so grateful that the storm has passed and the house is just fine! Come back soon. Best, Barbara

My family and I rented the Hunky Dory for the week-end. I have to say that it was a lot further down the island than I thought.......but once we got there....It was like.."Ahhhhh". The beach house had everything that you would need to have an enjoyable stay. It was also pet friendly and we really liked that we were able...

My family & I had a great time at this beach house. Renting the golf cart was more than useful. Everything was great while staying there. Neighborhood & beach was very quiet.

Management response:

Thanks so much. Glad you enjoyed your time at the beach house. Come back soon.

About the neighbourhood
Come to the coast to RELAX! With this beach cottage you get access to a private fishing pier! Improvements are being made to this house all the time. NEW carpeting installed this month. The fishing pier is fabulous; with lights, benches and a fish cleaning station for you and your guests to use and it's located a block from the house! The beach is about a 5 minute walk from the house. You will love staying at this house. It's all about the details...this is a very nice house. Bay Harbor is the best kept secret in Galveston. 17 miles west of 61st street off Seawall and 3 miles east of the San Louis Pass. Quaint. Quiet. Wonderful breeze. 'Off the grid'; come relax and unwind. Great neighbors, even better fishing! You will enjoy the views of the Bay from the t... more
