An oasis near the beach
5/5 stars
We were so comfortable at this cute house full of interesting antiques and modern conveniences, and our little dog too! Great location, friendly neighbors, and a fully equipped kitchen. We got the rest we were seeking!

The Perfect Place
5/5 stars
The Sealy Cottage sealed the deal on a perfect beach getaway ! I had not been to Galveston in over 30 years and was not quite sure what to expect. The location was great for us. The neighborhood is very safe and cute, parking is easy with the residential guest pass, access to the beach is totally walkable, and the beaches weren’t crowded during our visit. We walked to the beach every morning and evening and took looonnng walks all the way down to the end of East Beach. The dog was in heaven. I had to do some work while there and the Internet was fast, and the dining room table was the perfect desk. We cooked most meals at the cottage and the kitchen was well appointed. The beds were comfortable, and the furnishings were very nice. Overall, it just couldn’t have been any better. Highly recommend.

Family vacation
5/5 stars
Our first family vacation since 2019 and first time in the area.  Location was perfect and within walking distance to the beach.  The property was well maintained with updated fixtures and amenities.  The house was warm and cozy, with a nautical theme throughout.  The open layout was a plus.  Two recommendations would be to provide two sets of towels for lengthy stay guests and updating of the pullout sofa (thin mattress with sheets that fit the sofa bed). The exterior was appealing, with fresh paint and a well-maintained lawn. Overall, it was a pleasurable stay.  Would visit again.

Peaceful Decadence
5/5 stars
Great place for our family to relax in when not taking in the scenery and attractions that beautiful Galveston has to offer! Minutes from the beaches and the Strand where most of the museums and attractions are. Our sons enjoyed the comfy beds and lush blankets. Our pup found haven in the fenced yard and pet friendly accommodations! Home was fully stocked with all the necessities for us to just unpack and enjoy!

Pleasantly Surprised!
5/5 stars
We had a fantastic weekend at the Sealy Cottage in Galveston. The cottage is newly renovated, light, bright and very tastefully appointed. The kitchen/barware included everything we needed to cook delicious seafood meals in the evenings and enjoy cocktails in the fenced yard with our golden. We were able to enjoy sleeping in as the home is located on a quiet street and the bedding/pillows are high quality and very comfortable. The owners even thought of putting blackout curtains in the bedrooms so they rooms can stay dark and cool. The cottage is in a great location to the beach (an easy 4 block walk), restaurants, fun things to do in town and UTMB Health. We are from Austin and had not been to Galveston since we were kids. We were pleasantly surprised by its charm. We look forward to returning and hope to stay in the Sealy Cottage in the future.

Delightful House w/ Amazing Garage Area

This home had something for every person in our family. Our teens LOVED the garage hangout area and short distance to the beach. Our Nana ABSOLUTELY loved the front porch. Husband and I ENJOYED the kitchen and coffee bar.

Great cottage close to beach
5/5 stars
We enjoyed a fun weekend at this adorable, updated cottage! It is a very welcoming home with lots of natural light in a quiet neighborhood. The beds are super comfortable, the shower head has great water pressure and the kitchen had what we needed to cook at home. It's an easy to walk to the beach. And, it has a perfect hang-out space downstairs! I really liked the little touches around the house that shows the owners care about their guests. Definitely would stay here again!

Darling house!
5/5 stars
I love this cozy little home. Fantastic location - you can walk down the street to the beach. Although a classic Galveston home, it was nicely updated and had all the amenities we needed. I'd love to come back and invite friends as the downstairs garage is set up like a fun ice house/ hangout space. It would be (literally!) a cool place to hang out during warmer weather as you can raise the door to get the sea breeze and hear the ocean but you're protected from the sun and somewhat insulated from the heat. Host was great and is really open to feedback on making a great place even better.
