About Richard D

We moved to Galveston from the DFW area in 2005. Started buying and remodeling homes for vacation rentals in 2007. We fell in love with Galveston and all the people on the Island. We have very much enjoyed sharing our homes with guests coming for a visit to Galveston.

Richard D purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Richard D chose San Jacinto

The home is in a perfect location. Central to everything on the Island. It is a short walk to the beaches, and about 1/2 mile to the new Pleasure Pier.

Wonderful House, Incredibly Spacious, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This has been our second year staying at this house for Memorial Day and we loved it as much as the first. Everything you need is available, it's a short bike ride to anywhere you would want to go and it easily fit our group comfortably. Looking forward to booking this for next year and having a great time all over again!

Nice stay in Blue Dolphins

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our family stay in this beautiful and comfortable beach house, just three blocks from Seawall and very close to many entertainment places. Many things could be better, but we were satisfied with what we received. Very satisfied with the prompt response of the owners to our concerns. Congratulations and thank God for such a great vacation, sincerely Rene

Dolphin's Run Visit

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to state that this mini vaca was perfect for me and my family. The house was perfect, clean, and cool. Minutes away from the beach and quiet. The next time we visit the Island, we will be contacting Ross to book again. Everything we expected!

Great location, sweet old house and very accommodating owners.

  • 5 of 5

We rent a house every Christmas in Galveston. This is the first house we rented that the owners decorated it with a Christmas tree and decorations in every room. We had a small problem on Christmas Eve where we had to call the owner for help. He was very responsive and the problem was resolved in 20 minutes.
