Owner's reply:

Thank you for the great review! It was my pleasure to work with you and your daughter! I will look forward to seeing you in the future!

We stayed at Pelican Cay years ago when our children were in school. We decided to return for a mini vacation with our adult children. It was everything that we remembered. Pelican Cay is great for families. It is a quiet neighborhood with miles of beach. They had updated several rooms and everything was very organized. Lawanda was very helpful and made special arrangements for us. She responded to my emails and text in a very timely manner even though she was out of town herself. The house is very family friendly with three nice size bedrooms and a loft area. It seems very roomy for its size. It is just a short walk to the beach. There were only two other families on the beach for as far as the eye could see. Everyone enjoyed chasing crabs in the evening and flying kites during the day on the beach. We made many new memories with our children being adults with our grandchildren. We took family pictures on the beach to compare.I highly recommend Pelican Cay especially for families! Thank you for providing our family the opportunity to make new memories at Pelican Cay!

LaWanda Royer

Owner's reply:

Thank you for such a nice review! I am so glad we could work it out for you to be there. Making memories is what it is all about and I am glad your family loved returning to Pelican Cay.
Have a great summer!

Beach house

Great set up inside. Plenty of space, very clean, and close to the beach! I would definitely rent from our courteous host again!

LaWanda Royer

Owner's reply:

Thank you, Tracy! You were great and I thank you for taking such good care of my bag I left I hope you and your family have a great summer!
Thanks so much for choosing Pelican Cay for your beach fun!

Great Stay

We could not have asked for a better house on this trip. The house is clean and well cared for. The location is quiet. Beaches are great for fishing and leisure. We even saw a phenomena when bio-luminescent phytoplankton lit up the night ocean like streaks of blue lightning in the crashing waves. Marc was prompt on his responses to me and made sure we had a great week. We would highly recommend this house for any couple or small family.

Gretchen Lisa Gadecki

Pflugerville, TX

Wonderful, secluded, quiet neighborhood and beach

Had a peaceful, relaxing stay here at Pelican Cay with my family. It was just the kind of beach we love - not many people and plenty of sea shells. We were away from the hustle and bustle of Galveston, but still close enough to take day trips. The house and beds were very comfortable. My teenage daughter loved the loft and we had all we needed for a relaxing weekend. We will certainly try to stay again on our next trip!

LaWanda Royer

Owner's reply:

Gretchen, so glad you enjoyed your stay. This area is a bit of paradise when it comes to having it to ourselves! Just let me know when you are ready for another get away!
Thanks again for choosing Pelican Cay!

Dena Gray



It was everything me and my husband were looking for. Quite/ peaceful. Looking to rent again in about 2 weeks

LaWanda Royer

Owner's reply:

Thanks, Dena! Just let me know when you have firmed up your time. So glad you got the rest you both wanted!

Kim Guess

College Station, TX

Really Close to beach!

Perfect for 2 adult couples with children, or 3 adult couples and 1 child. The house was perfect for our needs and the air conditioner got the house really cool! The views are amazing from this house and the beach is so close we were able to haul all of our stuff for the kids easily without even breaking a sweat! Close enough for easy restroom and snack breaks for the kids. Super sweet and flexible management!

LaWanda Royer

Owner's reply:

Thanks, Kim, for the nice review! This is a family friendly home and so close to the sand. Have a great school year.

Pelican cay house

Our stay was fabulous. The beach was great and the grandkids had an absolute ball. Accommodations were comfortable and everyone had a fun relaxing vacation. One drawback was the huge Mosquitos but I can in no way blame that on the property. I will definitely consider renting here again

LaWanda Royer

Owner's reply:

Thank you for the nice review. So glad you had a great time! Sorry about the mosquitos. They were everywhere after the much needed rain.

Kimberly Van Horn Talbert

Saginaw, Tx USA

Great Stay!

It was a wonderful place to rent away from the crowded hotels. There was plenty of space for all of us. It had a full size refrigerator and kitchen. The half bath helped at bedtime when all the kids needed to brush their teeth. It is very close to Galveston city. There is plenty to do at the beach house or Galveston. The only down side was the toll to Galveston. It is $4.00 round trip. However, if you plan for it then you are all right.

LaWanda Royer

Owner's reply:

Thank you for being such a great guest! Sorry about the toll. We all complain about it, too, but it's like the Beltway, we do it and frown.

Blessed Weekend

We rented this beach house for the weekend with six teenage children. It could not have been a more beautiful weekend and we were blessed by the scenery. It is in a great location and the house is really nice inside with plenty of room and fully equipped with what you need in the kitchen. The downstairs shower is great. The view from the porch is wonderful any time of the day. The quantity and types of shells we found on the beach were unbelievable! It was a weekend we will not forget for a long time and we will definately be coming back hopefully next year. You could not rent from a better person than LaWanda.

