This was very nice little place. Three grown men stayed here for 5 days and it was easy to settle into. But we did have to move many of the fragile decorative items in order to better use the spaces. Location was good, especially for walking. Kitchen was well stocked with items.

This cottage is perfect for my Galveston getaways and I have returned several times. Highly recommend. The House Company's staff is very attentive and responsive.

This cottage is beautifully decorated and well-appointed. Its interior is comfortable and better finished than the usual vacation rental. Great location -- one block from the beach. It's small and cozy--perfect for 1 or 2; OK for a small group.
Since I knew we'd spend time just hanging out and relaxing in the house when we weren't on the beach it was nice to find a place like this. Super cute and comfy for just hanging out, playing Scrabble, reading and relaxing. I really enjoyed my coffee time in the front porch swing in the mornings with great breezes off the ocean. Even being so close to the main road the traffic noise was not an issue at all and in about a two minute walk you're on the beach, which was super convenient. The surrounding houses are hit and miss as far as level of disrepair, but our cottage was mostly fine. The front gate needs a little repair, but other than that everything was great.
First of all we loved the house. It's small and old but nicely refurbished and well kept. The house has everything you need to be comfortable during a stay and really feels like a home. The one critique of the interior would be the full size tub in the tiny bathroom which makes it really hard to get in and out.
The property is small and the rear parking is quite tight but still manageable with our full size SUV. The front porch swing is a nice place to relax during a morning cup of coffee or winding down a day.
Access to the beach is great with only a 2 - 3 minute walk to the surf.
Now for the bad stuff...
The neighbors to the east had a bearing going out on their AC unit which sounded like nails on a chalkboard but very very loud. This lasted two days. The AC repairman was finally out so I think that's most likely fixed now.
The neighbors to the west of the house like to "party" late into the evening playing very loud music. After a tiring day in the sun it's not something you want to hear when trying to sleep. This happened more than once during our 3 night stay.
I would still happily return to the house for another vacation but I would bring ear plugs next time.
Our overall rental experience was very good. The Lazy Days Cottage is so welcoming and comfortable. It sleeps 6 and is adorable in every possible way. Looks brand new and has many brand new items inside the house. Probably not ideal for little kids as there are a lot of knick knacks around that give it such a great beachy atmosphere. Older kids should be able to appreciate all the special touches and behave respectfully around them. We had our teenagers and they loved it. The kitchen is well equipped. All in all, we loved our time there and in Galveston. The cottage is within a block of the seawall and ocean and just a short walk to Pleasure Pier, shopping and dining. We enjoyed the less crowded beach near the house versus going to a public beach.
