“Perfect for a family of 4+furry friend”
Reviewed September 16, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Sand and Serenity is awesome. We rented on short notice - and finding a pet friendly place is no easy task. S&S is convenient to most everything with either a short walk or quick drive. The owner has thought of everything and is easy to communicate with. Our family of 4+1 will definitely return.

“Perfect! We love it!”
Reviewed August 29, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We love this place. It is within walking distance of everything we wanted to do; beach, Pleasure Pier, shopping, and nice restaurants. I was walking with a 5 year old and a 3 year old and they made it no problem. The house is very nice with everything you could want. We plan on coming back every summer.

“what a gem!!!”
Reviewed August 7, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

It was wonderful to revisit this house this year!! Brenda,the owner, is so accommodating. Everything you need for a great stay is there and even a few extras. We enjoyed the view of the ocean from the front porch every day. The beach is just half a block from steps to sand. The area is very clean and quiet but close to many restaurants and activities. We took a short ride to the NASA space center. The fully stocked kitchen was a big plus because we could cook fresh seafood anytime we wanted or we had use of a grill to cook outdoors.Needless to say, it was very hard to leave this home.

“Paradise on the Gulf”
Reviewed July 22, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We have been coming to Galveston for the last 12 years renting houses each time and by far this is the best rental we have booked. Brenda was very helpful and prompt in her communications. We booked the house for 2 weeks and used it as a place for our family to meet up with us and there was plenty of room to entertain them and not feel claustrophobic. The kitchen was one on the best we have used and the houses proximity to amenities was superb.

“Galveston Getaway”
Reviewed July 14, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Very lovely, well-maintained and very clean property just 1 block from seawall. Made it easy walking since we had 2 of our grands with us (ages 3 & 4). Not crazy about Galveston's ocean water, but beach was not bad at all. The house has everything you could need and then some. The girls loved all the beach toys and rafts.
There are nice restaurants within walking distance as well (Saltgrass, etc.). Traffic not bad during weekdays, but by Fri. noon started getting very busy.
Would definitely come to this location again.

“Another wonderful stay”
Reviewed May 31, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This was our second visit to Brenda's beautiful cottage, and it was everything we expected after our first visit and more. The place is lovely and well-kept and the porch chairs make it perfect. We plan to make this our get-away location every year!

This house was in the perfect location, very clean and the décor was just right. Beds were very comfortable and seemed new. We had a great time sitting on the front porch looking out at the ocean, watched dolphins swim too, all from the porch. Restaurants, grocery stores are all within walking distance. I will stay here again. Owner is the nicest person I have dealt with in all my travel. Pleasure Pier is within walking distance as well as gift shops. It was never loud at night. We slept peacefully both nights. You will love this property and you will want to return.