LaWanda Royer

Owner's reply:

Thank you for your sweet words! I was glad to help when the house you booked had no air. I am glad I could help you. Have a blessed Thanksgiving!

Beverly Phillips

Houston, TX

fun out of the sun

The house is wonderful - lots of room - very comfortable - great deck to watch/listen to the surf. The beach, right over the crosswalk was nasty - oil pool and seaweed was oily. However you could walk about 100 yards and get away from the oil. Seaweed was still plentiful but normal for Texas beaches. The surf was clearer than usual so being in the water was great.

LaWanda Royer

Owner's reply:

Thank you, Beverly, for posting your experience. Unfortunately, this year has been more of a seaweed problem than most but as I just looked out, there's a little build up but not near the water. There was none until late yesterday and it came in with some small bugs that drove my extended family crazy. They look to be gone now. It's just one of the beach things you can never guarantee. I will ask the State to take a look at the oil because it is under their control.

3 Days of Relaxation

Our kids and grandkids came down from Tennessee for a visit and we thought it would be nice to take the grandkids for their first time at the beach. We had the best time! I'm hoping we can make this a yearly family vacation.

LaWanda Royer

Owner's reply:

Thank you so much and I am glad you enjoyed your stay!

arlington, texas

pelican cay

great view of the ocean ,easy access to beach, very comfortable sleeping quarters, good air conditioning, internet access and TV/DVD player - easy to use - just take mosquito repellant as you would to any vacation if being outdoors during the evening distance to galveston is about 30 mins. and you will have to pay a $2.00 toll each way

LaWanda Royer

Owner's reply:

Henrietta, thank you for your review. I am sorry that it rained quite a bit during your stay and the rain always brings those pesky mosquito's! Unfortunately, we have to wait for the State to send their trucks out but we do spray the area routinely for them ourselves. Treasure Island is 23 miles to Galveston's center and even though there is a toll, it sure is a beautiful view going across. Most of our guest only go over a couple of times if that, so it never seems to be an issue. I guess I am used to the tolls because we have so many toll roads in Houston. At least, you can see why there would be a toll with the big expanse of highway over the ocean. Thanks again for choosing Pelican Cay for your beach vacation.

Beautiful Home!

My family and I had a fantastic time during our stay. The house is extremely clean and everything is brand new. It is nicely decorated and extremely roomy. The location is great because it is close to everything. The owner answered all my questions and was extremely helpful. We plan to rent this property again during another vacation to Galveston!! I have nothing but POSITIVE things to say about this property and my dealings with the owner.

killeen texas

view was amazing

The view was amazing. We spent lots of time on the deck looking at it. The swimming area was very close(within walking distance) and used as much as the surprise storm would allow. The neighborhood was quiet and the people were very friendly. The house was neat and clean and had more supplies than we expected. I did get the necessary relaxation time needed and would recommend the property for this reason.

Christine Brock

Harker Heights, TX

A great way to spend spring break

I rented the place with my 2 teenage daughters, and our dogs. The place was very nice, real close to the beach. We had great weather every day, so my girls went to the beach everyday. It was very nice and relaxing with comfortable beds and one of my girls loved sleeping in the loft. The people are very friendly. The place has all the utensil you need to make meals. It was clean and tidy. There's even a little bait shop close by if you need something extra. We were very relaxed and we didn't travel anywhere, staying there was enough. The shower downstairs was nice to clean the sand off from the beach, it even has hot water. Sitting out on the deck drinking coffee in the morning and watching DVDs at night. I usually don't leave reviews but this was an awesome place to stay to get away from the stress of everyday life.

LaWanda Royer

Owner's reply:

Christy, I am so glad you and your girls had the chance to relax. I know that was the most important thing to you for the girls to leave the stress of school behind! The owners and I appreciate your kind words and hope that in the future, you have time to come back and enjoy Pelican Cay again. Thank you for being such a great guest!

We Had A Great Time At The Beach House It Was What My Family Needed Like To Do It Again Soon.

Relaxing Beach Vacation

We found Pelican Cay very inviting and relaxing. The home is very charming, clean, and comfortable and had everything we needed (including internet access). The beach is so near that you can take an early walk along the water and then come back to have coffee on the deck looking out at the ocean. We liked visiting the beach early, coming back to the home during the hottest part of the day, and then returning for more fun in the water. Love the outdoor shower for washing off the salt and sand! Lots of wildlife, which we also enjoyed. Can't wait to return!

Nice Family Vacation

We enjoyed our time at this spacious home. My husband and I brought our 7 year old, our dog and my parents and had plenty of room. Our only complaint was that in the evenings, the mosquitos almost carried us away, especially downstairs. It may have just been the time of year, but bring loads of OFF just in case. LaWanda was great. Met us locally for deposit and key exchange.

