The space

Adorable 1913 home located 0.2 miles from the beach on Galveston Island with street parking. My small home (900 sq ft) has an open floor plan, 9' ceilings, One private bedroom with ONE Queen sz bed and a deck & hot tub right outside, A large living area with ONE Sleeper Sofa, and Air Mattresses Available per request. There is also a front porch, and a very small fenced in yard (in case you bring pets / mostly paved in the front yard). You will have privacy of the whole house during your visit.
Seawall Boulevard and the beach are 0.2 miles / within walking distance in a few minutes (stairs that lead down right onto the sand and surf are on either corner and have lifeguard towers). The new Pleasure Pier is only 1 mile away. There are a variety of restaurants very nearby such as: Ocean Grille & Beach Bar, Benno's Cajun Seafood, Saltgrass Steakhouse, Denny's, and Bubba Gump's. The Strand Historic District is also nearby if you enjoy shopping or want to take in Galveston's nightlife. The Cruise Terminal is 1.5 miles.
My house is great for couples, small families, or time alone but can easily accommodate 4+ adults. There is ONE queen bed in the only private room and ONE Queen sleeper sofa in the living area. I currently do not add additional fees for fur babies but do require guests clean up/sweep up after pets and cover fabric with a provided sheet (other guest are allergic to dander).
I will consider booking only a 1 NIGHT rental (inquire about the rate).
Parking is limited. There is ample space for ONE vehicle. One Guest Parking Pass is issued upon arrival. Other cars must park on the side street. There is no Pass required to park on 13th (going north toward Broadway) The city requires Park Pass for all residents within 2 blocks of Seawall Blvd. Contact me to get the Key info within 24 hours of arrival.

Guest access

You will have private access to the entire property during your stay. Contact me to discuss getting the key info within 24 hours of arrival.

Interaction with guests

I no longer live on the island but I do work here and also play music here fairly often. Let me know if you'd like to come and hear my band (Kickin It Dixie) while you are visiting. I'll be glad to let you know when and where.

Other things to note

New! Nightly rate includes mandatory city and state taxes. I do not currently charge additional Cleaning Fee's or Pet Fee's. I am willing to offer this as long as guests are willing to do their part in helping to keep the cost down. Let me know in advance if you do not want to participate (if you do not want to clean-up) and I can send you a "Special Offer" with the additional fee's added on.
New! A Guest Parking Pass is required. It is available inside the house upon arrival. It RED and on cheap construction paper (lol). They must be left in the house at Check-out.

House Rules

Self check-in with lockbox

Parking: The city is now requiring "Residential Guest Parking Permits". There is 1 RED Pass (made of construction paper) in the house for your auto. Please be gentle with it, lol. Other autos can park on 13th Street (headed north toward Broadway) without risk of a ticket. All residents within 2 blocks of Seawall Blvd must have the RED Pass.
It must be left in the house at Check-out!
Hot Tub: Please NO SAND IN THE HOT TUB! There are TWO hoses for rinsing. Do not allow anyone to stand on the cover!
Pets: Inquire If I will agree to allow your pet to stay. I ask folks to agree to Clean up/Sweep up and to cover any fabric with provided sheet if their pet is allowed on furniture. My yard is small but fenced. Please leave pets kenneled or outside if you are not home. (pups chew on chair legs..) Please clean up ALL pet messes both inside and out. Check for fleas before you arrive.
House Rules list: There is a Check-Out List to follow on the Mantel. It details cleaning up after yourself (wash your dishes, sweep up your debri if you create it, bag up the trash, do not toss "stuff" off the back deck) and be respectful of my home and my neighbors. It is unfortunate that I had to begin charging a security deposit. My apologies to the greater than 98% of awesome guests that visit! I LOVE hosting!

We had a wonderful weekend relaxing in the hot tub and enjoying the great location of this home. We walked to the beach and to restaurants nearby and felt perfectly safe. The bed and pillows were super comfy. Communication with Cheryl was great and check in was easy. My hubby would've liked the hottub to go a little hotter, but I thought it was very refreshing. The Keureg and coffee selections were so nice. Bring some sugar though. It may have been there, and I just didn't see it. House quickly got nice and cool. Would stay again for sure!

Went to the beach with my boyfriend and dog Luna. The house was just perfect exactly as described and looks in the photos. Very close to the beach and good food! Only downside, the washer was out of order but definitely wasn't an inconvenience for us due to the fact we only stayed 3nignts. Definitely recommend staying here and hey..... hot tub!!
