About Donald (Don) Greenstein

Don and Nancy Greenstein: We are an educated and retired (33 years married) couple that live year round in the main residence on the property. Don is a native Houstonian whose family summer vacationed in the Galveston Bay area since the 1950s, Nancy is a retired business-owner from Ft. Wayne, IN. We have lived in the Galveston Bay area together for many years. The area is private, romantic and relaxed; the climate is semi-tropical with warm bay breezes year round. We enjoy boating, dining, golfing and family activities on the property and on Galveston Bay.

Donald (Don) Greenstein purchased this cottage in 1996

Why Donald (Don) Greenstein chose Texas

Don is a Houston native and has vacationed in the Bacliff/Bayview/Kemah, TX area all his life. I love the area's climate, water entertainment access and relaxed style of living. The seafood dining in the area is unmatched in the state of Texas. The productivity of offshore fishing in the Gulf of Mexico off the Galveston coast is unmatched in the U.S. The South Texas coast is the premier site saltwater entertainment mecca of the Houston area and South eastern Texas. This property has the best view (270 degree) of the Galveston Bay and the Houston Ship Channel that runs though it. Annually, on Fridays in the months of June and July there are waterfront hour-long fireworks displays that are visible from our waterfront decks. The wildlife (sea gulls, pelicans, porpoises) behavior displays from our decks are phenomenal.

What makes this cottage unique

There are only a few waterfront locations to stay on Galveston bay: ours is one of the most popular in the area. It is competitively priced and combines privacy, seclusion and cozy accommodation for a weekend get-away for busy working couples, honey-moon and anniversary couples either for short or extended stays. The panoramic views of Galveston Bay are exclusive to this property. We have operated this vacation rental for ten of the fifteen years we have lived here to rave (mostly five-star) reviews from locals and out-of-town travelers alike.

I enjoyed my stay at the cottage.

  • 4 of 5

The views were gorgeous. House allows easy access to the water for a quick swim. As well as the area is filled with many local restaurants and entertainment. Thank you for a great July 4th weekend. I will plan to book house again in near future. Perfect for a getaway, close to city.

Private, clean, great owners!

My husband and I spent our anniversary weekend here. It was very cozy and private with a wonderful, relaxing view! We had a minor issue with our dog who we brought along, and Don and Nancy were so sweet and understanding!! We're already looking at the calendar for our next stay.

Lovely respite

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at La Petit Maison was amazing. We were in between homes just sold ours and about to buy another one, but somehow we found this tranquil little place. So interesting with its character and attention to detail and the renters needs. There is a full kitchen with a dishwasher, microwave, stove, oven.. amazing. We spent the week of Christmas which involved wrapping gifts packing and unpacking, and had all the room we needed. The upstairs is devoted to bedroom with a wonderfully inviting king size bed, TV and functional desk.. plus two closets. I will also include that the bathroom especially the shower was more than adequate. Great hot and cold, good water pressure. Excellent. I haven't even mentioned the gorgeous water view, plus the use of the owners patio. Our pups enjoyed that so much!!.. Just a 180 degree view of beautiful bay water. Nicest place in Bayview!!

Mr. Greensteun, we would like to inform you that your cottage was awesome and very adequate!

  • 4 of 5

Our over all experience was fabulous. We very much enjoyed the accommodation of the cottage. We were very impressed with layout and the fact its such a small home with no wasted floor space. We were hoping to utilize the balcony for relaxation in the afternoons, but the weather was not totally cooperating. Commuting from place to place was an ease, with plenty of restaurants and convenience store just minutes away. The only disappointments is the large leafed plant blocking view of bay and a malfunctioning coffee pot. To inform future guest, come in a small vehicle, because parking was a challenge for my F150 Crew cab. Understanding the importance of reviews, I would recommend your cottage to couples and we hope to stay in it again in the near future! Over all, the cottage was a home run, scoring a 4 as well as our visit, not forgetting to mention it has a breath taking sunrise over looking the bay in the mornings.
