“Perfect little beach cottage with a homey feel.”
Reviewed 20 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Fun place, close to beach. Make sure to get the golf cart with it. Wonderful experience. Beds were comfy. House was clean. Loved the open layout. Screened in porch was amazing. Also loved the roof level deck for watching stars at night. Can hear the waves at night. The last review was pretty harsh.....guess you cant please everybody. Everything in it was a lie. We loved the place and will go back again and again. If you like to fish you HAVE to stay here. Beach is so close and also has a private fishing dock.

“If the health department was called out to look at this place, they would close them up.”
Reviewed 30 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The bottom floor was rated as a bedroom, laundry room and second bath. It was so nasty, dirty and full of black mold NO ONE could possibly stay in that room. We could not believe that this lady would even suggest someone stay in there. It seriously looks like a place where a serial killer would keep his intended subjects. This is for real. My friend and I opened the pad lock to this room and our mouths just fell open. We could not believe such disgust and smell. It was truly unbelievable. The upstairs could be nice. The main thing this place advertised was the nice screened in porch for evenings. Ha! The screens were ripped off. The chair pads could not be sat on as they were too molded and nasty. The smell of the house as we opened the door was high mold and animal. The sheets on the beds had dog hair all over them. The mattresses were stained with urine and who knows what else. We stripped all the beds and washed the linens, we had to take all the pillows off the sofa and the chairs as they were dirty and molded. We put sheets back on the beds and luckily had brought our own linens and covers. We covered the sofa with a clean sheet . We used paper products in the kitchen which we brought as the dishes and silverware were too dirty.
WE went to the store and got Lysol and lots of candles and spray. We also replaced the filthy air filter which looked as if it had never been cleaned or changed. We called the lady and told her we wanted our money back the minute we got there and saw the condition of the place. She said she would not refund our money. We do not have a lot of finance. We had saved and spent $1000 for this place, so we prayed and made the best that we could of it. I would not ever recommend this place to anyone. It is a health hazard and needs to be condemned. I have never been so disappointed or disgusted in my life. I was also very embarrassed as to the condition when my friend saw it. It really made me sick. We drove 6 hours to get here. The lady would not refund our money. So we had to make the best and try to clean it up, or loose our $1000 and drive 6 hours back home. Just sickening. Just disgustin!

I am very sorry to see this review of my beach house. The damage done to the house in recent tropical storms has been repaired. I got a contractor out to the house ASAP. Galveston West End experienced 85 mile per hour winds that tore a few of screens on the screened in porch that have now been replaced and or repaired. The downstairs took in some water during the recent rains prior to their arrival and since these guests I have had multiple professional cleaning crews clean the entire downstairs and have replaced all the linens and washed the house from top to bottom. To be fair, I had my cleaning crew stop by the beach house during these guests stay by to assist with items that this guest brought to my attention (and to deliver a new flat screen tv that was requested) and was told that she did not want my housekeeper to be at the house. I am disappointed to have such a negative review on my house. Every effort is made to provide a pleasant coastal experience for families. The linens are brand new. There are new down filled mattress pads on the beds. The central a/c system is a new unit as of 2015. The downstairs is used to store the washer dryer, games tables, golf cart and there is a bed down there, but there are also a 2 king sized bed (one is a portable king memory foam bed that is zipped inside a giant red beanbag chair) and a queen size bed that can be used in the upstairs making it easy for 6 people to sleep upstairs. I hope the other positive reviews and this response are helpful.

“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed 30 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

House was great. Very clean, everything you need. The upper deck is perfect for morning coffee! Its in a great location, short walk to the bay or a bit longer to the beach. Be sure to ask about the golf cart rental! You can easily get to either using that as well, including Rustys Bait and Tackle. It was so quiet and relaxing. Loved it. Hope to go back in the fall.

“Just Beachy!”
Reviewed 16 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We spent a wonderful weekend at the delightful "Hunky Dory" beachouse! Neat and tidy, comfortable furniture and beds, and oh that marvelous screened in porch! So nice to sit out in the mornings with coffee, and in the evenings with wine. It was just my husband and son and daughter in law, and it was everything we could ask for. The directions Barbara provided were clear and concise, all the more to make our stay stress free. Would be a wonderful place for a family with adolescents as the downstairs area would make a perfect "hide out"! The neighborhood was so peaceful and quiet. We will certainly be back!
