Once again... We had a very relaxing stay at Mari's beach getaway over the Christmas holiday. Large deck combined with spacious floor plan and awesome kitchen, made our enjoyable stay there that much better. Mari is super-responsive to any questions and communication is always in a timely manner. Thank you again for the hospitality Mari.

Great place for a beach getaway! Stayed here for the weekend with two families and had plenty of room. Beautiful house, big outdoor porch and easy trek to the beach. Was a little disappointed that we had to bring our own linens, but other than that it was a great stay. Mari was very helpful and responsive.

Mark . Jul 2018
We had a terrific time at the beach, Mari Kaye is a good host. We were comfortable and had everything we needed. She's clear with the house rules so we packed accordingly and were all set. Its a reasonable walk to the beach we didn't feel the need to drive or rent a golf-cart, although we see that many people do one or the other. The AC worked great we were comfortable and had all the room we needed, its a good sized house for 6 people.
Luis . Jul 2018
Mari is very responsive to all communications. Her property is located in a great area and it is exactly what she describes. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again!

Linda . Jun 2018
This place is a beautiful home. Very comfortable living room and a beautiful kitchen that has all you need to cook or bake during your stay. Bedrooms and bathrooms are roomy. The whole place is spotless and clean. The home is located a couple of blocks from the beach; very convenient location in a quiet neighborhood. The deck was a great place to hang out while barbecuing and enjoying the evenings. Mari Kaye was always quick to respond to any questions we had and even gave us some good tips on how to be more comfortable in her home. Also there are restaurants and even a kolaches and coffee shop nearby. We loved staying at Mari Kaye's house and would definitely stay here again.

An easy stroll to the beach too and so much great sea fishing too! Caught crab, shark and even a sting ray!

Gina . May 2018
We absolutely loved our stay at Comfy Cottage by the Sea! Our host went above and beyond to make sure the house was ready for our stay. The beach house was warm and invitin. And had everything we needed. We definitely plan on renting this wonderful place again and referring others as well.
Sarah . May 2018
My family and I had a great time! Close to the beach and very comfortable.
Michael . May 2018
Mari Kaye was great. She was very communicative and willing to let us host a family party, despite her concerns. The house had lots of space to hang out, to include underneath because it is on stilts. The house looked better than the pictures. The deck was big and had lots of seating, plus the kitchen beautiful. The location is not far from the beach and in a quiet neighborhood. We had a great time here.
Joe . Apr 2018

We had a lovely, relaxing weekend at Mari Kaye's. It's very homey and comfy, more like a home than just a beach cottage. Central AC, dishwasher, laundry, microwave, full kitchen, two full baths. The TVs have been upgraded since the photos were taken. They are flat screens with HDMI, so will work with your Roku/Apple/Chrome plugs and remotes from hom. Dish TB is provided. We really needed a break and the high quality king mattress, black-out window shades and very quiet neighborhood made for great sleeping!! Puzzles and games provided. The house is dog friendly: the deck is secured with a gate; the yard has big mowed grass area which is open and unfenced but perfect for quick relief on-leash. It's about 5 or 6 rows from the beach - short walk. People do drive on the beach and there is the occasional washed-up jellyfish, so dogs cannot run free, but it's great for walking and wading at the shore. Moderately busy (but we were there at the beginning of Spring Break).
Tina . Jul 2017
The house was very comfortable and had everything we needed. Just a couple of blocks to get down to the beach. Mari Kay was very informative and responsive to all of our questions (even while recovering from surgery!!) Our family really enjoyed our stay.
Laurie . Jun 2017
All the conveniences of home. Very clean, nice deck, and with easy access to the beach. Owner is easy to contact and responsive to text.
Linda . Jun 2017
The house was exactly as described. The deck was large and very comfortable, as was the house! Very close to the beach, with a wonderful breeze. The kitchen was large and had all the utensils you could possibly need. Mari Kaye was always available with any questions. We totally enjoyed our stay there and will stay again!
Stephanie . Jun 2017
The house was very cozy and we loved the location!!
Shanna . May 2017
This place is AMAZING! The pictures do not do it justice. It is gorgeous. Also has lots of homey touches. Not far from the ferry to Galveston and close to the local stores and within walking distance to the beach. Will definitely book again!
