“Great house and as advertised. Cut short by Harvey, dangit!”
Reviewed 25 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

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 to yourself. The neighbors are friendly. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook. The screened porch was nice too. The wifi is a little slow, but that isn't what we went there for. If you want to be out of the bustle of the normal touristy crowd, this is the place. We will be back.

“Great Beach House Getaway”
Reviewed 19 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

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 to bring our two dachshunds with us. The master bed was very comfortable and my husband was happy that their was a TV that had a Western channel. We also rented the owner's golf cart for the day and it was nice to drive around the neighborhood and down to the pier. Would love to go back when the weather is cooler.

“Great time”
Reviewed 11 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

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.

Had a wonderful holiday with family at this clean and comfortable house. Close to beach and bay. Quiet neighborhood away from busy tourist spots, but close enough to get to major attractions with a short drive.

Great place for a long weekend. We brought our dachshunds, and they had a blast at the beach. We took the golf cart each day. Made visiting the beach super easy. The house is nice and we would stay again.
