Hi, I'm Elaine!

I'm a native New Orleanean who moved to Houston 30 years ago looking for a business opportunity. I ended up opening an auto body repair shop in southwest Houston called Collision Auto Repair. And I've been fixing cars ever since. The only problem is " I know what it means to miss New Orleans". I started visiting Galveston to get away from it all and I fell in love immediately. It reminds me so much of New Olreans with the old victorian houses, antique shops, beautiful architecture, cobble stone streets, Mardi Gras and all. It's like New Orleans with a beach. Life doesn't get better than that. I know you'll fall in love too.

Here is my property:

This charming beach side cottage sits on a large lot just 1/2 a block from the beach. Our street actually dead ends at the beach. So it feels very private and great for kids because there is no traffic and no streets to cross to get to the beach. The house has large balconies on two...

Wonderful Retreat

The house was absolutely lovely with its decor and closeness to the beach. We went during the middle of the week, and the beach was very uncrowded unlike the Seawall beaches. We had plenty of time to go swimming and there are toys and boogie boards to take with you. Bring a wagon to take small children with you along with your stuff to the beach; that's what we did and it was great. It was very quiet and relaxing there. There were 5 adults and 1 child and we had plenty of room to stretch out and relax. We used the kitchen to cook dinners and breakfasts and there were plenty of utensils and dishes for all 6 of us. There are also lots of beach chairs for sitting out on the decks. Most helpful I think was the outdoor shower down beside the carport with both hot and cold water and also a water hose for rinsing your shoes and cars off. We had a wonderful time, and we would love to go there again!
