Hunky Dory, beach cottage with a fishing fettish :

Visited by Tripadvisor
Rental Home -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Galveston, Galveston Island, Texas
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. Less than one block from the best fishing waters in Galveston Bay, Private fishing pier and boat launch nearby. This simple but beautiful cottage offers fantastic views of the Gulf of Mexico and a peak at the Galveston Bay from the top deck. The house is located about 3 blocks from the beach. Come listen to the peace and quiet. There is a top of the line golf cart that you can rent with the home for getting to the beach and the private fishing pier and boat launch. ($75 a day; package deals available, must be a licensed driver and willing to accept liability). There are two bedrooms upstairs. One with a king size bed and the other with a queen. The large bean bag unzips to a king mattress. Bed... Read more

We wish our stay could have been longer!! Quiet location, the house had all we needed. The new AC kept the house nice and cool. Spent the evenings fishing at the little pier about a block away. We caught Stingray, Gafftop, couple small reds, and...More

This was our second stay and we will be back. It’s so peaceful and we slept well on both stays. Yes, a reviewer has complained that the property needs some TLC but we feel this is fairly represented in the nightly rental rate. It’s clear...More

We found this house to be clean, comfortable and in a good location. It was well stocked with necessities and we really enjoyed our stay. The covered porch was wonderful for morning coffee and evening nightcaps and cards discussions. My only note to the owner...More

About the neighborhood
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