Amber Herrin

Kirbyville, TX

great place to stay

our family consists of me and my husband and 3 children one is 15,one is 8 and the other is 2 years old. It is usually hard to find something all of my children can enjoy together because of their age differance. but we all had a great time. Very family oriented and not crowded. the cabin was perfect and i loved bein able to sit on the front porch and watch the kids play when we wanted a break from the sun. definatly would go back.


Childress, Tx

Amazing family vacation!

Our family so enjoyed spending our beach time at Pelican Cay! This was our second trip and the owners have done so many nice things to this beautiful home. The new big screen TV was super, as were the confy barstools. There is some seasweed but it is everywhere and at least, no oil! If you want to take your family to the beach and make some great memories, book this home! Your kids will thank you for it! Thanks to the owners for sharing their home and thank you, Lawanda, for putting up with my million questions!

Plano, TX USA

Most relaxing vacation ever!

We just returned from spending a week at Pelican's Cay and we had a wonderful time. The beach was great...kind of like having your own private beach. Access to the beach was easy, the house was lovely (only wish it had another full bathroom), the location was perfect (if, like us, all you want to do is relax). We left the house only twice..once to go to Walmart and once to attend a wedding. It's a fairly long drive into Galveston but exactly what we were looking for. We plan to book again for next year!

LaWanda! You can tell your friends that they have quite the "jewel" as their realtor! You made me feel like we were already buds and that our stay was more of a "visit" than a rental agreement. Calvin and I found Pelicanscay to be a wonderful respite from our day to day. Just what we needed. A little relaxation, long sea induced sleeps and a bit of a tan to take back to Katy. (who am I kidding? I'm more red than tan!) Those late afternoon dips in the sea were truly refreshing. Seriously, we could have used a week or two of this. ;-) Thanks for your hospitality. Looking forward to the next "visit"! Thanks again.

Brillant Beach Vacation

We had a wonderful time staying in this property.As told it was ready to stay in. It was very clean and comfortable. There is a shower outside which was very useful aswe could rinse off the sand from the beach,especailly with children. The lady organising our stay was excellant, exteremly helpful and did not mind when we rang her to ask questions concerning the area. The view of the sea from the house was wonderfully. We would highly recommend a stay at this house.

J. McIntire

Pampa, Texas

Great family fun!

Just had to add my review to your great home. I was a little worried when I read the part about going over some rocks for the kids but this home met our needs and price range. There is no problem with rocks if you just go over the walkover provided. My two year old had no problems so maybe that has been fixed or something..We saw so many dolphins and had a great picnic on the beach. Sitting on the deck was so relaxing, we had a hard time going in at night. We hope to bring our parents next time so we can have a little more time on the deck while Grandma has fun with the kids. Thanks for letting us come last minute. We so appreciated it.

Are Family Trip

We really enjoyed are stay. Plenty of room for are large family. They worked really well with accomadating my family and I so we could have a great vaccation. The house is very nice and makes you feel at home. Only reason for it being four star is that the beach access is not great for younger children. Harder for them to get down over the rocks to the beach. But the beach was beautiful and clean. The kids did love it. Are family enjoyed sitting on the deck watch and hearing the waves, bar b queing and relaxing. Which made it a great vaccation.....Owners are great people...I would love to go back.......



Really nice!

We had a wonderful time. It was perfect for our family and very relaxing!

Great Value for the Money

We really enjoyed the way the house was set up. The kitchen was equipped well, the beach is just a few steps away, and it was not crowded at all. We will definitely book again next year.

Dr. Faucet


Great view, nice home!

Great home and good fishing at the Pier. My kids loved the beach. We had the place to ourselves. Good family home for our family. We had enough room to bring another, however.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What are the most fun things to do at your vacation rental?
A: We have 12 miles of beach that is great for families. We are away from the crowded beaches of Galveston, although they are only a half hour away should you wish to be part of that. Fishing in this area is exceptional, and there is a public boat ramp within 1/4 mile of our home. A favorite pastime of many of our guests is simply sitting on the deck, visiting with family and friends and watching the waves roll in. Should the weather turn rainy, we have games, books and videos for our guests to pass the time when they have to be indoors.
Q: What makes our vacation rental special?
A: Our home is clean and well cared for. The owners occupy this home approximately 6 - 8 weeks per year, and are constantly making improvements and upgrades. We have great water views and because we are away from the Galveston crowds, our home and neighborhood is quiet and safe. We also have full time security in our neighborhood.
Q: What is the coolest nearby activity?
A: The answer to this question depends on what you wish to do. Check our list of nearby attractions to see all that is available within a one half hours drive from our home.
